Ron Paul Thinks the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations Is Running the World

Take a look at this video of a c-span interview with Ron Paul in which he gets a question from a caller on the "treasonous, Marxist, alcoholic dictators that pull the strings in our country," like the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations. Ron Paul pretty clearly agrees with the caller's assessment.

I have a lot of libertarian friends who really like Ron Paul and think he is helping popularize libertarian philosophy. But he isn't. He is exactly the kind of libertarian who gives libertarianism a bad name and makes people think of kooks and kranks. We need people like Hayek and Friedman to represent us, not whackjobs like Ron Paul who has never met a conspiracy theory he didn't like (don't forget he was also a truther at one point and still heavily associates with them. You know, those people that think the US government or the Israelis are behind 9/11 and not the 19 Saudi terrorists who actually did it). Hell, at this point Gary Johnson is preferable.
