But now after keeping relatively quiet (fashioning his own home school curriculum scheduled for release next fall), he’s gearing up for another major announcement: the unveiling of his nonpartisan think tank.
Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) is launching a foreign policy institute focused on undercutting U.S. interventionism.
"The neo-conservative era is dead," proclaims the media advisory on his Facebook page announcing the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity.
"The ill-advised policies pushed by the neo-cons have everywhere led to chaos and destruction, and to a hatred of the United States and its people. Multi-trillion dollar wars have not made the world a safer place; they have only bankrupted our economic future. The Ron Paul Institute will provide the tools and the education to chart a new course with the understanding that only through a peaceful foreign policy can we hope for a prosperous tomorrow."
The group promises to focus on coalition-building across party lines and creating opportunities for students to engage on the topic.
The iconoclastic former congressman and presidential candidate has long been a thorn in the side of the GOP on foreign policy issues, arguing for a "golden rule" foreign policy that takes a hands-off approach to global politics. That approach sharply contrasts with Republican orthodoxy from the last 30 years, though it's growing in popularity — his son, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), shares many of his foreign policy views and is viewed as a much more serious presidential contender than Paul ever was.
The ceremony inaugurating the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity will occur on Wednesday afternoon in Washington, D.C.....snip~
Ron Paul to Launch Foreign Policy Institute - Daniel Doherty
Is this good or bad for Republicans? Will Paul now go after Neo-Cons full tilt.....knowing his son shares many of his views over Foreign Policy, and is a Strong Contender to run for the Presidency. How do you think this will have impact? Or even No Impact. One thing I did notice Paul is breaking ground in Washington DC this Wed. As to the time of the piece by TownHall and Bing News.....there was nothing showing with the MSMedia.
