    All Candidates: "I will fix your problems."

    American People: "How?"

    Ron Paul: "Getting rid of the federal reserve, and giving liberties back to the people."

    All Other Candidates: "Well, it's um...err...It's a secret." (Discreetly shovels money up their asses.) "Now let me distract you by this trinket!"

    American people: -_- ...."BAHHH."

    The FED actually owe the taxpayers money. Why? The constitution states only Congress can coin money. Yet that privilege has been passed onto the FED with is not part of our government. The FED is a private institution. So why is the FED allowed to coin money and then charge an interest on that debt to the taxpayers. SHOULDN'T WE BE CHARGING THE "FED" a FEE JUST TO HAVE THAT PRIVILEGE TO COIN MONEY?

    The media is already beginning their massive campaign to marginalize Ron Paul's Presidential campaign for the Republican nomination in the 2012 election. In order for our movement to succeed in electing a real President like Ron Paul in 2012, we must all work together.

    RON PAUL SIGN BOMB DOT COM!
    The sign bomb started out a good idea, but has turned into a HUGE network of Freedom-Loving Americans, ready, willing and able to make a difference in their communities. Our county leaders are doing amazing things in their areas, spreading the word like never before. Aside from this (HUGE) two hour event, this network of volunteers is growing into something much more powerful!

    Look it doesn't matter who you elect.............. Be them Reps or Dems, get rid of the mind set that you actually make a difference to the world and the world economy, you don't anymore.... America doesn't really produce anything, unless you count unrest and hate in the world (And I am not trying to be facetious here) Old saying "Charity begins at home", start looking after yourselves because quite seriously, no on else really gives a toss..................

    Lack of Sound Regulation caused the banking collaspe, you all remember 2005 & 2006 Senator Dodd was chairman of the Senate Banking Committee whose job was to provide OVER SIGHT. We as ordinary citizens who had lived and paid through the Home Savings an Loan fiasco, knew that those adds in the paper for low interest morgages, no verification, were the sighns of the coming disaster. There should be "Simple Sound Common Sense Regulation" to protect the citizens from "Corporate Crookery" and "Wall Street Wankers". Stability for the dollar can be achieved by a return to the gold standard, The dollar printing press can be taken off overtime and put on part time. Close Corporate loop holes and end the welfare tax cuts, for the "Royal Rich. Lets get "Political Correct" out of the picture, and make "COMMON SENSE " Legal again. VOTE FOR RON PAUL, our only hope.

    First, good, objective reporting, "The President isn't listening." Second, yeah, we need less regulation. Because it was too much regulation that allowed the financial mess, the CDS's, the 40:1 leverage, the oil spill, let's have a nuclear accident over here because we ease up on regulations. Let's use Critical Thinking! Because we still had a recession, does NOT mean that the actions didn't work. Just bec. unemployment still went up does NOT mean stimulus didn't work. They would've been worse!

    It's a shame that Ron Paul needs more media exposure, but he's getting it in the wrong places, like FAUX News. They've tried to downplay him every chance they get, even though they let him on the (side) show in order to portray their "fair and balanced" bullshit.

    The reason Obama won is because he's a "good speaker." People were fed the bullshit and believed it because he's convincing. Ron Paul lacks the smooth speaking but what he says should win everyone over because he is NOT LYING. All we have to point out is that Obama went to school to lie and manipulate within the rules "Lawyer" and paul went to school to figure out the problem and fix it in the most appropriate way (Doctor) Who the hell would vote for Obama in Paulvs Obama? Only idiots.

    1. Identity Supressed

      I disagree. Obama won in 2008 because of George W. Bush and the six years that President enjoyed a Republican dominated Congress, yet still failed to deliver on every promise except tax cuts. Most of the Bush voters tax cuts were much smaller than the tax increases (other than directly on income) that Bush and RINO's fostered through their unfunded mandates to the States. Tax shifting, not tax reduction, for spending under Bush and the Republicans rose over 25% NOT INCLUDING the costs of the wars, which were funded primarily through seperate appropriations (dishonest).

      So people rejected McCain as more of the same, and believed the liar from Chicago. Well, that's not going to happen again, at least, many people now realize Barack Obama IS the 3rd term of George W. Bush. Obama is Black-Bush!

