Ron Paul To Host Short New Radio Program

Ron Paul To Host Short New Radio Program
UPI FILE
Former Representative Ron Paul has a new gig.

Fans of liberty icon Ron Paul will be happy to learn that the former Representative’s retirement from the U.S. House has not marked the end of his public life. In fact, with the national radio show Paul will begin hosting next month, his message could reach more Americans than ever before.

Paul has joined up with Courtside Entertainment Group — home of such talk radio names as Laura Ingraham, Bill O’Reilly and Dr. Drew Pinsky — to produce two short daily radio commentaries which will air nationally beginning March 18. The short radio spot, dubbed “Ron Paul’s America,” will feature Paul’s opinions and analysis of the latest issues facing the Nation. Paul will also produce a weekly commentary for podcast.

“There’s no questioning the fact that Ron Paul is one of today’s most impactful leaders. His thoughts and opinions have created a significant and loyal following that has made its presence known throughout the country,” said Norm Pattiz, founder of Courtside Entertainment Group. “That following includes college campuses, corporate offices and everything in between. His new radio show for Courtside and his digital presence via podcasting create a platform that will be hugely successful.”

According to Paul, the spots are an opportunity to broaden the base of the liberty movement.

“I am very excited to have this opportunity to take the message of freedom to more people than ever, especially now when our country needs it so much,” Paul said. “Radio and podcasting are a much more powerful means of communication than speaking on the floor of Congress. I welcome this chance to work with Norm and Courtside and interact with America in a new way, delivering a message that is timelier than ever and a philosophy that people are clearly hungry to hear more about.”

    I guess he will be taking advantage of those government regulated radio frequencies. Far fewer people would hear what he has to say if we didn’t have government regulated radio frequencies.

    • rendarsmith

      So if they weren’t government regulated there would be no radio? Is that your point Doc? The more you talk the more you stick your foot in your mouth.

      • Doc Sarvis

        There probably would be radio but the chaos of frequency conflicts would very much limit broadcasts outside of a very limited homerange.

      • rendarsmith

        You sure? Proof?

        Or are you just desperately grabbing at straws in an attempt to bash Ron Paul who is against everything that you stand for (bigger government, more welfare and handouts, lavish lifestyle paid for by the government in exchange for votes)?

    • Eddie

      thanks uncle Sam for regulated frequencies. and roads. and taxes and welfare and forced healthcare, and not recognizing unborn children as alive and debasing our $$ by injecting 40 Billion a month into an already crippled market. its going to get worse before it gets better. taking from the producers to give to the moochers is a non sustainable approach to solving our issues. when you incentives laziness(food stamps,welfare), you get more of it. when you punish production(progressive taxes), you get less of it. this is a downward spiral that can be stopped and Dr Paul has some tangible ideas that can put our nation on a path back to greatness.

    • Kathy

      Dear Doc Sarvis,
      It is easy to imagine that without governmental control, certain things wouldn’t work and/or be chaotic, like the regulated radio frequencies example. So it takes some imagination to focus your attention on all the areas of human life that have the potential for disorganization but are not. How could this be? There is a true phenomenon called spontaneous or emergent order that is inherent in the activity of human beings. Common law and language are two good examples. Another is trade which, under the rule of law (no stealing, no fraud, no violence) exists very well without government intervention. Home schoolers and airports without radio traffic control (yes, they do exist and it is unbelievable how rare accidents are!) are two more examples of spontaneous or emergent order. How people behave in the face of an emergency or crisis tells the same story. Ditto for scientific research – the most important discoveries and inventions had nothing to do with government programs. So I challenge you to discern this phenomenon! And also to realize how important freedom from top-down control is for getting the best out of what it is to be human.

      • rendarsmith

        He’s just desparately looking for an excuse to bash Ron Paul who is a threat to his lavish way of life (paid for by the tax payer).

      • Doc Sarvis

        Kathy,

        Uh, just how many languages are there?
        It is hard to have an airplane accident in places where you have one plane in the air at any one time.
        And are you trying to tell me there is no stealing in “common law” situations?

        Rendarsmith,
        I’ve said nothing against Ron Paul AND I have never taken financial assistance from the government. I’ve always paid my way.

        • Kathy

          I am not saying that bottom-up situations are without problems. However, they pale in comparison to the problems created by large government interventions. This is why Free Market Capitalism has been so successful in creating peace and prosperity for so many on the planet. No one says it’s perfect but the USSR is testament to the horrors of central planning. Ditto for Cuba and North Korea. My vote is with bottom-up (free) efforts by free people, under the rule of law.
          My challenge to you is sincere. It takes some discernment but it’s entirely possible to begin to see the the self-organization and value of free people and
          behavior. In fact, it’s quite astonishing. I would appreciate your openness to my suggestions.

      • Right Brain Thinker

        Nicely put, Kathy. A cut above the usual mindless name calling and parroting that we see on PLD.

        I would take issue with one thing you say, however. “Another is trade which, under the rule of law (no stealing, no fraud, no violence) exists very well without government intervention”

        If we consider “trade” to include unfettered capitalism and free markets, we have seen that the LACK of adequate “government intervention” there has created huge problems for the nation. From the days of the Robber Barons to the speculators of the late 1920′s to the folks at Goldman Sachs et al that brought on the recent financial crash—-the plutocracy and the corporate oligarchy,—-we have seen NOT “trying to get the best out of what it means to be human”, but the worst of being human—-the greed and selfishness that will destroy this nation if left unchecked. The 1% are deadly serious about “getting the best” for themselves while denying the 99% the same opportunity—-that’s the “emergent order” there and I would appreciate you explaining to us how that is “good”.

