Ron Paul News – What Americans Are Saying

Ron Paul: The Peoples Champion
Dr. Ron Paul, the Champion of the Constitution & currently the world’s most prominent representative of Liberty talks on CNN American Morning (17th October).

Topics addressed include;
Inflation, Death of the Dollar, End of Monetary System.
– “It’s an immoral system”
– ‘Can’t trust McCain or Obama’
– ‘We’re going to suffer’

He hits it out of the park at the end section..

“Get the government out of the way, quit spending money, balance the budget, bring our troops home. And let the American people keep the money they earn, that means drastically reducing taxes, get the government out this over-regulation, give up on the idea that inflation solves every body’s problems.”

Ron Paul: Bailout Means We’ll All Suffer
They don’t understand the idea that people have to work. People have to save, instead of consumers spending more money.

The market is saying you should back off, spend less money, and save money. Everybody says, no, don’t save money. You’re supposed to go out there and spend money.

The people who have saved in the last five years have money in the bank, and cash is good right now. They’re going to buy up the bargains. They’re going to get a good deal on a house. Prices on houses should come down. We shouldn’t keep them artificially high. We shouldn’t try to stimulate housing. There are too many houses. We should let the market make these decisions.

It’s arrogant for the politicians and the bureaucrats to believe they can plan the economy and sort this all out. We’ve been doing it for all these years, and the monetary system is so confusing and so corrupt, that the sooner we get back to believing in ourselves, believing in freedom, believing in sound money, believing in the Constitution, we’re going to solve these problems.

Ron Paul in 2012?
Ron Paul appeared on CNN’s American Morning on Friday, pushing the same apocalyptic message he served up during the Republican primaries, with one difference. His prediction of doom makes a heck of a lot more sense now than it did then.

I don’t think “global governance” is exactly what Ron Paul has in mind. But my guess is that something along these lines is going to get hashed out later this year or next — and whoever is elected President of the United States is going to play a very large role in determining the contours of the new global regulatory system.

And if doesn’t work? Well then, Ron Paul, or someone like him, will probably get a chance to pursue a different approach.

“Voter Ire Threatens GOP Seats”
Neoconservatism is being rejected across the country, as those who supported the bailout are coming to find. If the Democrats manage to get a landslide majority in Congress this November, it won’t be so much a mandate for their beliefs as it will be a repudiation of false conservatism.

We have a perfect opening here to spread the liberty message. True conservatives like Ron Paul and Peter Schiff have been talking about our economy for years and warning about the tremendous expansion of government being carried out by the neoconservatives.

As Dr. Paul has stated, freedom is popular. Let’s make sure we are out there offering a clear alternative to the false conservatism currently emanating from Washington.

Help Campaign For Liberty Get the Word Out
It is time to hold the politicians accountable!

As you well know, the unconstitutional “bailout” of failed lenders that became law earlier this month has, as Dr. Paul predicted, thrown the economy into even more turmoil.

As Dr. Paul said, the free market did not cause this problem and only the free market can fix it.

But even as I write this, Big Government insiders from both parties are frantically working to design even worse legislation for the next Congress.

This legislation may even be presented in the upcoming lame duck session of Congress to take place after the November elections.

They just don’t get it!

And unless you and I, and tens of thousands of other Liberty-minded Americans act now, they will continue us down the road of socialism. That’s why I am asking for your help right away.

“The Freedom Index: A Congressional Scorecard Based on the U.S. Constitution” rates congressmen based on their adherence to constitutional principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, national sovereignty, and a traditional foreign policy of avoiding foreign entanglements.

Ron Paul (R-Texas) was the only House member to score a perfect 100 percent. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) was the top scorer in the Senate with 90 percent. We encourage readers to examine how their own congressmen voted on each of the 10 key measures as well as overall.

JBS Founder Robert Welch on Fiat Money and Inflation in 1974: Forerunner of Ron Paul?
Most of you are familiar with Ron Paul’s dismissal of the recent aggressive actions of the federal government to fix our nation’s financial crisis as an attempt to fix problems that were caused by creating money out of thin air by creating still more money out of thin air. However, I’m guessing that very few of you are familiar with similar warnings about the danger of allowing the Federal Reserve to create money out of thin air from Robert Welch in the 1960s and 1970s. Here’s an example of Robert Welch’s warnings about fiat money in 1970:

Ron Paul Endorsed: B.J. Lawson, the Hybrid Candidate
Yet Lawson has raised nearly a half-million dollars in campaign contributions, even without major support from the party establishment. Last week, Ron Paul gave him props in an e-mail to his supporters, generating $170,000 in online contributions for Lawson in one day—and in total, $230,000.

Money, charisma and a resonating message: The 34-year-old Lawson is the first GOP candidate to run a viable campaign against Price since Fred Heineman narrowly defeated the Democrat during the Republican Revolution of 1994. (Price reclaimed his seat two years later.)

Maryland Republican candidates receive Ron Paul support
Maryland’s Republican candidates received a boost of support from U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R) of Texas at a rally that attracted more than 250 supporters.

