I wonder who wrote this beautiful piece.

Did Dr. Paul himself write this?

There are several gems within his statement.

I am impressed!

"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

Thanks Tom

I strongly feel...

that everything that the shooter says while locked up should be recorded and made available. I wonder what he is saying? They have him secluded from the rest of the population, and apparently have placed tape over the windows to black them out from potential viewers. Who is allowed to see the shooter? Are guards allowed to repeat what they hear him say? Are guards allowed to get close to him? Are there other agencies guarding him in lieu of local police? Why did the man appear to be sedated at the hearing? Do authorities plan to hide the true state of his mind (for better or worse) by medicating him every time he is to make a public appearance?

I think these are legitimate questions that could stop a lot of speculation if they were answered honestly.

Warning from Geo. Washington..

Government is not reason, government is not eloquent. Government is force and like fire is a fearful master.

texas straight talk series is really great

I read a bunch of them on the congressional website and had a complete change of perspective on the issues at the time. It is the main way i found outabout dr paul and dneveloped my current perspective. What will happen to them when he retires from the house? Is there already a project to archive them? I would love to see a hub with all the years of excellent short essays easily accessible

Bump: More government would not have stopped this.

Ron Paul is right.

in regards to protecting...

Gov't does a good job protecting war criminals and banksters -- these individuals are well protected.

Thank you, Ron Paul

The address showed compassion, wisdom, principle, reason... It's funny. As I was listening, I felt as if I was listening to our president.

"Government cannot create a world without risk... It would require total state control over it's citizens' lives. Liberty only has meaning if we believe in it when terrible things happen, and a false security blanket beckons." ~ Ron Paul

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

Dr. Ron Paul is Thomas Jefferson of our day

Perhaps one 'Romney Scandal' away from being the GOP nominee for president.

Thanks for a bump Chris.
