For those of you who don’t know who Ron Paul is or understand what he is about. Here you go.
The CIA terror experts agree that Paul is the only candidate with the correct anti-terrorism strategy. We continually meddle in the affairs of the world then are surprised when they attack us. The CIA calls it BLOWBACK. It has happened continuously over the last 40 years as a result of our foreign policy. It happened in Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Brazil, and Iran.
People are badly mistaken if they think that the United States is blameless for the attacks on 9/11. The CIA and the independent 9/11 Commission report confirmed that one of the primary reasons these Islamic extremists attacked us was because of our foreign policy. They weren’t attacking us because of our freedom, it is the BLOWBACK that the CIA warned would happen. In fact Osama Bin Laden even said it himself! This whole “good” against “evil” deflection is the tactic the Government uses to evade responsibility for the consequences that America’s imperial projects have generated.
Ron Paul is not an isolationist. He’s not even against going to war. But, per the Constitution, he believes that you must go to war with a DECLARATION of war. Instead our “commander and chief” just does whatever he wants and expects the American people to front the bill. Ron believes in free trade and talking with countries and being friends with other countries but NOT forcing our way of life and values down their throat. You can’t promote Democracy through the barrel of a gun!!! You can’t overthrow elected governments and expect others to listen to what we have to say.
The only correct position is an immediate (and strategic) withdrawal. But before some of you get turned off, let me tell you why.
NONE of the Republicans (except Ron Paul) want to leave. McCain says we should stay for another 100 years and has told his supporters that more wars will follow. There is a real fear of a Draft if McCain takes office. Romney and Huckabee simply say that we will not leave until we “win”. But they fail to define what “winning” is. The fact is that there IS NO WINNING!
The Government is the most masterful public relations machine on the planet. Somehow a connection has been made between 9/11 and Iraq. Yes, Saddam was a dictator who used chemical weapons on his own people (the same weapons we gave him by the way), but Al-Qaeda wasn’t in Iraq. (For those of you saying that we should be in Iraq for human rights violations I can list 20 bigger human rights issues in the world that the U.S. did not send in military even when nearly 2000 times more people died, so don’t fool yourself.)
McCain likes to say that we don’t want to give Al-Qaeda a “safe haven” in Iraq. What?!!! They already have a safe haven in Pakistan and parts of Afghanistan so what do they need Iraq for? There is a group called “Al-Qaeda In Iraq” but that is a separate organization and only accounts for a small fraction of the insurgency we are fighting. We are in the middle of a sectarian war. And it isn’t just Shiites vs Sunnis vs Kurds. It is Shiites vs Shiites and Sunnis vs Sunnis and everyone against us for getting in the way and maintaining an occupying force.
The problem is that our government believed (and maybe is stupid enough to still believe) that if we eliminated Saddam we would be welcomed with open arms as everyone comes together to rebuild Iraq. But people don’t see themselves as Iraqi. They have only been a country since 1932 and before that they were ruled by the British Empire after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. These feuds that we are trying to solve go back hundreds of years. Iraq says that it once owned Kuwait and was trying to rightfully take it back. Iran and Turkey can look back through their history and stake claim to Iraq as well.
The Middle Eastern countries need to stabilize Iraq themselves. It is IMPOSSIBLE for us to do it. Meanwhile we are spending (meaning borrowing from China with interest) billions of dollars per day to fight something that can’t be won.
Does this bring dishonor to our troops? Of course not. They have fought bravely and should return home to parades and honor for a job well done. But this idea that the troops “want to stay and finish what they started” is ridiculous. WE TRAIN THEM to honor their Corps and their Country. Of course they will stay and fulfill their orders! They will stay as long as we tell them to because that is what we train them to do. That is the type of unwavering dedication they have. But their honor and loyalty does not make the policies any more correct. In fact it DISHONORS them to put them in harms way on a flawed policy with NOTHING to gain.
Even the Democrats who are against the war are tap dancing around and won’t commit to getting out. Out of all of the Republican candidates left, ONLY Ron Paul never voted for the war to begin with!!! Everyone called him unpatriotic as he went against his own party to preserve what was right, and now he looks like the genius he is.
