The problem with Freedom is that too many don’t really know what it means, and I think that’s the essence of all political problems in America right now. Far and away too many people believe that freedom means a guaranteed job, food, clothing, and health care; it means "freedom" from being offended, insulted, marginalized or ever made to feel uncomfortable. "Freedom" means the luxury to disregard — indeed to flat out deny — one’s shortcomings.
So I don’t know that Ron Paul’s claim that "Freedom is Popular" is altogether true if we’re talking about real freedom. Nonetheless, it’s a good message and I really like how he’s been getting to the essence of the message; which is, that good people don’t force their will upon other people. Of course, talking "freedom" where the presumption is that people ought to be free to be as stupid or as quirky or eccentric or perverted as they want to be in one thing. The freedom to produce and to receive all of what one has bargained for and owing no one anything for that right (it’s not a privilege) is quite another.
The "Philosophy of Liberty" link over to your far right lays it out in more explicit terms for those interested.
