Ron Paul in 1988: Accuses George H. W. Bush, Oliver North, the CIA and Maybe the Democrats of Trafficking in Drugs (Update: Walks Out of CNN Interview Today)

Right here. Paul postulates that we have a war on drugs to make them more expensive, so the CIA can fund programs it can’t get Congress to fund. Seriously.


No evidence that he’s joking about any of it.

Update: Gloria Borger asked Paul about his old newsletters today. He didn’t take kindly to the questioning, and walked out.

As I wrote last time the newsletters came up four years ago, Ron Paul either knowingly allowed racist material to be published under his name, or he failed to properly manage a newsletter. Now he wants the job of managing the executive branch of the US government. Either way, the newsletter business is a disqualifier.
