I want you all to listen up, and listen good!

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...

Closing statement:

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.

Right on time

as we use to say 'back in the day'.

Bless you, Swifty

The kind of speech you read in Civics Class

and it makes your heart swell. Some day, years hence, children (and old-timers too) will read those word (or watch the You Tube speech) and honor the boss and the R3VOLution.

If his words don't cause you to act, time is up

So many, TOO many, people I confront and land in conversation with don't flinch at the eminent signs of military and government prowess. It's seen in movies, with a sense of danger for those involved. WE are the ones involved and on the receiving end of their actions and our disability to confront moral low-ballers. Can't remember off the top of my head what required age I need to seek office, but it's damn time to step up and show the brainless and ignorant how to lead into prosperity, Jefferson-style.


The revolution is just getting started.

Thanks, inspired again!



Let's get this one

On the front page. Thanks for the Focus Bomb, Swifty.

The first of my ancestors arrived in 1687, Indentured to serve another for 4 years, we fought in the Revolutionary war, Civil war, WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam, and Served during Desert Shield/Storm, Now my Family and I serve The "Revolution"

We are patriots

This is why whenever someone calls myself, themselves, or Ron Paul supporters in general; paulites, paulbots, paulers, etc, I always correct them - we are patriots first and foremost. We are defending the founding principles of our country; life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness or property.

As Ron Paul often says himself, these are not his ideas alone, but those of the founders of our country and others.

Good post

...and it was well said. Thanks

Especially at times like these, the man's words encourage me.

From the bottom of my heart, gratitude for posting this.

I'll upvote that speech

And then I'll back it with this speech given yesterday where Ron Paul makes clear he's not going to unite behind Romney. He turned the Texas GOP into a liberty rally and was quite defiant.


Bumped Up!

For this inspiring comment.

It is the perfect example that Ron Paul is as consistent as he has ever been.

Thank you. I needed that.
