NOT JUST A CAMPAIGN, IT'S A MOVEMENT
Those of you who are not Ron Paul people don’t need to read this. If you are, here are some thoughts that could be helpful. I write after the Nevada caucuses, where Dr. No racked up a smashing second place and 14% of the vote, ahead of Giuliani, Huckabee, Hunter, McCain and Thompson, doing so in the face of the orchestrated cover-up of highly paid network barf bags.
So, Dr. No utterly thrashed not only the erstwhile Republican candidates who have already departed, not only Duncan Hunter, who has now dropped out, but he also soundly whipped Rudy Giuliani and Fred Thompson yet again, certainly proving he is a “top tier” candidate, which will be underlined when Thompson and then Mike Huckabee run out of money.
Remember, Rudy was supposed to be the “runaway front runner.” Nobody was supposed to be able to touch him. Now he is Rudy Who. The only thing you need to know about Fred Thompson is that he is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Marxist group in New York that is the secret government of the United States and has been conspiring assiduously for decades to destroy our national independence.
Was Fred Thompson inserted in the campaign so tardily as a “responsible conservative” alternative to siphon votes from Dr. Paul? Of course that strategy has failed miserably, if that is what it was. Fred talks the conservative talk when he finds time and is awake but he reminds me of the time somebody told Dorothy Parker that President Silent Cal Coolidge was dead. She replied, “How do they know?” It was one of the few things she ever said you can repeat with ladies present.
Yet, notice that our Communist media still treat Fred and Rudy as major candidates while they do their best to ignore Dr. No. In a classic example, the New York Times, which has assiduously promoted Communism since Walter Duranty, reported the Nevada results of all the candidates – even Rudy Who and CFR Fred – complete with pictures, except the man who took second with 14%.
The other day, in a discussion about conservatism on the air, I heard a caller ask Rush Limbaugh about Dr. No. How the caller got through the screener, I don’t know. Limbag stuttered, said he “profoundly disagreed” that Dr. Paul expressed conservative principles, hung up and went to break. That was it; there was not a syllable of argument that proved Dr. Paul wrong, just Limbag’s expression of profound disagreement.
Somebody else called Republican front man Hugh Hewitt. The caller told the screener he was for far leftist John McCain, but on the air he shouted that he was for Dr. Paul. Hewitt told the screener who blew it that his check would be docked $10 if that happens again. Of course, Hewitt was joking, about the $10, not about his desire to squelch Dr. No.
Maybe the editors at the Times are too busy buggering each other to be aware of this, but they and right wing Communist talk radio scumbags like Hannatwit are destroying their own credibility, a symptom of the fact that the Old Media are dying. Of course in their death throes they are more dangerous than ever. I submit that for Dr. Paul to do as well as he has in the face of all this is something of a political miracle.
In South Carolina, technicians routinely test voting machines before an election to make sure they are set at zero. But the state’s Election Commission now admits that in Horry County this time the test was not done. The Commission blames the oversight on “human error.” By the way, last year the California Secretary of State decertified the Election Systems & Software voting machines South Carolina still uses; ES & S refused to provide information required by California law. Of course, the Diebold and other machines are equally suspicious.
Word from the New Hampshire recount is that there is no way to establish for sure what the vote really was. The ballots were brought to the recount site in such secrecy that it was even forbidden to photograph the delivery. Ballot security appears to be defective. The same people who conducted the primary recounted the votes.
The entire procedure was as suspicious as a one dollar bill. Despite all of which, they will probably announce that the recount shows no substantial difference. Had Dr. Paul demanded a recount, the dis-counters could have used that fact to discredit him. Instead, voting machines have been discredited.
As the Florida primary approaches, the most important thing to understand about all this is the fact that the Ron Paul effort is not just another campaign like all the others. The people who are supporting a candidate for the very first time, who quit their jobs and drive across the country to work for him, who live in their cars and sleep on the floor, who leap to their feet in roaring ecstasy when Dr. No calls for the abolition of the Fed, are not doing all that because they hope President Paul will name them Secretary of State or sign them up for corporate socialism. Yes, the campaign is working all out to win, but the campaign is more than a campaign. It is a movement. Again, many of its adherents are involved for the first time. Without Dr. No they would not have come awake. Dr. Paul “cured their apathy.” During the almost fifty years I have been in the patriot trenches, we have spent much time talking to ourselves, “preaching to the choir,” trying to break through.
