I support Ron Paul... but for the sake of honest critical thought... there is merit to SOME of BlupBlup's counter.
I'm not as cynical as he... and I admit I'm a vociferous supporter of Ron Paul. No... RP is not perfect. No human being, let alone candidate,
The difference is Ron Paul has no "personality" to sell. He's just trying to tell the truth as he sees it. He's an M.D., and he can also do
simple math and analysis. He himself IS capable of critical thought. Most of the professional political class (PPC) is just selling a product, that
they know is no good. They don't NEED substance... the marketing campaign of the PPC IS the product... because the results after the fact are
Look at some of the primary messages of the Bush campaign. No "nation building" and a "more humble foreign policy". This, when the plans for an
Iraq Invasion and the language of The Patriot Act was already on the drawing board. I voted for Bush. I told a conservative friend after the
election, "Dude... look at the team he's putting together... it would make you wonder if they were planning to go to war."
Look at the campaign promises of Obama. Out of the majority of the things he promised during the campaign, he's done the opposite.
Ron Paul, in a very real way... has already won the election. He has made a HUGE impact on the conversation in the United States. No matter what
happens to him now... his message has ALREADY created a substantial impact on the cultural "meme".
Also... do NOT underestimate the threat he is perceived as being, to the Military/Intelligence/Banking/ETC Industrial Complex. To the Oligarchy, he
is the most dangerous person on earth, at present.
Also remember... the Oligarchy WANTS a violent uprising against "the system". They know how to deal with violence... they have an answer to that.
What they DON'T know how to handle is non-violent committed civil disobedience... and the more committed to the non-violence that civil disobedience
is, the more destructive the protest is to the status-quo machine.
Remember that handful of women in NYC during "Occupy", that had been corralled with a police moveable fence, and were then, just out of malice,
sprayed with ace by an NYPD supervisor?
That was it. BOOM!!! It hit front and center on the planetary media within 48 hours.
Despite the successes or failures or politics of the Occupy Movement... all freedom loving folks woud do well to learn what worked.
Ron Paul is out in front of the whole world, being very vocal about the symptoms of empire, the well developed cracks in that empire, and the history
of EVERY SINGLE NATION, and what has happened after those symptoms appeared. Even his own solutions, will cause a major "healing crisis" in the
But to do nothing... or continue on with Empire, has a very clear outcome. Collapse.
Ron Paul's message is doing the one thing that the Power Elite fear more than anything in the public message space... he is causing people who come
from across the entire Left/Right political spectrum to join together. In a propaganda driven media... that is their nightmare come true, when the
"sheep wake up", and become Lions.
Rise like Lions after slumber
In un-vanquishable number,
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you-
Ye are many — they are few
