Reading Ron Paul on Libertarianism

In my recent post on Rand Paul’s views and political positions versus his father former Congressman Ron Paul’s views, I included several videos and a lot of links to various articles about the elder Dr. Paul’s statements and positions on the issues. The mainstream media seem to be referring to Rand Paul as “libertarian” just because Ron Paul is libertarian, even though Rand Paul has shown no particular adherence to the principles of libertarianism, such as the non-aggression principle, self-ownership, voluntaryism, non-interventionism, private property rights and contract rights, all of which are principles which the elder Dr. Paul definitely strongly believes in.

Robert Wenzel has a post on the neocons and the Left’s attacks and smears against Ron Paul and one of his ideological mentors Murray Rothbard. For those who may be supporting Rand Paul erroneously thinking that he shares his father’s libertarian views, Wenzel suggests reading Rothbard and Ron Paul’s works to get a good idea of those views favoring freedom. I actually was going to mention Ron Paul’s books and articles in my aforementioned post but I didn’t. So here are some of those writings.

Some of my favorite articles by Ron Paul:

Paper Money and Tyranny

The End of Dollar Hegemony

And read many other articles by Ron Paul

Books by Ron Paul:

Liberty Defined

The Revolution: A Manifesto

End the Fed (Read Chapter 2, courtesy of the Mises Institute)

Ron Paul books available for free online:

Also, read Murray Rothbard’s books as well.
