A few minutes with Mr. Paul

At the end of this eight-minute segment, host Tucker Carlson tells Ron Paul, "I hope you can come on regularly just for a tutorial on what it means to be free." I have some quibbles here and there, such as when Paul said he doesn't mind giving Continental Airlines his fingerprint to get on a plane because that's different from giving it to government. But the Paul candidacy is good for raising the profile of the idea that liberty is something government takes away, not something government protects and nourishes.

Paraphrasing, Paul says to refuse to be so afraid that you tolerate an abridgment of liberty. Nice to have someone out there saying that.
