Dr. Ron Paul is a passionate advocate & champion of liberty. His enthusiasm and love of peace has captivated the minds of millions across multiple generations. The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity is a project of Dr. Paul’s Foundation for Rational Economics and Education (F.R.E.E.), founded in the 1970s as an educational organization. The Institute continues and expands Dr. Paul’s lifetime of public advocacy for a peaceful foreign policy and the protection of civil liberties at home.
If Ron Paul ever appears on the Outer Limits of Inner Truth, these are questions we would like to ask him.
Dr. Paul, who were some of your greatest teachers – people who challenged you to challenge yourself and become a better person because of it?
In America there’s seem to be a common consensus that a leader who shows military force is considered “tough & strong.” Would you argue that the exact opposite is true? Do you think that showing restraint & seeking peaceful solutions requires a much greater amount of patience, critical thinking, and mental balance?
Thomas Jefferson penned the phrase “all men are created equal.” Yet in the early era of American history, slavery was the norm, women couldn’t vote and American Indians were being slaughtered. Do you think that there are some aspects of the Declaration of Independence & the Constitution that are brilliant ideas but, theoretically speaking have never been fully put into practice?
If one looks at the birth & death cycle of nations, what are some of the most common reasons why nations rise & fall and what do you see as the long term outlook for the United States?
There’s a common expression called “diversity is strength” that is often echoed in the media. Do you think that citizens that don’t share the common respect, knowledge & reverence for the founding laws of the nation for which they abide aren’t really fellow country men at all? Is a nation’s identity & strength only as durable as the amount of people who collectively stand together under its ideals?
Many Americans claim to “love” the Troops yet, many of them aren’t even aware of the very freedoms that these Troops are allegedly dying to defend. Do you think that this is hypocritical & disrespectful? Also do you think that if Americans truly loved the Troops that they would do everything possible to ensure they were not sent to be killed in conflicts that did not protect the domestic homeland of the US?
What are your thoughts the coming global financial collapse and the end of the petrodollar? How do you think both America and the world will respond? Do you foresee the pain from this event being so great that it will likely force people to rediscover the Constitution or instead drive them at lighting speed into the arms of tyranny? Will America still be respected on the world stage and will it still remain under one centralized government?
Of all the foreign and domestic actions that America has taken in this course of it’s history, which do you think are the top three where America exemplified goodness & high morality and which do you think are the top three where America exemplified immoral conduct?
America at its inception appeared to have a majority of citizens who were aware of their Constitutional liberties. What do you think are some the reasons why many of today’s Americans aren’t aware of their Constitutional liberties despite living in the age of information?
If the citizens of a nation lose their capability to think critically, are they doomed because they cannot correctly identify an emergence of tyranny before it’s too late and are they also doomed because they cannot indentify what true freedom is even it arrived on their doorstep in an Amazon box?
Dr. Paul we’re going to play a quick game called match the Founding Father with the Ron Paul Institute Adviser. I’ll name a Founding Father. Please tell us which institute member closest emulates that Founding Father:
Judge Andrew Napolitano
Profesor Robert Higgs
Rep. John Duncan Jr.
Do you think if early Americans had been living in an era of cell phones & so many technological distractions that they would still would have come together and fought the Revolution?
Dr. Paul of all the things you’ve accomplished in your life, what three are you most proud of and why?
