Ron Paul attacks Sarah Palin as 'country club' Republican

By Thomas Lifson
What to make of Ron Paul? The word erratic comes to mind. On domestic spending, he is a righteous guardian of small government, while on foreign affairs he is a dangerous isolationist who believes the world will leave us alone if we just tend to our own knitting. And as far as Sarah Palin and her supporters go, he is a space cadet, apparently. An interview with Politico published today contains this startling assertion from Paul:As for soon-to-be departing Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Paul dismisses her supporters as "more establishment, conventional Country-Club type of... (Read Full Article)
my comment:
Unless I am missing something about Sarah, what Doctor Paul is doing here is stirring it up.  He wants us to see Sarah come swinging for the fence, roaring like a mighty tigress.  We shall see a coming together of the blue collar conservatives would be one way to call it, I call it being part of the Quest to bring this Nation back to it's roots of Freedom and Liberty.  First order of business, change the tax structure from an excise tax on our own production to one of equal fairness with imports sharing the same load.  FairTax Please!!!  www.fairtax.org

The words are from writings of Alexis De Tocqueville.  Please go to the Blogg and read it all.  It is a very educational document on how, why and where we have gotten to as a Nation, as a people.

New despotism: "…(Government) takes upon itself alone to secure their (the peoples) gratifications, and to watch over their fate. That power is absolute, minute, regular, provident, and mild. It would be like the authority of a parent, if, like that authority, its object was to prepare men for manhood; but it seeks on the contrary to keep them in perpetual childhood:...
..."After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp, and fashioned them at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided: men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting: such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to be nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd."...
..."A constitution, which should be republican in its head and ultra-monarchical in all its other parts, has ever appeared to me to be a short-lived monster. The vices of rulers and the ineptitude of the people would speedily bring about its ruin; and the nation, weary of its representatives and of itself, would create freer institutions, or soon return to stretch itself at the feet of a single master."
