Ron Paul
19:15 11/13/2017

If the American government doesn't like a foreign country, or if a foreign country doesn't obey,

a litany of "human rights" abuses are used to justify regime change.

If, on the other hand, a country's leaders are cool with the American government and obey its commands, they can violate "human rights" as they please.

It's all a smokescreen for empire and war.

You're not supposed to make the connection, but the sprawling military empire is responsible for the economic hardships here at home. Yet another $700,000,000,000 is being shuffled off for militarism, and no one is batting an eye. That's how effective the militarist propaganda is, and why it's so persistently displayed everywhere that we look.

The first (and unbelievably prosperous) half of America's history was one of foreign non-intervention. No regime change operations. No destroying of foreign democratically elected regimes. No partnering with brutal dictatorships. No waging wars of aggression. No American troops on any foreign soil anywhere in the world! *That* was the "land of the free" that we're all so fond of referencing. No military establishment. No CIA. No NSA. The second half of America's history has been the polar opposite. All of the above transgressions paid for by the American taxpayer in wealth, blood, and liberty. The American electorate has been voting for an end to this for decades now, but the government continues (to this day) to ignore the voters. Polls are still indicating that American citizens have had enough...and this is all for the positive. More below:

In the Declaration of Independence, one of the grievances listed against King George III was that "He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance." Well .... King George was a sweetheart compared to what has become of the American federal government over the last century. The "swarms of Officers to harass our people" number in the millions! Millions of bureaucrats. Millions!!

Non-interventionism is not Pacifism...It's also not Isolationism. Non-interventionism simply means defending against aggression, and not initiating it. It means peace, trade, commerce and travel. Today we suffer from being *the* primary aggressor militarily, along with trade and travel restrictions, barriers, embargoes and tariffs. Non-intervention is far superior to this.

Far too many people erroneously believe that there is a battle between (free market) "Big Business" and (anti-free market) Politicians. The truth is quite the opposite. "Big Business" is often as anti-free market as the Politicians...just for different reasons. Politicians like to believe that they can control others with force. "Big Business" likes to use political force to defeat, or even totally eliminate, competition and consumer choice. So the reality is that both team up against the free market. Politicians like "government regulations" and so does "Big Business." They both benefit at the expense of everyone else. Even so-called "free market agreements" like NAFTA and the others have nothing whatsoever to do with the free market. They are concoctions of Big Business and Politicians. The free market has no lobbyists, and is universally scorned. When things go south in the economy, the first to get the blame is free markets, even though they don't exist. But the propaganda is so thick, that it doesn't matter that free markets don't exist. Government schools, college professors, and the media all scream in unison against the non-existent free markets, and that's sufficient enough. The solution is always to pile more "regulations" that give ever increasing controls to both "Big Business" and Politicians.

Republicans and Democrats ... Left and Right ... Alt-Left and Alt-Right ... Liberals and Conservatives ... They must be different, right? They're always bickering and fighting with one another. Surely, these are all opponents. To a certain degree, yes, but the differences are really not that significant. What they're primarily fighting over is who government's guns should be pointed at. Who will be the victim of government violence ... that's it! There are some people on one end of the spectrum that believe the guns should be pointed at people who live in different countries (i.e. the warfare statists). On the other end of the spectrum, there are people that believe government's guns should be pointed inwards (the welfare statists). Then there are people who believe themselves to be clever. They're not 'extremists' on one end of the spectrum or the other. They're equal opportunity violence advocates. These individuals favor government guns being used overseas here, here, and here. But they also favor government guns pointed inwards here, here, and here. It's like they're building a Subway sandwich of violence. More below:

As a candidate, Donald Trump used uncommonly harsh language to criticize Saudi Arabia. He called the Saudi regime the world’s biggest funder of terrorism. He said the Saudis use “our petro dollars—our very own money—to fund the terrorists that seek to destroy our people, while the Saudis rely on us to protect them!” Trump even said, “Who blew up the World Trade Center? It wasn’t the Iraqis, it was Saudi [Arabia].” But, after he took office, Trump did a complete 180. He stopped criticizing the Saudis. In fact, he’s now singing their praises! More below:

"Society" is not responsible. Government does not bestow "rights". You are a free individual the moment you take your first breath. Shortly after taking that breath though, a massive deluge of interests get to work on convincing you of the exact opposite. You're still free though, and can recognize it, if you're courageous enough to cut through the brainwashing.

South Koreans realize that they would suffer greatly from another war on the North. Perhaps millions of lives would be lost. A few months ago, South Korea's new president called for peace during his UN speech. Well, South Koreans should take the next step and order all U.S. troops to immediately withdraw. If the U.S. government were no longer in South Korea, then the threat of a U.S. regime-change operation would plummet. Most likely, so would the desire of North Korea to acquire a nuclear capability to strike the United States. But even if North Korea were to proceed with its nuclear program, the chance that it would initiate a war with the United States is nil. Like many totalitarian regimes, North Korea just wants to be left alone. The problem is that the U.S. government won’t leave it alone. More below:
