    Ron Paul is our last hope - the NWO folks have just about destroyed this country. Get rid of the FED - yes we can afford it and actually cannot afford to keep the FED - paying private bankers to print money and to put us in financial debt? How stupid are Americans? Surely we are not that passive!
    We need to unite the way Obama did for his election - remember? The one where he made lots of false promises just to get elected as puppet for Bilderbergers - lies and false promises. Elect RP.

    I'm a proud Ron Paul supporter.
    My husband just brought me a dollar out of his pocket a few minutes ago.
    It said, "Audit the FED".
    You gotta love it!
    Peace all.

    If the American people have spoken, why has "the Ben Bernanke" still not been fired?

    Ever watch the Wire? Aside from being the greatest TV shows ever, Season 4 highlights how Federal involvement in Education destroys entire districts.

    Even if you still think Fed Gov should fund education, why do we need a Dept of Ed? Why not just channel money back to the districts and let them do what they decide needs to be done. If they do well, they get known for 'Good Schools', and the town and schools benefit. Run them poorly, people go to better run districts.

    because the Fed government steps in with mandates, and one-size-fits-all solutions, and moronic programs like "NCLB" that install these standardized "tests" that force teachers to stop educating students on how to think, and focus on rote memorization for these tests just so the school won't lose more funding.
    Let education decisions come locally. Let some experiment so we can see what works, and what doesn't. implement vouchers so schools compete for students (like colleges)

    States that spent way beyond their means are going bankrupt. Texas and N Dakota are doing fine and their economy is booming.

    You know, I would almost accept socialized healthcare... but it has to be totally socialized. This BS "Obamacare" will not help at all. It needs to be all socialized or all free market or it's F'ed.

    Why does education funding need to come from the Fed Gov. What's wrong with local or even state? We spend, by far, the most on education, yet it sucks. Y?

    Maybe we can promise not to protect Taiwan if the Chinese forgive all our debt.

    Ha. Although you present an interesting idea... there is a Micro Loan bubble starting to pop in asia. Too many loans shoveled out and payback rates are starting to drop like a rock.

    How bout, we don't give any money to anyone and instead just lower taxes across the board.

    better, but I'd be partial to local money these days. It would be better to have monetary policy in the open than a shadowy group of unaccountable bankers, but the more local and free competition you introduce into the world of monetary instruments, the less chance for strategic devaluation or fraud you're likely to encounter.

    Milton Friedman is only slightly more free market than Alan Greenspan, yet statists always seem to think name dropping Friedman is the ultimate way to win a debate with a free market libertarian. Ummm. . . yeah. . . okay. . . there's that big Federal Reserve elephant in the room there, Milton. No policy change, how about. . . Abolition. . . yes, now that's the ticket.

    Very good, Dr. Paul. Why there aren't more great Austrian Economists like you in congress mystifies me. It is literally the only solution that makes any rational sense. At any rate, thanks for sticking to your guns. Now the message for liberty is starting to resonate regardless of the mood in DC.

    No election comments? So I can't say "Ron Paul/Rand Paul 2012", then? You spoil all the fun. ;)

    "what if the fed couldnt buy debt?...... what if we used the hundreds of billions of dollars to micro loan new buisnesses into fruition? what if we spent 1 million on 700,000 buisnesses instead of giving it to criminals who are subjecting our country to commercial corporate tyranny?

    yea too bad even with the voice of reason nowadays, most people find it hard to separate reason and logic with flat out meaningless and pathetic messages due to the massive influx of entertainment from the media as well as the disgruntled and garbled language of the uninformed public who don't know where to turn to or how to express it in a uniform manner, and thats where Ron paul comes in. Just too bad people need glasses from him because we get spoon-fed since 4 ha.

    RP makes great points but the Fed has made it impossible to END THE FED. Interests rates on our external debt would rise to probably the 6% range and interest payments alone would be 500b a year. Its too late to end the Fed, and that's why the Feds buying treasuries like a crack head that just won powerball!! This country is fooked...its that simple.

    prepare to have your paradigm SHIFTED...Of course it's ridiculous - but it IS a great exercise to think outside the box. GOOGLE "Kick in the Seat of the Pants" ..after you Google "Whack on the Side of the Head. This is a guy who made the rounds of the Late Fortune 500 in the 80's who changed the world into the one we know today. When you're sick and tired of being sick and tired you will stop being sick and tired. And not before
