Actor Vince Vaughn is one of the few liberty-lovers in Hollywood. As an active voice in the liberty movement, Vaughn has endorsed Ron Paul, spoken for Ron at presidential campaign events, was a keynote speaker at the California Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) conference this year, and most recently, has announced his support for Rand Paul as a presidential candidate.
Vaughn has been vocal about his support of liberty for years, and has even endorsed liberty-loving candidates along the way. Vaughn endorsed Ron Paul during his time as Congressman in Texas, and introduced him at a conference in 2011 when he was running for president.
More political than his Hollywood counterparts, Vaughn has been recognized as one of the biggest liberty-loving actors in the past few years. Vaughn even invited Ron Paul and his wife Carol to the Hollywood premier of Vaughn’s movie “Couples Retreat” in 2010.
At the beginning of his political endeavors, Vaughn says he called the Congressman Paul for advice. “I have always been interested in the Federal Reserve, questioning it, you know? So I [decided] to call Ron [Paul] and he was very warm, very genuine and nice so we started a friendship. He was always more than willing to talk to me about different issues.”
Just this year, Vaughn was a keynote speaker at California's YAL conference. At the conference, Vaughn talked about the instability of the federal reserve and how he tries to talk politics with other actors and producers on set.
And it is wrong. Stay cool, Vince.
