Ron Paul

Fecha de nacimiento: 20. Agosto 1935

Ronald Ernest "Ron" Paul es un médico y político estadounidense, miembro del Partido Republicano, exrepresentante por el decimocuarto distrito de Texas en la Cámara de Representantes del Congreso de los Estados Unidos. Reside en Lake Jackson, ciudad del mismo estado. Formó parte del Comité de Asuntos Exteriores, el Comité Económico Mixto, el Comité de Servicios Financieros, y fue presidente del Subcomité de Política Monetaria Interior, donde ha sido un crítico de las actuales políticas exteriores y monetarias estadounidenses, abogando por la auditoría y disolución de la Reserva Federal.

Paul se graduó en el Gettysburg College y en la Universidad Duke, donde consiguió su título en medicina. Sirvió como cirujano de vuelo en la Fuerza Aérea de los Estados Unidos desde 1963 hasta 1968, durante la Guerra de Vietnam. Trabajó como médico obstetra y ginecólogo en los años sesenta y setenta, atendiendo más de 4.000 partos, antes de entrar en la política en 1976.

Es el fundador del grupo de presión Campaign for Liberty y sus ideas han sido expresadas en numerosos artículos y libros publicados, incluyendo Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom , End the Fed , The Revolution: A Manifesto , Pillars of Prosperity , A Foreign Policy of Freedom: Peace, Commerce, and Honest Friendship , y The Case for Gold . De acuerdo con Keith Poole, un politólogo de la Universidad de Georgia, Paul tiene el registro de votos más conservador que ningún otro miembro del Congreso desde 1937.[1]​ Su hijo Rand Paul fue elegido para el Senado de los Estados Unidos por Kentucky en 2011, siendo la primera vez que coinciden en el congreso un padre y un hijo.[2]​

Ha sido llamado el "padrino intelectual" del Tea Party.[3]​[4]​ Ha conseguido notoriedad por sus posiciones libertarias en muchos temas políticos, chocando a menudo con los dirigentes de los partidos republicano y demócrata. Paul ha postulado tres veces para la Presidencia de los Estados Unidos, primero en 1988 como candidato del Partido Libertario y de nuevo en 2008 y 2012 como republicano. En diciembre de 2010, Ron Paul, partidario de eliminar el banco central, fue nombrado presidente del comité que controla la Reserva Federal.[5]​ En mayo de 2011, Paul anunció oficialmente que se postularía a la presidencia una vez más como candidato del partido republicano en el año 2012.[6]​ El 13 de julio de 2011 anunció que no buscará la reelección al congreso en el 2012 para concentrarse en su campaña a la presidencia.[7]​ Wikipedia

„La libertad no se define por la seguridad. La libertad se define por la capacidad de los ciudadanos de vivir sin la interferencia del gobierno. El gobierno no puede crear un mundo sin riesgos, ni desearíamos realmente vivir en un lugar tan ficticio. Solo una sociedad totalitaria reclamaría la seguridad absoluta como un ideal digno, porque requeriría un control estatal total sobre la vida de sus ciudadanos.“

—  Ron Paul

Original: «Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens’ lives».

„A grand absurdity, a great deception, a delusion of momentous proportions based on preposterous notions and on ideas whose time should never have come. Simplicity, grossly distorted and complicated. Insanity, passed off as logic. Grandiose schemes built on falsehoods with the morality of Ponzi and Madoff. Evil described as virtue. Ignorance pawned off as wisdom. Destruction and impoverishment in the name of humanitarianism. Violence, the tool of change. Preventive wars used as a road to peace. Tolerance delivered by government guns. Reactionary views in the guise of progress. An empire replacing the republic. Slavery sold as liberty. Excellence and virtue traded for mediocrity. Socialism to save capitalism. A government out of control, unrestrained by the constitution, the rule of law or morality. Bickering over petty politics as we descend into chaos.“

