In his farewell to Congress speech, RP mentioned "... psychopathic authoritarians endorse government initiated force to change the world."

RP isn't a psychologist, but as a medical doctor wouldn't he be keenly aware of the clinical meaning of the word psychopath when he uses it in a pre-written speech? Some people use the word as a general insult to people who seem to not care, but when RP uses it in this context it suggests to me that he is aware of a lot more than he has been willing to talk about. Alex Jones talks about the traits of these people who are manipulating things behind the scenes, and psychopathy is one of the central themes.

If he knows about this, what else does he know?

My memory may be failing me, but I don't remember RP accusing others this strongly before. Up until now I remember him referring to his peers and others as misguided and ignorantly following the wrong theories. Other than demagoguery, psychopathy is the strongest accusation I remember hearing from him in terms of something approaching evil.

Context, Utterance, and Speaker

When you know how Dr. Ron Paul can read The Constitution, with its flaws, with its good, and how to behave, stand, and speak faithfully for this text ...


... ON RECORD ...

... then, you also know that about this "psychopathic" word that our Last True Statesman used, in context...

... we better NOT take it lightly.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Ha. That remark stood out to me, too. It was remarkable.

"Psychopathic Authoritarians."

Wow. You can not get more concise than that.

And he made his remark in passing but it might as well have been molten iron on my soul.

In this cryptic description, there is no doubt that the good doctor is alert and wary of psychopaths...who are pulling the strings in the world right now..

His remark was not by accident....but was with clairvoyant accuracy of the truism that we are all slowly discovering as we awake out of the haze of our brainwashing: Namely, the world is run by psychopaths.

This is a terrifying realization at first. Then it becomes liberating.

We now have a real, tangible enemy.

And it ain't Osama Bin Laden. Or Al Quaeda.

The Enemy within.

Time to light the torches.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

I also want to mention that

I also want to mention that this point of view also helps make sense why RP contacted Alex Jones to come on his show. I was intrigued by Alex's comment that they've been leaving RP alone and waiting for him to make contact when he's ready. They're also both very Christian in their philosophies, so their beliefs about evil may line up more than is obvious.


Ron Paul could not have managed the path he traveled, and is traveling, without taking great care in choosing the appropriate words to fit the current demand.

There can be little in the way of doubt as to the type of mind possessed by people who have made torture and mass murder not only legal but the RULE, not the exception.

The story line of good people not capable of doing good things, rather making repeated mistakes, is not accurate, and someone claiming as much is either compromising on telling the whole truth, for some reason, or is guilty of lying.

I pay attention to how carefully Ron Paul, like no other person I have read, or heard speak, chooses his words. He manages a very careful balance of speaking the God's honest truth, and speaking the language of Double Speak, which may be necessary to reach more than a very few people willing to listen to the truth.


RP on psychopats

..."how carefully Ron Paul, like no other person I have read, or heard speak, chooses his words."


"Psychopath" is NOT a clinical term (no DSM code for it). Still, in Ron Paul's usage it is a useful expression to narrow down, quite definitely and precisely, a group of people on the current political arena.

In politics the percentage of narcissistic psychopaths is greater than, say, among caregivers of the elderly.

Ron Paul ... forever.
