Delaware :: Ron Paul

Supporting Freedom Through Grassroots Action

About

The Blog's AuthorAs you inferred from the URL, this blog is dedicated to Ron Paul, Republican contender for the party’s endorsement for President. This blog’s author, David Armor, enjoys many different activities, including strategy games, reading textbooks, making hummus and sushi, and blogging when he finds the time. Ron Paul, however, is much more interesting. Rather than a droll attempt to explain Ron Paul to you, I will emulate nearly exactly his campaign site’s “About Ron” page right here:

Ron Paul Congressman Ron Paul is the leading advocate for freedom in our nation’s capital. As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Dr. Paul tirelessly works for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies. He is known among his congressional colleagues and his constituents for his consistent voting record. Dr. Paul never votes for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution.In the words of former Treasury Secretary William Simon, Dr. Paul is the “one exception to the Gang of 535” on Capitol Hill.

Ron PaulRon Paul was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Gettysburg College and the Duke University School of Medicine, before proudly serving as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force during the 1960s. He and his wife Carol moved to Texas in 1968, where he began his medical practice in Brazoria County. As a specialist in obstetrics/gynecology, Dr. Paul has delivered more than 4,000 babies. He and Carol, who reside in Lake Jackson, Texas, are the proud parents of five children and have 17 grandchildren.

While serving in Congress during the late 1970s and early 1980s, Dr. Paul’s limited-government ideals were not popular in Washington. In 1976, he was one of only four Republican congressmen to endorse Ronald Reagan for president.

During that time, Congressman Paul served on the House Banking committee, where he was a strong advocate for sound monetary policy and an outspoken critic of the Federal Reserve’s inflationary measures. He was an unwavering advocate of pro-life and pro-family values. Dr. Paul consistently voted to lower or abolish federal taxes, spending and regulation, and used his House seat to actively promote the return of government to its proper constitutional levels. In 1984, he voluntarily relinquished his House seat and returned to his medical practice.

Ron PaulDr. Paul returned to Congress in 1997 to represent the 14th congressional district of Texas. He presently serves on the House Committee on Financial Services and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. He continues to advocate a dramatic reduction in the size of the federal government and a return to constitutional principles.

Congressman Paul’s consistent voting record prompted one of his congressional colleagues to say, “Ron Paul personifies the Founding Fathers’ ideal of the citizen-statesman. He makes it clear that his principles will never be compromised, and they never are.” Another colleague observed, “There are few people in public life who, through thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles. Ron Paul is one of those few.”

Brief Overview of Congressman Paul’s Record:

He has never voted to raise taxes.
He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.
He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership.
He has never voted to raise congressional pay.
He has never taken a government-paid junket.
He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch.

He voted against the Patriot Act.
He voted against regulating the Internet.
He voted against the Iraq war.

He does not participate in the lucrative congressional pension program.
He returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year.

Congressman Paul introduces numerous pieces of substantive legislation each year, probably more than any single member of Congress.

  6. QUESTIONNAIRE FOR ACTIVE-DUTY AND RESERVIST MEMBERS OF ALL UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES

    I’ve sent this questionnaire to our armed forces at this particular point in time because, of all the 2008 presidential candidates we’ve gone through, you have given the most support, by far, to the campaign of U.S. Congressman, Dr. Ron Paul who has also received the most blatantly obvious disrespect and belittlement from the media, the most blatantly obvious disrespect and belittlement from his opponents and even his own party, and has been the victim of the most blatantly obvious vote theft that’s ever been witnessed thanks to the Internet. And all he’s ever done to deserve this is trudge on, virtually always alone, for the restoration of the liberty, peace, might, and prosperity of these United States. It really does not matter whom or what party election fraud is perpetrated against or in favor of. In reality, it is perpetrated against the entire electorate.

    There has been much anxiety expressed over the Internet and talk radio regarding the transformation of decommissioned military bases into civilian “internment” facilities and the construction of new ones all across the United States. At least as far back as 1994 select military personnel have received Civilian Affairs Manuals with instructions on rounding up and confining U.S. citizens to these “detention centers”; and, in the late 90’s U.S. Marines were actually being trained for this in “Operation Urban Warrior.”

    It was learned in October, 1994 that a questionnaire had begun circulation at the Twentynine Palms Marine Base in California asking Marines that, hypothetically, if martial law should ever be invoked and the Constitution suspended, would they obey unconstitutional, unlawful orders from their superiors to flush out, take captive, and/or fire upon civilians of these United States, or, in the alternative, would they remain loyal to their oaths to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution for the United States of America.

    Those who dare ask, “Just what’s going on here,” are demonized and stereotyped as unpatriotic “conspiracy mongers,” “tin foil hat wearers,” “racists,” “anti-Semites,” etc. However, these perfectly legitimate questions receive no answers. “SILENCE can only be equated with FRAUD where there is a legal or moral duty to speak, or where an INQUIRY LEFT UNANSWERED would be intentionally misleading” (emphases added) ruled the Federal Court in U.S. vs. TWEEL, 550 F. 2d 297, 299. Therefore, it is only reasonable and prudent that we civilians also question OUR military personnel concerning their allegiance to their oaths and the Constitution.

