Ron Paul is irrelevant. I don't know why people keep posting about him.

He is far from irrelevant. He is still in Congress. We may give up hope for a Paul ticket this presidential election. But that doesnt mean we should stop promoting his name and his views so that he has a real chance in 2012. Take the time and do your research on him, he makes ALOT more sense than any MSM politician.

Agreed, except how old is he now? Just hope he is as sharp in four years as he is now. Are him and Mccain the same age? Paul is 10x as quick and intelligent as Mr. Fascism. If Paul is up for it in 2012, we can get MANY more people to vote for him. I know I will.

Ron Paul is far from irrelevant. The man has sparked a revolution. He's made folks wake up from all walks of life. His message is timeless and will not be forgotten. He is the wake up call we all needed. At least those of us who would listen. I am a richer man to have lived during his era. The history books will erase him just as the MSM have done. However, to a group of hard core patriots, he will live forever.

Edit for spelling

He is 73 years old and yes he is 10x as sharp as McCain. 77 is definately pretty old but I don't care if he was 100 as long as he is still mentally capable, he can run this country for all that I care. I am also sure he would pick a very capable VP to take over in case the unthinkable were to happen.

Ones currency only has to be stronger than everyone else's. It may not have the strength we'd like but it's better than the alternatives.

Ron Paul is not irrelevant. I have know about both Ron Paul and Larry McDonald since before Larry was killed on the KAL 007 flight shoot down on the way to Korea. Both of these men were sounding warning bells about the money system and its eventual collapse.

These two both taught that the political system ..both parties...Republicans and Democrats both... have a vested interest in inflationary debt financing of government. There is no way they are going to put light on themselves nor balance a budget. I have known this for over twenty years now.

Back in the 1980s both the Federal Reserve and Treasury ...made the statement that they got 1 dollar bills for about .02 cents. This represents a 5000 percent mark up. It does not take genius to understand that they get 100 dollar bills for the same price, .02 cents. No more paper and no more ink involved. This represents a 500,000 % mark up especially since we give up 100 dollars of our labor to get them. There is no way republican or democrat that a government making such a mark up would ever be interested in balancing a budget..no matter who is in office..no matter what levers are pulled in the booth. They have a vested interest in keeping the public ignorant of this trend...while constantly talking about doing this or that about the budget. I have known all this time that it is all hot air.

Do any of you out there make 500. 000% on any transaction??

Ron Paul as well as others who have been speaking on this subject for years ..all knew this. Larry McDonald also knew it.

Ron Paul knows that the best way to keep a government out of Mischief is to keep it broke...busted ..financially. Thus it does not have the wherewithal to enter into peoples private business affairs. Translate that as keeping a government more honest...if that is even possible.

When I saw that the famous Sean Hannity did not want to give Ron Paul any time on the air..I knew exactly what Sean Hannity is as well as Fox News. Just another shill for the two party system.

Nether McCain or Obama will change this system ..they ...as well as their respective political parties have a vested interest in continuing this to its collapse and destruction. They also have a vested interest in keeping the public ignorant.

One more historical thing of note. The historical track record is that when governments get into this kind of financial crisis..the way out is usually ...War!!! Just thought you folks might want to know this.

Thanks,
Orange

I realize that I should know better, but I know very little about Ron Paul's angles. Anyone know if he is speaking out against the banks and China counterfeiting trillions of dollars? Or the AMA drive to, not make people well, but sell them a new patentable drug? Or the massive failure of public education? Or the 'legal systems' systematic rout of actual justice, and promotion of socially acceptible lies?

As much as I would love Paul for president, he will be 77 years old in 2012. So he had better pick one hell of a VP! I understand he is in great health though.

I don't know a lot about Ron Paul, but everything that I do know I like! I highly respect him for standing up to the movements of the new world order and on issues other than Iraq he seems to be aligned with the way I see them.

I don't know how the economy is going to pan out, but in general not related to the economy I think no matter who wins this election its going worse long before it gets better.

The way I see it we have a choice between a fascist warmonger and a socialist warmonger so either way we're screwed. Sure we can all debate and fight over who is the lesser of the two evils, but do you honestly think either of them will truly be putting us first?

So I'm sitting here thinking to myself how I know everybody in America is mad, yet we all seem to be convinced that we have no choice but to go along with the way things are. I'll be the first to admit that is exactly how I feel, even though I know things will never change or get better until we really do say no more.

Wouldn't you agree that "we the people" no longer has the meaning it once did? My problem is that I think now more than ever society finally begins to see how our world really is in the ways that few people once who was thought to be crazy have been warning us about all along. Now what is now "hidden in plain sight" has been accepted because of our own personal greed. Every single one of us is guilty of that!

This is one by far, one of Ron Paul's best interviews yet




If you haven't, you all should buy his book!


You have no choice but to respect this man, especially in these times where truth is dangerous.

Yes, you did go on a tangent. Oh, and go look at who voted for the bailout. You may find that it was a high percentage of Democrats. So I guess they can share the blame, can't they?

I suggest that every one that thinks Ron Paul is correct votes for Chuck Baldwin of the constition party, Pon Paul endorsed him as his pick for president.

And Chuck Baldwin said he will put Ron Paul as head of the treasury to stop this madness. Yeah i think Ron Paul would make a great president but in actuality as head of the treasury he'd be even better in my opinion.

Remember voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil!

Ron Paul would just as soon see everyone go down the tubes than to admit that the goverment should interefere. His comments on inflation show he doesn't really have a clue. Inflation comes around with a large amount of dolalrs in circulation. Right now we have anything but. All the dollars being pumped into the system is only replacing multiples of dollars lost. We are heading for deflation, which would be worse if no money was injected. Ron Paul is only right about the Federal Reserve.

Ron Paul is a goverment hater. I do not understand why he even chooses to be a part of the goverment. "The federal goverment should have no powerand I want to be it's President." It's really pretty funny when you think about it.

The only thing that is funny is your complete lack of any understanding regarding credit, our monetary system, and inflation. It would take about 10 pages to explain it to you, but I suggest you take a basic economics course, before you try posting such a ridiculous comment again.

I love what the good doctor said regarding the bailout

"They are asking the poor to bailout the rich and the innocent to bailout the guilty"


So eloquently true!

Actually if you read the constitution that peice of paper we don't use anymore. That is exactly what is suppose to happen, the states control their own affairs. I.E. NO BIG GOV! So no not funny and yes he is right!

Ron Paul and all of us (his supporters) have, unfortunately and predictably, failed to significantly change the direction we are heading.

The real question now is, how are you going to protect yourself? The answer is to put yourself in a position to ride the wave of inflation which is coming.
