Ron Paul: Still all about Abolishing the IRS!

From Eric Dondero:

As Ron Paul retires from Congress, his hometown newspaper, the Houston Chronicle has whipped up a nifty article titled, "The essential Ron Paul: 50 classic Ron Paul quotations." There's a smorgasboard of pro-liberty sentinments to choose from. My personal favorite:
“By the way, when I say cut taxes, I don’t mean fiddle with the code. I mean abolish the income tax and the IRS, and replace them with nothing.”
But here's a couple others that warm the heart:
“When one gets in bed with government, one must expect the diseases it spreads.”

“Don’t steal — the government hates competition!”
And Ron Paul the revolutionary:
“Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.”

“The foundation for a police state has been put in place and we must mobilize resistance before it’s too late.”
And even on foreign policy, where we pro-defensers often disagree with the congressman, you gotta halfway agree this one:
“9/11 had nothing to do with Iraq. Fifteen of the 19 [hijackers] came from Saudi Arabia — so they are our bosom buddies and we’re their best friends.”
As Paul says, 15 of them came from Saudi Arabia. Yet we dropped no bombs on Mecca or Medina.
