As Barack Obama is Exposed, His Fans Look to Ron Paul



Almost everyone wants change from "politics as usual" in Washington (and pretty much everywhere). Many young people at first turned to Barack Obama. But as they find out that Obama belongs to a cult which is attempting to highjack and redefine Christianity in terms of Marxist socialism, they become disillusioned with the "sexy boy." It turns out Barack Obama not only offers more of the same. He offers much, much, much more of the same.

So it becomes necessary for initial Obama admirers to look around once again and find Ron Paul, who offers orders of magnitude less of the same. Unlike Obama, Ron Paul sees clearly that politicians are the problem, government incroaching on every conceivable area of life is the problem. Paul sees clearly that a huge amount of the misery of the last century has been government-induced misery, in the name of "doing good."

Only two candidates for the Presidency have said they would veto at least half the bills government-addicted legislators send to the President: Ron Paul and Mitt Romney.

Romney is well on the way to discovering his innate libertarianism, but Ron Paul discovered his genetic need for individual freedom many years ago. Whereas Romney is inching closer and closer to understanding that what is good for the individual is good for society because society is not more than individuals, Ron Paul totally grasps that sacrificing any individual for the "good of society" is a contradiction, and in the context of politics an evil concept.

Obama supporters need to find Ron Paul.

But then if Ron Paul bolts the Republican Party, they need to pay attention to Mitt Romney.

The libertarian preparation device, A Course in Miracles, speaks of the self-destructive concept of sacrifice:

What is the real meaning of sacrifice? It is the cost of believing in illusions. It is the price that must be paid for the denial of truth. There is no pleasure of the world that does not demand this, for otherwise the pleasure would be seen as pain, and no one asks for pain if he recognizes it. It is the idea of sacrifice that makes him blind. He does not see what he is asking for. And so he seeks it in a thousand ways and in a thousand places, each time believing it is there, and each time disappointed in the end. "Seek but do not find" remains this world's stern decree, and no one who pursues the world's goals can do otherwise.

The Winning Tao Of Liberty

One who follows the Liberty Way with people, 
does not use weapons to enforce his will. 
Initiating force always leads to pain and suffering. 

With the Liberty Way where armies once gathered,
briars and brambles now blossom. 

A liberty leader exercises his leadership, 
and that is all. 
If he uses force, it is not to seize for himself. 

He skillfully overcomes liberty's enemies, 
but is not proud. 
His progress might be admired, 
yet he is not boastful. 
His work may even win accolades, 
still he does not brag. He fulfills his purpose for liberty, 
because he knows he has no other choice. 

The Liberty Way is fulfilling one's purpose without using force. 
The above is a liberty interpretation of a passage from the ancient spiritual classic Tao Te Ching.  As in all spiritual works which have been venerated worldwide down through the centuries a difference is recognized between (1) the use of force by ego determination for ego purposes, and (2) the use of force in defense of the freedom to act …

How Liberty Lovers Can Assure Winning

The freedom-loving Libertarian Party has been active 46 years, yet manages to gather only a minuscule percentage of the vote. Many would say this is pathetic.

The Republican Freedom Caucus in the House of Representatives heroically saves America from a disastrous re-application of the ObamaCare premise that dictatorship of people's health insurance is government's business ... a rescue effort for which they should be presenting themselves as national champions. Instead they allow themselves to be portrayed as villains. Maybe not pathetic, but a mixed bag.

It's not that freedom is no longer considered a value among Americans. It's that modern freedom lovers haven't yet learned how to win fully, completely, without limitation. Liberty lovers achieve only partial victories because we do not have a winning mindset.

To achieve complete and lasting victory liberty lovers need to transform their minds and think like winners.

To do this we must first train ourselves to …

The Libertarian Way: So Much More Than The NAP!

How often do we hear the word "libertarian" being used in contexts relating to politics or some kind of political understanding? Even most dictionary definitions of "libertarian" emphasize political implications.

Yet libertarians will never experience the full personal benefit of their libertarian impulse, and never be completely successful in any political activism they undertake, unless they understand the Libertarian Way is much deeper and more basic than concern with political conditions.

Before there is politics ... before there are relationships ... there is life. When human beings feel their deepest-rooted inner desires (as opposed to addiction to intellectualism for the purpose of avoiding the depths of their being), they sense inside themselves a yearning for the fullness of life to shine forth and be experienced.

"Fullness" is the key. Liberal-progressive dictators will tell you their programs and agendas help people have a better life, but th…
