Ted Cruz and Ron Paul ARE scary ... to Democrats!


"Moderate Republicans sat on a wall, 
Moderate Republicans had a great fall. 
All the king's horses and all the king's men 
Couldn't put Moderate Republicans together again."

No one doubts that the Washington Post, mouthpiece for the liberal-progressive dictatorship, activates all their horses and men to influence the Republican Party's presidential nomination process. During the next couple years we can expect to see the Post publish many articles like the following: Influential Republicans working to draft Jeb Bush into 2016 presidential race.

Amazing as it seems, there actually are a few who call themselves "Republicans" who would prefer another Bush.  But these few are likely under the intoxicating influence of propaganda like the Washington Post's articles.  Most Republicans are more clear-headed.

Fact of political life: If the Republican Party nominated another Bush ... so much support would be lost that the party might well face the destiny of the once influential early 19th Century Whig Party.  Another Bush candidacy and a Washington Post propagandist could snicker fiendishly and publish a book titled: "The Disappearance of the Republican Party."

Millions of voters who don't want another Democrat in the White House also don't want another Bush in the White House. Conservative voters who held their noses and voted for Dole, McCain, and Romney because they believed these "moderates" would at least be better than a liberal dictator are loath to hold their noses again.  You can only hold your nose so long before craving fresh air.

The Washington Post article linked above tries to get us to believe that real Republicans are scared of libertarian-conservatives like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. We can laugh at the Washington Post because the joke is on them.  Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are the real Republicans, and all the king's horses and men will not be able to put back together again the "sitting on the wall" wing of the Republican Party.

If you feel guided to be active in politics to defend yourself and your loved ones from the Democratic Party's liberal-progressive dictatorship and past Republican wall sitting, make yourself a sure winner by studying our Course in Political Miracles.




The device which even more deeply prepares freedom lovers for success, A Course in Miracles , talks about our ultimate need to free ourselves from every kind of slavery:

You have been told to bring the darkness to the light, and guilt to holiness. And you have also been told that error must be corrected at its source. Therefore, it is the tiny part of your self, the little thought that seems split off and separate, that the Holy Spirit needs. The rest is fully in God's keeping, and needs no guide. But this wild and delusional thought needs help, because, in its delusions, it thinks it is the Son of God, whole and omnipotent, sole ruler of the kingdom it set apart to tyrannize by madness into obedience and slavery.

Will Rand Paul and Ted Cruz make a difference?


"Politics is not for everyone."

Maybe not for a desert hermit. But all human interaction involves politics. There are politics in the work environment, politics in the home, politics in one's social life. If you are around people, you are being influenced by politics and are in many ways being political.

"Okay, so I'm political. But is there any reason to be a political activist in the usual sense of influencing the "laws of the community" or the "laws of the land?"

That is an impossible question for one person to answer for another. There are millions of factors, past, present and future ... here, there, and everywhere ... most factors not even in conscious awareness, which a person's inner being takes into account in sparking interest in any activity.

Certainly "politics as usual" is probably distasteful for most people because "politics as usual" is the mechanism of those who want to create laws which force others to do things they wouldn't have freely chosen to do, or pay for things they wouldn't have freely chosen to pay for. Most people do not want to use laws to force others, and might shy away from what seems distasteful activity.

Some might feel an interest in politics which they cannot explain. Maybe there is an important life lesson for them which they are not currently aware of, but which will come in the future as a result of political activity. Or maybe there is a soul mate they are destined to meet in the future at a political function. Our future good is often a present unknown.

Modern day libertarian-conservatives in politics, like Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, know well why they are involved in politics. Self-defense. And the defense of their loved ones. Rand's father Ron Paul proved that as the bad guys manipulate, maneuver, lie, cheat, and steal to force their programs on everyone, there is benefit in having a good guy in Congress, and on television interview programs, and in election debates, saying "No!"

If no one ever hears a "No!" from someone in a political position the bad guys win easily.

If everyone believes the flawed logic that it is impossible to fight "politics as usual" by becoming political, the bad guys win by default.

The Course in Political Miracles would never have been given to mankind if there were no value in good guys being active in politics. The Course, in fact, helps good guys to become miraculous at politics ... and everyone benefits.

In answer to the question of this article's title, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are already making a difference. And we can be grateful for and salute anyone who joins them.

