Ron Paul CAN Win!
August 19, 2011 by Bob Livingston
Despite the best efforts of the mainstream media and the Republican apparatchik to ignore him or paint him as a kook, Representative Ron Paul can win the Republican nomination.
The MSM is finally recognizing that Paul’s message of liberty, sound money and ending foreign intervention is resonating with a growing segment of the American electorate. How can we tell? Candidates — particularly Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann and Newt Gingrich — are trying to steal his message, indicating it’s not so kooky after all. And no longer do all articles and discussions about Paul’s candidacy include the footnote “but he can’t win” after a mention of his name — although most still do.
Paul’s success in the polls has the neocons, warmongers and RINOs in the Republican hierarchy all atwitter. They can’t stand the thought of starving the military-industrial complex, which would cut off their gravy trains. They can’t stand the thought of cutting off the Federal Reserve, which supplies their largess while stealing the wealth of all Americans. They can’t stand the thought of a challenge to their corporatocracy.
Americans now realize — even if the elected elites can’t — that the status quo can’t be continued. Printing more and more money to support unsustainable spending has finally caught up with us. And the people are tired of it. They recognize that Paul is the only politician — in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere — who is saying the same thing he’s been saying for more than 30 years: that an increasingly fascist government and the Federal Reserve are enemies of liberty and financial freedom.
Republican insiders and the media conspired to choose the Republican candidate in every election since 1988: George H.W. Bush, Bob Dole, George W. Bush and John McCain. They are trying to do it again with Mitt Romney and Rick Perry — neither of whom is conservative.
Elect Mitt Romney and you’ll have Barack Obama light. Elect Rick Perry and you’ll have George Bush on steroids.
If you want to continue to see your money squandered on military missions that would have our treasure fighting and dying on foreign soil, installing friendly dictators, nation building and imposing systems of government that the people don’t want, then don’t say you cherish liberty. And if you want to continue to sit back and do nothing while your savings are inflated away by the Federal Reserve, then don’t say you love freedom. If you want a government that blatantly violates your 4th Amendment rights in the name of “safety” and dictates what you eat, where you go, what type of light bulb or toilet you can have your home, whether you can protect yourself, how you can invest, whether you have to put harmful drugs in your body and what type of car you can drive, then vote for the establishment candidate. Because all of the candidates in the GOP field, save Ron Paul, will continue the status quo and you will continue to get what you’ve always gotten.
Americans, if you long for freedom, you need Ron Paul. If you seek a real change in the way Washington works, you need Ron Paul. If you quit saying that Ron Paul can’t win, he will. If you will support Ron Paul, he’ll win, despite the MSM and the Republican Party. If you cherish liberty and value freedom, Ron Paul is the only choice.
If he’s not your choice, then stop pretending you want a free America. It’s that simple.
