    The military has already closed bases in the US that they no longer needed. They wouldn’t reopen them just to let people get their jobs. People are discharged regularly when they become redundant. An administrator or security guard on a German base isn’t needed on a base in the US. Those jobs are already filled. Would some people get new jobs? Of course. A great many would be discharged though. It’s just economics.

    By saying you want to stop the empire building you are by default saying that the military budget will be smaller. He’s said this many times. Yes, bases are closed, but not very many of them. Personnel are laid off when that happens. Think about it like this, if a company is closing factories, does it give everybody new jobs in the other factories? Of course not. Our military would be much smaller if the many bases around the world were closed, as they would be closed to save money.

      I think you are partially correct. Yes some soldiers will no longer be soldiers, but what I am willing to wager, is that the majority of our defense spending goes towards contractors, and industries that somehow support our military. We have over 1.5 million active duty soldiers, China over 2.2, India 1.3, Russia 1 million. All their economies are smaller than ours. I don’t think it is outside the realm of possibility to cut back on spending without losing that many boots. If you really think about it, simply moving many of our overseas soldiers back to the states would drastically reduce the budget in and of its self. Realistically we won’t move all our soldiers back. We will continue to have a large and active navy, and a presence in the pacific ocean as that is now the gateway to the world; meaning troops in Japan and Korea. But at least we can stop subsidizing Europe’s or Saudi Arabias defense

    Except that they wouldn’t have jobs. They exist as personnel so they can work in Germany. The capacity doesn’t exist. Downsizing bases is downsizing personnel. If they have no money and no job here, they will be on the dole which doesn’t really help in the long run. If there were demand and jobs in the US at the moment it might be a different story.

    Holy crap, I almost forgot that Dr. Paul could now chair the banking committee. THANK GOD, this means we don’t have to hear Barney “Pedo Pimp” Frank talk as much.

    Looks like someone never read Rothbard. Never discuss gold without having read “What Has Government Done to Our Money?”

    To quote:
    “An increase in the money supply [gold], then, only dilutes the effectiveness of each gold ounce; on the other hand, a fall in the supply of money [gold] raises the power of each gold ounce to do its work. We come to the startling truth that it doesn’t matter what the supply of money is.”

    The vast majority of the GOP and many Democrats are slaves to big-dollar interest. They stagnate the economy by not letting the big corps succumb to the tides of the free-market (i.e. go bankrupt when they are, not get bailed out).
    Much progressive thinking does agree with the Fed setting monetary policy, but most progressives view that the government’s role in advocating action and/or regulation in these areas should focus on promoting overall social wellness v. bandaids for corps

    While Dr. Paul does advocate going with the Constitutional definition of legal tender as weights of gold and silver for government transactions, thereby curbing the State drive for debt-based currency, he also advocates freely competing currencies for free market transactions, so values of commodities would be determined by consumer choice.

    the bottom line here, is that a currency should not be brought into existance with interest attached. remove the interest, and the currency doesn’t devalue over time, because its not created under conditions of exponential growth.

    If you floated the American economy on gold. what do you think the price of gold would be per ounce? It would be astronomical.

    The other problem is, gold’s scarcity always creates plutocracy because the richest, wealthiest people own and control most of it.

    I accept that gold offers excellent protection against inflation but under the circumstances we are under right now, that protection will only only protect the rich and powerful, not Joe Plumber.

    Read Ron Paul’s books it is written for people who don’t understand a lot about the economy or government and what the founders had intended. His voting record is outstanding and his Youtube videos help a lot also. Give his message a chance don’t let others stop your own research. He predicted this monetary problems during his run for president when all the other talking heads were going on how great everything was. Question everything, good luck.

    It doesn’t matter how much gold there is to paper money. Price levels would reflect whatever the exchange was. If there was a lot less paper money out there everything would just be less expensive although it wouldn’t change when compared to actual worth or percentage of a persons wealth. But don’t forget, he would first argue for competing currencies such as one that is gold backed. Gold is just the best commodity for the job.

    I agree with you absolutely.

    Bill Still makes a strong case for government issued, debt free fiat money.

    I haven’t heard Ron Paul address how America’s economy can be floated on gold. It’s too scarce. And how much gold is there in Fort Knox? And who has a claim on ownership of what is stored there?

    But Bill Still poses a very convincing argument that it isn’t what you use as money, it is who controls its issuance that is the problem

    I agree with the good doctor on most things, but after watching the movie “The Secrets of OZ” here on youtube, I’ll have to call into question Paul’s support of gold backed currencies. Here’s the link for the movie… /watch?v=U71-KsDArFM
