You are correct in that all of the other candidates are regurgitating Ron Paul's ideals but other than stating it, you fail to show us where or how
his ideals on solving our economic policies aren't "new" or different.
Allow me to enlighten you with regards to Greece.
The Greek government borrowed themselves into oblivion. Unable to service their debt, they did what any insane group of people would do: borrow MORE
money and plunge the country into FURTHER debt. Shockingly, they were unable to support this additional debt burden. How strange that the solution
to a debt crisis is NOT MORE DEBT. Sound the least bit familiar?
Youre also correct in saying that the International banksters colluded with the corrupt politicians in Greece to impose "austerity", guaranteeing the
repayment of bank loans on the backs of the Greek people. However, you are absolutely WRONG in saying that this is in anyway similar to Ron Paul's
Bush, then Obama signed TARPS 1, 2 and 3. These funds guaranteed that the banks would not fail. Who got stuck with the bill, you guessed it, we did.
Exactly like Greece, the banksters have been guaranteed payment.
Ron Paul said NO to the bank bailouts under Obama AND under Bush. Ron Paul suggested that we NOT payback the banksters. Ron Paul is advocating that
the American people should NOT be liable for our government's insane debt burden.
And as Paul himself commented recently: "We owe, like, $1.6 trillion because the Federal Reserve bought that debt, so we have to work hard to pay
the interest to the Federal Reserve," Paul said. "We don't, I mean, they're nobody; why do we have to pay them off?"
As much as you are dying to maintain a failed welfare state, I've got some really terrible news for you. Much like the warfare state, it is not
sustainable. Those who are working and who pay taxes and who are trying to prevent the loss of what little they have left, refuse to support a
hundred years of failed government programs which have destroyed this nation.
