Rand Paul Is Doing It Right


The fact that libertarians have consistently sabotaged their own cause in numerous ways over the years is surely a contributing factor in the takeover of America by the wrong-minded liberal-progressive dictatorship. Yet despite such continuous self-sabotage, libertarians stay alive in politics because they have working for them the spiritual guidance provided universally to all human beings in the form of deep inner impulses to create conditions of political liberty on earth.

The fundamental political battle on our planet is between: (1) political intellectualizing divorced from spiritual guidance, and (2) the guidance of our spirit which prompts and validates political intellectualizing.

Intellectualizing divorced from spiritual guidance leads to Utopian dictatorship (liberal-progressive fascism). Liberal-progressives will proclaim fiercely that the target of their Utopian programs is improving human life, but their government interference always produces in the long run their true objective, an ego purpose deeply hidden from their awareness by their addiction to intellectualizing without spiritual guidance: the ego's goal of difficulty, chaos, pain, and ultimately death. Forgive them ... for they literally know not what they do.

On the other hand, letting our spirit lead us in our intellectualizing, and always verifying our intellectual conclusions against the truth known inside ourselves at a spiritual level, creates a society of political liberty and serves the goal of life. This is called "doing it right."

Libertarians can't be totally wiped out in American politics because despite often sabotaging their own cause they at least begin at the deep fundamental level just discussed. In other words they start out by "doing it right." Long term success is assured for those libertarians who finally surrender to doing it right not merely in their beginning, but throughout the political fight.

Every once in a while in history a man or woman arises in politics who is doing it right. Pay attention to Senator Rand Paul.

Libertarians addicted to self-sabotage will of course find fault with Rand Paul. "He's not purely libertarian!" "He's romancing establishment Republicans." But if you want to further the cause of political liberty there is no better way than to achieve a position of enormous and widespread influence. And if you want to achieve a position of enormous and widespread influence there is no better way than to play the game as it has been set up ... and play to win. Here is a link to a Washington Post article which seems to imply that Rand Paul is doing it right: Rand Paul builds 50 state network.

To understand the insane psychology of modern "liberal progressives," read Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged."


"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles

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…
