Reddit, a news comment site, interviews the congressman, 2008 presidential candidate and doctor from the state of Texas, Ron Paul about the things reddit readers want to know.

Dr. Paul explains his answers in the light of liberty, Freedom and Property Rights. It is so enjoyable to listen to Dr. Ron Paul fully explaining his positions.

I am definitely of the opinion that those who surf the internet are far more informed then those who watch the Communist nightly news. Have you ever heard of Informed Citizens News? It is a broadcast that tells you news you will not hear nightly. This is the most recent broadcast I can find it covers Deficit Spending, Fascism in California, Home Schooling to name a few of the issues. From the broadcast... So far this year our government has taken in $1.7 Trillion Dollars but has spent more then $3 Trillion Dollars that is a $1.8 Trillion Dollar deficit in the first 9 months. What makes this a Perilous situation is that the tax receipts are down almost 20% from last year. Corporate income taxes are down 57% this is the largest percent since the last Great Depression. Our government has accumulated as much debt this year alone as we did during the first 210 years. Here are some news stories you should see on the nightly news but won't!

Rupert Murdoch has vowed to charge for all the online content of his newspapers and television news channels, going well beyond his prediction in May that the company would test pay models on one of its stronger papers within the year.
The comments by News Corp's chairman came as he predicted a "high single digit" rebound in the group's operating profits next year. The worst of the media sector slump might be behind the company, he said, as he reported "some good signs of life" in advertising.
Newspaper and television revenues would be down "very low double digits" next year, but growth in cable properties such as Fox News would leave advertising revenues flat and total revenue up 4 per cent.
News Corp put the seal on a brutal fiscal year with a fourth- quarter net loss of $203m (£119m), dragged down by $680m in impairment and restructuring charges at Fox Interactive Media, whose MySpace social networking s

Subject: Your Web site is complete garbage; your view of Obama puts you in the light of Bush croney (the true root and cause of this country's peril) Interesting. Bush, your favorite president judging from the lack of images of the insane coke user on your Web site, puts this country in the toilet and the one person qualified to take it out through bold moves gets your crap. But the truth is transparent.
