America is between a rock and a hard place.
Dr. Ron Paul has long been a leading voice for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, sound money, civil liberty, and non-interventionist foreign policies.
He is a Medical Doctor, by the way and far from toeing the Obama line of abortion/murdering unborn Americans as a way of ‘Hope & Change’, Dr Paul has delivered over 4000 new Americans into life. Just the sort of chap who deserves to be President. And he is a person welcome in our Free House.
His last term in the U.S. House of Representatives ended earlier this year, so the former Congressman dropped by the Pin & Balloon to let his us all in on his latest perspective on how successfully the national leadership is dealing with America’s economic challenges.
In Dr. Paul’s assessment, Washington is too committed to deficit spending and the debt-based economy – both operationally and philosophically – to expect it to embrace a more fiscally-responsible model without a forcing crisis (which he believes is coming):
"They believe it like a religion that spending is good no matter what the spending is on. And that the deficits don’t matter; deficits are not a burden. And even though we have this national debt and we have a foreign debt, they don’t consider that so bad, as long as people will spend money. And if the people won’t spend any money, the government has this moral obligation to do it.
