Interview with Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX)

An excerpt:

Ron Paul is not your typical Republican. The Libertarian Party’s presidential nominee in 1988, he believes in limited government and a "live and let live" social policy. He voted against going to war in Iraq back in 2002, and he strongly opposes any military action against Iran. In fact, Paul’s considered to be the most consistent antiwar member of Congress. Though that position may be out of step with today's Republican Party, Paul has enjoyed enormous success online. In the following conversation, Paul talks about his campaign, the issues he’s focused on, and the fallout from his exchange in the South Carolina Republican debate with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani over the role United States foreign policy may have played in providing motivation for the attacks of 9/11.

    A quick, yet kind-hearted move to liberty? If anybody can do it, Ron Paul can.

    "CD: So can we look forward to a Paul-Kucinich 2008 ticket?" This question was one that I was thinking of as well, this would be a wonderful idea! I don't believe that political parties are as separate as they used to be, most politicians have similar agendas; like Paul and Kucinich. Why should belonging to a certain party deny them the ability to run as a team? We are supposed to be the 'one nation under God' and a not divided nation. The notion that we have a choice of politically opposing parties has become rediculous really, politicians follow money or what will benefit them and their careers, there isn't party loyalty anymore. Thank you for posting that interview. Ron Paul is on the Colbert show this evening 13Jun07, I will be watching.

    Thanks, Charles, for your interview with Ron Paul last month. Sorry I didn't see it sooner, but you seemed very fair and allowed him to explain himself well. The talk of Kucinich and RP are a bit farfetched, since Kucinich is a borderline socialist, but it just adds more to RP's prestige that he is willing to break ranks to vote on something based on principle.

    Peace be with you.
