Ron Paul – 2012 TIME 100: The Most Influential People in the World

18 Apr

Ralph Nader explains why Ron Paul makes Time‘s list of 100 most influential people of 2012.

… people like a politician without marbles in his mouth.

Paul does not censor himself. He comes across as sincere, earnest and independent of his party’s fat cats. In the debates, only he called out the American Empire’s meddling in the business of countless nations around the world. He assails the Pentagon’s bloated budgets and has worked with liberal Democrat Barney Frank to shrink the military-industrial complex. He wants to end our boomeranging wars.

Paul, 76, draws a distinction between libertarian conservatives and those corporatist conservatives entrenching a corporate state in which Big Business merges with Big Government.

    Robert Steele Vivas is right about needing a TEAM, a sunshine cabinet, a complete and coherent picture of what life could be like, and very quickly too, if we could persuade people this summer that both reason and conscience, truth and traditions, require an immediate end to wars and empire plus a carefully negotiated universal nuclear disarmament.
    Ending the corrupting lie of corporate personhood could be a footnote, an important but easily accomplished process, in the midst of moving decisively toward peace. Anthony Kennedy could see the corruption and change his vote, 5/4 reversal! Thomas could see that corporate personhood is, in fact, totally “unoriginal” and curse it: a 6/3 decision might be just around the corner.

    The Time list is a strange mixture, but I was surprised and happy to see Ron Paul on it. Let’s hope his influence grows and grows. All this war-mongering is just a waste of human life and resources.
