Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk 9/15/14: Will The Swiss Vote to Get Their Gold Back?

Written By Ron Paul
Sunday, September 14, 2014

On November 30th, voters in Switzerland will head to the polls to vote in a referendum on gold. On the ballot is a measure to prohibit the Swiss National Bank (SNB) from further gold sales, to repatriate Swiss-owned gold to Switzerland, and to mandate that gold make up at least 20 percent of the SNB's assets. Arising from popular sentiment similar to movements in the United States, Germany, and the Netherlands, this referendum is an attempt to bring more oversight and accountability to the SNB, Switzerland's central bank.

The Swiss referendum is driven by an undercurrent of dissatisfaction with the conduct not only of Swiss monetary policy, but also of Swiss banking policy. Switzerland may be a small nation, but it is a nation proud of its independence and its history of standing up to tyranny. The famous legend of William Tell embodies the essence of the Swiss national character. But no tyrannical regime in history has bullied Switzerland as much as the United States government has in recent years.

The Swiss tradition of bank secrecy is legendary. The reality, however, is that Swiss bank secrecy is dead. Countries such as the United States have been unwilling to keep government spending in check, but they are running out of ways to fund that spending. Further taxation of their populations is politically difficult, massive issuance of government debt has saturated bond markets, and so the easy target is smaller countries such as Switzerland which have gained the reputation of being “tax havens.” Remember that tax haven is just a term for a country that allows people to keep more of their own money than the US or EU does, and doesn't attempt to plunder either its citizens or its foreign account-holders. But the past several years have seen a concerted attempt by the US and EU to crack down on these smaller countries, using their enormous financial clout to compel them to hand over account details so that they can extract more tax revenue.

Please give your opinions as to why you think the Founding Fathers include the Electoral college .

My guess was that the America was a minority movement, And the founders wanted to give it the best chance of survival. Allowing the more educated in the meaning of freedom the greatest say. Correct me if I am wrong I welcome all ideas thank

A Legal Gold Backed Currency is Now Here

I hope I can articulate this accurately as I hope you can imagine, like Paul Revere, yelling to the American colonists "the British are coming!" I am yelling the Gold and Silver backed Money is here!

In my previous post last year I explained that Utah (and now Oklahoma) legally recognize Gold and Silver U.S. Minted Coins as valid US Legal Tender and Money.

However, for Gold and Silver to be a currency you must use it as money. You can't just stock pile because it stays as an investment only. Until you purchase things with gold, it never becomes a currency. Until now (as far as I am aware) there has not been an easy way to use Gold and Silver as money, for both practical and legal reasons. Over the past 3 years we have set up a legal Association that allows you to pay and get paid in U.S. Minted Gold and Silver dollars.

This will be better than Bit Coin because these U.S. minted Gold and Silver are already Federal, State and Constitutionally recognized legal tender and cannot be taxed as a commodity on each transaction like Bit Coin has to.

There is no fractional reserve banking here. Gold is deposited in your account and you can pay your bills, pay your friends, pay your mortgage in U.S. Gold Money. This is 100% real and total on the level legal and legitimate. It has been available for us to do this since 1985 when we started printing Gold and Silver Money again.

Dotcom, Greenwald, Assange and Snowden target New Zealand

Summary: Glenn Greenwald says he has spent the last few months working on a story that will reveal the role of the Five Eyes network's smallest partner.

By Rob O’Neill | September 14, 2014 -- 07:33 GMT (00:33 PDT)

New Zealand's role in the Five Eyes surveillance alliance has been a sideshow to debates that have erupted in the USA, UK and Europe since former NSA contractor Edwards Snowden began releasing his trove of classified documents.

But that may change tomorrow night NZ time at the Auckland Town Hall.

The Secret to Rand Paul’s Foreign Policy: His Father

If you want a real insight into how Rand Paul truly views the world, check out his dad’s record in Congress during the Cold War.

W. James Antle III

Rand Paul is struggling to demonstrate that a presidential candidate can be skeptical of military adventures while still being tough on foreign enemies when necessary. And so far, all he is getting for his trouble is charges of flip-flopping.

The Four Horsemen

The Four Horsemen

One, two, three, four,
Soldiers marching off to war,
Oblivious of the cost,
Of the on-going holocaust,
Blindly following the hellish lead,
Of each one on his somber steed,
Unthinkingly obeying the lying lips,
Of the four horsemen of the apocalypse.

Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama,
Perpetuating the death and drama,
Speaking of weapons not there,
Creating images of Armageddon to scare,
We're in Iraq! There's no turning Back!
Kill those backward people!
Drop those bombs, my Sheeple!
You'll spread freedom, we promise you this!
So say the four lying horsemen of the apocalypse.

Don't listen to those widow makers,
Those presidential undertakers,
Spread the word far and wide,
Stop this maddening genocide,
Don't believe the lying lips,
Of the four horsemen of Iraq's apocalypse.
