Having covered how Ron Paul stands up to the military and central bank, (I mean once you give any entity their own bank, they cease to be an entity you or I can relate to);
The compelling case for Ron Paul, to Republicans is that he simply has a far greater chance of defeating Obama. All the Republicans would vote for him over Obama. Yet some of the republicans would vote for Obama over Mitt. And many democrats would prefer Paul. So Paul has a greater chance of winning than Mitt. Really. Yet the military and the central bank would prefer Obama to Paul. That’s what it comes down to.
Complain about the length causing burn-out, otherwise campaigning is good, and makes candidates stronger.
A brokered convention is good. More people are involved in decision-making. It is empowering. It is what conventions are intended to be about. People come together to decide, not rubber stamp.
We need a constitutional convention every 25 years, that could handle the tough and nascent issues; rather than these party c onventions every four . Why assert the people, once, in 1787, for all time. If the people are such a natural good fount of government, why not recourse to them every generation, empowering, rather than be spoken for, and issues not revisited, from 1787.
The Galls, the proverbial foil to Ceasar’s Romans, they would convene a council and choose leaders at conventions or councils where the tribes would send representatives. Yes often these were called by a leader, looking for the endorsement of all, so the real deciding was already done; but the point is to inflame the passions, at these gallic councils, make the republicans argue and fight and rely on bursts of passion, rather than the dry programmed rubber stamp of todays modern political convention. The galls were a wilder bunch, and America is more gallic than Roman, especially its lower classes.
A brokered impassioned republican convention is just what the republicans have long needed. Because Santorum, who the south prefers, and Mitt Romney, who the mid-west has preferred of late, are not really exciting candidates offering anything that genuinely appeals to Gallic pride and sensibility. Santorum doesn’t seem to understand the kingdom of god, and Mitt Romney seems more handled than most. Newt seems most presentable, and Ron would be great.
Most of the leaders of the Gallic conventions, desired endorsement to create united war against Caesar and the Romans, (who, marching around Europe north of Italy with several armies, naturally was not liked.) And these leaders would talk up a spirit and get the general consent, and rallied-roars of the Gallic delegates, the difference between a representative and a delegate being a delegate does what is told, and anyway, the leader of the united Gallic tribes, taking control, would be appealing, and inspiring and confident and hopeful and wily and brave and smart; but he would always, lose to the Romans, after rallying Gall around him. Only for the next gallic leader to rise and mobilize the next year: this according to Ceasars account of his gallic wars.
And yet this is exactly what presidents in recent memory have been. Leaders who inspired, but turned out to be mediocre at best, dangerous, at worst. I mean Clinton, Bush, Obama, I will even include Reagan as the forerunner of this breed, they round up and rally this support, even if its mainly a support you see on TV, rather than out your window. And this support rallies and united around each of these presidents as they ran, and then these presidents deliver actually very little, and are disapointing, and I think, the presidential term is too long. I’d make it 18 months, hit the ground running, this is no learn-on-the-job sort of experience, this is no hang-on-and-do-as-little-damage-as-possible; this is the frickin presidiency, and in the roman republic you had one year to run it right, and stake your fame, and the presidency could be by committee as well, think how appealing that would be to so many top rank senators, but we don’t consider these options, because we didn’t go with the constitutional convention every 25 years program, in 1787.
So if all these recent and tedious presidents, are no more than Gallic rally-mongers, good at leading a crowd, but not really leading it to anywhere, than why not go with it, and have a Gallic Style, super rowdy Republican Convention; than the Gallic Leader, is The Gallic Leader, and there is just enough lower class sentiment to take this country somewhere better. Like seriously revamping this enforced schooling thing, like seriously letting local decisions be made by the people in peaceful assemblies.
McCain lost because no one like George W., who clearly was doing what he was told and not thinking much himself.
Republicans forget, McCain was a better candidate than Santorum or even gingrich and certainly Romney. It’s just the Bush years were an unprofessional punishable manifestation of the republican party.
Though Mitt won Arizona and tied Michigan, I don’t see him winning. Yet like Bush, no one I know likes him, yet he gets votes. Showing you how easy the Kingdom of God can be controlled to evil.
Michael Savage said the long primary is dehabilitative to the Republican Party Process. I completely disagree. You want to be a good basketball player, you play a lot of basketball, same with campaigning. The army of the Roman Republic consistently won so many wars because they warred so often. Because they warred more than the tribes they subjucated, they were able to defeat those tribes.
McCain knew he was to lose; The most he could do was yield this irish alcoholic secret weapon, Sarah Palin, a missile, still flying around America
Ron Paul is a strong, not weak fourth place. While I appreciate the horserace, Ron Paul has ideas, and ideology, something he believes in, a plan. People with actual plans have to work with people. You don’t impose actual plans, you work with people therein; our federal checks and balances encourages iconic presidents. Of course the president appointing the supreme court makes the supreme court favor the executive.
At this race of competitiveness, outsiders may enter the race, but they all sluff compared to Ron. Still this competition is designed to prepare them to beat Obama. They may look like fools, but the idea is to mix it up enough, humiliate themselves enough, to know what it takes or at least doesn’t take, to win and beat Obama. Maybe other candidates will enter.
