Presidential candidate Ron Paul join his -- -- Good evening nice to be with you.
Nice days yet I can't let me give me a hug and a not so much a hypothetical but it -- -- fact pattern.
Assume tonight -- the president nice states -- -- find problems in Syria we have just closed on our embassy and there's a massacre by a Syrian government against its people.
Number two that Israel is talking about perhaps the next two months taking some sort of action against Iran.
And three Egypt is holding -- ninety are holding a number of Americans may be trying nineteen Americans what are you going to be doing about all three of those problems tonight.
So you say you create problems over forty years that I have three -- three a minute this awful is brought.
Now I think it's our intervention ever that I guess is in all this trouble and that we -- to be minding our own business we shouldn't be fighting wars are on declared.
And if we want to -- -- -- take it.
Well let me if -- I know we shouldn't we shouldn't be an -- -- You know.
This is why the greatest is the biggest issue for me to get -- enthusiasm from young people on the people who care about what I'm doing.
It's when I say.
Yes quit spending our money overseas we're going broke in the last ten years we spent four trillion dollars worth -- dad fighting these wars.
In all my argument is declare -- if you wanna go to war declare wars fight and win and come home like -- world -- true.
But -- do analysts wars -- declared.
-- into Syria now.
Well what are they get the authority Obama who went into Libya the and he'll probably go -- around the rest of people aren't ready for more -- besides we can't afford it.
So if when you continue to do this this will just drive us into bankruptcy and quite frankly.
This idea give me a little bit credible one because I know -- -- one nickel.
-- this militarism.
A on you you have to -- Not one Republican not one Democrat and all Washington all the candidates are cutting anything.
They're always just having a little bit of the proposed increases.
You have to cut and right now there's nobody wanted and that's why we're gonna go off a cliff.
We're gonna have an economic crisis a lot worse in four years ago is going to involve too much entitlement spending and too much foreign adventurism trying to maintain an empire.
That we no longer can afford.
I don't think there's anybody in this country is good denied it even talking about cuts and they had the most -- fiscal conservative of the for a they came back.
But the questions are curious about it what I gotta say -- -- -- noted going into Syria I don't know that and it was even suggesting going in Syria.
But these are really hot where there aren't working on my what takes that we hasn't said where there.
Do you say.
Com a whole would you say don't have anything to do with the it -- the with trying to get some sort of -- me even diplomatic solution to Syria.
Do you do that you say anything to Egypt tonight about send those Americans home.
You get involved with that you have conversations with -- -- surge is trying to understand what you're seeing on tonight with promptly already half.
Sure you -- diplomacy -- Kennedy did that with Khrushchev at the height of the Cold War when they were in Cuba so now yes you -- we -- talk to people.
But I'm looking at the full -- -- of what we've been doing for thirty or forty years.
How many billions chance -- forty to fifty billion dollars we gave Egypt.
Finally the people got restless with the dictator we had propped up there.
Now we have a government in exhibits anti Israel it doesn't help busted bankrupt us and hurts Israel and now the conditions are breaking down in that area.
And now we're saying well we're gonna put sanctions on Iran who's -- gonna hurt Eastern Europe are allies that we put in a NATO as well as Turkey.
And it makes no sense whatsoever to think that we can continue to do this spend this money.
Get involved of George Bush in 1970 ram on a program of humble foreign policy no nation building and don't believe didn't see the -- tell the world.
In a Republican elected -- the country love to but now I talk -- in years ago that he's he's on American.
All I'm doing is talking about what George Bush talked about the year 2000 what the founders talked about and what the constitution authorizes force.
End and that I think that's and certainly -- like how we got there are prompt some traffic how we get out of our problems and what we do with the existing problems we have.
Are you saying and -- tell me if I'm wrong that these sanctions the President Obama decide an executive order yesterday.
But the sanctions -- in Syria in against Iran is not something that you would endorse her courage because it of the finance.
Okay and so.
Absolutely not I I voted against them and I think they're terrible I think it's gonna hurt the people who are trying to overthrow.
-- the -- -- people people when they're attacked from the outside and made -- -- They become more nationalistic.
He he did he defends it just think of forty years of sanctions against Cuba that's all backfired on us and is it's an -- of people who don't like my foreign policy as well -- an isolationist.
People who put on sanctions on the isolationist.
I don't want -- -- people who.
About Iran and end their quest for nuclear weapon anything at all.
I -- I'd quit trying to overthrow our government we've been doing that since 1953 and they don't like this for us.
And I think what we should do is that let Israel deal with that.
They have hundreds of nuclear missiles they took care of Iraq's nuclear power plant back -- -- -- -- defended them for it.
But to restrain Israel and take over their sovereignty.
By giving them money than they can't defend their borders and they can't develop their peace treaties that we are really hurting Israel.
Yeah inadvertently of course be doing this.
But even Israel the head of his head of the -- -- Even if Iran gets a nuclear missile it's done it's it's not an -- essentials threat to two Israel.
And there's a lot of discussion going on is this idea that we have automatic to go to war and start a war against ramp.
It's crazy I mean I guess as always we're broke where we're broke so -- war with Iran makes no sense whatsoever and that is what's coming if we don't change our -- I know so horrible thing to give me an -- to answer serious question gloated about the nineteen Americans who are facing trial in Egypt what if anything.
I would have done a long time ago I went to prop up a dictator.
And then encourage the overthrow -- you gotta do it you gotta work diplomatically.
And China and try to get them out out of there as best you can't.
We have some responsibilities.
But there's going to be a lot more of that because.
This is a consequence of a flawed policy that reaction to pass -- blow back and our people suffer the consequences government.
Is it I just think it's like you know there.
Hard sort of backed out of situations too abruptly but the terms of you know our foreign policy do we is -- a better doing this one they also wake up and backed out of.
-- -- -- That's the -- we went and we just might stand for no good reason to all these countries we ought to just march home.
Because we're we're not -- it's not a legitimate war and we don't have the money.
No longer within the more people -- the more American stock in more bankruptcy we -- We're not serving any purpose and therefore the sooner we get out the batter the world would be better off.
Are Americans really better off the military be better off why am I getting twice as much donations in the -- and again.
I hit six times as much from the military as all the other Republicans put together that ought to send a message to people why does the military support Ron Paul.
Because I have a sensible foreign policy and they're on the front line they're dying and they don't even know what they're dying for.
Heisman thank you Sarah and I hope we come back there's -- -- -- issues to talk about in this -- hoping to Baxter.
