Boy, is this ever an important and timely read.

Ron Paul will be releasing this statement to Congress next week.

In it, he addresses the upcoming Financial Disaster facing this nation, as well as much of the larger global economy. He touches on the catalyzing factors, such as the fiat monetary system, and the near-criminal central banking system and fed, which produces worthless capital out of thin air, as a means to keep us in debt slavery and servitude to these powerful entities. This reads like something out of a conspiratory science fiction novel, yet it is all too real and verifiable.

I hope everyone takes the time to read this. This guy is one of the last true heros we have left in the gov, as he addresses issues that most congressional members are deaf, dumb and blind to...

The financial crisis, still in its early stages, is apparent to everyone: gasoline prices over $4 a gallon; skyrocketing education and medical-care costs; the collapse of the housing bubble; the bursting of the NASDAQ bubble; stockmarkets plunging; unemployment rising;, massive underemployment; excessive government debt; and unmanageable personal debt. Little doubt exists as to whether we’ll get stagflation. The question that will soon be asked is: When will the stagflation become an inflationary depression?

There are various reasons that the world economy has been globalized and the problems we face are worldwide. We cannot understand what we’re facing without understanding fiat money and the long-developing dollar bubble.

There were several stages. From the inception of the Federal Reserve System in 1913 to 1933, the Central Bank established itself as the official dollar manager. By 1933, Americans could no longer own gold, thus removing restraint on the Federal Reserve to inflate for war and welfare.

wow.... thanks for sharing this. you are 100% right that he is a hero! the love i feel in my heart for this man and what he has done and is doing for this spoiled country is overwhelming. look at HOW MUCH he has done in the face the lions. ppl would not be wise to discount their vote for him. he is 3rd party still and he certainly has earned every vote of every person that values what this country was meant to stand for. i heard a quote once that said something to the effect of the man that seeks the position of power doesn't deserve it, but rather the humble man that holds truth and justice in his heart despite whether he is in power or not. to me, the latter is ron paul.

This kind of talk is why no one will listen to him – he is telling the truth and it’s a hard, bitter truth indeed. Far easier to vote for the hucksters that promise you everlasting peace, prosperity and harmony with no cost or personal effort involved.

This kind of talk is exactly what killed his candidacy in the first place. The bulk of people, to the very core of their being, do NOT want to hear this kind of truth. They want warm-fuzzy words and government provided health care. They want peace by talking and free HBO. The one thing they don’t want, and cannot tolerate, is to be told that life may get uncomfortable and they may have to make hard decisions and take difficult action.

If he had any shred of the faintest hope of becoming a serious third-party candidate, this presentation will surely extinguish it.

I agree, and that's exactly what I'm going to do.

No one has the right to tell us that we can only vote for this person or that... if they don't put RP's name on the ballot then I will. Screw the PTB. No one limits my decision except myself.

Thanks for posting!

I use to be a Republican until I saw that Bush has been doing things that I expect from socialists and communists.

I use to watch Fox news until I started noticing the strange things happening, like Ron Paul's exclusion from the Republican debate.

I started doing my own research into the New World order, Builderberg Group, and the North American Union creation, in secrecy. Did some research on the mysterious WTC 7 building and more. Let's just say that I'm still researching all the time.

It is scary but this stuff is really happening!

Jessy Ventura was on Fox news, this morning, I heard. I'm going to see if I can find that video on youtube. He may be running for Senate to find out what has been happening with the whole WTC 7 and to get answers to questions he seems to not be able to have answered.

He even has a new book called, "Don't Start The Revolution Without Me." It's on Amazon, but I've never heard anyone mention it except the Alex Jones' show.

I know that people may think that it may sound treasonous and even our own government may try labeling us (true Patriots and Constitutionists) as terrorists to keep us quiet and try to shut us up, but maybe a revolution is inevitable.

We've done it back in 1776! This gave us our greatest freedoms and our biggest tax cut EVER!

It's scary to think about it and frankly, I don't want to be hiding out in the woods without electricity or the internet for god knows how long.

It will piss me off if it gets to that point.

Ron Paul has it exactly right with us having to get back to the gold standard! We need to take power away from the Federal Reserve (who's as Federal as Federal Express) and give it back to the people.

These guys printing and controling our money and owning the banks are the same guys that got us to revolt in the Revolutionary War.

They are doing it again!

What are we going to do about it?

Think about everything America was founded upon, it's freedoms, the founding fathers' intent.

Think about your future and the future of your children as you celebrate Independence Day, tomorrow.

God help us and God save America!

Ron Paul is great, I just hope that someone in Congress is actually listening.

More often then not, when someone actually steps up and says what needs to be said, they are usually ignored.

Maybe Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich could coalesce together into some strange and mystifying super-senator.

Just like in Power Rangers.

And then they can take back Washington by storm.

God bless Ron Paul.

He is one of the bravest and most courageous men to ever set foot into American politics.

