The Battle of Milford, The Second American Revolution

I nearly deleted my invitation, my finger poised for a nanosecond over the key. I never go to events, I thought, why even open it.

Then my son called wistfully for lunch. My poised finger paused as I experienced a surge of Motherly Guilt. Arthur is 29 now, but he suffered two severe brain injuries when he was in his first year of college, the first a motorcycle accident the second a bullet through his brain in a failed suicide attempt. Sometimes we get miracles. Arthur is very patient, he learned to be during the long rehabilitation. He can walk now but he still needs help. I am his full time caretaker. I try not to make him wait.

Back upstairs in front of my computer I read my invitation to a very special Log Cabin Event. In case you did not know it, the Log Cabin Club is the Republican Club for Gay Persons. I am not gay myself. I joined as a matter of solidarity. Gay people are very marginalized in the Republican Party. That annoyed me so I joined.

I understood why the writer was so excited about being asked. This is like the crippled kid being asked to play on the baseball team. Then he finds out he gets to be second base. Gay persons are generally as welcome as pigs at the wedding for Republican Events. So why was their participation being solicited?

This is what my invitation said,

“Next week, the eyes of the nation will focus on the state of New Hampshire , as Granite State voters are the first to cast votes for the office of President of the United States . On Sunday, January 6th, the national media will follow the candidates for president as they attend the New Hampshire Republican Party’s “First in the Nation Presidential Primary Brunch”. Every Republican candidate for President has been invited to speak, so this event will be THE place to be just two days before the New Hampshire primary – AND YOU CAN BE THERE!

Log Cabin Republicans has signed on as a sponsor of this high profile event. The benefits of the sponsorship entitle Log Cabin to tickets to the brunch and a reception before the event. You are invited to join Log Cabin Republicans at the center of the political universe next weekend in New Hampshire .

Please click here to see how you can join us for this important event!
We realize the lead time is very limited. Moreover, the holiday
 season makes it even more difficult to sign up for some travel.
 That said, we are lucky that the event falls completely over the
weekend, and it's very feasible to fly into Boston on Saturday
 and then fly back home on Sunday afternoon. Log Cabin has arranged for everything once you arrive in Boston, including lodging, Saturday night dinner, transportation to New Hampshire and then a return trip back to Boston Logan Airport. All you need to do is get to Boston!

This is such a 
special and unique opportunity for Log Cabin. Please give it
 every consideration as you make your decision.

If you have any questions about the event, please email”

Now, this letter is interesting for several reasons. First, the Log Cabin Folks evidently think all the candidates were invited. They are wrong, as we all know. That is sort of ugly, don't you think? It is a direct lie. Maybe they would not care; maybe they really are that delighted be included, but maybe they would want to know that this will not be exactly what they have been told.

That happy burble of enthusiasm over being INCLUDED demonstrates what I said above.

Now, if Ron were to attend there would be standing room only. But Ron is speaking at the Liberty Forum at just that moment. That is in Nashua, around 11 miles down the road.

Did you know that Ron Paul Activists outnumber the opposition around 50 to 1 on the ground in New Hampshire? The activists did that with Operation Live Free or Die.

Roxie Collinson, one of the activists who quit her job to work full time as a volunteer, told me she will be going on to Nevada after this. She is not going to quit; she is a soldier for freedom and Ron Paul. Right now we are fighting the 2nd American Revolution.

You see it every where you look.

The only candidate that elicits any enthusiasm is Ron Paul. Otherwise this election is one pathetic show of electoral enthusiasm. This is mirrored around the country at places where campaign signs are usually thick upon the poles this many days before the primaries. Those signs are curiously absent, all but those for Ron Paul. And very few of those signs are designed, printed, paid for, and placed by volunteers.

My friend, Donna Volatile, noted no signs on her drive to Santa Fe except those for Paul and two hopeful signs for Hillary. The area is very liberal. Donna was a liberal like I was once an Objectivist. Lots of us have changed things we thought worked because they don't.

Back to the Log Cabin Club.

Since I was curious about the Fox New Hampshire GOP event I linked over to the Log Cabin Website. There was a schedule and instructions. That included this.

Please join Log Cabin Republicans at the

First in the Nation

Presidential Brunch

hosted by the State Republican Party of New Hampshire

Hampshire Mills --- Milford, New Hampshire

Sunday, January 6, 2008 11:00 a.m - 1:00 p.m.

Log Cabin Republicans has signed on as a sponsor of this high profile event. The benefits of the sponsorship entitle Log Cabin to tickets to the brunch and a reception before the event. You are invited to join Log Cabin Republicans at the center of the political universe next weekend in New Hampshire. Click here to sign up! Questions?”

You can imagine the conversation at the GOP HQ, New Hampshire before the invitation was issued.

“What do you mean no one will come?”

“Well, Fartus, these Ron Paul people just, I mean, well, we can get the people at the Derry Retirement Home to come. If you pay for their tickets.”

But...they will get to meet the candidates for President!?”

“Yah, but they will come anyway if there is a free lunch.”

“Well, we have to get some bodies! Make it happen.”

And so Log Cabin gets its invite.

Ron Paul would tell them that it is an economic principle that there is no such thing as a free lunch. But he will not be there.

But that does not mean that his presence could not be felt.

While the Corporatized Candidates are sitting huddled with Chris Wallace in their smoke filled room at Hampshire Hills Sports & Fitness Club in Milford, probably playing Paper, Stone, Scissors to decide who will get to play president and vice-president and who will relegated to serving on a corporate board, we can change the rules on them. Not just an event but a call to America for Ron and Freedom all will hear.

We need to stop asking to be included so that we can show America how they have been enslaved and change directions.

To this moment the corporations have driven the dialogue;they have said, “out of our charity we will include you.” Now, we need to let them know that is over. Now we show them that it is not they who govern us but the people who govern themselves.

The Republican Party was a vehicle for upholding the Constitution. It could be so again, if we can pry their fear-ridden fingers from control. But it was never the political parties that mattered; those are just tools. What matters is our rights and the vision of a people who govern themselves from their own homes and communities. That is the revolution, what we have been doing without even realizing it.

That is what makes us Revolutionaries.

In Milford we will show them what it means to stand on a record that contains the whole, unvarnished, unedited, truth. Theirs are riddled with spin, they are flawed, ugly; they are funded by the greed that wishes always to consume others using the tools intended to secure freedom for all of us. Let that be seen.

