Welcome -- -- -- show show and today our special guest is John Stossel well.
It's possible -- and you never know what's gonna happen in the after the -- I'll bet yet.
So there's an email that somebody wrote in and here's that the headline -- is just as much a nut job is Ron Paul.
Well yes that's true.
And -- there's been a little bit odd jobs saw him here's an explanation.
John Stossel is just confirming what a nut job he is just like Ron Paul I could support -- if -- were not for his legalizing drugs.
And the isolationist foreign policy craziness.
Part one at a time.
Isolationist what isolationist.
We should have -- movies infuriate bullets and other countries that we should smuggle in books that threatened authoritarian everywhere we should.
Trade with everybody -- goods cross borders armies don't.
-- -- Not always but often.
We should attack anybody who attacks us and let them know we will and Ron Paul says all that he's not an isolationist and drugs.
Very illegal now and we have a horrible drug problem plus crime.
The drug law does -- they don't make the drugs go away yeah but drugs are not as horrible is the government has made about a million people think.
They are but I have stats to show event.
In the areas where medical marijuana.
Has become prevalent and allow -- Okay I haven't seen that I wouldn't you surprised that it's easier to get for a while yet if you like -- is -- really I have I have.
And the Kanye then it doesn't hurt that much more -- -- the -- I just technique.
Conflict and it's -- -- but -- the -- war theory being that people are just saying they need a prescription can have a headache not -- getting you know they're getting funds to every night when I don't.
Because people abuse that role and I say so what if kids DeWitt that's a danger but the you don't think it -- you.
I say they can get hot now we're more easily than alcohol and alcohol is legal for adults and you don't see use -- -- as any big deal.
It can't be if you start -- young if you use it too often it can be terrible thing but.
Holland where it's pretty much legal fewer kids use it because they took -- that -- -- -- generations you know maybe it would take generations of that kind of.
Belief system to change after decade I mean the -- epidemic it take people long to learn the -- this drug which makes you feel so great first.
Is causing it is -- and for all these crack it it's certain.
Not offended at sesame -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- So much of what Ron Paul says I I do like a lot of what he says and what he stands for but that you know that the whole foreign policy thing.
You know he's he's let me at the bust up there there's going to be some stuff in his approach that you don't.
Agree -- completely.
I'm not so comfortable with the clarity it is abolish the -- The argument then what.
Well we did pretty well without said the idea central planning doesn't work the idea that a Central Bank would work I I think there's an argument both sides are just not -- conference do you like I also -- she didn't have his Jack of all the signal to access I think he needs a new coat.
A new Taylor plays.
I also wish when you ask him a question he would just answer the question and stop -- he goes on.
A politician John.
Can I just those are the only thing what's looking around so he's got to save the money.
-- his -- -- we got to save the money what would you like to say about him he does have the most drastic plan to cut government spending I think it's a trillion dollars.
Who wants drastic about -- not just saying amongst all the candidates because and we think we're going broke we need to make.
Big cuts including that the 700 billion we spend the Manila to hear from you that's gonna -- fun and you haven't found.
A program -- finally I get to defend my libertarian beliefs I like doing that and you know what you were libertarian before it was fashionable.
It's still not -- It's more accepted I mean you look at the polls Ron Paul's got anywhere between ten and 20%.
Any given poll of people who think that's the guy from an.
He had all these votes 500 to one he'd be the long vote saying.
Government doesn't have the authority to do this to tell us all how to run a lot do you think he's paving the way for his son to take up.
The same mental my hopes -- Here's your exit question assignment.
If that Ron Paul's not the nominee.
Try to figure out.
-- the eventual Republican nominee gets all of the independent vote that Ron Paul's currently getting and more importantly the younger demographic.
Country that out like until I return or that it might assignments -- -- -- Yet but I can think I think on it doesn't sound good now -- oral dismissed that wraps it up seamer.
