The five words that annoy me the most!

These issues are of vital importance, but oh no, the gentleman's 5 whole minutes "have expired."

The noose is tightening

Bernanke must just cringe every time he is owned and totally schooled by Ron. Just knowing no matter what he says that Ron will expose the bullshit is worth the price of admission.

Knowledge is power

and wisdom will prevail. Ron is by so far the most intelligent person in government that he can no longer be ignored.

Thanks Dr Paul!

One of the best questionings I've seen of Bernanke. I agree

with silentboom below - Dr. Paul explained that as clearly as could be. In answering the question, Bernanke sounded a little confused. He's probably in actuality much more than a little confused. Sometimes his voice trembles, when he's lying.

Why is it

sooo hard for most people to understand this. I am as average as they come an Dr Paul turned my light bulb on in no time. I have shown people his stuff many times over and their eyes glaze over. Of course there are the ones that think the smart ones are the ones like Bernanke that make no sense. Many people assume if you can't make sense of what someone says they are super smart.
Sigh.....

If you can't

dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit.

Duh!

Big Ben, come one now, a two year old can see through your smoke and mirror explanation. Everything he described regarding how/why they set interest rates sounds like price fixin', smells like price fixin', tastes like price fixin', guess what????,,, DUHHHHH, it is! Don't worry, only about 0.05 percent of the population truly understands it anyway.

It might be the last chance to get a full audit. Dodd rammed through his bill without Dr. Paul's audit.

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

Handling the heat.

I love it when Ron Paul speaks to Bernanke. It's like watching the predator hunt prey. It must be tough for Bernanke cause every lie that he says, he has to make up another lie to cover that up. Now if he would have just told the truth. He wouldn't have to keep making up lies.

He really shut him down good on this one. That's what you call "Holding his feet to the fire".

And yet, in our corrupt world, he still gets reappointed Anyways

Sigh...

Milton who?

Bernanke isn't going to invoke any favors from Austrians by pulling Friedman out of his ass. As far as Austrians are concerned, Freshwater and Saltwater economists are just different branches of the same Keynesian Theory. Just like Republicans and Democrats are just different branches of the same Big Government Party.

Maybe the Federal Reserve shouldn't manipulate NEITHER the quantity nor the price. You can't use the argument that if manipulating the supply of money is justified, then so is manipulating the price. It's the other way around. You can not justify manipulating, or controlling the price of money (or any commodity), in a free market economy, so you can not justify running the printing presses to increase the supply.

Thank you Dr. Paul for pointing out that "fixing" the price of money is no different than fixing the price of corn or wheat, in a free market economy. It doesn't matter how well intentioned the motives are.

LOL, Bernanke invoked the "whole

spectrum" of economists (the ones who favored Fed controls, including Friedman.)

Ron Paul has given me an enjoyable reason to get involved in politics.
