Ron Paul Was Right - 2002 Predictions (AMAZING NEW VID)

In a 5 minute 2002 speech, Ron Paul tells the speaker exactly what is going to happen (and has happened) by the end of 2012.

"I have no timetable for these predictions, but just in case, keep them around and look at them in 5-10 years. Let's hope and pray that I'm wrong on all accounts. If so, I will be very pleased. "

Bad news: correct on all accounts.

That Dr. Paul's House Floor speech on April 24, 2002 will go down in history as one of the greatest speeches he's ever made.

Sadly, as you reiterated, it all came true. Kinda frightening.

But, as all sages of yore who maintain a long view of history, the way I take his speech to be is that Dr. Paul's whole point is that if one truly studies history, the events he predicted are NOT unpredictable, as there's always a few specific constants that all tyrannical govt & its commissars have in common, throughout history: hubris, murderous bloodlust, capital controls after THEY caused an economic collapse via debasement of currency, and after an empire runs out of '3rd world undesirables' to subjugate, they 'Cross the Rubicon' and turn their corporatist Military away from foreigners whom they beta-tested on, back to the original Golden Goose that laid the eggs: their own native population/citizenry. And so another 'great' empire bites the dust, upon ashes of which, humans still don't learn from their history and mistakes, and inevitably start the cycle all over again.

The biggest laugh track for our Progeny would be the fact that their idiotic ancestors honestly deluded that a supposed 'free' society and a Constitution in which allowed its central govt to tax its citizenry actually wouldn't lead to a ginormous empire: empires can only exist so long as an economic base is there to support it, and its citizenry are too materialistic, fat, well fed, morally degenerate, and too lazy to care while the tyranny slowly creeps back up, again. A cycle and part of human nature that's as old as our own written history.

Ironically, only a free market system CAN sustain an empire, as long as there's statist corporatist taxation scheme to drain the wealth of the citizenry at a regular interval, as it produces the most amount of wealth.

Frankly, WHEN the empire collapses, I hope to god we have enough critical mass of awakened citizenry enough to want to wean off ANY taxation, other than very limited, Constitutionally explicit user fees for very limited Constitutional govt roles/spending and a referendum on annual defense spending.

My hope is to have politicians NEVER utter the word "revenue" when referring to taxes or govt budget, ever again. Realistically? Hopeless, unless the entire culture's notion of 'what the role of govt should be' changes across the board, once and for all. Short of a one-button instantaneous cerebellum reset switch for ALL 310mililon citizenry? Think not. lol

NO GOVT in a supposed free society should ever refer to Treasury funds that will pay for the budget as "Revenue," as if it's supposed to be part of a cashflow for a business (yes, technically and specifically as it stands in terms of legal structure, all govts ARE businesses, no if's end's or but's. And for the sake of conversation, setting aside the FACT of 14th Amend. US Corp. 'legal' entity UCC hijack...) Key being, ideally, govts. SHOULDN'T function like a business. Though in a truly ideal world, no govt should 'need' to exist, and EVERYTHING should be voluntary, period. But, in all practical sense, we have a majority of population that still dicker over the plain language of the Constitution, and what it's SUPPOSE to mean. So if we can't even restore ourselves to a Constitutional Republic in the next 4~8yrs, what are the chances of a truly voluntaryist society, other than pockets of communes??

Long road ahead, indeed...

Predictions in due Time...

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

The oracle of Lake Jackson

These are just some of the predictions Ron Paul made that came true.

He has done it time and time again.

Tyranny is afoot, people.

When is everyone going to wake up?

To any long-time conservatives reading: We can't keep fighting these pointless wars and expect there not to be any backlash.
If the fighting was happening here, and we had dead family members because of bombs being dropped, and armies invading, and famine because of the disruption of the food supply chain, then we would want to take up arms against it too.
Don't you see you are being lied to?
Osama Bin Laden is dead and we are still over there.
You actually have a better chance of dying from 2 consecutive strikes of lightning than you do from a terrorist attack, and that is NOT thanks to the TSA or the government at large.
We are there for the self-interests of corrupt Lawmen, lobbyists, and Politicians (google "the road to persia" and "Wesley Clark" together for just a hint of evidence of that very fact... also try "leviathan field" - ITM)

To any Liberals reading this, we are not as different as you think - we also want an end to all of the war, suffering and the poverty.
We just have a different approach.
Wouldn't you feel more generous if your money was worth much more than now - virtually overnight - if only we could return it to it's original gold standard?
Even bums peddling for dollars on the street would be living well if it were like that.
Wall Street has been cornered by the Federal Reserve and the rich men who collude with it, not ALL rich men.
Remember the American dream?
That was intended for everyone, not just an elite few.

