The love of liberty is not exclusive to the United States.
Evidence of the universality of the “yearning to be free” is found in the enthusiastic reception given to former congressman Ron Paul at an appearance in Santiago, Chile.
The libertarian icon was in Chile’s capital city as part of the annual “Sovereign Man” conference.
According to the event’s organizer Simon Black (an alias), the philosophy informing the meeting is the belief that “in order to achieve true freedom, you have to be able to make money, control your time, and eliminate the mindset that you are subject to a corrupt government that is bent on degrading your personal liberty.”
Sounds like something right up Ron Paul’s alley.
Economic Policy Journal reported that Paul answered the roar of the crowd, declaring, “It sounds like the revolution has gone international!”
Paul’s speech focused on issues of financial freedom.
Based on tweets posted by Jim Rickards, Paul’s message was well-received and consistent with his pro-liberty position.
As reported by Economic Policy Journal’s summary of Rickards' tweets, Paul said, “The same thing will happen to the Federal Reserve as happened to the Soviet Union.” “The handwriting's on the wall; the system is failing.”
Ron Paul’s campaign to force the Fed to submit to the will of the people and their elected representatives is renowned.

The bill passed as an amendment both in the House Financial Services Committee and in the House itself.
