Ron Paul can revitalize our economy, five ways how. Part 1.

ABC, CBS, MSNBC, Fox News, and newspapers throughout our country are hoodwinking us about our economy. In their short sighted endeavors to elect yes-men candidates to high political office, the major news outlets have sold the American people into a brave new slavery. The media black outs seem to be working, so it is up to the internet to inform America about how we are on a knife’s edge, tottering over the abyss.

In earlier posts, I established that Ron Paul was our best bet for restoring our Constitution.

https://noxforchristmas.wordpress.com/2012/01/10/ron-paul-vs-the-world-your-own-personal-constitution/

Now I’m dealing with the number one concern in American’s minds for the current presidential election, the economy. I’ve established that we’ve spent the last seventy years digging our own grave’s, economically speaking.

https://noxforchristmas.wordpress.com/2012/01/15/yes-to-ron-paul/

And then I spent several posts demonstrating the flawed economic thinking of the other candidates. Besides my blogs, I’ve also found that gunnyg@wordpress.com, and trutherator@wordpress.com provide insights into the various candidate’s perspectives.

So now its time to tell you five ways how Ron Paul can revitalize our economy.

1. He was informed enough to predict many of the current problems in our economy.

There are several videos that document how Ron Paul predicted, with uncanny accuracy, the pressing problems we find ourselves facing.

Ron Paul on the Economy

Ron Paul’s 2002 Predictions Come True

Now, you have to ask yourself, were any of the other candidates making these predictions a decade ago? If you Google “Obama predicts housing collapse” you get…..videos about Ron Paul predicting the housing collapse.  The same is true of all the other candidates. You can find no evidence of them making such predictions because they simply didn’t. All of them were taken by surprise. All of them except Ron Paul. So, what does he know that we don’t?

2. He knows that we’ve got to dramatically cut spending now.

It is fairly well known that Ron Paul is promising to cut a trillion (!) dollars from the budget….in his first year in office. He plans on cutting his own salary by roughly 90%!

http://content.usatoday.com/communities/onpolitics/post/2011/10/ron-paul-spending-cuts-/1

Compare this to the other candidates, who will either have cuts in the billions, or not cut spending at all….

Its hard to find good information on Obama’s budget (so much for transparency), but the best estimates say he will also cut a trillion….over ten years time…..

http://www.npr.org/2011/02/13/133735688/Previewing-Obamas-Budget-Cuts

Its been a little difficult for me to find solid figures for the other candidates. I think that Santorum has the most solid information on him, but the cuts still seem substantially lower than Ron Paul’s…or Obama’s, for that matter….

http://www.businessweek.com/news/2012-01-24/santorum-tax-cuts-boost-deficit-by-1-3-trillion-study-says.html

And if you’ve been following this blog (or even just following the news….) then you understand that we are trillions in debt, and our economy won’t support that kind of debt for much longer.

And just what has the government been spending its money on? Basically, Big Brother has spent trillions of your dollars keeping you reigned in….

3. The government has become Juggernaut. Its too big, and has its hand in too many cookie jars.

Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves- Ronald Reagan

I hope our wisdom will grow with our power, and teach us, that the less we use our power the greater it will be- Thomas Jefferson

I’m afraid that this one seems self evident to me, but I realize I must back it up a little bit, for those that are fans of big government.

The government has been growing at an alarming rate since W. W. I. The Great Wars required a gargantuan national effort, and only the government was big enough to pull it off. But, while things did scale back after the Wars, they were never scaled back to prewar conditions. And the government, having gotten a taste of power, soon imbibed more and more of that sweet wine. And now Washington is drunk with Bacchanalian intensity.

And they haven’t backed off the sauce since Obama took over. In the last ten years, government jobs have increased ten percent, private sector jobs, one percent. Private sector salaries have stagnated, while the government has given itself fat bonuses. The average private sector salary is $61,000 per year. The average government salary…..hold on to your wallets….is $123, 000. I knew I should have taken a government job…..

http://governmentgonewild.org/

And the regulations we live under are insane! The government has simply become too intrusive in our lives.

