Destroying the Right/Left ParadigmSubmitted by HenryWilliamson on Fri, 08/26/2011 - 17:43
There were republicans who said that Obama (being a government community planner and otherwise no-name - to the general public)was not electable. And there were democrats who clearly understood that Bush was not electable. And then fell for a man who has only taken play after play on the international stage from Bush's failed foreign policies. By now you would think that the majority had felt the emotional political ping-pong or pissin' match between the two oligarchic, monolithic corporatists parties who participate in what is tantamount to a theft of our entire free and fair election rights.
I'm just thinking with Paul we can change the entire system by destroying the right/left paradigm that has only served the few elite in reality. If we elected such a man, thereafter we would be free (and it would be fair because we would be vigilant instead of apathetic generally speaking) to not re-elect or just flat out demand impeachment and removal from office. And we would. That's the new thought paradigm. Do what you say you're going to do. And if you don't : Goodbye you have no business in a role of leadership in this country. A leader does what they say they are going to do. Period.
Obama (good man that he might be or even once and future) Has only come up with barely substantial excuses and lame reasoning for any of the explanations for his actions. He is part of 'the system' that is responsible for propagating all this bs left/right stuff. 'People are just people/ People are just people / people are just people like you : basically we all really like each other. We really all get along with one another. The dominating characteristic of western thought up til now has mostly been that conflict cannot not exist. We cannot live our lives without conflict. Well, this is simply just false, we can live without conflict and one of the ways that we can do that is by simply doing what we say we are going to. It's accountability. There is no accountability in Washington. Zero. Until now.
I'm not telling you to convert to republicanism. Whatever that is. I'm inviting you to crash their system which has been and is thoroughly documented as unfair and (sadly) nothing close to the definition of free. Til now. I can tell you with no small degree of certainty that if Paul somehow magically said one thing and did another or we didn't buy an excuse he just for the first time in his life started selling - we would demand his impeachment and removal from office. And that would be our peaceful revolution letting the ruling class know that the days of power over or under someone are over. Over. We're all just...Powerful. Period. Really. So please feel free to help make accountability the norm.
Free and Fair elections (for real not just the illusion of) is what we are really revolting for because by voting for Ron Paul you are essentially revolting against the political elite or ruling class which have created and maintained what is more or less or exactly a hi-jacking of our political freedoms and most of our human rights.
Ron Paul first [because he is the only leader that has emerged with any sort of integrity from the Right/Left paradigm. He is a libertarian. We all are. It's called live and let live. That's just human. We like each other. Humans like each other. We are gonna end these wars. We are the ones who came here to do that. Ron Paul now, Whoever's best next. He isn't perfect. But he certainly is deserving of respect and probably admiration because his entire political life has been marked with taking his oath to defend the constitution seriously. It's the agreement between the governed and the governors. It absolutely must be taken seriously. Otherwise the governors are changing the agreement without the consent of the governed. That's wrong and all backwards if we are to truly live in a free society.
They have such a powerful influence on us that they've convinced most of us that our true norm (as humans) is ,what they've called, our noble unattainable ideals. I don't want to have to think about politics so much. It's a mess. And following politics can easily make a mess of your brain. But we're so conditioned to not be aware of what is actually happening behind all the jargony rhetoric that things have gotten out of hand. Chiefly, the largest transfers of wealth the world has ever known mostly through the use of force be it violent or psychological. I'm not a Paulite - though that word or any of the other commonly used words to describe Paul's supporters doesn't offend me - I'm a Peaceful Freedom-ite if anything. And I think most of us are.
So now here's our chance to make that statement. No more war for private gains and profits. Those are statements we all mostly agree on (unless we are the ones profiting off war however appallingly you aren't appalled by senseless murder.) And we'll never allow the banks to be such successful predators again under a Paul presidency. We won't allow it. We will become responsible for our own destinies. Because we are.
It's not about Dr. Paul it's about Paul's message which mostly everyone agrees with peace, prosperity and freedom. Unless like I said you are profiting off the lack of peace, prosperity and freedom. Which there are people who are and we are putting them to task or removing them from office and their roles as leaders. Those are not leaders. Those are enemies of the constitution and liberty. They serve not us (we the people) but special interests and lobbyists and the entity the lobbyists are lobbying for. What a significantly destructive end they have pursued and we have allowed.
Paul is our immediate chance to end that or at the very least begin that end by making such a grand statement where we all show our bravehearts and end this tyranny that pervades and continues to pervade our lives in ever expanding ways. We have this choice in front of us that will bring us infinitely closer to those ideals that are really our true human norms by voting for Ron Paul. That's my best pitch. (So far)
What is yours?
