    Ron Paul isn't the only person that understands the hypocrisy of the problems we face.the federal reserve for example!!!!! When asked do you know where the trillions of dollars went? The answer????? We are still looking into that? Really??? Truth is your as much as a thief as the people that were behind the missing money sweetheart..... and that liar bitch should be put in jail for not answering the questions as to why the money is missing? Ron is a truth seeker! Let's get the truth finally.

    the fact that more people aren't listening to this man is the reason why we are going to fail.

    If RON PAUL was elected a very time ago, and there was some kind of law where he could rule the US until he died , then after he died the law ended and could never be made again. MAN THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN FUCKING AWESOME! THE WORLD WOULD BE A MUCH BETTER PLACE IF THAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED YOU KNOW!

    Yes. You can save gold... other people cannot devalue it by printing it... only way they can find more is to dig it out of the ground. It means that your savings will have the ability to hold there value over time. Did you know that the US dollar in real terms.,... has devalued by 95% since the creation of the fed... in real terms... The reason we flip to gold.. is to stop the crooks printing it...

    Israel is a huge drain on the US taxpayers too! 3 Billion a year in cash aid and another 14 BILLION in military and economic support! There's only 7 million people in Israel and they are draining 17 BILLION a year off the US taxpayers! That's 2500 a year free to every man woman and child in Israel a year! The best thing about a financial collapse is that waste would be cut off! Then the Arabs could go in and behead them all for the 50 years of Genocide,Terrorism and land thievery they endured!

    It is time to repeal the Federal Reserve act! It was a back room scam from day 1! They are a private bank and should be thrown out of the country! Let them eat the 16 trillion dollar debt in return for the robbery of the US citizens for the previous 100 years that they lived quite well off of! OUR government has the authority to print OUR own money at NO interest to OURSELVES!, Why should WE pay these rotten shysters for the honor of robbing us? Let this concept go VIRAL!

    think from what I have rewritten we need a compete overhaul of the banks... back to the point where ..the banks credit departments ... were not placed under and controlled by the banks sales department... that is half the problem... ie banks sales were more important than prudent loan portfolios etc.. ie not going broke should be more important than making profit quickly

    corporate .. separate entities... lend to big business and can do swaps/derivatives etc... Could have all banks put money into a bank insurance entity that reinburses creditors of failed banks.... but should be less failures if risk management is "Imposed" on banks through regulation ( less leverage/splitting corp high risk from retail small risk ) . carve the banks into smaller pieces.. so none can be in a position of too big to jail.. ie let the bad ones fail... and the good one prosper..

    Rules on banks must be tightened.. ie reduce their ability to leverage with fractual banking... ie ...higher percentage of assets must be past to the fed reserve ( owned by the people in my scenario ) to cover their liabilities. reduce the ratios at which they can leverage up... ie more controls on banks so they cannot take undue risks.. this might entail splitting a bank to retail and corporate bank entities... ie .. retail bank lends on mortgages and small business.... tbc

    fed is a privately owned corporation ... this is crazy... apparently they are missing billions of dollars .. yes billions... and its not audited... I would require .. the following... All currency be based on a fixed commodity.. say gold.... this will ensure ... no programmed inflation ... which is a tax on your cash savings and cash on hand.. ie it reduces its value...owners of corporations etc which can pass on the inflation with higher prices are immune.. therefore its a tax on the poor. tbc

    OK, but then are we prepared to accept the ramifications of bank failures? Wouldn't this put us back into the situation that existed prior to the formation of the Fed, where bank failures were commonplace and "runs on banks" were frequent occurances? I'm not saying today's system is perfect, or even good for that matter, but I think it might be better than that alternative ...

    Also, if we let the banks fail, then the same should be the case for any profit motivated company, like the Auto cos?

    "Then why not get rid of medicare, and why help the disabled, what about the sick?" these can be called a social security net... through taxes if the people decide...their taxes can be used for these purposes. A bank that only real goal is generating profits must be allowed to win or fall...to ensure free markets and the survival of the best ... giving life support to a profit oriented corporation whos gone bad and giving life support to a human being are too different things...imho

    All you conspiracy people should be focuses on a whole different line of reasoning. You should be asking Congress/Senate, why they allowed institutions to get so big that if one fell, the whole system fall. Ask why the regulators were so behind the times and out of touch that they didn't even know what to look for. Ask why the Boards of the Banks did not reign in ridiculous practices prior to the crisis. Why were the rating agencies so out to lunch? These are the real things to worry about

    That is why I kind of laugh at alot of these posts that are on here, talking about how the Fed is "stealing" or corrupt ... they have no clue how close the US Financial system came to crumbling. The Fed tried to save the system, as flawed as it is, in order to protect us all. Not just the rich or privleaged. And it is a complicated, difficult, subjective thing to do, and there are a bunch of unintended consquences. But the motives are good, not currupt, in my opinion.

    Also, it is easy to say "let the dud companies go broke", but if that were allow to happen during the financial crisis, the ramifications would have been horrendous for everyone. The system is so messed up and intertwined, that letting one systemically important institution could possibly take down the world economy. Then where are we? The problem is that the system is not 100% "free market" and so trying to fix it, or save it, is a horribly complicated task.

    Finally, someone with a lucid point of view who isn't drinking from the conspiracy kool-aid. Your point is valid, in theory. But, it would require that approach to everything, not just business/economics, wouldn't it? To go to a purely 100% "survival of the fittest" system is a radical change in mentality for a society that was supposed to be built on compassion. Then why not get rid of medicare, and why help the disabled, what about the sick?

    Maybe the people living through this depression will get angry and stop the joke that is called American Politics. Get rid of the private Fed, get the accounts in balance..put the debt back in the hands of the people who created it...and allow successful companies to thrive and the ones who's greed sidelined prudent risk management

    That's true.. However, if its free market...then the dud companies go broke.. and the good companies thrive. Bailing out a bad company isn't free market.... if the big companies go to the wall.. they must fall like the little ones.. or the guy who can't pay his mortgage... it can't be bail outs for some and no bail outs for others... Has the system been fixed through free market forces? No. I'd take a depression rather than a devaluation of the cash in my pocket ..and get lumped with their debt
