The World According To Ron Paul

Tyler Durden's picture


With 72% of those polled believing "big Government" is more of a problem now than 4 years ago, it is hardly surprising that Ron Paul blasts "the failure of government is all around us" in this brief FOX news interview. Perhaps it is the fact that "Obamacare has been such a trasparent failure of big government," along with Keynesian economics, and the NSA debacles; that more and more of even the most liberal are realizing just what America has become. "It's really great news that people are starting to recognize this," Paul adds, because there is no way to replace the status quo "until people give up on what we have."

11 .....(and counting, I'm sure after this post)...... fucktard Libertarians who still believe in the myth of freedom.

I used to be one myself.  Then I came out of the Matrix to realize that the desert of the real was even worse.....and with less freedom.

Then I truly became free....when my mind became free of the delusion that there is freedom anywhere to be found.  We all were born into Prison Planet and we will all die here in it.

Now.....back to your regularly scheduled delusion.

You're positively delusional if you think humanity has the capacity for freedom.

Tribalism and Feudalism is the norm for human existance........America was the outlier of history.  But it is now and will continue to revert back to the norm. 

And electing one single geriatric crank isn't going to change a fucking thing.

Instead of "manning up" like some fantasy Rambo.....why don't you grow up and become a man and just relax and watch the freak show and the decline and fall of freedom with a rational eye.

You are NOT....nor ANY of us are Americans.  We were just born here.  We're humans.  And humans have been migrating for MILLIONS of years.  When the time comes.....just leave.  The world is big.

If not.....then move inside America to a more wilderness place where you can watch from afar the psychopaths devolve in real time in the cities and suburbs.  

Otherwise Rambo.....realize this.  You can't "man up" without "gunning up".  The only way freedom can be obtained and maintained is through armed conflict.  Voting every 2-4 years and bitching and moaning....or even focusing on the "positive" will get you nowhere.  But you will fail there as well and you and your family will be branded terrorists for all of time.

Now if the psychos ever stray to my neck of the woods......I've got no problem settling it.  But in the meantime.....I am not going to exert any worry over the dissillusion of this county.  Humans are going to do what comes naturally and that is to wrap themselves in chains.....starting first in their minds.   I can't do anything about that. 

But what I can do is just go about my business and leave people alone as I like to be left alone.  Let the freak show burn itself out.  As long as they don't tread on me.

SilverIsMoney's picture

In a very real sense it's catching on because it's becoming apparent to people everywhere it is too late...if things we're still like the 1990s Ron Paul's influence would be the same it was then. As things get worse and the ignorant look for answers it's important that those of us who were made aware (either by Ron Paul or others) are able to explain to them why what is happening is happening and what we need to do as a nation to fix it. I hope that there's enough austrian free-market consitutionalists out there to outweigh all the media spin when the next crisis hits. As the 20th century showed, at every crisis, the people will give up more power to the government with the belief doing so will save them from a future crisis without realizing doing so only guarantees the next crisis will be worse.


I can't help but remember the first vote on the bailouts was rejected and I gather there are a good lot more awake now than there was then. If we fail to stop tyranny during the next crisis we very well may never get another chance to stop it.

That's exactly why they do it. And the best part for them is that the public doesn't really fact check then, and at least in the case o Obama, the media doesn't either. So all they have to do is speak with lofty, flowering rhetoric, and not worry about consistency. RP was nothing if not consistent, but most of what he said went right over the heads of most of our dumbed down populace.

You indirectly bring up a good point. In essence, we have to ask ourselves if our current plight is our own fault. When reelection rates still top 90% no matter how bad things get...well, that lofty empty rhetoric works and we are responsible for our choices.

Yeah, until Diebold takes hold, or the Black Panthers intimidate at the polls, or the courts determine the victor. Who is "US," and what exactly are "we" winning? What are "we" voting for, exactly? Myself excuded from the "we," since I long ago recognized the the morally indefensible idea of voting....not that it would work anyway.

