Lol... it's funny to listen to this... a politician that says the same thing now as he did 25 years ago.

Jesus Christmas. Watching this just made my head spin. WHO TALKS LIKE THIS ANYMORE? Among Presidential candidates, I mean. No one ever talks about the business cycle, or the Fed(before this election cycle), or monetary policy in general. Have you ever heard any of the GOPers reference an economist or a historian that wasn't somehow affiliated with Ronald Reagan? For them, history begins with the Founders in 1787, then 201 years pass and a bunch of shit may have happened and OH MY GOD there's Ronald Reagan! There is nothing in between.

Are you going to hear Rick Santorum reference von Mises or even fucking Adam Smith? Are you going to hear Mitt Romney share an anecdote about his epiphany from the first time he read Hazlitt while eating scrambled eggs with mother?

Ron Paul had more substance 25 years ago than all the GOPers running for President today currently do. It's indicative of the current political climate that someone so principled, so well read, so intelligent, so GOOD is rejected in favor of three wolves who whisper sweet nothings in your ear. This country doesn't deserve Ron Paul.