      This is why Republicans must nominate Ron Paul if they want to retire Barack Obama. No other Republican amoung the announced candidates has any credibility except Ron Paul. Obama will defeat those other guys, for the common response when disliking both choices is to go with the devil you know. This is proven every election, where the same old pieces of shit keep getting elected, over and over again.

      Dudanation12 is not even close. I was a Republican voter until Dubya. And with that senile old fart Keating,er,McCain there really was no choice. Dumbya ruined any chance for the elitist Republicans. He was a dismal failure and nobody with political savvy wanted him around come campaign time.
      Paul was my preference, but once the GOP tabbed McCain and that Tina Fey look-alike no way in hell I was voting Republican.
      McCain made three critical mistakes.
      1. He didn't run like hell when he had photo-ops with Dumbya.
      2. He admitted that he knew nothing about the economy.
      3. He let some idiot(probably a right-wing religious nut) select his running mate.
      Obama was the only choice for any thinking Independent voter.

    Even if the debt is rise, USA is gone DEFAULT because the US goverment is assuming that it is in bankrupcy, when they aprove the rise of the debt they are asssuming that the US governemt is bankruped.
    The investors worldwide are loking at the US bonds, are looking at the value of the dollar and they are looking at a country that is in RECESSION, but worst if they approve the rise of the debt, its gone be DEFAULT.

    We have to understand why there is a need to create new money.Everyone who works in the USA adds to productivity.You may find a faster more efficient way of doing your job for example.This adds to the wealth of the overall economy.You may get a pay rise for your efforts but the Govt takes most of this as tax.The US Federal Reserve creates this new money to equal your productivity and loans it to the US Govt as debt.The Govt has to tax you to pay for the debt created by your increases in your productivity. Hence in the West, the more growth we have, the more debt we incur.

    China has many Govt banks which produce 80% of it's money debt free.This is why China even during hard times has a growth rate of 9%.Their domestic consumption is growing now and they will be less reliant on the West.

    So our system penalises diligence,hardwork and innovation.The other issue is inflation.Our system must have inflation because the private central banking system constantly milks our economies of cash for them to function adaquately.Inflationary money is counterfeiting since it depreciates our spending and earning capacity.So we are on this constant treadmill of debt created by our increases in productivity and theft via infaltionary money to keep enough money in our economies for them to function.So we have an economic system in a state of perpetual economic collapse.Hence the boom and bust cycles.Small business cannot plan or function properly in such a climate.This is a system of economic destruction, whereby the Wall St Vultures backed by the Central Banks rule over a scene of carnage.

      Yes but China depends on US over consumption of all their over produced products which depends on bubble economics to sustain. This all leads back to the ludicrous nature of CFR and all their stupid greedy arrogant treason of shipping US Jobs over seas for better profits; total ludicrous insanity that could only be made possible if the creators of CFR controlled US Monetary Policy, Private Banks, the media and much more and more as such.

      Look at CFR’s foundation. Off the back of anti trust laws and their escape plan was the establishment of the Federal Reserve which gave them the power to issue US dollars without the consent of our Congressional Representatives through the very same private banks that they own and control. Perfect way to dis anti trust laws, yes, but this does not make them an Elite Master Race or more intelligent then the rest of US it just shows how much of dirty two faced, back stabbing scoundrels they are.

      This debt ceiling debate is such an irritating thorn to the 50% of Intelligent Americans who stopped voting many decades ago. We need Ron Paul now people or it will be all over for US. We will be assimilated and all resistors will be eliminated if we do not get someone like Ron Paul into Office! CFR’s Global Economy is not sustainable and they know it but you still need to know this. CFR’s plan is to cull Humanity so they can still enjoy their power and glory. What a pathetic shame this is!

      CFR and all their arrogant two faces back stabbing something for nothing users are like a bad tooth inside the mouth of the US. We all know the only way to get rid of the pain is to yank out the bad tooth.

      You think that this cannot happen but you know history, and know that terrible things have happened. But we are still deceived on why those things happened and the Elite are still making the same mistakes all over again. Why? Because they refuse to respect the US Constitution of the United States of America; that’s why!

