Ron Paul delivered a five-minute
speech on the floor of the House of Representatives May 25,
a short speech
that may sound to the uninformed like one wild statement after another.
In his speech, Dr. Paul (he's an obstetrician) made a number
of charges that the executive branch of government has established
a virtual dictatorship with the willing assistance of Congress and
many Americans who fear for their "security." But Congressman
Paul is complaining about the erosion of constitutional protections
that have already happened. Following is his speech verbatim, along
with links documenting his allegations. All words are by Congressman
Paul; hyperlinks were added by The New American's
Thomas R. Eddlem.
