Ron Paul: US Democracy Is Dead

Ron Paul announces that US democracy is dead

Former presidential candidate Ron Paul has said that democracy in the U.S. is effectively dead, saying that having to choose between Trump and Clinton amounts to no real choice.

Speaking on MCNBC’s “Morning Joe” show, Ron Paul said “This country, we do not really have democracy. I mean, even if we were really, really super happy with the Libertarian candidate, you think they’d get into the debates? No, the debates are run by the Republicans and Democrats“.

Politico.com reports:

Republicans and Democrats would “find a way of excluding them,” Paul said, and it would not likely happen “unless you’re a billionaire and can put enough pressure, and the media capitulate and say, hey, maybe we ought to talk to a third-party candidate.”

“Overall, foreign policy won’t change with either party in a significant manner.

Spending is going to continue.

Government intervention of the Federal Reserve is going to keep manipulating interest rates, and never facing up to the fact that this country has lived way beyond its means.

And the debt is incomprehensible and all we know is it’s going to grow and grow,” said Paul, who mounted an unsuccessful bid for the GOP nomination in 2012.

“And I think the fighting, the personal fighting is a distraction from the real issue, which is personal liberty and the bankruptcy of this country and the failure of our foreign policy.”

    The vote hasn’t counted since Woodrow Wilson…. All Presidents have moved us to the left, however they did it in various degrees… Democrats HARD LEFT…. Republicans a little to the right then way back left…

    Always be a light that is .shininginthedark.

      Not so fast. Wilson gave us the federal reserve and the irs. Both done in the dead of night when no one was around to vote NO!

    I have absolutely no respect for the coward Ron Paul anymore! He was called into the Federal Reserve Building for breakfast with Ben Bernanke while he was campaigning, and the same morning he announced he wouldn’t be participating in any more caucuses. He was ordered to shut his mouth about the Federal Reserve in his speeches, and he obeyed their order to secure a seat for his little boy back-stabber Rand.

    A lot of good this mealy mouthed old man did for decades in the House. Just as today, he talks but nothing comes from it.

    Thanks for ripping us on contributions and handing your fake campaign to zionists. Good luck with your lousy stansbury shit. Phony bastard.

      “Stansbury”? Could you explain that reference?

    Ron Paul always was a Roman Catholic shill. You can tell who they are because all the worlds problems are blamed on “zionists”, when it is the Vatican that runs the US. The Supreme Court is packed with papists. You have Roman shills like our VP, Kerry, pelosi etc. not to mention the knight of Malta pat Buchanan who is all over MSM.

    America lost Lincoln’s War of Northern Aggression. The place has been a cesspool ever since.

      We didn’t keep it , we lost it and turned into a democracy. Just another word for communism.

        Hi,

        I am not from the U.S. and no little about this part of U.S. history. Rather than study War of Northern Aggression in its entirety, which I may not have the opportunity to do, can you point me what I can read that supports what you are stating in summary?

          Don’t bother, if you’re that lazy.

    In no way, shape, or form can the foreign policy agendas of Hillary and Donald be equated!! In the same way, neither can their campaigns! One is bought and the other is not! One has declared noninterventionism and the other is New World Order all the way! One wants America first the other wants Israel first and ONLY!

    His speech patterns, alone, tell you he’s lying; he can’t get through a single sentence without
    stumbling all over himself. Hearing him ‘live’ is much, much different from reading a transcript.

    “saying that having to choose between Trump and Clinton amounts to no real choice”

    Funny at what part of the video did he say that again?
