Ron Paul’s 2002 Predictions

This entry is part 3 of 40 in the series 2012A

Ruth W writes:
Ron Paul gave these predictions in April 2002. Is he a disciple?

What do you think?

It depends on how one would define disciple. He is definitely an intelligent man who unwaveringly stands by his beliefs. He sees the genius of the U.S. Constitution and many of the flaws in this country that can be corrected by it. He has taken the initiative to formulate ideas to correct many of our problems and then doggedly proceeded to move forward to plant them in the minds of all who will listen.

Right or wrong he is following the highest he knows with great determination and that is the path all must follow to arrive at true discipleship.

That said, let us take an objective look at the predictions you referenced. I watched the video and found it interesting and wondered about the feedback was on it on the web so I Googled it.

I found it interesting that his predictions were highly praised everywhere I looked, though I must say all this praise seemed to come from strong supporters. On the other hand, there seemed to be a famine of commentators making a critical analysis of his speech. It was either Ron Paul is great and like a prophet – or nothing. It almost made me wonder if non believers are afraid to criticize or analyze Ron Paul.

It therefore appears that I may be one of the few to write a critical objective analysis of Paul’s April 26, 2002 predictions. Keep in mind that the time frame he gave for these was 5-10 years and we are now in the tenth year – 2012. Here goes.

Ron Paul:
Our government intervention in the economy and in the private affairs of citizens, and the internal affairs of foreign countries, leads to uncertainty and many unintended consequences.

I’m on board with him here. This is certainly true. In fact any action made at any time, anywhere can lead to unintended consequences.

Ron Paul:
Here are some of the consequences about which we should be concerned.

I predict U.S. taxpayers will pay to rebuild Palestine, both the West Bank and the Gaza, as well as Afghanistan. U.S. taxpayers paid to bomb these areas, so we will be expected to rebuild them.

This was kind of a no-brainer for anytime there is destruction anywhere in the world our tax dollars are sent to help. As the video noted Obama promised $900 Million to rebuild Gaza but can’t find any evidence that the aid materialized. Most of our aid has gone to provide for the necessities of life there.

Of course we spent money rebuilding Afghanistan. We always do this after a conflict ever since World War II.

Ron Paul:
Peace, of sorts, will come to the Middle East, but will be short-lived. There will be big promises of more U.S. money and weapons flowing to Israel and to Arab countries allied with the United States.

There was no peace. Conflict has never ceased there and of course we continued to support Israel and friendly Arab nations just as we always have.

Ron Paul:
U.S. troops and others will be used to monitor the “peace.”

The video gives strange “proof” of this statement. They present an article that states that the United States has helped monitor peace there for 30 years. If true Paul was merely stating what was already in existence to some degree. Actually, I do not recall reading of any monitoring that our actual troops have been doing between Israel and Palestine.

Ron Paul:
In time, an oil boycott will be imposed, with oil prices soaring to historic highs.

No oil boycott so far and it was a no-brainer to predict historic oil prices sometime in the next ten years. I predict we’ll have historic oil prices again within ten years.

Ron Paul:
Current Israeli-United States policies will solidify Arab Muslim nations in their efforts to avenge the humiliation of the Palestinians. That will include those Muslim nations that in the past have fought against each other.

The Muslim nations are no more unified against us than in 2002.

Ron Paul:
Some of our moderate Arab allies will be overthrown by Islamic fundamentalists.

We’ve had the Arab Spring with some overthrows but this seemed to come from the people as a whole rather than fundamentalists. The fundamentalists will surely grab for all the power they can. Time will tell on this.

Ron Paul:
The U.N. will continue to condemn, through resolutions, Israeli-U.S. policies in the Middle East, and they will be ignored.

This is like predicting France will continue to make wine. Of course, this is to be expected.

Ron Paul:
Some European countries will clandestinely support the Muslim countries and their anti-Israel pursuits.

This was already happening when Paul made the prediction.

Ron Paul:
China, ironically assisted by American aid, much more openly will sell to militant Muslims the weapons they want, and will align herself with the Arab nations.

There’s evidence that China has sold weapons to militant Muslims but have used their own money for this – not U.S. aid.

Ron Paul:
The United States, with Tony Blair as head cheerleader, will attack Iraq without proper authority, and a major war, the largest since World War II, will result.