But let’s put the moral and political reasons aside for a moment. We can’t AFFORD the war! It is bankrupting our country!
This guy has only written 5 books on this subject and is the most knowledgeable economic-minded Congressman in Washington. NO candidate can hold a candle to him on economic policies and knowledge (which is a major reason why they refuse to debate him on the subject).
Most people don’t even realize how the Federal Reserve System works and how they are transferring wealth from the American people to Wall Street and the wealthiest Americans through “interest rate cuts”. Fractional Reserve Banking is destroying the entire world and it started with the Bank of England.
Fractional Reserve Banking means that a bank only needs 1 dollar on hand (in reserve) for every 10 dollars it loans. Think about this for a second. If you go into a bank for a loan, the bank magically creates the money you borrow and charges you interest on it. The only value they have is the paper you sign promising to pay the money back. You are giving the bank an (IOU). They can then leverage your “promise” to pay back the loan to then loan more mythical money to the next person. They just add the numbers to your bank account but the money isn’t in their vault to lend in the first place!
When you pay the loan back with Interest, they now have even more money to lend (again 10 dollars for every one dollar they have.) So, every loan taken out for cars, or credit cards, or homes, or education increases the money supply in the country because 9 out of every 10 dollars isn’t the bank’s money or anyone else’s money… it is NEW money created the second you borrowed it.
In fact, it isn’t even paper money either, it is just numbers in a database. Only about 5% of the “money” in the U.S. is actual tangible currency. But these loans increase the money supply which causes inflation thereby making every dollar in the world worth less.
But it gets worse, the little tangible currency they DO have in reserve is debt money too because it is money that someone else paid back on their loan. This continues over and over again which makes it IMPOSSIBLE for the currency to be backed by anything of intrinsic value like GOLD. It is debt money backed by debt money. People think that for every dollar in the world, there is the equal value in Gold in a vault somewhere. This is not true. In fact it can’t be true just based on how the system works. You don’t walk into the bank and ask for a loan of $10,000 and they say “hold on a second” while they run out and mine enough gold to cover what they are about to lend you.
Here’s a good example:
If you asked me if you could borrow my lawn mower and you’d pay me $2.00, I’d logically give you my lawn mower and have you sign something saying that you will return it with a payment of $2.00. The lawn mower is the physical asset that I have that you want and since you don’t have one, you’re willing to pay for the ability to use mine right now.
But what if I didn’t have a lawn mower to lend, so instead I just gave you a piece of paper that says “lawn mower” and when you gave the paper back to me, you still had to pay me the $2.00 per our agreement? Sounds silly doesn’t it? What good is a piece of paper to you? But this is what the banks do when they lend you money they DON’T HAVE then ask you to pay interest on it when you pay it back. Meanwhile, inflation goes up each time this happens because there is more money in the economy. It happens so slowly that people barely even realize it until you reach a tipping point like we are hitting right now in our economy. It has taken decades to get here but the Government’s overspending has accelerated it. The FED also caused this because by lowering the Interest Rates they made money easier to borrow. Everyone began borrowing large sums of money (creating the housing bubble) which DRASTICALLY increased the money in our economy. The dollar then crashes and when people can’t pay back their loans we get into a position we are in today.
It is the “perfect storm” of economic disaster. You have a Government spending money like crazy thereby increasing inflation, then you have the FED lowering interest rates which also adds trillions of dollars and increases inflation further. But it would be bad enough if you just had to pay back YOUR loans. Keep in mind that the Government isn’t spending their money. They don’t have any. They are spending YOUR money as a Tax Payer. And when they STILL don’t have enough, they borrow it from the Social Security Trust Fund. And when that is all gone they are borrowing more from China and you, as a Tax Payer, have to pay that back too. This is how the people get completely SCREWED!!!! It is like having someone else run up your credit card without you knowing. Eventually you are going to be stuck with a massive bill.
In fact, this banking system was the primary reason for the Revolutionary War. The Boston Tea Party was a footnote compared to the real issue the colonies were facing.
