Why Rand Paul Reaches Voters On The Deepest Level

On the surface Rand Paul's appeal to people seems to be related to his attractive stance on various issues such as eliminating government spying on its own citizens, strong yet non-trespassing defense, or liberty being more important than elitist schemes. But the real appeal of Rand Paul to a vast majority of voters will be much deeper, an attraction which none of the other presidential candidates can match.

A politically neutral person who can see auras or sense auras will verify, "Rand Paul is much more open to his innate spirit than the other candidates." [Atheists please forgive this article's use of the term "spirit." Consider substituting for "spirit" the scientific phrase "universal holographic nature."]

It will also be verified to us that the overtly religious candidates like Mike Huckabee and Ron Santorum are actually more closed to our innate spirit, as if their religious beliefs at least in some ways render them closed-minded.

"Okay, but why is it so attractive for a politician to be open to spirit?"

Understanding the answer can bring a very worthwhile change in one's entire evaluation of all political candidates, so bear with the details.

Whether we consider ourselves religious or atheist or neither, we are nonetheless spiritual human beings. We experience a physical body, feelings, thoughts, and spiritual impulses. Many deny their spiritual impulses from time to time, but those impulses are present inside us ... and when we are honest we admit to them.

It is our spiritual nature which moves us to do marvelous things. We might be moved to write a wonderful novel, discover a cure for cancer, be a good mother, build a business that produces goods, or rescue a little animal who is trapped. Maybe we are moved to do something we can't even see the value of at first, but we do it because something deep inside us tells us it is right for us to do. That something deep inside us is our spiritual nature.

It is our spiritual nature which speaks to us from deep within saying, "We are all in this together ... every living being. What is truly good for one is good for all. What is truly good for all is good for one."

It is our spiritual nature which also says deep inside us, "It is I who will show you what is truly good."


Our thoughts are based on limited information and limited perception. In order to make a correct intellectualized judgment as to what is truly good, we would have to be 100% completely aware of an inconceivably wide range of factors; past, present, and future. We would need to have certain advance knowledge of all the effects of our judgment on everyone and everything. We would have to be absolutely sure that we didn't have the slightest slanted angle of perception.

Who could possibly have this magnitude of information? Who except in the height of fantasy could imagine themselves to have such a totally all-seeing and all-knowing viewpoint? How many times have we been so thoroughly sure we knew the facts upon which to base correct judgment, only to find out later how wrong we were?

Because philosophers and lawyers are just like ourselves, subject to limited information and limited perception, neither can we rely on even the most scholarly who use the best intellectual reasoning to help us discover what is truly good.


Our emotions are brought about by our thoughts and ideas. Since our thoughts are based on very limited information and a very limited viewpoint, so are our emotions. Should our thoughts not serve us well, neither will our emotions serve us well, even unto breakdown.


Our physical body is literally only a servant doing the bidding of our thoughts and feelings and spiritual impulses. Would a man ever risk bodily danger for a higher good if his body was his guide?


Our spiritual nature on the other hand, because it is shared with every living being, knows what is truly good for all. Our spiritual nature is present inside us to influence, teach, and guide our thoughts, emotions, and physical body. Whether or not we listen inside ourselves to our spiritual nature is another story, but our spiritual nature is inside us waiting to be heard.

In any situation, if we quiet our thoughts, quiet our emotions, quiet the urges of our body, and listen inside ourselves to our spirit, we know what is the truly right thing to say or do. We don't need a legislator, or philosopher, or psychologist, or political correctness detective, or church authority of any kind to tell us what is right. If we are honest with ourselves, we know the answer is inside of us. Our spirit is our guide.

Rand Paul, being more in-touch with our spirit than the other presidential candidates, knows better than these other candidates what is right. This translates with crucial importance in the political realm.


We don't always listen inside to our spirit, do we? Maybe sometimes we listen to our thoughts, emotions, or even the urges of our body, instead of listening to our spirit. Does our spirit know we are not going to always listen deep inside? Of course. Our spirit knows about human shortcomings and mistakes.

So our spirit says, "Here ... in case you forget to listen inside yourself, I'll let you know in advance that I am never going to guide you to murder, nor am I ever going to guide you to commit adultery, nor am I ever going to guide you to steal, nor am I ever going to guide you to bear false witness against your neighbor. If you want to, you can call these laws."

Thus laws are born. In the beginning, laws are born of our spirit ... as reminders.


After a long time, when the beginning has been forgotten, many, many laws are born not of our spirit, but of the egos of men and women.

Therein lies the first and main reason why governments, legislatures, and laws should always be suspect. They may not be in rapport with the spiritual nature inside of men and women. They may be instruments of men and women's egos and not instruments of our spirit.

Rand Paul, being more in-touch with our spirit than other candidates, is therefore less influenced by ego than other candidates. Thus he can be trusted more than the others with the guardianship of laws.

People with strong ego-vested interests in the political realm will hate Rand Paul and attack him because he represents danger to ego-vested interests. But voters who sincerely want the highest good for everyone will automatically sense (maybe quite clearly, maybe more vaguely, but sense nonetheless) that Rand Paul is the best candidate. Because on a level deeper than thought or emotion or body ... the spirit we all share rejoices when seeing itself in Rand Paul.

a socialist governmental system led by a dominant elite which seeks to control industry and commerce, and uses legislation and governmental decree to force Utopian programs on people.

one's natural state of being; a governmental system reflecting one's natural state, including voluntary funding and voluntary willingness to join and cooperate with minimal intrinsic rules, but with no programs of "good intention" forced on people "for their own good."

If you are newly waking up to your innate libertarian core and want to investigate deeper the underlying nonsense of the liberal-progressive religion of government worship, give yourself the pleasure of reading Ayn Rand's epic and masterful novel, 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

Interesting factoid: for the last election year 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." (Prayer from A Course in Miracles)

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…
