Yes, Virginia, There Is a Ron Paul

Dear Editor:
I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Ron
Paul. Papa says “If you see it in The Sun it’s so.” Please tell
me the truth; is there a Ron Paul?

Virginia O’Hanlon.


Your little
friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of
a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think
that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little
minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men’s or children’s,
are little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect,
an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about
him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole
of truth and knowledge.

Yes, Virginia,
there is a Ron Paul. He exists as certainly as peace and freedom
and prosperity exist, and you know that they abound and give to
your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be
the world if there were no Ron Paul! We should have no enjoyment,
except in sense and sight. The eternal light with which liberty
fills the world would be extinguished.

Not believe
in Ron Paul! You might as well not believe in the Constitution!
The media might hire polling firms that conceal Ron Paul’s true
level of support among the people, but what would that prove? Nobody
can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable
in the world.

No Ron Paul!
Thank God, he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from
now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, he will
continue to make glad the hearts of free men.

Perhaps the
line above should read, “Papa says, ‘If you see it at LRC it’s so.'”