We did attack Iraq as many expected at the time of the prediction but it was not a major war and not the largest since World War II. Vietnam and the Korean war were much larger. In Vietnam we had over 500,000 troops and lost over 50,000 soldiers. We had about 125,000 in Iraq and only lost about 4,400 troops.

Ron Paul:
Major moves will be made by China, India, Russia, and Pakistan in Central Asia to take advantage of the chaos for the purpose of grabbing land, resources, and strategic advantages sought after for years.

Haven’t seen any of these major moves. China has attempted to purchase additional oil and commodities though. Haven’t seen land grabs.

Ron Paul:
The Karzai government will fail, and U.S. military presence will end in Afghanistan.

Not happened yet.

Ron Paul:
An international dollar crisis will dramatically boost interest rates in the United States.

Didn’t happen. Interest rates have been very low over the past 10 years.

Ron Paul:
Price inflation, with a major economic downturn, will decimate U.S. Federal Government finances, with exploding deficits and uncontrolled spending.

We all knew that “exploding deficits and uncontrolled spending” would continue. I’ll bet even Ron Paul is surprised at how much Obama has spent.

We’ve definitely had an economic downturn but inflation has continued about the normal rate. There’s always some inflation.

Ron Paul:
Federal Reserve policy will continue at an expanding rate, with massive credit expansion, which will make the dollar crisis worse. Gold will be seen as an alternative to paper money as it returns to its historic role as money.

Credit is tighter now than when the prediction was made. Gold is seen as a good investment but it is not an alternative to money and has not returned to use as money except maybe for a handful of private transactions.

Ron Paul:
Erosion of civil liberties here at home will continue as our government responds to political fear in dealing with the terrorist threat by making generous use of the powers obtained with the Patriot Act.

I haven’t seen any “generous use of the powers obtained with the Patriot Act” though every time Congress is in session our liberties are at risk.

Ron Paul:
The draft will be reinstated, causing domestic turmoil and resentment.

This definitely didn’t happen.

Ron Paul:
Many American military personnel and civilians will be killed in the coming conflict.

If he’s talking about Iraq the loss of military personnel was very low compared with wars of the past.

Ron Paul:
The leaders of whichever side loses the war will be hauled into and tried before the International Criminal Court for war crimes.

There was no International Criminal Court set up for Iraq war crimes.

Ron Paul:
The United States will not officially lose the war, but neither will we win. Our military and political leaders will not be tried by the International Criminal Court.

We did win the war in a couple weeks. Keeping the peace was the hard part. Our military and political leaders were not tried. No one of substance expected they would be.

Ron Paul:
The Congress and the President will shift radically toward expanding the size and scope of the Federal Government. This will satisfy both the liberals and the conservatives.

All thinkers at the time saw that indeed saw the government was expanding, though the radical part didn’t come in until Obama was president. He was right that this brought satisfaction to liberals but wrong on conservatives. I do not know one conservative who is happy about the overall radical expansion, especially the most radical part of all – Obamacare.

Ron Paul:
Military and police powers will grow, satisfying the conservatives. The welfare state, both domestic and international, will expand, satisfying the liberals. Both sides will endorse military adventurism overseas.

The video references The National Defense Authorization Act which gives the President power to detain U.S. citizens without a trial if they are suspected of terrorism. This fine-tunes legislation (AUMF) that was passed Sept 14, 2011 so this power was already in place.

The national welfare state expanded in the U.S. but it was forced to contract in numerous other nations facing a financial meltdown. We have had a below average amount of military adventurism since the Iraq war began.

Ron Paul:
In due course, the Constitution will continue to be steadily undermined and the American Republic further weakened.

This has been going on for 200 years with a temporary reversals or slowdowns occurring now and then.

Ron Paul:
During the next decade, the American people will become poorer and less free, while they become more dependent on the government for economic security.

Perhaps his most accurate statement so far.

Ron Paul:
The war will prove to be divisive, with emotions and hatred growing between the various factions and special interests that drive our policies in the Middle East.

All wars are divisive, except those which are a life and death struggle for survival and even these are somewhat divisive.

Ron Paul:
Agitation from more class warfare will succeed in dividing us domestically, and believe it or not, I expect lobbyists will thrive more than ever during the dangerous period of chaos.

This was a pretty accurate description of what has happened. He ends his predictions with a successful one.

I do not understand the awe that Ron Paul followers have about his prophetic abilities as the majority of his predictions here were either incorrect or can be argued to be so. I’d say that the average political savvy person could be just as accurate if he were to make predictions for the next ten years.

