    A history, civics, and economics lesson all wrapped into one speech.

    Education is not negative, but a state-sponsored institute of re-education does produce a negative. You are a prime example, Sean.

      What? You make no sense.. Someone taking a chemistry class at a state sponsored institute will learn the same exact thing as someone taking chemistry at a privately owned institute. They will probably also use the same books.. The periodic table doesn’t change from one school to the next.. That is a prime example of how disconnected you are from the real world.

      keep hanging out in your basement, maybe you will end up like the author of conan.

      hahaha! did you actually read that article?.. why don’t you try to sum it up for me??

        Was chemistry the subject?

        You still have much trouble focusing.

          I was using chemistry as an example.. Everything you learn at one school is the same as another. That goes for any subject..

            Haha, i proved your point wrong.. They teach austrian economics at my school. You don’t know what you are talking about. Close you butt cheeks, because you are consistently a sloppy mess.

            Do you really think Obama is a tyrant? If anything he has given 90% of the power he inherited back to the congress.

      Ron Paul: “Terrorism and uncontrollable fear undermines our sense of well-being.”

      Uhhh, I assume he is referring to himself? My well-being is just fine. The master of histrionics himself – ‘UNCONTROLLABLE FEAR PEOPLE! LITERALLY UNCONTROLLABLE! I CANNOT FUNCTION IN SOCIETY KIND OF FEAR THAT TEARS AT OUR VERY SOULS AND REDUCES HUMANITY TO A PILE OF USELESS GOO THAT SOMEHOW STILL DEMANDS FOR AN AUTHORITARIAN DEMOCRACY!!! THE POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC RAPTURE IS COMING TOMORROW AND JEEZUS WE AREN’T READY SO LETS RIOT TODAY AND TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK!!’ Ron must have been in his bunker murmuring to himself and watching Gone With The Wind over and over during, say… the Cuban Missile Crisis or the Cold War or Pearl Harbor or… – his lack of knowledge about contextual history relative to the present is stunning.

      “Hysterical reactions to dangers not yet seen”

      A solid summary of him and his supporters. FYI, not everyone believes in conspiracies.

      Jeezus, talk about governing by fear. And the irony is noone has probably been more afraid over the past 50 years than Ron – while the world just continues to grow and evolve.

      Must be tough getting old and forgetful I suppose, it happens when you live in the past.

        Your handle changed, but your rhetoric is the same.
        Now if you could just get your rants to somewhat resemble reality, you might have something.

        Thx for the laughs.

          A lot of people criticize ron paul because he isn’t specific enough. We can’t just get rid of the fed and reduce the government and all of a sudden utopia will occur.

            Just look at countries in africa where the government sits back and does nothing.. Their society is boggled down by problems individuals alone can’t fix. Reducing the size of the government wont fix all of our problems. That is just foolish. I agree we should cut spending and end the wars, but that’s not going to miraculously change our entire society. We all live in our own world and in our own bubbles which are not formed by the government, but by our own independent choices.

    If the dollar gains more value than the reduction of home prices, than people will actually owe more money on their home. They will owe the same amount but in more valuable dollars.. That’s why inflation is beneficial to home owners. It’s the opposite. If I were to purchase a home, I would end up paying less and less for it because I would owe less valuable dollars, because of inflation.

          You two obviously don’t know anything about investing or entrepreneurship. You will always be the fish at the end of the hook, the “consumer” who purchases goods to try to better yourself in one way or another. You will live that life day to day with no escape, and you wonder why you have no freedom.

          Sad..

            i should of known you weren’t going to get that. you aren’t very smart “what the hell?.” The only reason why people buy anything is to improve their life. Whether you buy toothpaste to prevent from being repulsive, or a candy bar for a quick smile. It’s all artificial happiness.. If you only rely on these things for comfort, than you will be sitting on the internet complaining about lost freedoms, when you are free to make any decision you please.

            My point is.. Don’t be foolish and let ignorance dominate every aspect of your life. It’s one thing to be a sheep, and it’s another to be a shepherd.. Don’t say something just because it’s popular. Talk about things you actually know, because knowledge comes from understanding.

            There is nothing wrong with considering myself an independent thinker.

            The beautiful thing about being an independent thinker, is that I can come onto a website like this and agree with things said here.

            I was talking about liquidating assets when you tried to ridicule me and wikipedia.

            I’m tired of going around in circles with you.. Talk to me when you have an opinion on policy.

    The liquidation of debt could not keep up with the fall of prices which it caused. The mass effect of the stampede to liquidate increased the value of each dollar owed, relative to the value of declining asset holdings. The very effort of individuals to lessen their burden of debt effectively increased it. Paradoxically, the more the debtors paid, the more they owed. This self-aggravating process turned a 1930 recession into a 1933 great depression.

            Even your reply filled with pretense and arrogance doesn’t motivate me to beat that old dead horse with you.

            It has been explained to you many times over the last year.
            You are here selling something that is collapsing even as you trumpet it.

            The scam is being exposed. Just like the AGW scam and the H1N1 scam, the people just are not buying your wares anymore. More scams to be exposed soon.

            Get on back to school. It’s time for your daily programming.
