Dr. Ron Paul Quote

“Times of tragedy and war naturally bring out strong emotions... Sometimes people are only too anxious to sacrifice their constitutional liberties during a crisis, hoping to gain some measure of security. Yet nothing would please terrorists more than if we willingly gave up our cherished liberties because of their actions.”

~ Dr. Ron Paul

This is as of now an all world anxiety. The incumbent governments are 'luring' the citizens to give up/set aside one or the other of our Constitutional rights and privileges for peace and security - both of which are always in the want - thanks to the avaricious and self-serving political law-makers and law-givers .

The enemy scores a victory anytime we surrender any of our rights.

The (false flag) Reichstag Fire was a tragic event that worked very well for the Nazi's. Coincidentally, the attack on the WTC has had nearly the same effect...right out of the Nazi playbook.

"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." (Benjamin Franklin) Ron Paul, the only presidential candidate in harmony with Article IV Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution

Citizens will give up nearly everything, including liberty in times of war. That's why our government always has some war going.

Ron Paul = the ONLY presidential candidate who will not kowtow to "business as usual", which is why he is CONSISTENTLY IGNORED by the MSM. Ron Paul in 2012!!!

Have we lost sight of this all too obvious fact? Are there not any more courageous Americans among us? When will enough be enough?

Dr. Ron Paul, has always been a voice of sound reasoning, in the sea of corruption. Liberty and Freedom cannot be separated. A quiet voice.

As Dr. Ben Carson, 2016, That sound voice of Reason. !

Change-out the word terrorist, and swap-in TYRANTS, and Dr. Paul's wisdom becomes an apt illustration of the calculated tactics our criminal Federal government is gleefully using to establish a police state in The Land Of Liberty. DEATH TO TYRANTS!
