The REAL reason Repubs don't like Ron Paul!
This is a great analysis of the GOP's problem with Ron Paul. And a great explanation of the importance of free will and liberty.


God recognizes that there can be no virtue without freedom. Ron Paul does too.

It is precisely because of his recognition of this fact that Paul opposes all attempts to diminish individuals’ liberty for the sake of some amorphous “common good,” some supposedly moral state that the government is entrusted with bringing to fruition. More simply put, he staunchly opposes attempts to impute to the federal government the role of a parent, for if the government is a parent, then the citizen is its child.

While it isn’t obvious to many, the plain fact of the matter is that most of Paul’s fellow Republicans are no less committed to what we may, for purposes of convenience, refer to as “the Welfare State.” The “compassionate conservatism” championed by President George W. Bush and legions of other self-described “conservative” politicians and media personalities in the previous decade was just another term for “welfarism.” And though “compassionate conservatism” has fallen on hard times — no current Republican presidential aspirant would dare to characterize him- or herself in these terms — there is no denying that Republicans have abetted and continue to abet the growth of government vis-à-vis their approach to domestic policy.

There isn’t a single redistributive scheme that Republicans have sought to revoke, and plenty that they have actually initiated. But beyond the matter of “economic redistribution,” Republicans want to use the government as an agent of “character formation.” Rick Santorum is as pure an illustration of this propensity as any. From this perspective, the government must inculcate virtue in its citizens. The notion, common to Democrats and Republicans alike, that politicians generally and the President in particular are “leaders” is a function of this belief.

The pieces of this puzzle of Republicans’ reaction to Ron Paul’s advocacy of liberty and individuality are finally in place. They support a philosophy of Big Government and he does not. It is his stances on foreign and domestic policy that render Ron Paul the object of their scorn.

If one notices that captalism always grows into a system where the top keeps earning exponentially more and more and the poor exponentially less and less. It is time to re examin the system.

Not true- Free market capitalism made the USA into the most prosperous country in just a couple hundred years. The problem is the govt and corps are in bed together- this is NOT free market capitalism- it's facism. And yes facism/crony capitalism does concentrate the money into the hands of the few. We need to stop these unholy alliances of private/public monetary incest- start with the Fed!

Free market capitalism and sound money gives more people the chance to become wealthy. It is the best system out there and you are trying to demonize it-
No other system is anywhere close to as fair.

maintenance of control over the money supply via things like mk ultra, assassinations, false charges, etc., is not free market capitalism

guess you can call it capitalist in a way

but less than 1% of the population agrees with that form

No, what happens is eventually banking,finance, government, media, and business elite grow powerful enough to change the capitalist system into another system altogether. They make laws that benefit them and destroy competition. In effect they use the power of money, influence and corruption to collude with government to destroy capitalism.

The same can be said for Communism/Socialism. Perversion of capitalism is what you speak of, not honest FREE MARKET Capitalism.

Again, the same thing happens in Communist countries. They have their self-proclaimed elite, too.

Corruption is the issue, not capitalism.

Re: The REAL reason Repubs don't like Ron Paul!
I think they don't like him because the changes he wants to make seem to much for them, so they stick to the same old type of politician we've always had.

But if you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.

I think Ron Paul is only choice if we want something different. The other clowns aren't even worth a trip to the voting booth.
