Ron Paul: Will The 112th Congress Really Respect The Constitution?

I wonder: will this welcomed renewed interest in the Constitution lead to a healthy reassessment of all of our policies? Will there be no more wars without an actual congressional declaration? Will the Federal Reserve Act be repealed? Will only gold and silver be deemed legal tender? Will we end all unconstitutional federal departments, including the Departments of Energy, Education, Agriculture, Commerce, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, and Labor? Will the Patriot Act be repealed and all warrantless searches stopped? Will the TSA be abolished? Will the IRS's unconstitutional collection powers end? Will executive and judicial quasi-legislative powers end? Will we end the federal war on drugs? Will we end the federal government's involvement in medical care? Will we end all of the federal government's illusionary insurance programs? Will we ban secret prisons, trials without due process, and assassinations? Will we end our foreign policy of invasion and occupation? For America to once again become the standard for a free society, our love of liberty and desire for peace must far surpass any public display of fidelity to the Constitution. We must first look to strong moral character, respect for the rule of law, and an understanding of the proper role of government in a free society.

In the article, the words "Will we" are used many times. Congress and the various presidents have authorized multitudes of "things" that any moral and ethical person would be shocked to find out about. They (Congress and the Pres.) have involved us through propaganda, trickery, force, and by our ignorance in general. So, who is really meant by the words WILL WE?

If WE finally get involved, WE just might straighten up the messes that they have gotten the world into.
