Opinion (Ron Paul, American physician, author, and former Member of the U.S. House of Representatives): “Former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul doesn’t see a rosy future ahead for the United States. In fact, he sees a repeat of recent history – though not U.S. history – on the horizon.’’
“‘They’re (Washington collectively) not going to work their way out of it, so it’s just (all) going to collapse,’ he said. …
“The physician-lawmaker also said recent polling showing a distinct lack of trust by the American people in their government was ‘a good thing.’
“‘Because that means that now they’ll quit believing the government,’ he told Jones. ‘I mean, they don’t trust the government, they don’t believe the government, the government always lies to them… whether its foreign policy or domestic policy.’
“‘Just think how quickly the Soviet system disappeared. I think that was the greatest miracle, or event at least, in the twentieth century’ that nobody saw coming.
“‘You know, the day before, the month before, the year before, if someone would have said, “Oh, you know, next year,” the Soviet system would be gone, everybody would have considered that person nuts. But it was fragile, and it fell apart, and quickly, and thank goodness we didn’t have to have a nuclear war in order to get rid of the Soviet system.”
“‘We’re probably in 1987, where the Soviets were in ’87, in two years they were gone,’ he said.”
