Rep. Ron Paul, whose maverick presidential bids shook the GOP, said in the wake of this week's elections that the country has already veered over the fiscal cliff and he sees no chance of righting ship in a country where too many people are dependent on government.

"We're so far gone. We're over the cliff," the Texas Republican told Bloomberg Television's "In the Loop" program. "We cannot get enough people in Congress in the next 5-10 years who will do wise things." The video can be seen at http://www.bloomberg.com/video/ron-paul-on-fiscal-cliff-and-vows-to-compromise-MYkAiqYBTaiHwXZL9Tvxkw.html.

Mr. Paul, who is retiring after 12 terms in the House, said voters on Tuesday rejected Mitt Romney because he had opposed the government bailout of General Motors and Chrysler.

"The people in the Midwest voted against him: 'Oh, we have to be taken care of!' So that vote was sort of like what we are laughing at in Greece," Mr. Paul said.

"People do not want anything cut," he said. "They want all the bailouts to come. They want the Fed to keep printing the money. And they don't believe that we've gone off the cliff or are close to going off the cliff. They think we can patch it over, that we can somehow come up with some magic solution. But you can't have a budgetary solution if you don't change what the role of government should be. As long as you think we have to police the world and run this welfare state, all we are going to argue about is who will get the loot."

And by the way, how can the college kids go so hard for Ron Paul when he teaches and preaches responsibility?

Because he's prolife.

He can have all the greatest ideas in the world to solve the issues that really cover what government is supposed to be about and provide, but if you're against a woman having the ability to wholesale slaughter a fetus...lol...well...forget that and pay for my Trojans or BC pills too. Hrmpff...

You make yourself look small by focusing on buzzwords and not the gist of the statement. Ron Paul will never get anywhere because liberals believe he wants his hands in vaginas.

I agree that abortion is a contentious issue that may hold back some college age voters from voting for a guy like Paul, but if he had been given the GOP nomination, I have no doubt he would've had a much better chance of winning but lobbyists and the current system will never back a guy that would change the way things are.

Even if some college age voters are pro-choice, he would still win some of them over. I was talking with someone the other day and told them that abortion has gotten to the point that it's irrelevant when it comes to voting. There's no way anyone will ever repeal Roe v Wade at this point. Abortion is just too controversial, so even if a Repub ran with overturning that on his platform, it wouldn't happen. And for that reason, I think he would still get a lot of college votes had he been the nominee.

He is and was much more appealing and engaging to a wider audience than Romney could've ever dreamed to be.
