Friday, May 31, 2013 and signed copies of his book, Government Bullies: How Everyday Americans are Being Harassed, Abused, and Imprisoned by the
Feds (Publish Date: September 2012).
In Government Bullies, Senator Paul takes an in-depth look at the legislation
that is trampling the rights of ordinary citizens, strangling their ability
to conduct private, everyday activities without egregious government
interference. Most importantly, he charts a direction out of this mess, and
toward renewed freedom for all Americans. Dr. Rand Paul is the junior United
States Senator for Kentucky. Rand has been a vocal advocate for term limits, a
balanced-budget amendment, a Read the Bills Act, and an audit of the Federal
Reserve, and is the son of former Republican Congressman and presidential
candidate Ron Paul of Texas.

The Reagan Forum on May 21, 2013 with former United States Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on his new book, Rumsfeld’s Rules: Leadership Lessons in Business, Politics, War and Life (publish date: May 14, 2013).
Throughout his long and distinguished career—as a naval aviator, a U.S. Congressman, a top aide to four American presidents, a high-level diplomat, a CEO of two Fortune 500 companies, and the only twice-serving Secretary of Defense in American history—Donald Rumsfeld has collected hundreds of pithy, compelling, and often humorous observations about leadership, business, and life. When President Gerald Ford ordered these aphorisms distributed to his White House staff in 1974, the collection became known as "Rumsfeld's Rules."
First gathered as three-by-five cards in a shoebox and then typed up and circulated informally over the years, these eminently nonpartisan rules have amused and enlightened presidents, business executives, chiefs of staff, foreign officials, diplomats, and members of Congress. They earned praise from the Wall Street Journal as "Required reading," and from the New York Times which said: "Rumsfeld's Rules can be profitably read in any organization…The best reading, though, are his sprightly tips on inoculating oneself against that dread White House disease, the inflated ego."
Meanwhile, the collection continued to grow as Rumsfeld added new rules derived from things he read, heard, or observed in more than eight decades of a remarkable life. Now these legendary rules are made available for the first time to corporate executive. Rumsfeld has selected his most useful and important rules for effective leadership, enhanced with fresh insights and entertaining anecdotes, and discusses them in the blunt and witty style that made his Pentagon press conferences "must-see TV."
Distilled from a career of unusual breadth and accomplishment, and organized under practical topics like hiring people, running a meeting, and dealing with the press, Rumsfeld's Rules can benefit people at every stage in their careers and in every walk of life, from aspiring politicos and industrialists to recent college graduates, teachers, and business leaders.
The book provides unprecedented insight into leadership, management, strategy, and life—thinking that not only helped Rumsfeld lead the Pentagon in wartime, but earned him a reputation as one of America's toughest and most effective CEOs.
