Wow!

www.charlotteconservative.com...



In what can only be described as a huge victory for the libertarian wing of the GOP, word is leaking out of Washington that Congressman Ron Paul of Texas is about to be appointed Chairman of the Financial Services subcommittee. The committee has near complete oversight of the Federal Reserve.

The main thing I worry about with Ron Paul is that he has a problematic view in favor of a gold-backed currency. Otherwise, I'm in heaven

jeanius!
man it would suck for a few months, but then we could right the ship.
we are heading to disaster now, there is no avoiding it.

its like jumping into the cold ocean. you know its going to be cold, but in 2 minutes you will be used to it and then riding the waves and having fun.

so if people woke up and realized the economy is a scam, then it would suck for a bit, but then in a year people would rejoice at how much better it has become.

I am extraordinary exciting to hear this! Ron Paul is the only Congressman who actually follows the Constitution. Go get them, Ron!

Best news I've heard all day!

You nailed it dantanna! Things would stink for a while, but we would all be so much happier with the long term results. The way we're headed now is certainly the wrong way!

what Girl Genius said

Gold is the commodity side of the fiat currency coin.
debt being the flip side
A PUBLICLY OWNED FED is the only solution.
No more debt money.
The Tally Sticks of Britain model
or the medieval Venetian bank model
of currency creation
were both preferred over gold in their day
and were destroyed by machination in order to instal what we have got.
Just as the fed was installed int he US in 1913.
I know he knows this

but this is still a
yay
and we will see

PS
of course though as we just heard, congress is rigged

Bank notes were invented because they were lighter than carrying around sacks of gold.

Somewhere a guy with a vault full of other people's gold decided to write loans to people against gold he had.

Then he decided to write loans against other people's gold in his vault that wasn't his.

Then we come to now.

is this an attempt to keep Ron Paul busy from running for president in 2012?

You're right, chiponbothshoulders
Now he's decided to write loans against gold that is in OTHER PEOPLE'S vaults!

doesn't anyone realize this is all just a setup following a planned timeline

they will 'fix' the FED and introduce the Amero, that they've had in the works for years, as the replacement currency

Of course, one should be suspicious of all politicians. I am not worried about the Amero. Paul is against that. I am, however, worried about a gold-backed currency. I expressed the fear, some time ago, that they are using Paul because of his stance on gold. However, I also think Paul will try to do the right thing. His voting record shows that. Yes, it could be that he is a shill. More likely they will try to play him to push a gold-backed currency, which would leave them holding all the cards as they own a disproportionate amount of the metals. We'll see how it pans out - just try to cover your bases and hang on to your hat, we've just about reached the top of the first drop when it comes to the economy...

they will definately use Paul to the best of their abilities... personally I think he's one of the best we have working for us

I also don't like the idea of going back to a gold standard for a few reasons

1) the fiat credit system we use now(in my opinion) actually works
how many of us have gone to friends or family and asked to borrow $20 for a few days until you get your next paycheck? thats basically the same principle that drives any loans that have been approved in the past
however if everyone paid off their debts, it would affect the strength of the dollar

the problem is more about interest being placed on the money the FED 'creates'
thats BS

2) they bought so much gold in the past 100 years, that if we did end up back with a gold standard, they are still in power, being that they can control what gold is released for sale to the governments for currency backing

If you believe that Ron Paul has earned the right to chair that sub committee. Call Rep Boehner and tell him what you think !! This is still America....for now... 1-(202) 225-6205
