For Liberty: How the Ron Paul Revolution Watered the Withered Tree of Liberty – Trailer

August 11, 2009 Leave a comment

This documentary about Ron Paul’s 2008 run for President and the Ron Paul Revolution is set to be released on DVD in mid-September. It looks fantastic, and I cannot wait to place an order and receive a copy of this. That whole run/campaign was quite special and fun, and this documentary looks like it will recapture that spirit and tell a wonderful story quite nicely. Even the seemingly little things about that time still stand out as nice memories, like gathering around the computer during the Moneybomb’s and watching the counter rise and rise and tossing in some money and hoping to see your name appear on the counter so you can take a screenshot. Good times.

Excerpt, Showdown in Iowa appears below:

August 6, 2009 Leave a comment

On Thursday, Dr. Ron Paul appeared on CNN with his son Dr. Rand Paul to discuss health care “reform,” out of control deficit spending, risks of price inflation, and how they would grade the Obama Administration.

Logic and common sense as always from both Paul’s.

Ron Paul: “Cash for Clunkers” Hurts the Poor

August 4, 2009 1 comment

In his latest C4L video, Dr. Paul discusses the true effects of the “Cash for Clunkers” program and talks about how government intervention into the economy will only make things worse.

As is practically always the case, Dr. Paul is 100% correct. I don’t know how anyone in Washington or any economist can say this program is successful and will “do good” for the economy with a straight face. It’s huge waste of money that the government does not have, and results in inflation. Horrible program.

Quote of the Day: August 2, 2009

August 2, 2009 Leave a comment

Today’s quote comes from US Republican Congressman and 2008 Presidential Candidate, Dr. Ron Paul.

Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens’ lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons.

Unfortunately, it seems more and more people believe that “security” is better than liberty, and not simply in a “protecting from attack” manner. Many supporters of ObamaCare seem to think that if the government runs healthcare, or at least “has a competitive hand in it”, that they’ll finally have security in healthcare. Government isn’t the solution, and the “security” they offer is not the kind of “security” a sane person would ever dare want.
