Ron Paul 20/20 Banned ABC News Interview With John Stossel
 
Quote:

This in depth interview with Dr. Paul is quite revealing and eye opening and worth the time. And for the most part it all boils down to Ron Paul's premise that government should not be involved in our private lives. This man makes sense, America. Do your research. Learn about the man. You'll like what you see.

I've been supporting Ron Paul since the last election. I will admit that he does have a few absurd ideas, but for the most part, he is for the people and not big businesses...and that is what really scares a lot of people in Washington.

I respect Ron Paul because he is principled. unlike his cohorts in the republican party he actually adheres to his principles and isn't a mere shill for corporate America . Many of his ideas transcend the lines of left vs. right. that's why you have ultra liberals like Barney Frank who work closely with him.

I am 100% behind his push to first audit the fed and then eventually abolish it altogether. Andrew Jackson effectively banned the fed himself in the 1840's. Back then it was called the bank of the United States and was equally corrupt and unaccountable to the people. it needs to happen again

I respect him, but my fear is that some of his views are so extreme they may do more damage than good. but what the hell, it's not like he could do any worse than the other republicans lol.

they may be extremely different from the status quo, but that does not make them necessarily extreme in the ideological sense of the world. If anything, our current rules and way of doing things is rather extreme. extreme power and corruption of the gov't and the fed. extreme defiance of the constitution.

i agree with that, but I think that a system shock that large could possibly make the economy collapse.

and he'd never get away with it, every force in the country would be aligned against him, so at best he'd get absolutely nothing done.

I completely agree. The sad thing is that most people are to ignorant to realize this and see Paul's ideas as extreme, when in fact they are in our best interest. People have been conditioned to believe that what the government is doing right now is right, so when someone like Ron Paul comes along, all the media has to do is build a fear of him, just like they do with everything else. That's just my opinion though.

I think he has the country's best interest at heart, unlike his son. But that doesn't guarantee that it will be what he thinks it will be (generally).

although id like to believe that people are inheritly good, power corrupts. and when those with power make decisions in their own personal interest, no one will be able to stop them. i respect him for his principle and belief, but for me these choices are too laissez-faire. i wish the world could operate with a system like the one he invisions but i just dont believe that will work. this said i still dont agree with our current system
