Ron Paul Talks abt Call to Action (23 QUOTES)

* Yes, there probably is a risk I could win.
* Do they think if we destroy our freedoms for the terrorists they will no longer have a reason to attack us? This seems the epitome of cowardice coming from those who claim a monopoly on patriotic courage.
* Each of us should choose which course of action we must take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes, but let it not be said that we did nothing.
* Faith in government coercion and a lack of understanding of how free societies operate encourages big government liberals and big government conservatives to manufacture a war psychology to demand political loyalty for domestic policy, just as is required in foreign affairs.
* Get back to the revolutionary times and pick up the pieces!
* I am just absolutely convinced that the best formula for giving us peace and preserving the American way of life is freedom, limited government, and minding our own business overseas.
* I have joined your revolution and I’m proud to be part of what you want to do.
* It is dissent from government policies that defines the true patriot and champion of liberty
* Keeping our troops out of harm's way, especially when war is unnecessary, is never unpatriotic. There's no better way to support the troops.
* Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.
* Only by recapturing the spirit of independence can we ensure our government never resembles the one from which the American States declared their separation.
* Only when Washington comes to understand that our founders expressly intended for our federal government to be limited in scope, will policy questions such as this be rightly understood. But that understanding will not come until the people demand their elected officials act in accordance with these principles.
* Peace is a powerful message.
* People want to know what we are doing to get these people to do all this. But I don't do anything. They just do it on their own. It's not me. It's the message.
* Thank you for inviting me to the revolution.
* The original American patriots were those individuals brave enough to resist with force the oppressive power of King George. I accept the definition of patriotism as that effort to resist oppressive state power.
* The true patriot is motivated by a sense of responsibility and out of self-interest for himself, his family, and the future of his country to resist government abuse of power. He rejects the notion that patriotism means obedience to the state.
* Today patriotism has come to mean blind support for the government and its policies. In earlier times patriotism meant having the willingness and courage to challenge government policies regardless of popular perceptions.
* We do know that truth wins out in the end, but I didn't know that there were so many so ready to receive the truth about what's going on. But it truly gives me hope, and that's what we need.
* We live in a great country. We need to fall back on the traditions of our Constitution, and the traditions of America.
* We must not forget that true patriot is the one who protests in spite of the consequences, condemnation or ostracism, or even imprisonment that may result.
* We're at the point where we need a call to arms, both here in Washington and across the country. I'm not talking about firearms. Those of us who care need to raise both arms and face our palms out and begin waving and shouting: Stop! Enough is enough! It should include liberals, conservatives and independents.
* Wise resistance to one's own government doing bad things requires a love of country, devotion to idealism, and respect for the Rule of Law.
