    Ron Paul has ruined his reputation and the libertarian party’s reputation for all time. Gary Johnson is not on the ballot in many states.. just a wasted vote. Welcome to hell libertarians. Maybe you can get it right sometime in the next 50 years?

    How ironic, the Republican party voted that they don’t want to be republican.

    I can not deny I find it interesting that you are using the statement of Mark A. Calabria. A fervent supporter of auditing the fed to discredit RP’s audit the fed. “Although I believe it to be a grave mistake to continue to entrust the Federal Reserve with bank supervision and regulation, Congress has chosen to maintain, and extend, that situation”.-Calabria Here it gets strange: not to discredit you, he says the Fed is a creature of congress, and he agrees w/ me so we should b able to audit!

    I hope you’re not under the delusion that the Democratic party is any different.

    Did warrantless wiretapping end under Obama? Was the Patriot Act rescinded like he promised? Did Guantanamo close? Did the wars end?

    I remember when Democrats were against this, but when the leader of their party adopts it, like Pavlog’s dog, they drool and forget.

    No one should be surprised that the Republican Party did something contrary to democratic principles. It runs on an authoritarian philosophy.

    Actually Paul’s audit the Fed bill initiated the first congressional audit of the federal reserve in US history. He’s also the original creator of the Tea Party; before the neo-conservatives jumped aboard (Sarah Palin).

    He’s made the Federal Reserve a hot topic in Washington. His no nonsense logic in debates influenced other GOP candidate stances and talking points.

    His impact has already been nationwide and is accelerating as we speak.

      Original creator of the Tea Party? LOL. What a Joke. He was the original creator of the Pot Party. The Goofy old asshole is about as truthfull as Teddy Kennedy and he’s about as stoned as Kennedy was drunk. And his “no nonsense logic” was actually his insane babbeling. This might have sounded like no nonsense to you but in your case, we can see where you might think that.

    To find the irony in your post, read your first sentence. Then read the second. Not only was what you wrote covered under what you wrote, it’s also an associative logical fallacy.

    Now. There are two fundamental thoughts on governance. To expand it or to decrease it. Those who want government expansion overall are typically left wing. Those who want to decrease government overall are typically right wing.
    Romney and Obama both want to expand government and are nearly identical in policy.

    Don’t you see?? This is a major victory for Ron Paul. Clear corruption in the GOP, now fully exposed. If Dr. Paul runs third party! He’s instantly way more credible than GOP and DEMS. The whole point was to prove we don’t need or want Either, we’ve got our own party…and we’d win the general election with it. because it’s should be clear to america, all of it, that corrupt, “politics as usual” in america, just lost!

    Ron Paul needs to know he will have our support if he runs 3rd party. The only way to do that is on the Libertarian ticket since Gary Johnson is on the ballot in 50 states. He said he would step down if Ron Paul wanted to run. Of course, both Romney and Obama are trying to change that in several states. We will know tomorrow what his announcement is, but in the meantime, flood his congressional email and let him know we need him to continue the fight and that the way he was treated at the RNC is not the way to leave his 30 year legacy. We also need to continue having an intellectual debate of ideas and issues. People are starting to wake up, and we can’t afford to wait.

    “GAO, gives as an example a bank borrowing $10 billion at night, repaying it the next morning and then borrowing it again in the evening. The running tally would count that as $20 billion borrowed.” That sounds more like laundering to me. Given the fact that fiat currency is created via loans. If anything this is suspicious behaviour. If you are making out that the Fed is some innocent agency, which has the peoples best interest at heart, well then you are very mistaken.

    Wow! Unbelievable! When will we get to the point when dictators, I mean political representatives, are simply appointed in to office by, not the people, but others who are in positions of power? It seems to be going in that direction. It is the “Good Ol’ Boy” system at work.

    The Fed is audited. The GAO did not find 16 trillion handed out. The 16 trillion was the total overnight lending. That money was lent out and paid back every day. Look up article titled “Did the Fed create $15 trillion during the bailout and send $5 trillion overseas?” on politifact. The Fed conducts monetary policy independently but they answer to Congress. You are too stupid to comprehend the concept of an independent central bank.