Somehow, I think Biden is done, but at the moment, based on an all things being equal sort of approach, Hillary will be the next POTUS.  Oh, I don't want this, but I can't see Team Red getting its act together enough to run a "better" candidate.  The Tea Party may very well get lots and LOTS of new money to help continue the divide in the republicans.  


If the republican Presidential Primaries are full of groveling weasels seeking Tea Party supporting voters you can count on this as a way to assure a Republican Presidential Candidate that's not ready for prime time in the minds of the voters and will lose to the H.


Just my read on things at the moment.  MUCH can change.

I used to think McCain was an inevitable next President (and by the way he campaigned, it looked like McCain himself thought so too. :-)  My takeaway - a lot can change, even in a year or two.

But we've seen, that for as long as the economy struggles, voters will lean toward socialist candidates. FDR held onto office by prolonging the Depression, because he knew that a prosperous USA would have no need for him.  I don't think Obama or Hillary are that clever, but if Obama's bungling continues to dampen recovery, that could help Hillary.

I agree with most of what you say but I think you mischaracterize the Tea Party.  Those of us who identify with it are not all in the same camp.  The religous right captured the primary debates and offered impossible candidates.  The RINOs won with an insipid leader.  But then there are others who followed Ron Paul.  Both parties worked to minimalize him and his message.  The only hope is for people to wake up when things get worse.

If a "real leader" emerged, he'd be terminated.

We will get a faux behind-the-scene-appointed leader, at best. If he doesn't follow the script, he gets terminated as well.

More than likely we get an obvious pre-appointed party apparatichik like Hillary, just so they can rub people's noses in the level of control they have over the elections.

Yeah, there was a minor issue of the state-level republicans violating their own bylaws and making up vote results to keep him from having any momentum in order to prevent that choice from happening. Plus the sudden change of rules at the convention to prevent him from speaking... and having the TSA waiting to keep terrorists (aka the fucking pilot) from boarding the chartered airplane when he left the convention.

It really is too bad we never had a chance to elect him -- no sarcasm intended.

All those things were laid out in a YouTube video, I'm on my phone and can't post the link, but it shows all the times they didn't read him off on the results of various polls that had him in a close second, just skipped him all together. They alienated such a huge chunk of potential voters with how he was treated at primaries too. He was also polled as the only one who would beat Obama in a head to head race too. It's every revealing about those who run the Republican Party. They would rather have Obama in office than Ron Paul, since they chose not to run the only person who could beat Obama. Not a big mystery why either. Just 8 more years of bush with a little bit of socialized healthcare thrown in, which what do they care since it doesn't really affect them anyway. Also why a "leader" won't be able to emerge from the outside and win. Those at the top want a status quo candidate. Doesn't matter one bit to them if there is an R or a D next to his name.

Am a hard core long-time fan and delegate for RP.  But I don't see the big move toward libery and freedom . . . quite the contrary (that poll about "big government" notwithstanding).  I wish they would have been a little more creative with questions like:  if people are really concerned about big government, why did the senate just vote 84 to 15 to EXPAND the NDAA for 2014?  Why did Repugnicons in the House overwhelmingly support it?

This is a broad statement I knowingly make and realize RP is different in many ways from his colleagues.  But ALL of them answer to a higher authority than voters once sworn in.  And that must change.

"there is no way to replace the status quo "until people give up on what we have."

Absolutely correct, only thing is that those benefitting from the "status quo", make it awfully expensive financially, socio-economically, and physically to "give up on it".

That's why we always hear "But think of the children"... the status quo know exactly how to use Lame Stream Media to get into the heads of mothers...

Off topic. From a former 20 year World Bank insider. "The goal is control.  They want all of us enslaved to debt, they want all of our governments enslaved to debt, and they want all of our politicians addicted to the huge financial contributions that they funnel into their campaigns.  Since the elite also own all of the big media companies, the mainstream media never lets us in on the secret that there is something fundamentally wrong with the way that our system works."

