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.

  5. if you looked up the word “truth” it says corresponds with fact or reality this is very basic beautiful thing and that’s why Ron Paul never gets elected,he tells the truth the world is shrouded under untruths and no facts and hypnotized by no reality ponder this.”there are known unknowns,that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. but there are also unknown unknowns,the ones we don’t know we don’t know” – Donald Rumsfeld feb,12,2002 by the way i love Ron Paul……………

  9. “if you dont have anything to hide dont worry”
    funny, where were you when obama was using executive privilege to stop the fast and furious investigation? when the government has illegal activity to hide we should accept it, but we can’t even enjoy privacy while we obey the laws?

  10. If you want to start really understanding how the Government is undermining the Constitution, type in “Bob Trefz” and watch some of his videos. He does some real eye-opening material.

  11. HAHahah sometimes people can be so naive since the birth of the internet companies have known almost everything about you so why think the government wouldn’t use this? This thing stopped terrorist attacks. They don’t look into everyones things just suspects and like republicans told me with the patriot act if you dont have anything to hide dont worry. Edward Snowden should be killed he is probably a chinese spy.

  12. it hit me when it was revealed that we are arming Al Qaeda right now…. The CIA or similar type agency funded Al Qaeda in the 70’s/80s and used Osama as an asset. Supposedly he went rogue and attacked us in 2000, but look at who benefited from the results? The Military Industrial Complex types, private contractors, mercenaries, bureaucrats etc. WE are the ones with our hands on our heads and a blue glove up our arse! And now were arming Al Qaeda in Syria & Lebanon!!! fool me once…
