    People want their sexy, smooth, charismatic candidate who can reassure the nation that things will be okay. What they don’t want is to be intellectually challenged – that’s why they’re name-calling, so they don’t have to deal with issues. Give us a university professor (and a lawyer to boot) and he’ll take care of it. Americans were forced to engage in the issues under Bush because he wasn’t a guy you relied on intellectually. People don’t like that.

    Ron Paul is what we need but we’re not going to have him as president. We’re going to get some mealy mouthed collectivist. There are just too many stupid people in this country for anything intelligent to happen. ” Democracy is the theory that the people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.” H.L.

    Should Limited Govt be a business term for avoiding liabilities? Good side about that theory is that Limited Govt needs no cut; they, but not the messes, leave.

    And what makes you think that website you listed is accurate.

    What’s more, why is that website the top google listing for that quote.

    If it were such a realistic quote, shouldn’t it be listed on something a bit more credible?

    A violent criminal recently released from jail was diagnosed as ”depressed” and now this able bodied 28 year old man collects 1600/month in ”disability” but…more import is that Dr. Ira, his psychologist gets hundreds a month to treat his ”depression”. We have money for that?

    Would like everyone to pay attention to eye7view’s comment here, solution can indeed be that simple. Reposting a thread from the sound money blog to this one as its particularly appropriate here as well. We need to put an end to the insanity and not accept more insane proposals from the very people who created the first and actually work toward establishing function if we expect to survive.

    Well Citizens post here is typical of the idocy which exists in our society due to too many of the population simply believing bullshit created by banks and economists in order to enable the culprits to steal from them instead of simply thinking and figuring out what can work on their own.

    Citizen is railing about the government borrowing more money from banks and injecting it into the system in order to get some means of trade into circulation in order to restore some form of production and this is the single and only thing they can do as long as banking is tolerated in our country. On my end i’m seeing the results of this already as the money which is being injected is beginning to trickle down and generate sales and i think that everyone involved in anything useful is beginning to see the effects of this by now as well, especially after all of our production having been completely shut down for a few years now. The problem is that all of this new bank debt will be sucked out of the system again in a very short time by interest and the business of money and we’ll be worse off than we were before as always must be the case. Citizen and the Austrians propose giving us gold and silver to trade with instead of bank debt and still tolerating a banking system, thus still allowing the means of trade to be a business and once profit from money has sucked all of the gold and silver out of circulation so that its no longer available as a means of trade, our production will be shut down for good, with absolutely no means or recourse to restore any measure of it even temporarily.

    Think people, Think !

    Here are some simple facts.

    GUARANTEED FUNCTION:

    The single and only way for any country or society to sustain itself is through the useful production generated by its citizens.

    The single and only way for any country or society to grow and prosper is to increase the useful production generated by its citizens.

    The single and only way to sustain and promote any form of useful production is to have the ability to give the population real money to facilitate the exchange of this production between themselves so that each is capable of trading what they can do for what another person does that they can use. The single and only way to do this is to use a means of exchange which can be created and issued into circulation to match the value of production generated by the population at any given time, so that enough exists to pay for the full extent of it, and this means must remain in circulation and be added to as necessary in order to enable it to continue to do this. If money is supposed to do this we must be capable of creating it freely without debt, and issuing it into circulation where it can actually remain in circulation to pay for the production that the population can generate. How it comes into circulation is of far less consequence than that it actually does and stays there because every unit of currency will enable the creation of more production every time it changes hands. The money is simply and only an artificial means of exchange and can be created and put into circulation in any manner we choose and at absolutely no cost or consequence other than that it simply represents value and can be used as a means of trade for things of value. As long as it exists for no other function than this, it can continue to work, and so can we.

    Where such is the case, it becomes not only possible but inevitable for any country or society to grow and proper on a perpetual basis, as given the guaranteed ability to exchange what we can do today, each and every person in that society will figure out how to do more tomorrow, and things can and will only keep getting better and better until someone is stupid enough to believe some bullshit fantasy invented by a banker or economist who says it can be otherwise in order for them to steal without doing any work.

    GUARANTEED FAILURE:

    Short of war or natural disaster, the single and only way to destroy any country or society is to shut down its useful production.

    Considering money a business and a means to profit as opposed to a simple public service provided by the people to themselves guarantees this eventual end result. All profit from money means money taken out of circulation without any contribution to our useful production in exchange for it and there is simply no possible way that any form of economic balance can be maintained where this is the case. Even savings remove money from circulation to where it is no longer available as a means of trade, and although this money can be easily replaced to maintain maximum production, if enough people will inject all of their savings into circulation at once it will devalue the currency. Of little consequence since production is still maintained, but also a good reason for people to shift their thinking toward establishing security with useful assets, that can contribute to our production as opposed to saving money over any length of time. Every single nickel of profit made from money removes one nickel of our means of trade from circulation and further shuts down our production by removing our means to exchange it between ourselves. Where debt is used as money, it will always end up shutting down production once profit from money has consumed the entire means of trade as we’ve just experienced and have many times in the past. Limited production can be restored temporarily by creating more debt as is being done now, but eventually it must get to the point where the interest on the debt is greater than the value of what the population is capable of producing and it all comes crashing down. Where commodities (gold, silver, etc.) are used as currency, once profit from money has consumed all of the commodities there is no way to restore any form of production and the system must come crashing down even faster.

