Here's some light audio for a Sunday afternoon! Ron Paul took to the house floor in the summer of 2003, in the shadow of the unprecedented war of aggression against Iraq, in a brave attempt to inform the American people of who the men and women behind the levers of power really were! The neoconservatives, as they call themselves, came from relative obscurity into control of the world's most ferocious fighting force ever assembled. These people were no "compassionate conservatives," they were hardcore Machiavellians, intent on deceiving the public and taking over the globe! These "conservatives" were actually leftist Trotsky-ites, as taught by U. of Chicago political science professor Leo Strauss. From the father of neoconservatism, Irving Kristol, on down- these men (like tyrants throughout the ages) believe the public too petty and ignorant to govern themselves, and that the preservation of the state be the utmost priority. Congressman Paul reads the very words of neo-con foreign policy and security specialist Michael Ledeen; a megalomaniacal narcissist of epic proportions. The vast majority of senior Bush administration officials were students of this sick, twisted logic. It's a wonder that they ever relinquished power; or have they?
Despite his principled stand for conservative causes throughout the years, why is it that Mark Levin, Michael Medved, Laura Ingraham, Hugh Hewitt, etc. refuse to even acknowledge Congressman Ron Paul? I believe it has something to do with this bold speech on the floor of the house. Media personalities who never spent time working for the GOP machine in DC express gratitude and appreciation for Ron Paul. But the many hosts empowered virtually overnight after 9/11, to espouse neoconservative ideas, all come from the DC establishment; CNP, Brookings, Bradley, AEI.. Only a miniscule percentage of Americans would follow such psychopaths, if they were aware of their true philosophy. So take a listen as Dr. Paul lays out the truth about the neo-conservatives. You'll never view them quite the same. Video by YouTube User: libertyeconomics.

Flashback to the year 2000, as Ron Paul addresses the House of Representatives, foreseeing the times we are currently living through. Let there be no doubt that no single statesman has been as dedicated to the truth, and to the American republic, than Dr. Paul. Well in advance of 9/11, the Patriot Act, and Homeland Security, the Congressman spoke (no doubt to a virtually empty gallery) of the threat posed by hate-fueled extremists, who would seek to strike this country in retaliation to American bombs, occupation, and US government support of oppressive dictatorships. He foresaw the state's response to such threats- which have led to a destruction of our civil liberties.
Long before, 'No Child Left Behind,' Medicare Part D, and Obamacare, he foretold the failure of the federal bureaucracy to maintain quality, affordable health-care and education without utterly breaking the bank! Years before the financial crisis, TARP, and the Federal Reserve's Quantitative Easing, Ron Paul lamented the corporatism that had grown up around big government. He predicted the housing bubble, and Wall Street's derivative bomb that had already begun during the wild speculation of the 90's. Accepting the principle of welfare for the poor prepared the way for bailing out the rich, empowering the corporations closest to the government. A decade ago, when few concerned themselves with the loss of US sovereignty, Congressman Paul warned of the framework for world government: the World Bank, the IMF, and the World Trade Organization.
The two-hour house floor speech (which can be read in its entirety here) finely encapsulates the issues and concerns Dr. Paul has spent a lifetime educating and informing about. The speech, which was broadcast on C-Span, spanned two days: January 31, 2000 and February 2, 2000- which I edited together for ease of listening.
