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."

Ron Paul No Laughing Matter).

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 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…

Lifting Others Up To The Libertarian Way

Probably everyone has experienced moments of the fullness of life: the enthralling love that radiates from our heart when it seems we have met our destined soulmate, the joy that explodes out of our being when at the very last split second our team scores the improbable win of the century, the peace that flows from the depths of our soul when the sunrise suddenly bathes our mountain fishing lake and all seems momentarily "on earth as it is in heaven."

The fullness of life is within us, but doesn't too often emanate from most of us because our minds employ many devices for closing down our being. Yet there is a Way which leads us to constant heart and soul opening and nearly uninterrupted experience of the fullness of life. In common street language this Way is often called "live and let live." Although this encompasses all areas of life, when practiced in the context of people's political interactions it is called The Libertarian Way.

Notice that when we a…

Jesus Christ Does Not Favor Taxation

Heading into midterm election season in America we are faced with an illusory alternative: Caesar in Democratic Party clothing, or in some districts Little Caesar in Republican Party clothing. Apparently what makes the illusion saleable is the mistaken idea (used by Caesar as propaganda) that Jesus Christ was a socialist who supported taxation.

Fascists, communists, and progressives (all three branches of socialism), even after all the misery they have created the world over in the last 100 to 150 years, even now still aim a loud speaker toward us blaring the long broken record of their propaganda mantra: “Jesus was a socialist,” by which they try to convince us that Jesus advocated using government force or threat of force to redistribute wealth.

We’ve addressed the "socialist" issue in the past (See Jesus Christ's Love vs. Obama Style Socialism)

Nonetheless, the illusion could not be sold to the public if it were not for modern conservatives insisting that Jesus supported…
