Randam Ron Paulism
Tax revenues are up 59 percent since 1980. Because of our economic growth? No. During Carter’s four years, we had growth of 37.2 percent; Reagan’s five years have given us 30.7 percent. The new revenues are due to four giant Republican tax increases since 1981. All republicans rightly chastised Carter for his $38 billion deficit. But they ignore or even defend deficits of $220 billion, as government spending has grown 10.4 percent per year since Reagan took office, while the federal payroll has zoomed by a quarter of a million bureaucrats… big government has been legitimized in a way the Democrats never could have accomplished. It was tragic to listen to Ronald Reagan on the 1986 campaign trail bragging about his high spending on farm subsidies, welfare, warfare, etc… the IRS has grown bigger, richer, more powerful, and more arrogant. In the words of the founders of our country, our government has "sent hither swarms" of tax gatherers "to harass our people and eat out their substance." His officers jailed the innocent George Hansen, with the President refusing to pardon a great American whose only crime was to defend the Constitution. Reagan’s new tax "reform" gives even more power to the IRS. Far from making taxes fairer or simpler, it deceitfully raises more revenue for the government to waste… I want to totally disassociate myself from the policies that have given us unprecedented deficits, massive monetary inflation, indiscriminate military spending, an irrational and unconstitutional foreign policy, zooming foreign aid, the exaltation of international banking, and the attack on our personal liberties and privacy.”
Letter to chairman of the RNC Frank Fahrenkopf, March 1987
Ron Paul Legacy Award during YAL Convention
I was respected to be a partial of a festivities for a opening night of Young Americans for Liberty’s 2012 National Convention final night. After an already sparkling day in that a House overwhelmingly upheld Ron Paul’s Audit a Fed bill, Dr. Paul was was awarded a initial “Ron Paul Legacy Award” by YAL Executive Director Jeff Frazee.
The Daily Caller had an glorious news on a event:
Hundreds of immature libertarians collected Wednesday night to applaud a bequest of timid Rep. Ron Paul hours after a House upheld legislation to review a Federal Reserve that a Texas congressman has been pulling for years.
“We had a small opinion currently in a House of Representatives,” Paul pronounced to resounding acclaim during a Young Americans for Liberty eventuality in his honor.
After a immature throng began chanting, “End a Fed! End a Fed!” Paul responded: “I’ve always argued that once a Fed gets audited, a Fed will end…”
Paul’s son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul — who also addressed a throng during Catholic University on Wednesday night — urged those fabricated to email Reid’s bureau and beg with him to call a opinion on a legislation.
The lawmaker pronounced his staff unclosed video display Reid in a 1990s “going to town, articulate about how we should review a Fed.”
“Now, we have to remonstrate him that he still believes that,” Rand Paul said. “And so one of a things we can do, if everybody in this room left here and emailed Harry Reid, we consider it would help.”
Ron Paul likely that a Senate would pass a legislation if indeed brought to a vote…
The remarks were done Wednesday during a inhabitant gathering of a Young Americans for Liberty, an classification that grew out of a students ancillary Ron Paul’s presidential run in 2008.
The organisation hold a “Ron Paul Legacy” eventuality to respect a congressman’s twelve-terms in a House. Paul, who ran for boss as a Republican in 2008 and 2012, and as a Libertarian in 1988, will retire from Congress this year.
His son paid reverence to him, saying, “I consider that’s one of a things that my father’s bequest will uncover is that he’s unequivocally been over a sparse partisanship.”
“I consider that’s what’s endeared him to a lot of people,” Rand Paul said, “what’s brought a lot of people to a movement. And we consider what you’re saying is — and what we will see in a destiny — is this isn’t a finish with my father retiring. It’s a commencement of a new wave.”
