In his latest Texas Straight Talk column, former Congressman Ron Paul reacts to the Pentagon's deadly drone attacks in Yemen, which have allegedly killed dozens of innocent civilians. This is a foreign policy of madness! If Americans continue to support this kind of bloody aggression around the world, we cannot be surprised if it leads enemies of the US government to strike back against our people in retaliation. The fact that such attacks have not occurred inside the United States since 9/11 proves that the purported terrorist threat has been overstated from the beginning.

In his latest Texas Straight Talk update, former Rep. Ron Paul reacts to the NSA's outrageous communications dragnet in light of the revelation of the secret X-Keyscore program- which ultimately allows bureaucrats to access databases containing emails, online chats and the browsing histories of millions of individuals. Indeed, Snowden's initial revelations were only the tip of the iceberg. Should we be surprised that a government who ignores the US Constitution will abide by the supposed original intent of its own Patriot Act? Video com[compliments of YouTube User: RonPaulCC2012.

In his latest Texas Straight Talk column, Dr. Ron Paul reacts to the House of Representatives' attempt to reform/de-fund the NSA's mass surveillance dragnet. Rep. Amash initiative was laudable, yet we continue to hear all the BS talking points coming out of the Pentagon, regarding so-called ' meta-data'. The truth is, that NSA data center in Utah will be storing much more than telephone meta-data! But the specifics are (of course) classified for your safety.
July 26th, 2013
In his Texas Straight Talk update for the week of July 22nd 2013, former Congressman Ron Paul spoke about Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke's final time testifying before the House Financial Services committee. Dr. Paul reminds of all of the great economic costs being temporarily delayed for the sake of public relations.
July 19th, 2013
In the latest Texas Straight Talk column, Dr. Ron Paul pleads for the people to allow the free market to decide issues of organ donations and transplants. Why should the state be the arbiter/dispensary for human organs? If a market were allowed to develop, the moral/ethical issues would be much more thoroughly decided, and donors or their heirs could receive compensation for their organs.

In his latest Texas Straight Talk column, Ron Paul points out what an unmitigated disaster that US foreign policy to Egypt has proven to be over the last few decades. Egypt was once a peaceful and relatively stable nation- non-threatening to Israel or to regional stability. Today the illegitimate Morsi government is on the way out, as the Egyptian people demand to determine their own national destiny rather than that of US/western intelligence operatives.

In his most recent Texas Straight Talk column, former Rep. Ron Paul warns Americans against the implementation of E-Verify under the guise of comprehensive immigration reform. Federal 'officials' have sought to mandate a national ID card and other methods of biometric identification for the last two decades. E-Verify will essentially give the President, and the federal government writ large, the means to control employment across the board. And it is another means to actively surveill dissenters, tax protestors and those with tax or student loan debts to the feds. Video compliments of YouTube User: RonPaulCC2012.

In the latest edition of Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk, Dr. Paul reacts to the news that- after 11+ years of a bloody, costly occupation- the Taliban's flag has been raised over Afghan embassies. The Central Asian nation is once again officially referred to as "Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan"—the name the Taliban used when they were in charge before the US attack in 2001. The outcome in Iraq is similarly problematic, yet has the foreign policy establishment learned its lesson after such failures? The intervention in Syria suggests not.

In his most recent Texas Straight Talk telephone update, former Congressman Ron Paul reacts to the Obama administration's announcement that it will again step-up US intervention in Syria, following the announcement that President Bashar Assad's regime had purportedly used chemical weapons against the so-called rebels. Yup- just like the PNAC documents once called for, the US government is in the middle of yet another war.Video compliments of YouTube User: RonPaulCC2012.

On Friday, Ron Paul Institute Founder and CEO Ron Paul spoke out against the escalation of US intervention in Syria. Now that the administration has supposedly verified the small-scale use of chemical weapons against western-backed 'rebels', this opens the door to no fly-zones, increased arming of anti-government militants and the like. The Obama administration's policy is beginning to look awfully familiar to those of the Bush administration, as Dr. Paul notes: "fixing the intelligence and facts around the already determined policy. And Congress just goes along, just as they did the last time."
June 12th, 2013
In his Texas Straight Talk column for the week of June 10th, former Rep. Ron Paul reacted to the NSA whistleblower Eric Snowden's leaks on rampant government spying. The former Congressman reminds us that these programs were, in fact, authorized by the Patriot Act. Moreover, reports of these very programs have been leaking out for years! Don't let the advocates of the total national security police state downplay the breadth and scope of US government spying on the domestic population- it's only the tip of the iceberg.

June 3rd, 2013
In this week's Texas Straight Talk column, former Rep. Ron Paul notes the most violent week in Iraq over the past five years. Ironically, our elected representatives are in the process of overthrowing the Syrian government as we speak, which will unleash a humanitarian disaster of its own! The rosy predictions by those in government are always proven a failure, as politicians view what is possible without regard for the consequences of their interventionism.

