Ron Paul’s Speech in New Hampshire: A Victory for Liberty




Transcript

Ron Paul: Thank you very much. I — I really don’t have to introduce my wife. I think you know my wife, Carol.

(APPLAUSE) And we have a few other members of the family here. We have a daughter-in-law, Peggy. And…

(APPLAUSE)

We have Lisa, Linda — Linda — and Mark. And, you know, we have another member of the family, but he’s also on the staff, but I think technically in the family he’s a grandson-in-law. That’s Jesse Benton.

(APPLAUSE)

But it is a delight. And, Jim, Senator Forsythe, thank you very much for your support, along with Andy, for your co-sponsorship, and Ray (ph). I appreciate all that. That was just great.

I do want to mention three names of the individuals who did so much organization up here, and that was Jared Chicoin (ph), as well — Jared (ph), I don’t know if he’s here.

(APPLAUSE)

He’s probably still making phone calls or something.

(LAUGHTER)

And, Bob Goodman (ph), he’s — he does a tremendous amount of work here.

(APPLAUSE)

And, George Braun (ph), he was fantastic.

There was — there was one other acknowledgment I wanted to make. I wanted to thank the Union Leader for not — for not endorsing me.

(APPLAUSE)

Now, I called Governor Romney a short while ago, before he gave his talk, and congratulated him, because he certainly had a clear-cut victory. But we’re nibbling at his heels.

(APPLAUSE)

But there was another victory tonight. He had a victory, but we have had a victory for the cause of liberty tonight.

(APPLAUSE)

There is — there is no doubt — there is no doubt that this whole effort that we are involved in will not go unnoticed, let me tell you.

(APPLAUSE) I think the intellectual revolution that’s going on now to restore liberty in this country is well on its way, and there’s no way they’re going to stop the momentum that we have started.

(APPLAUSE)

And that is the victory that you have brought about, because you have been the ones that have done the works. There’s a lot of people here, but the ones across the country — the donors and the excitement on the campuses — it’s just unbelievable.

We don’t always get the coverage or the interest shown on what — what is going on, because if they did, they wouldn’t — they wouldn’t be ignoring so much of what we’re doing. But, you know, I find it sort of fascinating when they finally get around — and this is different people, it could be in the media, could be our opponents, or whatever — but I sort of have to chuckle when they describe you and me as being “dangerous.”

(APPLAUSE)

That’s one thing they are telling the truth, because we are dangerous to the status quo of this country.

(APPLAUSE)

AUDIENCE: President Paul! President Paul! President Paul! President Paul! President Paul! President Paul! President Paul! President Paul! President Paul!

Ron Paul: And we will remain a danger to the Federal Reserve system, as well.

(APPLAUSE)

Yes. And the Fed, right (inaudible) yeah.

(APPLAUSE)

You know, in studying monetary history from the beginning of our country, and even throughout all of history, monetary policy on periodic occasions will come — become the dominant issue. And we have emphasized that, and it has become an important issue.

Just think: This is the first presidential campaign that the subject ever came up since the Federal Reserve was started. So we are now — because of what is happening, it will remain a dominant issue. There’s no way they’re going to put it to bed, because they have destroyed our money. It’s worldwide. There’s a financial crisis going on. And it’s only sound money and personal liberty that can solve the crisis that we have today.

(APPLAUSE)

But the one reason — the one reason I talk about the monetary system so much, it was a sneaky, deceitful way to pay the bills. You know, an honest government that wants to be a big spending government would tax the people, and then the people would know what they were doing. If — if we had to pay taxes for everything that they do, you know, the people would rise up and — and stop it. So then they started borrowing money a lot, and then people didn’t notice that quite as much, because they didn’t pass that on.

But then they resorted to the printing of the money. And that is why the Federal Reserve was established, to take care of the powerful interests, the military industrial complex, the banking system, and deficit financing. And there’s a couple of reasons they have deficit financing. Sometimes there are conservatives that want deficit financing, and sometimes there are liberals who want deficit..

(BOOING)

And they have resorted — they have resorted to this. And, of course, this is why we are facing this crisis today.

But it also serves those interests who like to think that we have this responsibility. They claim it’s a moral responsibility to take our young people, put them into the military, and send them hither and yon around the world, policing the world, and using up the money.

(BOOING)

So just — just as we have been able to bring to the forefront that most important issue of funny money, fiat money, the paper money system, the Federal Reserve, we have brought to the forefront — others have tokenly talked about it. They get in office and they do nothing about it.

But right now, it is this liberty movement, which is seen as a patriotic movement, an individual liberty movement, that is saying to the country and to the world, we’ve had enough of sending our kids and our money around the world to be the policemen of the world. It’s the time to bring them home.

(APPLAUSE)

AUDIENCE: President Paul! President Paul! President Paul! President Paul! President Paul! President Paul!

