Here IS How This 2012 U.S. Election IS Going To Go
by David Sadler
Executive Summary

It's not about Party -- It's about Principle.
It's not about Personality -- It's about Policy.

So here IS how this 2012 election will go.
1) Ron Paul will win the GOP nomination, or
2) Ron Paul will run 3rd party, or
3) Ron Paul supporters will WRITE IN Ron Paul's name during the general election.

Either way, supporters of the Ron Paul policies and principles will not support the status quo simply because there is a party name attached to the candidate. Voting for Establishment candidates (status quo) has brought the American people and the United States to the edge of the cliff. Some of us (Ron Paul supporters) are not going to jump off the cliff. We choose to live free, sovereign and prosperous lives.

The GOP and disenfranchised Democrats, Independents and Libertarians have a choice. Vote for Ron Paul in the primaries and general election or very probably attempt to survive with another four years of what we've been getting for the past twenty years - only worse.

Understand this ... If Ron Paul does not win, it makes no difference who else wins because everyone except Ron Paul will implement the same globalist principles and policies that have been in effect and building for at least the last fifty years in America.

IF you are one of the disenfranchised members of the Republican and Democratic parities and IF you are an Independent that knows that war is not peace; that debt is not wealth; that slavery is not liberty; that ignorance is not understanding; that the current system is not serving you and your interests --- then IT IS TIME TO REGISTER AS A REPUBLICAN for the 2012 elections and CAST YOUR VOTE FOR THE PRINCIPLES AND POLICIES OF RON PAUL by VOTING FOR RON PAUL. No opportunity lasts forever. There is a time to act and that time is now IF you want to get your personal security (economic and liberty) back under your control.

Ron Paul Endorsed
by Bachmann's Iowa Campaign Chairman

"... there is a clear top tier in the race
for the Republican nomination for president,
both here in Iowa and nationally ...
Ron Paul is easily the most conservative of this group.
... Ron Paul has established himself as the clear choice."
-- Iowa State Senator Ken Sorenson --

Ron Paul Endorsed by Bachmann's Iowa Campaign Chairman

Senator Sorenson confirmes that the GOP Establishment is going to try to derail Ron Paul's campaign. Sorenson had this to say during his endorsement speech televised on C-SPAN before a group of Iowa veterens supporting Ron Paul.

"When the Republican establishment is going to be coming after Ron Paul, I thought it is my duty to come to his aid."

Various media are reporting that Michele Bachmann issued a written statement accusing Senator Sorenson of selling out after, "he was offered a large sum of money to go to work for the Paul campaign ...Kent said to me yesterday that 'everyone sells out in Iowa, why shouldn't I.'"

Sorenson responded calling the charge, "absurd."

Ron Paul campaign chairman Jesse Benton said, "We've always known Michele to be an honorable person. She should stop slandering an honorable Iowa state senator."

Bachmann's Iowa political director Wes Enos disputed Bachmann's charge against Sorenson saying in part, "I can say unequivocally that Kent Sorenson's decision was, in no way financially motivated ... Kent believed that he needed to be with [the Ron Paul campaign] as they stand on the cusp of a potential caucus upset. While I personally disagree with Kent's decision ... I cannot, in good conscious watch a good man like Kent Sorenson be attacked as a 'sell-out' ... That is simply not the case, and it was not the basis of his decision."

Iowa Senator Kent Sorenson Written Endorsement of Ron Paul
as reported by Ron Paul 2012.

"The decision I am making today is one of the most difficult I have made in my life. But given what's at stake for our country, I have decided I must take this action. Today, I am switching my support from Michele Bachmann to Ron Paul for the 2012 Iowa Caucuses and the presidency of the United States.

"I still maintain an immense amount of respect for Michele. The reasons are many. She’s never betrayed conservatives on issues like taxes, the Right to Life, and the Second Amendment. So over the past few months, I have been saddened at the dismissive way she's been treated among some conservatives especially after winning the Iowa Straw Poll.

