Limited Government

Barr on Glenn Beck Again- 8/28

Wearing a t-shirt with the phrase infamously coined by  Barack Obama, “Bitter typical white person clinging to God and my guns”, conservative talk show host, Glenn Beck, once again gave Libertarian Presidential nominee, Congressman Bob Barr, a full hour on Thursday evening.  Like most of America, Glenn is unsure of who to vote for in November, but is also concerned about “throwing his vote away” if he votes third party.  Bob does an excellent job of presenting the case that voting for McCain or Obama is truly a wasted vote and that his message of smaller government, tax reform and personal liberty is what the country needs and what most voters identify with.

In this first video, Glenn asks Bob to answer the questions posed by pastor Rick Warren to McCain and Obama during the Saddleback Debate. They discuss the Russia/Georgia conflict and the finer aspects of Bob’s foreign policy stance, the current Supreme Court Justices, the definition of “rich”, and why higher taxes hurt the poorest of Americans.

Part two continues with tax reform, when military action should be used, global warming and energy independence.

Ron Paul: Government Can’t Protect People from Themselves

It’s videos such as this when I am reminded why we are fighting. Notice how Ron doesn’t even flinch when asked some of these very tough questions.

Imagine McCain or Obama fielding these sorts of questions from a reporter. I think they would be liable to storm out of the room and become visibly upset with the very notion of legalized drugs or prostitution. Instead, Ron delivers a reasonable and measured approach that includes some function of useful government - such as protecting children.