There was a shortage of material for minting coins in the colonies, so they began to print their own paper money, which they called Colonial Script. This provided a very successful means of exchange and also gave the colonies a sense of identity. The Colonies were flourishing as a result but that isn’t how things were run in Europe.
During a visit to Britain in 1763, The Bank of England asked Benjamin Franklin how he would account for the new found prosperity in the colonies. Franklin replied.
“That is simple. In the colonies we issue our own money. It is called Colonial Script. We issue it in proper proportion to the demands of trade and industry to make the products pass easily from the producers to the consumers.
In this manner, creating for ourselves our own paper money, we control its purchasing power, and we have no interest to pay to no one.“ — Benjamin Franklin
The Bank of England (controlled by the powerful bankers and the Rothchilds) had created currency from debt. They would lend money they don’t have to governments then charge interest for the use of the currency. When they realized that the American Colonies had created their own debt-free currency the Bank of England, the world’s most powerful independent bank, used its influence on the British parliament to press for the passing of the Currency Act of 1764.
This act made it illegal for the colonies to print their own money, and forced them to pay all future taxes to Britain in silver or gold which made the International bankers much wealthier.
“In one year, the conditions were so reversed that the era of prosperity ended, and a depression set in, to such an extent that the streets of the Colonies were filled with unemployed.” — Benjamin Franklin
In his autobiography Franklin revealed:
“The colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been that England took away from the colonies their money, which created unemployment and dissatisfaction. The inability of the colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of George III and the international bankers was the PRIME reason for the Revolutionary War.“ — Benjamin Franklin
But even after America won, it didn’t stop. The Rothchilds were funding the Rockefellers, Morgans (of J.P. Morgan), Lehmans, Vanderbilts, Warburgs, Sterlings, Carnegies, and other major families to create a central bank in the U.S. Three times they tried and failed. Lincoln, Jackson, Jefferson, and Franklin all fought against these powerful men who tried to take control of the government and the U.S. currency.
Then, in 1913 they formulated the perfect plan. They got Woodrow Wilson elected as president and controlled several seats in Congress. The Federal Reserve Act was proposed in 1908 by Nelson Aldrich (whose daughter married Rockefeller’s son). The Act created the “Federal Reserve System” which transferred control of the money supply from Congress to the banking system.
Voting on the Act was scheduled during the strange hours of 1:30 am to 4:30 am on Monday, December 22 1913. There were about 40 substantial differences between the House and Senate versions that were supposedly described, deliberated upon, debated, reconciled, and voted upon in an unprecedented 4 1/2 minutes per item.
At 4.30 am, a prepared report of this Committee was handed to the printers. Senator Bristow of Kansas, the Republican leader, stated on the Congressional Record that the Conference Committee had met without notifying them, and that Republicans were not present and were given no opportunity either to read or sign the Conference Committee report. The Conference report is normally read on the Senate floor. The Republicans did not even see the report. Some senators stated on the floor of the Senate that they had no knowledge of the contents of the Bill.
At 6:02 PM on December 23, when many members had already left the Capital for the Christmas holiday, the very same day that the Bill was hurried through the House and Senate, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 into law.
THIS IS DOCUMENTED FACT and is how the Federal Reserve was fraudulently created.
This time, the writers of the bill removed the word “Bank” and called it the “Federal Reserve” to fool the public into thinking it was a Government entity. This bank has NEVER been completely audited and it is about as “federal” as Federal Express.
The FED began taking more control over the U.S. currency and had received threats in the past to dismantle it. The FED itself has admitted to causing the Great Depression but claims that “they’ve learned their lesson”. They did this by limiting the money supply for an extended period of time. Today, the vast majority of American currency is debt money backed by debt (not gold).
The U.S. Treasury prints bills and sells the sheets at $0.02 to the FED. This is basically the cost of printing. They then wave their magic wand and turn it into money and loan it back to the Government at face value plus interest. We are being charged interest on the use of our own currency!!! The IRS was supposedly created by Congress with the ratification of the 16th amendment but it has been well documented (and confirmed in many courts) that it was never properly ratified and there is no statute anywhere that shows Congress creating the position of “commissioner of Internal Revenue” in 1862. Through deception and influence the Bankers had a major roll in creating the IRS so that the American people can pay the Interest on the government’s debt owed to the FED. It is the biggest slight-of-hand robbery of all time.
