    This is why i started hating watching Paul’s videos. You idiots always have to bring up Gary Johnson. Ron Paul is NOT Gary Johnson, Ron Paul is Ron Paul. Go and build his own movement seperated from Paul’s, stop plugging yourself via Ron Paul.

    i beg to differ. The market is controlled by the buying power of the consumer. Price gouging only is allowed if the demand is high enough for it. for example, If a loaf of bread was 50 dollars, then you’d go without bread, therefore the bread maker either drops his price to meet market demand or he goes bankrupt.The collusion of govt allows monopolies by keeping competition out of the “loop”. As long as demand for the product exists, someone will always be there to provide it cheaper.

    Are there enough rich people to buy lots of gas? If you have to fill up two SUV’s and a Lexus, that’s lots of gas. Is it possible that these large purchases with low levels of gas could use up all the gas?

    Gary Johnson basically said the same thing during his debate with Jill Stein.

    Ron Paul schools Barack Hussein:
    “If you don’t know the Constitution (the one you swore to protect) you shouldn’t be in Office.”

    10 minute video — spread it like wildfire!

    (also, note how without a teleprompter Lil’ Hussein can’t put two words together without mumbling, bumbling and stumbling)

      How could we vote this guy back in? I wish that people in these big cities who voted for him could get his whole message. .. all they get is Ron Paul’s denial of things that seem like good things but they never get his reasoning. .. to them they say price gouging is bad, which morally it is, but they don’t get that it would have bought supplies faster instead of waitin for fema to get there. .. people were willing to freeze to death for their hand out. ..if you know you can make money the faster you get there with supplies you hurry which will drive prices down because more supplies means more competition to sell

    I don’t think so but states have the right to secede. But the Federal government would never allow that.

    This is where Ron Paul is off his rocker. Jew bankers and companies with labor overseas want this shit. This idea of free markets governing themselves is laughable. You’ll only see one of two things: 1) price gouging on monopolies – with constant buy-outs of small competitors 2) slave labor having to compete with 3rd world labor

      I see you always with your crude comments, but did you even understand why he would say that. ..I don’t care to argue with u, but I hope you’re genuinely disagreeing. ..idk if you understand that he is against foreign wars, anti gay laws, anti drug, and tax laws… you seem quick to judge without reason which is your right until liberals put a law on that. .. if you don’t believe they will look at the guy who made the YouTube video that supposedly caused the benghazi attack… he is in jail…civil liberties are quickly being taken away from you with all this regulation. ..Ron Paul may seem apathetic but there is educated reasoning

    Think of Cell phones as one example. Initially, they are expensive until the all the people who are willing to pay the high price have been satisfied, then the prices fall rapidly. Only way to keep the prices high is to only create a certain amount of cell phones…ie, Law of Scarcity

    Yes, this is true initially but you have to ask yourself this question, Are there enough rich people that have access to the gas and and will they purchase all the gas? the answer is no. Gas is not a niche market therefore sellers want quantity purchases which forces prices down or the law of scarcity prevails.

    Perhaps, but also those who are rich would also have the means to ship more gas into the area in order to make a profit. They had no incentive to do so.

    If you “price gouge” and noone can afford the gas, the price will lower in order to spur demand. Someone will have a sale, and then someone else will have a bigger sale, and that will continue until the price is reasonable.

      yep, but you need the high price to entice people OUTSIDE the affected area to ship additional supplies at more risk and cost into the area with the hope of making an excess profit (and hoping your damn tanker doesn’t end up in a ditch, or hit by a tree).

    What I mean is that I’d rather have the gas the same day and wait in line at the gas station, not wait a few days if my car’s out of gas
