Lew Rockwell, founder and Chairman of the Ludwig von Mises Institute, discusses his classic speech “Down With the Presidency;” how state-worshiping Americans have allowed the office of the president to become an elected dictatorship; the spectacle of presidential travel, where entire cities are shut down during a visit from our “god-king” imperial president and his enormous entourage; how the Ron Paul Revolution is winning the hearts and minds of young people the world over; prospects for liberty beyond the 2012 Republican National Convention; and how Paul is removing the “60s leftist” stigma from antiwar activism.

  8. I find personal myself aghast when I trace Max Blumenthal and he calls Lew Rockwell, a crank, in english edition of an arabic online journal. Who else eloquently questions policy like Lew? His website has some of the most original thinking out there. No where else do I read articles about why college may not make economic sense to many. We should all question anyone on antiwar.com or any other news sources, that is fine. For me, M. Blumenthal is stuck in some partisan mindset for where Democrats are saviors and has not transcended the false two party divide. I just don't get his beef with Mr. Rockwell.

  9. Ron Paul is going to shut it all down after the Rep. Convention…and he will never be again—thank god. What a sap

  10. Those well-written articles at lew’s place is full of contradiction. They seem right at first glance but if you REALY REALY think them through you may see the holes. And maybe even ask him and watch how he ducks on any fundamental question.
