From Publishers Weekly
Congressman, Republican Presidential candidate and author Paul (A Foreign Policy of Freedom) says "Let the revolution begin" with this libertarian plea for a return to "the principles of our Founding Fathers: liberty, self-government, the Constitution, and a noninterventionist foreign policy." Specific examples demonstrate how far U.S. law has strayed from this path, particularly over the past century, as well as Paul's firm grasp of history and dedication to meaningful debate: "it is revolutionary to ask whether we need troops in 130 countries... whether the accumulation of more and more power in Washington has been good for us...to ask fundamental questions about privacy, police-state measures, taxation, social policy." Though he can rant, Paul is informative and impassioned, giving readers of any political bent food for thought. With harsh words for both Democrats and Republicans, and especially George W. Bush, Paul's no-nonsense text questions the "imperialist" foreign policy that's led to the war in Iraq ("one of the most ill considered, poorly planned, and... unnecessary military conflicts in American history"), the economic situation and rampant federalism treading on states' rights and identities ("The Founding Fathers did not intend for every American neighborhood to be exactly the same"). Though his policy suggestions can seem extreme, Paul's book gives new life to old debates.

"The real truth about Liberty. This book takes a wrecking ball to the political establishment. Senator Goldwater would have loved it -- it's The Conscience of a Conservative for the 21st century." (Barry M. Goldwater, Jr., former member of Congress)

tax payer need, and the federal reserve, printing more money out of thin air. Brace yourself America!!! After the Global Currency Reset
H.R.2847, July1st 2014...Can you Say Hyperinflation! And get ready for the Renembi to be the next world currency. China is now the worlds
Bush debt, 4-9 trillion Obama debt. 9-17 trillion. Carl Sagan refers to this as a "googolplex" when the number of zero's becomes in comprehensible to understand or control. The American standard of living as you know today is going to change... and not for the good.
Hold on, the ride is going to get rough.
Thank you Ron Paul. For a life of standing up for my liberties and educating me, making me a more informed voter, and a proud American.
