Ron Paul Doesn’t Need Your Rocking Chair

If big-spending Republicans and entitlement-loving Democrats thought Representative Ron Paul’s (R-Texas) exit from Congress at the end of the year was going to serve well to help shut up the crusaders against Keynesianism, they are dead wrong.

Paul, a famously vocal opponent of big government spending, indicated in a recent interview that he plans to continue to spread his message of fiscal responsibility and resistance of government intrusion; and he will be addressing a likely more receptive audience than the Congress he has spent more than three decades trying to persuade.

Speaking with reporters for The Hill, Paul said that he plans to continue working to shrink the size of American government by attempting to win hearts and minds at places that have long been considered strongholds of American liberalism: college campuses. Paul, despite being the oldest of GOP Presidential contenders in the last election, has already made vast inroads with American college students.

“I’m excited about spending more time on college campuses, not less. College campuses will still be on my agenda. That’s where the action is,” he said.  “The young people don’t like the debt they are inheriting, the violation of their civil liberties. They don’t like the war and it’s a fertile field. The people up here sort of ignore them.”

Anyone who has listened to Paul speak or read any of his books (End the Fed, The Revolution: A Manifesto and Liberty Defined, among others) can likely already imagine what his message will be as the campus tour gets under way. For those in need of a refresher, a recent interview at the Mises Supporters Summit with Amanda BillyRock, a promising young disciple of Austrian economics and liberty devotee, gives a sample of the message that may be in store.
