I don’t post much political stuff here, because usually politicians have absolutely no sense of humor whatsoever. But sometimes they can be so crazy that their statements become somewhat funny (as long as they don’t get elected!).
Here’s a video of presidential candidate Ron Paul talking to reporters, and he’s got some crazy ideas. According to him, by talking to people, “You can change the world within weeks.” But he would have to be President to be able to do that, naturally. (Also, it should be noted that many countries don’t want to be changed, so talking isn’t going to do much about that.) And one of his first actions would be to “bring the troops home from Iraq, give them motivation, start talking to each other”. And that would cause the price of oil to drop probably $20/barrel.
He goes on to say that “a true terrorist is a very weak person” and “they really don’t have an army”. So according to him, we shouldn’t fear them, because “nobody can touch us; we should feel perfectly safe from any country ever invading us, at least in the foreseeable future.” Why does that not make me feel safe?
Here’s the video, so you can hear all of his ramblings.
I’m hoping he gets nowhere near the position of President!
