Joy Behar hosts Steve Baldwin and Dr. Ron Paul, giving them the opportunity to debate the pros and cons of legalizing marijuana.
Dr. Paul explains the truth behind earmarks and the responsibility Congress has to earmark every single dollar.
Quotes from Andrew Malcolm’s take on this video:
Here’s how silly Ron Paul is: He set a budget for his campaign and lived within it. Flew commercial.In fact, he ended with no deficit, which is how he thinks the federal government should operate. In point of fact, Paul ended his campaign with a surplus. Can you imagine anything so silly in this day and age?
Paul warned all during his campaign about a looming economic disaster if government just kept growing and growing and printing more money like Republicans and Democrats wanted.
Dr. Paul takes questions from viewers and answers with his usual candor, including criticism over Obama’s policy of removing troops from Iraq to Afghanistan, claiming it’s not really different from the Bush administration plan. When asked if he plans on running for President again in 2012, Dr. Paul does not rule out the possibility.
Dr. Paul discusses the spending bill and the credibility of the Republican Pary with Bill Maher, and argues that regulation and spending has created this crisis, not the free market.
What if we wake up one day and learn that the terrorist threat is a predictable consequence of our meddling in affairs of others and has nothing to do with us being free and prosperous?
Dr. Paul correctly terms the stimilus package a “spending bill” and voices encouragement that other Republicans are standing against it.
Ron Paul in answer to the idea that “the house is already on fire and we need to put water on it”: “You’re correct, the house is on fire- you think we’re putting water on it. I think we’re putting kerosene on it.”
In this video, Dr. Paul cuts to the chase by pointing out that Obama is really making an argument for more and bigger government, while attempting to camouflage it behind fanciful (perhaps one could say “Orwellian”) rhetoric.
