Ron Paul talks about his storied political career and the prospects for liberty under the Trump presidency. Paul is skeptical of Trump’s trade strategies, but holds out hope that his good instincts on certain foreign policy issues will translate into an actual reduction of the American empire. Paul says that although socialism has become fashionable in some parts of the country, many Americans are surprisingly receptive to the libertarian message that what we really need is more liberty, less war, and sound money.
