The 3 Truths that Will Elect Ron Paul President of the United States

Ron Paul's victory in the Ames, IA Straw Poll is very telling. Have no doubt--this was an absolute victory of the highest order. Why? Because the MSM's "golden-boys" were too afraid to come out in the open and face him. According to the media, RP lost to Neo-Con Bachman by 152 votes. Funny how 162 votes were "lost" or somehow "scattered" when Neo-Con Bachman gave out 1250 more tickets than Ron Paul.

Americans know who won--those of us paying attention, anyway--and NOBODY believes Ron Paul didn't win in a political-landscape-changing landslide. Nobody. Unfortunately that does not equal "most". Recent studies show that we do not need "most"--only 10%--and we have MUCH MORE than we need to CHANGE THIS COUNTRY! (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/07/110725190044.ht...) But you know what?

This is an absolute victory for truth, liberty, and the American way for many reasons--allow me to elaborate.

#1) Ron Paul is feared by everyone. Why? Because if they engage him with logical reasoning they LOSE. EVERY TIME. They have no chance to win a reasoned debate with Ron Paul which is why the media must run cover for them. He's too smart, too well-read and too well-thought-out. He knows too much. He has too much history and research on his side. And if the American people ever learned even a fraction of what Ron Paul has forgotten about economics he would win in a landslide anywhere, anytime, any day. And they know it. So they fear him and must demonize and discourage ignorant people from listening to him. They have failed.

#2) The Days of publicly shaming Ron Paul are OVER! His supporters are the smartest among all Americans--PhD's, Professors , Professional Entrepreneurs, Wall Street Traders, Fund Managers--the wealthiest and most educated among the entire population and their support can no longer be discounted as "a bunch of crazies"--especially by our "conservative" media (that does nothing but support war, war, and more war--with 70% of their income from war-supporting Big-Pharma Advertising (70% last time I looked).

#3 Things have changed here in America. The dollar does not buy what it used to buy--have you filled your tank lately? Looked at the price of gold? How about the price of a gallon of (preferably RAW) Milk? It's insane! And Ron Paul and all people who know about the horrible destruction wreaked on this nation by the Fed--a for-profit-private banking cartel--know it. There is no doubt that 2 dimes from the 60's can still pay for a gallon of gas--as long as they are melted down and sold for their bullion value (because gold and silver are and always have been and always will be the ONLY unit of money measurement!)--and Americans are waking up to this absolute fact of economics. We--the people--are suffering economic hardships because corrupt congresspeople gave the USA's banking power to a private, for-profit banking cartel. It's time to take the power back! But we all know who runs the media because we've seen "America: From Freedom to Fascism" and know that under the current structure that this will not happen.

The reason Ron Paul will be elected President of the United States of America in 2012 is because the people who support him will not allow the emotion-based, Keynesian-based, flawed-premise-based, collectivist-communist-based thinking that is incorrect to invade the American Political Process on a level big enough to do...anything other than lose...this time.

For the Christians that are reading this and think that Ron Paul is a "little too Libertarian", please realize that in The Law of God--found in the first five books of The Bible--man-made legislation is strictly prohibited. Telling others how to live their lives by passing laws is prohibited--by God. Wake up and stop believing these people who lie to you. God is not someone you pray to for riches and "financial prosperity" as so many false preachers would have you believe (that's EVIL, in fact!). And going to war over oil and minerals and land and strategic position and perceived power is certainly not something that God ever sanctioned. Love thy neighbor as thyself--this is the first and greatest commandment don't forget!

We all know in our hearts that electronic voting is completely corrupt--we've seen the computer programmers testifying before congress that they wrote programs to flip votes 51-49 for whoever their client paid them for. Electronic voting must be banned and any Secretary of State that does not agree must be run out of office from their constituents in whatever manner possible to ensure honest elections that the Constitution of these United States Demands. The Supreme Law of the Land is NO JOKE. Anyone who gets in the way is a TRAITOR--and we all know the penalty for that, don't we Ethel and Julius?

And when silly little TV stations and radio stations and newspapers lie to people they must be held accountable--in court. This is how the other side does it. Ron Paul is a beautiful man that I would love to have as a neighbor, but in the current environment of the American Political Process, I'm not that nice. I'm a helluva lot nicer than our Founding Fathers, but I'm not nice enough to turn the other cheek--not in this case.

When the media clearly and intentionally damages a Presidential Candidate's chances there are serious damages--in the TRILLIONS--to our nation. They will no longer get away with it as a result of a number of initiatives I know of that have formed and been funded.

