Champion of liberty and defender of freedom, former Congressman Dr. Ron Paul, went on FOX this week to speak on the current status of the smoke and mirrors being employed by the Trump admin in their hollow claims of repealing Obamacare. Staying true to his libertarian roots, Paul transcended the two-party shell of the show and used his time to make a powerful point — both parties are the same and it’s time for a revolution.

Just prior to Ron Paul coming on to the show, the host had on Paul’s son, Rand, who noted how hypocritical the Republican party is and how they all seemingly lied to their constituencies — promising them change, they knew they would never fight for.

After the retired doctor and Congressman agreed with his son, he went on to note that ‘the system’ is set up in such a way that makes it next to impossible to reverse government overreach. Very few people inside government, as Ron Paul explains, conduct their policy based on principles.

Surprisingly, the host chimed in and said that the term ‘Republican principles’ is increasingly becoming an oxymoron. However, the same goes for Democrats.

In Washington, the only part that ‘wins’ is war. Republicans are for big government, if with war. Democrats are for war, if with big government.

Breaking out of the healthcare theme of the show, Paul then goes on to blast both parties for being the same in almost every light.

“They both believe in government medicine, the spending in these programs. They believe in the same foreign policy. They believe in the same monetary policy. They believe in the welfare system, too. So it’s very bipartisan and they pretend there is this big difference,” Paul said.

“They say that all we have to do is put the Republicans in….and they’ll go back to the Constitution,” Paul said, explaining how the two-party system dupes Americans into throwing out old party every four years thinking the new one will be different. But, as Paul noted, “That’s a fallacy.”

After exposing the two-party system using the mainstream media, Paul went on to provide an actual solution to the problem of the American police and warfare state — Revolt.

“I think we need to have a real revolution someday and revolt against the type of system that we’ve had. And I don’t think it’s just this administration and the last one, I think it’s happened for a hundred years and most people realize we just didn’t get here overnight,” Paul said.

After going off on the structure of the American political system and how it is deliberately designed to force dependence, the FOX panel came on to maintain the Republican talking points.

However, immediately after, the former Congressman chimed back in, saying, “Prepare for the bankruptcy.” 

Paul explains how the reckless spending of every administration is leading to a point that will get rid of government dependency — but it will not be pretty. When the government goes broke and can no longer support the millions of people who’ve become dependent on its programs, chaos ensues.

Paul proposes a very simple solution toward the end of the video that would undoubtedly shift the tide — “legalize liberty.”

However, as Paul points out, while Libertarians allow for voluntary socialism under their philosophy “but a socialist never permits voluntary freedom.”

It will take a revolution.

While watching the video below, it becomes entirely clear as to why Paul, who has been out of government for years, is still relevant in the political spectrum, while Sanders, Obama, Mitt Romney, the Bush’s, etc. have all but faded out entirely. Ron Paul was never a puppet and never compromised his principles for votes.

    America is too fat for a revolution. They won’t get off the couch until someone takes their Doritos and Netflix away.

    • RJ O’Guillory

      …dude! Did you see the investigative study some group did on Doritos, Gold Fish, corn chips etc? They found Glyphosate…(Round-up weed killer)…in all of these products. Allegedly, – .1 parts-per-billion is supposed to give you cancer. Doritos and Gold Fish…all corn-based chips and snacks had like 695 parts-per-billion! They have already made millions of us ill through what we eat. They will continue to rape us of whatever wealth we have left, through medicine and our desire to live. Then they will get their desired result of the baby-boomer generation dying off 15-20 years earlier than they would have, given our advancements in health care. I’m 57…retired and earned my living teaching people how to run fast service restaurants. Soda was like water to me…until about five years ago, I simply quit drinking it, and feel much better. Now I have a similar motivation for giving up the chips! Switching to organic dill pickles! Ha!

        Legalizing marijuana is another way to dull the sheep.

