Lying is Not Patriotic

Dec 17, 2010 No Comments by

Congressman Dr. Ron Paul delivers another impassioned and intelligent speech on the House Floor on how the US Government and our puppet mainstream media is trying to get the American public to fear Wikileaks and Julian Assange, while trying to hide the covert doings of our wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen — where our soldiers have had to break their Oath to the Constitution, fighting wars undeclared by a corrupt Congress. The government is trying to avoid the fact that security of the exposed documents is their responsibility for which they get paid over $80 billion per year. The media tries to vilify and belittle Assange to justify their own incompetence in failing to keep the American public informed and even going out of their way to cover up important world events.

Ron Paul gives:

“Questions to consider:

1.  Do the American people deserve to know the truth regarding the ongoing war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen?

2.  Could a larger question be: how can an Army Private gain access to so much secret material?

3.  Why is the hostility mostly directed at Assange, the publisher, and not our government’s failure to protect classified information?

4.  Are we getting our money’s worth from the $80 billion per year we spend on our intelligence agencies?

5.  Which has resulted in the greatest number of deaths; lying us into war, or WikiLeaks’ revelations or the release of the Pentagon Papers?

6.  If Assange can be convicted of a crime for publishing information, that he did not steal, what does this say about the future of the First Amendment and the independence of the internet?

7.  Could it be that the real reason for the near universal attacks on WikiLeaks is more about secretly maintaining a seriously flawed foreign policy of empire than it is about national security?

8.  Is there not a huge difference between releasing secret information to help the enemy in the time of a declared war—which is treason—and the releasing of information to expose our government lies that promote secret wars, death, and corruption?

9.  Was it not once considered patriotic to stand up to our government when it’s wrong?”
