Is President Trump Protecting Us From Socialism?

During President Trump’s latest State of The Union speech, he stated that “America will never be a socialist country.” However, America is bankrupt precisely because of the massive Socialist policies that it already has. The president then went on to advocate a few new Socialist policies of his own! Ron Paul discusses on today’s Liberty Report!

The USA has been a socialist country since 1913 when it adopted the progressive income tax illegally. The SCOTUS ruled on three separate occasions that an income tax is unconstitutional to no avail. They ruled that the 16th amendment gave the government "no new powers of taxation". So they responded by saying that it's a 'voluntary' tax. Stop paying it then you socialist hypocrites. Ron Paul knows all this.

They will always tell you they are protecting you when they are actually protecting THEMSELVES. They desperately need you to confuse your interests with theirs.

Don't forget about the socialized petroleum industry, with $5,4 trillion handed to them by government each year – for free! Trump is bending over back for this socialized industry. Well…cost socialized…profits private.There's also socialized slavery, where the government can own slaves if it convicts a human being of any crime the government can think of convicted each person for.You don't seem to understand how it is for most of Americans. The wealth income distribution system of the US Congress has impoverished most Americans, handing out conjured money to the ruling class. The massive amount of conjured currency should lead to… Read more »

Our national debt is merely conjured money. We can conjure more to pay it off. The only problem is maintaining the value of these federal reserve notes. We currently maintain the value of these debt notes with our Military – bombs and blood. We used to have a currency backed by gold, not blood.

The government does so much for the upper classes. The government used to help the middle class some, just so they would keep the lower classes in line.
The Trickle Down Fairy religion that Reagan/Thatcher launched – neo-liberalism – has stolen everything from most Americans and handed it to a few rich, white dudes, like Bezos, Gates, etc….
I'm not sure how the upper class plans on protecting itself if it keeps stealing from all of us more and more?!?!?

We do not want to be a socialist country. The democrates are the ones that have done this. Make them pay back the billions of billions that they stole from the taxpayers. Have obama get the planes full of cash back. Or make him pay it back. The real cause is DEMOCRATES. GET RID OF THEM ALL OF THEM.

You want to find out who REALLY owns your property? Don't pay your property taxes and you'll find out pretty soon!

Mixed economies clearly do work, that's what we've always had. Socialism for things like roads, police, schools and food safety. Today's "socialists" want to add healthcare to that as a first priority. I don't see anything wrong with that. If you want to push a free market ideology, start with repealing farm and oil subsidies and other forms of crony capitalism. Someone getting free or low-cost healthcare is about as offensive to the free market as someone getting a free public defender in the court system (It's not).

Having free medical care paid by tax money is Not socialism it's Nationalism All EU nations have that including United Kingdom 🇬🇧 Free Medical treatment is also your Basic Human Right. Only Greedy Helth Insurance companies and drug manufacturers opposes that.

You Americans have a very weird understanding of Socialism! You obviously don't understand the sence of it at all! I could only make a recommendation to read some works of German Philosophers Erich From!

Not if one believes everything government does is Socialism. If one uses the actual definition and policies of Socialist regimes, he's not advancing Socialism and is in fact contracting it so, yes, he is

Socialism = fascism. The government want to control every single little thing in our lives, even tell us what we can and cannot say and the unaccountable big tech corporations are censoring people if what they say doesn't fit THEIR agenda, that is NOT a democracy, that is TYRANNY.

Dr. Paul. Please invite Tulsi Gabbard on for an interview. I'd really like to have her clarify her stances while answering tough questions to see if she is aligned with our liberty principals on an unbiased show. Thanks.

The legit anti-isis forces are Syrians, Iranians, Turkish and Russians. If not them, then its kabbalist-takfiris coalition made ISIS/daesh. The other name for kabbalist-takfiris coalition is deepstate or military industrial complex for the interest of communist jews. Their new lie news is "democrat-russia" collusion. Very dishonest!!! No integrity at all!

Ron, I'm at a point you are just pissing me off. You have been saying the same thing forever, but doing nothing. You are making money telling the same story. Do something real! Crying on here at 80 is getting old. Liberty, blah blah blah. Can't you use your name, and position to really do something if you care? Ocasio Cortez seems to have more in than you right now, and she is gaining ground! Lets go Dr. Paul, or just shut up. You turned into the old man broken record. The old uncle at Christmas telling you the same… Read more »

Trump is violating section 6 of the Arms Export Control Act by selling arms to the Saudis, if this Feb 10 Fox News story is accurate;"Saudi Arabia threatens US over investigations into Khashoggi killing"The Act states that arms can't be sold to a nation which is engaged in intimidation or harassment against US persons. The Saudis transferring those arms to Al-Qaeda is also a violation of the Act and so is using the arms for purposes other than defense, section 4. Any one of those disqualifies them, take your pick. What are you going to do about it, Ron Paul?… Read more »

government spending will increase over a trillion dollars this year… I can't help but think, "it doesn't have to be this way." … so much for "draining the swamp" a slogan Donald Trump used when he ran for office. What is particularly bothersome is the increase in the military budget, the failure of pulling troops out of Syria as promised and the meddling foreign policy that will not promote peace but further instability. In the last presidential election, the person I would have like to have been president wasn't on the ballot (Ron Paul) so I wrote his name in… Read more »

I wish we could knock 30 years off of Ron Paul and keep him around a lot longer. Thankfully he keeps himself in great health and hopefully he's around for many more years

I see you like most Americans are misinformed on what socialism is. Here in Europe we have a much better understanding on what 'socialism' actually is in comparison to European-esque Social Democracy, in which social democrats (those comparable with the American Democratic Party) advocate for the redistribution of wealth and for various social programs in a capitalist economy. Really AOC and Bernie are capitalists with a liking for the welfare state which socialists like myself despise. Socialism however is not capitalist and typically functions on a cooperative or planned economy. I'd suggest you learn the difference between the two for… Read more »

as a person with a pre-exiting condition , I'd like to know how a insurance system that I had paid into for decades can just decide oh ok we no longer want to cover that. big pharma and the insurance companies as well as a list of other are raping the us citizens and our politicians are all just fine with it as long as the lobbyist keep bring in bags of cash ….. NOW THATS UNAMERICAN. and a direct conflict of them representing the people. taxation without representation is tyranny .
