Ron Paul and the Freedom Revolution: Politics is Secondary, Ideology is What Counts

The battle for the future of liberty is fought not in the political arena but in the minds of people like you and me.

In less than two years, the freedom movement – under Ron Paul’s reluctant leadership – has made great progress in building a new popular consensus that freedom works and that socialism is a tyrannical, antiquated ideology that all Americans need to oppose.

At the same time, Ron Paul’s recent speeches have addressed the historical fact that peaceful revolutionaries don’t need to convince 51% of the population to determine a new course.

Instead, all it takes to set off the winds of real change in the 21st century is an energized, “irate”, responsible minority of 3% to 5% that claims ideological leadership and explains why Keynesianism has failed and what it can be replaced with.

This ideological fight, to quote Ron Paul, is “where we’re winning. That’s where we’re making progress more so than ever before.”

Event: Florida Liberty Summit with Ron Paul
Location: Orlando, FL
Date: August 7, 2009

Ron Paul: We as a group have an honest responsibility.

I’m always pleased with the crowds and the enthusiasm, but in some ways,
once you see what’s happening, once you get introduced to the ideas of liberty, understanding Austrian economics, understanding our history a little bit better, it can make you uncomfortable, and that’s probably good.

And people will follow up and and they start reading and thinking, but I see people like you, as being very, very special, different, because you are part of a remnant of people who hold things together.

The masses of people will never quite understand, but what you do and say and understand makes all the difference in the world.

But you have more responsibility than anybody, and this is not new, this is not something I brought up or invented, that’s the way it’s always been, responsibility always falls on a small number of people.

And Samuel Adams talked about that. He said, “It does not require a majority to prevail. You need an irate minority.”

A minority that is keen to set brush fires of freedom in the minds of men and then you’ll have a revolution.

And I like the idea that he said “minds of men”. […] I like this that he will start the brush fires in the minds of men so that you know and understand, because it is an ideological fight. This is not a political fight. Politics is secondary to the ideological fight.

And that’s where we’re winning. That’s where we’re making progress more so than ever before because Keynesianism failed and the American people are irate because they know it has failed.

They don’t quite understand what the alternative is and yet we need to fill that void and explain what is necessary.

    Practice a Little Preventative Medicine …and Stop Our Government NOW.

    I know many of us are justifiably complaining about issues with our government. Some of us are feeling there is little that we can do to actually see an immediate change, some relief from so much negativity coming at us at once. We’re enduring financial hardships, joblessness, and seeing our liberties being taken away by the passing of each new law, our personal wealth stolen and our kids in debt before they have even been born.

    Well, I suggest to you now that each one of us has an opportunity right now, TODAY, to make a huge change in the course of history and help our nation avoid a lot more misery, pain and suffering.

    No one here doubts that much of our government is secretive and working against us. We are angry about the shadow government, the elite bankers and those within the FED, with Goldman Sachs and major corporations who are surrounding us like an army, taking our wealth and taking our country down. We have felt helpless. This all goes against what America is to us in our hearts was at its inception. It is land of a free people, not an oppressed people.

    I would like you to take a look at a complaint being filed in Washington State. The print is tiny (CTRL+ will give you larger print). Be sure to read through it all the way to the end. You will get an education! If you have anger towards any of the elite and secret groups, NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THEM ! YOUR COMPLAINT CAN CAUSE AN INVESTIGATION AND CRIMINAL CHARGES TO BE LEVELED AGAINST THOSE WHO HAVE HARMED US AND CONTINUE TO HARM US. They won’t stop themselves, so we have to. We call it then end of tyranny. Let’s get back to living fully in freedom. We need to eradicate them from our financial and governmental system! This complaint summarizes one of the largest crimes planned against Americans and other people around the world, ever! This is global. It will start in a couple of months, mid-October, so we haven’t much time to act. Point by point, you will see that this fall our government with several other organizations listed in the complaint have actually planned to harm us in ways we could never have ever imagine. Obama has appeared on television telling us how he has encouraged several countries to be prepared to also force vaccinate its citizens. As he puts it “they are responsibly prepared”. Nice sounding, but far from nice.

    Names like Goldman Sachs, the elite bankers, criminal syndicate, the World Health Organization (WHO) and many others, several in Illinois, and drug executives who plan to make a lot of money from the sale of a vaccine for the H1N1 virus, but this vaccine is contaminated and lethal. A criminal indictment has firstly been filed against WHO and others by Jane Bergermeister.

    Help take down the criminals who have stolen so much from us already, and who now plan to systematically take our very lives, once again under the guise of helping us. No, they are not helping us, they are helping themselves to everything we own if we die from this vaccine! There is so much documentation. Get legal counsel if you need to. Talk it over with others, but please consider filing a complaint in your state. Who will stand up and put your anger to good use? As Ron Paul says, we need to convert that energy of anger into good use. Here’s your opportunity.

    It is apparent that the central bankers who on paper own and control much of the world’s monetary power are socialists. This is made clearer as we analyze the progression of legislative and monetary policies over the past several centuries. However, Ron Paul states that only a small majority can make the legislative changes needed to stop the world government socialist movement? Should we consider what the communist movement is and who is funding it? Evidence shows that the same share holders of central banking systems have routinely throughout history economically supported both communist governments and socialist governments while raping democratic governments as a spring board of buying power.

    So, what is it then? What do the ruling Elite fully support, Socialism, Communism or Democracy? The answer is simple, they do not give a rip about any of them, yet perhaps the most easy to manipulate and control. Democracy is without a doubt the most challenging system for the secret money changers to control.

    Well, they have done quite well at taking over the American political system. Accept for major warriors like Ron Paul. Ron Paul is perhaps the only politician I have known in my life that has enough guts and logical reason to challenge these cowardly secretive money changers policies. Yet, I fully have been exposed to the myriads of many Americans that are aware of this hidden dark control.

    Socialism may have been chosen by the Elite Bankers because is totally destroys all individual incentives. Socialism equalizes all without merit. However, who standardizes the overall merits? In this case the Elite would. Communism seems to be a placed thorn in the side of resistance. A farce made to force people into submission. American Democracy and the US Constitution, on the other hand, have provided a haven for all Gods Children to gather and learn to live and prosper together in peace.

    To bad that the secret money changers have taken control of the US monetary policy. This has, with mounting evidence, allowed them to use US freedom prosperity to force other nations into their plan. Sad to say but it is true. They took full advantage of all US freedoms to commercialize the Globe into their own Secret Economic Empire.

    So now what? This is not a subject for the light hearted. This is a deep complex problem that will require brilliant economic minds to untangle. In doing so the US must show respect towards the Nations afflicted by the money changers foolish ambitions. The repercussions of their nefarious plans have great unavoidable consequences that will require a great level of cooperation to Amend.
