Ron Paul on ‘Occupy’ protests: I’m all for going after crony capitalism

• RawStory

Texas Rep. Ron Paul (R) on Wednesday suggested he supported some aspects of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement — at least insofar as the protest was against “crony capitalism.”

When asked whether Texas Gov. Rick Perry was a crony capitalist during CNBC’s Republican presidential debate, he responded by saying that he did not have enough information to know if that accusation was true.

“But there is a lot of crony capitalism going on in this country, and that has to be distinguished from real capitalism.”
Mentioning the ongoing “Occupy Wall Street” protesters, he added “if you’re going after crony capitalism, I’m all for it.”
