    1. A highly recommended collection of Dr. Ron Paul’s speeches while in Congress between 1976 and 2007.It is a nice overview of several key topics that make up his platform, and very much worth the time to read. A consistent, scathing rebuke of corporatism and of the Republican Party particularly.Also, it became amusing ( you gotta laugh, what else can you do ? ) when one considers how many creative ways Dr. Paul expressed to his colleagues the fact that the U.S. Government is flat broke. It was a [...]

    2. I read this book as a participant of freedombookclubThe message that resounds throughout this collection of speeches is that the federal government of the United States ought not to intervene in true free market capitalism. It was a very consistent book. A key theme of this book is how the Federal Reserve supports the federal government's deficit spending by printing more and more money (backed by nothing but the threat of nuclear annihilation [that's what I say, not Ron Paul]), which is, by def [...]

    3. I love all of Ron Pauls books, but this one has a lot of congressional excerps which makes it a hard read because they arn't explained thoroughly. It mostly just shows how bad congress is. Ron Paul explains something happening and they say don't wurry we got it. Then he asks them later about it and they brush him off like he's crazy. Eventhough the congressional notes prove he warned them. It also shows some bills he tried to pass like social security preservation act. A simple bill that states [...]

    4. I remember sitting down to watch a Republican Presidential Debate for the first time. There was Gingrich, Santorum, Romney, and Paul. I remember thinking that all that was being said was rubbish until Ron Paul began to speak. but then he was cut off or ignored or seen as unimportant. When I googled him, I wasn't at all surprised to see I wasn't the only one who'd noticed the similarities between him and the youth of America- so often overlooked, ignored, and underestimated.

    5. I actually read this when it first came out. Dr Ron Paul, while earning the approbrium of America, is the only politician talking sound money (pun intended). Ron Paul pointed out last year that the inflationary dollar is robbing Americans of their savings and will generate crises unimagined. The world laughed. Well, after October the world was wrong and Dr Paul was right. Dr Paul's book is like a lite version of Ludwig von Mises applied to America.

    6. This is a compilation of Ron Paul's speeches in congress. So it's not the best format, but it covers a lot of ground and has interesting points, especially about monetary policy.

    7. Excellent: illustrates his principles of following the constitution and not redistributing wealth. Somewhat repititious in places, but congress needs it.

    8. As a fun read, not so much since it is predominantly Congressional transcripts. As proof of Mr. Paul's prescience, excellent. You will be missed in Congress Mr. Paul.
