The Ron and Rand Paul betrayal
Rand Paul endorses Mitt Romney, just days after Romney was seen at Bilderberg and just a few months after his father’s advisers claimed he would deliver his backers to Romney in exchange for Rand’s elevation in the Romney campaign.
The backlash among the libertarian community after Rand Paul endorsed Mitt Romney last Friday is intense.
Libertarian leaders all over the place are denouncing him. Adam Kokesh is clearly hurting badly in this video. On Prison Planet, arguably the most influential pro Paul outlet, the headlines are all about Rand Paul’s betrayal. Mike Adams still cannot believe it and wonders if Paul Jr. is getting in to demolish the system from the inside. This YouTube video asks its viewers to vote to show how they feel and 90% dislike the news. Rand Paul’s Facebook page is being inundated with messages of thousands of disgruntled supporters.
It’s so bad one wonders whether the Pauls have miscalculated. And let there be no doubt, they have been calculating. Even to an outsider like myself, who never cared for either Paul, it looks like the most cynical, blatant and utterly ruthless sell out in quite some time.
In March Time Magazine quoted an adviser of Ron Paul saying ‘If you’re talking about putting Rand on the ticket, of course that would be worth delivering our people to Romney’. (go to 3:40 for the quote).
Lew Rockwell is now on record saying the whole Ron Paul campaign was never about winning. I wonder how the millions of his followers think about that. According to Rockwell, it was all about educating people on the wonders of Austrian Economics, not about winning elections. This probably explains why Paul Sr. never ran as an independent, but preferred losing primaries.
After working for years on Paul’s campaign as a republican candidate Rockwell is now saying one shouldn’t vote and shouldn’t be involved in partisan politics. Now, how disingenuous is that?
And of course all this is just days after it transpired that Romney was at Bilderberg, incidentally upping his credentials as a real threat to Obama big time. The same Bilderbergers, that started financing Ron Paul with millions a few months ago.
So what does it all mean?
Well it’s obvious. Ron Paul exists to lead the opposition into a blind alley. He doesn’t run as an independent, which he would, were he for real. To him it’s more important a GOP candidate wins and he’s undoubtedly worried he would split the vote of the right.
Ron Paul exists, according to his buddy Rockwell, to educate the masses, not to change politics. He ‘touched the hearts of billions of people’ with his love of gold and Austrian Economics.
In the typical Hegelian way his ‘antithesis’ of a ‘free currency market’ dominated by gold vs the ‘thesis’ of government/central bank controlled currency will lead to the classic gold standard the Money Power wanted always. The Daily Bell’s Anthony Wile seems to think so, anyway. Romney is not on board yet, but on the right the momentum for a gold standard is clearly gaining traction and the next crisis, expected anytime, will not be let go to waste.
The GOP will be happy. Ron Paul will probably retire now and is out of the way as the minor hassle that he was. Rand Paul has been completely incorporated and is no problem at all to the GOP establishment. He’s got the charisma of a dead fish and the war mongering program of the traitorous sell out that he is and being cut loose from the support of his father’s backing he will whither away quickly as a real force.
I think it’s fair to say everything has gone more or less as expected. The Money Power has co-opted the opposition in its classical fashion. The millions gasping for truthful change are left holding the bag.
After this election a new change agent will be quickly conjured up out of nowhere, perhaps to establish a Hamiltonian banking system, which, to me, seems to be the next frontier for controlled opposition.
What I find interesting is that both Rand Paul and Lew Rockwell look rather depressed in the linked videos. At least we can see that evil is not a pleasant place.
