The political terra firma continues to shift in the freedom movement's favor. But not long will it continue without focused action. As the pendulum of power swings away from the corrupt neocon-infested republican party, alarm bells are ringing off the walls in the Republican National Committee and throughout Republicandom coast-to-coast. The recent third special election defeat in a row for the Gop in the Mississippi congressional district, announced Congressional retirements everywhere, and continued buffoonery and pronouncements from their fearlessly feckless leader, “W”. All this and much more prove that the Republicans are scattering, preparing for merciless defeat in November 2008, with no one to blame but themselves.
Mr. McAmnesty, who will become their presidential nominee, if only by acclamation, continues to fuel intense revolt within the base of the republican party. Especially angered are those border, language and culture republicans with his latest Spanish language website and hard green left turn. The Republican party is in free-fall. Because of its actions, it deserves to be. This may be one of those special examples in history, in that, to save the party, it must simply be imploded and razed. It is time for the freedom movement's historic messenger, Ron Paul, to take bold and extreme advantage of this situation and rise above party and run for president outside the Gop. It does Paul and the freedom movement no good standing on the deck of a party that is going down to the bottom like the Titanic. No tears need be shed, bold action, instead. For we have reached an historic moment: The urgent need and requirement, to outflank and decimate, a corrupt freedom-destroying and useless warparty.
If we do not decimate them and force capitulation, the Republican party will come back in some phoney public relations, poll-tested incantation, designed to hoodwink and fool it's shrinking base of support, as they always do, similiar to it's well-known, “Contract With America” or “Compassionate Conservatism.” They all turn out to be “Con Acts” on America. The freedom movement must force Gop capitulation or the same corrupt cycle will continue and the police state they have engineered, in tandem with the Democrats, will have triumph.
This is why a Ron Paul – Bob Barr Libertarian Party 2008 ticket is urgently, repeat, urgently needed!
The time for worrying about Congressional fraternalism and congeniality in the halls of Congress are past. The nation is bankrupt and totters on a full-blown police-state. The Republicans, in panic and scattering like rats off the Titanic, know they are largely to blame and any attempt to point the finger at Paul will simply not hold water. It is they and they alone who are too blame, for Paul has been the lone voice of reason in the Republican sea of insanety. With the Republican party dazed and on its heels, it is our job to help harness the power of the freedom movement and turn the wheel of history in liberty's favor in an historic leap forward.
Importantly, there is now the symbolism of freedom's insurgents (Paul's handful of delegates) inside the Gop temple. We must magnify that with a Paul-Barr 2008 ticket, for when the Republicans rush to the wall towers to see freedom's legion arrayed against them on all sides, let the Gop shudder in fear and either capitulate and join us, or perish as a party!
With poetic justice, right as John McCain accepts the Republican nomination in St. Paul later this summer, cross-town in Minneapolis, Paul-Barr 2008, the true conservative ticket, could be holding a huge rally that meets or exceeds the attendance of the Gop in St. Paul! If they haven't by then, a panicing, shuddering and imploding Gop will realize that the people are, indeed, at the gates! And John “Compromise-at-all-costs” McCain will no doubt pop another vein!
It was just a few short weeks ago when on one of the late nite comedy tv shows that McCain was asked who he wanted to run against, Hillary or Obama? McCain replied, “Ron Paul.” Indeed! We must give him what he wants!
A Ron Paul – Bob Barr LP 2008 ticket will absolutely confound the political establishment generally, and the Republican establishment specifically. Paul – Barr 2008 will effectively, Tilt!, the Republican party. In it's essence, Paul – Barr 2008 to many Republicans, will become, the conservative ticket worthy of support! It is the small government, secure borders ticket that will attract millions and millions of voters from all quarters, but especially large sectors of the republican base, if only in protest of John “Compromise-at-all-Costs” McAmnesty. Deep in their hearts, the Republicans themselves may even sense what is coming and fear the prospect, but are hoping, and no doubt, placing party over country, urging Paul remain on the sidelines. We must give them what they fear!
Furthermore, and most importantly, with the hard-hitting, scorched-earth, though hugely overdue, tv advertisements that Ron Paul's campaign put out over the airwaves at CPAC Convention time last year, the freedom movement is going to reap huge sectors of new converts to the revolution. This is perhaps one of the most important necessities and outcomes of a Paul – Barr 2008 LP ticket, the recruitement of millions of new people to the message. Freedom's lifeblood itself. With it we grow, without it freedom dies!
