In the latest installment of Texas Straight Talk, Congressman Ron Paul addresses the absurdity of the $80 million paid by taxpayers for the two major party conventions. And we are supposed to be a society based on a written rule of law, not on political parties! Democracy- particularly in this mass media age- is incredibly dangerous! We mustn't only defend against the tyranny of the majority, we must beware of false consensus being thrust on us by controlled press! Video compliments of YouTube User: RonPaul2008dotcom.
