In the 1960’s, Bill Clinton’s mentor, Carroll Quigley, professor of History at Georgetown, authored a book entitled “Tragedy and Hope.” He had been given the private documents and writings of the power elite and commissioned to write a book for them, which was not intended for public consumption, as it revealed their plans that the populace at large should not be awakened to. The elite can’t afford the sheeple to become the “informed citizenry” that Thomas Jefferson said was essential to maintaining a free society.
The Elite care not what “candidate” is selected and put in office when that candidate is under their control, be they Democrat or Republican, it makes little difference. The astute observer of politics over time begins to recognize that there may be a few slight trimmings for show in change, nothing of any major effect is ever changed despite the election of the other party into office. When we have the establishment put forth candidates backed by their nefarious Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) it matters not to them who it is that is their spokesperson, puppet, and stooge in the White House, be they CFR Team A or CFR Team B, as columnist Gary North puts it.
Author G. Edward Griffin refers to the con game played out as the “Quigley Formula” described here:
“The National parties and their presidential candidates, with the Eastern Establishment assiduously fostering the process behind the scenes, moved closer together and nearly met in the center with almost identical candidates and platforms, although the process was concealed as much as possible, by the revival of obsolescent or meaningless war cries and slogans (often going back to the Civil War). … The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy. … Either party in office becomes in time corrupt, tired, unenterprising, and vigorless. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.” [Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time (New York: Macmillan, 1966), pp. 1247–1248.]
“It is increasingly clear that, in the twentieth century, the expert will replace … the democratic voter in control of the political system. Hopefully, the elements of choice and freedom may survive for the ordinary individual in that he may be free to make a choice between two opposing political groups (even if these groups have little policy choice within the parameters of policy established by the experts) and he may have the choice to switch his economic support from one large unit to another. But, in general, his freedom and choice will be controlled within very narrow alternatives by the fact that he will be numbered from birth and followed, as a number, through his educational training, his required military or other public service, his tax contributions, his health and medical requirements, and his final retirement and death benefits.” (Tragedy and Hope: pp 866).
As one contemplates the reality of really “no choice,” given in election cycles, one begins to understand more fully and comprehend the warning by the Book of Mormon prophet Moroni when he puts forth the Command of God to us in our day that we must “awake to a sense of your awful situation” for our having tolerated and permitted this vast secret combination to be built up above us which seeks to “overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries” which of course is the CFR agenda.
As it is very obvious to the honest and astude observer, Romney is hardly different than Obama, and this is by design. The “Quigley Formula” con game is played out by the elite on a majority of the citizenry who manifest ignorance, despite their flag waving patriotism. They are effective dupes who haven’t quite figure out what LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley saw clearly, as quoted from his little book, “Standing for Something” (with foreword by CBS Newsman, Mike Wallace):
“I have lived long enough now to know that many political campaigns, for example, are the same. I have heard again and again the sweet talk that leads to victory but never seems to be realized thereafter. We need moral men and women, people who stand on principle, to be involved in the political process. Otherwise, we abdicate power to those whose designs are almost entirely selfish.” ~ Gordon B. Hinckley (Standing for Something, pp. 170–171.)(emphasis added.)
Gordon B. Hinckley had been counselor to LDS Church President, Ezra Taft Benson, who likewise lamented the blindness of well meaning people, seemingly unable to recognize the pattern. These people, despite being well meaning, are ineffective and worthless in the protection of their liberties and the maintenance of the Republic:
“If America is destroyed, it may be by Americans who salute the flag, sing the national anthem, march in patriotic parades, cheer Fourth of July speakers — normally good Americans who fail to comprehend what is required to keep our country strong and free — Americans who have been lulled away into a false security.” (April 1968, General Conference Report)
Is Mitt Romney a good man? Probably he is in the general sense. Surely he is not an evil man. We can commend him for being a good husband and father, and surely many other things. We who support Ron Paul don’t attack Mitt Romney, nor Obama for that matter, personally. But the ideas these men put forth—the un-American destructive policies that further put the strings of tyranny upon the people of this nation—we will decry. These would be, naming just a few, the vast militarism (not defense) manifest in the “darker side” of empire abroad, condemned and warned of by the US Founders, Statesemen (including the LDS Church’s First Presidency durring the time of WWII,) and patriots. We decry the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and this horrendous power to “assassinate” “on the presidents say so alone” US citizens merely suspected as terrorists, having had not due process convicting them of so being by a jury of their peers.
We too decry Romneycare/Obamacare, which are vicious and evil, un-American, and are so far outside The Proper Role of Government as to make one shake their head in disbelief at the far flung and far afield point we’ve reached in apostatizing from the US Constitution and the writings and principles espoused by the Founders.
We commend the counsel of Joseph Smith to throw our votes away upon worthiness, and not the “lesser of two evils” nonsense CFR game played upon the people constantly. Said Joseph before his martyrdom:
“…we shall have the satisfaction of knowing that we have acted conscientiously, and have used our best judgment. And if we have to throw away our votes, we had better do so upon a worthy rather than an unworthy individual who might make use of the weapon we put in his hand to destroy us.” (Times and Seasons, Nauvoo, IV, 441. Cited also in Roberts, Comprehensive History, II, 208–209.)
May Ron Paul, the only non-CFR man with as great of a grass roots following as has been had in decades, have some divine miracles performed for the cause that he represents. The GOP may combine, the media may spin, columny may defame, but the message of liberty will never be crushed, for God is a lover and promoter of human liberty and freedom, and ultimately, his purposes will override that of the CFR agenda of Lucifarian control and elimination of choice (even in terms of elections between CFR Team A or B). Freedom is God’s fight, as Ezra Taft Benson stated, and if one stands for freedom, even if they stand alone, they will still stand with God.
