Nine Questions Americans Need To Be Asking, According To Ron Paul.

Congressman Ron Paul heroically goes before the Congress time and time again. This time, on 9 December 2010, he methodically exposed the falsity of all of the commotion about WikiLeaks and about the calls for the assassination of its founder.

The word treason is being floated around, but when Congress and the President ignore the Constitution this concern about treason is nothing but sheer hypocrisy. Stop the lying and killing and stealing and the trampling on the rights granted in the Constitution and then maybe there could be an honest discussion about treason.

Until then exposing the evil deeds and the evil-doers is a good thing, not a bad thing.

Here are the nine 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?

Thomas Jefferson had it right when he advised: “Let the eyes of vigilance never be closed.”
