Ron Paul quotes page 3
How did we win the election in the year
2000? We talked about a humble foreign policy: No
nation-building; don't police the world. That's conservative, it's Republican, it's pro-American.
It follows the Founding Fathers. And, besides, it follows the Constitution.
You want to get rid of drug crime in this country?
Fine, let's just get rid of all the drug laws.
Not only is inflation the result of the political demands of special interest
groups, the career
the ill-conceived motives of economists, it was also clearly
unconstitutional. Money of real value, gold

up the fear, just like after crisis, the financial crisis. The whole world
would end unless we bail out all
people and bail out Wall Street and bail out all the
bankers. But people now, in a very healthy way, are
skeptical of what the official
pronouncements are of the government. And I consider that very good.
It's time we brought our troops home from around the world. We need to come home
Korea. We need

One only needs to reflect on the
dramatic decline in the value of the dollar that has taken
place since the Fed was established in 1913. The goods and services you could buy for $1.00
in 1913 now cost nearly $21.00. Another way to look at this is from the perspective of the
purchasing power of the dollar itself. It has fallen to less than $0.05 of its 1913 value. We
might say that the government and its banking cartel have together stolen $0.95 of every
dollar as they have pursued a relentlessly inflationary policy.

Some supporters of the war use their
religion to justify the war. Evidently, I've been reading
from a different Bible.
During the last campaign I knew what

foreign policy and they laughed at my monetary policy. No more. No more.
You can have somebody saying the
president can do anything he wants, that civil liberties
don't mean anything, but defending economic liberties. If you say the general-welfare clause
overrides the powers enumerated in Article 1, Section 8, you can probably take that
document and make it say anything you want. But there's so much in the Constitution that
gives the responsibility to the Congress. The president's not supposed to go to war, or be in
charge of taxing and spending. The Founders thought the Congress would always remain the
number one of the three branches - that's why it's high on a hill, above the Supreme Court,
above the White House.
Maybe we ought to consider a Golden
Rule in foreign policy: Don't do to other nations what
we don't want happening to us. We endlessly bomb these countries and then we wonder why
they get upset with us?
