For Liberty: How the Ron Paul Revolution Watered the Withered Tree of Liberty follows this most successful of grassroots campaigns in United States history, and examines what it is that motivates ordinary American citizens to activism.
As the presidential primary season kicks off in early 2007, the Republican Party has become a stench to the American people. The Bush Administration has overseen the initiation of two wars, an unprecedented debt expansion, bailouts, a frightening disregard for Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and a “war on terror” that more closely resembled a war on privacy and civil liberties. President Bush prepared to step down, leaving “Republican” a dirty word on the lips of many. For Liberty: How the Ron Paul Revolution Watered the Withered Tree of Liberty follows the most successful grassroots presidential campaign in United States history, analyzing this unprecedented political upheaval from the perspective of those who were there making it happen.
