Ron Paul: Second Party Needed to Counter Republican and Democrat Warmongers


Speaking earlier this month with host John Stossel on Fox Business, former United States House of Representatives Member and presidential candidate Ron Paul said that Americans need a second party rather than a third party. Paul elaborates that the Republicans and Democrats in charge “work together all the time” as if they are in one party instead of two. Focusing on foreign policy, Paul points to the coalition of “hawkish Democrats and also neocon Republicans” in favor of war as an example of the effective one-party system.

In the interview, Paul also assesses that the Libertarian presidential ticket is not providing a compelling alternative to this one-party rule and that Libertarian vice-presidential nominee Bill Weld “is hardly a libertarian.”

Watch Paul’s complete interview here:



Paul, who was the 1988 Libertarian presidential nominee, presented a video address to the Libertarian National Convention last month in which he expresses some advice for spreading the libertarian message. Read about and watch Paul’s address to the convention here.