Although not impressed with his prophetic abilities I do give him credit for raising a warning voice of various real dangers that confronted us in 2002 and still apply to us today. Most people in our Congress just want to get along and do not want to ruffle any feathers but this does not stop Mr. Paul from speaking his mind. We need more representatives who are willing to speak up against government encroachment.

People Taking Charge

This entry is part 30 of 31 in the series 2011B

In this book we have covered numerous ideas for change that could benefit the country. There are others out there presenting many other ideas good and bad, practical and impractical. Every so often we hear some thinker giving out an idea that sounds great. When we hear such a thought we often exclaim to the TV, radio or book, “Yes!!! Lets do this!”

Unfortunately, ninety-nine times out of a hundred, all that was presented was an idea. There was no plan of action and no next step. There was nothing you as an individual could do except say, “Right on!” Then, as you soon discovered, giving moral support was not enough. Months, years and decades pass and not much seemed to change. The idea is still good and still out there but just an idea floating out there in thin air it is not doing much good.

It is ironic that there are millions of people who can recognize a good idea and would be willing to put some effort towards implementing it if they knew with some degree of certainty that their individual effort would actually help make some progress. Instead, all we hear is “We should do this” and “We should do that,” and no feasible direction as to how to get the job done.

There is one important thing that needs to happen to create the force necessary to implement positive change which is this.

A national organization needs to be set up dedicated to changing direction of policies in a positive way that a majority of citizens will support and from which they will benefit.

Now there may be hundreds of organizations that claim to be national that think they fit this criteria so let us clarify some attributes this organization must possess.

(1) It should seek to work with majority will. If the people are going to go up against a wrong thinking Congress, bureaucrats, and pressure groups then they should do so with issues that have majority support. Without the majority on their side there is little hope of challenging the Powers-That-Be.

(2) All their objectives should be of benefit to the majority.

(3) Each objective that requires participation should have a step by step plan to reach the goal.

(4) The organization should be as inclusive as possible and provide people of differing views to advance their agenda as long as majority will is recognized and pursued.

(5) The organization as a whole will not endorse or support any political party or view except to encourage majority will. It will be seen as a place where good ideas originate and are acted upon. It will be more of a place from which action springs rather than one that endorses viewpoints.

(6) Divisions within the organization will not seek to implement many different views or policies as do political parties but will work on one major goal at a time. Limiting the scope of goals will allow us to cast out a net gathering the largest possible number of supporters on each project. For instance, John may be working on Project A, but has nothing to do with Project B which does not enthuse him.

(7) When this organization is effectively established then it should have one or more meetings per week and over 90% of the people in the country should be within driving distance to a meeting place. Some things that will take place in the meetings are:
(A) Updates on news and projects of interest.
(B) Lectures on topics of interest
(C) Classes on pertinent subjects
(D) Brainstorming on how to take the next step on various projects
(E) Working on projects or assigning volunteers work to be done.

Creating such a far-reaching organization may seem blue sky in itself but I think the time is right for something like this to surface. When the people see that such an organization can be more powerful than any individual legislator or bureaucrat then many will get excited and motivated.

Such an organization cannot just materialize all ready to go in the blink of an eye but must be created over a period of time. We must first begin with a successful group in one or more cities and when the details of operation are successfully implemented then a quick expansion can be accomplished.

A call to action over the Internet, television, book or occasional get-together is not enough. People must have some physical place to go to rub shoulders with like-minded thinkers and develop the chemistry necessary to move to action.

Here is a synopsis of the suggested group that I plan on promoting after the publication of this book.

Name: The Majority Speaks

Purpose: To provide a medium for people to work to promote causes that benefit the country as a whole that are supported by the majority of the people.


(1) To establish a working group in every major population area.

(2) To have weekly meetings

(3) To educate the members who will educate their friends.

(4) Have brainstorming sessions

(5) To provide a workplace where members can contribute their labor on projects they endorse.

(6) Place pressure on legislators to introduce and support beneficial legislation.

(7) Raise funds

(8) Link with and support other groups headed the right direction as well as other chapters of the main group.

(9) Work with the media to achieve positive publicity.

(10) Sponsor local debates to help center attention on positive change.

(11) Work cooperatively to establish a strong internet presence.

(12) Create videos, audios and press releases for distribution.

