Ron Paul Farewell Speech: Gone, But Not Forgotten

by at . Comments

U.S. Rep. Ron Paul bid farewell to the U.S. House Wednesday. Watch the Texas Congressman's final speech on the floor of the U.S. house here:

Not surprisingly to those familiar with Dr. Paul's career and philosophy, he spoke for a LONG time (48 minutes) and touched upon his usual themes:

Liberty, freedom, peace, and tolerance.

Yes, there are the obligatory gold standard and raw milk references. This is Ron Paul, people. But wherever you are on the political spectrum, this is worth listening to.

Paul’s influence on the Republican Party in recent years has been substantial, and his son, Sen. Rand Paul, will likely carry the torch going forward.

The elder Paul's unabashed calls for the rejection of both social and economic interventionists have galvanized many Americans in the past few years.

Will the movement continue after the 77-year-old's retirement? That remains to be seen, but this is one political figure who has left an indelible mark.