In his most recent Texas Straight Talk column, former Rep. Ron Paul addresses the national implementation of the Common Core curriculum for the nation's public schools. This standardization of the public school system is merely makes it easier for politicians and education officials to look successful due to their ever lowering the academic standards for the next generation. The Department of Education and their globalist friends will enact more social engineering through their control of the schools, which shows us more than ever the need for any and all alternatives to public education.

In his Texas Straight Talk update for the week of May 20th, former Rep. Ron Paul reminds us that nothing should surprise us when it comes to the operation of the IRS. Despite all the talk of scandal surrounding the systematic attack of opposition political groups, there will be no criminal prosecutions. Study the history of the Internal Revenue Service- it's what they do! Thanks to our elected leaders, it's virtually impossible to prosecute these people, and the agency will continue as they have been. Until we demand it's abolition, once and for all!

May 15th, 2013
In the latest Texas Straight Talk update, Ron Paul takes the time to ask the difficult questions regarding the incident in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/2011. Even if all of the most serious allegations against the Obama administration are true, who has the moral authority to call them out? Republican leadership so readily approves of interventions, that noone will ever seriously question the fundamentals of the mission. Moreover, the Democrats surely have scandals of equal or greater malfeasance under Republican administrations in their back pocket. An open and transparent investigation into Benghazi may even incriminate the 'national security' establishment, itself!? I fear the whole rotten lot is also considered too big to fail....
May 8th, 2013
In his Texas Straight Talk update for the week of May 6th, Ron Paul marveled at the Federal Reserve's insistence on repeating the same failed programs in hope of different results. Isn't there an old saying about such folly? Yes, the Fed will continue easing in order to prop up the stock market, make federal statistics appear more favorable and try to stave off economic contraction.

While a few were killed and many were maimed by the heartless Boston Marathon bombers, we mustn't overlook the attack on freedom that always coincides with these horrifying events. In the latest Texas Straight Talk column posted at The Free Foundation, Dr. Ron Paul noted that the city of 625,000 was immediately placed on lockdown and martial law to catch two alleged terrorists. The exercise of arbitrary state power was completely unsuccessful, and ultimately irrelevant to the capture of the suspects. But when events go off-script, THIS IS THEIR WAY OF DEALING WITH IT! Just imagine if their was a more widespread crisis of national significance!
April 24th, 2013
In the wake of the tragic Boston Marathon bombing, Dr. Ron Paul warned of the inevitable reaction towards more authoritarian measures by the Congress and the executive branch. In the latest Texas Straight Talk audio, the former Congressman notes the immediate resurrection of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) legislation that activists roundly defeated last year. The current version of the legislation is said to be even worse this time around, with the bill's sponsor touting it is a PATRIOT Act for the web!
April 16th, 2013
In his latest Texas Straight Talk column, Dr. Ron Paul notes the waivers granted to politically connected celebrities (Jay-Z and Beyonce) in order that they travel to Cuba. After 50 years, can't the rest of us go if we so please? We should never be surprised that insiders of all kinds will be given exemptions from official government policy. Power corrupts!
April 8th, 2013
In his latest installment of Texas Straight Talk, Ron Paul explains his enthusiasm for homeschooling as an alternative to the public education monopoly. Dr. Paul introduces the Ron Paul curriculum in light of the Homeschool convention he spoke at on Sunday in Cincinnati.
April 5th, 2013
In his latest installment of Texas Straight Talk, former Congressman Ron Paul reacts to the ongoing banking crisis in Europe and the outrageous theft taken directly from bank accounts in exchange for a bailout from the ECB. Government's cannot be trusted when they see their power hanging on by a thread, and the EU superstate is the culmination of generations of elitist technocrats.
March 18th, 2013
In his latest Texas Straight Talk update, former Rep. Ron Paul talks about the latest attempts to put together a budget in Washington DC. While Rep. Paul Ryan put forward his most credible budget thus far (balances over 10 years), the Democrats clearly do not believe that it's even necessary! Video compliments of YouTube User: VoteRonPaul12.
March 11th, 2013
In his Texas Straight Talk update, the Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul reacted to his son's historic filibuster in the US Senate. Dr. Paul reminds us all that this is not a partisan issue, it is about the growth of the President's power, and the Congress' unwillingness to provide appropriate oversight to actions of the executive branch.

March 4th, 2013
In his Texas Straight Talk update for the week of March 5th, former Rep. Ron Paul comments on the sequester package which just went into effect, and what should have been done, instead. This whole debate shows just how far the media is from taking the debt/deficit crisis seriously. Moreover, if the economy were actually operating under the strength of good federal policy, pundits wouldn't be claiming that a slight dip in the growth of government spending would be an economic disaster!