(13) As funds become available run ads in various media to promote the group and its causes.

(14) Raise the political and economic consciousness of the people. Make them aware of their power to create change.

The Founding Fathers did everything in their power to create a country where the final power rested in the hands of the people. Since then the people have lost sight of that power and abnegated it to their leaders. This was a mistake on our part.

The Founding Fathers told us that the price of freedom is “eternal vigilance.” The full truth is that the price of anything that improves our quality of life requires that same vigilance. We cannot just sit back and let George do it. We the people must always be prepared to take the reins the moment that those who are employed by us fall behind on their duty.

That moment is now.

If the emphasis in The Majority Speaks organization is on projects that have majority support, does this not rule out many good projects that are beyond the realization of the majority which would still be beneficial for the country? After all, the majority was against Galileo when he tried to convince the world of what he saw through his telescope.

This is a good point so let me clarify a few things. The first and all important point to understand is that majority will is not emphasized because it is always correct or the best path to follow. There are two reasons to respect it.

(1) It is very difficult for any ideas from the grassroots, or people, to gain any traction without working with majority support – and even then the path is far from easy. This difficulty does not apply to those in positions of great power. They can pass a law or make a decree and people must follow, even if the majority is unhappy with the direction.

(2) Majority will takes us in the direction of common sense unless the majority are deceived. In this case a mere exposure to the truth where understanding is gained turns the majority around almost instantly.

Let us return to the Galileo example for a moment. In his day the scientists as well as the common people almost universally believed that the moon had a flat smooth surface. As soon as Galileo looked through his telescope and saw the craters of the moon he knew instantly that this assumption was wrong. Seeing is believing, right?

Not for the Powers-That-Be. Some Vatican scientists refused to look through his telescope to see the craters of the moon or the fact that the moons of Jupiter circle around the planet just as the earth would circle around the sun. Instead of just looking through the telescope to discover the truth they preferred to remain in their ignorance and condemn Galileo to torture or prison if he did not renounce what he saw with his own eyes.

Yes, for a small moment in time Galileo was a minority of one, but not for long. The telescope was now in existence and there was no calling it back. There were others with curiosity who were willing to look through telescopes and discover truth that could not be denied. Then it was not long before not only the majority, but most of the world believed the moon had craters and the earth circled around the sun.

What does this story tell us about the majority? It tells us that they can have wrong beliefs and direction if they are in ignorance or deceived but when the truth is revealed they will accept in the end. The majority will follow the common sense path so long as they are not deceived and have the basic facts.

The group to be created will not only seek to work with obvious majority will but seek to dispel illusion so majority desire can be manifest.

Here are some desires that are supported by the majority. These are selected because government can have some influence on their fulfillment or lack thereof.

• The desire for freedom
• The desire for financial security and abundance.
• The desire to be protected from violence and crime.
• The desire to have good health and healthy environment.
• The desire for a good education, especially for our children.

More could probably be listed but these are the basic ones on which a government may have a positive or negative effect.

Any plan that enhances any of these five categories works with majority desire. The problem arises when a solid objective is put forward but not understood correctly by the people. Because of bad press they may think the idea may bring less freedom when it will bring more. In this case there is not much of a chance of getting the idea accepted until the illusion is dispelled.

On the reverse, there may be an objective that is popular because the people are deceived into thinking it will enhance freedom when it will really enslave. Again the solution to this illusion is education.

The truth always sets us free and this is why The Majority Speaks (or whatever the final organization will be called) will educate people to eliminate ignorance and illusion and work with the will of the majority when that will supports the good, the beautiful and the true.

To have faith in the eventual right direction of the majority is to have faith in good that is in us all. Overall, most people are good and want what’s best for the country, their families and themselves and they will choose correctly when they see correctly.

A few hundred years ago the majority thought the sun moved around the earth and that the earth was the center of the universe. A little instrument of truth (the telescope) changed all that. But before that change could happen the people had to be approached at where they were in understanding – not where they were not. Let us therefore respect where the majority is and educate and enlighten them so the path of true liberty and abundance becomes clear.

The majority will always follow truth when it is clearly revealed and understood.

The Economy – One Last Chapter

This entry is part 7 of 50 in the series 2011A

My friends. I have not yet gotten around to publishing my book – Molecular Politics because it needed one more chapter dealing with our monetary system. After a lot of reflection and study of the subject I am finally ready to write it. Here is the first installment.

