Ron Paul quotes page 2

War is never economically beneficial except for those in position to profit from war
expenditures.
Ron Paul

Astonishingly, American taxpayers now will be forced to finance a multi-billion dollar jobs
program in Iraq. Suddenly the war is about jobs. We export our manufacturing jobs to Asia,
and now we plan to export our welfare jobs to Iraq, all at the expense of the poor and the
middle class here at home.
Ron Paul

It is no coincidence that the century of total war coincided with the century of central
banking.
Ron Paul

I'm convinced that you never have to give up liberties to be safe. I think you're less safe
when you give up your liberties.
Ron Paul

I believe that when we overdo our military aggressiveness, it actually weakens our national
defense. I mean, we stood up to the Soviets. They had 40,000 nuclear weapons. Now we're
fretting day in and day and night about third-world countries that have no army, navy or air
force.
Ron Paul

The biggest threat to our privacy is the government. We must drastically limit the ability of
government to collect and store data regarding citizens' personal matters.
Ron Paul

We need a new method to prioritize our spending. It's called the Constitution of the United
States.
Ron Paul

Under no circumstances should the U.S. again go to war as the result of a resolution that
comes from an unelected, foreign body, such as the United Nations.
Ron Paul

We can continue to fund and fight no-win police actions around the globe, or we can refocus
on securing America and bring the troops home.
Ron Paul

We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed and over-regulated and over-run by
bureaucrats. The Founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with.
Ron Paul

All initiation of force is a violation of someone else's rights, whether initiated by an individual
or the state, for the benefit of an individual or group of individuals, even if it's supposed to be
for the benefit of another individual or group of individuals.
Ron Paul

One day I walked into an operating room, to just be an observant, which we would do
generally, as a medical resident. They were performing this hysterectomy, which was a
caesarean section. And they lifted out a fetus that weighted approximately 2 pounds, and it
was breathing and crying. And it was put in a bucket and set in the corner of the room, and
everybody in the room just pretended that they didn't hear it. And the baby died. And I
walked out of that room a different person.
Ron Paul

A nation without secure borders is no nation at all. It makes no sense to fight terrorists
abroad when our own front door is left unlocked.
Ron Paul

There is but one special interest that we should be working for, and that would solve just
about all of our problems, and that is our liberty.
Ron Paul

I don't even like big government in Washington, let alone having super government over our
federal government, such as a North American Union, or the United Nations, or any of these
organizations. It just means more government and more attack on individual sovereignty,
which is the real issue.
Ron Paul

The federal government has no right to treat all Americans as criminals by spying on their
relationship with their doctors, employers, or bankers.
Ron Paul

The do-good liberal who said we have to take care of everybody - and they are well
intentioned - the more debt they run up to give to the poor, the poorer the people get
because they cannot keep up.
Ron Paul

We need to understand the more government spends, the more freedom is lost. Instead of
simply debating spending levels, we ought to be debating whether the departments,
agencies, and programs funded by the budget should exist at all.
Ron Paul

I had the privilege of practicing medicine in the early '60s, before we had any government. It
worked rather well, and there was nobody on the street suffering with no medical care.
Ron Paul

Nothing can stop an idea whose time has come.
Ron Paul

I think a submarine is a very worthwhile weapon. I believe we can defend ourselves with
submarines and all our troops back at home. This whole idea that we have to be in 130
countries and 900 bases… is an old-fashioned idea.
Ron Paul

Think of what happened after 9/11, the minute before there was any assessment, there was
glee in the administration because now we can invade Iraq, and so the war drums beat.
Ron Paul

We have a lot of goodness in this country. And we should promote it, but never through the
barrel of a gun. We should
do it by setting good standards, motivating people and have them
want to emulate us.
Ron Paul

Since its creation in 1913, the FED has presided over a 98% decline in the dollar's purchasing
power.
Ron Paul

Believe me, the intellectual revolution is going on, and that has to come first before you see
the political changes. That’s where I'm very optimistic.
Ron Paul

Our foolish policy in Iraq invites terrorist attacks against U.S. territory and incites the Islamic
fundamentalists against us.
Ron Paul

To me, foreign aid is taking money from poor people in this country and giving it to rich
people in poor
countries... Look at what's the result of all the foreign aid we gave to Egypt. I
mean, their dicator, that we
pumped up, we've spent millions of dollars and now there's a
more hostile regime in Egypt and that's what's
happening all around Israel.
Ron Paul
