The 17 Books Scrubbed From Rand Paul's Web Site

As Rand Paul continues to scramble to present views more amenable to the establishment elite, his moves get more and more obvious, outrageous and daring. He has now scrubbed from his Senate web page  17 books that once comprised a reading list that was identified as a list of books for "anyone interested in freedom and the role of government in a free society." In my earlier report on the scrubbing (SEE Rand Paul Scrubs His Father's Book From His Web Site), I wrote on the foreign policy books scrubbed by Rand, but it goes well beyond that and includes classics by Mises, Hayek and Hazlitt, and several books by his farther, including End the Fed.

As a public service, here are the 17 books that Rand scrubbed from his web site:

The Road to Serfdom by Friedrich Hayek

The Conscience of a Conservative by Barry Goldwater

Human Action by Ludwig von Mises

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

The Revolution: A Manifesto by Ron Paul

End the Fed by Ron Paul

A Foreign Policy of Freedom by Ron Paul

Meltdown by Tom Woods

The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Great Depression by Robert Murphy

Broke by Glenn Beck

Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt

The New American Militarism: How Americans are seduced by war by Andrew Bacevich

Blowback by Chalmer Johnson

Imperial Hubris by Michael Scheuer

Where the Right Went Wrong by Patrick Buchanan

Silent Night:The Story of the World War I Christmas Truce  by Sidney Weintraub
