People say that we now live in a Police State. It’s more like The Globalists Police State. It’s TRYANNY plain and simple. Fascist Tyranny at that! The Globalists, Industrialists, Bankers, Military Industrialized Media Complex, Corporations, Congress, and most important Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Comm., NWO run things.

Fusion centers are hubs for local law enforcement, the private sector and the intelligence community, and were created in an effort to fight terrorism. There are more than seventy known centers across the United States.


The most important part of this information is the “Private Sector” part.

Yea, you know the part. The Governmental Part funded by us, The American People. The part of our Government that is accountable to no one. Perhaps our own The State Dept. Who knows. In the end still funded by The American People.

The part that equates Capitalism with Freedom and Patriotism. The Perception that Free Markets are the answer.

It’s a One Party System, run by a Dimension of Elites, Industrialists and Globalists, very few at best.

           It’s Fascism. Funded by Us. The American People with still no Accountability.

Tantrum: refusing to support the candidacy of some guy (Romney) who represents everything you oppose

....? Yea, by that definition, we libertarians threw a tantrum, and will do so again and again until the party nominates someone who is not a corporatist douchebag. In other words, I'm giving you advanced notice, on behalf of my fellow libertarians, that the GOP will never win another Presidential election unless they nominate a candidate acceptable to libertarians. ;-)

Too bad to watch Paul resign, since he was the best of those politicians that could actually get elected. Of course, being able to be elected is a double-edged sword. In my opinion Paul deliberately avoided looking deeper into WHY the constitution was systematically undermined and destroyed. Or rather, not speaking publicly about those reasons WHY.

From a theoretical political science perspective, I think that failure to address how and why the constitutional checks and balances were deliberately and systematically destroyed, and perverted to the point to where they are practically BACKWARDS, is mistaken.

When it comes to people like Ron Paul, I find that I tend to agree with everything they say. My objections are about the things that they do NOT say ... Of course, I understand that doing that is far more practical politics, and that it is probably impossible to actually get elected in America unless those politicians do NOT speak out loud, publicly, about WHY the established political system has been almost totally destroyed, and perverted to become pretty well totally opposite to what that was originally intended to be.

But nevertheless, that kind of practical politics amounts to having a BACKWARDS political science, since it constantly recommends that we go BACKWARDS, as the solutions to the social facts that we are rushing forwards into runaway triumphant legalized frauds, and legalized force to back up those frauds.

My view with respect of Ron Paul, and all of the lesser incarnations which are like him, is that they are too superficial. As I said, I tend to agree with everything they say, but object to what they do not say. I do that because their refusal to answer the deeper questions WHY everything is going BACKWARDS, more and more, faster and faster, result in a loop of backwards political philosophy, in the face of those realities.

Ron Paul is an illustrious example of constantly asking "why" without ever providing better answers. Therefore, the suggested "solutions" continue to be too superficial, since the theory upon which they are based deliberately does NOT go any deeper into answering those questions "why."

Ron Paul is a sterling illustration of what I call "reactionary revolutionaries." They adhere the same old false fundamental dichotomies, and keep on promoting the impossible goals of going to the better pole of those false fundamental dichotomies. Meanwhile, the real unitary mechanisms, in the face of that kind of ineffective opposition, based on impossible ideals, drive the real social facts to go in the other direction, towards the negative pole of those dichotomies, more and more, faster and faster.

Tragically, Ron Paul was one of the best of Federal politicians, that were actually able to get elected during the past few decades. The facts are that, objectively, he accomplished practically nothing, other than "educating" a lot of other people to think more like him. However, thinking like that results in promoting an impossible reactionary revolution, that is advocating going backwards, on the basis of a backwards way of understanding WHY the real world has been runaway fraud, backed by force, spiralling out of control.

Of course, I could never get elected, and my fringe cubed views could not become popular in the foreseeable future. But nevertheless, the solutions that I suggest are based on perceiving social problems through unitary mechanisms. Namely, "liberty" is transcendental poetry, which applies only to the universe as a whole, in a vacuous way, without any meaning or operational definitions possible. Reality is ALWAYS organized lies, operating organized robbery. Social systems are ALWAYS based on frauds, backed by force. The ONLY solutions are dynamic equilibria between those systems of lies and robbery.

The answers to Paul's "WHY" questions are that the best organized gangs of criminals were able to take control of the public government of the USA. I suspect that Paul understands that, but made practical political decisions not to talk about that, but I am not sure, and could certainly not prove that was the case. It is perhaps the case that Paul's moral beliefs make it too difficult for him to face and accept the central social facts that there is a shadow government, run by the people who are the best at being dishonest, and backing that up with violence, who were ABLE to take over, to become the shadow government of the USA, and were able to control the government through controlling puppet politicians, while wiping out any other politicians that would not be their puppets.

