    Why is Krugman lying – He originally accepted as did Bernanke that the Fed was the cause of the start of the great depression, now he’s just making things up.

    If your dumb enough to believe ‘government statistics’ fair enough, but compare that to the website shadow statistics, which shows how inflation used to be calculated, not skewed towards goods that inflate less. What happens when QE has to come to an end?

    So, one year ago at this time Ron Paul said inflation was on the horizon. Today, inflation is extremely low (barely above 1%) and the people who cheered him on then, cheer him on now (!)

    Of course, Ron Paul’s new schtick is to declare the Fed “rigged”.

    How convenient.

    If things go the way you said = “I told you so”.

    If things go the OPPOSITE of what you said (like Ron Paul) = “The Fed is rigged!!”

    Never let it be said that Ron Paul & his cult doesn’t have their head up their ass.

    To those who own gold, lack of inflation is theft. With an increasing population, gold becomes more valuable (since there is a relatively fixed supply). The price of gold *should* increase, and not necessarily linearly either.

    Also, the money you paid to work one year ago should be worth less than the money you are paid today for the same labor. The work you do now is more valuable than the work you did further in the past. Lack of inflation is theft.

    Obviously Krugman has no idea what the words “Legal Tender Laws” means.
    I have rarely heard such stupidity.

    Hey, Krugman! Didn’t you notice that the “Great Depression” happened only AFTER the Federal Reserve was established?
    Naa, too simple.

    The idiocy of Keynesian economics is to assume that savings is irrelevant.
    And Diocletian’s policies are EXACTLY what Krugman promots, the fool.

    Please, advise Ron Paul of the following:

    1) We will continue to invest our precious time and hard-earned money to the Ron Paul Campaign (since our Future depends on Ron Paul winning).

    2) We are strong, and justifiably energized, individuals that believe in our ability to succeed without having our hands held in each step leading to the State’s Convention.

    3) However, we DEMAND that at least two Senior Campaign Staff members be sent and PRESENT at EACH State Convention (one, a Parliamentary Procedures Expert, and one that oversees and guides us through the pitfalls and traps, that the GOP in collusion with Mitt have set).

    4) Bombarding Texas with Ads against flip-flopping anti-gun Mitt (spend most of the money we’ve sent you — since Texas is a do-or-die State).

    Posters here have properly stated — we have given our blood, sweat, tears and money to this Just Cause — so, do what we ask in return!

    The 3 people who disliked this video all agreed with Paul Krugman whne he said “a little inflation is good”… This guy is such a tool and I feel sorry for his students… This guy should not be allowed to teach.

    Shocker In Tampa — Ron Paul Wins!
    ————————————–

    These WILL be the headlines next day — here is why:

    According to RNC Rule #38 — at the Tampa Convention NONE of the Delegates are ACTUALLY Bound! Delegates can vote according to their own judgment and conscience — and are NOT bound to vote according to how most delegates from their state vote.

    Precedent was set in 2008 Utah by Legal Council for the RNC (stating: The RNC does not recognize a state’s binding of national delegates, but considers each delegate a free agent who can vote for whoever they choose).

    Also, the Republican (and Democratic) Parties are Private Organizations — so voting within a party is NOT bound by Election Law!
    ——————————————————

    What does this mean? It clearly shows that ANY or ALL delegates can abstain from voting in the 1st round. Or in other words — Bye-bye Mitt !!!

    What do we need to do? Push for as many more delegate wins for Ron Paul as humanly possible — so a Ron Paul victory in Tampa is assured!

    But most importantly NOW — SHARE this information (spread it like wildfire)!

      Rule #11 shows Valid Grounds for Mitt Romney to be Removed from the Republican Ticket!

      http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?376049-Mitt-Romney-is-going-to-be-invalidated-as-nominee-of-the-Republican-party!-GTFIH

      It is certainly a Valid Cause to remove Mitt..but even WHEN he is NOT Removed (since the RNC will never allow it), the ruckus caused BY IGNORING THIS RULE will be EVEN more effective as a Publicized Weapon showing Mitt’s COLLUSION with the RNC Leadership, in order to CIRCUMVENT the Legal Election Process!