There are a LOT of truth-seeking, liberty-loving, top-of-their-class law school grads looking for a gig (due to our currently horrible job market). Fighting for America is on the top of their list of priorities--not getting a government gig and putting some poor schmuck in prison--forever--for growing a crop our founding fathers grew themselves.

Like Ron Paul has said: our Founding Fathers would be ASHAMED OF US if they knew what kind of harassment and illegal federal usurpations and penalties the American people were dealing with in 2011.

It's time to stop being ashamed and time to start telling the people we know and love what the truth is--even if our own personal social lives suffer. We must do this if we plan on living in the kind of country we want to live in.

If we don't, our days are numbered.

... if the question arises as to where we should stand on Economics, we can point out the fact that the Bible mandates free market capitalism. It is anti-socialist. The proof is here: 10,000 pages of exposition, verse by verse. Free: http://bit.ly/ohJm3V

Favorite quotes from that site:

The essence of democratic socialism is this re-written version of God's commandment: "Thou shalt not steal, except by majority vote."

"Economic democracy" is the system whereby two wolves and a sheep vote on what to have for dinner.

Fact: There has never been an expository Bible commentary that shows that the Bible teaches anything other than free market capitalism.

Solid Analysis. Especially

Solid Analysis. Especially on the electronic machines where they testified it's a fraud.

ive read it's actually 8-10%

If 8 - 10% of people start moving in one direction, everyone starts going in that direction.

Great scientific article

Great scientific article linking to the 10% spread theory. Not trying to shoot you down or anything, but what the Austrians and RP preach about is "human action". The science of which would be called "praxeology." Essentially that stat is good and on average thats how things spread, but with human action, other undecided factors can weigh into any odds, or outcome in which you could not have actually forecasted.



This is the exact reason they are against centralized planning from the federal government.

Needless to say keep spreading the liberty message loud and clear until we can't speak anymore!

can you explain #3 more? What

can you explain #3 more? What do you think taking them to court will do..?

#3 is about...

The economy and people waking up to the damage that the Fed is causing/has caused to the value of the dollar through the "hidden tax" that many other GOP-ers are waking up, acknowledging, and finally acquiescing to as a result of Ron Paul's constant pressure on this topic. And their constituents asking why they aren't talking about the facts of the economic situation.

People--especially big businesses--fear lawsuits for many reasons but mainly because they are expensive. Media organization rely on the public believing that they are a trustworthy source of information. When it is demonstrated that they are not a credible source of information their viewership--and revenues--decline.

With the media, public confidence is EVERYTHING. Don't forget--they are a for-profit business--all of them. Follow the money...

First & Greatest?

PLEASE tell me that you're the ONLY "well read traditional Catholic" who thinks "love thy neighbor" is the "first and greatest" commandment...

You're not going to convince Christians by misquoting our Scriptures to us.

Hey Billy--We've Met...

I think. I produced an event a few years back that focused on Money/Currency and the future and I believe you and I had a few Rolling Rocks together talking about the gold standard and economics. Your group rented a room at the hotel we selected for the event to pitch the idea for your proposed law.

You looked down on--and spoke down to--me and I didn't correct you, even though I went to college and I'm a former floor trader (I traded billions) and I know a fair amount about economics and markets. We "Traditional Catholics" are like that.

I forgive you for your attitude. It's unfortunate that you have such an "Ours vs. Theirs" attitude regarding the Bible. I hope you are intelligent enough to realize that the Bible you should be reading is the Douay-Rheims version--not some British King's version! Love conquers all Billy--haven't you read this in YOUR Bible?

Regardless, I wish you the best and am glad to see you here on the Daily Paul--what a great Web site, right?

I pray for your soul Billy...and I hope you remember this: people do not remember how smart you are or what you did, but how you made them feel. This is about personal relationships--not about political debate--so don't get it confused.

For though you think you know the thing, you have no certainty, until you try. -Sophocles

No...

I don't think we've ever met, and I don't think I've ever rented any room anywhere to promote Constitutional Tender.

I certainly had no intention to "talk down to you" in my comment here. My only concern is that we be accurate in the points we make to other people and groups as we promote Dr. Paul and his ideas. Saying that "love thy neighbor" is the "first and greatest" commandment is factually incorrect, no matter WHAT version of the Bible you use (the Catholic versions differ from the Protestant versions in the TEN Commandments of the Old Testament, not the Two Great Commandments of the New Testament).

Matthew 22 reads very clearly, "Master, which is the greatest commandment in the law? Jesus said to him: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment." Now, Jesus does go on to say, "And the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets." So the second one is "like" it, but it's still second, and it's still not as great. So again, it's very clear that saying that "love thy neighbor" is the "first and greatest" commandment is factually incorrect.

