Say No To Involuntary Servitude
November 21, 2003    2003 Ron Paul 122:6
Since the original reasons for the war never existed, it is now claimed that weíre there to make Iraq a western-style democracy and to spread western values. And besides, itís argued, itís nice that Saddam Hussein has been removed from power. But does the mere existence of evil somewhere in the world justify preemptive war at the expense of the American people? Utopian dreams, fulfilled by autocratic means, hardly qualify as being morally justifiable.

A Wise Consistency
February 11, 2004    2004 Ron Paul 2:19
Promoting Democracy ó An Obsession Whose Time Has Passed : Promoting democracy is now our nationís highest ideal. Wilson started it with his ill-advised drive to foolishly involve us in World War I. His utopian dream was to make the world safe for democracy. Instead, his naivetť and arrogance promoted our involvement in the back-to-back tragedies of World War I and World War II. Itís hard to imagine the rise of Hitler in World War II without the Treaty of Versailles. But this has not prevented every president since Wilson from promoting U.S.-style democracy to the rest of the world.