The American people have been hoodwinked and have been fooled into thinking that the Federal Reserve Board is controlled by the Government. It isn’t. It is a transfer of wealth from the poor and middle class (who borrow most of this money created out of thin air) to the powerful bankers and Wall Street investors.
Here is a quote from the former head of the Boston Federal Reserve Bank that explains it in its most simple form,
“When you or I write a check there must be sufficient funds in our account to cover the check, but when the Federal Reserve writes a check there is no bank deposit on which that check is drawn. When the Federal Reserve writes a check, it is creating money.”
Even Woodrow Wilson realized what he had done later in life and was quoted:
“A great industrial nation is controlled by it’s system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the world– no longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men.” — President Woodrow Wilson
“The financial system has been turned over to the Federal Reserve Board. That Board administers the finance system by authority of a purely profiteering group. The system is Private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people’s money” – Charles A. Lindbergh Sr., 1923
“From now on, depressions will be scientifically created.” — Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh Sr. , 1913
“We have, in this country, one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board. This evil institution has impoverished the people of the United States and has practically bankrupted our government. It has done this through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.” — Congressman Louis T. McFadden in 1932 (Rep. Pa)
“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes it’s laws.”– Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild (Bank of England)
“Banks lend by creating credit. (ledger-entry credit, monetized debt) They create the means of payment out of nothing.” — Ralph M. Hawtrey, Secretary of the British Treasury
“Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders. The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates outside the control of Congress and manipulates the credit of the United States.” — Sen. Barry Goldwater (Rep. AR)
“History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and it’s issuance.“ — President James Madison
Ron Paul continues to be the solitary voice of reason and is the the only presidential candidate that is brave enough to stand up to these powerful forces.
Ron Paul is the ONLY candidate who has NEVER voted for an unbalanced budget, even when he was voting against everyone else in his party. This is a man based on the principals of the founding fathers, not someone who will change positions with the political tide.
Here is some more food for thought. McCain and Huckabee campaigns are BOTH in debt. They’ve spent more than they have raised. Romney has also spent more than he has raised but has made up the difference with his own personal finances. ONLY RON PAUL has managed his campaign the same way he would manage the country… within budget. Doesn’t this say something that these other candidates are already overspending and they aren’t even elected yet?
Eliminating deficits and the national debt would save us $400 billion per year on interest payments to China and everyone else we’re in debt to. Half of what you pay in income tax every year pays only that interest on borrowed money we’ve already spent!!!
ENDING THE MILITARY EMPIRE
Do we really need 700 bases in 130 countries at a cost of 500 – 700 billion a year? Consider for a moment that the deficit is about $500 billion EACH year. This is above and beyond the $9 TRILLION we already owe.
Yes, we need a strong military and Ron Paul supports that, but we don’t need to be stationed all over the earth. It serves no good purpose, angers militant Islamic extremists and consumes the other half of our income tax (and more).
ELIMINATING THE IRS?
If we eliminated the debt and this overseas expenditure we wouldn’t even need an income tax. It sounds like a radical idea doesn’t it? But this country got along fine for nearly two hundred years without an Income Tax, so why is this so surprising?
The interest expense paid on the National Debt is the third largest expense in the federal budget. Only the Military and Income Redistribution (Department of Health, food stamps, etc.) are higher. Social spending is the LARGEST expense in the federal budget.
WHAT ABOUT SOCIAL SECURITY?
Social Security is not part of the Federal Budget general fund. But don’t let that fool you! Right now there is more money being paid into the Social Security Trust Fund than being paid out to beneficiaries. This is because most baby boomers haven’t retired yet and are still paying in.
BUT.. what is left over is being “borrowed” and used in the general fund. Government agencies using the money from Social Security promise to pay it back (IOUs). So ALL of the money in the Social Security Trust Fund has already been spent as part of the National Debt!!!!! In essence, Social Security is just another tax collection tool for the government.
