'Ron Paul: The Film' by Infowars Backs Up Retiring Congressman's Points
December 8, 2012
Ron Paul's farewell speech in November 2012 made the rounds throughout the internet, but due to skepticism of the former congressmen's (R-Texas) words, Infowars pieced together news clips and backup documentation to show that Paul speaks the truth. Hence the birth of Ron Paul: The Film.
[...] In 2012, more young people became aware of the damage "big government" continues to do to our economy and civil liberties as thousands showed up to his rallies, Paul points out.
Paul begins wrapping up his speech with the five greatest dangers that the American people face to impede a goal of a free society. What are they?
1. The continuous attack on our civil liberties which threatens the rule of law and our ability to resist the onrush of tyranny.
2. Violent anti-Americanism that has engulfed the world. Because the phenomenon of "blow-back" is not understood or denied, our foreign policy is destined to keep us involved in many wars that we have no business being in. National bankruptcy and a greater threat to our national security will result.
4. A financial political crisis as a consequence of excessive debt, unfunded liabilities, spending, bailouts, and gross discrepancy in wealth distribution going from the middle class to the rich. The danger of central economic planning, by the Federal Reserve must be understood.
5. World government taking over local and US sovereignty by getting involved in the issues of war, welfare, trade, banking, a world currency, taxes, property ownership, and private ownership of guns.
Not just Infowars.com, but many a political researcher and pundit took notice that Ron Paul's farewell address to Congress was a historic and very important speech spelling out that our country is becoming a corrupt empire and that we're becoming a tyranny of tyrannies.
The New York Times, LA Times, Fox News and many others all took notice of his farewell address, something that doesn't normally happen with a Congressman, as he laid out the fork in the road America has come to: liberty or tyranny.
I asked one of my great reporters and video editors, Jon Bowne, to just back everything Congressman Paul said up, but when we talk about something, we like to show news articles or video clips because so many are skeptical and in denial about the ravaged state of our liberties.
Originally we intended the piece to be just something for the Infowars Nightly News, but it quickly snowballed into a three week project as we did more and more research backing up everything he said.
So, now this is essentially Ron Paul's Farewell 2.0. It's a film because his farewell address was about his life and about where this country is going and the choice we have. So it really is Ron Paul: The Film.
We struggled with the name for it: "Ron Paul's Farewell Address Documented," "Ron Paul's Farewell Address Animated," "Ron Paul's Farewell Address Illustrated and Documented," call it what you will.
Here is "Ron Paul: The Film" because he condensed down his thirty plus years of fighting tyranny into this incredibly important and profound warning that if we don't turn things around, we are in deep, deep trouble and are going to repeat history.
