Ron Paul now Republican congressman from Texas and of course a former presidential candidate himself he's calling in today on the telephone.
From Texas congressman Paul always good to talk to you if they poll.
Supporter is watching the debate tonight and you know needs to be convinced by Mitt Romney -- -- Romney have to do do you think.
They curious sound a little bit different than the other and be convincing that these policies -- lot different.
So many people join this freedom movement were frustrated -- with the whole process because.
They can't see enough difference that -- have to.
Can't be different unfortunately when it comes to you know whether it's the foreign policy.
They're very similar whether it has to do with Federal Reserve is similar.
So I I think -- our supporters -- too much similarity.
And I think he has to show that he is quite different just not on management style that really philosophically that's split let people.
How do you think those supporters who have a lot of enthusiasm for you in the primaries when you've.
When you run for president how do you think they'll break down in terms of their support in this election and and is -- 8020 Romney is to get closer to 5050 mean who what do they may think they'll move towards.
I think the best word to break down you know political price go different places.
Some will be angry at the Republicans for the way they retreated at the convention -- right -- might Dutch shell out so many vote libertarian.
You know may go with Romney -- there's actually -- -- -- young people.
Because of foreign policy she might go with Obama.
So it it's hard about it I know one thing for certain.
That they're not all going to the one place because they're very individualistic and they don't see.
The consequences of that because saying so I think -- the very difficult to predict.
Could be a big deal by the -- some special some of these swing states if they don't.
Show off -- -- gonna vote for.
The group seven Baghdad at least families that decide not to announce that.
I'm I'm -- -- this sort of that tight for a little bit low.
Now that's -- if you don't want -- -- and obviously in the some people amid a big deal about how the fact you know how you haven't endorsed Romney but it.
It hadn't really not decided or you just -- not to tell us.
Giving -- away about voting for somebody I don't obviously didn't.
You know I have an announcement support for -- and they know.
And think that's very unlikely engine building innovating -- -- -- vote for Obama so.
It's it's back to their frustration level.
Not seeing and dramatic choice in the way this system works best.
Yeah I think you know the inability like tonight there's -- debate going on.
And if you come to this conclusion that the candidates aren't all that different.
Slightly to just listen to two of them -- -- there are people who.
You know at -- here are capable of winning because there are a lot of them now Eric Johnson you're talking yeah I ended in this country yes.
You have probably left democracies and utilities other countries that we're trying to badger and being good.
You know -- good democracy.
-- vote for him then probably.
-- you Gary Johnson you probably support them irony about there you know.
Interstate is there anything but an investor one more question for -- -- -- because we have all these there's talk about the undecided voters out there I think Reuters said it's about 6% of the electorate and any other different polls say different things.
If there's something as you -- you're not gonna vote for the president is -- something that Mitt Romney could still do.
At this late hour to convince you you.
Ron Paul to support him.
Bring the troops so you know -- -- this.
Preaching of the foreign policy where he was just being -- and our presence overseas and that's alarm.
Big big thing with especially the young people have been in the freedom movement.
Foreign policy would have to change hand.
He'd have to get more than token support for a token audit of the Federal Reserve you'd have to say well there's something wrong with the central.
-- -- and economic planning because that is the reason we have -- Difficulty.
You know in the economy because of Federal Reserve policy no likelihood of hear -- bear very very slim.
And maybe maybe seeing how would you balance the budget.
I don't give our campaign we had a -- plans of cutting a trillion dollars and -- about it in three years with.
You know we're in -- who -- this crisis.
In movies or whatever we're gonna say anything.
Well maybe we ought to cut something.
They're not there is no proposal to cut any actual it always is tinker around with these massive.
Automatic increases in American people are starting to wake up and realizes all fiction and that they're not agree.
Our congressman Paul thanks as always appreciate it.
