Reading Ron Paul

Some commenters are unhappy that I wrote this post yesterday before reading Ron Paul’s latest book. But the point of the post was that immigration restrictionists were going after Paul based on Liberty Defined, not so much to offer my own viewpoint. Plus, aside from his book Paul has a longstanding record on immigration that is, from a restrictionist perspective, solid on amnesty, border security, and birthright citizenship, weak on interior enforcement, and muddled on legal immigration.

That said, I did argue that Paul’s immigration rhetoric was changing based on other people’s quotes. So I will read Liberty Defined and offer my own viewpoint of Paul’s rhetoric and substance on the issue. We’ll see how the summaries stack up.

UPDATE: Brian Doherty — who has reviewed Liberty Defined — has more over at Reason. He does not detect any shift in Paul’s immigration rhetoric and notes that Hoppe’s libertarian restrictionism is cited in the book.
