Ron Paul: Africa's Famines Will End When They Quit Being So Socialist
Ron Paul! He knows what's wrong with Africa. All the famines, the people dying over there that you may have heard about in the news lately? It's because Africa is socialist. The whole place! RON PAUL, on Africa: "All I know is if you look at history and if you compare good medical care and you compare famine, the countries that are more socialistic have more famines. If you look at Africa, they don't have any free market systems and property rights and they have famines and no medical care." Elect Ron Paul President of Africa!
We'll go out on a limb and assume the good doctor is referring to something he half heard about "Somalia," one of those towns in Africa, and all of the deeply awful famines occurring across the "Horn of Africa," the county where Somalia is located. Somalia is not actually socialist, though, Ron Paul! Somalia is ruled under a system called "anarchy," one where there is no actual cohesive federal government or institutions or regulations or security, which is technically speaking the freest market system of them all. That's weird! Has Somalia realized they aren't following Ron Paul's rules? [Crooks and Liars]
