Ron Paul Losers

I expect vitriolic comments and the same old tiresome arguments for their dogged determination to champion their candidate who lost.

I like Ron Paul. He has the courage to say what he truly means. That is rare in politics these days. Those who pander to causes and voters have little to brag about except their lack of principles. I agree with Paul about the financial mess we’re in, the gold standard, and auditing the Fed. I do not agree with his foreign policy positions.

We live in a historic time in our country placing us on the threshold of choosing liberty or tyranny. There are no other choices and that is where the staunch Ron Paul supporters lose. We only have two real choices in November to make that choice. I’m in the same position. My candidate didn’t win.

Earlier today I saw the same old tired attitudes and excuses. One commenter on Facebook used Bill Maher, of all people, for his argument not to see “2016: Obama’s America.” He gave Maher’s explanation of why he wouldn’t see it. That’s your frame of reference? Bill Maher? He wouldn’t even avail himself of the long researched information presented chronologically in the movie concerning our present President’s background. Bill Maher was good enough for him. It makes you wonder how radical some Paul supporters have become.

What happened at the “good old boy” GOP convention was an outrage. The rules change and how it was handled was ghastly. Boehner and Sununu have lost all credibility with many Republicans. Mine was gone years ago. Many will leave the party because of it and even more will actively support and work for a NEW political party that upholds our Constitution as written by our Founding Fathers. I advocate a new party AFTER the election. The “chicken-neck” Republicans who have dined at the trough for generations in Washington D.C. must go or be replaced. The GOP will implode when conservatives and libertarians flee the party. Many are dissenting now. Read “Pavlov’s Republicans.”

The dilemma for the Ron Paul supporters is:

1. Do I continue to support Paul in this election knowing I can’t win and let tyranny reign?

2. Do I take my ball and go home, not vote at all, and support tyranny?

3. Do I stamp my feet, vote for Obama and give him power by fiat and support tyranny?

4. Do I use the facade of  “principles” as my excuse not to TRY and save this nation for our children, grandchildren and future generation? Or, at least give them the chance to fight for liberty should I fail at this juncture?

5. Have I REALLY thought about what it means to have Obama for another four years? With Obama’s track record would I even continue to have freedom to speak of Mr. Paul’s point of view?

6. OR, do I take a deep breath, hold my nose, vote for the only other choice, work to get Constitutionalists in the Senate and House, and work like my life depended on it, (if your senior citizen with Medicare it literally does) then hold the new administrations feet to the fire?

An implacable position makes Paul supporters losers. Why you ask? They will lose when they choose to stay at home or write in their candidate’s name making the CHANCE for freedom regained, lost. The man they so admire is an older gentleman. His life span, in all probability, is not much longer; much like mine. Their hero will no longer be with them. The idol they so admire will be gone. Now the rumor is the Paul supporters will try and suppress the vote for Romney. I can think of no better way to leave a legacy of denigration for a fine man than to demolish the chance at saving our children’s future. They will lose on all sides. They will lose him, their freedom and they will help to denigrate Mr. Paul’s legacy.

Yes, I agree with the Ron Paul supporters and Mark Levin that we have lost our freedoms. Will we have a chance, JUST THE CHANCE, to regain them under Barack Obama? The answer is a resounding NO! The recent detainment of a Facebook user, former marine Brandon Raub, without warrant or arrest, taken to a psychiatric facility until the Rutherford Institute stepped in as his legal counsel, is one indication that your freedoms are one electoral vote away from you.

The REAL questions is:

Do I give away the CHANCE to turn it around so I can continue to work for the things Congressman Ron Paul espoused or do I hand it to a despot willing to take even your freedom to voice Mr. Paul’s positions away? That’s the question. A CHANCE to redeem our freedom or NO chance at all and irrecuperable tyranny.

Like Mark Levin said, if the GOP doesn’t listen, we won’t have to do anything; it will implode. Levin’s audio is what changed my mind.

That’s right. Surprise, surprise I held the same position, however, the logic with which Mr. Levin states his position turned me 180 degrees. I beg good citizens who support Ron Paul not to give up the CHANCE.

TIME TO APPLY KING SOLOMON’S WISDOM – 1Kings 3:16-28

One of our most well known Biblical stories is that of King Solomon’s judgement on the two women who both claimed to be the real mother of one child. The women lived in the same house and both had baby sons but one had accidentally suffocated her own son while sleeping and then switched the two boys claiming the living child was hers.

After hearing the women present their cases as to who was indeed the mother he applied a strategy to test a mother’s love by threatening to split the baby in half, offering one half to each woman. Upon hearing this terrible verdict, the boy’s true mother cried out, “Please, My Lord, give her the live child—do not kill him!” However, the false mother exclaimed, “It shall be neither mine nor yours—divide it!” It was at that moment that King Solomon was certain who the real mother was. The true mother’s instincts were to protect her child at any cost, even to giving up her son.

