Chameleon! Funky.

Just sent this

to Carol Paul. I'm sure she'll show it to Ron. I told her Ron should use it as a lead-in for his speeches.

A conversation with my cousin...

After sending a link of this video in email to my cousin, a middle school teacher, below is his response and my reply to him:

"Sad thing is most folks, if they saw this, would think he is a quack."

My reply;
"You are correct I am afraid, but I believe that is because our society is systematically taught that they simply have liberty inherently while not teaching our children what it is and that it is a thing that must be maintained as importantly as brushing our teeth...

Wealth and power will always push for socialism, tyranny or both in their self interest. That natural human impulse must always be kept in check by an educated electorate under the principles of liberty and rule of law well outlined in the Constitution if this country is to survive as founded.

Liberty leads to freedom freedom can not truly exist without liberty. When asked, it seems most Americans can define neither these days. It took me 40 years of life and 15 years of dealing with our corrupt government in business to learn it on my own so, I understand the tenancy toward ignorance.

Maybe the best thing we can do is take back our public schools and make sure our kids don't start out with the disadvantage of not understanding the basic civics of the our country, their own rights and responsibilities, and the definitions of these two most important words and how they interact, liberty and freedom...

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” ― Henry Ford.

Great reply :)

Great reply :)

Sure Wish

this brilliant man could be heard by the masses the way WE get to hear him. Are there no independently owned radio or TV stations left that could air him?


RP: Spread it throughout the land.

Great message. Great video. Let's... do it!

Great video!

I'm being picky, but it's not "volunteerism", it's voluntaryism.

You read my mind!

Volunteerism vs Voluntarism, although one could argue they can be used interchangeably.

But nonetheless, it's an AWESOME video and message! It just jumped out at me...

I'm a serial entrepreneur and liberty activist from Texas!



Great job.

Thank you for this video.

Great message by Dr. Paul. I'm definitely translating it for audience in western Balkans.

Excellent Vid

I tip my hat to the creator of this very impressive video. Great work!

Dr Paul is truly an american patriot and I dare say prophet. His statements from the house floor are miles above his peers. In his vocabulary, philosophy, and simple stated truths remind me of the speeches of 200 years past.

His book "A foreign Policy of Freedom..." which is a collection of his speeches is wonderful read.

I am so truly thankful that I lived to witness the example of a real husband, father, and contributor to his society.

I need to be more like Dr Paul. Every day, in some way, I have to be more like Dr Paul.


Liberty = Responsibility

amazing job

great animation, good music, very effective

I do and I am

I've sent 1000's of emails over the past 4 years to people using many newly created email addresses (because the sheeple tend to start sending the TRUTH into their junk mail folder)and I have spent more time than anyone else I personally know spreading the message of Liberty. I listen to new podcasts EVERY night while I sleep (it burns info into your brain I swear!) from mises.og, freedomainradio.com, tomwoods.com, etc.

I'm doing everything I know how to help future generations. I'm almost 50. I've gone from owning WAY more than I ever needed to now living a minimalist lifestyle, giving away (or selling) all the useless crap that used to own me.

I'm happier than I've ever been and spreading the message of Liberty is the most fullfilling thing I've ever done. Just wish I had found Ron Paul, Lew Rockwell, Paul Craig Roberts, Stefan Molyneux, etc and all the people here on the DP a whole lot sooner!

The most important message.

Nice. A little hard to follow

Nice. A little hard to follow the words at some parts, but I can hear them so no worries. Well done.

Faithful, and short and sweet. Excellent.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Needs a definate bumping

I was waiting for things like this. That "Farewell" speech has endless moments that can be used in inspirational videos like this one. Front page please :)