"But the fact is, there is a clear top tier in the race for the Republican nomination for President, both here in Iowa and nationally. Ron Paul is easily the most conservative of this group. The truth is, it was an excruciatingly difficult decision for me to decide between supporting Michele Bachmann and Ron Paul at the beginning of this campaign. Dr. Paul and his supporters were a major help in my successful campaigns for Iowa House and Senate even when I couldn’t count on the support of the Republican establishment here in Iowa.

"Of course, battling the establishment is nothing new for Dr. Paul or for myself. During my time in the General Assembly, I’ve established myself as a leader in the fights for traditional marriage, the Right to Life, and the protection of the Second Amendment – sometimes even against the wishes of my own party.

"Since my election, I’ve learned that doing the right thing isn’t always easy. It’s easy to see why so many legislators “sell out” once elected. The pressure to do so is immense.

But what America needs now is a President who will not just “go along to get along.” Instead, we must send someone who puts doing what is right above all else to the White House. That candidate is Ron Paul.

"Ron Paul is the only candidate to predict the current mess we find ourselves in economically, and he's the only candidate to offer a true plan to cut spending and balance our budget.

"He's also consistently spoken out against government spending, assaults on individual liberties, and unnecessary trillion-dollar military adventurism for over 30 years. Polls show he is the Republican candidate that can take on and defeat President Obama in November 2012.

"Like all true conservatives, I wholeheartedly agree with Ron Paul that government is too big, and both parties share in the blame. We agree that it is immoral to print money and pass on mounds of debt to the next generation. We agree that life begins at conception and must be protected. We both believe that the Second Amendment must be defended unwaveringly, and that there are too many wars being fought with no end in sight and no obvious path to a defined victory.

"Of course, as a state legislator, I recognize that Dr. Paul's strong views on the 10th Amendment will enable me to fight for what I believe in right in my own backyard instead of having to constantly wait on one-size-fits-all "solutions" from Washington, D.C.

"With the entire Republican establishment intent on smearing Ron Paul and his dedicated supporters, I understand this decision could impact the way people see me and my entire political career. But this is the right decision, and one in which I proudly stand behind.

"To the truly wonderful people I met on the Bachmann campaign, I look forward to working with them in the future as we further the fights for the Right to Life, traditional marriage, and the restoration of our Second Amendment rights here in Iowa. I personally wish her all the best as she continues to battle in Congress.

"As for conservatives who are rightly concerned with defeating establishment Republicans Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and – even more importantly – Barack Obama in 2012, Ron Paul has established himself as the clear choice.

"If you are as frustrated as I am with what's been done by the ruling class, I urge you to join me in supporting Dr. Paul. We can send the national big government political establishment a message they will never forget by voting for Ron Paul for President in the January 3 Iowa Caucuses."

Kittens for Ron Paul

December 28, 2011
Ron Paul maintains his Iowa lead
But some media and GOP elites say
they will ignore a Ron Paul win

So much for Democracy in America

Ron Paul is still leading in Iowa with one week to go before the Iowa caucus.
• Paul maintains his Iowa lead / Public Policy Polling, December 27, 2011

Even as the controlled and propagandized US mainstream media attempts to cast aspersions upon the recent Russian elections, some US mainstream (controlled) media and GOP elites openly declare they will ignore a Ron Paul win in Iowa and instead talk about who comes in second and third. And they mean it, and they will -- just as the media and GOP elites did when Ron Paul came in a close second to Bachmann in the Iowa straw poll. The US mainstream (controlled) media talked about Bachmann (1st) and all the rest (3rd, 4th, 5th ...) but totally ignored Ron Paul who came in a very close 2nd. CNN host Howard Kurtz said that, "We are in the business of kicking candidates out of the race." Sometimes, comedy can drive the point home more clearly that a dry analysis.

Jon Stewart Says the Media Is Ignoring Ron Paul

• Politico’s chief columnist Roger Simon says, "If Ron Paul Wins Iowa, We Just Take It Out"

But would the Politico propaganda site really not report a Ron Paul win or diminish the win?

