Ron Paul or Mitt Romney?



Ron Paul and Mitt Romney during the Ames Straw Poll were both impressive enough to ask two questions: 1) which one of them is capable of being elected over Hillary Clinton; and 2) which one of them is most likely to further the libertarian cause?

Obviously neither one of these questions can be answered intellectually because as pointed out clearly in the article The Spiritual Basis of Liberty our thoughts are based on limited information and limited perception. In order to make a correct judgment as to what is truly good, we would have to be 100% completely aware of an inconceivably wide range of factors; past, present, and future. We would have to have certain advance knowledge of all the effects of our judgment on everyone and everything. We would have to be ABSOLUTELY SURE that we didn't have the slightest slanted angle of perception.

Who could possibly have this magnitude of information? Who except in the height of fantasy could imagine themselves to have such a totally all-seeing and all-knowing viewpoint? How many times have you been so thoroughly sure you knew the facts upon which to base correct judgment, only to find out later how wrong you were?

The good news is libertarians are uniquely in-touch with their spirit, which is free ... and demands freedom. So they need only quiet their intellect and ask their spirit which is the best candidate.

Setting aside all preconceived intellectual conclusions, prejudgements, wishes and hopes; starting with a totally blank mind; libertarians need only ask inside:

Ron Paul has what it takes to go on and win the Presidency over Hillary Clinton ... true or false?

Mitt Romney has what it takes to go on and win the Presidency over Hillary Clinton ... true or false?

Of course if your mind wasn't cleared and open before you asked, then you heard only what you wanted to hear. But one thing for sure: your spirit knows who would be the best President for Americans at this time.

The libertarian preparation device, A Course in Miracles, speaks of releasing preconceived judgments:

Perception follows judgement. Having judged, you therefore see what you would look upon. For sight can merely serve to offer you what you would have. It is impossible to overlook what you would see, and fail to see what you have chosen to behold. How surely, therefore, must the real world come to greet the holy sight of anyone who takes the Holy Spirit’s purpose as his goal for seeing. And he cannot fail to look upon what Christ would have him see, and share Christ’s love for what he looks upon.

Use this affirmation, and see what happens: “I have no purpose for today except to look upon a liberated world, set free from all the judgements I have made. Father, this is Your Will for me today, and therefore it must be my goal as well.”

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…