The Ron Paul campaign has done it. Look at its constituents. Because the phony “War on Drugs” has thrown many of them in jail, Dr. No’s stand against it has won him more support among black people than any other Republican. He is a hero on college campuses and among computer nerds. The movement has enrolled people in every identifiable group, race, religion, financial condition, location, culture, etc.
Many of these people have never lived in a free country. They have never known anything else but government by emergency that justifies perpetual war. Now, in the Ron Paul campaign that has launched a movement, they have had a whiff of what freedom would be like. Not a big one. Just a whiff. But enough to convince them they like it. Enough to convince them it’s possible. They want more. As Dr. No has said, freedom is contagious.
Question: whether Dr. No. wins or not, what will these freedom-challenged people do after the election? Will they just forget all about it? Will they merely go on to the next fad? Yes, some will. Some weak sisters have already left us, sent running by the preposterous piece about Dr. Paul’s “racism” in the New Republic, a magazine so famous for lying that Hollywood made a movie of it.
Others, summer soldiers and sunshine patriots, have left and will leave for other reasons. When the dross is gone, the hard core will remain. What will they do? They are presently getting a priceless education in politics. They will use it in subsequent elections to run themselves. As I write, thousands of them are becoming precinct chairmen.
There is also the priceless mailing list, comprising the 100,000 or so people who have contributed to Dr. No’s campaign. The mailing list is the heart of the movement now taking shape. The Dr. No candidacy has brought the true change the other candidates talk about. It will bring even more. For a long time, politics will not be the same.
The Communist media are too stupid to understand what is happening. Again, they are dying and don’t know it. Newspaper readership is falling as fast as the World Trade Center. Working at NBC and Channel 13 in New York years ago, I routinely read seven daily newspapers. No more. The networks no longer enjoy their monopoly. They too are dying. The internet is where the action is. You Tube makes direct communication possible, circumventing Communist media control. The Ron Paul movement knows how to use it.
So, the fact that these dying vestiges of totalitarian news and their front men are giving the Soviet-Fascist treatment to Dr. Paul is irrelevant. The movement is spreading despite them. It will certainly cascade into other areas like home schooling, which will rescue more and more kiddos from world government brainwashing.
Notice that the other candidates sound more and more like Dr. Paul, which raises the question of why voters should accept one or the other insincere imitation, when they could easily get the real thing. The Boosh Administration has been lusting to attack Iran. So far, they have not. Could the reason be the heat Dr. No has applied to the subject? Could that be the reason so many military men are expressing their distaste for Boosh’s Imperial policy?
Because of the Paul campaign, Americans who would never have known otherwise now understand that Fascism is the trouble with our system. The father of Fascism was Benito Mussolini, who explained, “Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of State and corporate power.” He also called Fascism the “corporate state,” a government in which the corporations are the government. That is the perversion the conspiracy for world government has grafted on our limited republic.
Americans who until recently were in total darkness now understand
that, and that understanding is the first step in the constitutional
restoration. So, there is every reason for Ronpaulers to be encouraged.
The campaign is just the beginning. The work will continue after the
elections no matter what happens. Welcome to the movement.

Alan Stang was one of Mike Wallace’s original writers at Channel 13 in New York, where he wrote some of the scripts that sent Mike to CBS. Stang has been a radio talk show host himself. In Los Angeles, he went head to head nightly with Larry King, and, according to Arbitron, had almost twice as many listeners. He has been a foreign correspondent. He has written hundreds of feature magazine articles in national magazines and some fifteen books, for which he has won many awards, including a citation from the Pennsylvania House of Representatives for journalistic excellence. One of Stang’s exposés stopped a criminal attempt to seize control of New Mexico, where a gang seized a court house, held a judge hostage and killed a deputy. The scheme was close to success before Stang intervened. Another Stang exposé inspired major reforms in federal labor legislation.
His first book, It’s Very Simple: The True Story of Civil Rights, was an instant best-seller. His first novel, The Highest Virtue, set in the Russian Revolution, won smashing reviews and five stars, top rating, from the West Coast Review of Books, which gave five stars in only one per cent of its reviews.
Stang has lectured in every American state and around the world and has guested on many top shows, including CNN’s Cross Fire. Because he and his wife had the most kids in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic, where they lived at the time, the entire family was chosen to be actors in “Havana,” directed by Sydney Pollack and starring Robert Redford, the most expensive movie ever made (at the time). Alan Stang is the man in the ridiculous Harry Truman shirt with the pasted-down hair. He says they made him do it.
Was Fred Thompson inserted in the campaign so tardily as a “responsible conservative” alternative to siphon votes from Dr. Paul?
