I would not have you believe anything. I just think it pays to consider all possibilities.
I don't know. Something just doesn't add up. As you say, they own the field, the team, the PA system and the game. And what's more, they make all the
rules. It just doesn't make any sense they'd even let RP play unless they wanted him there for some reason. I mean, think of all the brilliant
libertarians who are undoubtedly out there who could play this game better than Ron Paul. I know some people love the guy but face it. He's an old man
and he's just not smart enough to beat these people at their own game. Why is Ron Paul the best we can do for a strong Libertarian candidate?
I'd love to just take everything at face value. Maybe I'm just too paranoid for my own good.
Would you have me believe that the establishment republicans are actually different from the establishment democrats? How absurd!
No. Not at all. I think you've got me wrong here. I think they are exactly the same. But we are in an extreme minority. Most people believe Democrats
and Republicans are different and therefore, whoever is "elected" has to at least pretend they are representing those who elected them. And of course,
if a Republican wins, the entire Democratic base will automatically turn against him/her simply because they're a Republican. It's easier for them to
push the agenda they're pushing posing as Democrats. The liberal base would never harass a Democrat the way they harassed Bush.
I'm saying they all want Obama to win. Ron Paul will draw a certain amount of the conservative vote but he'll never get it all because let's face it,
he comes across a little kooky. I'm thinking he will cause just enough division to allow Obama to win. Rigging elections is dangerous business. It's a
lot easier if they don't have to do anything overt.
What difference do you think it will make if we have Romney, Newt or Obama.
Policy wise? None (Well, very little). But as I said before, the liberal base sleeps as long as there's a Democratic president. If a Republican wins,
they come back to life and start protesting again. It's all about how it looks. They're all the same but a Republican can't get elected by being a gun
grabber and a Democrat can't be anti-abortion, for example. I guess I shouldn't speak in absolutes. I won't say it couldn't be done but it would be an
uphill battle and that's not how they like to operate. Why fight an uphill battle if you don't have to?
With any of these guys the march toward the end of America will continue unabated.
Unfortunately, my friend, I think that's inevitable now. You may be incredulous to it but I think they set that ball rolling before most of us were
born. I do think they planned it to the smallest detail to which it's possible to plan future events. Look at the engine in your car. Look at your
computer motherboard. That's engineering at work. Maybe it's cynical but I don't think all engineers are nice guys.
I'll take my chances with Paul being the real deal instead of worrying (without evidence BTW) that he is part of the establishment.
I have been (reluctantly) forced to the same conclusion but I just can't help but wonder what he's doing there if he isn't. You sound like a smart
guy to me so you should know these people don't let things get out of control in a critical area like this no matter what. I don't know if I think
he's actually part of it. It could be that they're just using him. I really don't know. Something just doesn't smell right.
Or maybe they're just building him up so they can tear him down at the last minute.
We KNOW the other guys are part of the establishment.
Come on people .... Think!
Of course they are.
But I also know these people are diabolically smart and they don't do anything spontaneously.
