Schlaganfälle durch schnurlos Telefone

Im Rahmen meiner Selbsthilfearbeit begegne ich ständig armen Teufeln, die solche Mikrowellenschleudern nutzen mit zum Teil katastrophalen Folgen. Wer möchte kann den Vorgang weitergeben.

Gerd Zesar


Guten Tag Gerd Zesar,

am Freitag, 24. Dezember 2004 um 17:17 schrieben Sie:

GZ> Haben Sie viel mit einem Handy oder Schnurlos-Telefon telefoniert? Dann wäre es sinnvoll, erst mal auf diese Technik zu verzichten.

Handy fast nie. Allerdings schnurlos Homehandy ja. Seit ca. 4 Jahren sogar direkt neben dem Kopfkissen im Schlafzimmer. Habe ich gestern gerade aus dem Schlafzimmer verbannt.

GZ> Allerdings müsste man mehr über die Krankheitsgeschichte erfahren.

Ende 2003 war die erste Gehirnblutung. März 2004 die zweite. Schlechter sehen konnte ich schon Anfang 2003. Der erste AA war eine Niete. Er hat nichts bei mir gefunden. Hat sogar noch meinem Hausarzt eine Mitteilung mitgegeben, ob er noch weiter suchen soll. Als mein Sehvermögen immer schlechter wurde, bin ich in eine Augenklinik gegangen. Wollte ja nicht zu Hause warten bis ich blind bin. Dort brauchten die für die Diagnose ganze 2 Minuten. Engwinkelglaukom mit zu hohem IOD und fast zerstörtem Sehnerv auf dem rechten Auge kam dann heraus. Juli 2004 dann Trabekulektomie rechts. Oktober 2004 wegen zu hohem IOD links, zweimal Yag-Laser Iridotomie. Rechts ist der Druck jetzt bei 10-12, also in Ordnung. Links geht er langsam wieder über 20 mm Hg. Ist aber noch kein Problem. Da ich ein Selbsttonometer habe, bekomme ich das mit Tropfen zur Nacht gut hin. Pendelt mit Tropfen jetzt bei 12-14 und abends vor dem Tropfen bei 16-18 mm Hg. Damit dachte ich eigentlich alles getan zu haben. Leider Fehlanzeige. Mein Sehvermögen wird beinahe täglich schlechter. Dem AA (ein neuer natürlich) fiel nichts mehr weiter ein. Soll dort erst wieder Anfang 2005 erscheinen. Um nicht tatenlos rumzusitzen, meine Frage nach Strophantin. Gingko brachte bei mir anscheinend nichts. Das Strophantin könnte ich mir besorgen. Wollte nur vorher so vie wie möglich darüber wissen, da ich das auf eigenes Risiko nehmen will. Mein Hausarzt verschreibt mir vor lauter Angst wegen der Gehirnblutung höchstens noch Baldrian. So ganz ungefährlich scheint das Strophantin wohl nicht zu sein. Wegen des Herzens brauche ich das aber nicht. Da ist alles in Ordnung. Habe übrigens unter anderem auch einen eigenen Ergometrieplatz mit EKG natürlich. Bin inzwischen so eine Art Hobbymediziner geworden. Blutdruck, Puls und O2-Sättigung messe ich auch jeden Tag. Bis vor kurzem habe ich auch Spirometrie selber gemacht. Meine COPD ist aber nicht so gravierend schlecht, eben EX-Raucher Schicksal. Habe das Spirometer gerade via eBay wieder vertickert.

U.S. passport privacy: Over and out?

It's December 2005 and you're all set for Christmas in Vienna. You have your most fashionable cold-weather gear, right down to Canada's national red maple leaf embroidered on your jacket and backpack, to conceal your American citizenship from hostile denizens of Europe.

But your secret isn't really safe. As you stroll through the terminal, you pass a nondescript man with a briefcase. The briefcase contains a powerful radio scanner, and simply by walking past, you've identified yourself as an American. Without laying a finger on you, the man has electronically "skimmed" the data in your passport.
(...) "Somebody can identify you as an American citizen from across the street because of the passport in your back pocket," said Albrecht, founder of a Web site concerned with the matter, spychips.com. "You're a walking target."(...)

