If you want to know what's going on in America in 2007, have a look at this video. The Google staff came out in force to hear Presidential candidate Ron Paul deliver his message of liberty, limited government, and free markets.
Representative Paul answers a litany of questions from Google exec Elliot Schrage and audience members on a very wide range of issues, and it makes for a very interesting and candid discussion.
And, brace yourself for this, you will actually see a candidate speaking honestly here. Paul is willing to take stances on issues that might otherwise have alienated a segment of his audience, had he not been so forthright and eloquent while elaborating on his positions.
All in all, a great discussion and an excellent introduction to Ron Paul's libertarian and constitutional values. Watch it, bookmark it, and pass it around.
