" If he doesn't want to call on his troops (us) to do something significant .. "
Authority either is or it isn't earned. Counterfeit authority either is or isn't stolen or violently enforced.
If I understand where Ron Paul earns his power to be an authority concerning the vital fight for Liberty against all enemies foreign and domestic, then my understanding is opposite the quote above, since Ron Paul continues to call upon the troops to question authority, to employ individual power in the necessary work required for each individual to do his or her part, and to know enough to avoid becoming that which we supposedly abhor before taking false steps.
This isn't India.
This is the place of people like Patrick Henry and Sitting Bull, or Daniel Shays and Tom Gillespie, or Josiah Warren and Martin Luther King.
We don't follow no stinking orders, and many of us are not pacifists.
If too many of us are misdirected, then perhaps Ron Paul isn't so stupid, perhaps he knows enough to plant the seed of liberty in accurate forms of currency, News Flashes, like, hey, you, did you know that what those people at The FED are doing is immoral?
Is the following true?
“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”
- Henry Ford
"The Fed has one power that is unique to it alone: it enables the creation of money out of thin air. Sometimes it makes vast new amounts. Sometimes it makes lesser amounts. The money takes a variety of forms and enters the system in various ways. And the Fed does this through techniques such as open-market operations, changing reserve ratios, and manipulating interest rates, operations that all result in money creation.
"We are talking about an awesome power. It is the power to weave illusions that appear real as long as they last. That is the very core of the Fed's power.
"Of course not everyone is instinctively against this illusion-weaving power, and many even welcome it. Tragically, the innocent who understand little about the complexity of the monetary system suffer the most, while those who are in the know reap great profit whether the market is going up or down."
End the Fed, by Rep. Ron Paul, p. 2-3 Sep 16, 2009
Is the above statements true?
How will there be a peaceful revolution before tomorrow morning if people are too stupid to do the right thing when the only other option is to fall deeper into absolute despotism?
I don't think that pacifism will work here in America, such a message as pacifism will be seen as an open invitation to increase legal fraud, increase legal extortion, increase legal torture, and increase legal mass murder at the National level of the Criminal Government now enslaving all those who make an honest living in these Consolidated States.
Ron Paul is consistently right on target, not perfect, but who, in their right mind, can argue against the following 3 things to do on the Ron Paul laundry list?
End the FED (by out competing the FED with much higher quality money)
End the IRS (by calling off those dogs of war, stop paying every one of those "employees" and see if they can find honest work in one of the States)
Bring the Troops Home (Stop obeying unlawful orders, unconstitutional orders, and orders that go against the Uniform Military Code of Justice, if for no other reason than to help save our sorry behinds from all those Criminals who have grown so powerful with their FED and their IRS and their Immoral use of The Military as that group of Legal Criminals won't like having their credit card cut in half by us)
