"The Holy Spirit has the task of UNDOING what the ego has made. It must undo it in the same realm of discourse in which the ego itself operates, or the mind would be unable to understand the change."
-A Course in Miracles
Ron Paul may have substantial support in the ultimate Louisiana GOP delegation. Uncommitted delegates who lead the slate are committed to not supporting McCain. Ron Paul was next in line.
Despite the establishment media's mantra that Republicans will very soon be down to a three man race: McCain, Romney and Giuliani ... Ron Paul even before Louisiana had 4 times as many delegates as Giuliani. (Actually, Real Clear Politics has reported that Giuliani has only one delegate so far, while Ron Paul has 4. Of course the accuracy of this count is not real clear, since The Green Papers shows Ron Paul with 8 delegates and Giuliani with zero.)
However many delegates he has, Ron Paul is happy because his message is being heard and money keeps rolling in so he can continue promoting individual freedom and common sense.
What kind of message is that? True Republicanism. Almost as true as Thomas Jefferson Republicanism. It is a message that the media establishment, the education establishment, the Humpty-Dumpty political establishment ... does not want Americans to hear. They try to ignore Ron Paul or push him out of the national debate. When they do mention him they make him sound like any old country club conservative who only wants a little bit smaller government and somewhat lower taxes.
Excuse me? Ron Paul was the first to shout Mitt Romney's campaign theme: Washington is broken! But Ron Paul has known Washington to be broken for a long, long time and in need of fundamental gut-level undoing.
There is no doubt Gov. Romney is passionately determined to fix Washington and has the leadership skills to do the job. But here's the irony: Romney would gather all his facts, as he does, and inevitably come to the conclusion that in order to transform Washington he would have to pretty much undo all the establishment structures Ron Paul would have undone years ago if given the chance.
So now not only is Ron Paul's message being heard (and will more and more be heard farther and wider than ever before) ... but another Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, is voicing the kind of passionate intent that will lead him eventually to hear and adopt Ron Paul's wisdom. So Ron Paul only has 4 delegates (or maybe 8), but this primary election cycle has so far been very good for the Republican Party's transformation, which means for the future of America.

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.
