Obama and Paul: We Must Decide What Kind of a Country We Want

There are many aspirants for the chair in the Oval Office, but only two candidates for 2012 seem to understand the stakes for which this drama is being played. Everybody else seems to want to nibble around the edges of the issues, doing political business as usual.

One of the two is the Democrat incumbent. He is an arch-enemy of liberty and of the vision of the founders. Yet, he knows that we are dealing with sweeping, all-encompassing principles that, if he has his way, will turn this nation precipitously into a slave state in the model of European socialist democracies. Just recently he gave a speech in which he laid out the sweeping nature of his programs, and let us know in no uncertain terms that we must decide, very soon, what kind of a country we want to leave to our children.

The other, of course, is Representative Ron Paul. He is the Champion of the Constitution and seemingly the lone upholder of the principles of the founders. He is famous for telling us the burden on his heart, that we are standing at a crossroads that will determine what kind of country we are going to be. He wants to recover the vision of the Constitution. He frequently emphasizes that the election is what the country, and the government, is all about.

Here is the text of his 2011 CPAC speech, where this line ends the first paragraph:

"we need to change our philosophy about what this country is all about."

Obama is a philosopher king in the mold of Plato, Marx, Wilson and FDR.

Ron Paul is also a philosopher, but he doesn't want to be a king.

Both men understand the deep significance of their opposing positions.

I believe that is why in a recent poll Ron Poll showed the best chance of beating Obama in a general election. The contrast is stark.

Other Republican candidates are just politicians.

Even the Council on Foreign Relations grants grudging respect to Ron Paul in this backgrounder piece posted April 26, 2011:

Grudging respect I say because their hatred for Paul shows through. It is hatred that, should Ron Paul gain strength in the polls, will soon turn to fear. He threatens their entire agenda.

B.O.

I think he is Constitutional scholar of the European Union imo lol

Seriously, even with his limited legal experience and misconstrued university training in the understanding of the Constitution, RP would simply dissasemble his arguments and leave him with only basketball analogies imo

There is now way any Presidential contender from the Democrats apart from Kucinich possibly that could even stand a chance vs. RP in a debate.

Voted Up,

just after reading your post/intro to the subject. Will come back after going thru and reading the material on the links you provided. You anticipate rightly, the contest must be between RP and BHO. Obama is a skilled orator, but now he is seen as a pretender, a fake, - so he should take up a job in hollywood and leave the oval office. RP campaign team should focus on Obama being an impostor. There is something more important, I wonder if it can be announced at this stage, = Obama's loyal-tie lies with zion-(AIPAC). Now that is really a tricky subject, you canNot trifle with it.
CFR is the banksters club with global agenda. They are more loyal to London/$wiss than to america. Americans need to reVIVe the spirit of 1776, take back their country, and be champion/support for liberty world-wide. Because today america seems to be the machine for world-wide oppression.

re: edit: done. thanks.

it answers the question on top of this page.

Thank you for that CFR story link.

It's always good to know what your enemies are saying about you.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Oops

wrong thread

Mathew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Very well put together.

Ron Paul should use those words, "Obama just recently gave a speech in which he laid out the sweeping nature of his programs, and let us know in no uncertain terms that we must decide, very soon, what kind of a country we want to leave to our children."
Good stuff!

Mathew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Why Thank You

From the bottom of my naturalized Texas heart, for such kind words.

That was good. Thanks
