Barron's Attacks Ron Paul as the "Candidate of Doom and Gloom"

Candidate of Doom and Gloom


Note to voters: Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul's multi-million investment portfolio is a big bet against the U.S. economy.

Say this for him: Ron Paul puts his money where his mouth is. Over the past 16 years, the dollar-doom-and-gloom prophet has invested heavily in gold-mining stocks. It's his hedge against what the Texas Republican congressman and perennial presidential candidate calls "The Great Inflation," which he has long preached is inevitable, given the profligacy of the federal government and the easy monetary policies of the Federal Reserve. Fortunately for Ron Paul and his army of gold-bug disciples, the "stopped clock" investment strategy finally seems to be paying off. Gold and gold futures prices have been hitting record highs.

Everybody Know What A 2 Banger In Investment Jargon Means ?

It means whatever you have invested in has doubled in price. Most investors dream.

Physical Gold has given the prudent investor about a 6.5 Banger, in the last 10 years, with no signs of letting up currently.

Barrons usually touts winning stocks after the fact.
They must get their marching orders from the Fed, to not show Ron Paul as a shrewd saver/investor.


Ron Paul:

Ron Paul: Candidate of Reality and Solutions should be the mantra instead

Now this Barron's story is posted on Yahoo Finance.


Ron Paul is a good investor. Let those Wall-streeters see his holdings. Good!

It seems to me,

those commenting and defending Dr. Paul are more knowledgeable about economics than the author of the article.

Maybe, the author would be more productive and knowledgeable if he did less writing and more reading.

Well Ron has this thing right.

even gold is getting inflated. More demand for gold than houses. Not much love your neigbor as yourself in that.
Investers, (which you have to have excess to be an invester), could be renting unused properties to those in need. Someone lived there before the crash.

ridiculous post. you have to

ridiculous post. You have to have excess to be an invester.... excess is what gives others jobs,starts new business etc. Excess is what banks use to make loans. So tell me, Are you a socialist? You believe that a person who has "excess" should be forced to spread that "excess" around? Why is it that those people in need can not pull their own weight? Yes there are some people in society who must have help. That is a small % of the population. What about those who make dumb decisions in life or are to lazy to put themselves in a position to have "excess"
. I get so tired of this share the wealth baloney.

Even Noah

had his limits, as much as he would have wanted to save everyone it was beyond his capacity. Noah warned the people but what did they do, ridicule him.

It seems to me people are more likely to listen after the SHTF, even then they will probably turn you in for a loaf of bread.

Do you save someone drowning by letting them pull you down or do warn people before they go in the water to take a floating device.

As I heard Mort Crim once say "You can't save stupid people from themselves." Good luck

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

Over-sensitive are we?

I don't see an attack.

You've been ZAMPED!!!!!!!

The candidate of truth and

The candidate of truth and honesty versus candidates of fake euphoria, rosy lies and false hopes.

The real doom and gloom comes from those offering willful ingnorance, deceit and fraud.

I thought...

... the article made him look like a bit of an investment guru, out-performing the S&P 500 by a huge margin. I thought it was great publicity. One full page on Ron Paul. All publicity is good publicity.
