Pragmatism KILLS liberty...ALWAYS!Submitted by SteveMartin on Wed, 06/13/2012 - 06:26
There is no escape from this basic fact!
Now that Benton, Olson and company have been outed for who they really are, maybe we should just ignore Rand totally like the NON-FACTOR in the liberty movement he has just made himself, and concentrate on insisting that while this campaign still exists (in any form worth supporting) it must be run by people who DO NOT ENDORSE BOGUS "PRAGMATISM" over principle. The call for the resignations of Benton and Olson MUST BECOME OVERWHELMING within the Paul movement NOW, or it is finished. Not only that, but Ron Paul must listen and heed, or it is still finished.
These novice losers like Benton have drunk the heavy-duty Kool-aide (which is being offered to them by the neocons, but received like it's their own idea) that we can pragmatically win something/anything of lasting importance from the other side by coddling them and getting cozy with them. THAT NEVER WORKS ANYWHERE NOR UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE. Whenever good associates closely with evil, evil always emerges victorious. Good does not "leaven the loaf," but evil always does. That is why the good book tells us to "come out from among them, and be ye separate." If you need another analogy-- why do all those good apples in the barrel never repair the one bad one?
Benton says things like... "(We must) realize the dynamics and the environment and get involved in the most pragmatic way." Yea, right Jesse. You have got to be one of the dumbest SOBs I have ever encountered, and it is plain that making all that UNDESERVED money has turned you totally away from any instincts for liberty you may have ever possessed.
To make matters worse, it certainly appears that TO A MAN (or woman), the real drivers of this campaign do not understand conspiracies, pooh pooh conspiracy FACTists like most of us, and do not have a clue how close this Republic is to being utterly destroyed by the real world conspirators who are building their one world government as we speak.
Those of us who gave so much time and effort to Ron Paul over the years deserve better than to be led around BY PEOPLE WHO ARE WORKING WITH THE ENEMY and quickly becoming the enemy themselves.
I love ya, Ron, I truly do, but...
Here is a dose of pragmatism for ya, Ron. FIRE THESE PEOPLE NOW OR SLIP INTO IRRELEVANCE ALONG WITH RAND.
