Farewell Speech 11-14-2012
The ideas in this speech will change the course of human history when they become fully understood. This is a concise and simple summary of the best course to peace, prosperity, and liberty for all of mankind. When we understand these ideas we will be baffled that the American people missed the chance to implement this agenda by electing Ron Paul as President of the United States.
To achieve liberty and peace, two powerful human emotions have to be overcome.
Number one is “envy” which leads to hate and class warfare. Number two is “intolerance” which leads to bigoted and judgmental policies. These emotions must be replaced with a much better understanding of love, compassion, tolerance and free market economics. Freedom, when understood, brings people together. When tried, freedom is popular.
We have been forced to choose between the “lesser of two evils” usually involving economic interventionists swayed by envy, or social interventionists swayed by intolerance of habits and lifestyles. The misunderstanding that tolerance is an endorsement of certain activities, motivates many to legislate moral standards which should only be set by individuals making their own choices. Both sides use force to deal with these misplaced emotions. Both are authoritarians. Neither endorses voluntarism. Both views ought to be rejected.
I have come to one firm conviction after these many years of trying to figure out “the plain truth of things.” The best chance for achieving peace and prosperity, for the maximum number of people world-wide, is to pursue the cause of LIBERTY.
If you find this to be a worthwhile message, spread it throughout the land.

Thomas Jefferson said:
“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”
I add to this:
“The battle for freedom is never won, and is never lost.
The battle for freedom always continues.
It is never too late, and it is never soon enough, to defend freedom.
No matter how enslaved we are, we always have hope.
No matter how free we are we are never safe.
NOTHING EVER LIMITS THE GOVERNMENT, EXCEPT THE PEOPLE.
Any generation that fails to defend freedom will lose it.
The next generation will have to shed blood to gain it back” John Perna
The defense of liberty is a lifetime project.
When the defense of liberty becomes a crime, tyranny is already in force. At that point, failure to defend liberty makes slavery at certainty. John Perna
Regardless of the vote fraud, and the dirty tricks at conventions, the cause of liberty will persist until victory. After victory the defense of liberty will continue.
