These speeches (before congress) are laid out in chronological order. I found it unsettling that Dr. Paul was, year after year, being ignored by his fellow representatives as they made the same mistakes over and over. The same policies were being carried out under every administration whether the majority in congress was Democratic or Republican.
Dr. Paul warns over and over that our unconstitutional (undeclared) wars will lead to an imperial presidency and to attacks on U.S. soil. Did his peers listen? No. Have they changed their ways since 9/11--when "everything changed"? No. Nothing will change in our country till the people grow a backbone and learn to stand for principle. Dr. Paul is not, cannot be, the savior of liberty in the United States. He is, however, a shining example of what each of us, as a citizen, can be.
It is because our policy has been bent to serve the politically connected at the expense of Americans. All of those old commitments equal money to the persons & corporations that profit from the old order. We have become an empire at the expense of our Republic. Worse still than the cost, is the resentment this generates around the world against us.
You will find that almost every one of the things he predicted in this book years ago has come to pass. However, he didn't have a crystal ball, he just paid attention to history and the US Constitution. We were warned about this by our founders. Ron Paul is one of the few in Congress who still knows what the founders tried so hard to do--to restrain the natural human tendencies to abuse power.
This book is a history lesson about US Foreign policy. It also is a warning to us that we are headed down a dangerous path. Finally, he includes chapters on what a proper foreign policy for us should look like: "Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations...entangling alliances with none."
Foreign policy is only part of the problem, but it is a very big part. For people familiar with Ron Paul and his views, this book will help further enlighten you.
For people not familiar with Ron Paul, I highly encourage you to take a look. The man predicted a terrorist attack on the United States, the dragged out war in Iraq, an economic recession, and the housing crisis. His predictions for the future, based on our current path, are even more frightening.
If you want a serious look at the state of the Republic, read this book and other Ron Paul writings. This book is worth much more than the $5 it costs at the Kindle store.
