Dr. Ron Paul may no longer be a congressman, but he still understands the core problems facing the United States of America.

Despite President Obama’s promises for a better, more prosperous future for our country, as with his previous State of the Union addresses, it was light on substance and heavy on the rhetoric.

If you’re one of those who feel that hope and change has turned to despair and more of the same, you’re not alone.

Ron Paul is right there with you.

I didn’t come out of that very optimistic. It was rather depressing.

It was terrible. It’s like a circus…

The jumping up and down and the ritual they go through… it sounds like the world’s been saved. If you had walked in, just being on that floor, it would be so distorted. But that’s about the way Washington is. It’s so distorted. They live in their own little bubble and they don’t know that there’s anybody like you who might have questions about what’s going on in this country.

And, certainly, we didn’t get any answers tonight.

The truth is, after listening to a speech like that, we should be convinced that this spending isn’t going to quit before we have a calamity.

That’s what I think is going to happen.

But that doesn’t mean we should stop trying to change people’s minds.

But, to think that next year or two years from now we’re going to have more members of Congress and we’re finally going to come to our senses and we’re going to vote against some of this largess for all the special interests, and that we’re going to bring our troops home, and they’re going to repeal and restrain the President from assassinating American citizens — his so called right to do that — that’s not going to happen.

There’s going to be a serious problem — economic and a crisis here…

I think it’s inevitable…

Video Interview With John Stossel (Via: SGT ReportADG UK News:

After 35 years in Congress, Ron Paul says that it all got worse — spending always went up, government got bigger, more wars, more printing of money, more power the to The Fed, and more central economic planning.

Now, after decades of government interference, we will, as a nation, experience the blow back.

A three year old with a pocket calculator can figure out we’ve got a one way ticket to collapse.

At this point, there is no fixing it.

Nature will take its course and the economic, financial, and political free markets will soon correct the imbalance.

As Dr. Paul warns, it’s inevitable.
