Just a reminder of what this movement is all about.
Dr. Ron Paul speech before the U.S. House of Representatives, May 22, 2007.
The American Republic is in remnant status. The stage is set for our country eventually devolving into a military dictatorship, and few seem to care.
These precedent-setting changes in the law are extremely dangerous and will change American jurisprudence forever if not revised.
The beneficial results of our revolt against the King's abuses are about to be eliminated, and few Members of Congress and few Americans are aware of the seriousness of the situation.
Complacency and fear drive our legislation without any serious objection by our elected leaders.
Sadly, though, those few who do object to this self-evident trend away from personal liberty and empire-building overseas are portrayed as unpatriotic and uncaring...
Time is short, but our course of action should be clear. Resistance to illegal and unconstitutional usurpation of our rights is required.
Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes.
But let it not be said that we did nothing. Let not those who love the power of the welfare/warfare state label the dissenters of authoritarianism as unpatriotic or uncaring.
Patriotism is more closely linked to dissent than it is to conformity and a blind desire for safety and security.
Understanding the magnificent rewards of a free society makes us unbashful in its promotion, fully realizing that maximum wealth is created and the greatest chance for peace comes from a society respectful of individual liberty.
