This week’s featured video is ‘We Must Revive The Freedom To Question & Make Choices Voluntarily’ by our very own Intellectual Godfather of the Tea Party movement, Doctor Ron Paul.
Without getting too deep here because I don’t want this to become a Ron Paul biography, I just want to mention that Ron Paul has been a HUGE influence on the journey to my political ideology today.
There’s only been a single political candidate that I’ve actively campaigned for and that’s Dr. Paul. No other candidate, from any party, has gotten as much as a bumper sticker or yard sign from me.
It was Ron Paul that helped me understand that my unease and dissatisfaction with the Republican Party was because I had views that aligned closer to the Libertarian Party. Later, I went even further and described myself as a Constitutionalist, a Voluntaryist, and an Anarchist.
BTW, most people have no idea what exactly being an anarchist means so, if you’re not exactly sure, please don’t jump to conclusions. It does not make me an enemy of the state, the process, our republic, or anything else. I think I’ll put out an article sometime this year now that I’m thinking about it.
Back To This Week’s Featured Video: We Must Revive The Freedom To Question & Make Choices Voluntarily
Entire careers of dedicated professionals and patriots have been destroyed as we watch the federal government, and many states, double down on authoritarianism and rip America apart, even at the cost of American lives, to create an even bigger society of socialistic fear-torn sheep.

Video Transcript: We Must Revive The Freedom To Question & Make Choices Voluntarily
▪ ▪ ▪ ▪ ▪ And I want to just follow up a little bit about Aaron Rodgers on this quote that, if you can't challenge it - if you can't question it, it's propaganda. But it looks like we're really there because a lot of people can't do it [Question the Government / Medical Community / Media]. And there's always the threat. And now I think we're in this battle. Is that the way it's going to be? And I've mentioned quite a few times on this program that my experience in medical school and residency and practicing medicine, we were always taught to question, you know, and I always [do], so, I know a little bit about medical history. A lot of things were developed outside of the establishment. You didn't always have to have an NIH grant and you didn't have to, you know? And didn't have Fauci ordering what kind of vaccines to take. That private physicians in practice of medicine with their patients, you know, provided an atmosphere where they were questioning things all the time. And I think in this day and age with the computers and with the internet, there's a lot more questioning. Which you say, "well, won't this be a problem?" There'll be so many different bits of advice on the internet and confusing patients and the doctors and all. Well, maybe a little bit, but it's not anything as dangerous as the government coming down and saying, "you are not allowed to question." If you even question it, you're gonna lose your license and that can happen. So it's fighting for the cause of liberty and understanding that if you want to live in a free society, you have to put a little bit of effort into it. Because it's not complicated, because if you reject the notion that you can't use force to force other people to do what you think they should do then it's a voluntary society, Believe me, that's a much better way to go than with authoritarianism. ▪ ▪ ▪ ▪ ▪
There’s SO much more to cover on Freedom and Liberty. I hope you put some thought into our future here, Brian