We will show America what they really are. Then America can become the vision to the world it was meant to be.

Our questions will be answered. These are the questions that are never asked in their 'debates.'

Their actions will finally speak for them. That afternoon in Milford we can hold a Forum for Truth. We can broadcast it on line; America will listen.

Ron's presence and voice has already transformed the debate on many issues. But there is much more he needs to say. At the same time we must show Americans how they can regain control of their own communities.

In the next week we can produce the record on each of them. We can ask America to help, and they will. Let all secrets about the Corporate Candidates finally be known.

Their 'visions,' their dreams of power are our nightmares. America needs to make an informed choice next November. We will cut down through the meaningless rhetoric to the facts.

Our nation faces unimaginable challenges, problems never that have never before confronted any nation in history. Americans see this and all are worried.

Our country faces a complete economic meltdown; Banks are being subsidized at the rate of billions every day. Instead of bringing our troops home each corporate candidate has committed himself to continuing the failed policies of George Bush and those who preceded him. It has been a very long time since America had a non-corporate administration.

All of these disasters have profited the ugly alliance of government and corporations.

It is time for Americans to understand what those visions would mean to our families and to us. We can do that in Milford.

Will we have homes left to live in? Will we have food to eat? Jobs?

Will we watch those we love die, untreated because we can no longer afford medical care? Will we see on the television that our pension fund is gone, sucked dry through investments that were high risk when no such investments were to be permitted?

Will our children be able to get an education? Will we see them go off to college or off to endless wars that send them home in coffins or mangled and without hope?

I look at my son and wonder what the world holds for him every day. Arthur wants to go to Disneyland. I tell him we need to wait just a little longer. When you look at your own children you ask yourself the same questions.

Each of these candidates stands by a government that has canceled rights granted not by government but by God. Therefore they stand by a government that has made itself God.

Milford is a charming little town with lots of local shops, wonderful restaurants, charming old homes. There, we can give Americans a Forum for Truth.

Our event will give America the understanding needed to survive and take America back.

Come and sign the Declaration of Independence, it will be there with the causes that make our actions necessary. They need to know we mean it.

The Ron Paul Legacy of Freedom: How people will govern themselves.

Future historians will debate the point. Historians being what they are there will doubtless be as many opinions as there are historians.

“ If the Ron Paul Campaign had been competent would we still have taken back America?”

They may hold conferences to consider the points, assay the individuals involved; there will be no disagreement that it was through the candidacy of Ron Paul that the world of political campaigns changed forever, moving into networking, as opposed to hierarchy; The real question will be the motives of those in charge of the official campaign. That is natural; the Ron Paul Campaign overturned that political hierarchy first.

Could the Campaign HQ in Arlington, Virginia have held politics on its previous course if it had been run competently, as the other presidential campaigns were run? What if they had possessed some modicum of experience? What if they had known that the media uses a Day Book, into which all campaigns enter their events? What if they had had a steering committee, standard for presidential campaigns? Lots of what ifs to be discussed by historians. We can be sure they will be.

Did those entrusted by Ron understand that for revolution to take place they must force activists to react against authority?

The formal campaign in Arlington, Virginia was from the first instance unable to do anything much but antagonize activists, forcing volunteers to work on their own. They refused to put up the Congressman's schedule; they refused to pay so Ron could participate in what proved to be the pivotal South Carolina debate until activists inundated them.

The historians will debate if those failures was intentional or sheer incompetence. Those details will interest only historians.

Those failures made it necessary for individual activists, moved by the words and principles of Ron Paul, to look about them and use what had been made available through the Internet to take the campaign into their own hands.

And so a new world of governance through persuasion and consensus was born.

The Internet erupted. Signs in yards, on the highways, and in the sky appeared from the pocketbooks and work of ordinary people. Graphics produced and shared online, with requests filled by volunteers became routine. Ron Paulists began monitoring ballot access; they learned how to conduct registration drives, how to do videos, how to organize; how to fund raise. They had to and they did so unburdened by anything but the need to promote their candidate.

Through its absolute failure, therefore the corporatized, official campaign made it necessary to reinvent the forms for political action to which we had become accustomed. As Jefferson said in the Declaration, “...all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

The campaign flowed past Arlington, Virginia to make history by forging new tools of human action. That, history will note. The people had had enough of regular government and those who acted like one.

When you build new tools that work those tools get used.

Those same tools, decentralized strategies for broad social cooperation that lower the cost for accomplishing rapid change, are now being applied to all human action. The CorporaState will feel the impact like a sledge hammer to the side of the head.

Not to say it is going to be easy; but now it is impossible to stop. The people know how to do it. A taste of their own, individual power was all they needed.

Forget Blackwater; Erik Prince will return to playing with toy soldiers and conducting seminars for hunters once he gets out of prison. The War in Iraq will sputter to a halt. The debates on whether we should have gone will cease. Revolution is happening.

The continued ability of corporations and government to redirect our money into their pockets always depended on their cleverness in keeping a hierarchal social, political, and business structure in place. The Ron Paul Revolution changed the rules.

The change took place first in politics but is essentially spiritual, reaching into the minds and hearts of people across the world to whisper, “you are all One.”

If that sounds much too mystical to be relevant to politics, think again. We are spiritual beings in material form no matter what our faith. Today much of the Earth is Christian, not through preaching but through demonstrating the benefits of living out that truth; Christians believe we are One in Him. But the connection between us is understood by all faiths.

In his book, “The Rise of Christianity,” Rodney Stark demonstrated this using the staid tools of sociology. The words of Jesus said, “Whatsoever you do for another you do also for Me.” Those early Christians took that literally, reaching out to nurse the victims of plague, ignoring the religious affiliation of those they struggled to save. To each they granted through the truth of their actions the inborn autonomy of self-ownership. Women were free, a freedom they would enjoy until the Christian Church became hierarchal with Constantine.

Think of that early Church-State, the one that imposed a hierarchy where there had been freedom to live in brotherhood with all. Today we reverse direction.

Individual freedom, free choice, enforced by custom and law, enriches all of us in more ways than we can possibly imagine because the world so created shatters all of our own self-framed limitations and prejudices.

Now, this moment, the flow of time and power is moving away forever from the concentration of power in the hands of a few and towards the means each of us can use to realize our own personal power.

