Date de naissance: 20. août 1935

Publicité

Ronald Ernest Paul dit Ron Paul, né le 20 août 1935, est un homme politique américain, membre du Parti républicain, représentant du Texas à la Chambre des représentants de 1976 à 1977, de 1979 à 1985, puis enfin de 1997 à 2013. Il a été candidat à l'élection présidentielle de 1988 pour le Parti libertarien, à l'investiture du Parti républicain pour l'élection présidentielle de 2008 et pour l'élection présidentielle de 2012.

Partisan du libertarianisme, il préconise un État fédéral au rôle limité, de faibles impôts, des marchés libres, une politique étrangère non interventionniste ainsi qu'un retour à des politiques monétaires basées sur des métaux pour étalon.

Il est parfois surnommé « Doctor No » au Congrès parce qu'il est diplômé en médecine mais aussi parce qu’il vote contre toutes les lois qui selon lui violent la constitution américaine, augmentent les revenus des membres de la Chambre des Représentants, ou augmentent les impôts.

Citations Ron Paul

„Bonjour, M. Greenspan. Je constate que vous n'avez pas suivi le conseil amical que je vous donnais à l'automne dernier. Je pensais que vous devriez peut-être chercher un autre emploi, mais je vois que vous avez gardé celui que vous aviez.“

—  Ron Paul
Débats parlementaires, Good morning, Mr. Greenspan. I understand that you did not take my friendly advice last fall. I thought maybe you should look for other employment, but I see you have kept your job. en Alan Greenspan était à l'époque président de la Réserve fédérale américaine, et Ron Paul était particulièrement critique à l'égard de la politique menée par cette institution.

„Comment puis-je être candidat tout en disant que je veux être un président faible? Nous avons besoin d'un président solide, assez solide pour résister à la tentation de prendre des pouvoirs que le président ne devrait pas avoir.“

—  Ron Paul
Meetings, How can I run for office and say I want to be a weak president? We need a strong president, strong enough to resist the temptation of taking power the President shouldn’t have. en

„Dans la société libre envisagée par les Pères fondateurs, les écoles doivent rendre compte aux parents, pas aux bureaucrates fédéraux.“

Débats parlementaires, In the free society envisioned by the founders, schools are held accountable to parents, not federal bureaucrats. en

„Quand une seule personne peut déclencher une guerre, par définition, une république n'existe plus.“

„I didn't write them, I didn't read them at the time, and I disavow them.“

—  Ron Paul
2010s, Context: Paul: I didn't write them, I disavow them... Q: So you read them, but didn't do anything. Paul: I never read that stuff. I was probably aware of it ten years after it was written... it's going on twenty years that people have pestered me about this. Q: Well, wouldn't you say it's a legitimate question? Paul: When you get the answer, it's legitimate that you sorta take the answer I give. You know what the answer is? "I didn't write them, I didn't read them at the time, and I disavow them."

„A grand absurdity, a great deception, a delusion of momentous proportions based on preposterous notions and on ideas whose time should never have come. Simplicity, grossly distorted and complicated. Insanity, passed off as logic. Grandiose schemes built on falsehoods with the morality of Ponzi and Madoff. Evil described as virtue. Ignorance pawned off as wisdom. Destruction and impoverishment in the name of humanitarianism. Violence, the tool of change. Preventive wars used as a road to peace. Tolerance delivered by government guns. Reactionary views in the guise of progress. An empire replacing the republic. Slavery sold as liberty. Excellence and virtue traded for mediocrity. Socialism to save capitalism. A government out of control, unrestrained by the constitution, the rule of law or morality. Bickering over petty politics as we descend into chaos.“

—  Ron Paul
2000s, 2006-2009, Context: The title to my special order tonight is 'Current Conditions or Just a Bad Dream'. Could it all be a bad dream or a nightmare? Is it my imagination or have we lost our minds? It's surreal, it's just not believable. A grand absurdity, a great deception, a delusion of momentous proportions based on preposterous notions and on ideas whose time should never have come. Simplicity, grossly distorted and complicated. Insanity, passed off as logic. Grandiose schemes built on falsehoods with the morality of Ponzi and Madoff. Evil described as virtue. Ignorance pawned off as wisdom. Destruction and impoverishment in the name of humanitarianism. Violence, the tool of change. Preventive wars used as a road to peace. Tolerance delivered by government guns. Reactionary views in the guise of progress. An empire replacing the republic. Slavery sold as liberty. Excellence and virtue traded for mediocrity. Socialism to save capitalism. A government out of control, unrestrained by the constitution, the rule of law or morality. Bickering over petty politics as we descend into chaos. The philosophy that destroys us is not even defined. We have broken from reality a psychotic nation. Ignorance with a pretense of knowledge replacing wisdom. Money does not grow on trees, nor does prosperity come from a government printing press or escalating deficits. We are now in the midst of unlimited spending of the people's money. Exorbitant taxation, deficits of trillions of dollars spent on a failed welfare-warfare system. An epidemic of cronyism. Unlimited supplies of paper money equated with wealth. A central bank that deliberately destroys the value of the currency in secrecy, without restraint, without nary a whimper, yet cheered on by the pseudo-capitalists of Wall Street, the military-industrial complex, and Detroit. We police our world empire with troops on 700 bases and in 130 countries around the world. A dangerous war now spreads throughout the Middle East and Central Asia. Thousands of innocent people being killed as we become known as the torturers of the 21st century. We assume that by keeping the already known torture pictures from the public's eye, we will be remembered only as a generous and good people. If our enemies want to attack us only because we are free and rich, proof of torture would be irrelevant. The sad part of all this is that we have forgotten what made America great, good and prosperous. We need to quickly refresh our memories and once again reinvigorate our love, understanding, and confidence in liberty. The status quo cannot be maintained considering the current conditions. Violence and lost liberty will result without some revolutionary thinking. We must escape from the madness of crowds now gathering. The good news is that reversal is achievable through peaceful and intellectual means, and fortunately the number of those who care are growing exponentially. Of course it could all be a bad dream, a nightmare, and that I'm seriously mistaken, overreacting, and that my worries are unfounded. I hope so. But just in case, we ought to prepare ourselves for revolutionary changes in the not-too-distant future. I yield back the balance of my time. Is this reality or just a bad dream? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdXh6ASMfpc (19 May 2009)

