Here are several links to recent (as in the last 3 days) interviews and a rally thrown in as well. Haven’t listened to them all yet, but here ya go:
First, a definition is in order:
Trust Fund: Government funds that are designated by law as trust funds (regardless of any other meaning of that term). Trust funds display the revenues, offsetting receipts or offsetting collections, and outlays that result from implementation of the law that designated the fund as a trust fund. The federal government has more than 200 trust funds. The largest and best known finance major benefit programs (including Social Security and Medicare) and infrastructure spending (the Highway and the Airport and Airway Trust Funds). [source]
Did you know that the Social Security Trust Fund is a misnomer?
If you have a spare 60 minutes or so, this speech is probably the best one yet by Ron Paul. He’s able to explain his positions in a clear and concise way without interruption. He then takes several questions.
He did ok, considering O’reilly’s penchant for interruption.
This article at Street.Com examines the Ron Paul and Mike Huckabee debate and gives evidence as to why Huckabee was just using demogoguery and Paul was just using facts.
This article demonstrates that Ron Paul sticks to his principles and backs them up with facts. If you were questioning Paul’s sincerity before, then reading this should leave no question.
This clip was left out of the previous post on Ron Paul’s moments from the debate. It is very important that this one is viewed along side the previous one.
This article dissects the Ron Paul vs. Huckabee portion of the debate. I was going to write on this subject, but that work has been done, and done better than I ever could have done it here.
Wow Ron Paul was under attack for his Iraq war position in this debate, naturally. He seemed rather irked and spoke back with sincere passion. See for yourself below.
This was posted on lewrockwell.com. It is a “what if” scenario. This could be what Ron Paul’s inaugural address may sound like.
It is worth the read because it is not just a heartfelt push, but rather it includes some interesting statistics on how big the federal government has grown in recent years.