Paul, a former presidential candidate, spoke Oct. 9 at the University of Maryland, College Park, and endorsed Republican congressional candidates Peter James (Dist. 4) of Germantown, Richard Matthews (Dist. 2) of Baltimore, Steve Hudson (Dist. 8) of Silver Spring, Collins Bailey (Dist. 5) of Waldorf and Mike Hargadon (Dist. 7) of Woodstock.

“I’m here to give them support to do everything possible to help them win their campaign,” Paul said.

The event was co-sponsored by the Maryland Students for Liberty, a political group that focuses on promoting libertarian ideals and supporting libertarian candidates.

Ron Paul: Washington’s True Maverick Talks Bailouts, the United States Constitution and Re-Making the US Dollar
Often called the most honest man in Washington, Ron Paul, the unsinkable Congressman from Texas’s fourteenth district, has positioned himself as resident watchdog for the United States Constitution. Ron Paul holds a point of view that, although echoing the wording of our nation’s founding fathers, rings downright alien to the United States government of today.

We are now living in a nation where Federal social and economic programs are our government, where our currency status hinges on the stock market rather than the gold standard and where our current President has taken more liberties with the United States constitution than any other President in our country’s history. Under these circumstances, Ron Paul just doesn’t seem to fit in. Reason being: we’ve grown accustomed to, and quite comfortable with, large Federal government and the act of re-shaping laws for convenience.

How Can We Have Capitalism with No Capital?
It has been long understood that our federal government is going deeper into debt, consistently raising the debt ceiling and demonstrating no fiscal restraint. In recent years, debt ceiling increases have been placed in “must pass” legislation as a means to guarantee that Republicans as well as Democrats would vote for them when Congress was under Republican control.

We also know our nation’s “negative savings rate” reflects the habits of private citizens, showing those habits to be not tremendously different than the habits of the public sector. Yet, the signs of decline are becoming ever more apparent. So apparent, in fact, that it seems unlikely that bailouts or other gimmicks will have even short term success

NEW – Videos from St Paul
When questioned on what form of government was created by America, all but one answered that we are a democracy. This lead to questions about the pledge of allegiance which of course they all new and finally figured out that they are in a Republic and not a Democracy.

When questioned on what is the difference between a Democrat and a Republican, they either didn’t know or would talk about issues. When informed that the main difference is that a Republican supports an advocates a republic form of government and a Democrat supports and advocates a democratic form of government they became somewhat curious.

This lead to trying to get them to understand that individual rights could be voted away in a democracy and that they couldn’t be (at least they’re or not SUPPOSED to be able to) in a republic.

When given the question: Do you find it *interesting* that your entire life, you have lived in a republic and yet for your entire life your Media, government and even your clergy have convinced you that you live in a democracy. At that point, you could almost see them beginning to use parts of their brains that haven’t been accessed in a long time and their eyes beginning to clear.

Sickness Unto Debt
One of the burning questions regarding the recently passed bailout, and the one that almost no one has bothered to answer, is how the government intends to pay for it. Governments have three main methods by which they can raise funds: taxation, printing new money, and debt. As our $10 trillion national debt shows, the federal government has always enjoyed raising money by issuing new debt. Money is gained upfront, while the cost of repaying that debt is pushed onto future generations.

This method is especially favored today, since imposing $700 billion worth of taxes would lead to widespread public dissatisfaction. When the cost of all the recent bailouts plus the cost of all the new lending facilities the Federal Reserve has initiated are added together, we quickly reach a figure in the trillions of dollars. Even with the debt ceiling being raised to $11.3 trillion, the issuance of debt alone cannot begin to cover the cost of all the bailouts in which the government is engaged. Every indication is that the government will use both debt and inflation in its attempt to keep the economy running at full speed.

The Fed is Destroying Your Money RIGHT NOW
Congressman Ron Paul has provided us with two bills that would move things in the right direction.

The “onest Money Act” and the “Free Competition in Currency Act,” would end the Federal Reserve’s monopoly control over what American’s use as money. This would force Federal Reserve Notes to compete with other potential forms of money, such as gold, and thereby constrain their ability to create new dollars.
– by Mike Miller / Liberty Maven

What You Can Do to End the Tyranny of the Federal Reserve
The bailout opposed by so many Americans was nevertheless negotiated by the Federal Reserve with the help of Congress and the Administration. The final bill for the hotly debated rescue of the rich is over 1 trillion dollars including the ear marks and special interests sops that were included. But this is small change compared to the money that is being pumped into the monetary system by the Federal Reserve without any debate or consent. New money is being printed at record rates, insuring that the currency you have in your pocket will buy less and less everyday. As more people wake up to the threat to American’s future posed by the Federal Reserve, interest is being renewed in the Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act (HR2755).

This legislation introduced by Congressman Ron Paul in June, 2007 would kill the Federal Reserve Act and would then phase out the Federal Reserve altogether one year after the bill becomes law. Although legislators have yet to bring Paul’s bill to the floor, mounting interest in the bill in the face of recent Fed actions suggests it will be revived from its current state of languish in the House Committee on Financial Services.