        PS I have to chuckle at the mention of home schooling and non-traffic controlled airports. It remains to be seen what damage home schooling has done to the nation, and I have one of those airports near me. If I want to watch the exciting “near collision action” there, I need to pack a lunch, because it is used by about three planes a day.

      • momo

        Right Brain Thinker says: “PS I have to chuckle at the mention of home schooling and non-traffic controlled airports. It remains to be seen what damage home schooling has done to the nation, and I have one of those airports near me. ”

        The damage done by public education is there for everyone to see.

      • Right Brain Thinker

        momo says, “The damage done by public education is there for everyone to see”. I assume that momo has been “public school educated”? If yes, his inability to do more than snipe would indicate that he has been “failed” to some extent by his education. Or perhaps he was such a dolt to start with that it really is quite an accomplishment that the public schools got him to the point that he can even say that much. As I said, it remains to be seen. We know what the public schools have given the country, home-schooling is still a question-mark (and almost an oxymoron, if one looks at the true goals of “education”).

      • cawmun cents

        RBT,
        IS IT THEN YOUR CONTENTION THAT ANYTHING PAST AND EXCLUDING PUBLIC EDUCATION IS OF NO USE TO AN INDIVIDUAL?
        Or is it merely an observation that public education often falls short of any goal to be academically sound?
        -CC.

      • Right Brain Thinker

        I’m not sure exactly what cawmun cents is saying here, but it sounds like he is trying to trap me somehow. So I will be careful and even circumspect in my reply. If CC is asking,

        IS IT THEN YOUR CONTENTION THAT ANYTHING (substitute “other than”) PUBLIC EDUCATION IS OF NO USE TO AN INDIVIDUAL?
        No, any “education”, no matter how biased and lacking in substance is probably better than NO education. I WOULD contend that “home schooling” does not achieve the goals that our public school system has and is in many ways elitist and even un-American (and the same can be said for all forms of “private” education below the college level).

        CC then asks, “Or is it merely an observation that public education often falls short of any goal to be academically sound?”, Again, not clear, but it sounds as if CC is saying “public education is not successful” or “is not academically sound”. That may be his “observation”, based on MUCH experience with education of all kinds, I’m sure, but it is not mine. I would make the observation that public education has been remarkably successful in helping to make this country what it is but, like all large endeavors, it is not perfect. It WOULD be more successful if the folks on the right who seek to destroy the best things about this country and return it to the 1880′s had been less successful in their efforts.

        • Eddie

          just show me where it says in the constitution that is is up to the federal government to provide a standard education to all. you cant because it doesn’t exist. however there is a pesky little amendment that regulates that and all other responsibilities to the states.
          DR Paul would have, if elected, removed the department of education, among other things and enforced the constitution. – what a concept!!!

      • Wellarmed

        Rock on Kathy! Well said!

    • Nancy in Nebraska

      doc, truly a dumb thing to say. When mankind has a problem it finds a solution! Mankind recognized that in order for things to run more smoothly, a government could be formed to organize and do things that were necessary to the common good. Things STARTED with mankind, NOT the government!!! The government didnt invent the radio or anything to do with it. They were merely designated to do the SCUT work of organizing and keeping order. The problem started when somewhere along the line, they decide that THEY owned the air waves and that THEY could tell everyone what to do. We don’t owe the government thanks for anything that comes from mankind! The government are merely the employees of mankind! They are paid to do their job. They invent nothing! Hey create nothing!

      • Wellarmed

        Hello Nancy in Nebraska. I agree with your statements in its entirety.

        Do you think it is safe to say that our Nation truly became indifferent to our Government when we began to refer to it as THEY rather than WE?

        I am in no way disagreeing with your statements, merely making an observation.

  • dan

    FCC…one of the few good uses of government….ie :as a traffic cop but not a censer or designer

  • Jana

    Good for him. We need more truth being told to combat the lies of the left.

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest MAUREEN D ZIKA

    I am so delighted, excited, thrilled and hopeful for all that is happening around us economically and politically that Ron Paul has a radio show. He one of the few around politically that has an idea of what is going on. He is saying things he said when he first entered politics. Same ideas, same person. He is the only politician I have ever witnessed that has proven he cares and is interested in the good of the people, not his wallet or position. He is one intelligent man. I am looking forward to listening to him. Maybe the public will be lucky enough to see possibly a TV show?

  • http://gravatar.com/cbgard Carlucci

    I wasn’t aware of this, but I have to say this is great news. I’ll look forward to tuning in and hearing what Dr. Paul has to say.

  • Wellarmed

    Thank You Mr. Rolley for delivering some good news as it is sorely needed at this day and age. The only exception that I will take with your article is the reference to Dr. Paul’s “followers”. I am not certain that those who find Dr. Paul’s statements to be worthwhile could be construed as “followers”. I would personally like to reference them as our nations future leaders.

    I hope you find some agreement with that observation.

    And Congratulations to you Dr. Paul. It is well deserved!
