Ron Paul to Discuss NSA Surveillance and other topics at DePauw University -Submitted by fonzdrew on Thu, 07/25/2013 - 01:59
"Thomas Jefferson lives. He's Ron Paul," declared presidential biographer and author Doug Wead. On Tuesday, September 10, Dr. Paul -- a three-time presidential candidate and former congressman -- will come to the campus to deliver a Timothy and Sharon Ubben Lecture, "Our Lives, Your Liberty & America's Future." The speech will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Kresge Auditorium, located within DePauw's Green Center for the Performing Arts (605 S. College Avenue). As with all Ubben Lectures, the event is presented free of admission charge and the public is invited.
The event will also be webcast live via this link.
"There is but one special interest that we should be working for, and that would solve just about all of our problems, and that is our liberty," according to Ron Paul. Among the issues he'll address in his Ubben Lecture: This summer's disclosures that the United States National Security Agency has been operating a clandestine mass electronic surveillance data mining program since 2007 . "The government does not need to know more about what we are doing." according to Dr. Paul, "We need to know more about what the government is doing."
Ron Paul remains a consistent voice for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies based on commodity-backed currency. He is known among both his colleagues in Congress and his constituents for his consistent voting record in the House of Representatives: Dr. Paul never voted for legislation unless the proposed measure was expressly authorized by the Constitution. In the words of former Treasury Secretary William Simon, Dr. Paul was the “one exception to the Gang of 535” on Capitol Hill.
