Ron Paul is to Government Spending as Moshe Feiglin is to the Oslo Peace Process

Ron Paul and Moshe Feiglin; both libertarian, both trying to change the course of history.

There comes a time in every man’s life when he has to make a fundamental decision about the direction his life will take. This point can be called the “free will” turning point of a person’s life that happens very rarely, usually only once in a lifetime. It delineates a turning point when someone is finally faced with the decision about what kind of person he will be. Once made, the choice can only be changed with extreme difficulty.

The same can be said for countries. There comes a point in every country’s life when that country has to make a fundamental decision about which direction it will take, how the country will define itself.

As Ron Paul repeatedly states (for there really is nothing he says that isn’t repeated), America made her decision in 1913 as to what kind of country she was going to be, and that is a country with an unstoppable and ever expanding central government.

1913 introduced the income tax and the Federal Reserve to America, which established the precedent that not only could the government print money whenever it wanted, but it could actually take away whatever percentage of your income from you that it wanted as well. This paved the inexorable path to the erosion of the gold standard and the adoption of money backed by…the word of the Government.

Such was the road paved for big government in America, and now, not only are Americans OK with the fact that they don’t own their own incomes except by government benevolence; some actually expect, even DEMAND that the government take MORE of their money. And not only are Americans OK with the fact that a group of 12 people can conspire in secret meetings to print trillions of dollars in currency, effectively devaluing the money that people have in their bank accounts. Americans are actually THRILLED when the Fed says they are going to “do more” to “stimulate” the economy by running the printing presses.

America made a decision in 1913 on big government. To change that direction requires not simply a change in style. It requires a 180 degree paradigm shift in the way America thinks about itself as a country. It will require huge amounts of pain when the country realizes that it’s entitlement system is broken, that it is not all-powerful, that it can no longer pass out checks like water. This requires another free will decision about its own identity, and as we said at the beginning of this post, free will decisions are rarely made twice in a lifetime, be it of an individual, or of a country.

When America decided on Big Government in 1913, that paved the way for that government’s hubris in assuming that she runs the world and can meddle in global affairs with impunity, without declaring war, without consulting Congress, just on a presidential whim go in and do something.

As for Israel, our problem isn’t fiscal. Unlike America, Jews have a constant fear that they are about to be destroyed, so being fiscally irresponsible is not an option for us. Our problem is our sense of self.

In 1993, Israel made a free will decision. When she signed the Oslo Accords with a people that claimed we are living in its land and not our own land, she made the decision that Israel is not Jewish land. From that point on, everything Israel has done has been on the premise that every Jew here is an occupier of Arab land.

Every time we are attacked, we withdraw. Every time we withdraw, we are attacked. And then we tell everyone that we want to give the land away, but that we’re worried we’ll get killed if we do. Every political party in Israel is built on the premise that we have no choice but to give away our country. Right and Left strive together towards the same goal, for there is no alternative without a complete paradigm shift. Just as both Democrats and Republicans strive towards big government, Likud, Labor, and Kadima strive towards Oslo.

To change the Oslo perspective will take another free will decision by Israel as to the purpose of its existence as the Jewish State. The only one trying to make this paradigm shift is Moshe Feiglin.

Feiglin, like Ron Paul with the Republicans, is running in the main “Right Wing” party, the Likud, which once stood for Israel as the land of the Jewish People. Ron Paul and Moshe Feiglin are both despised and feared by their respective partys’ establishment. Both Ron Paul and Moshe Feiglin are trying to bring their parties back to their roots. Both Ron Paul and Moshe Feiglin even bike several miles every morning.

Both Ron Paul and Moshe Feiglin are trying to do the impossible and change the way their countries think about themselves.

And both Ron Paul and Moshe Feiglin want America to stop giving foreign aid to Israel. Read Feiglin’s position on this here.

Finally, both Ron Paul and Moshe Feiglin know this: If their respective countries continue in the paths that they are on now, the future of the free world is quite dim.

But I suspect that both know the following as well: At some point, both will wake up. The only question is, how much will we all have to lose before they both do.

