Video: Ron Paul's 1990 Speech at International Society for Individual Liberty Conf., San Francisco, CA

Ron Paul: How to Sell Liberty

Published on Aug 31, 2012 by LibertarianismDotOrg

Dr. Ron Paul has been a three-time candidate for President of the United States; as a Libertarian in 1988 and as a Republican in 2008 and 2012. He served for many years as the U.S. Representative for Texas's 14th congressional district, and is widely known for his libertarian views and his criticism of the federal government's foreign, domestic, and monetary policies. He is the author of several books including The Case for Gold (1982), A Foreign Policy of Freedom (2007), The Revolution: A Manifesto (2008), and Liberty Defined (2011).

In this video Dr. Paul speaks to a crowd in San Francisco in 1990 at an International Society for Individual Liberty conference. Having run for office under the Libertarian Party's banner two years prior, Dr. Paul shares his experience on how to sell libertarianism to make it palatable to both liberals and conservatives.

I am Ron Paul.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Thanks for posting

Got me something new to listen to tonight :)

you're welcome.

still can't believe the man's words ring true then, as now, vice versa.

sadly all that really means is that not enough of the world have heeded his warnings, YET, but we're still here, and WILL be here to carry on the message!

Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul = Liberty Rock!

I never get tired of watching the man's full principled consistency on display.

literally, it's as if he made the speech yesterday!

Same content, same fire, same warnings, with rest of the sheeple world blind asleep...

but my fire's been lit! and RNC hasn't changed that one bit!
