I’m sure by now regular readers are well aware that Texas Congressman Ron Paul is serving out his 12th -- and final -- term in the House of Representatives and will soon retire from public life. Somewhat unexpectedly, however, during his humble and moving final speech on the House floor a few days ago, I was surprised to hear him speak, among other things, about his “failure” to rein in the size and scope of government during his long and distinguished political career.

In response to:
Hear Hear!. Congressman Paul, like Churchill, was a voice in the wilderness until times got desperate. I hear and read all the time conservatives who say, "I like a lot about Ron Paul - except his foreign policy." Well, US Foreign Policy is it's own evidence that Paul was and is right about it being counter productive to the US's best interests. Maybe next time, instead of running another Lefty to beat a Lefty, the Repubs would return to their roots and attract young people, Mid-Westerners, and maybe even folks from the Left Coast. Liberty attracts lots of people.