This is Ron Paul’s answer to this problem:

Well, it’s getting late. I’ll share the last two reasons in a later post.

The Republican race is on and here comes the media to lead the charge for Romney

Posted On January 27, 2012

Comments Dropped leave a response

Mitt Romney was the front runner in this little race, until recently, when Newt Gingrich took the surprise win in South Carolina.

Right now, I’m watching the debate, and Ron Paul and Santorum have demonstrated, to me, why we don’t want either Romney, or Newt.

Both of them stood for some form of state mandated health care. Romneycare was the blueprint for Obamacare. And yet, here is Romney, trying to sell himself as a conservative. I think its interesting that Newt just gave kudos to Ron Paul for diagnosing the intrenched institutional biases that are destroying our country.

I’m afraid that I’ve been suffering a little despondency lately. The media ignores Ron Paul with perfect impunity, and I’m afraid that the American people, like sheep, will go astray.

I promised a post documenting the wrong thinking of the other candidates. So, here we go.

1. Romney is just the same progressive-establishment figure that we’ve been handed for the last forty years.

Let’s see who our nominees have been. Nixon: progressive-establishment figure. Ford: progressive-establishment figure. Reagan: I’ll let you make up your own mind. Some lump him in with the others, I don’t. George H. W. Bush: progressive-establishment figure. Bob Dole: progressive establishment figure. George W. Bush: I thought he was different in his first term. But he turned out to be a progressive establishment figure. John McCain: progressive-establishment figure. And he has endorsed….

Drum roll please……

Surprise!!!!! McCain endorses Mitt Romney! I’ll admit that Romney has got “the look.” You imagine a President, and he looks like Romney. You can imagine him on the golf coarse with Rush Limbaugh and Donald Trump, having conversations about what investments are going well, and what special interest groups should get donations of Trump ties and Two if by Tea!

But I’m afraid that was why the Tea Party was established. (It does still exist, doesn’t it…..I mean, didn’t one of their founders endorse someone…..hm….wonder who it was…..

2. Romneycare was the blueprint for Obamacare

http://thenewamerican.com/usnews/health-care/9383-investigation-confirms-romneycare-was-the-blueprint-for-obamacare

In effect, a vote for Romney might as well be a vote for Obama. Their both part of the inner elite.

http://www.parkromney.com/?view=mittromney&sid=1312711629

If you go to that site, maybe you’ll find something, maybe you won’t. The elitists are pretty good at covering their tracks.

Ok. I’ve had enough of Romney. I’m not voting for him, and that is that. You can make up your own mind.

That leaves us with three candidates, since the others have all dropped out (though, interestingly, some of them are still on the Oklahoma ballot….)

We’ve basically got a choice between Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Ron Paul. If you’ve read my posts so far, you know that I’m biased, and you already know who I’m supporting. But Newt or Rick are, in my mind, at least superior choices to Obama and Romney.

Having said that, I’m not real sure I can vote for either of them, either. I’ve got to go to bed now. The alarm will go off so early in the morning. But I’ll try to give a post about Newt and/or Santorum tomorrow.

Santorum: illusions and lies of the Republican elite

The American voter is asking what kind of leader do we want at the helm of our vessel. Would we prefer a president that watches football, or one that is studying economic textbooks?

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/video/gop-candidates-debate-saturday-night-plans-15315110

Now, I have nothing against football, but Ron Paul and John Huntsman were really the only ones that gave good answers to this question. If your choosing to be a statesman, then you have to be willing to sacrifice a few of the pleasures that the rest of us take for granted. You have to get off the golf coarse once in a while, and dig into the fray. Winners differ from losers in that winners are willing to do the things that losers simply won’t do.

Santorum claims to be the only Republican candidate with foreign policy experience. This is inaccurate. In the same video, he lies….well, at least, he states an inaccuracy about fellow candidate Ron Paul.

