Ron Paul Unveils His Peace Posse!Submitted by Marc Clair on Fri, 04/19/2013 - 11:16
This past Wednesday former Congressman and current Champion of Liberty Ron Paul unveiled his Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, an offshoot of his non-profit education organization Foundation for Rational Economics & Education (FREE). Within this new institution he has assembled a team of peace-lovin’ super friends to help him battle the evil Neoconservatives and their warmongering ways. The arena is the battlefield of ideas, and boy did Dr. Paul ever come prepared with a team of intellectual superheroes chock-full of peace credentials!
I am also a big fan of the decision to include “Prosperity” in the name of the Institute, stationed right up there with “Peace” where it belongs. This is a recognition that with war comes the destruction of wealth and poverty for the people; while with peace comes free trade and prosperity.
The Ron Paul Peace and Prosperity Institute will focus on education and getting information to the public in a fast-paced manner appropriate for the information age. Features will include a “NeoCon Watch” and a Congressional ranking system based on a “Peace and Prosperity Index”. To say that I’m bristling with excitement is like saying John McCain “sorta” likes war. Can. Not. Wait!
To get everyone acquainted with Ron Paul’s Peace Posse, let’s go through some of the big players on the Advisory Board. You can find all of the standard biographical information for each one of these guys over at the Institute’s “About Us” page, so in this space I will do something different, and find a quote or video from each member of the advisory board that best demonstrates their super powerful intellect when it comes to the issues of war and peace.
For those that are even vaguely familiar with this website or the libertarian movement, you are already well aware of Dr. Paul’s credentials advocating for a peaceful foreign policy (and if you’re not, maybe you should check out the new Ron Paul illustrated biography!) That being the case, we begin with…
Daniel McAdams, Executive Director
McAdams served as Dr. Paul’s foreign policy adviser during his time in Congress. When asked what the goals of the Institute are, he stated to some laughter “When we have no more wars, we’ll have been successful”.
