Happy Halloween





Madame Speaker,

I have a few questions for my colleagues.

What if our foreign policy of the past century is deeply flawed and has not served our national security interests?

What if we wake up one day and realize that the terrorist threat is a predictable consequence of our meddling in the affairs of others? (and has nothing to do with us being free and prosperous)

What if propping up repressive regimes in the Middle East endangers both the United States and Israel?

What if occupying countries like Iraq and Afghanistan – and bombing Pakistan – is directly related to the hatred directed toward us?

What if someday it dawns on us that losing over 5,000 American military personnel in the Middle East since 9/11 is not a fair trade-off for the loss of nearly 3,000 American citizens, no matter how many Iraqi, Pakistani, and Afghan people are killed or displaced?

What if we finally decide that torture, even if called enhanced interrogation techniques, is self-destructive and produces no useful information – and that contracting it out to a third world nation is just as evil?

What if it is finally realized that war and military spending is always destructive to the economy?

What if all wartime spending is paid for through the deceitful and evil process of inflating and borrowing?

What if we finally see that wartime conditions always undermine personal liberty?

What if conservatives, who preach small government, wake up and realize that our interventionist foreign policy provides the greatest incentive to expand the government?

What if conservatives understood once again that their only logical position is to reject military intervention and managing an empire throughout the world?

What if the American people woke up and understood that the official reasons for going to war are almost always based on lies and promoted by war propaganda in order to serve special interests?

What if we as a nation came to realize that the quest for empire eventually destroys all great nations?

What if Obama has no intention of leaving Iraq?

What if a military draft is being planned for the wars that will spread if our foreign policy is not changed?

What if the American people learn the truth: that our foreign policy has nothing to do with national security and that it never changes from one administration to the next?

What if war and preparation for war is a racket serving the special interests?

What if President Obama is completely wrong about Afghanistan and it turns out worse than Iraq and Vietnam put together?

What if Christianity actually teaches peace and not preventive wars of aggression?

What if diplomacy is found to be superior to bombs and bribes in protecting America?

What happens if my concerns are completely unfounded – nothing!

What happens if my concerns are justified and ignored – nothing good!

  12. I actually re opened the envelope before i mailed it and voted Gary Johnson. The reason I did was because I felt that whomever is going to receive my ballot would probably see the name Ron Paul written and just throw it away. So I hope I made you happy now. I feel we were left stranded by Dr. Paul. He should have given us direction as to who to vote for or wait for him. Im wearing my Vote for Ron Paul t shirt right now. I still have some hope.

  13. I saw wRONg Paul on C-Span this morning. He wore a big red frown on a big white face with a red rubber nose and a pointy little hat. He looked like an ice cream cone stuck on top of a neck.
    He was riding a unicycle until a sea lion with stadium horn scared him and he fell off the platform crying in a squeaky little voice!

  15. I don't get why people talk shit about this guy? I also don't get why people don't understand what he says and stands for. . .everything he says is for everyones best interest and is true and makes sense. . .I guess the ones who don't like him are still stuck in the dark ages of hate speech and spreading lies based on false information. God forbid if someone challenges your core beliefs even if they are better then yours. . .learn humility you stupid assholes.
