-- horrible Paul Ryan's budget Catholic protesters wanted to give it congressman's plan outside any inside his speech had no listen Georgetown University today.
-- you sign saying.
You there one today crucified the -- so now when you try to cut you are worse than -- My next guest says this is get.
Credible and a lot nonsensical.
He says start to cutting no matter the outcry would you be Texas congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul with -- -- congress -- -- added that.
Thank you gonna be where you know this is what happens -- and every time someone even.
Decides to address entitlements auto loan is used when it before many -- great respect for the congressman Ryan.
He -- -- really cut any immediate -- slowing the growth.
In in this case of Medicare and later on with his budget.
But if this is the kind of response he -- doing that.
Well that shows how difficult is going to be but there's several problems here.
First when government gets involved and if you some governments has to do all they care for the poor.
You have to admit they uses force you remember Mother Teresa didn't wasn't -- lobbyists and when Jesus -- on earth.
He's just being go to Rome to get the laws changed but this say -- I think there's some flaws it's -- Republican budget I did not support it.
But I also sympathize with Paul Ryan getting so much grief over even making a -- But I think is the priorities I I'd pick different priorities I -- -- isn't -- war spending an overseas spending.
And actually even with all my drastic cuts I won't cut a trillion dollar not protect the poor.
-- is not because I think this is the best way to do with -- -- in the transition I believe that.
It is better to cut overseas spending is -- deal with the military industrial complex.
So the Republicans set themselves up they want to cut.
But then they find that they cut something that looks like they're cutting the poor and they won't touch the military budget I think we have to listen to.
Eisenhower and deal with the military industrial complex.
Work our way out of it but not -- -- principle that is the responsibility.
All of the government to -- to promote they care for the poor because I think that belongs to the church not the government.
But as you know congress has come up and a number debates even featured an out of where.
But if -- -- sudden starts a Saber rattling again nor are attempting.
What that is and your college Segovia world war.
Bad timing for that kind of talk that that is something that the government has a responsibility to address.
Well I I think there it's very misleading -- -- -- the same argument they -- for Iraq Iraq was going to attack is they had planned to attack Iraq since 1998.
And finally finally excuse in that in 2003.
So that that was just to ward talk -- an excuse.
There's always going to attack us and our defense is strong we have more -- and everybody else put together so this idea that we have to do it for our safety just talking to them know.
Then -- zero aren't you see that their fear mongering a -- -- empty book can agree or disagree that but I it is edited cents.
Let's see you were to address a lot of the military spending I guess -- 600 billion or so.
North -- the about a year.
-- how much would you cut it.
A lot because you don't -- what's that's a -- to.
Well we spent over a trillion dollars when you add everything up you can cut hundreds of billions of dollars I'd bring just bring the troops who have the -- spend all their money here at home.
Because we are not providing defense we're just getting ourselves in the trouble.
So I would say that is more legitimate -- saying well we're gonna balance the budget on the backs of the poor.
Politically even envision it even if he looked at -- politically it doesn't make good sense I do it philosophically.
But I don't even endorse those spending and I do have some empathy for Paul Ryan because he has making -- detailed look at how much -- I'm complaining about him because he won't cut anything.
But I think is wrong to think that you can do it.
They're attacking food stands and medical care for the poor and not even.
Address the subject of the military industrial complex and changing our foreign policy because we spend way too much money in that area.
Right now it's pretty much you and then Romney.
-- -- sizzle but stepped out of the race.
You're sticking in right through Tampa.
Well -- -- a stake in news and find out how many of those come they're just in the process of counting -- -- -- any primaries -- then sure looks like commitment is that well I had.
But I'd like to see the votes count -- -- -- congressman where you could win this.
At eight I mean theoretically it's possible it's not -- and it's not likely be you know what the hook.
Now it looks like -- we might win Iowa.
You know after all these months you know you just think if I would've won Iowa for of the neither straw vote.
Just think of the difference it would -- -- -- campaign so you know there's a possibility we're gonna we're gonna win and the Minnesota we might win it mainly my domain name he's.
It's in my -- -- -- under the bridge and now but I mean.
Europe you know 800 delegates behind Mitt Romney he's at that -- hundred awareness through -- so is it really hits.
CEI I think it's pretty much so but we have to -- applies to win the election and the second is to maximize -- delegates.
With the maximum number delegates and -- and the excitement of a whole generation of individuals who say that we need to have changes.
That is that is victory in itself because right now that is where were who.
Winning the hearts and minds of so many people and that is probably long term a lot more important.
And who's going to -- the nominee here in the next two months you may not a lot of people's respect and -- that on congress and always -- -- thank you very much.
