Peace and Prosperity

Ron Paul’s Swords into Plowshares Soundtrack


Each chapter of Ron Paul’s latest book Swords into Plowshares: A Life in Wartime and a Future of Peace and Prosperity is preceded by song lyrics that help communicate the antiwar ideas Paul expresses in the book. That makes 21 songs for 21 chapters. Metallica, Willie Nelson, Pink Floyd, Elvis Presley, the Rolling Stones, and Pete Seeger are among the performers featured in the song collection.

Now there is an easy way to listen to all these songs and learn a fact or two about each as well. Tim Shoemaker over at the Campaign for Liberty has collected together, in two articles, YouTube links to and short introductions of these 21 songs.

Find Shoemaker’s articles here and here.

To complete the Swords into Plowshares soundtrack, check out also three songs Paul discusses within the books’ chapters: John McCutcheon’s “Christmas in the Trenches,” Brave Saint Saturn’s “Blessed are the Land Mines,” and Buffy Sainte-Marie’s “Universal Soldier.”
