My name is Paul Monroe, and I am currently living in Winston-Salem and studying law at Wake Forest University. I am originally from Raleigh and I attended Appalachian State University in Boone as an undergrad.
The C4L movement and grassroots organization is a wonderful component of the anti-establishment coalition. I hope to be more active as a precinct leader once I figure out where I will be living for the next two years (getting married this December ).
My motivation for being a part of the C4L organization is my interest in political philosophy, current events, history, and activism! As Ron Paul says, freedom really does bring people together, and I believe that this is true across the entire anti-establishment spectrum. While I am an anarchist at heart, I feel that political action is both justifiable and necessary because the assault on our personal sovereignty on all fronts must be met by a defense of our liberty in the same areas.
My key belief is in the need for a massive decentralization of political power, and the decentralization of economic power that inevitably follows it. Once we get back to community-level government we can then have a great debate over the proper role of government (if there is one ) because the state and the debate will no longer be controlled by a powerful few. I'm looking forward to that debate and, in the mean time, also looking forward to working with fellow C4L members in bringing about a political revolution that is long overdue.