I do NOT believe that Paul was any kind of conscious puppet. However, I do think he always faced the REAL problem that IF he had become significant in changing things, rather than provided a fringe protest speech, then he would have been discredited or destroyed, by the shadow government, doing whatever it took to do that, up to and including assassination.

That is the final reason why I believe the real political problems have gotten so bad that there are no sane solutions left. The last great politician in the USA, that survived assassination attempts, was President Andrew Jackson. Since then, every good politician was destroyed, rather than able to change the established systems.

IF Ron Paul, or anyone like him, was able to overcome the already established triumphs of the elites dominating the school systems, and the mass media, etc., then I believe it would be practically guaranteed that they would be assassinated. Thus, I suppose my own arguments spiral around and negate themselves. IF there were public politicians, that could get elected and re-elected, while ANSWERING the questions "HOW" & "WHY" the government of the USA has become almost totally criminal, with runaway paradoxical developments such as the biggest terrorist organization in the world is now the Federal government of the USA, then it becomes practically impossible to imagine how such politicians could ever survive not being assassinated.

Ron Paul ends up being the best American politician, that could actually get elected and re-elected in the USA today, which means that he has to be one that is allowed to keep on saying superficially true things, which never actually challenge the real establishment with any threats of real changes.

The almost insoluble political problem we face is that there MUST be "leaderless resistance" by default, since any politician like Ron Paul, in the future, that became a significant political force, that could get elected and re-elected, enough, along with enough others like him or her, would certainly provoke efforts by the shadow government to assassinate them!

Ron Paul has danced delicately down the edge of the precipice throughout his career. I admire him for being able to do that so well. I can not imagine how he could have actually done any better. Nor can I actually imagine anyone else being able to do so. THE REAL WORLD IS CONTROLLED BY FRAUDS, BACKED BY FORCE, AND ONLY OTHER APPLICATIONS OF FRAUDS, BACKED BY FORCE, COULD COUNTER-BALANCE THAT! HOWEVER, RIGHT NOW, THOSE WHO ARE CONTROLLED OPPOSITION, THAT PROPOSE THE OLD IDEAL IMPOSSIBILITIES, BASED ON NO FRAUDS, AND NO FORCE, MOSTLY FAIL TO PROVIDE EFFECTIVE COUNTER-BALANCING.

Therefore, after listening through Ron Paul's farewell address to the House, everything that I said above merely got reinforced one more time ...

" Too bad to watch Paul resign, ... "


Well, who is smoking what (LET ME GUESS)


" Rep. Ron Paul, the iconic libertarian congressman from Texas, has delivered what will most likely be his final address to Congress."



I would say, RadMaryjane, that "resign" is decidely different from deciding *NOT* to run again (retiring).


Choom. Right past ya!



Geez ...

I7E: You appear to be a totally ignorant fool, with nothing to say but useless insults.

I am not smoking anything, and anyway that is irrelevant. Not running again, when one would surely win again, is practically the same as resigning. Paul's term is running out, and he could very likely renew it again, if Paul want to. You are making a big deal about a distinction that makes no difference. For someone who is practically guaranteed to be able to be re-elected, not running again is the same as resigning.

P.S. See my earlier post regarding yout view that the mass media are not controlled. I wasted my time to point out stuff about your series of useless comments, which most of the other people commenting on Zero Hedge also appear to regard as being trash, with no content but trash talking.

Tragically, Ron Paul was one of the best of Federal politicians, that were actually able to get elected during the past few decades. The facts are that, objectively, he accomplished practically nothing, other than "educating" a lot of other people to think more like him. However, thinking like that results in promoting an impossible reactionary revolution, that is advocating going backwards, on the basis of a backwards way of understanding WHY the real world has been runaway fraud, backed by force, spiralling out of control.

I am sorry but does this really make sense to you?

This is a watershed event for the entire western world (and I am not even American, French). The movement which started with the enlightment with John Locke and Voltaire and which the founding fathers of American embraced more than in any other nation has seen its last vacillating light still glowing in a western parliament been shut tonight. The West has been shut down dark. It lost its soul and principles, it has no candle anymore to lit up its path.... meeeerdee !!!

Thirty-six years, dozens of Humphrey-Hawkins, and not once did RP ever ask a straight up question that, rather than raise an academic issue, went right to the heart of the matter.  Four minutes and fifty seconds of his alloted time to preface his question, then dismissed with a giggle by the assembled officials.  At least Alan Grayson went for the kill.  RP spent his career playing to his sycophantic following, but in the end accomplished nothing.  If he had spent his career as a public prosecutor, America's prisons would be empty.  Nice guy, but no leader.  Oh, and the acorn fell far from the tree.  Close the book on the Mr. Rogers of Congress.