Rick Santorum preaching from the bar on Sunday, imitates then lies about Ron Paul

I’m not exactly sure what to make of this video. I’m not even remotely pro-Iran. But then, more and more, I’ve been questioning a lot of my own beliefs and suppositions. About the only thing I’m still clinging to is a belief in God, and a belief in Christ. So I’ll just post this video, and you can make up your own mind, if it supports my point, or if I’m just succumbing to Muslim propaganda…..

Dismantling Rick Santorum’s lies about Iran, must watch for every voter (Republican or Democratic!

In this next video, Santorum is on the radio program, The Sean Hannity Show. He makes some claims that I believe to be false. People keep telling me that Ron Paul is a nut job that believes that 9/11 was an inside, government conspiracy. Maybe I’m just looking in the wrong places, but I can find nothing to substantiate such an allegation.

“Ron Paul said 9/11 was an inside job on his website”-Rick Santorum to Sean Hannity

People say that Ron Paul is a crazy old coot with dangerous foreign policy ideas. But here, he demonstrates that he is vastly more educated about the subject than Santorum.

Ron Paul destroys Rick Santorum on Iran during Ames Iowa debate! Go Ron Go!

Ron Paul has a campaign add out that makes some pretty serious claims against Santorum. I think I’ll spend a little time on these claims. Who know, maybe I’ll trip up my own candidate in a falsehood…..

Illuminati puppet (personal sidenote from Duncan….the title is a little grandiose…but any title with “illuminati” in it is just so much more exciting than less sinister titles……) Rick Santorum: a record of betrayal and lies 2012 vote Ron Paul

Now, lets see what ol’ Duncan can make of these allegations…..

According to ABC news, it is technically not true that Santorum was a lobbyist. But he was essentially an influence peddler, telling big businesses, interestingly enough, big medical corporations, how to steer their businesses into prosperity via legislation. I find it interesting that this is happening for only a couple of years before Obama, and during the presidency. I don’t know a thing, but has anyone done any research on Universal Health, Inc? Did they have any influence on the current Obamacare laws….

http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/rick-santorum-stealth-lobbyist/story?id=15298204#.TyIdnSOJ6Uc

If I were a true journalist, I would pursue that with my own investigation. But I am merely a humble blogger who works way too hard in a retail capacity. The average reader of blogs will only tolerate another 109 words out of me.

CNN confirms the Ron Paul allegation that Santorum claimed to want a balanced budget amendment, but then hypocritically voted five times to raise the debt ceiling.

http://www.cnn.com/2012/01/08/politics/truth-squad-santorum-debt/index.html

Ron Paul claims that Santorum voted against the right to work act. Santorum admitted that in the debate, and tried to defend his position. This site confirms that, and I have the video.

http://wetheconservatives.com/national-right-to-work-comments-on-rick-santorum%E2%80%99s-record/

http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/rick-santorum-stealth-lobbyist/story?id=15298204#.TyIdnSOJ6Uc

I’m not going to bother with the allegation that Santorum is “one of the most corrupt politicians in Washington.” Frankly, I don’t know how I could verify that. The video provides sources for its quotes. I suppose we could all look those all up for ourselves.

I think I’ll leave you with a few videos. My wife wants all of you to know, that Ron Paul may not be perfect, but he is a blessing to our nation. He is fighting the good fight. And she wants to dedicate the last video to him.

 

Newt Gingrich spars with Romney, but the real loser is the American people

Republican candidate polls show a disturbing trend. You pit every candidate against Obama today, and he loses. Yet, he has a 48% of Americans disapproval rating. And he loses against a “generic” Republican. What is going on?

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/president_obama_vs_republican_candidates.html

In earlier posts, I established why I couldn’t vote for Obama or Romney. I’ve promised to discuss Gingrich and Santorum. I do think that each of these is an improvement. They are both less progressive than Romney or Obama. But they are still progressives.

