The question is can congressman Paul survive the attacks.
Now that it's apparently has turned to receive them.
Joining us now Amanda was work with congressman Paul for decades good friend of the show -- -- chair of the -- institute.
In Auburn Alabama -- it's a pleasure welcome back to freedom watch.
Judge great to be with you given.
President government thank you little given that big government seems everywhere these days.
Every aspect of our lives regulated by the -- government how do you explain the rise of Ron Paul.
Well I think it's precisely that it's actually two things.
First of all the economic crisis this is what's changed from four years ago when it goes wrong said there was going to be a crisis and everybody laughed at them but of course he was correct.
So after four years of economic terror -- were all -- for ourselves for parents for our children.
We're worried about the future we know that the -- you know we know about crony capitalism on Wall Street.
We know about Goldman Sachs and -- Citibank and bank of American all the big.
JPMorgan all the because living at the trough -- the expense of the average person people are angry about that as well they should be also.
And it took them long enough but today they realize we're living in a police state I mean not only is the government.
Running a police state in fact all around the world for many many countries the running -- it here at home and there's nothing that's beyond them the great.
As a government that felt -- could do any thing.
There was nothing beyond that -- might not do everything but if it decided to do anything it could do it so this is the government that for resembled an order us not to use our cell phones and our cars.
-- people as a threat it's or angry oddity -- wanna change right it certainly seems to be getting that way.
How how do you read the Republican establishment -- I mean what what what's Republican establishment do for example.
If Ron Paul wins the Iowa Caucuses are right now he's in a tie for first let's just three weeks out.
And then winds are finish -- a close second or even a -- third.
In New Hampshire what will those establishment big government Republicans that run the party do.
Well first of -- -- they're terrified of them.
But I think they're not gonna be quite as vicious the media will be because they're afraid he -- run as a third party candidate or as an independent.
So they're actually not wanting to drive him out of the party.
So I predict it will not be quite as nasty but the -- surrogates.
In the media and otherwise to after -- as you said the knives will be out how.
How do you explain something like -- Bob Barr.
Who was one of the prosecutors have a Bill Clinton in the impeachment saga who was that he libertarian nominee for president in 2000 -- eight.
Who calls himself a staunch libertarian endorsing Newt Gingrich of -- people.
Well legacy of wants have a future in Georgia politics site I don't know I I must say he's -- had an animus for Ron Paul.
And so I guess that much of that must be part of it.
Bob Barr is good in some civil liberties areas.
Some people would question whether you really is a libertarian and in other matters but I think it's just a matter of judging his own future and he wants to be.
Get -- good of the Republican establishment in Georgia they all.
Endorsed Gingrich which is seems to me all all you need to know about the Republican establishment in Georgia that they would -- for this a neo -- War mongering crooks are from will.
Vote from DC.
Right Lou Rockwell giving us the inside scoop from the Ron Ron Paul -- a -- it's always a pleasure thanks for joining us.
Thank you judge.
