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.


  • Morgan is a poster boy who supports idiots like Obama and Feinstein.

  • If the NSA claims that they r doing this for rivaling potential domestic and foreign terrorism why did did 911 and the Boston bombing occur?

  • Everything just just starting to come out after he won the second election

  • Gotta love how RP only appears in one tiny segment and is sent on his way, followed by a bunch of chinless mouth breathers who go on to bash the good doctor who is no longer there to defend himself. Any time Ron or Rand go on MSM it is nothing but a hit piece to program their idiot viewership into accepting the new Reich.

  • Rand Paul 2016! We cannot afford Hillary Clinton! We cannot afford a liberal or a RINO! We are so asleep that we miss our chance to make Rand our next President, we deserve what we get. We will have sealed our fate. Rand is the only one who can revive this country from its deathbed. RAND PAUL 2016!

  • I feel the revolution is coming!!!

  • Uncle Sam is watching and hearing your ass literally

  • Freedom my ass

  • If you really care, sign the petition to pardon Edward Snowden!!

  • This is the reason why Piers left the UK.
    The UK public don’t want him here.!

  • I love how worked up Ron Paul gets – just goes to show how passionate he is about defending liberty.

  • troll the nsa com , check it out.

  • Ergo the false flag psyops of Oklahoma City and 9/11. And many others as well.

  • They’ve already committed so many “high crimes and misdemeanors” that treason is just the tip of the iceberg.. This will require a massive purge. Don’t expect it to be smooth or peaceful. They’ve built an entire economy around the permanent Police State. Millions in budgets, jobs and contracts. Don’t expect them to just retire quietly. We’re in civil war territory now.

  • Morgan I hope you burn in hell and I wish that on very few people.You are an agent of Evil! a propagandistic arrogant turd!

  • Sure, it would be good for everyone; I still wonder if he would restrain NSA from data mining all communication.

    These agencies must have convincing reasons ( classified ! ) to do so. Today it’s easy to catch criminals due to all the data at the finger tips of investigators but banksters keep getting trillions !

  • 1:55 of video Ron Paul said to repeal if you disagree with the constitution. I had a schmuck try to talk trash

  • Lost cause

  • Good point, I think he’s a true fighter for the liberty movement, reminds me of the guts and glory of our forefathers.

  • Ron paul had me until he said repeal the constitution if you want to change it sorry Ron you cant repeal the constitution its the law of the land and any law against it is no law at all and we do not have to obey it.
