R3VOLution and the Road Ahead
In 2007 the call went out. Thanks to the Internet many were informed of a radically different presidential candidate aspiring to be elected in 2008. It was a candidate who spoke directly to fundamental problems that mainstream media and politicians had long ago capitulated to, and in some cases, defended.
Ron Paul, a Republican, no less, offered hope to millions of Americans fed up with meaningless wars, big government disconnect, and shrinking personal wealth. Beyond slogans of hope and change, the anti-neocon Ron Paul R3VOLution offered answers – restore the Constitution, require our leaders to obey it, prosperity and peace will follow. Although the GOP establishment, with the help of corporate media, thwarted Dr. Paul’s campaign, the political landscape was changed forever. A new political paradigm emerged in a big way.
Here in Boulder, Colorado, folks of many different stripes responded to that call. Disgruntled Republicans found themselves shoulder to shoulder with antiwar and 911 Truth activists. Enthusiastically, we formed a local group, leafleted at local events, and pounded the pavement in our own precincts to get Dr. Paul nominated. Despite the victory of politics-as-usual, Republicrat, and banker yes man, Obama, we pressed on with Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty working to raise awareness for restoring our constitutional republic and building support for future freedom minded candidacies.
Yes, that’s right, here in Boulder. Official sister city of Lhasa, Tibet, and plenty of Free Tibet bumper stickers on ski rack fitted Subarus to prove it, Boulder is a model community for U.N. Agenda 21 and sanctuary city par excellence. In hyperdrive to eliminate individual and property rights using the sustainability scam and global warming hoax, Boulder is also a case study in how a select population can be convinced that it is hip, trendy, and progressive, to go along with forced incremental collectivization. Helping in this dumbing down process are plenty of local reactionary individuals and organizations cloaked in banners of ‘peace and justice’. Gatekeepers for Left/Right polarization, they are fond of demonizing Tea Partiers as “racists”, and groups, such as the Oath Keepers, as “right-wing terrorists”.
Curators of the archaic socialist mindset, they cite greedy, polluting, corporations as the cause of all war and suffering. Willful stooges serving the power elite agenda they call for more laws and more government to rein in the capitalists conveniently forgetting that we are well past the era of robber baron capitalism. In this stage of financial capitalism banker owned corporations are melding with banker owned governments ensuring a completion of the fascist model of totalitarianism.
Despite this antithetical sociopolitical setting, the Boulder Campaign for Liberty continues to grow along with other freedom groups throughout the country. The message of classical liberalism (limited government, individual liberty) as opposed to the collectivist ideology of the modern liberalism of today is compelling and undeniable. The phony Left is revealed to be as philosophically bankrupt as the phony Right. While appearing as opposites, modern establishment Liberals are, in reality, the dialectical partners of Neoconservatives in their shared quest for 21st century fascism.
Starting a freedom group anywhere is easy. The hard part lies ahead.
The Road Ahead
Regardless of the turmoil and confusion caused by attacks from the phony Left and Right, the essence of a legitimate patriot, people’s movement remains intact. The inappropriate appellations of “tea baggers” targeting grassroots tax protesters are now seen as the predictably hollow and nervous squeals of the intellectually frustrated. The prime time television theatrics of Glenn Beck, and other phony conservative disinfo agents, are now exposed as a not so subtle Neocon co-optation attempt.
Going forward, the freedom-liberty movement faces still more challenges. The greatest challenge yet to come is that the movement still needs to clearly define itself and it’s goals independent from special interests. Establishment GOP party hacks continue their attempt to co-opt the freedom awakening with a new version of Neocon Lite. Riding the Ron Paul wave and exploiting anti-IRS, anti – Big Govt sentiment, they vilify Obama’s ‘socialism’. At the same time, they extol the virtues of the fascist phony War on Terror along with its destruction of the Bill of Rights. Let’s all work to restore the Republican Party to its original platform of limited government, they say, and, while we’re at it, bomb the hell outta Iran. After only a year of Bush’s absence, the Neocons truly expect sane and sober folks to fall for this nonsense.
Wall Street parasites pose as born again libertarians and join with other useless talking heads on TV financial news shows. Preaching the wonders of unfettered capitalism they promote a return to the good old days of limited government. Noticeably, however, limited government and deregulation for you and me is often missing from the sermon. Their mantra of; capitalism, capitalism, capitalism, by the way, better captures the linguistic flavor for justifying insider trading and monopoly practices. It is so much more politically correct than the phrase, free enterprise – a concept inferred from our Constitution, that speaks to the middle class, and reflects our culture of self-determination.
It is said, nature abhors a vacuum. Nature is not picky and anything will do to immediately fill the void. The same is true for politics. Running as ‘Independents’ opportunists are scurrying to pander to an electorate fed up with both Democrats and Republicans. Hitting all the right notes playing to the populist mood of the day, their charisma is sometimes stunning. When asked the hard questions about 911 Truth, however, they suddenly go gaga-eyed and do a flip-flop routine rivaling that of contestants on So You Think You Can Dance. Their obsession with winning, sacrificing true personal patriotism, is revealed.
Learning From Our Adversaries
In Marxist lore it is Lenin credited with the understanding that the most intense ideological struggle happens within the revolutionary party, itself. It is not with the opposing political parties. He was keenly aware that the Bolsheviks would not be successful unless there was a common consistent ideology enabling the party to act as a unified disciplined machine. Amid the chaos of a collapsed Russian government, his insight proved to be valid. Among the many parties vying for control, it was the Bolsheviks who were the best organized and seized state power because of it. There were no compromises with other socialist factions. In the years preceding the 1917 Revolution many Communist politicians lost their lives because they did not recant their beliefs. The Bolsheviks maintained credibility, respect, and allegiance during crisis. There were no flip-flops. Say what you will.
Government provocateurs and bona fide fringe kooks aside, the genuine freedom movement does not include anyone proposing revolutionary violence. The infowar and ideological struggle, though, is shaping up to be just as intense. In order to have credibility and to speak with authority, the Freedom movement must stick with Constitutional values without compromise. It must not play favorites with the Left or Right. Sarah Palin and Al Gore should be seen for what they are – two careerist politicians serving the same paymaster. 9/11 and all false flag terror must be acknowledged. All elements of racism and religious bigotry must be expunged. Wars of aggression can no longer be acceptable under any circumstance. A consistent anti-New World Order ideology is sorely needed.
In our high-tech age of instant gratification telling the truth without compromise and risking electoral defeat is a novel idea. It will, however, prove to be the standard by which true patriots are separated from phony politicians. A peaceful Second American Revolution will not happen overnight. It will demand longterm credibility from ideological consistency. It will demand speaking the truth. No compromises. No flip-flops.
