Ron Paul Classics: The Morton Downey Jr Show (1988)

January 9th, 2013

If you've never seen this video footage you're in for a real treat- if not a bizarre one! When the show was taped in July of 1988- Dr. Paul was in the midst of his first Presidential campaign as the Libertarian nominee. Always willing to spread the message in a hostile environment, Candidate Paul appeared on The Morton Downey Jr. Show -perhaps the original home of anti-intellectual "conservative" dialogue. Watching Downey, his guests, and his audience full of misfits makes an MSNBC appearance look tame and respectful, in comparison! The Doctor took on, among others, Guardian Angel Lisa Sliwa in a 15 minute showdown that featured Paul defending the traditional Libertarian policy he still defends today. Other guests included Otto von Ruggins and Professor John Flynn.
