    yes it is rigged i seen all the corruption in people when he was running, seen how the media totally ignored him even when he was at the top. this is part of the corruption in this country. but i doubt there would have been many dark years. people would have had to work for a living once again. we would have had to be real americans and stand on our own two feet for a change and not depend on government. i personally would have been fine and it would have made no change to me except more liberty

    No, I'm not simplifying anything. The inflation numbers are much higher than what the federal CPI indicates because of faulty accounting like hedonics. But even by the metrics you've just given, inflation has occurred because you posted a positive inflation number. If goods and services were growing faster than the expansion of money, deflation would be occurring. Why do you think the federal debt is always growing? The fact that prices are always increasing is inflation.

    Ok, you're simplifying this, it's not just how much money is printed versus how much we produce, because we produce way more now, the last data available which is 2011 says we had a 6.7% growth in goods and services, now compare that to inflation which the highest its been in the last 10 years was 4.1%. However, you can't just compare the two numbers, that's not the only thing that matters, there is nothing basic about it, there are many factors there is not enough room here to go into them all.

    Voting is rigged. Also, a Ron Paul victory would've led to the destruction of the petro dollar (and more likely, his assassination) which would've sent the country into chaos. The long term effects might have been positive after many dark years but we need to be real with ourselves. We have built a global economy that is addicted and DEPENDENT on oil and that wasn't a very smart idea.

    The solution is realizing a more stable monetary policy & while most people think they want that-they don't (no more entitlements, no more wars, no more bailouts, but a lot more stability). Until you realize the financial aspects of our economy, it's very hard to comprehend. It's only then that you realize the solution is living within a economy that saves and doesn't advocate a blatant, wasteful economy, and over zealous economic policies isn't allowed because there is no money to overspend.

    No, inflation will only occur as long the government continues to increase the money supply with no proportional growth in goods & services. The government shut down is due to the government not being able to acquire more debt. The increase in the debt limit is simply creating more credit(more debt) to pay for goods & services we can't afford(meaning it goes into the debt).That debt is directly apportioned to every citizen in the US including all future generations.This is just basic economics.

    RP supporters are well read and understand the distopic place we are headed towards. It's frustrating that the lame stream government controlled media destroyed his absolute winning momentum early election cycle 2012 towards become the front runner. Research that and then ask yourself why they were so threatened by the most steadfast representative whom ALWAYS consulted the Constitution before casting any vote on behalf of his constituents. USA=Banana REPUBLIC now. LAWLESSNESS! Good luck sheep!

    Stop using facts and logic, that's just irrational! It's just easier to point the blame on others instead of measuring up to our own faults are realizing that most Americans are responsible for the mess we are in.

    This makes no sense! What are all those federal workers do that are on a furlough! They have no money for rent, food, as well as all other important bills!!!! I think I speak for all Americans when I say those people shouldn't suffer when they have done nothing wrong, it's the damn politicians who should be fired and put in jail!

    So then what goes on the list of things you don't want to fund anymore, then ask the people if they still want those things, if they do they pay higher taxes, taxes in this country are way too low for what we get out of them. Or is the goal to just give everything over to the private sector and hope they have everyone's best interests in mind without any oversight from a de-clawed government.

    So would you say this current government shutdown is doing anything to solve that problem or even address it? The shutdown costs what like 200million per day? So does that do anything except put everyone in to a deeper hole, government doesn't work like a drug addict, where hitting bottom will magically solve the problems. Inflation will always happen as long as people continue to breed so instead of just egging on the plundering to hit that rock bottom faster how about some solutions?

    My republican solution would to be repeal/defund obamacare(forced buying/tax) and stop borrowing money into existence. That would be a great start.

    Ron Paul really is the President. He has much more power than the President in reality, because the President has to follow the dictates of his contributors; Ron Paul is free.

    I've seen estimates that the cost is $1.3B / week. So if this is the case and current debt is $16.7T so plug "((US$ 16.7e12) / (US$ 1.3e9)) / 52 =" into google toolbar and get 247.0414 years. So the expense is a relative term. As a fiscal conservative my concern is with the $17B debt. Both republican and democrat parties have brought us to this point. That debt will have to be paid by our children and I think that is utterly immoral but the last two generations have dealt that hand to our kids.

    Ultimately what he's saying is the day of reckoning is almost here and all the debt and malinvestment that has been created by government is coming to fruition. The economic/currency is collapsing because of inflation, debt, and waste. Then and only then when it collapses well people wake up & see the government can't really afford the wars, government entitlements,and so forth. The US is paying the minimum balance of credit card debt by charging it on other credit cards.

    No, it's both parties that have done the damage. The Democratic Party is on a full on spending spree that is causing inflation and increasing the national debt. So was the Republican party prior to Obama. He's addressing the fact that neither party is different and they both advocate the current debt monetary system that plagues the US and the world, and at the center is the fiat currency The FED literally controls. Until we address those issues the system is going to get worse.

    Is Ron saying that because in the past we just paid our way out of problems this republican tantrum that raises that price more by each day and at what point are those people who can't go back to work no longer employees? So what's the republican solution here, seriously I don't understand, what do they want to happen? Ron is being very cavalier here, but it becomes worse not better with everyday of this nonsense. Republicans are literally putting people out of work right now not figuratively
