ROCKWELL: Good morning. This is the Lew Rockwell Show. And what an honor it is to have as our guest, Dr. Ron Paul. What do we say about Dr. Paul? Because I could take up the entire podcast just describing — (laughing) — his qualifications and his achievements and not even begin to go over them. I’ll just simply say he’s the great leader for liberty and for free markets, Austrian economics, who has influenced millions of people all over the world, young people especially.
So, Ron, it’s great to have you with us. And I thought we’d get started by talking about your wonderful last column where you discussed the Neo-Cons, the people who seem to want perpetual war, the role of Bill Kristol and similar intellectuals in promoting the warfare state and the empire.