    The way we got over the depression was less spending, bringing the troops home and liquidating the debt. This was the prosperous America his parents luved through. Now he saying if we have less spending it wouldnt help but hurt and prolong the recession?? What a effn joke. People like that deserve to have their asses kicked or their credentials stripped. Choose 1!!

    It’s no surprise people have forgotten about the Long Depression from 1873-1879 and then the Panic of 1893 as pre-Fed recessions/depression. I like Ron Paul’s foreign policy, I’m a bit more reserved when it comes to his libertarian economic and social ideas, but it’s in the interests of Ron Paul supporters to temper their enthusiasm because otherwise, if you make grand, unsupported statements like this on the news and are exposed as lying or miseducated, that wouldn’t look good.

    Sign petition!

    http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/call-for-resignation-of-rnc-chairman-reince/

    Just spoke extensively with Jeff Bales (520) 465-3645 — super nice guy (erudite and logical)! Here is the run down:

    1) He initiated the Call for Resignation of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus (Due to violation of the RNC’s Rule #11).

    2) Other members in agreement started the Petition (given above) ASKING for consensus to have Reince Priebus RESIGN.

    3) If Reince Priebus does not resign QUICKLY — by the mounting pressure of this Petition (that’s why ALL need to sign it) — he has also contacted Ron Paul’s Camp with this info.

    Ron Paul being the INJURED Party — is the most likely ONE to quickly succeed in winning a legal action! (Others, CONFIRMED Delegates ONLY, could also start legal proceedings on their behalf — but, it is advisable they coordinate with Ron Paul’s legal staff).

    @L Parker
    Dr. Paul does not promise us a rosegarden…we have to suffer too…we..USA.. are broke.

    who would you rather suffer for?…..someone who knows we are broke and is making progress to get us out of deep shit……..or for someone who gambles 10.000 $ a time?…and doesnot know whats going on en is a puppet for the big banks and their friends…

    maybe you should stay here a bit longer …you might learn a bit…

      Learn a bit? Of what? Jubilation at uninformed idealism? Hubris isn’t the best way start the journey.

      And what do you mean by “who would you rather suffer for?” As if the voter somehow experiences some pain on behalf of the candidate he or she supports? That seems somewhat…strange.

      Your mention of a $10,000 bet seems to indicate that you dutifully follow Mr. Paul because he can relate to you, not because he has the best resume or chances for success. And the US debt isn’t the predominant issue or problem right now, it’s jobs. Maybe you shouldn’t spend so much time here…

        Thank you. Now, I’m concerned that, instead of responding to my questions, you posted “troll alert.” A troll alert applies to someone posting outrageous messages to bait people to answer. I’m attempting to understand your post. Response? Or more evasion…

    Is anyone here concerned with the way Mr. Paul seems to ramble and repeat himself when he’s asked a question he can’t answer? Perhaps the answer lies in the economics of history, to which we have little facts, and much conjecture. But I guess that’s what “We the People” like.

    Blow dealt to Rmoney over the weekend!

    Ron Paul gains 44 more Delegates — Rmoney gets only 6 !!!

    Rmoney’s camp Attempt TO DEFRAUD the Elections — by sending plants using FAKE delegate badges and circulating FAKE delegate slates, and even impersonating real delegates — BACKFIRES! It only helped to galvanize The People in further rejecting Perfidy Mitt!

    Before:
    Paul —148
    Romney—697

    As of May 7th:
    Paul —192
    Romney—703

    More good news for Ron Paul — according to RNC rule #38, the Mitt has probably lost about 50 bound delegates to him; while Ron Paul has probably gained that number.

    Therefore, it could be that the more accurate numbers are:

    Paul —242
    Romney—653

    Fox New’s REALITY CHECK Show is the source for the above numbers. Watch this video and pay attention the explanation of Rule #38 (from minute 3:15 till end of video –4:23).

      I think you should modify that statement to: “Ron Paul and I know about as much about the economy as astrologists about the universe.”
