Do you love the smell of libertarianism in the morning? If so, today is a good day for you.
Last week we solicited your questions for Congressman Ron Paul.
- A d v e r t i s e m e n t
There was such a big response (more than 400 comments) that we have split Paulâ€™s answers into two batches, the first of which is posted below.
Thanks to Paul for his answers and all of you for your good questions.
Q: What was your first thought when you found out McCain chose Palin as his running mate?
A: At first, I thought it was a pretty savvy choice from a political perspective. I also knew that she had said some nice things about me in the past. At the same time, I knew that to be on the ticket, she would have to toe the line on foreign policy and the war, so that tempered a lot of my enthusiasm.
Q: Who in Congress would you consider to be your closest peer(s)?
A: There are a lot of members who I work with on a variety of different issues. Walter Jones is a good friend and works with me on foreign policy. Often on spending, if there is a 432-3 vote, the other two congressmen voting with me are Jeff Flake and Paul Broun. A lot of times, I work with Democrats on civil liberties issues.
