Ron Paul: Current Conditions or Just a Bad Dream 5/19/09

Click here for Dr. Paul's soon to be classic speech from yesterday. The text is here:

Could it all be a bad dream, or a nightmare? Is it my imagination, or have we lost our minds? It's surreal; it's just not believable. A grand absurdity; a great deception, a delusion of momentous proportions; based on preposterous notions; and on ideas whose time should never have come; simplicity grossly distorted and complicated; insanity passed off as logic; grandiose schemes built on falsehoods with the morality of Ponzi and Madoff; evil described as virtue; ignorance pawned off as wisdom; destruction and impoverishment in the name of humanitarianism; violence, the tool of change; preventive wars used as the road to peace; tolerance delivered by government guns; reactionary views in the guise of progress; an empire replacing the Republic; slavery sold as liberty; excellence and virtue traded for mediocracy; socialism to save capitalism; a government out of control, unrestrained by the Constitution, the rule of law, or morality; bickering over petty politics as we collapse into chaos; the philosophy that destroys us is not even defined.

We have broken from reality--a psychotic Nation. Ignorance with a pretense of knowledge replacing wisdom. Money does not grow on trees, nor does prosperity come from a government printing press or escalating deficits.

We're now in the midst of unlimited spending of the people's money, exorbitant taxation, deficits of trillions of dollars--spent on a failed welfare/warfare state; an epidemic of cronyism; unlimited supplies of paper money equated with wealth.

A central bank that deliberately destroys the value of the currency in secrecy, without restraint, without nary a whimper. Yet, cheered on by the pseudo-capitalists of Wall Street, the military industrial complex, and Detroit.

We police our world empire with troops on 700 bases and in 130 countries around the world. A dangerous war now spreads throughout the Middle East and Central Asia. Thousands of innocent people being killed, as we become known as the torturers of the 21st century.

We assume that by keeping the already-known torture pictures from the public's eye, we will be remembered only as a generous and good people. If our enemies want to attack us only because we are free and rich, proof of torture would be irrelevant.

The sad part of all this is that we have forgotten what made America great, good, and prosperous. We need to quickly refresh our memories and once again reinvigorate our love, understanding, and confidence in liberty. The status quo cannot be maintained, considering the current conditions. Violence and lost liberty will result without some revolutionary thinking.

We must escape from the madness of crowds now gathering. The good news is the reversal is achievable through peaceful and intellectual means and, fortunately, the number of those who care are growing exponentially.

Of course, it could all be a bad dream, a nightmare, and that I'm seriously mistaken, overreacting, and that my worries are unfounded. I hope so. But just in case, we ought to prepare ourselves for revolutionary changes in the not-too-distant future.

"The good news is the reversal is achievable through peaceful and intellectual means and, fortunately, the number of those who care are growing exponentially."

One of my mathematical friends took exception to the word exponential and I am looking for some proof.

He is considering his whole career which is an absurd argument in my opinion.

Here is his statement: "I'd like to see his model. I can't believe he is really making a correct mathematical statement as he has been around for quite a few years. Just about any exponential model with any sort of a reasonable exponent b (i.e. the b in the following equation: y = aeb+c ) would have taken off by now."

You must also consider the

You must also consider the fact that Ron Paul's message of freedom, liberty and upholding the Constitution was largely ignored by the mainstream media for many years. Quite a few people believe this to be due to a significant portion of the media being controlled.

It was only just a few years ago when the media opened up in a real way to everyone via the Internet. YouTube can probably take a lot of credit for that.

So, if your mathematical friend is considering the exponential growth to be over the course of Ron Paul's entire political career then the equation must be edited to include other exponential factors that are used to work against Ron Paul and subtract from his efforts (the media). We've seen it many times, but the media is becoming a lot less influential as time goes on (which is probably why the "exponential growth" is now happening).

...

consider this:

Perhaps one must also consider the death rate over the past 30 years? How many RP supporters croaked without spreading the message?

ever heard about the 11th hour? I would say that we are close now...

Not saying that I agree with this guys past affiliations however here is a lecture on exponential growth/usustainable population/ energy demands/

Kinda scary if you watch the whole thing.

The Perfect Speech

Ron Paul is the greatest public figure in the battle for individualism over the collectivist Big Gov't machine.

Let's use this speech as a lightening rod to rally Americans toward Self-Rule and in the spirit of Dr. Paul (as he wants to End the Fed) let's take up a new battle -- End the Abdication

Once we've exhausted all forms of diplomacy what will our rebellion look like?

Octobox

Abdication of what?

?

bump it again

front page please

WOW that may be his best ever!!

Just sent it out to everybody
and watched it 4 times

wonderful, worth sending out to friends.

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

Front Page Please!

This needs to be on the front page with the video embeded!!!
