Fantastic!

He is amazing and brilliant. True lover of freedom and liberty and so much like Dr Paul. He would be perfect for VP!

Not sure of his foreign policy...

...but if RP were to choose Williams, that would be huge. I'd imagine he would pull at least some of the African American community votes. Plus, it would make those racist accusations completely irrelevant. I'd imagine even some neo-cons would be on board.

My first choice is Andrew Napolitano, but WW might be the better choice as far as electability goes.

Well-explained

His "certificate of service" literary device is a great tool that we should employ in our activist efforts.

+ Follow the Cooperative principle
+ Civility first
+ Constructive comments

Middle-aged and older

Middle-aged and older Philadelphians have had the pleasure of Dr. Williams' company, in electronic form, since the early '80s if I recall correctly. Dr. Williams is a Philadelphia native.

Dr. Williams was a good friend of, frequent guest of and sometime guest host for late Philadelphia Radio Talk Show icon Irv Homer, who broadcast on WWDB-FM for many of his 30+ year career.

Irv was instrumental in bringing Dr. Williams on as a semi-regular on a Sunday morning local "issues" show that was broadcast on Philadelphia's dominant TV station, WPVI-6, as a compliment to the national interview shows.

FOR RP VP CHOICE AGAIN!

reedr3v's picture

He's a fine economist, but unless his

foreign policy position has changed, I think he was somewhat hawkish.

That Disappointing

And so at odds with his thinking on economics. How would the government fund war without taxation?

The more I learn about liberty, the more opposed I become to a standing army. So long as the second amendment is upheld, the American people themselves are perfectly capable of handling an invasion.

The C-Span interview below is...

...worth watching.

Dr. Williams was interviewed on C-Span March 18, 2012...

I'm adding the latest interview of Walter Williams on C-Span below.

Well worth watching. And interesting timing. Dr. Williams was one of Ron Paul's considerations as VP in 2008.

Dr. Williams is an avid bicycle rider as is Dr. Paul!

What a great, correct-thinker he is.

I wish I had the time and money to take his class at George Mason U. The man is amazing!

I especially love the section where he explains that politicians are elected to LEGALLY do what we as individuals CANNOT LEGALLY TO ANOTHER CITIZEN.

That is, to take from ONE American and give it to ANOTHER American who the government DEEMS worthy.

As Dr. Williams explains, this is THEFT, either way you look at it.

Here is the new C-Span video:

I agree...

Amazing thinker.

Thanks for the video update - it's better now.

Dr. Williams has many useful points we can use in trying to RE-Educate America.

The populace has been poisoned by the Dept. of Education.

I AGREE!

That's why I posted this.

I have always loved Dr. Walter Williams ---lots of name

recognition...totally smart, totally focused on Economics, totally comes packaged with a wonderful sense of humor.....and very very down to earth.

I think I even like him more than Napolitano for VP.

Do yourself a favor and watch the short video above.

No one explains it better than Dr. Walter E. Williams.
