Of course the average citizen would agree with Ron Paul's views against US foreign policy, and he is quite separate from the neocons in the GOP. The concern with Ron Paul is his economic views: his belief in the Austrian School of Economics (i.e. free market mythology). Okay, de-regulate, weaken the Federal government. I'd be curious how you plan to counter-balance the power that is shifted to the multinational Corporations. After all, it is the Corporations that run the US government (big banks, weapons/oil/energy/Pharma/telecom/agriculture/food companies, etc.). Address how the States will regulate these Corporations. The fear is that they won't, under free market mythology. It is consolidated, unaccountable power that oppresses, and it can take the form of un-democratic Governments (Third World) or multinational Corporations (America). Look at the most peaceful places on earth for the average citizen to live: they are Social Democracies, with an accountable Government that plays an important role. Banter on all you want about economic freedom, individualism, and personal responsibility, but the individual has few options against multinational Corporations.

A must-read for all voters. Whether you agree with Ron Paul point by point or not, you have to admire a man who refuses to vote against his convictions. Honesty and integrity are rare qualities in these times.

In this book lies the solutions to our problems as a country.

A book for every American bookshelf.

Easy to read, backed by fact, and held up by an honest American.

Paul breaks down each of the major issues facing our country today in his little "election book", and it opens the readers' eyes to the amount of myth we are made to believe. An anti-propaganda piece.
