The more support Texas representative gains, the more the global elite
are taking notice

By Steven LaTulippe

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) is gaining steam in his presidential campaign and the establishment is preparing to stop him at any cost. His fundraising statistics reveal a blossoming, Internet-based movement that is uniting libertarians and other concerned citizens from across the political spectrum.

His performance in the media has been sharp, and his organization is honing its message. But if Paul remains a viable candidate, he faces a set of obstacles unlike any other. When evaluating his chances, it's important to understand contemporary America: This is not a democracy and not a constitutional republic.

America is a carefully concealed oligarchy. A few thousand people, mostly in government, finance, and the military-industrial complex, run this country for their own purposes. By manipulating the two-party
system, influencing the mainstream media, and controlling the flow of campaign finance money, this oligarchy works to secure the nomination of its preferred candidates (Democratic and Republican alike), thus giving voters a "choice" between Puppet A and Marionette B.

Unlike the establishment's candidates, Paul is a freelancer running on
specific ideas. The federal government must function within the strict
guidelines of the Constitution, should deconstruct its empire,
withdraw troops from around the world, reestablish a foreign policy
based on non interventionism, abolish the Federal Reserve Bank,
eliminate fiat currency and return to hard money.

This is not a political agenda or party platform. It is a revolution.
The entire ruling oligarchy would be swept away if these ideas were
implemented. Every sentence, every word, every jot and tittle of this
agenda is unacceptable, repellent and hateful to America's ruling elite.

The reasons for this are obvious. Through its control of the Federal
Reserve, the banking elite makes billions of dollars in unearned
profits and exerts enormous influence over the American economy.
Countless industries and special interest groups (both foreign and
domestic) have sprung up around our so-called defense and national
security budgets. The bureaucratic elites who dominate the federal
government despise the Constitution's limitations on their power and
view the document as just an archaic "piece of paper."

They will not "walk away" if Paul is elected president. When its
authority over the Southern states was challenged in the 19th century,
the oligarchy suspended the Constitution and launched a bloody war
that killed three quarters of a million people. They arrested
newspaper editors, deported antiwar congressmen, and burned down
American cities.

A century later, the oligarchy nuked two Japanese cities, killing
thousands of civilians in the twinkling of an eye. When its marginal
interests were threatened in Southeast Asia, the oligarchy launched a
devastating war that killed over a million people and left the region
marinating in toxic defoliating chemicals.

To further its interests in the Middle East, the oligarchy slapped
horrific sanctions on Iraq that so far have killed 250,000 children
(and then trotted out Madeleine Albright—one of Clinton's
blood-stained trolls—to smugly declare that the deaths were "worth it").

If the oligarchy would behave this way to protect its often marginal
interests, what would it do to stop a devastating assault on its very

The attack on Paul will begin in earnest when it appears he has an
even remote possibility of winning. It will follow a fairly
predictable path: The first step is already in play. The establishment
will start by simply ignoring him, by using its power in the
mainstream media and their influence over campaign donors. It will try
excluding him from debates. This strategy is already failing. The
Internet and talk radio are outside the elite's direct control and are
being used effectively by Paul to "get the message out." The
establishment will generate ridicule and fear mongering.

Paul's ideas will be grotesquely distorted in establishment media "hit
pieces." They'll say he wants to permit heroin use in public schools,
or that he wants old people to die in the streets without their Social
Security checks, or that he wants to allow greedy industrialists to
dump toxic waste into your drinking water.

The next arrow in the oligarchy's quiver will be scandal—real or
fabricated. Usually, this takes the form of pictures, billing records,
etc. involving financial or sexual hi-jinks. For these folks, it would
be child's play to implicate him in some sort of phony ethical, moral,
or financial skullduggery (doctored pictures, sordid media accounts
from "eyewitnesses," etc.).

If Paul somehow survives this assault, the oligarchy will move on to
the criminal justice system. On some fine day, a stretch limo will
pull up to the Capitol Building and one of the establishment's hit men
(Jim Baker or maybe Vernon Jordan) will ooze into Paul's office for a

Maybe Paul forgot to fill out Form X109/23W on his 1997 income tax
return? Or drained a mud puddle when he built his new house that could
be classified as a "wetland"? Or maybe a close relative is in hot
water with OSHA/FDA/IRS/youname-it (federal prosecutors love to go
after relatives in order to gain "leverage"). Paul's sentence could be lessened if he
agreed to drop his candidacy as part of a "plea bargain."

Ayn Rand once stated that the hallmark of authoritarian systems is the
creation of innumerable, incomprehensible laws. Such systems make
everyone an un-indicted felon and allow for the exercise of arbitrary
government power via selective prosecution. If all this failed and if
Paul remained a threat to win the presidency, the establishment may
decide to let him take office and then use their considerable
influence to ensure his presidency ended in failure—mostly through
their control of Congress, the federal bureaucracy and the mainstream

The oligarchy's problem with this strategy is that it entails
considerable risk. As president, Paul could use the powers of the
office to inflict untold damage to the imperial structure (especially
if he chose to withdraw American troops stationed overseas). Worse, he
could appoint anti-tyranny "ideologues" to a variety of positions in
the federal government. The damage to the oligarchs could take decades
to undo.

"To calm fears, Americans accepted the patriot act and the doctrine of pre-emptive war. We tolerated new laws that allow the government to snoop on us, listen to our phone calls, track our financial dealings, make us strip down at airports and even limited the rights of habeas corpus and trial by jury. Like some dysfunctional episode of the twilight zone, we allowed the summit of our imagination to be linked up with the pit of our fears." Ron Paul 7/30/07
