Ron Paul argued accepting the idea of vaccine passports means accepting the idea that the government owns your life, body, and freedom on Monday’s edition of the ‘Ron Paul Liberty Report.’ Read his full monologue below:
RON PAUL: I think the vaccine passports might be the one that, or hopefully, that the people finally wake up. That’s enough. I am not going to put up with a passport identifier in my body. I mean that is a sacrifice — that solidifies the whole concept that our lives belong to the government.
I always said the military draft was a symbol of who owns our bodies and the Internal Revenue Service because they own everything and allow you how to spend it. They own liberty and now you are going to get permission to use a little bit of it. They are going to divvy it out a little bit. You’ll never get back what you should have. But that is what’s happening.
This is their guide for how to do it. Where you go, what you do, what store you can go in, what baseball game you can go, where you can go to school.
If this is not stopped — it is true, the people who are making these dire predictions about how bad things are going to get. If this continues, it is going to be bad. Right now, there is an effort, there is still an ability for us to speak out, if nothing else, one-on-one, talk to friends…
If we stick to our guns and speak the truth and tell and warn people and put it in a moral tone. You have to have a basic principle of what life and liberty is.
The government doesn’t give us our liberty and that is what they are teaching us now. They are giving us our liberty back one piece at a time. But I can guarantee you one thing, if you think you are going to get all your liberty back by one piece at a time, it ain’t going to happen. This is why we have to take a stand — vaccine passports, that can’t be allowed to go on because that makes it even worse. But the whole rest has to stop.
