You know, the Constitution was written for a very precise manner. It was not designed to restrain the individual, not to restrain you: it was to protect your liberties and to restrain the federal government. But liberty, liberty has to be re-emphasized because we have been careless over the last 100 years,” insisted the candidate. “We have taken liberty and chopped it up into pieces. Some people think liberty has to do with personal habits, which I agree. Other people think liberty is how to spend your money, and they defend that part and then they fight about when to do what.
I think what we need to do is make this emphasis that liberty means you have a right to your life and your privacy and the way you want to live your life, as long as you don’t hurt people, and you have a right to keep and spend your money as you want to.
But freedom, freedom is a wonderful idea, and that’s why I get so excited. But I really get excited when I see young people saying it. It is a wonderful idea. Freedom is popular, don’t you know that? Freedom brings people together.”