Ten Things the ‘Straight Talker’ Can’t Tell You
Ron Paul is right. He has been the true maverick in this race, not me – and he is a principled one, to boot. In my old age, I have realized my many failings, and I cheerfully admit them to you today. I have called Dr. Paul to apologize, profoundly and personally, for smirking at him, making fun of him, and otherwise ignoring him during the primaries. I should have been his strongest ally. I apologize to all of you for not supporting him. I have assured him that I will welcome his counsel in my administration. And I promise that I will follow it.

He believes the economy has to tank naturally in order to rebound quicker – otherwise the pain will be prolonged. He voted twice against the $US 700-billion dollar bailout plan the majority of Americans oppose.

The Loneliness Of A Ron Paul Supporter
It’s getting lonely out here. With the United States embracing economic socialism from both Republicans and Democrats, the voices for capitalism and free unfettered markets are bouncing around in an echo chamber. Those of us who believe in the America of our founders have faith in only a handful of people to redirect the fear-induced socialist policies back to the freedom of our founding. One such person is Ron Paul, the much media-maligned Republican Congressman and former presidential candidate from Texas.

I say media-maligned in reference to his presidential campaign because in these days of bailouts and increasing central economic planning Ron Paul is a hot media ticket. Lately it seems that every time you turn the television to a national news channel he is there pounding the free market drum. While his words are welcomed they are never acted upon by those who have the power to do so. Paul introduces his own legislation and it gets ignored. Paul discusses that we are doing the exact wrong things in our economy to prolong the agony rather than shorten its duration. He says we didn’t learn from the Great Depression because we are making the same mistakes today.

Congressman Ron Paul is pleased to announce that he will be able to appoint a Congressional page this year.

For more than 175 years, messengers known as pages have served the United States Congress. Currently, approximately 100 young men and women from across the nation serve as pages at any given time. Pages must be high school juniors and at least 16 years of age. Pages are appointed and sponsored by a Representative or Senator for one academic semester of the school year, or a summer session. The right to appoint pages rotates among Members pursuant to criteria set by the respective chamber leadership. Academic standing is one of the most important criteria used in the final selection of pages.

To apply, please call Congressman Paul’s office at 202-225-2831 and ask for Jennifer. Deadline to apply is October 27th.

We’re All Socialists Now
I’ve noticed lately that a lot of people seem to have discovered that Barack Obama is a socialist.

There’s a lot of that going around.

Socialism, I mean.

The only politician that I know of on the national scene who is definitely not a socialist is Texas congressman Ron Paul. And look where that got him. During the presidential primary campaign Paul was treated as a laughingstock by his fellow Republicans for such stances as his call for young people to be permitted to opt out of Social Security.

Paul’s having the last laugh these days. As you can see in this clip, the entire U.S. economy is now socialist thanks to the big corporate bailout, says Dr. Paul.

And then there is the unpleasant fact that every senior citizen in America is what my Aussie friends used to call “a dole bludger,” someone who takes welfare without working.

Paul Added to Louisiana Presidential Ballot
When Louisiana voters go to the polls to chose a president on Nov. 4, they will find a name on the ballot many might not expect – Ron Paul.

Louisiana will be only one of two states where voters will have the opportunity to pull the lever for Paul, a congressman from Texas who ran unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential nomination. Paul built a wide coalition of grass roots support that helped him raise tens of millions of dollars for his campaign.

Paul has been added to the Louisiana ballot on the top of the Louisiana Taxpayers Party ticket with Barry Goldwater, Jr., a former Republican congressman from California and the son of the late Barry Goldwater, the Republican presidential nominee in 1964.

Paul and Goldwater are on the ballot due partly to the efforts of an Alexandria man, Brent Sanders.

Ron Paul, His Republicans Rally, Refuel on Economic Turmoil
Five Maryland Republican congressional candidates rallied with their ideological benefactor, Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, Thursday night, beseeching their incumbent opponents to “vote the will of the people.”

The unending war in Iraq, the economic bailout and the troubled economy prove the congressmen haven’t fulfilled that responsibility, the challengers and their leader said.

“Not only have we continued the Campaign for Liberty, but all of a sudden, it seems that our views have caught on,” Paul said after he ascended the stage to muffled rock music in an auxiliary gym at University of Maryland’s Comcast Center.

Ron Paul – CIGARETTES better than MONEY!!!
Ron Paul in 1983 getting on their ass as usual about destroying our economy, currency and country – why, how and what was going to happen – and that at some point something has to be used that has real value and not this fiat paper money which is now nothing more than the ink and paper that it is printed on, and the only reason it has worked this long is because at one time it *did* have gold backing which created *confidence* which the dollar has been “coasting” on since, but is of course gradually losing it’s momentum originally produced by the gold backing, losing confidence because of the removal of gold backing, which will at some point become *worthless* and that real commodities like gold, silver, CIGARETTES, coffee, herds, cattle, flocks, land, wheat, corn, beans, honey and oil will need to be used for money or as backing for MONEY again!!!

