Ron Paul Purer Republican than Abraham Lincoln?



Paul, who ran for president as a libertarian in 1988, was asked whether he'd run as a third-party candidate next year if he loses the GOP nomination.

Paul said that was unlikely. "I have no intention, no plans of doing it, and that's about 99.9 percent," said Paul, a 72-year-old obstetrician-gynecologist and former Air Force flight surgeon.

Tim Russert of course assumes that Ron Paul cannot secure the GOP nomination. If that turns out to be the case, it would be totally idiotic for Ron Paul to run on a third party ticket. Look at the facts:

Ron Paul running on a third party ticket would guarantee the general election victory of the Democratic nominee. Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John Edwards are all hopelessly addicted socialists who will join with a Democratic Congress to exponentially expand the U.S. government, bring the U.S. economy to its knees, and leave a legacy of poverty and misery for future generations.

Ron Paul turning to a third party would trash the tremendous influence libertarians have been making within the Republican Party. Despite rarely (as of yet) winning within the Republican Party, libertarians are listened to by Republicans. Libertarian ideas are seeping through the Republican Party like an x-ray visible dye in the bloodstream. The Republican Party is the one organization which can stop the onslaught of Democratic socialism. Just as socialists slowly over time rose to dominance in the Democratic Party, so libertarians need to be patient and exert every bit of effort they can within the Republican Party. The Republican Party will someday be an expression of the true Republicanism of Thomas Jefferson ... but not if Ron Paul leaves the Republican Party to the likes of Rockefeller, McCain or Huckabee.

The device which prepares freedom lovers for success, A Course in Miracles , indicates freedom of the body is meaningless without achieving freedom of the mind:

Do you want freedom of the body, or of the mind? For both you cannot have. Which do you value? Which is your goal? For one you see as means; the other, end. And one must serve the other, and lead to its predominance, increasing its importance by diminishing its own. Means serve the end, and as the end is reached, the value of the means decreases, and is eclipsed entirely when they are recognized as functionless. No one but yearns for freedom, and tries to find it. But he will seek for it where he believes it is, and can be found. He will believe it possible of mind or body, and he will make the other serve his choice, as means to find it.

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…
