Great Ron Paul video, hearkens back to the sentiment felt a year ago and all the related videos that went viral.
I appreciate hearing the Vietnam Vet’s take on things, his desire to conclude the Iraq War and his thoughts about the Vietnam War, especially just having listened to recordings of MLK’s speeches opposing the Vietnam War. It was as if America was given [in the 60s] a chance to wake up and stop being a war-like people but on the whole they turned away the voices of reason, like MLK. It seems we are being given one more chance to wake up and become a peaceable people again with the Ron Paul movement. Its up to individual Americans.
“. . . It seems that I can hear God saying to America, ‘you are too arrogant. If you don’t change your ways, I will rise up and break the backbone of your power’. . .” —Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 1967

Yesterday Ron Paul called Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “the great champion of non-violence at home, peace abroad, and civil disobedience against tyrannical government.” Watch/listen to these MLK speeches and you’ll see what Dr. Paul meant. When it came to peace and the defense of inalienable rights Dr. King was a true American hero.

“…so you’re suggesting that I’m not electable, and that the Republicans don’t want me because I’m a strict fiscal conservative? Because I believe in civil liberties? Why should we not be defending civil liberties?”
