Ron Paul: U.S. 'slipping into a fascist system'

The Founding Fathers are rolling over in their graves.  Does anyone really give a crap about the Constitution?
  • Trillions of dollars spent by both parties with no budget passed for years on end.
  • Both parties violating the 10th Amendment and forcing states and cities to follow Federal rules all the way down to the food a child eats at school.
  • Both parties voting to set up a Big Brother Police State.
  • Endless undeclared wars.  Congress has given the power to make war to an "Elected Monarch."
  • Congress no longer represents the people.  Members are bought and paid for by Billionaire Cartels of labor unions and multi-national corporations.

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul warned the U.S. is "slipping into a fascist system" dominated by government and businesses.

Paul staged his rally near the nation's World War I museum, asserting that the U.S. got off track about 100 years ago during the era of President Woodrow Wilson, who led the nation through World War I and unsuccessfully advocated for the nation's involvement in a forerunner of the United Nations said the Associated Press.

"We've slipped away from a true Republic," Paul said. "Now we're slipping into a fascist system where it's a combination of government and big business and authoritarian rule and the suppression of the individual rights of each and every American citizen."

Although campaign aides were aware, Paul told reporters after his speech that he did not know his rally was coinciding with long-established Missouri and Kansas Republican Party events, where Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell - a vice presidential prospect - was the keynote speaker.

Several Republicans slipped away from the banquets to join the Paul rally. Among them was Ralph Munyan, a Republican committeeman in Kansas City's home county, who said he agreed with Paul's warnings of a "fascist system" and his pledge to the end nation's involvement in wars overseas and against drugs.

"His foreign policy is one of peace," Munyan said.

Paul repeatedly denounced President Barack Obama's recent enactment of a law requiring military custody of anyone suspected to be associated with al-Qaida and involved in planning an attack on the U.S. Obama said when he signed the legislation that his administration would not authorize the indefinite military detention of American citizens without a trial.

Rick Santorum is a Liberal

The truth is Rick Santorum never met a Big Government program he did not want to fund with other people's money.  Santorum eagerly backed the No Child Left Behind Act, the creation of a centralized police state with the Department of Homeland Security and Bush's massive and un-funded Medicare expansion.

Ron Paul re-launched his attack against rival Rick Santorum as a liberal, adding he doubts the former Pennsylvania senator could beat President Barack Obama in November if he wins the party's nomination.

"His voting record is, I think from my viewpoint, an atrocious voting record - how liberal he's been in all the things he's voted for over the many years he was in the Senate and in the House," Paul said on CNN's "State of the Union."

Paul, however, argued that the candidates, including Santorum, were focused on the wrong issues.

"This whole idea about that talking about the social issues and who is going to pay for birth control pills, I'm worried about undermining our civil liberties, the constant wars going on, the debt of $16 trillion," Paul told CNN Chief Political Correspondent Candy Crowley. "They are worried about birth control pills and here he wants to control people's social lives."
