Randam Ron Paulism

Aaron Russo: Do you think America is going deeper and deeper into becoming a police state?
Ron Paul: Yeah, I think we’re moving in that direction, because there’s not much we can do without permission. The absence of a police state is that people are free, and if you don’t commit crimes you can do what you want. But today, you can’t open up a business, you can’t develop land, you can’t go to the bank, you can’t go to the doctor without the government knowing what you’re doing. They talk about medical privacy, that’s gone. Financial privacy, that’s gone. The right to own property, that’s essentially gone. So you have to get permission from the government for almost everything. And if that is the definition of a police state, that you can’t do anything unless the government gives you permission, we’re well on our way. This is something that people eventually, I hope, will get sick and tired of, and say enough is enough.”

Ron Paul: A Middle Position on Israel and Gaza?








ron paul israel gaza Ron Paul: A Middle Position on Israel and Gaza?


In light of our recent coverage of the anti-Israel protest and the subsequent pro-Israel rallies, this is an interesting take on the crisis.

Ron Paul angers both sides. In short, he acknowledges Israel’s absolute right to self-defense and then also acknowledges that the Palestinians feel oppressed and have their own right to self-defense. He does not blame Israel for the Palestinians’ situation.

His main contention is non-intervention, that the US should stay out of it, and that “our involvement … is not helpful in bringing about peace.”