1. Gingrich is tough, but is he conservative, or just another Washington politician?

I don’t think I’ll ever forget the excitement of the nineties, and the Contract with America.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contract_with_America

You see, I had only been a conservative myself for three years. As a kid, I’d loved Reagan. My dad was very disillusioned with Carter, and, being himself a tough guy, he loved Reagan’s tough talk about Iran and Russia. He really seemed to hope that Reagan would nuke Iran. And as a nine year old, I largely agreed with him. It was around this time that I began to follow politics.

It was also around this time that I fell in love with rhetoric. Not the modern idea of rhetoric: you know, basically lying with big words. I mean rhetoric in the classical tradition.

For, love him or hate him, Reagan was definitely the greatest rhetorician of my life time. He had a way of weaving a spell with his words. Its one of the reasons why he was always being compared (unjustly) to Hitler.

The very best of Ronald Reagan, pts. 1, 2

I’ll admit it….I’d really rather be writing on the greatness of Reagan than on the pettiness of the current Republican political spectrum.

But I promised I’d talk about Newt and Santorum, and that is exactly what I’m going to do.

So, the nineties, the Contract with America, and Newt Gingrich. He seemed tough, he had all that beautiful silver hair, and the liberal media hated him. So, for a while, a Reaganesque shadow fell on him. But that shadow has palled and turned into something that looks more like business as usual. Like the Washington insider Romney accused him of being (which is very ironic coming from him. I find more evidence of Romney in our shadow government than Newt).

I wasn’t so worried about the ethics stuff from the nineties. Most of the allegations seemed all trumped up to me. And I know enough about people to know that even a good man can be the victim of a witch hunt.

But what does worry me is his hand holding with Nancy Pelosi while the two of them advertise for cap-and-trade, which was a terrible Al Gore idea that was based on bad economics and unfounded global warming “science.”

Why Newt Gingrich is unfit to be president

I guess what I’m trying to say is that he seems to talk tough in a debate where he thinks he can impress us, but he’s willing to go on a commercial with one of the worst of the enemy, and act as if we agree on the issue. Then he turns around and tells us we should have a debate about it, and that is what the commercial is about. But it doesn’t sound like a debate to me. Watch it again. He admits that this is an issue that he agrees with Nancy Pelosi on.

He has no credibility with me.

Well, the family is home, and they come first. I’ll post about Santorum later (if he’s still in the race).

Ron Paul, Abraham Lincoln of the twentyfirst century

The Republican race is now down to the final four. Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, and, to the chagrin of the Republican elite, Ron Paul. That pesky Paul just simply doesn’t know when he’s not wanted. Why won’t he just go away…..?

My title probably has a lot of you scratching your heads. Ron Paul is this nutty old man with the very unpolished mannerisms. He’s absolutely not what the establishment tells you is presidential. You just can’t imagine him on the golf coarse with Donald Trump. You can’t picture him as a great president for troubled times. He’s humble, unassuming, and honest. What we really need is the polish of Romney, the fight of Newt, the moral clarion call of Santorum.

How could I possibly compare him to Abraham Lincoln?

I think its very interesting that everyone keeps asking if he’s going to run as a third party candidate. When the Republican party first started, it was a third party. Back then, it was Democrats and Whigs. The Republicans were an upstart third party, trying to challenge the Washington elite on its narrow minded views on, and its compromise on, slavery.

You see, the Washington insiders were tearing this country apart. They had a dynamic where the nation was almost perfectly polarized, yet there was eternal compromise in order to keep the power elite in power. Lincoln came on the scene as a hay seed lawyer that had failed at nearly everything in his life.

http://des.emory.edu/mfp/efficacynotgiveup.html

I give this site as the source of the information I’m about to share, and in the hopes that maybe some folks will visit it and be inspired.

Lincoln was a failure in the military. He was a failure at business. He lost multiple elections, the senatorial election of 1854, the vice-presidency of 1856, and the senatorial election of 1858. He was very much a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief. “He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised….”

