  1. Ron Paul: 'Our Constitution Has Failed'
    By Chris Good | ABC OTUS News – 15 hrs ago

    Rep. Ron Paul, the iconic libertarian congressman from Texas, has delivered what will most likely be his final address to Congress.
    In a sprawling, 52-minute speech to the House chamber, Paul lambasted U.S. government, politicians and special interests, declaring that the U.S. people must return to virtue before the government allows them to be free, and that the Constitution has failed to limit the scope of an authoritarian bureaucracy."Our Constitution, which was intended to limit government power and abuse, has failed," Paul said. "The Founders warned that a free society depends on a virtuous and moral people. The current crisis reflects that their concerns were justified."

    "If it's not accepted that big government, fiat money, ignoring liberty, central economic planning, welfarism, and warfarism caused our crisis, we can expect a continuous and dangerous march toward corporatism and even fascism with even more loss of our liberties," said Paul.

    In thinking about the champions of liberty, his lesson is a bitter one: "History has shown that the masses have been quite receptive to the promises of authoritarians which are rarely if ever fulfilled."

    The number one responsibility for each of us is to change ourselves with hope that others will follow," Paul said, urging an end to two motives that have hindered U.S. society: envy and intolerance.
  2. Our Constitution hasn't failed :We failed the Constitution.:(
  3. Yup. The Founders were BRILLIANT!

    Sadly, greed and corruption have made the Constitution moot. It took about 100 years of conniving to get to "critical mass", but now it's official... AMERICA IS A SOCIALIST/MARXIST COUNTRY!
