    Thanks, Nick. Just trying to get a better view of the big picture. So, in theory, Britain goes bankrupt if the Fed doesn't lower interest rates after WWI?

    Also, it appears that changes in gold supply could create huge swings in the currency for better or worse. Assume Fort Knox stores tons of gold in their coffers if we move to a gold-backed international standard. What happens if Iran nukes Fort Knox? Gold and therefore the "Amero" goes through the rough, right? What's the downside?

      I'm not a master historian so I don't know if they would have gone bankrupt, but I assume they would have went through a rescission. They certainly stopped being the world's economic leader because they spent too much.

      If the gold supply goes down then basic economics tell us that the price is going to go up. I'm not sure why the "Amero" or any other kind of fiat money would go up though. Fiat money that is not tied to any gold-standard will ultimately go down in value because you can just make more of it to dodge recessions.

      By the way, I think Iran would probably bomb something else, like Israel!

    Were we not already on a gold-standard when the Great Depression occurred? I thought that was why we abandoned it in the first place.

    I have a hard time with Paul's economic message sometimes, because it is extremely difficult to find counter-points. Are people ignoring him or just can't refute him?

      No, we were not entirely on the gold-standard. Gold was still tied to money, but the Federal Reserve used its power to lower interest rates below market value in order to help Great Britain out of their deflation problems. This had a ripple effect through-out our economy causing the disaster.

      There's counter-points, but they are all bad. I suggest reading through mises.org to learn more about Austrian theory economics.

    Nick...you may want to call 1-800-686-2237 ext. 129 if you are interested in hard gold or silver. These guys have the best prices on coins according to what I have found. They are also one of Alex Jones talk radio show sponsors so you can be sure they are legitimate. As you may or may not know, stay away from paper ownership of gold, silver or anything else paper for a back up. They will screw us all out of everything less than hard gold and silver in our possession. Watch out for Obama and his cronies as well as the totally corrupt congress to put an 80 or 90% capitol gains tax on gold and silver to discourage us from buying it. However, and probably as you know, there are always ways around thug laws like that. If you are not familiar with Alex Jones Radio show at www.infowars.com and www.prisonplanet.com be sure to listen as much as possible. Alex Jones sounds a little wild and unbelievable at first but after listening to him this past year, he has always been right on the money and tells his listeners how to document everything he says if they want to check it out for themselves. His info. is real time factual first class information that everyone needs to know and respond to.
    Hope this helps you out.

    Anyone been following the advice of Ron Paul, Peter Schiff, and Jim Rogers by buying Gold? I was thinking about purchasing the actual coins since I don't have enough money to invest with Euro Pac, but then I thought I should just buy the GLD stock through etrade. It's only 13 dollars per trade and you can get a way better deal per ounce then you can buying an actual gold coin. Anyone else doing this?

    BW, you don't get my point, only people give gold and silver value. If a farmer had a broken tractor and i needed food and had a tractor, that is real value. Gold is just like paper in that sense, people are giving it value. People us humans give gold value, but to the everyday person it really does not do much. People make it a medium. You need to think outside the box more to understand what I am saying.

    Let's say if an alien race came to earth because they needed to eat sea shells to survive, then those sea shells would be of great value to them, gold nothing. Gold and Silver are just substances of the earth. People give it value, and it could be that those with a lot of it give it value, just like the banks try and give the us dollar notes value. It's all man made value not real value.

    When some Jews tried to by thier lives by giving gold to the Nazi''s, it didn't work, it had no value for them at that sad point in time. If a nazi soldier was going to stab a Jewish person in a room, what has more value a piece of gold or a sword made of sharp steel. Get my point???

    People give gold and silver value, humans give it value as a medium of exchange, but it is just an earth substance that is not needed to sustain life. Food, Water, Shelter, etc... That is what is real value. Do you understand my point now????

    IF you do not, then I am sorry.

    Get my point???

      We get your point but you are missing THE point here. If you are going to have a monetary system it must have checks and balances. The only thing gold does is regulate the overspending and gives creditors something to "foreclose" on. It could be seashells, dolphin teeth whatever. The operation of a fiat currency has spawn a service economy of borrowers because there are no checks and balances. You cannot trust government to manage that.
      Your point is true. Food, shelter and most importantly water are the essentials we all need, this is a discussion about how to maintain value in the money system. The means to acquire those essentials. Get my point? Get my point?

