Ron Paul Opposes Abortion Wrongs!



Liberal headline writers: "Ron Paul critical of Iraq war, abortion rights." "Does Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul's strong language about abolishing a woman's right to choose...." "Ron Paul opposes abortion rights."

Ron Paul says:"No!" He does not oppose abortion "rights." He opposes abortion wrongs. It is about right and wrong.

Libertarians have often been heard starting off their arguments with phrases like: "If you feel like doing it, and it doesn't seem to hurt anyone...." This is known as aborting morality before it can be born. Just because an activity doesn't seem to hurt anyone (judging by surface appearances) doesn't make it right. Voters know this, which explains why few libertarians have ever been able to win large numbers of votes.

Is it right to participate in sexual activity knowing full well you have no intention of taking responsibility for the result?

Is it right for a woman to begin nourishing and growing a baby inside herself and then let herself be guided by fear and brainwashed by abortion peddlers into killing the baby?

Living in a world that is desperate for innocence and love, is it right to sabotage bringing into this world a totally innocent, totally loving new being?

Ron Paul simply teaches as any advanced spiritual teacher would teach: government has no business perpetuating wrongs.

Ron Paul knows that a free country cannot be justified by economists and philosophers alone. He knows freedom is a quality of our spirit (see The Spiritual Basis of Liberty) and our spirit knows better than any philosopher or economist what is in the best interest of everyone.

A country cannot maintain its freedom if its citizens give up listening inside to their spirit. Government schools and powerfully noisy special interest groups who purposely redefine "rights" to encompass wrongs make it difficult to quiet one's fears, quiet one's ego-vested interests, and listen inside to one's spirit. But it can be done with a little willingness.

Contrary to Ann Coulter's joke "if Democrats had any brains," liberal headline writers have plenty of brains. They simply misuse their brains to create enough static to drown out the voice of their spirit.

But voters are far more open-minded than headline writers. As Ron Paul continues to speak to the certain knowledge inside of people of what is right and wrong, he will continue to gain new support ... and a responsible libertarian wing will continue to reform the Republican Party.

And who knows ... maybe someday even liberal headline writers will learn the difference between rights and wrongs.

The device which prepares libertarians for success, A Course in Miracles, has this to say about listening inside to what is really wrong and right.

It is quite possible to listen to God’s Voice all day without interrupting your regular activities in any way. The part of your mind in which truth abides is in constant communication with God, whether you are aware of it or not. It is the other part of your mind that functions in the world and obeys the world’s laws. It is this part which is constantly distracted, disorganized, and highly uncertain.

The part that is listening to the Voice of God is calm, always at rest and wholly certain. It is really the only part there is. The other part is a wild illusion, frantic and distraught, but without reality of any kind. Try today not to listen to it. Try to identify with the part of your mind where stillness and peace reign forever. Try to hear God’s Voice call to you lovingly.

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…
