This was a very interesting interview. I wouldn't say that Ron Paul "wiped the floor" with MSNBC. Maybe just that he wiped the floor with Joe
Scarborough (who admitted that the conversation was way over his head). A few of the panelists had very legitimate questions, specifically regarding
regulations, for Dr. Paul. While I agree with Paul that regulations are treating the symptoms and not the core problem itself, I think this is the
type of issue that can't be solved unless the symptoms are under control. We need regulations on all big business in order to keep them in check
while we do the work to restore balance to society. Then, once we have reached a higher overall standard of societal function, we can repeal
regulations. I think this is what some of the more intelligent panelists were getting at, particularly Dylan Ratigan, who has been a constant voice of
support for the common people in the wake of the financial crisis.
That being said, the most interesting thing about this clip is that it clearly generated discussion amongst MSM commentators that they aren't used to
talking about. And for that, I tip my hat to Ron Paul.