Ron Paul: Bring them home.

AUDIENCE: Bring them home! Bring them home! Bring them home! Bring them home! Bring them home!

Ron Paul: The one thing is, is we do know they will come home. My goal and our goal has always been to bring them home in a deliberate fashion, to avoid major economic crisis by destroying our economy by spending so much overseas.

In the last 10 years, the wars that have gone on have added $4 trillion of debt. And I don’t think we have been one bit safer for it. I think we have been less safe because of all the money that we have spent overseas. So this is the issue now. It is — it is an issue that I think is crucial. Jim mentioned in the introduction that, you know, so often they say that if we tell people that we think we should spend less in the military, they say, “Oh, that means you want to cut defense.” No, if you cut the military industrial complex, you cut war profiteering, but you don’t take one penny out of national defense.

(APPLAUSE)

And besides — besides, we’re flat-out broke. Fortunately, we did not have to fight the Soviets. The Soviets brought themselves down for economic reasons. Do you know that they were so foolish and thought themselves so bold that they could pursue their world empire that they invaded Afghanistan?

(BOOING)

(LAUGHTER)

But we will come home, but if we do it now, calmly and deliberately, we can save our economy here at home, because there are a lot of people who are suffering here at home.

You have to stop the inflation, because that’s what destroys the middle class, and that’s what transfers the wealth from the poor and the middle class to the wealthy. And that is why the wealthy got their bailouts and the middle class shrunk and they lost their jobs and they lost their houses.

So this is what we have to do. We have to cut the spending. This is why I have made a token suggestion in the first year in office: We would cut at least $1 trillion from the budget.

(APPLAUSE)

Now, the one thing that — the talk you hear in Washington is pure talk, because there is nobody suggesting — the other candidates are not talking about real cuts. They’re talking about cutting proposed increases out in 10 years. They say, oh, we’ll cut a trillion dollars. Yeah, a trillion dollars over a 10-year period, which is $100 billion every year. Our national debt is going up in real terms $100 billion every month, and they claim that’s cutting, and they’re yelling and screaming, “Oh, we can’t cut, we can’t cut.”

We do have to cut. We have to live within our means, if we want to be able to at least take care of the people who have been made to be so dependent on the government. I mean, we have to work our way out.

I would say if we did this and cut this overseas spending, at least we might be able to allow the Social Security beneficiaries to get their checks and medical care be provided. But if we continue to do what we’re doing, the results are that the dollar is destroyed, and the whole thing comes apart, and it’s going to be worldwide phenomenon. Already — already, Social Security beneficiaries are suffering a lot. Their income is shrinking because the value of the dollar is going down, so they’re getting — they’re getting their checks cut. And that is why you have to think about the cutting and stopping the inflation.

But overall, you have to ask, once again, as our founders did, what should the role of government be in a free society? The role should be very simple: the protection of liberty!

(APPLAUSE)

AUDIENCE: Ron Paul revolution, bring us back our Constitution. Ron Paul revolution, bring us back our Constitution. Ron Paul revolution, bring us back our Constitution. Ron Paul revolution, bring us back our Constitution.

Ron Paul: Wonderful, wonderful. You know, the Constitution was written for a very precise manner. It was not designed to restrain the individual — not to restrain you — it was to protect your liberties and to restrain the federal government.

(APPLAUSE)

But liberty — liberty has to be re-emphasized because we have been careless over the last 100 years. We have taken liberty and chopped it up into pieces. Some people think liberty has to do with personal habits, which I agree. Other people think liberty is how to spend your money, and they defend that part and then they fight about when to do what.

I think what we need to do is make this emphasis that liberty means you have a right to your life and your privacy and the way you want to live your life, as long as you don’t hurt people, and you have a right to keep and spend your money as you want to.

(APPLAUSE)

But freedom — freedom is a wonderful idea, and that’s why I get so excited. But I really get excited when I see young people saying it. It is a wonderful idea. Freedom is popular, don’t you know that?

(APPLAUSE)

Freedom brings people together. I think it’s magnificent that the crowds that have come out over the weeks and months have been very diverse, because it should be, because some people want their freedom to practice their religious one way, maybe another way. Some might not even want to practice it at all. But freedom, if you understand it, you should all fight for freedom because you want to exert your freedom the way you want.

Same way with economic freedom. It should bring people together. And I think this is one reason — people worry about, how are you ever going to put in a coalition or how are you going to — oh, no, they don’t want a coalition. They say, how are you going to compromise and give up some of your beliefs in order to get some things passed?

You don’t have to compromise. What you have to do is emphasize the coalitions that people want their freedoms for a different reason and bring them together.

(APPLAUSE)

It’s been — America has been the greatest country ever, the most prosperous country ever, the largest middle class ever. It’s not that way today. Our middle class is shrinking. The country is getting poorer. The wealth it’s apparent is based on debt. The few who really hold the wealth, it’s mal-distribution because it shifts over due to the regulations that control the government.

