We have an annual deficit of $1,500 billion. Does McCain think that is sustainable? Does he think he can reduce it by raising taxes? (That would require an increase of $15,000 per household each year.) Does he think there will be a consensus for cutting food stamps, unemployment, or social security when we are still spending as much on our military as every other nation on earth combined? McCain is a war monger who said it would be fine by him if we were in Iraq for 100 years. Rand Paul isn't as staunchly antiwar as his dad (unfortunately), but at least he recognizes that it is possible to spend too much on the military.
I thought getting "tax rebates" for your district through earmarks was supposed to be a good tactic, because they don't add to our total spending.
I guess Rand sees it differently, and I hope it doesn't become too divisive an issue for us.
...To the Devil, Huck. Go back to your CFR buddies and quit trying to co-opt the Tea Party!
Give us clear vision, that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.

Huckabee flat out lies when he says that he's often talked about how divided government is a good thing. I think we all remember how he felt about divided government during the 2008 debates. He only likes it when it's directed at Obama.
When we make a mistake, we make it as one nation...under God!
REP. PAUL: No! We've dug a hole for ourselves and we dug a hole for our party!
We're losing elections and we're going down next year if we don't change it, and it has all to do with foreign policy, and we have to wake up to this fact.
MR. HUCKABEE: Even if we lose elections, we should not lose our honor, and that is more important to the Republican Party.
REP. PAUL: We're losing -- we've lost over -- (cheers, applause) -- we have lost -- we have lost 5,000 Americans killed in -- we've lost over 5,000 Americans over there in Afghanistan and Iraq and plus the civilians killed. How many more do you want to lose? How long are we going to be there? How long -- what do we have to pay to save face? That's all we're doing is saving face. It's time we came home!
Was a powerful exchange, and Ron Paul hit a home run.

That sounds ridiculous in the news style interview.
Ron Paul's Convention Speech
Rand is gonna shake things up. Mild mannered and very serious. Our movement is lucky to have him. His no nonsense attitude cracks me up.
'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul
"Congressman, we are one nation. We can't be divided"
"I've often said myself that a divided government is not necessarily bad."
Typical politician hack. If tomorrow the world went nuts and decided killing babies was a good thing, then they'd claim they've been in the baby killing business for years and that no one loves killing babies more than they do.
If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.
The World is nuts. We have decided that killing babies is a good thing. We have killed about 50 million of them since Roe v. Wade, and thanks to Obamacare, Bush's expansion of Medicare, and the spineless Republicans who keep voting "yes" on Department of Health and Human Services bills, we are killing babies at taxpayers' expense.
And don't forget all the babies we've killed by bombing entire towns and villages in these senseless wars!
Trust me, I think WE all know Huckabee's true colors. Its like McCain saying he is non-interventionist...
I hope Rand's balanced budget amendment limits it to a certain percentage from debt. We have a balanced budget constitutional provision in our state, and we also have the highest debt-to-gdp ration in the nation.
Like the money supply, there need to be some restrictions passed limiting the amount of debt. I know, there would just be some "emergency" to get around this, but we have to think of some new methods and new penalties tried, at least.
there is no debt!!! End The FED as Dr. Ron Ernest Paul has said, and he even wrote a book on the subject. With gold coin in our pocket how can the government know what we have as an sovereign man under freedom and liberty? Christ has set us free, and we are free indeed, but only sovereign as our founding fathers entended under organic law. Repeal the socialistic 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Reduce the size of the government to boot!!! Enough said here on debt.
He who sells what isn't his'n, buys it back, or goes to prison!!!...-whzh-
He still wishes he was Dr. Paul! Huckabee sporting a Ron Paul tie :)

Nice interview..I agree with whoever said Huck is better as an entertainer. He is a puppet. He can talk a good game for whomever is the highest bidder. Hope it stays TV execs..
Okay, I must admit huckster made my skin crawl as a candidate. He isn't so bad as an entertainer-pundit. He was much more polite than Spitzer...more of an Oprah of conservative news than the other kind. It was a pretty nice interview.
Cool :-) Rand kept it simple and straight forward. Nice applause at the end for him too.
Real eyes realize real lies
We want our country back
Every year is a year for Ron Paul!
embedding this video?
I already put it on the front page
Go for it :-) Some here know how to set the timestamp for it's starting point and they could let you know about that. I don't know how to do that.
which starts right when Rand's interview starts. No timestamp necessary.
We'll leave it up to Michael to decide about and do.
He is asking that congress write new laws to prevent Dr. Ron Paul to run for President, or to use his leftover funds from the last election...
From the 'Top 10 Most Corrupt Politicians For 2007', to TV talk show host... How does this fair tax clown have any credibility?
Regarding Palin: I believe we are watching in real time the rise of the third party, which will be controlled by the powers that be from its' inception.
Next Scam: "Cash For Cash"
To me, the WORST thing about Huckabee is that as governor, he gave out college scholarships specifically to illegal immigrants! He said it was to help them assimilate to American society.
Or maybe to keep Rand from running for president!
Huckelberry also said we had to save face and stay in Iraq during the 2008 debates.
Only FOX would give him a job...GB must of made a pitch for him.
Look at these fox commentators omg.
Reilly, Hannity, Huck, GB, Geraldo, the weasel Smith, and the rest of the gang....
...It takes two like the Judge and Stoessel to make up for all these clowns and give fox the slightest tinge of credibility.
And what is the key point is that the Judge and Stoessel are not in Fox News, but in Fox Business which is not watched almost by anybody if compared to the Fox News.