SOME kind of backing and abolish this credit and debt-based currency and economy based on the “flexible currency” introduced when backing was abolished. It must again be based on PROPERTY and not just ink and paper.

Matthews was one of the five candidates Paul endorsed – all of whom share Paul’s beliefs about limited governmental intervention in economy, non-interventionist foreign policy and civil libertarianism.

For all the candidates, the recent bailout of the financial system passed by congress was a major topic of contention.

Remember the Maine system? Real electoral-college reform
As I’ve noted before, I supported Texas Congressman Ron Paul in the Republican presidential primary. He was the sole contender who embraced – or even understood – the philosophy that was mainstream in the GOP during my youth. I call it simply “conservatism,” but these days it’s necessary to call it “paleo” (old) conservatism to distinguish it from the new or “neo” conservatism of McCain and Palin.

But Paul lost out to John McCain. Fair enough. I could have held my nose and voted for McCain as the lesser of two evils. All he had to was open the “big tent” and invite Paul in. But McCain went out of his way to make it clear he didn’t want the votes of paleoconservatives by effectively excluding Paul from the GOP convention. Meanwhile he gave a speaking slot to ultraliberal Joe Lieberman, the Connecticut senator with a voting record to the left of Harry Reid’s.

So I’m taking Ron Paul’s advice and going outside the two-party system this year. Paul proposes that right-wingers vote for either the Libertarian Party or the Constitution Party, and I second that motion.

The Persistent Politician
Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) appeared before a crowd of several hundred cheering, applauding fans last night at the Comcast Center.

As Paul walked up to the podium, he waved his arms for quiet. Silence filled the room. He began his speech and mentioned the suspension of his presidential campaign.

One voice could be heard above his speech and the crowd: “Write-in!”

While Paul’s supporters may not be large in number, they definitely never give up.

Jim Rogers, World Banks Unleashing Inflationary Holocaust
According to Rogers the markets actually hate the government intervention and this is why stock markets are plunging around the world. “they are unleashing an inflationary holocaust. Because they [government] does not know what else to do. They are making mistakes.”

More likely they know exactly what they are doing and will use this crisis to consolidate wealth and power.

You can sense the frustration of Jim Rogers having to speak to so called experts who have no real understanding of the financial markets or economic theory. This is what media consolidation gets us, actors reading scripts for the bankers and corporate 100 who we just bailed out with our own futures.

The Ron Paul Money Machine Bombs a Republican Congressional Candidate
I asked Ron Paul’s political director, Jesse Benton, about the money bomb and why Ron Paul decided to back Lawson. He said:

“The money bomb for B.J. Lawson was a confluence of three factors. First, Dr. Paul has tremendous fundraising appeal and his fans and supporters respond to his requests. His nationwide network is second to none. Secondly, B.J. Lawson is a great candidate, and people recognize that. Finally, Dr. Lawson spent time working with Dr. Paul’s national following and developed name ID with them. Put all three together, and thousands of supporters came together to give a tidal wave of small contributions.”

Will Ron Paul’s extra $250K make the difference in the race? Perhaps. But one thing is clear, a national network of citizens like those connected by Paul can impact a Congressional race outside of the establishment.

Ron Paul Supporters Well-Positioned in Battle for Soul of the GOP
A third, more hopeful – and I daresay realistic – possibility is that out of the financial darkness now besetting America and the world, a better way can be forged. At its best, the Republican Party has been a beacon for fiscal responsibility, a strong, smart military, individual liberty and real, honest-to-goodness free enterprise, not the government subsidized version crippling us today. The Ron Paul Revolution is poised to lead the way.

The fact that Paul supporters are still motivated enough to respond to an essentially meaningless poll even as they organize in precincts, districts and states across the country indicates a movement still on the rise. It’s not the poll results that matter; it’s the confirmation that the energy of the Ron Paul Revolution the poll tapped into is still very much alive and well. 2008 may belong to Obama and the Democrats, but as he faces the transition from candidate to president, Americans will already be wondering about what they can do if Obama’s plans and policies for the United States aren’t successful.

You can bet Paul’s supporters will be ready, willing and able to shape the direction of that debate – so much so that it’s going to surprise a lot of people who haven’t been paying attention.

Thank you, Ron Paul. Iran Resolution Shelved (H. Con. Res 362)
You may remember this speech from June 26, 2008.


A friend of mine sent me this article from Truthout: In Reversal, Democrats Shelve Iran Resolution

The article says, “The game-changer occurred when lawmakers realized that the resolution would lead to a naval blockade and war.” I don’t think they came to that realization on their own. We can all thank Ron Paul for that. He was all over H.Con Res 362 before it was even introduced, as we hear in the above video.

Once again, Dr. Paul was way out ahead of the rest of Congress, and the rest of us, sounding the warning. What more can I say, but what we have all said a thousand times?

Thank you, Ron Paul.

