Ron Paul Hurting Cause Voicing Leftist Nonsense?



"We said that peace must first surmount the obstacle of your desire to get rid of it. Where the attraction of guilt holds sway, peace is not wanted. The second obstacle that peace must flow across, and closely related to the first, is the belief that the body is valuable for what it offers."
-A Course in Miracles


The "mainstream" media (read "liberal-left" media) has adored Ron Paul's talk of leaving oppressed people (oppressed by socialist governments) to fend for themselves, not volunteering to intervene to help them. To be sure, Americans have been brainwashed by the left-wing media day in and day out, night in and night out, for years now. Probably some Ron Paul supporters have grown up never hearing any other side of the story.

But a close observation of the majority of Ron Paul supporters shows they are not all anti-intervention mudddleheads. For most Ron Paul supporters, for example, the Iraq war is not the main issue. Their "first things first" issue is the U.S. Government's steady metamorphosis over the last century or so into a corrupt dictatorial state which claims men and women's bodies are more important than their spirit ... and in so doing robs people of the true meaning of life.

Many Ron Paul supporters would join with Patrick Henry in declaring that without political liberty, life on earth isn't worth anything. It is the same stand eventually taken by all men and women anywhere who have lived under communism or socialism: "going through the motions" under the watchful eye of the state is not life.

Whereas most anti-war crazies are insane puppets of the worldwide leftist agenda, Ron Paul supporters are actually deeply opposed to the leftist addiction to controlling people politically. Ron Paul supporters are "Republicans" in the Thomas Jefferson sense of the concept. They want to return America to the freedom promised by the spirit of '76 and the Declaration of Independence. They recall ancient memories of freedom and sense the promise of the only life worth living.

The device which prepares freedom lovers for success, A Course in Miracles , indicates freedom of the spirit is worth everything, while defending the body is insanity:

You operate from the belief you must protect yourself from what is happening, because it must contain what threatens you. A sense of threat is an acknowledgment of an inherent weakness; a belief that there is danger which has power to call on you to make appropriate defense.

The world is based on this insane belief. And all its structures, all its thoughts and doubts, its penalties and heavy armaments, its legal definitions and its codes, its ethics and its leaders and its gods, all serve but to preserve its sense of threat. For no one walks the world in armature but must have terror striking at his 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…
