He makes too much sense. So he will not get elected. The establishment have the people where they want them. @ their mercy.

How's that Kool-Aid?

There needs to actually be a happy medium. Corporations need a certain level of freedom to thrive and innovate. Governments needs the ability/power to ensure that that thriving and innovation don't come at the cost of it's people, the environment etc.

Unfortunately right now the problem isn't that governments have too many watchdog programs etc. The problem is that the corporations are running the government watchdog programs. When you have things like the head of the FDA being either former or future employees (or both) of huge food and/or pharmaceutical companies, the food & drug safety of the people gets pushed as a secondary concern to profits for those companies, which is what's happening now.

If you honestly think companies should be allowed even MORE freedom than that...you're very misguided.

NPO's are as well, but we'll pretend your tl;dr rant has some meaning to it.

I agree with him on the drugs piece, but most everything else he says is loony.

If you allow industries to regulate themselves, they will slash and burn everything there is for a buck today, leaving nothing for tomorrow. It is up to the government to ensure things are sustainable, fair, and safe because we know the industries won't do it themselves.

He would have one less person to get money from if he shot you in the head, metaphor or literal interpretation.. in either version you are horribly inconsistent and make little sense. 0/10.

Ok since you don't know what a metaphor is I'll just ask you a simple question.

Do these corporations knowingly do things that hurt their consumers and hide information that will inform them that they are doing just that, in order to make a bigger profit?

This 26 minute video clearly articulates exactly what is wrong with our government, and how it needs to be fixed. No bull whatsoever.

PLEASE find the time for this video people.

I don't need to watch this because I've actually paid attention to Paul for the last 8 years (his last 2 White House campaigns) plus over a decade of him as a House Rep. I can only wonder what Republicans thought they were gonna get with Romney or McCain.

I'd like to take this moment to remind any impressionable young liberals reading this thread of Ron Paul's highly objectionable economic policies, and the fact that he is above all a right-libertarian.
