Bernie Sanders IS Ron Paul That Means He Will Sell You OUT!
There are a lot of media driven parallels being drawn between libertarian-ish Ron Paul and Bernie Sanders these days. What is the media’s obsession with comparing the two, you ask?
They want to rise up the disaffected and alienated voters and steer them into the partisan establishment campaign of their chosen establishment candidate, in this case Hillary Clinton.
How do I know this? Because I’ve seen this shit before.
This scenario played out during both Ron Paul campaigns for President in 2008, and 2012.
First, let’s remember 2008.
An obscure “conviction candidate” Texas Republican House Member, Ron Paul, began getting marginalized, mocked and derided in the GOP debates. Both by candidates and the media itself.
Even the most casual observer could see that every time the man opened his mouth, the response of his opponents and the media got more intense in discrediting him, and mocking him, when they could not. Finally, fed up, they just ignored him altogether…
This lead to impassioned supporters doing research and coming up with any way they could think of to get more public exposure to Ron Paul and his ideas.
Even record fundraising that the media was forced to cover?
Just like Ron Paul, the moment has chosen Bernie Sanders, Democrat Senator of Vermont.
With the economic downturn Ron Paul warned us about in full effect, Sanders has emerged as the one voice demanding that Corporations pay for the privileges granted to them by government, and kick back some of that money to assist with needs here at home.
He talks about rights and privileges that should be extended to people on the basis of sex, race, and faith. He speaks of a living wage bill that would increase the income of the American worker, and expanded subsidies for the unemployed of America, and more subsidies for people to go to college and get even more education, to get a higher paying job, and preferably off government welfare. He talks of prison sentencing reform, just like Rand Paul, and also wants to keep America safe from boogeymen overseas…. As well as push back against the never ending war on civil liberties that is being waged by the government against the people…
Most of this was Ron Paul’s views, back in 2008, and 2012.
But it isn’t Rand Paul that picked up this flag…
It’s Bernie Sanders.
All well and good, we should be happy that somebody is carrying on Ron’s legacy in some small way, right?
The final act of BOTH Ron Paul campaigns was NOT to challenge the establishment of the party… but to give them what they wanted, and go away…
In 2008 Ron suspended his campaign after telling his supporters that he could win through direct appeal to the GOP delegates… money was raised, people planned… and when convention time rolled around, Ron showed up, saw his delegates be abused, and was escorted out the door. While his own delegates were arrested for trespassing and put in jail in Tampa.
Ron would take his supporters money he freely chose not to spend campaigning, and started a Political Action Committe… known as “Campaign for Liberty.” Keeping his family members in control and on the payroll.
Supposedly to prepare for 2012.
In 2012, Ron did announce and raise money, was not nearly as combative during the debates, and seemed to be running intercession for Mitt Romney of all people.
Instead of taking on the front-runner, and ending his campaign, like Ron did with Rudy Giuliani, Ron actually defended Mitt, liberal former Democrat Mitt Romney, the father of Obamneycare, who was a Democrat during Ronald Reagan’s campaigns, while Ron worked for and supported Reagan, what the hell was going on?
Why was Ron going easy on liberal Mitt, of all people? Especially when Mitt hired security to infiltrate and kick out Ron Paul supporters at voting booths and poll stations. Openly harassing them and having them illegally arrested? How could Ron be silent on this, and stand down when his supporters NEEDED him to stand UP for THEM?
What was Ron’s final act? He simply endorsed GOP candidate Mitt Romney, no questions asked, or to put it in a way Mitt Romney would understand “No Apologies.”
Again all the money from the campaign went NOT to win an election, it simply went into Rand Paul’s war chest, and campaign (mis)manager Jesse Benton’s bank account, keeping it in the Ron Paul family.
While Ron did not endorse Mitt Romney, Rand Paul did. As a payback for his Senate seat in Kentucky. Even after Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s hand picked successor to run for the seat was soundly defeated by Rand (and Ron Paul supporters) during the primary, as was the Democrat candidate Jack Conway in the general election.
What did the Ron Paul supporters get for their fealty to the Paul clan? A call to support Mitt fucking Romney… and to let bygones be bygones, and join the GOP, the committees, raise money for the GOP, and “look busy, raise money, and do NOTHING to fuck with the message of the GOP.”
Libertarians must become conservatives or GTFO!
How about Bernie Sanders?
Not only will he not criticize Hillary Clinton, he praises her and insist he is not running against her.
Not only will he be happy to take the money being raised unexpectedly, he has already put himself in a position to pledge all of that money and support to none other than Hillary Clinton, to defeat the GOP.
Yes he wants to win. But how can he?
If he refuses to challenge Hillary, what will he do when the inevitable front-runner media obsession for the 1st female President of the United States, forces the media to change the narrative to Hillary’s liking, just like they did with Barack Obama, OVER Hillary in 2008?
He won’t take her on, so what will he be able to do?
Twist in the wind…
Who will he blame?
Who will he come after if they don’t support the nominee, Hillary?
His hardcore, true believer supporters.
Get in line, or GTFO!
This was the dying gaul of both Ron Paul Presidential campaigns… Always, and without question blame the media, when you are already not running to win.
