Ron Paul Fights for Liberty, NDAA Takes Them Away and Occupy Wall Street is Battered in Oakland California

By: Ryan Matthew Dernick

Now well into the heart of the 2012 Republican Presidential GOP race for the nomination Ron Paul holds a respectable third place nationally.

Ron Paul attains 3rd while Mitt Romney sweeps 1st place in Nevada.

A libertarian to the core and a protector of constitutional rights,Texas Congressman Ron Paul has the economic insight  to put America back on track. Florida Primary ended with Mitt Romney taking the win leaving Ron Paul in fourth place. When asked by Wolf Blitzer on CNN’s the “Situation Room” last Friday as to why he could not muster a more prominent foot hold in Florida among the voters there? Ron replied that the money was a big issue. As it did not allow him to campaign as aggressively as he could have liked to in the Sunshine State. In Nevada Paul ended up with 19 percent of the vote and again Mitt Romney stole the show with 50 percent.

On Saturday Feb.4th in the Adelson Late Caucus Results (Clark County, Nevada) were overwhelmingly in Ron Paul’s favor indicative of the growing national likeability of this Congressman and retired U.S. Air Foce Physician.
Paul 58% (183 votes)
Romney 19% (61 votes)
Gingrich 18% (57 votes)
Santorum 5% (16 votes)

Break the walls of ignorance and liberate “We the People” from a selfish selected few. Is it the purported Too Big to Go to Jail or is it Too Big to Fail? These spineless sycophants and their gestapo like minions feel the real change coming not the semantic sold change of ethically compromised puppet politicians.

The meek shall inherit the Earth not the greedy, malevolent and despotic conspirators against freedom. Let’s reinstate The Glass Steagall Act or Banking Act of 1933 which was put in place by Franklin Delano Roosevelt after the last Great Depression in the early 20th Century to stop banks from insider trading via derivatives but was then reversed by the Clinton Administration in 1999 prior to the 2008 onset of the present recession/depression. The act states it is to provide for safer and more effective use of the assets of banks, to regulate interbank control, to prevent the undue diversion of funds into speculative operations, and for other purposes. Is this historical irony or another corporate takeover? This is not a partisan issue but an issue that traverses any and all political ideologies.

All Criminal, I mean good things come to an end. Most people have heard the saying “The truth shall set you free”. If anyone has any reservations of where their allegiance lies then they might want to decide what side of the line in the sand they want to stand on. An egregious violation of our First Amendment right has been committed recently in Oakland, California when over 400 Occupy Oakland demonstrators and a number of journalists were arrested in a violent confrontation on Jan. 28. The turmoil began when protesters attempted to convert a vacant building into a community center. The police response to the protesters’ efforts included firing tear gas, bean bag projectiles and flash grenades to disperse the crowd, according to a Jan. 30 Democracy Now! The total of nationwide Occupy arrests are now up 6,300 protesters, according to @OccupyArrests’ twitter feed.

This violation is occurring because of the newest added piece of legislation passed known as the N.D.A.A .(National Defense Authorization Act 2011) that permits the President of the United States to unlawfully detain American citizens without normal due process of law. That means our 4th and 5th Amendment rights in the Bill of Rights are absolutely nullified or non-existent. It also increases sanctions on Iran, hence the ongoing further escalating nuclear tensions between the U.S. and Iran with the Unites States threatening Iran with more economic sanctions. Additionally (section 1045), commissions reviews of the military capabilities of countries such as Iran, China, and Russia, and refocuses the strategic goals of NATO towards energy security. This interestingly again reflects the current and ongoing geopolitical tensions the United States has with all three of these countries.

“Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country”-John F. Kennedy. These words speak volumes in reference to a growing Global Peace Movement of Occupy Wall Street.org and the fight for liberty with Ron Paul’s 2012 Presidential Campaign. Wall Street and the World Banks are behaving like the Austrian born French Queen Marie Antoinette (1774-1793) married to Louis XVI as she said unsympathetically and ignorantly to the starving mass French Populous “Let them eat Cake”. Those that enjoy being products of parasitism, or having their intellect and good natures exploited by a hegemonic global corporate dictatorship need not listen as your conscience is sold by falsely perceived securities.

“Man, woman and child were meant to be what they were born to be free and independent”- my redaction of John F. Kennedy’s closing statement toward secret agendas or societies that subvert not only America but the world’s freedoms. I leave you with some quotes from one of the greatest European leaders and speakers of the 20th Century Sir Winston Leonard Churchill (1874-1965).

