Janet Yellen is Right: She Can’t Predict the Future

rp-weekly-button_299x123

By: Ron Paul

This week I found myself in rare agreement with Janet Yellen when she admitted that her economic predictions are likely to be wrong. Sadly, Yellen did not follow up her admission by handing in her resignation and joining efforts to end the Fed. An honest examination of the Federal Reserve’s record over the past seven years clearly shows that the American people would be better off without it. (more…)

New Military Spending Bill Expands Empire But Forbids Debate on War

rp-weekly-button_299x123

By: Ron Paul

On Friday the House passed a massive National Defense Authorization for 2016 that will guarantee US involvement in more wars and overseas interventions for years to come. The Republican majority resorted to trickery to evade the meager spending limitations imposed by the 2011 budget control act – limitations that did not, as often reported, cut military spending but only slowed its growth.

NSA Spying Ruled Illegal, But Will Congress Save the Program Anyway?

rp-weekly-button_299x123

By: Ron Paul

This week the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the NSA’s metadata collection program was not authorized in US law. The PATRIOT Act, under which the program began, was too vague, the court found. But the truth is the Act was intended to be vague so that the government could interpret it in the broadest possible way. (more…)

UPDATE: Letter from 2014 Ron Paul Scholar – Aaron DeGroot

Bruce Rauner and Aaron DeGroot

Greetings,

In a few weeks, I’ll be wrapping up my tenure at George Mason University and will be receiving my diploma for a B.S. in Economics. The past four years have been a blessing, where I’ve met dozens of liberty-lovers, not just from the GMU Economics department faculty, but from student organizations such as our Young Americans for Liberty and College Republicans chapters.

USA FREEDOM Act: Just Another Word for Lost Liberty

rp-weekly-button_299x123

By: Ron Paul

Apologists for the National Security Agency (NSA) point to the arrest of David Coleman Headley as an example of how warrantless mass surveillance is necessary to catch terrorists. Headley played a major role in the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attack that killed 166 people.

While few would argue that bringing someone like Headley to justice is not a good thing, Headley’s case in no way justifies mass surveillance. For one thing, there is no “terrorist” exception in the Fourth Amendment. Saying a good end (capturing terrorists) justifies a bad means (mass surveillance) gives the government a blank check to violate our liberties.  (more…)

Dear Campaign for Liberty Foundation donors,

This coming week will be my last at Crandall University for the year. With regards to academics, I have been able to make significant progress, maintaining a GPA above 4.0.

I am especially looking forward to the next year of my B.A., as I will be eligible to enroll in the certification program for Teaching English as a Second Language.

The Real War on the Middle Class

rp-weekly-button_299x123

By: Ron Paul

One of the great ironies of American politics is that most politicians who talk about helping the middle class support policies that, by expanding the welfare-warfare state, are harmful to middle-class Americans. Eliminating the welfare-warfare state would benefit middle-class Americans by freeing them from exorbitant federal taxes, including the Federal Reserve’s inflation tax. (more…)

The New Militarism: Who Profits?

rp-weekly-button_299x123

By: Ron Paul

Militarism and military spending are everywhere on the rise, as the new Cold War propaganda seems to be paying off. The new “threats” that are being hyped bring big profits to military contractors and the network of think tanks they pay to produce pro-war propaganda.

Here are just a few examples: (more…)