The chips might be made more secure by encrypting the data they contain. That way, it would be useless even if intercepted. (..) "Encryption limits the global interoperability of the passport," said Shannon (..) of the State Department. (...)

Wrap an RFID chip inside a Faraday cage, and the electromagnetic waves from the chip reader can't get in and activate the chip.

The State Department says it may use the principle to give travelers an added sense of security. No, there won't be rolls of aluminum foil included with every passport. Instead, the passport cover may include a network of wires woven into the fabric. Fold the passport shut, and there's your Faraday cage. (...)

"It took a bunch of criticism before they even mentioned it," Schneier said. And he hopes the anti-snooping technology is thoroughly tested before the new passports are introduced next spring.

US State Department: Lowtech Fix für Hightech RFID Pässe

Nachdem nun auch immer mehr US Medien von der Gefahr von RFID-Pässen berichten, empfiehlt das US State Department nun offiziell Faradaysche Käfige zum Schutz - mehr noch: man überlegt sich, diesen gleich in den Pass zu integrieren.


Warum ist den Behörden der Funkchip wichtiger als die tatsächliche Sicherheit der Bürger?

Whose war is it now?

by Mustafa Malik

Boston Globe

12/23/04

A tiger killed a fawn and began munching on it, according to a popular Bangladeshi folk tale. A hungry bear jumped on the tiger to snatch the carcass away. The two fought until both lay mortally wounded, unable to move. A fox, which was watching the fight from a bush, scampered to the dead fawn and feasted to its heart's content.

The United States overthrew Saddam Hussein only to be overwhelmed by a Sunni Arab insurgency. But Sunni Arabs, being a minority, can't come to power through the Jan. 30 elections. This is why most of them are boycotting the vote. ... Now Arab commentators are saying that America is fighting 'Iran's war...

Compliant news media have failed the American people

by Lois Melina

Baltimore Sun

12/23/04

President Bush invaded Iraq on false pretenses, and many in the news media not only didn't question his assertions but served to legitimize them. The Patriot Act, which authorizes serious abridgments of civil liberties, was enacted and allowed to continue with hardly a whimper from the institutions that depend on the First Amendment for their existence. The story of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib all but died with no high-level official held responsible.

Pursuing these kinds of stories takes time, energy and sources. It is fueled by a healthy skepticism from reporters and courage on the part of editors. And it requires that government be sufficiently in awe of the power of the press so that it provide answers and access.

Instead, we have too many reporters who believe it is their job simply to quote what people tell them -- who think being 'investigative' is getting a conflicting quote...

Press still falling down on Iraq

by Danny Schechter

Media Channel

12/23/04

Since when did the American Civil Liberties Union become a media organization? Or put another way: why have so much of our press fallen down on the job of pushing the Bush Administration to disclose information about its war-related practices, ranging from how it provides for our troops to detailing military abuse of prisoners and detainees? Documents pried from the government by the ACLU ... suggest that the abuse of detainees was more systematic than we knew and ordered from on high. One email even indicates that President Bush signed off on the policy. While the administration disputes the document, that famous question raised during the Watergate investigation comes around again in a different form: What did the President know and when did he forget he knew it?

Turning strangers into political friends

by Danielle Allen

In These Times

12/23/04

One study after another has reported declines in U.S. citizens' trust of their government and other institutions of authority since the '60s. Most recently the University of Chicago's National Opinion Research Center announced that whereas 53 percent of U.S. citizens in 1964 thought 'most people can be trusted,' by 2002 only 35 percent of them thought so. John Hart Ely wrote in Democracy and Distrust that the continuance of democracy depends on the meticulous cultivation among citizens of distrust in government. We should all, he argues, be so many jumpy watchdogs. On one level he's right. We citizens should cast a skeptical eye on all claims made by governing officials and hold them accountable for choices good and ill...

Mock the vote

by Blair Bobier

Common Dreams

12/23/04

Some people just have no respect for the law these days. Unfortunately, they happen to be in charge of our elections. Ohio's Republican Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell and New Mexico's Democratic Governor Bill Richardson are two elected officials who seem to care little for the laws governing elections or the people who put them in office. Both Ohio and New Mexico had more than their share of problems on Election Day -- problems with electronic voting machines, problems with provisional and absentee ballots and, in Ohio, numerous allegations of racially-based voter suppression and intimidation. ...

