Ron Paul Interview By John Stossel

John Stossel: My interview with Ron Paul


What should government do?

Ron Paul: Protect our freedoms. Have a strong national defense. Look at and take care of our borders. Have a sound currency. That was the responsibility of the federal government, not to run our lives and run everything in the economy and extend the interstate-commerce clause and the general-welfare clause to do anything they want to do.


So government creates too many rules, and the wrong ones?

That's basically it. Most of the time well-intentioned -- but good intentions will not solve our problems.