Actually, I think your topic is quite on: RP has driven home his viewpoint consistently on Fiscal Policy (stop deficit spending), Monetary Policy (end the Fed and thus the control you point to), and Foreign Policy (stop the imperial wars).

And to your point on the Monetary Policy aspect as well as the Foreign Policy, I found this to be a good listen:

more: "A former insider at the World Bank, ex-Senior Counsel Karen Hudes, says the global financial system is dominated by a small group of corrupt, power-hungry figures centered around the privately owned U.S. Federal Reserve. The network has seized control of the media to cover up its crimes, too, she explained. In an interview with The New American, Hudes said that when she tried to blow the whistle on multiple problems at the World Bank, she was fired for her efforts. Now, along with a network of fellow whistleblowers, Hudes is determined to expose and end the corruption. And she is confident of success."

This is where it gets interesting.  If success happens for the Hudes' of the world, that will mean disarray in the power structure, however temporary, where only a window will exist for control of the system to be assumed by the governed.  This will not be smooth and I have this feeling we will only trust a new leader (President) to take office in such a time who'll really not want the job, but is nonetheless the right person at the right time.


The corruption will be suspended for only so long without follow through by the right people, who have the backing of the governed.

My fantasy is the USSA collapses, RP ascends to the top, backed by the armed forces sworn to follow the Constitution, and everyone realizes he is the man for the job. We have a national vote, and RP gets 65% or so of the vote, i.e., a Mandate.

Everyone gets fully automatic weapons if desired to guard their homes, and a new CCC/WPA is created where you have to work to eat. You do not have to sign up, but then you have to forage for food.

All males between 18-62 have to join the Regulated Militia like in Switzerland, and drill regularly. You could also have Militia medical corps, literacy militia, etc etc. If your local militia wants a tank or MRAP, they can take up a collection or hold car washes.

The Borders are Sealed Off and anyone here illegally is kicked the hell out. The Border is sealed with land mines and armed guards. Only the Canadian Border is not militarized, as Canadians are usually civilized.

Financial criminals achieve par with pederasts, and are jailed for long terms or shot by firing squad.

Anyone identified as a "Progressive," aka commie, nazi, statist, etc is sent to 1 area in the SW desert and not allowed to leave. Once a month, an air force cargo plane drops a couple of pallets of MREs, Vegetarian/Halal only.

Backdoor Barry, Shotgun Joe and all the current 'democrats' and 'republicans' get an automatic 5-year prison sentence. Hillary is Exiled permanently to Antarctica, along with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. They have to drive sno-cats around and collect weather station data.

100% of the Civil Service is fired and has to re-apply for their jobs under new rules supplied by RP.

This is hilarious. The old druid keeps banging at State just like Reagan did.

He forgets how STATE got raped by the Reaganista-Bush-Clinton Oligarchy, red and blue on same page mentality.

Now the Big Business Oligarchy runs the STATE like its BITCH. And its gone viral world wide. Corpofascism rampant.

Master slave relation is like in all power constructs. There is a lead matrix host terminal and there are client terminals in the state sector. The NSA construct is a good example of this in CONCRETE terms.

If that Oligarchy construct worldwide BLOWS its power base, like its doing today, thru Oligarchy hubris and consequent INFIGHTING between rival clans, they will bring their newly made Universal Empire down.

Thats where we are today. The world oligarchy is rampant. And in order to keep the sheeple from going on RAMPAGE, has to do things like Obamacare (which in fact makes Big Pharma even bigger) to pretend to be magnanimous.

In an AGE where the oligarchy scam has reached uncontrollable proportions in terms of making the rich richer all the while desperately trying, via their SHAMANS of CB, to stabilising the SYSTEM, which is their GOLDEN CALF.

How come that Ron "the Honest Messiah" Paul, CANNOT see the HOST OLIGARCHY SERVER from the CLIENT subservient terminals in this computerised global network?

Hubris and fall of universal empires; OLD story that gets repeated.

