>>Tucker: FOR WELL MORE THAN A CENTURY, PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY HAVE MADE THE CASE FOR SOCIALISM BUT THAT SEED HAS NEVER REALLY SPROUTED AND TAKEN ROOT BUT THAT’S CHANGING. YOUNG AMERICANS APPEAR TO BE, EVERY POLL SHOWS, SOURING ON OUR ECONOMIC SYSTEM, CAPITALISM. ILHAN OMAR AND THE DISPUTE 11 SET THE AGENDA. YOU CAN SEE IT EVERY DAY. HE IS ONE EXAMPLE. ON ABC RECENTLY, SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS BLASTED HIS RIVAL LIST ELIZABETH WARREN WITH THE WORST INSULT HE COULD THINK OF.>>THERE ARE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ELIZABETH AND MYSELF. ELIZABETH IS A CAPITALIST. I’M NOT. AND THE REASON I AM NOT IS BECAUSE I WILL NOT TOLERATE FOR ONE SECOND THE KIND OF GREED AND CORRUPTION AND INCOME AND WEALTH AND INEQUALITY AND SO MUCH SUFFERING THAT IS GOING ON IN THIS COUNTRY TODAY WHICH IS UNNECESSARY.>>Tucker: AND OTHER DIFFERENCES, HE MIGHT BE ACTUALLY EVEN MORE SELF-IMPORTANT THAN SHE HAS. WE WILL LET YOU DECIDE. IN ANY CASE, AND 2019, THAT’S A REAL ATTACK ON THE LEFT. MY OPPONENT IS A CAPITALIST! WHATEVER THEY CHOOSE TO CALL IT, THE DEMOCRATIC BASE IS DEMANDING SOCIALIST POLICIES AND INCREASINGLY, THE CANDIDATES ARE HAPPY TO OBLIGE.>>WILL TELL YOU WHAT I BELIEVE IN TERMS OF DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM. I AGREE WITH WHAT GOES ON IN CANADA AND IN SCANDINAVIA, GUARANTEEING HEALTH CARE TO ALL PEOPLE AS A HUMAN RIGHT.>>I THINK UNDOCUMENTED PEOPLE NEED TO HAVE A MEANS BY WHICH THEY ARE COVERED WHEN THEY’RE SICK.>>RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOUR GOVERNMENT PLAN WOULDN’T PROVIDE COVERAGE FOR UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>Tucker: SOCIALISM WITH OPEN BORDERS! THAT’S THE TREND. SENATOR RAND PAUL OF KENTUCKY IS FIGHTING IT. HE HAS A BRAND-NEW BOOK OUT CALLED A CASE AGAINST SOCIALISM. HE JOINS US TONIGHT. SENATOR, THANKS SO MUCH FOR COMING ON. CONGRATS ON THE BOOK BY THE WAY. I THINK YOUR BOOK TO HER IS PROBABLY A VERY INTERESTING WINDOW WITH WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW. MY DEEPER QUESTION IS, WHY ARE WE THERE? MOST ECONOMIC INDICATORS SEEM POSITIVE READ WHY ARE WE EMBRACING SOCIALISM?>>WHEN I WAS AGAIN, WE WOULD SAY WILL THAT LIBERAL IS PROBABLY SOCIALIST BUT THEY WOULD NEVER ADMIT TO IT. I HOPE HAVE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY ARE RUNNING ON THE LABEL OF BEING A DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST. I THINK SOME OF THE DAYS THAT THEY HAVE FORGOTTEN THEIR HISTORY. AND PART OF THE BOOK WE TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT HITLER WAS A SOCIALIST, STALIN WAS A SOCIALIST, AND ABOUT 100 MILLION PEOPLE DIED IN THE LAST CENTURY PRIMARILY FROM AND FAMINE AND PRIMARILY FROM THE COLLECTIVISM AND SOCIALISM, BUT THEY SEEM TO HAVE FORGOTTEN IT. THEN I WENT TO THE FACT THAT THEY’LL SAY WELL, WE WERE FOR CASTRO BUT NOT SO MUCH FOR JOBS IS BUT WHAT WE ARE REALLY FOR A SCANDINAVIAN SOCIALISM. SO WE SPENT A LOT OF THE BOOK DESCRIBING THE FACT THAT SCANDINAVIA FIRST IS NOT SOCIALIST, BUT WE ALSO REPORT THAT BERNIE IS ACTUALLY TOO MUCH OF A SOCIALIST TO EVEN GET ELECTED IN DENMARK. THE PRIME MINISTER OF DENMARK SAID BERNIE, QUIT CALLING A SOCIALIST, WE ARE NOT SOCIALIST, WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS, AND YOU ARE RUINING OUR BUSINESS BY TELLING THE WORLD WE ARE SOCIALIST WHEN WERE NOT.