Gas Prices Will Skyrocket Under Obama's Socialism



"High gas prices? It's the money supply, stupid!"

Well, Ron Paul did not and would not call anyone "stupid," like Bill Clinton and elitist Democrats are prone to do. But on the Glenn Beck Show the libertarian congressman showed he understands economics and he knows what to do about the high price of gasoline.

Let's put it into street language. If you sell your bushel of apples in a neighborhood where all the residents combined only have $100, you'll never get much more than $1 each for your apples. But if you sell your apples in a populous neighborhood where each resident has millions of dollars, it's hard to guess how much people will bid for your apples. You might sell some at $100 each, or more.

Ron Paul made it clear on the Glenn Beck Show that gasoline prices are high not only due to the demand for oil and refining capacity outweighing supply. He reminded us a perhaps more important factor is the ever increasing money supply, which also means the ever decreasing value of the dollar.

But that begs the question: why is the money supply out of whack?

One answer is: increased government deficits; or in street language which Bill Clinton could use, stupid politicians.

But then Bill Clinton would only utter such words behind closed doors, wouldn't you say? Because it's his Democratic Party (including Obama) which is religiously dedicated to ever increasing government spending. Democrats utterly worship government with a blind faith that makes Christians look like champions of reason.

High gasoline prices are only a small symptom. America's economy will over-inflate and burst into thin air unless common sense is introduced into the minds of politicians. And the introduction of reason into politics is what Ron Paul is all about.

Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty states among it's principles: For all their talk of “change,” neither major political party as presently constituted challenges the status quo in any serious way. Neither treats the Constitution with anything but contempt. Neither offers any kind of change in monetary policy. Neither wants to make the reductions in government that our crushing debt burden demands.

Maybe you were turned off by Ron Paul's shrill voice arguing against the Iraq war, as if he was strangely blind to Saddam Hussein's aggression and desire to make himself an Islamic reincarnation of Adolph Hitler. Nonetheless, remember it was Democrat bureaucrats who arrived in Baghdad and prevented the U.S. from getting out of Iraq quickly after the armed forces had neutralized the murderous dictator.

In the context of the Democratic Party's sabotage of success in Iraq so their party could ascend to power, maybe Ron Paul's noninterventionalism would somehow have served America better after all.

But far worse than a heroically conceived Iraq rescue effort morphed into a misadventure is the Democratic Party's worship of government, which has now spread like a contagious disease to so many Republicans. And Ron Paul's battle cry is far more heroic than: "Get the United States out of Iraq!" His call to arms almost echoes Thomas Jefferson's cry from the grave: "Get the United States Government out of the United States!" Wouldn't it be amazing if Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty turned out to be the one last hope for lifting America higher?

Speaking of "lifting higher", for the last election year we studied (1998) some of the highest percentage of votes for Libertarian Party candidates were for candidates who had been studying free of charge the lessons of: Course in Political Miracles

“I did not understand what made me free, nor what my freedom is, nor where to look to find it. Father, I have searched in vain until I heard Your Voice directing me. Now I would guide myself no more. For I have neither made nor understood the way to find my freedom. But I trust in You. You Who endowed me with my freedom as Your holy Son will not be lost to me. Your Voice directs me."

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…