The invisible hand, all of us together, is flexing its muscles.

So today the Ron Paul Air Force takes to the air with banners and blimps to exclaim that all who read should, “Google Ron Paul;” an invitation for connection that transcends all boundaries. People are googling and finding ideas that make sense spoken by a man who demonstrably means what he says. That truth is ripping through the long winded and carefully manicured images delivered through corporate media.

The contrast is striking.

Websites built by volunteers provide tools for action. People gather in their communities to sign the Revolution from bridges and sidewalks. The Granny Warriors take it on the road, uniting young and old in a voice that includes all ages and ethnicities.

You can see it.

You saw the disbelief on the faces of the 'other' Republican candidates while they listened to Ron say the simple truth as Ron has always done.

No one was more surprised than Ron himself at the reaction.

The Frame imposed by the 'debates' was the corporate – government - media attempt to limit our choices and so keep us on their grids; that frame is gone now, replaced by potentials that broaden and deepen every day. Breaking the framing of the CorporaState was the essential precondition for real change.

The people are now doing it themselves, demonstrating how a single, once marginalized, political campaign can change everything.

Soon they will discover that the possibilities are limitless even as they exercise their minds to make sure that they avoid the many attempts to redirect them and their resources into the pockets of those who scheme to build their own little empires. That was to be expected. Success attracts lots of hungry leeches.

Many who formerly thought of themselves as leftists or progressives are discovering that in the Ron Paul Revolution there is no left and right.

Ron Paul has committed himself to rolling back the Federal Government. The rest is up to the people. A people who govern themselves do it from their own homes, their own communities, using those too long overlooked tools of persuasion and consensus building.

All of us were on the corporate grids. In climbing off we will use the same tools, cooperation and innovation, sharing knowledge freely, those are the tools at the foundation of the Ron Paul Revolution.

Individuals are renting houses in New Hampshire to house volunteers who will work through the primary. Those volunteers, many of them professionals, will then move on to South Carolina and Florida. Individuals are putting their lives on hold; just as if there was a war going on.

That is how the Ron Paul Revolution happens. Individuals take responsibility. They ask for help where necessary and the people come, drawn together by that common vision.

Ron Paul will be president, if he lives long enough. Killing him would change nothing. The ideas that Ron speaks have sunk deep. Ron's death would simply put the Revolution into high gear.

Politics is only one of the arenas ordinary people will remake using those tools.

Soon we will climb off all the grids enforced for corporations by government. Energy will be generated at point of usage. It will be cheap. No more people will die because they cannot heat their homes in winter or cool them in summer. Those systems will soon be on the market, despite the Department of Energy that sucked trillions out of Americans.

As we do in energy, we will do in all other parts of our lives.

Big Oil, Big Farming, Big Government all used the same tool, government, to perpetuate profits.

Production will be much more local; craftsmanship and pride in work well done will return. Instead of one global village we will become a globe of villages.

Big Medicine, Big Pharma, Big Retail, Big Courts; each of these controls us for profit. Each is a problem the people will solve themselves. Healing can take unexpected forms; it must to work.

And history will look to the Ron Paul Campaign as the moment when the people discovered they did not need government.

We learn best by seeing and doing it for ourselves.

Will the Light go on for Joseph Farah? Please God, we need a miracle !

Remember how Charlie Brown always fell for it when Lucy held the football? The “Oh Noooooo! You can't fall for that AGAIN!” moment occurred to me again this morning when I saw the Joseph Farah article about light bulbs. Of course, Farah is the one who makes money writing this kind of drivel.

It is simply amazing when one person can be wrong twice in the same article, especially having noted that the problem is, in his own words “command-and-control fascism.” Of course there is. So why does he continue to fall for it?

If there is a fascist agenda it behooves him to think the implications through, instead of launching into blather that so well serves those same CorporaState types, addicted multigenerationally to getting their greedy hands on our money.

Farah opines in his online ezine, “All of these innovations by government have one thing in common – as do all the other provisions of this hopelessly misguided piece of legislation. They are the result of panic sweeping over elected officials because of a mythical belief in man-made, catastrophic global warming – an idea totally unsupported, in fact, contradicted, by all good and sound science.”

Misguided? Actually, right on target. Panicked? Only if those elected types miss the gravy train. The CorporaState is getting what they paid such as Bush, Senior, Maurice Strong, Robert O. Anderson, and Ed Crane to deliver. What was delivered was false dichotomies. You know, if not this, that, when neither is true. Sounds science never enters into it. The cycle of warming and cooling to which Earth reacts is irrelevant. The pollution caused by corporate greed impacts us in more significant ways.

If you think the conflicts that now exist between groups, gay, straight, women, men, races, and on issues like the environment happened because of real issues then I have a bridge you should buy.

All such conflicts serve to distract us into fighting among ourselves when the issue is our God-given rights, not how government chops us up for corporate profit.

None of these is anything but clever manipulation. Since Farah used the issue of global warming, also known as the environment, I'll use that to make the point.

The environment is not now and never was a partisan issue. Those light bulbs we will not be able to use simply force us to enrich yet another corporation; none of those legislators pushing these laws think for a moment that this is anything but a way to squeeze a little more money out of us. They also listen to the noise level generated by the corporations; think tanks are cheap, in corporate terms, an outlay of funds that pays big dividends. The yammering types who are paid through various think tanks and organizations are made up of sincerely deluded and credulous individuals who can't think controlled by those whose 401Ks depend on making sure they don't.

The whole idea of carbon credits and the other controls asserted through the cover of environmentalism, even selling our water along with the right to pollute our air, was on the agenda very early on. They just needed time to get the pieces in place and train Gore.

Follow the money. This is not stupidity or oversight but the outcome of careful, long term planning, the kind corporations have been doing for generations.

In 1970 we all agreed we wanted clean air and water. Those speaking for 'environmentalism' today do so because, with professional foresight, those working for Big Oil and other related Grid Corporations saw how useful it would be to control the environmental movement. So they stole Earth Day. Earth Day, in case you are still living in delusion land, is in March on the Spring Equinox. Those who originated it continue to work for Peace, Justice and Care of the Earth; the corporatypes keep trying to get control of it but, so far, have failed on that one. That is the Earth Society, a group of now mostly elderly activists who were sincere and too trusting. Something you should understand.

