It’s not easy to lose a son

December 31, 2011

I posted a new page in memory of my youngest son, who passed away Thursday night: We called him “David“:

We will miss him.

New York Lawmakers Reportedly Ask For Mercy For Tourist Arrested With Gun At 9/11 Memorial | Fox News

December 31, 2011

There they go again:
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2011/12/30/new-york-lawmakers-reportedly-ask-for-mercy-for-tourist-arrested-with-gun-at-11/?intcmp=obinsite

Add to that this persecution of “Tea Party leader”, charged with no less than a FELONY using an unjust law in a manner that is unreasonable and unjust both, besides the law and the application both being unconstitutional anyway:
http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/12/tea_party_leader_mark_meckler_arrested_with_handgu.php

It makes one wonder whether maybe his name was on Janet Napolitano‘s enemy list. Remember that one? Half the population of America is on her hit list. With the Obama-Clinton foreign policy now clearly in favor of facilitating the assassination of American citizens whenever the Assassin-in-Chief says so, that means half of us are possible targets.

A lot people feel like “It can’t happen here”. A lot of Jews in 1930’s Germany said the same thing, while a minority of them with the means and with their eyes open got out. Half of us have a foreboding about this; a lot of my fellow Christians, again those with the means and with their eyes open, have found homes elsewhere.

There were lots of Germans, Jews and Gentiles both, in the 1930s, whose response to the warnings was the same as we here today from many people, “I stop listening to an argument when somebody mentions the Nazis, the discussion is over”.

The American Legion feels targeted in the Obama-Napolitano hit list, for good reason. Right-to-lifers and Constitutionalists are on there, feeling crosshairs on their backs, hoping that their fellow citizens will do what’s right and help stop the march toward tyranny, and practice a true “tolerance” like one would expect from the meaning of the word.

The land of free speech is turning into the land of hate speech–speech they hate and are trying to ban.

Pooh pooh they say, but one of Teddy Kennedy‘s last efforts before he went to meet his Maker, was to try to set up a Thought Police that would watch for banned “hate speech”. Things like “Choose Life”, “In God We Trust” in the wrong place, like “We should follow the Constitution”.

Her hate list/hit list was almost plagiarized with variations from the SPLC hate list of “patriot” organizations:

http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/intelligence-report/browse-all-issues/2010/spring/active-patriot-groups-in-the-united-s

Constitution Party is on there of course. John Birch Society is there of course. Oath Keepers (who swear they will obey the Constitution). And “Truth Radio” whatever that is. I guess they’re going to use radio waves (maybe TCP-IP packets) to do damage.

The Constitution Party denounces the “war on terror” as an excuse to increase government power, something that was almost an official Democratic Party platform during the George W Bush presidency. But like in 1984, the “Inner Party” rulers seem to decree what the media and populace, and so in lockstep, suddenly under what they call the “other” major political party, what was too much scary government power became now a subversive thought.

Houston Chronicle lies about Ron Paul. Ron Paul says END THE RACIST DRUG LAWS!

December 31, 2011

Okay one more time: Like Ron Paul’s campaign manager told the Houston Chronicle, and like Ron Paul has said many times himself, and as the Houston Chornicle itself acknowledges they were reminded,

Paul’s campaign chairman, Jesse Benton, told us earlier this week that the newsletters were written by a ghostwriter in Paul’s name, but he admitted that Paul “should have better policed it.”

“Dr. Paul has assumed responsibility, apologized for his lack of oversight and disavowed the offensive material,” said Benton.

So there you go. It has already been answered, including in 2008 by the head of the NAACP himself as motivated by the fact that Ron Paul challenges entrenched money powers.

Again, Bring it on! Ron Paul‘s detractors in Big Crony Corporate Media is getting desperate, like in this article repeating the “racist” lies:

http://blog.chron.com/rickperry/2011/12/in-1996-paul-acknowlegded-bashing-barbara-jordan-in-a-newsletter/

They say he “acknowledged” writing the one article about Barbara Jordan in 1996, but then quotes him as saying he did NOT write it.

