Bill Bennet

That looks like Bill Bennit in the video.

He sure dresses much nicer

now and has a better hairdo.

At least he said the guy was just a 'little' overweight.

Wow - Rand is the spitting image of the young Ron Paul....

too bad the similarity ends there....


just wait an see?

Your body doesn't belong to

Your body doesn't belong to you, it belongs to the state, that's why you can't smoke, do drugs, eat sugar, eat fat, refuse to work, fornicate, drive fast, drive without a seatbelt, marry a gay dude, own a firearm, etc., ad infinitum.

At least that's the Marxist view.

I am out of touch with most Americans precisely because I am not out of touch with reality.

Dirty Trombone ...

I like your style

i watched this about 20 times.

it makes me laugh every time.

I don't care

if the young man was offended. The Reagan youth were so obnoxious!

true but are we in this to "get pissed" at people or to...

...bring people closer to the truth?

Yeah But That's the Young Ron Paul

He insulted an obese man!

He would have made his point coming from a reference of love if was closer to these days.

That was a confused american who, in the video, seemed to care about america...so why insult him?

I guarantee that the 2010 Ron Paul would have reached out to the man with more love, and turned him towards the truth more than the "young" 80's version of RP.

Fun Friday 80's throwback none-the-less!

Haven't seen this in a while,

Haven't seen this in a while, got a good laugh out of it. Some may take it as a hurtful comment, but deep down Ron is making a good point about how the government shouldn't regulate personal habits such as eating unhealthy/being overweight.