Mitt actually lost Iowa, turns out, by 34 votes, what does that say about him?
Mitt V. Barry, ; No one is going to vote. No one really likes Barrack anymore, but will vote him to avoid the warlike republicans, and no one really likes Mitt, who seems to have no beliefs, only to do what is required of him, yet people will vote Mitt just to avoid Barry. So it will be very polarizing and negative, insofar as no one likes their candidate, but hates the other side.
Newt is showing his toughness again in South Carolina.
Rick dropped out a long time ago, but maybe was checking the theory that with the news and internet so prevalent, you don’t need to campaign much to be voted on. I mean why not just stay on your state ballots, don’t campaign, just get your message out on the news, until a state favorable comes along to you. Then see what happens.
John Huntsman dropped out. I liked him.
See, were we to council and circle and discuss as people, and know the kingdom of god, and understand the term the kingdom of heaven, or work with spirituality in its myriad of forms, and actually plan and act according, regarding what we need, and how to get it, both spiritually and materially, and this is how republicans should relate, well, crime would stop, if we were all talking to one another about what we need and how to get it in a time-valuing quality way; even obesity would slow down, as we could arrange excercise and games; the waste of earth would be greatly reduced, because people are caring. So all the sacrifice society is designed to allow, would be reduced. And the daily pay to the miserable universe greatly reduced. So what would happen. The secret in pagan times was that there was frequent sacrifice, of animals and humans. Now we allow a removed society, and written word that abjures truth, to work sacrifice through the seemingly natural bent of society. So if through spirituality and peaceful assembly we can secure the kingdom of god, or say the new york times writes that it all HAS been a lie, and the people and people in power all really the inert unsentient kingdom of god, created because the actual sacrifice of humans too hard and difficult; and through that trumpet of truth, the truth is proclaimed, all the bad things will stop. So then what? Will the miserable universe smite us with an asteroid? Is the psychic power of the faint world of the universe capable of hurting me or humans, or removing the kingdom of heaven farther from earth? This is what republicans must be focused on to relate in some meaningful way regarding society and making our country better.
Its a miserable low down thing, having to sacrifice each day for the beauty and nature of earth, in hopes one day things will be allowed. It seems there are two sides, a dark serious side manifesting the mandate of sacrifice, and a low enjoying side, that rests, and is quiet and lives a bit, near the kingdom of god.
Mitt is at 47% among 6 candidates in the granite state, because he’s lived in Massachussetts. But Wildcats to me seem a little suspicious of 3.2 beer people. Like Iowa, New Hampshire is a quiet, gracious state. I honestly don’t see Mitt winning New Hampshire. Though he does seem a quiet gracious man, I don’t know him that well.
Rick Santorum, who tied for first in Iowa, is now accussed of getting rich through his political connections, and sponsoring bills in exchange for benefits. Obviously most of the candidates are a little removed from what I wrote about above. Rick is the youngest of them, I believe, as far as that goes, and he is from Pennsylvania, and I can’t remember one president from there.
It’s the New Hampshire wildcats? How would freud say that interprets the elections? Wildcats symbolize the few and far between that controll everything with a lone wolf style, in that wildcats are not specie-minded so much like badgers, hawkeyes and ducks, but potent individually.
Campaigning in some states, it helps to appeal to their university mascots, like hawkeyes, ducks and badgers, as some pagan culture that glides higher than the kingdom of god, and knows the kingdom of god, without getting bogged down in the lack of energy of the kingdom of god.
In other words, to win in Iowa, realize the hawkeyes are gliding, and set them gliding on a good path. Realize badgers stick together and advocate closeness and bond. You an appeal to mascots and state rivalies in a very interesting political way, that takes the unity of the people for granted, thus enabling the common sense we the people want to see.
Herm is out, michelle is out, Rick Perry doesn’t look so good anymore. It really looks like the whole point of this almost dysfunctional practice, is to mix it up enough for the best candidate to win, which is Ron Paul, despite academia.
Too often the primaries are over after a handful of states. That clearly makes no sense. So it is good, there are still a handful in the race. We are curious to see what New Hampshire has to say. They like Mitt because he is moderate, but New Hampshire, and its friend Maine, are conservative places that don’t like bs and respect integrity.
Its important to clear up this hawkeye thing. Yes a hawkeye has a hawk in it, but there is no such thing as a hawkeye, other than the eye of a hawk. So basically iowans are not hawks, but the eyes of hawks, as such representing the trajectory of the hawk, a sentience as well.
Now this is hard to get, but being the eye of a hawk, is a slightly weird nick name. After much thought, I conclude it is a reference to Jupiter. Jupiter is always gliding along on its trajectory. Jupiter, is always slightly put down by Romans who worship Mars. Jupiter seems slightly sentient in its own way. The hawkeye stands for jupiter, and being guided by the planets.
The relevance of the kingdom of god
The candidates don’t relate to the people. I went to Iowa. My readers may not believe it, but I took amtrak to Mount Pleasant Iowa for a weekend, precisely to see what this Iowa idolization was all about. (I also read a Zane Grey novel, The Dude Ranger, where the young hero was from Iowa). These are extra steps other N.J. bloggers don’t take, I want to remind you.
