Ron Paul Doesn’t Need Your Rocking Chair

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.

        Try to imagine the process he identifies as “thinking”. That’s why we have another four years of destruction facing us.

      • Robert Smith

        Really steve…. What’s worse now than four years ago? More importantly, what’s worse than 4 1/2 years ago?

        Please be specific.


      • Sinbad

        Maybe he should make like his sentance and “run on”?

    • Mikey

      This web site has always had advertisements, What the heck are you babbling about?

      • Wake The Sleepers(Jay)

        Good luck finding one that doesn’t.

    I can give Dr. Paul guarded support on his Fiscal policies, now that he has modified them. His ideas to end the Fed and return to the Gold Standard are sound, BUT ONLY with Strong International involvement! Either, attempted on a Uni-lateral basis, would be fatal flaws!

    • TML

      “…end the Fed and return to the Gold Standard are sound, BUT ONLY with Strong International involvement! Either, attempted on a Uni-lateral basis, would be fatal flaws!”

      No offense, but that’s the perspective of a follower, not a leader… and yields a sense of dependance on others, not independence.
      The idea of sustaining oneself needs no help from strangers.

    I fail to see how the US instituted Federal Reserve, or a US dollar can be corrected by international dictates when they are truly a national (or possibly state, in the latter case) issue. The Federal Reserve, although related to international banks, was created here by a Congressional action, and most definitely the US dollar, although it is at present an international reserve currency of last resort, was created, and should be recreated with a sound backing, here in the US.

    • Ted Crawford

      Like it or don’t like it, it makes absolutely NO difference, the fact is that we are involved in a Global Economy, based on the use of Reserve banks and fiat money!! If we Uni-laterially, ended the Fed and returned to the Gold Standard, we would, INSTANTLY rendered a very low level Banana Republic! Unable to even begin to pay our debt, forget our deficit, and unable to compete on a global basis for needed raw materials!

      • Vicki

        Already too late to pay the “debt”.

        If we were to be on the gold standard other countries would be lining up to sell us stuff to get gold as payment instead of paper.

      • Smoovious Laxness

        but we’re already on the road to becoming a banana republic, if we keep going like this…

        tho, actually, I think “republic” might be the wrong word to use there… but whatever form we end up being, it’ll still be bananas…

    International involvement is a big part if the mess we are in…….
    I believe Dr. Paul’s message is morally, financially, constitutionally, and biblically sound.

    Freedom comes from God not government. The US can’t police the world, spend phoney money, nation build, hand over its sovereignty to the UN, pass unconstitutional laws, deprive business and wealth, or destroy our republican form of government and expect to remain intact.

    We are so far from freedom and common sense that we do not recognize the awful situation we are in.

  • Mikey

    I sure do hope his son Rand runs for President. Rand shares most of the same values as his father. Perhaps by the time he runs, more Americans will wake up to the doom excessive spending, fiat currency, and unnecessary wars are causing.

  • Wayne Leach

    We can always continue to believe in Keynesian economics, print and spend fiat money as did Germany in the 1930′s, Zimbabwe, and other 3rd world countries. Check out the worth of the Zimbabwe money here:
    We need to establish a sound dollar, or there will soon be another global currency of last resort to replace our position.

      The socialist democrats in Ill picked this maddrass educated marist as their leader. This tailless clown, proves again the socialist democrats love any dictators, and think the UN is a bunch of wonderful socialist/communist and all detest freedom. Onumnutts proved he love Russian and all dictators as he keeps speaking ill to any jack wagon any where.

  • nevadasmith

    I advocate Ron Paul’s Campaign for Freedom and Liberty advance itself by dividing into two branches. The straight up Ron Paul States Right’s version and a strong Federalist one.
    Human Liberties and Freedoms must be protectected, one way or another.

    • Robert Smith

      Ah, ;another fan of the Captetbaggers & Steve McQueen, Brian Keeth, and Alan Ladd! Fortunately no realationship to the teabaggers.

      A great story.


      • Mikey

        People might pay attention to your rant if you wrote something that made sense. What was your point (if there was one)?