Whether we like it or not, America and Israel are all that’s left of the free world, and both countries are in existential quandaries. Both, with God’s help, will get back to their roots and find themselves, with the help of Ron Paul and Moshe Feiglin, who I hope in the very near future will become very close friends.

The only way Ron Paul can win

As crazy as that commercial was, it's still the status quo

There’s only one way Ron Paul can win this election and become the next President of the United States. And no, he doesn’t even need to win the Republican nomination. Though it certainly would be nice if he did.

No – the only way Ron Paul can win, regardless of whether or not he becomes the GOP nominee, is if the global economy collapses before the elections. Meaning, a full blown economic disaster the likes of which has never been seen before on this planet. If it doesn’t happen in time, Herman Cain or Mitt Romney or Barack Obama will be elected, spend more money, and expand the bubble that will eventually burst and collapse anyway. So let’s all pray it happens sooner rather than later.

I’ll explain exactly what the bubble is in numbers in a moment. First, let me answer the question, “Why does the bubble have to burst first? Can’t people just wake up and vote for Ron Paul?”

The answer is that Ron Paul is and always will be the “other” in any election. Rick Perry will go up and down because people like him one day, and then get bored of him the next day. The same can be said of Herman Cain. One day people think he’s cool, the next day he puts out an insane commercial of his campaign manager smoking a cigarette and blowing it into the camera. If Cain falls because of this, then no, Ron Paul will not suddenly rise. The votes may go to Gingrich instead, to Romney, or maybe even back to Perry, but not to Paul.

Everyone else running for president is basically the status quo. Whoever wins will be the one who people happen to think is the coolest one or the neatest one or the most intriguing or whatever. It’ll be a game of luck between all of them to see who can slip up the other, who can make the least gaffes, who can spit out the most catch phrases etc. The one who wins will be the one lucky enough to look and sound the smoothest, and that’s all.

The people voting are already settled on the status quo. They just need to agree about which status quo candidate has best hair, and then that status quo candidate will win. And then one of the status quo candidates, either Barack Obama or whatever Republican, will win.

The vast majority of voters in this primary know full well that Ron Paul is NOT the status quo. That’s why they will NEVER vote for him. He wants to take the country in a complete 180, to make actual real cuts, and then really actually truthfully shrink the government, end all wars overseas, and balance the damn budget. Everybody knows that if he is elected, he will ACTUALLY do it, which is what everyone is afraid of. It’s the unknown.

So the only way they’ll ACTUALLY vote for him, is if they realize that the status quo is already dead, the show is over, and the people are forced to actually change the direction of the country and the world.

Right now Americans are in pain, but they’re not panicking. Yet. That’s why they still want the status quo. But I read two days ago on Bloomberg the following, and here’s the bubble in actual concrete numbers:

World GDP is approximately $65 trillion annually. That means, every year, the planet produces $65 trillion worth of goods and services. The worldwide derivatives market, which is the amount of money placed in bets through various financial instruments against what they think the market will do in a given period of time, is estimated to be valued at – get this –

$1.5 QUADRILLION. That’s one-and-a-half THOUSAND TRILLION dollars. I have never in my life heard of or read about that amount of money. It is inconceivable. This number is literally, like the Tetragrammaton, unfathomable. What it means is that theoretical money, such as the value of a country’s debt, or a fund backed by a mortgage (which is somebody’s debt) or a fund that will only have value if the stock market goes up to a certain point or down to a certain point, this THEORETICAL MONEY that banks and institutions and corporations are all hiding under their corporate mattresses, is about 23 times the value of the ENTIRE PLANET.

What that really means is this: This money doesn’t actually exist. It’s fiction. And the entire planet is backed up with this paper garbage that people only pretend is money, put it on their balance sheets, and everything looks swell.

But all it will ever take for a QUADRILLION dollar crash is for something to slip. Say…like Greece.

If Greece falls, then all the fake THEORETICAL money that they stuffed in banks in the form of debt that they promised to pay back with money they don’t have, will crumble. Then the banks that hold that debt will have to admit that it isn’t worth anything, and they crumble. Then the people who invested in those banks to give them money and buy their own debt, like Italy…their investments crumble, and it starts a domino effect of people and countries and corporations having to admit that the theoretical money they stashed away doesn’t really exist.

