Ron Paul

Oh, I probably shouldn't talk about political here. Oh well...
I'm learning what I value. So I may as well include what I'm learning, right? Here are a couple interesting clips I found.

This second clip is a little hard to hear. The beginning of the video is hard to make out because of the background noise, but the last half is a discussion of midwifery licensing. Some of his main points:

-licensing is a monopoly; it keeps other people from competing.
-licensing is better than prohibition, but the ideal is that people make up their own minds.
-I'm not in favor of government prohibiting people from making private choices. I might have a medical opinion, but politically people should make their own choices.
