What is Really Causing Division in our Movement and on Daily Paul and how to have Unity?Submitted by David144 on Tue, 06/19/2012 - 12:31
I think what has divided us so much is Rand Paul coming out and saying that "the nomination process is over". The people still backing Rand are so confused that they are still behind him in this, but yet they hate and call anyone a "troll" who would ever say "the nomination process is over" except Rand or Jack Hunter, and maybe a few others. It's doublespeak and they are divided within themselves and confused. And are hitting the defense button, but yet lying to themselves, and using deception to win arguments, and prove what they believe. I think it's denial and refusing to accept the truth.
Further, on top of Rand saying "the nomination process is over", he said he's going to "endorse" Romney. But not to stop there he said he would also "campaign" for Mitt Romney.
Now herein lies the issue of why there is such a denial regarding what Rand has done:
Everyone in the liberty movement so badly wanted Rand to be the next Ron. Now they are refusing to accept in their mind that Rand is a sellout. And they are refusing it so badly that they begin name calling "trolls" etc. But if anyone else other than Rand did it, in their minds these people would be "sellouts", "trolls", "flip-floppers", "traitors" etc. Again, they don't see that they are divided in themselves. And if divided in themselves, how can they become united in a movement. In order to be united they have to let go of Rand Paul and stand for integrity and be honest with themselves.
You can see here where many people are confused. And after all their confusion, some will get upset with anyone who disagree's with Rand. They feel that people are not allowed to speak negatively about what Rand did. That's not how things work when people are vying for liberty and the constitution. Everyone has the right to speak.
I believe that their may be some in the establishment who have infiltrated the Daily Paul boards and are seeking to confuse the people into believing "It's alright if Rand says "the nomination process is over, and I'm endorsing and campaigning for Romney", but if anyone else we will call them traitors, trolls etc..." This is two opinions conflicting in the very same sentence, and thus division in their own minds.
Think about this long and hard for a while. Ron Paul never said the nomination process is over, neither am I. I think we should do all we can for the good doctor. But we need to recognize what's really causing the division here. There are also unanswered questions regarding some of the campaign staff regarding Trigve Olson and Jesse Benton and their backgrounds.
Also, one other issue is regarding Alex Jones and Adam Kokesh as well as a few others. I disagree with alot of things they say. And I've even at certain times found some things they say to be revolting, however: Everything I've seen from them tells me they would never endorse or campaign for Mitt Romney and they are on our side. If they did, then immediately I would say "HEY, wth? Now you've gone to far." Come on guys let's think about these things a little more and consider first whether we are so defensive of people that we will even lie to ourselves in order to believe everything that comes out of their mouth, and will support everything that they say.
Division came when people started realizing that their was vote fraud. We had some who couldn't accept the truth and then they started getting mad at those who said there was a conspiracy calling them "conspiracy theorists", "trolls" etc. And the posts saying something was going on were voted down and division came into the ranks, people wanted others to stop talking about it.
Let's be real and honest with ourselves first, then with one another. God bless.