        • RJ O’Guillory

          no…not really. Not anymore than the prescription-meds, booze and other mind-altering substances people have used through time to deal with heartache and hurt…using it to heal, kill themselves or help them to enjoy the lives they are enduring. I know many, many highly motivated and successful people…(including myself)…who smoked marijuana our entire adult lives. I worked all over the world, and was usually able to smoke in almost every country I traveled to, including The US. I grew up in a family of corrupt law enforcement, so the illegality of it was always obviously corrupt, so I didn’t follow that law. When I retired from US DoD after a 25 year career, as the winner of a Federal Whistle Blower Case, I discovered I’d been genetically epileptic and enduring unobserved seizures during my lifetime. It seems that the marijuana I’d used socially, was having a medicinal effect as well, thus helping me to climb Mt. Fuji, deploy to Bosnia and Hungary, receive a tour of Air Force One..and all kinds of great adventure. Now I am retired since driving off a 200 foot cliff at 70mph, and suffering through several hundred grande-Mal seizures in about a five year period. With the marijuana-prescription, the seizures have stopped. Hopefully, when my published childhood memoir is adapted to film, you will realize that I am not a dullard, or a sheep! Ha! Nor are many others who use and enjoy marijuana. Take care…

    I learned much from Dr. Paul in my youth; he’s a true statesman. However, his ‘revolution’ shtick is growing old; surely he knows his civics as well as economics.

    To oversimplify a bit: We The People are the top authority *over* the Constitution, by which we created, defined, and limited our servant government. When servants of a sovereign are revolting (violating the law they are hired to obey), that sovereign does not “revolt” also! How stupid would that be?

    No; a true sovereign enforces that law. Dr. Paul does know civics, but he seems to be in a rut from 40+ years of ‘revolution’-speak. That would fit just fine in the Ukraine, Mexico, or Egypt. But not here. In America, where We The People are *over* the supreme Law of the Land and all governments are *under* that law, when our servants hijack the house, cars and checking accounts…it’s time for law enforcement.

    And that must be lawful in itself; must be legitimate. We The People stipulate in the Constitution exactly how to do it, and TACTICAL CIVICS™ is the result. Stop sitting on your butt and making cynical remarks; if you are worthy of the name ‘American’, do what Ben Franklin said we have to do: *keep* this republic. http://TacticalCivics.us

    • Ronnie Wrenchbiscuit

      I see the “American Dream” is alive and well ! So you think you are a member of “We The People”? If you are a member of the proletariat then you most certainly are not! And the people you think are representing you are actually representing the real “We The People”. And these are the people who own the banks, the multi-national corporations, and who control the entire industrial military complex. Now, you are quite naive to think that you can weaponize a paper tiger like the Constitution of the United States. The same people who own you also own the police and the armed forces. Your little piece of paper, along with your worthless vote isn’t going to change a thing. There is a reason why revolutions are bloody, and you apparently haven’t figured that out yet. People in power are addicted to power, and they are consumed by it. They aren’t going to give up anything without a fight. Tactical Civics is about as useful to the peasantry as a wet book of matches. Dream On dreamer !

      • rhodaunit

        No need to be jerk, the point is correct. We just need enough people to realize it, that includes the police, military and vets. I don’t think he said there wouldn’t be blood shed either. And you have to start some where.

        • RJ O’Guillory

          I had posted this on The White House Website during The Obama Administration as a petition…but surprise, surprise, surprise…they never let it get any votes, and then I think it was removed. As a 20 year, Federally Protected Whistle Blower, I know how corrupt our government is. Enjoy.
          ———————————————————————————————
          July 6, 2016 – Based upon the obvious subversion of the rule of law within the United States, as displayed through the corrupt activities of the President of The United States, The Attorney General of The Untied States and The Director of The FBI…as well as the corruption that is obvious within all US Government Entities…We The People are demanding the following.

