Can't tell the oddest thing -- I just thinking about this the second thing to get things done on the shelf more than any other guests have been Newt Gingrich and Gary Johnson.
-- -- -- -- -- -- There's nothing on Larry Johnson -- isn't weird for me and Gary Johnson's Libertarian Party candidate for president.
You've been getting a lot of Presley the New York Times you yeah yeah all over the place saying it probably -- the -- -- It is -- thank you news czar czars are there is always a pleasure to see him out through what is the latest in your campaign.
I mean you're not in the debates and he wanted to be that was the thing if you could just get on the same platform yes -- candidate well.
So sort where filing suits have been done it doesn't look like that's gonna happen but you know keep keep plugging away I -- I'm -- making the case that I'm and -- truth -- and all this and it's great to play the truth currently you can go after both candidate which you do yeah -- and you don't believe there's much difference between -- that divide between nowhere either by and between Obama and and run well -- offer up the bold prediction here that either one of them get elected we're gonna find ourselves -- -- heightened police states we're gonna find ourselves and a continued state of war military interventions.
And we're gonna continue to borrow and spend money that is in a way that's just absolutely not just Obama getting is -- got a set of -- getting us out of Afghanistan isn't the one who's ending Linden and well and then you look at -- look at Syria right now with -- military interventions in Syria and so you know our our money's going to jihadist I mean that was that was in the New York Times today you know come on our military interventions have unintended consequences.
And those unintended consequences.
I'm -- maintain and have us with hundreds of millions of enemies of this country that but for those military interventions wouldn't -- how frustrated are you the first you're seeking the Republican nomination.
They didn't you think you made -- to two debates.
They kind of -- you out of that.
Now you've got Republicans certain states and keep up the ballot but you're on the ballot in 48 states but they've been fighting you every step for the way.
And now you can't get in those debates how frustrated -- just really not at all hugged and the notion that where is where is the voice for liberty and freedom and it was going to be another libertarian nominee for president and you know what I saw an opportunity to be that voice and here I am and I'm trying to make the most out of it so.
And really not on the frustrated and -- -- -- I'm on the side of this that these -- things -- really do need to be sent to you by the concern on the right that you -- their version of Ralph -- in this particular continent -- it's it sounds terrific but -- reality is they've actually put that to the test in five different states only five states where they actually put it to the test and in New Mexico Colorado.
And Nevada I take more votes away from Obama.
North Carolina Michigan -- -- more votes away from -- I think you're really -- -- what determines and -- in -- state with -- you'd taken more votes away from one candidate -- -- -- I guess is -- states emphasis on whether it's the social -- dollars and -- side bag -- on maintaining -- -- Romney when it comes -- dollars and -- tonight -- Obama when it comes to civil -- is it though the -- the the -- under any -- here's -- that the Republicans are the ones have been.
Act yeah I don't -- -- -- -- know they've really inactive trying to keep us off the ballots and or religious blatantly right.
You know in in Pennsylvania we had to submit 20000.
Names to be on the ballot we submitted 49000.
Say they -- -- challenge that will we have to have twenty volunteers there every day for a month.
-- they 120 dark suited lawyers and I wanna guess we're getting paid we were getting paid and we did prevail in all of that.
Let let's -- would you give a great interview to salon which -- came in on Saturday.
You -- would not hear the your -- I think there's a regression.
You know on the station what might we hear -- if you work on that stage well anyway -- and what we hear was let's not bomb Iran let's get out of Afghanistan nine and bring troops home tomorrow.
I think that marriage equality is a constitutionally guaranteed right let's and the drug wars legalize marijuana.
I would have never signed the Patriot -- I would have never signed the national defense authorization act let's balance the federal budget now.
Eliminate income tax corporate tax abolishing -- replace all that with -- one federal consumption tax the fair tax.
Strong US dollar not weak US dollar.
And an accurate really the -- if your plan that when you flash does article I just -- the states handle health care you'd give it back -- -- and and -- that's that's you and a balancing the budget is is the federal government needs to get out of the health care business completely when you talk about ending Medicare that that's gonna scare -- not ending Medicare just again getting in the beginning and in the bounds of not exceeding the revenues that we -- -- and look Medicare is a benefit to you when -- pay thirty dollars in two and get a hundred dollar benefit.
By extension we pay 30000 and we get a 100000 back.
That's not sustainable -- by an hey you -- you cover people than for how -- do you take care of the people who don't have health care and -- going forward with the increasing -- stable health care system that the so I oversaw the reform of Medicaid in New Mexico when I was governor we took it from a fee for service model to a managed care model.
We set a better health care networks and we saved hundreds of millions of dollars.
I maintain that if the federal government would have block -- the state of New Mexico 43% less money.
Let me draw new lines on how we it would administer healthcare -- the pork that I could have done that.
I think you plot apply that same template to Medicare.
Health care for those over 65 that we can in fact provide a safety net health care safety net for the poor and those over 65 but if we don't.
I'm maintaining we're gonna find ourselves in a monetary collapse how do you provide health care -- who do you pay for.
Where does the money come from to pay for the health care to -- aluminum.
Well in this case in this case Medicare Medicaid.
Am I am advocating the fair tax so the fair tax there were no longer be any more deduction from your payroll check.
Nor whether -- be employer matches for.
Medicare Social Security.
Unemployment all those proceeds would come out of the proceeds of the fair to failure let's say -- make him a 100000 dollars -- here you get a 100000 dollars a year.
-- you get a 100000 dollars a year -- Social Security you know like an analyst all that would like to say every time you paid the one federal consumption tax would you be -- 23% tax on what you purchase that would go into the pool that.
All of that would come out of now it ends up being cost neutral over a very short amount of time because if you use a can of Coca as an example.
A can -- -- today that sells for a buck has.
Non transparent taxes and it.
You take that away -- gonna sell that canticle for eighty cents an aids and Rocco could say I'm I'm we cancel a pretty sentry -- expect.
If we hiking interest think that I when he leaves it at least when it comes to -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Will charge a dollar -- against the law -- mean that there are laws against that needs to be breaking laws.
I just think that the criticism a fair market really is never criticism of fair market -- a criticism of crony capitalism that is alive and well in this country you can is president.
We have a magic wand and say I'm gonna make all the changes eliminate the -- that we are monitoring -- -- -- exactly day.
Option would -- and and look at the problems -- -- working with in the two party system.
He be working against -- also imagine a libertarian president challenging Democrats on what they're supposed to be good let's not bomb Iran let's get out of Afghanistan.
Let's bring about marriage equality let's and the drug wars repeal the Patriot Act stuff -- supposed to be good up.
And then how about the libertarian president saying veto this Republican budget people.
Because -- spent way too much money and we need to balance the federal budget now or we're gonna find ourselves.
In a monetary club you do across the board 43% -- Well nothing is across the board put some things I'd like to abolish completely the only thing that I see.
I think you know that I pledge that I wouldn't cut a penny from would be veterans benefits I mean these are obligations of veterans.
And we have those obligations.
