Ron Paul, the Gateway Drug

Dr. Paul introduced a truly small government philosophy to millions. The unassuming doctor from Texas, a Congressman long in the intellectual wilderness but consistent in message, has had arguably as much impact in this young century on American politics as any other American political figure. Politics is different today, and I would argue very much better, for Paul’s evangelizing.

Ron Paul: Not just a moment–we’re in the middle of a “libertarian transition”

The one and only time I met Ron Paul was in his office in DC in 2007. I had long admired him and I had come to pitch Dr. Paul on becoming a client of mine. I was a fledgling stock broker and I thought I might be able to interest him in some gold stocks.

The libertarians are driving the GOP toward a more across the board small government philosophy. They are making big government conservatives uneasy and changing the dynamics of the American 2 party system.

The Hill: Another financial meltdown on the horizon?

We have been “pressing the case for sound money” for a very long time. Many others, particularly those economists considered part of the Austrian School have been doing so for decades. It was the Austrian School economists who saw 2008 coming. It was the Austrians who warned the world. But the Austrians are a truly and deeply free market bunch, and politicians don’t like free markets. So the warnings went unheeded.
