Senator Rand Paul weighs in on direction of Republican party, talks of a 2016 presidential bid with ABC News’ Jonathan Karl.
When you look at the psychology of these supporters, it is clear to see that people are driven by the same blind trust and devotion to government.
This is not to say that Obama’s base is the only perpetrator of this behavior. It is truly a country-wide and bipartisan problem. People all over the country are finding themselves and their own happiness to be more deeply affected by the actions of our government – and fearful of, “the other party.”
When we are driven to believe that any one party, candidate, or government is the source of our happiness, we have succumbed to tyranny already. It should not matter who is elected in a Presidential race; our personal happiness should be more dependent upon factors that we can control.
Dr. Bruce H. Lipton discusses how we need not argue over whether small government, or big government will prevail. Rather it’s the issue of corruption of government that needs to be addressed. Government has a place in society just as the central nervous system has a place in the human body.
President Obama urges Congress to act now on one thing that everyone agrees on — ensuring that taxes don’t go up on 98 percent of all Americans and 97 percent of small businesses at the end of the year. On Friday, the President had a constructive meeting with Congressional leaders on finding ways to reduce our deficit in a way that strengthens our economy and protects our middle class, and he looks forward to working together to get this done.

John Weeks: The fiscal cliff has simply been created by Congress in order to push austerity which is no solution during a recession
“That’s great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane - Lenny Bruce is not afraid. Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn - world serves its own needs, regardless of your own needs. Feed it up a knock, speed, grunt no, strength no. Ladder structure clatter with fear of height, down height. Wire in a fire, represent the seven games in a government for hire and a combat site. Left her, wasn’t coming in a hurry with the furiesbreathing down your neck. Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered crop. Look at that low plane! Fine then. Uh oh, overflow, population, common group, but it’ll do. Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed. Tell me with the rapture and the reverent in the right – right. You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty psyched.” ~ R.E.M
“It is said that [Robin Hood] fought against the looting rulers and returned the loot to those who had been robbed, but that is not the meaning of the legend which has survived. He is remembered, not as a champion of property, but as a champion of need, not as a defender of the robbed, but as a provider of the poor. He is held to be the first man who assumed a halo of virtue by practicing charity with wealth which he did not own, by giving away goods which he had not produced, by making others pay for the luxury of his pity.
He is the man who became the symbol of the idea that need, not achievement, is the source of rights, that we don’t have to produce, only to want, that the earned does not belong to us, but the unearned does. He became a justification for every mediocrity who, unable to make his own living, has demanded the power to dispose of the property of his betters, by proclaiming his willingness to devote his life to his inferiors at the price of robbing his superiors.
It is this foulest of creatures — the double-parasite who lives on the sores of the poor and the blood of the rich — whom men have come to regard as a moral ideal. And this has brought us to a world where the more a man produces, the closer he comes to the loss of all his rights, until, if his ability is great enough, he becomes a rightless creature delivered as prey to any claimant — while in order to be placed above rights, above principles, above morality, placed where anything is permitted to him, even plunder and murder, all a man has to do is be in need.
Do you wonder why the world is collapsing around us? That is what I am fighting… Until men learn that of all human symbols, Robin Hood is the most immoral and the most contemptible, there will be no justice on earth and no way for mankind to survive.”
– Ragnar Danneskjöld in Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged, Part II, Chapter VII
