Ron Paul: Obama’s ‘goal’ is economic collapse

 

By David Edwards and Stephen Webster

Ron Paul, the popular Republican Congressman from Texas, is ripping into the president and Congress for what he sees as their "goal" with round after round of stimulus: complete economic collapse.

"From their spending habits, an economic collapse seems to be the goal of Congress and this administration," he said in his June 22, 2009, weekly address.

He added that Democrats who voted for the president's war funding request, which gave an additional $106 billion to military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq — among other, unrelated items — were actually voting in favor of the wars, not just authorization of the president's agenda.

He called it an affront to everyone who believed a vote for Obama was a vote for a peace candidate.

The president's insistence on including an additional $108 billion in asset exchange with the International Monetary Fund is merely "buying global oppression," he said.

Paul added that, "this [bill sent] $660 million to Gaza, $555 million to Israel, $310 million to Egypt, $300 million to Jordan and $420 million to Mexico; and some $889 million will be sent to the United Nations for so-called peace keeping missions."

In other words, the latest U.S. war funding was an "International bailout," he said.