You'd think that public servants -- responsible for administering elections and sworn to uphold the law -- would want to get to the bottom of these allegations. You'd be wrong...

When is it torture? Is it ever legal?

by Matt Hayes

Fox News

12/23/04

It was reported this week that President Bush signed an executive order authorizing robust interrogation methods of captured enemy combatants. The White House, as well as various agencies, denies the existence of such an order, despite an FBI memo that refers to such an order. But if the executive order does not exist, could the individuals who engaged in such interrogation tactics be held legally culpable if they did so believing their actions were sanctioned by the White House? And does what allegedly occurred at places like Guantanamo Bay actually amount to torture? ... Almost any coercive action qualifies as torture under the Convention. It defines torture as 'any act by which severe pain or suffering, whether physical or mental, is intentionally inflicted.' ... Torture is also prohibited by several orders in different elements of the military and law enforcement...

Video Supporting Ohio Vote Fraud Claim Revealed

EXCLUSIVE: Video Supporting Ohio Vote Fraud Claim Revealed //www.truthout.org/docs_04/122404X.shtml

Truthout has come into possession of video from Hocking County, Ohio. The video was recorded by a documentary film crew that was reporting on the Ohio election. The crew interviewed a technician from Triad Systems. In a report released by truthout on December 15, 2004, we reported on an affidavit filed by Sherole Eaton, Hocking County deputy director of elections. In her affidavit, Eaton stated:

On Friday, December 10 2004, Michael from TriAd called in the AM to inform us that he would be in our office in the PM on the same day. I asked him why he was visiting us. He said, "to check out your tabulator, computer, and that the attorneys will be asking some tricky questions and he wanted to go over some of the questions they may ask." He also added that there would be no charge for this service.

He arrived at about 12:30PM. I hung his coat up and it was very heavy. I made a comment about it being so heavy. He, Lisa Schwartze and I chatted for a few minutes. He proceeded to go to the room where our computer and tabulation machine is kept. I followed him into the room. I had my back to him when he turned the computer on. He stated that the computer was not coming up. I did see some commands at the lower left hand of the screen but no menu. He said that the battery in the computer was dead and that the stored information was gone. He said that he could put a patch on it and fix it. My main concern was - what if this happened when we were ready to do the recount. He proceeded to take the computer apart and call his offices to get information to input into our computer. Our computer is fourteen years old and as far as I know had always worked in the past. I asked him if the older computer, that is in the same room. could be used for the recount. I don't remember exactly what he said but I did relay to him that the computer was old and a spare. At some point he asked if he could take the spare computer apart and I said "yes". He took both computers apart. I don't remember seeing any tools and he asked Sue Wallace, Clerk, for a screwdriver. She got it for him. At this point I was frustrated about the computer not performing and feared that it wouldn't work for the recount. I called Gerald Robinette, board chairman, to inform him regarding the computer problem and asked him if we could have Tri Ad come to our offices to run the program and tabulator for the recount. Gerald talked on the phone with Michael and Michael assured Gerald that he could fix our computer. He worked on the computer until about 3:00 PM and then asked me which precinct and the number of the precinct we were going to count. I told him, Good Hope 1 # 17. He went back into the tabulation room. Shortly after that he (illegible) stated that the computer was ready for the recount and told us not to turn the computer off so it would charge up.

Before Lisa ran the tests, Michael said to turn the computer off. Lisa said, " I thought you said we weren't supposed to turn it off." He said turn it off and right back on and it should come up. It did come up and Lisa ran the tests. Michael gave us instructions on how to explain the rotarien, what the tests mean, etc. No advice on how to handle the attorneys but to have our Prosecuting Attorney at the recount to answer any of their legal questions. He said not to turn the computer off until after the recount.

He advised Lisa and I on how to post a "cheat sheet" on the wall so that only the board members and staff would know about it and and what the codes meant so the count would come out perfect and we wouldn't have to do a full hand recount of the county. He left about 5:00 PM.

