The lip of truth shall be established forever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment...Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are His delight. Prov 12:19,22

Does anyone have a transcript of this beautiful speech?

Unfortunately the audio is poor.

Too bad because it's one of dr. Paul's best ever.

So if anyone knows how I could get a written copy I would greatly appreciate it.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

1/3 of Trillions of Dollars Fed Created Went to Foreign Banks

"We found out one third of those trillions of dollars they created went to foreign banks."

- Dr. Ron Paul, 3/7/2011, 10m25s

"We have placed our faith...

in a false God and that God is government."
Another great quote from the good doctor.

“The Internet is the first thing that humanity has built that humanity doesn't understand, the largest experiment in anarchy that we have ever had." - Eric Schmidt


The conservatives calling themselves 'neo', must be shaking in their boots right now. Dr. Paul has destroyed their alliance with Christians in one fell swoop with this speech.


In this speech, it appears Ron Paul is addressing a religious audience. I've never heard him tie in the bible as it relates to politics before, but I appreciate it. Moral grounding is an imperative here, as without it we get 'moral hazard'.

I found this speech compelling, especially after I saw a speech last weekend by Dan Gotcher, www.authorityresearch.com, called 'Deceit and the Dialectic', which outlined the collectivist dogma of brainwashing our children by ignoring law and facts. In today's world, 1+1=3; kids now form committees and come up with conforming 'group' answers. The rule of law (black or white, no in between) is weakened. The goal: kill the patriarchal family structure, and replace it with government.

here is just another awesome speech...

by Dr. Paul that the lame street media will ignore

i very much loathe the lame street media!

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

That was terrific. " Thou

That was terrific. " Thou shalt not counterfeit should be one of God's commandments" LOL, We sure got our moneys worth sending him to Iowa!


I love watching him show his love for the word of God. We need to let him know its ok with us that he shares the source of his moral compass. I notice he actually has to work hard to come right out with it because he hates the idea of making non believers feel put-off. He is such a good example for Biblical values. He makes me proud to be a believer. He is one man I would trust to never push his belief on another man with force. This man doesn't see in color he sees the light. He loves every liberty lover equally. The guy never stops amazing me.

A man of faith, hope and love for God and his people.

Our prophet, statesman and a teacher. . .

The more I think about this speech, the more I think it's his...

...best ever.

And I've heard lots of great Ron Paul speeches.
It's a shame the audio isn't better.
Does anyone know how to get a transcript of the speech?
Here is a great passage I copied down...

"When it comes to our religious faith, I think most of us agree that it’s a very personal matter.

Our salvation is not going to be delivered to us by our parents. It’s not going to be delivered to us by a collective group. Just joining a church, you don’t gain salvation. This is very personal.

If that most important thing called salvation is purely personal, then what about all the other things we do? What about personal choices elsewhere?

If we can have free will and choices there, what about the free will and choice about what we read, and what we eat, and all the other habits that we have?

I’m not for passing a lot of laws like that because I don’t think they work. I think it’s much better for us to have the freedom we desire, and put the responsibility on us."
-Ron Paul Iowa 2011

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

I've always wondered

if Ron paul has ever led anyone to change thier thinking on the bible. I wonder if he has led any believers to dig deeper in the bible. I wonder if he has led any non-believers to re-think the truth of the bible. I wonder if any have totally changed thier mind after watching Ron Paul.

He is a great example.

Wonder no more!

In fact I'll now be reading Samuel.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Samuel's message on Kings

Ron Paul is indeed a wonderful Soul and has a great understanding of the problems inherent in our system of money supply. I look forward to the day when another great man steps forward with the understanding of the old testament philosophy of Jubilee. Land has been called the mother of all monopolies but it is really the Mother of Free Will. Sharing the Land equitably is God's form of socialism and the very foundation of True Free Will. All the other forms of welfare are fraudulent attempts to fill that role that only the Equal Right to Life can accomplish. We are getting there folks -)


This is what I have been waiting for!!