    Back in the 97-98 financial crisis, asia took a rather bad beating. Even with most of its economies have trade surpluses, each individual country currencies continues to be hammered mercilessly by the likes of Soros and his hordes of blood thirsty hedge fund vampires. Some took drastic steps (such as pegging and capital controls), some beg for aids from world banks, etc etc. Asia now is in better shape thanks to lessons learnt. But we are still not immuned to the disease of the BIG APPLE. Despite uncle sam's dollar vitually worthless yet our currency depreciates against it. How is that so? How could our monies back up by the golf standards (to a certain extend) continues to fall?

    I truly think its time the world shift its attention entirely off BIG APPLE.

    Um, no you can't. Well as of today paper buys food and necessities. I never went shopping with metal. My point is that it is the same difference. Go try and buy food with a gold ring and see what happens. If the world goes to hell what makes people think that metal will buy them stuff? It's really the same difference. If you really think about it.

      The basic idea is that we need a medium of exchange which has intrinsic value (as in, people want it for itself, versus paper, which people don't generally want, except that it has been given value by monopolistic banking practices.) Gold and silver, as of now, obviously do not buy food. However, when the dollar (paper) becomes worth less and less, eventually it will be worth nothing, and in that case, people will not trade you things unless you have something of actual value (like precious metals) to offer in exchange. To comment on a gold standard discussion, you really need to have at least a basic understanding of what money is: a means of avoiding having to find a double coincidence of wants. Basically, without some medium of exchange, if you want food, you have to trade with someone who has food by giving them something they want. So, you each have to have what the other one wants. That is why gold started being exchanged: to act as a medium, so that if you have extra of something, you can trade it for gold to anyone who wants what you have extra of, and then you can take that gold and either save it, or exchange it for what you want from somebody else. Since gold is rare and can be made into larger or smaller increments (melted) without debasing its actual elemental characteristics, it (and silver for the same reason) can be used functionally as a means of exchange when the double coincidence of wants does not exist.

      The reason silver and gold are better than paper is twofold:

      one: inflation. The dollar buys less every day, and eventually, will buy nothing and will have to be reformulated, and will most likely be reformulated by an equally fraudulent note of some kind.

      two: if we ever get to the point where people are short on food, they may not accept gold or silver, but they DEFINITELY will not accept PAPER.

      Obviously, no one will accept a gold ring in exchange for a loaf of bread and some eggs and 3 lbs of bacon at the grocery store. But that's because we have adopted a fraudulent system, whereby worthless paper is exchanged and debased until its eventual death. However, if you went to a farmers market, and wanted to buy all that stuff, if you wanted to pay someone with a gold ring, and had a means to measure and weigh and value it, you would probably be able to buy what you want in relation to the ring's gold content value. However, nobody is arguing that we should start using rings as currency, so the point you made only serves to make you sound like a fool. Do some research, use your brain, and if you get it, you get it, but not everybody has wisdom; some people will live their whole lives as fools, accepting whatever system they are born into, and calling anyone with wisdom a fool. So the choice is yours; you can learn the truth and change your opinion, or you can revel in blindness, making fun of those with sight, never knowing what sight is. Choose wisely, if you can.

        You lay a pretty good argument for precious metals,but there is much more to evaluate than what could be done in just one page.Such as who owns it /who wants it/for what reason/what else is happening in the world that may trump it/what the imf or world gov is doing monitarilly/the economy/flow of wealth/dubai etc.and much more.so please lets not call people with questions blind fools.because looking at the current value drop,it would seem like 99% of the world disagrees with you.(and that should matter to your plan)

          The current value drop has nothing to do with intrinsic value; it has only to do with spot prices. Future prices for un-mined gold with limits on purchasing. That is called manipulation. Keeping the buying interest down, to suppress the price through regulation. Banks which own a large portion of the world's gold can also lease and sell gold to each other, keeping the price down, making the dollar look good.

          All you have to do to understand the value of gold is look at what is happening to the price of actual hard gold right now. It's anywhere from 10-15% over spot price. Gold as valued against d fraudulent currency is a bogus estimation, so you won't convince me with an unresearched argument.

          The 99% of the world that disagrees with me have no understanding of money, and the idea is, you change that through a little less involvement in foreign affairs and a little more free trade within our borders. And education.

          Also, you said: " so please lets not call people with questions blind fools."

          I didn't call anyone with questions a blind fool. I called anyone who accepts the system they are born into WITHOUT questioning it a fool. The guy I responded to knows nothing of what I am talking about, and you seem to concerned with the rest of the world. There's more to this than just changing the currency to gold and silver, obviously. If you want a global system, it will never happen; the people who want to run that have already decided that.

