Ron Paul Classic: Interviewing Ivan Eland on Reclaiming Rushmore
One of the highlights of LPAC 2014 is sure to be Ivan Eland, senior fellow and director of the Center on Peace & Liberty at the Independent Institute. Ivan’s work focuses on the dangers of America’s hyper-interventionist foreign policy, and the threat to liberty posed by the “imperial presidency.”
Ivan’s book, “Recarving Rushmore: Ranking the Presidents on Peace, Prosperity, and Liberty” reverses the typical historian rankings of great Presidents. Instead of ranking as “great” those Presidents who were most successful in getting the US into wars and/or expanding the federal government, Ivan ranks as most successful those Presidents who avoided overseas conflicts, respected the constitutional limitations of their office, and did not expand the federal government’s power over our lives.
Campaign for Liberty for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul interviewed Ivan on his book for C-SPAN’s Book TV in 2009. You can watch the interview here.
Don’t miss your chance to hear from Dr. Paul, Ivan, and other great speakers at LPAC 2014!
