    I was here. This was a great speech, and I hope Dr. Paul gets a better chance in the Republican Party in 2012. He's a true conservative, and as a member of the supposedly conservative party, he deserves a better shot at leading the Republicans.

    Ron Paul's "End The Fed" quote: "Ending the Fed would be THE SINGLE GREATEST STEP we could take to restoring American prosperity and freedom and guaranteeing that they both have a future." If our Congressmen cannot see & move to that END then they need to be voted out. No Exceptions.

    Austrian & Keynesian Theories Vs. Mathematical Facts

    George Orwell’s classic 1984 describes “doublethink” as holding two contradictory beliefs simultaneously and accepting both. To do so denies the existence of objective reality. A good example is the belief in economic theories that contradict mathematical facts.

    Both Austrian and Keynesian economic theories hold fundamental beliefs that do not square up with math. The exponential growth of debt in our debt based money system is ignored and refuted by both theories. In place of math, we are offered beliefs such as the “quantity theory of money.”

    To deny the exponential growth of debt cuts to the very core and credibility of monetary theories. If the exponential growth can be proven, then equally, Austrian and Keynesian theories are dis-proven. Economic theories hide the fact that a debt based money system is usury by definition and neither Austrian nor Keynesian theories are sustainable. Both systems create bankruptcies and defaults while enriching banks at the expense of the people.

    The inherent and terminal mathematical flaw of debt based systems can be proven anecdotally. Our total money supply (M3) is around $15 trillion while our national and private debt total around $55 trillion. How do we pay an existing $55 trillion in debt with a total of $15 trillion? We are short $40 trillion, where will that money come from?

    In our debt based monetary system there is only one way to add money and that is through new debt. Eventually, the $40 trillion must be borrowed. If the money is borrowed, it will add new debt of over $40 trillion (principal + interest). The debt can only grow, it can never be repaid as the gap between money and debt will continue to increase.

    The two economic theories will try to explain away this reality by claiming that the velocity of money can be increased so that a given amount of money can be used for more transactions. This is true when we spend money but it is not true when we repay debt. When debt is repaid it is extinguished, that is that the money ceases to exist which means that money can only be used to repay principal debt once. Most of the interest debt returns to circulation but never the less, the gap between money and debt will still increase since only the principal is created through new debt which brings new interest.

    The specie of money doesn’t matter. If our money were backed by gold, the gold would simply be transferred to those who collect the interest. We saw this in 1933 when the gold standard collapsed and we lost most of our gold.

    The two prevailing economic theories give us a false sense of choice just like the two party system of Democrats and Republicans. The science of money has been replaced by a belief system just like in the dark ages when science was dominated and defined by religious beliefs. If the next renaissance is to happen, it will come when the science of money displaces unfounded beliefs.

    We are suffering from an intellectual amnesia. The Babylonians of antiquity understood the destructive power of debt interest and at one time Christianity and Judaism forbid it as sinful usury. The Islamic faith still forbids debt interest and perhaps that is a reason that we are clashing.

    Our interest based monetary system is a form of usury that will result in the transfer of all wealth from the many to the few. The intended outcome is debt slavery and tyranny under the cruel boots of oligarchs – a financial aristocracy.

    People are becoming discontent and they sense that something is terribly awry. To rebel against the status quo invariably leads to another tyranny as we have seen through democratic elections and third world rebellions.

    If a successful peoples revolution is to happen it will really be an awakening. A higher consciousness where we come to understand how and why the game has been rigged by flawed monetary theories.

    Note: For real solutions stop by Mathematically Perfected Economy, Mike Montagne- discover the difference between irreversable multiplication of debt by interest and interest free money – take the red pill.

    Ron Paul is just amazing. I voted for him and unfortunatly he didn't get elected to represent the Republicans. If Ron Paul was elected our nation would most likely being growing into a super power like it once was. Vote for Dr. Paul so we can gain our freedom once more!!!!!!!

      We don't need to be a super-power. We just need to be safe, free, and out of debt. If we stopped weakening our defense while making enemies when we stretch our military thin across the globe, if we instead traded more freely, retracted our permanent bases in Europe and Asia and our forces in the Middle East, if we rose out of debt so we no longer depend on China and exported more than we import, we would no longer rely on offense for defense. If other states depended more on us for trade, they would be less eager to attack, and it wouldn't be as necessary to instill fear through invasion. Even if non-state actors like Al-Qaeda continue to seek our downfall, building a strong defense at home and would be sufficient to protect our state.

        Hi Lilia,

        As long as they will charge interest over OUR money (backed by gold or not) we will always be in debt! It´s the interest darling

        All banks must go...We do not need banks.........Banks and everyone supporting them are OUR problem.

