Rand Paul - Crime Is A Spiritual Problem Not A Racial Thing

Rand Paul in Chicago: Crime 'not a racial thing, it is a spiritual problem' 

Kentucky U.S. Sen. Rand Paul brought his presidential campaign to Chicago on Wednesday, appealing to African-Americans on the South Side, entrepreneurs downtown and Republicans in the suburbs.
Paul opened his speech by referring to the "black lives matter" refrain used by protesters after the controversial deaths of African-American men at the hands of police. Paul said the phrase reminds him of the deaths of Eric Garner, who was choked to death by officers in New York, and Freddie Gray, who was fatally injured in police custody in Baltimore. But Paul said the phrase also has meaning in Chicago.
"There is crime going on all across America. It is not a racial thing, it is a spiritual problem," Paul said. "I think government can play a role in public safety, but I don't think government can mend a broken spirit. Government can't provide you salvation, government can't save you. … Ultimately, salvation is something you accept yourselves."
He advocated for reclassifying nonviolent felonies to misdemeanors as part of his call to end "mass incarceration" in America.

My view:

The political establishment and ultra rich will soon view Rand Paul as a serious threat to their control of the country.  Few leaders understand the issues we face in this country and in most western democracies like this man.

The banking system and crony patronage problem in governmental influence that prevails in the West has resulted in increasing wealth and health inequity over the past 40 years.  The governing powers seem intent on keeping the bulk of citizens trapped in a web of debt slavery through high housing debt levels, health insurance costs, and college expenses.  Much of these issues are thanks to a central banking system intent on destroying the dollar's buying power.

This is a war on liberty.  So far the common citizens are losing and connected corporate types are winning.

But the tide is changing as more people become aware of this subterfuge.  Government can't save us, but it can enslave us if we allow it.