We have had too many people too long in the last 100 years thinking that it was beneficial more to be — to have high-paid lobbyists to — to get and to find out what they can get from the government, rather than us petitioning our government in a proper manner to — petitioning our government and demanding our freedoms back again.

(APPLAUSE)

Now, a lot of times, they — they give us — they give us trouble, and they say, freedom, you people are just too selfish. All you want to do is have your freedom. You know, and — and…

(LAUGHTER)

They — they — they argue that that is the case. But the thing of it is, the people, the bleeding hearts — and I understand them and I recognize them, and I believe most of them are well intended — but it doesn’t work, is the problem. All that good intentions, of saying, we’re going to give everybody a free house and have no loans and then they can borrow against, you know, the equity, and look what happened. It was a bubble. It burst. And they lost their houses.

So the — the humanitarian instincts are there across the board. What we have to convince them, if you are a true humanitarian, you have to fight and argue the case for free markets, sound money, property rights, contract rights, no use of force, and a sensible foreign policy, so we don’t waste our resources.

(APPLAUSE)

We’re — we’re well on our way. We’re well — we’re well on our way. People have asked me, what did I expect 5, 10 years ago? I had no idea. I always assumed that the best I could do is set a record. I didn’t know you were out there.

(APPLAUSE)

But it’s — it’s no longer that irate, tireless minority that is stirring up the troops. Now that irate minority — and so tireless, as you have been — it’s growing by leaps and bounds. It’s going to continue to grow by leaps and bounds. And we will restore freedom to this country.

Thank you very much. Thank you.

(APPLAUSE)

      In public, the Israelis said nothing. However, under the table, they told us NOT to go to war. You are simply factually incorrect.

      Here are 3 news stories backing me up:

      Come on. Bring your evidence. Don't just be another Ron Paul parrot who makes claims without backing it up.

    THE REASON WHY WE WENT INTO IRAQ AND NOW IRAN WAS BECAUSE OF ISRAEL WHO THOUGHT THAT SADDAM WAS A THREAT TO THEM AND NOW FEEL THAT AHMEDINEJAD IS ALSO. WHO'S NEXT? DO WE HAVE TO KEEP BAILING OUT THE INSTIGATORS? WHY DO WE SEND MONEY TO OUR OTHER ENEMIES LIKE PAKISTAN AND ALLOW THEM TO BE NUCLEAR? INSTEAD OF BEING SCARED OF THESE COUNTRIES THAT CAN DO NOTHING MORE THAN THROW ROCKS AT US, WE SHOULD BOMB THEM INTO THE STONE AGES! MAYBE WE SHOULD TAKE A REAL HARD LOOK AT THE HISTORY OF THE MIDDLE EAST AND SEE WHO THE REAL VICTIMS AND TROUBLE MAKERS ARE!!!

  14. Presenting the Scott R 9-9-90 plan for our defense spending cuts: Cut nation building and overseas bases by 90%... that still leaves 90%*900 = 90 bases open. Which bases determined by congress vote and must be approved by 2/3rds popular vote in the occupied nation. Increase Navy budget by 9% to keep a strong presense in international waters. We can use this to help offset the gaps left by the 810 base closures. That in fact increases the mobility of our military by having Navy personal instead of bases and nation building. Add 9% to our border control budget. Killing 2 birds with one stone here. #1 reducing illegal alliens helps us keep are jobs and #2 increases the protection against bomb threats from Iran. Current budget is about 964.8 billion. I think the above would be a fair compramise for Neoconservatives and Libertarians.

  16. Fiscal conservatism:

    Fiscal conservatism is the economic philosophy of prudence in government spending and debt.[36] Edmund Burke, in his 'Reflections on the Revolution in France', argued that a government does not have the right to run up large debts and then throw the burden on the taxpayer.

    To the democrats that have been attacking the Ron Paul web page. HOW can you allow the government to steal our money in this way? That is exactly what you are doing by supporting ANYONE who's policies will not result in a balanced budget. Regardless of how the money is spent and what your favorite entitlement is... it always ends the same way. Inflation or taxation.

  20. Marty you understand the situation in the US better then about 70% of the population I'm afraid.

    Ron Paul is the worst- Obama "ended" this war for political reasons. Him and the Neo republicans have not succeeded in making the middle east safe and democratic. (that seems like their goal doesn't it?) Obama has just offered 3 billion in cuts over 10 years by combining government agencies. He is trying to steal our independant votes with this move folks! He is NOT for reducing the size of the government. What is 3 billion over 10 years when the defecit is 15 trillion? He is playing you democrats. I know you are suffering, but think deeper! I used to be a brain washed democrat long long long ago. It was through education that I realized that socialism DOES NOT WORK. We MUST stop polititians that buy votes to obtain power. Vote for who will give you the MOST RIGHTS! Not the most entitlements!!! This system of printing money and giving it to people to buy their vote is an outrage. It creates inflation and therefore just takes all that money back! WAKE UP!!!!!

