Try arguing with any of this. Ron Paul in 2012!
"My biggest concern is personal liberty, and uh, I’ve noticed over the years that both Republicans and Democrats have very little respect for personal liberty. Therefore, I have been fighting this and I want government to be small. If government is big you have less personal liberty. You have to find out how they finance big government. They tax us a lot, but that’s not enough to pay the bills. They borrow a lot, but that’s not enough.
Then there’s another method, and it has to do with the FED. They have this little thing called the counterfeit machine. They just print the money when they need it. You and I would go to jail if we did that. But the fed does that in secrecy and they get away with it and the government just keeps growing.
And then, on top of that, they use this to finance these wars that I think are so ridiculous. You know, undeclared wars, endless wars, good wars, long wars, all kinds of wars with no end in sight. So I put a lot of blame on the FED because they monetize this debt. They literally take a bill and print the money."
