Ron Paul Writing New Book on Education 2

Former presidential candidate Ron Paul, a longtime foe of the Federal Reserve and champion of a smaller foreign policy footprint, is turning to education in a new book slated for release this fall.

In “New School Manifesto,” scheduled for a Sept. 17 release from Grand Central Publishing, the former GOP congressman from Texas will promote home schooling and “free market principles applied to education,” according to an official book description.

“He makes the case for individual freedoms as they pertain to educating our children, and nimbly dissects the most pressing issues that need to be addressed from the libertarian point of view,” the description continues.

This will be Paul’s fourth book with Grand Central Publishing, following “Liberty Defined,” “End the Fed” and “The Revolution: A Manifesto,” his editor, Ben Greenberg, told POLITICO. Greenberg said the book has been in the works for close to a year, and that a deal for its publication was hammered out in January.

In this book, Greenberg said, Paul will compare the postal service to the education system, arguing that in both realms, competition promotes better services.

“He’s basically saying the postal service didn’t have many competitors until FedEx, UPS and email, obviously, and now it’s changing the way everything gets done,” Greenberg said. “He’s arguing for that in education as well.”

Paul will address a variety of education policy proposals, he said.

“He’s taking the position that a parent should have the ability to choose what is best,” Greenberg said, a philosophy that would include home schooling.

Greenberg, who has edited all of Paul’s books done through Grand Central Publishing, said the Texan is “really easy to work with” and doesn’t require heavy editing.

“We usually do two to three edits for the main script, but not much,” Greenberg said. “His ideas are pretty fully formed. It’s just a matter of honing in and making sure everything is in the right order and just figuring out how to best say the message without becoming too repetitive or anything like that.”

Also on deck for the libertarian former lawmaker: talk radio. Courtside Entertainment Group announced this month that in March, Paul will offer “twice daily one-minute radio commentaries” with his talks also available as a weekly podcast.

“Even if you don’t agree with what he says, he always makes you think about things a little bit differently,” Greenberg added.

    For everyone out there that might read this. Try looking into alternative history as it pertains to U.S./World history and prepare yourself for a wild, rude awakening. For someone reading from this site you are most likely one of those that have a different view of 9/11 other then the official government report. If so then you will be in for one wild ride and that rude awakening and may uncover false flag events spanning over the past 120 years. What does any of what I said to do with Ron Paul’s book? If he does not speak those truths uncovered and if he does not move away from the last 57 years of school history then his book should be thrown away as should all of our current history books. Think about it this way. The victor and bully writes the history books to favor themselves and they drown that other viewpoint of history for the reason to make the masses follow them into further aggression. U.S. aggression is something anyone watching world events can see for themselves and should cause a person to get that second view at least for their own sake if not for what your children should know before they enter into the world on their own.

    I hope Dr Paul writes about our Nation’s “College Scam”, selling dreams all based on making naive students their debt slaves for life. Its the same strategy elite bankers, and our government uses on poor nations, by giving them more money than they can afford, or repay, that the Fed prints out of think air, thus they own you for life, and you are forever indebted to them. “There are only 3 things in life that the statute of limitations does not apply to.. Murder, Treason and Student Loans.”