    Ron Paul is correct in asking Ben and as expected Ben wouldn't answer. I have called and written to other politicians regarding this and the "bail-out" which didn't work. I did inform them I wouldn't vote for them if they voted for the bail out and I didn't vote for any of them because they have not listened. Now, as I have said for some time, if you can get your hands on gold or silver and hold on to it, you will be smart. The banks (Goldman, etc) are holding the prices down and we are just in waiting for it to blast off. Look at jsmineset.com and read what Jim has to say, go to silverseek.com and read as much as you can, these folks are not dumb to what is happening. You can hardly get your hands on small sums of gold or silver now. If you have gold or silver you can get premium prices above "spot", there is a reason people want it. Call Ron Paul's office and ask them. I have talked to Ron's office, I could only wish he were in my area so I could have voted for him (I did a write in but they do not count). If you think it is bad now just wait and see...Best wishes for your future.

    Gold, Silver, Bronze, have no real Value. People give it value like paper money. Food, Energy, Water, that has real value.
    So I don't think Gold or a metal is the total answer. If you have no food or water and lots of gold you will die. People give those metals value just like paper money.

      With metals you can buy food and necessities. If you are smart you cover your rear, have assets (metals and land - paid for), have food to last for more than a few days. Paper is just that paper that can burn up, it has little value and will have less as times go by....

    I won't claim to know everything, but I think DigDoug is off base.

    I can't argue with the fact that bringing up the gold standard losses the audience.

    Who determines what algorithm will be used, and for how long, why not change the algorithm? Who will define and audit? The FED? our current (or new) administration?

    Who will determine the top 5%, and of those making the determination, why not 7% or 10% (or what ever other %).

    Then, those making that determination find major corruption, but can cover it up, making billions (if not trillions for themselves - not just that day, but each day forward).

    We need a concrete money supply and if Hoboken discovers 100 billions pounds of gold, they will use that gold to further the free market (although an argument can be made that Hoboken will have huge impact - Hoboken will still be part of the free economy).

    Want more stability in the market, want stability of inflation and debt? Then base a currency on hard assets (gold, silver, bronze, etc.) and have the money based on those assets controlled by a government for distribution at no interest from that government.

    Our economy is in trouble because there has been excessive regulation since ~1913.

    Thanks,

    WHAT, NOT RADICAL ENOUGH FOR YOU...WHAT ABOUT THIS ONE?

    I say we take the top 5% wealthiest people in the world, take all that they have in their possession and throw the entire family trees in prison. We then perform full investigations and audits to uncover all the wrong doing.

    I would bet pretty much anything that the top 5% in the world are either corrupt or born into corruption...either way it frees up some cash for the system.

    PSYCHO BABBLE!!!!
    This is what people think when they hear Ron Paul. His platform as it relates to the constitution is very sound and very patriotic.

    Anytime that anybody brings up a GOLD STANDARD you lose your audience. Basing a currency on a finite resource is not even funny as a joke. Imagine for a moment that we go to a gold standard and then some small company finds out they are on top of 1000 tons of gold...now middleofnowhereville becomes the richest nation on earth? or simply the soviet union with endless stockpiles of gold, oil and diamonds simply purchases the planet?

    _____ BASING CURRENCY ON FINITE RESOURCES IS FOR THE DARK AGES ___

    We need FIAT, we need made up algorithms, we simply need them to be defined and monitored and audited.

      Fiat currency means politicians have freedom to issue as much money as they want with no limitations. The federal reserve takes an income from the interest they charge and BUY GOLD. it is sitting under New York City. Why would the Federal Reserve buy gold? because you are right or because you are wrong.?
      A currency backed by something anything gives it value, restricts supply and limits governments spending habits.
      Also, countries that lend us "money" have no recourse when we default on the ballon spending and continue to devalue the currency. It's that simple, Doug the dope

    I've read the above blogs, and almost everyone makes sense. I have not heard Bernanke a lot, so this may be misplaced, but did you hear the waver in his voice as he presented his "facts". Although RP put Bernanke on the spot, RP could have concluded his initial question a little better.

    I've joined several "meetup groups" in my local area. But, I must admit I RSVPed "no" to tomorrows event because of a conflict with my sons Cub Scout meeting. We all have busy lives, although some of the time may be wasted on the "idiot box", to a greater extent I personally have a very busy life (a good part of that goes toward filing taxes, keeping records for my business [government requirements], etc., etc.). I have been saying for years to my relatives and friends that it is the plan of the people in charge to keep us occupied (it used to be from noticing the fact that "they" keep putting "their" hands in our pockets) but lately it "they" have greatly expanded.

