ron paul is questioning

This is hardly new, but I only recently stumbled upon it on these here intertubes. The original What If? speech by Ron Paul made on the House floor back in February of 2009 is good enough. However, the remixed version benefits from the power of music and the graphics are perhaps neutral. I really like the pace of the music, especially during the first minute.

I cannot fully endorse Paul as a politician for some of his views that I disagree with, but we need voices of dissent like his if our political system is to work correctly. Sadly, we seem to be on the verge of electing back into some power the very people who ran us aground, but have repackaged themselves as 'new' and 'different' and 'outsiders'. Sigh.

didn't high school teach you anything? Dissent is unpopular. So is voting for someone who isn't going to win. Even if they have better, more effective ideas.

Unfortunately, people don't seem to grow out of this mentality.
