Ron Paul Q & A - Austin, TX - May 19th

After a campaign fundraiser in Autin TX yesterday, Ron Paul took a couple questions from some of his supporters. Here is the video, along with a transcript immediately following:

Video Transcript:

Question #1: Is there a plan for a New World Order, a one world government, and how do we stop it?

Ron Paul: Well, I think, even the first President Bush said the New World Order was "in tune", and that's what they were working for. The UN (United Nations) is part of that government. They're working right now, very significantly, for a North American Union. That's why there's a lot of people in Washington who don't care too much about our borders. They have a philosophical belief that national sovereignty is not important. It's also the reason I have made very strong suggestions that we need not be in the United Nations for our national security.

Question #2: What do you think about our borders & immigration policy?

Ron Paul: Our borders have been totally neglected. We worry more about the borders between North and South Korea, and between Iraq and Syria, than we do about our own. Just recently a bunch of our border guards were picked up and sent, and enticed, to go over to Iraq! It's insane! We should have more border guards; and the only way you can afford it, and get the personnel, is bring our troops home. We don't even have the money to finance this world empire that we operate under. We have to borrow almost 3 billion dollars a day just to pay for the war, and our extravagance! And we borrow it from none other than China and Japan! We don't even have enough wealth to produce in this country to finance the amount of spending that we have. It will come to an end, and I think most Americans realize it. Middle class Americans, poor Americans, have already suffered the consequences; their standard of living has already started down. Those who are doing well know deep down in their heart know that their doing it on borrowed money, and that is going to come to an end. It's also the reason I'm emphasizing the importance of sound money. If you allow governments, any time throughout all of history, to print money, they always print too much and they destroy the economy. Our dollar is worth 4 cents of what it was when the Federal Reserve was created.
