Ron Paul Responds To Obama’s State Of The Union Speech

“President Obama claims to want an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules. Yet he remains committed to the same old system of debt, deficits, bailouts, and cronyism that created our economic problems.

The PATRIOT Act, as bad is its violation of the 4th Amendment, was just one step down the slippery slope.

The remark also revived the long-running liberal charge that Mitt Romney paradoxically believes in global warming yet won’t do anything to help combat it.

House Votes To Defund IPCC

For example, famed Princeton University physicist Dr. Robert Austin, who has published 170 scientific papers and was elected a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Austin told a congressional committee that, unfortunately, climate has become a political science.
