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 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…