And the bubble bursts. It’s the biggest bubble in the history of the planet. What happened in ’08 was only the bubble getting bigger and growing on the backs of sovereigns instead of banks. It just shifted one tier higher, that’s all.

I don’t know what will happen when this thing explodes, but it will be worse than anything the world has ever known economically. And when it does, nobody will want the status quo ever again. They’ll want Ron Paul, whether he’s the republican nominee or not.

There’s simply no other way he can win. And if it doesn’t happen in time, then we’ll have clueless bum in the White House who will have absolutely no idea how to handle it when it does. So let’s hope it collapses in time for the people to elect the right man.

Listen to this starting from 12:15.

 

Is Ron Paul Anti Semitic?

When the Fed is finally audited and the US finds out how much money was stolen, it won't look good that Greenspan and Bernanke are both Jewish.

Before I get into the question in depth and why it is even asked, the quick answer is no. The question itself is almost meaningless, since the term “Anti Semitic” has lost almost all of its meaning in the decades since Europe tried to exterminate the Jewish people in the 40’s. At this point, calling someone anti Semitic is the equivalent of calling that person a doodoo head. It really lacks any serious definition, means a million things to a million different people, and is about as useful as Jenine Garofallo calling you a racist if you don’t like Obama. It ends any serious debate.

So let’s narrow the question down to something definable. Does Ron Paul dislike Jews? No. Does he think that Jews are trying to take over the world? No. Does he think Israel is responsible for the Iraq, Afghanistan, and Lybian Wars? No.

The reason Jews think twice when they think of Ron Paul is that so many of his followers fit a more broad definition of “anti Semitic”. Let’s not even call it that. Let’s just say many of Ron Paul’s followers hate Israel.

The reason is fairly obvious why Israel haters would join up with Ron Paul. Paul is the only candidate who wants to end all foreign aid, to Israel as well as everyone else in the world. So pretend you hate Israel for a second or pretend you are actually a bona fide neo Nazi or something similar. Who would you vote for? Obviously Ron Paul.

Taking a quick look at Ron Paul’s friends, you can see fairly quickly that many of them genuinely hate Israel, or at least give platforms to those who really detest the Jewish State.

Take Lew Rockwell for example, Paul’s former campaign chief of staff. Does Rockwell hate Jews? No. In fact, he founded the Ludwig von Mises institute, named for the Jewish Austrian economist. The guy is his hero, and he is Jewish. And no, Mises was not some self-hating Jew like Torquemada or Karl Marx (both Jews).

What Lew Rockwell is, is very dubious and mistrusting of Israel. This is clear through the people he invites to contribute to his website, LewRockwell.com, such as Eric Margolis, who has mentioned the possibility that the Mossad was behind 9/11 and that Israel instigated the Iraq War for its own benefit and other such wacky nonsense. There’s also Michael Scheuer, a former CIA agent who really hates Israel in a very clear sense of hate. If you’ve ever heard Scheuer speak about Israel and you’re Jewish, it can make your skin crawl. I mean the guy really sounds creepy with the power he attributes to the Jewish people and their purported ability to lead the White House around on a leash using the all powerful AIPAC.

On everything else, Scheuer’s good. But he is unquestionably in the Ron Paul crowd, and regarding Israel and Jews as a nation, he is a “doodoo head”, to stick to prior terminology.

Hunt around the major Ron Paul hubs like DailyPaul.com or ronpaulforums.com, and you’ll find plenty of hatred for Israel especially. Around the time of flotilla, Paulian hubs were abuzz with Israel bashing hatred.

This is all perfectly fine by me. One of the good things about finally having your own country back is that you no longer have to deal with people hating you by crying to the local bishop, pope, or political leader. You can take matters into your own hands. By that I mean, ignore it, or try to figure out why it’s happening and stop it. What you should NOT do as a Jew, is whine to another country about it (like America). That just makes it worse.

