Ron Paul is about to get ambushed in Iowa. The “Teflon Don” defender of the Constitution, Liberty and citizens rights is in the middle of a Republican family feud and the establishment family doesn’t like Paul’s position as a front-runner. However, that didn’t stop Michelle Bachmann’s Iowa campaign chairman, Kent Sorenson, from making a surprise defection from the Bachmann camp to endorse Paul. Sorenson stated, “I thought it was my duty to come to his aid (Paul’s), just like he came to my aid during my Senate race, which was a very nasty race.”
This Republican race is proving to be as nasty. Until now, the White House hopefuls have been ambivalent towards Paul, treating him as the nice gentleman physician, who is stuck in old fashioned beliefs about the founding fathers and the Federal Reserve’s shenanigans. Then something magical happened between the 999 plan nonsense, and Romney Care – Ron Paul’s beliefs, ever consistent, began ringing loudly, as true as the Liberty Bell.
Since Paul’s surprising surge in popularity, his opponents have been looking for a liberty bell sized crack to silence his message. Seeing that the establishment’s media exclusion of Paul wasn’t working (if you ignore him, maybe he will go away) the attacks have been growing and now with the Iowa vote just days away, there is an intense scramble to discredit Paul. Lacking substance, the echoes of the schoolchildren’s name calling is all that’s left.
You know the trick. Paul’s too old. Paul’s a nut job. Paul’s crazy. Paul doesn’t like blacks or Jews. Paul’s foreign policy would bring all the troops home. Think of an insult or an untruth and it will be hurled at Paul. Yet, voters forget how they like to be manipulated, like yo yo’s, wanting the establishment candidates to tell them what they want to hear. Historically, the Presidential candidates knowing that, have played to that tune. How many Presidential wannabes have promised no new taxes, tax reductions, ending wars abroad, bringing troops home, creating jobs, stopping terrorists and even promising the moon with the most famous campaign promise of all – hope and change? The American people bought it hook, line and sinker. Gee, after all, who wouldn’t like some hope and change? And there was this inexperienced dark smiling mythical figure, sprinkling inside the beltway fairy dust all over America.
People are still looking for hope and change, because the last guy – Barack Hussein Obama – reneged on his promise, because he’s just another establishment guy. And when you strip down the establishment guys (and gals) there is an evil ugly sameness from a soul that’s been bought and paid for. The joke is that your money was used to buy the guy.
Is there any rational human being that believes Ron Paul would betray America? The majority of veterans don’t think so and they support Paul more than any other candidate. Is there any other candidate who is willing to call to the carpet the corruption of the Federal Reserve banking cartel and the ongoing Ponzi Scheme being perpetrated upon the American people? And, as so far as foreign policy is concerned, where has all the American empire building taken the nation? Does a Republic and a nation founded on Christian principles seek world domination? Not hardly. Yet, Americans have been programmed to turn a blind eye when it comes to fessing up to their own international transgressions.
No wonder they’re gunning for Ron Paul. Establishment politicians don’t like consistency. They’re used to talking out both sides of their mouth and blowing smoke out their collective rear ends. The are obliged to tell white folks what they want to hear, black folks what they want to hear, Hispanic folks what they want to hear, gay and lesbian folks what they want to hear and the list of establishment double speak goes on ad infinitum. There’s always another politician willing to do a little side step. The Politician’s National Anthem is shown below, in a Charles Durning clip from the movie, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.
Paul is encountering a Western styled ambush, because he won’t betray the Constitution, his principles, or the American people. Because of that, he won’t come to the establishment dance. His principled stance is reminiscent of Frank Slade’s (Al Pacino’s) final speech in the movie Scent of a Woman. Worthy of watching again. A reminder that for the veteran and man married 56 years to the same woman, Ron Paul’s soul is still intact.
