When Vince Vaughn is not acting in or producing a movie, there is a good chance he is reading about, or otherwise giving some thought to, political ideas. Interviewed recently by host Tom Woods at the Tom Woods Show, Vaughn described his political views as tending toward constitutionalism and libertarianism and recounted that he learned about and ultimately met libertarian communicator and former United States House of Representatives member and presidential candidate Ron Paul due to looking into the Federal Reserve. Abolishing the Federal Reserve has long been a major part of Paul’s agenda.
Paul, says Vaughn in the interview, “is really the only candidate I think I’ve ever endorsed, probably because I was most really in agreeance with him on stuff.” Vaughn, though, indicates in the interview that he is not interested in following Paul’s course of running for political office. Vaughn says that he has “always been very interested in history and politics” but never wanted “to throw my hat in the ring.”
