Is it no wonder the PTB are trying to stamp out free expression lock down the internet and the people? They do not want this message spreading but it needs to spread like wildfire!

Excerpts:

To achieve liberty and peace, two powerful human emotions have to be overcome.

Number one is "envy" which leads to hate and class warfare. Number two is "intolerance" which leads to bigoted and judgmental policies. These emotions must be replaced with a much better understanding of love, compassion, tolerance and free market economics. Freedom, when understood, brings people together. When tried, freedom is popular.

We have been forced to choose between the "lesser of two evils" usually involving economic interventionists swayed by envy, or social interventionists swayed by intolerance of habits and lifestyles. The misunderstanding that tolerance is an endorsement of certain activities, motivates many to legislate moral standards which should only be set by individuals making their own choices. Both sides use force to deal with these misplaced emotions. Both are authoritarians. Neither endorses voluntarism. Both views ought to be rejected.

I have come to one firm conviction after these many years of trying to figure out "the plain truth of things." The best chance for achieving peace and prosperity, for the maximum number of people world-wide, is to pursue the cause of LIBERTY.

If you find this to be a worthwhile message, spread it throughout the land...



Freedom, private property, and enforceable voluntary contracts, generate wealth. In our early history we were very much aware of this. But in the early part of the 20th century our politicians promoted the notion that the tax and monetary systems had to change if we were to involve ourselves in excessive domestic and military spending. That is why Congress gave us the Federal Reserve and the income tax.



Excessive government has created such a mess it prompts many questions:
Why are sick people who use medical marijuana put in prison?
Why does the federal government restrict the drinking of raw milk?
Why can’t Americans manufacturer rope and other products from hemp?
Why are Americans not allowed to use gold and silver as legal tender as mandated by the Constitution?
Why is Germany concerned enough to consider repatriating their gold held by the FED for her in New York? Is it that the trust in the U.S. and dollar supremacy beginning to wane?
Why do our political leaders believe it’s unnecessary to thoroughly audit our own gold?
Why can’t Americans decide which type of light bulbs they can buy?
Why is the TSA permitted to abuse the rights of any American traveling by air?
Why should there be mandatory sentences—even up to life for crimes without victims—as our drug laws require?
Why have we allowed the federal government to regulate commodes in our homes?
Why is it political suicide for anyone to criticize AIPAC ?

We know what we don't like in this country and it's quite abundant; authoritarianism, abuse of power and position and a secret government operating behind the veil of "National Security".
So much talk of secession and outright rebellion.
Anyone can destroy.
Rage is easy to sow but once the anger is spent, what then?
What is it we really desire?

Ron Paul articulates the message of liberty better than anyone since the time of Jefferson, Madison, Adams, Mason and Payne.
We need to know what it is that ultimately want, what is the goal?
Remember his words and put them to heart.

Dr, Paul is old and his time will soon pass but what he says needs to survive,
Especially if we are to not only survive but to thrive as people and as a nation.

I salute you Ron Paul and thank you for your service to our country and to all mankind.
Mankind. - think about that word.

I agree intolerance is one of the keys, but he has the first one dead wrong. It is not envy, but greed that inhibits our ability to achieve liberty and peace. Without greed there cannot be envy. Sadly greed has become the foundation of the United States.

To focus on envy is to suggest one should turn a blind eye to the pursuit of excess, and not begrudge anyone's achievement of excess, even though you may be destitute yourself. Can't really say I stand for that.

So while he makes some other valid points I see no blueprint here, only further support for the uninhibited pursuit of greed, and that we should all be happy about it.

WTF??? Further support for greed? Wow! Envy is the cause of greed not the other way around IMO. There is no greed without envy first. How can you be greedy if you do not envy what others have first?. If you do not envy what others have first then you will not covet their stuff and fuel the growth of greed. Even if you do not agree with that to say he is promoting uninhibited greed is just amazing...

If you have not heard the whole speech I encourage you to listen..

How can envy be the precursor to greed? That makes no sense. Envy is desiring what others have. Greed is desiring more than what you need no matter what others have. You can be greedy without being envious, but you cannot be envious without being greedy. All the deadly sins are sins of excess, and some would argue greed is the foundation of them all. Also greed's been on the list since the first recorded reference to "deadly sins" while it wasn't until two centuries later that envy was added.

That being said, I read the transcript. There's some good stuff in there but I always balk at the word "wealth" whenever I see it. Far too much importance placed on that these days.

If you didn't vote for Paul/Johnson and you actually want to see this Country change for the better, you are not awake.

Imo, it's that simple. But hey, if anyone thinks they can prove that theory wrong, please try. I'm listening.

S&F, OP. Thank you for posting this.

Lima-1, out.

Very well said.