But looking over both the Houston Chronicle‘s history and Ron Paul’s history, everybody who is anybody around him knows that you can trust him at his word better than the Houston Chronicle or any other political figure they might endorse.

Since Ron Paul is getting growing numbers based on the ideas and policy he represents with the credibility of his proven honesty reflected in his record, they now have to tell sneaky serpentine lies. This tactic will backfire, because the more blacks get interested in the subject, the more they will find that he is THE anti-racist candidate.

I have learned to look not only between the lines in Crony Corporate Mass Media reports, but also make sure you are peeking behind the lines. That’s the reporting they’re leaving out.

With all the resources of all these news agencies, newspaper staffs, and broadcast and cable networks ALL now coming down hard on Ron Paul, you KNOW that if they wanted to, in my opinion, they could have tracked down the REAL author of those articles a LONG time ago.

For example, I would not be surprised to find out that the guy was an infiltrator meant to sabotage any future chances for Ron Paul as an honest libertarian pushing the gold standard. That’s exactly the best explanation for the guy at the one Republican debate that yelled out “Let him die”. No doubt that was either a neo-con plant or one of these guys the Democratic Party handlers sent out to Tea Party rallies with racist signs.

All that did during the tea party rallies was to showcase a parade of black folks joining in the rallies and presenting themselves to the media. The media still pretended they didn’t exist, just like they do with Exodus International and other groups of ex-“gays”.

This was old news a long time ago, but black folks are not stupid and can smell a trick. This might just open their eyes to other history relating to the entrenched two-party cartel they have been willing to forgive and forget so far.

But now, when they realize that Ron Paul is the ANTI-racist, avowed ENEMY of all Jim Crow laws everywhere, and that all that government has done to “fix” racism has only institutionalized the prior status quo and made it worse.

Maybe they will now remember that the Democratic Party was the party of slavery and the party of JIM CROW laws in the South and the northern and western wings of the party embraced it even so, until the Republicans in the Congress joined John F Kennedy in the Civil Rights Bill.

Ah yes, when black folks realize that Ron Paul’s opposition to Jim Crow laws are the same ones that caused him concern about the Civil Rights act, they will enthusiastically support him, because it is rooted precisely in Martin Luther’s own idea of treating persons as individuals instead of members of groups:

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

And, besides that, the principle of individual freedom that says black folks and white folks and all folks have a natural right to associate with whom they please.

Plus the pragmatic factor that government intervention in private lives and in private businesses often results in the effect opposite to that intended.

Ron Paul has pointed out in fact that segregation and racism was a government-enforced legal regime in the Old South, it was NOT something people were doing on their own, and that he is opposed to Jim Crow on the same grounds, besides being personally repulsed by the idea of dividing people into groups.

Okay one more time: Like Ron Paul’s campaign manager told the Houston Chronicle, and like Ron Paul has said many times himself, and as the Houston Chronicle itself acknowledges they were reminded,

Paul’s campaign chairman, Jesse Benton, told us earlier this week that the newsletters were written by a ghostwriter in Paul’s name, but he admitted that Paul “should have better policed it.”

“Dr. Paul has assumed responsibility, apologized for his lack of oversight and disavowed the offensive material,” said Benton.

So there you go.

Ron Paul is under fire for regarding people as individuals instead of as only members of groups, for looking at freedom for individual human beings of any color instead of dividing them up, and under fire for blasting the idea that we should use government to tell a black person, or any person, who their friends can be and who they have to deal with.

He is under fire for telling us that people should be free as individuals, not groups.

And for fighting to remove the barriers to economic freedom because those government-imposed barriers keep us all down. We want all people to be free.

END THE RACIST DRUG LAWS!

END THE RACIST WAR ON DRUGS!

END THE RACIST COCAINE-CRACK LAWS!

 

Keynesians, Hungary, Honduras and Leftist Hypocrisy

December 30, 2011

Krugman and company criticize Hungary’s new leaders and their constitution.

And this criticism is from the same ones who wanted to slap down Honduras for defending its own freedom from the EXACT SAME things they complain about here. Such haughty hypocrisy from the ones who wanted to put the socialist dictator and Chavez-Castro puppet Manuel Zelaya back into his seat of power, after he refused a dozen laws and court orders to try to legitimize his coup with an unconstitutional fraud.

