Top 5 Ron Paul Quotes

1.) Deficits mean future tax increases, pure and simple. Deficit spending should be viewed as a tax on future generations, and politicians who create deficits should be exposed as tax hikers.

2.) Our country's founders cherished liberty, not democracy.

3.) 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. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons.

4.) You wanna get rid of drug crime in this country? Fine, let's just get rid of all the drug laws.

5.) Values in a free society are accepted voluntarily, not through coercion, and certainly not by law... every time we write a law to control private behavior, we imply that somebody has to arrive with a gun, because if you desecrate the flag, you have to punish that person.


  1. #4 is part of why Ron Paul is nuts.

    My favorite RP quote is "The more difficult the problem, the more localized the solution should be."

  2. "The more difficult the problem, the more localized the solution should be."

    That is a good one.

    As for #4, though I agree with it, it was added for the pure humor of seeing a 70 year old man yell about legalizing drugs.


You are the reason why I do not write privately. I would love to hear your thoughts, whether you agree or not.