Lincoln has come to be honored, but in his day, he was considered a country lout who should have stayed in his log cabin and kept chopping wood. The South seceded as much because they hated him as because they feared the abolition of slavery. The first years of the war his officers largely ignored him or insulted him, even though he made every effort to listen to them, and supported the troops as well as his inexperience could allow.

We honor him now, but in his life, Lincoln was thought of as a joke. He wasn’t taken seriously until very near the end of the Civil War.

Ron Paul is obviously looked down on by the media elite on both sides of the aisle. I’ve documented it. Others with more skill and professionalism have documented it. If Washington had its way, he would have stayed home in Texas and kept delivering babies. He’s nowhere near the failure that Lincoln was, but he has run multiple times for President, and has never been allowed to get close by the party apparatchiks. We also live in very polarized times when principles are compromised for the base purpose of idolizing power. The military respects Ron Paul, but the news-media outlets do not. And, like Lincoln, Ron Paul is radically principled, and yet willing to respect the considerations of opposing values.

Lincoln was elected largely by accident. Let’s pray that such a providential accident happens again.

Winston Churchill failed 6th grade. His strategies for World War I were rejected. He intended to cut up through Africa, meet the Italians (who were allies in that war) and cut up underneath Germany. The flag officers thought it was stupid. Its exactly the path Patton took in the Second World War to defeat the Axis. Churchill lost every major election until he was chosen Prime Minister at 62. And when Britain was done with him, they cast him away like an empty pop can. Obama recently returned the bust of Churchill to Britain. The man was a failure, like Lincoln. But they were failures that saved our world, and succeeded in the struggle to make men free. They were Christ-like figures.

And, win or lose, I’d put Ron Paul, right along side them.

 

Ship grounding educates America about our government. Or, if ya don’t wanna lead, don’t be the captain!!!!

The captain of luxury cruise ship Costa Concordia is being blamed for running his ship aground while showing off to a twenty five year old honey. Its reported that he abandoned his ship to founder helplessly, and then failed to coordinate any efforts at saving the passengers and crew for which he was responsible. I apologize for the swearing that’s on this video, but I think I’ll show it in order to make a point. If swearing offends you, I’ll tell you a little about what is said later. But I think the video will make my point better than I will.

So, the captain is ordered by the authorities to board the broken husk of the ship he was accountable for…..and, for a solid hour, he won’t do it! He’s more concerned with himself than he is for the people he is honor bound to protect. Everyone compares it to the Titanic….but that captain went down with his ship.

His excuse is that he tripped, fell into the life boat, and then….well, I guess he was just such an incompetent sailor, that he just couldn’t get the life boat to get him back to the ship. Truly a brother of the Admiral Lord Nelson there!!!! (Kirk would have kicked his keister!!!)

But seriously, I think that this story is a parable for the age. The People at the Top, in Washington, in board rooms across the world, and, evidently, in navigation rooms, have all abandoned the ideals of honor and duty. None of them believe in the Mandate of Heaven. The Chinese and Japanese believed that the Emperor ruled by the Mandate of Heaven. If the Emperor loved his people and served their interests, then Heaven backed him. If he did not….

A story goes that an Emperor was asked about the Mandate of Heaven from his son, the presumed heir to the throne. The boy felt that if Heaven was on his side, then he could do whatever he wanted. The Emperor, his father, replied, “The Mandate of Heaven is like a stately ship floating on the waters of the China Sea. The sea can bear you up and take you on pleasant journeys where you want to go. Or, the sea can smash you like a twig, sink your hopes, and drown you beneath the angry waves.”

The son asked, “Who is in control then, the sea, or the captain that pilots the vessel?”

The father smiled and said, “The sea and its gods are in control. You must learn to pilot your vessel, so that you may have the best hope of harmony with the sea. He who is a lazy captain does not have the Mandate of Heaven.”

I’ve gone a long road here to make a simple point, but I think the world needs to hear it. Too many “leaders” bully their way through life, leaning on their power and position to get what they want. But their not truly leaders. They have no courage, no conviction. No bravery. And they care only for themselves.