My faith in Tri Ad and the Xenia staff has been nothing but good. The realization that this company and staff would do anything to dishonor or disrupt the voting process is distressing to me and hard to believe. I'm being completely objective about the above statements and the reason I'm bringing this forward is to, hopefully, rule out any wrongdoing.

The video of the technician buttresses her claims, and further reveals that the Triad representative acted in the same manner in several other counties besides Hocking.

The revelation of this video has motivated Rep. John Conyers, ranking minority member of the House Judiciary Committee, to post a letter to Brett Rapp, President of Triad Systems. In the letter, Conyers states:

I have just reviewed a tape prepared by the documentarian Lynda Byrket of the hearing held by the Hocking County Board of Elections on December 20, and based on that tape I have more questions and concerns than ever about the conduct of your firm in connection with the Ohio presidential election and recount. In particular, I am concerned that your company has operated - either intentionally or negligently - in a manner which will thwart the recount law in Ohio by preventing validly cast ballots in the presidential election from being counted.

You have done this by preparing "cheat sheets" providing county election officials with information such that they would more easily be able to ignore valid ballots that were thrown out by the machines during the initial count. The purpose of the Ohio recount law is to randomly check vote counts to see if they match machine counts. By attempting to ascertain the precinct to be recounted in advance, and than informing the election officials of the number of votes they need to count by hand to make sure it matches the machine count is an invitation to completely ignore the purpose of the recount law.

The mounting evidence of election tampering by Triad representatives has motivated 2004 Presidential candidate John Kerry to join with Green Party and Libertarian Party representatives in their Ohio recount effort. John Kerry will file today, in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, papers in support of the Green Party/Libertarian Party recount effort. Specifically, Kerry will be filing a request for expedited discovery regarding Triad Systems voting machines, as well as a motion for a preservation order to protect any and all discovery and preserve any evidence on this matter.

Electors Call for National Voting Reforms
By Greg Guma
The Vermont Guardian

Thursday 23 December 2004

Breaking with tradition, electors in at least five states have called for a congressional investigation of voting violations during the Nov. 2 election for president. Electors in Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, California, and North Carolina registered their concerns as they cast their votes last week.

The following day, the Berkeley City Council adopted a resolution "supporting the request that the Government Accountability Office immediately undertake an investigation of voting irregularities in the 2004 elections." Drafted by Berkeley's Peace and Justice Commission, the resolution also lists 17 measures to improve elections.

After hearing citizens speak, Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates said, "Nothing is more fundamental than a free, fair election. When you start tinkering with that, it throws the whole system into disarray. I am pleased that we are taking this stand."

In Massachusetts, elector Cathleen Ashton of Wayland demanded that "every vote be counted and every vote count," while Maine's electors called for national voting reforms. Their statement pointed to Maine initiatives such as same-day registration, allowing felons to vote, and clean election reforms.

"Our four electoral votes are held meaningless if our sister states cannot hold elections that are fair, accurate, and verifiable," said elector Lu Bauer after the ceremony at the Maine State House.

Massachusetts electors passed a motion urging members of Congress to object to the vote. It also requested an investigation of "all voting complaints that might have any validity" and remedies for "any voting rights violations or electoral fraud verified by its own agents or through the courts."

Massachusetts elector Tom Barbera said his life was threatened during get-out-the-vote efforts.

Another elector spoke of being targeted for intimidation. Noting that many whose voting rights were violated were African American, Barbera, who presented the Massachusetts' motion, said, "we believe that as electors, we have a unique opportunity and obligation to ensure that justice does not again become so delayed as to be denied."

Vermont electors expressed concerns about a reported 57,000 complaints received by a congressional Judiciary Committee and called on Congress and Vermont's congressional delegation to investigate.

In California, one elector cast his ballot provisional upon "all votes being counted - provisional, absentee, under- and over-votes, computerized without paper ballots, even getting valid votes from those turned away illegally, intimidated, discouraged by incredibly long waits, etc."

This is an attempt to get the message read on the floor of Congress prior to certification on Jan. 6, when the ballots are opened.

"Never has such a vote been cast by an elector," said Grace Ross, an organizer of the national effort to support electors to take action, and a member of Truth in Elections. "And without a parliamentarian to rule it in or out at the Electoral College level, we await whether Congress will acknowledge this type of provisional vote and address the issues this elector sought to raise, or whether they, too, will ignore provisional votes."

