Green and and there are people though aren't aren't just principal people in the Republican Party like Ron Paul for example.
Who agree 100% that that the the amount of spending that the increase in government the idea that government can can take over what the private sector does.
May be dissatisfied.
With the candidate like Mitt Romney and may in fact decide decide to run as a third party candidate.
Well I'm not predicting it but this is the kind of atmosphere were operating in the kind of may do.
Which could very well lead to somebody running and in that as an independent before we get through this election year.
Because -- What you've said it directly and on the correctly.
All of that Paul represents.
Some of the thank you.
Along the line -- look back I just can't get Mitt Romney down but I certainly -- Obama out on the left side of the political spectrum.
President Obama has people within his own party some of them supported financially and otherwise the last timers and -- I don't -- Republican office but I just don't think I can get down Obama again.
I'm not saying it's going to happen but no one should be surprised that they're very viable independent candidate.
If not Ron Paul someone of his cut gets in the -- -- -- we we -- we mentioned the 92 race of course a lot of people say the reason Clinton won in 92 was because Ross Perot ran.
In 92 got 19% of the votes a lot of which would have gone to bush.
That we had Ralph Nader.
Many people say he had that cost gore the election in 2000 so -- if if in fact you have a third party candidate if -- somebody is substantive.
As Ron Paul do you think that that sort of guarantees.
-- a bomber reelection.
Not necessarily I do agree if you had to bet that you -- it that way but let's remember you that mentioned 1992.
That I'm Ross Perot was leaving the presidential election he led both Clinton off and President Bush won Aniston.
Until he sort of if by some people exactly description kind of what Michael -- go to in this summer.
But even then after that he got back in the race in that you shake up almost 90% of the -- -- it shows you the potential.
I had -- I'd actually forgotten that he was in the lead at certain -- bottom line do you think do you think he's gonna do what I mean he has he has been.
Saying he is not gonna do it but just leaving a sliver of of opportunity because he could have.
As he said yesterday for example he I'm I'm one of the talk shows actually was Fox News -- he could have an effect on the Republican platform.
If he plays ball Wear the Republicans even if he doesn't get the nomination.
Well I'm guessing I'm wanna clearly labeled -- gushing I'm guessing in the in the long Paul doesn't do it.
For a number of reasons one of which you just mentioned another as you know he has a son who's a senator from Kentucky now and he would cut off son's chances in the party forever more by.
Running independent candidate candidacy.
But he can be a factor going into the convention not just for the platform but yes they Mitt Romney leads -- that -- delegates he can be a player.
But if you it's going to be a viable independent candidate we're pretty -- punitive but if there's going to be one.
I think number one it has to be somebody that's great personal wealth of his own.
Somebody -- I would say who's worth fifteen to twenty billion dollars of their own.
All and it has to be someone who's nationally known on my boss around anybody.
Well a Donald Trump -- Bill Gates.
-- Michael Bloomberg someone of that cut and probably somebody we didn't vote.
You know by the way again at 1930s -- to go back to that I did the election.
Depending on who is elected this country will change as much as it did when FDR was elected as a result of this election.
I think there's a very real possibility that Dan rather wonderful to see it and thank you so much for coming on appreciate it thanks for having -- --
