Charles Goyette reviews A Return to Common Sense: Reawakening Liberty in the Inhabitants of America

The Common Sense of Tom Mullen

by Charles Goyette | May 15th 2012

Like other readers of American Breaking Point, The Washington Times, and DailyPaul.com, I look forward to Tom Mullen’s posts and columns.

His observations about the media and its prejudicial treatment of the Ron Paul campaign have been deadly accurate. Here’s a recent example from his column in The Washington Times:

Early in this election cycle, the media repeated ad nauseum that Ron Paul could not win the nomination. That affected his performance in popular votes. They never suggested this about any of the other nine candidates, eight of which are now out. Then, they repeated ad nauseum that Ron Paul had not won any states, even though he had. Now, they attempt to cast aspersions on those wins with spurious arguments about their legitimacy.

…What about Ron Paul are they so afraid of?

Not for a moment is Mullen distracted by the daily posturing of the governing classes and its candidates, trained to speak in focus group generalities, tested to make the American boobouisie’s palms sweat and pupils dilate.  When Romney touts national investment in basic research and advanced technology,” Mullen immediately detects the odor of crony capitalism. A Solyndra by any other name…

Mullen even provokes a laugh along the way:

I don’t read minds, so I can’t speculate as to what President Obama thinks…. He may be wearing Karl Marx Underoos when he reads from his teleprompter. I don’t know (and don’t want to know). We can only judge him on what he’s done.

The crisp analysis that Mullen brings to his commentary springs from the rich individualist tradition of John Locke, Thomas Jefferson, and Thomas Paine.  This philosophy of natural rights has also found modern champions from Murray Rothbard to Judge Andrew Napolitano. Those seeking to take a stand for liberty now, when they are especially needed, will find that Mullen has written a book that will ground them in this philosophy of natural rights, a philosophy indispensable to the American revolution and its successes.

Peter Schiff Recommends A Return to Common Sense!

Hello everyone,

This past Friday, my new book A Return to Common Sense: Reawakening Liberty in the Inhabitants of America received a wonderful endorsement. Most of you are undoubtedly familiar with Peter Schiff, president of Euro Pacific Capital, author of Crash Proof: How to Profit from the Coming Economic Collapse, and frequent guest panelist on CNBC, Fox News, Bloomberg, and other financial broadcasts. Long ridiculed for his bearish outlook on the American economy, Mr. Schiff is now a superstar in the financial world for having accurately predicted the economic and financial meltdown we are experiencing right now.

Mr. Schiff was kind enough to read my book and gave it a wonderful review. He will also list it on the “Recommended Reading List” on his website at http://www.europac.net/. For great insights into the economy and why everything our government is doing is making it worse, check out the commentaries on his site.

Here is the review:

A well written primer on economics, liberty, and government that even avid Austrians will enjoy. If you have been blinded by government and Wall Street propaganda, “A Return to Common Sense” will help open your eyes. I not only recommend that you add this book to your freedom library, but that you buy a few copies for your friends.

Peter Schiff, Pres. of Euro Pacific Capital, Inc and author of “Crash Proof – How to Profit from the coming Economic Collapse.”

The book also hit the online stores for Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, Books A Million, and many other retailers this past week. You can read the first two chapters for free here: A Return to Common Sense: Reawakening Liberty in the Inhabitants of America.