• Has the Media Suppressed Ron Paul's Coverage? / The New American
• Establishment Media Admits Conspiracy To Ignore Ron Paul

Then we have the fair and balanced FOX News contributor, Chris Wallace, saying that if Ron Paul wins Iowa that it, "Won't count."
• Latest media talking point: "If Ron Paul wins Iowa it won’t count"

It's clear then that at least some of the mainstream (controlled) US media and some of the GOP elites have tried hard to prevent the American people from becoming informed regarding Ron Paul's views and policies. Even the Iowa governor implies that a Ron Paul win should be suppressed. Considering the way Politico, FOX, CNN, CBS, AP and much of the rest of the controlled media have approached Paul victories and debates, it can be predicted that if Ron Paul wins Iowa, the governor will shift the focus away from the winner to the runners-up.
• Iowa Governor: If Ron Paul Wins, Ignore It And Look At Who Finishes Second
• GOP will take off the gloves if Ron Paul wins Iowa
• The Empire Attacks Ron Paul
• The Question Was Answered Six Years Ago
• Ron Paul No Racist: NAACP Austin President

Some commentators say Ron Paul should not be allowed to win.
• Ron Paul simply can't be allowed to win Iowa

That's an interesting concept - "can't be allowed to win." Saying that is saying, "Current policies can not be allowed to be changed. The status quo can not be changed." If that's the case, why have elections at all? Why not four more years of Obama since electing anyone but Ron Paul is going to have the effect of maintaining the status quo - the current policies?

The status quo wants to maintain the status quo. To do this, the status quo needs to keep the American public uninformed (barefoot and pregnant) regarding Ron Paul's policies of change. This is because all the other GOP candidates agree with Obama when it comes to the globalist agenda. Ron Paul is the only candidate that offers pro-American policies for the benefit of the America people and other sovereign nations of the world. Ron Paul actually wants to change the game to help restore peace, liberty and prosperity not only to the the United States but to the world.

• Ron Paul Gets 89 Seconds To Speak In CBS Debate
• Scientific Study Confirms Ron Paul Being Given LEAST Face Time In Debates

But the controlled media suppression of Ron Paul is beginning to break. More and more people are awakening to Ron Paul's message of change each and every day as the power of the alternative media grows. Paul still leads in Iowa. And if the media reports his expected win once accomplished and if the GOP does not steal the vote (vote fraud), Ron Paul will be the Republican nominee and the next President of the United States because the people of the United States are sick and tired of the status quo -- the status quo being that those who hold office and those who influence those who hold government office are representing interests other than the interestes of the American people.

As can now be seen by the conspiracy to suppress Ron Paul's message in the media and in debates, this is no 'theory.' Only the uninformed, cult members of the status quo or the conspirators themselves can deny what is now blatantly obvious to not only millions of new Americans this election cycle but to people the world over. The American Establishment (status quo) and its controlled media and political arms are trying to fix this American presidential election by suppressing information and knowledge and by generating a psychological operation (psyop) against the American people by trying to program them into thinking that Ron Paul "can't win." But Paul can win if enough Americans vote for him and if the vote can be secured from a hack by the Establishment (status quo). This theft (vote fraud) of the vote will be difficult to prevent because of the fraud ridden electonic voting machines in the United States.

The difference between elections in the United States and Russia is what again?

• Occupy activists meet in Iowa, plan caucus events / AP
• Iowa GOP worried by hacker threat to caucus vote / Hegelian Dialectic (Problem - Reaction - Solution)
• Putin ejects Kremlin 'puppet master' after protests

It's time to decide, America ...
1) The Status Quo: Endless wars of aggression, limitless enemies, debt and a loss of constitutional government (Bill of Rights suspended) OR
2) Ron Paul: Peace, global trading partners and individual liberty and prosperity under a constitutional government (Bill of Rights intact and in effect).