>>Tucker: THE SOCIALISM OF NORWAY IS BASED ON OIL DEPOSITS. SO WHAT’S INTERESTING THOUGH IS THAT CONSERVATIVES OFTEN SAY SOCIALISM MAKES PEOPLE MORE POOR BUT THE PEOPLE WHO RUN SOCIALIST SYSTEMS ALWAYS WIND UP VERY RICH, I’VE NOTICED.>>WE MAKE THAT POINT IN A BOOK THAT THERE’S ALWAYS THE TOP 1%. IN OUR COUNTRY, IT’S LARGELY BASED ON MERIT, AND SOCIALISM, IT’S LARGELY LARGELY BASED ON WHO YOU KNOW. WHETHER YOU ARE WEALTHY, CAN HAVE PLENTY TO EAT, FOR EXAMPLE, IN VENEZUELA, THE AVERAGE PERSON IS LOST 20 POUNDS OVER THE LAST YEAR. MAJURO HAS GAINED ABOUT 50 POUNDS IN THE LAST COUPLE YEARS. SO MAJURO IS GETTING BIGGER AND BIGGER. HE CAN EVEN FIT INTO HIS CLOTHES. HE SO FAT, HIS GENERALS ARE FAT, THEY ARE ALL WELL THOUGHT, BUT THE AVERAGE PERSON HAS LOST 20 POUNDS. THAT’S A STATEMENT OF WHAT THE AVERAGE LIFE IS LIKE FOR SOMEONE AND SOCIALISM.>>Tucker: SO IF INEQUALITY BECOMES SO PROFOUND IT CAUSES INSTABILITY IN YOUR SOCIETY, BUT SOCIALISM IS NOT THE CURE FOR THAT.>>RIGHT. AND ACTUALLY LOOK AT INEQUALITY ALSO AND IT FINDS THAT THE STUDIES ARE TRUE. IF YOU LOOK AT INCOME INEQUALITY IN DEVELOPED NATIONS, INCOME INEQUALITY IS ACTUALLY PROMOTIONAL TO ECONOMIC GROWTH. IT DOESN’T SLOW DOWN ECONOMIC GROWTH AT ALL, AND REALLY WHAT WE SHOULD BE CONCERNED ABOUT, IN WHICH SOCIETY WOULD YOU RATHER LIVE IN? WHERE THE AVERAGE PERSON MAKES $30,000 A YEAR — IT REALLY SHOULDN’T MATTER WHAT A RICH PERSON MAKES. YOU REALLY WANT THE AVERAGE THAT THE POOR FOLKS MAKE TO BE INCREASING, AND THAT’S WHAT’S HAPPENING RIGHT NOW.>>Tucker: RIGHT. SO WOULD I HAVE TO ASK YOU ABOUT THE SYRIAN QUESTION SINCE YOU ARE ONE OF THE VERY FEW ELECTED OFFICIALS IN WASHINGTON WHO APPEARS TO BE AT LEAST SYMPATHETIC FOR THE PRESIDENT’S POSITION. WHY HAS THE RESPONSE BEEN BIPARTISAN IN OUTRAGE ALMOST UNIVERSALLY HERE?>>IT SORT OF ONE OF THOSE STRANGE COMPROMISES IN WASHINGTON. THEY ALL SEEM TO BE IN FAVOR OF CONTINUED INTERVENTION EVERYWHERE. THEY NEVER BELIEVE YOU CAN COME HOME. WHEN PRESIDENT TRUMP TALKED ABOUT COMING HOME FROM AFGHANISTAN, IT WAS LIKE 19 YEARS AND IT’S PRECIPITOUS TO COME HOME? REALLY IT’S APPALLING BUT THERE SEEMS TO BE ALMOST NO ONE LOOKING AT THE SITUATION. I WILL TELL YOU ONE EXTRAORDINARY THING. FOR MONTHS HAVE BEEN SAYING THE BEST CHANCE THE SYRIAN KURDS HAVE IS ACTUALLY MAKING AN ALLIANCE WITH ASSAD TO PROTECT THEM AGAINST THE KURDS. THAT’S ALREADY HAPPENING. AS WE SPEAK, THEY ARE BEGINNING TO HAVE AN ALLIANCE. THE BEST CHANCE OF HAVING SOME AUTONOMOUS ZONE IS BEING PART OF SYRIA AND REASSURING TURKEY THAT THEY ARE NOT GOING TO BE MAKING INVASIONS INTO TURKEY. THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED INTO IRAQ. THEY ARE WITHIN THE GOVERNMENT OF IRAQ AND THEY HAVE THE A SURETY THAT THEY AREN’T GOING TO INVADE INTO TURKEY. INTERESTINGLY, THERE ARE 1800 TURKISH BUSINESSES IN KURDISTAN, THE KURDISH AREA OF IRAQ NOW, THAT ARE ACTUALLY GETTING ALONG WELL. THAT COULD HAPPEN IN SYRIA TOO. WE PREVENTED IT THOUGH BECAUSE WE ARE SAYING YOU CAN’T TALK TO ASSAD BUT REALLY, YOU PROBABLY DO EVENTUALLY HAVE TO TALK TO