An Out of Control Economy

We have to do something about our out-of-control borrowing and spending or this time period will mark the real beginning to our troubles instead of the end of a financial downturn.
There are several things on which the vast majority agrees. The problem is there is major disagreement on how to proceed with these agreed upon problems.

(1) The weakened dollar needs strengthened.

(2) The government spends too much and the federal budget needs some common sense control just as a family budget does.

(3) We do not want to borrow so much that our children and grandchildren will become poor debtors.

(4) It is dangerous to borrow so much money from countries that are potential enemies, let alone from friends.

(5) We pay way too much interest on borrowed money, currently around $450,000,000,000 a year and if interest rates or the debt ceiling changes this could go way up. This is an insane situation.

(6) There is far too much waste and fraud with taxpayer’s money.

(7) There is too much frivolous spending and political paybacks that add to the wasted spending.

Almost every politician gives lip service to these causes of financial problems but few will support any kind of action to solve them


Because any time there is a cutback in spending some individuals and groups will feel threatened with loss. – then, after that threat occurs, these people will lash out in every conceivable way at the politicians who tried to be fiscally responsible.

We do not see many attempts at fiscal restraint in the federal government because representatives are not limited by a balanced budget amendment. The case is different with many of the states, however, where a balanced budget is required.

Therefore when we had the financial disaster that started in 2008, even though all governments were short of funds, the federal government borrowed and spent more than ever. A shortage of funds provided no incentive to conserve spending for politicians were terrified of voters complaining of cutbacks.

On the other hand, some states were forced to make cuts in spending whether the politicians wanted to or not.

In my home state of Idaho we have a balanced budget amendment. Since we were hit hard by the Great Recession like everyone else action had to be taken. Governor Butch Otter had to look at ways to increase revenue and cut spending.

To increase revenue he proposed a one-penny increase in the gasoline tax. When he did this you’d think he was ordering a pound of flesh from each of us. Both conservatives and liberals cried foul and the proposal was dead in the water.

Then to offset cuts made to parks and recreation Otter increased various fees for camping, registration and services. Again there was a outcry, especially from senior citizens who had to pay more to enjoy Idaho’s beautiful campgrounds.

He then talked of turning some underfunded campgrounds over to private enterprise who would keep them open for a profit.

This time there was great suspicion from the Left who does not trust that business has the public interest as a priority.

Because of the budget shortfall Otter found he had to look at every possible avenue of spending when considering cuts. Finally he had to look at the sacred cow of education. He cut education by about 7.5%. He explained that this was not as bad as it sounded because the percentage of the budget dedicated to education actually increased. The problem was that the budget itself was much less because of shortfalls.

Again, there was a major outcry, especially from those involved in education. Letter after letter appeared in local papers making known their displeasure and painting a very undesirable picture of our governor. Here are a few things they said.

(1) We should have used our reserve account for emergencies to keep education fully funded.

The trouble with this idea is hard times are continuing and the reserve account may soon be gone no matter what we do.

(2) The governor was accused of supporting funding for his pet projects while leaving education out to hang.

The trouble with this argument is that no governor is squeaky clean enough to escape this accusation. Since values are a matter of opinion then those hit by cuts will always think money is not fairly spent or distributed.

(3) The governor was accused of being anti education or hating education.

I don’t think this is true of any governor in the union and is a cheap shot.

(4) Many liberals voiced this cut and dried, yet simple criticism. The governor and legislators lacked guts enough to just raise taxes enough so cuts in education will not be necessary.

Even if the conservative governor was willing to do this he would have been crucified by his own party and may have lost his bid for reelection.

What do we learn from this reflection on state and federal spending?

We see that one of the reasons the federal government overspends so much is they see what happens to State leaders who do support legitimate spending measures and then get attacked for it. It just seems so much easier for them to borrow more money, supply the needed funding and be done with it.

Except this time round we are reaching a critical mass in borrowing. Even the general public, which usually does not pay much attention to financial matters, is waking up to this and demanding action.

The problem is that many will complain no matter what cuts are made.

So far we have presented some ideas of what can be done to restore financial security, but this will not be enough. Sooner or later we will have to apply one more all-important measure – a reform of the monetary system.

Some think that this is wishful thinking, but I submit that it can be done and will present a plan that can turn this country around and head it in the direction of its true destiny – the economic light of the world.

Predictions 2011, Part 3

This entry is part 3 of 50 in the series 2011A

Now let’s look at the new Republican Congress.

