    You know the economy is a fraud. You know the politicians are corrupt. But what are you doing about it? Bust the Banks - Buy Silver.

    Not going to happen. The US needs to print more money to keep the lights on. If it doesn't there will be massive demonstrations and deaths due to the collapse that would come.

      And you think we can avoid this "collapse" by printing more money. History shows the collapse will come anyway. You can postpone it by printing more money, but that will only make it more severe. It won't be the first or the last paper currency collapse. The US will survive.

    If allowed to hyper inflate, there may not be a country left to save.

    Ron Should not run in 2012- too late, meaning the economy has already been destroyed- to fix it, it needs to get worse first-- the Media might want Ron Paul in office in 2012 then he would be the target as the "WHY" when the Mobs are running loose trying to get the entitlments, SS-medicare-medicade going again. He could run if it has already collapsed - but if BREAD is under $5.00 a loaf he should not run. If Bread reaches $75.00 a loaf by 2012 THEN RUN .

    Ron Paul would have been president years ago, but the newspapers played him down. What's going to stop them from doing the same thing again? Don't we have any control over the mainstream rags? Maybe start him off as a write-in? Start Obama's impeachment and nullify what he has done. End the Fed. He will stop this insane power grab. Get rid of Hawaii's one-arm bandit Sen. Inouye.

    We need to stop sending all this money overseas and instead keep our tax dollars in the pockets of every individual. As the forefathers stated, we need to stop fighting for liberty and keep our own liberty. That means we can do whatever we want unless it hurts someone and we should stop having these wars that only free other people, geez.

    The only way to reduce spending is to slash the Pentagon's budget. We spend more on military than the whole world combined. Politicians cannot call themselves conservatives while supporting the empire that is going to bankrupt America like Rome.

    Ron Paul...why not have the money printed by the Treasury and backed by nothing, thereby turning money=debt to money=means of exchange. Money Masters Cutting services will do nothing to help people, which whether you like it or not, is the role of government. So your solution is to let people starve instead of having a debt free currency issued by the government. Awesome!

      @hiyukenmusic,

      Please clarify your comment. Presently the US Dollar is "backed by nothing". Also, removing the "debt" element from the currency will not eliminate the problem of an exponentially expanding supply of currency - such a currency will have no value in the long run. Merchants and traders will seek a medium of exchange that is a real store of value, abandon the dollar, and leave the rest of with a worthless currency - this is not my opinion, history bears this out. Also, the "debt" element of any paper currency is eventually forgiven. Like many of its citizens, the US gov't will never be able to pay off its debt, so it will default and reorganize at some point in the future. Given that so many other developed nations are in the same predicament, they will probably all reorganize at the same time in a common effort, thereby erasing most of their debt in a single cooperative stroke. What we need is a stable money supply - historically precious metals have offered the best solution.

    Lock Congress in a room, give them blankets and pillows, turn off the A/C ( or heat) and tell them they can't come out until the budget is balanced. Then we can start to look at how we are going to re-pay the deficit.

    Hey Ron Paul, i know you won't see this but for most people you realize that the US government is trying to destroy the US dollar therefore if the dollar falls we don't owe any other country money. HENCE they will remake a new currency, just like in the past not speaking of our country similar to something like China did.

    Exactly, Ron! Liberals and Progressives on both sides of the "Aisle" will squeal, but this will rightly put their nose in it! Sometimes the way to solve a problem is to make it worse, so that it DEMANDS attention. What you propose should do it! And keep those in Congress from Tea-Party success on track! A 5-10% cut each year in all departments for 5 years as an opener should be very possible. Award success.

    Only problem is: I worked in gov't for awhile in a big Dept of Agriculture service (agency). The politically appointed Administrator (nice tho' he was) and his Deputies (equally nice and generally competent people) have no idea what is really in their budgets or how to start from scratch. Guess they will learn--a needed life changing experience!
