    I have a question. Why should they approve to bailout the auto industry? At one time, years back the auto industry produce an all electric are that would have clearly saved the hard working consumer lots of money. Instead they stopped making the electric car and recalled the electric cars so that no one could own them. So why should we bail them out and leave our future with so much debit?

    People are voting away their Rights to Freedom!

    What will the economy even matter, if you have no freedom?!

    Please help to save our liberties, our Rights of Freedom in the Consstitution!

    VOTE for Liberty, Opportunity, & Freedom, NOT for the person who does not beieve in these things, and NOT for the person who will not stand a chance to voice any assistance to save these things at all right now!!!

    FIRST – We must save our country!

    SECOND – We can re-group & re-educate ‘the party’ IF we survive not seeing Barack Obama elected!!!

    I totally agree with Dr. Paul’s solution for our economic crisis. People are being educated like never before by Dr. Paul on many of these national issues. I think he is gaining more new support.  (CNN American Morning), It is not enough, but nice to see the national media outlets interviewing him and posturing him as a trusted consultant.   On the other issues he supports, I do know that people I knew liked him, but were scared away with Dr. Paul’s ideas that many departments of the government need to be eliminated such as Education and the IRS.  I dont recall ever hearing a “step-by-step” plan of what will result from this or the advantage to this on a national stage.  I support Dr. Paul, but as one coming into this fairly recently, I think it would attract more new people if those ideas were clearly discussed on a national stage, as Dr. Paul is becoming more of a household name. These are big steps for many people to consider, and it needs to be explained in more detail to the American people in my view.  This is not by any means a discredit to Ron Paul.

    I believe it’s more of a case of the people working in the Treasury and Federal Reserve trying to please the administration by saying it’s “all okay” when, in reality, we are in a lot of trouble.

    They knew this was coming back in Spring and of course we weren’t made aware.

    Bernanke likes to call himself an expert on the Depression, so I suppose he just assumed there was no way to stop it (if he even thought about it or realized what was happening).

    Does anyone else feel as if this is being done on purpose? It’s almost as if the administration wants the dollar to fail.

    Let’s call it the failure of Debtalism!
    A new word is clearly needed to cover this monetary fiasco.

    How have we let it get to the point where none of the candidates can discuss exactly what Ron Paul is saying? I am way more pessimistic than Mr. Paul himself because he believes that the American people seem to know what is “really” going on and that it’s just a matter of time before they wake up.

    I’m sorry but one looke at this campaign will tell you this country is so far removed from reality that nothing short of a miracle could turn it around. Our problem is cultural, not political! When our society continues falling for the same crap over and over again it is they that need to be blamed for demanding nothing more than sound bites and talking points.

    The mantra right now is that “Wall St.” is to blame and that they are encroaching on the only place left with values- “Main St.”. Please, Main St. is more culpable in all of this! at least we have always known that Wall St. was the place for money grubbing bastards. At least there was a sense of honesty in that. Main st. is the place where people drove around in monster trucks that were parked in their McMansion driveways which were paid for by funny money. And they knew darn well what they were doing!

    All these deluded Republicon’s bellowing out “free market” baloney without any clue that there is no such thing as a free market in a fiat economy! I am truely getting sick to my stomache! Mr. Paul, keep speaking there are plenty of us out here that really admire what you are doing!
