With his presidential campaign and congressional career behind him, Ron Paul has announced his return as the Honorary Chairman of Campaign for Liberty, a non-profit founded by Paul in 2008. In a fundraising email to supporters, Paul writes that he is returning at "our most critical juncture in years," which is true, because, again: just founded in 2008.
But while raising money for long-shot paleo-conservative candidates is consuming, a man of Paul's indefatigable nature needs more to occupy his time. What else will the champion of liberty be up to?

The coins featuring characters such as Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf the wizard will be legal tender in the country, New Zealand Post said, although their face value will be only a fraction of the cost collectors will be expected to pay.
