‘Maybe we’re not doing so well running the world’ – Ron Paul

Former Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) tells Larry why he believes America’s foreign policies present a bigger danger to the US than North Korea and that a radical reconsideration of the United States role in global affairs is needed. Paul also discusses Obamacare and why he thinks it has destroyed the doctor-patient relationship.

The greatest threat to U.S. is U.S. itself. Stop killing people of other nations whose children will eventually declare wars on our children, and our children will never have peace.

Purple suspenders? Trendy, kinda. All the news casters are now wearing purple ties and lavender shirts. News people should stick to their red white and blue. Purple has no part in suits. leave it to the artists stick to your grey/blue suits.

Thomas Jefferson declared the American way of interacting with the world to be "Peace, Commerce and Honest Friendship with all nations – entangling alliances with none." However, over the course of at least the past seven decades, the United States Government has turned this admonition on its head. Peace? The United States Government has waged Wars of Choice almost constantly since the end of World War II. It has distributed Death and Destruction around the world for nearly 70 years straight in Overt Wars, Covert Wars, Coup D’états, Assassinations, Cold Wars, Drone Wars, etc. Commerce? Through Sanctions and Embargoes, the… Read more »

The Trump Putin meeting can be resolved in one image, the handshake, and make no mistake Putin on top and that Putin so affirmatively demonstrated his superiority via that hand shake, means Putin has not respect for Trump what so ever.
The hand over the top method, unless you are a coward, you force the person to turn their hand vertically or you wimp out.

one thing I like about Larry king is that he doesn't take sides, had Ron Paul had have bin having this interview on CNN,NBC,CBS,ABC,CNBC, or any other one of those useless propaganda peddlers they would have bin countering him with , really Russia doesn't worry you north Korea dosent pose a threat , Iran isn't a country to worry about . I've bin seeing this more n more lately。 the war drums are beating and there loud. I fore see a war like we haven't seen since ww2 In this administration. not cause I think trump is horrible but because… Read more »

You have always been wrong about healthcare Mr Paul. You can't just deny the people healthcare especially when there's NO full time employment, wages are nothing but slave wages in the U.S where people work 40 hours and still have to get food stamps etc to survive. Totally disagree with your attitude to this and your son is brainwashed the same to be a " stuff you Jack, I'm ok" if you can't provide for yourself and family Well tough luck. This is a terrible way to think.

Just stop the $58 billion extra Trump is throwing at the military industrial state and healthcare would be payed for all. Let the " free market" etc, there is NO free market system in the U.S, it's a fascist corporatocracy where the average person is reduced to pitiful lives whilst less than 1% make obscene amounts of money. The U.S could EASILY provide free education and healthcare for all Americans. All they have to do is stop the cash cow military industrial complex.

thats ridiculous mr Paul Yes we all have a right to health care, education , i would be happy to share what i earn in labor to help the well being of another human being we are all in this together , we all need to help each other , the pharmas are greedy take out all the corperations that think they are entitled to a peice of every crumb that is passed and they just sit on their asses with their hand out and take and take and take then act like its ok but the cops and military… Read more »

Maybe "we're" doing exactly what we want and it's going exactly according to plan. I know Ron Paul isn't an idiot — far from it. Most of what he says is spot on. Like most who want to retain some access in media and government, he refuses to call out the CIA for 9/11, but otherwise, he's one of the few who is willing to tell Americans who the enemy is and what they're doing. However, the implication in his assessment that US imperialistic foreign policy is failing is that it was intended to promote the interests of Americans. That's… Read more »

In a civilized society the sick should be able to receive care without losing everything. Canada, Norway, Germany, Finland, Denmark, South Korea etc. are doing very well Dr. Paul., The government should not run the cell phone industry but should not allow this massive profit in the hands of CEOs at the expense of the middle class and poor. A government option would force the greedy insurance companies to lower their prices because the profit is removed. So yes, cut the waste in wars and help the poor and sick.

the biggest threat to American safety is the human slave trade . Surprised at Ron Paul for not speaking of this, but he's a seasoned politician. He knows what is palatable and what is not.

Plainly stated: America is its own worst enemy, and creates its enemies. It can't even do right by its own people. How can it even think it can go elsewhere and impose itself upon others saying its way is the way.

Ron is right…again…the reason HC premiums are so high now is because the Insurance providers have lobbied away competition. If they were forced to compete offering lower premiums would become a necessity for them to stay in business.

Ron Paul may have some valid points on foreign policy, but his position on health care is just ignorant. The only balance to corporatism is single payer. Markets do not work for health issues, because, for the most part we have no choice when it comes illnesses and accidents.

America needs to enact Article 5 of the constitution and cut the Fed by 90%. The states should hold the power, Federal government is bought and sold and will eventually ruin this country and perhaps the world if we let it.

Were going to remain at war over natural resources. As long as the first thing Americans do is flick on a light or a tv when they walk into a room, go driving out of boredom, and travel for nothing more then sight seeing expeditions and experiences, as long as we continue running out every year to buy the latest electronics we don't need, we will continue to go to war for natural resources like oil, gas, poppy and lithium. We have an endless consumption for fossil fuels, endless energy and electricity demands, heating systems, refrigeration, air conditioning, the newest… Read more »