100 thoughts on “Sen. Rand Paul on the dangers of socialism in America”

  1. Further, these countries are quite small. Sweden is the big boy in the neighborhood, at around 11 million, I think Denmark has around 8 million, largely homogeneous and cooperative people. We have 3 cities in the USA that are larger than the entire population of Sweden.

  2. My only point of contention. I believe if we cannot generate enough excess as a society to take medical care of our citizens….without burdening them further…we have failed. Medical should be a right.

  3. We do not have capitalism any more. It can not even be called crony capitalism. Crazy money printers from Fed destroyed our economy and democracy for good.

  4. Lol. Bernie has a 2 million dollar home and made millions off a book. Seems like he is very pro capitalism, or maybe he wants to ditch it now, after he has used capitalism to get rich?

  5. will bernie pay out all of his millions when he becomes president. will he give his wage to charities like trump…..

  6. My bullets wont care if your a commie or a socialist, THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT PROTECTING OUR CONSTITUTION! PERIOD MUDDAFUQQAS!!!

  7. the people who run capitalist companies end up really rich like unimaginably rich like they can go to the hospital and not go in dept because they broke their leg getting off their private jet and cant go to work because they cant walk

  8. If I understand this, it is better to pay a health care provider who takes our premiums every year, and if we don't get sick, they use our premiums to pay for people that do get sick, charge a deductible, charge a co-pay, charge extra for pre-existing conditions and try desperately to make a profit? That's better than paying a tax that is less than the average American's premium and requires no deductible, co-pay, or pre-existing condition fee, is good anywhere in the US regardless of where we work and does not try to make a profit. How's that work?

