Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom by Ron Paul


5 of 5 stars *****

Ron Paul writes a very compelling book for the free market, freedom, and liberty. His points are well substantiated with credible research and common sense logic. This author has the inside scoop on the workings of government which make him privy to the truth behind the intentions that crank the wheels of policies and regulations. His point is well taken that the more regulation, the larger the size of government, the less liberty there is. This structure favors only those in power who deceive the voters into thinking what they do for their constituents is for their  good; when actually, their efforts only lead to increases in poverty and suppressing freedom while enriching those in power. 

This book covers the controversial subjects of today: Abortion, Economics, Bipartisanship, Big Business, Capital Punishment, the CIA and Homeland Security, Civil Disobedience, Democracy, Discrimination, Education, Foreign Policy, Global Warming, Gun Control, Insurance, Lobbying, Medical Care, Morality, Political Correctness, Racism, Religion, Slavery, States Rights, Taxes, Terrorism, Unions, and Zionism. I left a few chapters out but they are related to these subjects which are comprehensive. The author is sensible enough to realize that the changes needed to recapture the liberties that made America great are not easy to restore. This author has a higher opinion of Ron Paul since reading Liberty Defined: 50 essential issues that affect our freedom.