    This is of no small significance as the Constitution IS our government, and, our government IS the Constitution. Thus, anyone who violates, disregards, subverts or usurps the Constitution, or dismisses it as being obsolete and irrelevant to the present day is anti-government. There is NO provision in the Constitution for its own suspension and, therefore, there can be NO lawful implementation of “martial law” in the United States. See the following:

    “It is sometimes argued that the existence of an emergency allows the existence and operation of powers, national or state, which violate the inhibitions of the Federal Constitution. The rule is quite otherwise. NO emergency justifies the violation of any of the provisions of the United States Constitution.” (emphasis added) – 16 American Jurisprudence 2d, §71

    “Even a state of war and the declaration of secession by the people cannot suspend the Constitution or remove its protections.” (emphasis added) – HOUSTON COUNTY v MARTIN, 169 So. 13

    “The Constitution for the United States is a law for rulers and people equally in war and in peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times, and under all circumstances. No doctrine, involving more pernicious consequences, was ever invented by the wit of man than that any of its provisions can be suspended during any of the exigencies of government.” (emphases added) – EX PARTE MILLIGAN, 71 US 2

    “…Neither the legislature nor any executive or judicial officer may disregard the provisions of the Constitution in case of an emergency where the plain and unequivocal terms of the Constitution present no question of construction as to departures in emergencies.” (emphasis added) – 16 American Jurisprudence 2d, §98

    “NO ONE IS BOUND TO OBEY AN UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAW…” (emphasis added) – 16 AmericanJurisprudence 2d, §256

    Our Declaration of Independence states, that to secure our “certain unalienable Rights” :

    “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it…when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these…” United States. (emphases added)
    “…all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while the evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.”

    We, the People, of the United States of America can and shall no longer suffer the malignant evils which have been gradually, methodically, systematically and subliminally injected into the governing body of our constitutional republic and metastasizing throughout the very lifeblood of our democratic process.

    We have been inexcusably apathetic and derelict in our duty to vigilantly safeguard the authority and guarantees of our Constitution and the founding principles of our nation. Nevertheless, since we have not knowingly given our permission for the dissolution of our form of government, it is yet rightly incumbent upon us to remove the impurities we have negligently allowed to infiltrate our system. However, all lawful and peaceable attempts to do so have been met with only more insufferable evils and abuses from our own mutinous insubordinates – and they are many!

    These hirelings, or, public “servants,” were either elected or appointed by We, the People, to positions of managing and operating ONLY the specific functions of government enumerated in the Constitution. They are answerable to US – not the other way around. They have NO personal authority over us – only the responsibility to administer and execute the explicit authority of the Constitution and “laws in pursuance thereof.”

    These government employees assume their “official” status the moment they publicly swear the requisite, legally-binding oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution for the United States of America. They forfeit their “official” capacity and spontaneously vacate their office the moment they perjure their oath in one or more of the following ways:

    A) Falsely swearing it just to abide the inauguration ceremony but having no intention of upholding it
    B) Authoring, administering, executing, enforcing, promulgating, or otherwise supporting legislation,
    Executive branch mandates, Court decisions, treaties, etc., which are repugnant to the Constitution.
    C) Usurping, abrogating, infringing, subverting, ignoring, disregarding, disrespecting or otherwise violating
    the letter and spirit of the Constitution

    The numerous individuals on our government payroll who have willfully and repeatedly perjured their oaths have not just simply betrayed the Constitution, but, in doing so they have debased and weakened it which, as a result, gives aid and comfort to our enemies. That is treason and it is routinely committed with immunity and impunity – many times under the false pretense of “national security.”

    The hostility of these defectors toward the sovereignty of the United States and our Constitution qualifies them as domestic “enemy combatants.” Their ongoing use of scare tactics to keep us living in fear so that we’ll give up more and more of our rights in exchange for their “protection” qualifies them as “homegrown terrorists.” They have literally sold us out – property, production, and human “resources” – for their own personal wealth and political posturing to the soulless money monopolies diabolically dedicated to the America-destroying, hegemonic, one-world agenda of a totalitarian “New World Order.”

    These corporate money-barons not only own and control them, but they also own and control virtually the entire mainstream news media and have replaced truthful and factual journalism with propaganda, suppression, and outright lies no different than Tass and Pravda of the former Soviet Union. Working in collusion these traitors have stealthily and all but officially overthrown this constitutional republic. The most recent and “in-your-face” example of this is the sabotage and seizure of our free electoral process – the very foundation of our form of government for which you sacrifice so much. THEY’VE TAKEN AWAY OUR VOTE!!

    1. Hypothetically, would you preserve, protect and defend the Constitution for the United States of America to which you are bound by oath, in contradiction to any unlawful and unconstitutional order(s) given by superiors whom, by the very act of giving such orders, perjure their own oaths of allegiance to the Constitution, thus, betraying the government of the United States of America and spontaneously forfeiting their authority?

    2. Hypothetically, would you participate in a concerted show of force to remove, detain, and/or fire upon individuals employed in governmental positions whom have perjured their oaths of allegiance to the Constitution, thus, betraying the government of the United States of America, spontaneously forfeiting their authority, and, nevertheless, refuse to abdicate?

    YES__ NO__

    4. Whether you answered “YES” or “NO” to questions #2 or #3 above would you, hypothetically, assist in maintaining public order in and around the venues at which a civilian chain-of-command is democratically established for the purpose of restoring the full authority of the Constitution in the governmental machinery of the United States?
