Ron Paul: Why Obama Is Wrong on Libya

Congressman Ron Paul, a member of the House Foreign Relations Committee and honorary chairman of Campaign for Liberty, criticized President Obama’s decision to impose a no-fly zone over Libya in a video shot earlier today.

In the video, Congressman Paul argues that:

  1. The action is an act of War.
  2. The no-fly zone is unconstitutional because Congress has not authorized it, a point Senate Foreign Relations Committee Ranking Member Richard Lugar agrees with.
  3. President Obama has illegally seceded U.S. sovereignty to the United Nations.
  4. The United States cannot afford the financial burden of more military action in the Middle East.

    It wasn’t the U.S. President that invoked a no fly zone over Libya it was the UN.

    For the next broadcast of this much gravity, use a tight shot, just his head and shoulders, and put a mic on a table right under him (out of shot).
    The medium is the message.

    I know, i just find it unbelievable that such alarge percentage of the population believes that war is a necessary evil to maintain peace, yes war has been fought on a noble basis in the past, but those days have long since fleeted into distant memories of our forefathers, it is now just for profit, nothing else, and it is so disgusting, the global leaders want depopulation, fine they can start with themselves, people need to stand up and say they are not willing to die for these NWO scum

  • This is the 4th war we’re now engaged in since the antiwar candidate known as Barack Hussein Obama was elected. Looks like some would get a clue by now.
    Ron Paul 2012!
