"Times of tragedy and war naturally bring out strong emotions... Sometimes people are only too anxious to sacrifice their constitutional liberties during a crisis, hoping to gain some measure of security. Yet nothing would please terrorists more than if we willingly gave up our cherished liberties because of their actions."
by:
Dr. Ron Paul
(1935-) American physician, US Congressman (R-TX), US Presidential candidate

This is as of now an all world anxiety. The incumbent governments are 'luring' the citizens to give up/set aside one or the other of our Constitutional rights and privileges for peace and security - both of which are always in the want - thanks to the avaricious and self-serving political law-makers and law-givers .

    The (false flag) Reichstag Fire was a tragic event that worked very well for the Nazi's. Coincidentally, the attack on the WTC has had nearly the same effect...right out of the Nazi playbook.

    Citizens will give up nearly everything, including liberty in times of war. That's why our government always has some war going.

    Dr. Ron Paul, has always been a voice of sound reasoning, in the sea of corruption. Liberty and Freedom cannot be separated. A quiet voice.

    Change-out the word terrorist, and swap-in TYRANTS, and Dr. Paul's wisdom becomes an apt illustration of the calculated tactics our criminal Federal government is gleefully using to establish a police state in The Land Of Liberty. DEATH TO TYRANTS!
