Ron Paul: 'The status quo cannot stand the truth'

-The Hill
Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) is defending his son Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a 2016 presidential candidate, against the mounting criticism from members of his own party.

"You know that you're on the right track when everybody's after you," Ron Paul said on Fox Business Network's "After the Bell."

"The status quo cannot stand the truth to be put out in the open," he added.

The elder Paul repeatedly brushed aside the notion that comments from his son, who advocates a less interventionist foreign policy, had essentially torpedoed his presidential campaign.

"He's doing very, very well," Paul, himself a two-time GOP presidential candidate, told Fox Business.
