Bookmark and Share In an intriguing speech at CPAC, the much awaited Congressman from Texas, Ron Paul, issued many legitimates warnings to America, warnings that attack all that lies at the heart of Dr. Pauls sincerely, heartfelt concerns over the erosion of liberty.

In his approximately 20 minute long address, Rep. Paul told the audience that we need to changethe philosophy of what this country is all about. He described the Patriot Act as literally being the destruction of the 4th Amendment. He also literally stated that all the problems in the Mid East are our [Americas] fault and declared that when it comes to foreign aid and Egypt, we need to do a lot less, a lot sooner, not only in Egypt but around the world. Paul stated it use to be conservatives were against foreign aid. Im against all of it.

At one point Ron Paul even made a point to remind us that the fall of communism came about not through confrontation but by the collapse of the former Soviet Unions economy, a factor that was expedited bytheir inability to afford such foreign ventures as their ten year war in Afghanistan. He then brought our war in Afghanistan and added, so why do we think we can succeed?”

Another focus of Ron Pauls speech was a legitimate claim to the illegitimate role that Federal Reserve plays in our nation and how an audit of the fed is the first step to ending the federal reserve.

From beginning to end, Ron Paul was bolstered by an audience that contained a percentage of loyal enthusiastic followers with whom Ron Paul could say nothing wrong. The supporters literally raised the roof for Ron at CPAC. But it was also many of these Pauliacs who yesterday threw epitaphs at Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld as the former Vice President presented Rummy with the ACUs Defender of Freedom Award. Some of them were even heard shouting out, war criminals at the two. Such antics and behavior were certainly not representative of Ron Paul. While passionate in his beliefs, he is respectful and through the words of his speech, much of his logic is understood and accepted and ceratinly warrants a place in the debate. A fact which I wish I could say about some of his supporters.
