6/14/19 Ron Paul on the Prospects for Liberty Today

Ron Paul talks about his storied political career and the prospects for liberty under the Trump presidency. Paul is skeptical of Trump’s trade strategies, but holds out hope that his good instincts on certain foreign policy issues will translate into an actual reduction of the American empire. Paul says that although socialism has become fashionable in some parts of the country, many Americans are surprisingly receptive to the libertarian message that what we really need is more liberty, less war, and sound money.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Breaking Washington’s Addiction to War” (Eventbrite)
  • “Japanese tanker owner contradicts U.S. officials over explosives used in Gulf of Oman attack” (NBC)

Former congressman and American hero Ron Paul is the host of the Ron Paul Liberty Report and director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. Dr. Paul is the author of numerous books, including Swords into Plowshares and The Revolution: A Manifesto. Follow him on Twitter, @RonPaul.
