Freedom Discussions

My One Question To Ron Paul


“If you vote for the lesser of two evils, you are still voting for evil and you will be judged for it. You should always vote for the best possible candidate, whether they have a chance of winning or not. Then, even if the worst possible candidate wins, the Lord will bless our country more because more people were willing to stand up for what is right.” – Ezra T. Benson

Ron Paul has provided much of the intellectual foundation of the current freedom movement.  His outspoken actions in spreading radical ideas like obeying the Constitution, Non Interventionism, and honest money provide a clear collective answer to so many of the collective problems this country faces. I believe that history will wonder why we did not listen to him. We know that we should end the fed, end the wars, end big government, and bring honest money into our society. But we also know that it is impossible to reform a system so far gone.

“If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.”

It seems every single election is billed as the most important election ever.  This is done to get us to expend our time, energy and money in a fake political cage match as the true Elite continue with their plans to spread debt and death around this world.  I started the year off with saying that this 2012 Presidential election will be the least important election ever. For no matter who wins, we will continue to go further into debt, we will continue to involve our selves in more wars, we will continue to push our jobs over seas and nothing will fundamentally change, as it hasn’t since I have been alive.

One of the members of our site had an opportunity to ask Ron Paul the first question at a local campaign stop in California.  He immediately contacted me on what he should ask Ron Paul.  I though about it for awhile I knew I wanted to address where do we go from here.

The one question I came up with was…

“You can never solve a problem with the same consciousness that created the problem. You must see the world anew.”
“Do you think working outside our current paradigm will be more effective in obtain our freedom; then placing more effort and resources into legitimizing our current political and financial system?”
Unfortunately I do not think Ron Paul heard the question and ended up giving his answer to why not a third party run.
I wish to use this video to not only re ask the question to Dr. Paul but also to get people to really think about what action we can best take from here.
Ron Paul has been a huge proponent of walking away from the dollar and buying real assets like gold and silver
He has moved for the US to walk away from the world and end  our unsustainable military empire.
He has spoken about walking away from an increasingly tyrannical state and getting back to the COnsittution
Now that Ron Paul is not running for office after this election as he gave up his house seat, I would like to challenge Ron Paul to see the world anew.

You cannot solve a debt problem with more debt, restructured debt, or bailouts.
You cannot solve war with more war, proxy war or covert war.
You cannot solve a political problem with the lesser of two evils.
You cannot solve a depression with the same things that got us into this mess.
You cannot solve a collective problem with campaigns or marches.

You must see the world anew.

I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you’re not in this world to live up to mine.

It is insane to think that 7 billion people trying to manipulate others on what people should do is a rational plan for happiness or real change.
You cannot change the world to make your self happy or free, you must change yourself to make the world happy and free.

Only individual action can solve our collective problems.
Only when we take responsibility for our actions and inactions can we make real effective change.

All fixed set patterns are incapable of adaptability or pliability. The truth is outside of all fixed patterns.
Bruce Lee

If a big Federal government is the problem then, working only on the most local and responsive level must be the answer.
If Wall St is the problem then, taking you money out of their casino must be the answer..
If the Federal Reserve is the problem then, selling all dollar denominated paper assets must be the answer.
If fiat paper debt is the problem  then, real tangible assets must be the answer.
If vapid main stream media propaganda is the problem then, informed, logical education must be the answer.
If factory food is the problem, then organic food must be the answer.
If people pushing their ideas of right and wrong on us is the problem, then walking away  must be the answer.

In short, no answer will ever come from working in the same paradigm that created the problem.

The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.

I believe that Ron Paul’s legacy will not be his 30 years of service, or his dedicated education of the Constitution or free market capitalism or his Presidential runs.
It will be the next generation of leaders he will inspire during our greatest time of need.
I would ask that Dr. Paul consider taking up this opposite consciousness  outside of the choices that are presented to us, as the true path to freedom

“Don’t believe them, don’t fear them, don’t ask anything of them. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.
By working inside the paradigm we actively or passively  support and legitimize the systems that they use to control us.

By playing into the political soap opera, it fools million into thinking that if they just work hard enough they can enforce their world view on to others.
I hope by now see that it is a complete waste of time.
Instead of focusing answer on what we as a collective should do like non interventionism, Ron Paul could focus on what  we as individuals can do to become free of the paradigm.

Let them march all they want, so long as they pay their taxes. Haig

You cannot beg for power any more that an teen can beg to be an adult in their parents eyes.
We must become powerful ourselves to become independent and free.
Only then will the current power respect us or even begin to fear us.
So long as people are dependent or work with in the paradigm, they are not threat to the men that own and control our world.

I think the most important legacy Ron Paul could leave is the idea that no one is coming to save you.

All of our problems start and stop with us.
We are the ones that get into debt.
We are the ones volunteering for the military.
We are the ones watching so much TV.
We are the ones that send our money to Wall St.
We are the ones that work for and vote for social predators that are only concerned about their own profit and power.

Without our active or passive support of the paradigm built upon spreading debt and death, it would all end.
If investors refused to give Wall street their money and bought real tangible assets or invested locally we would kill the vampire squid.
If voters refused to take part in the lesser of two evil campaigns and only worked on local races we would empower the house to cut the purse strings to the beast.
If Americans dumped their Federal Reserve Notes and saved in honest money it would cut the power cord to those that would seek to enslave you and your children with debt.
If consumers stopped buying corporate widgets and saved our wealth for what is truly important like generational wealth.

Maybe then an opposite consciousness will spread as people empower themselves to walk away from the paradigm  instead of throwing stones at others inside the paradigm.
We must look within to find our answers and stop manipulating the world in a fool’s errand.
Maybe Ron Paul will be the one to show us the way, maybe it will as simple as all of us just walking away from things that don’t resonate with us.
