-- -- world segment tonight congressman Ron Paul from Texas continues its quest to be president even almost polls have him around 10%.
On its website mr.
Paul was complaining.
That the media was ignoring him we don't like to see that.
Paul deserves some recognition so we invited him on -- factor unfortunately He turned -- down so.
We sent producer -- waters to see him in New Hampshire.
Just two hours of fox in this area -- and we have just a few questions for you why wouldn't you come on the O'Reilly Factor we're all pretty surprised.
It's pretty good exposure.
You know I never remember getting a precise invitation of then I -- I heard was He was sort of ranting -- TV.
And IE down I price had other things to do it maybe better things Bruno's use saying that the media is ignoring -- it's a pretty big -- rally was pretty disappointed because here -- you guys had quite a spark the last time.
Well He isn't exactly and a journalist.
If -- He had been more journalistic might have considered that.
There He doesn't -- process being journalistic.
Albeit a journalist bill sent me -- -- a little shorter than He is so this is the no spin zone to -- a few questions for you.
Are you okay with Iran developing a nuclear weapon.
And all they're saying is.
Aren't we entitled to one matter of fact there's no evidence for sure that the -- because so far the evidence.
Whether it's with -- CIA of the United Nations.
They do not have concrete evidence -- -- on the verge of having a nuclear weapon so you're president you wouldn't do anything to stop Iran from looking up.
Well what my policies would do would probably the you give them less incentive -- talk tournament probably remove the blockade and not threaten them.
They they want weapons -- you you know did the Libyans had a nuclear weapon program and we talked him out of it.
So once -- get rid of their nuclear program wondered what we do we went in there and did you know took a -- So I would say that.
It if we could see a little bit how other people think.
You know see treat people might we might want to be treated so now I am not I I don't think it would be the end of the world.
And your big gold -- you talk about gold a lot bill thinks this is fascinating but it's a little confusing.
We want to do with gold.
While I -- just the -- the constitution.
The constitution says -- on the gold silver can be legal tender.
And it and bill has a little problem -- economic understanding have you noticed that He doesn't announce.
You know the words quite correctly and He admits it that He doesn't know much about it -- -- -- -- -- what is your idea of what we should do with school this is -- in Fort Knox -- shall we start digging it up.
I just said we should Obey the constitution that goes over legal tender.
Why doesn't He care anybody care about the constitution.
Right now and nobody legalize Paper money.
Where -- it come from they just ignored they talk about the constitution -- it pleases them but when it doesn't please them like going to war without a declaration go bomb.
-- bomb Iran you know they might get a nuclear weapon.
Well those -- declaration of war why isn't that some people you know I think we should debate atrocities sometimes but -- -- -- -- and so that you wanna explain that to O'Reilly.
What He went -- understood.
-- thank you very much.
He all right hey now as Jesse -- now I have read the constitution does -- -- about gold.
And silver what is He talking about he's misreading the constitution in this theory -- his has been around for quite some time.
It's just not taken very seriously in those circles article one section -- of the constitution says congress has the ability.
To cooling money and regulate the currency and doesn't say anything about golden -- right away I think he's saying is -- article ten.
Does not allow the states to print money and that's just because you don't want to Massachusetts having one currency in New York have right now that's chaos right and he's misinterpreting.
Okay and also there is part of that in the states saying that says.
If they're gonna have any cost wage at all that has to be.
Since had a -- with the United States have to use gold -- silver they can't use you know.
Mutton reflect you have to do that -- private so no I'm.
I know that I according -- -- don't understand economics but I think I understand constitutional little bit because in 1971.
We went off the gold standard under President Nixon.
In two the Federal Reserve notes because we were worldwide currency and remember everybody.
Before that you could redeem your money for goldmans over and -- government simply couldn't do it couldn't do it now.
So what are we to think of Ron Paul I mean is -- -- and I mean what are we to think of him.
I when He when He comes up with this kind of stuff by I don't really know -- is a very large following and I expected him to be a little nicer to you that He was very current money and He doesn't like -- He doesn't like -- and then afterwards He said to me you know bill wouldn't let me talk but you would -- synthetic -- you know you're much nicely and I -- But -- when He was on here He kind of wandered into Lawrence of Arabia and then -- it's only an hour show.
We had you know what telephone we might -- -- -- -- not I'm not being disrespectful -- -- it was opinion doctor -- other ways medical.
But I do think he's pretty far.
Our Jesse good to go work as always is not -- was in Jersey Shore but you have a good job.
