Ron Paul Blasts NSA Defenders: “You’re Justifying Dictatorship!”




Transcript

Piers Morgan: Ron Paul, if you had been President – which you could have been, you ran for office this time, and you could have won – are you in all seriousness telling me that you would have stopped all of this tracking of data in the way that the NSA has been doing it?

Ron Paul: An awful lot of it, but it wouldn’t be stopped, you would still have your intelligence gathering, but it would be done under the law. You would have probable cause, and you would have courts. This idea that you can go to the FISC court and get a warrant is ridiculous. The monitoring by the President, saying, “We are going to pick and chose who we’re going to assassinate, whether they’re an American citizen or not. But we have monitors, we’re going to study this”, is the rule of law? What he’s doing is repealing the Magna Carta. You can’t just do these kinds of things, and this one is not only repealing the principles of liberty, but it’s destroying the constitution. So, my question should be to all of you who defend this nonsense: why should the penalty be for the people who destroy the constitution? They’re always worried about how they’re going to destroy the American citizens who tell the truth to let us know what’s going on, but we ask the question, “What is the penalty for the people who deliberately destroy the constitution and rationalize and say, ‘Oh, we have to do it for security'”. Well, you know what Franklin said about that, you end up losing your security and your freedoms, too. So I think we’ve embarked on a very, very dangerous course, the American people are with us on this, it’s totally out of control. And I would say, if you’re confused about what we should do, just read the constitution, what’s wrong with that? Get people to repeal it and change the constitution, but not just to deny it. We go to war without a declaration, we totally ignore the constitution. That is what our problem is today, we have no rule of law, and people say, “Just let secret courts do this, and the government has to know everything, and the American people have to have no privacy”. That reflects an intimidation, people are insecure and think that we need more authoritarianism. You’re justifying dictatorship, that’s what you’re doing.

Piers Morgan: Okay, Ron Paul, I have to leave you there, in full flow.

  2. Fire Clapper... that LYING POS!

    And fire ANYONE who works for the NSA/CIA/FBI or any other US government agency who VIOLATES our Constitutional Right to Privacy.

    Our US Bill of Rights and Constitutional Right to Privacy: Fourth Amendment -- Protection from unreasonable search and seizure. The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause...

  4. Ron Paul is awesome ... you may not agree with him always - I certainly don't agree with him 100% - but he has 100% conviction in his beliefs, and most of the time, he makes sense!

  6. Or you can do as I did a decade ago. Send a "Notice of Understanding and Intent" to your state and the US attorneys general. It basically says you understand their whole criminal game and won't support it any more. When they don't reply with a rebuttal (and they can't without incriminating themselves), it becomes law and removes you from their fraudulent jurisdiction. Secured Party Creditor status is too complicated and time consuming. This is a viable shortcut.

  13. Gee, those conspiracy theorists are looking pretty good on the correctitude front.

    Maybe some people should start listening to everyone, both main stream media and alternative and giving all of the data an honest mulling?

  14. From what I hear, Ron Paul is done with running. Now..on the other hand Rand Paul is just as good. Rand can put his father in his administration. I'd be in support of that!

  16. I thought that at first, but then I stepped back and considered WHO actually benefits from all this, follow the money....
    If the goal was a surveillance police state, how do you get it to happen? Only through terrorist type attacks. The result is those in power, now have absolute power, full license for domestic spying on every aspect of our lives. To even leave the country, you will now go through a naked body scanner, to make sure you don't have a gold coin hiding up your arse.....
