Randam Ron Paulism

Tax revenues are up 59 percent since 1980. Because of our economic growth? No. During Carter’s four years, we had growth of 37.2 percent; Reagan’s five years have given us 30.7 percent. The new revenues are due to four giant Republican tax increases since 1981. All republicans rightly chastised Carter for his $38 billion deficit. But they ignore or even defend deficits of $220 billion, as government spending has grown 10.4 percent per year since Reagan took office, while the federal payroll has zoomed by a quarter of a million bureaucrats… big government has been legitimized in a way the Democrats never could have accomplished. It was tragic to listen to Ronald Reagan on the 1986 campaign trail bragging about his high spending on farm subsidies, welfare, warfare, etc… the IRS has grown bigger, richer, more powerful, and more arrogant. In the words of the founders of our country, our government has "sent hither swarms" of tax gatherers "to harass our people and eat out their substance." His officers jailed the innocent George Hansen, with the President refusing to pardon a great American whose only crime was to defend the Constitution. Reagan’s new tax "reform" gives even more power to the IRS. Far from making taxes fairer or simpler, it deceitfully raises more revenue for the government to waste… I want to totally disassociate myself from the policies that have given us unprecedented deficits, massive monetary inflation, indiscriminate military spending, an irrational and unconstitutional foreign policy, zooming foreign aid, the exaltation of international banking, and the attack on our personal liberties and privacy.”
  —Ron Paul

Jon Huntsman: Stephen Colbert, Will You Be My Running Mate? (VIDEO)

Former Utah administrator and Republican presidential claimant Jon Huntsman seemed on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” Monday night and asked horde Stephen Colbert — in Mandarin — to be his using mate.

Colbert took a ask in stride, observant that it lifted concerns since a fact that he has a SuperPAC prohibits him from “coordinating” with any presidential candidate.

Huntsman also discussed his time as Obama’s envoy to China and explained that his use to a Democratic administration shouldn’t lift any questions about his regressive credentials.

“When your boss asks we to mount adult and serve, quite during a time of fight and mercantile hardship, we do as told,” Huntsman said.

Colbert afterwards asked if he was implying that a United States was “at fight with China.”

“Based on this interview, we could finish adult here,” Huntsman replied.

Huntsman was also pulpy on a emanate of Mormonism, a faith he shares with opposition presidential claimant Mitt Romney. Huntsman pronounced it was generally a bad thought to plead sacrament during elections, though that Mormonism was apropos some-more mainstream, and that attempts to paint a religion as “a cult” were humiliating signs of a divided America.

At a finish of a interview, Colbert betrothed to give Huntsman his law “Colbert bump,” that he pronounced would lift a candidate’s anemic performance in primary polling.

“You might be during dual percent — we’re gonna get we adult to whole milk,” Colbert said.

Watch a whole talk above.
