All lovers of liberty should take the time to listen to Dr. Paul's final speech on the floor of the US House of Representatives. I sincerely doubt I will ever see his likes again but one can always hope against hope. His commitment to liberty is indisputable. Perhaps his son will pick up the banner in 2016.
I cannot but feel a deep sense of loss at a principled man who served his country and his citizens and somehow managed to keep alive his principles in the midst of that moral cesspool on the Potomac.
You may not agree with all of this views but at least you knew exactly where he stood and WHY.
The speech is a bit long for we in this generation whose attention span barely exceeds that of a gnat but grab a cup of coffee or a cup of tea and tune in to hear someone who makes sense and really means it!
Pay close attention to Dr. Paul's comments on the home schooling movement and how it is the remedy for the future generation of lovers of liberty. The government controlled public school system is responsible for the economic and political ignorance that now has the current generation firmly in its grasp.
"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat
Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput
