Ron Paul, Please Pull Out of the Race.
You can’t reason with stupid. Why is he wasting his time and all those donors’ money? Just let it go, old man. Let. It. Go. The good guys lost. Years ago. The whole shithouse is coming down and the truth is you couldn’t have stopped it anyway. So let it go. If Ron Paul is so deluded as to believe that these morons can be reasoned with or that they exist in small enough numbers for him to overcome in the Republican primaries, then he has no business being anywhere near the nuclear launch codes. Delusion is delusion. I’d rather have a self-serving sex-addict like Bill Clinton be President — someone who knows how stupid Americans are and takes advantage of them (“I feel your pain.”) — than some guy who sees some issues clearly but is so deluded he can’t even adequately discern the intellectual demographics of his own country.
Personally, I take a lot of satisfaction in watching witless American rubes impose financial disaster and a police state on themselves. It’s called schadenfreude, I suppose, but I just like seeing the universe operate a certain way. Dr. Paul should too. He’s got his gold. He’ll be fine. And no one can say he didn’t try. He’s been warning for 4 decades about what was coming and explaining why. He’s done more than any reasonable person, of which America has very few, could ask of him. So now let it go, Ron. Just let it go. Do as Fred Reed recommends and
…enjoy the onrushing atrophy. Is the United States going to hell, western civilization being subverted, knaves scuttling like fetid crabs through the corridors of power and nitwits ravaging the schools in the manner of monkeys in a fruit store? (Yes, actually.) Relish it for the splendid historical theater that it is. A better spectacle there cannot be.
I say this seriously. If you regard yourself as audience rather than participant, the accelerating collapse becomes entertainment. You read each morning’s headlines with zest to see what new and preposterous clownishness erupts from Washington. It is high comedy.
Just go away, dude. You tried, you failed. Now sit back and profit from the collapse. But for God’s sake, shut the hell up and stop trying to save these fools. They don’t want what you’re selling, and frankly, I don’t want you trying to sell it to them. I’m invested in the collapse of their civilization, too.