Overall the results of this will be predictable.  The Democrats will find them very frustrating as well as many on the Right who do not see as much reform as they desire.

Obama will try the divide and conquer approach by befriending some who he sees as cooperative to entice them to opposing those who he will label as far right.

On the other hand, there will be Democrats who will side with the Tea Party views in the hope this will secure re-election.  Then there are a handful who see that overspending must be curtailed.

The Left and the mainstream media will attempt to blame all that goes wrong on the new Congress but, even though this will have some effect, it will not take hold as it did in the days of Newt Gingrich.

The Economy
The greatest short term threats to the economy for this year will be from outside influences such as natural or manmade disaster and the threat of new conflict.  Outside of this the economy will actually show some improvement due to business optimism because of the new Republican Congress.  This will not produce a miracle but it will hold a shaky economy together for one more year.  Next year at this time we will have a lot better feel about where the near term economy seems to be going.

Possible Conflicts
North Korea and Iran will both rattle their sabers but we will not go to war this year.  One of the reasons is that China warns us against it and they are becoming so powerful that we are afraid to stir up a possible conflict with them.  There will be growing concern that they could turn aggressive, but on the positive side there is a growing number of Chinese who desire a peaceful Democracy.  We can only hope that this aspect of the people will prevail.

There will be a number of medical advances related to technology such as artificial eyesight, artificial limbs and nano technology.

UFO sightings will be up and one in particular will be difficult to explain away.

New particle discoveries will be made at the Large Hadron Collider at Cern but they will not find the Higgs particle this year.

Lady Gaga will make even stranger attempts to get attention causing some to think she is not stable.

Reality TV will finally begin to lose some of its popularity, thank God.

To be continued…

Precarious Future

This entry is part 18 of 34 in the series 2010B

Posted June 6, 2010
Good to hear from you again Blayne. I was just thinking of you the other day wondering if you were still around. Since you are reading some recent keys writings you might want to read some of the local posts I where I did battle with Statesman readers over political issues.

Both you and Maryellen have asked my opinion of recent issues and where we are headed as a country.

As I have said many times specific future events are often impossible to predict because of all the variables. No person who has ever lived has been proven to be right on them consistently. Even the Masters stay away from specific details and rely on the reoccurrence of cycles and evolutionary developments for most of their accurate prophecies.

Right now the economy is certainly in a precarious state. If we had some type of perfect storm occur the economy of the whole world could descend to chaos. If there was just one major event investor fears could be triggered and our economy could sink into a depression much worse than we now have.

If we just continue as is with the tremendous overspending then our economy will continue to sink.

There are two things that give me optimism.

First, at the moment, I do have a sense of well-being and feel no sense of panic for the immediate future. I would interpret this to mean that we yet have some time to set things straight. On the other hand, a powerful unforeseen incident affecting the financial world could change direction quickly.

Secondly, people are waking up to our precarious financial situation and are starting to demand that our representatives be more responsible.

Congress has ultimate power over the budget and if there is a major political shift in the 2010 election solid financial steps could be taken even if Obama wants to continue reckless spending. Such spending could come to a halt.

I would say that we have a 50/50 chance of coming out of this financial situation without having a great depression. A lot depends on the developing power of public consciousness on financial issues. The salvation of heightened public consciousness is racing against the opening of a bottomless pit of financial mismanagement.

Less talked about is freedom. Some of our freedoms may be in more danger than our money. There is also a race against time to prevent many of them from being taken away.

Concerning the oil spill …

Some people think the may be a conspiracy behind it or possible sabotage was involved. I do not believe this is the case, but I do think that there are many who are false environmentalists who seek greater power over our lives who have been waiting for a major event like this to occur. This and other catastrophes will be used by them to increase their foothold of power.

The lights of the earth must also use events like these to the advantage of the country and the world. We can use them as an excuse to develop more nuclear power or to drill in safer areas like ANWR.

The statement is ever true that evil triumphs when good men do nothing. Those pushing us to the edge of disaster press forward with about five times the energy of those who claim to want greater freedom and responsibility. This is somewhat disheartening, but the good news is there is a sleeping giant out there that can be awakened. Let us hope the responsible people of the country can wake up before it is too late.

I’m starting my television show Tuesday where I will be presenting Molecular politics. I’ll post the exact time and link later and members can watch it on the Internet.