Now the real question, will anyone listen?

posted on Jul, 3 2008 @ 06:02 PM
I think this is the best line in the article and the one I agree with completely.

If modern technology had been used to promote the ideas of liberty, free markets, sound money and trade, it would have ushered in a new golden age—a globalism we could accept.

This is exactly the issue we're facing now, this is part of the reason for my contention that the internet is our most powerful tool ever and we are wasting it.

Seriously .. I am concerned for his safety.

you know that is damn acurate, and paul is a breath of fresh air although i could debate a few of his statements (basically that a gold standard is not a walk in the park), and no system is either) but the bigger truth is people hate bitter painful truths, they rationalize away so much stuff in their lives that it takes a tremendous amount of pain or insight to take something (that has yet to occur) seriously and muster the will and register something as such a necessity that they need to make it a priority and address it, human nature and apathy are my best guesses.

Anyone looking for a slightly more scholorally review of the financial situation (domestically and globally) may want to read the Bank of International Sentiments (BIS) 78'th annual review of the world economy. (came out june 30'th) They are considered the "Central bank" overseeing every central bank.

The current market turmoil is without precedent in the postwar period. With a significant risk of recession in the US, compounded by sharply rising inflation in many countries, fears are building that the global economy might be at some kind of tipping point

I think in the "Hieracrchy of errors" one would be wise to take the chance and ERR on the side of caution and create a plan B and prepare for a second great depression unfolding over a couple years. This seems less hurtful than saying "ah everything will be fine" because if you look for ways to rationalize away something external like this you may realize you are exchanging temporary peace of mind for something out of your control that could (worse case) leave you with no money, job, or means of travel. In other words if i worked in the service sector i would kiss my boss's ass while looking for another job or learning a different skill. This advice is for those who are not wealthy enough or lucky enough to get/own a house in the mountains/rural land (off the grid) and ride it out w cheap access to food and water and means of protection.

The BIS is not some "fringe" politician, they are a very conservative body and not in the business of insighting alarm. You must read between the lines and realize the level of uncertainty is at historic heights, best to be prepared. for a summary

and this is a more "finance for dummies" version of the same data below

Flag and stars mostly all around.

Ron Paul knows what is wrong with this country. He puts his life at risk to expose what is going on in this country. It's scary what's truly happening, and the crooks behind the scenes plotting and planning all the different ways to kill Americans.

Amazing more people can't listen to Ron Paul's words, instead of writing him off because the MSM portrays him as "insane" and "out of line" with America.

I made a thread recently, about if this ever comes crashing down, and asking HOW We The People can come together, and claim back our country... Instead of fighting and killing our neighbours, like TPTB is planning that we'll do. Shame, no replies... Can it be done? Ron Paul and Kucinich are the only ones trying to get the word out that something's wrong.

.....But the MSM says to ignore them.

Great stuff. Let’s hope a proofreader gets a hold of it before it’s read into the congressional record.

Yeah, me too. I hope that Ron and his son Rand don't both get into the same small plane at the same time.

While I tend to agree that "something big is going down," I also think Ron Paul was a little on the edgy side. Indeed, there are events happening that we cannot explain, recent UFO sightings, global climate shift, hell even the global polar shift. But Ron Paul, despite all the hope he brought us, solidified the "free-thinker" as a pure conspiracy theorist.

posted on Jul, 3 2008 @ 09:58 PM
People don't like to, whats the word....think. So when Ron Paul talks and every other word isn't Israel, terrorist, 9/11 and Iraq, people are turned off to the idea of actually using their brains and realizing that there is more wrong with this country than just Iraq and gas prices.

This is why I admire this man. He isn't quitting. Although he was forced...I mean dropped out of the race, he isn't stopping. Where the hell is Romney? Or Huckabee? Edwards? Where are these tools? What are they doing for this country post-presidential nomination run? The same thing they were doing before and during the race - nothing.

Ron Paul keeps addressing Congress, he keeps issuing statements on his websites about things like the Trans-Texas Corridor, he forms an organization called Campaign for Liberty that is meant to educate people and encourage political activism for liberty, free market, non-interventionism and more.

He knows he can't win the presidential nomination, and that hasn't stopped him from speaking the truth, no matter how few people actually listen.

It makes me laugh. People in this country stand up and salute our founding fathers for what they did, but go out in public and talk about violently revolting against the United States government and see how many people label you a terrorist. People are so stupid that they don't even realize its the same damn thing.

Its really useless at this point. And so close to Independence Day, too. Makes you wonder what it was all for. I'm so sure our founding fathers sat around and dedicated their revolution to us being able to shoot off fireworks and eat BBQ 200 years later, rather than keeping up our end of the bargain to keep government in check.

They say those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Unfortunately it is the tyranny and not the revolution part of our history that is being repeated.

Outstanding and accurate post,sounds like a rant that should go in a commercial as what you said is how I believe most of America feels.I think Ron Paul and Kucinich are truly trying to expose the corruption,but maybe a younger or more 'in touch' representative would do better with getting votes based on the liberal belief.