No wonder Americans are sick and tired of Big Money Big Government Liars Media, arm of the government-media complex and guppies of the Wall Street bankers that run the Federal Reserve and their currency monopoly.

God is not mocked. Whatsoever a man seweth that shall he also reap. Goes around comes around. Krugman’s name will be dirt in the history books. Pushing more Keynesian debt major failures is the poster boy for “Don’t know much about history”.

December 30, 2011

Here is my answer to one or another hysterical anti-Ron Paul rant:

Ron Paul is the anti-racist:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pTgp3vF-eM

What other candidate promises to stop the federally pushed total institutional racist war on drugs, which puts up to 5X more blacks into prison per arrest rate that whites? And who is the one blasting the racist drug laws that by law and by judicial decision make much more brutal sentences.

This is all a distraction from the real issues that are attracting people of all kinds and backgrounds to Ron Paul’s cause. Anti-gay? I’ve met enthusiastic gays at Ron Paul rallies. Blacks? I’ve won blacks over the cause who asked for extra issues cards to give to their own friends. As soon as awareness of what Ron Paul stands for reaches critical mass among blacks, it’s all over for Obama.

Freedom brings all kinds of people together to support Ron Paul’s message and platform: blacks, whites, Latinos, rednecks, anarchists, former mainstream Democrats, former mainstream Republicans, gays, straights, atheists, Bible-thumping preachers, liberal theologians and conservative theologians, more soldiers than the other candidates, women, men, feminists, strippers and prudes, gun owners, business owners, technologists, software engineers and lawyers, corporate executives and blue collar workers, almost anything you can think of except for crony capitalist supporters and socialists who want more government power!

He is against the institutional racism of the drug laws and the drug wars.

He is the one we can count on to stop the mad rush to use the American military to enforce goodness on the world.

He is the one admitting the failure of American interventionist policy around the world.

His policies would return the nation to a truly strong national self-defense. The United States is sgoing broke and its military is about to crash and burn against the wall of economic catastrophe brought about by fiat currency with no independent value. Bringing the soldiers home to bases, and there is plenty of room for them on US soil, would mean spending that money at home and soldiers to protect our borders. Releasing the oil that has been banned by fiat would release the country from sovereignty-killing dependence on foreign imports.

Besides which, this is no pansy for abuse by those who would interfere with trade by Americans. Citizens could feel safer abroad. He excoriated Congress and the President for their neglect of the constitutional use of letters of marque and reprisal, rewards for those who kill or capture anyone who after Congressional debate is determined to be a real threat to American interests.

I think Somali pirates would take note. A letter of marque and reprisal for someone who was attacking US merchant ships for ransom might have to face an army of his own kind of pirates seeking the reward money. You think that’s ugly, you should see the army of the kind of people our most respected district attorneys use for informants.

So President Paul that got his wish list, at least at the federal level, would mean the end of institutionally racist drug laws, savings from the end of ineffective drug wars, a MUCH stronger national defense, a MUCH stronger currency, a MUCH stronger economy, MANY more resources for the multitude of charities helping the poor from the spillover of a much richer nation, and a population much less afraid of government abuse.

 

Do not trust Internet voting EVER!

December 30, 2011

There’s a new ad on some of the political and news web sites that calls itself  “Americans Elect” that claims it’s not a third party, BUT IT IS A “THIRD PARTY“. Liars, liars, pants on fires.

This is an ad-driven thing, not a grassroots insurgency like the Ron Paul campaign.

So I want to know, where did the money for all these purchased ads come from, WHO is paying for them? And how many layers does it have to pull back to see who is behind the curtain?

I have nothing against a third party, there are a lot of them that are better than the two monsters that presently are practically our masters. They’re getting another line on the ballot in different states, they’re claiming they will have all 50 states. They claim that Americans will directly participate and nominate their candidate of choice by the thousands in an “on-line convention” in June.

