Ron Paul Revolution
Ron Paul ran for President in 2012. Obviously he didn’t win the election. In fact, he only finished 3rd in electoral votes in the Republican primary. While he wasn’t victorious there was some good news that came from his campaign. During his campaign his supporters coined the phrase the “Ron Paul Revolution” as the slogan for his campaign. Within the words of the slogan, the word “love” spelled backwards is highlighted with red letters. There may never have been a better word to focus on in any political campaign. Love!
The U.S. government has a lot of issues, to say the least. There is no way to sugar coat this. Our system is broken and many of our governing officials are corrupt beyond measure. What’s needed more than anything in our government right now is love. It sounds over-simplified and unrealistic, but wow what a change it could make if our elected officials loved Jesus and loved people instead of valuing themselves and special interests above others.
What would our nation look like if members in Congress, Judges and even our President lived out these verses? What would our nation look like if we, as citizens, valued our love for one another more than we valued being right? “Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
