Ron Paul: “We now live in a police state”…

Former congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul says our entire system has been “based on lies and ignorance.”

“If Americans were honest with themselves they would acknowledge that the Republic is no more. We now live in a police state. If we do not recognize and resist this development, freedom and prosperity for all Americans will continue to deteriorate. All liberties in America today are under siege.

It didn’t happen overnight. It took many years of neglect for our liberties to be given away so casually for a promise of security from the politicians. The tragic part is that the more security was promised — physical and economic — the less liberty was protected.

With cradle-to-grave welfare protecting all citizens from any mistakes and a perpetual global war on terrorism, which a majority of Americans were convinced was absolutely necessary for our survival, our security and prosperity has been sacrificed.

It was all based on lies and ignorance. Many came to believe that their best interests were served by giving up a little freedom now and then to gain a better life.”

  1. Well, if we aren’t there already, we’re certainly perched on the edge of the cliff.

    I have a rather unrelenting optimism about the whole thing. Completely irrational, doesn’t match anything we’re seeing on the ground, but boy is it persistent. All will be well somehow 😉

  2. I think there are all these parallels: Spiritual adultery/ human adultery. Spiritual abortions/ human abortions. Spiritual police state–Isaiah 25:7 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations. (as the whole world lies in evil 1 John5)//physical police state.

    On earth as it is in heaven is being compressed. Evil above, evil below. Righteousness above/righteousness below.

    Is there a scientific thing that can explain or a video to show what happens when two elements are compressed together? Is there an explosion of power? If one element is weaker than the other (the earth), what happens? I believe we are that generation that will see it in real time!

    The big question is: Can the believer live (LIVE) in the prison he/she is in, till HE comes? Matthew 10:39!!

    Peace!

  3. Reblogged this on Capt Jills Journeys and commented:
    Yes, Ron Paul is right about this (as he was about so many other things). Most Americans refuse to open their eyes to this truth (or about the rest of them). They seem to be either just slogging through the daily grind with no time to think or anything else. Or they’re completely convinced that the OTHER mainstream political party is the cause of all the problems in the world. Truth is that BOTH the mainstream political parties are in reality the SAME and they ARE the cause of most of Americas problems. Try getting people to see the truth to that, keep on banging your head against the wall.
    Yes, we ARE living in a police state! Thanks to Ron Paul for all his work, from another head-banger. 😦
