Dr. Ron Paul returns to the show to discuss his most recent book “The Revolution at Ten Years.” Scott explains why Ron Paul’s “Giuliani moment” is the reason why millions of people have become libertarians. Scott asks whether American strength of markets and wealth can overcome the welfare/warfare state for a considerable time longer; Dr. Paul makes the case why the debt is the reason the current American way cannot be sustained. Paul then explains the importance of sound money and how monetary policy leads to the creation of artificial bubbles and regular market crashes. Finally, Paul says that libertarians should bolster the anti-war movement through coalitions with progressives.
Former congressman and American hero Ron Paul is the host of the Ron Paul Liberty Report and director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. Dr. Paul is the author of numerous books, including Swords into Plowshares and The Revolution: A Manifesto. Follow him on Twitter, @RonPaul.
