Thanks so much.
It's further ammunition for the Ron Paul campaign President Obama may ask for -- another increase.
In that debt ceiling and just a matter of a couple of days.
With us now to discuss his plans to restore -- Texas congressman Ron Paul congressman Paul welcome -- welcome back to.
Freedom watch what we have been listening almost all day to your colleague senator Jim -- you probably just turn us discussing this.
What former South Carolina governor.
Mark Sanford congress as senator demands argument is that you have.
Brought the debate to the point where it should be.
That the debate should be over just how small the government can be just how the government can and should stay within the confines of the constitution.
And there's no room and the Republican party for the big government Republicans who once we're here.
With he means that I guess is gonna vote for you next Saturday.
-- who knows maybe he will because I certainly -- his language and he speaks my language.
But you know we he -- give me a very nice compliment because there has been one of my goal is to get the debate shifted.
Shifted away from -- power struggles on how to use government power in spending money.
And that but that's why people so discuss that you would have Republican big government people vs democratic big aren't people.
So I think the debate has to be those who call themselves fiscal conservatives.
But reject the notion is a very limited government and the constitution.
And I think we've driven that debate away from you know to get a broader field of view I think -- talking about.
To get more Republicans in -- you need to get.
Coalitions -- you need to bring people win by sticking on principle.
And I think that's what he's talking about can you -- showed -- -- with Mitt Romney in South Carolina and Florida.
And then a month and a half later on Super Tuesday.
But I I would hope so because I think I've heard all of those cliches for so long.
Right now even with some of the polling shows I do quite well probably equal to what Mitt Romney's doing against Obama.
But I think my ideas -- clear and I don't have convinced the words you know I can.
IIE I know what we student should stand for so I don't have to be flip flopping around.
Or trying to.
Satisfy one group vs another group you've known me long enough that I come from -- from a very constitutional perspective and a very free market for prospective.
And -- -- stand for the right of individuals to run their lives -- -- spend her own money.
Do do you think that it will be you against Mitt Romney.
That Rick Santorum man Rick Perry and that Newt Gingrich.
Each of -- was -- had to borrow money each of -- has an odd take on the role of capitalism.
In our lives and by the way.
Thank you for defending Mitt Romney on the issue for which Newt Gingrich -- that it was you know who was being the pure defender of the free market there but do you think there's enough of view in the Republican Party.
To bring you against Romney alone and that the others really are vulnerable.
Because they are basically just big government Republicans.
What senator -- says we don't need anymore.
Well if you'd asked me -- six months ago land.
I would -- -- had -- answer you know not a very good chance there was always a chance you're on there and you're trying to prove.
Present your viewpoints but I think the sentiment -- change I mean just since it's New Hampshire you know we picked up quite a few points in South Carolina so.
So people shift their opinions in the getting on the national stage makes it different.
So there certainly is an opportunity but.
Two deny the fact did Mitt Romney has a pretty strong leading -- a lot of money.
Makes it pretty tough in everyone's so I you know some of those other media outlets on its equity friendly toward -- that was definitely is a long road are those other media outlets still ignoring you are you getting your fair share of exposure.
Well I I think I AM but some of it is you know directed at certain fashion in a -- it worked out we're talking about you now that I think they distort what I'm saying.
-- I have that much complained -- hello my supporters do the complaining.
But -- we're getting more attention there's no doubt about how can they.
Have become Vienna on a strong us second place in New Hampshire re not talk to may so I think I think we definitely are doing better I don't they don't they have only.
89 seconds at the next debate tepid trade I think those days are past will be watching congressman Paul to pleasure thanks for joining us.
Thank you --