Republicans, Ron Paul Was Your Only Hope
You laughed at him. You made fun of him. You called him extreme, a gadfly, a kook, and many other trite terms of marginalization. His only crime was the truth in stark contrast to every calculated, vacuous platitude uttered by his Republican opponents. Now I can’t help but imagine Ron Paul sitting in his easy chair surrounded by gold and silver bullion smiling knowingly saying, “Who’s laughing now, bitches?!”

No, that isn’t Ron Paul’s style, as we learned from the debate where Paul whispered, “Make, fun buddy”, under his breath in reaction to yet another moronic insult emanating from somewhere between Mitt Romney’s sculpted sideburns. Ron Paul is a man deserving of integrity and respect at work in the sea of extreme buffoonery that is Washington DC.

Paul on the Ballot to Stay
Despite his request otherwise, Ron Paul is on the Montana ballot, which began going out to voters Monday, and those responsible for getting him there continue to campaign for the Texas congressman.

Paul, a Republican whose libertarian platform resonated well in Montana, was placed on the Montana ballot by the state’s Constitution Party. That went counter to the national Constitution Party’s nomination of Chuck Baldwin and Paul’s withdrawal from the presidential campaign.

Paul wrote Secretary of State Brad Johnson, asking to be removed from the ballot, but it was too late.

“There was nothing in Montana law that would allow him to be taken off the ballot, unfortunately,” Bowen Greenwood, Johnson’s spokesman, said Wednesday.

Unfortunate, he said, “Because the man asked us not to be on the ballot. Brad hates to not be able to honor that request for him, but the law is the law.”

I watched it two nights ago and was deeply disturbed by its message. At first, I thought it would be best to just let it play itself out in expectation that most viewers would cross it off as whacky.

Financial rescue legislation: Is the Constitution irrelevant?
“That in itself was unconstitutional but it’s been done before and it will be done again,” Rep. Ron Paul said of the Senate-initiated tax changes.

But that is not the extent of the constitutional questions about the Rescue Act.

“It’s amazing, you take a very bad bill, appropriating $700 billion, you can’t get enough votes to pass it so you take it back out, you make it much worse and take it up to over $800 billion,” Paul added.

“Today is an even sadder day than on Monday,” Paul said. “Here today when the special interests got their two cents in, or their $10 million worth of lobbying in, the members switched their vote. Fifty-seven switches, many of them conservatives.”

Profits are capitalized. Losses are socialized.”

Discussion Thread: What if…?
By the time that Iowa and New Hampshire went to the polls in January of this last year, the market were already almost 10% off of its highs from the summer before. However, it took another 9 months for the crisis to become so acute that voters began to really focus in on what was happening and why.

We have seen that Dr. Paul and other Austrian economic thinkers have been in high demand for analysis and explanations of what is happening. All of which leads me to wonder what might have been had this crisis come to fruition a year sooner as far as Dr. Paul’s campaign and the relative attention that it received. I know that many people wish they could have another chance to support and vote for Dr. Paul because I talk to them everyday.

Do you think that Dr. Paul could have won the Republican nomination under the current conditions? Please use the comments section to offer your opinions, predictions and ideas about this hypothetical as well as where you believe this movement and this message will go given the economic crisis and the accuracy with which we predicted it.

And They Said RON PAUL Was Crazy
Whether you realize it or not, if you opposed — and still oppose — the monstrously immoral federal bailout bill passed and signed into law last week, you have cast your lot with Ron Paul.

For years, Rep. Paul, the only advocate and student of Austrian economics in Congress, has been warning of this very collapse of the economy at the hands of central bankers at the Federal Reserve and their arbitrary manipulation of the money supply, along with their willing accomplices in Congress. In fact, had this current calamity occurred only eight months earlier, we’d probably be watching Ron Paul debate Mr. Trotsky right now instead of Comrade McCain.

Fear Based Voting – A Nation in Turmoil
Many citizens never knew about the Ron Paul movement and the young people, Democrat, Republican and Independent, freedom lovers all, it brought into the political process. Excited voters who cared about the issues, the Constitution, and making our country a better place, now jaded toward the political system and that is a shame.

Corporate media chose to air, only clips which showed the outer edges of the movement. They never showed rallies filled with main stream Americans, moms and dads, teens and seniors all together in unity. Ron Paul supporters of every race, creed, political leaning, and financial means were never acknowledged. The idea of a united America was frightening to them. What would they do if we all got together and actually found out that we have much in common? Americans united for liberty scare the hell out of the Status Quo and so it had to be destroyed by ridicule and neglect.

Someday, Americans are going to be very angry when they realize what might have been and what caused it not to be.

Prepare for the Worst – The Financial Mess
I believe that sums up the current situation pretty well. I’ve recently come to the conclusion that I am not prepared at all for the worst case scenario — The Collapse of Paper Currency

“The greatest threat facing America today is the disastrous fiscal policies of our own government, marked by shameless deficit spending and Federal Reserve currency devaluation. It is this one-two punch-Congress spending more than it can tax or borrow, and the Fed printing money to make up the difference- that threatens to impoverish us by further destroying the value of our dollars.” – Ron Paul

Well said Ron. This recent bailout ushers in a whole new era – an era of fiscal recklessness that is beyond comprehension. We and when I say “we” I am referring to our “elected” officials have decided that businesses no longer need to be held accountable for their actions – CEO’s can now drive Corporations into the ground and get rewarded for it, with Millions!