In Mount Pleasant, to mix with the people, who could sort of tell I wasn’t from Iowa, but couldn’t guess what state I was from, I played basketball in the rec center, and went to the two local bars, which are right next to each other.
All this stuff about politics and Iowa is hyperbole, is fake media fraud. These people did not put on the debate on the TV, watching instead “The Ten Worst whatever countdowns”.
They care about child-rearing, agriculture, hunting. The candidates don’t mean much to them, and you see how national politicians don’t know each state enough, to know how to help the economy.
The people are confused by the dominance of blacks in some sports.
If the candidates understood the kingdom of god, they would be more relevant. What would be discussed, in local peaceful assemblies, would, you see, be that earth has long been a very nice place, in a universe that is not so nice. And for whatever reason, be it the threat of asteroids, or some psychic power, earth has to daily sacrifice to the universe, for the nature of each day. Thus a long time ago, we began to transform humans in the womb to the kingdom of god, because that is easier to sacrifice. And we created an insensible society, so that sacrifice can have historical, cultural, societal, ostentatious causes.
This is why society is so bad, and its correction irrelevant to the candidates. The candidates do not deal with, nor do we know of society at this level. It is very sad. People are held back with weight problems, there is crime everyday, we do not do agriculture naturally, to stay in shape, nor excercise joyously. It does not make sense, nor can be claimed to. It is designed for the sense of the kingdom of god as an easier form to sacrifice. T
This is the real politic, and what there a politician would discusss. If you don’t understand the kingdom of god, you are missing the capstone to improving society.
Rick Santorum made it to the top of the hill of ice, so they all made it, and they all slide down. It’s almost like chivalry, where they all take turns, see what they got, see what they don’t got. This is a true practice run for the the presidency. Meanwhile Obama’s getting a long bye week and gonna come in cold. You gotta practice, anyone other democrat out there could be like a practice squad.
Ron Paul went through a backdraft, and I’d like to explain it. See Ron would cut the military. None of the others have that independent charactor. And the military is a historical force, and history controlls contemporary forces like the media, the news, academics, which are written forces, words on paper that create a reality for us. So the military is against Ron, because Ron would cut the military, and the budget would be closer to balanced. None of the others get that. You’d think cutting the military is a very bottom line appeal, and active thinkers get that. But academics, and controlled by the media which is controlled by history which is controlled by the military, so the backlash has an academic basis, not a strong basis. It is something that will flip around. Ron Paul is obviously not a racist nazi, he’s a 70 something doctor who has voted with his conscience and beliefs in congress for decades.
A prime insensible belief, along with the insensibility of war, in the face of reason, is the notion race doesn’t matter, is not important. For mileniums, just up to a thousand years ago, all continents lived tribally and inbred, and produced unique culture.
There are some issues like fast food, where if blacks and whites each had their own flank in the battle for healthy good food, they would be more successful than one intermixed flank. There is power to symbiotic racial difference. But like war, that is hard to fathom.
It is so hypocritical for conservatives to complain about the deficit and not cut the military. Likewise, common sense says if a lot of defense contractors lose their jobs, they must do something useful, to raise the quality of our society.
After Newt got piled on, Ron was acussed of racism. All he questioned was the way to promote racial harmony, and if that can come from the government. It would be nice if Newt showed some toughess like a cowpuncher on the red river and laughed at the hard wind that blew on him.
I think the problem with Michele was part a lack of femininity, female magik this country needs, and pagan times had. Her household, which is so important, of foster kids and a strange husband, is more important than people think.
The thing about Mitt, to me, is that he embodies this fear, of having handlers, with their own agenda, for whom Mitt will do whatever they tell him to, in an manicured coiffed sort of way. Many presidents seem to have had handlers and unseen agenda producers, who act through a politician, by keeping him in an abused, not thoughtful state. Sometimes, sexual abuse and depravity are means to this controll, I fear.
Per se, there is nothing wrong with a moderate republican president, if you have a hard core senate working with you. But there is no clear message or symbol coming from Mitt, other than he is easier on the eye than others; and so people complain about a lack of substance. In that sense he is like a republican clinton, trying to do the least amount of damage, wherein people clamor for the most amount of good.
Let’s talk about Ron
Let’s talk about Ron. I’d vote for him because he is unique: A rare good rare person. He’s like a song: Maybe not the hymm you sing in church, but he’s got a melody, refrains, interesting stanza’s, and drawls a bit like a country singer.
Do I think everyone of his stanzas is right? No. Absolutely not. Under no circumstances do I, or anyone I know believe in Everything Ron Paul believes in. For instance our borders: We got nine million unemployed, nine million illegals taking our productive jobs, we need nine million feet of fence. Britain, Europe, they don’t make it easy to work there. If you go to Britain and take a job, they’ll deport you. Mexico, I’ve heard doesn’t allow nonmexicans to own land in Mexico. This is about respect. No nationality is going to respect you if you let another caste of citizens take your jobs, or disparage the vitality and experience of those jobs. And when you are not respected, bad things can happen.
Heroin. Heroin is a poison, only the mind-controlled can be fooled by. There is nothing to it that would make anyone come back to it, such is the headache, and illness to it. You can’t ,legalize heroin without a very serious honest effective public campaign against it so people know and enforce wisdom themselves. Because people are fooled by and die from misinformation about heroin.
