Storyline

As the 2007-08 presidential campaign cycle offered up the usual slate of Washington insiders, Ron Paul, an obscure Congressman from Texas brought an alternative voice that challenged the political establishment. Advocating a philosophy of sound money, a non-interventionist foreign policy, strict Constitutionalism, and individual liberty, Dr. Paul inspired a unique grassroots movement unmatched in American history - the repercussions of which continue to reverberate today and into the future of the American psyche. For Liberty: How the Ron Paul Revolution Watered the Withered Tree of Liberty follows this historic campaign from the perspective of grassroots activists, and showcases the unique, often bizarre, yet groundbreaking projects they undertook as they brushed aside traditional campaign methodology. Written by Chris Rye

uplifting touch to such a painful end
6 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was incredibly well made. It looks at the 2008 Ron Paul presidential run from the viewpoint of a die hard supporter. Sure RP ended up losing, and the media drug him through the dirt...but a group saw through the trash and came to understand Liberty in its purest form of Constitutional limited government. Chris Rye does a great job showing the spark that kindled a fire for freedom in the hearts of millions.

Ron's story is an inspiring one; he alone stood by his word and ideals during the campaign (and entire political career: never voting to raise taxes, never voting for war, never voting for more regulation, never voting against the Constitution). He talked sense and truth during the debates and was HECKLED by other candidates for speaking out against the bloodbath known as the Iraq War. Ron Paul has the fire and passion of a true American. Big Government, Big Business, WATCH YOUR BACKS!
