In this exclusive interview, Dr. Paul says that: “When I bring up the subject of politicians taking away people’s personal freedoms when imposing low interest lates, they say “well, they don’t know how to take care of themselves”. They actually believe that, that they are ordained to take care of people.”
“I can recall asking two different chairmen of the Federal Reserve board, “what you’re doing with these low interest rates is that you are punishing the people who want to save money, work hard, take care of themselves in old age. They cannot even make 1 % on their money, when the interest rates should be 4/5 %.” They would say yes, and acknowledge that, but still say that is the price that we have to pay.”
“It’s like the Madeleine Albright famous quote from Iraq, when she was asked about the 500 000 Iraqi children dying from our sanctions and bombs and destroying their infrastructure, she said “that’s an acceptable price we have to pay for us doing our good deeds over there”. There is so much hypocrisy, they don’t have empathy for the people.”
“I think the only system of government that can show real empathy is a government and a people who recognize what personal liberty is all about. To allow people to have their liberties, to make their own mistakes, and allow to resume the responsibility and reap the rewards of the work they do. That system has proven to be the best system ever, and yet it is under attack systematically right now.”
