Ron Paul

A Quote by Ron Paul on capitalism, government control, and socialism

Capitalism should not be condemned, since we haven't had capitalism. A system of capitalism presumes sound money, not fiat money manipulated by a central bank. Capitalism cherishes voluntary contracts and interest rates that are determined by savings, not credit creation by a central bank. It's not capitalism when the system is plagued with incomprehensible rules regarding mergers, acquisitions, and stock sales, along with wage controls, price controls, protectionism, corporate subsidies, international management of trade, complex and punishing corporate taxes, privileged government contracts to the military-industrial complex, and a foreign policy controlled by corporate interests and overseas investments. Add to this centralized federal mismanagement of farming, education, medicine, insurance, banking and welfare. This is not capitalism!

A Quote by Ron Paul on capitalism, interventionist-planned economy, corporatism, inflationism, and interventionism

To condemn free-market capitalism because of anything going on today makes no sense. There is no evidence that capitalism exists today. We are deeply involved in an interventionist-planned economy that allows major benefits to accrue to the politically connected of both political spectrums. One may condemn the fraud and the current system, but it must be called by its proper names – Keynesian inflationism, interventionism, and corporatism.

A Quote by Ron Paul on ron paul, iraq, libertarian, foreign policy, and republican

"If we continue to believe they attack us because we're free and prosperous, we can't win this fight. We have to understand the issue of blowback, we have to understand the issue of unintended consequences. And if we have a presence in the Arab world and in the Muslim world, there are consequences."

A Quote by Ron Paul on republic, monarchy, and democracy

At the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on September 18, 1787, a Mrs. Powell anxiously awaited the results, and as Benjamin Franklin emerged from the long task now finished, she asked him directly: "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?"
Franklin replied, "A republic, if you can keep it."
