Ron Paul is a stealth agent, and I know it's hard to hear. It's not his fault, and he's not taking orders. He is just a useful idiot. I want to fall in line and say that agreeing with his policies is enough, it is not. We are an intellectual people, and we must look farther. In order to carry out his agenda, he will need nothing short of pseudo-dictatorial powers. This is where your opinion may differ, and I understand. He is either a useful idiot who will lay the groundwork for the demons to create, or become, a dictator. Whether he really succeeds in becoming president, or dictator is irrelevant because the real goal is revolution itself as a destabilizing force which would create a vacuum and weakness our enemies will take advantage of.
I had this same thought as well. To practically apply what Ron paul wants to do he must be able to Bypass congress moreso than Obama does now, or have the entire congress on his side.
Also I really believe that Ron Paul wants to do the right thing. If we see him becoming a leader for the republican party as unlikely as it may be, we must remain vigilant. Who knows, Paul just might be smart enough to know his position as a useless idiot and is smart enough to anticipate that and use it to a positive outcome.

While the popular uprisings of the Arab Spring created new opportunities for American diplomacy, the tumult has also presented the United States with challenges — and worst-case scenarios — that would have once been almost unimaginable.
What if the Palestinians’ quest for recognition of a state at the United Nations, despite American pleas otherwise, lands Israel in the International Criminal Court, fuels deeper resentment of the United States, or touches off a new convulsion of violence in the West Bank and Gaza?
Or if Egypt, emerging from decades of autocratic rule under President Hosni Mubarak, responds to anti-Israeli sentiments on the street and abrogates the Camp David peace treaty, a bulwark of Arab-Israeli stability for three decades?
The bold vow on Friday by the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, to seek full membership at the United Nations amounted to a public rebuff of weeks of feverish American diplomacy.His vow came on top of a rapid and worrisome deterioration of relations between Egypt and Israel and between Israel and Turkey, the three countries that have been the strongest American allies in the region.
The upheaval in Egypt has even raised the prospect that it might break its Camp David peace treaty with Israel, with Egypt’s prime minister, Essam Sharaf, telling a Turkish television channel last week that the deal was “not a sacred thing and is always open to discussion”

YOU know what is going on and YOU know very well that you cant change it in a way you desire. So, why do you still bother to enlighten "some" people, where you can see that there is no hope for them? I really try to understand this phenomena - why do you need to warn those, who actually doesnt give sh*t? Even if they do, what is going to change? A new president? A new economic law or system? A new social structure? Society is build upon authority and it cannot exist without it. In that system wars, collapses and destabilization is highly needed in order to prevent the "colonial collapse", sounds crazy but it is so! If they really wanted to kill us, dont you think they would do it right away! They dont do it, because that is not the point. People search the answer for a "WHY they do it", but they never question the "HOW they do it"!
