It was not an anti war policy -- -- is.
Millions for defense.
Not one -- for empire that's not anti war he's in favor of a strong defense.
He's not in favor of playing the world policeman and traipsing all around the globe anytime anyone says they dislike the United States and launching war.
And it cost now -- an annual national security budget.
Of one point two trillion dollars are repeat that one point two trillion that's the exact number of our annual deficits that are running -- intro animation.
Now the fact is we don't go abroad in search of monsters to destroy and that's not just wrong -- you.
That was the view of the founding fathers those are the words of president John Quincy Adams then secretary of state in 1821.
So it's simply wrong to suggest that it's anti war he's totally in favor of defending the United States.
And our brave men and women should be given risking that last -- -- but the measure of devotion here in the United States protecting Americans.
Not risking life for Afghans Pakistan -- -- Libyans and otherwise those are good jobs for good samaritans who won Nobel Peace Prize is our government Ron Paul says.
Is a limited under the constitution our philosophy to defending America America first all right and you mentioned Libby Ron Paul has been no weighing in very specifically.
On Bolivia situation.
Yes exactly right not only because it's a fool's errand and and my judgment will end up with a regime at least as that is Qaddafi if not worse.
And it's already got a draft constitution that makes you -- -- law.
The foundation for all.
All new constitution.
Also this was the first time when He president openly stated I can initiate -- anytime they want despite the constitutional and trust meant exclusively to congress.
Of that authority article one section eight clause eleven this was -- most expansive grab an executive power history.
Now is overlooked because it seemed to be less dramatic than the wars in Afghanistan the wars in Iraq -- center.
But as a precedent that will wire around like a loaded weapon now -- basically said any president on his own can decide to go into Iran and initiate war North Korean issue or any place that He says as a national security interest.
And what history teaches and -- understands is that the executive branch as an incentive.
To -- danger because when war comes the power goes to the president the secrecy goes to the president the taxes and spending the contracts go to the president.
And that's why Libby is such a disaster when we actually had almost the orwellian statement out of the Obama administration.
That Libya did not involve us in quote hostilities because we didn't have foot soldiers on the ground we're just killing from the air we -- -- shot ICBM nuclear warheads there and destroyed every living thing and that wouldn't be hostilities so that's just an enormous expansion of executive power.
And that they Libya situation sad -- -- as opposed I think uniquely.
Among the candidates.
All right -- into the economy.
Paul has his ideas on that eliminate the income tax altogether.
Also refused to raise the debt -- feeling entirely.
Just elaborate more on his economic policies.
Well -- the income tax remember we survived and prospered as a country for over a 125.
Years without an income tax that came in as an amendment and the early nineteen hundreds.
And -- many state many nations who can raise proper revenue through -- through excise isn't what's oftentimes known as a value added tax.
And that is the way and you're gonna get government under control and I think.
If you're gonna have a balanced budget you have to prevent the government from borrowing money that's the guarantee of a balanced budget.
You and I if we don't have a good credit can go out and borrow money to buy a million dollar home the government should be and no different situation.
And that is what will bring fiscal sanity in this and you'll bring jobs right now the government borrowing gobbles up all the investment so there's very little to lend to start up companies and companies that need to credit to expand.
When the -- Out of the Bahrain market it means it's all available for the private sector to thrive -- -- those jobs.
