    Then why don’t you have a shot at explaining what is so “dead wrong” about his ideas/approach.

    what Ron Paul says goes over alot of peoples heads so therefore they dont believe him. But the people that support him and believe what he says are truly awake and aware of whats going on. So for anybody that supports him Id like to say to you GOOD JOB! You actually have a clue

    How many future States do you think Mitt Romney would win, if the 4 minute video below is turned into a succinct Ad — showing Mitt’s lifelong stand — and run many times on TV prior to elections?

    My take is: None!

    Hmm, let me see, Do I vote for someone who is saying the same things the last 10 presidents have, or vote for someone who says it the way it is? It doesnt matter. Whoever the Fed/people in power want to be president WILL be. Electoral votes are all that matters. You can vote 100% of votes for Ron Paul and he still won’t get in…

    Fiat currency fucking works until gold gets involved, because it’s the bankers who use the gold against us. End the Fed but, keep fiat economy around and keep big banks out of the way.

    Mitt Romney = Judas Goat

    If not aware of this olden days’ meaning — here it is:

    When sheep are led to be slaughtered, they instinctively feel something is wrong. So, mill around and bleat, but won’t enter the gate leading to the one waiting to smash their heads with a sledge hammer. So, a Judas goat is placed in the pen. The Judas goat is trained to associate with sheep or cattle, leading them through the gate, and passing it safely — while its own life is spared, the ones flowing get their brains bashed!

    Mitt will lead us — and at the end of the gate, Bama will wield the sledge hammer….

    The quran told us this 1400 years ago. Real Money is Gold and Silver. It tells us that the only way to economic success is through free markets.

    The only way to prevent voter fraud is to get a receipt.

    When I invest into a product — buying a steak at the supermarket per say — they give me a receipt for my investment (shows the item code# and the date and time of my investment (purchasing in good faith, upon accountability by vendor, that I received the right product))!

    Elections MUST be held to at least the same standard, as buying a steak — when people invest into their Right To Vote, give them a VALID receipt for their investment!

    If States can issue millions of Lottery Tickets weekly, that cannot be forged — why not be FORCED to do the same during the rare elections?!

    Without a RECEIPT, what government assurance do you have that your VOTE actually COUNTED…?!

    I am sorry for all the comments on your video – but I feel strongly about solving the paradox of money & the misconception folks have about what money is – this is why we have economic-political conflicts that cause wars, genocide & slavery – these are problems our species must solve if we are to be apt to survive. – I will be making a video from these comments on my channel.

    All the best

    Part 8) conclusion – This thus solves the paradox as it is a system that relies on the talents and hard work of individuals and the national-society-community working as a co-operative network – developing socia information connections between everyone so that imperfect & secret knowledge becomes a disadvantage – the strength of a matrix of co-operatives is that they promote aptness to survival via reward for worker-share holders responsibility & investment in effort & R&D as profits r invested

    Part 8) This co-operative model of Central Banking with an index of all the worth of utility from goods & services which included via the use of co-operative model firm’s share prices mean that currency price signals, asset & investment vales will converge – thus keeping the currency & money expansion rate in harmony with technological change’s extraction of utility from total known resources.

    Part 7 – So while I support Ron Paul’s main idea that the US constitution is the US’s highest law & should be followed via the consent of the national-community (with rights & equality in balance under the rule of law) by amendments & elections. In economic terms the model he proposes does not provide a total solution. The Co-operative model (where all a firms shares are owned by its work force) in this example the National Central Bank’s share performance as a co-operative is reflected.

    Part 6 continued) so money is both a totality but real money volumes can grow as technology allows utility to grow – so this signal could be reflected in currency based on a complete index of good & services.
    The only way you are going to solve the paradox of cheap credit fiat currency vs inflated asset prices which are distorting price signals via manipulation by banks (anyone who lends short & invests long) – is to have national-communities like US or EU to own central banks as co-operatives.

    Part 6) So if we have commodity gold money – this would be another distortion just like the petro-dollar as it still relies on the manipulation of price signals of all commodities based a single commodity that is held – yet again by enemies of the west rather than the definition of real money (all goods& services = utility defined by the exploitation of total resources by technology) – continued

    Part 5) So free-markets & Marxist models from a western rationalist empirical point of view should be treated as totalitarian ideas (if the proponents are intent on implementing those models) or conceptually flawed memes. What we have in US Central banking is a drive to reduce the true value of oil revenues that the US’s enemies being oil (commodities producers) get & vice versa – so the present system is the worst of both fractional reserve banking & commodity money = petro-dollar. Its a Trap!

    Part 4) However Free-market economist, like Marxists (& other within systems based on manipulations of capital – machines that produce other machines – i,e dominance of commodities & materials over human motivations, talent information, free-will & the citizenship model =nation) give no empirical model based on individual or collective social interest of the National community to produce this balance in market forces which would create a more equitable positive out-come for all economic agents.

    Part 3) 3rd Concept is investments & assets which means you want to increase the value of these assets (commodities or housing stocks etc) to get a return on the utility you fore go by investing in that activity rather than using money for other purposes – free-market economist believe such contradictory ideas can balance with each other in equilibrium – see next part.

    Part 2) continued – so the true value of money is not qualitatively known & so the true required quantity of currency to produce a true signal of the value of money is not known (as the application of technology to resources in totality is not known & as we exact uttility from the resources we can use means we are constantly changing the context & thus value of money within what we know) – so real money’s value must reflect this change of reality.

    Part 1) The Paradox of “money” as a concept is that it has 3 rival ideas, currency (unit of exchange, either data or physical objects that convey price signals – so you obviously want the least amount of value so the cost of or limits of currency is not effecting the exchange of information which you are using to get useful commodities like food or water) on the other hand real money (unit of value effected by the utility which effects it via the application of technology to resources)