“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”

“If you have ten thousand regulations, you destroy all respect for the law.”

“You can always count on Americans to do the right thing—after they’ve tried everything else.”

“History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.”

“Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement; then it becomes a mistress, and then it becomes a master, and then a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster, and fling him out to the public.”

“The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.” “Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality that guarantees all the others.”

“Let Freedom Ring” and start a peaceful movement to foster real community awareness on real issues in your city wherever you are.

Romney Seals New Hampshire and Ron Paul Garners Second

By Ryan Matthew Dernick

Ex-Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney grabs the Republican GOP win for the New Hampshire Primary and sets his sights now on South Carolina.

With the Iowa Caucus and now the New Hampshire Primary in the Books for Romney(R-Mass.) can he stave off Texas Congressman Ron Paul who is closely on his heels in second?

Newt Gingrich (R- Ga.) the former Speaker of the House falters further in the New Hampshire Primary polls  and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum came in with 10% to 9% modestly, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry had a piddly 1%.
Over this past Saturday Nights Republican GOP debate in the “Live Free or Die” State of New Hampshire Ron Paul defended himself against Newt Gingrich. Newt wanted to know the reason why he was deemed a “chicken hawk” by Ron Paul in a previous statement, in regards to the ever growing  U. S. Military Veterans problem.
Ron Paul replied to Newt, ” I think people when they could get 3, 4 or 5 deferments they have no right to send our kids off to war. I am trying to stop the wars, but at least I went when they called me up. The vet problem is a big one. With hundreds of thousands coming back from these wars that were undeclared, unnecessary and not winnable. We have hundreds of thousands looking for care and with epidemics of suicide coming back. If you add up all the contractors in all the wars going on in Afghanistan and Iraq we have lost 8,500 Americans with severe injuries of over 40,000. And these are undeclared Wars!! Rick keeps saying you don’t want this Libertarian stuff. I don’t bring up the word you do. I talk about the Constitution and the Constitution has rules. I don’t like it when we send our kids off to fight these wars when those individuals didn’t go themselves. Then they come up when they’re asked about it and say I don’t think I could have made a difference. I have a pet peeve, that annoys me to a great deal. Because when I see these young men and women coming back my heart weeps for them.”
The GOP Republican New Hampshire Primary Results
Romney 96,488votes or 39%
Paul                 56,105 or 23%
Huntsman     41,370 or 17%
Newt retorts to Ron’s reply “Dr. Paul has a long history of saying things that are inaccurate and false. The fact is I never asked for a deferment I was married with a child it was never a question.”
Ron replies to Gingrich ” when I was drafted I was married I had two kids and I went.”
Newt then says as people begin to applaud Paul “I wasn’t eligible for the draft. I wasn’t eligible for the draft.”
Ron Paul has consistently polled well with young voters, first time voters, independents, democrats who desire a real change from Obama and those serving or who have served in the military. With the South Carolina Primary coming into view the Republican GOP Presidential race intensifies. With the U.S. national unemployment average at 8.5% and individual states much higher than that, Dr. Paul described how to bring America on the move once again at the New Hampshire debate.
 “To restore America to our freedoms. Restore America to our principles and that is individual liberty and our constitution and sound money. In doing that you have to understand economics. You can’t solve any of this economic crisis unless you know where the business cycle comes from and why you have bubbles and why they break. You have to understand that we have had a financial bubble that has been going on for 40 years it’s collapsing. Nobody quite recognizes it but were in the midst of a real big correction. The only way you can get back to growth you have to liquidate the debt. But instead of liquidating debt what we’ve done is the people who build up the debt on Wall Street and the Banks. We have had the American taxpayer bail them out. We bought it through the federal reserve and through the treasury dumped it on the American People. The middle class is now shrinking and we don’t have jobs. But if you are individual or business man, if you’re consuming everything you’re earning just to finance your debt you can’t have growth. So we have to liquidate debt. This is the reason I have called for cutting spending. The only one that is calling for real cuts. You have to have real cuts. That’s what the Republican Party use to stand for. But you can’t keep bailing out debt that’s what Japan has been doing for twenty years now and they’re still in their doldrums. We did it in the Great Depression and have been in this five years now and it has end.”
He the will definitely be one to watch this 2012 Presidential election as he continues to battle against Mitt Romney and Huntsman in the Republican Presidential GOP.