Big Bidness and Big Gummint are the different sides of the same coin. They can not survive without each other. Is it easier to prune the Gummint or Big Bidness? That is the question.

they get "pruned" in different ways. The President takes his first Victory Lap to Detroit to "let 'em show how they really feel." Within six months the City is bankrupt and being looted by the 1000$/hr lobby group that says "winning" to both sides in the "fight." On the Corproate side all of the information regarding debit cards and "financial solvency" are outsourced to foreign countries which lead to "the merry Christmas of Target" where six hundred million in honest earnings is stolen from right under the noses of "the statisticians calling themselves capitalists" who simply cannot figure "the odds" of such a thing happening right under their "watchful eye"...but hey, it is only money. why not steal it? it's not like the bank has any...just a high end bonus pool just like the last time. the end is near? you think these folks have a clue about bitcoin or twitter? hahahahahaha. those things will "budget for you" since the belief is that "wealth like this is in fact a permananet creation" instead of what the whole castle of sand is running on. As much as the tide goes out (2008)...sometimes the tide comes in you morons. An "Ocean of liquidity" as it beyond the dreams of avarice...that simply takes out to sea all the assets you were building "to pay for everything." and when it's gone what is left is whatever Government program you happened to be supporting (by accident. the rhetoric is always the same..."the Government is too big) that happens to be left. Twitter, Facebook, ads coming to Super Bowl time...these things "head out to sea" for a reason. "they have to because they pay for everything." so's "I drink your milkshake" time. and soon it's "this time I've really done it!" since what is being done truly is anarchic and lawless by definition. is there any more obvious rarionale than folks involved in this now actually claiming you need to get the guns and ammo? the whole thing has finally reached "the end game." it has succeeded. it has "won." unfortunately there is no honesty among thieves. they have to turn on themselves in order to to tell the world "I was the one who did this. I'm the one taking responsibility for the attack this time." blame game? hysterical...give me a break. we're well into the end game (and I've seen it first hand) of people you don't even know showing up to say "I did this. we did this." I've never said anything because there are people who "bleed green" in this world. they holocaust the very idea of identity because that is what you programmed them to do...and they will execute on the program. "it's just how it works." your visceral need to show some type of "iidentity" in the matter only attracts attention...the irony being these aren't weird Hollywood concoctions but actual "humans" doing this. "your humans" as it were. Your feelings, your remorse, maybe even you yourself doing it to your own...completing the "mission" set by a concrete set of goals and to be repeated endlessly by a media in need of the next "fix it" in order to complete the task at hand. All I have to say is do not mistake the lack of organization for a lack of an organizing principle. eventually the "right"
people will come along and indeed "then the mission will be accomplished" and all that exists will be what is...what happens to be left...and someone's idea of "wow, that really did happen" and the utter believability of it. so go ahead as a card carrying smack talker of this age. "express your feelings." show me how "you" and "your caring" in any way matters at all other than in "making YOU the target." Everyone is watching now! EVERYONE! But no one is "listening." No one is believing there is an outcome that is already pre-ordained...set in stone. Noooo....this is America...we have "free will" ability to choose how the ending are "product" will be reieves. believe me...unless you have a story to tell...unless you've actually been have nothing to say beyond "put me in the meat grinder too." and indeed...that is where we are at now..."your job is to save all of this." good luck. when your at the point where saving yourself won't work...believe me you can dispense with the speeches at that point. just bring forth the God awful truth and be done with it. Unburden yourself...from your madness. the world is laughing! and why? Because YOU are the lunatic that's why. Congratulations! You've won! you've reached peak insanity!

Shouldn't they play "Hail to the Chief" when Dr. Paul appears?

I wonder if he understands that the real enemy is the Federal Reserve bank and all Central banks run by a tiny few number of people?

Progressives will always get re-elected and provide bigger government because they reward sloth (welfare) and envy (class/race warfare), and support/encourage gluttony (coolness by consumption), pride (trendyness/coolness), lust (abortion/porn), and greed (bankers/welfare).  They play to the worst parts of peoples nature.
