"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Watching Paul I had to remind myself this special order speech was 17 years ago! It's almost as if Paul were entering in the public record the current conversation we're having on the fedgov/Bundy dispute. I also had to wonder if it's coincidence that Mark Levin recently did a segment based on the same information Paul references from the Joseph Farah story.

Anyway, this Paul message is as conservative and prescient as anything ever said from the right.  And yet to the establishment (right and left) Ron Paul's a kook. Makes me wonder if those of us on the right aren't just as easily distracted by media misdirection as the rest. Just rhetorical. Based on the Bundy conversation, I think I know the answer.