I’m a software engineer, and DO NOT BELIEVE FOR A MOMENT that anybody can “secure” a nominating or a voting process like that. A “printable receipt” is NOT a sufficient recourse for recounts for example, though the real masters of this “independent” process will claim it’s not necessary.

They’ll have a technical panel that will “guarantee” the security of the process.

I have worked on banking software, and they had more security than anybody else, and you trust it and I trust it with the ATM. But YOUR VOTE IS MUCH MUCH MORE VALUABLE THAN YOUR BANK ACCOUNT.

And we all know how many banks have lost our data to cyber crackers.

Like some of the experts who have testified before Congress about electronic voting say, THERE IS NO PROTECTION –AT ALL, AT ALL– AGAINST THE ADMINISTRATORS OF THE SYSTEM.

No, when it comes to voting, there is no substitute for a hard copy of a vote in a physically secured location stored not in secret but openly and publicly where not just party representatives but anybody at all can watch.

Me, I have said for decades that the two-party political cartel that passes laws that keep its members in power and keeps other groups out is unfair and is unequal treatment under the law and keeps new alternatives out and the incumbent scoundrels in. It rigs the system to offer one of two party-boss selected candidates that do basically the same thing over the years. During administrations of both faces of this two-faced political system, the government has only grown, unconstitutional undeclared wars continue apace, nation-building by the military continues instead of self-defense, crony capitalism and phony welfare-ism only grows, the debt only multiplies, budget “cuts” are really budget increases that are less than original proposals, and the Federal Reserve continues to gush rivers of phony currency and manipulate the money supply and play whiplash with the economy and give us zig-zag recessions and lead us headlong toward monetary catastrophe.

Now we have an actual alternative emerging from the Republican Party nominating process, an upstart that embarrasses the big-money powers-that-be and party bosses, and has a chance to turn the country around.

Ron Paul has earned that trust. Trust is earned, not a “right”.

This new Internet party does not convince me. It has not earned my trust at all. I suspect it will be a media-driven thing that will be beholden to the architects that set it up. They are in the invisible background. Who is behind this thing, that kind of ad money did not come from a spontaneous grassroots thing!

I want to know, where did the official funding for all these purchased ads come from, and from whom, because by knowing what tree this new branch spouts from, we’ll know the rest.

Do NOT trust software or computer technicians, they are just as corruptible as anybody.

 

Ron Paul and the dangers of rogue government

December 29, 2011

It’s disingenuous to casually dismiss Ron Paul‘s position on Iran as being one of “casually brush aside the danger of nuclear weapons in the hands of Iran, the world’s leading sponsor of international terrorism“.

Because in doing so you “casually brush aside” the obvious epic failures the United States has reaped from the previous recent attempts to meddle in the affairs of nations like Iraq and Afghanistan. Do you think active military –that’s right, active military– are “casually brushing aside” the dangers of “rogue nations” like Iran, when they contribute more to Ron Paul’s campaign than to any other including Obama‘s? And though it is common knowledge that active military has favored Republican presidential candidates in the past, this time around they are telling us that they have more trust in Ron Paul as the best leader in these troubled times.

Israel already has at least 150 nuclear weapons (that we know about). By the time Iran gets one, Israel may have 300. Poor Iran if it uses just one bomb, and if somebody sneaks one in one Jerusalem, you can count on the Mossad to know who did it, and poor country that gets a rain of fire from that kind of foolishness.

Now they’re pushing the Jews against Ron Paul, as if US policy as applied by all these other guys has been effective. How’s that workin’ out for you? WHO is one of the few who voted against condemning Israel for bombing Iraq’s nuclear site? Ron Paul of course, who says we should let them sort it out as they see fit instead of tying their hands.

Nope, good thing the people, the grassroots, the farmer, the peasant, the laborer and the clerk are all paying attention to rational arguments rather than distorted caricatures of Ron Paul’s positions.

 

Electric cars and coal-fired generating plants

December 29, 2011

The electric cars on the road today require recharging from sources that get power grids that in national aggregate transmit power about half of which is generated in coal fired plants.

This was a point made by Thomas Sowell in his column:

The electric car efficiency issue was used to illustrate how to think past what we are told to think by the arrogant class that thinks of the rest of us as “the masses”.

