About

Summary

Throughout his political career, Ron Paul has served as one of Congress’s strongest opponents of military interventionism. During thirty years of dedicated service, Congressman Paul has delivered hundreds of speeches advancing the idea of applying free market principles to foreign policy. In a compelling compilation of those speeches, this book offers a comprehensive look at Dr. Paul’s foreign policy philosophy throughout the years—and its relevance to key events in recent US history.

This collection documents Dr. Paul’s often-prescient warnings to Congress regarding the consequences of military interventionism. He argues that numerous conflicts in the past few decades, from the Korean Conflict to the most recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, have caused unnecessary deaths abroad, deterioration of the country’s international reputation, and weakened civil liberties at home. The collection presents a clear picture of a man who has often served as a courageous lone supporter of a more reasoned and less reactionary foreign policy approach.
