    BTW, Ron Paul is merely swinging from Murray Rothbard’s jock strap in this video. He parrots Rothbard’s theories and does not actually understand the economy or have any original analysis. It’s the same story all the time with Ron Paul because he has only one story to tell and that’s the story Rothbard told. He’s a simpleton.

      LOL, only one story to tell huh? Looks like you are way to used to the status quo approach of changing their story when ever it is more expedient.

      Only a simpleton rejects the truth merely because it is stated more than once. The status quo repeats their lies constantly and loudly.

      What do you have to say about that? Why don’t you try thinking for yourself and stop thinking only along party lines. Think about what is best for the country.

      We have been doing the same thing for decades, it HASN’T worked. Time to try something new. Only an idiot would keep trying the same thing over and over again thinking he will get different results.

    It’s funny how the video starts off talking about the 100th Anniversary of Jekyll Island and then what follows is Ron Paul claiming the Fed is “flawed” and “can’t last.” 100 years is a long time ding bat. Ron Paul then rambles on like a gold bug on crack spewing a lot of discredited nonsense. He confirms he does not understand inflation but claims others do not understand it. Increasing the money supply itself is not inflation. That’ s merely a theory of the cause of inflation.

      Increasing the money supply doesn’t cause inflation? Well gee I had no idea that when you made more of something than people want that it has no negative effect on its value! That is actually the dumbest statement I’ve ever read! Maybe you should go back in time and look at the failure of the Continental dollar and Colonial Script before you get off your high horse mister! The Federal Reserve System didn’t turn 100% Fiat over night.

      It took until 1965 before they started getting rid of silver in spare change and 1971 before they lifted the gold exchange standard. Our Fed is failing in the same way as the Wiemar Republic through over monterizing new debts except instead of watching it happen in the course of years we have witnessed it happen in freeze frames over the course of decades! Now in the last three years we saw rapid monetary supply expansion and rapid inflation. I mean really if the fact alone that they are allowed to loan money they didn’t earn and created out of thin air isn’t enough to upset you then you are truly a totally lost cause. I could care less that all the worlds central banks operate this way and I know they do. Doesn’t change the fact they are all still fraudulent thieves.

      Try looking at history and what happened EVERY TIME they devalued their money, usually by putting less gold or silver in their coins, but you get the same effect using fiat money and just printing it.

      Their economies went into a downward spiral. Look it up.

    Krugman is a Princeton professor. He hasn’t done anything but post comments to a blog, write a editorial, and teach the country’s brightest. Why blame him? What a dumb ass.

      Ben Bernanke is a college bookworm too, what’s your point? Doesn’t change the fact that both been taught the wrong thing their entire life! They’re both central planning quacks following the likes of Keynes and Marx!

    I just watched Ron Paul on CNBC. I’ve seen some other things with him, but I just have to say that he has to be your best chance, America. More than anything he comes across as a good man… that’s not just rare in politics, it’s unheard of.

    You might say “well, nice doesn’t mean good when it comes down to business”, but on the contrary, nice, sensible people do the right thing when it comes to business, rather than being too scared to pull the bandage off.

    You need him as president.

    Whether the Fed is doing the same thing now or something different from what it did in the depression is a question of fact, not politics. I think Ron Paul is clearly wrong if he thinks the Fed in 1929 did what it is doing now. As a matter of fact the Fed then did exactly what Ron Paul now advocates – i.e do nothing and allow banks to go phut. See the Milton Friedman videos on youtube, to see why that policy is a disaster. What an ignoramus, is Ron Paul!

      No the Fed stole all the public’s gold through FDR’s gold confiscation act then FDR tried a host of ABC welfare programs to try to restart the economy. The Fed also caused the Great Depression as well through low interest rates and inflation leading into a debilitating bust cycle when everyone bought into the stock market on the way up on margin no less! It was a predictable failure and FDR seized the opportunity to create the FDIC to create the bailout mechanism of the Fed!

    I admire Dr. Paul, but he’s fighting a losing battle with these statist idealogues. They hold all the cards, and the vast majority of the US populace are complacent nitwits. Sad, but true.

    Check out my video, Ron Paul vs Lincoln! Those who are not free to secede are in effect (partial) slaves to a king, or to a tyrannous majority under democracy. The government is not the country, the land, culture, and people are. “It is the duty of every Patriot to protect his country from his government.” – Patrick Henry “Where liberty is, there is my country.” – Benjamin Franklin

    The best way to strengthen the dollar is to stop printing money and end the fed.

    There is no way they can just cut social programs to the poor until these people are trained and jobs actually exist for them to go to. These people on welfare have been there for 3 generations now and only know one thing and that is sticking their hand out for more. If social programs just go over night so will the USA. Well it will take a week before they start to riot, kill and do whatever it takes to survive. The trap was set and they want you to set it off.

    Funny how they tell you they want to remove Fox news and then go and remove the most popular radio station in upstate NY and replace it with Glen Beck. LOL Retards better bet they are doing it all on purpose just to piss you off so you riot in the streets. They want total chaos so they can get rid of our constitution so they can kill off the unwanted people of society. Freedom will never exist again on this planet if they succeed and you will do what you are told or die.

    Well, no doubt the structure of society is going to collapse, I don’t know if Ron Paul is going to fix years of problems in just 4 yrs of office, after all those years we voted in the wrong president.

    Less government over site I like that . I bet the home mortgage companies like that to. I am not sure the people that lost there home do though.

    You see some one convinced the dem and rep that the gov was in the way and should deregulate and allow derivative to be sold. And to use mortgages with out the over site.

    That sound like libertarian at ideas don‘t it? Except for ripping off the citizens. You know some thing going all the way back to 1965 every time there was a melt down of finance about 4 to 6 year before that you hear some thing like this (the government should not be in business. Business can do it cheaper then the government) or some derivative of that. In a year or so we get less government and then a melt down.

    Ron Paul wants to seal the deal. He wants to cut social spending so ultra wealthy don’t have to foot the bill for the masses that they’ve screwed out of a job by offshoring, outsourcing, and simply being giant parasites on our economy. Look at Washington state, we have Bill Gates with $80 billion dollars yet we homeless and 9% unemployment. He could give 1 billion to fix roads or something and that would help everyone.

    Yeah right Ron Paul, lets just drop the income tax and get the “government off the backs of corporations”. I guess those poor corporations, who offshore and profit heavily off of cheap labor abroad should just be able to keep those profits while destroying American jobs. Maybe us common folk can see some of that money should the rich spend it on foreign made products at home.

    Knowing how intelligent the devilish families who own all the banks are, it’s hard to believe that they would allow Ron Paul to win in 2012. I want to believe otherwise, but they are so damn powerful.

    Quantitative easing is monitary policy? Quantitative easing is something they do when the all normal means of stabalizing the money supply has failed…. the last thing they want to admit is that they failed in monitary policy, because that is their only purpose in life and can’t get it right. Failed to get banks to lend because everyone is holding on for dear life to the falling dollar.
