Shirley Husar thinks the Ron Paul movement is going nowhere because it focuses on change through the presidency or the Republican party, whereas real change comes at the local political level. But Ron has always advocated intellectual change as effective and lasting, and used politics as a way to spread his message. For Ron and the Paulians, politics is not about power over others, let alone feeding from the Republican side of the trough--federal or local--but about changing the climate of opinion. That is what will lead to good political change, and not vice versa. As to the change Ron wants, it is simple: far fewer US political interventions in our businesses, our families, our communities, our money, and around the world. No fascism, no central banking, no police state, no torture, no concentration camps, no wars of aggression. Liberty and Peace. These libertarian ideas are lasting, and will far outlast this awful presidential election and its creepy non-Ron candidates.
