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


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.


  • “NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden faces 30-years in prison after being charged with espionage and theft by U.S. government” The guy is a HERO in my opinion. The government got caught with their pants down, and now they want to prosecute this guy? They really do know no shame. Welcome to the Land of the FREE – not.

  • He “went off” because SOMEONE needs to “go off” about this. If our government had more like Ron Paul we wouldn’t be in the mess we’re in today. It’s a god damn shame that he’ll never be President of these United States. A god damn shame…

  • one county in florida had it removed from their water.

  • i dun get that… isnt it a nice little democrat named obama whos spying on and stealing information from average americans and the world…??

  • well obviously you don’t care about your freedoms if you don’t want to listen to Ron Paul speak.

  • Maybe we can make a trade with England.. Piers for Russell Brand.

  • my thoughts exactly…. peirs morgan should be deported back to england…oh wait england doesnt want his worthless ass!

  • I like the video but we all need to stop watching the Piers Morgon show. his show needs to go off the air.

  • wow i feel for ron paul he just went off but i do the same thing

  • Lately I’ve been noticing a trend that YouTube users that USE ALL CAPS for their name usually spout disinformation, and really want to tell you how you “need to give up some liberties for safety.”

    protip: The leaked NSA docs specifically state that they were also running a disinformation campaign to antagonize any “suspected terrorists” who attempted to organize, or take part in, anything considered “terrorist activity.” Food for thought

  • Ron Paul is a brave American. Clapper, Feinstein, Obama, Bush… all who argue that our “safety” is paramount to legitimate their global empire and domestic police state are cowardly scum.

  • Can’t wait until Ron Paul endorses Rand in 2016 🙂

  • True I just Hate CNN they Hired this guy after he got kick out of England, I was not Supporting it I mean They have it up & it prob wont go down if they take it outta corporations at least that a start. They do Run the world at least people are starting to thing about how horrible that truly is now Profit over anything, perhaps we need to disband money & we will be better off in the long run it would be heck-dick for awhile but in the end we will be better off I think Star Trek had it right.

  • Why Ron Paul talks so fast, loud, and consistent: Because he is interrupted all the time, hardly anyone lets him get a word in, and he needs all the publicity he can get because of what the media has done to him and is still doing.

  • America broke away from GB….

    Back then, the queen began increasingly taxing people in America which was going back to GB, where she was living a life of filthy rich luxury, while they were struggling to survive….
    when they began to protest against the increasing high taxes, she commanded they take away their guns…

    Piers Morgan needs to go home

  • What’s the difference between hacking into GOV National security information to tell a story vs hacking into a dead girl to tell more of her story? Both can be acts of treason, but to support one and critique the other is hypocrisy.

  • What do you mean look at history? Countries like Britain never banned guns

  • Ron Paul would of not Stoped it He would Put in under Govment Control Under the Law not Lawless you Dum ass Piers Morgan, wait hes not an american & was kick outta his country because of the PHONE HACKed in to a 12 year old girl who was Brutally murdered so he could have more of a story, what a horrible man. Just another English Man who England Hates telling Americans what to do.