Abortion is Ok, because in the womb is the transformation to the kingdom of god.
Capitalism. Capitalism is a headless serpent that has drowned and devoured, like a leviathan, the very natural right for each of us to have input about what we consume and how it is produced. With capitalism, not one can excercise the serious discussion that values time and quality over money, or discusses what our needs are, how they are met, and the organization required to meet wisdom. Capitalism is fundamentally alianating thus so, disintegrates community, keeps us from thinking together, enslaves us through a voracious headless serpent.
Capitalism is designed to obscure the kingdom of god, whose comprehension is key to critical organization. And many practicing capitalists can tell you the market is fake, and there are other realities market depends on.
But thats my whole point. Who as president would be easiest to bring the issue of the kingdom of god up to? Clearly someone who thinks and marches to his own spirit, with charactor, and thoughtful consideration.
Capitalism has historically existed as a vehicle of trade between villages and areas; but not necessarily existed within the villages itself, nor been so pure as it does today, centering on trade between towns. It was about procuring what is needed, not production per se. Selling more hamburgers to overweight people is foolish. Advocating excercise, saving time by wisdom, and applying it to quality endeavors, is wise. Capitalism involves everyone, in the wrong way. There is a way to involve everyone in a right way.
Then this whole racism flap is not a high degree of difficulty to beat. Ron could do a brief, “I am not a racist” tour. He could center a chunk of his campaign on his not being a racist and win that domain. He could even say Barry is more quietly racist than he is, and get away with it.
Its not just what you like about a candidate, that’s the positive. There is also the negative, defined as which candidate can best and synthetically and symbiotically-politically stood up to? Clearly Ron is more harmless and easiest to resist, as well as like. And this is an important quality to leadership. Knowing that people can challenge your ideas and you, and encouraging that; as Ron is a doctor and understands the science of challenging theories.
He is a perfectly appropiate foil to the times. The focus of his vision on his ideas, his specificity, leads to a galvanized focus on the issues themselves, which is good for polity and politics all around. By being
so developed and nuanced, right or wrong, he greatly will increase the debate of issues, the well-roundedness of debate, the premiun on wisdom and good.
My advice to him, is pure style points. Identify more with being a doctor. Walk into a room, talk two minutes to an anxious nation about what you think, encourage discussion, and leave. Don’t over exert yourself. Conspicuously enjoy hobbies and off afternoons, as his fb posts do demonstrate an enjoyment of place, people, and particular activity. Promote health and excercise, preventively, as what doctors do. Stand up to fast food, and stand for good food and healthy nutritious eating, as a doctor, that is the main thing, then if we are attacked at least we are all healthy.
The Kingdom of god, logically, professionally, must be brought to the attention of medical practitioners.
Odd how after how the people in any given midwestern state, from Iowa to Wisconsien, seem to subliminally identify with the mascot of their state’s dominant university. What to do about Badgers? About Fighting Illini growling around chicago? And this facet implies no inferiority, but even a limn to something greater… than we Scarlet Knights, who no one has heard of.
Newt, to me, the latest to climb the hill of ice then slide back, looks the best being criticized. I mean they say Newt is essentially corrupt. But he looks smart, and he doesn’t deny what he is, which is better, and taking punches, and defense; whereas Mitt is essentially accused of being a manicured, robotic politician who really doesn’t believe anything himself, and that identity does not look good taking hits. So to me, the ability to take a punch, is something the pundits don’t count; probably ever having had to make their face hard and not take their eye off a fist themselves. How they play defense is extremely important, as any football follower knows. Newt through the weathering of his life, seems to have gone through so much, that he is not really hurt by the attacks. Yet the media fails to notice that politicians can look better under attack, than landing punches, through identity and bonds with the people.
And predictably, Ron, who clearly has the best shot to topple Barry, got to the top of the hill of ice in Iowa, and promptly slid down via accusations of racism. I guess we bettors would say that was predictable.
The charge of being a racist, is almost formulaically easy to beat. You trot out all your minority friends, who say your a really great guy. You behave politely and with pride to black women in interviews, maybe you do Oprah. You deflect attention by asking minorities to focus on blaming whites for an insensible economy. You say the bottom line is a less tiered society with different standards for different peoplies, reducing minorities in prison, and reducing violence. It’s really not hard.
Michele has to likewise make the case a women would be a better president, for their never having been one. That the feminine side to politics, cultivated right, is just the healing and artistry the country needs at this moment.
So with Iowa approaching, the three main stories are, Newt looks good playing defense, which the media misses. It should’t be hard for a good doctor to resolve racist charges, and just of late, Newt, Santorum, Perry, Bachman and Huntsman, failed 10,000 signatures to get on the Virgnia ballot.
Something is amiss here; either the standard to viable candidates is too high, or Virginia is failing to cultivate Republican Candidates for President. It’s like an ultimate rejection of the competition. Here they are, playing as hard as they can, I hope for Ron to win the nomination, and Virginia like wants the whole contest to stop; even though that’s translated from ten thousand signatures. I was in Virginia last year, they are rather top notch, washington based, often having something to do with the defense industry. They are sort of no nonsense people; so unless the other candidates can relate to the people regarding god, or wisdom, or amplify what the people want, Virginia is putting additional pressure to get realistic republicans.
