Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Video: Ron Paul PWNS Bill Buckley

From the Campaign for Liberty site, a 22-year-old firing line episode featuring Libertarian candidate Ron Paul sparring will ex-CIA agent and Bilderberg attendee William Buckley. Let's just say the core issues have not changed at all.  Buckley gives Ron a hard time about his assertion that we don't need a CIA or FBI - you can tell it's a big deal to him. Congressman Paul asks the obvious questions about what happened to that limited government that Ronald Reagan promised. Yes, he cut taxes, but that's not helping us now, is it? I found this interview amusing because Ron Paul makes the hero of modern, mainstream conservatism look like a liberal - defending the IRS for petes sakes! I can't help but notice how Buckley dodges each general point that Paul makes with some specific incident and counters each specific incident with a generality.
