What Does Ron Paul Want?, by Justin Raimondo

http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2012/05/17/what-does-ron-...

..."In short, Paul is pursuing the very same strategy he’s been talking about since Day One of his remarkably successful campaign: harnessing the enthusiasm and discipline of his supporters to enter a basically hostile entity – the pro-war, pro-Big Government Republican party – and challenging the Powers That Be...."

..."What does Ron Paul want? In the short term, the goals of the campaign are an unknown, and indeed that’s good strategy. Why let your opponents know what you’re up to in advance? As I pointed out, the risks of the Paulians showing their hand too soon could have serious consequences in Tampa. Yet all this talk of platform planks, a prime time speaking spot for either Paul or his son, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky), or some such palliative is beside the point – because the point is the long term strategy of the movement, not the day-to-day twists and turns of the narrative.

In the long term, the Paulians are building the political and intellectual infrastructure that is the scaffolding of any successful movement."

International foreign policy reporting and analysis since 1995. Dr. Paul is a frequent contributor.

Thanks elviejo. Very interesting article. Justin wrote "Remaking the American Right" and has watched the history of the party unfold.

Exactly. Just as in sports, say football... Would you want the other team to have your playbook prior to the game? ;)

Thanks for posting
