    The FED was designed to bring the people to their knees from day one. Let us not forget that BEFORE the Federal Reserve existed the American dollar had NEGATIVE inflation every year. That means every year the buying power of our money went up!!!!!! Once the Federal Reserve came into the scene suddenly this new thing started where the buying power of the dollar went down. Abolish the Federal Reserve and return to the gold standard and inflation will start to reverse itself.

    Ron Paul and others are at least trying to get a handle on government spending. Another point? Why send our soldiers to “battle” if we do not properly “back” them?

    Ron Paul is the biggest asset America has ever had but they are wasting his value by not making him the president of the United Sates of America.Ron Paul as president will make America strong once more and save it from misery ans failure. America without Ron Paul as the president is Americas worst enemy. Vote for him, put your fears aside and make him President. Listen to him listen to your heart. Save America.

    If am today went to grocery to buy some food and to fill my car with gasoline, and would pay the two in gold coins with a quantity equivalent to that in dollars, I believe both are welling, in fact eager, more than before in US history to trade gold with you instead of dollar bills. that all bcuz the FIAT system is all based on thin air and will suddenly vanish and world as in history will come back to reality of gold as a measure and “store” of value more effectively than papers with little ink

    every one is afraid of inflation. high inflation is here. in 2010 I pay 8 dollars for movie ticket and that same ticket cost 9.5. I believe it is reasonable to expect double digit inflation for next year but not hyperinflation.

    What is that drink in front of Bernanke? I see a word that might say “Preservatives” on it, and it is shaped like cough syrup.

    well, under the Coinage Act of 1792, a dollar was defined as 371.25 grains of silver. I guess that got changed somewhere along the way.

    You know, Ive been following Ron Paul for awhile now and have praised him and supported him in many different ways. But when it really comes down to it, Ron Paul is just a True American.

    Barneke is a liar…. he thinks he is smart…. he is a follower of “Yoda” Greenspan who advised the repeal of the Glass Steigal act ,this took the last protections of the bogus Federal reserve system to allow derivatives , it is betting on loans that will go bad ! is this normal banking ? betting on and trading bad loans !

    The only way Ron will ever convince these idiots that he is right is if he declares he has a magical crystal ball that see’s the future. Ben and the other ivory tower keynesians are either too stupid to see what is happening, or they know what they are doing. Both circumstances are unacceptable. Ben and Obama don’t believe in the basic concept of old is money; this is the problem. They dont believe in 6000 year fact or the facts of the past decade or past 3 years. They are smart people which leads me to the conclusion they know what they are doing. If they know what they are doing; then they are doing this on purpose. But for who? NWO, bilderberg, trilateral comish, CFR, your secret dictators. When the money is worthless be prepared cuz the riots are coming to the US of A. Good luck to all that are paying attention; cuz the rest of the population will never ever see it coming.

      Begging your pardon, but Adam Smith doesn’t believe gold is money either!

      Read chapter 4 from Wealth of Nations, it is titled: Of the Origin and Use of Money.

      Adam Smith clearly states “…money is wealth and wealth is money, the two are synonymous…” He further explains this through the principle of intrinsic value. Gold has no intrinsic value, it is only worth what people “artificially” ascribe to it. Food has intrinsic value, it sustains life. Water has intrinsic value for the same reason. Smith even goes so far as to say cattle are closer to real money than gold and silver!

      So the argument that gold is somehow superior to paper is ignorant, for both rely on the very same FAITH that owners place upon their artifical money, be it gold, silver, or paper. Now if your agument changes to people have more faith in gold and silver than paper, I won’t argue but that doesn’t make any of them real wealth (money).

        Adam Smith clearly states “…money is wealth and wealth is money, the two are synonymous…”

        This is a logic fallacy.
        It is wrong. Money is a means, and wealth is an end.

        You can say “clothing is protection” in conversation, but you know that is just using a synonym word to explain what you will use the clothes for=one of its ends.

        Having more food increases your wealth. having more money does not, as we can clearly see every day, the price of food increases.

        I suggest you read Frederic Bastiat “What is money” to have the most clear explanation of why this is a logic error.

        1971= gold 35 dollars an ounce
        2000= gold 350 an ounce
        2011= gold1590 an ounce
        holdyour paper all you want but if it dollars or euro’s u will be broke.
        sorry but the majorityof the money in the US is electronic and its not worth the paper it is not printed on. Gerald Celente. one of the many people predicting this for years. open your eyes, the the value of the paper is the paper (in a ruined/no other use format), and the only entity mandating its value is the US gov for the monopoly fed, all at the end of the barrel of a gun. they force you to use it. dollars dont have intrisic value they have negative value. the dollar has lost 96% of its buying power since 1913. it has also lost 40% of its value in the last 9 years. you sir are either a keynesian (aka part of the problem) or blind, hopefully it is just the second.

          You conveniently left out 1980= gold $800 an ounce!

          Gold DECLINED in value all through the 1980′s and 1990′s.

          Just a fact that you failed to note.

      The majority of people DO SEE THIS… which is why they DO NOT VOTE.

      We need to engage the majority who are not voting and get them to just listen to Ron Paul. His integrity has convinced me to vote once again, after skipping out on the past 20 years, because all the choices were the same old shit, or a 3rd Party candidate that has no chance due to the corrupt two party political system we endure.

    The “Value of the Dollar” Is the psychological assessment of worth based on ones feeling at any given moment of time. It is an illusion. noting more nothing less. The government uses lands that they took for free early in the development of this nation uses the trees from this land to print worthless paper and uses the media to assign value on that paper. sic ain’t it.
