“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberty and wealth are in jeopardy” – Ron Paul
A friend passed along a great video of Ron Paul delivering a speech on the House floor in 2002. In it he predicted a fantastical string of political events, regarding the economy, international wars, and individual liberties … and they all happened. The video comes in just shy of 6 minutes, but is worth a look.
“Ideas are very important to the shaping of society. In fact, they are more powerful than bombings or armies or guns. And this is because ideas are capable of spreading without limit. They are behind all the choices we make. They can transform the world in a way that governments and armies cannot. Fighting for liberty with ideas makes more sense to me than fighting with guns or politics or political power. With ideas, we can make real change that lasts.” – Ron Paul