And again, I want to reiterate that I'm not copping an attitude on this, or making this out to be some kind of "Ours vs. Theirs" thing regarding the Bible. No matter what version you use, this is a simple fact, and if we're going to go to Christians of any denomination and try to use their Scriptures to promote an idea or a candidate, we need to be careful to use them appropriately and factually. Otherwise, we will face the likelihood of being dismissed as simply trying to "use" them and their faith to promote a political agenda - which we certainly don't want to be perceived as doing.

I'm sorry I made you feel bad, that wasn't my purpose in posting at all. I recognize that quick blog posts usually do very little to convey actual intent or emotion, so I hope you can forgive me that mine conveyed those things to you incorrectly. I just don't want to see us stumble and fall short of our goal of effectively communicating the need for Dr. Paul's election. Your other points are very effective; I'd love to see this point be just as effective, and not be dismissed out of hand by someone who knows major points of the Bible, and this is certainly a major one.

Keep up the great work! :)

Playing word games with the Word

What a petty, vicious and proud "Christian" you are attacking the author of this excellent piece. If you believe this brother in Christ has stumbled correct his error with patience and LOVE, not this holier than thou Pharisee attitude. This article is referring to the greatest law in the context of human society.

Matthew Chapter 22
34But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. 35Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, 36Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38This is the first and great commandment. 39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Semantically speaking your are right, but as the Dude says "you're not wrong Walter you're just an asshole"

Why do you pit the Word against itself? "Love Thy Neighbor As Thyself" is the co-greatest law which derives itself from "Loving God With All Thy Heart". Your hypocrisy is not submitting to either law in your ugly comments. Loving your fellow man is an extension of our own individual love of God

Galations 5:14

"For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."

No one is interested in your trash talk.

"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."

No, no Word games here...

... and I wasn't "attacking" the original poster in my comment here. My only concern is that we be accurate in the points we make to other people and groups as we promote Dr. Paul and his ideas. Saying that "love thy neighbor" is the "first and greatest" commandment IS factually incorrect, and if we're going to go to Christians of any denomination and try to use their Scriptures to promote an idea or a candidate, we need to be careful to use them appropriately and factually.

Jesus himself said they were 'like unto each other'

and that the whole Law of God is summed up in these two commands. That's enough for me. We show our love for God by loving our neighbor. (which by the way, even includes our enemies)

Theory on God ...

Let me begin by saying this ... I was raised as a catholic, in my travels I have attended Baptist Churches (Witch I believe that their delivery is more Energetic , Sorry I have fallen asleep more times during services in Catholic Churches) Protestant, a Southern Style Baptist, (Witch I loved) and a few others I can't remember the names of them. and though I have never attended a Mosque, or Jewish temple They basically share the same message. So Let ask you this, and I know this is a Very passionate group of people. In biblical times as well as hear with the natives of this land, they are connected in my mind by this ... If god made us and thus understands us, the reason for the differences in our Collective love for him is this Knowing how we were back then, We have no common ground being so removed from one another that we would trust the differences in each other, so say a Native american came to Israel and said he talk to god and showed them the way, he would either be called a devil, crazy, or executed. They wouldn't be able to accept him on this premise. So, if say a disciple of Jesus went to the Muslims instead of Mohamed Would they be able to accept him, I don't think so, even today we can't seem to see outside of our own beliefs (Not just religious) to be able to understand their train of thought. This is what I believe, and I hope I don't insult anyone, That everyone is Loving the same god, in their own way because that is the only way that god knew we could, it's a human disability (For want of a better term) In a movie about the church (Catholic) there's a passage I found to be interesting .. God had said "Turn over a stone, and you will find me, Split a piece of wood, and I will be there." If this is true, then how can we say that any other religion is wrong over ours. am I making sense ? Am I wrong ? Even the Native American belief system talk about a great spirit, that governs all of nature and being a people who was in nature all the time, Meaby god knew this was the thing they would understand. I believe that we are all god children, and if this is true, aren't we killing our family for our own selfish reasons. Resources and influence, not god will for us. Is any of this making sense ??

yes, it is

It is a real scandal that some who profess Christianity can say they hate anyone. It is one thing to recognize you have enemies, it is another to break a direct command. Jesus (Y'shua, if you prefer) commanded us to love our enemies. If you are a Christian, you may consider either Jews or Muslims your enemies,(depending on your bent, maybe even both) but you are not free from the command to 'love your enemies, pray for those who persecute you, do good to those who abuse you, etc.' As for who Jesus is, Muslims take the ill-reasoned approach that modern Jews take, (and that no Jew would have taken in His time) --He was a great man, a prophet. But as C.S. Lewis said, Jesus never left us that option. Some would shut Him up as a lunatic, some would declare him a liar or demon (or demon-possessed) and kill Him, others will admit that He is Lord and alone is worthy of the title 'God the Son'. C.S. Lewis said it was utter non-sense to come to the conclusion that 'He was simply a good man.'

