About “Meet Ron Paul”, a biography by Mat Blankenship
In his newly published book, Meet Ron Paul, author Mat Blankenship introduces young readers to the man who predicted the September 11 terrorist attacks and the recent global financial crisis. Ronald Ernest “Ron” Paul is a physician, author, and former politician best known for his libertarian views and criticisms on controversial policies. Blankenship’s book will help readers understand why Paul staunchly sought the presidency of the United States on three occasions.
This short biographical sketch retraces Paul’s early years up to his life as a physician and a politician. It reveals his efforts to address concerns relating to the monetary policy of America and the use of the military. It also recounts the humble beginnings of the Tea Party Movement as well as the War on Terror. It retells his prediction of the recent market crash and the September 11 attacks. It also sheds light on how his ideas of liberty, peace, and good money have become very popular as it fueled a new kind of “rEVOLution.”
Paul is indeed a man for all seasons. This little book about a great man successfully outlines his remarkable contributions to American society that people know little about. Paul was a flight surgeon in the United States Air Force and was a doctor who delivered over 4,000 babies. He made history serving in Congress at the same time as his son Rand, now a sitting U.S. Senator. He also ran for President of the United States of America three times.
Through this celebration of Paul’s life and works, readers will gain some basic knowledge and understanding on some highly technical concepts and terms in politics and economics. This mini crash course delves into topics such as Austrian Economics, The Federal Reserve Bank, Inflation, The Gold Standard, Blowback, The beginning of the modern “Tea-Party”, The Constitution, and most importantly, Liberty.
Short but nonetheless substantial, Meet Ron Paul is a great blend of historical facts, inspiring anecdotes, introduction to politics and economics, illustrations, and a few timeless quotes. Blankenship has appropriately honored Paul with this handy companion and guide for young readers to understand Paul’s life and times, his achievements, and the events and philosophies that shaped his and the rest of America’s thinking.
