If there’s one thing everyone can agree on regarding Ron Paul it’s that he understands the danger posed by the banking cartel better than anyone in DC. This is a great article by RP slamming the FED for manipulating currency and creating the economic turmoil we're facing. There's really nothing new exposed in this article but it sure is refreshing to hear a man who is running for president discussing this openly!


The financial crisis has fully exposed the intellectual bankruptcy of the world’s central bankers.
Why? Central bankers neglect the fact that interest rates are prices. Manipulating those prices through credit expansion or contraction has real and deleterious effects on the economy. Yet while socialism and centralised economic planning have largely been rejected by free-market economists, the myth persists that central banks are a necessary component of market economies.


He goes on to describe how they have pumped trillions of “easy” dollars into the economy through inflationary monetary policy creating yet another bubble. What’s their solution to the bubble? More money, of course!



Not content with its failed attempts to prop up the US economy, the Fed has set its sights on bailing out Europe, too. Through currency swaps, it has committed to offering potentially hundreds of billions of US dollars to the European Central Bank and we cannot rule out the possibility of direct intervention.
The Fed’s response to the crisis suggests that it believes the current crisis is a problem of liquidity. In fact it is a problem of poorly allocated investments caused by improper pricing of money and credit, pricing which is distorted by the Fed’s inflationary actions.



When this bubble will burst is anybody’s guess but this certainly isn’t going to end well because their actions are making the problem worse. With the surprising election results in the EU this week one can only expect things to begin unraveling at a faster pace. As long as the banking cartels are calling the shots there is little hope for a solution.


Control of the world’s economy has been placed in the hands of a banking cartel, which holds great danger for all of us. True prosperity requires sound money, increased productivity, and increased savings and investment. The world is awash in US dollars, and a currency crisis involving the world’s reserve currency would be an unprecedented catastrophe. No amount of monetary expansion can solve our current financial problems, but it can make those problems much worse.

I'm not sure we'll see RP as POTUS but one thing is certain, he's the only man who truly understand the deeper problems with the FED or has the stones to take them on. I have no reason to believe Romney would.

ONly way to a sound currency is to go back to the gold standard, or remove fractional banking.

The last two Presidents who tried to manipulate currency back to control of the Government were Lincoln and Kennedy. See what the banksters had done to them.

Paul is the only one that understands economic policy, Obamney does NOT. The same guy that yelled at me years ago and said we will NEVER have a black president just bet me 50 bucks that Paul wouldnt even get the GOP nomination,,I BET HIM,,personally I dont see how Romney can win...Especially since 120 people just showed up in Ohio to see him,,the guy has ZERO ground support and if he does have some, they are old unenergetic people.

You're right that Romney certainly doesn't have an energized following like RP. Then again, nobody does!! RP has a cult-like following for sure. I've said before that I admire Paulites because at least they have a candidate they're fired up about. 

I also think that regardless who gets the republican nomination, that candidate will enjoy huge support against Obama once the race begins.

Yea, and this time around we have electronic voting which is already proven to be riggable, and has already been done with diebold in the 2000 & 2004 elections.

The elite of this country will pull any trick they can to make sure RP doesn't become president. The only way a change will happen is if he has an overwhelming majority, and the people call shenanigans when he doesn't win...and revolt.

If not, same ole same ole!


As for the crisis becoming more unstable/destructive this cycle around...well, duh! The problems weren't addressed, or solved...they were amplified.

this is an idea conflict not personality conflict so its not personal!!!!!

OK seabag,
put up or shut up on the FED.
This is stuff designed by Financial Engineers for reasons we the common people dont have any understanding about.
It is for this reason people would due to lack of confidence in something else, panic with the onset of attack of the FED.
By that very nature, the fear of the unknown, that We the People will continue to reject Ron Paul and why opposition of Paul be successful at discrediting him.

The put up or shut up is,THEN WHAT?....The United States is very close to following the course of Greece of even Egypt because its very vulnerable to Band Wagon Knee Jerk reaction...

Its only going to take a few more Naive People to tip that boat. Yeah, I have said bring it, but,,,

THEN WHAT............what is the alternative?

put up or shut up....its a dilemma, isnt it....and a very real one with some very real consequences

Just a sidenote...

