- Planet Erstwild - Clyde Cleveland interviews Ron Paul

 
On Friday April 13th, guest host Clyde Cleveland interviewed Congressman Ron Paul of Texas (R) on Planet Erstwild.  Paul is running for president.  Clyde Cleveland ran for governor of Iowa as the Libertarian Party candidate in 2002. Reason Magazine interviewed Paul about his presidential bid earlier this year. Asked what issues he would emphasize, Paul responded:

"Everything I’ve talked about for twenty years! I think the biggest thing for Republican primary voters is that most Republicans are turned off right now. They’ve had a beating and are reassessing their values. They have to decide what they believe in. The Republican Party has become about big government conservatism, and Republicans need to hear the message they used to hear: that conservatives are supposed to be for small government."
