I posted this on the Daily Paul, now I am posting here.
I am a 33 year old college student at the Community College of Allegheny County. I suppose I am a "remnant of society" that the good Dr. so often talks about. There are four campuses, and I am a student at the South campus in West Mifflin. The apathy at these schools is horrifying. No one seems to care expect for a very small group of students. Additionally, I have been involved with the student government association, and they can't even fill up all of their spots. They are supposed to have 4 officers and 8 Senators, but they were not even getting 12 people at their meetings until recently.
The organization in this area has been abysmal. I know there are people working on the delegate process, and I have stayed out of that because it is political in nature and I do not want my dirty laundry aired out for all to see. I am not a politician. I am just a person that will not stand by and watch the United States descend into a dictatorship.
I have no money, I am behind on my bills, and I live in what many people would consider a dump, and I have no financial resources to offer. Everyone keeps asking me for those stupid pieces of green paper that are meaningless. I don't have any!
I really need to organize a sign wave near the entrance to the college just to get these people talking. Almost all of them are asleep! I have no signs, I have no money to make signs, and I am enduring significant ridicule for the efforts I have made so far. I don't know anybody and I am not politically connected with anyone.
The problem here is that everyone keeps asking me what I can do for them. I can't do anything for you except maybe give you a ride, or help you record a radio show. I can also show you how to do some algebra. I am studying to become a teacher. I don't want to run for any office or anything for that matter. I wound up the president of the radio station because I was trying to protect liberty. I still am not sure how I got myself into this because I don't know what I am doing and I am in way over my head at this point.
To make matters worse, I was recently told by a faculty member at the college that there is a "limit" on free speech. I really don't know what that means, but I think I am in trouble and I need help. I feel like I am alone.
I have not spoken up because every time I do, everyone looks at me and thinks I am in charge, and then they start demanding that I do everything for them. I can't do that. I keep telling people that they should make their own decisions, but they don't listen.
Since I have gotten to know Dr. Paul through what he has said on youtube, I have taken it upon myself to live my life by the Constitution, and it has become my moral code. When people ask me what my religion is, I tell them it is liberty and that my beliefs do not require anything from anyone else except that they cannot impose their beliefs on me.
Let me tell you, my life has gotten so much better since I started living my life by the Constitution. I never believed in anything before, but I have faith in liberty because when I have applied it to my life, it has solved many problems for me.
So if there is anyone out there in the Pittsburgh area that can help me get something going here it would be appreciated.