      Let Us join together and yank out the bad tooth! Eventually the bleeding will stop and the pain will go away. This we must try and do as a People. It is the only way my friends. God’s Angels will help US if we simply just work through our responsibilities within the Natural Laws of the Universe. Yes I found Ques Ut Deus, but in the most unlikely place. I look very much forward to showing where I found it.

        Douglas we must continually make the connection between increases in the money supply and increases in productivity.Make it personal and people will understand.Too many do not make the association between the Feds' creation of money and individual productivity.People think that money is the source of power when in fact it is productivity.

        Obama has the economy on the path to total chaos.He must stop the wasteful spending, bring the troops home and start rebuilding the USA.It starts with letting people keep their money by lowering taxes and getting rid of the FED.

        This is a must see ; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qIhDdST27g This doco was awarded The Biff International award for best documentary.L Frank Baum had deep economic meaning for us in' The Wizard of Oz' which only now has come to light.

      Ross Johnson, you fundamentally don't understand money.
      Money is a medium of exchange and a store of value.
      If the money supply did not increase, and through technology productivity increases, you could earn THE SAME, but everything would become cheaper.

      Your savings would INCREASE in value (even with 0% interest), and your wage would buy MORE goods (i.e. increase your standard of living).

      It saddens me that you display this ignorance about money. You probably equate the green notes in your wallet with 'money', but fail to realise that those 'dollar bills' are neither dollars, nor bills. They are Federal Reserve Notes (read them carefully).
      What is a FRN? It is a CLAIM on a debt. What is the debt? A US Treasury note.

      A gold coin on the other hand, once you exchange it for some good, has no promise behind it, no claim and no debt. It stands as an asset by itself. This was how things went from barter (exchanging various different goods) to using a common medium of exchange. Various mediums were used, including stones, shells, wood etc, but gold has through thousands of years been the one that has been constantly chosen by people.

      FRN's are used as mediums of exchange due to legal tender laws, which (as the note states) are 'tender for all debts public and private'. This is FIAT (by edict), there is NOTHING backing that note (except another note).

      Even the bible talks about silver and gold coins, over 2,000 years ago, and the Chinese, Aztec, Mayans, Jews etc. were using gold 5,000 years ago.

      Debasing a gold coin (adding cheaper metals) was punishable by death, but kings and emporer's would do this to fund wars. Ring a bell? The US government has debased your dollar so much so that 40 years ago a dollar could buy you 1/35th an ounce of gold, and today it can only buy you 1/1600th an oz of gold. You only understand this if I call it 'inflation' and you realise that a family could survive on 1 income 40 years ago, and could buy a car and house and pay it off, yet 40 years later, we are more efficient at building cars and houses and yet a 2 income family cannot afford it.

      You need to read up on money. Ron Paul's gold commission's report, or 'the case for gold' is a good start, as is The Theory of Money and Credit by Ludwig von Mises.

      Please do some research and open your eyes.

    Don't blame Obama and the Democrats, it's in the mess it is in because of 8 years of Reaganomics.

    Under Ronald Reagan, the US went from being the world's largest creditor nation to the largest debtor nation in just a few years - and you have remained the largest debtor nation ever since. In 1981, Reagan's first year in office, the US was a net creditor to the tune of $140.9bn. By 1984, that had shrunk to just $3.3bn - and the next year, the US shifted from being a creditor nation to a debtor nation for the first time in almost 70 years. By 1987, the US was a net debtor by $378.3bn - the largest debtor nation in the world. The figure rose to $532.5bn by the end of 1988, when Reagan left office. (Thanks to Paul Rosenburg for the above info)

    Bush Senior and that moron son of his continued it.

    This is probably the best thing I have ever read with regard to opposing political ideologies;

    Until conservatives once again hold Republicans to the same standard they hold Democrats, they will have no credibility and deserve no respect. They can start building some by admitting to themselves that Bush caused many of the problems they are protesting.

    I like Ron Paul knows his stuff certainly, but to have the belief that he will lead you out of the shithole that your country is in is quite frankly laughable. Mind you if he gets in he might be the first Republican to actually do something positive for your country since Eisenhower. With regard to Sarah Palin if she decides to run and gets the nomination please do the world a favour and don't vote for her, if you do and she wins, you will seriously be a laughing stock, and you can kiss your arses goodbye if she gets into power.
