Ron Paul: Rand and I Have ‘Very Similar’ Views

by Andrew Johnson

Ron Paul may not discuss policy much with his son, but the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, according to the elder Paul.

“He obviously has views very similar to mine,” Ron Paul said of his son, Rand. For example, on United State military action in Syria, the former Texas representative said, “I haven’t sensed that he has much of a different position.”

But he did acknowledge that his son doesn’t often consult with him about these types of issues. “He goes his way and I go my way, because we’re pretty independent-minded,” Paul said.
