When I was younger, my mom used to make an outstanding "country
pie," which was one of my favorite dishes ever. And, amazingly, it
achieved that status without me ever seeing a single commercial for
There is a big difference between what someone decides on his own
that he likes, and what someone has to be bludgeoned into "liking"
by constant advertising. There's nothing inherently evil about
advertising and trying to persuade someone, but obviously the
people who do the selling have something to gain. Likewise, if a
friend tells you that the joint down the street has the best
burgers, you're far more likely to believe him than a commercial
made by people who are PAID to say nice things about someone's
And so it is with politicians, too. It's not often that people
actually get excited about a candidate. Most people who want power
have to spend MILLIONS of dollars trying to persuade people to like
them. Why? Because there's nothing genuine about them worth liking,
so they have to perpetually advertise themselves.
Do you think anyone who knows Hillary Clinton personally would ever
say, "Gee, I want HER running my life!"? Not unless they DID inhale-
- -a lot. How about Rudy Giulliani? Let's see what that supposedly
great leader thinks, by considering his own words.
"We look upon authority too often and focus over and over again,
for 30 or 40 or 50 years, as if there is something wrong with
authority. We see only the oppressive side of authority. Maybe it
comes out of our history and our background. What we don't see is
that freedom is not a concept in which people can do anything they
want, be anything they can be. Freedom is about authority. Freedom
is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to
lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do."
So who on earth would get excited about THAT fascist lunatic
obtaining lots of power?
Mitt Romney? John McCain? Any of the other stuffed suits? If you
knew them in your daily lives, would you ever have said, "Gee, you
should run for President!"? Pretty darn unlikely. (Maybe, "Gee, you
should be a used car salesman.")
And then there is Ron Paul. Lots and lots of people WANT him to be
President--I mean genuinely want it, not because commercials told
them to, or because of slick propaganda and advertising, but
because, on their own, they can see the value of what he advocates.
They like what he says, and they want what he wants: freedom. And
those are the people now driving his campaign.
Day in and day out, all the status quo puppets who pass themselves
off as pundits tell you who you SHOULD support. And many of them
don't even bother to hide their utter contempt for the people's
choice: Ron Paul. It's obvious that they find it disgusting that
someone they DIDN'T push on you is getting any attention at all.
They are perpetual advertisers for the status quo, and to them, for
the lowly peasantry to come up with our own suggestion, is a slap
in their faces.
Well, keep on slapping. My mom's country pie was better than
anything I've ever seen advertised in a slick, expensive
commercial. And Ron Paul is better than anyone the establishment
would ever try to pawn off on you. While the various would-be
tyrants kiss up to their fellow rich, influential megalomaniacs, in
order to get the money to try to convince YOU to elect them, Ron
Paul is pushed by the "peasantry," while being resisted by the
In short, all the candidates running for office say they care about
you. Only one of them means it. And that is why only one is being
pushed by lots of regular Americans, instead of by establishment
