Ron Paul

Ron Paul Former Representative Ron Paul has maintained a steadfast consistency in speaking out against executive power, taxation and war. Unlike many of his Republican peers, as a Congressman, he voted against the Patriot Act and against the Iraq war. He has voted against farm subsidies and regulating the Internet, which is in line with his interest in reducing government spending and the role of the Federal government. Paul has also expressed his opposition to the war on drugs, saying that the government's efforts have actually been a war on doctors. These and other controversial opinions have often caused tension with his Republican counterparts. Paul is the author of many books, including End The Fed, Liberty Defined and Revolution: A Manifesto. Along with a lengthy political career as a Congressman and Presidential candidate, Paul has also worked as a respected obstetrician in his home State of Texas. Since his retirement from Congress in 2013, Paul has stayed busy encouraging Americans to fight for liberty by founding the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity and his own news channel.

Hobby Lobby Decision Creates Small Island Of Freedom In Ocean Of Statism

This week, supporters of religious freedom cheered the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case. The Court was correct to protect business owners from being forced to violate their religious beliefs by paying for contraceptives. However, the decision was very limited in scope and application. The Court’s decision only applies to certain types of […]

Ron Paul: Celebrate Independence Day By Opposing Government Tyranny

This week, Americans will enjoy Independence Day with family cookouts and fireworks. Flags will be displayed in abundance. Sadly, however, what should be a celebration of the courage of those who risked so much to oppose tyranny will instead be turned into a celebration of government, not liberty. The mainstream media and opportunistic politicians have […]

Ron Paul: Opt-Out Of Common Core And Opt-In To Pro-Liberty Curriculum

Oklahoma recently took action to protect the state’s children from the Federal education bureaucracy by withdrawing from Common Core. Common Core is the latest attempt to bribe States, with money taken from the American people, into adopting a curriculum developed by Federal bureaucrats and education “experts.” In exchange for Federal funds, States must change their […]

Straight Talk: Haven’t We Already Done Enough Damage in Iraq?

In 2006, I invited the late General Bill Odom to address my Thursday Congressional luncheon group. Gen. Odom, a former NSA director, called the Iraq war “the greatest strategic disaster in American history,” and told the surprised audience that he could not understand why Congress had not impeached the president for pushing this disaster on […]

Ron Paul: Obama’s Foreign Policy Rhetoric Does Not Match U.S. Actions

President Barack Obama’s recent foreign policy speech, delivered at this year’s West Point graduation ceremony, was a disappointment to anyone who hoped the President might be changing course. The failure of each U.S. intervention thus far in the 21st century might have inspired at least a bit of reflection. However, the President made it clear […]

Ron Paul: Say No To Mandatory Mental Health Screening For Gun Purchases

Last week Americans were shocked and saddened by another mass killing, this one near a college campus in California. We all feel deep sympathy for the families of the victims. As usual, many people responded to this shooting by calling for new Federal gun control laws, including the mental health screening of anyone attempting to […]

Ron Paul: The VA Scandal is Just the Tip of the Military Abuse Iceberg

President Barack Obama held a press conference last week to express his outrage over reports that the Veterans Administration was routinely delaying treatment to veterans, with some veterans even dying while on alleged secret waiting lists. The President said, “If these allegations prove to be true, it is dishonorable, it is disgraceful, and I will […]

Ron Paul: Tax Reform is Useless Without Spending Reform

Recently, Republican leaders in Congress unveiled a “tax reform” plan that they claimed would provide the American people with a simpler, fairer, and more efficient tax system. While this plan does lower some tax rates and contains some other changes that may make next April a little less painful for Americans, there is little in […]

Ron Paul: What Does The U.S. Government Want In Ukraine?

In several eastern Ukrainian towns over the past week, the military opened fire on its own citizens. Dozens may have been killed in the violence. Although the U.S. government generally condemns a country’s use of military force against its own population, especially if they are unarmed protesters, this time the U.S. Administration blamed the victims. […]

Ron Paul Explains Why America Is No Longer Economic Leader

Last week World Bank economists predicted that China would soon displace the United States as the world’s largest economy. The fact that this one-time economic basket case is now positioned to surpass the US is one more sign of the damage done to American prosperity by welfare, warfare, corporatism, and fiat money. Some commentators have […]