Wow. He is a truly great man. Free Will is the greatest gift God gave to us being in His image. Let us protect and cherish it!
Thanks Ron for putting it out there! This speech shows his consistency of belief on all levels of his personhood. I love Ron Paul.
God bless Him and his family!


As a Latter Day Saint...

... I loved this speech.
The evils of the welfare/warfare state should be even more obvious to any Mormon. In addition to Samuel's warning against government by kings, we have the story of the war in heaven and Satan's plan:

"...and he [Lucifer] came before me, saying—Behold, here am I, send me, I will be thy son, and I will redeem all mankind, that one soul shall not be lost, and surely I will do it; wherefore give me thine honor."

"Wherefore, because that Satan rebelled against me, and sought to destroy the agency [autonomy] of man, which I, the Lord God, had given him, and also, that I should give unto him mine own power; by the power of mine Only Begotten, I caused that he should be cast down;..."
Moses 4; 1&3

(emphasis mine)

In other words, our Heavenly Father ordained individual liberty (the freedom to choose, AKA "agency"), as a fundamental attribute of mankind. We were literally his sons and daughters, and the idea of turning us into saintly robots without the ability to choose was, to Him, an abomination.

But what else would you call the forced redistribution of wealth "for the greater good"?

Next to our mortal bodies, our freedom to choose good OR EVIL, was his most precious gift to us.

The welfare state truly IS the product of Satan's plan for mankind made manifest.

The Virtual Conspiracy

Not affilliated with any religion.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Even the best plans by the socialists have (UN)intended consequences.
Give them a fishing rod NOT seemingly endless supplies of fish.(Which are now washing up on the shores by the millions BTW)
Better yet, teach them to build a fishing rod.

Welfare is the worst of evils.... next to warfare.
Collectivism kills.... the human spirit.

In other words,

voluntary freewill act of love to fellow human's health and wellbeing is the best of Goodness :-)

Yes... Voluntary.

But as Dr. Paul says in his speech, a stingy person still has the RIGHT to withhold his charity.
It is not only impossible to make someone do good, the very attempt is evil.
But many people just can't seem to grasp that concept.

The Virtual Conspiracy

Also a latter-day saint

Great speech.

the candidate who will win will be

the one who can make their economic message a moral one.

That seems to be just what Dr. Paul did in this speech.


Government as an Idol

I've taught this for years, and glad Dr. Paul points this out.

God has said, "thou shalt have no other gods before me...", "trust not in the arm of the flesh, but put thy trust in me", etc.

And yet tens of millions of Christian Americans of all faiths, from Mormons to Baptists to Catholics, look to the government for the answer to their problems.

God has promised to bless us with all the we want and need, "Take no thought for the morrow", but our faith is weak.

Dr. Paul points out that trusting in a government (a king, a democracy, whatever) is idol worship, which is one of the greatest sins that man can commit.

And thus we are "ripening for destruction."

I know his audience was different from most crowds, and he had "license" to speak on this topic, but he hit the nail on the head, this is a spiritual problem. That's the root of it, even more than the Fed is the root.

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

God said all that?

My favorite Ron Paul speech!

This was a great speech! It speaks so simply to the heart. I loved it!


Best i've heard from Ron in a while

Whenever i see him on talk shoes, Im sorta only interested in the reaction of the talking head. I've heard Ron Paul say stuff like, "I believe in the advice of the founders who advocated a strictly non-interventionist foreign policy..." no tellin how many times.
This speech is the real deal; Ron speaking candidly in a way which you rarely hear from him. for a minute it felt it used to when I was in my old apartment from 2007, studying Ron Paul videos. Refreshing.

This is what is needed!

Dr. Paul sharing more about his faith while explaining the role of liberty.

I have sooo many christian relatives that are sucked into self-serving charlatan theo-politicians like the Huckster, while the good doctor is cast aside because they know nothing about his personal faith since he is very private about it.
Dr. Paul lives his faith while the others merely give lip service to it.

People also need to see how the founder's envisioned this country. They need to have the pieces laid out for them. The Google sponsored interview in the '08 campaign is also a good example of that.

I loved this speech, just wish the audio was better.

That really was, quite a

That really was, quite a speech..