I think we are on this kind of path that is like a step-stone walk across a raging river.

Each step offers less and less foothold... and as we get into the middle of the crossing, they almost disappear altogether under the current.

How good is our footing, is the question we should ask and then, how do we make it better?

They likely don't know where I stand. For the record, my favorite candidate has left the race. RP's foreign policy (particularly closing bases) and his stand on allowing states to decide about legalizing hard drugs like heroin are non-starters for me. I don't think there's anybody else I agree with more on economic issues than RP, I just can't get past the other two issues. 

I like the guy, I'd just rather see him as Sec. of Treasury or even VP. He's got a lot to offer in the right position.

If there where any truth to this country then the d**n borders would have been sealed along ago!!!!!

I think you’re right that TPTB are playing on our ‘fear of change’ and lack of trust in politicians who want drastic change (most are rightfully shell shock after the ‘Hope & Change’ of 08’ that never transpired). They use that fear to paint RP as a loon and scare people from supporting him.


The put up or shut up is,THEN WHAT?....The United States is very close to following the course of Greece of even Egypt because its very vulnerable to Band Wagon Knee Jerk reaction...

It’s a dilemma I struggle with DAILY!

I KNOW RP is the only person (when we have to chose between RP, Romney and Obama) that isn’t married to big corporations or radical interests and I know he’s the only one who has the STONES to go after the TRUE 1% (Illuminati, Bilderberg, NWO, etc). I’m just scared that it will swing the country WHY TOO FAR to the other end of the spectrum…so far that it goes PAST where we need to be (sane and civilized).

What are your thoughts, Rebel? Should I fear the foreign policy and legal drugs (you know damn well if he turns it to the states you’ll be able to buy coc aine at 7-11 in Cali) or should I take a chance on that and go for the only guy who will go afte the NWO?

My fear is that if he really did take office he’d be a dead man in months…like Kennedy. At least then I’d know it was the right decision putting him there and ALL BETS WILL BE OFF at that point!! Time for some Un-civil war!!

I highly recommend his book Liberty Defined if you have not read it already.

I can't wait for Ron Paul to become President of the United States, such a brilliant man.

Paul is great on his fiscal
policies..

I would have to agree with him,
I believe what this admin and his
buddies want is the next crisis
to be worst so they can play on it
and peoples emotions..

The bankers only want one thing,
to make more money. Be damned
anyone getting in their way,and if you
do, might end up dead..

Besides the whole putting the blame on banks instead of capitalism as a whole, It sounds like something a marxian would claim.

Thanks!


I've asked before if there are more resources out there to better understand his position on Foreign policy (my major contention with RP). Does this address that subject in depth?

Capitalism works fine with honest people and proper oversight by actual representatives (which we’re lacking in many cases).

Give me some more info because I don’t know why you think that sounded Marxist or why you think capitalism is to blame for the problems we face.

Maybe you’re unaware that there is a difference between capitalism and the bastardized form of crony capitalism (corporatism) we have now.

a change in drug policy would change what really, same people using will still use.same people manufacturing would still manufacture....Mexican Cartels maybe but they would move to a different cause.

seabag: I am cynical to any of the above...we drifted from our constitution and there is also a vacuum of humanity ...we shutter at what would bring back humanity.

I dont have answers or solutions...maybe start by dropping partisan quibble, stop writing new laws for this and that,,,,profile a little more and molest old and young women less at the Airport. If we step on some toes say I am sorry instead of inclusion of any idea that comes down the Pike. War less but if they want a war with us "Bring it Baby"

I grasp the concept of govern less but can Americans live with the responsibilities of that....I think we are still a little worried about bringing a bucket of chicken and a movie home for the kids and lining up a bed partner for the night to be a responsible America, if you want to know what I think.


ETA: seabag, looking a little silver, way to go!!!!

Despite i do think its the case, i have no interest in defending that capitalism is to blame.
What RP said just reminded me of how for marxists, capitalism is inherently prone to increasingly severe crises. en.wikipedia.org...
