    Matt,

    What I forgot to mention is that the dollar is currently used as a standard for oil trading and the international powers like China and Russia along with the oil producing countries want to drop the dollar as the standard currency used to trade oil. This means the dollar is being devalued and if you have the same amount of dollars or more in circulation than the value of each dollar drops – inflation.

      I don’t think you understand much except what you parrot from headlines, alarmist blogs, and propagandist youtube videos. Fine. I will ignore the legitimacy of what *could* happen in favor of adhering to the original statement I made.

      If you are saying that if the dollar is no longer a reserve currency means it will be ‘devalued’, then it having been a reserve currency means the opposite HAS ALREADY occurred – it was ‘valued’. You can’t be a reserve currency and be devalued AND not be a reserve currency and be devalued. Again, you are saying that the US dollar HAS NOT “been going down for many, many decades.”

    Matt,

    The dollar has been dropping for decades, i.e. a carton of milk is more expensive now than its was in the 90′s, 80′s, 70′s and so fourth. 100,000 dollars is not worth today what it was 20 years ago. Have you noticed everyday gold hits new records and the value of the dow compared to gold is dropping, this is one way of noticing the dropping value of the dollar. His statements are rooted in fact and reason. Think about how much wealth this country would have if the fed did not every print more money, 100,000 dollars would still be worth what it was decades ago, therefore, both you and I would have more purchasing power with the same amount of money. This is how the gov’t intervention has hurt us, by printing more money and making each dollar we own drop in value over time, its not an overnight thing, it can take many many years for inflation to take effect.

      “Have you noticed everyday gold hits new records and the value of the dow compared to gold is dropping, this is one way of noticing the dropping value of the dollar.”

      Thanks for contradicting yourself so obviously. Well then sir, if the value of the DOW compared to gold is one way in which you value the dollar (which you say it is), why then aren’t you saying that the dollar has STRENGTHENED LOGARITHMICALLY over the past 200 years?

      “The dollar has been dropping for decades, i.e. a carton of milk is more expensive now than its was in the 90’s, 80’s, 70’s and so fourth.”

      OK, so do you get paid more than you did in the 1970′s? I am confused, are you saying that you get paid in 1970 dollars and at a 1970 salary and you are trying to purchase milk at 2009 prices. If it takes you 15 minutes worth of labor to purchase a gallon of milk then, and 15 minutes now (for example) how is that the value of the dollar dropping (since you like to use ratios)?

        I know the milk thing is hard to understand, but lets break it down. Milk is woth more DOLLARS now than in 1970. Its not necessaryly valued higher. So then why does it cost more when its still valued the same? Well, the medium of exchange, the dollar, has dropped in value, therfore it takes more dollars to ge the same thing – Milk. I know everyone and their brother gets paid more money now than in 1970, thats another way of noticing the value of the dollar decreasing – thats infltion. Your work is not valued more now than in 1970, it just takes more dollars to pay you for the same amount of work because the value fo the dollar is less. One dollar today will not get you as far as one dollar in 1970, so the value of the dollar is less than it use to be. This continues to occur, the dollar continues to drop in value because the fed continues to print money. Supply and demand. Furthermore, the reason the value of the dollar has not increasd in value logarithmically is becaue the number of dollars in circulation has not remained the same. For if it did then the dollar would have increased logarithmically. We have printed billions if not trillions of dollars in that time – this is one reason the FED needs to be audited. We don’t know how much has been printed therefore we really don’t know the true value of our dollar. Sad but ture.

    “The paranoid spokesman sees the fate of conspiracy in apocalyptic terms—he traffics in the birth and death of whole worlds, whole political orders, whole systems of human values. He is always manning the barricades of civilization. He constantly lives at a turning point. Like religious millenialists he expresses the anxiety of those who are living through the last days and he is sometimes disposed to set a date fort the apocalypse.”

    Looks like RP isn’t the lone voice for saving our country, just the latest paranoid spokeman to make a very good living doing so!

    So at what point do we just call a broken record a broken record?

    “But eventually, this dollar is going to quit working and then everybody is going to know what poverty is all about. ” – Ron Paul, 2009

    Wait, I know how this statement always ends! Here you go, substitute ’2010′s’ for ’1980′s’ and you will see the same thing:

    “We probably will see widespread civil disorder in the 1980′s as a direct result of our faltering economic system.” – Ron Paul, 1981

    Ahhhhhhh the sky is falling!!!! Buy gold, guns, and ammo! Eventually it will happen! I wasn’t right then, but NOW, NOW I actually mean it!!! Ahhhhhhh!

    at 4:15 he says “the dollar has been going down for many, many decades.”

    WTF is he talking about? I like how he just likes to toss out unclarified and inflammatory lies/deception like this.

    Further: “As a matter of fact, the dollar is benefiting to a degree right now because there is still a lot of dollars out there and people don’t even know where to park it, so they park it in Treasury bills”

    WTF, why is Ron Paul now questioning the wisdom of markets? REALLY Ron Paul, they don’t know what to do with their money?!?! There are ZERO other investment opportunities or vehicles out there in the WHOLE WORLD?!?!? Really Ron Paul?

    Not only that, but this isn’t a free market decision people are making that you should understand and respect? Instead people are effectively being forced to buy Treasuries with a gun to their head? NO. The free markets are doing what they do best – invest and allocate capital. If inflation were such a threat, and if a coming US Dollar armaggeddon were to occur, why wouldn’t free markets be piling into EVERYTHING except treasuries?

    I really like his ‘when markets go down its the governments fault, and when they go up it is not real and due solely to government intervention’. Heads I win, tails you lose.

    I’m not sure Ron Paul would know what free market activity is if a forward contract hit him upside the head.
