"I talked about all our ideas: marching out of Iraq just as we marched in; no more meddling in the Middle East;
bringing the troops home, from hundreds of expensive bases all over the world, so that we could have the money
we need for the transition to freedom in social programs, and to abolish the personal income tax and the IRS.
They are not compatible with a free society.
"In a Ron Paul administration, we would also repeal the Patriot Act and the Military Commissions Act, restore
habeas corpus and stop the spying on Americans. No more eavesdropping on our emails and bank accounts, our
phone calls, home and businesses. No national ID — just the bracing freedom of the Constitution.
"We must have sound money, and not a giant counterfeiting machine called the Federal Reserve that causes
recessions and inflation. We must have private property rights, with no pollution or other attacks on
property. We should enforce the Second Amendment, and all the Bill of Rights. We can have privacy for us, not secrecy for
a corrupt bureaucracy.
"It is all within our grasp, the restoration of the republic and our sovereignty — no UN, no North American Union,
no Nafta, no WTO, no World Bank, no IMF. Just federalism, free enterprise, peace, prosperity, and the kind of
future we all want for our families, ourselves, and our fellow Americans."
