This is delusional. Ron Paul had little or no lasting impact on US politics or political thought. There was no Ron Paul revolution. Trump has made a far greater impact on American governance and policy.

Dear R:

Ron has converted more people to libertarianism than anyone else, with the possible exception of Ayn Rand.

I’ll grant you Donald Trump has had, and will have had, a greater impact on US politics, political thought, than Ron Paul. So what. The same can be said of Obama, FDR, Keynes, Hitler and many others.

Do, please, read this book of mine on Ron. It is my love letter to him:
