Excellent vids, thanks.
I think Dr Paul is the best hope for the USA. Although I don't live in the USA, if we had a candidate from ANY party here in Canada preaching the
same thing they'd get my vote in a second, and I would be happy to work for their campaign.
I loved the parts when he talked about immigration and flooding. "Don't subsidize it, you only encourage more of it", very, very true. If illegal
immigrants weren't housed, schooled, and welfared by the state, even when they KNOW they're illegals, they wouldn't stay. Would you stay somewhere
if you weren't able to feed yourself and your kids or get education or health care? No, of course not. The reason that illegals come to the USA is
that they know that they can get all of that laid on for them, which they don't get at home. Time for it to end.
Also agreed with him that it's time to end many Government agencies, departments, and subsidies. Farm subsidies are a joke - the reason food prices
have gone up is that the Government subsidized farmers to grow corn for Ethanol fuel and High Fructose Corn Syrup, meaning there is less arable land
available for regular food crops. Therefore, supply can't keep up with demand, ergo, food prices increase. Stop the subsidies, more land will be
put back to arable land for regular food crops, more produce is grown, prices will drop. Prices of High Fructose Corn Syrup will increase as less
land is made available for corn, hence prices of junk food will increase to compensate. Higher junk food prices will lead to less people buying it,
and people will end up healthier. Fresh produce will cost less because more of it would be grown. Simple economics 101.
Loved his take on getting the Government out of every day life. Everyday citizens did just fine before the 1950's when this all started. It's time
to go back to being self sufficient, less reliant on government handouts and the welfare state, and back to a time when you would help your neighbor
if they were having trouble, and a time when we actually KNEW our neighbors, and TALKED to them.
Get Government out of every day life, make the average citizen take way more personal responsibility for their actions and their consequences.
Dr. Paul, you would have my vote if I was an American citizen.