In North Carolina, Democratic electors and activists talked about local problems while Republicans voted inside. Elector Mary Roe mentioned problems she witnessed as an election observer in her own county. State officials admit that 4,500 votes disappeared in a computerized voting machine crash.

A Better World Is not only Possible, it’s Under Construction

A Better World Is not only Possible, it’s Under Construction! That’s the gift we give ourselves and the world when we stay engaged. Taking a break for the holidays to be with family and friends is important to renew our commitment and energy for the year ahead. The year was full of disappointments, but we’ve also laid solid foundations for the future. Consider the tens of thousands of people who came out to support free and fair elections in 2004. Many are still working on the front lines to ensure all our votes are counted, pressure Congress to make the needed reforms in our imperfect electoral system, and be a visible force to bring about the changes we need. Take heart in what we’ve accomplished this year and face the New Year with renewed optimism about our movement for peace and justice. We’re energized, organized and mobilized!

As the New Year approaches, make a New Year’s resolution to be the most effective activist you can be! Here are three important actions:

January 3: Pro-Democracy Count Every Vote Rally in Columbus, Ohio.

January 6: Act on Election Violations as Congress Meets to Certify the Vote!

January 20: Mark Bush’s inauguration by inaugurating the Second term of the Peace and Justice Movement.

January 3 - Join The Rev. Jesse Jackson and the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition, along with a coalition of grassroots organizations from across the nation, including CodePink, in a “Pro Democracy Count Every Vote Rally,” in Columbus, Ohio.

The rally will be held at the Capitol Theater, 77 S. High St, across from Ohio State Capitol, starting at 2 p.m. Coalition partners include Ohio Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs-Jones, Moveon.org, Progressive Democrats of America, the anti-war coalition United for Peace and Justice, and the Green Party. For more information link to:
//www.codepinkalert.org/Press_Room_jessejacksonrally.shtml

January 6 - Take Action on Election Violations as Congress Meets to Certify the Vote! URGE PROGRESSIVE SENATORS TO TAKE A STAND ON JAN. 6, WHEN CONGRESS MEETS TO CERTIFY THE VOTE.

On January 6, 2005, Congress will meet in joint session to certify the 2004 presidential election. On that day, if one member of the House and one member of the Senate object to the certification of the vote, then all members of Congress will finally discuss these issues. On January 6, 2001, not a single Senator would join with the Representatives who demanded an inquiry into the Florida recount. This year, let’s make our Senators take a stand!

The following seven Senators are some of the most progressive members of the Senate. Please call them immediately, and urge them to defend democracy on January 6. *SPREAD THE WORD TO PEOPLE YOU KNOW TO DO THE SAME UNTIL JANUARY 6.*

Senator Barbara Boxer, (202) 224-3553, senator@boxer.senate.gov

Senator Dick Durbin, (202) 224-2152, dick@durbin.senate.gov

Senator Russ Feingold, (202) 224-5323, russ_feingold@feingold.senate.gov

Senator Tom Harkin, (202) 224-3254, tom_harkin@harkin.senate.gov

Senator Jim Jeffords, (202) 224-5141, Vermont@jeffords.senate.gov

Senator Edward Kennedy, 202/224-4543, senator@kennedy.senate.gov

ON JANUARY 6, PROTEST IN WASHINGTON, DC AND AT SENATORS’ OFFICES IN YOUR OWN COMMUNITY.

While our Senators and Representatives are inside Congress, tallying the electoral college vote, We the People must have a presence outside, bringing attention to the disenfranchisement, suppression and fraud that pervaded the 2004 election and demanding real reforms to extend and protect democracy in America. Please join us at a vigil and rally on January 6th to demonstrate our support for our leaders inside.

Check //www.nov3.us or //www.counter-inaugural.org for more information.

If you can’t come to DC, we urge you to organize a protest outside a Senator’s office in your community, and list your event at //www.nov3.us .

January 20 – Reminder to inaugurate the second term of the Peace and Justice movement by participating in a counter-inauguration. Make your reservations, pack your pink, and join us in Washington D.C. Sign up to join CODEPINK on January 20th:
//www.codepink.kintera.org/inaugural CODEPINK action plans for the counter-inauguration in Washington, DC will be updated regularly.

