Chuck Baldwin: Where do we go from here?

Believe it or not, I was thinking that my column of two weeks ago was my last column in which I would focus on Congressman Ron Paul — that was before the Republican National Convention in Tampa took place. I have never seen such a disgusting display of chicanery and duplicity in all of my life. So, in spite of the fact that I have written so much about The Greatest Congressman In US History (my title for Ron Paul), here I go again.

First, a report on Paul Fest: I was honored to be one of the featured speakers for the event, which drew thousands of Ron Paul supporters from all over the country. I was able to meet and speak with hundreds of these wonderful people, as they came up to me before and after I spoke.

I'll tell you where we go

We take control of the ballot boxes first.

This will be a real fight but after the last two elections we have more people trained and in place.

"They" are about to become "We"



That's sure a bunch of feel-good talk.

I just get all warm and fuzzy hearing that I have very little to do (beside pledging my life away) and some deity will take care of all our problems as long as we deserve it.

However, I find it a bit hypocritical to say all that with this mixed in the middle:

"2) Americans are lazy about finding truth. Today, more than ever with the vast information on the web, the truth is out there (except for most of the deepest and darkest secrets of conspiracy), and if people don't find it, something is wrong with them relative to the workings of conscience and self control. That's my point. Far too many people have become immune to the faint warning signals that something is wrong, or if they do hear it, they are too busy searching for material welfare to care."

How can one critique others for not finding the truth when the speaker himself touts solutions to remote partial truths?

We all know WHY people are distracted from learning the truth. It's because they're too busy trying to maintain or increase their rung on the social ladder. That it's a crime to lower oneself on this mythical beast is the crux of all false ambition plaguing the masses. Just think about it. Regardless of where a person is on it, society practically forces you to fight in order to maintain your position, now termed 'surviving', with increased costs, regulations, limitations and induced hardships and fears. Heaven forbid you want to actually climb higher, you either need to be a DaVinci or Einstein or sell your soul.

Why is this? Is it because that person subscribes to the wrong religion or to none at all? Hardly. That game is in place for all to fail at equally.

The real truth that's blatantly omitted from this write-up is that money has become the driving force behind all of society and the through it becoming scare to the masses, they are FORCED, not apathetic, to compromise increasing numbers of principles to survive.

Everyone on this site either knows or should know by now that the banks have skewed every financial system in their favor. They are robbing entire industries to the point that those industries are forced to collude against the people. Whose fault is this? Is it the corporations which now much spend literally millions of false dollars just to exist at a given level or is it the fault of those creating the playing field? What about government? Is it the fault of those whose naivete is shattered when they learn that only the bought-off get laws passed or is it the fault of those who now print such vast sums of money that NO PRICE IS TOO HIGH FOR THEM? Just think of the level of power you would have if you could simply create wealth topping any amount raised by your competitor.

We need to admit that we are in this fight, not against a party, a candidate, an issue, another group or some ethereal feeling. We are united against the common enemy of monetary scarcity or hoarding of money for the purpose of wielding power.

This is the path that auditing the fed leads to. Ron knows this and it's where the Ron Paul Movement needs to continue down.

I'm so tired of having trivialities pushed on us that result in endless arguments over which issue is more important when I know in my heart that we only have one real task. We have to return control of all the world's wealth to the people. Fortunately, we can have our cake and eat it too since it is free market principles and liberty that will aid in getting us there.

Let's unite to audit the fed and then end it. Let's offer private, local, free-market alternatives to every monopolistic, money grubbing requirement of society. Let's end the practice of getting something for nothing and return charity to being a system of need-based, accountable, altruistic donations. Let's offer a separate, incorruptible method of people's checks and balances on our government. And finally, let's massively unite behind an unbiased and independent media alternative.

Then we can say we know where we are going.

Another great

and on point post from Chuck Baldwin. That is the 50 million dollar question right now...Where do we go from here? I think wherever that may be, we need to start the journey by turning back to God with sorrow and repentance for ever turning away from Him and allowing this to happen to this once great nation.

Best and most true paragraph:

Now, with millions of so-called Christians and conservatives lining up in support of the phony conservative Mitt Romney, the American people are once again left with the choice of Twiddle Dee and Twiddle Dum. No, I don't buy the "anybody-but-Obama" mantra, either! In many ways, an unprincipled, compromising pseudo-conservative Republican is worse than an obviously liberal Democrat. The patriots of 1776 had far more to fear from Benedict Arnold than they did King George. An enemy easily identified is much less formidable than one who marches in the uniform of an ally.

And the quote about one's conscience is on point.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

He is such

a good writer.

also a great charismatic speaker

Thanks for a bump Brian.
