Ron Paul

Regardless of how you feel about his politics, you've got to admit that Ron Paul is a refreshing presence in American politics. He is among the most well-read, principled, and consistent politicians around.

The kind of reverence and enthusiasm he evokes on college campuses (traditional bastions of the Left) is truly amazing to watch. I first got interested in him during his campaign for the 2008 presidential nomination, and wound up reading his book "End the Fed" (which, as he recounts in the book, was apparently a chant that originated on the campus of my alma mater).

1. For Liberty: an "abridged" hour long video documentary, mostly about his 2008 campaign.

2. Leithner Letter (pdf): Is Ron Paul a better investor than Warren Buffett? An interesting analysis of his political and economic views and impressive investment returns.

3. Jon Stewart on the Daily Show: Why do they ignore him? Old episode (after the Iowa Straw poll).
