Welcome To The Ron Paul Institute... No, Really


We won't have to argue about Ron Paul's anti-Choice fanaticism or his weird religious beliefs or his sympathy for militant fringe right-wing groups. His new eponymous institute is something any red-blooded American can get behind. Here's the media advisory he sent out last week (and posted on his Facebook page):
Ron Paul to Launch New Policy Institute

The neo-conservative era is dead.

Former Congressman Ron Paul will hold a press conference this Wednesday to launch his next big project: the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. After decades in and out of the US House of Representatives leading the call for a non-interventionist foreign policy and the protection of civil liberties, Dr. Paul is launching a revolutionary new vehicle to expand his efforts. The Institute will serve as the focal point of a new coalition that crosses political, ideological, and party lines.

The Ron Paul Institute will focus on the two issues most important to Dr. Paul, education and coming generations. It will fill the growing demand for information on foreign affairs from a non-interventionist perspective through a lively and diverse website, and will provide unique educational opportunities to university students and others.

The neo-conservative era is dead. The ill-advised policies pushed by the neo-cons have everywhere led to chaos and destruction, and to a hatred of the United States and its people. Multi-trillion dollar wars have not made the world a safer place; they have only bankrupted our economic future. The Ron Paul Institute will provide the tools and the education to chart a new course with the understanding that only through a peaceful foreign policy can we hope for a prosperous tomorrow.

Founder and Chairman, and CEO Dr. Paul has invited the Institute’s board of advisors to speak at the conference, including Rep. Walter Jones, Jr. (NC), Rep. John Duncan, Jr. (TN), former Rep. Dennis Kucinich (OH), Judge Andrew Napolitano, Ambassador Faith Whittlesey, and Llewellyn Rockwell, Jr.

What: Press Conference to Inaugurate the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity

When: Wednesday, April 17th, 3:00 PM

Where: Capitol Hill Club, 300 1st St SE Washington, DC. (California Room)

Join Dr. Paul and his friends Wednesday to hear more about the Ron Paul Institute!
I suspect they won't be sharing a space-- or anything else-- with AIPAC. It should be interesting to watch the coalition-building here, libertarian Republicans and peace-oriented Democrats. I can't wait to hear how they plan to deal with Buck McKeon's initiative to fill the American skies with drones. I suspect the work Ron Paul takes on with this new institute isn't likely to be popular with either party Establishment, both of which firmly embrace the Military Industrial Complex that President Eisenhower so presciently warned us about in 1961.

The fun will really begin when his Home School Curriculum alumni, now ensconced in power, decide that the old notion of not interfering with other countries is in direct opposition to what most of those who learned at the knee of North and other Reconstructionists see as the next golden opportunity for their god to shine his love and mercy down upon his chosen country, and thus the Christians vs Muslims Battle Royale will commence, forthwith.

He won't have as much money to spend on his nuttery as he thought he would:
