Ron Paul's Best Interview Ever

He nails nearly every demogogued issue today and slams Michael Moore, Corporatism, and Keneysian Economics. A MUST WATCH.

Sounds like the world that he speaks of is closer to what many of us desire.

Re: Ron Paul's Best Interview Ever

Morpheus,

I must agree with your assessment; that was probably the best Ron Paul interview I have seen, also!

Re: Ron Paul's Best Interview Ever

Thanks Morph, a truly fantastic interview with Ron Paul. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to hear the truth from a politician for a change. 

Thanks again for the post.

Jeff

Ron Paul for President 2012!

Pete,

I think this has its place here ...

Best,

Paul

Paying For War With A Thirty Trillion Dollar Global Deficit Explained :-

http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/wrong-diagnosis/19668

Imperial Power

The United States has 761 overseas military sites.

Not counting Iraq or Afghanistan.

Or the secret ones.

December 2007 - 510,927 service personnel (including sailors afloat) deployed in 151 foreign countries.

This includes some 196,600 fighting in Iraq and 25,700 in Afghanistan.

Imperial Collapse

Those opposed to U.S. military know their history.

There were two major collapses in Western Imperialism in the 20th century:

After World War 1: Hapsburg's, Ottomans and Romanoffs.

After World War 11: British, French

Cause: Financial Exhaustion - to end an empire strike at its financial base.

Rudyard Kipling

"If any ask why we died

Tell them because our fathers lied..."

 

Anthem For Doomed Youth

 

 - Wilfred Owen

 

 

 

 

What passing-bells2 for these who die as cattle?  Only the monstrous anger of the guns.  Only the stuttering rifles' rapid rattle  Can patter out3 their hasty orisons.4  No mockeries5 now for them; no prayers nor bells;  Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs, –  The shrill, demented6 choirs of wailing shells;  And bugles7 calling for them from sad shires.8  What candles9 may be held to speed them all?  Not in the hands of boys but in their eyes  Shall shine the holy glimmers of goodbyes.  The pallor10 of girls' brows shall be their pall;  Their flowers the tenderness of patient minds,            And each slow dusk11 a drawing-down of blinds.12 

 

 

 

"We Hate War And Strove For Peace..."

 

 

The president has kept us out of war, and must remain in office to continue keeping us out of war.

The U.S. government has been patient and explored all diplomatic possibilities, but the enemy leader has dragged his feet and made accommodation impossible.

"Our Virtue Promotes Evil."

They hate us for our freedoms and our goodness.

We have to kill them because they are evil.

They want to kill us because we are moral.

"Our Religion Versus Their Superstition..."

Our religion creates virtue - their religion breeds evil.

When my god tells me to go and kill them, this is an expression of faith, piety and moral resolve.

When their god tells them to come and kill us, that is fundamentalist terrorism.

"No History..."

We have not been militarily involved in the region before.

We have never killed any of them, or violently interfered in their society.

Their evil comes out of nowhere, because they are evil.

We never viewed them as good or useful before.

"The Risks Of Diplomacy..."

If we continue to strive for peace, our civilization will end.

"...the smoking gun in the form of a mushroom cloud..."

"Military Fantasies..."

Due to our superior virtue, resolve and military might, the war will be quick and cheap.

We will be welcomed as liberators.

The price of war is far less than the risks of peace.

"We Are Victims..."

America has been surprised by an unprovoked attack.

"Pacifists..."

Those who oppose the war...

...are cowards.

...oppose the troops.

...hate the nation.

...sympathize with the enemy.

...are evil, corrupt, unpatriotic etc...

"Inaction Equals Doom..."

A madman intends to enslave the entire world.

"Time To Teach A Lesson..."

The President did everything possible to avoid war, and we are fighting now because an evil dictator doubted our strength, our resolve, and our devotion to freedom.

"Evil Is Coming For You..."

If we don't fight now in a foreign land, someday we'll have to fight in American cities.

"We Aim For Virtue..."

We are going to liberate foreign people from their tyrannical rulers.

"This War Will End War..."

Out of the war will emerge a new world order where further war will be impossible.

Wilson's "14 points".

Treaty Of Versailles.

League Of Nations.

United Nations.

"Spreading Democracy..."

We will bring democracy to countries who don't now have it.

"Unimaginable Evil..."

The enemy isn't just a country whose interest's conflict with ours; it is a nation run by inhuman butchers.

The enemy commits unspeakable atrocities.

DURING THE WAR...

Questioning the war is condemning the troops.

The time for debate is gone, we must pull together now.

You do not change horses in midstream.

Too much information will damage morale.

Only cynics focus on "war profits".

Focusing on your loss of liberties is selfish - think of what the troops are sacrificing...

AFTER THE WAR...

Due to the evil of the enemy, the cost and sacrifice was far greater than first anticipated.

It is now counterproductive to review past "mistakes" - we all need to get on with our lives.

Questioning the war is spitting in the face of the wounded.

Our goals were not achieved, but things change...

Hindsight is easy, the fog of war is thick...

We did not achieve peace, but new institutions will...

War Is The Health Of The State.

The State Is The Health Of War.

Re: Ron Paul's Best Interview Ever

Very pursuasive but Michael Moore wasn't slammed all that much -- Paul and Moore are in agreement on corporatism -- but Moore doesn't see it as corporatism?.  Always interesting though when different points of view converge, a sign of the times.

That's a good point that you make.

Paul does bury his argument, but does it with grace and tact. Something we haven't seen in quite a while.

"Slam" is not the right word.

Re: Ron Paul's Best Interview Ever

Dr. Paul is quite the gentleman, as well as being very principled.  I met him briefly at a Campaign for Liberty event in Pennsylvania two months ago.

Jeff, very interesting small-world connection, there!

Re: Ron Paul's Best Interview Ever

I think he'll run one more time, for what my opinion may be worth.  For those who share Dr. Paul's passions, and are not already involved politically, please check out the Campaign for Liberty website and consider donating your time/money!
