We are witnessing a fascinating phenomenon that may signal that the neoconservative movement is nearing its “sell-by” date. As Glenn Greenwald documents in a recent article, there is a mass migration of neoconservative leaders back to the Democratic Party they left in the early 1970s. Why did they leave in the first place? The McGovernite peaceniks were destroying their party and they saw much potential in a Republican Party that had swung back and forth from the non-interventionism of the Taft wing to the big government, national-security-state Republicanism of the Buckleyites and others.

What does all of this mean for us? Opportunity.

The interest in Ron Paul’s foreign policy of non-intervention in the affairs of others, a defense of this nation, and an end to the trillion dollar military empire overseas is growing daily. The readership at the Ron Paul Institute website is up and the viewership of our Ron Paul Liberty Report continues to rapidly increase.

Did you know the United States spends twelve times more per person on its military than China? And next year’s military budget is getting a huge bump-up from Congress. Something is clearly wrong.

It’s great to sit in front of our computers reading important articles and watching informative videos, but we also need to connect with other like-minded people. We need to hear from those who are out there in the front lines. Their insights are so valuable. A movement is built on human contact and connections.

And we also need to show the world that there is a great interest in a foreign policy of minding our own business. Nothing gets that message across like a packed conference in Washington, DC!

On September 9th at the Washington Dulles Airport Marriott we will again make history, as the Ron Paul Institute holds its second major foreign policy conference. Last year’s sold out event was also seen by millions on CSPAN and enjoyed by so many who came out to join us.

Last year’s attendees urged us through the year to do it again and we have listened to them!

What’s on the agenda this year? Well there is much we are still working on but I can let you know that Ron Paul and Lew Rockwell will be on the stage in September. It is always so amazing to have them both in a room and I can’t wait to see them together again.

Dr. Paul will have much to say on his new book — which takes a penetrating look at his Liberty Movement ten years on — and much to say about where we need to focus for the future. Likewise we are so grateful to Lew Rockwell for again joining us and providing us with his words of wisdom.

I am super excited about a whistleblowers’ roundtable that we are organizing for the event. The truth will set us free and it is whistleblowers who risk their lives and careers to bring us the truth! You are going to be surprised at who will join us for this.

This year we want to focus particularly on two things: making connections and taking action. The reason we get together is of course to hear the brilliant insights of our speakers. But we also need to build our own networks and coordinate ways to take action to promote our Peace and Prosperity agenda.

I really want to encourage you to get your tickets to this exciting conference early, as the venue has a limited capacity, we have reserved the entire ballroom, and we expect to sell out far in advance of the conference date! We would really hate to see you miss the event of the year for those of us who believe in peace and prosperity.

Did you already buy your tickets? Get an amazing rate at the hotel especially for conference-goers!

So what are you waiting for? Get your tickets and join hundreds of other friends of peace and liberty in Washington, DC, this September!