        Great post Lilia, and great response Jack. I've put a lot of time into doing exactly what you just did here as well and it worked, magnificently, and is in fact how we gained the benefit of Truthseeker's involvment in the effort who has turned out to be one of our most staunch allies and effective promoters and defenders as well.

        Lilia, here's something which you and every single person in America can do right now today, in order to begin reversing the cycle toward our own benefit:

        http://www.ronpaul.com/on-the-issues/fiat-money-inflation-federal-reserve/comment-page-68/#comment-139472

        Every single person participating in the effort will be equally responsible for it's success as those creating it as one cannot be accomplished without the other. Of the People, by the People, and for the People.

    An Austrian/Paulian individualistic anarchist-capitalist society without a state and where the money represents gold cannot long continue to function on that basis. There will soon come a concentration of power in which a small group of powerful individuals (oligarchs) take all the power because they have more gold than the rest.

    A private bank or a George Soros will become the actual power of a state and build a private army to protect its interests. This will lead to a power struggle among the oligarchs until a few of them are in control. There is nothing to prevent this because all individuals with less capital and less power will be employed by the oligarchs out of self-interest, or develop criminal activities out of frustration and needs.

    Ultimately, you will have a feudal society. And ultimately this will change into a different form of society. Ideal societies do not exist and people will always try to do things out of self-interest, and there will always be people who fight for power and control.

    But Mathematically Perfected Economy solves an important issue, because capital is accessible to everyone without interest if he / she are creditworthy and with the collateral as backing (our labour and produc(tion). This will push the capital oligarchs out of the game and they cannot impose their will by just having capital, and therefore gain unlawful and undeserved (usury) profits, because that capital (our true medium of exchange) is freely available subject to compliance and the conditions as laid out before.

    This preventive approach will be a major shift in which everyone has equal opportunities with a much broader social base in which crime out of frustration will largely disappear.

    If we accept anything less we will fail (again)!

    I wouldn't mind having a man like ron paul at the helm..

    but more of a liberal at the state level, Personally it wouldn't bother me knowing some of my money is going towards health care, and in return I get free medical coverage..

    However, I can MOVE to a STATE that represents those values

    I think that is my stance, a conservative like paul at the helm, but may have socialist leanings at the local/state level..

      I'm not disagreeing with you or anything, but how can your money go towards health care, and in return you get free medical coverage? Wouldn't you be paying for it then? Nothing in life is free.

      This is the problem: our representatives have encouraged an entitlement system over the last 60+ years that we can't afford.

      Take this analogy and think about it for a second. Why should you get free health care when a doctor has to go hundreds-of-thousands of dollars in debt to pay for college and medical school? Shouldn't he get school for free then? If he goes to school for free, how do the professors get paid, how does the institution buy buildings and labratories if the doctor goes to school for free? See what I'm saying? Nothing in life is free. Nothing. Things can be fair, but they are never free.

      Insurance companies are businesses. Nobody goes into business unless they hope to make a profit. Insurance is a business of risk. You can't expect to avoid paying for insurance, then get ill, and say, "Oh, I want to join now." It doesn't work that way. In the insurance industry, ten people pay into the system and buy policies, knowing that one of them will probably get sick. When that one person gets sick, the other nine who have been paying their premiums indirectly pay for that person's medical bills with their premiums. The insurance company is the organizer, the middle man. All parties entered into an agreement knowing that they would pay a premium, and in exchange, would have their bills socialized if one were to get ill. And the insurance companies get some of that money because they are working FOR you. They organize and underwrite the policies and provide the protection from excessive payments for medical bills. The person working at the insurance company is not a demon. They have families to feed, too. They're time and efforts in organizing and underwriting are worth money. That's how business works. No one goes to work saying, "I want to lose money today." And you can't expect to pay $500 for a $10,000 procedure by avoiding insurance premiums, coming down with a condition, then crying that the insurance company won't cover you because of a pre-existing condition. That is nothing more than theft and dishonesty. You played the game of risk if you choose that route - which you can do - and you lost.

      And for those who have congenital illnesses - that's what charity hospitals are for. If we were allowed to keep more of our money instead of having it confiscated through over-taxation, then we would have more to donate. And I'm convinced most Americans have a heart and would donate.

      Like I said, I'm not knocking you, but you need to let go of this notion that anything in life is free. You may get something for free, but someone else is putting in the time and effort to provide you with that service, which comes at their expense if it's not coming at your expense.

      Medical insurance should only be for catastrophic coverage anyway. If people paid as they went, there would be competition between doctors again, and bills for everyday care would be smaller.

      sure it wouldn't bother you, knowing some of your money, and LOTS of OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY (via taxation / insurance mandate) is going towards your 'free' medical coverage

    Has any of you people in the states united formed a Ron Paul Defense Militia? This guy needs protection 24/7, with a dense militia within a 10 mile radius and snipers on rooftops. I fear his assassination so much :( God bless this man. He changed my life.
