    1. age doesnt matter. we elected JFK and he was young (relatively). ron paul is a ten term senator and has plenty of experience plus a perfect voting record.

    2. the military donates more money to him then any of the other canidates including obama. he raises millions of dollars in single days. he may not have the same as the corporate sell outs but if we keep doing our part shant be a problem.

    3. if the troops are brought home they can be used for many things:

    HERE ARE REASONS WHY RON PAUL WILL NEVER BECOME US PRESIDENT;
    1) AGE. (TOO OLD TO BE A PRESIDENT OF THE MOST POWERFUL COUNTRY IN THE WORLD)
    2)DOESNT HAVE ENOUGH FUNDS( SELLS HIS BOOK AND USES WORDS CONSTITUTION AND LIBERTY), THAT WILL NOT PUT FOOD ON A TABLE FOR AMERICAN PEOPLE
    3)DOESNT HAVE A REAL STRATEGY ON EXACTLY HOW HE IS GOING TO CREATE JOBS(OK, LETS SAY WE WILL BRING ALL TROOPS HOME, THEN WHAT?) THEY ARE GOING TO BECOME UNEMPLOYED AND COLECT WELFARE?
    4) UNDERESTIMATES CHINESE POPULATION

    The government has no incentive to kickstart the economy because it cannot generate " profit" nor suffer "loss" like the markets entrepreneurs. Their investments are purely political and inefficient. This has been proved historically! Let's the market do its work and reduce the government.

    As I have described, the fatal fault of the imposed monetary system is interest; and all further faults merely result from further failure to solve inflation and deflation. The Austrians, and Mr. Paul in particular, not only advocate interest; they advocate ELEVATED RATES OF INTEREST.

    Effectively, what they want is to remove the embossed letters which now say “Federal Reserve Bank,” and replace them with “Ron Paul’s ‘COMPETING’ Bank(s)” — a principle which he refuses to debate, further define, or justify. Of course, any ostensible “competition” would ostensibly, on the contrary, drive interest rates down. But Mr. Paul tells us that we wouldn’t have borrowed ourselves into this debt mess if higher rates of interest had discouraged excessive/reckless borrowing.

    Mr. Paul has never done the math: he tells you that all of you are going to benefit somehow therefore — oh and we so willingly believe this preposterous notion, don’t we? — he tells us we will benefit paying perhaps 17% interest on our homes than 5%. Sounds really like a good idea, doesn’t it? Especially since the rate of interest is the rate of multiplication of artificial indebtedness — higher rates of which instead necessitate greater rates of borrowing to maintain a vital circulation.

    Unfortunately, most people who exalt Austrian “economics” hardly know the first thing about it. They reject math — most of which is little more than counting — as if you could understand otherwise; and they could have possibly determined solution otherwise. In no legitimate discipline or walk of life does such reckless abandonment of principle hold.

    But Mr. Hayek, God of the Austrians tells us why they advocate interest and the current banking model — which are our very problem. See Hayek’s article at Mises org: “A Free Market Monetary System,” I think it’s called. Anyway, he thus justifies interest, that it makes banking “an extremely profitable business.”

    That’s right. There IS no justification, just an outright confession of the motive.

    Your pretended reform has not yet made yourself fit to discuss (or evidently even perceive) solution, for obviously, if “inflation” and “deflation” are defined respectively as increases or decreases in circulation per represented wealth, therefore there is one and one only solution of inflation and deflation, which is to maintain a circulation which at all times is equal to the remaining value of represented wealth. This solution itself requires eradication of interest and a schedule of payment which retires principal (only) at the rate of consumption or depreciation of the related property.

    It’s impossible to solve inflation OR deflation with a gold standard. If represented wealth is less than the representative reserves, still, no precept prevents you from suffering a circulation exceeding the reserves, particularly if you further subject debts to interest. But this objection is largely only hypothetical, because generally, on the contrary, the real danger is suffering a restricted circulation (deflation). As industry and production tend to grow, you are deprived of the further circulation which you need to sustain that industry, if and when it exceeds the monetary reserves. So the more real (practical) fault is it cannot solve deflation. But even worse, is its further fault, that if it coexists with interest, it can’t solve terminal failure, or perpetual subversion of the *disposition* of the currency (Mike´s original term), that as interest inherently and irreversibly dedicates ever more of every unit of the circulation to servicing falsified, artificial debts, versus sustaining the desired industry. It means nothing to pretend solution then, unless you have answered for all three faults: inflation, deflation, and disposition.

    Mathematically perfected economy is a currency not subject to interest, comprising a debt financing all permissible enterprise, paid by each and every debtor exactly as they consume of the associated production.

    There is no inflation or deflation, as the currency in circulation is always equal to the current value of existent production across however much of the economy is supported by a circulation.

    Neither the value of money or assets are altered by changing proportions of circulation to indebted assets or services. The value of the money is always consistent in quantity — both in earnability and spendability — with the remaining value of the indebted assets which exist, for which it was issued, and which constitute its immutable value.

    The remaining circulation is always sufficient to pay off debt. Further production therefore is not impeded by a deficient circulation, deplenished by paying more than what circulation was introduced to finance the production.
    Debt is not multiplied beyond the circulation or remaining value of indebted assets. To pay debt obligations exceeding the remaining value of indebted assets sets off a perpetual cycle of re-borrowing and multiplication of debt. Merely to maintain a circulation, we must borrow again so much as we have paid beyond the original circulation which was equal only to the unmultiplied debt.

    Neither production or consumption are impeded by imposition of extrinsic cost. In every transaction, production is traded for equal production.
    So long as we make such a circulation available to production, no impediment, limitation, or inequity whatever are imposed upon production or commerce. Production and commerce are fully expedited only by a completely liquid and effectual currency.

    Mathematically perfected economy is no more than a singular prescription, dissolving unjust intervention.

      Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
      Is it hard to set up your own blog? I'm not
      very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
      I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to start.
      Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thank you

    "Anyone familiar with CCMRF? Or CBRNE? Based in Ft. Stewart, Georgia and numerous other locations in the US - supposed to focus primarily on logistics and support for local police and rescue personnel, the Army says. The key words everyone seems to have missed with these units is they are trained in situations such as "civil unrest" - so are our military troops being permanently deployed in various location within US borders? Is Obama perhaps understanding that we the people are not happy?"

      Yeah, Ron Paul has all the answers! He wants the US dollar to stay high in value so the Chinese can continue to siphon away our jobs. He is, and long has been their biggest asset in our government. He voted for Communist China to have "most favored nation" trading status. He wants to help the Chinese be able to keep their currency value as artificially low against the dollar as possible, again to help them steal as much of our nations wealth and industrial might as possible. Go ahead and ask Ron Paul what his plan is for helping us against the Communist Chinese. Let me know if you get a straight answer.

      By the way, you may have realized by now that you won't find any of Ron Paul's positions on "free trade" on his Texas Straight Talk website anymore. Surely he is not hiding from his own postion on "free trade" for his sake and the sake of Rand's campaign. No, he would never do that. Funny though, how all of the sudden that one whole section of his website doesn't work anymore. Really odd, if you ask me.

    I'm a New Zealander and have been a big fan of Ron Paul's politics for a while now ever since he debated in that fox GOP when he was running as a rebublican candidate for the presidency a few years ago. He debated valiantly, and came accross so genuine that made the others look like used car salesman. However, his political idealist views sound good in theory but in the real world it remains to be seen, as he will be fighting the very heart of corporate america which refuses to die
