Ron Paul’s Biggest Supporter Is A Bilderberger, International Financier
World’s collide.The gay libertarian tech investor Peter Thiel, enthusiast of post-national ocean states, backed the SuperPAC.
The largest donor to a SuperPAC supporting Ron Paul is Peter Thiel, the sort of ultra-wealthy, super-national figure Paul and his supporters love to hate.
Thiel — who gave $900,000 to the pro-Paul group Endorse Liberty — made his fortune as the co-founder of PayPal; he was also an early investor in Facebook, and is now a major player in the world of high-tech venture capital. He’s also a devoted libertarian and devoted Republican: He hosted a fundraiser for the confrontational gay conservative group GOProud at his grand apartment off Union Square in 2010.
Thiel is also a member of the steering committee of the Bilderberg Group, the elite, invitation-only conference that’s the frequent subject of conspiracy theories.
“They probably get together and talk about how they’re going to control the banking systems of the world and natural resources,” Paul said in 2008.
Thiel shares, though, Paul’s anti-government, and anti-Establishment, impulses. He has funded a prize to encourage talented students to drop out of college, and is a major supporter of the cause of “Seasteading,” creating independent, water-borne cities free of national law.

A previous item by Cliff Kincaid in Gulag Bound refers to this man: “Republicans Raise Money for Gay Agenda.” Further information about Thiel may be found online.
It should also be underscored that Ron Paul’s libertarian political philosophy is revisionist philosophy, not the authentic political philosophy of America’s founders and our Constitution’s framers. Libertarianism makes a mistake similar to that of progressivism, in positing its maxims, vision, and goals as if our Constitution may be removed from the foundational principles of the Declaration of Independence., our national charter.
Also, Rep. Paul’s Austrian School economics are not only inauthentic to America’s foundational economic philosophy (based in large part upon Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations and in turn, the principles of the Bible) it is an inherently globalist economic philosophy which eschews national guardianship of the economic health and freedom of sovereign nations. As such, it is subject to the kind of Mutually Assured Economic Destruction that we currently face, stemming from the world’s crises of European dominated government insolvency and banking hubris.
And gold standard? We had better find out where the gold really is, and how much, before we ever move to a gold standard. Further, any standard of a nation’s currency must be that nation’s standard, not global. I humbly suggest we think of what is meant by calling money “Sovereign” and then ponder what happens with global currency and concomitant global governance in the prophecy of the book of the Revelation to John.
Nations are accountable to God, each for its own nation’s governance. Governance of a nation’s sovereign currency is a key element of this, as is governance over its preservation of that nation’s Right to Life and its acknowledgment of the essential meaning of marriage, any sane and functional culture’s fundamental societal relationship.
Personally, would I vote for Ron Paul over Barack Obama? Easily. Of the four GOP candidates, I would refuse to vote for the bankster-backed, Agenda-21 implementing Hollow Man, Mitt Romney, if he were nominated. I suggest looking to and questioning Newt Gingrich, who still has a chance to win the GOP nomination and who is apparently shifting from previous positions to committing to stand for the Sovereignty of the United States of America. Rick Santorum’s record is not unalarming and that should be presented in Gulag Bound by Kelleigh Nelson, soon.
