WOW, I sooooooooooooooooo LOVE our Gray Champ!

"War is the Health of the State" - Well, we all know the saying (at least I'd like to assume that all 100% of r3VOL do), but here is the TRUE genius of Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul; He crystalized EVERYTHING into one sentence, near the end of the speech:

"PEACE, is the Health of the People!"

So simple.

Sooooooooooooo profound.

Believe it's the first time I've ever heard it phrased that way.

If any of you know, if that phrase originated else where, please let me know. We all know that Randolph Bourne stated the now famous sentence; I personally haven't read much of his works beyond that, and have been googling the Doc's phrase, and only could find it attributed to him, so far.o)

But seriously, while I personally never get tired of hearing it, as we all know, the Doc pretty much addresses the same core issues in almost all of his speeches: individuality, rights, tolerance, peace, sound money, property rights, self-defense, sovereignty, economic freedom, the Fed, etc.

Yet, here I find myself learning something new, even if it is the same thing phrased differently, every time I hear one of his speeches!

Don't know why. It's such a simple phrase, but it literally hit me like a ton of bricks. Like, 'WHY hadn't I ever thought of that, before?' Especially, as someone who particularly appreciates turn of phrases!

Our favorite septuagenarian is truly once in a century-type individual. Solid, like forever, in my book.

Here's to the Doc, to his health, to his various institutes, and his current and future endeavors, and lasting legacy.

"War is the Health of the State, Peace is the Health of the People!"

Wow. So simple, but sooooooo sublime...

Wow.

Wow.

WooooooooWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

Sumbuddy Gimme a Bumper Sticker!

And quick....I need to get my hands on some bumper stickers with their logo and web address. Regular stickers too. Maybe a T-shirt.

Lets get the word out there and steer people to the Ron Paul Institute.

Walter Jones makes

some fiery comments at the opening. Kucinich makes an interesting connection: Peace goes with Prosperity, like War goes with Poverty. Jimmy Duncan is the only Republican remaining in Congress who voted against the Iraq war.

FANTASTIC...!!!

To promote these values and

To promote these values and add new life to this movement the most effective action RIGHT NOW is to buy David Stockman's book THE GREAT DEFORMATION. It is powerful reading and will do more to keep Ron Paul's values in the forefront than anything else we can do at this moment. It was number four n the NYT nonfiction bestsellers list, now is number seven--but that may be because of a shortage of copies for sale due to slow reprinting. Ten days ago Amazon was sold out and offering two week delivery delays. Even if you have reservations, GO READ THIS BOOK. You will see how this is a GODSEND to Libertarians. ACT ON IT! Don't miss this chance! Let's see what The Daily Paul can do.

Oyez

Peace, prosperity, education and enlightenment. Seems so simple.

"It’s not pessimistic, brother, because this is the blues. We are blues people. The blues aren’t pessimistic. We’re prisoners of hope but we tell the truth and the truth is dark. That’s different." ~CW

Fabulous! Thank you for posting!

There is still hope and they want people to know it before it is too late!

Jimmy Duncan

Never heard him before. Great anecdote.

Right before Iraq vote they gathered 'em in a room to put fear in their hearts about Saddam. Then he asked "but does he pose any eminent threat"

answer "no"

He got shit on by his district for voting 'no' for authorization for Iraq war... 10 yrs later its his best attribute everyone loves him for.

Props for staying strong!!

And Props to Walter Jones for admitting a mistake, takes courage.
