Due to the massive amount of emotional propaganda fed to them by the media for their entire lives,many people are still actively deluding themselves with regards to the Ron Paul “Loverution”. I wanted to lay out a few points with regards to why this is absolute nonsense, and if anyone actually cares about doing something to change the current state of affairs on this planet, they will cease and desist rambling on about this nonsense immediately.
-Politics are not real, they never have been, they are simply a way of pacifying the public. There is no evidence that anything else has ever been true.
-The system benefits by deferring all discontent among the public back into approved nonsense, such as politics, where people will waste time in a fantasy world created by the television rather than engage reality. A complex delusion is manufactured, in which media spectacle is designed to project a desired illusion, in this case that being that Ron Paul is a real hero who can save America if the media itself stops ignoring him. When all input is regulated, all output fits the desired format, and people are left actually believing that the media is involved in a conspiracy to “hide Ron Paul”, when in fact they are engaged in a conspiracy to make it look like they are doing that, as a way to trick people incapable of thinking two step ahead into thinking that the whole spectacle represents some form of reality. They are always a step ahead of you. That is what propaganda is.
-Even in an alternate reality where politics were real, the sophistication of propaganda (not to mention vote rigging) makes free choice impossible.
-None of Ron Paul’s “solutions” actually make any logical sense when looked at for more than seven or eight seconds. For example, replacing the Federal Reserve note with Rothschild controlled gold is a complete joke on every conceivable level. The rest of his core policies are equally and obviously stupid, much of it surrounding the employment of an ancient political and economic model designed for localized agrarian economies to the post-industrial globalized world. If we examine where his policies would actually lead, the best we could hope for is to be invaded and conquered by China, or for society to collapse completely and everyone die.

I hear you, and i know what you are saying.
Just a question, which candidate would you support if not Ron Paul?
To me, Jacque fresco would be the optimal president, if we really wanted a MAJOR change for the better, but since he is not running, Ron Paul is the second best thing. Compared to the other candidates, Ron Paul has way more sensible and non-violent solutions to many of todays problems. Also he is the only honest man in the field.
I wouldn't support anyone. I have never voted and never will.
