Ron Paul v Big Brother
By Bill Price
George Orwell created Big Brother in his novel “1984”. Orwell’s fictional creation, a totalitarian state, had gained complete control over its subjects. The term Big Brother has since become synonymous with all dictatorial political systems which ultimately supplant their greedy wills over the natural actions and private thoughts of the common citizen. A modern manifestation of Big Brother can be witnessed today through the phenomena known as political correctness. Be careful of what you say. When rights are converted into privileges and fear of the authorities is the rule not the exception, Big Brother’s ominous form is once again casting its long shadows. Orwell’s nightmare of a dictatorial political and philosophical system has evolved into a modern religion, a non theistic one unless you consider government and God as the same. An encompassing force incrementally imposed through steady doses of fear is Big Bro’s modus operandi. Long tentacles reach into all spheres of life. The economy is where the greatest amount of social force can be applied and Big Brother completely controls it through the Federal Reserve Bank, the World Bank and virtually all modern systems of finance. Fractional banking, compound interest, and money creation through debt have trumped congressional control in the U.S. Big Brother’s seductive power has cast a spell on our representatives in Washington D.C. “Congress shall have the power to coin money, regulate the value thereof; and of foreign coin…” U.S Constitution Article I § 8 part 5. This spell has made our elected representatives blind to section 8 part 5 of Article 1, and magically created an authority that gave Congress’s exclusive power for coining/creating money to private for profit bankers. Trillions in interest have been harvested by seducing Congress into ignoring Article I § 8 part 5.
Big Brother’s incantation has done similarly with the following Constitutional provisions:
“Congress shall have the power… to declare war…” Article 1 § 8 part 11:“
“Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included in this Union, according to their respective numbers…” Article 1 § 2 part 3.
And, Article 1 in § 9 part 4. No capitation, or other direct, tax shall be laid, unless in proportion to the census…”
The Constitution demands that direct taxes be apportioned. Every contender in the 2008 presidential race except for Congressman Paul is either under big brother’s spell or is just another of his unwitting accomplices.
We are in a mortal struggle with the ghost, conjured in literary form by George Orwell. Orwell has proven himself to be a prophet with his futuristic specter, an atheistic “paradise”. Ron Paul is a challenger vying for president…the only one willing to do battle with the shadow government of Big Brother. His success depends on his two weapons, the Constitution and us. I’m certain of the Constitution, but do we patriots have the fortitude required for a serious fight? The real question now is not can Ron Paul win, but rather, can we make him the winner.
