Yes. Only Paul can beat Obama

Yes. Only Paul can beat Obama in 2012. IF he is given a FAIR SHAKE and a FAIR SHOT that Obama says in his electioneering video is the American Way. The likelihood is that the general election will be conducted in much the same way as the primaries if Ron Paul is the nominee.

It will require a tremendous effort by the grassroots to get the message out to the People and many will have to wake up. There is a good chance also that many Republicans will either vote Obama or sit it out since they are inveterate warmongers who sincerely, and wrongly, see Dr. Paul as "dangerous". These are not insurmountable obstacles but the People will have to roll their sleeves up to defeat the machine.

It does appear on the evidence as though the controllers have selected Obama for a second term. Romney is such an obvious loser against him. Romney represents the 1% in spades and Obama will be positioned as the candidate of the 99%. Obama is now priming himself as the peace candidate by backing off Iran and shaping up to exit Afghanistan so he will convince his followers that this time he means it.

These moves are all actuated by the looming election and will change afterwards but the people will probably swallow the lies effortlessly. Romney has already painted himself into a corner as the war candidate and no amount of etch a sketching can change that especially if the media play a part in framing him properly.

The wild card is the economy. The Fed is doing its part in pumping up the money supply and the stock market is responding. They are massaging the employment numbers and trying to create a sense that the economy is recovering. This can all change however since they are no longer in control of the dollar. If the dollar goes then so does the economy. This will play into Ron Paul's strength both to gain the nomination and the Presidency since he is the only candidate who has predicted this to happen and who knows what to do about it. Everyone has recognised his expertise on the monetary question.

Some Ron Paul supporters believe that he should let the status quo win this one since then the establishment will be left holding the bag. In my view that is a very dangerous proposition. Any crisis can be used to usher in martial law and the stage has already been set for that. If there is a crisis it is best to use it to Dr. Paul's advantage and to navigate through it using methods that will work rather than all the nostrums that have brought about the crisis and have failed.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
