((Washington DC – Wednesday)) In a farewell address to the United States from the floor of the House of Representatives, Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) referred to groups such as “religious organizations, secular organizations and psychopathic authoritarians” who wish to initiate government force on others. It has long been suspected by psychologists that there is a strong correlation of psychopathic tendencies between the traits that are necessary to achieve power and the politicians that seek it. Fox News Sr. Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano refers to this as “libido dominandi” which is latin for “the lust to dominate.”

As the unlikely hero of what became a national grassroots movement, Congressman Paul awakened hundreds of thousands of young Americans to the ideas of limited government during his recent Presidential runs. Known as “Dr. No” in the House for his votes against unconstitutional spending bills, the OBGYN bade farewell to his supporters and chastised his opposition stating that they always justify their cause on humanitarian grounds. But are they humanitarians or are they psychopaths? Leave your thoughts below.
