Ron Paul’s Quotes that Inspired Lord of Columbia

One True American Patriot's Inspirational Messages

We all know Ron Paul, the host of the Ron Paul Liberty Report and a staunch opponent of government interventionism, which is really the primary overreaching theme in Lord of Columbia, so if you don’t like government intrusion, you’ll love these books. Ron Paul’s quotes throughout his time in Washington and to this day have played a major role in the creation in Lord of Columbia, so today’s article touches up on some of his most powerful messages regarding our never-ending fight for liberty here in America.

 

About Life and Liberty

“If you can’t protect life, then how can you protect liberty?”

 

About Restoring Civil Liberties

“The key to restoring our liberty and prosperity, as well as avoiding a major economic crisis, is reversing The Great Mistake of 1913 by repealing the 16th Amendment and auditing and ending the Federal Reserve.”

 

About America’s Failed Foreign Policy

“What if the American people woke up and understood that the official reasons for going to war are almost always based on lies and promoted by war propaganda in order to serve special interests?”

 

About the True Meaning of Patriotism

“A 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.”

 

About Increased Security

“If you sacrifice liberty for security, you will lose both.”

 

More About the True Meaning of Patriotism

“Real patriotism is a willingness of challenge the government when it’s wrong.”

 

About Personal Liberty

“If you like small government you need to work hard at having a strong national defense that is not so militant. Personal liberty is the purpose of government, to protect liberty- not to run your personal life, not to run the economy, and not to pretend that we and tell the rest of the world how to live.”

 

About Government Force

“All initiation of force is a violation of someone else’s rights, whether initiated by an individual or the state, for the benefit of an individual or group of individuals, even if it’s supposed to be for the benefit of another individual or group of individuals.”

 

About Deficits and Debt

“Deficits mean future tax increases, pure and simple. Deficit spending should be viewed as a tax on future generations, and politicians who create deficits should be viewed as tax hikers.”

 

About Government Policy

“Freedom is living without government coercion. So when a politician talks about freedom for this group or that, ask yourself whether he is advocating for more government action or less.”

 

More About Government Policy

“It’s a dangerous notion that we need a government to protect us from ourselves.”

 

More About Personal Liberty

“I’m convinced that you never have to give up liberties in order to be safe. I think you’re less safe when you give up your liberties.”

 

About Truth

“Truth is Treason in an Empire of Lies.”

 

About Donald Trump’s Foreign Policy

“President Trump seems to be incapable of understanding that it is US intervention and occupation of foreign countries that creates instability and feeds terrorism. Continuing to do the same thing for more than 17 years – more US bombs to ‘stabilize’ the Middle East – and expecting different results is hardly foreign policy. IT IS INSANITY.”

 

About Foreign Policy

“We need to change our foreign policy from one of interventionism and confrontation to cooperation and diplomacy.”

 

More About Foreign Policy

“The sad thing is, our foreign policy will change eventually, as Rome’s did, when all budgetary and monetary tricks to fund it are exhausted.”

 

About the Creation of the Fed

“1913 wasn’t a very good year. 1913 gave us the Income Tax, the 16th Amendment, and the IRS.”

 

About the Link Between Foreign Policy and Monetary Policy

“It is no coincidence that the century of total war coincided with the century of central banking.”

 

About His Time in Congress

“I don’t want to run your life, I don’t know how to run your life, I don’t have the authority to run your life, and the Constitution doesn’t permit me to run your life.”

 

About the Chemical Attack False Flag in Syria

“Does anyone believe that on the eve of peace talks, just after the White House said the Syrian people should choose their own leaders, that Assad would launch a gas attack to turn the whole world against him? We’re back to the same lies that got us into Iraq. Do we ever learn to question the propaganda?”

Honestly, the above is just a tiny handful of quotes that helped inspire the new adult urban fantasy series called Lord of Columbia. This article, however, should have given you a nice, little preview on what to expect theme-wise when reading the work. We’re talking about the benefits of a Libertarian utopia called North Columbia versus the dystopia found in Southpoint-controlled land.

Many of the views from America’s founders, Ron Paul, and others, whose works I’d like to introduce later on this site, were instrumental in the creation of this series. So I hope you enjoy reading these action-packed novels yourself, keeping quotes such as the ones listed above in mind while reading through each book.
