This is Ron Paul’s "Farewell to Congress" and clarion call for education in Austrian economics and liberty, delivered in the House of Representatives on November 14th 2012. Fittingly, Lew Rockwell writes the courageous introduction:Ron is the anti-politician. He tells unfashionable truths, educates rather than flatters the public, and stands up for principle even when the whole world is arrayed against him.It’s Ron’s truth-telling and his urge to educate the public that should inspire us as we carry on into the future.You can view all of our Ron Paul books here.

Historical accounts of California tell of flocks of birds so dense in the sky that they cast a shadow on the ground, and of thunderous rivers of geese, ducks, and swans moving down the state to the lagoons of Mexico and beyond.

In text and photographs, Farewell, Promised Land documents the stark contrast between the California landscape of this past and what it has become, as it traces the evolution of the Cal

This anthology is one volume from C.J.S. Hayward's collected works. It includes an offbeat chain letter parody, a no less whimsical work (although more serious) in which a Church Father comments on a postmodern trend, a solemn farewell to a holiday, a look at all spirituality boiling down to two basic rules, a relatively long short story that looks at what, exactly, can be good about a life filled with pain, a paean of praise about the glory of the Creator reflected in the Creation, a dialogue exploring whether, exactly, time is what a watch measures, and then two closing, connected stories.

Excerpt: ... CHAPTER XIIL PARADISE LOST PARADISE REGAINED SAMSON AGONISTS S. "Many men of forty," it has been said, "are dead poets;" and it might seem that Milton, Latin secretary, and party pamphleteer, had died to poetry about the fatal age. In 1645, when he made a gathering of his early pieces for the volume published by Humphry Moseley, he wanted three years of forty. That volume contained, b
