Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) took to The Daily Show on Monday night to take his libertarian positions to the mainstream.
Paul explained why the media is wrong to ignore his candidacy and asserted that he is in a position to win the Republican presidential nomination.
“I think we… most likely are on the verge of an explosion of interest in this country,” he said of his campaign.
Catering to the show’s younger audience, Paul repeated his opposition to the war on drugs, calling it more dangerous than the drugs themselves because, he said, it violates civil liberties.
Jon Stewart called Paul “one of the last consistent politicians that we see in this world,” after joking that Paul might get more attention in Republican debates if he were to filp-flop and call for war with Iran.