REPORTING LIVE FROM IOWA
Reporting live, from Mount Pleasant Iowa, there is very very little interest in politics. Geezsch the people in N.J. are more interested in politics. It’s obvious the first caucuses in the nation should be rotated. Why the lack of interest? Politics is not very relevant. And the republicans are too uncompassionate war-“mongers” for the people. It’s a common sense, but not conservative state. I ask the people questions, and they give me answers, but they don’t have that ideal of politics dynamically vitalizing polity and society; politics itself don’t have ideal.
Though while at a bar, (where they rejected my request to put the debate on one tv,) I met interesting, compassionate people, and particularily people with agricultural interests; that firmly demarc Iowa’s center as agriculture, from which all the other spokes fly—I met another seemingly important Iowa interest as well; athletics and health.
Now you can go by many things in judging a place: the happiness of the women, the politeness of the men, a hip culture, good food, hotel in the center of town, not outskirts by the highway; but the one I go by, is whether there is a rec center there. Many places don’t have them. The county seats in Iowa do.
So I went there to play some basketball, or shoot hoops; and it shows me, how the adults in the bar, who generally deal with their children, and the young people at the bar, who deal with the older generation at the bar; how that world is different from the rec center world; primarily because the rec center world is much younger; filled with junior hawkeyes, often practicing skills to be great basketball players.
But as I have written about before, there is a problem with the whites sports program at these rec centers. Rather than a clipboard, you sign, enabling a replacement of the losing team with a new team, there are no five on fives or games being played at all. People are either doing drills or shooting around.
The white athletic world is jinx designed, instead of being reasonable, they are over competitive, instead of having fun, they are feeling pressure: it really reminds the difference between pressure packed high school, and relaxed college. And it stems from the metaphysical pressure of the unreasonable domination of sports by estimable minorities, who by the way, I do love to run the court with, because they have a psychic sense, as pleasant, as the white system, is abusive and fouls. There are no fouls when good people run the court, because we are men.
So like agriculture, I am sure this is a huge issue to the common sense Iowans. Iowa is a fine state with good people, like missourri. It is interesting seeing the distinction between juvenile and adult cultures; Pressure, as opposed to comfortable grace.
So my style, which may seem bad, but is not, contrasted the white style I saw about, because I’m not really “bad” but the black “pro” game, like the good hippies, has a touch of “bad” to it. And its nice how athletics are ultimately “pretend”.
After people refused to play an iowa v. NJ game, I started to realize how they were all hawkeyes, girl hawkeyes, little young hawkeyes, hawkeye dogs, —- and me a scarlet knight, able to see how our shame regarding N.J. forces us to be stronger.
Of course I have my own unshared troubles as well, which bring me down. I owe uh, is a bit like how everyone is in with everyone, in a sort of mobbed up way; that Iowa must sort and release itself from; into an I O U state, where people owe people for being good, and transcending the bs.
And there is a simple morality to Iowa I noticed, illuminating how my slightly unintentionally snide remarks, are not really the point of wit; the point is to get help. Sure the truth can be spoken; but can you help the truth. Are you capable of rational living; does it start with that; as if, it is all true?
Mount Pleasant Iowa, was very pleasant, more so than rougher and colder Omaha; but maybe pleasant people occur more here, because of the name of the town they are in?
People want to put their heads together locally and figure it all out. That was a tribal rite. Illegally subsumed by mayors, abridging peaceful assembly and reservation of powers to the people.
The real issue includes how fake the market is. Small business people know that. A lot of people inherit farmland. Organics are encouraged though the elimination of jobs we don’t really need. Once we talk about what it takes to survive, you get a better class of products.
But the modern world doesn’t understand how the kingdom of god, is such a dominant fact, that it must be recognized and worked around, to achieve the dealings we want. For if there were productive peaceful assemblies, crime and all the sacrifices and wastes, would considerably go down, and the universe might complain it is not getting the daily payments it wants, and do something.
I also stopped in Omaha two nights, hoping to gain perspective on Iowa. This was a mistake. The little towns in Iowa are much nicer than Omaha.
Omaha is from like 30 years ago. Donut shops that open from 5am to 11am, with 50 cent donuts and 50 cent coffee, and people who know politics, talking to people who don’t. I said people like Sarah Palin because she is hot, and the people concurred. But you never get the talking heads discussing if it is her sex appeal that is her political appeal, though its obviously about 70% of it.
It’s also very cold in Omaha. I said to blacks at the train station, it doesn’t get any colder than this, and they’d say, yes it does, we are on our way to Michigan.
Subliminally, or in the space within the space, or in the crannies of omaha culture, the reality of the kingdom of god is very evident. It explains everything. It preexists the “greed” that wipes out the donut shops. There is a psychic awareness and aura to parts of Omaha that completely understands the economic life does not make sense. This is a bible belt understanding of capitalism as a stage and opportunity from which to reach a greater stage of spiritual reality, and material opportunity, through reason, galvanized by understanding christian terms.
