I want to hear when -- president speaks like.
Government's too big.
And politicians often say exactly that.
The federal government has to -- -- and it -- -- users -- do an -- The audience applauds but afford unfortunately though they applaud and say that.
Once they get elected they go on to spend even more.
But President Obama oh -- even say that -- -- -- problem it's doubled in size since President Clinton because.
Any politician promises to cut actually cut government.
Yes one did and he's running for president and he areas governor Gary Johnson former governor of New Mexico.
Cut the number of state employees by a thousand.
I thought that would appeal to Republican voters but you've now given up on the Republican primaries you're running as a libertarian.
That appeal to people.
-- you know it's it's it's about a message and I think it does appeal to people and I think that for the most part Ron Paul on higher delivering the same message show -- have -- he resonates and you dropped out how come well.
I don't think Ron Paul's gonna end up.
Winning the Republican nomination and so this is always been about the message and it's an opportunity -- continue to talk about this agenda.
Is gonna die when Ron Paul doesn't get that nomination now that's just my guess that's just my per -- projection.
And there -- some polls -- they say what of its Obama against Romney and against you.
You get 9% of the vote which is more than most people would get but then it seems.
What -- your reaction that.
Well first of all I think that anybody running as a third party right now is gonna pull -- -- that kind of a level.
What's exciting to me is and by the way I am not the nominee I'm running for the nomination.
But the libertarian nominee may end up pulling at 15% and potentially be on the national debate stage with.
Obama and I'm gonna projected Romney is gonna end up being the eventual.
Republican nominee and what good is it.
Getting 15% of the vote as a third part.
That you would actually be able to talk about this agenda and get it to resonates and potentially change the world a little bit.
By having the other candidates embrace what I think is really very very populous the notion of balancing the federal budget of one point four trillion dollar reduction in federal spending year one that's something that I'm promising to submit.
To congress but you know the talk tonight was two trillion dollar reduction.
That's -- letting.
It's so misleading because it's a ten trillion dollar it's a ten trillion dollar rid increase its gonna be reduced by two trillion dollars over a ten year period so really weren't I think it actually spent nine trillion this is I agree we've agreed to cut two trillion off the future deficit.
But it was going to increase by nine trillion now it'll increase by seven trillion which.
And and I don't know exactly what that time period is ten years but I'm believing that we're on the verge of a monetary collapse unless we actually address this some.
The that we're gonna find ourselves in the midst of that monetary -- we're we're we're gonna end up -- nothing.
But Obama didn't really mention the big four defense Medicare Medicaid and Social Security he dedicated three sentences to entitlements and -- Big Three really or Medicaid Medicare and military spending in each one of those need to be reduced by 43%.
When I talk about military spending I think that's the biggest threat to our national security is the fact that we continue.
To borrow and print money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar that we -- -- other lines to sound good it's time to apply the same rules from top to bottoms of the president.
No bailouts no handouts no compacts.
And then he follows that up with what he talks about our bailouts and and just everything's so so it goes from one to another.
You know the the F financial institutions he talked about -- a trade enforcement.
Look I think the answer to that is is.
The fair tax I mean make us down -- competitive do away with our corporate tax.
Arguably make our goods and services 23% more competitive.
I think issues were really put on the back burner tonight financial crimes you -- financial crimes.
Look I think people a lawyer -- that we weren't Smart regulations to prevent.
You're responsible both fail -- that behavior rules to present financial fraud.
So apparently Dodd-Frank and that's this south sick it is is in the not -- mobile.
You know -- via via a new outrage over the -- Over the bail -- citizen is that time these.
People that made these decisions should have been allowed to fail.
They should have failed I think -- much rather would have gone to prison and then not to lost all their money and of course they didn't lose all their money they were bailed out.
And now they're receiving bonuses I just share in the outrage that this country.
Is for sale in both parties are selling at both parties have their hands out to grant those special loopholes and and both parties argued we have to bail them -- -- they'll be worldwide financial catastrophe.
And -- -- you know almost free market economists that time I talked to said that there wouldn't have been not any system failure and that they should have been rewarded for their bad decision making by being allowed to fail.
This is America why is that capitalism on the way -- and communism on the way down another thing he said that sounded good.
I believe what Republican Abraham Lincoln belief that government should do for people only when they cannot.
Do better by themselves.
For no no more and do any thing he's said it right the Thacker is there anything that you and I as individuals can't do that government can do better.
I can't think of a single -- -- -- defending ourselves from a for an attack.
Well so that is the fundamental role of government is to provide protections from you and I against bad actors whether they be individuals.
Whether there are celebration of government we do need.
Libertarians agree we need government for stuff like -- -- right.
Thank you think I was thinking -- his civil liberties.
