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 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…
