RON PAUL IN HIS OWN WORDS:


On his belief that the Constitution no longer is at the center of the government: "Ninety-nine percent of everything in the Constitution is to restrict the federal government — it's not to restrain the people. And yet today the people are being restrained and the government isn't restrained. And the people no longer have their privacy and the government has all the secrecy"

On his belief that the war in Iraq is unconstitutional because Congress didn't provide a declaration of war: "If you give up one part of the Constitution, you give up the whole thing because it becomes arbitrary for the executive branch and the judicial branch and the legislative branch. And that's where we are — we are an arbitrary government today. The government does what they please with no restraint"

On his campaign drawing supporters from across the political spectrum: "There is only one thing — the Constitution and freedom — that brings people together. And it's not divisive. We are not confrontational and we're very tolerant of other people's views. That's why individuals can come no matter what views they have"

On the Federal Reserve injecting more than $100 billion of extra liquidity into the banking system to stabilize a stock market rattled by the U.S. subprime mortgage implosion: "Who is going to pay for that? The taxpayer will pay for that. The people in the financial markets that took all these risks, they are getting bailed out. I think the average guy knows a lot more about that than anybody gives them credit for"

On his campaign: "In many ways what we are doing is sort of a stealth campaign. Maybe ignoring us for a while isn't all that bad, as long as we do the work and show up with the votes"
