Big we will succeed took me alone time to figure that I spent years is a consumer report calling for government to prevent rip -- -- Pass regulation.
To be twenty years to realize that -- more harm than good.
But my next guest is smarter than nine he understood that years before.
Presidential candidate Ron Paul has done more than just about anyone to defend individual liberty he joins us from the campaign trail so.
Doctor Paul how's it going here in Berkeley of all places where.
I think -- people as hostile to free market.
The bastion of capitalism right here in Berkeley has actually.
We have a real nice crowd so we're very pleased.
You got lots of students turning out.
We've ended three universities here in California -- -- -- have been fantastic you know 56000.
Onetime close to 7000.
But don't look for any reports in the newspaper hasn't shown up in a newspapers -- so we have to get the message out some other way.
-- a 7000 certainly is -- -- usual crowd and I would assume these I would wish these students understood you your fiscal issues but it's mostly because they.
Want war -- stopped.
I I think it is but boy I spend a lot of time -- in the -- my speeches and a 45 minutes or so and the whole purpose or my goal has always been.
Those who -- interest in personal liberty and there anti war.
And talk to do about it well if -- for individual liberty in the social sense.
You have to be for individual liberty and the economic sense if you want your.
To lead your life as you -- audio springer on my issue Jews and a should be an incentive system.
So -- try to put.
This package together because for so long probably -- a hundred years now.
We've had people think that there's economic liberty and social liberty and they're two different things in two different groups defend each half and I don't think -- work if the -- we put it together.
Let's talk about economic security I think our biggest problem I think is that Medicare is going broken Social Security to.
President Obama said that we would not be a great country without them.
-- -- But we're going to be a -- company with -- and if you're broke it's not a very great country and I think what we're witnessing today.
-- the two countries broken nobody wants to admit it and that's why they're still fighting over a pie that is shrinking.
On a CNN debate you said -- cut a million you'd cut a trillion dollars right now and you basically were ignored.
Yes there because I -- ICS being in a debt crisis -- which is a result of a spending crisis.
In a lot of Republicans claim they care a -- but they don't -- anything right now the proposal on the table.
For the Republicans -- the balance the budget in thirty years I just sort of laughed but yes I mean.
Billion in the economy she still we have five year plan is that we have a thirty year plan to balance the budget.
No real cuts.
And even this modest cut from Paul Ryan is being called -- social darwinism by the president.
And that resonates with people.
-- it doesn't even -- I didn't vote for the budget and I criticize -- I sort empathize with his problem you know.
He doesn't really -- -- -- look at agrees he gets.
Now you wanna pull our troops back -- I certainly agree we we have 50000.
Soldiers in Germany and 36000.
I don't know why they need to be either either but let me push back on some of these issues.
You say it was right to go to war in World War II was right to retaliate in Afghanistan but these other interventions.
Our mistake but some would say our interventions in Kosovo Bosnia Serbia Grenada and Kuwait.
Weren't they good thing.
I don't I don't think so we that we don't have authority we don't some people might argue that look at a wonderful turnout and Iraq and and the mess in Afghanistan -- there's long term consequences but the -- lawless.
Is probably more important.
Then a token success -- bombing people and killing a bunch of people.
Who knows what would have happened if we have not been an area might have come to a conclusion lots and there was a lot of less -- and death and destruction.
So I think we have to protect the rule of law not allow -- to go to war without the consent of the people should declaration and the congress.
Thank you doctor Paul I really admire your stand -- campaign away.
I wanna tell the audience that the last time you were here I ask you if you were tired of this thing you said the only thing you minded as you didn't get to exercise is often as you like to and I ask you how often do you like exercise.
-- today I like to walk in the morning and ride a bike in the afternoon and but I don't get it.
My adequate amount of exercise I get very grouchy so Hydro market -- Thank you doctor -- --