          THE NATIONAL GALLOWS for AMERICAN VALUES PROJECT

          1. – I presume you are intimately familiar with the fascist corruption, criminal activity, murder and treason that is committed on a daily basis by our corrupt government. I am writing to determine your level of interest in helping to sponsor a new, public, self-funded project… (public-financing provided by online sites such as “gofundme”…”indigeo”, etc. etc.).
          ———————————————————————————–
          2. – This project will be designed to root out corruption and treason within our government, as well as battling against the corrupt nature of the government / corporate / media fascism that has taken root within our Constitutional Republic.
          ———————————————————————————-
          3. – Phase 1

          3a) – We are proposing the establishment of a new National Memorial Project. The memorial will be built at Ground Zero 911 and will be constructed of thermite-tainted steel from the three buildings that our treasonous government sponsored…or allowed to be imploded on 9-11-2001.

          3b) – The title of our new National Monument will be….The National Gallows for American Values…a 47 story tall…(fully functioning gallows)…with red-hot, liquid steel running through the site and steam rising from the grounds 24 / 7 for eternity. The location of the National Gallows will be centrally situated in NYC in order to give millions of Americans the opportunity to personally watch as their previously treasonous political leadership… convicted and sentenced to hang for treason…are executed.

          3c) – This is the site where we will hang dozens of convicted traitors at one time…giving millions of furious, free Americans a chance to watch the public execution of convicted, corrupt traitors…(perhaps, even…while throwing rotten fruit, feces and garbage at the scum who have violated our Constitution and their oath). While these traitors slowly choke to death, these treasonous entities such as corrupt police forces and their leadership…those intelligence agencies who implemented and activated 911…as well as those who started these treasonous, illegal wars and torture programs…and those who support and defend The Patriot Act, well…as these treasonous bastards slowly choke to death… perhaps they will understand what true liberty and freedom really feel like.
          ——————————————————————————-
          4. – Phase 2

          4a) – While fund-raising for the construction of…The National Gallows…and accomplishing the tangible work of acquiring land, building permits and all those government-related-idiocies that modern America requires, The National Gallows Project will also be raising funds…with the wide-ranging goals of financing public relations campaigns, political groups and both investigative and historic research teams. The ultimate goal of these Investigative and Research teams will be to uncover evidence of treason, war crimes and crimes against humanity ..(going back fifty years…for those still alive)…and to prosecute all those involved in the purposeful destruction of our revered Constitutional Republic.

          4b) – The purpose of the fully-functioning, National Gallows Memorial will be to serve as a reminder to those in government who act to steal, repress…or dilute our Constitutional Protections and Liberties. This would include all those who broke their oath to defend The Constitution…those who have engaged in war-crimes or the theft of other people’s natural resources under the ruse of…”fighting terrorism”…as well as other crimes against humanity.
          ——————————————————————————
          5. – Phase 3

          5a) – While The National Gallows will serve as the execution location for all those found to have engaged in treasonous conduct over the past fifty years…we are also interested in acquiring land in each of the fifty states in order to build smaller replicas of The National Gallows. Whereas we plan on being able to hang dozens of traitors simultaneously at The National Gallows in NYC…we would like to have local replicas available for those residents of communities that are being overrun with corrupt government traitors. For example…the people of Utah may wish to charge every member of The NSA who works in Utah for violations of their 4th amendment rights…they may want to convict them for treason and then hang them.

          5b) – Another example….citizens all across the country…those who still believe in the Constitution may want to charge, convict and hang any of their…”representatives”…. or …”law enforcement”. They may especially want to go after those in corrupt media and government controlled media who have lied, propagandized and openly supported the violation of the people’s rights…such as voting for Constitutional Abortions like the Patriot Act…or infringing upon 1st or 2nd Amendment rights by inferring citizens who express negative opinions of government or law enforcement are …”terrorists. The people of America may wish to charge and convict such “leadership” for treason.

          5c) – So….we are wondering if you’d like to be a part of this process…and / or if you know of any land available that could be donated or sold to our cause? Would you be willing to propose legislation supporting The National Gallows Project…and the concept of Charge / Conviction / Hanging of all those who violate our Constitution and our personal, civil rights? Even corrupt, government, business and media officials and those hoping to achieve higher office…would you vote to convict and hang those type of people?