Do not concede the election to George Bush

The Cobb-LaMarche Campaign
Working to Make Every Vote Count!

From: Sheri Myers
Date: Wed Dec 22, 2004 02:57:32 PM CST
Subject: Rev. Jackson: "Don't let Santa Claus block us from a Revolution!" (& Fraud DVD dates)

That's what Rev. Jackson told us, the organizers of the upcoming Ohio 1/03 and the DC 1/06 Voters Rights Rallies. "We must keep the drums beating!"

I realize it may be extremely inconvenient during the Holidays to take action on the Voter Fraud issue. But imagine how inconvenient it is, to stand in the cold and rain for 3 hours, then be denied the right to vote. Then, to see your child or grandchild shipped off to Iraq.... and not have any say in the matter.

Perhaps you feel that contesting the election is a lost cause. Please remember that at certain critical points in every struggle for human rights, all did seem lost, before the tide turned. Why did it turn? Because some people refused to give up.

We can be brave together. Come, join the citizens of this country who do not concede the election to George Bush. We need your support. We need you to show up, and stand with us.

Reverend Jackson has called for a massive rally in Columbus, Ohio on January 3. The details of time and venue will be set later today. Go to our website:
//www.wedonotconcede.com to stay abreast of all the latest develoments. If you live in the midwest, come. If you can hold an affinity rally in your state, do. This rally kicks off the most important week in our nation's history.

On Wednesday, 1/05/05, at 4:00 a,m, the 30+ Contestants against the certification of the Ohio Electors will board a bus for D.C. They will speak from their hearts on the steps of the Capitol, before visiting the offices of Senators, who, we all hope, will oppose the certification of the Bush presidency on 1/06.

Read their petition, look at their evidence:
//www.freepress.org/departments/display/19/2004/990

This is our last, best hope. Help us deliver these valiant Ohioans to DC. Help us pay their way. We need $10,000 immediately, to cover the costs of transport, hotels, and meals.

I am working with We Do Not Concede to make all the arrangements. It's not a big, wealthy coalition, folks, it's just two moms with determination. We have no money right now, and my stomach aches at the thought of putting another activist action on my credit card. But, I'm committed.

If everyone who reads this, goes immediately to
//www.donotconcede.com and contributes at least $20...or more... I can call Rev. Moss in Ohio and say, let your people know we are DEFINITELY going to DC. We can alert the media.

Those of you who received a Voter Fraud kit through me, a lot of you got it for free, because you said you would spread the word of the horrific Voter Suppression in Columbus on 11/02. I am NOT wealthy!
I need support so I can keep on keeping on. Go to

If my reports from the RNC, Florida, or Ohio have kept you clued in, or moved you in any way, come on, show your appreciation. I don't expect to make money at this, but I really hate going into debt. And that's a fact. Aside from my own expenses, I've got to raise $$ for our hip hop CD: We Do Not Concede.

Do it now, don't let Santa Claus stomp out the work we are trying to do. Your patriotic elves are toiling away at their keyboards, and on their phones in the wee hours, doing everything they can to salvage this fraudulent election.

Onward!

Exchange On David Cobb and the Ohio Recount

by Blair Bobier, Joshua Frank and Sunil K. Sharma

To the Editor: Joshua Frank's article about the Ohio recount is rife with lies, innuendo and inaccuracies. This should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with Frank's smear tactics, sloppy "reporting" and his personal vendetta against the 2004 Green Party presidential campaign. Frank writes that "something is fishy in the air in Ohio" and that Greens "should be outraged" over the Cobb-LaMarche campaign's fundraising for the recount....

God, Fear, and George W. Bush

by Steven Hass

Although it pains me to no end, I may finally have to give George W. Bush (or at least his handlers) some positive credit for the first time in his presidency. Call me slow, but I just realized why he plays the "religion" card so often, and how he plays it so effectively. To echo a popular slogan: it's the fear factor, stupid....

