IS NO CONSTITUTION
DECLARES MR. CONSTITUTION IN HIS FAREWELL ADDRESS
Reading Ron Paul's discourse
from the House floor was informative on numerous levels. He repeatedly declared that
we must return to the Constitution as the legal mechanism for restoring
freedom and liberty. Without any definition or detail, RP also affirms that virtue and
morality in the People are fundamental prerequisites for the return of freedom and
liberty. As stirring as his words might seem, RPs departing speech is riddled with
contradictions. One must ask
Are the virtue and morality
of an unrestricted pro-abortionist (785,000
babies murdered in 2009) the same as someone who holds to the sanctity of life (4D scans
show fetuses yawn in the womb)?
Are the virtue and morality
of a parasitic welfare socialist the same as a self supporting, small business owner?
Are the virtue and morality
of a neocon-neolib warmonger the same as a peaceful follower of the non-aggression
there be any fellowship between darkness and light?
Found about midway into his
speech is this excerpt:
Government Monopoly over Initiating Violence
behavior is one thing, but legalizing a government monopoly for initiating aggression can
only lead to exhausting liberty associated with chaos, anger and the breakdown of civil
society. Permitting such authority and expecting saintly behavior from the bureaucrats and
the politicians is a pipe dream. We now have a standing army of armed bureaucrats in the
TSA, CIA, FBI, Fish and Wildlife, FEMA, IRS, Corp of Engineers, etc. numbering over
100,000. Citizens are guilty until proven innocent in the unconstitutional
about 2/3s into his speech is this excerpt.
Government Excesses vs. a Virtuous Moral People
Our Constitution, which
was intended to limit government power and abuse, has failed. The Founders warned that
a free society depends on a virtuous and moral people. The current crisis reflects that
their concerns were justified.
If the Constitution is not
being used in the courts or the Constitution has failed, how in the world can the
Constitution be any part of the solution?!
This writer had been a fan of
RP since the 1980's. He is light years better and less malignant than any other elected
official in the past 50 years. Nevertheless, as an elected member of Congress he has been
a party to this debacle for decades.
If RP believed that the system was corrupt and evil, he should have taken all the
statutory steps available to fix the problems. He did none. Given the countless criminal acts of the US FedGov
while in Congress, his oath of office compelled him to file federal criminal
complaints or be subject to misprision
of a felony or misprision
of treason. RP has been negligent in his fiduciary responsibilities without cause. If
he was unwilling to use the available statutory tools, RP should have left Congress years
ago or shut the hell up.
There is one sentence from
his farewell address worthy of additional scrutiny.
Citizens are guilty
until proven innocent in the unconstitutional administrative courts.

For those who have seriously

Authority - is required reading.
statement is more apropos today than when he wrote it.
Inasmuch as the
Constitution was never signed, nor agreed to, by anybody, as a contract, and therefore
never bound anybody, and is now binding upon nobody; and is, moreover, such an one as no people can ever
hereafter be expected to consent to, except as they may be forced to do so at the point of
the bayonet, it is perhaps of no importance what its true legal meaning, as a contract,
is. Nevertheless, the writer thinks it proper to say that, in his opinion, the Constitution is no such instrument as it has
generally been assumed to be; but that by false
interpretations, and naked usurpations, the government has been made in practice a very
widely, and almost wholly, different thing from what the Constitution itself purports to
authorize. He has heretofore written much, and could write much more, to prove that
such is the truth. But whether the Constitution
really be one thing, or another, this much is certain that it has either authorized
such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it
is unfit to exist.
RP is fully aware of Lysander
Spooner. He even lists Spooner's Lets
Abolish Government as an essential read. Why
then is RP mouthing 'constitutional' fixes (Youre
Not Free If You Cant Secede From an Oppressive Government) when the constitution does not exist or has
If we do not have a
constitutional law system in place or operation, RP suggesting that there is a
constitutional solution is stupid and insulting.
If we do not have a constitutional law system in place or operation, we have no lawful
government but only our necks under the boot of mob tyranny.
If RP was really a truth speaker, he would inform the people where, when and how the
constitutional wheels went off or were never attached.
If RP was really a truth
speaker, he would use different language/terms like 'peaceful separation' and not empty
constitutional terms like secession.
Based on the existing legal
reality, there is no lawful government of the People, by the People and for the People
from which to secede. The Constitution has never existed or has long since been DEAD!
This single sentence "Citizens are guilty
until proven innocent in the unconstitutional administrative courts." proves
that RP knows the full measure of this colossal tyranny.
Ron Paul is a poseur, a liar and
a fraud for not speaking the unvarnished truth.
His farewell address succeeds
only in confirming him to be a hypocrite.
Therefore, laying aside falsehood, speak truth each one of you with his neighbor, for we
are members of one another.
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God
comes upon the sons of disobedience.
Therefore do not be partakers with them;
Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them;
for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret.
