By J. Stewart on April 29, 2008
Format: Paperback
I just finished this one today after reading 'The Revolution: A Manifesto' This was just as good. Written over 20 years ago it gives an excellent example of just how completely consistent Ron Paul is.

If this book had been read by the masses in 1988, many of the problems we face today could have been at the least minimized or quite possibly even fixed by now.

It reads well and is hard to put down until you get to the chapter on economics.

I realized while reading the economics chapter that because the subject is frankly dull, we have for too long ignored it and trusted that others know how to run the economy.

I understand now that they do. They know exactly how to transfer wealth to themselves and keep us in the dark.

I read the whole chapter again, you should too.

If you can only get one book, get 'The Revolution: A Manifesto'. I promise after reading it you will be back to get the rest.

Anyone familiar with Ron Paul knows that he is a staunch supporter of the Constitution and the rights of the people. Sadly, he is a dying breed in our government. In his book, Freedom Under Siege, he simply destroys arguments for big government and shows how whether you are a Democrat or Republican, you probably have been fooled into supporting unconstitutional policies with little backing historically. What amazes me most is that Dr. Paul's logic and understanding of our nation's history is so complete. If you like reading about controversial topics in America today and need some grounding historically in these areas, such as the Draft or Welfare, then buy this book.

My favorite RP book to date, this 1987 essay defines Individual Rights (life, liberty and property), how the Constitution was designed to protect them, and how our corrupted government is taking them away. How? By taxation, inflation, land confiscation, by generally exceeding its enumerated powers and (in the past) military conscription.

The Individual's rights section is excellent, laying out the libertarian view of the proper (minimalist) role of government in a free society, 'moral law' as opposed to 'legislating morality,' and how a free society is superior to others (socialism, communism, fascism, etc). Dr Paul also describes how collectivism (group think) has contributed to the erosion of these rights.

Reading this book should bring the reader up to speed for his new Manifesto! It lays the foundation for all of his current policies, including honest money, a truly free market and re-establishing a small, transparent Constitutional government.

Amazing how many bad reviews show up all in a single day, sounds like free republic has it's marching orders to go around bad mouthing him in any place they can find. All of you doing this make weak arguments built up from a strawman POV. You don't review the book after having read it you just say you did or you don't even go that far. This book was very forward thinking and a warning that we would wind up with a crazy debt ridden out of control insane government, and he said this much so in 1988, way ahead of this moment in time, but he could already see what was coming. the only people that would dispute this are just disinfo agents and others with agenda's to grind. If you don't like freedom for the world then you probably hate Ron Paul. If you like adultry and media controlled by Bain capital MSNBC and clear channel or the Audacity of Hype then you probably hate Ron Paul's solutions. But most likely, if you fall in to any of those categories you likely don't understand Austrian economics, nor a policy of peace and prosperity because all you have been told maybe to fear those against war and welfare for the rich and poor, as if they have nothing to do with our current mess. Thanks to the federal reserve we have massive student debt, mortgage foreclosures, wars overseas, etc. All of these problems stem from a primary cause of letting the Fed set interest rates at zero and pumping money into the economy both physical and digital that then gets thrown into the stock markets chasing investments for profits, only the loses are being subsidized by those that don't benefit from the profits, it's a scam and a lie and has to come to an end.Read more ›

This book was written in the late 1980's, but it could have been wriiten yesterday and you couldn't tell the difference. Everything he discusses is still very relevant, perhaps even more so now. His book "Revolution: A Manifesto" was an easy read, a begginers introduction to liberty, if you will. "Freedom Under Seige" has a lot more substance. This books also sees Dr. Paul discussing issues that you do not hear him discuss near enough. He usually discusses monetary policy and foreign policy, and is always dead on with his views on these subject. he discusses these topics in "Freedom Under Seige as well, but He also discuss many other constitutional issues like conscription and gun control. Ron Paul is a true patriot. His books should be required reading in school.
