Ron Paul Rewind: The Right Not To Bake the Cake

On Monday, the United States Supreme Court, in the case Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, decided in favor of a bakery that the Colorado state government sought to require to design and create a custom wedding cake to celebrate a same-sex marriage. The court’s narrow basis for its resolution of the matter means that we can expect to see more cases dealing with similar issues moving through American courts.

Ron Paul: Effort to Eliminate Cash is an ‘Attack on Individual Freedom’

Premier libertarian communicator Ron Paul, in an interview Tuesday with host Dan Dicks at Press For Truth, called the effort to eliminate cash an “attack on individual freedom.” Restricting and discouraging the use of cash, suggests Paul, has always been a goal of statists as a means to reduce individuals’ independence. “A cashless society is very, very dangerous,” continues Paul.

Why Ron Paul Thinks He Would Likely Be Impeached if He Were President

What would Ron Paul do if he were president? Alex Jones asked the former United States House of Representatives member and three-time presidential candidate this question in a Wednesday interview at the Alex Jones Show. Veto the spending bills, bring the US troops home from overseas, and investigate the Federal Reserve and curtail its power are actions included in Paul’s answer. But, Paul also cautions that a president who took such bold actions would likely be impeached with bipartisan support.

Decades of Unconstitutional Wars

Despite United States Congress members insisting that Congress debate and vote on US military actions overseas, congressional leadership has chosen inaction, allowing military actions unilaterally pursued by the executive branch to continue unrestrained. And, when, this year, consideration has begun to move forward on an authorization for use of military force (AUMF), it is in the form of legislation (S.J.Res. 59) sponsored by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) that would rubber-stamp the US government’s existing wars and sweepingly authorize the executive branch to choose to pursue much more additional military action across the world.

How did we reach this situation so far removed from the US Constitution’s dictate that Congress alone decides if the US goes to war, as well as what is the scope of any such wars? Constitutional scholar Louis Fisher examines this question in detail in his article “Unconstitutional Wars from Truman Forward” in the latest issue of the Center for the Study of Statesmanship’s journal Humanitas.

Ron Paul Supports American Exceptionalism?!

“American exceptionalism” is a phrase frequently rolled out in support of United States interventions abroad, including US military attacks. So it would likely surprise many people to hear that Ron Paul, the former US House of Representatives member and presidential candidate known for his advocacy for a noninterventionist foreign policy, declared in a panel discussion this week at the TRT World show The Newsmakers that he is a supporter of American exceptionalism. However, there is a catch. Paul defines the American exceptionalism he supports differently than the way that phrase is commonly defined by people who desire the US to be an empire or the policeman on the world.

Ron Paul Interview with Larry King: Foreign Policy, Mueller Investigation, and More

Ron Paul and interviewing legend Larry King had a provocative discussion last week on King’s Politicking show at RT. The prominent libertarian communicator, who founded the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity in 2013 after leaving the United States House of Representatives, talked with King about a variety of topics running from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation to the US government’s interventionist foreign policy.