The event you celebrate in April is Oil Day. Is the light on yet?

The miracle will be when the light goes on for Farah.

Will You Have Food to Eat Next Year?

Food that costs less and solves your health problems AND builds a new world for all of us.

With the economy tanking and the weight of fear hanging over us, the future looks bleak. Right now many Americans are facing the reality of becoming homeless and hunger and malnutrition will most likely become a reality to Americans who thought that impossible for even the poorest among us.

Like dominoes slowly falling onto their neighbors we are living in a web of causes that are less than obvious. Understanding how each thing relates to the others gives you what is needed to break out of the grids most of us accept as necessities of life. They aren't.

You need to take action now, starting with the most elemental issues that sustain life.

Americans depend on the food they get from the grocery store more than ever before. The unpalatable fact is that food from the local, corporate grocery store is going up in price so rapidly that people who have not shopped for a while are having sticker shock. The price you pay is only one issue, however. That food, and how it is produced, is also causing many of your health problems.

The grocery store food has changed since it came from local farms. The advent of factory farming converted the food we eat into the profits of corporations. Looked at from the viewpoint of a corporation, who have only one goal, to make money for themselves, each aspect of production becomes an issue of minimizing their costs and maximizing their profits. That hits you in ways you cannot imagine. Until now. You need to know so you can make an informed decision about what is best for your family and yourself.

We are going to look at what you are buying and what it is really costing you and show you ways to rebuild the economy while you rebuild your health.

Factory farms produce food that is designed to keep for long periods. Therefore factory growers identified varieties of plants that can be harvested green and ripen later. Monsanto has genetically engineered many of the foods used by factory growers to augment their profits and allow them to own what was once viewed as the property of God. Monsanto wants to own the DNA of the food you eat, making the seeds you buy sterile. They have taken steps in court and law to give them ownership through the twisted ideas of privatization, which is really an ongoing corporatization of everything we need to live.

Monsanto leaves no leaf unmolested in its quest for profits as this writer shows. “Monsanto scouts out farmers who it feels have unlawfully planted patented seeds, or who have saved seeds from one generation to the next, and collects damages by threatening legal action (through either infringement or breach of contract charges). The company claims to pursue as many as 500 infringement cases every year. But no farmer can control the wind, which indiscriminately cross-pollinates crops without regard for their genetic makeup. And some farmers, like Schmeiser, claim that Monsanto strong-arms innocent farmers who never wanted to grow GM crops to begin with.”

The seeds sold by Monsanto are not designed for your health. Corporations are not held accountable for the long range impact of what they sell. Factory food has been described as actually growing hydroponically, in soil that has none of the microminerals or organic content that the plants can use to ensure their own health – and yours. Pesticides used to diminish the impact of insects that are drawn to unhealthy plants like wolves are drawn to the diseased deer in a herd and killed through the use of pesticides that remains on the plant and becomes part of your dinner.

What is not healthy cannot nourish you or those you love.

Today the residue of such pesticides are everywhere and accumulating in the milk suckled by babies from their mother's breast. Yet healthy plants do not draw pests and do not need pesticides. Regaining the balance with nature makes those unnecessary; something that has been proven by Steve Tvedten, the author of The Best Control.

Pesticides originated from the development of weapons of war. Now they are killing us and still profiting the same companies.

Factory farming, plants and animals, are inherently unhealthy because of these kinds of practices designed to burnish that corporate bottom line. Profits.

So you need to know that a revolution is going on in America today. All across the country people who have taken a hard look at the world corporations are creating have said no and are changing how they, and those around them, eat.

You can join that revolution by learning how to grow your own and eat locally. On our show this Friday we will hear from one of the people who are leading the revolution back to locally produced food, Joel Salatin of the three generation Polyface Farm.

“IN 1961, William and Lucille Salatin moved their young family to Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, purchasing the most worn-out, eroded, abused farm in the area near Staunton. Using nature as a pattern, they and their children began the healing and innovation that now supports three generations.

Disregarding conventional wisdom, the Salatins planted trees, built huge compost piles, dug ponds, moved cows daily with portable electric fencing, and invented portable sheltering systems to produce all their animals on perennial prairie polycultures.

Today the farm arguably represents America’s premier non-industrial food production oasis. Believing that the Creator’s design is still the best pattern for the biological world, the Salatin family invites like-minded folks to join in the farm’s mission: to develop emotionally, economically, environmentally enhancing agricultural enterprises and facilitate their duplication throughout the world.

The Salatins continue to refine their models to push environmentally-friendly farming practices toward new levels of expertise.”

The Food Revolt is happening across the country. People who life in large, metropolitan areas are also finding the means to eat local contracting for food with farms not so far away. Local Harvesting, decent respect for the animals we eat, knowing where your meals originate, are becoming part of the direction for Americans who will survive the meltdown just starting.

And the food will be better than any meal you can remember because your body does know what is good for it. We need to remember that while the change over is scary and difficult that challenge is insignificant when compared to the benefits we will all of us enjoy.

Every time you climb off one grid point, turning off to some tiny extent, the profits of big corporations you are striking a blow for – freedom, community, and the kind of world you want to leave to your children.

Think about what you eat. It makes you what you are and it can make you free.

Steps to Revolution – Effective Coalition, Cooperation, Communication, Consensus.

Visit our Cafe Press Shop.

Today on Lew Rockwell's blog Donna Volatile, a long time peace activist, said in an open letter to the Anti-war Movement,

“A few activists like myself have crossed over to support Ron Paul but far too many others have not. Far too many from the left, far too many progressives and liberals and far too many anti-war activists have not.

We have so much in common but many on the left ridicule Ron Paul and his supporters. They are so stuck in their positions, they do not see the monumental things we have in common.

For many on the left it is Ron Paul's stance on abortion, or his stance on health care and the list goes on...

But as we face another election year and perhaps the most critical and important election year, I ask what cause can be more important than the cause of PEACE? Without it, we have no chance at all.”

Sometimes we reach a moment in time that calls us to question the framing of ideas that we have always accepted. That can be frightening. But necessary. This is such a moment. Peace is not the absence of war. Peace will only happen when we discard the initiation of deceit, coercion, and violence as individuals or through such human tools as government.