Newt Gingrich calls Palestinians an 'Invented' People
Palestine in Assyrian empire circa 750 - 625 Palestine in Persian Empire circa 500 B.C
-- The maps above are part of the Perry-Castaρeda Library Map Collection at the University of Texas --

"Remember, there was no Palestine as a state ... It was part of the Ottoman Empire. And I think that we've had an invented Palestinian people, who are in fact Arabs and are historically part of the Arab community, and they had the chance to go many places and for a variety of polical reasons we have sustained this war against Israel now since the 1940s and I think it's tragic."
-- Newt Gingrich in a video interview on the Jewish Channel (, Dec 9, 2011, Week In Review Special Report, in response to the interviewer's question, "Now on Israel. Do you consider yourself a Zionist?"

Really? What are these references to Palestine on these maps of the ancient Assyrian and Persian empires then?

In the International Business Times article, 'Gingrich Calls Palestinians 'Invented' People, Stands by Comments,' by Melanie Jones on December 12, 2011, Ron Paul and Mitt Romney are quoted below in response to this assertion by Gingrich.

"Technically and historically, yes, you know, under the Ottoman Empire the Palestinians didn't have a state," [Ron] Paul said, saying Gingrich's comments were "just stirring up trouble." "But neither did Israel have a state then too."

"If I'm president of the United States, I will exercise sobriety, care, stability and make sure that I don't say anything like this," [Mitt] Romney said. "I'm not a bomb-thrower, rhetorically or literally."

Ron Paul: Foreign Policy & Israel

The Republican Jewish Coalition excluded Ron Paul from its GOP candidate's forum. So here is an interview conducted with Paul to allow the American Republican voters the chance to hear from Ron Paul himself on what America's foreign policy towards Israel should be. It's my personal observation that Israel wants to make its own decisions but it wants the American people to pay for Israel's decisions with American dollars and blood. It's time for America to allow Israel to fight its own battles and to pay for these battles with Israeli treasure and blood. The decision by the Republican Jewish Coalition to deny the American public the right to hear Ron Paul's views on what American foreign policy towards Israeli should be in contrast to the other GOP presidential candidates just proves that this group and others like it do not wish for Americans to be fully informed and have a real choice when electing our president. These Zionist groups advocate for Israelis and Zionism - not Americans and America. This is an American election for an American president. America needs to make policy changes across the board in economics, trade, money supply and in both domestic and foreign policy. Ron Paul is the only GOP candidate advocating for these changes if America is to reclaim its constitution, liberty, sovereignty and prosperity. No American needs to apologize to anyone for defending these things. Be very clear on this. Not all Zionists are Jews and not all Jews are Zionists. Zionism is a political agenda that is opposed by many Jews whether or not they practice Judaism.

Vets for Ron Paul

The majority of Americans want our troops to come home. Even vets. I had breakfast two days ago with two vets of the Korean War. Both want our troops home. The US military is now the tool of Globalists who use it for political, economic and imperialist agendas that do not serve the American people or the citizens of the countries invaded by the US military. People who disagree should first review the definitions for 'defense' and 'imperialism.' Defense of our nation is a constitutional mandate and we'll do it against all enemies both foreign and domestic with the most capable military on the planet. But Americans and America's military must stop participating in foreign wars of aggression as the old Soviet empire used to do. The vets in this video are proof that they are waking up to the reality of this misuse of our military, and for speaking out they deserve our thanks and support.

"... An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy.

"... But the study, by a trio of complex systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, is the first to go beyond ideology to empirically identify such a network of power. It combines the mathematics long used to model natural systems with comprehensive corporate data to map ownership among the world's transnational corporations (TNCs)."

RON PAUL Brilliant in the Iowa GOP Debate
Click for article ...

America needs to bring its troops home from all over the world, now.

