Dr. Paul was asked about this meeting after his speech in Seattle on March 2.
I was in the front row! I recorded his answer...

Ron Paul: The Fed is going to self-destruct anyway.

Ka-Boom!

The Fed: Loaning you blind, since 1913.

The Fed has not seen a loan it cannot make.

Jon Stewart

Jon Stewart just said that Ron Paul was polling best against Obama, but that the establishment don't like it and that they "the daily show" are not suppose to talk about (jokingly of course). He is so awesome!

He's great

Jon Stewart and Saturday Night Live offer the best news coverage on television and they don't even try :)

It's not hard to be the best news on TV

When all the other news shows are doing their best to be the worst.

+1. Right on

"When all the other news shows are doing their best to be the worst."

and at that, totally nailing it, if you ask me.

Indeed.

Proof? (among gazillions) CNN reporter asks Ron Paul, in person, if he'd be willing to just stop speaking his mind with sincerity in regard to other candidates (and their lies)

That's how they conceptualize their journalism jobs, among other techniques they use: e.g., starting off their interviews by telling Ron Paul he is NOT even welcome to be sincere and honest in his views and expression.

In truth, they are Masters in their Arts in Intellectual Garbage.

Because they can, and in all their arrogance to top it off:

for a lot of numb people (that we are trying hard to awaken, with compassion) are STILL in dire need of our help.

... As they are still willing to swallow those presstitutes' journalistic ... dejections.

Sorry, but couldn't find a better word to describe their "journalism product".

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

I've got to see video of

I've got to see video of Bernanke doing his own grocery shopping to believe it. Its just not believable that he is picking out his own milk and butter and a. not clueing in that inflation is more than 2% and b. that he doesn't get mobbed by angry villagers who know inflation is more than 2%.

Yes. LOL

Ben Swann on why gas prices

Ben Swann on why gas prices are so high. If he's right, it's because of the FED!

He really does a great job.

I so wish he was on National media channels.

Dr. Paul

literally teaching Bernanke a lesson.

"Mr. Paul is recognized, your thorn in the flesh" - Bachus

With regard to Paul the Apostle, I think the "thorn in the flesh" remark was an insult whether intended or not.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thorn_in_the_flesh

I agree - Bachus' "thorn in the flesh" remark was an insult.

The chairman should REFRAIN from off-the-cuff comments which to me seemed like an underhanded remark.

There was a TON of education and information going on here.

Worth watching a few times to absorb it all.

When Ron Paul speaks (especially on matters like this which are so misunderstood by most of the country), he says a whole lot and rather quickly.

I think this was one of his finest exchanges ever with the FED.

Bringing out the silver ounce was beautiful.

Bernanke tried to skirt the issue by saying that you CAN spend the coin - BUT HE MEANT IF YOU USE IT AS A 1 DOLLAR COIN (as it says on its face).

What Dr. Paul MEANT though, was to be able to use it for the VALUE OF THE SLIVER CONTENT (at any given moment - as determined by the free market).

So the lie was EXPOSED.

What would Bernanke have said if you asked him about paying your tax bill with silver or gold (based on the market value of the content of the metal - NOT on what the government SAYS the metal is worth? (ie: a Gold Eagle ounce coin says $50.00 and a Silver Eagle coin says $1.00).

The IRS would laugh at you or worse - Arrest you!

Dr. Paul used his time beautifully in this session.

This video should be used in economic classes - at EVERY level.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Indeed

That comment was telling.

This moment will be lost...............

in days. Few Repubs understand monetary policy. You think any of Ayatollah Santorum or Mittens supporters understands it? Are you serious? RP's remaining detractors love to bash him for supporting metals instead of the fed.
In a mere 10 seconds he makes it so clear even a 5 year old can understand it. The only problem is that hardly anyone voting in the primaries will ever see it.
This needs to become an ad now.Right now. Maybe stacked in with some of Obama's bigger campaign promises that he never bothered to keep.

my 5th grader gets it...

there is hope

moth,

Agreed on the five year old.

That's the main point of the presidential campaign exercise. We are winning because the youth is accepting Ron Paul.

The older one is the less likely it is one will reject the beliefs of a lifetime.

This moment isn't so much lost as it is revealing of what the future holds.

We are winning. It simply is going to take younger people, people who already have shown a desire for truth and a willingness to do something about it.

You won't reach them with TV spots, not the older people. They are beyond help; they are the audience for all the talking heads on TV.

I say that as a Baby Boomer. My generation, largely, is hopeless as are those older. It's the younger people among whom the seed now is planted.

That five year old has hope.

It's the statins.

New research out claims statins reduce cognitive abilities and memory. I wonder how many people diagnosed (or misdiagnosed?) with Alzheimer's are taking statins? Just regarding baby boomers, since they are currently the age bracket(my dad and mom included) where statins are prescribed most.

Remember, The Young Men and Women of America Are Being

educated now and will take what they know and spread it around. We are building the future as well as educating the masses on the campaign trail..

Win, lose or draw, Ron Paul is educating the future of america.

Remember, it took many years to bring america to her knees, it will take a few years to reverse course. You can't turn an aircraft carrier around in a few seconds. It takes time and in the same way it will take time to rebuild america.

I just hope we can survive long enough to restore that which was lost..

I'm not so sure about that.

At least, not the under age 18 crowd, anyway. All the kids I see are addicted to Monster and garbage food. I don't see any hope there. So unless you're talking 18-29, I wouldn't count on the generation after them.

emalvini, exactly

There has been much progress in just the last few years and there is the promise of great dividends, some years in the future.

The key question indeed remains is there enough time.

Great...

last line!! RP2012 My President Has Spoken

9/11 was an inside job .....time to get some answers..RP 2012

Police state meets the nanny state.

Yes that's right the PARENTS of children who have been absent or even tardy beyond public school limits can face jail time, sometimes up to six months.

Oh boy..

Well that doesn't make a lick of sense. Who's going to make sure the kids attend school if their parents are in jail? Oh, I think I just answered my own question..
