Crimes and Hope: Ron Paul's Conversation With Lew Rockwell

Two legendary voices for peace and liberty are at the top of their game in this historic conversation between Ron Paul and his first Congressional chief of staff, Lew Rockwell. Having worked so long for Dr. Paul I can say it sounds in many ways like the conversations we would have in his Congressional office in the 2000s-2010s. I imagine Lew Rockwell, who went before my colleagues and me, in Dr. Paul's Congressional office sitting down and bouncing ideas off of him. Listening to Dr. Paul's perspectives and latest thinking. Taking that as inspiration for further research. It brings back so many memories.

Ron Paul: Technology for Liberty, Not War

RPI Chairman and Founder Ron Paul, in a wide-ranging Alex Jones Show interview on Tuesday, commented on the potential of technology to counter “the abusive state.” Noting that government will always use technology for war and against the people, Paul says that in response “we have to try to get the smart people on our side to make sure the technology protects our liberty.”

One Party Interventionist State — Ron Paul With Charles Goyette

The two US political parties are united in their dedication to foreign interventionism, Ron Paul told Charles Goyette in their weekly podcast. 

Where did all the weapons come from that ISIS is using to wreak havoc in parts of Iraq and Syria? From the US! That is why the first order of bombing business was for US weapons to destroy other US weapons that were in the hands of ISIS.

Ron Paul and Charles Goyette: Syria and Iraq the Fruits of Interventionism

It was only weeks ago that President Obama requested an extra $500 million dollars for Syrian rebels. Now we are told that the US must start bombing some of those rebels in Syria. The elective Bush war in Iraq for WMDs that never were is a good case history in the folly of U.S. interventionism. But the rise of ISIS is an even more compact representation of interventionism’s contradictions and failures.

Liberty Across the Board: Ron Paul vs Boston Globe on The Right to Use Heroin

The Boston Globe published this week a guest editorial arguing, as RPI Chairman and Founder Ron Paul memorably did during a 2011 Republican presidential primary debate in South Carolina, that heroin should be legalized. While the Globe editorial presents strong arguments for heroin legalization, it shies away from discussing the right to use heroin. In contrast, when asked in the debate about legalizing heroin, Paul zeroed in on individual rights, saying that protecting the right to use heroin is part of his commitment to protecting liberty “across-the-board”...

NY Times Truncated Ron Paul History Puts Libertarians in Republican Box

As libertarians participate in a trans-ideological and trans-partisan effort that may overturn the warfare-police-surveillance state, the old media leaders seem to be taking on a mission to tame libertarianism’s adherents by defining them as mainly a subgroup in the Republican Party.

First, the Associated Press and Washington Post ran articles, respectively, in June and July absurdly portraying Libertarian Party candidates as “spoilers” for Republican candidates — as if Republican candidates have an automatic claim to the votes of people who desire to support libertarian ideas.

With August upon us, the New York Times takes its turn, publishing Thursday an article “Has the ‘Libertarian Moment’ Finally Arrived?”

'Your Tax Money to Arm The Jihad': Ron Paul Speaks With Charles Goyette

Don't miss Ron Paul's discussion with Charles Goyette this week. Dr. Paul points out the foolishness of arming jihadists in one country and feigning surprise when they attack a different country. It started with US funding the mujahideen in Afghanistan, where al-Qaeda was the beneficiary. Then, the US supported the ISIS to overthrow the secular in Syria only to be "surprised" when they attack the US-backed Maliki government  in Iraq.
