    I can't get over how many people have no care for anyone but themselves. They are all "Don't raise my taxes so that single mother of three can have medical too. She hasn't suffered like I have!" Sad, little egos that have no idea how disgusting they are. Bernie Sanders 2020! We deserve better.

            Trevor should have corrected the record. Socialism is when the PEOPLE own the means of production not the government.

                    why does Sen. Paul not give "socialism" the same 'variety of flavors' as "capitalism"? (ex. cronyism, free-market, etc.) His arguments are confusing.

                      Big shutout to Randy Paul!! 🙏👍 the point is both economic systems become flawed and won't be able to balanced each other when you allow greed and corruption to influence those in power.. ANARCHY IS COMING.

                        Oky I like Trevor Noah again, he dismantled Rand Paul’s misinformed view of our current economic system.

                            Being democrat used to mean lower tax on lower and middle class and higher tax on rich ...now republican means lower taxes on all and democrats higher taxes on all.

                              Trevor Noah let Rand Paul get away with the right wing lie that Hitler was a socialist without a challenge. You have to shove that lie back down their throats.

                                America is built on capitalism and it’s a good example for capitalism ! But capitalism doesn’t always work so there is Socialism and it works there. That doesn’t mean it will work in America. America should stick to its values.

                                    They are going to kill a lot of Kurds.
                                    This might become at least close to Genocide.

                                      Good interview i must say,kuddos to Trevor that gave him a chance to speak...personally i think why the youth are more for socialism,cos it sounds good!! Free education,free housing etc..but in reality nothing is free...someone always pays for it(taxpayers)

                                              Nice questions, but no push back on the lies and misleading statements made by Sen. Rand Paul. This is the real issue with corporate media, their agenda ensures there is no push back on all of the lies, deceits and innuendo. Most of the media is part of the corruption that is destroying our country from the inside out.

                                                Burisma had been under investigation by the Ukrainian prosecutor, but that was 2 years prior to Hunter Biden joining the board. Biden on the board is definitely shady as hell, but Rand is lying in this interview.

                                                        Lately, it appears Rand has ramped up his defense of trump. He must truly believe he's going to get a cushy cabinet job after the 2020 election. He's drank the kool-aid.

                                                            People forget Rand was born with means. He got to where he was because of his dad and his family. Rand did not live the same kind of life 95 percent of this comment section did. He’s just a rich guy that is seeing the world from a different pair of glasses. You can’t be poor to get elected, some rare cases, and you can’t be rich and understand the common struggle of everyday life so we are constantly electing rich assholes telling you how to live in your life. He can call it whatever he wants to call it but until he spends some time down here I rather not listen to a guy who’s been up there the entire time looking down on the rest

                                                              So Paul uses 100 years ago as an example...why not show multiple examples in decades? Laws, prices, populations, development, taxes and other things have changed at different intervals. Using such a broad analogy don't seem to answer the questions accurately. The broader the answer the less insight we receive. Still looks like sleight of hand.

And none of the problems of SU, China, Cuba and Co got anything to do with the principles of socialism. That guy is not knowing what he's talking about in any way.

Ask any Denmark national and they’ll tell you Bernie’s policies are considered centrist in Scandinavia. He also only gives one example of a type of socialism when heathers are numerous types. But what do you expect from a hack Libertarian like Rand at the end of the day though

This irresponsible, traitorous and not how the law works. Everyone need to face the music if they did anything wrong. No one gets a pass because other also break the law be it democrats or republicans.

                                                                                      • Eccentric Bazaar

                                                                                        It is nice to see Rand Paul on this show. He seems reasonable on the surface but I think he is a pretty slippery guy. First, no one is talking Maoism or total state control of production. People want a medical system that doesn't break them financially and scheme against them to push dubious drugs and procedures on patients every time they turn around. Taking away some of the profit motive might do that. Second, yes we don't want to be in the Middle East, but we are. Notifying allies by Tweet that they are about to be screwed is hardly the way decent people act . Third, Rand Paul can recognize Crony Capitalism but what is he doing about it beyond drawing his paycheck from Crony Capitalists? I think he is a fraud.

The U.S. is fighting it's self created enemies. I agree with our policies. But I disagree with our policies. This is our standard of excellence and leadership. Screwy double talkers and cowards.😕

                                                                                              The fox got in the Hen house when there were a lottt of eggs to be had.... corruption in US resulted in deregulated capitalism that is exploiting the American people, and the planet-environment. When I was in school, we were taught that Monopolies were not allowed in US. Rand hasn't realized back in the day when he was born, education cost less, housing costs were far lower, wages supported families on middle class living.... when I was 18, in the late 70's, I made a little above minimum wage, and I could afford a large nice apartment in Silicon Valley, and plenty of apartments were available, it was easy to buy a house. I bought my 1st house when I was 21 yrs old. Rand is clueless to the fact that the Middle Class has shrunk, and the billionaires are getting fat by taking advantage of the American people. Did Trump send him to the show? lol Let's just keep some of the Baby Boomers like Bernie, and Mit Romney, Rand Paul - some of his theories/ideas are interesting, and replace the majority of the MALE Baby Boomers in Congress with Milenial Females, baby - gotta change it up!