The reason many Ron Paul supporters hate Israel is that we’re always whining to America for one reason or other because we think America is our father. And Ron Paul supporters really want to be left alone rather than be caught up in entangling alliances with anyone. And what is more entangling than to be caught up in the Jewish state with the oldest nation in the world that never seems to go away and always pisses everyone off for never ever GOING AWAY and always being the center of attention? It’s very unnerving, and you get caught up with the arabs who have the oil and weapons and this and that and they just want out of it.

So then they start wondering why Israel always gets so much attention and instead of looking through history and seeing that the Jews are, have always been, and always will be at the very center of the West as the founders of Christianity, that the West actually worships a Jew as its God and has the Jewish bible as its bible and facing up to the implications of these facts (namely that the Jews are the epicenter of Western culture itself), they just brush it all off and say the Jews are trying to control everything, because why else would they be getting all this attention all the time? And their hatred focuses on Israel because that is the organizing force behind the People. It makes sense superficially.

The fact that Israel does indeed want America to take care of Iran for her infuriates them, and I understand why. They’re approaching fiscal Armageddon and they have to defend a bunch of Jews from some Persians and spend another half trillion dollars they don’t have?

To all the Paulites reading this – we can take care of Iran ourselves. Unlike what the politicians say in Israel, Iran is not a global problem. It is a Jewish problem only, Iran threatened Israel with annihilation, not America, and we’ll have to deal with them ourselves. I don’t want anyone defending me except my family. America is my friend, but Iran is my fight, not America’s.

As for Ron Paul himself, he has every reason to actually be anti Semitic, yet he is not. He hates the Fed, especially Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke, both Jews. You think Madoff was bad in ripping the country off for $50 billion? Just wait till we get the Fed audited and we see how much we got ripped off by the Greenspan and Bernanke administrations!

There is a serious danger that when America finds out about its missing trillions, a real crusade like wave of “doodoo headedness” could break out accusing the Jews of ripping America off for all it was worth.

I don’t think it will happen, but what you should know about Paul himself on these issues is that he does not blame Greenspan, Bernanke, or any other individual. He blames the system, a system that believes you can artificially set the value of money and interest rates to whatever you want and pretend to have a stable economy.

It doesn’t take much to trigger a wave of Jew hatred in the mind of a society whose bible blames Jews for murdering God. We saw that already in the Dreyfus Affair of the 19th century where France went from liberal to rabid in a matter of days.

What I’m saying is that when the Fed does get exposed finally, the only person I’d trust to be in office and be able to stem a tide of Jew hatred that I can only hope will not be unleashed, is Ron Paul.

Everyone else seems to be yaking about Mitt Romney’s lawn and insisting that Israel needs more money from a bankrupt country. Dangerous indeed.

Why Jews should Support Ron Paul

Ron Paul wants to set Israel free of Washington meddling, just like he wants to set America free, too.

For those Paulites finding this blog through a Google alert, this is my first attempt to reach out to all you news-obsessed Paul junkies and say that, yes, I am one of you. I’m probably the only one, however, who lives in what you guys would call the “West Bank”. Hence, a “Settler” of “Samaria,” which is the Jewish term for the upper piece of this land generally thought of as Occupied Palestine. I was born an American Citizen, continue to hold that citizenship, and yes, I am voting by absentee in the Florida primary for Ron Paul.

There are so many reasons why Ron Paul is the absolute best candidate for Israel of any presidential candidate out there. Paul has a serious problem though in presenting his Israel case to the Jews. I will write future posts on how he can win the rest of my stiff-necked people over to his cause, but for now, I will try to explain why Israel needs Ron Paul.

The worst thing Israel can possibly do for itself is to continue to take foreign aid from America. Aside from any other of Paul’s positions, his ending foreign aid would be the best thing for Israel since…I don’t know…sliced pita. There are three reasons for this. The first, and least important, is economic. The second, more important reason is psychological, which perpetuates the middle east conflict. The third, and most important, is moral. Let us deal with the least important first.

Economic: Israel’s annual GDP is over $200 billion. We have a population of about 7 million people. To compare this with the largest Arab country on the planet, Egypt, with a population of 83 million, their GDP, with a population 12x the size of the Jewish State, is less than ours at about $190 billion. They are in recession. We are in a boom. It would be funny if it weren’t so pathetic, but Israel is the richest country by far in the region per capita.

