The future of the internet’s freedom is at stake. The internet is perhaps the greatest example of spontaneous order and voluntary exchange and cooperation left in mainstream society. Do not give up your freedoms so carelessly, especially when it is in the name of supposedly protecting your security. Please take a few minutes and watch this video about the ramifications SOPA and PIPA would have on the internet if passed and signed into law.
Ron Paul and Nancy Pelosi are among the members of Congress who strongly oppose this legislation.
"If Congress ever hopes to address its debt problem, it must first stop accumulating any new debt immediately, in 2012." ~ Ron Paul
"Government spending isn't just wasteful; it is often actively harmful to stated goals." ~ Ron Paul
"You have the right to spend your money as you see fit." ~ Ron Paul
Ron Paul’s ultimate aim in advocating liberty is to return centralized government power to an individual and local level. The federal government has left little doubt remaining that it cannot get its financial house in order, and what do we have to show for it? We have ongoing wars, abuses of civil liberties, diminishing economic freedoms, and crumbling infrastructure here at home. What we’re doing isn’t working, and Ron Paul is the only presidential candidate who addresses the core causes of these numerous problems: ignoring the Constitution, trampling individual liberty, and destroying sound money.
“All experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.” ~ Declaration of Independence
This is not something you will hear politicians like Mitt Romney and Barack Obama quote. The Declaration of Independence is an incredible document with unmatched dedication to the ideals of individual liberty, yet too often the core substance of the document is left unnoticed and rarely mentioned.
“War is never economically beneficial except for those in position to profit from war expenditures.” ~ Ron Paul
Perhaps the most harmful economic fallacy – propagated by Keynesian economists such as Paul Krugman – is that war can stimulate sustainable economic growth. Employing people to kill other people halfway around the world is not economically beneficial, it is destructive. Resources used in efforts to kill other people are resources lost from the free market where entrepreneurs develop new products, innovations, and other advances that increase the well-being of the vast majority of society. War diverts resources from peaceful exchange to military activities destructive of human life.
Peace builds, war destroys. Always. Do not buy the fallacy that war is good for the economy; it isn’t.
Ron Paul gave the establishment a tough blow yesterday by taking second place in the New Hampshire Republican Primary. Dr. Paul is the only candidate, save Mitt Romney, who has a national campaign set up for the upcoming primaries. Gingrich, Huntsman, Santorum, and Perry will drop out in no time after draining their campaign coffers and failing to get on the ballots of several states.
“I am the champion of the Constitution.” ~ Ron Paul
“Sanctions do not work. They are precursors to war and usually lead to war.” ~ Ron Paul
Whether force is spread through trade or military decisions is irrelevant in the long run. When a government uses force to shut down free trade, as many countries (starting with the U.S.) did in the Great Depression, the effects will often be as painful as military force. Individuals suffer, the economy weakens, and freedom is reduced. Sanctions and other trade control methods do not harm the governments they are intended for, but the people within those externally manipulated countries. ~ Legality and Morality in Foreign Policy
I had an unexpected run-in with none other than Adam Kokesh this morning. Adam is an Iraq War veteran who is now leading the charge to end U.S. wars and occupations around the world. I featured Adam in my video, Ron Paul: Veterans for Peace. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to check out Adam’s awesome work with his independent grassroots media show, Adam Vs The Man.
The world of antitrust is reminiscent of Alice’s Wonder-land: everything seemingly is, yet apparently isn’t, simultaneously. It is a world in which competition is lauded as the basic axiom and guiding principle, yet ‘too much’ competition is condemned as ‘cutthroat.’ It is a world in which actions designed to limit competition are branded as criminal when taken by businessmen, yet praised as “enlightened” when initiated by the government. It is a world in which the law is so vague that businessmen have no way of knowing whether specific actions will be declared illegal until they hear the judge’s verdict — after the fact. — Alan Greenspan
