Can a Political Minority Ever Become the Majority?
Not too long ago, when Ron Paul first ran for President, those in the freedom mindset were in a minority, made fun of and politically destroyed. Ron Paul ran in 2008, and took off. Why? Because, he received opposition. Those who receive opposition attract the attention of many people who would never of noticed if the person had just been talking to the wall. This opposition took him to the debates, and in those debates, he publicly crushed the fake, conservative, status quo candidates before millions.
A great example of this would be Thomas E. Woods book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History. It would of been one of those awesome books that would only have been read by some bookworm professors, if at all, and totally ignored. Instead, it was “debunked” by pointing out that it was different. All this did was make it a New York Times bestseller, awakening many to the strange, but true, facts of history.
Now, freedom, nullification and Austrian Economics are more popular now then they ever were. Why is it that the minority view, held by a small remnant, the view that once ran against the status quo, though true, has received more attention now and is now nearly the majority view? Perhaps because people get tired of hearing half the truth, or none of the truth in some cases, and are starving for truth. When they hear it, they grab onto it. “Buy the Truth, and sell it not!” (Proverbs 23:23).
