Ron Paul, an imperfect man and yet for some, the Hope of the world.

In a recent discussion with a friend of mine the issue of Ron Paul’s homophobia came up which subsequently questioned his  suitability to run for the highest office in the USA, the presidency. Here is how I responded.

Well Kari you are right in that he (Ron Paul) has and still displays a homophobic attitude. If what I hear of his past stand on Homophobia and racism is completely true and not the distortion efforts of a smear campaign, then I see his position has at least softened over the years. A soft stand for example is where a Christian will tell you they love you and respect you and will even acknowledge your freedom to do exactly as you please so long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else. However, they will still continue to pray for you and your salvation.  That to me is a soft stand. Is it completely non judgmental? No, but is still something that can be worked with and can still evolve.

I also see that there are no current presidential hopefuls that are without major blemish themselves. Our whole world is the midst of a battle between the light and the dark. Some say a final battle for the soul. (Sounds melodramatic I know). But I believe today that every human on the planet is being asked to take a stand and be counted. I truly believe at this point that Ron Pauls’ platform of limited, non-interventionist government, his anti war stand and above all, his dedication towards the concept of freedom for all, is preferable in every way to every other candidate that is currently running.

All other candidates all want to go to war as a means of tackling the unresolvable deficit and all are leaning towards a One World Government that is by necessity, designed to eliminating all of your freedoms. Thus ending with making 97% of the worlds populations slaves to a fascist, socialist form of one world government run by and for the betterment of only a very few a the top.

I look at this and say which is better for humanities future and which is easier to work with if we are to continue to evolve as a species.

Here is an interesting note. We can all agree for example that Lincoln during the Civil War with his Emancipation Proclamation helped to abolish slavery in the USA. I am sure it would surprise you to discover that it was never his intent to do so. The war at the time was going badly for Lincoln. He was losing thousands of men who would not sign up for a second tour of duty. Money was dwindling, supplies were short and he recognized that what was needed was an idea that would galvanize all of these men back to the battlefield. He used the idea of freeing the slaves only because it held a singular purpose of continuing to fight this war. A war that originally was never about freeing the slaves, but was yet again over money and power.

Now if Lincoln had not won this war, think about how the USA would have developed and what it would look like today. Was Lincoln the ‘perfect president’? No, but through circumstance he ended up changing the whole world for the better.

I believe that Ron Paul’s platform (although not perfect) is still the best platform out there today that can at least give citizens of the USA and the rest of the world a fighting chance at making it through these pivotal, difficult and changing times upon us. For me, his one greatest, defining principle is one of freedom. For without freedom and the push towards self-sovereign statehood for all people this one world order concept will fall far short of becoming what could be the greatest self governing design that that man has ever created. A synocracy based on a self-regulating, self-governing, self-sovereign peoples.

Does he personally recognize this potential out come. I don’t think so. But like Lincoln, Ron Paul will be written of in history books as one of the greatest American’s the USA has ever known.

Neale Donald Walsh said in his book  “Communion with God”;

A book I believe is a must for any one that is interesting in seeing humanities’ continuing evolution.

“Dream of a world in which freedom becomes the highest expression of Life, in which no one who claims to love another seeks to restrict another, and in which all are allowed to express the glory of their being in measure full and true.

 Dream of a world in which judgment is never again visited by one upon another, in which conditions are never again laid down before love is offered, and in which fear is never again seen as a means of respect.

There are those who see things as they are and say “Why?” And there are those who dream of things that never were and say “Why Not?”

Now what do you say?”
