Want to Help the Cause? Know Your Stuff

If we don’t know our stuff – really know it – we can’t win. We’re up against more than just Romney and Obama. The schools and the media feed the public a phony version of U.S. history and a diet of pro-government propaganda. We have to be able to counter that propaganda with the truth.

That’s why Tom Woods’s brand new Liberty Classroom is so important and valuable for all Ron Paul supporters. There you can learn real U.S. history, not to mention Austrian economics and the whole history of Western civilization, from people Ron Paul trusts. All while driving your car.

If you don’t know Tom, he’s one of the most sought-after speakers and writers in the liberty movement, and held in high regard by Dr. Paul. Check out his credentials.

Please take just a moment to watch Tom’s brief video, directed specifically at Daily Paulers. Then head over to his Liberty Classroom, and sign up!

I'm here to educate you

I'm here to educate you

Autobiography

Are a preference and surprisingly you do learn a lot from them other than personal information. I should have included biographies to be fair. I'm not complaining about Woods or his work, I just didn't appreciate this advert and felt I was being exploited...again.

Freedom

If people didn't work for free then families who cant feed themselves would die. I agree that education should be free and for all and if you truly want to spread the truth to the masses, then you shouldn't charge for it. Only the wealthy are sold paradise, which is precisely why it isn't.

"Roll up roll up, 'End Capitalism' T-Shirts! Only $15"

How?

How can education be free? I don't know many people that can be teachers or professors on a $0 salary. Much less the books, buildings, etc. Please explain where you find all these free things.

Literally

You are all taking me too literally. Nobody said anything about shifting away from free markets etc., jeez. We all earn a living and that's fine. However education must be free/ freedom/ opportunity. If it isn't then who is being served? Who will learn? Only those privileged enough and with the notion to care. So obviously I mean the RECIPIENT of education should get it free. If it isn't it defeats the purpose to educate, as only those who are already educated and who have purchasing power are willing to absorb more.

That's not about intelligence or capacity. It's circumstantial who has the opportunity to take advantage of their fortune. Not many are that fortunate so you need to empathise and understand. If this was given rather than sold, then it would be absorbed further a field. Everyone here talks of Revolution and how the masses don't get it. Why would they get it? Even those who are reachable would only see profiteering and therefore wouldn't buy into it. People are left to be ignorant and we are left frustrated because these people vote for the likes of Romney, Bush, Obama and whoever else is forcefed to them. Education your way is therefore wasted.

Only those interested buy things and these people are already on-board. So what about those who could be converted? What about those who can't afford to pay? It is as much to do with circumstance that holds these people down and therefore they have no conscious selection in the first place. Give up the profit on education and who knows what can achieved. Most 'money people' in my experience, mainly care about having more than the next person or more than their fair share in relation to others.

There is no need to exaggerate my point and create a communist bloc in your heads. Free Markets create winners and losers and that's life, but each new generation born into this inequality are thereafter divided. There are vastly more uneducated than educated. Create an equal footing for each generation, provide unbiased education and you'll find many who are in power now (because of good circumstances but are unscrupulous) would fail and many from unfortunate backgrounds (but who have wisdom and integrity and who would otherwise never be heard of) will rise.

Has this overly commercial, under educated, privileged system worked thus far? Depends who you are really doesn't it?

No offense

I respect your opinion but he isn't charging for freedom. He's charging for his hours of labor teaching and studying to make it easier on others that want to pay for his services. That is freedom at work.

Fair Point

Just sick of being sold to, everywhere my eyes rest. I come here to see the latest info on Ron Paul not for this advertisement, that belongs on the right hand side of this website. Individual profit is all anything ever amounts to. Who's getting a back hander to endorse this?

Look at these presidential campaigns too. How truly disgusting the amount of money involved is in real terms. It's out of hand. An absolute disgrace to everyone who struggles, yet millions are blown and willingly given as if it's a game. Before you or others come back with "well that is the game" - I get it. I don't have to like it though. It should be stopped or at least capped and every Presidential hopeful go out at least equal on a financial budget. Private corporations and banks shouldn't even be involved and politicians should be salaried and not permitted to have private ventures elsewhere. If politics was more like this, then much more would be done and the treasury would have a surplus.

Sorry to go off point but I'm a ranter.

Re: Fair Point

Concerning advertisers, please read chapter 9, The Advertiser (page 57), in Walter Block's book Defending the Undefendable. It can be downloaded here thanks to the Mises Institute:

Re: Great Idea!!!

Tom Woods helped run RevolutionPac, which meant that he was, by law, not allowed to help with running the official campaign.

Sounds wonderful, but if I had to base a membership choice on the demo videos alone, then I sadly wouldn’t be that impressed. Someone please tell me Libertyclassroom does get better than that??

And please no offense to Tom, I enjoy Tom immensely, and feel he’s a fantastic advocate for peace and liberty :) However, the other instructor demos put me half to sleep!

With that being said, I rather pay for instructors who can not only educationally inform me, but who can also stimulate, inspire, and blow my mind like Stefan Molyneux does at freedomainradio.com. As well as many others, such as Ryan Dawson at Rys2sense.com, and Larken Rose at larkenrose.com. Granted, these gentlemen are not in the business of being professors, however their intellect in economics, geo-politics, history and liberty are just as superb to me.

I would also hope that the LC will be similar to the wonderful history and economic books by Richard Maybury and his Uncle Eric Books. Although that’s just my opinion :) and I look forward to hearing any reviews from the libertyclassoom.com members.

Peace and liberty~

I joined and I believe it was money well spent.

yea...