  9. If people are ignorant enough and poor enough, socialism will sound like a good idea. Isn't that the direction we are going?
    Our Constitution, with its individual liberties is the main obstacle for the global elite controlling and enslaving the world.
    Gun rights, free speech, and religious liberties are being picked apart. Hilary and Obama have suggested scraping the whole thing.
    This is why a billionaire would leave his happy life and go through hell for a dollar a year. Thank you sir. Trump 2020

  10. America will never be "socialist", so what are you talking about? please don't compare Venezuela with a capitalistic system that cares for his citizens… that's what America should be…

  11. the democrats do not know anything about socialism and they can't not live in a socialism country so how they can side to this no sense? sound stupid just ask to people who lived in a socialist country and you will see what it is and why they are here .

  12. yes yes socialism is scary.
    guess what has already been socialized in this country.
    US version (socialism) …… capitalism version

    Military …………………………. mercenaries
    police …………………………… private security
    border security ……………… private security
    roads ……………………………. toll roads
    emergency services ………. some horrible mutant version of insurance maybe

  13. If you want to know, what's happened to your country and to the rest of the West, you ought to watch one of Yuri Bezmenov videos.

  14. O bernie I got wealth inequality , I'm poor n white. Your rich n white you should donate some of your money you made from capitalism

  15. No matter how many times and by whom, socialism is shown to be bad, what he majority of ordinary people don't understand is the present day elites will always be the elites; they will remain in power and will continue to take your money and the fruits of your labor. The "common man" will forever remain a slave to those in power. There is no escape.

  16. Rand Paul is a socialist. When your tax dollars pay for public schools and the Fire Department, you are a Socialist.

  17. any candidate that tries to say socialism is bad aint saying it when they collect their socialist paycheck, work in buildings paid for by socialism, get their healthcare paid for by socialism..with the biggest socialist financed military in the world..our public schools, police, fire, city lighting, public trash pick up..ALL THINGS PAID FOR BY OUR TAXES to benefit society and not just the 1% is SOCIALISM

  18. Bernie said he will never be a capitalist , that's for sure ! a Socialist whole Point of View " a Job its just too much work !

  19. Weird that people here are against "Socialism" but have no problem with real socialism in form of Subsidies and Tax cuts for For Profit Companies. You seem to have no problem with the biggest corporations in the US paying 0 taxes despite broadcasting gigantic profits. Which means the jobs in those corporations are being funded by tax payer money.
    Bringing up Venezuela is a non argument. Venezuela is in the situation it is because we and our allies have put A. sanctions upon sanctions on them, so the country and its citizens can''t profit from their natural resources like oil B. We have consistenly blocked international medical help and medicines from entering the country. That has nothing to do with socialism being wrong but us bullying a country.

  20. Wonder if those idealistic Millennials are ready to pay that VAT tax these "democratic soc" have? Gonna cut into their travel, foodie, & concert experiences!!!

  21. Could this socialist movement in the US because our form of capitalism is rigged???? Just asking, because it is a good idea to ask why a movement in society occurs!

  22. Socialist Bernie has no clue what real suffering is all about, because he has never lived in a socialist dictatorship ! The US is a paradise in comparison and thats why millions would like to move to the US !

  23. If Sanders is not a capitalist how did he come to the means to own 3 homes? Net worth $8-$10 million. The millennial generation have not been educated properly in what socialist are and what they represent.

  24. Petro-Socialism was Venezuela's Cash Cow and we all know how that worked out !" like when the price of Oil drops " eggs in one basket theory ! maybe not so good ! Diversify, Diversify, Diversify !

  25. Why doesn’t Bernie give away 95% of his fortune to the rest of us that make less money, I mean seriously. Don’t we deserve that?

  26. when Bernie was talking about greed, Corruption and inequality, he was looking in a Mirror, when he made that speech !

  27. None of those things Bernie stated are a symptom of Capitalism. They are a symptom of the human heart… and Socialism would just make that 100x worse.

