Ron Paul’s Comments on Martial Law Are Super Significant
December 21, 2011
Last week, leading Republican candidate Ron Paul spoke on the Alex Jones radio show about his presidential campaign, his solutions for America’s problems, and his views about the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act.
Dr. Paul said that the NDAA bill, which identifies America as part of the global battlefield in America’s Global War of Terror, establishes the legal ground for President Obama to declare a national emergency and impose martial law in America.
“I think the significant difference is not so much in what they have done,” said Dr. Paul, “but the announcement and the arrogance of it all that they actually put it into law. . . This to me is an extremely wrong way to go. This is a giant step, this should be the biggest news going right now, it’s literally legalizing martial law.”
Dr. Paul added that it is the responsibility of journalists, bloggers, and activists to talk about this freedom-killing bill and increase public awareness about its dangerous implications for American society, saying: “It’s up to so many of us now to wake the people up because they probably don’t realize the significance of this, but this is big, this is big.”