          5d) – Would you support the charging, conviction and execution of all military and political leadership who participated in the illegal wars of the past fifty years…just as they did after WWII in Nuremberg? Would you support charging the military and political leadership with treason for Vietnam, Panama, Iraq- 1, 2 or 3…Libya, Yemen, 911…Waco…Ruby Ridge…etc., etc. etc.?
          ——————————————————————————
          – Please let us know of your position on this vitally important subject…as we’d like to know if you are a supporter of The Constitution…or an enemy of the American People, Freedom and Liberty the world over?

          Yes, the American colonists who fought under George Washington didn’t have a flag, or a country, or a defined set of principles for which they were fighting until July 4th 1776 when representatives from the 13 colonies voted for and signed the Declaration of Independence at the Continental Congress in Philadelphia. That Declaration is still THE founding document of the united states of America.

    • lawmanjed

      Legitimate…? See the 2nd Amendment: “A well regulated militia being necessary for the security of a free state…”. You’re talking law enFORCEment against traitorous usurpers of our Constitution, violators of our Bill of Rights. That will require force, just like any other enforcement of the law. Membership in the militia is an automatic Constitutional right and duty of each and every American national, be it organized state militia or unorganized private militia, it is your inherent right as an American to uphold and defend your rights and the rights of your fellow countrymen with deadly force if necessary. The fact is Jefferson said we would need a revolution or similar approximately every 50 years, to maintain the political health of the republic, to remind the government “servants” that they are indeed servants, not masters. We are sadly long over due.
      However, one important point: A wise man once told me, “Anyone can start a Revolution, it’s what you do once you win, that matters. How could you actually make things any better? That is what you must discover and master, or else it will be meet-the-new-boss-same-as-the-old-boss, like the French Revolution or Lenin’s Communist Revolution”

  • Robert Ferguson

    A revolution will only bring you back where you started

    • lawmanjed

      Great then. Back where we started, at the principles laid out in the Declaration of Independence. Sounds about right.

  • LowellST13

    I am in firm agreement with Ron Paul, the corrupt one party two sided coin of government is corrupt on both sides. I have been telling this to people for years, only a very few understand it. More are starting to, though so praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition. The only difference between the false two parties is the speed at which they want to usurp liberty and destroy the freedom’s we used to have. Democommunists are slightly faster than the republisocialists….I despise them both.

    • RJ O’Guillory

      …yes, while their alleged belief systems may seem to be different, both parties answer to the same gods… money, power, ego, control and domination. I’m not much of a religious person, but I recognize spirituality. There isn’t a splinter of humanity or spirituality in any of these leaders…past or present. Even if Trump is any of those things…when the system is ready…they will simply run over him on their way to their evil objectives. The only thing that will stop that…is mass-disobedience and a willingness to fight and inflict harm on those who wish to take your liberty…all in self-defense of yourself and your freedoms.

    Can cry about the rising cost of healthcare all we want. Until these monopolies that destroy our food and water while feeding us maintenance drugs are addressed it will continue to spiral out of control. It’s all connected.

  • Zaphod Braden

    (1) TAKE AWAY Congress’s private care, put them on the same plan as the PEOPLE get.
    (2) Return all healthcare to nonprofit status.
    (3) Make all providers post their prices. All prices must be the same for insured & not.
    (4) Make the drug companies give Medicare, Medicaid, Americans the same prices they charge overseas.
    (5) Make healthcare fraud a Capital crime. Complete forfieture of ALL assets.

    Did you know that before 1973 it was illegal in the US to profit off of health care. The Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973 passed by Nixon changed everything.
    Then TAKE AWAY Congress’ pension plan & put them on Social Security, which they will then IMMEDIATELY fix.

    • lawmanjed

      Well, you’re just all about big-gov’t controls aren’t you? You either a liar too or you’re simply misinformed because healthcare has never been a strictly non-profit industry by law in the USA, and that is why we used to have the best healthcare system in the world, until recently socialists asserted themselves as masters of us all. Won’t take long for us fat lazy super-awesome (gun-crazed, btw) Muricans to wake the fart up again, and then… not good for socialist wanna-be dictators, I’ll tell ya that.
      The only point I’d agree with is Congress must be subject to the same laws they subject the rest of America to, absolutely.
