Excerpt:


The establishment left fears Paul because he is actually serious about reducing the size of government, by a lot. They see a Paul presidency coupled with an even more powerful Tea Party in Congress as the possible death of the New Deal dream. This blows their minds. Obamacare under a President Paul? Not likely.

The establishment right fears Paul because he is a threat to the massive warfare (and now surveillance) state that this country has built since World War II. If we bring our troops home, if we end the wars that are bankrupting the country, if we abolish the TSA, if we reign in the Department of Homeland Security, how is the establishment right going to get money to the people who give the establishment right politicians money?

So there you have it. Both sides don’t want Paul to be president, and because Paul represents change, not fake Obama “change” but real change, they will do everything they can to make sure their club remains intact.

Why do you think there is the new, and in my opinion highly unconstitutional “Super Committee” in Congress? It is an end run around the Tea Party by both the old GOP and the Democrats to make sure their power is not reduced.

That darn Constitution keeps getting in the way. Doesn’t the Tea Party (and Ron Paul) know that it is we who are the ones in charge. This is our country. We are the big shots. You, the peons are to follow as you always have. Do as we say. Don’t even THINK of voting for Ron Paul.

That is it - too many entities are lined up at the public feeding trough and want to stay there. Both parties agree on that.

great read.

dead on -- neither 'side' want Ron Paul anywhere near this. It's our job to make sure he is.

Obamacare under a President Paul? Not likely.

Ron can't do away with Obamacare without collapsing the economy, because our government has already borrowed against the future revenue that Obamacare will bring in, even though it doesn't start until 2014.
