Speaking to a crowd of 10,000 strong, Congressman Ron Paul discusses true conservatism, sensible fiscal monetary policy, and a non-intervention foreign policy.

After being introduced to the podium, Congressman Paul said, “It looks like the revolution is alive and well!”  At the mention of President Woodrow Wilson, the crowd booed.  Boos that Ron Paul says is “deserved”.

After blasting the Federal Reserve and members of both parties, Paul has predicted an economic crisis and collapse if the United States continues on its path.  At the present rate the U.S. spends $1 trillion dollars on foreign policy, we are in over 100 countries, and we have over 700 bases.  Like Ron Paul said, “how are you going to pay for it?”

I agree with Ron Paul in that it does matter who is in the White House whether it be George W. Bush or Barack Obama, the debt will continue to rise, the deficits will get bigger, and our overseas presence will continue.

Congressman Paul also condemned Woodrow Wilson for imprisoning Americans who disagreed with U.S. involvement in WWI.  This is proof that governmental contemplation of stripping the rights of the people does only date back to the Garden Plot or Rex-84 (Rex-84 called for mass movements of civilian populations and the suspension of the Constitution), but it was an idea dating back to Wilson.

Sticking to his solid rock foundations of personal and civil liberties, Ron Paul continues to support the rights of the people.  Blasting the U.S. foreign policy of “aggresive war” based on a fifty/fifty chance of attack, Paul said that it was “not part of the American tradition.”

I didn’t know this, but apparently last week before Congress, the issue of government assassinations came up.  The Obama administration was there and endorsed the issue.  Also, officials said that they have an obligation to assassinate American citizens.  Is this the government we can trust?  Liberty?

Ron Paul said that someone in the administration – and we don’t know who – makes the determination on whether that person is a threat and, thusly, is subject to being rubbed out (those are my words).  But I stand by Ron Paul in wanting to protect our rights, the Constitution, and freedom.

Congressman Ron Paul pointed out that he had more support from members in the military in 2008 than any other nominee.  Ron Paul said that since the crash (which he predicted) and people laughed at him, Fox News has had him on the network about sixty times.

When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fear the people there is liberty.  Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States.
