There's a ton of fallacies

There's a ton of fallacies and misconceptions, really too many to go over. But Dr. Paul is by no means a fanatical devotee of Ayn Rand. His big libertarian influences are von Mises, Rothbard, Hayek, Bastiat, etc. A lot of people seem to equate Ayn Rand with libertarianism, and it's really ignorant and stupid. Also, Jesus never said anything about the government "helping" the poor, he was talking about what people should do in their own lives, and as a doctor, he helped the poor through free care far more than this self-righteous guy did in his life.
