Ron Paul on Jon Stewart

Last night’s interview was entertaining. Stewart suggested that Ron Paul flip-flop for political gain. Of course, he was merely poking fun at the impressive consistency of Texas Congressman. Later Stewart had a more substantial debate on the political philosophy of free markets. Stewart argued that we can have an alternative between a free market society and socialism. Paul responded that every socialist program began with a seed and suddenly it grew out of proportion. He observed that it is better to suffer from the mistakes of one person than of the mistake of the Federal Government.

Overall, the interview went well. Paul did not convince Stewart, but Stewart’s gracious and irenic spirit allowed the conversation to flow.