Again, the elections seem irrelevant in Omaha. People are into god, not war. People might understand there is enough land in these states, for each to be their own country. Then powerful politicians would focus on their own state, rather than 50 of them. That’s why I can’t be republican. I don’t believe we should be a republic, but smaller nations of regions or state.
(How to travel in Omaha and Missouri)
Look at Parks, Churches, and rent a bike if no ice on road. These places you can walk from into rural areas. They have donut shops with cheap coffee, natives of the town, hopefully including the post man, drop in. These donut places are like home to some places.
It’s the people, not the place. If I took a hotel room downtown, which I couldn’t find I wouldn’t have found the donut shop after ariving 5am eastward via amtrak. Omaha is right down route 80 from north jersey.
What you have to understand is that for all intents and purposes, this is the bible belt. It took me 3 years at 10-20 pages a week, of reading the old and new testament from page 1, including the apochryphilia. You relate to people, in a way of each having their own ministry, as well as possibly in a gaullic sense, having clients, and people who they help, and people who rely on them. This isn’t “Romans”, it’s “Gauls”.
And Christianity is the passing religion.
Soon I am on to Iowa, with three questions. Why can’t we have the caucus in a warmer month? Just kidding, that’s not really one of the questions, though I can’t help but noticing it is 11 degrees out at night. The real first is do these elections have any meaning to you? The second is, “does the kingdom of god and the term, the kingdom of heaven, have any meaning or relevance to you?” And the third is, “If you were president or could legislate, what would you do, what do you want done.”
Now of course I am in Omaha, which while an indian name, is not Iowa; I’d like to say because I made a wrong turn at the missouri river, but really I am here because, ever since, the only time, I went cow-tipping, was in Nebraska, and I have loved the state ever since. That and I’ve always wanted to duck in and check out Nebraska, for which I travel by train from the pacific, to the atlantic.
Ideally, I’d like to ask the nebraskan how good he thinks Iowa will be at dealing with these questions. Though I am prepared to ask the politically-minded nebraskan these questions, I also have a specific koan for the nebraskan; which goes like that. California is controlled by the Asian mind. That’s why things are so messed there.
All right, Newt Gingrich like the red river and john wayne is rising, along with allegations John Wayne never bothered with, and Herm had to drop out; He has the same problem Barrack has; He doesn’t give a whit about his own people and their particular issues we would be sympathetic to, if we could get out of a metaphysic that assumes some normalcy here. So just like I was saying, the whole plan is to make this a horse racing excercise, in hopes of getting stronger by exposing what is lacking in the republican primary: which is essentially simply not doing what the people want; the top of the pyramid shouldn’t be thinking for the people, but merely doing what the baser parts of the pyramid want. The bottom of the pyramid must do the thinking for the pyramid, having more brain power, and then tell the top of the pyramid what to do, the top of the pyramid having more enforcement power.
Secondly, a republican senate stands up to a democratic president; the other way doesn’t happen.
Lastly the supreme court should expand in some proportion to the expansion of members of congress as new states entered the Union automatically. The Western States never had a choice. They don’t understand this federal government in DC thing.
And maybe reduce the length of the presidential term to 2yrs or even one. You show what you got. This ain’t a job you are supposed to grow good at.
The one funny thing about Newt is that Sarah Palin is much prettier; she looks better compared to him than anyone else, I think. Her laconic malleability really shows. At this rate Chris Christie could make a surprise appearance in practice for 2016, should the federal government still be running like this then.
There is one candidate, who needs to feel loved, and could beat Obama handily; those guts, are Ron Paul’s. It doesn’t matter which direction we go, so long as it gets us there. Ron Paul is a very rare candidate in history. He needs to feel accepted now, so he doesn’t learn about it into his presidency.
Who would think the bar to defeat Barrack is so high? The republicans cater to the media, they see no other way to win; and in 48 hrs the media has reported a Tea Party Group wants Michelle to drop out, Rick wants to give 500,000 to each millionaire, and Herm has been so out of it as to sexually harass, and reported on none of Ron’s innovations.
They need a whole new slate of ten candidates. But at least they can do is get rid of the most ridiculous candidates. Now the three most ridiculous candidates are Mitt, Rick, and Herm. And they are also the three in front. So, the symbolism either means the media system supports the most ridiculous, or the most ridiculous are most ridiculous because of front-running scrutiny. You gotta be good, to look bad, so they say. Jacks or better, just to play.
Dems better pres though still poor via actual communist system we live in, but more aware of the flow, whereas republicans at national level become warlike, and thats the real sin, maybe Mitt can deliver no war, via his mormon faith, but for whatever metaphyisic, these republicans consistently come off as warlike and angry internationally.
So they rock on: Cain, who has a mlk chocolate wife, is hit by sexual harrassment claims from whiteand milk chocolate women; if there is one thing to take from Barry; it’s that if you don’t care about the issues of your race, you lack grounding, yet Herm is still good in the polls, as is Mitt, and now Newt has joined them, and Perry, while fading, still has it.
