McCain Always Gets Shot Down; Republican Party Will Have Ron Paul & Romney

"Your past learning must have taught you the wrong things, simply because it has not made you happy. On this basis alone, its value should be questioned. If learning aims at change, and that is always its purpose, are you satisfied with the changes yours has brought you? Dissatisfaction with the learning outcome must be a sign of learning failure, because it means that you did not get what you want."
-A Course in Miracles

The 2008 election cycle is fascinating to watch because everyone agrees it is about change, but with the possible exception of Ron Paul and Mitt Romney nobody seems to understand that change depends on learning something very different from what has been learned in the past.

Hillary Clinton's idea of change is to take over power from George Bush and institute a continuation of the former Clinton administration of the 1990s, only this time with Democrats in control of Congress so programs can be passed which work toward perpetuating Democratic Party rulership of America ... politics as usual, with nothing learned except how to stay in power another day while the world slowly falls apart.

Barack Obama's concept of change is more idealistic. But his ideal is the kind of socialism that works only in the fool's paradise of a dreamer's mind. If you want to find out why Obama's socialism is not only an unworkable fantasy, but actually an evil concept, read the account of the Twentieth Century Motor Works in Ayn Rand's novel Atlas Shrugged. Barack Obama has learned nothing from the rotten stench of misery arising from the junk heap of failed socialist and communist experiments.

Ron Paul has learned from history. He can see clearly that it is the spirit of men and women that produces happiness and prosperity, and it was the spirit of men and women that was unleashed by the American Declaration of Independence and the American Revolution, allowing a people to discover their inner greatness and build the greatest country that ever existed. Ron Paul is still angry about what has happened to America and about how the Constitution has been treated, which means he still has much to learn about the self-sabotaging effect of anger and the tremendous winning power of inner peace. But he is on the right track, working for the continued American Revolution.

Mitt Romney experiences inner peace. But his learning is not complete either. He can see that a country has to be built on a spiritual foundation to be successful, but he is learning the hard way the difference between spirituality and religion, and that religions can breed prejudice. Romney hasn't yet learned to address a spirituality that transcends religions, although he senses its presence in free men and women trading freely with each other in a free market. It is not bad news that Romney is so innocent and without guile. It is not even bad news that he has been perceived by little minds as a flip-flopper. The good news is Romney is naturally open-minded, almost compulsively open-minded, and therefore extremely open to learning. (To see a video comparison of Ronald Reagan's speeches and Romney's speech: Ronald Reagan/Mitt Romney speeches )

Learning means the breaking up and falling apart of establishment thought patterns, establishment "wisdom," the establishment in general. Not much learning is happening in the Democratic Party, which has been the establishment for many, many years. But the Republican Party is showing great willingness to learn. McCain might be the last of the establishment, but after the McCain disaster keep an eye on the Republican Party. See related article: Republican Liberty Revolution

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…