We’ve been conditioned to think that “well this is just the way it is” but it is this type of control that perpetuates this downward spiral into economic disaster.
Ron Paul wants to eliminate the IRS (which costs 10 billion just to run), but he isn’t an idiot. He knows he can’t step into office and **poof** the IRS is gone. He also realizes that the country NEEDS the IRS if it continues spending the way it does. But his plan is to cut spending thereby slowly phasing out the need for the IRS while also restoring Social Security for those who have already paid into it, and giving young people the option of getting out of it. What better stimulus package is that?
Most people have the false idea that without income tax, there would be no money for the government to run on. Well, it is true the way things are being run now. But the government still would make more than enough money to run effectively and keep our military strong (here at home) if other spending was eliminated and the monetary policy was fixed. There are corporate taxes, constitutional revenues such as taxes on cigarettes, alcohol, tobacco, firearms, tires, tariffs on trade, military hardware sales, and other minor categories.
This is how Ron Paul expects to get rid of the IRS. He wants to cut needless earmarks and pork barrel spending and cut the wasted money of policing the world at the expense of the American tax payers.
He is a constitutionalist who will preserve personal liberties, let Americans keep their money and spend it however they wish.
If you are taxed on productivity, then you are ENCOURAGED not to work harder or strive for anything more than you have now. As our system is now, there is no incentive to strive to make more and be successful. The more you make, the more you are taxed. You are PENALIZED for ambition and this effects all of America.
It means you don’t buy more luxury items, it means you don’t invest back into American businesses. And even if you do somehow break through and work your whole life to leave something for your children, you are taxed AGAIN when you die through the Death (uh, I mean “Estate”) tax. The IRS causes an endless spiral downward for American productivity.
WHY RON PAUL?
Main Stream Media have colluded against Ron because it is in the best interest of their parent companies, many of which are owned by the banking conglomerates. They stand to lose this gravy train they’ve been living on for nearly 100 years.
For some, they just don’t understand what Ron’s policies are. This is a world of 15 second sound bites and few people take the time to research candidates and what they REALLY stand for. And even if they DO research candidates, they don’t really research the ROOT CAUSES of these issues.
Some say these are radical ideas when in fact it is just common sense. It is the American people who need to wake up and realize that this country is in SERIOUS trouble and it has nothing to do with the sub-prime rates or housing market. Lower rates just encourage more debt which transfers more wealth to the bankers. The “bubbles” we are seeing now are just symptoms to the disease. Ron Paul is the ONLY person talking about an actual CURE.
People don’t understand that Social Security, Health Care, Jobs, Gas Prices, and virtually every other social issue all relates to monetary policy. They don’t make that connection and therefore they don’t understand Ron Paul. But it is changing.
Ron Paul has raised more money online than ANY OTHER candidate Democrat or Republican. Every time his supporters have a “money bomb” he has raised over a million dollars. He has created a grass roots ARMY of die hard followers. Some people support him even without Ron really asking for their support but such is the case when you resonate the message of freedom. Ron is the first to say that it isn’t his message at all. It is just the message of the founding fathers; the message of the Constitution.
Recently Ron Paul released a book titled The Revolution: A Manifesto that instantly went to #1 on Amazon and is a bestseller on Barnes & Noble and the New York Times. In fact, the only reason it started to slip from the top spot was that most places completely SOLD OUT. Amazon was telling people that it can’t even be shipped for another 8-10 weeks! Ron Paul went into a Barnes & Noble for a book signing shortly after the release, expecting maybe a few dozen people. Every book sold out before he arrived and there was standing room only as well over 1000 people crowded into the store to thank the man that has served as a beacon of hope in a country controlled by special interests and power-hungry businessmen.
Other Ron Paul Views
He supports no more foreign aid (again, money we don’t have) to Arab tyranny. We continually “support” Israel while stripping them of their national sovereignty and sending arms to all of the countries that want to attack them… go figure. Ron Paul wants to be friends with Israel and encourage democracy but right now Israel can’t do anything without running it by the U.S. first. This isn’t good for any country and certainly not for the American people. Israel is a strong and proud nation and is very capable of running their own country without us pulling their strings.