But the debate on foreign policy; this is the republicans great problem; warlikeness. Nixon, Reagan, the bushes, were noticeably more warlike and less peaceful than Jimmy, Bill, and even Barry. This is grounded in an history that has eschewed the sprititual, the kingdom of god, for the implication Humans are incapable of living wisely and peacefully. It is hard to avoid ignorance on the world stage. If marriage is understood as towards the reproduction of the kingdom of god, then earth united by a similiar fate, from the universe the media drowns out with disguise.
The democrats move in the system better and seem less prone to the lies of history, though liberalism is known to buy into historical lies.
See I don’t think Republicans are meant to be the president in 2012, because they have been horrible at presidential power since Eisenhower: even though he presided over the inception of a TV-Corporate age of today, where jobs are not about producing, and people stare at a screen. It is suspect Reagan is praised so much, when I feel he preyed on people’s fears and also ushered in the yuppie, and furthered us from the ideals of the sixties movement; and Eisenhower a genuine war hero in a time of prosperity, forgotten.
Nixon was horrible, unable to deal with a war history has shown unnecessary, because he, I believed, was troubled by his killing of Kennedy, who he reviled for destroying him in 1960. This communistic attribute of murdering political rivals did not come out for fear it would damage the face of this great nation. Suffice to say Nixon was obviously psychotic, with his dirty tricks, and traumatized by his own evil.
Both Bushes had wars on their hands and played to the military industrial complex Eisenhower warned against in his farewell address, a complex, knowledge of the kingdom of god abjures, is not really real; but to the ignorant.
Complain about Obama all you want, GWB brought down the curve of presidency like no other, batting after a man whose father gave you the presidency upon a governorship, with nothing more than folksy style, and an utterly unnecessary war in Iraq, and initiated the bail-out fad; no we should be commiserating with Obama for being at a particularily weak point in the tradition of presidency.
Further, as I’ve said, bipartisan speaking, the repubs stand up better to a dem pres, than democrati senators to a republican president. But more so, Republican Presidents have played to the worst of power, continuosly since 1968.
Yet the alternative should be the people’s party, the democrats, yet the democrats are like communists, by which I specifically mean, just another subset of people in power masquerading as the people; and yes at a national level, they may be less prey to the follies of power than the traditional america republican.
America was grounded in classical antiquities, (most known through the roman republic) of a check and balance between the three powers. The Roman Republic achieved a judicial office called Tribunes, who has the right to veto legislation as unjust, and prosecute evil legislatures and presidents, or Consuls, as they were called.
These Tribunes had to be from, and chosen by the people, or specifically, the second and lower class known as The Plebes, (as opposed to the Patricians). These Tribunes utterly failed to show Roman Republic politics and democracy as working, utterly failed to project the wisdom of the people working together, and utterly failed to end the Republic’s tradition of yearly war. Like today’s democratic party, there was something about being in power, that corrupted the perhaps once good origin, into foolishness that dragged down the republic.
And yes the structure of American life with its regulation of education, and ignorant economy, is communist and totalitarian. Still, many democrats look very good compared to the medium O. Why isn’t there any challenge to this most disapointing of presidents from his own party? Because Obama is in charge of the party now, at least theoretically.
Why do the designates and parties of the people, turn into a leadership remarkably similar to the ill qualities of leadership they opposed? There is a metaphysic designed to keep the wisdom and natural order of the people from asserting itself in history; to keep the story line of human society in this depressing veil; this is the story we follow.
Moreover, you can not view the American Presidency, without citing two positive aspects of the Republic’s presidency. One was that the executive office lasted only a year. This was greatly dynamic. The disappointing could be voted out swiftly. The constant turnover enabled better preparation for executive office, many senators became presidents, and many ex-presidents were able to work their honor for the good of the Republic. The 4 year term is ridiculous in this context, argued for as a conservative force for order and stability in the nascence of the great nation, but absolutely holding country back now.
The second was that the executive office could be run by committee. Anywhere from 2-10 executives could occupy the executive office together, though one or two were often pointedly more respected. But this understanding of executive committees rather than one man, seems a positive and dynamic structure to federal government.
So the republican primary candidates are working it out, trying to get stronger, but still no one is looking great, though Ron Paul by far the best jockey; and in the chaos, Newt is looking great; as having a mind for what the whole thing stands for. And if you look at the movie The Red River, with John Wayne, you see a character who very much looks like Newt Gingrinch, and suggests to me, The Red River portends Newt’s presidency. I mean he is soft enough to beat Obama; and what would he have to stand up to?
Actually one of the best things I did in my life was become a republican, in New Jersey. No more false identifying with dysfunctional democrats. No more blind allegiance to a party actually separating the people from power. Now remember, Princeton, where I lived, hasn’t had a councilperson in Princeton Borough or Princeton Township who has not been a Democrat since 1992: a one party total entity if there ever was one. No check on one party by another. It’s in the tradition of Frank Hague, of Jersey City, who controlled all government jobs and demanded a 3% kickback in his multi-decade reign.
Becoming Republican meant having polite people to talk with about any issue; happy hours and breakfasts where coffee and drinks bonded a`bit. No bad reaction to any ideas, just understanding and doing as able.
