Quotes from Ron Paul’s: Freedom Under Siege

From his introduction to Freedom Under Siege: The U.S. Constitution After 200 Years:

  • America is no longer a bastion of freedom, prevailing ideology, grounded in economic ignorance and careless disregard for individual liberty, is nurtured by a multitude of self-serving, power-seeking politicians spouting platitudes of compassion for the poor who are created by their own philosophy. Reelection is paramount in the minds of most of those who represent us, while freedom and constitutional restraint of power are considered old-fashioned and unwise.
  • Samuel Adams, at the time of the Constitutional Convention, accurately warned: “Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt.”
  • Both liberals and conservatives give lip service to limited government ideas, but only to serve some special view of government  that they might endorse, rather than to promote consistently the principles of freedom.
  • The latter part of the twentieth century has permitted the acceptance of the
    idea that “society” owes everyone a living.
  • Political leaders today are more interested in opinion polls than they are in the
    Constitution and freedom principles.
  • Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson revolutionized foreign policy,
    dramatically changing our traditional belief in neutrality to one of perpetual meddling in the affairs of every nation throughout the world.
  • Living for immediate material benefits has replaced concern for long-term
    freedom principles necessary to guarantee peace and prosperity for the next
    generation.