I and my fellow Patriots are equally as prepared to give the oval office to the “other” candidate rather than watch our beloved country be split in two and die. We don’t want two halves of a dead country – we want one whole and healthy country because we love her. The Pretenders’ to Patriotism will allow the country to be divided and will even go so far as to demand it be divided. These are not real Patriots.

If we apply this wise King’s wisdom to determine who the real Patriots are in this country we will have an easy task. Patriots will not take a pass on this November election nor will they write-in their personal choice.  The Patriots will show up at the polls and vote for the nominee – not our personal choice who has no chance of winning. We will do this to save the life of our country, to keep her whole.

What prevents the Pretenders’ from seeing the true picture is their willful insistence to ignore a reality that does not coincide with their will. Like the willful, jealous woman in King Solomon’s time they only pretend to be the real Patriots, they insist that it is better to split the country so no one wins and allow the country to die.  They will bring calamity upon themselves, the rest of the country and indeed the world without any regard to the end result.

Whatever it takes to save this Republic the true Patriots’ will do. Likewise, the Patriotic candidates will step aside and rally for the nominee. They will call on their supporters to do the same especially when it is apparent that without that unification they put their country, which they claim to love, in grave peril.

Let us hope that these citizens will, in the end, make the right decision, the Patriotic decision, the wise decision. In this way we will know who the real Patriots are and who are just pretenders who offer only a false claim.

Jewish interpretation

According to the Midrash, the two women were sisters-in-law, both of whom had borne sons, and whose husbands had died. The baby was actually the lying woman’s nephew. Therefore, when Solomon suggested that the infant be split in half, the lying woman, jealous of her nephew and sister-in-law, agreed. Thus was Solomon able to know who the real mother was.

PAVLOV’S REPUBLICANS

Pavlov's DogI expect informed reasonable responses from those who call themselves Republicans. I don’t find it amusing that the Democrats blow off their own lack of morality and the Republicans can’t figure out a way to use that to their own advantage.

Ivan Pavlov’s research discovered that dogs’ not only salivated at the sight and smell of food, but that the salivating reflex was a learned response not an automatic physiological process. Between the years 1997 and 2000, more than 220 articles appearing in scientific journals cited Pavlov’s early research on classical conditioning. Perhaps our Pavlov Republicans should read some of this research.

The dogs’ in Pavlov’s experiments quickly associated the scientists’ white lab coats with food. In a short time just the sight of a white lab coat produced the learned response.

Pavlov then tested the steady tick, tick of the  metronome followed up with food. It wasn’t long before the dogs began salivating at the neutral stimulus of the steady tick of the metronome provoking the conditioned response of salivation. The key point being that the response was conditioned, or learned. This type of behavioral psychology is what Cloward & Piven, Saul Alinsky and every Communist dictator has applied to manipulate human beings throughout history. It’s clear the Democrats learned these techniques well.

Our Pavlov Republicans’ have not only been well trained but have shown an amazing lack of cognitive abilities needed to defend themselves against it. They have become blinded with the need to be accepted by the opposition and the media until the very thought of that acceptance starts them salivating. I wonder if the Pavlov Republicans’ can change these learned responses in time to save the Republic. I wonder too if they still have the mental ability to even recognize that they behave like Pavlov’s dogs.

When the Democrats’ go into attack mode it’s like the tick, tick of the metronome which the conditioned GOP instantly react to. Let one sensible conservative voice speak out and the GOP loyals will race down the halls and head for the waiting microphones. “Glory be!! a social conservative has spoken”. “Please forgive us for not tackling this person to the ground before they could open their mouth”, (conditioned response). “They do not speak for our Party” then begins the salivating in anticipation of being re-accepted.

If the Pavlov Republicans’ could recognize their conditioned responses then the Democrats would have to live with their usual buffoonish statements and be forced to defend their failed policies. But no, can’t have that. The Pavlov Republicans’ will save the opposition from themselves every time. Many of these Pavlov-trained enablers are on committees overseeing our military. Need I say more on that subject?

Heaven help the conservative Republicans from the guilt laden, finger-wagging GOP. How many conservative members have felt the sting of the Pavlov Republicans once they see those white lab coats? How can we trust in leaders who only react according to their conditioning?

That dogs can be conditioned/trained in such a way is not shocking however, that men and women in control of government seem to be conditioned in this way is shocking and sad.  At the very least the dogs’ in Pavlov’s experiments received a satisfying result  from their conditioning, which is why it worked so well. So, it would seem that the GOP is satisfied with the results of their conditioning.  Acceptance by the liberal elite and their media complex is the most satisfying treat in the world for this group of Republicans.