Ron Paul’s Plan To Kill the Fed!
If Dr. Paul is successful this would kill the Federal Reserve Act and would then phase out the Federal Reserve one year after the bill becomes law. The Federal Reserve Act, passed by Congress in 1913, laid the foundation for the creation of a privately owned and controlled central bank and gave private bankers the power to control the nation’s money supply.

Now is the time for Americans to fan the flames. Call your congressman. Beg them to support Paul’s bill, which would abolish the Fed. Then, we all need to rally around Dr. Paul and pray our butts off to keep him safe. There can be no end to these manufactured financial crises until the government gets rid of the Fed and replaces it with honest, debt-free money.

Madame Speaker, only in Washington could a bill demonstrably worse than its predecessor be brought back for another vote and actually expect to gain votes.

Populists Back Ron Paul’s Plan To Kill the Fed
The trillion-dollar Wall Street bailout plan negotiated by the White House and Congress has reinvigorated the debate about Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul’s Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act (HR 2755), which was introduced into Congress in June 2007.

In the halls of Congress, legislators have yet to bring Paul’s bill to the floor. It is currently languishing in the House Committee on Financial Services.

However, there has been a great deal of discussion about this landmark legislation on the Internet and in the alternative press. Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin has even made abolishing the Fed one of the top planks in his platform.

Paul’s measure, as it is now, would kill the Federal Reserve Act and would then phase out the Federal Reserve one year after the bill becomes law.

Ron Paul Doesn’t Lie
Fortunately, I discovered a politician who sticks to his morals, doesn’t accept bribes from lobbyists, and has made his money through honest work: organic farming and practicing medicine. I don’t even consider him a politician, I would call him a statesman instead. His name is Dr. Ron Paul, who is a Republican congressman.

I’ve had the great pleasure of meeting him and his wife, Carol, and speaking with them on several occasions about raising a family, recipes, gardening and investing. Paul has made his money through righteous means. He is a millionaire, not because he accepted personal gifts from corporations, but because he invested his hard-earned money wisely in commodities: gold, silver and mining resources.

Proposed Bailout Package: Doom’s Day or Doublespeak
“The process of this bailout reminds me of a panic-stricken swimmer thrashing in the water only making his situation worse,” said. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas. Dr. Paul argues the root cause of the current economic crisis is a failed monetary system, and the bailout will only make the situation worse.

“The more money and credit you create out of thin air, the bigger the challenge it will be to the dollar,” Dr. Paul said earlier in the week on Fox News. “What they are doing now is creating a situation where every single person in this country is going to suffer with dollar deprecation. That means the savings of every person.”

While Dr. Paul readily admits his way of addressing the crisis would create a short-term pinch – he believes there could be a “very serious recession for a year” – he is adamant the bailout alternative is worse.

The bailout bill roll call votes were/are the liberty litmus test. In the face of overwhelming opposition many so called “representatives” voted for the bill against their constituent’s wishes. If you believe in true freedom you cannot vote for a candidate that voted for the bailout bill. The test is as simple as that. Be stubborn like John Adams. Quench your liberty thirst like Thomas Jefferson. Lead your fellow patriots like George Washington. Learn economics like Ron Paul. Exercise your right to not vote for the collectivist status quo.

Ron Paul Makes New Prediction
Ron Paul will be joining us at 12 Eastern on Friday to discuss the new house vote. Although details seem to change as quickly as a model at fashion show, I’m looking forward to seeing what his next prediction is about the Rescue Bill.

When he we talked to him last week, he believed there would be a Great Depression. If the House, and again, the timing is murky for Friday, does pass the vote, I want to ask him to predict how long before we see the economy begin to recover, if at all.

If you have questions for the Representative, please leave them in the comments section. I’ll go through them before the show.

Americans on the Bailout: We’re Pissed!
It’s pretty obvious to anyone paying attention a majority of Americans oppose the bailout plan passed last night by the Senate and heading toward the House.

As discussed here and here, many Americans seem to understand the “real” economy — i.e., Main Street — will suffer if the plan fails, but they still oppose it and view it as a bailout for Wall Street “fat cats.”

“I’ve lost my money because of these idiots, now they want me to subsidize their losses too???,”

McCain Urges Bush To Spend $1 Trillion On Bailout — Without Congressional Approval
I’m not making this up. John McCain today urged the Bush Administration — on more than one occasion — to immediately and uniliterally spend $1 trillion buying up home mortgages.

I was watching live when he made the proposal this morning, and it seemed like such a staggeringly insane idea that I assumed he couldn’t be serious. He couldn’t think that Bush should just spend $1 trillion without asking Congress for permission…could he?

But then I saw his economic adviser try to back the idea up, and then I saw McCain make the proposal again during the NBC Nightly newscast. So he’s serious. He really thinks that Bush should just spend $1 trillion without talking to Congress, without seeking approval, without building any sort of consensus — without getting any protections whatsoever for taxpayers.