Ron Paul is against overthrowing elected governments like in Pakistan and installing military dictators, only to then send him our borrowed money. Right now our government supports Saudi Arabia’s oppressive government, and Jordan who is a police state, then we tell the world we are promoting democracy in Iraq. This facade needs to end! The PEOPLE are starting to realize that they’ve been lied to and manipulated by a Main Stream Media whose parent companies accumulate huge profits from the Government corruption.
But rather talking about the REAL issues that face our country, these candidates are squabbling over who said what, who is MORE Republican, making issues about race, or talking in such general wishy-washy terms that it is all just “feel good” rhetoric.
Some people may ask why anyone would vote for a candidate that might not, and probably wont, win?
It is that precise thought process that has destroyed this country. People are voting as if they were electing the prom queen. This is the most important vote you can make and you are either going to be a sheep that are lead by the hand of the media or think for yourself and do everything you can to fix this country. This is a REAL Revolution and if you are going to turn this ship around, you have to make a personal choice to start turning that wheel. Every vote for justice and the Constitution breeds more votes in the future. Every vote tells BOTH the Democrats AND Republicans that we will NOT put up with their actions any longer. You are not alone people. MILLIONS of people are waking up and are behind you.
Obama and Clinton have raised a lot of money but they are wasting it all trashing each other and destroying their party in the process. In fact Clinton is now heavily in debt. By making their party so polarized, it may be a major obstacle in a general election. People praise Hillary for her experience yet she is entrenched in a system that is already broken. She voted FOR the war and has taken millions of dollars from special interests. Why the hell would she suddenly change now? Her (and Bill’s) dirty politics is a sign of things to come.
Obama is a charismatic figure but his policies are based on the structure currently in place, he wont fix the underlying issues. He wants to tax those people who work hard to get ahead in this world and give their money to people who aren’t paying taxes and using up our “free” services. He doesn’t promote free trade or believe in cutting spending and that fact ALONE means that it is mathematically IMPOSSIBLE for him to fix the economy. You can’t just keep saying you want to “CHANGE” America then not provide any plans that will actually fix our problems. “Change” doesn’t always mean Positive Change.
Most people who follow Obama don’t really know what he stands for. They don’t know what his policies REALLY are. They just like “HIM”. I have to admit, I enjoy listening to him speak and start to fall into the same mindless trance until I realize that everything he is saying is backed by NOTHING.
He IS NOT going to get us out of Iraq and he has talked about bombing Iran as well. He is going to continue to spend more money, thereby devaluing our currency even further.
Ron Paul is the only person that isn’t talking in ABSTRACT wishy-washy terms. How many times do we have to listen to these candidates recite their resume of what they’ve done yet refuse to layout a real plan that makes fiscal sense? It is all smoke and mirrors and the American people get caught up in it. They play on your core beliefs to gain your vote, the turn around and say something else the same day. The AMAZING thing is that the Media even says that they do this and no one seems to care!!!
How many times have you seen one of the talking heads on the media say something like “Obama is really going to need to reach out to white middle class if he is going to have a chance to take this swing state in the General Election.”
Over an over again, they prove that they are just pandering to whatever demographic they need to appease to win. They’ll go on about stories of voters they’ve talked to and how they know what its like…. yada yada yada. These are the types of tactics that 5-year olds fall for but every 4 years we see millions of grown adults actually be persuaded with promises of NOTHING!!!
Maybe that is Ron Paul’s biggest fault. He is honest to a FAULT. He absolutely refuses to play the political “game” and kiss up to the media or just say whatever he needs to say to get elected. We teach our children about honesty and reward them for having some amazing character. Yet, here we are… faced with the choice we’ve all been waiting for. No longer do you just have to choose the best of worst. No longer do you have to just support your “party” even when both party’s leading candidates are just as corrupt and just as bad for the economy. For once we have a man of the People; someone of such pristine character and integrity that he didn’t even WANT to run for president. Most of the best and most qualified people in our country rarely ever want the job. But he was FED UP with the direction the country was headed and had wanted to do whatever he could to spread a message of Freedom, Liberty, Sound Money, and Fiscal Responsibility. He thought the campaign would only last a couple months and that there wouldn’t be must support. He thought that the Main Stream Media had already brainwashed too many of the American people. But he was wrong.
