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.


  • ron pauls cool, but he’s got some weird policies. For the most, ignores the present issue of climate warming and is against any sort of government funding for higher education

  • According to our government there’s always something to be afraid of. Did you know that if we cut our national security fund by 85%, it would still be the largest in the world? It just goes to show how right Benjamin Franklin was when he said: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

  • Ron Paul is so ignorant – when in the history of this country have you seen an American hero giving American secret documents to China via a televised broadcast? NEVER it is cowardly. Snowden could have effected change through legal channels, why are you hiding? Rosa Parks stayed in her sat despite the fact that she risked her freedom, safety and her life. Snowden compromising the safety of Americans by handing the enemy our playbill is nothing short of treason! Punk coward!

  • Piers Morgan discusse me he make me sick, stay the hell away from this wicked servant of this evil media

  • Yes they can they are in power now they are commuist national Socialist party running things now, Ron Paul you gave it your best shoot along with others and we see that this evil corrupted administration is still killing our constitution and libertys. It’s going to take the blood of the Sons and Daughers of the Republic of the United States to cleans these wicked traitor from off this land, talking debating is does nothing they don’t debate they ignore every one everything of their agenda 21

  • you’re a fucking asshole

  • lol…you don’t have anything to hide? Your mama loved the name “abct1235” so that is your real name yeah? You are a F-ing hypocrite. Arguing that becuase Bush f-ed the country it is ok for Obama to continue or even make it worst. You survived before so you can bla bla…. I am not a Republican but not a Democrat troll like you either..

  • You see Ron Paul represent the people while the list after him you mentioned serves a “global elite” or “world elite”. They made the EU. Now even most of the countries are bankrupt in the EU they pushing toward changing the USA to a unified North America that will be supporting with a free market for the EU. After the USA has almost no industries there are suddenly free trade contracts with the EU. Lot of things are changing but the media is quiet about it.

  • So what are you trying to tell me that i don’t already know. What i was saying was i knew this was happening for years based off logic and i just don’t care anymore everyone who is elected does these things so why do we even care we survived before and we can survive after this.

  • meanwhile obama extends the patriot act and creates and signs his own version of it called the NDAA which is even worse. just proof that they are simply puppets beings controlled by the same puppet master. red or blue, they dont give a fuck about you.

  • only because we know that their questions are simply traps to distract us from the real problems. which is erosion of our liberties. something you wont hear often on TV unless its ron paul or jesse ventura speaking. im glad he talks over piers morgan, he never has 2 cents worth of knowledge anyways. go watch his interview with larry pratt. and you tell me who was more civilized and open for discussion, its only so long before you get fed up with it and do whats right. that is, speak the truth.

  • i wish people would have the same sympathy for the alex jones interview. he went crazy because if we continue to play their games, we will continue to lose.

  • I’m so sick of hearing the who was/is president argument. I dont care if it was/is Chewbacca, its WRONG, ORWELLIAN, EVIL, AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL. May the force be with you.

  • Piers Morgan got kicked out of his BBC / UK job because he falsified British soldiers with guns aimed at Muslim enemies sparking retaliatory deaths of UK soldiers. MSNBC gives him a paycheck b/c they are corrupt as him. They don’t report unbiased news, they just spew Obama propaganda.

  • america is in the process of going from the first matrix, to the third matrix, where the citizens are controlled by force.

    1984 too had no laws

  • EVERY Ron Paul video is the same: show a person asking a question, show Ron Paul’s crazy rant answering the question, often saying the words constitution,liberty or freedom 800 times, then cut away before hearing the response from the person asking the question. Never allowing the time to hear the other side of things. You know, for a bunch of so-called “defenders of free speech,” libertarians seem to do a hell of a lot of censorship.

  • The patriot act? that has been around for a while buddy. And good ole george bush signed it into being and republicans said it would protect us from terrorists and if i didn’t have anything to hide i shouldn’t worry. It was signed October 26, 2001.

  • Republicans said about the patriot Act what? Biden wrote it and a Democrat congress approved it.

  • Thats what republicans told me about the patriot act. What i also find funny yet disturbing is this story broke 6 years ago but we have to pin this on Obama right? The post office opens parcels at random google sells your info to companies youtube is probably telling a youtube partner or a company what you like so they can draw you to their videos or products. So it doesnt take an idiot to put these things together and realize the government has been doing this forever.

  • Ron Paul for prez