Mr. Bob Barr, the former Republican congressman who led the impeachment committee that resulted in the impeachment of Bill Clinton, and now Libertarian Party member (Ron Paul is a lifetime member), has announced his intention to seek the LP presidential nomination. Though he has served two years on the Libertarian National Committee, his chances of capturing the nod are perhaps 50-50 at best. Even if he got the nomination, it still would not have the effect of crashing and forcing the Republican party to capitulate from it's anti-constitutionalist, anti-liberty ways. Barr's true role should be that of vice-presidential candidate on a Paul-Barr ticket, to balance, magnify and enhance the wrecking-ball effect on the Republican party.
Teaming Barr as VP on a Paul ticket, further blows McShame out of the water. Expect McShame to melt down soon and often during the campaign! Paul and Barr, together bring a symbiosis that will send after-shock after after-shock crashing through the Republican Party, as the ticket, composed of two members who have both been involved in the Republican party for over 30 years combined and have huge resumes of accomplishment. As a result, significant sectors of the political spectrum, from the left, center, and right, can be expected and will embrace Paul-Barr 2008.
The potential of Paul-Barr 2008 to out fund-raise McShame from here on out will simply horrify the grand ol' party hierarchy. All the excitement and buzz will be with Paul-Barr 2008, as his legions hit the pavement from coast-to-coast campaigning for freedom and spreading the message on a scale that cannot be acheived outside the animated contest of a presidential election.
The path to the October presidential debate table is unobstructed for Ron Paul. Freedom's best known messenger will be in the Fall debates if he simply gets in the race on a Paul – Barr 2008 ticket. But only if Paul's friends and supporters, you who read this now, help persuade Paul of this course of action. Do we want two collectivists debating the future of this country with no representative of the highest principles of this country at the debate table? This situation alone should propel Paul to get into the race.
Paul has already completed twelve months on the campaign trail, and the results have been stupendous. There are less than six months until general election day. These are the most important months of the modern era, if freedom is to have a chance of even surviving. We need you, his friends, allies and supporters, to do what is necessary to convince Paul that this is the proper course of action. Questions about a 3rd party effort have been succinctly addressed elsewhere thanks to Garris and Gregory.
The Libertarian Party Convention convenes in Denver, Colorado, (update🙂 less than 50 hours from now, on Thursday, 22 May and runs through the 26th, Memorial Day. Covered by CPAN, lets make this a week we will always remember as history's turning point, when the freedom movement pressed ahead boldly and won.
Dear friends, we see no alternative, truly, absolutely no alternative that will maximize the huge gains acheivable for the advancement of liberty and freedom and the movement on this scale. Yes, we advocate, and donate to freedom and liberty candidates across the country. It will be great to have 422-11 versus 432-1 votes in the House. That is progress. Yet, history now calls for freedom's great leap forward. Please do not count on others to make the difference in convincing Ron Paul of this course of action. It is what you can do that makes the difference. 50 hours, and counting, is all that remains. The winds of history are favorable and will remain so, but only if you take action to convince Paul of this course of action by urging Paul to run 3rd Party. Please, as you take action, pass this on to allies that can help us in this momentous effort.
Freedom, if we truly love it, must not stand-down at this historic moment, as if we haven't seen enough, tyranny closes in from all quarters. We must get our best known leader into the fray of battle, the most historic election of our lifetime, and compete in the fourth quarter of this contest. You can never win by competing in only three quarters of a football game or seven-innings of a baseball game. For time itself, is nearly up on this experiment our Founders waged so dearly to provide us. Let us not be too comfortable or too busy, for it was our fore fathers who fought and died for freedom, often in horrific conditions, but they rallyed, fought on, and won!. Will you? We owe it too ourselves, but more importantly to our children's future. For if not now, when? We simply cannot permit this advantageous moment to pass. 50 hours, patriots, 50 hours! Please help convince Paul to run. For if he runs, freedom wins!
Call his campaign offices at (703) 248-9115 and his DC office at (202) 225-2831
Of history's recorders, let them not describe the era:
………………At the wheel of history they sleep……….
……………..For their children's children they shall weep………
With Love and in the Urgency of Liberty! May God be with you, Ron Paul, and guide us all in the next 50 hours!Tweet