And now you have a chance. Hell… you have an OBLIGATION as being an informed and knowledgeable American to spread this message. The tide is turning and the dominoes are falling.
Candidate Double Talk
Some of our candidates talk about the national deficit and spending but they all (Democrat and Republican) can’t seem to balance a simple checkbook. Want proof?
As if the economic “stimulus” package wasn’t bad enough by borrowing billions more from China only to put it back into the hands of the bankers and increase inflation further, the Democrats in the Senate opted to add another 40 billion to the bill. They spend as if there is no limit to the national charge card.
An economy CAN be stimulated by consumer spending but people are NOT going to go out and buy toys, clothes, and cars with an extra $600. They will pay an extra mortgage payment, or pay a little more on a current credit card balance. This does NOTHING but keep the bankers at bay for another month before they lose their house!
But let’s say people actually DID spend it on consumer products. Most of the products are MADE in China, so we are borrowing money from China with interest, only to buy products made in China. Who’s economy are we stimulating here? Meanwhile we just increased the national debt even more just to send out this “stimulus” package thereby increasing inflation and making the money you JUST got worth even less. Isn’t there ANYONE is Washington that has common sense?!!! Oh yeah… 10-time congressman Ron Paul.
By the way, for those Americans who contribute more in taxes and have a greater obligation to pay back this additional debt… yeah, they don’t “qualify” for the stimulus package. And I’m not talking about billionaires… or even millionaires. I’m talking about households that are making only around $90-$100k (which can barely cover rent like in Southern California where I live). And the irony is that those people would be more likely to use the money as discretionary income. Those people would be more likely to STIMULATE THE ECONOMY!!!
We’ve had a Good Economy Right?
I talked to someone today who said that they thought the economy has generally been pretty good over the last 6 years or so. My response was a simple analogy.
Imagine someone giving you a card with a 2 million dollar credit limit. Over 6 years you live off this card. You buy new clothes, take great vacations, and buy presents for your kids. You would look back on those 6 years and say that your life was pretty good wouldn’t you? But what happens when the card is maxed out? Now you owe the 2 million plus interest. You try to get another credit card just to make the payments on the first one, but in doing so you owe more interest and now have even more debt.
This is what our Government and the FED have done to this economy. People think it is the housing crisis but this has nothing to do with it. It is just the RESULT of the failed financial and monetary policy. Eventually, people are going to stop lending America money and we wont be able to print any more because the dollar will be worthless. Then what do you think will happen? Consumer purchases drop further, which forces companies to cut back, which sends unemployment through the roof, which of course causes even less consumer spending. You can’t lower interest rates to “stimulate” the economy because there is no money to borrow anymore. This isn’t a “gloom and doom” scenario. I know you have common sense. Do the math yourself.
But this CAN be fixed if drastic measures are taken immediately.
I don’t worship at the alter of Ron Paul and I don’t even agree with EVERY single thing he says but you need to look at the big picture. Look at the issues that will REALLY effect your life. Imagine never paying social security or federal income tax on your wages, yet still having a strong country and a powerful military here at home protecting our borders. That isn’t weakness, that’s prudent. Now imagine the alternative if things continue the way they are. This should be a NO BRAINER decision for any rational person.
Vote for whoever you want, but make an informed decision. If the issues above make sense and are important to you, then Ron Paul is the only candidate to choose from. A fiscal and social conservative that will FINALLY get this country back on track.
But don’t take my word for it. Go to the Ron Paul site and let him convince you. What do you have to lose? At the very least you are more educated and better informed.

Ron Paul 4 Freedom Lyrics:
Background: This land is my land
It’s freedom baby.. yeah!
Want nothing more than their freedom.
Ok now everybody stand back while we celebrate freedom.
What will you do without freedom?
To Guarentee the personal freedom.
Time to wake up America, open your eyelids
See beyond the bureaucratic cloaks and disguises
They’re posers and liars, always probin’ and spyin’
Quotin the Bibles while they’re hoardin their bribes in.
