Larken Rose endorses . . . Mitt Romney. LOL!Submitted by dabooda on Sun, 02/05/2012 - 21:21
This is an e-mail Larken Rose just sent out to subscribers. I don't agree with him intellectually on this one, but on an emotional level, I sympathize: Ron Paul may be what America needs, but Romney is what it deserves.
For those of you who don't know, Larken Rose is the author of The Most Dangerous Superstition, which I personally regard as the greatest book on individual liberty vs. government ever written. Which makes his endorsement of Romney very interesting (and funny.)
Romney! Romney! Romney! by Larken Rose
I am thrilled that Mitt Romney seems to be well on his way to becoming the Republican presidential nominee. No, I'm not kidding. I think it is the best possible outcome, far better than Ron Paul winning.
Now, as anyone who knows me can guess, it's not because I think Romney is a great guy who will do great things. On the contrary, he is the quintessential political whore: a delusional, narcissistic, god-complex pathological liar who has no beliefs, values or substance of his own. He is a slimy, dishonest prevaricator who will say whatever he thinks will benefit himself, without the slightest regard for truth or morality. He is a two-faced, opportunistic con-man, a crook of the highest order, devoid of any shred of principles or integrity.
How do you like my endorsement of Mitt so far?
So why would I want him to win? In fact, I don't just want him to be the Republican candidate; I want him to be the next President. Yes, I'm absolutely serious.
But why? Because I think Puppet Romney would do an outstanding job of finishing what Puppet Clinton, Puppet Bush, and Puppet Obama have done so far. No, I'm not talking about their totalitarian agenda. I'm talking about completely destroying the legitimacy of the U.S. ruling class in the eyes of its victims, and in the eyes of the rest of the world. If we want people to see through the extortionistic, violent and fraudulent charade that is "government," what better way to do that than to have the ultimate crooked, paid-off, self-serving empty suit megalomaniac occupying the White house?
It took a while until the dupes who had so enthusiastically shouted "change," wetting themselves with joy at the coming of the Obamessiah, started to notice that nothing changed. There are still a few, but not many, who haven't yet realized that the answer to the question, "Can we use government to fix everything?" is a resounding, "No, we can't!" Obama's emotion-exploiting, empty manipulation eventually wore off, but it took a while for a lot of people to accept reality. The guy is just Bush III.
Before that, devout Republican state-worshipers spent years going to great lengths to try to avoid admitting that Bush II was a big-government, collectivist control freak. But most of them now realize it.
Well, who would have any doubt about Romney? Who would imagine for a moment that the guy has an honest bone in his body, or that he believes in anything at all, other than his own wealth, power and glory? His flip-flopping is downright legendary, to a hilarious degree. If you want to help people see through the facade of "government," to realize that it's nothing but a gang of liars and crooks plundering and enslaving mankind for its own benefit, then Mitt is your man!
In contrast, if Ron Paul became President, it would create among many a renewed, but completely misguided hope in the possibility of "politics" and "working within the system" achieving freedom, despite the fact that it has never happened in the history of the world. With Dr. Paul in office, people might start respecting the presidency again, and that is not a good thing. To put it another way, don't let Ron Paul ruin what so many politicians have spent decades accomplishing--namely, demolishing any imagined credibility or legitimacy the gang of crooks in Washington ever had.
The shortest path from where we are today, to an actually free society, starts with Mitt Romney as President. Now there's an awesome sentence to take out of context, huh? But it's true. If you want state worship and blind faith in "government" to crumble, you should try to put the biggest elitist buffoon, the most obviously corrupt liar possible, on the throne. And Mitt Romney sure fits that bill! Go Mitt!
