Did Ron Paul misquote Herman Cain?

Submitted by Matt on Tue, 10/11/2011 - 22:38

In tonight's Republican Presidential Debate Herman Cain said Ron Paul misquoted him when questioning him on the Federal Reserve. Ron Paul then said that he'd supply him with the quote. After that, Cain told Ron Paul that you can't believe everything you see on the internet.

Well Cain...is this not you? And are you not saying almost exactly what Ron Paul said that you said?

Cain had taken issue when Ron Paul said that Cain had called supporters of Auditing the Fed ignorant, and that there was no need for an external audit.  It sure appears as though he did say exactly those things.

Davy Crockett says Mitt Romney is wrong on government charity

Submitted by Matt on Sat, 07/02/2011 - 02:48

Mitt Romney recently expressed support for a government program to try to help the long-term unemployed:

"...the very serious issue of people whose careers have been lost because industries are lost, is that in some respects the best way to help those folks is to, if you will, attach a bit of a bonus or a bounty to those who are unemployed for some period of time and let that money go to someone who actually hires them and puts them in a training program in their enterprise. I like people getting trained for actual jobs. And we did that in my state, we made it a $2,000 bonus that got attached to anyone who was unemployed for a year or more. That strikes me as an appropriate way to help get people back on their feet. I like helping individuals who’ve been out of work for a long time, whose industries have been decimated, and helping those folks get the skills they need to get better jobs is something that makes a lot of sense."

Bachmann vs Ron Paul on minimum wage laws

Submitted by Matt on Fri, 07/01/2011 - 01:27

Has Michele Bachmann turned lukewarm in her opposition to minimum wage laws?

Back in 2005, she apparently expressed strong opposition to them when she said: "If we took away the minimum wage... we could potentially wipe out unemployment because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level."

Her claim that unemployment could be wiped out is a bit over the top (see Milton Friedman's explanation below), but her overall opposition to minimum wage laws is commendable.

Should the Tea Party support Herman Cain?

Hermain Cain recently produced a music video for his campaign and in it he once again said "I was speaking at Tea Parties before it was cool":

Now that may be the case, he may have spoken at Tea Parties before it was "cool", but does that mean he should be the Tea Party's candidate of choice?  He may have a nice music video, and may say some good things, but if the Tea Party is serious about freedom, they must take a deep look at his pasts stances.

Does Mitt Romney really believe in freedom?

Submitted by Matt on Tue, 06/07/2011 - 01:22

Mitt Romney recently released a new video where he claims to defend economic freedom.  

He states: 

"And in the campaign to come, the American ideals of economic freedom and opportunity need a clear and unapologetic defense, and I intend to make it because I have lived it."

And then he also proclaims: "We stand for freedom and opportunity..."

Now, he may be better than some politicians, and may stand for economic freedom in some areas, but is he really the one to provide a clear and unapologetic defense of economic freedom?  Has he really lived it?
