Now joining us is presidential candidate Ron Paul solve.
Doctor Paul I think you're making some progress -- Newt Gingrich seem to be moving in your direction.
Yeah that was pretty neat did you know they've been they've been kidding me about me going -- -- back.
Maybe mainstream has come on my way me and -- I like it and and and they're doing a little bit of that on foreign policy and I like that too bad debt.
One of these days the act country's gonna wake up and do things we need to do.
And I understand you -- Steve on their little while ago and you know He and I've worked on the gold issue so.
I think we're making progress.
Though He was snickering knowing your foreign policy points but I say -- singer is not an argument.
That's right Dan nice man -- we what we've avoided that because we are good friends that we don't look for.
Battles on on foreign policy that we do talk about monetary policy and spending and taxes and these other things but you know my argument with others who talk about the war.
And I'll always argued that win this argument not because somebody give a great speech -- and persuade a lot of people.
I think that the economics will finally bring over a lot of the conservatives who have been anxious to fight these wars.
Because we can't afford any more you know I threat that number tonight it literally is into the trillions of dollars that we've been spending of these ten years.
And they're going to go on for decades when you think of the thousands hundreds of thousands of people applying for help.
At the veterans administration.
And that just tears me up to see the tragedy there because I just don't believe these wars are necessary and financially we can't afford them.
And I think our country is gonna come around to say enough is enough and I think we'll bring our troops home what what did you mean by the sixth war.
Well you know it's hard to keep up with them you know we're in Iraq.
We're in Pakistan on we're in Afghanistan -- in that we.
We bomb Yemen and we go in this Somalia.
You know -- -- five or six or seven ending a you know there's there's so many places that we're engaged and I think we start bombing a country.
-- engage in a war.
And right now that -- this thing going on for years building the case for attacking Iran.
You know how many troops as Iran -- out of their country.
Oh I I didn't chance to make that point that they have been there in their traditions their room that thousands at least hundreds of years is not to invade neighbors presenting evidence that -- Anybody who they are off -- -- more than a hundred years.
Iraq fact that clue what YR I wish you on this -- warm on.
-- are in our audience is just -- with fuel and we're gonna go to the audience in a moment a couple of the would like to ask your question I just wanna argue about a couple.
Issues immigration you say no amnesty.
No entitlements I with that.
But no amnesty I have -- don't let them vote where it would got ten million illegal immigrants here and we're just gonna keep them.
You know that that can be qualified and I do that in my book where I have you know quite a few pages to describe that.
But I I take the position you cannot roundabout there's fifteen million there's no way you can do it if they commit criminal acts and their hero -- I think it's justified to send them back home.
I have too many cases I've worked on where people.
The very illegal technically and they've been living here for twenty years I hardly -- speaks the -- I have no interest in sending him back I have no interest in punishing you know they asked me about punishing the businessman.
In the churches because they help immigrants and and I I think that is wrong.
But I'm not too anxious to reward them with citizenship.
You know you and I have to wait to -- -- senior when when I was growing up I had to wait almost 21 about -- on anxious for them to give the vote because that is very controversial.
Because there's a lot of event you know antagonism over the idea get the illegals and in the all vote for the Democrats believe -- that exists exists in California.
Exists in Texas so that is the reason I am not anxious to reward them we have citizenship.
But I have a special status for those who have been here -- -- did not commit crimes.
And I do think that we should have guards at the at the border we should facilitate it.
We should have a better work program.
But when I.
You know before the recession -- Half the business people that would come to my office half the people to come to my office talk about immigration one wanted more evidence because they didn't have enough workers.
Any others wanted to send them all home.
And the they the welfare state is that effects us is well.
Because it is true there there's some lost some led.
Are not anxious to get off welfare go to work for sector seven dollars an hour and I think the welfare the economic policies have a lot to do with the problem of immigration.
Let me go to my audience a couple people have questions for you the first person -- criticism -- -- for people.
I agree with you 90% of the time.
Well I wanna ask you don't you think it's a little naive to believe that.
Bringing troops home and allowing are in to have a nuclear weapon will make them abandon their desire for Jihad and to enact a second holocaust.
They committed Jihad against you -- There's somebody out Robert paid has done the research the ultimate research.
On on Jihad and suicide terrorism around the world.
And the Iranians have had nobody commit suicide terrorism they are radical islamists and they followed Sharia law.
And it's a place where you and I might not wanna -- The day they are not.
They they haven't gone 6000 miles from their shores invaded and occupied countries.
That's where the resentment comes from now I do not worry about them like -- sit in the debate.
They -- they don't even know how to make enough gasoline they don't have a nadir and air force -- Or anything they are not capable of attacking anybody in here were putting up anti ballistic missiles.
Right up on the borders of Russia because the the Iranians are about the -- weapons against this it's the same type of work talk that preceded going into Iraq.
There's too many people for too long have wanted to go against the war against the Iranians we opened the door trade with the Chinese we have done much better.
And in Vietnam we that we walked away from there.
And that countries become unified it's become westernized.
And a lot more has been achieved in peace and -- war.
I believe the founders in the admonitions if you trade with a country you are very likely not to fight a war with them.
And I wanna stop the wars because we flat I can't afford them anymore.
Are just -- quickly you wanted to say something nice.
Doctor -- quick question.
When I try to spread the message I -- resistance because.
You do not support welfare or Medicare or universal health health care how do you address -- because it does sound like we're.
Hold cold cruel yeah you know I just a quick cancer were almost.
Brown well it takes a little bit longer about what -- a true free markets is the only humanitarian system.
Just look at the failure of the system today that according get houses.
And the poor are not going to get their checks because the monetary system has been ripped up and the deficits don't matter and they know.
They're not going to get it.
So there is a clear failure of the do gooders effort to take care of the poor and and have safety net for everybody.
So the facts are gonna win that case for us morality should when it.
Because they're -- have a right to their life in a right to keep the fruits of their labor.
Thank you doctor Ron Paul I don't agree with you that is so it likely is some state might legalize polygamy but we'll have to talk about that in the.
