I suppose the RP hatred is a necessary reaction to the overt RP love that pops up in these threads.
I wish I could have seen the video which seems to have been intended to show how RP is on the side of evil... sadly the link wont work for me.
But I have to say, I NEVER bother wasting time engendering emotional attachments or support for celebrity politicians... even the one's whose
message strikes me as sincere.
Truth is, these are humans. They are ambitious and focused of the career of politicking... which in and of itself means they are negotiators of
compromise which serves their ideological agenda. Like most people I can see the ignorance of thinking that you must accept ALL of a political
parties agenda ... or ALL of a politician's agenda...
But I was fortunate to have been born with a genetic predisposition to refuse the notion that 'group-think' is good, and vociferous antagonism for
opponents' character is somehow constructive.
Dr. Paul is a Republican (for now) and that bothers me. The Republican party HE describes as appropriate is NOT the Republican party to which he
subscribes. THAT bothers me.
The fact that he can rationalize a 'politically' acceptable stance against the Fed is troubling; since, in fact, most know that the transnational
banking cartel it represents is PRECISELY the key component of the downfall and backsliding of the American economic engine (or the economy of most
nations, for that matter). But he knows he can't "politically" contend with the issue because of the "party" and it's "integrated" nature
with the corporate construct.
I commend the message, I care not for the messenger who in my opinion can't get the traction he needs to engage the issue because he's choice of
political allegiance hamstrings his viability as an agent of change.
Mind you, it must NEVER be forgotten or misconstrued... there IS NO TWO PARTY SYSTEM. There is NO effective difference between Republican and
Democrat as long as the progenitors of the party system are beholden (and thus subservient) to the same entities.
We need a second party people.... stop allowing them to call potential competitors 'third-party' because it is faulty logic to pretend that the
media duality we are force fed is anything but a Madison Avenue/Hollywood show business construct.
It is similar to the ongoing campaign to recast America as a democracy (which most politicians and pundits reiterate at every opportunity). When
confronted they roll their eyes as if the distinction between a democracy and a representative democratic republic was a foolish one.
It isn't about the political people... they are all humans and as such are subject to the frailties we all share, including hubris, vice, and
ambition. Its about the make-believe political process which has nearly disenfranchised the citizens from the process altogether.
The three branches of government need a spiritual enema, followed by an ethical high-colonic... alas there are few who would endure such a
reformation, and apparently none who are willing to apply it.