They are boring to watch, and in some cases listen to. Tom Woods does alright because he is so well spoken. Jewell includes powerpoints behind his lecture which helps out. Gutzman is boring because he doesn't back up what he says with direct quotes from characters, laws, speeches or other sources.
It is better to listen to while driving then to sit and watch at the computer. The audio and video are both downloadable.

The real perk is the forums where you can ask questions and get responses from published, knowledgeful authors.

help needed concerning Citizens United and Glass-Steagall-thanks

Hello, I was defending Ron Paul on a forum and I got this as a reply, I'm not sure what to reply to this, any help?
thanks
w

"Yes I follow the news. Remind me of the bills Ron Paul has sponsored and garnered support for, to roll back Citizens United. Enact Glass-Steagall 2.0?

No, Ron Paul is on his steed named Liberty tilting at Fed windmills. His steed is also a Unicorn which will fart out an end to corporatocracy as a natural consequence without having to do any direct work toward that end. Or so we are told. Laws like we had in the old days which prevented this sort of nonsense, are just too DIRECT a method for him. All you have to do is join him Sancho, and winning the fair maiden is an INEVITABILITY! Despite the fact that's he SOOO hard-right on slashing taxation and regulation and enshrining property rights as the ONLY end-all-be-all way above any sort of public or common good.

I was a Libertarian for 2 decades. I'm familiar with all the arguments. They are BS. The lure of the collateral benefits are snake oil & shinola."

It's extremely difficult to

It's extremely difficult to counter an ad hominem because he avoids directly confronting the issues.

1. "Remind me of the bills Ron Paul has sponsored and garnered support for, to roll back Citizens United. Enact Glass-Steagall 2.0?" He's working with the assumption that everyone on the left has that these are good bills to begin with. The way the question is framed, you have to defend RP's lack of support for a bill which he's already decided is correct. He doesn't examine the issue to any degree.

2. "Ron Paul is on his steed named Liberty tilting at Fed windmills." Totally pointless attack aimed at reducing RP to the absurd. Easy to do when you disregard the facts.

3. "His steed is also a Unicorn which will fart out an end to corporatocracy as a natural consequence without having to do any direct work toward that end. Or so we are told. Laws like we had in the old days which prevented this sort of nonsense, are just too DIRECT a method for him." Okay, here's the closest he's come to an actual argument. Unfortunately, it's ass backwards and ignores all of RP's platforms. Why? Because his ENTIRE CAMPAIGN IS AN ATTEMPT TO PUT CORPORATE WELFARE TO AN END. When's the last time you heard Paul say we need agri-business subsidies or more money flowing into the CMIC? Never. Ask him what the hell he's talking about because I get the feeling even he has no idea.

4. "All you have to do is join him Sancho, and winning the fair maiden is an INEVITABILITY! " Again, an attempt to reduce RP's logic to absurdity without showing evidence.

5. "Despite the fact that's he SOOO hard-right on slashing taxation and regulation and enshrining property rights as the ONLY end-all-be-all way above any sort of public or common good." Okay, so this dude is against cutting taxes.. obvious point of disagreement. So, does he show how property rights are somehow antithetical to a just society? No, he does not. He simply states that there's a "common good" which is the very groundwork of all "corporatism" and corruption (and socialism mind you.)

6. "I was a Libertarian for 2 decades. I'm familiar with all the arguments. They are BS. The lure of the collateral benefits are snake oil & shinola." IF this tool was a libertarian for 2 decades, he's obviously managed not to soak up one bit of the logic behind it. This is manifest in his total substitute of argument for attack.

This guy is highly suspect in my opinion. I've got my tinfoil hat on when I say he's probably got an ulterior motive (maybe pushing more neocon books on Amazon like I've so frequently seen) and has most definitely never been a libertarian. Why do I say that? Because I've never met a Libertarian turned Statist. Certainly never heard any logical arguments for it either. And this hank hasn't convinced me either.

You should be able to deconstruct this non argument with 15 minutes of logic. Post up your progress!

Nice

Nice one.

I'm a member

I have been looking forward to this a long time! That being said... it is ok.

Tom Woods is great, he is the best thing about it. Jason Jewell is fantastic! The forums are fun because you can discuss with multiple authors.

Kevin Gutzman is not great or fantastic, reminds me of the jerk professors I had to deal with at the University of Michigan. I respect his knowledge and academic history but not his personality.

I'm a poor college student...

And can only afford $100 for one year. I see it is an annual renewal. Can I opt out before I have to pay again? So, basically, I want this for a year.... Is this possible?

You can

You can buy it for one year, download all the audio/video and not renew.

You will then just miss out on new courses, live courses and the forum interaction.

There is an option to link the site to others and if people sign up through your link you get $20. So get 5 to join and it is free for you. Tom Woods made it really easy to do.

Thanks

Sounds like a plan.

Just signed up

I'm excited. My wife will start having an 80 minute work commute, so she can get her learn on also.

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

I highly recommend it to

I highly recommend it to Daily Paul-ers. Much of what we are taught or is floating around on the internet is either distorted or plain incorrect. I completely disagree with the comment below that says you can learn this on Wikipedia. If you are new to the movement, this is a great place to start. Those who are well-read will also find it very interesting.

Also if more of us join, Tom will be able to add more courses. We will have more lively discussions. It's a great place to meet liberty minded ople.

If the paulbots surprised the world with their well reasoned arguments and knowledge on intent blogs, wait till you see a paulbots 2.0.

Awesome!

I'm In!
