Seizing on the public’s demand for a louder voice in public affairs, former presidential candidate Ron Paul is expanding his media footprint with a call for an “epidemic of truth-telling” by whistleblowers like Edward Snowden and Vietnam War-era tipster Daniel Ellsberg.
Already the face of the web-based Ron Paul Channel, the libertarian Republican has just added an interactive online site called “Voices of Liberty” that will provide more news, blogs and a chance for supporters to start petitions to push policy in Washington.
“He’s so excited about it. He’s jazzed,” said Voices of Liberty managing editor Tiffany Rider. “I don’t think ‘retirement’ is in his vocabulary,” she told Secrets.
In a video explaining his project, Paul said that the new “Voices” site is “one step forward where we are going to reach a lot more people.”
Part of his goal, he added, is to encourage more insiders like former national security official Snowden or Ellsberg, who made public the infamous Vietnam War Pentagon Papers, to come forward and reveal the government’s secrets that clash with liberty.
