Once again, Ron Paul stands up as the lone voice for freedom in our wasteland of a Marxist federal government gone amok over the last few decades...

Republican Rep. Ron Paul of Texas is standing up for the founder of WikiLeaks, going against many of his Republican colleagues by defending Assange's leaks of secret American documents.

In a Thursday interview with Fox Business, Paul said that Julian Assange should get the same kind of protections as the mainstream media when it comes to releasing information.

"In a free society we're supposed to know the truth," Paul said. "In a society where truth becomes treason, then we're in big trouble. And now, people who are revealing the truth are getting into trouble for it."

"This is media, isn't it? I mean, why don't we prosecute The New York Times or anybody that releases this?" he added.

Many of Paul's Republican colleagues have voiced their outrage towards Assange, including former Gov. Mike Huckabee, who said Tuesday that the site's founder should be tried for treason and even face the death penalty. Democrats have also been vocal critics of Assange.

Indeed, the founder has few friends in Washington, with lawmakers lamenting the negative impact the release of the hundreds of thousands of private cables could have on national security.

On Thursday, Attorney General Eric Holder said that the Justice Department is weighing whether Assange could be criminally charged for posting the documents.

Paul is no stranger to unpopular stances, and has split with his parties on issues like the war in Afghanistan, the role of the Federal Reserve and America's membership in NATO. His son Rand Paul, a Republican Tea Party favorite, was elected to the Senate from Kentucky last month.

As my friend Stephen T. McCarthy has said many times, "Two Paul's are better than one!"


  1. Oh, yes indeed, Brother DISCMAN!
    It's a terrible, terrible thing when, in Representative Government, the peasants get a glimpse of what the Luciferians at the top are doing in the name of "We The People".

    It would probably surprise many to learn that in 1948, the Freemason president, Harry "Go To Hell!" Truman, put into effect with the stroke of a pen, a secrecy order that denied information in State Dept. and FBI security files to the members of Congress who were attempting to investigate the extent of communist infiltration into the Federal Government.

    Yes, hiding from the American People, and those individuals elected to represent them, important information about what is being done in their name has a long and disgusting history here in the United Socialist States of America.

  2. Initially I was in the camp that Assange should be muzzled and brought to some kind of justice, but as I've thought about this more I've started to lean in Paul's direction. Were the leaks that big of a deal and why shouldn't there be more openess anyway. Maybe it's time for a lot of backroom stuff to stop. The U.S. should come up with clear plans and stick to them without having to make all kinds of weird deals.

  3. Stephen-

    I believe we're using the moniker "United States' Socialist Republic" on this blog...


    The problem becomes where do you stop the muzzling and whose judgement will you trust to make the call? Our friends at TSA? The postal service?

    Maybe we can have NFL referees moonlight in this capacity....
