Stupid Tuesday: Politrix As Usual
I'm not really sure whats going on here. I've been trying to keep an eye on the whole Presidential charade. I had heard that the personal bickering between candidates and mud slinging is more prevelant before Super Tuesday.
Obama and Clinton both must have had their chains yanked from speaking too freely. They looked like they were on a date at the last debate. It's become this drawn out drama, with Hillary shedding tears on more than one occasion. They are both pretty much hollering the same thing, yet the historical value of this ticket can't be overlooked. But is making History really the goal of this election? To bring on the first Black President, or Female president? Call it what you want, but alot of folks aren't looking past that. Of course people are unhappy with what the past 8 years of Republicanism has brought us, and looking forward to a different United States is on alot of people's minds.
A different United States is going to take more than a reimplementation of recycled ideals, under a new name. It's going to take a Revolution. Obama seems to be the most accesable choice for such a thing. Yet is he really going to Revolutionize our country? I had to agree with the general consensus, to completely deny any credibility to the current Republican regime, and almost gave up hope that the Democrats would be the lesser of two evils. My thick headedness almost made me miss one of the most important arguments put forth during this Presidential Race.
Our American Empire has drifted away from it's cornerstone of Liberty, and has fallen victim to it's own tyranny.
Why does the average person get lost in these candidates' rhetoric? They are Babyling. There is not straight talk.
Or so I thought
Ron Paul is a Republican. That fact made me deaf to Paul until recently, and is making me rethink the way everything is done. He is more Conservative than John McCain, yet more Left Wing than Obama/Clinton. He has been attacking a more serious threat to our country than other candidates are bold enough to address. What could be more of a threat than the "Terrorists" to our country? Our own Government!
The more we rely on the people in power to make our lives better, the more we can begin to see that America is a modern day plantation. Freedom is, in part, about using our powers as individuals to live life as we see fit. Why does that seem like a laughable notion these days? Why is everyone keeping the real threats on the hush tip?
Because they are all in the same gang.
I'm not telling anyone who to vote for, or choosing a side. I'm just putting it out there for those who haven't listened to Ron Paul after listening to everyone else. Just listen to Ron Paul after watching part 3 of Zeitgeist The Movie, and see how integral the printing of money, and inflation rates are in the enslavement of our country.
