Video: Armed Chinese Troops in Texas!


It is important to separate hunting down terrorists who attack our country and deserve justice (which Ron Paul is 100% for), and not confuse justice with occupying entire countries for a decade under the guise of the “War on Terror” or “Spreading Democracy”. Terrorists are individuals and small groups, so why are we picking fights with entire nations? BILLIONS for Defense, NOT A PENNY for Empire.

This speech is called “Imagine” and it was given by Ron Paul on March 11, 2009. The original text of the talk is below:


Imagine for a moment that somewhere in the middle of Texas there was a large foreign military base, say Chinese or Russian. Imagine that thousands of armed foreign troops were constantly patrolling American streets in military vehicles. Imagine they were here under the auspices of “keeping us safe” or “promoting democracy” or “protecting their strategic interests.”

Imagine that they operated outside of US law, and that the Constitution did not apply to them. Imagine that every now and then they made mistakes or acted on bad information and accidentally killed or terrorized innocent Americans, including women and children, most of the time with little to no repercussions or consequences. Imagine that they set up checkpoints on our soil and routinely searched and ransacked entire neighborhoods of homes. Imagine if Americans were fearful of these foreign troops, and overwhelmingly thought America would be better off without their presence.

Imagine if some Americans were so angry about them being in Texas that they actually joined together to fight them off, in defense of our soil and sovereignty, because leadership in government refused or were unable to do so. Imagine that those Americans were labeled terrorists or insurgents for their defensive actions, and routinely killed, or captured and tortured by the foreign troops on our land. Imagine that the occupiers’ attitude was that if they just killed enough Americans, the resistance would stop, but instead, for every American killed, ten more would take up arms against them, resulting in perpetual bloodshed. Imagine if most of the citizens of the foreign land also wanted these troops to return home. Imagine if they elected a leader who promised to bring them home and put an end to this horror.

Imagine if that leader changed his mind once he took office.

The reality is that our military presence on foreign soil is as offensive to the people that live there as armed Chinese troops would be if they were stationed in Texas. We would not stand for it here, but we have had a globe-straddling empire and a very intrusive foreign policy for decades that incites a lot of hatred and resentment towards us.

According to our own CIA, our meddling in the Middle East was the prime motivation for the horrific attacks on 9/11. But instead of re-evaluating our foreign policy, we have simply escalated it. We had a right to go after those responsible for 9/11, to be sure, but why do so many Americans feel as if we have a right to a military presence in some 160 countries when we wouldn’t stand for even one foreign base on our soil, for any reason? These are not embassies, mind you, these are military installations. The new administration is not materially changing anything about this. Shuffling troops around and playing with semantics does not accomplish the goals of the American people, who simply want our men and women to come home. 50,000 troops left behind in Iraq is not conducive to peace any more than 50,000 Russian soldiers would be in the United States.

Shutting down military bases and ceasing to deal with other nations with threats and violence is not isolationism. It is the opposite. Opening ourselves up to friendship, honest trade and diplomacy is the foreign policy of peace and prosperity. It is the only foreign policy that will not bankrupt us in short order, as our current actions most definitely will. I share the disappointment of the American people in the foreign policy rhetoric coming from the administration. The sad thing is, our foreign policy WILL change eventually, as Rome’s did, when all budgetary and monetary tricks to fund it are exhausted.

    This is a very powerful video and shows how the USA under the ZOG has become a
    force for evil in this world…..we need to take our country back and we will
    need our military home in order to do that! They have been lied to and used as well by the
    top brass and the congress.

    the choices are clear for America and every other nation :

    1- peace and trade with other nation, prosperity
    2- illegal wars for Israel benefit, bankruptcy

    they choose 2, they deal with the consequences, you cant kill people and in the same time ask them to buy your products and goods, occupy their countries and ask them to be your friends, Talmudist satanist Israel will be the end of America if they don’t wake up and get over this holohoax-like bullshit called 9/11

    Hence the old old story, if the boot was on the other foot.
    Remember that every country the west has “helped” just so happened to have the resources thst the west will need.
    Our Politicians in ALL the west have made ALL of us to look like nothing but a bunch of deceiving & lying hypocrites to the rest of the world.
    Thinking of that I suppose we ALL truly are, after all we keep on electing them, there just called a different name BUT the lies, the deceit & hypocracy are ALL well & truly there.
    The last few years have been the only time in my 53 years where I truly have become worried about the future & believe that if people do not quickly realise what course we are being driven on we will lose the privilege of being able to change it.
    If this doesn’t scare everyone average person, well perhaps we don’t deserve the privilege.
    Please THINK !
