Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) appeared on InfoWars with host Alex Jones, the crazed conspiracy theorist from Texas, and discussed how they think violence will erupt in America and will lead to an authoritarian government.

“If push comes to shove and there’s violence in the street, they’re going to look for a strongman, they’re going to look for somebody who is an authoritarian and the violence in the cities won’t last, and then people will say, yeah, that’s right, we can’t have anarchy, and they will capitulate,” he said. “The day will come.”
