Hey Daily Paul - this is part 2 of my interview with Dr. Paul. He talks about the policy makers sick brains. He also discusses some foreign policy issues.
Kurt Wallace: As far as sanctions are concerned, you talk about the US financial isolationism with Russia, it includes pressure on European countries as well. How will this affect the United States and why do you think the U.S. policymakers are doing this?
Ron Paul: I think the policy makers, and that includes Republicans and Democrats, they like the idea of being the boss. I mean people who like to boss other people around like to go into politics so they can become the boss. Some literally believe, and they’ve told me personally, that the people are too stupid to take care of themselves. The liberals say they wouldn’t take care of themselves and that’s why we have to take care of them from cradle to grave. And conservatives say well we have to take care of them or they might smoke something they shouldn’t smoke and we have to teach them how to behave and to be socially acceptable.
So, they really believe in this stuff. And they enjoy doing it and they actually believe they’re doing good and that’s the worse part about it. And they always think it is that if people can’t take care of themselves we need people like me to go and make sure that they’re taken care of because they won’t save money and they won’t be responsible. So, I think we’re in the transition of that because governments have failed and they’re not going to be able to take care of the people...
