If a group of "wise" and "noble" individuals were in control we wouldn't be where we are at today.

From what we can see from events such as the recent Iowa Caucus, it is pretty clear to me that "the people" can not be trusted to make the right decision. While some people do the research on who the right candidate actually is (and we all know there is only one), other people just cannot be bothered to do their research and would rather vote like their neighbour or best friend, which in turn vote for the one with the nicest looking face. And the reason for this is obvious; people that need to work for a living, simply does not have the time to properly educate themselves in these matters.
I suspect someone, somewhere a long time ago already understood this, and came to the same conclusion i did.
While Democracy may sound good on paper, it cannot be trusted to work for the best interest of a nation in the long run.
That is why there are people above the president, people like the Illuminati, and why there are 39 security classifications which are above the presidential level.
Most people of course have no clue about this, and they should not have it, lest they might riot and the national security be compromised.
So, even if i support Ron Paul, and even though i think he is sincere.. i suspect Obama actually might have been as well, before he became President.
I am pretty sure once the President is elected, he is quickly informed about these matters, and that he must assume the role of this puppet, or be killed like Kennedy, or worse have his entire family threatened.
So do not be surprised, even if Ron Paul wins... that he will either succumb to these demands, or be assasinated.
That is all.
