Ron Paul interviewed by G. Stephanopoulos

Presidential candidate Ron Paul, U.S. representative from Texas, was interviewed at length on ABC television's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos." Stephanopolous seemed amused and surprised that a politician who has adhered so closely to his professed principles has survived for so long, and the interviewer expressed his willingness to bet all the cash he was carrying (he didn't say how much that was) that Paul has no chance of winning the presidency.

Paul acknowledged that the odds against him are long but added that he was never expected to win election to Congress either, and now has served there for almost 20 years in three stints. Perhaps most interesting was Paul's explanation of his surprising success so far in the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, particularly with fund raising. Paul attributed it to a simple desire among Americans for freedom from ever-more-pervasive government.
