The Conspiracy Against Ron Paul

I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. My experience in the White House leads me to believe that a secret is currency that it is quickly spent. Some conspiracy theories have thousands of people in large organizations, operating with extraordinary discipline, keeping secrets for hundreds of years, a mathematical impossibility in my opinion.

Having said that, my lifetime of studying history informs me that conspiracies do happen and usually when a group of people feel threatened. And in case you were wondering, Ron Paul, the presidential candidate, is very likely the subject of a conspiracy. He is the man who has opened that door on the Federal Reserve.

The partial audit he prompted revealed that close to $16 trillion was doled out to Euro-American insiders and their corporations in 2008 alone. That is more than the entire national debt. It is a tax on every American and unless you are getting billions of that money yourself, you ought to be outraged and grateful to Ron Paul for figuring this all out.

It is no accident that the media ignored Ron Paul's upset showing at the Ames Straw Poll. It was so obvious to the whole nation that we laughed when Jon Stewart joked about it.

It is no accident that in one of the early debates a director at MSNBC was picked up screaming into Chris Matthews earpiece, "Don't go to Ron Paul, don't go to Ron Paul," even though it was a health-related question and Ron Paul was a medical doctor.

In the CNN debate, Wolf Blitzer asked numerous candidates about the idea of auditing the Federal Reserve but not Ron Paul who wrote the New York Times bestseller on the subject and introduced the bill in Congress that sparked the recent partial audit. Nor is it accidental that it was called a tea party event and the "father of the tea party” wasn't acknowledged as such.

I am persuaded that Ron Paul is advocating that the Confederacy was right about its interpretation of the Constitution. The Confederacy was about not having much of a Federal government, and so to is Ron paul.

The people who support Rep. paul often, to me, sound like they support him, not so much because they agree with the Confederacy about limited Federal government, but because like the Confederacy, people liked the character of its leaders, like Robert E. Lee. So, they like Paul's consistency and apparent willingness to stand up to the big boys backed by corporations. Yet, if implemented, paul's ideas would make the country even more of a playground run by bullies.

I am wanting someone like Rep. Paul to challenge obvious tools like Obama and the establishment Repubs, but, I hesitate to go whole heartedly for Paul because his program would allow, if not encourage some of the worst social problems we could imagine. After all, slavery was not something the Confederacy was able to do anything to correct.
