Everyone will say this may go into abovepolitics, but the state of the U.S. economy is very much a current topic, despite who the speaker is explaining it to you.

Please watch this video and allow Ron Paul to explain in more detail than any other candidate has the courage or competency to, where does the housing issue come from, how currency is inflated etc........

This speech is so well done, as much people as possible should watch this, so if you think the message is important only then please flag it.



Very powerful video!

I like the end of the first video. Doctor Paul left poor old Bernanke speechless rubbing his nose in discomfort. HE knows Dr. Paul is correct, and he honestly doesn't care.

That's the feeling I got too. The little nervous smile. He knows he's ripping off the US citizenry, he doesn't care and is confident in his masters ability to maintain their lock on power. I believe Ron Paul favors some kind of gold or silver standard which would pretty much end inflation. In fact I believe gold is keeping pace with oil these days, our gas prices would probably stabilize.

Thank you for posting these videos, I have heard alot about Rep Paul and have only seen his appearances in the Rep debates where I thought he did not fare well, and to be honest, not very Presidential.

However, I have a much more profound respect for this man after viewing these clips.

He came off as knowledgeable, concerned and well spoken in this hearing.

I know that most of those in DC know what he is talking about, and they do not want to hear this coming from another congressman.

Me, being a simple man, not market savvy, not heavily invested, not looking to make BIG PROFITS, came to much of the same base talking points of this Representative..

The citizens of the US, lower to upper middle class are being taken for a ride.

Paul challenged the FED dude on it and the FED dude pointed the finger directly back at congress.

To some extent the FED dude is correct, but IMO it is the concerted effort of the majority of our elected, be it REPS/DEMS, Senators/Congressmen, Pres/Vice Pres...

They are ALL responsible, the few who would challenge their positions like Congressman Paul, are ceremoniously ridiculed by not only fellow members of Congress, but increasingly by the MSM.

An example would be the FNC debate where the crowd was allowed to BOO and JEER when Paul was trying to make a point.

Remember having PAUL as POTUS, will change nothing.

Change Congress , get rid of the incumbents, get new blood in there, get some real CITIZEN representation in there.

Forget the LOBBY, PACS, UNIONS, CORPORATIONS,

Get back to the PEOPLE.

It will take time but it has to start somewhere.

Throw away your party alliances, make a NEW ONE

For the PEOPLE!

Might as well be NOW.

It's time the Congress had the citizens on THEIR back instead of riding on OURS.

If I was an American, I'd be voting for Ron Paul.

The guy is the only politician I have seen worth voting for in my lifetime.

Before the U.S. House of Representatives, April 25, 2006



Forget about the lip service given to transparency by new Fed Chairman Bernanke.....

Bankers, who benefit from our fractional reserve system, likewise never criticize the Fed, especially since it’s the lender of last resort that bails out financial institutions when crises arise. Link


RP...a lone voice in the congressional wilderness delivered this fine speech before the current banking crises...before the subprime melt...and $200-ago in terms of Gold.

Thanks for the vids ModernAcademia

The gold standard is not without its flaws. The rapid mobilizations needed by some countries for national survival during the World Wars would not have been possible with a strict gold standard. Furthermore, many would argue that some, if not all, of the panics of the late 1800s and early 1900s were caused by the gold standard. More to come (maybe).

What this guy said, Ron Paul seems to be the only politician on the planet who seems to give a crap about the working man. Of course, that means he'll never President.

While I do support the Gold Standard, this is actually very true....

I hope people realize, if resorting to the Gold Standard, the easiest, fastest and most sought after approach of increasing national wealth was.....

Stealing from defeated peoples. Conquest, strongest survives. Spend to much, need more gold? .. Tax out occupied territories or strike smaller wealthy states.

And yes, you can have inflation, Gold is not inflation proof.. one empire that experienced probably more ups and downs with inflation on the Gold Standard was Rome. The more gold you have per person the more they can spend the more it cost to buy and the more expensive to export -- essentially the same exact ways we work now.

Everything some of you are saying regarding the gold standard is true.

Nonetheless you have to admit it's currently the best choice available.

Silver and Gold can be expensive and it is tangible. We must stop just printing money out of thin air, we need something tangible to back up currency, and if not gold than what else?

It's the best choice available, and Dr. Paul is an excellent economist!

There are some good candidates in Canada as well. You guys have a small but active Libertarian Party that stands in line with many issues with Ron Paul.

Great videos. I appreciate you for bringing them to my attention. I really hope the American people have enough sense to make Ron Paul the next President of the United States.

Ben bernake is a liar, look in the eyes of this judas goat, (I am not religious) and see he laughs, as he is confronted by Ron Paul who is saying the truth. The American Dollar at 2:10 to the UK pound or 1:46 to the euro. Something is wrong??? Just like the Nixon era?

Having watched the second video Ben Bernake is a lying C word. Apologies to other members and viewers and moderators who have to remove it.

Ron Paul is Awesome, This is coming from a Brit who does not agree with Reichs Fuhrer Brown and his socialist agenda, I omit the national as he has sold our country to europe.

In a european context Reichs Fuhrer Brown has taxed the British public into submission The Tax burdon in the UK both direct and indirect is above 50% and Reichs Fuhrer Brown, as Chancellor of the Exchequer sold most or at least 50% of the UK's gold reserves when they were at rock bottom in May 1999. Economically this socialist -(national) A-Hole is a scourge on humanity.

What none of you realize is something I first saw on tv during the Clinton admin. The US economy is not broke. We are in debt for a reason, so that at the right time the govt plans to not pay what it owes international banks so that the global economy will collapse. Our govt prints our money based on our production. If a laser-space based missile system were developed, the govt gives itself the system for free. During the Clinton admin our total gnp was about 2 trillion. If our economy were what we see in the real world, cities would not have the money for bridges and roads, and yet they apparently do have the money. This isn't even voodoo economics, it's been in place in secret for at least 20 years.

As a student of economics for at least seven years of my life I can say that the economic system that we abide by is a complete fabrication.

MONEY = VALUE. This whole Scam is based on belief. If society as a whole lost belief that the issued currency, Greenback, Pound or Euro was worthless, It would be worth nothing as it is a FIAT currency based on belief and intrinsically worth nothing. The whole monetary system is a scam.
