Ron Paul Explains What’s Changed 241 Years after the First Independence Day

Former Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) is a student of history and he is a lover of liberty. Those two topics came together this week as he discussed the July 4th Independence Day holiday on his show the Ron Paul Liberty Report.

While the Founders understood the dangers of forming a new government, they also knew the risks of remaining with a corrupt and tyrannical regime (such as the one that was ruling over us in 1776). Sadly, many of the safeguards that they put into place 240+ years ago, are now being eroded by new versions of the Mad King George III. Instead of living and ruling from London, these new despots reside in Washington, D.C.

From the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity:

Thomas Jefferson got so many things correct in his draft of the Declaration of Independence. From the opening to the conclusion, the blueprint for a free and prosperous confederation of independent states was laid out. Many things have gone wrong since then…but in many areas we have made progress! In today’s Liberty Report, Ron Paul breaks down where we are some 241 years after that fateful day…

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