Ron would shrug off the media, count on his poor treatment, and marginalization by the press to enrage his supporters to give him even MORE money… and in the end… sit back and count the money, and sit on his hands, while the inevitable media selected candidate got to run for the Presidency…
Bernie isn’t as critical of the media, while his supporters are beginning to “Feel their own Bern,” by seeing their own pied piper of Socialism, be limited by the invisible ceiling that is imposed upon any candidate by the press, for daring to rock the establishment boat.
It has not yet hit full force. And it won’t until the voting starts.
Should Bernie threaten the “chosen one” of the Democrat party, he will see the same media driven attacks as Ron Paul received. That is a given.
What is also transparent and a given is Bernie’s response. Which he has stated time and time again, to NOT attack his opponents, compliment them on their strengths, ignore their weaknesses, and claim he is running for President for the people and not for the Republican party.
So he is already saying no matter how much you support him and expect him to go to the mat for you, he simply chooses NOT to. And will endorse the candidate of the party, more than likely Hillary.
All that money, all those phone calls, and mailings, shaking people down for cash and expecting their vote, is nothing… And will accomplish nothing.
It simply will be kept by Bernie just like Ron Paul did TWICE, OR be sent TO Hillary and the Democrat party to fight the mean old Republicans…
Ron Paul did it.
Bernie has already stated ad nauseam that HE will do it…
That is what to be expected, no matter what happens to the Bernie Sanders campaign during the primaries.
He more than likely will only campaign in a half assed manner, like Ron Paul, raise money, speak at the debates, while the media and candidates ignore him, like they did Paul, and endorse the front-runner… just like Ron Paul did.
And if you don’t like it, and try to get in the way of Hillary 2016… Watch out!
Hillary’s Army is coming for you, and Bernie Sanders will be the 1st to kick you out, and leave you to their fury.
So while it’s nice to have the attention, and the money that comes with it, Bernie simply doesn’t want the job, and any money and effort given and sent to him, is left in vain…
When the time comes, and the pressure is on… he will cave, surrender and herd his supporters into the Democrat fold to back the candidate Hillary Motherfucking Clinton!
The speeches are nice, the issues need to be spoke of, but when it comes to action… he will walk away, sell you out, keep the money for himself and the party, and read the riot act to the true believers who refuse to take no for an answer, just like Ron Paul’s handlers did… when they purged the grassroots Ron Paul die-hards who refused to back Mitt Romney and the GOP in 2012, and John McCain in 2008.
We can want principled leaders like a Paul or a Bernie Sanders, but if they don’t want us, and won’t fight for US… there is no point in wasting time bothering to support them, or give them time and money we will never have again, when circumstances for all of us are guaranteed to get worse.
It’s nice to hear the music of the pied piper, and it’s a joy and very freeing to surrender to their tall tales of false promises of reform. but the harsh light of day, and cold reality from the stiff wind of bullshit that flows through when the journey has gone on long enough to know, that you haven’t gone anywhere, and if anything are left deeper in the wilderness than you were before, with less provisions than you started with, and no how, no way, and no means to get any more…
You come to the realization through self preservation… that YOUR ASS IS ON THE LINE!!!
And the man or collection of men that led you to this predicament, are nowhere to be found…
Do you turn back, and run to try to get back into safety?
Or do you press on and go even deeper into the abyss… “Hoping and praying for change” to happen, and fate to turn your way, purely through self interest and magical thinking that is the hallmark side effect of faith based ideologies, instead of verifiable facts.
Bernie Sanders, Rand Paul, Hillary Clinton and their lot are hoping and praying that you continue to believe in them, support them with your time and financially so they can make even more money and have a shot at power..
And if they can’t have it, they at least can have the privilege to serve it, no matter how poorly their supporters and people who believed in them are treated, or if not even that, just forgotten and are left behind, to defend themselves from each other… and the world.
All faith based ideologies are designed to serve their creators, and absolve them of the consequences of their actions, leaving their true believers to happily volunteer to face those consequences, be the sacrifice to the altar of political expediency, for the right of our leaders have the privilege to serve our masters, and have some privileges extended to them, and them alone.
We get the shaft. We get to pay for it, experience it, live under it, and die by it…
Obedient servants to the last…
Never wanting to rock the boat, to threaten our idols, to incur the wrath of our false Gods…
Well FUCK the Gods!
Our idols haven’t done SHIT for us, except to make a living off OF us, and for being willfully obedient to our masters, lest we all be slaves, just some with better living conditions, more stuff, and a slightly bigger list of privileges for them, coming from our expense, subject to unquestioned obedience for ALL!!!
Or there will be hell to pay…
Think about it…
And you tell me…
How Hell isn’t already HERE!!!
But keep voting for change…
All in the end you will be left with IS that!
Down to your last .02..
Because the rest of your money went to these cocksuckers!
That is YOUR choice!
While you are still permitted to have ANY…
Which under Bernie, certainly goes…
And if you don’t ask him, he’ll tell ya..!
Come to think of it..
Maybe there is a reason he’ll and HELL are so close together…
Maybe Bernie is here to take the distinction away…
See you at Hillary’s inauguration…
God help us all…
But then again, communists don’t believe in god, period…
WE… ARE… FUCKED!