Political Success Assured



This is a course for those who want to be successful politically.  It does not concern itself merely with mundane political data and intricacies, the kind you could learn in a political science class.  It concerns itself with preparing you to be a winner in a political world usually characterized by insanity.

In a perfect world you would give no thought to politics because there would be no politics. This course prepares you for success in an imperfect world that could bring about your destruction, or the destruction of your values, if you don't take action.

Politics is not fun ... unless you make it fun by choosing a fun-creating attitude and approach.  This course teaches you how to have fun as a freedom zealot in the political realm. This course, taken seriously, prepares you to be a highly successful candidate or activist if you feel so inclined.

The course also helps you to see more clearly and set goals which further your values and ideals.

For example, in a political world where leaders who strongly influence your life and the lives of your loved ones are chosen by election, your goal has to be to win elections.  You may not win every election, but to have a goal other than winning elections is to say, "I'm willing to let those be elected who could destroy my values."  In other words, any goal other than winning elections is self-defeating.

Seeing more clearly also helps you to make choices which most truly serve your ideals and values.

For example, in an imperfect world, sometimes only two candidates stand a chance of winning a given election.  Maybe a third candidate seems much more to reflect your values, but has no chance to win.  To support the candidate who has no chance to win is equivalent to saying, "I don't care which of the others win, even if it's the most evil one who will be more thorough in destroying my values."   Such a strategy is called "self-destruction."

Basically, avoiding sabotaging your own values in an imperfect world where only two candidates have a realistic chance to win employs what business people refer to as "cost-benefit analysis."  What is the cost to you if the most dangerous one wins, the one who would systematically and seriously destroy your values?  What is the benefit of the lesser dangerous one winning?  Maybe the only benefit you can think of is the value of forestalling the worst scenario, giving the liberty movement more time and some "breathing room" to work and win other elections.  Cost-benefit analysis tells you your goal has to be supporting the one you perceive to be "the lesser of two evils," because it's actually the greatest realistic good.

This course is really about creating a more perfect world, but in full recognition that the world as we find it is not perfect and it is necessary to prepare ourselves and act accordingly.

Answer to Anarchists



"I am serving the highest in the universe."


To this point in these lessons I have been opening myself up spiritually and developing certain mind-sets and habits which benefit me in the political realm. I have not yet fully considered whether by focusing on politics to such a degree I am "selling my soul to the devil".

In other words, what if in a manner of speaking my real kingdom is not politics and by focusing on politics I am distracting my attention from my real kingdom?

Probably I would not have progressed this far in these lessons if politics was a distraction to me, because the first few lessons would have "weeded me out" of politics and pointed me toward some endeavor my heart and mind could be fully into. Nonetheless, it benefits me to ask and have a clear answer to the question: would one's deepest spirit, one's innermost being, guide one to be involved in politics?

Perhaps the best way to answer this question is to play a game of pretend, pretending that we are not alone in the universe and in fact there are beings infinitely more intelligent than earthlings.

Being infinitely more intelligent than earthlings, these beings would have advanced far beyond ego-vested interests such as conquering others or ruling others. They would in fact be interested in raising the level of consciousness of every being on all planets and eliminating pain, fear and guilt in all the universe.

To the extent that such advanced beings could influence earthlings, they would influence earthlings to love rather than fear, be at peace rather than war, and establish political systems based on universal principles rather than the ego-vested interests of some group or collection of groups.

In other words, if politicians and political activists of the past have served "the devil" so to speak, or the worst in mankind, this does not mean that politicians or activists of the future cannot serve the best in the universe.

This week I remind myself that I am active in politics for one reason only: to serve the light.

Each day I use my awakening meditation to see myself serving the highest in the universe. I visualize the light of a brighter consciousness than my own and I say aloud to myself several times over:

"I am serving the highest in the universe."

As I go through my day, I repeat to myself many times over variations of this week's idea such as:

"I am in politics to serve the highest purposes."

"I live and work to serve only the light."

"I am serving higher principles than old-style politics."


As I am about to retire for the day, I feel a sense of satisfaction that I am not working for the narrow interests of one group or another, but rather for the highest principles in the universe. I say a few times to myself:

"I'm about as happy as I can be! I'm serving EVERYONE by serving only the light!"
