Ron Paul’s Opt-Out Offer: Pay 10% to Get the Government Off Your Back?




Ron Paul joined the discussion on “Stossel” to explain his “opt-out offer” to the American people, where individuals could choose to opt out and get the government off their backs for the rest of their lives by simply paying 10% of their incomes. Additional topics include criticism and misrepresentation of Ron Paul’s message, the problem of coercion, and various questions from the audience.

  2. Formerly called tithing, 10% was the amount people donated to charity and religious organizations.

    Best solution for medical care is to let anyone practice medicine without a license. It’s economic fascism to demand someone get a license to offer a service.

  3. Go Ron Paul you Rock! We would be so much healthier and better off and have less health problems if we localized everything with our state. That would lead to healthier people, less cancer and no hospital bills. I’m for it!

  8. Well honestly, the water and air are polluted and semi-toxic so I don’t know why you mention that. Second, he specificly says that this is only for things like national healthcare. You’re still paying the government, which would go towards roads and such

  10. Ha bisnatch. You got banned for being an ignorant troll

    Ron Paul makes everything better if you listen.
    The people who dislike what he says are those who don’t want a better life, better healthier nation, more freedom, national sovreignty and a more sound U.S. Dollar.

Lol that just shows how uneducated and dependent on the government we have become, have you ever heard of private loans kid? And then the lady asks won’t this create more bureaucracy?? Lol cutting spending creates more bureaucracy?? Lol geez people… Thank you Ron Paul for your sanity! We have all become crazy apparently
