Anonymous asked: The idea quote wasn't by Ron Paul. Do a little research.
Yes it was. Victor Hugo had a similar quote which went, “You can resist an invading army; you cannot resist an idea whose time has come.”
But Ron Paul most certainly said “An idea whose time has come cannot be stopped by an army or any government”
You do a little research.
One of my favorite quotes of all time.
I’m not sure was more surprising; that a Ron Paul supporter worked for the NSA or that the NSA would hire a Ron Paul supporter…
But Dr. Paul, you can put it in your pocket. In fact, my bitcoins are easily accessible nearly everywhere I go through my iPhone.
Actually, you can’t.
Bitcoins exist in a digital realm. Even if you store them on your phone and that phone is in your pocket, someone can still access them and take them from you without you ever knowing. Or you can break your phone and lose the btc forever.
Hard money is much, much harder to lose or eliminate.
That’s one of the drawbacks of bitcoin. While the actual coding and security features built into BTC are nearly air-tight, it’s the third parties who are very vulnerable.
- Ron Paul
First of all, we generally like Dr. Paul around here, especially on fiscal matters. However, his tweet today regarding murdered Navy Seal Chris Kyle was completely wrong-headed, insensitive, and foolish. It’s as if Paul doesn’t understand the difference between combat and murder.
Sorry “Poor Richard’s News,” you have no idea what you are talking about.
Chris Kyle created a brand around long-distance murder and created a business—a best-selling book and a weapons instructor gig—around the fact he was an enthusiastic killer for the war machine. That is the “lives by the sword” part of Ron Paul’s remarks.
It is worth remember that Kyle chose to become a public figure with the publication of his autobiography where he brags about killing 160 people. That Kyle leaves behind a family is a tragedy and no one is gloating about it., not the least Ron Paul. The truth is that Kyle—enthusiastic killer for Empire—is also a victim of that same injustice. He is a casualty of our wars, a victim of this country’s unquenchable bloodlust, downed by another veteran whose mind is ruined by these ceaseless conflicts.
The only “shame” in this is that as Americans we happily consume such warporn. The only “shame” is that a market that exists for books the glorifying the violence of our military personnel. What is next? A tell-all book about the Haditha Massacre?
Ron Paul stated the obvious here: a man who glorified his own violence met his end just as violently.
This response was spot-on perfection.