Why? Because of the claims He made, as recorded by his disciples. They claim, throughout the gospels, He affirmed His own deity. (We can rule out the idea of the disciples being deceitful, because they had nothing to gain and everything to lose if they held to His position against both the leadership of both Rome and the synagogue.)

Now in modern day New Age theology, this would be no issue, but in a mono-theistic culture like that of the Jews, it would be blasphemous, suicidal, or both. This is why the religious leaders were so infuriated by Jesus. He claimed to have a higher standard than the man-made laws they used to 'fence the Torah', He claimed a unique relationship with God, and even went so far as to say, "Before Abraham was, I AM!" (using the name of God which means I AM) This almost caused Him to become stoned, literally, on at least one occasion. They later brought Him out (many of the religious leaders, not all the Jews, but that is a side point) to Pilate, who tried to set Him free, but their arguments prevailed and He was crucified. That was not end of it, however. On the third day he arose, (verifying His claims) and appeared to His disciples. He commanded His disciples to declare these truths to the whole world.

Hi David Ware

"Catholic" means, Universal. The Catholic Church's Saints are like bookmarks in history, standing as living witnesses to the mysteries of faith, Glories to God, Sufferings and Joys of the Flesh and so on. The Church, is very old and has substantial inner conflict that matters not to Catholics (as myself) what "The World" thinks. We are all sinners and only FAITH will get us into Heaven, not The Catholic Church. As Catholics, we accept ALL Baptisms in the name of Jesus Christ. The Catholic Church absorbs old religions/ spiritual beliefs, and inspirs new ones, such as Baptists. Our Mass is a reading from the old testiment, a reading from the new testiment, and a gospel followed by the homily. We gather to WORSHIP Christ and pray together. Catholics were the Old World Order, and today, we continue to reach around the globe to feed and clothe the poor. Having issues with The Church is not new. There were issues even before the Church became The Church, let us Thank God for Saint Paul, as Saint Peter, our Rock, has never been known to be stable, yet, The Church remains strong and willing to serve in the name of LOVE (and it may not appear that way to "The world", but we are here for the people of the world, none the less).

OMG ...

I don't know how I made a call for Dr. Paul into religious discussion. LOL I am sorry, I am a little sleepy. I am sorry about that.

This is a terrific post. They

This is a terrific post. They can not even use the idea that he is "unelectable" now, because he has flown through all of their benchmarks. How can they still say "he can't win"? Is it because they are saying WE ARE TOO STUPID to elect such a great peacemaker?
What are their reasons? Do you HAVE any, Sirs?

Because the MSM's "golden-boys" were too afraid to come out...

Yup.

America: The Satanic Empire

Christianity and libertarianism are mutually inclusive. God designed man with free will for a reason. To sin or not to sin must always be a choice, that is a man who chooses God should do so only from free will. A man who decides to shoot heroin into his veins, sleep with prostitutes, eat pork, or have sex with men must, by God's will, have the right to choose to sin.

God's laws as laid down for men were intended to be enforced by God himself and God alone, and never by other men. Man always, by creator endowed right, can choose.

The use of laws by men against other men was always intended that where there is no victim, there is no crime. That man has free will to do whatsoever he chooses, no matter how heinous or vile, so long as he does not harm another person without his consent. That a man has total free will so long as he respects other men's total free will.

Only when we go down the dark path of legislating morality, to tell other men what they may do with their lives, even when it does not concern others, we play right into the hands of Satan.

To Satan, we are not free beings created in the image of God, we are but pawns to be used in his game, undeserving of the respect of a divine creation, and it is Satan's will that we follow his example, and deny each other the respect due a divine creation.

Libertarianism is Christianity and vice-versa. The two are intrinsically inseparable. The United States of America, is in fact a minion of Satan. She has become the Satanic Empire because she sees fit to rule other men's lives and enforce morality.

Only when America chooses the righteous path of true liberty will she be redeemed in the eyes of God and living in the grace of the Lord once again.

Yep!

You are sooooo right!

I also agree

I read somewhere once that all crimes and sins are essentially theft. when one is murdered, their life is stolen. When a lie is told, the truth is stolen etc etc...
So I also agree with you whole heartedly about bringing the media spin masters to justice. It's far beyond freedom of speech when they outright lie and hide behind the first amendment. There is real damage that is done and there should be justice, at least to the very worst offenders.
