I Agree With Ron Paul

Well there are a few things in my life I never thought I would hear myself say. There are many areas with which I strongly disagree with Ron Paul, but Ron does have areas within his platform with which I can agree. Mainly, I can agree with his views on our nation’s monetary policy.

Although I can agree that our nation should be more selective in what we do and how we act in regards to helping other nations I do not share his isolationist views.

But Ron Paul is dead-on when he says that we live in a police state and anyone who disagrees, to be blunt, is just blind to reality. There is nothing that we do or say that is not being monitored by “Big Brother.”  The Whitehouse is tracking Social Media for so-called extremist propaganda and the military can now “Illegally” hold US citizens that are “suspected” American terrorists without due process, indefinitely

The White House is signing off on a controversial new law that would authorize the U.S. military to arrest and indefinitely detain “alleged” al Qaeda members or other terrorist operatives captured on American soil.

I am all for getting anyone off the streets that is a terrorist but who are they looking at as being a terrorist? Those who oppose Obama’s reelection?  Am I considered a threat to Obama? I do not have the trust in our nation’s leaders enough to give them unilateral power to take Americans off the street without due process. This to me sounds like Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, not the United States of America.  As has been explained in depth in previous posts on Patriot Statesman the subjective nature of the word “terrorist” makes it possible to detain anyone, even innocent civilians, depending on who is doing the defining.

In a perfect example of just how this newfound power could be misapplied, well respected US Senator Rand Paul was detained today by the TSA for not allowing himself to be mistreated like so many Americans are every day.  This is not America!

Ron Paul had this to say on the situation:

One of the ultimate embodiments of this is the TSA that gropes and grabs our children, our seniors, and our loved ones and neighbors with disabilities.  The TSA does all of this while doing nothing to keep us safe. That is why my ‘Plan to Restore America,’ in addition to cutting $1 trillion dollars in federal spending in one year, eliminates the TSA.

We do live in a police state and I hope with the removal of Barack Hussein Obama will be a good start on the road to recovery of our beloved nation.

    Ron Paul is not an isolationist..

    He is a non-interventionist.

  • So when Ron say bring everyone home and have and leave our friends to fend for themselves he is not an Isolationist?

    You say “He is a non-interventionist.” That is the same as being an isolationist. But feel free to redefine words if it make you feel better..

  • I have a lot of the same generalizations and ideas that you do on Ron Paul. I do believe, however, that some of his more controversial positions render him unelectable. Thanks for the post. Check me out a http://www.mostly-right.com

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
