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

 
"I think of myself as a freedom zealot."

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…
