Ron Paul Decrying Arming of Federal Bureaucrats in 1997

This is an interesting article (video also embedded in the article) about Ron Paul predicting the dire consequences of arming Federal bureaucrats, as far back as 1997.  We are seeing the dangers come more and more to light in such examples as the Cliven Bundy fiasco in Nevada.  There is no reason for agencies such as the IRS, BLM, etc., or really any agencies outside of the military and FBI, to be carrying weapons.  It proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that the federal government considers its own citizens the enemy, and we may be sure they will not be loathe to use those weapons against their own people.  They proved it in Waco and at Ruby Ridge, and likely would have proven it again in Nevada if the television cameras hadn’t shown up in time to prevent a disaster.