  28. Sorry Dem's,but the majority of Americans do not want Socialism in any way shape or form.The question is how many of you wanting to go socialist ??Those congressman and Senators should step up and be counted.However these politicians are the type that like to hide in the back of the group and not admit they are socialist and want to change the way the U.S..They are afraid that their wanting to go socialist and letting the public now would get them voted out.Come on all you Dem senators and congressman stand up and be counted for what you are !!!!!

  29. Greetings from Germany!! I know the Swedes, Nirwegians and Danes wouldn't be amused if you told them they are a socialist country 😀

  30. Old Bernie. Old crazy, hypocritical, unhinged, google-eyed, shite talking, successful capitalist millionaire Bernie.

  31. The global rulers want to make this a socialist country. Then they can mount the head of the USA on their wall. This is why they make it near impossible for young people to get ahead. These are the same people (not Russians) who created the USSR.

  32. Bernie Sanders and these radical leftis are such hypocrites. I think that a lot of people have forgotten what they learned in history class. Do the same thing and expect different results.

  33. For the Love of Little Baby Jesus, do not copy our health care system. I have been on a waitlist for a family doctor for ten months. To re-up my inhaler, I have to go to the ER. I'm a non emergency case so it's a 6-8 hour wait. Doctors in Ontario cannot accept new patients that are not appointed by the gov't. I have two kids under four years old. Not a fckn picnic. 🇺🇸👌🇨🇦

  34. Bernie Sanders is a joke a liar Just like most professional politicians. The polls show ?? What polls?? Oh yeah the ones held in big liberal cities, & given only to those who they know will answer as they want it to reflect. All a bunch of lies. Grass roots America is for the Constitution & the Republic !

  35. Trump's criminal treachery and foxs network fuckery is causing a whole generation to turn from conservative thought and turn to socialism . young people hate your hypocrisy and your selfish greed . unless true Republicans stand with Romney and impeach trump you will never win election again .even with foreign help that trump keeps illeagaly asking for . With Kurdish blood splattered all over you foxpublicans you have no credibility .

  36. Tariffs are taxation without representation imposed by king dictator wanna be where's the tax Patriots when we need them.?

  37. Sanders the repulsive Zio -Bolshevik/ Communist who honeymooned in soviet Russia and drank beer and sang Communist songs with his Commie Pals – this highly wealthy globalist pretending he cares is a joke.

  38. Cucker as always misleading his viewers. Bernie is not a socialist, he is a democratic socialist. There is a HUGE difference. Just ask yourself this question, do you think it is fair how much you make per year, compared to everyone on tv that spread lies about Bernie and being a democratic socialist. It will tell you that Bernie is going to take their money in taxes and give us healthcare, clean air and water, etc. The rich will still be rich, but we will have a better quality of life.

  39. I am so glad to hear someone supporting the President on his peace initiatives. The Trump Derangement Syndrome is so strong in this country that even those who would march in a peace demonstration will not acknowledge what President Trump is accomplishing in terms of working toward a world of peace through economic rather than purely military means. Thank you, Rand Paul!

  40. At 1:35 I would LOVE to see a President Trump Re-election TV Ad playing only this , maybe 2 or 3 times in a Row followed by President Trump saying he approves this message.

  41. The corporations go to poor countries and use poor workers to manufacture there goods. They then sell the good to rich countries for large profits. The workers in both countries don't benefit from this system . The corporations pay little or no tax.

  42. Canada’s “universal” health-care system is a little less universal when it comes to immigrants.
    All citizens and permanent residents are eligible for public health insurance, which covers most medical issues. Newcomers to Canada, however, may not have the same access to services.

    The Canada Health Act says all insured persons are entitled to the insured benefits offered within that province. “Insured persons” are lawful residents who have lived in the province for three months and live there for at least 183 days a year. Tourists, visitors, and “transients” are excluded.