So, if you’ve followed this blog, you may be asking yourself (and the days go by…..same as it ever was….same as it ever was….same as it ever was…..) “Duncan has been ranting and raving about Ron Paul! What has all this got to do with Ron Paul!”

It’s a simple question every American voter should be asking him/herself. What kind of leader do I want at the helm of our nation? Do we want business as usual, when our so called leaders (to those who know me best, think Khurgan Theme here….) are running the ship of state so perilously and so obviously close to the rocks of Economic Armageddon?

I think we want someone who is courageous, someone who thinks more of us than of himself, and someone who “respects the sea” as he tries to navigate.

Yes, I could be mistaken. But at this hour, I think that person is Ron Paul. It takes guts to go so far against the Washington elite for so long. He can’t be doing it solely for himself. If her were working for selfish motives, he would have caved long ago, and bought into the party line! And I’ll end this with three videos that, I think, speak for themselves.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’re not even smart enough to pick a nominee…..but the Republican elite and media have us covered…..

Conservative media outlets have conspired to convince us that Ron Paul is a nut-job. If you listen to them, he’ll just let the country be bombed right and left, and Jihadists will laugh at our steaming corpses while Ron Paul keeps preaching about respecting other countries. If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times. “I can support anyone over Obama…..except Ron Paul…..”

That is, in fact, one of the reasons why I started looking into this guy. If all of my heroes, Limbaugh, Hannity, Boortz, even Glenn Beck…..there must be something truly dangerous about this guy.

There’s a little Doc Savage there….I don’t agree that Rush Limbaugh is a talentless hack…..but I fear I’m more on the side of Savage, at the moment, then El Rushbo.

Here, we hear Sean Hannity, (who, until six months ago, was my favorite news/media mogul), dismissing RP four years ago as “not going anywhere.” Is it possible that we might have avoided four years of Obama if my own heroes had simply been a little more open minded…..?

Again, Hannity, four years ago. I’ve been observing, and trying to document, how enormously well RP does in on-line polling. Yet the media rarely reports it, almost never believes it…..and somehow, with all these people supporting him in a democracy….he still keeps losing! I know I sound like a conspiracy theorist….but something is going on that I, for one, simply don’t understand and cannot explain. And it is fairly well documented (heck, even just my little blog establishes it) that, in spite of El Rushbo’s opinion to the contrary, the media does everything it can to ignore Ron Paul!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3axiv2hm4rk

At the end, Hannity tells Paul that he asks controversial questions of all the candidates. And that is true. But, in all my years of listening, he has never been so disrespectful of a candidate. And I’ve never seen him (till here) get so dismissive and confrontational with someone that so nearly agrees with Hannity’s own positions. I also think its interesting that RP remembers the anniversary of the Tea Party Movement….Hannity doesn’t……

Then there was Glenn Beck. He’s another one of my heroes. But I really don’t know what to make of his reactions to RP. The first video I’m going to put up may seem to be damning to my point. And in fact, it may be. I am but a humble blogger trapped in a dead end retail job. But I’m going to include it 1) because the truth is more important than my opinions, 2) because I think it will actually help me make my point. But you’ll have to bear with me, and be patient (I know, asking someone on the internet to be patient is like asking a customer in my industry to be kind and respectful….)

Now, if you’ve watched that, I have three things to say to it.

1. Ron Paul doesn’t “tell the truth” about the 9/11 conspiracy theories because…..drum roll please……just like he told the lady…..he has bigger fish to fry!!!

I hope you can understand this point. He’s being accosted by a crazy conspiracy theorist and he just simply doesn’t want to waste his time on her lunacy! Duh! Rather like, if a customer approaches me in my store asking me about the Elvis clones that are telling him/her to pelt fellow customers with feces….I’m gonna find a way to be busy elsewhere, with something else!

2. If Ron Paul and George Soros are working in cahoots together, then why is Soros making false accusations against Ron Paul!!!???

