Ron Paul and the Empire
August 02, 2007
As Ron Paul’s campaign for president continues to gain momentum -- largely from an Internet-based movement -- people are beginning to wonder not only if Ron Paul could really win … but what would happen if he did.
Paul’s ideals are directly in contrast with the “carefully concealed oligarchy” that currently runs the United States. Both Democratic and Republican candidates are typically “puppets” of the establishment, but Ron Paul is a freelancer, and his three central ideas radical:
1. The federal government must follow the strict guidelines of the Constitution.
2. America should deconstruct its empire, withdraw our troops from around the world, and practice a non-interventionist foreign policy.
3. America should abolish the Federal Reserve Bank, eliminate fiat currency, and return to hard money.
Considering the massive bloodshed that has occurred historically any time the oligarchy was challenged, this LewRockwell.com article questions the lengths and powers that he will go to keep Ron Paul from changing the status quo.
Every premise of Paul’s campaign is “unacceptable, repellant and hateful to America’s ruling elite.” A plan to keep their existence intact would include the following sequentially escalating, steps:
In short, Ron Paul’s ideas have the power to threaten the core of the American establishment’s worldwide empire. As for Paul’s campaign, the article points out, “This is not a political agenda. This is not a party platform. It is a revolution.”
- Ignore him and, if possible, exclude him from debates
- Ridicule and fear-mongering that distorts Paul’s ideas
- Scandal, real or fabricated
- Threats through the criminal justice system (with a “plea bargain” to drop his candidacy)
- Ensuring his presidency ended in failure, if he was elected
