What's That Ron Paul Guy Up To?Submitted by Marc Clair on Sun, 02/24/2013 - 16:25
It’s no secret that, while each of the founders of Lions of Liberty came to the liberty movement from various backgrounds and ideologies, our outspoken activism for the cause of liberty was largely inspired by the 2008 and 2012 Presidential runs of Dr. Ron Paul. Both of these runs, deemed “unsuccessful” in terms of the standard political paradigm, served to expose more people to the ideas of liberty than at any other time in history. This is why we are optimistic about the future, along with the fact that we now have the incredible communication vehicle known as the internet at our disposal.
But what about Ron Paul? Surely now that he’s retired from Congress and no longer in the political arena, he will walk quietly into the night clinging to his convictions and gold and waiting out the coming economic collapse, right? Well, not so much. In fact, Ron Paul is involved with so many new projects in his “retirement” that it’s becoming difficult to keep track. And that’s where your friendly neighborhood Lions of Liberty step in, to provide you with a one-stop shop of all things Ron Paul!
So what exactly has that Ron Paul guy been up to lately?
For starters, he has resumed his role as Chairman of the political extension of his two most recent Presidential campaigns, Campaign for Liberty. He also maintains his weekly column, “Texas Straight Talk”, now published on the Free Foundation’s website. In addition to that he has taken to social media and is now running his own Twitter account, which has already found him embroiled in controversy surrounding a tweet over a murdered U.S. sniper, sending neocons into a fit!