3. If Ron Paul is working with the “dark side,” then how do you explain this video….also from Glen Beck?

I love ya GB! I’ve learned a ton of things from you. And I know you’ll probably never read this, but how can you say, “This man works with Barney Frank….and George Soros….but he’s also head and shoulders more like our founding father’s than anyone else running. And you tell us that such a fiend is less progressive than Newt Gingrich (but then, maybe ol’ Newt is in bed with Soros and Frank, too….I’ll do a little digging on that). Sorry man! Doesn’t make sense (unless your gonna tell me these videos were doctored, like Oprah’s “endorsement” of Ron Paul).

I’ve gotten some more videos, and they’ll make my point better than my paltry words can.

We’re not smart enough to choose a President….let the media do the thinking for us!!!!!

Republican candidates Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Rick Perry are all debating tonight on Fox News for South Carolina. It is beginning as I write. It is, in fact, very distracting to write to the noise of it. John Huntsman has dropped out of the race. Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The debate is now over. The twitter poll shows extremely positive for Ron Paul. And extremely negative for Romney. And pretty dang positive for Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich. Anyway, my wife had me tweet the moderator, where I put in a shameless plug for this blog.

She could report on it, and make me rich and famous….or she could just tell her computer that I’m a spammer, and I’ll end up in cyberspace limbo…..Sounds like my whole life in a nutshell.

Ok……its way too late for me, but I actually do like this blogging business, so I’m gonna try to to finish this post before I  to bed and face my wonderful retail job again.

So I promised in my last post to talk about the economic superiority of Ron Paul. I established that our nation is spending its way into bankruptcy, and promised to demonstrate the flawed thinking of the other candidates. (This may actually take more than one post…..hmmmmm). Permalink: https://noxforchristmas.wordpress.com/2012/01/15/yes-to-ron-paul/

Deep breathe…..lets begin. The most obvious candidate to begin with is Obama. Of them all, he is the worst. I would take Paul, Romney, Gingrich….any of them, over Obama.

1. Obama’s flawed Marxist philosophy.

Several conservatives have gone after Obama. And many of them have done an excellent job of documenting his radical derailing of capitalism in our country. I think that two of the best are Michael Savage, and Glenn Beck.

Before I found Michael Savage, I really didn’t think that Obama was the dangerous. Obama successfully fooled us all into thinking that he was simply and merely a Democrat. Maybe he was more Keynesian than I, but he wasn’t dangerous. People told me he was a racist and a Marxist, and I simply thought that they were deluded. Maybe they had listened too much to talk radio.

But Michael Savage made those same claims, only he backed up his claims with passion and with verifiable facts. So lets list a few from his book, Trickle Up Poverty:

1. Anyone remember Reverend Wright? I don’t want to get too deep into religion here, but this was the church Obama attended for a long time. I won’t rehash his GD America comments. But I can quote this:

My (Reverend Wright’s) work with liberation theology, with Latin American theologians, with the…Cuban Council of Churches taught me …the importance of x and the Marxist analysis of the social realities of the vulnerable and the oppressed who were trying desperately to break free of the political economic undergirded by this country that were choking them and cutting off any hope of a possible future where all of the people would benefit.

That’s right, his pastor was Marxist. And we know that he studied from and sought out Marxist professors! So I won’t believe (you can if you want to) that he isn’t at least very strongly influenced by Marxist ideas.

2. Some quotes from BO’s cabinet:

Manufacturing Czar Ron Bloom: We know that the free market is nonsense. We know that the whole point is to game the system. We kinda agree with Mao Zedong that power comes largely from the barrel of a gun.

Sidenote: Where in the Constitution does it mention a manufacturing czar….? Or, for that matter, a….

Pay Czar Kenneth Feinberg: Here’s what I’ve said publicly in my pay determination-nobody should receive more than a base cash salary of $500,000 maximum.

Where does the Constitution say that they can decide how much we make….?

And I think I’ll end this post with a video of Glenn Becks, with some commentary thereon from yours truly.

So if you watched Glenn Beck’s rant, you know that you absolutely can’t trust Barack Obama.

