I ran across the video while I was trolling through Twitter. It’s a Ron Paul speech from 2002, the year I graduated high school. I had no idea who he was back then, but his words sort of hit me like a knuckle sandwich to the nose. It’s not that I don’t already know about these things, but hearing it condensed into a five-minute speech that was made ten years ago really puts the hook in you, to use a phrase from a favorite film of mine. Ron Paul may not be the only person in Washington who understands what has been going on, but he’s the only person brave enough to stand up and repeatedly tell us the truth. Unfortunately, all of his predictions made in this video have come true. All the more reason we need him to be the last man standing.
