Re: “Ron Paul’s Revolution Wasn’t Televised, But They Sold A Lot of Tickets For The Live Show

The author is not a reporter, but a typical press hack. If he'd spent just a little bit of time actually researching the issues or maybe reading a couple of Dr. Paul's books and maybe "Economics in One Lesson" by Hazlitt and "The Law" by Bastiat, maybe he'd start to have a clue.

The Interstate Highway System was authorized as a Defense project, genius. Programs supposedly 'authorized' under the "promote the general welfare" phrase, which if you read the document, would know was in the Preamble. It had nothing to do with enumerated powers, nowhere authorizing the government to produce Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, DOE, DEA, Prescription Drug, NCLB, FDA, AFDC, OSHA and on and on.... Nor did the document authorize any where, the EPA, ESA, NTSB, FAA, CDC, PHS, BATF, or the majority of the alphabet agencies of the federal government.

And if you understood anything about the free market you'd know that, by definition, there is no such thing as a free market using, monopoly-controlled, fiat currency with interest rates set irrespective of actual wealth creation and real economic supply/demand curves. All the Federal Reserve promotes is the current facist/corporatist, rent-seeking perversion of a supposed capitalism cum socialist-democratic failing system. Get a clue Josh, before writing your snide little expositions of ignorance.