But now you must know why I can’t be republican; the connundrum, and why I feel allied to the tea party, (and compare how the tea party has fared against the republican, while the green party has failed next to the democrats). Because I can not organize the Republican Party because my definition of a republic is a state that unites diverse regions that might otherwise not be naturally linked by a common state. The point of the federal government was to keep the states from conflicting with each other, as Europe was prone to. That need has passed. There is no longer a genuine urgent need for the republic, thus, I could not organize a republican party in good faith, so I can not be republican, by definition.
Ron Paul does not understand a border fence? Peace, love, people knowing god together, fence. Don’t you feel sorry for those mexicans sucked over into here. Shouldn’t they be concerned about improving their great nation?
Ron Paul should not be photographed at fast food places, gotta get fast food is bad, ended small eateries, reduced choice and standard of cuisine. Integrity. If I ran for president I would run against fast food and for good food, nutrition and health.
Occupy Wall St is becoming the democratic party, insofar as the party of the people: and the democratic party is revealed as an obstacle not conduit between the people and government and good interests.
The republicans do not know how to take on OWS. They are amazed and intimidated. It so much reminds them of the tea party, but even badder, if you can mean it.
Where is the spirituality best going to come from? The republicans, or Occupy Wall St?
What has always held society back is lack of literacy regarding the kingdom of god, or whatever spiritual terminology one makes relevant in daily life, to good purposes.
Republicans, I believe, are grounded in spirituality, yet removed by their plane from much spirituality. But they are aware of it.
OWS seems to have some spirituality in it, and it seems spirituality is more likely to come from them rather than from the encouragement by republican forces.
Michele said she would build a border fence. That is good. It is patronizing and condescending to allow the exploitation of poor workers, and assume they have no obligation to their country, or that they can’t make it in their country. That is an issue I agree with with her
Obama was a part of the success in libya. Lets remember he is following George Bush. Both of them seemed a bit threatened and coerced; though.
Ron Paul is the one choice. He has a plan, no one else does. The bottom line is not which plan, but what will work, because probably many plans can work. He doesn’t understand peace and love like he should, too much stock in the world on paper, needs to see a rainbow gathering; but his ideas and sensibilities are much much higher than the others.
He has a plan, the others are just trying to be president. I can see him following Obama. I really can. THe people who don’t understand him, his independence and inclusion, are the bad side of American politics. Again, he’s a little two dimensional, but he is by far the best and most cogent and event trustworthy.
Charactor is so important, because charactor can deal. Really we have to vote for charactor right? Charactor and making sure primary slates include charactors we like.
Of course one good thing about no one challenging Obama in the primary, is there will be a lot more donations for him, as he is the only democratic choice. Which is wrong, because he really has proven himself to be a .200 hitter. Yet maybe the bottom line is enough funds to beat the republicans. And yet I can’t see how democratic leaders don’t talk to him about getting his act together or country. Except that the elected official, is in charge, is the head of the party, so there is by this idealty, no democrat behind the scenes capable of talking reasonably with Obama. The way money really isn’t real, is on paper, is not used by the kingdom of god, yet the dems seemed governed in their campaign thinking, at least unconsciously, the way the elected official really need not be the head of the serpent at all, and surely someone got Barrack to stay in Iraq and bail out banks, playing by some arificial formal rules, Barrack has got to stay because it saves money and he is the one in charge, so its formality to try to stay in office. This is obviously flawed reasoning. For if you say the elected official is the party, don’t you realize how ridiculously that contradicts the notion of political party?
So first Bachman gets to the top, then Mitt takes over, then Perry, then Cain, then Mitt, with Paul closing around, and Santorum and Newt about— so the pattern is one surges to the top than drops back under scrutiny. Nice long race, being sneaky won’t win, getting along will.
The fact that they all looked weak, means startting weak is going to end strong, all the competition is very good.
What are the principle’s of Newt?
Perry is just there to remind you of how corrupted Bush was with the military industrial complex; which by the kingdom of god, may be discounted. Just how do they control these people’s minds. Does God go along with it to insure an evil world?
Why don’t the democrats challenge Obama in the primary? It would make the party stronger, right, exercise, practice. Any democrat looks more mature than Barrack, ok, maybe not that, maybe more seasoned, certainly Obama won Libya, after bush behavior abroad. Most democrats look good compared to Obama. Why isn’t he challenged?
It can’t be that he would be so easily defeated in the primary and the new dem party candidate would then be easy to defeat in the general election. Its because elections are so made up, by incumbent power, that incumbents aren’t challenged by their own party, they are their own party; and this makes sense only to people too close to it, step back and see offering slates of candidates is always a good idea. Likewise, more republicans should have challenged Bush.
I liked Mitchell Bachman, but then I am for the environment and abortion, that she has particular issues means she is like the tea party, which is an issue based party. If you understand what The Kingdom of God means, you know abortion is not taking a life.
Mitt Romney and 3.2 beer and stealing all the women so they can have many wives? Mormonism, god bless em, their bible says Jesus went around preaching against alcohol in south America as the crucifixion was just an end to his book there.
Herm Cain, relationships, and fast food? Where’s the integrity? Where are people running on the real issues, anti fast food, kingdom of god is real, agrarianism, local peaceful assemblies by people, letting people handle criminal matters? Let the courts handle treaties or analyze laws, and examine folly and corruption of officials.
