Fucking amazing Ron Paul video!

I've never seen a political ad that was a tear jerker before.

Hi, I'm English and don't know much about Ron Paul or what he stands for, so I watched your video to get an idea. I just wanted to know if you knew what his views on welfare are? He mentions at one point that the government should not have to look after a person from cradle to coffin, which is fair enough, but to what extent does he think people should be looked after by the government?

"to what extent does he think people should be looked after by the government?"

Not at all-"helping people" is something that is done voluntarily, not by force.

When you help someone through the federal government, it is done by force; something is stolen from one person and given to the other. (literally, at gunpoint-if you don’t pay taxes you’ll be arrested)

By the time the “pie” is given to the needy person; all the slices of a very inefficient pie have been doled out to countless middlemen along the way.

So that the end result is a whole hard earned "pie" is stolen from one person and the person in need receives a piece of crust; while the government grows in its power and control over us all.

The solution then is for help to be given by church, humanitarian groups and some help can be given at the state and local levels where there are far fewer slices handed out and where the “pie” distribution can be watched over by voters and hold accountable those doing the slicing.

And at that volunteer/church/humanitarian level a whole "pie" can just be handed over without force to whoever needs it.

If you saw some of what happened during the Katrina disaster; it was a perfect example. FEMA came in and actually managed to make a disaster area worse- by preventing volunteers from getting and bringing water, splitting up families and turning doctors away all because they weren't part of the government or officially under their control.

Compare that to the lifesaving effort of the Red Cross and the Salvation Army.

Believing in freedom involves believing in people; it can seem scary but not nearly as frightening as the alternative.
