"Congressman Too Truthful" April 29, 2002Submitted by silverlady on Tue, 07/10/2012 - 13:57
Excerpts from “Keep Your Eye on the Target”, by Congressman Ron Paul (2002):
"The other day, I made a huge "gaffe" on national TV: I told the truth about the crimes of the U.S. government....I was interviewed on C-SPAN's morning "Washington Journal,” and I used the opportunity, as I do all such media appearances, to point out how many of our liberties have been stolen by the federal government. We must take them back....The Constitution, after all, has a very limited role for Washington, D.C..
If we stuck to the Constitution as written, we would have: No federal meddling in our schools; no Federal Reserve; no U.S. membership in the UN; no gun control; and no foreign aid. We would have no welfare for big corporations, or the "poor"; no American troops in 100 foreign countries; no Nafta, Gatt, or "fast-track"; no arrogant federal judges usurping states rights; no attacks on private property; and no income tax.
We could get rid of most of the cabinet departments, most of the agencies, and most of the budget. The government would be small, frugal, and limited.
That system is called liberty. It's what the Founding Fathers gave us. Under liberty, we built the greatest, freest, most prosperous, most decent country on earth...."