The real issue is the forcing of dictates by a group upon everyone else, whether the group is any kind of minority or majority. If one wants to talk about adapting the ideas of the Declaration of Independence to modern times, then  “Consent of the governed” must be considered as applying to each individual person.

It’s time for what I call “Golden Rule Government”. The government should be bound by the same rules that bind our neighbors, and that bind us in our relationships to our neighbors. If no one should rob his neighbor or steal from him, then groups of neighbors should be equally constrained, whether they form a mob, a Mafia, or a monarchy, or oligarchy, or elected government.

This is why Ron Paul is the only one who is making sense out of the bunch of candidates for president.

 

 

Media lies and spin about Ron Paul

December 28, 2011

Dick Polman’s inanities in a Boston Herald article revisits the list of why leftists who love Big Government don’t like Ron Paul, telling Republicans –in an insulting way– why they should not vote for him. It exposes exactly the kind of inanities, to use his own word, of today’s oligarch-directed politics that passes for acceptable to lock-step media (note that I did not say “goose-stepping media”):

http://bostonherald.com/news/opinion/op_ed/view/2011_1227iowas_inanities_suit_pauls_cause_caucuses_only_get_weirder_by_moment/

DON’T LET THE MEDIA TELL YOU WHAT TO THINK –READ BETWEEN THEIR LINES

It is an example of why Americans are sick and tired of being told what to think, who to vote for, who is electable and unelectable, and sick and tired of being told they can only choose between bad and worse for their elected officials.

That’s why I picked it as a good way to answer the author’s own inanities and show again why people are gathering to Ron Paul who represents what Americans already believe about basic principles, and who helps demonstrate how to apply them.

“RANK AND FILERS”

Dick says: “Most GOP rank-and-filers are apoplectic about Paul’s ascent — as well they should be.”

No, Dick, not “rank and filers”. It’s the Republican hierarchy in checkered pants who are worried as they play a round of 18 links. The rank-and-filers are the ones who are discovering than not only do they agree with most of what Ron Paul says, not only are they accepting that the rest of it makes sense, not only do they realize that Ron Paul is the one with the best mastery of all his subjects especially the ones that the nation needs right now. They have discovered the difference between an honest Joe –that is, an honest Ron Paul– and a professional politician.

JUST LIKE GHANDI, FIRST THEY IGNORED US, THEN THEY LAUGHED AT US, NOW THEY’RE FIGHTING US

Now that Ron Paul is poised to actually win the Number One spot in the Iowa caucuses, the author says Iowa doesn’t count for anything. That’s what they lockstep (I didn’t say goose step) Oligarch Media will say if it happens.  They’ll say it doesn’t matter for the nomination or the election, never mind that Jimmy Carter won in 1976 and went on to win the Dem. nomination (like this guy admits), and never mind that’s where Dean flamed out most famously in 2004.

RON PAUL IS MAINSTREAM AMERICA, WHAT AMERICANS REALLY WANT: SOUND CURRENCY, SOUND FISCAL POLICY, RATIONAL FOREIGN POLICY, AND FREEDOM

Note that even though here he is, first in Iowa polls, and the strongest second in New Hampshire, and despite being the candidate who has the ONLY chance to beat Obama in 2012 according to several polls,  this clueless Dick Polman still yet calls him “cranky fringe candidate”.

Hey, Dick, didn’t you get the memo? He’s not “fringe” anymore! And none of his colleagues call him “cranky”! We the people are NOT “fringe”!

THE GOVERNMENT IS A “SAFETY NET”!!??  WHAT?! WHO TOLD YOU THAT AND WHY DID YOU BELIEVE HIM?!

Mr. Clueless says he “wants to erase the safety net”.

Hey Dick, didn’t you get the memo? The “safety net” has been ruled hazardous to your retirement and your health, and has a multitude of holes in it! It’s so crowded it’s about to crash and burn!

