During the presidential election, American voters did not rally around Ron Paul. Instead, establishment stooge John McCain won the Republican nomination. But the events of the past 12 months have made thing one thing abundantly clear: It looks like Ron Paul was right after all.
America’s financial system is totally collapsing, dozens of banks and insurance companies have failed this year, General Motors is on the verge of bankruptcy, the U.S. government is running up a record budget deficit, the borders are wide open, hatred for the United States is at an all-time high around the world and the individual liberties of ordinary Americans have been eroded as never before.
Ron Paul warned America about all of these things, but Americans chose not to listen.
Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why Ron Paul was right…
1) Ron Paul said that if we continued to run our economy on runaway government spending, endless amounts of debt and the insanity of letting the Federal Reserve control our currency then eventually the United States economy would crash.
Did that not happen?
But neither party is seeking to end this orgy of debt. Instead both parties pushed the “Wall Street bailout” and both parties seem determined to spend even more money.
Unfortunately, Ron Paul is one of the only members of Congress that is willing tell the truth.
Check out this very short 3 minute video where he tells it like it is:
The reality is that the vast majority of U.S Senators and congressmen refuse to confront the Federal Reserve.
Ron Paul is one of the only members of Congress that will openly confront Fed officials.
In the video posted below, Congressman Ron Paul openly confronts Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke about globalist plans to replace the dollar with a new global reserve currency:
2) Ron Paul said that the United States cannot police the world. If we bomb countries into oblivion, invade them and torture everyone in sight then people around the world are going to hate America.
Did that not happen?
But neither party is seeking to end the wars. Instead Obama is promising to keep troops in Iraq for at least 18 more months, and he is promising to send tens of thousands more troops to Afghanistan and he has talked about how we may need to send troops into Pakistan and Sudan.
3) Ron Paul said that if we passed the “Patriot Act” and these other fascist police state pieces of legislation that we would lose our individual liberties.
Did that not happen?
But neither party is taking any action to repeal the Patriot Act. In fact, Obama seems quite content with continuing the police state policies of the Bush administration.
“The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is.”
-Ronald Reagan (1975)
When will people start listening to Ron Paul?
Ron Paul recently appeared on FOX News with Neil Cavuto to discuss the latest bailout package.
The following are a few key quotes from that interview:
“When companies get too big and make mistakes they should fail.”
“We’re propping up all the bad mistakes.”
“Governments can’t make the correct decisions. They aren’t smart enough.”
“This whole idea that Washington are genuises… that they can do central economic planning. In this country we don’t call it socialism we call it interventionism and a planned economy.”
Below is the video of that interview:
But is anyone listening?
Obama and his advisers seem determined to take us even further down the road of big government, big spending, bailouts and socialism.
So is there any hope for the future?
What we could really use is a reformed Republican Party led by Ron Paul that would embrace a platform of smaller government, less taxation, abolishing the Federal Reserve, returning our individual freedoms and liberties and protecting our nation’s borders and sovereignty.
Do things have to get even worse before America will listen to Ron Paul?
Posted below is an excerpt from a recent edition of Congressman Ron Paul’s “weekly straight talk”:
“We will face more tough economic problems during this new administration. In fact, the worst is yet to come. A vast amount of problematic mortgages have not begun to reset their variable interest rates and go into default. We already have unprecedented deficits, spending is out of control, and more big industries are coming to government with their hands out. My hope is that this administration will handle this economic crisis better than the interventionists and big government spenders of the 1930’s, the bureaucrats that prolonged the Depression. I hope that new government programs and spiderwebs of red tape do not pop up to interfere with American productivity, and that we can quickly get our financial footing again. We have to understand that an economic correction needs to take place and the only way out of the coming recession is to go through it. Efforts to avoid it can only prolong it. I hope we can somehow find our way back to sound money and reject corporate cronyism”.
If the American people will just wake up then perhaps the movement that Ron Paul has begun can give us hope for the future:
