Ron Paul Cannot Be Laughed Away!

"Ron Paul is no laughing matter. He's tapping into a side of the Republican Party that's never had its issues addressed," said David All, a GOP strategist and Internet expert. "And he's doing it by running a truly Web 2.0 campaign."

Finally Republicans are beginning to awaken to truth. Mitt Romney identified a very important principle when he pointed out that in a contest between Democrats and Republicans who act like Democrats, the most consistent party wins. Democrats who worship government and want government to control just about every aspect of our lives cannot be defeated by a party that acquiesces in government interference with our free choices.

Democrats who worship government-provided "safety nets" (as if anything government provides could ever be "safe"-- see Liberty vs. Security: False Dichotomy) cannot be defeated by a party who agrees with the morality of government stealing from (taxing) hard workers in order to mess around in the "safety net" business.

Ron Paul is no laughing matter because he is challenging Republicans to get in touch with honesty and power inside themselves and act with courage. Paul is showing Republicans that political success does not come from campaigning on seemingly "safe" political positions (positions defined by government worshippers), but from campaigning on the deep truths and courage that really inspire people.

Ron Paul triggers memories of John Paul Jones. "I have not yet begun to fight." He awakens memories of Paul Revere. He helps us remember any hero from any time and place who catered not to people's fears, but awakened their courage. Democrats prey on people's ego fears and feelings of inadequacy with mantras like: "Millions don't have health coverage." Republicans don't even deserve to win if they attempt to out-terrify and out-belittle people. Republicans need to address not people's fears and inadequacies, but something much deeper which provides a feeling of total capability and fearlessness ... their spirit.

Ron Paul knows our spirit is free (see The Spiritual Basis of Liberty) and somewhere deep inside people want individual liberty, not government worshippers dreaming up a million ways to tax and spend, regulate and control ... and not Republicans acting like Democrats.

The device which prepares libertarians for success, A Course in Miracles, has this to say about those who worship government "defenses" or "safety nets:"

Defenses are the costliest of all the prices which the ego would exact. In them lies madness in a form so grim that hope of sanity seems but to be an idle dream, beyond the possible. The sense of threat the world encourages is so much deeper and so far beyond the frenzy and intensity of which you can conceive that you have no idea of all the devastation it has wrought. You are its slave. You know not what you do in fear of it. You do not understand how much you have been made to sacrifice who feel its iron grip upon your heart.

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…