THE OTHER CONGRESSMAN ALSO SAID, “I DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION”

—Yeah, they just worry about the next lobbyist contribution, I guess

And you admit that his reasoning is that it’s unconstitutional, but what does that matter, you don’t ask whether it is or not, you just want to know how it will play out in Florida!? I live in Florida, and tell you, the more I talk to people about Ron Paul, the more I see that just getting to know what he stands for attracts people like a magnet!

And don’t you remember? The old folks got MAD at the AARP representatives who came to town halls pushing Obama’s health scare opiate!  They’re not fooled! I’m not fooled and I’m about to retire! Ron Paul says those who’ve paid in all their lives should get what they’ve expected, that the transition back to constitutionality should be tempered with reality and compassion.

GOVERNMENT FREEBIE PROGRAMS CRASH AND BURN: “WHAT, ME WORRY?”

What are old folks supposed to do when the dollar bubble bursts, as is inevitable? That’s the next bubble prediction from Ron Paul, who accurately predicted the end-to-end wars, the housing bubble, the financial crisis, that QE2 and printing money would not work.

PROHIBITION: HOW DID THAT WORK OUT FOR YA? HOW IS IT WORKING OUT FOR YA NOW?

Yeah, I once was a little nervous about “legalization of heroin” but guess what? Alcohol is addictive, still causes major pain and loss of life across the nation, and Prohibition DID. NOT. WORK.

And hey, didn’t you get the memo? Drug laws ARE. NOT. WORKING. NOW. EITHER.

And like Ron Paul says, at least with Prohibition the nation realized they had to have a constitutional amendment for it. Drug prohibition gets us crazy results like saying officially that marijuana is as dangerous as heroin (same FDA classification). Oh yeah, we don’t like heroin so we need the government to tell us we can’t have any.

I’m from the 1960’s so I can tell you it doesn’t work.

RACE CARD ON RON PAUL?? BRING IT ON!!!!

Where were these guys when Herman Cain was being lynched by a white mob? Using the black-on-white stereotypes that even Obama claimed affected his white grandmother?

Where are all these loudmouths on making the drug laws more fair for blacks and minorities? Where are they on the racism of the different treatment under the law of crack and cocaine? Hey Hollywood stars, “liberals”: how about demanding equal punishment for your cocaine sniffing as blacks get for crack?

The libertarian philosophy considers each person an individual, not as a “group member”. We are all members of the human race, and that’s that. There is only ONE “race”, and that is the HUMAN race.

CIVIL RIGHTS ACT? RON PAUL IS AGAINST ALL JIM CROW LAWS THAT SEPARATE US.

And the old “desegregating” Civil Rights Act. Hey Clueless, if a black church wants to exclude whites (yes, there are lots of blacks who do talk that way, ask  Tony Evans), or if the Black Muslims want to exclude whites, I say okay, go for it. If Malcolm X wants to say whites can give money but won’t have a say in his organization, that’s also fine with me.

Martin Luther King’s battle was against Jim Crow laws and illegal secret wars against legalized Jim Crow segregation and he stood for equal treatment under the law. NONE of the candidates represent this as much as Ron Paul. Big Bad Brother government oppressed blacks under Jim Crow, and now the government hug of Nanny care is hugging them literally to the death of dependence.

THE ONLY CANDIDATE THAT UNQUESTIONABLY CAN BEAT BARACK OBAMA

Remember only four years ago they were calling Ron Paul “unelectable”, never mind he’d been reelected to Congress in his district a dozen times? They never imagined that he could win even the Republican nomination, because, they said, his ideas were so different from what we were supposed to think was Republican Party thinking.

But zealous writers in Big Government Media don’t always bide by the obvious truth, so in the face of the obvious fact that Ron Paul is winning over voters by the tens of thousands in Iowa and by the hundreds of thousands and even millions across America, they still keep repeating what they hope will be a self-fulfilling prophecy. It worked for them before sometimes, but it has quit working.

SMALL GOVERNMENT PURITY

At least the writer gives him that: small government purity that has “inspired a growing fan base”. Then he mentions the four years of preparation by his followers in Iowa for this, but forgot that Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, and the rest have been in and out too.