    I love Ron Paul and am very familiar with Austrian economic theory. My only criticism is in Paul's delivery, which seems to be directed at those who already understand the intricacies of sound money. My advice would be for him to adopt a clearer, simpler, and better organized message. Paul is the only person out there who is taking on the real entrenched establishment. He needs to simplify his message to reach the average citizen.

    Ron Paul knows as well as most reading and posting to this page that all this so-called bail out amounts to is a "dog and phony show". It's designed to destroy the middle class by sucking up all our assets before they "formally" crash the dollar and world economy to complete the mission of a global elite international banker take over to enslave the entire planet. One of these days I hope to see every one of the Bush cabal and the elite right up to the witch of England tried for international war crimes and then promptly sentenced. They are all genocidal trash of the worst kind. With regard to president Kennedy's executive order 11110, he was murdered by the thugs of the so-called federal reserve for issuing that order which kicked them out of the counterfeiting, public rape and pillaging business but his order is still very much active. It's just that no one in this criminal no good government of ours has the intestinal fortitude to do anything about it. They are all traitors, criminals, cowards and just a mob of reprehensible scum in general.

    I will watch the movie, although I am a Christian and not too fond of that being referred to as myth.

    Although I feel infowars has some legitimate information to offer, those referred to as "conspiracy theorists" have no credibility with the general public, and therefore those who try to make serious change evoking that stuff are brushed off as a bunch of nuts. It's like throwing the baby out with the bathwater, if you know what I mean. Therefore, I think it's important to offer sources that the general public will have more trust in.

    well obviously ben bernanke is lying on that video (and all the time, for that matter)! you can see it in his eyes when he is replying to ron paul. as is henry paulson when he comes out and does his jaw jackin'. these 2 characters along with the Bushes, Rockafellers and Rothschilds are taking Americans to the cleaners while maintaining an "everything is going to be alright...you just gotta' give it some time (and another trillion dollars)" attitude (which is obviously a front).

    but this plan is nothing new and these result are the results of a plan that's been in the works since george bush senior became president back in 1981, oh yeah right... i meant ronald regan. but if we believed that lie, i guess we can believe that paulson, bernanke and bush jr. are sincere about helping America/Americans out.

    and i, also have a question...
    what ummm...happened to all that uhhh...GOLD that disappeared from the world trade center basement on Sept. 11 2001 (did we forget about that)???

    everyone should watch "zeitgeist", "zeitgeist adendum", "the money masters", "911 in plane sight" and "loose change".
    after you watch these movies, read, learn and know your constitution (all of it!) and then put the practice of the second amendment into practice.

    i hear a lot of people always asking "why/how..did all of this happen?", and it makes me sick!
    here's why and how. everybody is too busy investing ALL of their time and attention on "dancing with the stars", "american idol", "the sopranos", "sports", "celebrity gossip shows or tabloids (i mean, do you think that angelinna being the most talked about celeb in the media and her being a U.N. embassador is a coincidense?)", etc... devoting their lives to the idiot maker (tv).

    you really want to help your country?
    turn off the TV and go read something of importance.
    start with the constitution. NOW!!!
    you're online already.
    it's not like you have to drive somewhere to purchase a copy of it.
    it's free, and you can do right from that chair you're siting on.
    google "CONSTITUTION" now!

    when john f. kennedy said, "..."ask" what YOU can DO for your country", he meant for you to "find out/learn" what you can do for your country, to help America stay the great country that is it, if not better.

    we can not just put all the responsibility on one person, we all have to act.
    ron paul can only be our light. it takes us to see, learn and want things to get better.
    let ron paul serve as our inspiration of how to be, what knowledge to thirst for and what actions to take.

    but i guess some of us are all to lazy and brain dead from watching "survivor" t do anything.

      It seems interesting to me that inspite of the HUGE scam the central bankers are perpetraiting, and the HUGE lies they are telling to pull it off, the only people who are rallying in the streets are those offended by the same sex mairrage ban in Cali.
      Fractional banking has reached its end and our economy is collapsing. People are losing thier jobs and thier homes. Central bankers are giving themselves billions. In collusion with our coorupt administration they are giving companies they are mojority share holders in ( Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America ) billions of dollars. Money we as tax payers owe......WITH INTEREST. Its genious really. Genious and EVIL.