The amount of money we get from America is a paltry $3 billion in loan guarantees, 70% of which is not even real money. It’s monopoly money called USAID dollars that can only be spent in America to buy spare F16 parts. The reason America gives us over $2 billion in monopoly money that we can only spend in the US every year is that they want to keep those jobs at Lockheed Martin so Obama can say “look at these unemployment numbers!” (Which stink anyway and are double our own.)

As a result, we can’t develop our own airplanes which we certainly could do if left alone, and they’d be better than anything Lockheed could produce. Then we could export them to America, or better yet, give the Americans some monopoly shekels they could only spend in Israel and secure some more jobs here! (No, I wouldn’t advocate that, but you see my point.)

The point is, accepting American aid which totals a measly 1% of our GDP damages our fighter plane industry. But that is the least of our problems.

More importantly, the psychological issue. Jews are still mentally in exile mode even though we have our own country again. We think we’re dependent on everyone and fear pure independence. 2000 years wondering from slaughter to massacre will do that to a nation. Almost everyone here believes American aid is absolutely essential and it makes us feel weak and pathetic even though we are by far the strongest country in town here in the Middle East.

A Jew who thinks he is weak and pathetic is willing to cower, and a Jew willing to cower gets his brothers and sisters killed. Every time a rocket falls on Sderot or Beer Sheba, we feel we have to cry to America instead of take care of the problem. Every time there is a terrorist attack, we have to call up the White House to see what we’re allowed to do about it.

If you are an American and you’re reading this, imagine that after September 11 you had to ask Israel what you could do about it. It is emasculating and sad, but this is what we do because we feel we need free American airplane parts. We don’t, but we want to feel like we have a father, and we certainly don’t want to be on our own. We take American money not for any real economic need. We take it because we want a cultural father. Read more about this here.

Imagine, for a second, that there were no foreign aid in this region. Foreign aid makes up 80% of the Palestinian Authority’s GDP. 80%. It’s hard to even call that GDP. It’s not product. It’s just stolen American taxpayer money. Palestinians don’t produce anything. It’s hard to produce anything when your entire national aspirations are negative, i.e., get the Jews out.

Without foreign aid, the Palestinans have nothing. What would happen then? They’d just leave, especially if we paid them to do so. We have enough money to pay every Palestinian family $100,000 just to get up and out and move to Dubai who are desperate for people to build their oil-driven skyscrapers. Talk about solving the conflict. All we need is the will to do it. And to get the will, we need independence. And to get independence, we need liberty. To get liberty, we need to stop taking free money from anyone.

If we need weapons, we should buy them or build them. No charity.

Imagine being able to accept or reject a deal based on our own calculations instead of Washington’s. Imagine that the next time Hamas bombs our cities, we can go in and actually finish the job and destroy them, and Ron Paul will get the call on his red phone in the oval office and say to Netanyahu, “Why are you calling me? Do what you want!”

The most important reason to stop taking American aid is that it is simply immoral to do so. America is in so much debt that debt has lost all meaning there. Israel is the only Western country on the planet left that has a balanced budget and isn’t bolted down to a currency union made up of debt drunk PIIGS.

We are the last bastion of fiscal responsibility left on the planet and we’re taking money from American taxpayers?

This is wrong, it’s immoral, and it must stop. Whether we like it or not, the world always looks to us, the Jewish people, for moral guidance. If we don’t provide it, we are hated. It’s as simple as that.

If we are hated, the world loses spiritual direction. When that happens, things get dark and gloomy.

Ron Paul is the only candidate running truly driven by real moral principles. His biggest moral principle is that of liberty given by God and not Government. The concept of God-given liberty is something that the Jewish People brought to the world when we had our little thing called the Exodus from Egypt when God came down, fought the Egyptian government Himself, and told Pharaoh that governments cannot enslave nations. Without the Jewish Exodus, the founding fathers of the great nation of America would have had absolutely nothing to work with.

We brought liberty to the world. Ron Paul understands that well. That’s why he wants us, the Jews, the Israelis, to be free. So lets stop taking their money.

Ron Paul stands for the Jewish value of Liberty. And so should we.
