More About the Author

Ron Paul, an eleven-term congressman from Texas, is the leading advocate of freedom in our nation's capital. He has devoted his political career to the defense of individual liberty, sound money, and a non-interventionist foreign policy. Judge Andrew Napolitano calls him "the Thomas Jefferson of our day." After serving as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force in the 1960s, Dr. Paul moved to Texas to begin a civilian medical practice, delivering over four thousand babies in his career as an obstetrician. He served in Congress from 1976 to 1984, and again from 1996 to the present. He and Carol Paul, his wife of fifty-one years, have five children, eighteen grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.Ron Paul, the New York Post once wrote, is a politician who "cannot be bought by special interests." "There are few people in public life who, through thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles," added a congressional colleague. "Ron Paul is one of those few."

Dr. Paul is currently serving his tenth term as a United States Representative. His political career as a Congressman started in the late seventies, and ever since he has continually been an outspoken opponent of the United States' policy of foreign interventionism. This book is a compilation of Dr. Paul's speeches given to the House of Representatives concerning our foreign policy.

Dr. Paul repeatedly warns the Congress of the flaws of military interventionism and the consequences America will face if we are to continue our role as the world's policeman. He reminds us that only Congress has the Constitutional authority to declare war and that its failure to retain this power has caused numerous no-win wars since the Korean Conflict. It is this flagrant abuse of the Constitution, among others, which has caused the erosion of civil liberties at home, unnecessary American and foreign casualties, an outstanding and ever-increasing national debt, and loss of America's historical moral high ground and admiration of other nations.

I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a better understanding as to the ramifications of America's foreign interventionism.

One might think a text that consists essentially of transcripted U.S. House floor speeches would be dry, slow reading. One would be mistaken. It is in fact highly interesting in that it reveals the sometimes stealth ways in which foreign policy is put into action. It is interesting that Rep. Paul was speaking out against even benign-seeming bills related to U.S. involvement in Iraq throughout the '90s, warning that such legislation was setting the stage for a full-fledged conflict. Ten-term Congressman Paul reveals himself to be the often lone voice in Congress for reasoned foreign policy based in the best common interests of the U.S. and respect for the sovereignty of other nations.

contrary to the silly assertion that Ron Paul's foreign policy is "isolationist", Dr. Paul demonstrates in this book how a genuine, consistent approach to foreign policy would not only save us literally HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS of dollars each year, we would also be a lot safer as a nation. If you are looking for a new approach to keeping America safe and ending income tax then you will really enjoy this book. Ron Paul's principles are never changed since he came into office in the 70's, read his speeches before congress yourself. Ron Paul is the only candidate running who will END THE WAR & Restore the Constitution!

Format: Paperback
This book opened my eyes. Ron Paul is a real voice of reason in these troubled times. A modern day Thomas Jefferson. A champion of the Constitution (the supreme law of the land) and the Bill of Rights. What amazes me is his consistent message on Foreign Policy - a message that, after some research on my part, I found hasn't changed in 30 years. Unusual for a politician, indeed.

After 9/11, I supported the current administration's War on Terror. I believed terrorists attacked us because of both our freedom for women and prosperity. I fully supported the bombing of thousands of people and the spreading of American-style democracy overseas to people, whom upon closer inspection, clearly didn't want it. I am ashamed.

The administration knew the button to push: Fear. How could I have been so lazy as to not thoroughly research foreign policy. If I had, I would have been able to read between the lies. I would have known that inciting "Fear" in the American people to fight a war on "Extreme Fear" (terror) made no sense whatsoever. Instead, in exchange for revenge, I lost a piece of my soul.

Ron Paul opened my eyes. I had planned to vote for "America's Mayor" Rudolph Giuliani in 2008. Now I'm voting for Ron Paul.

I didn't realize just how big of a mess this country was in until I read this book by Dr. Paul. It must be one of the most eye-opening volumes that I have read in a long time and I highly recommend it to everyone concerned about the future of the Republic.

I highly recommend this book.
The more I look into Ron Paul the more I am seeing what a historical character he is. This book is essentially a collection of statements that he has made before the house since 1976. He has been courageously speaking before the house since the beginning. But this book offers a depth into the man that goes beyond his speeches, one is able to see the far reaching foresight Dr Paul has through these statements that he has made with many predictions specifically on the war in Iraq coming true. Also he goes more into the history and philosophy of the neo-cons which by itself is worth the reading.

I voted for Ron Paul when he ran for Prez. I knew he would not win (just as I know he will not win this time) but intellectual honesty bested "throwing my vote away". The problem with a Ron Paul candidacy is the growing "single issue" voting. Few look at the entire picture and the title of this handy book - "A Foreign Policy of Freedom" says it all. To Paul (and myself) the notion of freedom is intrinsically bound with economic rights, foreign policy and the role of government.

Contrary to what is commonly believed, foreign entanglements - as opposed to wars - are not formulas for security but recipes for disaster. It is almost inevitable that we, the only super power, will be drawn into a conflict given the creeping tide of intervention. It should be remembered that in 2000, Bush ran as a NON-interventionist, scorning nation building and meddling. Oh how times have changed though I'll admit these have been tumultuous times. The idea of an American Empire requires on-going intervention at some part of the world and the attitude that we are the world's nanny. For some reason, we still pay billions to defend Europe, Japan, Taiwan, Israel, Egypt, Korea and the Saudis.

A look 10 years in the future will see a waning Mideast as alternative energies become commonplace. It is NOT true (as is pointed out) that "they" have always "hated us". In fact, they love America - our food, clothes, movies, music, speech and science. Until recently the US was popular with the masses, the heaven on Earth to which they aspired. Paul outlines philosophical reasons for opposing unrestricted intervention, reaching back to the Founding Fathers and their intentions. He also reminds us of our desperate financial situation and the cost of being Big Brother.
