Ponder This

Three Things to Ponder:

1. Cows
2. The Constitution
3. The Ten Commandments

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.

They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq. Why don’t we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and we’re not using it anymore.

The real reason that we can’t have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this:You cannot post “Thou Shalt Not Steal,” “Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery,” and “Thou Shall Not Lie” in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians…It creates a hostile work environment.

Care For Some Tea?

“On December 13, 1952, the Constitution and the Declaration were placed in helium-filled cases, enclosed in wooden crates, laid on mattresses in an armored Marine Corps personnel carrier, and escorted by ceremonial troops, two tanks, and four servicemen carrying submachine guns down Pennsylvania and Constitution avenues to the National Archives. Two days later, President Harry Truman declared at a formal ceremony in the Archives Exhibition Hall.

“We are engaged here today in a symbolic act. We are enshrining these documents for future ages. This magnificent hall has been constructed to exhibit them, and the vault beneath, that we have built to protect them, is as safe from destruction as anything that the wit of modern man can devise. All this is an honorable effort, based upon reverence for the great past, and our generation can take just pride in it.””

Between 1787 and 1952 the Constitution was revered. Even in 1987 when I was the Vice Chair of the Los Angeles Federal Executive Board, Constitution Bicentennial Committee, we treated it with a Great Respect and worked hard to ensure that we would celebrate it in a suitable fashion.

Tea Party 07 Graph

If you’re an idiot like me, you were absolutely fascinated by the Dr Paul campaign live donation clock. Image how many people stayed up late to start donating at midnight to the “Tea Party 07” project. Not tea party like tea and crumpets, but TEA PARTY like let’s have a tax protest. A peaceful little gathering of a few hundred thousand people who wanted to throw tea in the harbor. Fascinating.

Since starting to observe politics in the early 80’s, I have never seen anything like this. It gives me hope that we will actually be able to have a President that has the same reverence for the Constitution that I do.

Can You Smell What the Dr Is Cooking?

December 15, 2007
What an amazing mission you and I are on. What great ideas we uphold — the legacy of the most important thinkers of liberty in our country’s history, and the most important doers of liberty in America. At the top of that list are the donors and volunteers of this campaign.

I could spend all my time thanking personally you and everyone who has done so much for our country’s future, and not scratch the surface of what justice demands. But I want you to know how much I owe you, and everyone dedicated to the real America. You and I know our real country — the America of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, of economic, civil, and personal liberty, of strong families and communities, of great businesses and professions, of strong peace and low taxes and sound money-all of which are under assault by the politicians who occupy our nation’s capital.

With your help — and I can’t do anything without your help https://www.ronpaul2008.com/donate/ — I want to change all that. Together, we can restore our constitutional republic, and oust the mountebanks who violate the ideals of the Founders with income taxes, Federal Reserve inflation, deficit spending, preemptive wars, torture, secret prisons, and abolition of habeas corpus.

How thrilling too are all the great Independent efforts in this cause, involving so many tens of thousands of patriots. Of course, since they are Independent, the election laws to do not allow me to coordinate with them in any way. But I will mention that this Sunday, I am really going to enjoy my tea at a party!

We are making real progress. And goodness knows we need to. Help https://www.ronpaul2008.com/donate/ me keep our revolution going and growing. For freedom, peace, and prosperity, for the real America, all our
generosity and hard work are justified.

Sincerely,

Ron