Have Yourself a “Moral” Little Christmas

by Leslie Sheridan

Dear Fellow Humans:

At this time of year, more than any other, we are reminded of some of the better characteristics associated with being human: acceptance, charity, compassion, love, selflessness, etc. This year, we have been especially reminded of “morality” and “family values.” However, “morality” and “family values” it seems, have been hijacked from what I remember them being as a kid. Webster's defines “moral” as: ethical, right behavior, sanctioned or operative of one’s conscience, virtuous and noble. Mmm ... If Santa and/or God are making a list and checking it twice, the US did not do well last year, and is certainly not doing well on moral values this year either....

SPEECH BY RON PAUL BEFORE HOUSE OF REPS ON SEPT 23, 2004

Please forward this to everyone you know.


Mr. Speaker,

the U.S. Constitution is the most unique and best contract ever drawn up between a people and their government throughout history. Though flawed from the beginning because all men are flawed, it nevertheless has served us well and set an example for the entire world. Yet no matter how hard the authors tried, the inevitable corrupting influence of power was not thwarted by the Constitution. The notion of separate states and local government championed by the followers of Jefferson was challenged by the Hamiltonians almost immediately following the ratification of the Constitution. Early on, the supporters of strong centralized government promoted central banking, easy credit, protectionism, mercantilism and subsidies for corporate interests.

Although the nineteenth century generally was kind to the intent of the Constitution, namely, limiting government power, a major setback occurred with the Civil War and the severe undermining of the principle of Sovereign States. The Civil War profoundly changed the balance of power in our federal system paving the way for centralized big government.
Although the major principle underlying the Constitutional Republic we were given was compromised in the Post-Civil War period, it was not until the twentieth century that steady and significant erosion of the Constitutional restraints placed on the central government occurred. With the erosion it not only affected economic and civil liberties but foreign affairs as well.

We now have persistent abuse of the Constitution by the executive, legislative and judicial branches. Our legislative leaders in Washington demonstrate little concern for the rule of law, liberty and our republican form of government. Today the pragmatism of the politicians as they spend more than two trillion dollars annually create legislative chaos. The vultures consume the carcass of liberty without remorse. On the contrary we hear politicians brag insistently about their ability to deliver benefits to their districts thus qualifying themselves for automatic re-election.

The real purpose of the Constitution was the preservation of liberty, but our government...while spending endlessly, taxing and regulating. The complacent electorate who are led to believe their interest and needs are best served by a huge bureaucratic welfare state convince themselves that enormous federal deficits and destructive inflation can be dealt with on another day.

The answer to the dilemma of unconstitutional government and runaway spending is simple - restore a burning conviction in the hearts and minds of the people that freedom works and that government largest is a fraud. When the PEOPLE once again regain their confidence in the benefits of liberty and demand it from their elected leaders, Congress will act appropriately. The response of honorable men and women who represent us should be simply to take their oaths of office seriously, vote accordingly and return our nation to its proper republican origin. The result would be economic prosperity, greater personal liberty, honest money, abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and a world made more peaceful when we abandon the futile policy of building and policing an American empire.

No longer would we yield our sovereignty to international organizations that act outside of the restraint placed on the government by the Constitution. The Constitution and those who have sworn to uphold it are not perfect and it is understandable that abuse occurs - but it should not be acceptable. Without meticulous adherence to the principle of the rule of law, minor infractions become commonplace and the Constitution looses all meaning. Unfortunately that is where we are today.

The nonsense that the Constitution is a living, flexible document taught as gospel in most of our public schools must be challenged. The Founders were astute enough to recognize the Constitution was not perfect and widely permitted amendments to the document but they correctly made the process tedious and difficult. Without a renewed love for liberty and confidence in its results it will be difficult if not impossible to restore once again the rule of law under the Constitution.

I have heard throughout my life how each upcoming election is the most important election ever and how the very future of our country is at stake. Those fears have always been grossly overstated. The real question is not who will achieve the next partisan victory. The real question is whether or not we will once again accept the clear restraint placed upon the power of the national government by the Constitution. Obviously the jury is still out on this issue.

However, what we choose to do about this Constitutional crisis is the most important in an election of our time and the results will determine the kind of society our children will inherit. I believe it is worthwhile for all of us to tirelessly pursue the preservation of the elegant Constitution with which we have been blessed.
