    Ron Paul KO's Shalom Bernanke (King Fed)

    Enjoy this priceless video --- and spread it like wildfire!
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Best moment.

    Ron: Is Gold money?
    Shalom: Aah... No.
    Ron: Than why central banks hold it (gold)?
    Shalom: Aah...it (gold) is called reserves.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    LOL --- If Gold is NOT money, then why should International and our Central Banks hold Gold in vaults, and not just throw it in a river...?!

    Ron Paul:

    I'm afraid that your Revolution is hopeless, but I cheer you on and will continue
    to support you.

    Consider the following quotations from a man many have forgotten:

    "How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think." and "He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future." Adolph Hitler.

    If they would think they'd realize that big government means ever bigger
    government and that, eventually, that means totalitarianism, like Hitler's Germany. Is this what they want? ("They" being the "people",and the "youth", in the Hitler quote, i.e, our Voters.)

    Your efforts are diametrically opposed to big government, which is self-evident to all who can think.

    People elect their representative to succeed, not to fail continuously as Ron Paul has. He's only won his district because he's part of the machine

    What precisely has Ron Paul accomplished?

    You should be a politician. They also think that the measure of success in their line of work is quantity of laws passed. Also someone can propose the greatest bill ever and just because politicians owned by special interests, big money and lobbies don't vote for it doesn't mean it wasn't good. Nice try at trolling but your logic comes up short.

    Ron Paul would have been a totally and colossal failure as president just as he was a total failure as congressman and perennial loser in primaries.

    Over 600 bits of legislation were presented by Ron Paul over his 35 years as a Washington insider. 1 was passed into law.

    This is the libertarian messiah; the lord of failure.

    Congressman Paul,
    Thank you for the time you take to try to educate the people. It's unfortunate that some take the time to correct spelling or insult people that are not the focus of the article. Your intelligence and wisdom are lost amongst fools. Leading the thirsty to water is a wonderful thing and if the dry mouths refuse to drink because their ego is bigger than the desire for life giving water then dry sand is what they will find in the end. And in the end they have only themselves to blame.

    Rand Paul is the biggest disgrace in the world for endorsing Mitt Romney! I truly believe that the Democratic Governor of Kentucky Steve Beshear would run for U.S. Senate in 2016 and embarrass Rand Paul big time with attack ads on Rand Paul disgracefully endorsing Mitt Romney on The Sean Hannity Show!

    incredible words coming from a true patriot!! Ron Paul!

    Our government's legitimacy has been questionable for several decades now, having let many presidents who committed War crimes get away with such barbaric atrocities. It's time we STOP paying the international bankers(federal reserve) through the corrupt tax system, and have BUSH AND OBAMA thrown in jail!

    I am happy that the Fascist Governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson did NOT win the 5% votes at all! Good riddance for supporting a humanitarian war in Uganda and supported drone strikes in the middle east as well! Gary Johnson is like a used car salesman when he made an outrageous statement on the anniversary on September 11, 2011 by saying that these troops are here to keep us safe in the middle east and others as well!

    This stupid, artificial construct called the fiscal cliff is not the precipice on which we are perched (remember Congress created it when they could not decide how to divide up the bounty of our tax dollars and the unlimited press of the US Treasury). Rather we are on the edge of determining whether the experiment of American democracy can succeed.

    When the common man must wake each morning worrying what the Federal Government will do to change his life forever, we are no longer free but simple wards of the state. When the federal government works to break our ties to family and community we are not free but simple wards of the state. When business places more emphasis on lobbying than on product and service innovation we no longer have capitalism but a corrupt economy driven by the state. In short we have totalitarianism.

    That anyone believes elections have provided a mandate for federal government action is a farce. Elections are about electing people, most of which were chosen as the lesser of only bad options. In earlier times when we did silly things and our country deviated off track, there was a common morality—the Bible and God—to which we could appeal and the themes there would eventually resonate. Those days are no longer. And while we need to find a new morale authority on which we can collectively appeal, it must not stop us from making some changes to our predicament. The course of our country still only changes because its citizens say “Enough!”

    Against such totalitarianism we have only one tool, ourselves. In many respects we have forgotten it in this country but we have been able to see its success around the world against corrupt, dictatorial regimes. We must stand up individually and shout “Enough” and march collectively to change the course of American history. In to the streets, in to the fields, in to the interstate highways, we must march. Peaceful but persistent, energized and enduring.

    The patriots and martyrs in this battle will be those individuals that forgo the streams of government money to make a stand on principle placing progeny above their own needs and wants. Having found their way to be successful “legally” in this corrupt system they instead will cut the cord with their only safety net being family, friends and community. They may be individuals, they may be companies heretofore bloated on cronyism. Let the statues be erected to them! Let them be our inspiration!

    The fight will be hard and it will be long but there are 3 immediate tangible goals:

    1. Congress must pass immediately and the President must sign into law a measure that leads to government spending at no more than 18% of GDP by 2018. 18% by 2018! And all future budgets should be stable below this level until clear plans are put in place to shrink the federal government even more. No one will starve at this level. It is at the level of what government spending was in 2000. And it is more than enough for the federal government at this point.
    2. Congress must pass immediately and the President must sign into law a measure making Congress—the US Senate and US House—a part-time legislature whose members live in their home districts with limited staff and that convenes 3 times throughout the year for not more than 2 weeks. Let the lobbyists come to mainstreet and bolster the local economies rather than simply the economy of Washington, DC. Most of the work done by this body has been harmful to the country not helpful. With too much money, too much staff and too much lobbying we get incomprehensible legislation like Dodd-Frank that pulls the wool over the eyes of the American people and lets “too big too fail” political patrons continue their thievery.
    3. Congress must pass immediately and the President must sign into law a measure that requires every federal agency to list on the home page of their web site the following information: Budget, number of employees, goals of the agency, performance goals and measurement to those goals. Accountability for the spending of our tax dollars must begin now and this is a small starting point.

    Of course much more work will need to be done to restore the balance in favor of the individual in this country. Much will be required to dissolve the federal government back to its core functions of national defense and maintaining a level playing field for interstate commerce. Much will be required to bolster our local governments and state governments. Much will be required to teach us personal responsibility and accountability.

    But in this winter of our discontent, these 3 goals are achievable and can lead to our American Spring in which the foundations of our American Democracy are restored and the hard work ahead begins. Peaceful but Persistent, Energized and Enduring.

    It starts by shouting ENOUGH! Now RISE!
