Still Finding RP People

I recently went back to work at the chemical plant where I've spent close to half of my life and pretty much all of my working life. Today, I was working with a guy that up until the last few days I hadn't seen in years.  As I was putting on a climbing harness, I saw a little circle on his hard hat. Sure enough... it said, "RON PAUL". I have a few stickers just like it.

I struck up a conversation about it and he told me he had been a RP supporter since '88. He also told me there was another guy in my new area of the plant who was a RP supporter. Turns out he was a guy I've known for years, too!

I left the plant in '09 and hadn't really seen those guys, other than the occasional 'howdy' around the site since the 90s or early 2000s. The first guy even said he voted for Badnarik, Sophocleus, and several other liberty minded candidates that I also voted for, back in the day.  He went on to say he was fed up with voting and leaning towards not voting anymore, just like myself and many other people who have grown tired of the corruption and dishonesty within the system.

I guess it could go without saying that it was a very pleasant surprise and lets me know I'm working around some pretty smart people.
