Just received an email from Ron Paul and this man is a genius.
I have to share with those of you who do not receive his updates.

Wednesday, September 24, 2008
Dear Friends,

Whenever a Great Bipartisan Consensus is announced, and a compliant media assures everyone that the wondrous actions of our wise leaders are being taken for our own good, you can know with absolute certainty that disaster is about to strike.

The events of the past week are no exception.

The bailout package that is about to be rammed down Congress' throat is not just economically foolish. It is downright sinister. It makes a mockery of our Constitution, which our leaders should never again bother pretending is still in effect. It promises the American people a never-ending nightmare of ever-greater debt liabilities they will have to shoulder. Two weeks ago, financial analyst Jim Rogers said the bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac made America more communist than China! "This is welfare for the rich," he said. "This is socialism for the rich. It's bailing out the financiers, the banks, the Wall Streeters."
That describes the current bailout package to a T. And we're being told it's unavoidable.

The claim that the market caused all this is so staggeringly foolish that only politicians and the media could pretend to believe it. But that has become the conventional wisdom, with the desired result that those responsible for the credit bubble and its predictable consequences - predictable, that is, to those who understand sound, Austrian economics - are being let off the hook. The Federal Reserve System is actually positioning itself as the savior, rather than the culprit, in this mess!

• The Treasury Secretary is authorized to purchase up to $700 billion in mortgage-related assets at any one time. That means $700 billion is only the very beginning of what will hit us.

• Financial institutions are "designated as financial agents of the Government." This is the New Deal to end all New Deals.

• Then there's this: "Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency." Translation: the Secretary can buy up whatever junk debt he wants to, burden the American people with it, and be subject to no one in the process.

There goes your country.

Even some so-called free-market economists are calling all this "sadly necessary." Sad, yes. Necessary? Don't make me laugh.

Our one-party system is complicit in yet another crime against the American people. The two major party candidates for president themselves initially indicated their strong support for bailouts of this kind - another example of the big choice we're supposedly presented with this November: yes or yes. Now, with a backlash brewing, they're not quite sure what their views are. A sad display, really.

Although the present bailout package is almost certainly not the end of the political atrocities we'll witness in connection with the crisis, time is short. Congress may vote as soon as tomorrow. With a Rasmussen poll finding support for the bailout at an anemic seven percent, some members of Congress are afraid to vote for it. Call them! Let them hear from you! Tell them you will never vote for anyone who supports this atrocity.

The issue boils down to this: do we care about freedom? Do we care about responsibility and accountability? Do we care that our government and media have been bought and paid for? Do we care that average Americans are about to be looted in order to subsidize the fattest of cats on Wall Street and in government? Do we care?

When the chips are down, will we stand up and fight, even if it means standing up against every stripe of fashionable opinion in politics and the media?

Times like these have a way of telling us what kind of a people we are, and what kind of country we shall be.

In liberty,

Ron Paul

It is amazing to see such honesty from a politician.
I feel like he actually cares about America and it's people.
He is not trying to sell us anything, he is not trying to win anything, he is only telling us the truth no matter how hard it hurts.
What a breath of fresh air! Gives me a little bit of hope at a time of great bleakness.

Ron Paul is incredibly intelligent and has a track record of almost always being right. He is one of the best people in the US when it comes to knowing about economics. The guy is also very honest and has real integrity.

So no wonder he is no success in America. Its not the peoples fault though, its the media and the people behind it that make damn sure he is not shown much to the public.

It's tragic. He was warning about the economy at the very beginning of the campaigns. And the MSM and other candidates were laughing at him. IU remember Gulliani mocking him on the economy. The only guy with a clue was drummed out of the race. What a system. We're screwed.

Yeah, called from here, too, for all the good it will do... since I did not accompany my call with a check for a few hundred thousand $$, I'm sure they don't care what I think...

Everyone needs to read this.
Even if you have no other comment except "I agree" type it out so we can keep this hot so it doesn't get buried.
Just make sure it is a little wordier than one sentence, don't want anyone to get a warning.

Is it possible that Ron Paul join in a discussion here? That would be super.
Or is that above him... I just get tired of the elite, people need to humble themselves a bit.

Here ya go - another star and flag.
Thanks for the post.

...write in Ron Paul...

I'm not really a suporter of Ron Paul, I disagree with some of this thinking BUT.

I had to laugh when i saw a video today of Bill O'Reilly who was screaming about how no one had warned us, the American People, about this coming disaster. And that people had known, but no one spoke up loudly enough.

Someone DID speak up. Just networks like Fox didn't want to listen to Ron Paul.

You don't have to support Ron Paul to realize he speaks the truth about our economy and grasp the fact that it was buried.
Oreily is just a complete loon.

Why is Bill O'Reilly pretending to care about the American People all of a sudden? Ratings dropping or something?

Its not possible to be any more annoying and disgusting than Bill. Ok, maybe with the exception for George Bush.

Time might have ran out...
I am becoming more and more concerned about Bush's speech tonight.

Ron is truly amazing and has no fear about standing up for what is right. Unlike the rest of the muppets he actually cares about the people. If Ron was sitting in the White House, the future would certainly be bright for the American people and quite frankly the rest of the World would breathe a sigh of relief. Unfortunately people are too blinded by the media to see that. Nice work OP continue the fight!

