Ron Paul Republicans Still Have Clout



"Remember a very early lesson: 'never underestimate the power of denial.' Denial has no power in itself, but you can give it the power of your mind, whose power is without limit of any kind. If you use your mind to deny reality, reality is gone FOR YOU."
~ Jesus Christ


With the Ron Paul excitement fading as reality sets in, libertarians are once again lapsing into their habitual uncertainty as to where to be and what to do next. The so-called "defeatists" are saying: "the GOP is bogged down in a hopeless quagmire and we should pull out our troops." The eternal optimists are heard saying: "The GOP is about to suffer such a terrible landslide defeat that their only remaining choice will be to start becoming libertarian." Finally, the possibly fact-based realists warn, "if you allow Marxist Barack Obama to win, that's the end of any hope in our lifetime."

Ron Paul himself is a realist.

Ron Paul shows more maturity than most libertarians. He doesn't need others to validate his ego. He can feel total integrity and thorough relevance even while surrounded by other GOP Representatives who far too often compromise with those who would destroy liberty. He needs neither their agreement nor their approval.

Nor is Ron Paul inclined to fantasy. On the one hand, he knows that third party efforts are always self-sabotaging, destined for defeat, but worse ... serving the enemies of liberty. On the other hand, he understands there will never be a GOP defeat momentous enough to change some of his Republican friends. Some Republicans are probably hopeless, while others will suffer defeat and still look in all the wrong places for answers. But Ron Paul knows if he himself stands his ground, he is building something to which others will eventually come.

Ron Paul sees reality clearly. He knows Barack Obama is a champion of Marxist "Liberation Theology," the philosophy which preaches victimhood to gain power, then practices dictatorship (see the likes of Hugo Chavez in Venezuela). He knows that the real battle is between Marxists, whether they call themselves "liberal" or "socialist" on one side of the battle field, and on the other side American Revolution traditionalists or Constitutionalists, whether they call themselves "conservative" or "libertarian."

The American Revolution was all about freeing people from slavery. It didn't happen overnight. It didn't even happen in the 1860s or 1960s. But it IS happening and IS continuing: The Continuing American Revolution.

Ron Paul is pragmatic. He knows "divide and conquer" works. He understands that for as long as various factions refuse to fight together in one coordinated army, but divide their efforts and resources ... the enemy will continue to win. Right now the GOP leadership stinks. But new and better leadership can and will arise ... and Ron Paul knows 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…