—  Ron Paul

Is this reality or just a bad dream? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdXh6ASMfpc (19 May 2009)
2000s, 2006-2009
Contexto: The title to my special order tonight is 'Current Conditions or Just a Bad Dream'.
Could it all be a bad dream or a nightmare? Is it my imagination or have we lost our minds? It's surreal, it's just not believable. A grand absurdity, a great deception, a delusion of momentous proportions based on preposterous notions and on ideas whose time should never have come. Simplicity, grossly distorted and complicated. Insanity, passed off as logic. Grandiose schemes built on falsehoods with the morality of Ponzi and Madoff. Evil described as virtue. Ignorance pawned off as wisdom. Destruction and impoverishment in the name of humanitarianism. Violence, the tool of change. Preventive wars used as a road to peace. Tolerance delivered by government guns. Reactionary views in the guise of progress. An empire replacing the republic. Slavery sold as liberty. Excellence and virtue traded for mediocrity. Socialism to save capitalism. A government out of control, unrestrained by the constitution, the rule of law or morality. Bickering over petty politics as we descend into chaos. The philosophy that destroys us is not even defined.
We have broken from reality a psychotic nation. Ignorance with a pretense of knowledge replacing wisdom. Money does not grow on trees, nor does prosperity come from a government printing press or escalating deficits. We are now in the midst of unlimited spending of the people's money. Exorbitant taxation, deficits of trillions of dollars spent on a failed welfare-warfare system. An epidemic of cronyism. Unlimited supplies of paper money equated with wealth. A central bank that deliberately destroys the value of the currency in secrecy, without restraint, without nary a whimper, yet cheered on by the pseudo-capitalists of Wall Street, the military-industrial complex, and Detroit.
We police our world empire with troops on 700 bases and in 130 countries around the world. A dangerous war now spreads throughout the Middle East and Central Asia. Thousands of innocent people being killed as we become known as the torturers of the 21st century. We assume that by keeping the already known torture pictures from the public's eye, we will be remembered only as a generous and good people. If our enemies want to attack us only because we are free and rich, proof of torture would be irrelevant. The sad part of all this is that we have forgotten what made America great, good and prosperous. We need to quickly refresh our memories and once again reinvigorate our love, understanding, and confidence in liberty. The status quo cannot be maintained considering the current conditions. Violence and lost liberty will result without some revolutionary thinking. We must escape from the madness of crowds now gathering.
The good news is that reversal is achievable through peaceful and intellectual means, and fortunately the number of those who care are growing exponentially. Of course it could all be a bad dream, a nightmare, and that I'm seriously mistaken, overreacting, and that my worries are unfounded. I hope so. But just in case, we ought to prepare ourselves for revolutionary changes in the not-too-distant future.
I yield back the balance of my time.

„We can think back no further than July of 1996, when a plane carrying several hundred people suddenly and mysteriously crashed off the coast of Long Island. Within days, Congress had passed emergency legislation calling for costly new security measures, including a controversial “screening” method which calls for airlines to arbitrarily detain passengers just because the person meets certain criteria which border on racist and xenophobic.“

—  Ron Paul

Emotion should never dictate policy https://web.archive.org/web/20120119215614/http://www.ronpaularchive.com/1998/01/emotion-should-never-dictate-policy/ (January 12, 1998).
Press conference regarding the impeachment of President Clinton, 1998.
1990s
Contexto: In the emotion of the moment, people often say and do reckless things. For the individual, that can have deep ramifications. But when it is a single individual acting unreasonably in the throes of emotion in the face of sorrow, then the consequences are borne by only that person and his family. But when the government behaves recklessly in response to a tragedy, the consequences can be felt by everyone. This is especially true when politicians get in on the act. We can think back no further than July of 1996, when a plane carrying several hundred people suddenly and mysteriously crashed off the coast of Long Island. Within days, Congress had passed emergency legislation calling for costly new security measures, including a controversial “screening” method which calls for airlines to arbitrarily detain passengers just because the person meets certain criteria which border on racist and xenophobic.