    For newcomers, the level of coverage depends on your immigration status. Generally speaking though, immigrants have limited access to free medical care and will likely have to pay for some treatments or insurance.

    The provinces and territories offer free emergency medical services, but some restrictions may apply.

    Refugees are eligible for care under the Interim Federal Health Program, which provides limited benefits to protected persons who are otherwise not eligible for provincial or territorial plans. It includes doctor and hospital visits, immunizations and pre- and post-natal care.

    Temporary foreign workers should have insurance provided by their employer.

  43. We know that Trump will be re-elected. That is because democrats love to sabotage their future and everyone else around them.

  44. Rand Paul's neighbor… if you're reading this, can you please break Rand's other ribs? America would be grateful for the service.

  45. F your communist and socialist ways we don’t Want that if u want it kick rocks and move somewhere else ! There are plenty of floundering countries trying to
    Be or are socialist and or communist ( one and the same)

  46. Bernie has 3 houses. His wife was investigated for stealing 3 million from her school  wasn't she? what greed are you talking about Bernie, the greed that makes people work hard and do well, legally, or the greed that makes people break the law?

  47. In the USA people want Socialism so they can have Free Health Care & Free College in Venezuela they have Socialism and they just want to have food.
    If these fools who want Socialism in the USA don't wake up soon, they will wish their only problem was health care and education. They don't realize how good they have it now.

  48. Bernie is an effin idiot. I live in Canada, our socialized medicine sucks, is too expensive and is a drain on the taxpayers

  49. Yeah. Get rid of Social programs.
    1. Social Security
    2. Medicare
    3. Free 12 grades of education
    4. The Veterans administration
    5. All disability benefits
    6. Medicaid
    7. More…

  50. Mr. Paul, It's a dirty shame, that your righteous name is so close to the Rat Rino Paul Ryan. I was sometimes confused of which name belonged to the good AMERICAN. And which name "Paul Ryan" was the traitorous Rat Rino. Jeff Flake, Paul Ryan and John McCain are all in this catagory. These Demon Worshipping Rats need to be excucuted, then tried to see if they died in pain or not. If, they didn't die in pain more action is needed. To make sure it doesn't happen again.

  51. Raise your hand if your plan would provide coverage for (illegal aliens) oops, I mean undocumented immigrants. All put up their hand. The audience applauds.
    My thought: Let all of them pay for it…….

  52. As Bernie sits around talking for a living, producing nothing of value, he calls the people that are producing all the stuff we want and need greedy. The only thing I like about Bernie is he seems to believe the BS he says where the rest of them clearly don't but say it anyway.

  53. I hope you Republicans have written to each of the 982 banks that received welfare checks — totaling $630,000,000,000 — from We the People ten years ago. No? But you're here complaining about sh*t like a widow having guaranteed healthcare for her kids? Sound reasoning. And very moral.

  54. Prople buy into socialism because of nievity. They think getting free stuff is good but nothing is free. The strong arm tactics of socialism rob everyone od freedom. Welfare queens are slaves to government agencies. They can't even have their baby daddies in the home with them.

  55. Does it bother anyone else that Rand seems oblivious to so many things … ?
    Being raised in that intense Libertarian household puts his core values and beliefs out there in La La land .
    Daddy issues ? How can he not have them . He knows he would be a teacher in Hicksville Tenn . Without his daddy's name …

  56. Bernie Sanders is the BIGGEST HYPOCRITE in the world! His rhetoric is nothing but lies! Did you know he's worth 2.5 million?! Let's start our wealth "redistribution" with his assets shall we?! Bottom line is Sanders is a communist and cultural Marxist who thinks he will be on top of the "food chain" once he's in power! Sorry Bernie but you are expendable and will be imprisoned like the rest of us once they are done with you!!! Just look at Venezuela and Cuba to see Socialism in action! Wake up Millennial's and use what little brains you have left!!! Nothing is free, NOTHING!
