The lesson everyone should be learning is that govt is the problem. All govts. The US govt, the Russian govt, Ukraines, all of them, all over the world. They are the ones infiltrating and invading, lying and conning, taxing and regulating, killing and incarcerating. That Ron Paul is trying to say is that the concept of seceding (little govts detaching from big tyrannical govts), is a good thing and should be encouraged. Can we all agree on that?
