I love how he begun by asking if she was pro-choice.

Not only what Rand said but to add to that Govt. very much curbs innovation
To say that govt. is intelligent enough to decide what the market should restrict itself on is a path where we will never evolve as a planet!

In addition to that govt. taking over protocols limits choice which limits competition which increases prices.
Less competition will of course increase prices, that goes without saying

While more competition will keep prices stable while increase jobs

Excellent and very quick responses from Rand!

Thank you for posting this video! I've been a huge fan of Ron Paul over the past few years and it's good to see his son following in the same direction.

I love how awkward the people behind him look to feel.

This is great though, I think I might like this guy.

Absolutely ! Let people paint toys with lead paint, let anyone sell any drug without testing, let people drive cars that aren't safe, let people have a choice. I mean why on earth should we all have to use energy efficient light bulbs and save on pollution. It's our planet and if we want to mess it up we will. And why the hell should we use toilets that use less water, so what if water is set to become as valuable as gasoline, it's our water if we want to flush it down the toilets we will. We might be selfish, short sighted and as stupid as a mule left out in the midday sun but it's our god given right to be stupid.

Give me strength
Deny stupidity

I'm completely pro-environment, and safety regulations, on this too. And I'm not going to engage in this specific debate without knowing more specifics on these laws. But he doesn't seem to be saying deregulation, he's saying he doesn't believe in how it's being done currently.

He's had toilets for 20 years that don't flush ! What a stupid man. He thinks America is about free choice? Even more stupid. America not only controls it's own citizens but also messes up the lives of millions, maybe even billions with it's annihilation of opposition and it's insatiable greed for cheap oil. He says that the government wants to get inside his house, pathetic rhetoric. Nobody wants to get inside his house, especially if his toilets haven't flushed properly for 20 years. What a moron. Trying to appeal to the unthinking masses who mistake real freedom for the illusory freedom offered by a consumerism that is destroying the planet. His dad got the brains, he got the stupid.
