Ron Paul weighs in on drones, NSA and the Bush/Clinton political dynasty

Ron Paul, father of current Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul and himself a candidate in the 2008 and 2012 elections, speaks with the team from ‘Watching the Hawks’ about the major challenges in America today. Paul offers his thoughts on the power wielded by the Bush and Clinton families in DC, and why people want more than those two choices in 2016. He also comments on the economic crisis affecting the country today.

I’d love to have a video game where the average American could attack the political machines of the Bush and Clinton regimes, respectively. Thing is, both parties are the Fed Res’—not ours. Neither GOP nor Dems represent the people worth a damn. Put Jeb Bush’s head on top of Godzilla, put Hillary’s on top of Rodan, and then let the video gamer attack both monsters with the Japanese National Guard (or whatever passes for a National Guard in Japan—or just use American monsters, as long as they’re BIG).

Sad no one likes hearing the truth, they call people like this guy whacks, loons and so on.
But they enjoy the smooth talking that tell you what you want to hear on the political stage of actors that dress fine, who act like pop culture trends and people will vote for a person because they are popular, they sound good, everyone likes them, for the party, race, sex, my parents told me too, school told me too.
What a bunch of trend followers, this is insanity on a grand scale!

Most of our elected national politicians,both Democrat and Republican are criminals.  They are "bought and paid for" by special interests who are our oligarchy.  They vote to empower and enrich their owners, not the people.

America's missed opportunity POTUS Paul. Somewhere in an alternate universe America is enjoying the royal hell out of electing Ron Paul.The world has become stronger in their relations and things are looking good. Also the NWO has been rounded up, the TSA, NSA, and Homeland Security have been shut down.Hundreds of ex and current Senators and Congressman have been arrested as well as the entire Bush administration.The drone program was decommissioned , outlawed for war and so leaving almost two thousand children still alive and well as well as countless thousands of adults.There was no ISIS,no illegal wars in the… Read more »

They will never allow Ron Paul to be president, he´s over qualified, IQ is above the threshold, he´s not muslim, he´s not gay.  Too bad Ron, but thanks for keeping it real like Putin

Ron is half okay, but Ayn Rand Paul is an idiot.

RON PAUL IS ONLY POPULAR BECAUSE HE SUPPORTS WHITE PRIVILEGE, GUN RIGHTS, AND THE SOFT REAGANITE BULLSHIT HE SPINS IN THE OLD SCHOOL REPUBLICAN STYLE. THIS GUY WILL CREATE A "REVOLUTION" THAT MAY DISBAND THE CURRENT MONOPOLISTS IN POWER, BUT IN THE END…PAUL'S JUVENILE WORSHIP OF CAPITALISM WILL KEEP THE SYSTEM RUNNING FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF OLIGARCHS AND CORRUPT FINANCIERS. SEE HOW RAND PAUL IS DOING….HE'S ALREADY BEEN BOUGHT OFF AND SOLD. ALL RON PAUL DID WAS THREATEN THE ESTABLISHMENT, BUT THEY COMPENSATED HIM WELL BY GIVING HIS SON GREATER POWER IN THE SENATE.

RON PAUL IS A RIGHT WINGER THAT SUPPORTS PRIVATE CORPORATIONS. WHY? HE MUST BECAUSE HE PROVIDES NO REGULATORY BODY TO CONTROL THEIR POWER. AND AGAIN, WE HAVE TO HEAR THE LAISSEZ FAIR BULLSHIT OF SMITH'S THEORY…AND HILARIOUSLY, THE "HIDDEN HAND" THAT SMITH ESPOUSES WAS THAT OF GOD'S HAND, NOT FREE MARKET/PRICE DISCOVERY. THIS IS POLITICAL THEATER TO THROW A POLITICAL "BONE" TO SELF-RIGHTEOUS MILITANT AMERICANS THAT ARE PISSED OFF WITH THE SYSTEM.

He could be the greatest president ever. Not only USA but The whole world would benefit of his presidency. Unfortunately majority of Americans are too stupid to see that.

Ron Paul is one of the few real Constitutionalists ever to serve in Congress.
He's a rare example of a true Conservative who was surrounded by corrupt colleagues.

It's great to see a show where the hosts are polite and let the guest talk and finish their thoughts completely. Whether you agree with the guest or not, it's good to have a civil conversation and treat each other with respect.

Remember Love Canal, it was polluted by corporate profits. Our president is chosen behind closed doors by our oligarchs. Let us pray to God day and night without ceasing that Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush both have a massive stroke before 2016.

Speaking truth to power is a dangerious thing to do these days power to all that do.

Oh Ron Paul; if only you had been progressive on social programs, regulations, and healthcare. Then again you could never have competed financially with the major candidates unless you pledged to kiss as much corporate a$$ as they do.

Our Sons and Daughter are conscripted to protect the freedoms of the elite; which translates to slavery for the rest of us. #Drones is more about business than anything else. #Capitalism has no morality.
Capitalism will rape natural resources so long as it is profitable to do so. If there is no customers for their pillaging then the protocol will fail.
