Default 1988 Ron Paul interview which shows he is consistent

Watch:


YouTube - Ron Paul - Interview 1988 : Health Care & Abortion !

YouTube - RON PAUL - A LIBERTARIAN PRESIDENT ??? ( 1988 ) PT 1 of 4

YouTube - RON PAUL - A LIBERTARIAN PRESIDENT ??? ( 1988 ) PT 2 of 4

YouTube - RON PAUL - A LIBERTARIAN PRESIDENT ??? ( 1988 ) PT 3 of 4

YouTube - RON PAUL - A LIBERTARIAN PRESIDENT ??? ( 1988 ) PT 4 of 4


YouTube - Ron Paul THEN and NOW!

Those of you who vote according to good looks can see he was a handsome guy too. Anyway, listen carefully to what he had to say.

Look at this video:
YouTube - Ron Paul vs. Morton Downey, Jr.'s audience 1988

He was quite rude to the guy who asked a question. It shows he has backbone though.

The truth is not always pretty. To be fair, the kid is a little overweight.

Attacking the person rather than the facual matter is not only rude. It is also a fallacy. Well, it was the Morton Downey Jr. Show. They were pioneers of those talk shows and we have got hundreds of duplicates since then.

He made his point. The war or drugs is about telling people what they can do to their body. It amuses me that people are against nationwide smoking bans but support the war on drugs. Why should a government have that much control over your body? It's not like the WoD is working. It'd also be a great way to increase tax revenue, decrease spending, and decimate the drug lords. Regulate it like alcohol and cigarettes if you want. We could even use hemp for bio-fuels saving corn for livestock and human consumption. You know you can grow two crops each summer in some areas of our country? It takes 25 years to grow a stand of trees that can do the same.

Ron Paul would make a great President, except that his ideas belong in the eighteenth century and he is rude to potential voters. Not a lot of upside there.