      In response to your claim that "Obama 'ended' this war for political reasons," Obama opposed the Iraq War from the start. He gave a speech on the day the started about his opposition. I suggest you watch it if you were against the Iraq War - it's rather moving.

      I'm not going to get in a debate with you over economics. If you think that we should destroy the Federal Reserve, then we are simply never going to see eye-to-eye on that matter.

      • You don't want to debate me on the FED because deep down you know it is a failed government entity and you have no solutions. Inflation has hit fuel, education, health care, and food the hardest. All things that impact the poor the most. How ironic is it that the very people I go out and defend on this issue every single day attack my conservative values? Who is the true patriot???

        As for Obama promissing to end the war- another tactic he used to get elected... all this CHANGE he wanted to do, but what has been done? Where are his details??? He wants to help the 99%, but he is willing to take 1.3 million in tax payer money for his Christmas vacation in Hawaii. That is more then Newt took from Fannie and Freddy. Doesn't that IRK you??? Look at his actions... not at what he says.

          Scott. You do realize that America has had extremely low inflation for the last 50 years. So no, the FED is not a failed government entity at all. You have to at-least observe reality correctly in order to make points. Actually, the vast majority of economists agree that the FED is absolutely necessary. The only group who disagrees are a small group of Austrian economies whose ideas have been disproven again and again.

          As for your Obama attacks, let me take that one at a time:

          - Promise to end the war = tactic claim. FALSE. He opposed the war from day 1. Back before he was even running for President.

          - Change. Health care reform. Financial services reform. Tax cuts for the middle class. Stimulus. These things all happened. So there has been real change.

          - Vacation claim is laughable. All Presidents take vacations. And there is a big difference between taking a vacation and getting paid to lobby.

        • @Ron Paul is the Worst Extremely low inflation? Where have you been. Gas was 99cents / gal in 1995. 17 years later it is $3.50. That is a 20% increase per year. Health care costs in the last 10 years have doubled. That's 10% inflation there. Price to attend college for 4 years has gone from 16000 in 1995 to 35000. Also more then doubled. You see, the "observed" inflation rate by the fed discounts the volitle sectors unfairly so they can keep the population uninformed. Adding further to this, cheap Chinese made goods are thrown right in to that equation. We all know China is manipulating their currency and adding tarrifs to our products so that they can sell us cheap flat screen TVs.

          Oh... and I meant what has he done that has been a change for the good. I should have been more clear. Show me one thing he did to balance the budget. We can not just keep adding more and more expenses to satisfy the masses.

          I mis-spoke above. I meant to say that, "During the Obama Administration, there has been the lowest inflation of any time during the last 50 years."

          Agree with you about the China currency manipulation problem. Barack Obama is willing to something about it and Ron Paul isn't. Sounds like you should be a Barack Obama supporter.

          Obama, to balance the budget? He keeps trying to end the Bush tax cuts, but there is this party in Congress that keeps stopping him. Oh yea, the Republicans. Also, Obama saved us a lot of money by ending the War in Iraq and the recent budget created long-term cuts to the tune of $1 Trillion.

        • We have 2 seperate problems... the FED which has been going on since before Obama and the current president. You are right about the inflation leveling off- the reason being we are in an undeclaired depression. See what happens is the FED and government have this easy money policy that creates a bubble... but eventually prices get so high that folks can't even afford something at all anymore. It is called demand destruction. That is where the bubble breaks similar to what happened in housing. The boom bust cycle hits us very hard with our houses underwater and jobs few and far between. I actually think I despise the FED more then Obama to be honest with you because this has been going on for a LONG LONG time. Paul does not want to do anything about the China situation yet because we would be hypocrits of course. I am for free trade between countries, but if cheating is going on it's a problem. Rather then tax them back, we need to end the FED or at least introduce a competing currency which Paul talked about doing recently. FWIW, neither Dems or GOP is willing to give up their favorite programs to solve the budget. Only Paul is. See my next post above.

If you think your smarter than Ron Paul who has over 20 Years Exp. in the Govt. , all of his supporters, the Former Chief Executive of the CIA, the other people in the Government the Military, and other prominent citizens, then you need to get serious help. Your an egotistical, arrogant fool. I believe there is a name for the mental handicap you suffer from...

          I actually think Ron Paul is really smart! He is an incredible politician. He has created an alternate history that so many people buy into! I have no doubt that I would never be able to do something as impressive. However, I feel a moral obligation to do what I can to stop him. I am a young man (in my 20's) and I don't want to see this country that I love go down the terrible road that Ron Paul has laid out.
