Ron Paul and the Future by Lew Rockwell

Great Ron Paul tribute by Lew Rockwell. Lew Rockwell is so right - there are many folks, such as myself, who waited 40 years for this campaign to arrive and this day to arrive. It won't be squandered and we've got an awesome Revolution for Liberty in progress.
One of the most thrilling memories of the 2012 campaign was the sight of those huge crowds who came out to see Ron. His competitors, meanwhile, couldn't fill half a Starbucks. When I worked as Ron’s chief of staff in the late 1970s and early 1980s, I could only dream of such a day.