"In the counsels of Government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the Military Industrial Complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together."
-- President Eisenhower, January 1961 –

"War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses … I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we'll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.”
-- Major General Smedley Butler, USMC, on Interventionism, Excerpt from a speech delivered in 1933 –

"'Tis our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world."
-- George Washington (1732-1799), U.S. general, president. speech, Sept. 17, 1796. Farewell Address, vol. 35, The Writings of George Washington, ed. John C. Fitzpatrick (1940). --

"Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations - entangling alliances with none."
-- Thomas Jefferson noninterventionist foreign policy position, 1801 inaugural address --

"...Commerce, which if properly managed, will be a better instrument for obliging the interested nations of Europe to treat us with justice."
--Thomas Jefferson (1797) --

"I have ever deemed it fundamental for the United States never to take active part in the quarrels of Europe. Their political interests are entirely distinct from ours. Their mutual jealousies, their balance of power, their complicated alliances, their forms and principles of government, are all foreign to us. They are nations of eternal war."
-- Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), U.S. president. Letter, June 11, 1823, to President James Monroe --

"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by one enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom. The fundamental maxims of her policy would insensibly change from liberty to force....""
-- John Quincy Adams (1821) --

"The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is, in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible."

"Whatever it is that the government does, sensible Americans would prefer that the government do it to somebody else. This is the idea behind foreign policy."

John F. Kennedy said, "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." As this video message makes clear, if the governments of the world shut down the Internet, the peaceful expression of protest and opposition will be forced into the streets. The spirit of freedom and personal dignity that dwells within the core of all humans will not be denied.

"We face, therefore, a moral crisis as a country and a people. It cannot be met by repressive police action ... A great change is at hand, and our task, our obligation, is to make that revolution, that change, peaceful and constructive for all. Those who do nothing are inviting shame, as well as violence. Those who act boldly are recognizing right, as well as reality ..."

-- Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759 --

"I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution ... or have failed their purpose ... or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is 'needed' before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should be attacked for neglecting my constituents' 'interests,' I shall reply that I was informed that their main interest is liberty, and in that cause I am doing the very best I can."
--Barry Goldwater --

When they came for the first amendment, most people were quiet because they weren’t so-called radicals, and criticizing the government was something they never did.

When they came for the second amendment, most people were quiet because they didn't own a gun, and, only criminals, terrorists and extremists owned guns.

When they came for the fourth amendment, most people were quiet because they didn't deal drugs, nor did they engage in terrorist activities. Most people thought they didn't have anything to hide. They thought the fourth amendment only protected the guilty.

When they came for the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth amendments, most people were quiet because they were not 'terrorists' or 'unlawful combatants.' Most people thought our system of justice was in good hands during the War On Terror and the War On Drugs.

When they came for the ninth and tenth amendments, most people did not notice. States rights and power not delegated to the federal government was beyond the understanding and concern of virtually every person walking the streets of America.

Most Americans thought the federal government had their best interests at heart or they were afraid to speak out when they saw tyranny raising its head. The politicians, generals and bureaucrats were nice looking men and women. They were well spoken and well educated. They belonged to our major political parties. They seemed so patriotic and sincerely concerned about our safety. We put our trust in them. Our leaders were fighting America's enemies - not us.

Now that the Bill of Rights is gone, our personal liberty and privacy are gone. Our system of justice is gone. Lincoln's government of the people, by the people and for the people is gone. It has been replaced by what General Franks calls, 'a military form of government.'

No one can speak out about government abuses they have encountered. Speaking out about having been visited by federal law enforcement is now illegal. Now many more people understand that the true domestic enemies were the people they elected and the judges they appointed to pull the levers and wield the power of government and justice.

Most people didn't think about or discuss our Constitution and Bill of Rights because religion and politics always end up in an argument. No one spent time thinking about these things or discussing them. Looking back now, why was that? Why did the people only complain about their government rather than correcting it and holding it accountable? Its clear now that the constitution was not taught in the public school system for a reason. And church … well, our Christian church taught our people to submit and accept persecution because this was the Word. “Don’t protect your family, your home, your life, your liberty and your constitution if doing so prevents you from rendering unto Caesar.”

It's clear to most people now that most Americans never understood the foundation of American liberty and prosperity. Most Americans didn't think beyond voting once every so often. We were very proud that we voted. History now records that most Americans didn't have a clue for whom or what they were voting.

Is all this understanding too late? The Old America we once were so proud of is becoming a story we tell our grand children in quiet whispers in the dark of the attic to give us hope to manage our fear and hide our shame.
