When Sanction of the Victim Becomes Suicide

“It is a moral crime to give money to support ideas with which you disagree. It is a moral crime to give money to support your own destroyers.” – Ayn Rand

How many times can a victim sanction oppressors before it simply is suicide? 

Senator Rand Paul urges his father’s donors to justify and to subsidize political depravity.

He now explicitly defends support for ardent drug warrior Mitt Romney because it means we might get a chance to discuss industrial hemp.

WinLiberty was proud to produce this short piece showing that alone among major party presidential candidates Ron Paul opposes the drug war…and always has taken that essential, principled stand.

In Ayn Rand’s final, major public speech she discussed sanction of the victim.

“It is a moral crime to give money to support ideas with which you disagree. It is a moral crime to give money to support your own destroyers.”

You can watch Ayn Rand’s talk here.

Most Ron Paul supporters quite properly have been confused and many are outraged by Senator Rand Paul’s endorsement of Mitt Romney.  In an attempt to quell the furor, the junior Paul just held another soft ball “interview” to an overly helpful Kurt Wallace where almost nothing of substance was discussed.  Almost nothing.  What the Senator made very clear is that he considers it necessary to subsidize immorality because otherwise it’s impossible to get anything done.

I also interpret the Senator as distinctly saying alliance with immorality is something his dad chooses all the time.  Listen to the interview here and decide for yourself if that is what Rand Paul says and believes.

Ask yourself if the Senator’s convenient and oh so mainstream Republican support of industrial hemp makes it okay to sanction the Republican nominee’s support for continuation of the drug war.

Watch another short film WinLiberty produced about the Drug War:

What is essential, inviolable principle and what is practical politics?  How much rape, pillage, mayhem and murder is okay before someone says it’s not okay?  How many sublime, shady and just plain slimy politicians can one climb into bed with before one is just a dishonest whore? And I don’t mean to impugn decent, hard working prostitutes by comparison with Senator Rand Paul.

I would have asked gay bashing Senator Paul some very different questions.

And I continue to ask: Where the hell is Ron Paul?

The Ron Paul R3volution always has been about principle.  It’s always been led by The Many — the thousands of donors and activists who ARE the movement, this cause commonly called The Ron Paul R3volution — not by some timid politicians and their self-serving political hacks.

It’s long, long past time for Ron Paul to come out and speak for himself…his stand ins simply can’t cut it.

This isn’t about party or party hacks.  This is about principle.
