RON PAUL may have promised to finally do something about Xenu, since other politicians won't.
 
2012-08-26 12:09:03 PM  
"The bottom line is that the guys who are Ron Paul supporters are free-thinkers," said Doerges. "They're more literate. They're able to actually look at data, and make decisions about it. That's sort of the keynote of Scientology."

Sir you have hit the nail on the head.

XENU PAUL
 
2012-08-26 01:07:04 PM  
Xenu was about to be deposed from power, so he devised a plot to eliminate the excess population from his dominions. With the assistance of psychiatrists, he gathered billions[4][5] of his citizens under the pretense of income tax inspections, then paralyzed them and froze them in a mixture of alcohol and glycol to capture their souls. The kidnapped populace was loaded into spacecraft for transport to the site of extermination, the planet of Teegeeack (Earth).[5] The appearance of these spacecraft would later be subconsciously expressed in the design of the Douglas DC-8, the only difference being that "the DC8 had fans, propellers on it and the space plane didn't".[21] When they had reached Teegeeack, the paralyzed citizens were unloaded around the bases of volcanoes across the planet.[5][8] Hydrogen bombs were then lowered into the volcanoes and detonated simultaneously,[8] killing all but a few aliens.

Teegeeack? Like...Tea Party? Maybe Ron Paul has been Xenu all along!

Confabulat: "The bottom line is that the guys who are Ron Paul supporters are free-thinkers fall for bullshiat easily," said Doerges. "They're more literate. They're able to actually look at data hold beliefs with no basis in reality, and make decisions about it hold on to those beliefs even more stubbornly as they are disproven. That's sort of the keynote of the kind of sucker who gets roped into Scientology."

Sir you have hit the nail on the head.

In our narrow-minded worldview, perhaps. L. Ron Hubbard was able to see beyond consensus reality.

Many of those who are disillusioned by government and politics, confused, alienated, become Ron Paul supporters. Those who are in this state of mind are the preferred prey of cults, religion, and certain commercial marketing strategies. Of course Scientology is there, being all three.

"If you reward non-production, you're going to get non-production. Scientologists realize that. They tend to be independent thinkers."

Except for the part where your every action is monitored and controlled by superiors, you're expected to follow the "teachings" of L. Ron Hubbard down to the last letter, and you're punished with slave labor if you dare to show an independent thought of question the Scientology stance on anything. Other than that, you can think as independently as you like.
 
2012-08-26 02:22:13 PM  
Scientology is just a cult that bothered to buy a back story. People like that are extremely dangerous. Stay away from Scientology, and speed it's fall.

I would rather see America (or the world, for that matter) become uniformly Mormon (yes, really) than Scientologist. Hell, I think even Islam is less undesirable, and I do not appreciate the absolute self justification of Islam. But a cult is worse. And a rich, legally active cult with lots of ambition is more than a blight, it is a pox. It brings great sorrow.

"When goodness grows weak, when evil increases, I make myself a body. In every age I come back to deliver the holy, to destroy the sin of the sinner, to establish righteousness. He who knows the nature of my task and my holy birth is not reborn when he leaves this body: he comes to me. Flying from fear, from lust and anger, he hides in me his refuge, his safety: burnt clean in the blaze of my being, in me many find home." - Bhagavad Gita

"All aggregates are impermanent." - Buddha

If there were ever two cults that were made for one another they are the Scientologists and the Ayn Rand followers. Both cults provide a framework and justification for sociopathic behavior in the form of poorly written works of fiction.