Ron Paul is not just anti-war, he is a peace activist who can bring us together in a new frame for all human action. The campaign spontaneously taking place for him is an authentic shock and awe moment.

Ron Paul's impact on the present framing is clear from the deer-in-the-headlights expression you catch on the faces of Republican candidates during debates. They cannot believe he is breaking the frame they have so carefully and expensively constructed.

Ron Paul has always stood up for the Constitution; His message resonates. That is why he has been ignored by such 'Libertarian' organizations as Cato Institute. Those involved with Cato are the NeoCons of their movement, dedicated only to their own profit; using the rhetoric of freedom for ugly purposes.

With Ron Paul alone does honesty trump rhetoric. Even as the Constitution is dismissed as just, 'a piece of paper,' by George W. Bush, Paul speaks clearly, his voice alone in Congress for the last years. Through his reminders of our Founder's intentions we are called to question our affiliations with all political parties. We are called to take back America.

That is what the Ron Paul Revolution is about.

There are only two parties in America today. The Corporate Party, comprised of the Democrats and Republicans who support corporate candidates and those who support individuals with integrity, like Ron Paul. A short list.

The Ron Paul Revolution is bringing America together; that will escalate. Honesty and integrity, speaking truth to power and meaning it, brings its own power.

The idea of a Paul – Kucinich Ticket first saw light of day on my show, The Spiritual Politician, last year when it was proposed by Gene Gaudette, a life long liberal and the editor of American Politics Journal, the longest running E-zine on the Internet. At the time no one believed it possible. The divides were too deep, but Gene was right. Kucinich and Paul disagree on the tools but share the qualities of honesty and integrity for which we hunger. . Elected they would take action to stop war, and there are more wars than the one being waged in Iraq.

Americans are coming to realize that war is being waged on them, using as weapons the very institutions they pay for to ensure our security. Legislation, regulation, the courts, taxation, education; we pay and they use these as weapons to control us.

Those who wanted to ensure their continued profits baffled us with bullshit, trying to bully and frighten us into submission. The ominous threats of 'Communism' still echo in the newly honed cries of 'Islamic terrorists.'

The people so identified are not honest ideologues; they were and are employed to build specious and carefully manipulated ideas into justifications that permit the continuation of their profits. The Greed Grids pour profits into Big Oil. Big Energy, Factory Food, Big Medical, Big Pharma, and Big Killing. As they grew they partnered with Big Money, which many identify as The Fed.

Alan Greenspan was not hired for his brains but because of his connection to Ayn Rand; his presence sustained hope as the policies passed into law stole us blind. It was cheap ideological cover. Examine the work of Milton Friedman's Chicago School in contrast with that of Ludwig von Mises. It is not a free market if it flows through government fingers.

The NeoCons and their employers play with ideas the same way teenaged boys play with themselves. For them the modes for gratification have increased while remaining very focused on personal outcome.

America was divided on manufactured issues. Those in the employ of corporations worked to anger us over issues of personal behavior, the environment, homosexuality, abortion, illegal immigration, 'national security,' marriage, crime, gun control, you name it. Take any of those issues and examine it closely. All push more intrusive, legislation, imposed and enforced by government. Such legislation carries policy that also accomplished a steady increase of subsidies, in military intrusions, diplomatic muscling of foreign governments, no bid contracts to such corporations such as Halliburton and Koch Industries, and most favored donor status that cemented relationships between legislators and those who control the corporate check books.

There is a name for this; that is racketeering. As time went on more intrusive legislation begot more power concentrated in the hands of those who use government as a tool to destroy competition and extinguish the accountability we have a right to expect from everyone, no matter what their income. Virtue comes from how money is earned, not how much.

We need to cut off the flow of funds by stopping the profits to the Grid Corporations.. That means climbing off all the grids.

We must exact accountability for these past wrongs. Profits grabbed through abuse of trust is thievery, plain and simple. Those responsible need to be emptied of funds, left penniless on the street to send a message to future generations of the wishful greedy. We need to compile their names for that accounting.

This is the time to come together to carry out those changes needed to return America to the full realization of individual rights, peace, prosperity, and community that was the original mission. That is the light that should shine out to the world, a beacon of hope.

Do right and you will do well for everyone.

You might think the goal impossible but it has never been closer. Now we see how the People of Greed operate; their greed lead them to expose their avaricious intent, their complete lack of ethics and morals and the fact that most of them come from families that view this kind of theft, like the Mafia, as the 'family business.'

Now we can take action to extinguish their predatory behavior through transparency, accountability, and a real adherence to the principles of individual rights. Never before realized, the idea of individual rights for all remains to be enacted. You have heard the rhetoric but never lived the reality.

Ideas are tools, they are, in fact, the first artifacts of human invention because the idea always comes first; we cannot see or touch them, we can only infer their existence from the material remnants left behind. Philosophies are sets of ideas with no material existence. But the idea we call Natural Rights is an extrapolation of the fact that each person born can, and must, take action to survive. Here, an idea met biological reality.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — “

The revolution came with the word, 'all.' It is not the barons but every person born who possesses rights. The rationalizations that condemned women and blacks to non-person status condemn the unwillingness of those in power to give up the profits that accrued to them. It was wrong. This time we need to make sure that our individual rights are secured; that government affirms those rights.

For most of us that began with political parties. Now, we need to change that framing. Parties have become tools for controlling the people instead of fulfilling their original purpose, that of enabling the people to govern their own affairs.

Today we see both the Republican and Democratic parties manipulate rhetoric to evoke our trust and their own internal rules and the election process to maintain control. When that fails they just cheat.

Future generations will see the Ron Paul campaign as the moment when the people took into their own hands the tool of the Internet to bypass political parties, creating for themselves a new form of government that ignores the framing enforced by politics, the media, and through the structure of rules forced on us by government owned and controlled by corporations.

The Internet connects us in a vast network that knows no hierarchy. It sends a message that resonates with the essential message of Christ, “You are One in Me.” In all the ways we understand ourselves, material and sacred, a revolution is happening as we learn to work together, all political viewpoints, all races and genders, all ages, and all faiths. One.

Two days ago the Libertarian Party passed a unanimously resolution that invited Ron Paul to seek their nomination:

NOW THEREFORE, in the event that Republican primary voters select a candidate other than Congressman Paul in February of 2008, the Libertarian National Committee urges Congressman Ron Paul to seek the presidential nomination of the Libertarian Party to be decided in Denver, Colorado during Memorial Day weekend of 2008.”

