Quote of the Day (2.27.12)

"What if we wake up one day and realize that the terrorist threat is a predictable consequence of our meddling in the affairs of others...?.........

What if it is finally realized that war and military spending is always destructive to the economy?..........

What if conservatives who preach small government wake up and realize that our interventionist foreign policy provides the greatest incentive to expand the government...........

What if we as a nation came to realize that the quest for empire eventually destroys all great nations?.........

What if the American people learned the truth. That our foreign policy has nothing to do with national security and it never changes from one administration to the next?............

What if diplomacy is found to be superior to bombs and bribes in protecting America?"

- - Ron Paul, in a speech to Congress, February 12, 2009