You know I hate to say this because many will probably just call me "crazy", but what is one way to control people...and that is financially. We will be taxed extra to help pay for the wealth's mistakes? So the lower and middle class get screwed and once again the rich come off winners. One way people can be controlled is through finances. Slowly but surely many things are beginning to get staged for something much bigger. You have the North American Union which is going on and just ask random people and they never even heard of the thing!? Then you have 9/11 and well I won't touch on that very much, but those who know the truth know what I am talking about. That in itself we pretty much begged for our rights to be taken away with the Patriot Act. One way to get people to pretty much hand there rights over is by either a devastating event happen or by creating such event where people would pretty much do anything to feel "safe". When reality is we need protection from the same people we seek it from. Since then we have our rights taken, then you have the North American Union, then you have this, and there are many more things which are happening and people don't have a clue. They don't even care. Ron Paul is a hero...I personally feel he was America's last hope. We have gone down so low in the past 8 years we dug our own graves. Many have found the truth and many see that this financial collapse and its urgency for this bailout to be approved NOW seems so fishy. Yet the few that question it are trampled on by the masses who don't give a crap whats going on because as long as they sit in there living rooms with there TVs they figure everything is ok. Ron Paul I'm sure knows everything I am saying is true, but do you have any idea what they might do to such a political figure if he outright came out and said it to the masses? People need to wake up its only getting worse. The next President isn't going to make anything better....why? Well because they are all puppets run by the same people behind the veils. I am a soldier serving in Iraq and a leader asked me if I was going to vote this year and for once I wasn't scared to tell the truth. I simply replied "Let's be honest do our votes really count?". Well lets just say the leader didn't know how to reply to that. If our votes count then Bush would have never won his first term. I guess what I am saying with all of this is that this isn't just some coincidence. The few in power that are willing to fight for what America once was and it's few that care about the Country are over powered by the Masses who think otherwise. I appreciate all your posts and the people who reply. Instead of watch movies and other things here in Iraq I rather use my time learning whats happening to us and our Country. Will this bill be passed....yes. Do we have a say so in it..sadly, no. We can make our voices heard but many won't bother to listen they have to watch MTV or American Idol. It's a scary thing seeing such a once beautiful Country crashing down and not even a man such as Ron Paul can do much to save us. I admire his strength. Sorry every this is my very first post ever, so I was just venting. Take care everyone and I will continue reading your post.

Ron Paul is the reason I became politically informed. I love him dearly and I mean I really love the guy. My heart is broken that Americans are so damn incapable of seeing the treason going on time after time after time. It is the media you are right, but it is people that make up the media. It is the big corporate money that causes the media folks to be brown nosing and turn their back on their own people. It is something they will all have to be accountable for just like we will need to be accountable for losing our country. This great nation has been totally driven to its knees in 8 short years. It is like we are in a fricken nightmare. Look, Ron can not say it but if you don;'t know it by now .. there has been a plan for a long time to take away the constitution . It has been a brilliantly executed a flawless plan. It involves members of other countries and the United Nations. Look at Agenda 21 information.. You will begin to see each new phase unfold and in a very timely fashion.

There truly is no time to waste and if you are needing confirmation this is a good place to start but really just look at the new laws and executive orders that have taken our constitution away . The military commissions act .. read the patriot acts and read the executive orders. You will see .. no accountability , no one can do jack to stop them and we will not be allowed to discuss it in public or we will go to jail and anyone helping us too!!. If we do not stop this by impeach-ment... or revolt-ution, we will surely see the end of this great nation and in a quick fashion. Even if we do one of these we will be very lucky to escape without losing lives let alone sustain ourselves with nourishment. They have it all planned and they are ready.

Don't be surprised if one day you wake to a big fake alien invasion too!! . Why else would they allow some "lil" disclosure on UFO data. They want us to believe!! They need us too and we will be so damn scared that we will quickly beg for the UN military to step in and "protect" us.

Knowledge is what they don't want for us. Knowledge is power. Wake up .. tell your friends and shout it from the roof tops. Our freedom is a stake and life means more to us then to them. WAKE UP!!

The truth is out there, but can we get it to you in time. ?

I don't agree with Paul on many issues but for years he has been saying America is fast approaching the status of a police state and I'm beginning to think he's been right all along. The problem with Paul is he doesn't know how to fire up the masses, and half of his supporters scare people off.

Thanks for the post... flag and star.

That mans got a real way with words doesn't he? i would be nice to a have literate president this time around. And some one who's not going to start filling in the six foot hole we're already setting in... Its a really shame and a sad future for our country that Dr Ron Paul isn't running...

Hey.. Ron Paul should win the 10,000,000 Google Prize by suggesting a Google Government, He need to hold a press conference and perhaps change sentiment . Americans could perhaps respect him for doing so.

There is almost nothing more to add.

We have lost our government. They belong to the money lenders.

Our politico's only fear is their cushy celebrity status. It's their primary motivation to do as they are told by their constituents. And of course this only applies to the 'little guys' who won't benefit from ballot box shenanigans.

All in all, they don't count for much when they are 'whipped' by the party to 'vote as they are told' by the political machine.

Corporate America..... Do we need a new flag? A new anthem?
