    What would the big banks do if we refused to loan them our money? Removed our money from their system, took our savings out of their hands.
    We never should have bailed out GM or Chrysler, they are private firms,they should have been left to liquidate their assets and curve their spending and bonuses. The banks should have been left to colapse with wall street, instead the government puts the burden of the tax payers to bail the big bankers out. Will they be made to pay the so called bail out loans back? I wouldn't bet on that one.
    Than our young men and women are sent around the world to protect the big bankers interest, such as oil pipe line in Georgia, oil wells in Iraq, the opium fields in Afganistan. The war on drugs oh yes. But who are the true drugs lords? The government who is instructed by the big bankers on what to do to control the people. What better way for them to control us than with drugs and to make a profit from it while they control us. How many times has it been proven that the Drug cartels were part of the CIA? And when not if will the government use their cronies to start riots to install marshall law upon our nation, to try and turn us against each other. And to tax our wages with a direct tax called income tax is un constitutional. Income is derived from profit or gains, last I knew of wage was and is a compensation for our labor, not an income. Than if you check our Government buildings and our courts you will find that they fly an American military flag, which gives them the right to fall under military jurist prudence, you will find under the military flag your constitutional rights are and will be violated. The bureocrats and judges will lie and state it is an indoor flag. They are not lying on that fact though. The American flag with the gold or yellow trim on it is infact an indoor military flag. Request for the judge or bureocrat to remove the Amaerican Military flag and replace it with an American flag so your constitutional rights will not be violated not to say so they will not violate their oath of office to uphold the American constitution. We need a man like Ron Paul in office to protect our constitution. We the people need to take back our contry from the corrupt officials in office.

      I switched to a small, local credit union with 3 branches. I also converted a large portion of my savings to gold/silver. I know the price of gold/silver could go down, but I feel good about doing my part starve the beast.

    Political economic favoritism is not good when gov. interferes in this regard. However, If the gov. doesn't regulate things like derivatives, loans etc. that's not good either. So Ron Paul has many good ideas, like audit the fed, privacy rights, transparency of government & following the constitution. But deregulation is a bad idea as far as the finical system.What we need to regulate is fraud & protect the people. Other than that the government should have little to no role in economics.

    I like Ron Paul but the only thing that concern me with Ron Paul is he probably subscribes to Ayn Rands line of thinking which Alan Green Span put in practice for his entire career in the fed and got the United States into a huge financial mess, by not even regulating things like fraud. He prevented CFTC from doing its job. which in Ayn raid line of thinking is not necessary because the "market" will regulate its self. Ayn raid thinking is dangerous because it doesn't factor in human nature.

    Ron Paul sums it all up rather neatly; when will we wake up and take the tough medicine to correct our economic mistakes . . .

    Sound money or fiat currency -- which one do you have?

    This would make a brilliant introductory video for Ron Paul. In a nutshell he explains his standings, his background, his goals, and his thoughts on the current state of things, all in one video. Anyone agree?

    casander... agreed that efficiency would be better... however we have to take into consid profit margin and greed... it is a more difficult issue than you present.. the way i see it is gov place is to regulate the banks strongly and invest in serious infrastructure to lay groundwork for production. paul is right... real economy comes from savings and production, but production grows from real infrastructure such as the TVA...

    BlackOp is right. Things will not cost as much in the free market of a true libertarian philosophy. Whatever the government puts its hands into, it makes it cost more to the consumer because of the decreased efficiency at getting it to the consumer. Political favoritism towards some companies also makes things cost more such as the pharmacological companies. A bottle of vitamin C (1k pills) costs pocket change, but, if it were prescription, it would cost 100 fold more. Ron Paul 2012!!!!!

    Capital comes out of savings. Right.

    And banks don't pay spit for money deposited as savings. You can have $100,000 and put it into an FDIC insured bank. They'll pay you max 1.43%. You might as well bury it in your back yard.

    If the Fed loans banks money at 0.25%, why do they need any money from me?

    Remember when Fox used to interview this guy, with dismisive/insulting questions, the sarcasm dripping from the barely held contempt in their voices? Boy how times have changed. Fox is now licking his boots.

    at 4:17 Ron Paul hits the nail on the head. The grassroots (whether they know it or not) are rejecting Keynesian economics. Too bad others in congress do not grasp this yet.....especially the NEOs, but they are coming around many of them.

    Hold on here just a minute.

    We have to protect big pharma. Can't let a natural medicine interfere with their profits.

    and what about big oil. What would they do, how would they survive if we were allowed to grow our own fuel and be independent of foreign oil in 10 years.

    Lets not forget all the government bureaucrats who sacrifice themselves for a fat retirement after 30 years, then go back to work as a high payed consultant for the very agency they retired from.

    what would happen to the military industrial complex if we were to stop the wars. I guess those poor bastards would have to find something better to do.

    and lastly let's not forget we just have to spend billions a year of the tax payers money to keep the drug war going. How else can we save society from one of the most medicinal plants on earth.

    Oh freedom, where have you gone?

    I'd vote for him. I can't believe any sane person would call him a "gadfly" (I think that is what I heard in the video). A gadfly is a pest that livestock must endure. When I listen to him speak, all I hear is an honorable man trying to do the right thing.

      Socrates was the "gadfly" of Athens. It simply means being annoying for speaking truth, most often to power. In the 2008 election cycle he was the gadfly the media tried to ignore. Now they wish he was just the gadfly because he is turning into something much more. Ron Paul, against his very nature, is one of those few men who will greatness thrust upon him because his conscience won't let him do otherwise.

      So don't worry. In history the gadfly is just a metaphor for truth speaker. They will need something else to call him soon however because whether intended or not (and I'm quite sure not) he has become the leader of the younger generation and a voice for liberty lovers everywhere.

    Ron Paul is not afraid to tell the truth to voters. Today the O-bomb-a administration announces the recession is over (i guess their heads are up their butts) ....Ron Paul says the DEPRESSION is only beginning. I believe Ron Paul....in the meanwhile go back to sleep America.

    I remember when I heard that fraud in the White House state something to the effect that "credit is the lifeblood of our economy". No, it's not, you nitwit!! It's capital--and the fact that that jerk either doesn't know the difference or does but puts forth that propaganda tells you just the kind of gangster government we've got. I'm kinda looking forward to a total collapse so that we will have to end our military presence around the world and stop killing innocent people.

    Revenue for the government would be from tarrifs charged
    on trade with the world and the trade I mean is REAL TRADE
    not the bogus trade policies we have now that also have a deficit
    approaching 1 Trillion dollars.
    Oh YES the government survives without the Federal Income tax
    and the money making machines that are backed by nothing
    but yours and mine livelihood.