The Libertarian Party was under pressure because of the overwhelming numbers of Libertarians who had contacted members of the National Committee about the Paul candidacy. Former Republican Congressman Bob Barr, now registered Libertarian and serving on the National Committee, authored the resolution, partially reproduced above.

When as much as 80% of your membership speaks, you listen. Barr had also served with Ron in Congress and said of him, “I looked to Ron if I had a question on the correct way to vote. You could count on Ron voting the right way, especially on economic issues.”

We have long expected a realigning election. 2008, by all indications, will be the year when American politics change forever along with our own framing for what it means to be human. Eyes are turning back and forward to community, things that sustain and nurture us in the spirit.

Today Americans are leaving the major parties, disgusted with their corruption, hungry for something they feel should exist. They are finding that in Ron Paul. What comes into existence could be a form of government that mirrors the changes we are seeing taking place through the Internet.

The people are proving, by doing, that they can govern themselves.

Instead of politics as we have known it we can see cooperation through persuasion; consensus built through trust, local organizing, and transparency.

There is much to be done.

We need to take back elections into our own hands. Today they are weapons used to control us. Instead, we should be using paper ballots counted by precinct committees we elect from the precinct; we should tabulate on line where all of those votes can be tallied, and checked, by all.

They will probably steal this primary for one of their corporate candidates; they have the means in place and, clearly, that is their intention.

If that happens we need to keep going. Ron knows his duty and will not fail us.

I remember when local people ran their elections. There was community, trust, cooperation, and kindness. It was a time to come together. We need to come together again, for all of these reasons.

Declaration of War: Take Back America

Wednesday morning early the power company came out and turned off her electricity. She was not expecting it; the bill was a little late but she had called. She had decided that the money that had come in would have to be used to pay the mortgage this time.

She is Paula T., a mortgage broker and the owner of three businesses in South Florida. Two months ago the IRS hit her with an audit; her bookkeeper told her that there has been an unrelenting wave of such 'audits,' all seem to be aimed at sucking out even more money. Paula does not know how to deal with that. Yet. But Paula is no quitter.

Three years ago Paula was planning trips to Italy; today she has to tell her three high school aged kids that none of the things she hoped to provide for them are probably going to be possible. They are now out looking for jobs that will bring in money that will be used to put food on the table. Forward thinking, Paula is now putting in a home garden so at least there will be food in a couple of months – if she can keep the house. At least, she said, the plants will have the sun. That will not drive up her electric bill.

This is the reality today across the country. The middle class is vanishing into the abyss of immediate need that once marked those in poverty. The upper class is also tightening their belts – unless they are in that most exclusive of clubs, the Club Greed.

Your mortgage and the home it pays to keep the rain off your head is one of the grids that the CorporaState has designed to pump your wealth into its own pockets. If you understand the reality of fractional reserve banking and how the banks really operate you know that while Americans were forced by the Act of Congress to accept responsibility for the currency issued by a private corporation, the Federal Reserve Bank of Club Greed, our elected representatives have no control over what takes place.

While it was possible most of us assumed that the banks were honest and that they were doing their job. Now every day more people have stopped believing that comfortable fiction and the question of what we can do as individuals to hold on to our lives and hard earned money – and our homes – is becoming more compelling and frightening.

What are you going to do when they come to turn off your electricity?

What do you do when you lost your phone service?

What do you tell your kids when you can't afford to put food on the table?

What do you say when you get the notice they are foreclosing on your home?

These are the real problems that will be confronting middle class Americans because the giant sucking sound you hear, if you listen to the ads for refinancing, easy credit, and quick money. are really done to distract you from the crooks who snuck in the back door to steal you blind. Those are the Grid Corporations, your auto company, your electric company, the Oil Companies, Big Med and Big Pharma, and Big Food. They and Big Government, so closely associated they have merged into one identity, are the problem we face today. Last night there was a debate on CNN for the Republican candidates.

Here is what happened.

“Although this was a camera filled exchange for Paul, it clearly seemed that questions were steered away from Paul during the entire debate and that both video questions which were directed to Paul from YouTube users both contained spoon-fed derogatory questions about conspiracy theories and whether he would run as a independent, because he clearly wasn’t going to win the primary.

According to the New York Times, two planes were circling overhead, one flying a Ron Paul banner, another with lights spelling out his name. A ship to support Ron Paul circled in the bay just outside the hall and just beyond the security fences erected around The Mahaffey Theater, Mr. Paul’s loyal supporters waited and cheered with shirts and stickers and other assorted Paul gear.

CNN treating Ron Paul as a minor candidate, moving the camera from his as much as possible, and limiting his role at the debate easily comes into question.

Paul pointed out that he had 5,000 people of all races turned out for his rally outside Independence Hall in Philadelphia.

Noticeably agitated Paul stated “Did you know that our campaign raised over 4 million dollars – in one day”?

Ron Paul also said “We are taxed to blow up the bridges overseas, taxed to rebuild those bridges and our bridges are falling down. This country is sick and tired of what they are getting. We are in the middle of a revolution and I’m happy to be part of it.”

The Paul Campaign is awakening Americans, not to him as a savior, but to their own power and to what is happening today. That is why the Corporate Media cannot afford to let him be heard.

Awakened, Americans will enact change and realize the truth.

China is a Communist country. 98% of Chinese live without mortgages. They own their homes.

In most of the world no one comes in and turns off your electricity when you cannot afford to pay. The electric company will not care if you freeze to death; if your aged grandfather, a hero who won honors during WWII will die because you cannot keep his insulin cold and his oxygen machine on. They will shrug.

Americans are coming to realize that war is being made on them. It is a quiet war waged on each of us economically in our own homes and through out jobs, through the educational system, and through every institution we thought we could trust.

In war it becomes you duty to strike back. This war demands we cut off the grid corporations, rebuilding America from the individual and community into a network sustained by cooperation, consent, and transparency for all.

Therefore what you do about your electricity matters. Getting off the grid strikes a blow for freedom. Today you are being contacted by companies that offer you lower rates – if you stay on the power grid. Instead, get off the grid.

The technique used here will sound similar to the way the phone companies have been enticing you to stay on their comm grid even as Kevin Martin, the head of the FCC holds secret meetings to sell off the airways that were to be held in trust for for us? You can mesh yourself off that grid, too.