    Once the means of trade has been consumed, and we no longer have any form of useful production taking place due to lack of a means to exchange it, the only way for the country or society to continue to exist is for the banks who have consumed that means of trade to establish a pseudo communist/socialist police state where the dummy corporation they have established as government seizes all property and maintains the population as livestock at a bare subsistence level with absolutely no hope of anyone accomplishing anything in their lives which could possibly make them a worthwhile thing, in order to maintain absolute power over them and prevent them from taking back what has been stolen from them as they must inevitably do. This is the guaranteed and inevitable result in any society which tolerates any form of business or profit involving the public means of trade. Under our current fiat debt system, we have been progressing toward this slowly, under what they Austrian’s propose we would arrive at this condition immediately.

    ……………………..

    Think people think !. Truth is a self evident thing and established through things like thought, reason, evidence and anything requiring any form of trust and faith is guaranteed to be a lie by the simple virtue of the fact that it requires trust and belief.

    THE OBVIOUS SOLUTION:

    Kill all the Banks, Central Banks, Big Banks, Little Banks, each and every bank, and then establish a real UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, in place of the dummy corporation which exists to serve the Banks so that it can do the single and only job we desperately need a government to do, which is to provide and manage the public means of trade we need to make things work, otherwise they can’t, they never have, and never will.

    The single and only way in which the American Populations freedom will be destroyed, and the single and only way in which they can exist in anything other than a state of rich and abundant prosperity, is if they let some banker talk then into letting him subject them to more poverty and misery than he has already, for no other reason than that it makes him feel powerful in order to be able to do this to them.

    Hi David,

    You pinned it down so clearly that only an idiot would continue to debate the issues. Lets try some other method to get to the stubborn subconscious of those who think of wealth as a game of monopoly of the means of trade. They want to try everything and anything but production. Let’s try this method of bombardment or hypnotism:

    GOLD and SILVER mean nothing
    FIAT money means nothing
    You can not eat GOLD
    You can not make a T-shirt out of gold. Even if you could, you would not like it as one made out of cotton!
    You can not use fiat money either to do the same
    All true wealth comes from the giving of nature—food, trees, energy, cotton, silk, animals, minerals including gold and silver, water, oxygen, sun, winds, mines, most of which are renewable and produced in multitudes!
    Man through production and developed agriculture made good use of all the above and started civilization which incorporated knowledge, skills, technology, art, imagination, and virtue to form civil societies.
    Man needed a form of trade that is practical and efficient to trade valuable things given by nature and finished products made by man and all skills, labor, and other activities needed for and invested into the production process. Man called the means of trade MONEY whether it is made of paper, wood sticks, or 24 k gold.
    Man through greed and deviance figured out ways to rob others of lawful wealth and production through the invention of the so called BANKING and FINANCE which does nothing but avoids production and steal the means of trade from good citizens through debt, interest, and all the BS derivatives of it. So the means of trade became the lazy bum greedy SOB way to have things, control things, and manipulate things without sweating a drop!
    Governments were invented to steal the wealth of the people given by nature and earned through lawful and honest production activities through coercive taxation systems where the collected money is wasted on useless bureaucracies and given as a gift to the enemies of production and nature (bankers who contribute nothing to society besides stealing the means of trade until all production is shut down and the whole planet falls into slavery to the rule of bankers.)
    The only useful function of money (currency) is to circulate as much as it could and create production and trade to allow each and every honest honorable citizen to contribute to good economy.

    Even SAVINGS are bad idea as they take the means of trade out of circulation and result in shutting down more production! Good one David and this is something the idiots need to think about!

    So make up your mind people: do want to join the productive force of nature and man, or you want to join the gang of thieves and parasites who will use you as a host to live off and grow even much more dangerously into higher degree of parasitism?

      lol… am not certain whether the two of you are communists or capitalists? If you are capitalists, you are overthinking and demonstrating a lack of complete understanding of FREE markets. Ron PAul does not suggest a return to the gold standard. He merely suggests allowing free markets to determine money. Because of its portability, durability, divisibility, and appeal, gold became the best…not the only…currency.
      Now both of you decry bankers and savings. Of course, bankers who use the force of government should at the very least be stripped of their ill/gotten wealth and imprisoned…starting with beady eyes bernanke and dimwit guitner.
      However, bankers in a free market capitalistic society serve important functions. Let,s say I work hard and produce much wealth. Yet, consume far less than I produce. I therefore, save my wealth/money by putting it in a bank…earning interest. In other words, I am renting my money at a rate determined by free markets. You are creating wealth, but expect to create more in the future. You have a desire to consume more now than you are producing…I have a desire to consume less than I am producing…the nice banker matches us for a fee…
      When there are more of me and less of you, interest rates are low in order to discourage me…the saver…and entice more of you…the consumer…and vice/versa. However, thanks to the Fed, despite few of me and many of you, interest rates remained low and overconsumption occurred…resulting in the financial crisis of today…
      but, do not fear…once the fed is ended and interest rates are liberated…savings and real investment will occur and will outpace consumption asap…economic recovery will soon follow

    so let me get this straight, the market crash of 08 was adverted and america is now having a strong economic recovery, the jobless rate is falling, and no inflation is occurring, yet the fed is printing money out of thin air to pay the governments bills and if it stops printing the money and they don’t increase the dept ceiling its the end of the world. not to mention the interest rate being held at zero %, with admitted dept of 14t and running a 1t deficit. you cant make this stuff up lolol