It doesn’t matter that these actions leave all thinking Americans with a bad taste in their mouths.  To recognize that reality they would have to be smarter than the family dog and so far the Pavlov Republicans have not shown any indication that they are mentally superior in that area.

If our Republic stands a chance to return to our founding principles we simply cannot have our government filled with Pavlov’s dogs with an (R) after their name. Vote and vote wisely. Discern. Live free, think free and behave free. It’s we free thinking Americans who built this country and it’s the same free thinking Americans who will keep her. Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address says it beautifully. This is OUR country and our government.

The Gettysburg Address: http://showcase.netins.net/web/creative/lincoln/speeches/gettysburg.htm

Our Republic needs a re-founding. We are, at this moment, living through a turning point in America’s history. We are the people future historians will write about, the people our descendants will read about. What story will the historians document? Our victory over tyranny, as our forefathers’ secured, or tyranny victorious over freedom?

I, ME and MYSELF

Since the formal announcement on August 11, 2012 of Mitt Romney’s choice for VP, Paul Ryan, the I, Me & Myself crowd has been out in full, uncontrollable force. Unable to control their self-importance they have come out into, what I see as, three classifications;

  1. The clearly left leaning socialist worshipers (wanting only to do what they do best, mock),
  2. The self-professed Christians (who are practicing cafeteria faith),
  3. The heretofore rational thinkers (who are rational until they can’t be rational anymore).

The first group is no surprise, in terms of their rhetoric, however the force with which they hit the social sites as soon as Paul Ryan’s name was confirmed was entirely, uncontrollably, chaotic even for these terminal blatherers.

The second group have discarded the most important tenant of faith by insisting that their understanding is superior to God’s grasp of any given situation.  As a Christian myself I know this is something that must be resisted daily if we are to truly put our trust in God. Only practicing that part of our faith will enable us to experience the manifestation of peace in our hearts.

The third group has blown their cover of rationality by throwing rationale out the window with their inability to remain rational when facing challenges to their own preconceived conclusions.

All these groups have taken to the social sites to espouse how unnerved they are not only with the Ryan choice, by a candidate they’re not fond of to begin with, but with the fact that their favorite candidate is now hopelessly off their wish list. For the Sunshine Patriots the Republican Convention is not going to be their “I told you so” moment when their candidate of choice becomes the nominee defying all odds.  For the progressives’ it’s clear their false god is not easily sailing into a second term.

Well, too bad and so sad, for all three groups, but facts are facts and none of these groups has shown even the slightest comprehension of reality vs wishful thinking.  The simple explanation for this is their inability to get out of their own way. This is expected from the left but certainly not from those who profess they are Christians, even in the face of adversity, or those who profess a willingness to embrace rational thought no matter the events.

The sorry state of these people would be of little concern but for the importance of this election season. When I read comments that show an inability or unwillingness to put the country before I, Me & Myself then I cringe at the knowledge that this oversimplified thought, the self-centeredness, the immaturity that gave us Obama to begin with is still alive and thriving.

Regardless of the facts, regardless of the hardships, regardless of the enemy at the gate, these people are still hopelessly ensnared in the worship of I, Me & Myself. Will those who call themselves Christians begin to practice what they preach?  Will those who practiced rational thought come back to their senses?

Unless the second and third groups do regain a semblance of self-control, rather than self-absorption, they will be the reason we will either lose this election to the enemy or it will be so close the outcome will be delayed and fraud will gain a foothold on the election results. We will witness civil unrest & lawlessness.  What a shame if the very things we have warned each other about do occur because of these infantile reactions.

Holding onto one’s self-centered set of principals and childish misery because of the choices we have ignores the big picture and it’s suicide. Those who refuse to vote for the Republican nominee out of their sense of moral superiority are condoning abortion, treason, communism, freedom to worship and the entire Bill of Rights. Never mind the destruction of our laws, as in the U.S. Constitution, along with abandoning our brave military men and women. This is neither rational nor Christian.

This is what sowing the seeds of I, Me & Myself  will yield for the self-worshipers. Unfortunately, the rest of America will also have to reap what they sow. I have no illusions that the first group are not worth giving much thought to but, the second & third groups do have hope providing they can get out of their own way in time for the all important November 2012 elections. This is the election of a lifetime and, yes, it’s more important than our petty preoccupations and self-serving human natures.

I’d like to add the link to an audio of Mark Levin who is much better at articulating the seriousness of this election and the utter futility of fighting the facts. We either continue our involvement as citizens of this Republic, with the tools we have, or we give up and hand it over to those who desire only her demise.
