    Yea, but only through constitutional Monetary Policy will things get naturally back to normal for US and then, subsequently, for the rest of the World, slowing down to the Natural pace of real Natural Economic Expansion through properly represented Monetary Issuance, thus is the Great Lesson fullfilled. This will eliminate over competitions and over consumption and those nothing for something usurers will now have to learn how to work for a living. Praise God, Christ is King of Kings.

    LOL, looks like the trolls are out in force.

    Just goes to show you that Ron Paul has the status quo sweating. Good, they need to sweat.

    God bless America.

      Are you completely deluded Jim. Ron Paul is so not a threat now to anything but himself. His agenda is nothing more than corporate welfare disguised as getting rid of taxes. And the lemmings like you buy it hook, line, and sinker.

      The upside of all this is that it makes good entertainment hearing how the little jerks have been bamboozled by the constitution waving and flag waving. When will you ever learn?

        Not a threat huh? Funny, more and more trolls come in here trying to discredit him.

        And isn’t it funny how now what are considered ‘mainstream’ candidates and politicians, are starting to sound like Ron Paul, using his language.

        I read history bub, the more I read, the more I realize, this is just a continuation of something that has been going on for centuries.

        The rich elite of the world, who up until fairly recent history, have been the nobles, with a few of the rich merchant class, are the ones trying to maintain their power and wealth.

        They believe they have the obligation and ability to rule the world. Noblesse oblige.

        The bible is pretty clear about what the outcome will be. I am just not sure how it will play out here in America.

        According you, I guess we should all just shut up and be good little vassals and serfs. Do what we are told, when we are told, how we are told.

        I bow before NO MAN!

        I believe in my constitution. We have forgotten and ignored God, now we pay the penalty.

        One simple rule would cure most everything if people actually followed it, DO UNTO OTHERS, AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU.

        You are the one who is deluded if you believe your own propaganda. I have read history, books like ‘The Prince”, and many many others. I have even read meeting minutes of an old Bilderberg meeting.

        I gain insight to tactics, methods, trends and mindsets, by reading things. I have been reading this kind of stuff for over 40 years. I have learned a thing or two.

        Truly, there is nothing new under the sun. It is the same old game, same old tricks. The game of chess and power plays. Power and money.

        It’s ok when you have a good leader, they however have been few and far between, we usually end up with tyrannical despots.

        You think you are talking to just some run of the mill average non thinking peasant. I am not. I think, I discern, I weigh matters, I compare, I extrapolate, I am.

          Jimboy, I’m only trying to help you. Don’t waste your money on Ron Paul. So read some more Jim but don’t read bible sky fairy tales. Those who do that already have two strikes against them in the brains department.

          Really Jim, I would gladly give you 100/1 odds against Ron Paul becoming anything more than a bad wet dream of suckers like you. His trouble is, for every good idea he has, he has 10 bad ones.

          Oh, and Jim, note that I don’t get near as many thumbs down now. Seems even this site has more ron paul opposition than support. How stupid are you Jimboy?

    Let’s be clear…a tax break is NOT a subsidy. Ron Paul has been accused of subsidizing Big Oil. He does not. When figuring one’s income, a business must capitalize expenses that will take several years to reap the benefits from. This means an oil company that spends money building an oil rig, cannot claim the entire expense all in the first year. This expense must be spread out over several years…even decades. As an enticement to promote drilling, Congress has enabled oil companies to speed up the use of these expenditures. It does not mean they are getting out of paying taxes.

    Ron Paul 2012…you are either for FREEDO or you are not.

      You’re right tj, a tax break is not a subsidy. But when you add it all up you support ron paul because he’s intending to place the tax burden on stupid little people like you. You people really must start to wise up a little.

    Ron Paul is always amusing. Not very bright and often just out right stupid. But then, that is why Paul can’t win outside of Texass. Why must Paul make it so clear he does not comprehend the Constitution.

    I’m genuinely curious and wondering if anyone can answer this for me; my understanding is that the effects of tax credits fundamentally amount to a similar end result as subsidies – the gov’t is allowing an economic benefit to one area of the economy that it isn’t offering to the entire economy. Wouldn’t this artificially direct more resources to that one tax-credited area that wouldn’t have gone there otherwise? Seems like gov’t market manipulation, which is what we’re trying to avoid.

      Hey doug, don’t ask embarrassing questions that Ron Paul needs to avoid. Trust in your own common sense because you are right on the money.

      I’m impressed at how many Ron Paul followers are finally seeing through this little scam article by good ol Ron.

      This is a good point! My understanding is that Ron Paul would work to reduce taxes across the board, even ending the income tax. As far as I can tell, that’s pretty fair.
      Help me out: are tax credits the same as a tax break?

      If so, then I see this difference between tax credits and subsidies: tax credits allow a person or company to use more of their earned income for growth while a subsidy takes income from person A and allows person B to use it for their growth. A subsidy is a double whammy because it literally robs peter to pay paul while a tax credit allows peter AND paul to keep more of what they earn.

    when we do print Money, print it Direct from the press at the mints, Bypass the fed,
    that way we dont borrow it or have to pay it back,
    Kennedy signed exec. order 11110 just before he got assassinated & it was to bypass the fed & have the treasury print our money,
    If we do it that way, get rid of Geithner because he is an employee from the federal reserve & conflict of interest.
    so what if we print mone to pay for elect, cars charged by home solar, so we can travel for free, it saves Army

      Having the fed print money won’t change anything. The fed enables the deficit through purchasing treasuries. You are proposing that we give the treasury unbridled range to print and inflate the money supply even faster? Remember the treasury already debased the dollar even before the fed came along. In fact that was the excuse used to found the fed.

      The treasury’s only role (via congressional approval) as far as money goes in the constitution is to regulate the value of money by regulating the fineness and weight of gold or silver coin. That is to say the faith of the government is that we trust they have attested to the fineness of the gold/ silver coin by weight. This is not to say they should have the power to regulate ‘value’ through legal tender laws.

    I Like Ron paul & he is my fav so far by far
    especially cause he wants to Rid the fed,
    we had govt funding for Dams & that has helped America
    if we’re gonna fund education, then we need to fund entrepanurs
    so there is Jobs for those graduates
    our problem isnt stacks of money in peoples living rooms creating inflation like happened in Germany that they had to have a wheelbarrel full of money to buy bread
    crysler got a bail out but the public made profit off there profit
    Kickstart……cont

    Ron is right, it’s just that coal gets sooo many tax credits and deductions that alternative energy cannot compete. They get 0% interest loans from the government which is another form of subsidy. Wind energy doesn’t get the deductions that coal does, they do not get 0% interest loans. Until they do coal will continue to be heavily subsidized. You can’t give one company tax credits and deductions while not doing so for their competitors, this is still a subsidy and Ron need to realize that.

    This is where I and many others really start to part ways with folks like ron paul..

    If a resident builds a dam on a river, and the river inhibits fish from migrating, ie effects MY part of the river, and puts wild life in danger. The government has every moral right and ground to step in..

    HOWEVER, I think a president would have a better shot at drastically cutting down the military complex, thanthey would of ending the EPA, which I think most americans support…
