In his “I Have A Dream” speech, Dr. King said this:

When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

There’s considerable consonance between Dr. Ron Paul’s views and Dr. King’s, in their stands against militarism and for civil liberties.

“Liberty is the true antidote to racism, and freedom–limited, constitutional government devoted to the protection of individual rights—can uplift us all.” – Ron Paul

Interestingly enough, Dr. King was very much against the Vietnam War, and some claim that this might have been a contributing reason behind his assassination. Video: Merv Griffin (1968).

Dr. King was talking about Vietnam… and he sounds like Congressman Ron Paul on Iraq and Afghanistan. Interesting that.

Dr. King was an American patriot who lived and died promoting Peace, Freedom and Civil Liberties. Dr. King practiced Libertarian principles of civil disobedience with non-violence. He worked to make sure that all people are treated fairly.

Please take the time today to reflect on the words of Dr. King – rejoice in the advances he helped foster – and remember that it was the rights and freedoms that our Constitution guarantees that allowed his dream to, in many respects, become reality. That is why it is crucial for us to hold on to the ideals and intentions of our Founding documents. We must not allow ourselves to be marched into tyranny out of fear of our enemies. Dr. King knew that full well.
