A Foreign Policy of Freedom: Peace, Commerce, and Honest Friendship

(If you read the book, please post your review below).

A Foreign Policy of Freedom: Peace, Commerce, and Honest Friendship is a powerful and inspiring collection of Ron Paul’s U.S. House floor speeches on Foreign Policy.

Ron Paul has always believed that foreign and domestic policy should be conducted according to the same principles. Government should be restrained from intervening at home or abroad because its actions fail to achieve their stated aims, create more harm than good, shrink the liberty of the people, and violate rights.

Does that proposition seem radical? Outlandish or farflung? Once you hear it stated, it makes perfect sense that there is no sharp distinction between the principles of domestic and foreign policy. They are part of the same analytical fabric. What would be inconsistent would be to favor activist government at home but restraint abroad, or the reverse: restraint at home and activism abroad.

Government unleashed behaves in its own interests, and will not restrict itself in any area of life. It must be curbed in all areas of life lest freedom suffer. Ron Paul’s singular voice on foreign affairs has done so much to keep the flame of a consistent liberty burning in times when it might otherwise have been extinguished. He has drawn public attention to the ideas of the Founders. He has alerted people to the dangers of empire. He has linked domestic and foreign affairs through libertarian analytics, even when others have been bamboozled by the lies or too intimidated to contradict them. He has told the truth, always.

For this, every American, every citizen of the world, is deeply in his debt. We can’t but be deeply grateful that Ron Paul’s prophetic words have been collected in this book. May it be widely distributed. May its lessons be absorbed by this and future generations. — Foreword to “A Foreign Policy of Freedom” by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

    I really like what Ron Paul does, but seriously, I’m from the middle east and know that without intervention the terrorists will spread their disease and brainwash more and more people until WE are the minority. They breed like rabbits!

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    Even if you don’t have an LLC or S-Corp, you can get an EIN as a sole proprietorship within minutes online via the IRS. That adds legitimacy too.