Do you know they are at the same time, using parallel rationalizations, selling off the air you breath, the water you drink and the DNA that makes up your body?

Get off all the grids. This is not the vision our founders had for America. What we see today is a fascist state biggest than anyone could have imagined possible.

There are solutions, and those solutions take us back to the foundational values that forged the vision that is America. Because America is not our government and not land or even the people. It is a destination on the horizon that beckons us to find connection with each other through myriad acts of good will.

There are solutions to each of these problems because while they were busy picking our pockets the world was changing. The promise of connection is being fulfilled; transparency in all things is a precondition to the connections now becoming obvious. America will not only survive, it will become the model that will remake the world.

Get started.

Paula T. will be on Off the Grids, formerly the Spiritual Politician, this Friday at 5pm Pacific Time at, hosted my Melinda Pillsbury-Foster

Hillary, Ron Paul, and the End of Fascism

Buy your Christmas cards here!

A Letter to Dear Abby

Dear Abby:

My husband is a liar and a cheat. He has cheated on me from the beginning, and when I confront him, he denies everything. What's worse, everyone knows he cheats on me. It is so humiliating.

Also, since he lost his job five years ago he hasn't even looked for a new one. All he does is buy cigars and cruise around and jokes with his pals, while I have to work to pay the bills.

Since our daughter went away to college he doesn't even pretend to like me and hints that I am a lesbian. What should I do?


------------ --

Dear Clueless:

Grow up and dump him. For Pete's sake, you don't need him anymore. You're a United States Senator from New York. ACT LIKE IT!


All of these guys would be funny if so many of us did not actually take them seriously. We need to stop doing that right away.

The Democratic Party put on its first debate in Iowa the other day. A few of their candidates said they would get us out of Iraq. Can you believe them? No. When you look at their records that is clear. Lying With Aplomb 101 is a required course for attorneys and politicians. The war in Iraq is a permanent part of the business plan for Big Oil. This administration and any of the corporate candidates now in try outs will keep us there. You do not build embassies the size of Disneyland if you do not plan to keep using them.

None of the corporate candidates, Dem. Or Rep., have the kind of record on that issue Republican Ron Paul has except Kucinich, who is a very nice guy. But Dennis also says he believes in flying saucers. That worries many people though it would be more worrisome if he believed anything Hillary says.

Hillary has been attacked because she is a woman and that is unfair and I resent it. I am a woman myself. Hear me roar.

Instead she should be attacked because she is a life long employee of the corporations, along with Bill. Also because her life long ambition is to have twice as much money and power as John D. Rockefeller with half the ethical qualms he demonstrated during his career. Rockefeller would probably been struck with awe over the kind of stealing Hillary routinely carries out, smiling as she inserts the knife elegantly in the back of such individuals as Peter Paul, the Hollywood Mogul who she mangled in 2000. That case is now forcing its way to court.

That should scare you; Rockefeller and most of his descendants show all of the simple decency and honesty we associate with Bluebeard or Attila the Hun, with slightly improved personal hygiene.

For THAT she should be attacked. For staying married to Bill perhaps we should send certificates for therapy and sympathy cards to Chelsea, who is evidently a very nice young woman and not embarrassingly slutty like the Bush girls.

None of these people, with the exceptions of Paul on the Republican side and Kucinich and Gravel on the Democratic side, should be trusted with your piggy bank because the piggy bank would either be emptied or disappear entirely. These people steal so readily they don't even think of it as stealing. They are nothing if not consistent and the most cursory examination of the source of their donations tells you who will benefit from their election to office. This whole process has been formalized as 'bundling' which means, “the practice through which multiple individual contributions from a single industry or interest group are delivered to a candidate over a relatively short period of time.” It used to be bundling was about courting but I suppose this really is a form of courting, isn't it?

Ron Paul has committed himself to restoring Constitutional integrity. Him, you can believe he does not run around bundling. If he is elected, and survives to hold office, he will do just that, restore integrity. Surviving the reaction of the International Banks, GridBanks, and the GridCorps, those invested in those profitable enterprises, is a separate question. Let's hope that he has better security that those running his traditional campaign are likely to arrange.

The people running the Ron Paul campaign come with a curious lineage. The lines of connection run back to the infamous and now well exposed Cato Institute. In case you had not yet broken through the disinformation campaign paid for by Koch Industries, Cato was created to mainstream into the minds of Americans curious alterations of words and concepts. In this way came about the conversion of the word, privatization, coined by Robert Poole of Reason Magazine into its real functional meaning today, of corporatization. Poole, an engineer by training, has made no comment on this but retired to play with his model trains in Florida.

Milton Friedman, who displaced Murray Rothbard in the eyes of the world as a free market guru, helped enable this take over through the esoteria of 'Chicago School' economics after Murray's ejection from the founding board of Cato Institute in 1981. Murray had not realized he was supposed to be window dressing, well paid window dressing. For Murray facts and principles came first.

All of this would be ancient history and forgotten if not for the ongoing effort to convert the political process into stage dressing for the continuing conversion of Americans and their institutions into assets of the International Banks or GridBanks, and their partners, the GridCorps. (see definitions at the end of this article to make sure we are on the same page.) Ron Paul is the monkey wrench in their well oiled machine. Notice how firmly those listed below ignore Paul.

Somewhere along the way they got cocky and stupid and now that is catching up with them. They, like the Emperor, have no clothes; now we can see it and it is not an appetizing sight.

Sometimes even your sharpest critics can be embarrassed by your stupidity.

That was my most most visceral reaction as I reviewed the website for the “Defending the American Dream Summit” held in Washington D. C. at the upscale Mayflower Hotel over two days, October 4th and 5th; . It left nothing to the imagination, not even whose dream they were defending. That would be their own very personal wet dreams of prosperity realized by draining the blood from everyone else.

They don't understand how obvious they are. Speakers were drawn from the employees of the cookie cutter organizations and reliable NeoPundits. But even as I was still cringing I realized that opportunity was pounded on the door, providing the means to make a few small points.

