listening to "Mass Mind".
And just like your own mind, you may go off on tangents for a very long time. Your mind explores new ideas, movies, books, suggestions and so forth, and only once in a while goes back to its main concern, focus and drive.
Consider it a healthy sign of a healthy new movement.
As far as WHO and HOW we should vote, the answer is very clear to us. Vote 3rd Party. End of Story.
I will probably hold my nose and vote for Barr, even though as I have written here a DP he is NO libertarian at all. Arizona is a McCain state, so the more votes Barr gets the more it sends a message that we want Small Government.
A vote for the Green party just registers your concern for the Environment.
A vote for Nader is a vote FOR government, specifically one that has "government cop on the Corporate beat" as Nader calls for it.
Then there is the Constitution Party (not on AZ ballot) which would be a vote for the Constitution except they want to change it in a Christian direction. So A vote for Baldwin sends a Christian message too, thus left out is the libertarian message of Separation of Church and State as a GOOD THING. Take a look at the platform of the Constitutional party vs the Libertarian Platform, and you will see what I mean.
So we have a PROTEST VOTE. We vote 3rd party. We vote Libertarian and we send the Revolution's message. Its that simple, despite the irritating failings of Barr.
In the meantime Kevin, please read these books and lets talk about them in threads:
The first 3 I am sure Ron Paul has read & even endorsed,
1) "Libertarianism in One Lesson", written by former LP candidate in 1984, David Berglund. Its a fast read, just 100 or so pages. What is amazing is the numbers compared to today's numbers.
2) "Economics in One Lesson", written by Henry Hazlett. I have heard Dr. Paul quote him several times and reference his lessons in his own writings.
3) "Healing Our World in an Age of Aggression" by Dr. Mary Ruwart. Dr. Paul has personally endorsed this book on the back cover as a must read.
4) "The Global Brain" by Howard Bloom -- Here is a quote, "Networking has been a key to evolution since this universe first flared into existence..." This book is my personal favorite. Find it here at Amazon : http://www.amazon.com/Global-Brain-Evolution-Mass-Century/dp...
