READERS' COMMENTS

 

WE NEED TO TAKE THE RON PAUL MOVEMENT TO A HIGHER LEVEL
It's been an inspiring experience working within the grassroots Ron Paul movement. Now that it's reasonable to conclude that we will not win the nomination, I've been thinking a lot about how to help keep the movement together, where the movement goes next, and how that could fit in with the goals of Freedom Force. Obviously this strategy exercise would've been necessary even had we won the Republican nomination, as we know that the fight is just beginning either way.

Already, just a week past Super Tuesday, I've felt a big slump in morale within the movement, affirming what was already obvious: that most members have little understanding of the true scope and depth of the mission, and most have yet to identify the true enemy of liberty, collectivism. But if we can somehow keep the local and regional groups together and involved, the learning process will continue and more members will learn what really needs to be done to rescue liberty and the Constitution.

In Ron Paul's recent video he suggested a mass rally in D.C. to demonstrate the power of the movement. I see little benefit to this plan, and think it indicates a lack of clear direction within his organization.


What is needed is a cohesive strategy to keep the Ron Paul grassroots organized and involved, to shape it into a powerful force for positive change in society. The official campaign actually hindered efforts to recruit and support local candidates, and many of the grassroots leaders also agreed that supporting local candidates would take away from support for Ron Paul. This demonstrated to me that there isn't a larger vision in place along the lines of the Freedom Force idea, and to date I see no sign of such a vision. I see no evidence that the Libertarian Party leadership that's been in charge of the campaign will provide this in the future, either. Ron Paul is in a position, and I think is willing, to be the leader of a larger movement, but I think he needs help with the vision and the plan.

Instead of a Ron Paul rally in DC, I would suggest using the clear strength of the Revolution, the internet, and hold the first national virtual rally. Local grassroots groups across the country could gather with big-screen TVs and party & cheer just as if in DC, and it would be accessible to every member of the Revolution. There could be speeches & music, and the highlight, and main purpose, would be to unveil the master plan by Ron Paul himself...; the plan that will take back our government town by town, county by county, state by state.

This is a rough idea, and I'm simply offering it to see if it flies. If you think it's worth pursuing, or have other insights, please let me know your thoughts.
Sincerely,
David Lamb (2008 Feb 13)

Hello David.
I agree with all that you say except that I can see some possible benefit from from a DC March because it could build morale and clearly demonstrate the massive numbers of supporters for the Constitutional message. That would be one count that the crooked voting machines could not hide. The result possibly could have an impact on un-marginalizing the movement in the minds of average citizens. In the long run, we will need their support. Let's see what others think. Thanks for your thoughts.

THE RON PAUL MARCH ON WASHINGTON
(This is a revision of a posting made last week in which the writer's comments were unintentionally blended with comments from others without making it clear which was which. We apologize for the confusion and hope that restoring the entire letter will make it clear.)

This march should be, in essence, The March For Freedom, Liberty, and the Constitution, Led By Ron Paul, as opposed to The March For Ron Paul. The following was posted on Daily Paul this afternoon. It was met with exactly the sort of passionate division that you would expect, and it illustrates why I feel the way that I do:

"
How are we going to get the message out to the 9/11 Truthers (who mistakenly believe that Paul agrees that 9/11 was inside job), not to carry "9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB" signs at the March? If they carry signs like this, this will be shown on the news and it's what the public will focus us on if this happens. The public will generalize that we all believe that and are lunatics. This could be a nightmare for the Paul campaign. ... This is not a free speech issue. I'm aware that they have a RIGHT to carry such signs. I'm talking about PURSUADING them not to carry the signs, for the best interest of the campaign."

It is an unavoidable reality that there will be individuals who show up at this march and express controversial points of view. Even if you were able to get every single Ron Paul supporter to agree on which views should and should not be expressed (which will never happen), there will be people who show up who are not even supporters of Ron Paul. Some will even be our enemies seeking to undermine and divide us.

If it is The March For Ron Paul, there will inevitably be some Ron Paul supporters who will try to silence those who express views that they find too controversial (with the good intentions of "protecting" Ron Paul and his campaign). There will division amongst the marchers and a widespread collectivist mentality that is contrary to what Ron Paul stands for.

If it is The March For Freedom, Liberty and The Constitution, Led By Ron Paul, we will not be prone to such division and collectivism. We won't encourage this collectivist mindset where everyone argues about what hurts Ron Paul and what doesn't and who needs to be censored by the majority. Though most of the people there will be loudly supporting Ron Paul (as they should), there will not be a need for one group of people to try to silence another. There won't be a discussion about whether or not "we" should "let" people exercise their first amendment rights. Instead, we can all embrace the fact that people are exercising their God-given right to speak freely, which is a big part of what we are fighting to preserve by marching in the first place.

Sincerely,
Adam F, Pittsburgh, PA (2008 Feb 12)

DECEPTION WAS MY JOB
The Testimony of Yuri Bezmenov,
KGB Propagandist.
Deception Was My JobYuri Bezmenov, the son of a high-ranking Soviet officer, worked for the propaganda arm of the KGB, known as the Novasti Press Agency. One of his assignments was to accompany journalists visiting the Soviet Union to make sure they did not discover the truth about Soviet life. After becoming disillusioned with the oppressive system, he escaped to the West at great risk to his life. In this interview, conducted by G. Edward Griffin, Bezmenov tells how the Soviets propagandized their own citizens; how he hoodwinked American journalists into publishing Soviet propaganda, how slave laborers are concealed from foreign visitors, and how he escaped to the West posing as an American hippie. Includes many photographs brought with him on microfilm at the time of his escape. (More)

DEBUNKING 9/11 DEBUNKING
An Answer to Popular Mechanics and Other Defenders of the Official
Conspiracy Theory. Debunking 9/11 DebunkingAlmost half of the American people now believe that 9/11 was a false-flag operation,  engineered by the government to look like the work of an enemy it planned to attack anyway for other reasons. In the beginning, such a view was unthinkable; but, as evidence has surfaced that contradicts the official version, public opinion has turned. That triggered a spate of reports and books claiming to debunk the evidence. Here is the book that debunks the debunkers. It shows how they misrepresented data and ignored facts they cannot dispute. This book blows away the government’s 9/11 conspiracy theory.

WRITTEN BY BY RON PAUL!
If you are looking for a great way to introduce Presidential candidate, Ron Paul, to your friends, this is it:
A FOREIGN POLICY OF FREEDOM
A Foreign Policy of Freedom by Hon. Ron Paul
by Hon. Ron Paul.
Here are 93 entries from Ron Paul’s personal journal including hard hitting position statements delivered to Congress from 1976 to the present in which he challenges the foreign- policy errors of both major political parties. Every problem now menacing the survival of the United States is predicted in these pages as the inevitable consequence of abandoning the principles of the Founding Fathers and the Constitution. If we are to end terrorism and war, if we are to restore liberty and sovereignty, we must reject the bi-partisan insanity of the past 50 years and rally behind these traditional doctrines. (More)