„We endorse the idea of voluntarism, self-responsibility, family, friends, and churches to solve problems, rather than saying that some monolithic government is going to make you take care of yourself and be a better person“

—  Ron Paul
1980s, Context: Question: Your solutions, on stopping drug trade, is, give up, give up to world drugs. I say zero tolerance, we use the military for aid, we stop it from getting into the country, we cut it off at the source. Why give up on that fight? Ron Paul: What we give up on is a tyrannical approach to solving a social and medical problem, and We endorse the idea of voluntarism, self-responsibility, family, friends, and churches to solve problems, rather than saying that some monolithic government is going to make you take care of yourself and be a better person. It's a preposterous notion, it never worked, it never will. The government can't make you a better person, it can't make you follow good habits. Why don't they put you on a diet; you're a little overweight, and i think you need government help!

„War is not popular. People get killed, and body bags end up coming back.“

—  Ron Paul, A Foreign Policy of Freedom: Peace, Commerce, and Honest Friendship
Context: War is not popular. It may seem popular in the short run, when there appears to be an immediate victory and everyone is gloating but war is not popular. War is not popular. People get killed, and body bags end up coming back. War is very unpopular, and it is not the politically smart thing to do. A Foreign Policy of Freedom: Peace, Commerce, and Honest Friendship, p. 206.

„The racist effects of Davis-Bacon are no mere coincidence. In fact, many original supporters of Davis-Bacon, such as Representative Clayton Allgood, bragged about supporting Davis-Bacon as a means of keeping cheap colored labor out of the construction industry.“

—  Ron Paul
1990s, Context: Because most minority-owned construction firms are small companies, Davis-Bacon keeps minority-owned firms from competing for Federal construction contracts. The resulting disparities in employment create a demand for affirmative action, another ill-suited and ill-advised Big Government program. The racist effects of Davis-Bacon are no mere coincidence. In fact, many original supporters of Davis-Bacon, such as Representative Clayton Allgood, bragged about supporting Davis-Bacon as a means of keeping cheap colored labor out of the construction industry.

„The real isolationists are those who choose to use force overseas to promote democracy, rather than seek change through diplomacy, engagement, and by setting a positive example“

—  Ron Paul
2000s, 2006-2009, Context: It is not we non-interventionists who are isolationists. The real isolationists are those who impose sanctions and embargoes on countries and peoples across the globe because they disagree with the internal and foreign policies of their leaders. The real isolationists are those who choose to use force overseas to promote democracy, rather than seek change through diplomacy, engagement, and by setting a positive example.

„But let it not be said that we did nothing.“

—  Ron Paul
2000s, 2006-2009, Context: The original American patriots were those individuals brave enough to resist with force the oppressive power of King George. I accept the definition of patriotism as that effort to resist oppressive state power. The true patriot is motivated by a sense of responsibility, and out of self interest -- for himself, his family, and the future of his country -- to resist government abuse of power. He rejects the notion that patriotism means obedience to the state. [... ] Resistance to illegal and unconstitutional usurpation of our rights is required. Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes. But let it not be said that we did nothing. Let not those who love the power of the welfare/warfare state label the dissenters of authoritarianism as unpatriotic or uncaring. Patriotism is more closely linked to dissent than it is to conformity and a blind desire for safety and security. Understanding the magnificent rewards of a free society makes us unbashful in its promotion, fully realizing that maximum wealth is created and the greatest chance for peace comes from a society respectful of individual liberty.

„One of the worst aspects of the census is its focus on classifying people by race. When government tells us it wants information to help any given group, it assumes every individual who shares certain physical characteristics has the same interests, or wants the same things from government. This is an inherently racist and offensive assumption. The census, like so many federal policies and programs, inflames racism by encouraging Americans to see themselves as members of racial groups fighting each other for a share of the federal pie.“

—  Ron Paul
2000s, 2001-2005, Context: I introduced an amendment last week that would have eliminated funds for this intrusive survey in a spending bill, explaining on the House floor that perhaps the American people dont appreciate being threatened by Big Brother. The amendment was met by either indifference or hostility, as most members of Congress either dont care about or actively support government snooping into the private affairs of citizens.