U.N. resolutions outweighing the Constitution,
obey or else they’re nukin’ you,
get it yet?
And no more YouTube on your internet,
power’s driven from loopholes within the text.
Forget the rest, it’s time for a change.
Dr. Ron Paul’s rewiring brains
to enlighten us to this fight that’s at stake.
You better get your weapons license today,
before the rest of your rights are erased.
and more of our young soldiers’ lives are at stake.
They say “Relax, we’re your leaders, c’mon, we wouldn’t lie to ya!
To be safe let me stick this microchip inside of ya,
spread your feet a little wider, any weed or psilocybin?
You were speeding sir, cavity searches are required.
If you don’t like the State takin’ food off your plate,
say Vote 4 Ron Paul in 2008, and if you don’t want the IRS reposessin’ your place,
then Vote 4 Ron Paul in 2008
We got troops in Afghanistan, troops in Iraq.
Where’s our troops at if we do get attacked?
Troops out in Africa, troops in Korea, where our troops gonna be if they do come over here?
This is a message to all thinking adults,
who don’t believe civilians should be used as catapults.
Don’t take what they talk for a grain of salt.
They’re buyin votes in bulk and putting money in they’re vault.
Most kids know its crap when they shoot the crap,
but it won’t be all that when they institute the draft.
We’ve had a revolution before, have one again, but instead of loadin a gun, we grabbin a pen.
We still want a constitutional government.
The IRS is cruel and unusual punishment.
And who said the Feds could watch you through your sunroof?
Pullin you over and making you yell Uncle…
Sam invades the third world, Iraq, next Iran.
It ain’t complex, man, it’s their next big scam.
League of Nation Building got a map and they throwin darts,
best believe Dr. Paul wants no part.
They say we’ll have to fight’em here tomorrow if we don’t fight’em there today,
but their IEDs can’t hit us from 10,000 miles away, we’re out of weapon range,
just ask any kid in second grade, and tell him it’ll be his generation’s deficit to pay.
Half a billion bucks a day for this war that our nation’s funding.
The Federal Reserve is busy printin paper money.
The billions unaccounted for’s should keeps inflation coming,
tax return money weaker than when it was taken from We…
the People think its funny till we blow our nose with dollar bills
cos we would need a hundred for a water bottle still.
We swallow lots of pills and hope we got the gall to steal,
that’ll would be the only way to pay our monster doctor bills.
But allow me to remind you of a special document,
the prescription for the sickness, time to call the doctor in.
Ron Paul’s got the medicine to set the illness right,
but no pill tonight, and no bills except the Bill of Rights
You want No Child Left Behind, Dr. Paul delivered lives,
and he won’t promote a foreign policy of genocide.
“Forget about our borders, let’s give Iran’s a try!”
These puppets fus but never sayin nothin like pantomimes.
I thought this was America, the Land of the Free markets
unless you get caught without your National ID Cards.
Yeah, we need our Homeland Security and FEMA,
just look how they protected us in Hurricane Katrina…
You gotta know that Dr. No would never send you to Guantanamo
for questioning the Electoral College vote.
He believes the document the Founding Fathers wrote
will be honored from politician to common folk.
He’ll get us out of Iraq, and out of debt, too.
And get rid of the money hungry alphabet soup.
Ask Milton Friedman, only a free man
allow to sow his seeds can ever hope to reap them.
It’s happening now, roll up your sleeves and…
fight cos the revolution isn’t on C-SPAN.
Youth of America, open your wingspan.
Your ForeFathers Fought For Freedom For a reason.
Not to have it taken by the country they Fought For.
Not to fight a long lost war on the wrong shores.
The state should never be conducted by the businesses,
that’s why the lovers of liberty want it limited…
cos it’ll lead to a police state naturally,
but you wouldn’t know it chillin’ at the Cheesecake Factory…
But where’s Big Brother at when cheese ain’t happening?
The same cats that let your cash debase rapidly?
The same folks that brought you the war and secret prisons,
are these the guys that you want educating your children?
Liberty or death, accept no substitutions,
come and join the Ron Paul Revolution.
