    And in the third world, who do you think the rich have close relations with? The government.

    For those of you trolling this video with nonsensical inane comments, you must be happy having been duped by mainstream media into voting how you did a few weeks ago. Well guess what video i was watching right before this one? That’s right, the escalating Gaza-Israeli conflict which will very soon push the US into an all-out Middle Eastern war, whether the American public likes it or not. As the US is busy bankrupting itself, the BRIC nations will be laughing themselves silly.

    I see. Well, that sounds even worse than a reduction of the size of the government. Transfer the power to the corporations? Have you really thought that through?

    Libertarianism is only to work after a large industrial base are is developed. A large economic framework enables competitive self interest to counteract and control itself. Libertarian ideals are best at work in Chile, which has incredible free markets, a limited government, a quickly growing economy, thriving middle class and slowly but surely dwindling debt. One cannot compare today to 100 years ago; today can only be compared to today.

    You are living in the notion of your own belief based on your own color. Politics of leadership should be taken and served of no color. Where in this speech you find racism? You are unknowingly a racist and it resides in your own system.

    Ron Paul, though a Republican, was the greatest voice of libertarianism. American Conservative Libertarianism, or American Libertarian Conservatism, will not go away. It will grow.
    Paul was attacked unfairly and maliciously in countless ways. In my part of the country, there were Anti-American extremists who were posing to be Ron Paul supporters. I feel they did much harm to the pro-freedom and pro-American message of Ron Paul.

    This speech is for the American people of all sides. I treasure this speech. I thanked the environment I had seen a man of leadership.

    Ron Paul is for the America of the constitution and our forefathers. If by “revolution” you mean a return to the constitution and a renaissance of liberty, then I agree. The term “revolution” was given a negative connotation by the communists and socialists in the Occupy Wall Street crowd.

    He is the closest you will get to an honest politician… If it were not for the general ignorance of the masses he could propose even stronger ideas and measures to get our system back on track. Either way he changed my life and I am eternally thankful for that. Thank you Dr. Ron Paul you are a father to all of us and a defender of Liberty.

    It reality,people DON’T behave that way, exclusively motivated by self or class interest.

    That means believing the worst in people and people are not innate bad any more than they are innately saintly or virtuous.

    Although, I do concede that “politicians” are not coterminous with “people” in this case, and the profession does attract sociopaths and psychopaths, we have hard data on that.

    Which is all the more reason to become involved and particpate, as opposed to separating from government.

    What you’re talking about is Game Theory, the basis for Cold War thinking and it’s been proven and demonstrated time and again to be an absolute load of crap

    It’s based on the premise that the only way to stay safe and protect yourself is by assuming the worst about the motives and intentions of others, even in the absence of better information and so shoot first, think later, kill or be killed

    John Nash, who created it, was a paranoid schizophrenic and Game Theory was a symptom of his illness

    Ron Paul, definitely understands human nature”

    No, he has a cynical and pessimistic VIEW of human nature, not an understanding of it.

    Is it human nature to default to immoral self-interest and f**k over everybody else just because you can?

    No. I don’t think it is. And I wouldn’t want to live in a world or a country where that’s true.

    “You think people become angles because they put on a suit and work in DC?”

    No, I think that they don’t become devils and automatically immoral.because of it.

    I respect ron paul for using the Republican Party to push a libertarian message. He saw 18 primary presidential debates, and he acted on that.Force is the key. How can I force anybody to do anything? Using force contradicts freedom. That’s Paul’s message. It’s an old philosophy. I thank him for that.

    The issues discussed extend the world over. uk is just as corrupt. It is time for the people who have knowledge to “walk the talk” as Mr Icke says.