Update: Here’s video of him making the proposal on three separate occasions Tuesday.

McCain & Obama Vs. Ron Paul on Bailout
Two days after the House rejected the mammoth $700 billion bailout bill, the Senate passed it. Not surprisingly for those who understand the world of realpolitik, Senators John McCain and Barack Obama both voted for it.

On the other hand, Congressman Ron Paul, who unlike McCain and Obama actually predicted the crisis the nation now faces, offered a very different viewpoint when he was interviewed on CNN yesterday, prior to the Senate vote. According to Paul, we have gotten into financial trouble via excessive spending and borrowing, and more spending and borrowing — including the creation of money out of thin air – will inevitably make the economy worse in the long run.

$700 billion is Nothing
Voters are rightly furious at the proposal to spend $700,000,000,000 that the government doesn’t have to bail out Wall Street bankers who created the current economic crisis in the first place. But why then aren’t we concerned about the trillions of dollars the Federal Reserve is pumping into the system? Or the trillions missing from the Pentagon? Or the quadrillion dollar derivatives bubble.

Paul Tells Why He Won’t Vote for McCain-Palin
Paul is now returning the favor by calling for Republican voters to reject McCain in favor of one of the third-party candidates to McCain’s right. When I spoke to him on the phone the other day, Paul told me he is backing Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party. But he also is telling voters to look at Bob Barr of the Libertarian Party, “just so they don’t vote for the establishment.”

As for McCain, Paul said, “The Buchananites and the libertarians have trouble getting along with him. He’s really building his alliance with the Liebermans of the world.”

That would be Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, a Democrat who has a National Taxpayers Union rating of F compared with the straight-A rating of the physician-politician known as “Dr. No” for his habit of voting against spending bills. Lieberman got a prime speaking spot at the convention and was even reported to be McCain’s first choice for the GOP vice presidential nomination.

Ron Paul’s “The Revolution: A manifesto”
Ron Paul, the Texan Libertarian who ran for President on the Republican ticket this year so he could participate in the “phony” televised debates, is also a 70-year-old retired doctor and economist who lived through World War II, Vietnam, the creation of HMOs, Watergate, the Kennedy Assassination, the Cold War, Alan Greenspan and both Gulf Wars. Paul released “The Revolution: A Manifesto” in April. That being said, what makes him and his platform different from all the other well-off old white guys running the government these days to warrant the attention of the average American?

Paul’s political message is simple, yet eloquently and concisely stated in his 167-page book: Follow the Constitution and read about our founding fathers, who predicted many of the situations we find ourselves in. Doing this would solve many of our national woes – monetarily, militarily and domestically. Given the events on Wall Street this week, Paul’s message in the introduction becomes eerily prophetic.

What a great read for Ron Paul supporters
On the Fourth of July 1776, we were at war, or rather this nation had just ended a war, and we were for the first time an independent nation. But what did it mean? What does it mean now? – Independence. This nation was one of England’s colonies for hundreds of years and in that time had grown to become one of England’s most productive colonies.

Though the Magna Carta was in place the rights of the colonists were continually violated. It became necessary to stop England’s abuse of the colonist’s rights so ultimately the Declaration of Independence was drafted. In response the King of England doubled the sales tax to the colonies from 3% to 6%.

Lipstick on a Bailout
This time last week, the biggest bailout in the history of the world seemed to be a fait accompli. Last weekend, the Fed Chairman and the Secretary of the Treasury had harsh words of doom and gloom for Congressional leaders, with the rest of the administration parroting along, and by last Monday it seemed both parties were about to fall in line and vote our Republic away by socializing the banking industry through this bailout. Foolish business behavior was about to be rewarded, and propped up a little longer, the bubble blown a little bigger, and our coming Depression made that much greater, but then something happened on the way to the House floor. Citizens made their voices heard.

What a heroic day! The people rose up against a coalition of every evil group in America: the central bank, Wall Street plutocrats, politicians, banksters, think tanks (including the pseudo-libertarian sort), big media, big academia, and big business, and won. Today we got a taste of what things may look like when the regime is finally toppled, and its theft and killing stopped. The Austrian economists are vindicated again, as is Rothbard’s political analysis, and our pizza party for Mises’s birthday today look on an especially festive air. The bad guys may yet beat us, but how sweet to see the CNBC types running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Now let’s get to work to defend the free market and sound money, and finger the Fed and all who support it as the culprits. Oh, and by the way, congratulations, Ron Paul.

Chuck Norris: Clandestine Conservatives in Hollywood
We’ve got to get back to that form of patriotism – one that is based within the Constitution not congressional corruption, one that elects a man for his character, not his charisma. These are type of citizens and leaders who don’t go deeper into debt to bail out debt. These are the type of citizens and leaders who will say enough is enough. Like Ron Paul, who, after drawing similarities between the $700 billion dollar bailout and the Great Depression, said, “The only thing we learn from history, I am afraid, is that we do not learn from history.”

