Education

MY FAVORITE AND MOST INSPIRING EDUCATOR IS DR. RON PAUL

Here are a list of Ron Paul quotes that I think are inspirational and show the strength and logic of his ideologies. Please feel free to add your own.

• “I want to use all my strength to resist the notion that I can run your lives or run the economy or run the world. I want to use that strength to repeal and reject that notion and stand up and defend the principles of liberty.”

• “If you can’t protect life then how can you protect liberty?”

 • “We can’t change anything until we change our philosophy about what the government should do. How can we continue to police the world, and spend hundreds of billions of dollars overseas, and spend hundreds of billions of dollars running a welfare state and entitlement system that has accumulated 60 Trillion dollars worth of obligations?” — 2008 South Carolina Debate

• “I don’t want to run the world, the Constitution doesn’t give me the authority to run the world. We ought to mind our own business is what we ought to do!”

• “There’s a difference between military spending and defense spending. Just because you spend a billion dollars on an embassy in Baghdad – bigger than the Vatican – you consider that defense spending. I consider that waste!” — 2012 Florida Debate • “I want to cut money – overseas money – that’s what I want to do. I want to cut military money, I don’t want to cut defense money. I want to bring the troops home – I’d probably have more bases here at home. We were closing them down in the 1990s and building them overseas, that’s how we got in the trouble. So we would save a lot more money and have a stronger national defense and that’s what we should do. But to say that we would be weaker is absolutely wrong.”

• “Zero.” (When asked what the national income tax should be) • “We have to have a strong national defense. But we don’t get strength by deluting ourselves in 900 bases, 130 countries. That is where the problem is.”

• “You need to understand that there’s a difference between just military spending and defense spending. We understand this domestically. If we spend more money domestically we know it’s wrong but we’re supposed to spend more money and that’s conservative? I’ve never quite understood this. We’re supposed to be conservatives and spend less money!” • “We’re in two wars that are costing us trillions of dollars. Those trillions of dollars should have been left in the economy to build jobs and produce prosperity here at home”

• “We, as a group, now have a greater moral responsibility to act than those who live in ignorance. Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it.”
