The people in the audience looked either disinterested..or

just plain lost and out to lunch..For me it was pure genius, but at the same time simple to understand..

Cut spending drastically, cut or eliminate taxes allow competing currencies to circulate, end the no win unconstitutional foreign wars, bring our troops home

..Essentially, legalize the constitution and elect people who will take their oath of office seriously.

There is no doubt, Ron Paul was meant to be here at this time in history. He will inspire the people and save the republic..

ACinMA - thank you for posting the speech

Wow, that was powerful

Thanks for getting that link!

not to disappoint...

but CATO seems to take a long time to post their videos. Hopefully I'm wrong, but I've seen it take a couple of months to post the Rand Paul/Cato University video.

I havent either..

Ive been looking around for it since he finished.. Im assuming no one got a chance to record it, because it most likely would have been up on the tube already. We will have to wait until CATO uploads it on their tube.

sent you a msg

can you post the link in your post?

One thing to keep in mind

One thing to keep in mind about Cato (and likewise Reason Mag), is that not everyone involved with those organizations are anti-Ron Paul. Just like the Judge and Stossel are exceptions on Fox, the Koch bro underlings have exceptions as well.

How did that Happen!

The Koch bros. are going to fire someone over having a Rothbardian speak at Cato. That is simply not done anymore.

Then again, the Koch bros. are the most incompetent political players in America, capable of only following on the coattails of others trail blazing as they have no principles of their own other than their own prodigious bottom line.

Caught some of the questions

but missed the speech. Hoping to see a youtube of it when it comes available. Now the speaker is Ben Steil, Director of International Economics, Council on Foreign Relations. Surprisingly this guy actually sounds like he agrees a lot with Ron Paul. Bashes Krugman and Keynes, criticizes quantitative easing by the FED, and is critical of the ECB as well. Very technocratic sounding, but this cameraman needs to show the charts on the screen though :/

"If the world ever begins to doubt the commitment of the German tax payer to support the ECB, there will be a God all-mighy run against the Euro."

He also made 1 comment about Ron Paul "being too optimistic" on 1 point, but I didn't catch it.

Now it's someone named George Malone, going on about what he used to be able to buy with a nickle. He gave props to Ron on one his points. He's critical of the IMF and the SDR too!

I'm gonna watch as much as I can before I gotta crash. I think it's a good idea to see what some of these other people are saying, because it appears many of the listed speakers some to be from globalist think tanks and foundations, yet, there they are talking about the same concerns and criticisms Ron Paul has for loose and unsound monetary policy.

If you want to do something about

taxes...you have to deal with the FED
war...you have to deal with the FED
size of gov't...you have to deal with the FED
debt...you have to deal with the FED
welfare...you have to deal with the FED

pick your poison...you have to deal with the FED

...missed Paul's address, saw

...missed Paul's address, saw some of the question-and-answer segment. Ron Paul is so at ease in these discussions, and handles each question so well, and in depth...Could you imagine any of the other GOP candidates speaking in this room, or fielding questions from the Cato Institute conference attendees? Ron Paul stands head and shoulders above the rest...

Anybody notice who the speakers are?

Ron Paul is the ONLY presidential candidate speaking. This, of course, is because he is the ONLY one running who UNDERSTANDS monetary policy! I think it says A LOT.

Next speaker (prior to the world bank, CFR speakers) is JIM GRANT, Ron's choice for FED chairman.

The times they are a changin!

Sorry about the site freeze

I've noticed it seems to do that every morning around 9:18 for about 12 minutes or so. I'm not sure what is going on, but we'll look into it.

Thanks for posting about the CATO event.