An amazing number of the individuals and organizations represented at the Summit were born in the cookie cutter factory of what many of us have come to think of as the Howie Cogworks of the Crane Machine. Howie is Howie Rich, the clever Objectivist who dumped his first wife and managed to grab all the goodies in the divorce by asking her for an open marriage and then setting a snoop on her. Howie was already boinking his present wife, Andrea Millen Rich, who came from far back in the hills of Tennessee where all kinds of interesting boinking goes on.

The Crane Machine refers to Edward H. Crane, III, the ambitious financial advisor who my source in that industry said he did not consider trustworthy back in the 70s before Crane went political. Crane went on to found Cato Institute with David Koch, Second Brother for Koch Industries. Brother William has been quoted as saying they are no better than gangsters.

The Summit event was the spamchild of two separate factions of the NeoCon Movement and defines the place where Libertarianism meets Strauss. Evidently, some people have not yet gotten the word “Americans for Prosperity,” is yet another cookie cutter retread for that group that has congealed around the aging adherents to Cato Institute and the Howie Rich Cog organizations. Those organizations, including Club for Growth (of their personal bank accounts) reproduced endlessly from U. S. Term Limits and Americans for Limited Government.

It would boggle your mind to know how many of these cookie cutter organizations they have spawned. See the thorough outing given to them by Hart Williams. Hart did the work but did not get the credit. Life is like that. Hart's Crusade continues with articles coming out several times a day on occasion. He isn't obsessive, just determined to out them.

The Cato-Howie partner in this crime against common sense is American Solutions, yet another organization whelped by Newt Gingrich intended to suck in the ideas of innovative Americans to be homogenized into Newt Talk. Their common lynch pin is John Fund, who has an interesting history himself. Fund himself was outed by Justin Raimondo at in 2006. This article fleshes out that story.

The 'strategy' they and their associate, Newt Gingrich, follows has been distorting American politics since that strategy was adopted by the Progressives in 1892. That strategy bears a curious resemblance to that of Leo Strauss. That 'philosophy' holds that it is perfectly appropriate to lie, cheat, and steal your way to power if you are destined to rule. A curiously convenient train of thought for those of an avaricious nature.

Lies come in many kinds. Those include the use of rhetoric completely detached from its real meaning. That larding was thick on the air at this NeoCon love fest.

Those attending ooze words like, 'freedom,' 'free enterprise,' “the sanctity of family,' and 'American Values.' They evoke the name of Ronald Reagan with nearly every sentence.

Please note that Ronald Reagan was never a Conservative. He was truly warm, human and charismatic. But no Conservative. He was himself an early NeoCon hire by Big Oil who then ruled from the Rockefeller end of the Republican Party. This was pointed out by the REAL very Conservative people who got him the nomination for governor in California in 1966, United Republicans of California. At first they were stunned when, ignoring his promises to lower taxes and shrink government (does that sound familiar?) he instead federalized California.

The group, now headed by Connie Ruffley and Marion Hurley, who was active at the time, went on to track his performance and issue a resolution at their 1975 Convention in Santa Maria, CA, urging that no one support Ronnie for either President or Vice President. Obviously, no one paid the slightest attention. The three pages of documentation in 8 point type takes some time to read. The bottom line: Ronnie was not a Conservative; his ideas politically were liberal. His motivation for moving into politics was most probably based on the fact his gig on TV was coming to an end.

Finding this out was painful for a lot of us – but better the truth than continuing into Big Oil Fantasyland. Now you know. If you doubt, call UROC. They are still in existence and endorsed Ron Paul for President. If you still doubt consider Reagan's record as president. If you admired him it makes you want to cry.

Attendees at the Howie Cog Summit were expected to be enthusiastic about the prospect of a White House Briefing, scheduled right at the beginning of the event That crowd was to depart from Mayflower Lobby at 12:30 pm on Thursday, October 4th. Obviously, bolstering up George Bush must be done at every opportunity.

Hard to imagine an American excited by meeting the occupant of the White House today, but the people of the Howie-Crane-Newt World live in different reality all the time. Of course, given the difficulty of finding audiences who will not boo or demonstrate the Briefing could have been subsidized by Halliburton.

There is a long and dishonorable linkage between the Straussians and the NeoLibertarians; they both spin lies and science fiction into packages intended to attract the credulous and so generate donations, either to political campaigns or not-for-profits that are about nothing but profiting on disinformation, I call those Spamchildren. But Newt has to hustle a little more energetically because he does not have his very own personal billionaire, Charles or David Koch. He had long run with the Contract On America Con but all good things must end, even for third rate science fiction writers.

Why do I say, 'largess?' They had to pay to get their audience.

Early registration was only $49 and $29 for students, and included breakfast, lunch, and a special "Tribute to Ronald Reagan" dinner.

While registration was closed elsewhere on the web I learned that there was a special package offered including transportation, hotel and registration for only $199! Wow. And at the Mayflower Hotel, for your information, a quality room for one night costs 459.00(USD) per night. Sounds to me like David Koch was underwriting the event so they could get enough people in to look like a real conference. They did the same with Ed Crane when Koch ran as vice-president in 1980. Alternative 80, the event held in Los Angeles to much fan fare, lost a quarter of a million dollars. It had been billed as a fundraiser. Brother Charles was quite annoyed, complaining to Crane that, “David had spent capital, not just interest!” I listened with rapt attention to that rant in the elevator that day after the event. Perhaps I should have sent a sympathy note.

The price does make you wonder how many of those attending the Summit stayed to any event that did not include food.

This is why you will not see any of these people saying a word about Ron Paul. Ron is, in effect, the garlic that wards off the werewolves of greed and acts as the stake through the heart of Count Dracula of Deceit. An honest man with no pretenses is hard to hit with lies.

But if he is elected Ron Paul will oversee an administration that will make history. In that four year period America will produce an automobile that can get 400 miles a gallon. In that same four years 60% of Americans will get off the electrical grid, producing their own electricity, DC, for less than $100.00 a year in fuel. At the end of his first term the FED will be dead. Americans will again own their own souls.

To get there we need honest elections. Accomplishing that can be done with a coalition between the honest parts of the Right and Left if they come together to force paper ballots, election of those counting the votes as the precinct level, and transparent, open tallies on line, with all of us watching the totals.

If we do that we can, perhaps, also ensure that the GridBanks do not do to China what they are now doing to us. Now THAT would be bad for everyone's security.

So, Hillary may be scary but sometimes the most important need to closer to home.

Organize Locally, Get off the Grids. Build Coalition.
