I remember this from when I was tiny

it was the sole libertarian view I heard properly represented for decades, outside what I would have thought was a communist hippie advocating for their slate of druthers. It kept a little ember of truth burning through a very long neocon phase, where I felt like I was following that ideology because it was the opposer of them thar liberals, but gave me an understanding that there was something better yet.

I didn't even realize it was Ron Paul who'd said it until well after the 2008 campaign, when another supporter mentioned the show and the message and I put it together.

Defend Liberty!
