Ron Paul Speaks Up for Individual Rights on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal


In the last three minutes of his 45-minute Tuesday interview on the C-SPAN Washington Journal call-in show, Ron Paul Institute Chairman Ron Paul made a brief and resolute statement regarding individual rights. The statement underlies much of Paul’s discussion during the program of matters ranging from the United States governments’ foreign interventions to the Federal Reserve to search and seizure abuses.

Regarding rights, Paul states:
Governments don’t have rights; they have obligations. Only people have rights, and they’re individual, and they’re not designed by belonging to a particular group.
Watch here the complete program in which Paul, a former US House of Representatives member and three-time presidential candidate, discusses many issues of the day with an eye toward protecting individual rights:
