Ron Paul – Just Like Ronald Reagan – But Without All the Acting

with Ron Paul is that he is honest and transparent. He is Not acting.

have believed the Lie for so long that they have come to expect
it; to lust after it. They want politicians to tickle their ears.
The last thing they want to hear is the whole truth and nothing
but the truth. They want things from government that are unlawful
for government to provide. They have a messianic complex when it
comes to government. It is their god surrogate.
big enough to supply you with everything you need, is a government
big enough to take away everything that you have..." – attributed

eats government grows – and when it grows it eats. Eventually it
can grow big enough to consume all property and all liberty – and
usually with a frightening toll in lives lost and destroyed. Once
liberty is drowned in tyranny and chaos it can take generations
It was comical
when Reagan was running and the other side kept making comments
like, "How can an actor be a good president?" We now know that most
politicians are just lousy actors.
tickled our ears so artfully. He pushed all the right buttons. Perhaps
he even fooled Ron Paul for a brief moment. But he was still an
example of symbolism over substance. Under Reagan government grew
and liberty shrunk.
Ron Paul is
the opposite in that respect – he is all substance – Constitutional
substance. In his career performance we have witnessed a practically
flawless example of the public servant who obeys his Oath. He hasn't
been bought yet – and it would appear he's not for sale.
need men in government who cannot be bought. Sadly, most current
office holders are little more than amateur actors. Want proof?
Ask them to articulate a Constitutional Principle. Just pick any
one. Robert Byrd is a Metaphor. While he carries the Constitution
in his pocket he is the undisputed Champion of Pork Barrel. That
little booklet he carries should burn a hole in his jacket.
We wanted what
Reagan was talking about. We yearned for it. But Ron Paul is really
living what Reagan talked about. And that is why he is feared by
the entrenched mediocrity posing as our lawful government.
Over time I have thought much about that alleged watershed moment
when Reagan boldly proclaimed, "Mr. Gorbachev Tear Down This Wall!"
It finally occurred to me that there were at least two possible
reasons why it might be appropriate to tear down the Berlin Wall.
Could it be perhaps that there might be no need for a wall if the
entire world was well on its way to a socialist world government
– the goal of the Communist Internationale? Perhaps there would
be no refuge left in the entire world once totalitarianism became
universal. So who would need a wall with no place to go?
I realize there
are those who will take offense at anything that challenges Ronald
Reagan's legacy. But I have never been very good at fawning. As
I recall he was working for me under Oath – and I am very offended,
that, after all the lip service, he was disobeying his Oath to my
It took me
a few years of serious study to understand why Reagan and most other
so-called Conservatives were really just puzzle pieces in the dialectic
process toward communism.
I will not
dwell on the most public scandals like Iran-Contra. But I would
like to apprise you of something much more insidious; something
that was going on in the Reagan Education Department – just one
department that we will dismantle under the Ron Paul Administration.
Ronald Reagan was complicit in a plan to deliberately dumb down
American education. It doesn't take a great intellect to surmise
that maintaining superior educational opportunities is crucial.
In fact the Feds have no Constitutional authority to involve themselves
in the education/government-controlled brainwashing of your children.
And without the government involved it is hard to imagine anything
that doesn't work better [other than the defense of life and property
– government's only lawful function].
educational efforts expanded dramatically under Reagan, and Charlotte
Iserbyt, author of The
Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, tells us how she blew
the whistle in the presence of an indifferent Ronald Reagan. Soon
after that she left federal government service with suitcases full
of documentation about the plans well under way to make sure your
kids will be dumb enough to be integrated into a not-too-bright
global class of workers. For more information visit
her wake-up call. She had hoped Ronald Reagan would immediately
take a firm stand against a communist system of education in America.
Ronald Reagan failed to stand in the gap to protect our children.
America's government-funded [read "government-controlled"]
school system is a model for State control and integration into
a One-World Government. It always has been. Government funding expects
Ron Paul consistently
presents the only solution for academic excellence and free thinking
– get the Feds out of the education business – it is Not the Constitutional
prerogative of the Federal Government.
As the mainstream
media keep up the blackout on the Ron Paul campaign, we should not
be surprised. We should redouble our efforts to educate ourselves
and our fellow citizens so that we too may deftly turn arguments
toward Constitutional solutions in full legal and historical context.
return of "a government of laws and not of men" is what
frightens petty tyrants and sycophants at all levels of government.
Now is the
time for America to wake up and demand nothing less than a complete
return to limited government under the Constitution.