Mr Paul I salute you and I hope that you have inspired future generations of like minded American politicians who love their country and their fellow citizens enough to aspire for the big vision rather than a personal agenda - the rest of the world watches in hope.

We can get our liberty fairly easily.

We just don't know that we want it.

Man, Alex Jones show today has me all restless! Everyone, please listen to this particular show today, Thursday, it reruns back to back for free, until the next day's show.
He speaks about this new movement, with Ron Paul at the helm, to restore the Republic.

I had made public statements not friendly to Libertarianism, before, as I am a fiscal left-winger. However,
I KNOW THIS COUNTRY'S BEEN HIJACKED BY GLOBALIST BANKSTERS. I am anti globalism, pro borders-language-culture, < which is a safeguard against a sovereign's destruction) I --hate-- the TSA, I --hate-- the raids on raw milk sellers and the Amish, I could go on and on, but you get the idea. I --hate-- TYRANNY.

I AM ALL FOR sloughing this inhuman psychopathy off of our red-white-and-blue.

So lets get this restoration of the Republic underway, then.

I think that this is the most important and profound speech of this century. I want to print it frame it and post it on my wall at home.
It is given with the same intention as the constitution was written.

I don't want to hear this anymore.

When he bowed out of the race, that was it. There's no more hope. I felt so strongly that this guy should win, and I'M CANADIAN!!

And now....?

Tell me why I should care.

He said something in congress spoke in congress in such a way as has not been seen since the founding fathers. He is the Avatar of liberty he has been doing this job since the 70s. He has stood and spoke in congress about what must be done when no other would.

He has shown the fortitude and potential to a future generation so that they to if they believe in liberty may one day stand as he did for the freedom he believes in and works for.
1 right voice will always stand out from the unright. Perhaps even you my fellow Canuck could be inspired to stand for your liberty by this mans example.

When all hope seems lost, desperation will fuel the flames.... hunger, health, security... when the people see that the gov' only puts newspaper pages over the mess and nothing is ever really done to clean it up, then it will be time to clean house.

Slowly each group will see NO ONE is benefiting, and we'll realize we're all in the same boat. Hoist the colours, and down the rum, because rough seas are only getting rougher.

Private property only makes wealth for the minority class of property owners, at the expense of the rest of us.

If workers owned the means of production we could produce all we need with no restrictions. That is the true and only way to peace prosperity and liberty.

The whole reason the economy is such a mess is because of the private ownership of the means to produce, capitalism. It sucks all the wealth upwards and concentrates it in the hands of a minority class. If their profits are not large enough, they remove their contribution to our economy seeking cheaper labour elsware to ensure more profit for themselves. The Capitalist economy will never be stable, it is impossible, the business cycle is a inevitable part of capitalism.


The business cycle is the periodic but irregular up-and-down movements in economic activity, measured by fluctuations in real GDP and other macroeconomic variables. Parkin and Bade, "Economics"


How can anyone think that is a good system?

Private property is not liberty, it is slavery for the majority of people. But of course the country is ran and controlled by property owners, so they are bound to protect their own capital interests. But they are not talking about your personal property, but that property used to exploit labour for profit.


The more contemporary definition of capitalism ignores the essential issue of concentration. An economic system in which private ownership is broadly distributed such that almost every person has an ownership stake in in his or her home and the business on which his or her livelihood depends is one thing. An economic system in which ownership is concentrated in the hands of a few thousand people is quite another. The first provides a solid foundation for true "one person-one vote" democracy. The latter is the foundation of a form of privatized authoritarian rule lacking any semblance of public accountability. It is also anti-market because it favors monopoly pricing and the externalization of costs, both of which are antithetical to efficient market allocation.

Ron Paul proving himself to be an idiot again. The cause of class warfare is greed and the systematic majority on behalf of the minority Capitalist class. "Envy" is a result of the problem, not the cause itself - the cause are people like Paul

“libertarian was a term created by nineteenth-century European anarchists not by contemporary American right-wing proprietarians.” Murray Bookchin The Ecology of Freedom p. 57




Murray Bookchin (January 14, 1921 – July 30, 2006)[5] was an American libertarian socialist author, orator, and philosopher. A pioneer in the ecology movement,[6] Bookchin was the founder of the social ecology movement within anarchist, libertarian socialist and ecological thought. He was the author of two dozen books on politics, philosophy, history, and urban affairs as well as ecology. In the late 1990s he became disenchanted with the strategy of political Anarchism and founded his own libertarian socialist ideology called Communalism.[7]

Rons just another suit and tie.

I have to disagree with that point. I do not have to care about, or even see or know, what another person has, in order to want lots and lots and lots of stuff for myself. It is true that envy can compound greed, or make it worse... but I feel that to say you can not have greed without envy is wrong.
