For Liberty: How the Ron Paul Revolution Watered the Withered Tree of Liberty

As the 2007-08 presidential campaign cycle offered up the usual slate of Washington insiders, Ron Paul, an obscure Congressman from Texas brought an alternative voice that challenged the political establishment.

Advocating a philosophy of sound money, a non-interventionist foreign policy, strict Constitutionalism, and individual liberty, Dr. Paul inspired a unique grassroots movement unmatched in American history – the repercussions of which continue to reverberate today and into the future of the American psyche.

For Liberty: How the Ron Paul Revolution Watered the Withered Tree of Liberty follows this historic campaign from the perspective of grassroots activists, and showcases the unique, often bizarre, yet groundbreaking projects they undertook as they brushed aside traditional campaign methodology.

    Ron Paul 2012

  • AtheistAltar

    lol, yes, Paul is not an expert at making sound bites. God forbid the neocons watching the Republican debates should pause and think for a moment!

    I just find the sluggishness startling. You have Giuliani out there saying, “9/11” every other word and Paul gives a clear, concise response and he’s labeled the nutjob. Go figure.

    Haha, nice shot at Rush Limbaugh there. “Those libertarians need to stop blogging and leave their mom’s basement and get a girlfriend”, how about you read some Spooner, Rothbard, and works on Austrian econ and get back to me….Dumbasses.

  • worldsgreatestboxer

    the irs is just another way for those rich bastards in politics to line thier pockets with more money anyways we should get rid of it im for that

  • jpcl21

    Thanks for all the hard work guys! Keep it up!

  • I think there should be a sequel to this! About this pinhead who’s currently in the white house and the Presidential campaign. Also in the “08” GOP primaires either the the elections were rigged or the American people voted blindly for these Neo-Conservative candidates. I am waiting for sequel and 2012.

    What was wrong with that lady, “their just kids” she acted as if the guy was handing out pornography or something.

    What has happened to our country when parents are afraid to give their kids a copy of the constitution?

    We need to wake up this country! Lets stand up and make the changes that are needed to save this country before it’s to late.

    I will never forget Dr Paul speaking at a rally in a Simi Valley hotel shortly after the Republican debates down the street at the Reagan Libray… Simply one of the most incredible moments, gatherings, & energies Ive ever been present to. Thanks for the memories

  • INDK

    Ron Paul Revolution!
    Save The Constitution!

    I’m making a bunch of signs saying that and hanging them around my town. Please people, stand up and start doing something too, We cannot afford as a country for this man to not be elected in 2012. We The People will keep the Ron Paul Revolution alive!

  • powercomm

    Were the voting machines were used? No more voting machines. i believe He won the election if it were voted without the voting machines. Get rid of the voting machines. They could have been cheated.

    What an inspiring video, and don’t lose heart America. Watching this video from England made me realise what a long way we still have to go compared to you guys. You may think the world is against you, but you have so many advantages over me – you have the constitution, the figurehead and the strong belief in libertarian ideas, we have none of those three things.

    Ron Paul is the modern day William Wallace

  • LesiureBoy

    I Love you Ron Paul!!! You have my vote ANY day out of the week and twice on Sunday.

  • knowitall870

    This was very motivational, I can’t wait until 2012 when there are even more supporters. Kudos to the people responsible for this movie, it must have taken a ton of time and effort.