    The reason Ron Paul didn’t get the nomination is that Israel actually owns the federal reserve and by printing the dollar they have bribed most of the delegates. They have also bought over 90% of cable channels such as FOX News, CNN and MSNBC which have tricked people into supporting either Obama or Romney (both men are owned by Israel) and into thinking Ron Paul’s ideas (like ending the federal reserve) are crazy. Here’s a link to a video that explains the conspiracy. /watch?v=Qw7IVpCE40k

    I agree with you about the parties. In fact I would venture to say there is still 2 parties the one that will continue the downward spiral which is split between the Reps and Dems, and then there is the party for the freedoms of the American people, the Libertarian party. It’s just a shame the media is controlled by the corrupt split party because the Libertarian party is nonexistent to them and thus to the American public as well.

    If what your saying is true than an audit of the fed should be no problem. The GOA in a very limited audit found 16 trillion had been handed out to private bankers around the world.Who is responsible for paying that back? The Federal Reserve answers to no authority. With these comments you keep making I should have known something so elementary would escape you. By all means don’t actually research what I’m saying. Just stick your head back up your rear and think happy, happy joy, joy thoughts.

    Ron Paul was the last great candidate he didn’t make the cut cause he was too honest,he stood and stands for the people who once believed in a true democracy. If there is one thing I and many have learned is that an honest man has no place in todays’ overly corrupt political system . The posing Republican and Democrat leaders are both one in the same they rely on each other to keep the cycle going so no change is made. Capitol overrides any form of government, and of course Democracy

    Read this article: ” Ron Paul never had the delegates to win” in the Washington Times by Shaun Connell who is ” a libertarian writer who is passionate about free-market economics, intellectual honesty, and bringing back the gold standard. He’s the founder of Capitalism Institute and the author of Live Gold Prices.”

    Ron Paul did not WIN a 5 state plurality, emphasis on WIN. His supporters got themselves selected as delegates and refused to support the winner. Look at Nevada for an example. The delegates were bound to support Romney and they refused. Also, the rule change from 5 to 8 does not take effect until the next election. It was not why Ron Paul was shut down. The only states he had a plurality were Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, and Louisiana. He only had 4, he lost. Get over it.

    Control of the dollar is not in the hands of a private bank. It’s in control of the Federal Reserve. You apparently are one of the idiots who think the Fed is a private bank. It’s not The Federal Reserve’s derives its authority from the Congress of the United States.. That means it is not a private bank. The Fed’s domain name is gov for fuck sake. How could it be a private bank? The 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks are organized similarly to private corporations.Maybe that’s why you’re confused

    There is truly no hope for the delusion your living in. Control of the dollar should not be in the hands of a private bank. Thomas Jefferson warned us about this.”He did not win a five state plurality”…these are your words yet it doesn’t take much fact checking to discover that even with the RNC’s attempts to change plurality to 10 state(which failed) he still held a 5 state plurality. At this point I you better bring some facts or get tossed into the troll bin!

    “The GOP is smarter than we”!

    While, We The People, have hopes of saving our Nation — THEY, the GOP Elite, have none.

    We are idealistic — believers that Truth, Liberty and Justice will eventually prevail, thus saving US from imminent economic collapse and the loss of all freedoms!

    The GOP Establishment has no such illusions — THEY want to assure that ONLY THEY and THEIR OWN have first dibs on the choices pieces of meat, when the carving of the American People starts. THEY do not want rejuvenation of the Republican Party, nor is stagnation enough — PURGING is needed, so THEY are first in line to pick our bones clean when the economic collapse starts. (Same goes for the Dems in power).
    ——————————————————————————-

    We, the Real American People (the producers), are the HOST — and THEY, the Non-Producers, are the Parasites!

    While the Host was strong and healthy in the past — the parasites fed well with little notice on OUR loss.

    But, NOW the Parasites have become GREATER than the HOST — meaning in order to survive, THEY have to suck MORE blood out of US than we can produce for ourselves, let alone THEM.

    Realizing this, THEY are preparing the road ONLY for THEMSELVES and THEIR OWN to strip our carcass clean (after they’ve sucked US dry).
    ————————————————————————

    Now, back to working two jobs Real Americans, so you can produce some more to feed THEM longer…until THEY are finally ready to send you to the glue factory… (“Animal Farm” by George Orwell).

    What irony? Your assertion that Romney is a leftist is not only laughable it is sad and delusional. The definitions of different sections of the political spectrum are not that simple. Just because you can’t understand the nuances of having multiple ideals from different parts of the spectrum doesn’t mean you get to fit everyone nice and tightly into two non-existent extremes that NO ONE fits into. Read a book and quit spreading your simple-minded view of the political world.
