Why Ron Paul Is THE Objectivist Moral Imperative
Submitted by atlascott on Tue, 2010-03-23 20:42
The answer is context.
The largest danger to America right now is from within.
Totalitarianism, Federal Bankruptcy, the rule of man/crony capitalism and de facto destruction of the Constitution are, far and away, the most destructive and pressing issues we face.
NOT ensuring the right to gay marriage, NOT ensuring the right to on-demand, government-paid abortion, NOT ensuring constant ongoing wars in the Middle East.
We are approaching catastrophe, and none of the issues recounted in the above sentence matter, and all of the issues in the sentence which precede it are.
The Tea Party Movement is dead. It was irrelevant in the Health Care bill debate, and has been discredited by the Left and the GOP, each falsely, and for reasons of political power. Anger is great but it is not a political platform.
Objectivism has failed, epically, in creating a political movement, platfrom, or politician.
Sara Palin does not have the ideas or the gas.
Glenn Beck will likely not enter politics.
Solutions to these problems, it is clear, do not spring from within the GOP. Mitt Romney? Preposterous.
There is ONE and ONLY ONE recognizable figure on the national stage with a consistent, pro-liberty voting record who has a large national fan-base and any chance whatsoever in a national election.
That man is Ron Paul. RON PAUL.
In a world of corruption and decay, there has NEVER been been a simpler or clearer choice, in context.
It is Ron Paul, or withdraw in futility, as a Gail Wynand or in brave defiance, as a Billy Beck.
The number of roads from which to choose are narrowing.
This is it: understand the context of this crisis, and act.
Contribute to Ron Paul's campaign, support him. Objectivists and Objectivism, support a religious man for the highest office in the land, because he is PRINCIPLED in a way no other candidate is or has been for years.
He is the last and only hope for the Republic in a national election.
