Ron Paul: Is This Reality or Just a Bad Dream?

Enjoy this classic Ron Paul speech from May 19, 2009.

Transcript

Ron Paul: The title to my special order tonight is ‘Current Conditions or Just a Bad Dream’.

Could it all be a bad dream or a nightmare? Is it my imagination or have we lost our minds?

It’s surreal, it’s just not believable.

A grand absurdity, a great deception, a delusion of momentous proportions based on preposterous notions and on ideas whose time should never have come.

Simplicity, grossly distorted and complicated.

Insanity, passed off as logic.

Grandiose schemes built on falsehoods with the morality of Ponzi and Madoff.

Evil described as virtue.

Ignorance pawned off as wisdom.

Destruction and impoverishment in the name of humanitarianism.

Violence, the tool of change.

Preventive wars used as the road to peace.

Tolerance delivered by government guns.

Reactionary views in the guise of progress.

An empire replacing the republic.

Slavery sold as liberty.

Excellence and virtue traded for mediocrity.

Socialism to save capitalism.

A government out of control, unrestrained by the constitution, the rule of law or morality. Bickering over petty politics as we descend into chaos. The philosophy that destroys us is not even defined.

We have broken from reality a psychotic nation. Ignorance with a pretense of knowledge replacing wisdom. Money does not grow on trees, nor does prosperity come from a government printing press or escalating deficits.

We are now in the midst of unlimited spending of the people’s money. Exorbitant taxation, deficits of trillions of dollars spent on a failed welfare-warfare system. An epidemic of cronyism. Unlimited supplies of paper money equated with wealth. A central bank that deliberately destroys the value of the currency in secrecy, without restraint, without nary a whimper, yet cheered on by the pseudo-capitalists of Wall Street, the military-industrial complex, and Detroit.

We police our world empire with troops on 700 bases and in 130 countries around the world. A dangerous war now spreads throughout the Middle East and Central Asia. Thousands of innocent people being killed as we become known as the torturers of the 21st century.

We assume that by keeping the already known torture pictures from the public’s eye, we will be remembered only as a generous and good people. If our enemies want to attack us only because we are free and rich, proof of torture would be irrelevant.

The sad part of all this is that we have forgotten what made America great, good and prosperous. We need to quickly refresh our memories and once again reinvigorate our love, understanding and confidence in liberty.

The status quo cannot be maintained considering the current conditions. Violence and lost liberty will result without some revolutionary thinking. We must escape from the madness of crowds now gathering.

The good news is that reversal is achievable through peaceful and intellectual means, and fortunately the number of those who care are growing exponentially.

Of course it could all be a bad dream, a nightmare, and that I’m seriously mistaken, overreacting, and that my worries are unfounded. I hope so. But just in case, we ought to prepare ourselves for revolutionary changes in the not-too-distant future.

I yield back the balance of my time.

  8. Robin,

    Did you know that one of your favorite site “Before it’s news” carries the Alex Jones Show… yep!

    WOW! You really have a second Ron Paul. Rep. Walter Jones gave a great interview today:

    The interview starts at: 2:33:49
    Right after this interview, there is an interesting caller from Connecticut who speaks about the shooter.

  9. Post Scriptum:

    “The National Safety Council, notes that guns are used some 2.5 million times a year in self defense against criminals, meaning that firearms are utilized to protect innocent lives in 80 times more cases than they are used to end lives”.

  10. The shooting story you probably didn’t hear about; Rabid gun control enthusiasts ignore a bigger picture

    Armed Citizen, Not Police, Prevented Massacre In Oregon (+ Video)
    http://www.infowars.com/armed-citizen-not-police-prevented-massacre-in-oregon/

    “News of a shooting in Oregon earlier this week was eclipsed with news of an even more tragic one this past weekend. However, one important detail you will not hear in the mainstream media coverage is the fact that both could have been as devastating as each other had it not been for an armed citizen who stepped in and saved lives at a mall close to Portland.”

  11. Robin,

    I smell a rat here. Isn’t it amazing that theses “patsies” (James Holmes and Adam Lanza) had fathers related to the financial world.

    Don’t kid yourself, Obama wants your guns before the economic collapse occures. The timing is perfect once again.

    I mean come on, this kid wanted to commit suicide but he was wearing a bullet proof vest? It makes no sense to me. And he must have been a CHAMPION of shooting to kill so many people in such short time. Another nonsense. And yes, what about the second shooter? In a stage event, there is always another shooter, another accomplice.

    Alex Jones has been covering this since friday and is still doing it today. He got many calls on his radio show from witnesses in Connecticut with good informations. But Alex, even if he smells a rat, will never point in a direction without proofs. His credibility is bullet proof because of this behavior, and I agree he should continue this way. The relation concerning the two testimonies of the fathers about the Libor Scandal is not proven. No link so far was given. Still, I believe it would make sense. They say the list of the people to testify is secret. Hey, what about hackers? Can’t they hack the list? What are they waiting for?

    Personally I believe it is a stage event. My guts tells me it is and my guts is never wrong. I believe Alex also thinks that, but before he gets more proofs, he won’t say it. So far, all he is saying is that he doesn’t leave out this possibility…. like he says all the time: “I smell a rat here”.

  13. French Canadian,
    Please post any information about the forensics of the event and the second shooter that was seen taken into the woods. Once again there are a lot of holes in the events of that day.

  14. French Canadian,
    Anything about this? The father of Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza, Peter Lanza, was the tax director for General Electric, a corporation that paid -0- taxes on 14.2 billion dollars in profits last year. According to Fabian4Liberty, Peter Lanza was scheduled to testify in the ongoing global LIBOR scandal. In what could only be described an amazing coincidence, the father of Colorado Batman shooter James Holmes, Robert Holmes, was also a LIBOR witness in his position with FICO. According to the link at FICO, Robert Holmes was a ‘Fraud Scientist’.
    From Fabain4Liberty:
    The father of Newtown Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza is Peter Lanza who is a VP and Tax Director at GE Financial. The father of Aurora Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes is Robert Holmes, the lead scientist for the credit score company FICO. Both men were to testify before the US Sentate in the ongoing LIBOR scandal. The London Interbank Offered Rate, known as Libor, is the average interest rate at which banks can borrow from each other. 16 international banks have been implicated in this ongoing scandal, accused of rigging contracts worth trillions of dollars. HSBC has already been fined $1.9 billion and three of their low level traders arrested.
    Ladies and gentlemen, we have a motive and a link. This coincidence is incredible.

    Basically the way I see it is that the Zionist with their Black Widow statue in London seek only one thing. That is to pay back the US for waiting too long to get into to the War to stop their foolish Hitler creation. Think about it. The Zionist put Hitler into power to stop Germany from establishing their own independent currency and then when their perverted Hitler figured it out He turned on them with his peyote illusions of blond haired Nordic gods with space ships.
    So, what I am trying to tell you is that the Global Elite Zionist Plan is to make America pay for their lost control of Hitler. Thus, they deeply desire the gratification of rounding up US citizens onto trains and shipping them to FEMA camps to be exterminated. Eye for and Eye, Tooth for a Tooth they live by, beware!

  17. What hypocrisy we have in this country? Where is the outcry and outpouring of prayers for the innocent victims of our drone strikes and Black Op operations from our intelligence community? Are we so ethnocentric that we can’t see that we condone these acts of violence everyday with our tax dollars and by sitting in silence, allow innocent children and adults to be killed. Then we have Obama turning on the tears while he continues his drone strikes in so many countries. Oh, that’s right they are simply “collateral damage”. It just makes me sick.
