Ron Paul Institute Chairman Ron Paul told host Larry King on the Friday episode of Ora TV's Politicking that in November he would vote for neither Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump nor Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Nevertheless, Paul did have something favorable to say about each candidate.
Commenting in the interview first regarding Sanders, Paul said that Sanders “stands on principle” and that, “even though we disagreed on a lot of issues,” Paul and Sanders “would work together” sometimes when they were both in the United States Congress. Paul provides, in the interview, an example of where Paul and Sanders had common ground that led them to work together:
We would support some legislation, and people would say, “How are you doing this with a socialist?” I said, “We’re both against corporatism; we’re both against the special benefits to big business,” which was true. But, you know, his answer to that wouldn’t always be the same. Mine would always drift to the free market, and his would drift to “well we need more government to redistribute wealth.” But we could both attack subsidies for large corporations or the military-industrial complex. So, in that sense, you know, there is a kinship.
