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.

    Amazing book! Dr. Paul, I wish, for the sake of the Republic, that you could convey your ideology on televised “debates” as well as you can PROVE your point in your books. I have been a supporter since 2007 and have read all of your books several times. You are the only true patriot in American politics today. Thank you for your service to this once great nation of ours.

    I really wish there was another book to accompany this one to explain the general situations beyond what is given in the speeches. This would make it possible for the younger generations that have not lived through the 80′s to understand why these speeches were so important.

    I went to a public high school and then off to one of the top ranked universities in the world. However, in disgust, I have to admit that I am lacking in my knowledge of post 1950′s American history. In high school the past 60 years are summed up in one or two chapters while the creation of the country takes up the rest of the year. (could be a good thing in hindsight :D ) Then in college, if your major is not American history, you will only receive two semesters of history. One to cover pre-depression and one to cover post-depression. However the post-depression classes tend to focus on unions and labor laws instead of international affairs.

    I personally would love to know the most recent histories so I can have a clear understanding of what we really face before voting or casting my opinions.

    In review of this book. I really liked it and it proved to me the consistency of how Ron Paul votes and represents himself. I would advise everyone to read this book even if it’s in spurts of one chapter at a time.

    Specifically, take note and read carefully, page 40-56. This is Ron Pauls address to the house after his first term as the Hon. Ron Paul of the Houston Texas area.

    This insight and viewpoint is better spread than be attenuated by the bombardment of regular news media. Since the USA has been significantly involved in the world affairs, post WW-II, the American nation has the right to know the scale of the involvement; it’s cause & effects. Only after this, can we make an informed decision or pass suitable judgement.

    Peace, freedom, commerce and honest friendship…how refreshing is that concept! I haven’t seen that in my entire lifetime.

    I think mass people everywhere would welcome it. It is our most natural state of being. It’s only those with the NWO destructive craziness in their heads that cause us all trouble, and they by far are in the minority. Unfortunately, they are the one seated in our governing bodies. We are tired of being governed by the insane. WE THE PEOPLE want the sane, like Ron Paul, Schiff, Kokesh in office, now. Less ego, principled and humane.

    I can only hope that this difficult time we are globally going through is a cleansing process to rid ourselves of the darkeness and destructive among us, very soon. Perhaps we need to learn to function without money, make our choices from our heart instead, which would rid ourselves of the restrictions placed on any human being for such things as access to healthcare, education (non-Rockefeller type), jobs, homes, travel and more. Imagine for a moment if money was not in the equation. The world would still turn, but the tool, the weapon the elite use would be gone.

    These folks who have been in charge of our government, who have advised our politicians have done so many crimes against humanity that the paranoia it created in them is like a black cloud over all of us.
