Current Political Philosophies’ Errors to Result in Political and Economic Crisis
Congressional Record – U.S. House of Representatives
Ron Paul speaking September 20, 1984

The strict limitation of government power imposed by the Constitution must be respected. We must accept the principle that government’s function is not to regulate the economy, protect us from ourselves, arbitarily attempt to make us better people, or police the world by interfering in the internal affairs of other nations. Its proper function in a free society is to protect liberty and provide for common defense.
