    Informative Interview!

    Paul’s absolutely right. Just look at inflated costs of living/ education etc, social security not keeping up with inflation, how we are ALL way over taxed. If DC wasn’t so economically irresponsible, so busy misallocating resources… Did you see 2:01?! More than 224 BILLION a year on interest on the national debt alone!

    The FED meddles with interest rates, created the housing bubble keeping interest rates too low for too long! No more cycles of booms and busts! The FED doesn’t meet it’s mandates for maintaining a stable dollar, nor maintaining maximum employment. Paul suggests a stable dollar based on a standard baskets of goods, and requires responsibility accountability and sound economics in DC!

    Ron needs to start calling them the federal reserve bank on national tv. Most people don’t understand what hes talking about let alone know what the “fed” is.

    Ratigan usually gives Ron a fair shake on his show, unlike his peers at MSNBC. Some people actually realize the benefit of Paul’s wisdom and how he continues to accurately predict (along with men like Peter Schiff and Thomas E. Woods Jr.) the future of the US economy and the cause of its woes, aka the Federal Reserve and and government meddling in the free market.

    I don’t know what “raise retirement age” can do anything good.
    Is it good for older people keep working and younger people keep being unemployed? That would cause even more problem.

    He laughs while head reads “waiting for the new currency” off his prompter. Wonder if it’s the first time he’s said it.

    Audit the Fed Go Ron Paul

    No currency system will work without accountability coupled with mandatory Jail time for offenders

    Bring on the new metal standard

    Gold,Aluminum,Stainless Steel, Copper and Nickel

    Silver is a vital hot commodity for most of our industry and in low supply it would be wasteful as a currency stop the silver manipulation and you get 1000.00 PLUS SILVER because of supply and demand. Leave the silver alone stop the manipulation.

    Ron Paul, dump the mainstream parties and you’d have my vote. If you continue to run with this Dem/Rep scam, then I’ll be writing in my candidates for Pres 2012.

    There was a good program on british “Channel 4″
    “Britain’s Trillion Pound Horror Story” It explains the full extent of the financial mess the UK is in and is a strong case against the keynesian debt state and why deficit spending & the welfare state is the road to hell
    It’s a remarkable thing, that this program was shown on british MSM
    Part 1: watch?v=7gd6-zfeeaM
    Part 2: watch?v=KrASFrpi8zA
    Part 3: watch?v=thUrVB7bFdE
    Part 4: watch?v=-kotac3meVM
    Part 5: watch?v=ZPtayYoHoCY

    The problem is that the actual solutions are what nobody wants to hear. The solution at this point is painfully simple. Cut government spending. Raise government revenue. Everything needs to be cut. Social Security, Defense, blatantly failing departments like Education, Housing & Urban Dev, the list goes on. Despite rhetoric, no voter wants THEIR free money program to be cut, just everyone else’s. Hence the bickering in DC. Americans whine but we’re not actually willing to address this problem.

    I’ll tell ya the wild card here is foreign interest in US debt and Wall Street itself. They are all worried about QE2 and there’s talk now about a QE3 and even a QE4.
    meltdown. stop the presses!

    The act alone of streamlining the gov’t by dumping the bureacracies like food stamps, welfare, and The Department of Education does away with the cost of paying people who make careers of working in/running those programs (earning twice the average income in America).

    Looking at the pie chart– I would like to see the war budget cut to a 1/3 of its current amount; but it’s medicaid and medicare that are consuming the greatest portion of the budget. Just do away with low income programs like medicaid, welfare, food stamps, gov’t housing, and unemployment; and expand social security to everyone earning under 50k a year, over the age of 24. Let people spend the money how they wish. If you can’t cut spending greatly; at least streamline how it works.

    Just a quick reminder that you may want to tune in to tomorrow’s fourth broadcast from TNS Radio (tnsradio.ning.com) at 3 PM Pacific time. The first four programs are intended to be listened to in order, as each provides background material for succeeding discussion. Response has been tremendous from all over the world. I hope you’ve enjoyed as well.

    These are links for downloading and listening to the first 3 shows in preparation for tomorrow’s program. Of course, if you miss a show, you can always catch up from these archive links:

    PROGRAM 001 DOWNLOAD LINK:
    http://www.zshare.net/audio/820088191e550288/

    PROGRAM 002 DOWNLOAD LINK:

    Owing to a software glitch, my system failed to record the third program live — which would have produced a high quality recording. Fortunately, Dave Ardron of Australia successfully recorded last week’s Program 3.
    His may be the only surviving copy. It’s not a perfect recording… but it’s listenable… and it’s all we have. If there’s a call for it, I’ll try to re-record the show. Perhaps someone with processing expertise can clean it up… and, really, I lean that way for now at least, as you can hardly repeat the event as it happened otherwise.

    PS.

    In near term shows, Mike will be taking questions and interviewing other monetary reform leaders. After his first show, Austrian Economics was pronounced dead — forever — in the Ron Paul forums at ronpaul.com. The second and third programs follow suit, disproving all contending propositions. Of course, his original (1968) proposition was a proof of singular solution… but there’s a huge world-wide following now, who finally understand all this, thanks to the TNS broadcasts amongst others.

    If you should like to pose any questions (after listening to each of the first 4 programs to see if what you want to know has already been covered), you may pose your questions at any time over Skype, by contacting Mike at Skype ID: pfmpe2012. All contact is recorded. We can integrate all good questions in future TNS programs.

    Thanks for listening… and warmest regards,

    PEOPLE For Mathematically Perfected Economy™

    This country is owned by the fed and the corporations. The troops are’nt fighting for anyone’s freedom there fighting for pipelines and oil. The troops are the corporations muscle to take whatever they want, then we get the bill as taxpayers.
    The fed and corporations should have to pay the military themselves since indirectly is who the troops are fighting, eh working for.

    There is so much in what he is saying, but is there truly anyway for the change to be made without a ground swell of support?

    I fear that the majority of us are too disinterested to expect much change.

    Thus we continue to acquiesce to further and further centralization of power, far removed from the concerns of the citizenry.

    America was founded on MASONIC FREEMASONRY or CABALA . Freemasonry is the founding of “America”. Freemasons sought “A” merica or the western star.

    This means the Western Star Venus. Venus is the Red White & Blue star. The statute of LIBERTY is Their LIGHT BEARER COLUMBIA or their Goddess. Your Capital Building’s are TEMPLES with each having a CORNER STONE from the FREEMASONS. They ORDAIN their CRAFT with WINE CORN & OIL.
