Ron Paul: “The real problem is that the American people have been too submissive”

“[W]e have to realize that the real problem is that the American people have been too submissive. We have been too submissive. It has been going on for a long time. …

“[T]he bill that I have introduced … is very simple. It is one paragraph long. It removes the immunity from anybody in the Federal government that does anything that you or I can’t do.

“If you can’t grope another person and if you can’t X-ray people and endanger them with possible X-rays, [and] you can’t take nude photographs of individuals, why do we allow the government to do it?

“We would go to jail. He would be immediately arrested, if an individual citizen went up and did these things, and yet we just sit there and calmly say, ‘oh, they are making us safe.’

“And besides, the argument from the executive branch is that when you buy a ticket, you have sacrificed your rights and it is the duty of the government to make us safe.

“That isn’t the case. You never have to sacrifice your rights. The duty of the government is to protect our rights, not to use them and do what they have been doing to us.”

  1. MY 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS WERE TAKEN FROM ME ON THE LAST WEEK OF JUNE 2010 AND IM STILL PISSED ABOUT THAT BRO. SO IF THE PUBLIC GETS MAD AT THE GOV. THEN THEY PROBABLY HAVE THE RIGHTS. THIS IS LIKE STANDING AT A BONFIRE THROWING WOOD INTO THE FIRE FOR ME. WHEN THE U.S. GOV WANTS TO CHANGE POLITICS THEY WILL QUIT ABUSING POWER UNTIL THEN I FIGURE I WILL GO ALONG FOR THE RIDE AND SAVE AS MANY GOOD PEOPLE AS I CAN WHEN THE DEAL GOES DOWN. THE GOV NEEDS SOME HELP SO I HAVE GIVEN 37 YRS OF IT. TO WHAT AVAIL?
