Ron Paul's Views

It's nice to have a candidate who I concur with on everything. RP for Prez folks.

Nicknamed "Dr. No" for his willingness to vote against any legislation he believes increases the size of government. Strongly anti-abortion and opposed to federal funding for abortions. Gun rights backer. Has called for an immediate end to the Iraq War. Opposes the death penalty and free trade agreements. Vowed to abolish the Internal Revenue Service and phase out the Federal Reserve if elected president.

Ron Paul on the Environment

The Pentagon burns more fuel than the whole country of Sweden.

What's your take on global warming? Is it a serious problem and one that's human-caused?

I think some of it is related to human activities, but I don't think there's a conclusion yet. There's a lot of evidence on both sides of that argument. If you study the history, we've had a lot of climate changes. We've had hot spells and cold spells. They come and go. If there are weather changes, we're not going to be very good at regulating the weather.

To assume we have to close down everything in this country and in the world because there's a fear that we're going to have this global warming and that we're going to be swallowed up by the oceans, I think that's extreme. I don't buy into that. Yet, I think it's a worthy discussion.

So you don't consider climate change a major problem threatening civilization?

No. [Laughs.] I think war and financial crises and big governments marching into our homes and elimination of habeas corpus -- those are immediate threats. We're about to lose our whole country and whole republic! If we can be declared an enemy combatant and put away without a trial, then that's going to affect a lot of us a lot sooner than the temperature going up.

The Best Store in Town

Walmart. What a beacon of capitalism. Today I went there and bought 16 items and 10 of them were less than $3! I love it!

Why Sound Money Matters

Of all the issues that people attack Ron Paul for, the one they make the most fun of is his desire to return to sound money. That is very sad. It shows just how ill informed the American populace is about the danger of fiat money and why it was banned by the Constitution. Our founders knew better, we have forgotten.

To fully explore the issue takes entire books such as What has Government Done to our Money? by Rothbard and The Creature From Jekyll Island by Griffin and others.

I Was on the Radio!

I called into Michael Badnarik's radio show in Austin and spoke with Bernard von NotHaus about the recent FBI and Secret Service raid of the Liberty Dollar headquarters. Click here if you want to hear me on the show. I'm on for about 3 minutes starting at the 26:50 mark.

If the link above doesn't work, click here and look at the November 16th show. Click where it says M3U and I'm on in the second hour.

Greatest Scam in History

Global warming of course, although I would argue Dennis Franchione is a close second.
