    That man is so intelligent, yet plain spoken, entirely open and sincere, unlike almost any politician in power. It’s clear why he is so fervently revered.

    I have to admit that we blew it when he ran for higher office. I’d like another chance to make things right.

    Thankfully we have someone to we can really trust. But now we need to keep the momentum going. I could not believe of all my friends, no one can really say that they read the constitution. We must as a Country make sure that EVERYONE at least knows the Basic’s and know how to read. So when some other form of government tries to over step it self, it our responsibity to make sure they follow the constitution. The big reason for Ammendment 2.

    It is an extremely complex system. The guys who run Wall Street, those mega banks–which are not capitalist, but fascist–run the fed and use it to redistribute our wealth to their pockets. They do this through fractional reserve banking, which means they print our money, which has been devalued by 97% since its creation in 1913–lobbied by the Rockefellers, JP Morgan and made by them–and each dollar loaned at a 10% interest rate, thus they control our government, not us.

    I think he did as well, and he’s still somehow missing large segments of our history. We are on the third rendition of a “Central Bank” and the first two ended though struggles, and support of the people. Especially when Old Hickory killed the second bank for what should have been the final time! Too bad Americans have so easily been misled and forgotten our history!

    Check out “The Money Masters” if you’ve never seen it! Great documentary!

    – Is it really only nominally private? Seems like the gov’t controls the main activities and essentially runs it.

    The Federal Reserve is a private central bank which has nothing to do with government and loans our money to us

      The Austrians/Paulians tell you, that they want a return to Constitutional money; and to sound money. No bigger lie can be told!

      Why not? Check out their forums. Gold bugs everywhere; and what they want is NOT for gold to return to its Constitutionally defined value! They want to make out like the Federal Reserve! Speaking about hypocrits!
      Worse then is the lie that they want to “end the Fed.”

      Why? 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.

    THE DRYING SHAME IS
    THAT when you remove the fed they will make WAR on us !
    so we as the united states of America need to
    be ready to execute the families and entities of the fed in total
    or they will infiltrate and undermine the united states again
    you must do as they do !
    they shot Lincoln and Kennedy and have committed much treason
    and 2/3rds of government will need to pay the piper too!
    some jailed for life and some executed for treason
    all the way up to the usurper and thief !

      please…

      a few individuals could never have done the harm that they have done in a society of persons who think critically and practice autonomy. if you want to go executing families how do you frame your standards? If you want to identify the guilty you will hardly fail to list a man in this world. What do you mean they will “infiltrate” us again? do you mean they will convince a vast number of people that nonsence is truth again? does the fault then lie with the perpetrators of lies or with the masses who have left their minds so open that their brains have fallen out? the fate of a society comprised of mostly ignorant men will never be a good one, whether it be nature or evil that is their demise. better to let those clever thiefs live, even if they deserve death… just to keep us on our gaurd; we all deserve death if we fail to protect our lives; if we accept that our minds are so hopelessly vunerable to lies that we murder power whenever it becomes simply large, then we will never know if the institution we’ve destroyed was good or evil. You can’t make people less ignorant by murdering bankers — where ignorance predominates, evil will always rise to the top.
