Can Donald Trump “Drain the Swamp”?

Former Congressman and Presidential candidate Ron Paul (R-TX) hopes that president-elect Donald Trump can do it, but from what he’s seen, it isn’t very likely.

“I got involved in politics in the 1970s, and my goal was to ‘drain the swamp, and every year since then, Republicans or Democrats in charge, the government always got bigger!

He might be very sincere, and he might try to get good people, but the job may be overwhelming. But what I have suggested is so far, I haven’t seen the kind of individual that will really do the job. That’s where the real challenge is.”

 

Dr. Paul explains that even for someone who is sincere about fighting back against government expansion, government corruption, and government malaise the job is just too big for one man or woman. If we truly want change in Washington, D.C. it will take a larger national movement and many more political leaders being willing to take on the task of reining in the government.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
