Doug Wead: Don't Want My Nephew Dying over Bush Family Feud! & Why MSM Stopped Rabidly Smearing RP!Submitted by AnCapMercenary on Sat, 02/04/2012 - 18:02
All of the following videos were taken on Feb. 1st, 2012 at Fetzer Center, Western Michigan University:
WHY and HOW Doug evolved into a Ron Paul supporter: I didn't want my Nephew dying over a Bush Family Blood Feud.
They are not complete, but the ones already posted are well worth a viewing!
Doug also gives an excellent 1st hand account of how corrupt corporatist lobbying works at Executive Branch level: mainly how McDonald's got MILLIONS in subsidies and bailouts. While he doesn't say them by name, who he's referring to IS MickyD's is easily verifiable as they recently got bailed out by the FED. On a sidenote, for The Doc's own health sakes, while saving $ on the campaign trail is good, but I truly hope he'd stop eating at McDonald's!
Doug knows intimately the details of such lobbying as he was a senior adviser and campaign debate coach for Georg Herbert Walker Bush. He knows directly from 1st person experience, what he speaks of.
Most importantly, Doug lays out WHY the MSM suddenly stopped rabidly going after Dr. Paul on the Newsletters: Black family members of the victims of drugwar and truly racist, completely biased against poor minorities who suffer the most under our 'Judicial' system, actually en masse, without any organization, started writing and emailing MSM, and calling them out to DEFEND Dr. Paul and his proposed Anti-Drugwar policies!
It's become a cliche here, to a certain extent, and not to say, 'hey let's hang up the spurs,' but in a very REAL sense, we truly have ALREADY WON!
The Doc and We've done what no other modern political movement has been able to do: TRULY change hearts and minds of the citizenry, in an Intellectual Revolution, and inspired them to take the initiative and get involved!
Also being the master communicator that Doug his, he pretty much summed it all up in simple words what I've been telling those around me about the REAL point of a non-interventionist foreign policy, for a long time: "Pride of Ownership."
Just as in any individual's own lives, when one learns or earns something on their own, there's always a resultant "Pride of Ownership." You've earned that skill. You've earned that knowledge. And no one is gonna be able to take that away from you, even by force. It is yours forever, and because of the manner in how you acquired it, you value it more. You don't owe anyone, you don't feel obligated to pay back anyone for it. It really is ALL yours.
Now a Great Mentor would inspire you to seek knowledge and OWN it, NOT be spoon fed it: which is always the mindset of a insecure control-freak authoritarians.
Because when one incessantly tries to convince or force others, or WANTS others to believe that they NEED him, to be worthy, to survive, to succeed, etc. THAT is a precise characteristic of an insecure person.
Because they themselves are needy, they want you to feel like you need him, too. Same dynamic as the one in an abusive relationship, aka a citizen's 'relationship' with their Govt.
Yes, the Govt is the WifeBeater and the gullible citizenry are those who continue to rationalize a Stockholm Syndrome by telling themselves "he beats me because he loves me."
Frankly, the three joker RINO candidates are exactly that.
But the same extends to our foreign policy, too.
Most cultures go through internal tribal infighting that over time grow to be partisan to city-states bickering over personalities and resources. Now there are always typically a time frame in which those feuds either get resolved or settle down enough where each side can just tolerate each other enough to live on and not constantly try to kill each other.
Well, introduce a foreign power into their thousands of yrs old feud, even IF in the unlikely scenario in which an outsider helps them resolve the feud, not as a broker but as an active financier and arm one faction vs. another, even when the bombs stop dropping, those feuding parties NEVER truly get to OWN their independence. They merely become vassal States, like Japan, Germany, S. Korea, and Israel. And, are simply left arguing over what coulda shoulda happened without outside influence.
"Pride of Ownership" is precisely what the Doc has been saying, and Doug so masterfully articulated in that video.
Mr. Wead, if you're reading, I for one, and I know many here consider ourselves lucky to have you on our side.
So, thank you Doug.
And keep "killing them with kindness." Your disarmingly charming smile as you gently slay with your common sense tome, is a DeathRay against your unsuspecting foes.o)
