Ron Paul: No Candidates Deserve Libertarian Vote
Libertarian icon and Former Texas Representative Dr. Ron Paul appeared on Fox Business channel Friday, heralding a message that neither Ted Cruz nor any Republican or Democrat candidate for president should win the libertarian vote.
That vote would have gone to Paul’s son, Rand Paul, who this week suspended his campaign seeking the Republican presidential nomination.
“You’re not going to find anyone in the Republican or the Democratic primary that even comes slightly close to ever being able to claim themselves a libertarian,” the senior Paul told Stuart Varney on Fox Business.
Varney asked if Paul even saw any “free market” candidates, to which Paul said, “I haven’t found ‘em.”
Paul opened up by slamming Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump: “He’s a business man, he’s for the free market,” then countering, “But he’s for tariffs and all these other things.”
