Join Dr. Ron Paul and Tom Woods, plus very special guest Glenn Greenwald in Texas for an event you won't want to miss!

Ron Paul's two campaigns for president (2008 and 2012) were watershed moments for liberty-minded people around the world. The "Ron Paul Revolution"—centered around  his undiluted message of peace, property, and markets—changed the way millions thought about the American empire and the American financial system. Dr. Paul's focus on central banking and foreign policy caught politicians and pundits off guard,  forcing them to scramble for explanations of our Middle East policy and Soviet-style central planning at the Fed. Politics in America has not been the same since the "Giuliani moment" and "End the Fed."  Like the Tea Party and Bernie Bros. movements which followed, the Ron Paul Revolution was both a political and cultural phenomenon. It also helped launch the career of Senator Rand Paul.

Today, the lasting effects of the Ron Paul Revolution are evident but mixed. The country seems less free and less secure than ever, divided along vicious partisan lines. So what can we learn from the Revolution to help us going forward, and what role do Paul's prescriptions play in a landscape of progressives and populists? Where do we go from here, when peace and sanity seem impossible? This is an event you don't want to miss, as we'll consider the past but with an eye toward a more hopeful future!

Tom Woods will provide his perspective on the Ron Paul Revolution 10 years later, and Daniel McAdams will present the case for recognizing a "Ron Paul Doctrine." Our very special guest, journalist Glenn Greenwald, will speak remotely on the critical importance of independent media.

The event takes place between 8:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 4, 2021, near Ron's hometown of Lake Jackson. We meet at the beautiful Hidden Oaks venue, 101 Hidden Oaks Lane, Angleton, Texas. Due to limited venue space, registration is required for attendance.