Even thought he is the media’s darling.

Remember….your not smart enough to pick who should be president. The media basically feel that the American experiment has failed. Fortunately, they are here to tell us how to vote……

Yes! to Ron Paul

Our economy is in a deep Recession-the deepest since the Great Depression. If you read my last post, then you see that the American voter is lost at sea, afraid of Republican mediocrity.

Unfortunately, I had to cut that post short. (Hopefully, those with families will understand. Family has to come before blogging….) But hopefully, the point comes across. If nothing else, I think that the videos I link to speak for themselves.

I’ve made some effort at talking about our Constitution. Of coarse so much more can be said about that, but I think I’ll move on to the second point of my earlier blog:

https://noxforchristmas.wordpress.com/2012/01/08/ron-paul-can-save-america-5-reasons-why/

Point number two was that Ron Paul is the best candidate for restoring our economy.

I’ll try to attack this category a bit more logically than I did my last category. I intend:

1. To establish that we have spent seventy years digging our own graves, economically speaking.

2. To demonstrate the flawed thinking of the other candidates: Obama, Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, and Perry.

3. To reveal how Ron Paul’s policies are built on sound economics, and fit with the successful Reagan policies.

Let’s take a deep breathe and begin……

1. We’ve spent the last seventy years spending out way into third world status.

A wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary….. -Thomas Jefferson

He wasn’t an idle explorer of intellectual Marxism. I know this is kind of incendiary, but he was basically a Marxist-Leninist. He believed that there was a revolutionary class that was going to turn around our whole nation, redistribute wealth, change control over private property. -Dr. John Drew commenting on his friendship with an Occidental College student named….Barack Obama

There was a time when America was the Land of Promise. People from all over the world were desperate to come here in order to have a better life. We’ve dealt with the main thing that made America great: God given freedoms spelled out in our Constitution. But the second thing that made us great was that we were free to pursue happiness. We had the right to run businesses and make money, and make our own choices with that money. Kings, tyrants, dictators, and Politburo’s did not dictate how people ran their lives or spent their money. “American” became synonymous with “millionaire” in poverty ridden countries throughout the world.

One of the natural consequences of freedom was that some people were more successful than others. And, human nature being what it was, some of the wealthiest businessmen did abuse their wealth and position. Some of the corporations formed lost sight of the importance of human dignity, and abused their power over their workers. So unions began to form to counter these abuses, and some of these unions espoused the ideas of the scholars, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.

Fast forward to the Great Depression. The contest of ideals was on, and we had the perfect conditions for a test. With the greatest world wide decline in the economy in at least a century, American voters were hurting in a major way. Unemployment was around 25%. People who had sang “We’re in the money!” in the Roaring Twenties were now asking “Brother, can you spare a dime?” Republican Herbert Hoover told American’s to have faith in themselves and in the capitalism that our country was founded on. But with the Depression rolling on, and Hoover’s less than inspiring rhetoric, American’s rallied to call of the great Democratic leader, Franklin Roosevelt. Right or wrong, FDR did attempt to take a proactive role in ending the Depression. He was approached by the great economist, John Maynard Keynes, who diverged from classical economists by saying that government deficit spending could, on a short term basis “prime the pump” of an economy and help end a depression.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Maynard_Keynes#During_the_Great_Depression

I won’t debate classical and Keynesian economics here. My point is that we’ve been deficit spending ever since, and have rarely even pretended to change coarse.

http://www.davemanuel.com/history-of-deficits-and-surpluses-in-the-united-states.php

But then, economics is no longer taught in our schools. Most people have no grasp of how to take care of their check books, let alone discuss macroeconomic theory! Its a topic for another day, but just to remind you, my major theme, now, is how Ron Paul can save America. And education is a major factor in his platform for restoring America.

http://www.ronpaul.com/on-the-issues/education/

And I’ll leave you with one last quote.

“Bless me, what do they teach them at these schools?” The professor in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, written by C. S. Lewis.
