Ron Paul Condemns HR 1955

Remarks on Violent Radicalization & Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act, HR 1955

by Ron Paul

Before the House of Representatives, December 5, 2007

Mr. Speaker, I regret that I was unavoidably out of town on October 23, 2007, when a vote was taken on HR 1955, the Violent Radicalization & Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act. Had I been able to vote, I would have voted against this misguided and dangerous piece of legislation. This legislation focuses the weight of the US government inward toward its own citizens under the guise of protecting us against "violent radicalization."

I would like to note that this legislation was brought to the floor for a vote under suspension of regular order. These so-called "suspension" bills are meant to be non-controversial, thereby negating the need for the more complete and open debate allowed under regular order. It is difficult for me to believe that none of my colleagues in Congress view HR 1955, with its troubling civil liberties implications, as "non-controversial."

Ron Paul in Ann Arbor

Here's great footage we captured in Ann Arbor a couple months ago. You can hear the passion and conviction in his voice.

Thank You

Thank you very much for posting this video, BoDeeDoe. It enjoyed it very much.

This goes a little ways...

However, Paul's blatant votes against impeaching Cheney are unacceptable. I don't give a damn about procedures, it was the wrong thing to do.

When it came to weaseling out, in favor of party unity, Paul ended up on the wrong side.

Ya, I agree...

I wonder why he won't support Cheney's impeachment. However, despite that flaw he is by far the biggest supporter of the Constitution and the principles of liberty among the main candidates.
Libertarians believe that it is not right to take forcefully from one person in order to provide for another's needs. Welfare for those in need should be provided through voluntary means. Forcing others to "give" is not just or generous.

The Paul puzzle

>he is by far the biggest supporter of the Constitution

Is that why he wants a Constitutional amendment to put prayer in the schools? Look it up people, it's a fact, and it's opposite to the Constitution, which was based on the separation between church and state.

>>Welfare for those in need should be provided through voluntary means.

Yeah, you know the rich will be lining up to "give," just like they're lining up for "justice."

That's a policy that's a Clinton and Bush dream.


Paul didn't "vote for his party" with the cheney thing.
You've got to look at the reason he gave for voting it down.
He did not believe the impeachment process was being done properly. He is more opposed to cheney than most of congress, but knew this bill would go no where as it was written.

Hello all,


On International Human Rights Day, Monday December 10th, there will be a demonstration against the "thoughtcrimes bill" outside Senator Hillary Clinton's office at 780 Third Ave @ 48th Street in Manhattan @ 12-1.30 pm. Also, it's ultra important that people call her office at (212) 688-6262 because she hasn't received many calls so far on this urgent issue according to the aide I spoke to this past Wed. This action on Monday has been posted on NYC Indymedia at Also, call Schumer's office at (212) 486-4430.