They’re starting to pull out the heavy scare munitions too now. Telling Iowa that if Ron Paul wins, it’s all over for their credibility. The guy hopes that you forget that in his first paragraph he already said that the Iowa caucus process is “inane”. Although it’s obvious the only reason he really and truly thinks it’s inane is that voters are warming up to Ron Paul and he might actually get the Number One spot there.

The guy is full of unintended complements about Ron Paul:

Who else in that motley crew has accrued an army of enthusiasts?

But then the writer shows that he does not understand Ron Paul’s message at all, and he does not understand why people like him and his honest constitutional consistency and his ideas:

But those enthusiasts won’t like what I now feel compelled to say: Paul will peak in Iowa. Anybody who thinks the traditionally hawkish GOP will actually nominate someone who wants to get tougher with Israel and go easier on Iran, is smoking or shooting the stuff that Paul wants to legalize.

See, they just don’t get it. He doesn’t understand. “Traditionally hawkish GOP” does not define the rank-and-file. George W Bush had to campaign against nation-building in the 2000 season, but became the hawkish president.

He also lives in the land where people can believe in two contradictory things at the same time. If you ask him about Obama’s policies in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Libya, and whether one should consider Obama as “hawkish”, he’ll say no. Cue the cuckoo clock.

And he doesn’t understand something else that is different about the Ron Paul phenomenon. Ron Paul says nothing just to tickle somebody’s ear. This very point is an admission by Ron Paul’s enemies that he does not pander, and that the people he is winning to his cause are convinced by the logic of the ideas, and not the other way around.

It is like Ron Paul has said, his campaign and message has infiltrated the language of the other candidates, even, like the demand to audit the Fed, and rhetoric about the Constitution. Raise your hand if you think Newt Gingrich will push hard to audit the Fed. Really? Both of you?

Meaning, rather than peak in Iowa, Big Media will be forced by a Ron Paul win, to do one of two things: (1) treat him with the same respect that their audience and voters show him and let his message filter to the voters and do what they should have been doing –the watchdog role they claim but have not fulfilled, OR (2) prove that they care nothing for the truth, they care nothing for being fair, and are tools of the government-media complex.

MUSCULAR PRESENCE ABROAD

Hey Dick! Maybe the Republican Party bosses have believed in a “muscular presence abroad” but they are NOT rank-and-file and certainly not the average American. When people hear that the USA has troops stationed in over 100 countries around the world, they are shocked! And when they hear Mr. Paul say we should bring them home and spend that money here in the USA instead of abroad, they cheer and cheer!

And when they realize that almost eight years in Iraq and Afghanistan have gotten us nowhere, and Iraq has kicked us out in favor of snuggling up to Iran, and when they are reminded that the United States gives TWICE as much aid to Israel’s enemies as it does to Israel, they’re shocked! Repelled!

One criticism is on the button when the writer says the Republican Party thinks “America can do no wrong”, but that’s the other candidates, but people listening to Mr. Paul are waking up to the fact that it is true that American foreign policy of interventionism everywhere is bad foreign policy and has a blowback element. Intelligence officials of the previous Republican administration and this one have said Ron Paul’s description of blowback as a major catalyst for animosity against America, is very much accurate.

And then the guy closes with the race card again. Not news, but they’ll keep bringing up that one.

Before getting in a twist about that, go ask almost any black what they think about Ron Paul’s position of condemning the racism of the drug wars. And what they think about his intention to pardon every non-violent drug offender from the first day in office. There is a reason the media is refusing to mention that one. If they wanted to scare off Republican voters, they would play that one up, except that if they did, then black folks would start paying attention.

And since Ron Paul is the MOST anti-racist candidate, I say Bring it on!

Ron Paul: “Golden Rule Government”

December 28, 2011

Glad to see a fellow believer supporting Ron Paul. In my opinion his political philosophy is the rational application of Christ‘s love and commandments than any other.

https://postamericana.wordpress.com/2011/12/27/getting-to-know-ron-paul-11-homeschooling/#comment-821

I call it “Golden Rule Economics”: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. If you would have your neighbor leave you to decide what you should think, do, say, and how to spend your own money, then do the same to the neighbor. You have no right to do any more than this to your neighbor, and it is no more right for good intentions or even if you are the majority!
