-- -- -- this Election Day and we are closely watching the key swing state of Ohio too hot button issues on the ballot -- hear the results.
Voters have defeated the State's new collective bargaining -- that John case it like this is it.
Expensive union backed campaign that pitted public workers against governor -- All -- -- voters also though rejecting the individual mandate portion of president Obama's health care overhaul law.
This is considered a troubling sign for the president in keeping Ohio a year from now the general elections.
-- Ron Paul's watching these results very close these try to replace President Obama and in fact has now said.
The president's -- spate of executive orders on the academy's effectively making him an elected dictator he joins us now I wanna get to that commented above about.
What do you think of Ohio -- rejecting a obamacare essentially.
Think that's good net's healthy is just sad too bad we don't apply that principle.
To about everything Washington does you know we'd like opt out and that's what they're saying they don't wanna be pushed -- But it when you think about how many other things that we're pushed into.
You know this is -- minor and and and a whole idea though is that this doesn't have the effect of laws so we have a long -- ago.
But I don't like the use of force I like -- -- terrorism.
That's what a free society it's mostly Alabama where -- like voluntarism you don't see much of it coming from the White House in fact you called the president in recently an elected to.
Dictator what do you mean by that.
We you know a couple weeks ago he announced -- -- congress is too slow they don't move fast enough so.
He he was very -- about a he says I'm going to.
Pass my legislation you know one piece at a time me you know and his stimulus package I'll write an executive order every week.
I mean that is -- I -- -- data is flaunting the constitution and the whole principles of how we're supposed to operate.
Even though these executive orders been around for long time -- complained about a -- long time.
But the idea that they can just do this and take over the legislative function and brag about it and congress does nothing in the course do nothing.
Very very bad but the word dictator of assets says pretty strong -- Well you know if if he he -- -- laws that he doesn't do the right way -- he's certainly virgin had on that direction but.
-- in a new even qualify that when you read the quote it is verging on that he's really in that -- he's dictatorial as what he has.
But this this is what our government solid bodies of what come when congress does get around to pass some -- -- dictatorial to the -- people what to do.
The the whole process for many many decades is what the whole tax system -- of that.
Dictating and dictatorial on telling people how would you -- their lives and how would you change and my down.
You you can't you have to change of a change in people's minds I think that's what's happening I think is why.
We have a Tea Party movement going out and people are demonstrate because they're sick and tired of what they're being dictated to just like the people I -- they were.
Tired of being -- you have to buy this insurance.
So the people's attitudes are changing the congress has to change we have a to have a new president maybe goalies in the constitution.
Did quit doing the things that are illegal.
But this this whole principle.
The executive branch as well -- -- judicial branch can write law.
Has to be challenged.
Because this how we got into this mess is like governments to -- And that has to be reversed.
There is going to be a vote apparently on a balanced budget about about and I'm looking for ways to handcuff the people elected office to prevent them.
From going to excess is is a balanced budget amendment one way to do that.
You have to be very very cautious I'm not cosponsor -- -- this mean I wouldn't vote for one but.
The big thing is is what -- they balanced budget by raising taxes you know the MB you know how how interest that I am -- monetary policy -- it would deal with the Federal Reserve because they created fifteen trillion dollar over the credit.
More than that congress does in many years you know and and they -- and -- off budget.
So it's those kind of things that you have to do we have to deal with.
The whole philosophy of government what's the role of government and the people have to decide do we wanna government.
That is supposed to police the world -- run a welfare state and.
Deficits don't matter we special live within in the constitution that's the big question -- have to ask and then find a good answer to.
Congressman in the course of your campaign sometimes people in a crowded field like Republican field is right now.
People on one side of an issue can push.
The of the candidates and have a better chance of winning and he -- -- do you sense any.
Progress and a part of somebody like -- from catching on this summer your ideas.
But the beginning.
Ahead here he -- made a couple comments about why we've been in in in Afghanistan too long enough that that was healthy but.
He sort of dropped away from and a.
He himself hasn't said too much about the Federal Reserve and other candidates have the other you know they mentioned they say maybe you -- we should know more what the Fed is doing.
And I thought that was healthy so is some ways.
You you know the ideas are getting out there.
But I I think you know that might be disorder pandering a little -- that.
I hope I'm given the true -- said to people need to hear.
Well if you have fair and I know this is going it's your -- six but if somebody like Romney becomes the nominee and if if he actually becomes the president of the United States do you think -- just forget about the lip service that he might have been given -- -- your ideas once he's president.
Room you know that that's the big question because you know there's a bunch of politicians running and sometimes you run differently in the primary that you do in the general so maybe.
He would say things the other candidates might say things you know to appeal to the primary voters and then what happens later on will be quite different.
This is the one advantage people have when -- look at -- I do because.
You know I say the same thing all the time in the senate for -- years so they.
Would have to worry about what I would do in a general election or as a president but there are these would let you know I wouldn't you know they these pledges on not raising taxes and such maybe we should demand more pledges from candidates.
You don't want to and I wrote an article called legislative malpractice if you didn't live up to your promises or beta constitution we out of have a right to sue the politicians a lot like they have -- -- -- -- that was tongue in cheek because I guess -- -- alternatives -- people or not voting -- the next go around.
But just think if they had to.
At face up to the obligation -- following their promises and pledges in their contract.
You know and private sectors you can be sued for breaking your promises your contract the politicians get away with this -- -- maybe maybe I'll keep thinking about that -- if you like the.
They get away with murder they always have and probably always -- by the way -- -- gave a press conference today I'm -- years -- sought or at least heard about it.
Part of what he said was went beyond -- particular accusations have been made against him.
Which may or may not be frivolous let me just play a part of that -- get you to respond.
The machine to keep -- businessman.
Out of the White House.
Is going to be -- -- it -- But about that is there -- machine.
Both Republican and Democrat that that.
Is against people outsiders I mean I know you've been in congress for -- you're kind of an insider but you have outside ID is but he's certainly an outsider is -- machine that is actively trying to prevent him from getting an office.
-- have to have him identify that and pinpoint it.
But there are times I think all politicians tend to be a little bit paranoid about who's out to get -- And even -- I have to confess there there are times when I think.
Well you know why am I excluding here why is this and why do we have a time.
But I see it more in philosophic terms because I'm challenging the status quo -- at philosophically you know keynesian economics the federal reserve system of foreign policy.
So to me it isn't strange I would expect people to be orchestrated try to keep this -- because we disagree with them.
And they don't want to people hear this message because they might like this message but I see than philosophic terms -- -- Oh I know there's a twelve people were fifteen people who gotten together and have conspired.
The either keep me out or somebody -- came out of the audit office I don't think it works that -- -- -- but.
-- -- your point if you're getting awards from people inside the beltway then you're doing some wrong right.
The -- I would think settled Ron Paul great to see is sir thanks for coming in good -- on -- campaign trail.
