At the Ron Paul Institute, Executive Director Daniel McAdams reminds readers of Dr. Ron Paul’s prescient warnings over the COVID martial law imposed by Dr. Anthony Fauci and other health bureaucrats. He notes that the CDC has just admitted that much of what it had been saying throughout the pandemic was wrong. He writes (abridged):
Dr. [Ron] Paul was prescient in 1988 when he warned about the FBI as a political weapon – as we’ve seen it again used this week against a former US President. But he also simply understood the truth about the nature of government: that the more of it we have, the more temptation for the elites to bend power to better fulfill their end-goal of total control. Politics is about power. It is war by other means.
In a similar vein, and almost under the radar, the CDC just announced that everything they had been demanding and telling us for the past two plus years has been a lie. It doesn’t matter if you stand six feet away from people, it doesn’t matter if you are vaccinated or unvaccinated. You don’t need to quarantine. Kids can stay in school if someone around them has contracted the ‘rona.
The CDC and the thugs around them are pretending that this is something new, that they suddenly understand “the Science” better. They will not admit that they were lying and manipulating all along in pursuit of power and money.
But Ron Paul understood from day one. He saw what was coming and he put it all on the line to fight the totalitarian tide. He wasn’t armed with a crystal ball. He was armed with an understanding of truth: Power corrupts.
As he wrote in the earliest days of the Covid scare, when the “experts” were shutting the country down:
If anything, what people like Fauci and the other fearmongers are demanding will likely make the disease worse. The martial law they dream about will leave people hunkered down inside their homes instead of going outdoors or to the beach where the sunshine and fresh air would help boost immunity
