The Hill: Retiring Ron Paul to take his case for Liberty to college campuses next year

Retiring Rep. Ron Paul plans to deliver speeches on college campuses next year and beyond, continuing his message of liberty and reducing the size of the federal government.

In an interview with The Hill, the Texas Republican clearly indicated that he isn’t ready for the rocking chair.

The 77-year-old physician-politician said, “I'm excited about spending more time on college campuses, not less. College campuses will still be on my agenda. That's where the action is."

Ron Paul Becomes a Perpetual Energy Machine

When he speaks to crowds.

Defeat the panda-industrial complex

I am dusk icon. anagram me.


That is all. Perhaps he can get to Europe, South America, etc.

After All...

...going from college to college is pretty much what made up his campaign.

We need to get an early start on 2016: Support Rand PAC 2016



We need some Paulstock 2013

We need some Paulstock 2013 shirts with lists of cities please.


Perhaps we can follow him like they used to follow the Grateful Dead - I'd be there!


THE PAUL!!! plant those seeds doctor, we will do the rest. Don't forget RUTGERS!!!

Ron Paul is a very wise man.

I often wondered if he wanted the job as president.. during this campaign he did not have the same spark as he did in the last campaign. My suspicion was all along that he was setting up Rand for 2016.

Is going to be interesting to see how the next 4 years turn out.

It would be cool if Dr. Paul

It would be cool if Dr. Paul would teach a course at Mises along with his speaking tour. That could give mises some amazing exposure resulting in more business for mises and more people with a solid understanding of economics.

UMASS Amherst

It would be great to see him here in Western Mass. I would def call out sick from work to drive 30 min to go see him. Hell I flew to Tampa to see him....

Texas State University-San Marcos needs a Doctor of Liberty!

We could use a freedom enema.

Please visit San Marcos, Texas Dr. Paul!

If the President of Texas State could get rid of the faculty, staff and students ( as long as the money still came in and the cleaning was still done ) she would. All she would like at the University is 20,000 administrators and a thousand Vice Presidents, then she would be happy.

Seems to me........

Seems to me that this is the PTB's worst nightmare. The fact that college aged kids who have been through at least 12-18 years of socialist indoctrination at school and on television are supporting Ron Paul and libertarian ideals has got to scare the crap out of them. They have to be wondering why their brainwashing is not working. In my opinion, this is why they seek to gain control of the internet so aggressively.

Maybe that's why they cast Libertarians as Freddy Krueger's?

AT some point those attempting to indoctrinate free minds realize all their best efforts are backfiring.

Plato's Cave doesn't work when the prisoners are walking in and out by their own free will. The shadows on the wall become a comedy and the puppet masters become clowns.

They've glimpsed their future.

Thank you for your comment.

I'm not as depressed after reading that.

You sir are correct, Our generation is done with all this Bullshit. We got the time, the resources and the Energy to push real change once we understand the goal and the name of the game.

A lot of members on here are so negative about the future but many do not understand the power that the Information Age brings. The Federal Reserve is in the spotlight now and that is a HUGE problem for TPTB.

That's awesome!

If there's one age group that needs waking up it's my age group. We go to class in the morning and and listen to Socially Marxist, Economically Progressive professors, we open our textbooks paid for by federal grants and/or fedearally-subsidized student loans and read Socially Marxist, Economically Progressive propaganda. We then go to the library and check out class-assigned Socially Marxist, Economically Progressive books for projects that we know if not presented with enough Leftist, Progressive twist will receive a poor grade. Furthermore, the stuff that passes for educational documentaries on PBS and to some extent the History Channel are Socially Marxist and Economically Progressive. And people wonder why millennials are easily-herded sheep for the Democratic Party? People think GM, the oil industry, and Monsanto are federally-advantaged entities? That's nothing compared to the tax-payer-subsidized Progressive Movement.

It is political suicide for any Conservative or Libertarian to support the Education Industrial Complex, from the National Endowment of the Humanities, all the way down to Pell Grants.

Dixie-Paelo---i agree 100%. I

Dixie-Paelo---i agree 100%. I do not go to college but other wise all this sounds very familar. I am 27, you must be somewhere in my gen. This is a real, real good idea for Ron. Speeches like his Campaigns but now not so much pressure and stupid questions from the media. If people want to listen to him they can. Pretty sweet i say

*Wisconsin Constitution* Article I, Section 25 "The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security,defense,hunting,recreation or any other law-abiding purpose"

Dr. Paul seems very focused on the college aged people.

This leads me to believe that he is preparing for something good to happen in our country waaay down the road. I will not pretend that I know better than Dr. Paul but, it always seemed to me that if he'd spend just a third of that time talking to older veterans in VA Hall & Hospitals, and talking to fauxnews seniors in assisted living places, the message would reach critical mass, since he is both a veteran and a senior. That message would have their support in just as great numbers, if only he would speak his message to them directly. Instead, it's like they don't matter to our cause. If they don't, then we are no where near achieving our ultimate goal.

I don't regret the time and effort I put into our cause and will continue to be active to spread the message and support our candidates. It's just that I feel very sad, disappointed, that I probably won't live to see the day we finally get our freedom back.

Sorry but, these kinds of posts, which really are intended to be upbeat and positive, just depress the hell out of me.

RP has constantly stated that

RP has constantly stated that any revolutionary change in a society has always had a large contingent of young people. So, if you look at any upheaval it has been carried out by young people who are unencumbered by children and family obligations and who also have the energy and health to carry through with such things.

RP is just planting the seeds in fertile grounds he knows have the greatest chance of bearing the most fruit. Don't despair, the outreach to older people you hope for should probably be carried out by us.

It has been being carried out by us. Ron Paul already has

a very large contingent of young people. Young people are more active and can easily get the message out to their peers. The fact that is where he is still predominently focusing his attention, tells me I will not live to see the fruit of my and other's of my generation, labors. Those I speak of will probably die without ever having another taste of the freedom we enjoyed when we were younger. We aren't that close to our graves, yet, either.

yes you will live to see it

All of the door to door and face to face work in the malls I did when I was a youth have now come to fruition. It takes time, but it will happen. The door to door work your generation did to get the word out about Dr. Paul and the message of Liberty will pay off in spades down the line. This is what gives me hope in these times. Every person you changed will be changed forever. Once a person sees something it is like it was always there.

I continue to talk to people now even more because I have seen how this propagates over time. You don't have the benefit of that so you are discouraged. This is why Ron Paul has so much hope in his heart now. He can see the future that all of you will push forward.

don't be so down.

Kent State changed the mood of the country. Only so much shit will sell and our movement will have its moment. It is our job to stay optimistic and keep pushing forward with the message of peace.

Be the change you wish to see in the world. -Ghandi

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Know your CONSTITUTION! Dr. Paul has said this time and again.

Dr. Paul has tried to tell us to know the Constitution like the back of our hands to defend ourselves against atrocities like these. Carl Miller explains why below:

This guy, CM, is BRILLIANT. Watch part 2 first to see what's possible. Part 1 are important case laws. This stuff needs to be spread around like wild fire. This is how we free ourselves fr. slavery