„The real isolationists are those who choose to use force overseas to promote democracy, rather than seek change through diplomacy, engagement, and by setting a positive example“

—  Ron Paul

"I advocate the same foreign policy the Founding Fathers would", open letter to the Union Leader http://www.unionleader.com/article.aspx?articleId=cc287b0f-941c-4b07-88e9-9e992810f700,Union Leader (2007)
2000s, 2006-2009
Contexto: It is not we non-interventionists who are isolationists. The real isolationists are those who impose sanctions and embargoes on countries and peoples across the globe because they disagree with the internal and foreign policies of their leaders. The real isolationists are those who choose to use force overseas to promote democracy, rather than seek change through diplomacy, engagement, and by setting a positive example.

„War is not popular. People get killed, and body bags end up coming back.“

—  Ron Paul, libro A Foreign Policy of Freedom: Peace, Commerce, and Honest Friendship

A Foreign Policy of Freedom: Peace, Commerce, and Honest Friendship, p. 206.
Contexto: War is not popular. It may seem popular in the short run, when there appears to be an immediate victory and everyone is gloating but war is not popular. War is not popular. People get killed, and body bags end up coming back. War is very unpopular, and it is not the politically smart thing to do.

„In a free-market economy, the consumer is king: labor unions don't run things, business people don't run things, bankers don't run things, politicians don't run things, but the success of a business depends on how people spend their money.“

„We have depended on government for so much for so long that we as people have become less vigilant of our liberties.“

—  Ron Paul

1990s
Contexto: We have depended on government for so much for so long that we as people have become less vigilant of our liberties. As long as the government provides largesse for the majority, the special interest lobbyists will succeed in continuing the redistribution of welfare programs that occupies most of Congress's legislative time.

Speech in the House of Representatives, September 17, 1997

„The racist effects of Davis-Bacon are no mere coincidence. In fact, many original supporters of Davis-Bacon, such as Representative Clayton Allgood, bragged about supporting Davis-Bacon as a means of keeping cheap colored labor out of the construction industry.“

—  Ron Paul

Repeal Of The Davis-Bacon Law https://web.archive.org/web/20120119214747/http://www.ronpaularchive.com/1997/10/repeal-of-the-davis-bacon-law/ (23 October 1997).
1990s
Contexto: Because most minority-owned construction firms are small companies, Davis-Bacon keeps minority-owned firms from competing for Federal construction contracts. The resulting disparities in employment create a demand for affirmative action, another ill-suited and ill-advised Big Government program. The racist effects of Davis-Bacon are no mere coincidence. In fact, many original supporters of Davis-Bacon, such as Representative Clayton Allgood, bragged about supporting Davis-Bacon as a means of keeping cheap colored labor out of the construction industry.

„I didn't write them, I didn't read them at the time, and I disavow them.“

2010s
Contexto: Paul: I didn't write them, I disavow them...
Q: So you read them, but didn't do anything.
Paul: I never read that stuff. I was probably aware of it ten years after it was written... it's going on twenty years that people have pestered me about this.
Q: Well, wouldn't you say it's a legitimate question?
Paul: When you get the answer, it's legitimate that you sorta take the answer I give. You know what the answer is? "I didn't write them, I didn't read them at the time, and I disavow them."

„One of the worst aspects of the census is its focus on classifying people by race. When government tells us it wants information to help any given group, it assumes every individual who shares certain physical characteristics has the same interests, or wants the same things from government. This is an inherently racist and offensive assumption. The census, like so many federal policies and programs, inflames racism by encouraging Americans to see themselves as members of racial groups fighting each other for a share of the federal pie.“

—  Ron Paul

None of Your Business! https://web.archive.org/web/20120127122559/http://www.ronpaularchive.com/2004/07/none-of-your-business (12 July 2004).
2000s, 2001-2005
Contexto: I introduced an amendment last week that would have eliminated funds for this intrusive survey in a spending bill, explaining on the House floor that perhaps the American people dont appreciate being threatened by Big Brother. The amendment was met by either indifference or hostility, as most members of Congress either dont care about or actively support government snooping into the private affairs of citizens. One of the worst aspects of the census is its focus on classifying people by race. When government tells us it wants information to help any given group, it assumes every individual who shares certain physical characteristics has the same interests, or wants the same things from government.
