Bring the troops home. Isolationism is the only true way. America should not be involved in Russian political conflict. We already have North Korea testing rockets within range of United States airbases, why do we need more conflict to put our hands in?! Bring everybody home, let the rest of the world kill themselves, then we will really be most powerful.

Dr. Paul touched on a number of subjects including Austrian Economics (of course), Limited Government, Less Well-Fare, etc. He told us how there is no Federal Government authority in the constitution to mess with our healthcare i.e. Obamacare. Which the former congressman considers un-constitutional and it is. "Obamacare is not helpful, it will take away your rights..."
We've exposed the Feds for losing our money and for spying on us and those are big victories for the people of America. And Dr. Paul said that if the government does not reform and begin to do things differently that the people should simply opt out. It is written in the Constitution that we can change our government and maybe we should.
There are millions unemployed, the government is lying about the economy and putting money into useless government programs, which loses our money, our hard earned tax money mostly. The FED controls the interest rates and the credit rates and things go on, business as usual and nobody does anything about it. There are black budgets funding who knows what.
There's needs to be a shift in the minds of the American people politically speaking. "Government has not done a very good job running or regulating anything," said Dr. Paul and he is right. He says the country is not ready for a new constitutional convention and making changes to the constitution, plus the right people are not in power to do so. It's hard to control our Federal Government, because they have us under control, as a people.
There are people joining militias, becoming survivalists, protesters worried about militarized police and the national guard. Ron Paul, first off, pointed out that militarizing law enforcement is against the law, which is a very valid point. We need people who understand the second amendment and it's supporters to introduce gun legislation that makes true sense.
Lastly, and a point I'm particularly attached to, being that I'm only 26, was that we need to inspire young people. We need to change the way young people think about politics, especially changing them thinking about the system as only a two-party system. Dr. Orly Taitz, a leading figure in the "birther" movement, said to me that young people just don't realize the affect they could have on the system, and I agree. We will rule the world someday, after all.
Over all, a great event, I got to meet Ron Paul, which was a thrill and I was able to slip the ex-congressman a copy of my newly published book.
