TAYLOR: I don't know you very well, but I think I know you well enough to believe you have no desire to ever become President of the United States.Here's the source. It's been buzzing around the tubes lately. I'm not certain, but doubtful it's a fake, so I'll do some searching to try and confirm it. By the way, the interview is from just a year and a half ago.
CONGRESSMAN PAUL: That's for sure.
TAYLOR: Even so, many people who know you and revere your work would love to see that. But if you were President, what policies would you seek to implement to make America a freer, safer, fairer, and more prosperous place for its citizens?
CONGRESSMAN PAUL: It's the respect for liberty that is the problem. We don't have enough respect or understanding or confidence in liberty. That is the real problem. To cut back on government, you have to have the people understand the issue of liberty. So, my biggest goal has been in the area of education, as well as this little political effort I am involved in. But oh, I guess I would get rid of the Federal Reserve, get rid of the IRS, bring our troops home, and cut down to only about 20% of what we are spending on the military - those things would bring about a tremendous boom in this country, but it is just not going to happen.

Confirmation... A simple Google search reveals that there is indeed a recurring link between J. Taylor and his Gold and Technology Stocks newsletter, and his often interviewed subject: Ron Paul.
