Ron Paul in Texas Monthly
 
 

“We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth... Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not...? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.”
             — Patrick Henry

 
athered from a variety of sources, the articles below shed much-
  needed light on facts seldom reported in the popular media, taught by
  most of academia, or acknowledged by the U.S. federal government.  The combined effect of these writers reveals how severely the popular American mindset has been conditioned to substitute popularized myths and baseless notions for such historical facts and common-sense principles as were defined in the U.S. Constitution in the first place. 

Those who pursue a course of open-minded inquiry are sure to be rewarded with greater insight and knowledge concerning both Americas distant history and her recent past, particularly with respect to the nature and conduct of the U.S. federal government and those who conduct its affairs.  May knowledge of the truth compel them to take a positive action for the sake of her future.

  American Imperialism & Interventionism

Imperialism is the pursuit of power and prestige abroad, by
 means of wealth plundered from subjects at home—a practice
 of the U.S. government for well over a century now.

  ‘Bipartisan’ Statist Fleecing of America

The “Two-Party System” in the U.S. has become one of the most
 subtle—yet effective—instruments of plunder in modern history,
 wherein the public is kept polarized over a contrived “left-right”
 political dichotomy, while the federal government ignores the
 Constitution and confiscates their property.

  FDR & ‘New Deal’ Myths

The federal government, not free enterprise, caused the 1929
stock-market crash and the Great Depression.  FDR only prolonged the subsequent misery.  His programs—heavily popularized by statists and socialists (both then and now)—foisted on a naïve American public the false security of tax-and-spend big government.

  IRS — The Federal Tax Fraud

The word “income” in the 16th Amendment did not refer to wages and salaries, and the Supreme Court has affirmed it to grant no new taxing authority to Congress, and therefore especially no authority to tax wages and salaries.  In doing so anyway, the IRS engages in intimidation and obfuscation to perpetuate a government fraud of the highest order.
