by | Jun 22, 2016

In the last three minutes of his 45-minute Tuesday interview on the C-SPAN Washington Journal call-in show, Ron Paul Institute Chairman Ron Paul made a brief and resolute statement regarding individual rights. The statement underlies much of Paul’s discussion during the program of matters ranging from the United States governments’ foreign interventions to the Federal Reserve to search and seizure abuses.
