I've been meaning to post this audio for the last few weeks, waiting for some higher quality audio. Unfortunately, these recordings were taken off of a UStream livestream of the events. From July 31 through August 3rd, the Young Americans for Liberty held their 5th Annual National Convention at George Mason University's Arlington Law Campus. Over three hundred youth leaders- representing 46 states and 200 universities- came to organize, train, and hear from the liberty movement's new generation of leaders on Capitol Hill. Links to the original media sources are included in the file description; included audio can be heard in the order listed below:

On Monday, former GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul called the Obama administration's secret surveillance of Americans' phone calls "very dangerous." Dr. Paul, currently the chairman of the Campaign for Liberty, told Newsmax TV that he is concerned about the public's right to privacy and enforcement of the Fourth Amendment, saying, "It's a very, very serious matter and very, very dangerous, and the abuse has been going on for a long, long time. If the people don't wake up it'll get a lot, lot worse."

Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul visited with Kurt Wallace of The American Open Currency Standard. Ron Paul shares his experience in discovering economic freedom and individual liberty.

Kurt and Dr. Paul discuss the spontaneous redefining of what money is for the individual with new forms of currency such as bitcoin, commodity banking, personal trade and barter with precious metals. Dr. Paul talks about legalizing parallel currencies in the US and why economics is the baseline of his message of Liberty. Dr. Paul also previews his upcoming speech in New York May 13th – 14th.

Like many of you, I have come to the conclusion that former Governor Gary Johnson is the best remaining candidate to vote for in the general election. In my state, write-in candidates are only counted if the candidate has declared for that election- and chances are, the Congressman has no intention of doing that. Luckily, Gov. Johnson has gone above and beyond in his effort to reach out and gain support from Ron Paul supporters. Once the RNC was over, the Governor participated in an online town hall meeting specifically for Ron Paul supporters in order to earn their support and go on the record for issues most important to the liberty movement. We know that Gary is with us on most all of the issues of most importance, and as you will hear in the audio, he has clearly made himself familiar with the good Doctor's talking points on various issues. But the two men have their differences, which could be an issue for the Christian conservatives and strict non-interventionists among us. You'll have to talk a listen for yourself!

Texas Congressman Ron Paul rallied with around 400 supporters on Monday morning, including most of the Iowa delegation attending the Republican National Convention in Florida. The event was the Iowa breakfast at the Republican National Convention, but the majority of the crowd supposedly came from other states -- and those out-of-staters were Ron Paul supporters. The Club on Treasure Island, Florida — near the Iowa delegation’s hotel — was the site of the event — and a light rain fell as guests arrived. Dr. Paul urged supporters to fight on in the intellectual battle, despite the many dirty tricks and slow progress. Video compliments of YouTube User: TheTomdif.

After posting the audio of the Ron Paul campaign's formal gathering in Tampa Bay, I though I would post some sounds from the "fringe" element gathering at the Florida State Fairgrounds at the P.A.U.L. (People Awakening and Uniting for Liberty) Festival. PAULfest welcomed many of the liberty movement's most prominent thinkers, who were not invited to the campaign's official rally. The three day gathering welcomed thousands of Paulistas from around the country and featured speeches from various libertarian/Paul supporters. I included speeches from all the names that you'd want to hear (excluding a couple minor speeches that aren't yet posted on YouTube). Links to the original media sources are included in the file description, included audio can be heard in the order listed below:

I thought I'd post a good portion of the audio from the festivities during the RNC. On Sunday afternoon, somewhere between seven and ten thousand Paul supporters packed the University of South Florida's (USF) Sun Dome in Tampa Bay, Florida to celebrate the campaign's successes and to honor Ron Paul for his service. If you are looking for audio of Dr. Paul's speech, it can be heard in its entirety here. This audio file contains additional music and speeches from the major rally, for your listening enjoyment. Much of the video from the rally can be watched at C-Span.org; however, I had to rip some video elsewhere since the satellite feed was cutting out (due to Hurricane Isaac). *If there is no link after the speaker's name, the remarks can be seen at C-Span.

As he is so often wont to do, Rep. Ron Paul clearly sought to use his Chairmanship of the Subcommittee on Monetary Policy as an opportunity to educate his colleagues in the US Congress (and their various staffers) about the fallacies of their economic understanding. As his part in the 2012 presidential election began to wind down, Dr. Paul's Washington staff organized a trio of experts to speak in an 'afternoon tea lecture series' on the Federal Reserve system. As a continuing educational tool, this lecture was filmed and posted for the public on the Congressman's YouTube page. Due to the lack of Ron Paul interviews and appearances in recent months, I thought I'd post these lectures on the podcast here for your enlightenment. I think they're interesting and I'm sure you will too! Links to the original media sources are included in the file description, included audio can be heard in the order listed below:

As he is so often wont to do, Rep. Ron Paul clearly sought to use his Chairmanship of the Subcommittee on Monetary Policy as an opportunity to educate his colleagues in the US Congress (and their various staffers) about the fallacies of their economic understanding. While he was hot on the campaign trail in the fall of 2011, Dr. Paul's Washington staff organized a trio of experts to speak in an 'afternoon tea lecture series' on the basic principles of money. As a continuing educational tool, this lecture was filmed and provided to the public on the Congressman's YouTube page. Due to the lack of Ron Paul interviews and appearances in recent months, I thought I'd post these lectures on the podcast here for your enlightenment.

On Sunday, Newsmax.TV released an interview that was conducted by John Bachman with Dr. Ron Paul. The Congressman made the case for his Audit the Fed legislation (making its way through the House this week) by tying the central bank's inflationary policies with the destruction of the American middle class. The two also discuss the Presidential campaign and the upcoming festivities in Tampa.

On Friday, Ron Paul appeared live on the telephone via Skype connection to address his supporters, who had gathered prior to the weekend's GOP state convention. Dozens of activists from the Republican Liberty Caucus met at the Holiday Inn - Grand Isle to strategize in advance of the convention, which is being called "Dr. Paul's last stand" to earn a chance to be formally nominated at the RNC. The audience heard from the Congressman thanks to a Laptop with Skype, and a mic connected to a PA. I included a portion of the preceding speakers, just for listeners to get a feel for the meeting. Video coverage available by U-Stream user: suriyahfish.

Back in mid-June, Dr. Ron Paul was interviewed for his part in the upcoming documentary film, entitled: The Bubble. Filmmaker Jimmy Morrison came to Dr. Paul's Washington DC office, to talk with him about the housing bubble and the ensuing economic crisis , Federal Reserve policy, and US government intervention in the aftermath. Unfortunately, the questions for the Congressman are not audible in the video and only appear on screen- which makes things difficult for an audio podcast. The interview is broken up into topical segments. For ease of listening, I recorded the questions that appear on screen during the video (surely preferable to the silent breaks in the audio). I can't promise these are all in perfect context, as the storyboards between questions only contain broad topics. But hey, I tried. Video compliments of YouTube User: TheBubbleFilm.

Congressman Ron Paul finally addressed his supporters on Friday through a YouTube video on the ronpaul channel. Dr. Paul talks about the strategy the campaign has enacted in light of Romney's clear victory, and his plans for convention-time in Tampa.
