RFK Jr. and Ron Paul on Free Market
Former U.S. Representative Ron Paul has expressed his agreement with U.S. presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (RFK Jr.), who recently said that America does not have a free market. Kennedy is a son of former U.S. Attorney General and Senator Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of former U.S. President John F. Kennedy. Paul, an American author, physician, and retired politician, served as a U.S. representative and made three attempts to become the president of the United States. In 2015, he founded the Ron Paul Liberty Report, a platform dedicated to offering insightful opinions and analysis on contemporary issues affecting our lives and finances.
Paul tweeted Saturday: “RFK Jr. recently pointed out that America doesn’t have a free market, but rather a crony corporatist system. He’s right!”
In a follow-up tweet, Paul wrote: “The problem in America is not our ability to voluntarily transact with one another. The problem is the persistent removal of that ability; a removal conducted by the bond between politicians and crony corporations. So called ‘public/private partnerships’ are the problem.” In the Ron Paul Liberty Report episode aired on Friday, the former congressman explained why he believes RFK Jr. “is right.”
On July 26, RFK Jr. said during an interview with Fox News: “We have a system of cushy socialism for the super-rich, and this brutal, savage, merciless capitalism for the poor. And it’s all designed to strip-mine the middle class of this country of all their equity, all of their assets, and move it to the upper echelons.” The presidential candidate tweeted following the interview:
We don’t have free market capitalism in this country. What we have is socialism for the super-rich and brutal capitalism for the poor.