    Too bad there isn't a requirement for those holding office to go over the Constitution and their oath on a regular basis. I think they should have to say the Pledge every day! Do you think that would help! Maybe they don't realize there are constituents who are relying on them to uphold that Constitution.

    I agree with Texmom! Too bad Ron Paul can't fire up Congress.
    There is so much going on that I've heard even a lot of congress isn't aware. Nobody I know believed there was a potential for a North American Union or a NAFTA super highway. You would think that would get a lot of press. It has probably had more press in Canada.

      that zeitgeist movie is half truth, half lies.. therefore it's called consipiracy. Here's a website that broke it down word by word checked the sources and provided all the referances. You might want to read this before you watch the zeitgeist.

    I agree that apathy is going to kill this country if we can't fire people up, but I think people are at a loss as to what to do. I think Ron Paul has the ability to fire people up, but I think a lot of us feel somewhat helpless in how to further proceed. The media manipulates our elections, and if we don't feel represented....what can we do? I also think people need some basic education in knowing the constitution, so the majority of voters will be aware when unconstitutional things are being passed.

      Its up to us here. I am putting together a website that is not yet up called republicratssuck.com I believe that our founding fathers fears that partisanship would tear our country apart have come true. Doesn't it seem like all this stuff has to be intentional? After the election, which I refused to vote for McCain even though he may have been the slight lesser of two evils I did not know what to do. I don't know what I expect to come about from this, but I cannot do nothing. Join me?

        Scott,

        For the first time in my voting history, I voted third party. Since I couldn't vote for Ron Paul, I followed what he suggested.

        I've been calling it the Dem/Rep party, it's pretty much looking much the same these days, going for global government and forgetting we have a Constitution, just doing what they want.

        RonPaulforPresident2008.com has fabulous information. Everyone in the country should see that information.

    We've also heard they have to devalue the dollar to the peso so the North American Union can proceed with its own money, just part of the plan.

    And if things become bad enough I guess
    the citizens would happily accept a more global World Bank solution.

    What ever happened to the gold that was supposed to be backing our money once upon a time. I heard it was "removed" from Fort Knox. I think a lot of people still believe that there is gold backing our money.

    Can you enlighten us?

    Thanks for info.

    Ben Bernanke holds the majority of his assets in annuities, google it and you will see. The Federal Reserve owns lots of gold. The point here is the Federal Reserve system allows for the bank to purchase gold as the country debases the dollar. We lose they win. The public is in for a real shock, just as Thomas Jefferson warned about a centeral banking system. I talk about it everyday on my radio show in Philadelphia.
    The meltdown valuses of todays coins versus those minted prior to 1965 tell the story. 3 cents for the coin dollars of today and 7.91 dollars for the silver dollar of 1965 and earlier. The looting continues.

        Brian,

        Been out of pocket for awhile. Will check out your show tomorrow - thanks. Do you head an investment firm. I am looking for strategies for my money. I like Peter Schiff and his philosophies, but feel a very strong sense of urgency.

    Does it really matter what anyone thinks regarding the actions of the banking cartel? It seems as though they do whatever they choose to do with the interests of the economy having no influence on their decisions. I would suggest that it is a case of i'm alright jack and knobsticks to everyone else.

    Bernanke always dances around gold. Its obvious that he does not like Ron Paul because Bernanke knows he is telling the truth, but Bernanke cannot say I agree with Ron Paul because it would cause a major panic of people changing there dollars over to gold if he ever said the dollar is having issues, but I promise you Ben Bernanke owns plenty of personal gold. He would be a fool not too!

    It's nice to know the world central banks organize their gold transactions in order to manipulate world gold prices.

    Ron Paul hit the nail on the head about why they are dealing in gold if the fiat currency model is in fact not broken.

    We'll see a world currency faster than people anticipate... 2015 at the latest.

    Most likely a North American currency will be a prelude in 2010 and then role over to the world currency when we unite with the Euro.

      I think the Amero is right around the corner. The Feds will never admit to anything they are doing. After all, should a thief tell you when they are comming to rob you? Absolutly not. That takes away from the effect of being a thief.

      Hopefully, if we do go to a new currency, the leadership of this country will use that as an excuse to circumvent to Federal Reserve. And the government itself will begin printing it's own money.

      Read "The False Profhet" by Ken Klien. You will become frightened by the current events.

      We are being robbed by our government and we continue to sit by and watch and say... Good Golly we're mad. when are we going to get mad enough to do something?

      If I give GM money, I want my car. JP Morgan has been pushing for the "New World Order". For 100 years. American's please get angry.
