Ron Paul was the ONLY politician favored on Scientologist businessmen "career" pages and on social media, when I was researching them for how they fit into the Scientology Celebrity Spiderweb. I kept seeing Ron Paul, over and over, but only on Scientologist men sites, not Scientologist women sites. Older men were more likely active, but there were 30-something Scientologist men, too.
Recent news says Ron Paul activists are taking power over several State Republican Parties, and even changing their rules in favor of nominating candidates at State Conventions, where Ron Paul activists can dominate, compared to having a primary (see, Ron Paul gets adoring followers but not many votes). If Scientologists, who already have strong in-group loyalty and KNOW how to fund-raise, get entrenched in State Republican leadership positions, this will can get them nominated for State Cabinet posts, or at least access to those in State government. Likely targets:
State education - to favor Applied Scholastics
State prisons - to favor Criminon
State-subsidized drug treatment - to favor Narconon
State Attorneys General - to go easy on fraudulent religions, or workplaces forcing CoS courses
State Departments of Labor - to go easy on wage theft and employee abuse
Ron Paul's definition of freedom definitely is boss-oriented - the freedom to impose and exploit. Scientology/WISE's flog-your-people-with-stats-and-impose-your-religion-on-them dogma will fit right into a State run by Ron Paul people.
The one flaw is that the Scientology businessmen have to say they're anti-abortion in order to fit in, because Ron Paul wants a government small enough to fit into women's vaginas. But these businessmen have donated to CoS for years, and CoS's top leadership had for years the (secret) forced-abortion rule for Sea Org workers. Unwilling in the past to just let the women quit, CoS hounded them until they broke down and had the abortion. Since the Headley lawsuit and the glaring publicity about forced abortions, CoS is more likely to push the preggy ladies OUT, so if it comes up, here's the likely conversation:
"So you're a Scientologist; didn't the Sea Org in the past have forced abortions?"
"Scientology does not have forced abortions. I am personally totally anti-abortion. Furthermore I think blah blah (change the subject)." (Notice they don't use the past tense or specify Sea Org).
Some people predict some Ron Paul power-grabbing, rule-changing, and a show of enthusiasm at the Republican convention, to be held in Tampa August 27-August 30, 2012* Lots of Scientology businessmen have a home in the Clearwater area, one bridge away from Tampa. Keep an eye out for them.
