Despite Setbacks, Liberty Will Prevail in 2018
written by Ron Paul
Monday January 1, 2018

Happy New Year! We always approach a new year with anticipation, hope, and also some worries. Last year was one of the strangest political years I have seen in some time. A new Republican president spent his first year pursuing more or less the same foreign policy as his Democratic predecessor and the Democratic Party spent the year looking under every rock in the US for a “Russian connection” or any other reason to see him impeached over it.

The neocon-dominated foreign policy establishment on both the Left and Right were so furious that candidate Trump dared suggest we could get along with our “enemies” overseas that they jumped on the impeachment bandwagon -- even though once he became president Donald Trump filled his Administration with neocons and began dropping bombs.

Like “peace candidate” Obama, Donald Trump quickly dropped his “get along with others” rhetoric to become just another aggressive, interventionist US president. He slammed missiles into Syria over unproven claims of a chemical attack, he built US military bases on Syrian soil, he dropped the “mother of all bombs” on Afghanistan, he continued helping Saudi Arabia destroy Yemen, he expanded the US military occupation of Africa, he put NATO troops on the border of Russia, did his best to tear up the Iran nuclear agreement and in fact may have just launched a “color revolution” on Iran, and continued rattling sabers over China’s presence in the South China Sea.

That tells us quite a bit about what’s wrong with American political life these days. The “opposition party” doesn’t really oppose the other party’s policies. They are just angry that other the party is in power. With no real philosophical or policy differences, politics is essentially pointless. It is a game of spoils for the well-connected and little more than a sporting event for the rest of the country. Everyone wants to see his team come out on top.

Still, I have much hope for 2018. I know we are continuing to make steady progress waking up the American people to the idea that ideas do matter! Our interventionist foreign policy, responsible for so much misery around the world, is not inevitable. Our destructive economic and monetary policies, which enrich the well-connected while impoverishing the rest of us, are not inevitable. The further destruction of our right to privacy, to live our lives as we see fit, to pursue our own happiness without the government looking over our shoulder, is not inevitable. We can turn this around!

In 2018 I strongly believe more Americans will wake up to the seriousness of the total debt the US is facing and will begin blaming Washington for pumping up the warfare-welfare state. I believe more Americans will understand the role of the Federal Reserve in facilitating this ocean of debt. We will continue to make progress toward ending the Fed!

While the media loves to tell us all about how the millennials are attracted to discredited ideas like Bernie Sanders’ socialism and the dead-end of cultural Marxism, I believe 2018 will demonstrate that young people are actually attracted to the ideas of liberty more than ever. Liberty is a new idea and a winning idea, while the twin tyrannies of socialism and cultural Marxism should remain in same dustbin of history they were tossed into more than 25 years ago.

In 2018 my Institute for Peace and Prosperity will be reaching more people than ever with plenty of new projects, events, and of course our daily Liberty Report! Yes, we will turn this around. Liberty will prevail!

"Liberty will prevail", if only. This statement seems to belong with the "peace on earth" mantra which will never happen. Human beings will never have peace, look at history, check out current events, we lie, cheat, steal, kill, destroy, all for power over other humans. We had freedom in this country for awhile, but sadly this once great constitutional republic is long gone. Peace on Earth, Liberty for all, Freedom? Yeah right, dream on. It's just too sad.

Ah, you have to have a positive outlook. Sometimes it is hard to do....trust me. These things happen slow and the battle is ongoing. Good ideas will have their time. Freedom is a popular message.

I really hope you are right, but I just don't see it. The newer generations just don't seem to care about rights or freedom. Those that don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

That is because they think they are actually free, are way too consumed with their cell phones, and don't realize what the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Amendments really mean because their government funded education doesn't teach it to them.

Liberty Report. Continued disregard for the 4th. Where is the love of our freedom?

Napolitano speaks on the issue.

How disgusting. When will we demand better?

Ron Paul was one of only 8 to vote against the national do not call list.

Not saying the do not call list works, but who in their right mind supports telemarketing?
