Ron Paul Like A Wrecking Ball! The Boss Weighs In On "Miss FED" & Crimea ~ CNBC


Financial system deeply flawed: Ron Paul
Ron Paul: US stirring up trouble in Crimea
Ron Paul: Half of US economy is socialized
Ron Paul: Crimea secedes. So what?
Residents of Crimea voted over the weekend on whether they would remain an autonomous region of Ukraine or join the Russian Federation. In so doing, they joined a number of countries and regions — including recently Scotland, Catalonia and Venice — that are seeking to secede from what they view as unresponsive or oppressive governments.

These latter three are proceeding without much notice, while the overwhelming Crimea vote to secede from Ukraine has incensed U.S. and European Union officials, and has led NATO closer to conflict with Russia than since the height of the Cold War.

What's the big deal? Opponents of the Crimea vote like to point to the illegality of the referendum. But self-determination is a centerpiece of international law. Article I of the United Nations Charter points out clearly that the purpose of the U.N. is to "develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples."

Why does the U.S. care which flag will be hoisted on a small piece of land thousands of miles away?

Critics point to the Russian "occupation" of Crimea as evidence that no fair vote could have taken place. Where were these people when an election held in an Iraq occupied by U.S. troops was called a "triumph of democracy"?

Perhaps the U.S. officials who supported the unconstitutional overthrow of Ukraine's government should refocus their energies on learning our own Constitution, which does not allow the U.S. government to overthrow governments overseas or send a billion dollars to bail out Ukraine and its international creditors.

and to statements of commenters such as this one:
"Truth is that Paul is supporting Putin 24/7 in the most disgusting and sick way by claiming that the annexation of Crimea is a legitimate democratic "secession" and blaming Americans for what is going on in Ukraine, parroting line by line the Kremlin propaganda about their "legitimate spheres of influence". That's not 'anti-interventionism' of any kind, but rather a direct and unqualified support for Russian military aggression. He is not even a 'useful idiot' anymore, but just an idiot.The picture is spot on, me thinks."
