    How is posting just a link useful? What do you want to accomplish? Why not try and articulate your opinion, or are you just looking to start another round of the PRSI circus of partisan debates? :rolleyes:

    I'd like to see the vid on the off chance it actually contains a well thought out and articulated argument but sadly (or maybe fortunately) it's blocked from work.

    Why is my opinion needed? The issue(s) were laid out pretty well in the video.

    To me links like this are for the sake of information. Be informed about MM's and RP's POV - They've studied the issues more than I.

    Well then how about you enlighten some of us with YouTube blocked at work as to the content, and your thoughts on the matter? Honestly do you think the issues are well represented in the video, is there anything missing or misrepresented in the debate?

    Honestly I think a first post like yours should be against the forum rules. It's not really a conversation starter and more like advertising. If it was truly for information purposes the content should be discussed in your initial post.

    Alot of people come to the PRSI, plunk down a link of the most inane arguments and sit back and watch as the the partisan wings rip the truth down the center and cling on to their beliefs. It's what generally keeps me out of here, but this got my attention as it deals with something I'm quite familiar with. I may click the link when I get home; if I'm needing a good facepalm moment at the slant most of these 'debates' take.

    Why couldn't this thread nave been called Ron Paul vs Michael Moore?

    Oh, I know- because you had to sensationalize it with words like "free market" and "socialism". :rolleyes: You've put your opinion in the thread title.

    An interview with Ron Paul. Funny that it's titled "Ron Paul vs. Michael Moore on Larry King."

    Anyway, they are both against Corporatism. Ron Paul believes in NO government intervention. Very unrealistic.

    Ron Paul vs. Michael Moore. I liked it better the first time with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels.
