It Is Fairly Cut and Dried... Occupy our United States! by Merwin

Updated on January 8, 2012

We desperately need change...

I have said it before and I believe it needs to be often said, "We elected Obama for his 'yes we can' promise of change and received no change, other than name."

Obama was raised up by the political machine.

Who else are parts of that machine?

It would be much easier to ask who is not..?

And while we are at it, let us ask where then, would their campaign support come from, for them person(s), if not from the machine?

The answer to each of those questions in turn is... Ron Paul, then, plain people, you and I and the many millions who would like nothing better than to send a message to BIG Government to stop bankrupting us and that we are phasing them out.

We have an opportunity, you and I, to stop this from going any further and maybe even to turn it around. It is a slim margin of an opportunity and if it is missed this time, we probably will never have it again.

You see, this country may be beyond verge of economic ruin, like a runner finding out that he has run off a cliff... his only hope (other than God) is to turn himself in mid air and find a hand hold on the cliff face (Obama) before he picks up too much speed to make grabbing anything impossible. When that first effort slows his descent a little (philosophy of change), he may then (possibly) grab onto something with more substance (Paul), to stop the fall, and then start the laborious climb to safety.

The value of having an Obama (false) promise of change, is to give us finally, the ability to discern for ourselves (as the runner), where the dependable hand holds aren't... and, they are not in The (big government) Machine. The Machine is owned by Centralized Banking and Big Corporate interests, that is who they serve, and that is where they get their campaign funds from.

And The Machine is convinced that it owns you, that it knows what you want (change), and that it is able to provide you with a pacifier (Obama) to shut you up.

And Obama had the added benefit (to The Machine), of leading us further into crushing debt just like his corrupt predecessors did, to make us even more subservient to the Corporate Interests.

With our status-quot, we cannot even afford to pay all the annual interest on the loans from the Federal Reserve, so China is buying some of our debts. And if we can't pay the Reserve why would we think we could pay China..? And if anyone thinks that the Reserve or China is doing this out of the kindness of their hearts, they are gravely mistaken.

We must stop the free fall..!

Ron Paul... is simply a hard line Constitutionalist figurehead, for a grassroots, Occupy the United States, movement.

We need more people to rise up and run for office using the enthusiasm generated by the Ron Paul example.

There is no other Presidential Candidate that is (presently) not part of The Machine..! And we all know now (via Obama), that we cannot trust the false hand holds provided by The Machine.

We as a people need to arise in every corner of our country, from all walks of life, and Represent. And what will be our (we the people) safe hand holds to guard our ascent..?

Our Constitution..!

Occupy our United States..!

      2 ALL...

      Thank you so much for stopping by and giving this a look.

      This Hub has been mistakenly considered by some of you to be a call for votes for Congressman Paul.

      I am in favor of Paul for a variety of reasons, but this is not the reason for this Hub, and this being said, please allow my reiteration of its primary purpose, and that is to encourage one, and all Constitutionalists who have ever thought about running for office, to do so on that platform.

      Please read a previous Hub...

      We need your input, we need your enthusiasm and ability to articulate your position, all under Constitutional parameters.

      Stand up and Occupy Our United States with who you are, and do it Constitutionally..!

      In re: to Paul being supported by "anyone" that someone may take issue with... He (Paul) has never voted against the Constitution... and he is the only one "running" that can say that.

      Very well written. I'm not a Ron Paul fan, however I DO like a lot of his ideas, and general ideology. Don't be offended. I'm not a big fan of anyone in this race. I'm a freak about the basics and getting back to them in business. The same applies when it comes to running a country. We're both working towards the same goal, just a different approach. My organization is about two things. One is changing Americans attitude by giving them control, and reminding them that it's necessary to raise their expectations, and two; Going after corruption, waste, and fraud with a whole lot of people behind us.

      Again, I commend you on this hub, and I commend you on the idea that we are going to have to make some radical changes in our thinking and the way we do business.

      I see a lot of change. And I see it getting ignored, and psy-opped into something terrible!

      Mitt Romney is flat-out lying about Obama, and himself. How come no one calls him on his lies but Newt?

      There's your machine. R-Money.

      And here's a nice factoid: Paul has 64% of his money invested in gold and silver.....could that be why he wants to end cash?

      As long as Lies prevail, we are getting No Where.

      Knowing who is and who isn't a part of the Machine is the difficult part. They all tell us what they believe we want to hear. How much, if any, of what they say is true is a total unknown. We sure don't see much of the change we were promised by this administration.

      Sounds good to me. As long as Paul doesn't occupy the White house.

      And how is it that Ron Paul is not part of the machine? Do you know, he was once funded by the Koch Bros and the Heritage Foundation?

      It is not cut and dried to me at all that Obama is the enemy.

      "Who else are parts of that machine?

      It would be much easier to ask who is not..?"