Norris even mixed martial arts and politics, saying he once told someone if he had one wish, it would be to go to Washington with Paul, line up all of the members of Congress and wait for Paul to point out the corrupt politicians.

“We would walk down the aisle, he points to one and says ‘He’s crooked,’ and I grab him and choke him unconscious,” Norris said. “The ones that are honest stay and focus on getting us back on our feet.”

It was only at the end of Norris’ speech that he said he supported Republicans John McCain and Sarah Palin, because they’d bring Paul and Huckabee into the White House.

New Ron Paul Biography – Ron Paul: A Life of Ideas
Announcing a groundbreaking new book titled Ron Paul: a Life of Ideas. This biography is the result of a year of intense work, written mainly by Libertarians from LewRockwell.com, the Mises institute, NYT Bestseller Christopher Horner and others. The authors worked exceptionally hard to assemble the real story of Ron Paul by doing extensive research and conducting first hand interviews with Ron, wife Carol, family members, old school friends, colleagues, and a few political adversaries.

Every drama-filled chapter has a few revelations that will surprise even die-hard supporters. Given the current threat of financial meltdown, it is interesting to look back at how Dr. Paul has predicted every phase since 1971. The book very clearly shows that on the important issues, he has been able to warn his colleagues with uncanny precision about potential threats to the American people.

President Ron Paul? President Ralph Nader? Americans Split on the Need for a Third Party
Do we need a third party? Americans are evenly split on the question, according to Gallup, with 47 percent saying yes and 47 percent saying no. What I find particularly striking is that in the middle of last year, 58 percent favored a third party and 33 percent thought the two parties were doing the job.

Of course, the problem with such a question is the specifics: How many of that 47 percent are on the Ralph Nader side of the spectrum, and how many on the Ron Paul? If the 47 percent—or even a large number of them—could coalesce, they would be a powerful force. But they are too fractured and diffuse.

Has Our Revolutionary Moment Arrived?
I believe that all libertarians, constitutionalists, Ron Paul Revolutionaries lrc blog(whatever label persons at this moment choose to designate themselves), etc. should focus on one simple undiluted radical message: that of the very illegitimacy of the American state, and the American people’s repudiation of the criminal elites which reign over them in their name. The point should be driven home over and over that the original American Revolution was based on the idea of government by consent, and that today this concept has been twisted and perverted beyond any meaning. This should be done attacking the very legitimacy of the welfare-warfare state — the inter-relationship between its American empire and the Wall Street bailout — with the Fed being the enabler of it all. You, Ron Paul, Tom Woods, and Justin Raimondo have been articulating this theme for the last couple of months. It is time that everyone within the interlocking networks of LRC, Antiwar.com, the Campaign for Liberty, remaining RP MeetUp groups etc. focus on this same crucial elemental point, in basic simple terms that virtually all members of the American public can understand and comprehend: The American state is bankrupt, both morally and financially. The criminal elites who reign over us must be repudiated.

Royal Bank of Scotland to get Billions from Bailout
Jolly right. The Sunday Herald reports today:

THE ROYAL Bank of Scotland is to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of the planned $700 billion bail-out that comes courtesy of the American tax-payer if the US Congress gives the financial rescue package the go-ahead this weekend.

The bank’s share of the bail-out will enable RBS to offload billions of dollars of questionable assets.

As Ron Paul has said, with the US holding the reserve currency of the world, we’ve exported and magnified our economic blunders. It is mind-boggling to attempt to see the magnitude of this deck of cards. Seeing that we are trying to again export dollars as bandaids in this bailout, it is painful to think of the lengths to which our treasury may try to go to make us pay for it.

Call Ron Paul Correct About the Economy
The American financial system is in fact collapsing, and panicked commentators want to know why. For answers they’ve been turning to none other than Ron Paul, who, in one of the unexpected benefits of the meltdown, is now enjoying more airtime and more respect than ever before.

Congressman Paul surely takes no joy in being proven right. But all of us can only wonder how different the economic landscape might be today had America years ago taken Dr. Paul’s advice — weaned the economy from the Federal Reserve system, restored the gold and silver standard of yesteryear, and repealed toxic regulations like the Community Reinvestment Act that have encouraged malinvestment and hampered the operation of the free market.

We need your help to reach these groups to show them that everyday people are interested in all of the candidates, and in true information about them, not merely canned campaign rhetoric.

Ron Paul and Barry Goldwater, Jr. on Louisiana Ballot
That’s right. A third party has emerged in Louisiana and placed Congressman Ron Paul and Barry Goldwater Jr. on the ballot for Nov 4. The group calls itself the Louisiana Taxpayers Party and is headed by Trent Hill a devout ‘Conservatarian’ and Ron Paul supporter and organizer. Having had many conversations with Trent, (though I’ve yet to meet him in person) I can attest to his character, industry, integrity and the love he shares for country and liberty. He is a principled conservative and a guy that generates results.

The Tax Payer’s party has their eye on the next presidential election and they hope that Goldwater will catch the bug, along with the attention of the American public, and enter the presidential race in 2012.
