Champion of liberty and defender of freedom, former Congressman Dr. Ron Paul, went on FOX this week to speak on the current status of the smoke and mirrors being employed by the Trump admin in their hollow claims of repealing Obamacare. Staying true to his libertarian roots, Paul transcended the two-party shell of the show and used his time to make a powerful point — both parties are the same and it's time for a revolution.
Just prior to Ron Paul coming on to the show, the host had on Paul's son, Rand, who noted how hypocritical the Republican party is and how they all seemingly lied to their constituencies — promising them change, they knew they would never fight for.
After the retired doctor and Congressman agreed with his son, he went on to note that 'the system' is set up in such a way that makes it next to impossible to reverse government overreach. Very few people inside government, as Ron Paul explains, conduct their policy based on principles.
Surprisingly, the host chimed in and said that the term 'Republican principles' is increasingly becoming an oxymoron. However, the same goes for Democrats.
In Washington, the only part that 'wins' is war. Republicans are for big government, if with war. Democrats are for war, if with big government.
