Ron Paul: America Is Not the King of the World





Transcript

Neil Cavuto: There are frequent calls for America’s military to start intervening, should it? Ron Paul, the former Republican Congressman and presidential candidate, says no, be careful, be very careful. Congressman, what do you think of this?

Ron Paul: I think it would be foolish, I think what we have been doing for so many years has been very foolish. I think that they ought to try to understand what blowback is all about and what the CIA has talked about and what Michael Scheuer has demonstrated so often in his work in the CIA. It’s just way too much, it hurts us to no end. One of the points I made when I gave my last little talk on the House floor, was that one of the trends that we’re probably facing was violent anti-Americanism, and it’s engulfing the world, and I think this is what’s happening over there. We have a mess in Egypt now, and we don’t know exactly what we’re supposed to be doing in Syria, and we end up supporting the bad guys. And even Hillary had an expression for it: “How did we know the bad guys were going to get these things?” And I think what’s happening in Mali right now with these hostages spun off from us getting involved in Libya and getting rid of Gaddafi. So one thing leads to another, and I just think that all these problems that we have make my case very clear, that we should have followed the Founders’ advice of staying out of entangling alliances and staying out of the internal affairs of other nations, mind our own business and save a dollar now and then, because we’re flat out broke.

Neil Cavuto: Well, the argument you get back, as you know, Congressman, is that we’ll regret that, because we essentially give the bad guys free run. Now the argument against what they were just claiming is that, well, terrorist are not idiots, they can pack up and leave. So if things get dicey for them in Afghanistan or Pakistan, apparently they move to Mali or Algeria or what have you. But they seem to be pretty good at movement. So I guess the bigger question is, should we do anything about that, or do we just let them brazenly grow unobstructed.

Ron Paul: Well, what we have to decide is why we have the problem. If we come down on the side that it’s spontaneous and they hate Americans, there’s Al-Qaida that kill us and they don’t like our prosperity and they don’t like our freedoms, maybe we should keep chasing them. But if the problem of these threats towards us and the disruptions is because we’re involved, then the answer is to be less involved.

Neil Cavuto: But what if it’s a little bit more than that, Congressman? I know you and I had a chat about this before; what if they really do hate us, they hate everything we stand for, and they really are all about … whatever our overtures towards the Muslim community are like, that they’re all about disgruntles, they just can’t stand us, they want us dead.

Ron Paul: Well, they might ask the same question, what if we didn’t hate Muslims? I mean, we have to build up a lot of hatred for us to go 6,000 miles away and kill people with drones, and this is where the conflict is coming. We have to beat the drums of war and this hatred that we have to go over and do these things. And then, all of a sudden, we have an epidemic of suicides of American soldiers who come back feeling, “What am I doing over here shooting these drone missiles, and little kids are dying and innocent people dying”. And now more people die from suicide, our soldiers are committing suicides. So I think it’s a failed policy, it doesn’t accomplish anything, and we don’t understand it. As long as we don’t want to look … we’re either in denial or we don’t want to understand it. But the CIA actually helps us on this to explain why there is retaliation, and if we don’t accept that, this is going to get much worse. And there are predictions that right now just because they haven’t hit us here at home, doesn’t mean that they’re starting to like us anymore. I think the problem is growing, it’s going to get a lot worse as long as we think we’re the king of the world.

Neil Cavuto: Ron Paul, thank you very much, I think.

    Dr Ron Paul: And none of that could be done without the cooperation of international groups, it is one world of nations, but international institutions have been there for several decades and it's just gotten worst. So something else is driving the 'problem'. And one major key in the dinamics of society is money, or economics.

    It erroneously limts the needed basics but amplifyes the wrongs, specially the worst.

    So, fix the economy problems and you will see the world's people fluorish, the same elite will become happier in the full sense of the human word. I don't think they are reptilians, but the metaphora has been earned because of the situation and the attempts to explain the oddities emmanating from some kind of subspecies. The classification of species is based on non reproductive interactions, a divide. In this case the metaphore applies to common good.

    Curios is the effect of phylosophy or ideas, economic or capitalism or socialis or other isms, on the actual population fitness.

    Either way, the resources needed are managed for bad and we have problems. Is kind of simple to theorize but very hard to apply. Those are the questions to answer.

    That is also why I see a wrong path taken in progression, or evolution, if that is what is going on.

  11. nohegelianeconomics

    Dr Ron Paul, I also think the question as to 'why there are so many problems' for US people is very important to answer (a reliable diagnostic yields a therapy that works for good).

    It is my guess that it is related to the world wide perceived association of politics and economics and elites running the show. With US being the seat of the tyranny, and by default the complicit US population. Over time that perception became a reality that needed to be 'tackeled'. It doesn't matter how much good US people could be doing in foreign lands, for locals, local politics and media will step in to do their dirty job.

    That's why I agree that one main problem is the redoing of the economic system into something better, and the improvement of policy to reeducate politicians or leaders.

    No to hegelians economics means no to creating problems so there can be an economic activity. The day that happens society will progress.