We can change this. We can put a stopper on the corruption. We can hold these criminals accountable for their treason. We can have a unified voice louder than the biggest bombs.

It is easier than you think.

All we need are committed numbers.

Please share this video submitted by it's originator with this message - attend the next GOP mass precinct meeting or convention in your area if you haven't already done so.

Brilliant words, my friend

Thank you for the inspiration.

I plan to use your words with both my left and right friends who are on the fence on this one.

What you have written here is DAMN POWERFUL.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

That was awesome

I have seen the video in other forms but that was great.

If the creator could do one about his prediction on the housing collapse in the same manner it would be great.

Many of Ron Paul's speeches could be matched with the future

Unlike the rest of Congress, he knows what he's talking about and can predict what is going to happen because he understands the basics of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness so well.



They tried to bury us, they didn't know we were seeds. -mexican proverb

Ron Paul WAS right; Ron Paul IS right!

Instead, media focuses on stuff even older that he never said, and a random Huntsman video he didn't have anything to do with.


Another bump up for the midday crowd :)

I pray that people will always remember the truth has been gasping for air just under the surface and it has always been there wanting to breathe freely.

I wish the campaign would use this.

Humility is the cornerstone of a Warriors Strength.

I Always Thought This Speech Should Be a Campaign AD

You did a great job. I hope they use it in New Hampshire and South Carolina. In fact I dared a talk radio person who is critical of Ron Paul to read it over the air and he declined.







Great Job

Great job on putting this video together. Shared it with my FB friends. Hopefully some of them will comment.

I've shared this on all of my

I've shared this on all of my fb friend's pages already - plan on adding it to a dvd with a bunch of other amazing videos to convert the uninformed ;)

All I can say is "WOW!"

I was waiting for someone to make this video. It is beautifully done. HUGE shoutout to whomever put this together. I'm going to send this to every single person I know. Wow!



“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

Excellent job.

Will share.

I wish this could sit at top of Daily Paul the whole election

So every passerby could see it.


in my eyes... 8(


Brought me to tears seriously :) Great Vid.

you know who might actually play this?

joe scarborough.

No He Won't

He trashed Ron Paul on his show today (1/6/12) when he interviewed Murphy. They had a big laugh when Murphy said, "The Paul supporters are waiting for the Flying Saucer to land in New Hampshire."


Who could argue that this man is wrong?

I pity the fool that tries to debate uncle Ron!

In Liberty

Good Video

I'll add it to my list to show the believers and hopefully form them into thinkers.

"Freedom is Popular"

This is a very powerful video

I'm surprised ronpaulflix hasn't picked up on it yet. I know we always get carried away and say "this video should go viral" about a lot of videos, but this video really does need to go viral. It should be made into an ad somehow by superpac or somebody. please spread this.

"I never submitted the whole system of my opinions to the creed of any party of men whatever in religion, in philosophy, in politics, or in anything else where I was capable of thinking for myself." - Thomas Jefferson

Proof Ron Paul knows what he's talking about.

Like nobody else, certainly no other mere politician.

As such, he is actually more qualified to be President than probably anyone ever in America that has ever run for the office.

Not because he walks on water, or has accomplished more than others before him, but simply because he's so principled and knowledgeable. He knows the Constitution, economics, foreign policy, liberty, and the important foundations of society as a whole better than anyone else in the public spotlight and he's been consistently defending the foundations of our country his entire career as a representative.

It's amazing the media can convince so many to not listen.

Not to mention he has this

Not to mention he has this one quality that seems to be so severely lacking in our country (especially by those who run it):


I'm normally not a really religious person, but this video breaks my heart - there is so much greed and hatred in this world. Please God have mercy on the troubled souls of mankind, we're all gonna need it...
