As Ron Paul Leaves Congress, “Outside of Washington, I Am Very Optimistic”

Ron Paul's rEVOLution: The Man and the Movement He InspiredThe Hearst newspapers profile Ron Paul as his long political career ends. They lard it with a fair amount of completely point-missing stuff about “numbers of bills he passed” as a legislator and, in this author’s estimation, ahem, grossly understate the importance of the mind-changing he’s done as the most effective libertarian proselytizer of the past couple of decades (though it does mention it). I stand by my prediction that the only really important political story for America’s future of the past 5 years, when looked at from the perspective of, say, two decades from now, will prove to be Ron Paul’s rEVOLution.


The story refers to his political campaigns as “low cost” without mentioning that his official (non-SuperPAC) 2012 haul was only slightly less than that of two of his more prominent competitors, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, combined.
