The Certain Success of the Ron Paul Revolution
If the questions asked can be controlled, then solutions to important problems don’t matter. But libertarians can make the obvious connection between a stupid question and a real problem, and that is why the ‘Big Bad Guys’ must keep Ron Paul out of any of the debates. (FREEDOM”S THE ANSWER…) And if they can’t keep Ron Paul out of the debates then the front runners can’t be allowed to be shown up by him. Even Nancy Reagan’s request for Republican Candidates to debate at the Ronald Reagan Library this May has not produced the expected race to participate since Ron Paul immediately accepted.

My first thought when I saw this news was, ‘I wonder how John McCain is going to dodge this one?’
For at least the past 20 years I have been paying attention, it has been painfully obvious that these “debates” are worthless distractions. I remember my high school years from 1975 to 1979 when we would openly make fun of the Russian electoral process with their multiple choice selection of Communist candidates and a near perfect voter turnout percentage. My particular attention to the electoral process gave me the early insight on what was happening and why. In America the people really did believe that they could make changes and were very insistent about it on a regular basis. This American trait had to be controlled in such a way that the effort could be directed away from the questioning of the source for the problems.
This concept was the underlying plot in the movie ‘The Matrix’. On a macro scale it is far more efficient to just work hard on getting the vast majority of minds to accept the program they’re forced to plug into. By giving people the ‘illusion of choice’ you can delay the recognition of very unpleasant things happening all around individuals. The resulting violence and mayhem inside the Matrix is of no concern to the central authority,… but even the slightest challenge to The Matrix itself and you can expect a team of ‘Agents’ with black suits, sunglasses and ear pieces to make a visit so they can explain things to you.
The last 10 years have used movies to provide ‘the injection of the libertarian infection into the bone marrow of worldwide political thinking,… for which there is no cure’. Don’t think so? This will help you understand what I am talking about. (MOVIE SHOW ON CHARLES’ SHOW)
“Atlas Shrugged” is a nice movie to end the 2008 election season with. (LINK FREEDOMSPHOENIX STORY HERE) With Angelina Jolie agreeing to play the lead female role (and rumors that Brad Pitt might join her) is certain to have an effect on the political landscape at a time that people are paying attention during an economic (here is where you put your favorite adjective).
Millions of people have lined up to _not vote_ and all of the computer vote rigging that can be mustered will have little effect on a populace informed about why their futures have been taken away from them, and their children and grandchildren. The Ron Paul Revolution has little to do with a single man. It is about an idea that was America. If America didn’t exist the world would dream of her coming,… at least this use to be the world’s sentiment. Now the coming of America is a nightmare to good people that have done us no harm. I fear what we are doing to people in foreign lands will be turned on us because I know how I would react if in their place. In fact it is so obvious to me that I can not stop suspecting that hatred and conflict are desired by those that profit most from it in various ways.
But war isn’t the only method for fleecing the American people and others willing to buy our debt. The exposure of the largest robbery in the history of history is being exposed faster than the bad guys can seek cover. I don’t know the result of such things becoming general knowledge to the world, but I don’t thing the guilty know either. If history is any indication there is going to be long line for at least a “metaphorical guillotine”.
Soon we’ll see many of the worst authoritarians openly supporting Ron Paul in an effort to be spared a place in the guillotine line. And who will ask that mercy be granted those responsible?... and what form should it take? Would an army of out of work bureaucrats be a threat to the newly restored Constitutional Republic? Would a life sentence of living without the means to ‘legally’ extract wealth from others be enough to cause their demise, or are their crimes worthy of something else?
You may think it too early to think about such things but I see the time quickly approaching when we will be presented with opportunities to demonstrate our commitment to principle and justice for the whole world to witness. I haven’t thought about it much myself and have no direction I wish to advocate on such matters of justice. I am more focused on stopping the harm being done. After that I suspect a great deal of effort is going to be required rebuilding the American Dream and relighting the Liberty Torch. But I do fear the fact that the bad guys keep returning. Eternal Vigilance is good advice, and communication improvements like the Internet sure do help.
But enough day dreaming,… the task at hand now is the injection of the infection, the rest will take care of itself. Yeah, I know that many don’t think this is enough. But time will tell and I am focused on the power of a freed mind. I often have people ask me why it is so difficult to open the eyes of the stubborn. Since my family attend a Christian church and my 4 children attended a Christian Jr/Sr High School for 6 years each, I have been exposed to more “W” bumper stickers than most people and I know from personal experience what others are referring to when they talk about closed minds. But as hard core no-compromising as I am known to be I can’t remember a single argument with any of these people I warmly refer to as my friends. I answer all questions put to me and make my positions clear. Asking them ‘zinger’ questions would only put any human on the defensive and shut down any thought process. My ‘slapping’ of government during a campaign is almost never directed at an individual, and is done for the education of those paying attention and the enjoyment of supporters.
The stubborn Christian that won’t ‘deny’ George W. Bush gives the impression to some that Bush/Republican Party/The Presidency/and the Savior are all linked in some way. But being up close with these individuals for many years I think it is something else.
Examination of what has happened to this country demands that people of good conscience to make a decision. So avoiding having to make that decision is the best defense for a mind and a life that is dependant on a paradigm that doesn’t change.
Counting on the leadership of large congregations to cooperate gets easier and easier the more the ‘organized church’ is entwined with the government with tax regulations, free speech restrictions during political campaigns and now faith based initiatives/bribes. But the tighter the fist the more that slips between the fingers of central planning.
History is full of examples of great turmoil and change when large numbers of families are exposed to financial hardship. Government programs designed to redistribute the wealth of a managed economy only make problems worse by eliminating the greatest incentive to find a non-coercive solution. The punishment of the productive people and the rewarding of the non-productive create a formula for disaster. It has been a long time coming but the time is very near that the lies about the financial condition will be known to the world. My personal goal is to make sure that my family survives so that the possibility of liberty on the other side of the collapse can be supported and enjoyed. And the more people that understand what has happened and why, the better chance we all have to restore The Republic. I have long advocated that no government is far preferable to the one we have now, but I would likely go back to enjoying the fruits of liberty if only the Bill of Rights were enforced.
