I wrote Cavuto every day last

I wrote Cavuto every day last week with articles and links on the Petrodollar and Dollar Hegemony. Honestly, I think he gets it, but he can only stray so far from his handlers' message lest he meet the same fate as The Judge.

"In reality, the Constitution itself is incapable of achieving what we would like in limiting government power, no matter how well written."

~ Ron Paul, End the Fed

This is what our empire has gotten away with since 1973

When other countries use other means besides the petrodollar, it invites even more countries to more so use other means. When other countries stop hoarding dollars for future energy purchases, any manipulations in dollar volume are felt more readily than so if instead large volumes are held in reserve.

The Empire protects the generational sovereignty of some of the most human rights violating monachies in the world because it is, by agreement, those monachies refuse to sell oil for anything other than the proprietarily issued fiat Federal Reserve Dollar.

We will not see forced regime change in Bahrain but we did see forced regime change in countries which sold oil for something other than petrodollars such as Iraq and Libya while, all excuses aside, that is the true reason for a war with Iran - to prevent their economy from flooding the market with oil sold for anything other than dollars.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead

standard fare

i don't buy cavuto's statement that what RP is saying is too complex..

i really dont think you need a phd in economics to understand what's happening. it's quite basic arithmetic and if you can read and get informed, know how to add / subtract and don't have illogical beliefs that "everything's going to be alright" you can see things clear as the day.

i guess people are either REALLY dumb, comatose, prefer things this way (because they're on the receiving end of the handouts) or some combination of these...

Ron Paul 2012

The problem is the sheeple do not understand one word of this

I didn't really understand it when I was younger. I understood part of it, but not all. I was a Libertarian, so I was aware of Nixon and what he did.

It's hard for most people to focus on this. Most people these days are struggling just to pay their bills and buy a bigger TV.

Obama is giving them food stamps and extended unemployment payments, so they are good with it.

You're so smart...

You're going to leave me in the wake....

Well, c'mon Neil and get a Jet Ski, let's ride these waves of freedom!

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Piers Morgan interviewing

Piers Morgan interviewing Bachmann right now and he was grilling her on the issues of gay marriage and homosexuality and you can see from Bachmann's face that she wasn't liking where the conversation was heading and tried to evade the questions by talking about something else...LOL!

Anyway, she said that she's not supporting any candidate right now. I'm sure she wanted to support Santorum but she's obviously waiting it out until someone is the clear winner.

Backdoor gold or silver alternative currency.

I just realized that indexing capital gain/loss taxes to gold or silver would remove the impediments to using one of them as a defacto alternative currency. And that it might be possible to sneak this through congress.

More here.

"Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job."

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.


Is correct Ron is the smartest. When it comes to economics and how everything interacts based upon the economics of the dollar and the Feds destruction of its value. The people at the fed should be locked up if you really stop and think about it. Destroying the value of our money steals from everyone since the dollar is half of every transaction. It is a very sneaky way to steal from the people. Thank god Ron has woken us up to this. He is truly on the people's side.


I'm not necessarily afraid that our dollar is going to collapse and be worth nothing. I'm afraid that other countries will reject the US dollar.

If they accept Gold instead wouldn't that be okay ?

I gather you're concerned about the Dollar losing Reserve Currency status. Well, yes, that would be a problem particularly when one looks at the deficit in the Balance of Trade. America is the only country that is a net consumer year-on-year since 1980. For the rest of the planet to suddenly lose confidence on the Dollar would have a dramatic effect. To quote RP "You ain't seen nothing yet !"

The structure of the economy would have to change, this without a doubt. The American economy needs to produce more goods for local consumption, rather that lazily printing Dollars to exchange with foreigners these consumption-goods.

Secondly, all the absolute nonsensical talk about "post-Industrial economy based on service sectors" can finally be flushed down the toilet. The country needs to move back to heavy industries to some degree. This'll create huge number of jobs as it's very labor and capital intensive. The computer industry by contrast is very anemic still.

So, I would say yes in the short term, there could be a problem if the Dollar's devaluation isn't handled smoothly. On the other hand, losing reserve currency status would be beneficial in the long term as some bad habits could be more easily dispensed with, and be replaced by sacrifice and discipline.

I wouldn't be too worried about it. I'd be more concerned about invading other countries, pissing them off and awaiting blow-back. Oh, and that's another thing, losing Reserve Currency status will make it alot harder to start illegal wars.


He said an ounce of silver used to buy four gallons, and now it buys eleven gallons...He said the same thing when he spoke in Vancouver the other day...I think he meant the opposite...since I heard him say it twice, I thought I'd point it out...I'm sure he's just tired!! (of repeating himself, among other things.)


No, he got it right

He did not confuse them. The fact that an ounce of silver used to buy four gals and now buys 11 supports the claim that the actual price of gas is going down if silver is the measure, but since the fed is devaluing the dollar so fast, the price still looks like it is going UP in terms of dollars, i.e. it takes more of them to buy the same amount of gas because they are worth less. If the dollar were tied to silver we would see the price of gas coming down in dollars as well.

Back in the 70s my grandfather used to talk about this all the time around the dinner table. I didn't really understand it back then, but I think I'm starting to get it now.

He's correct.

Silver is around $35/oz. now, roughly. A 1oz. silver coin selling for about $40. Gas in my area is about $3.70/gal. 40/3.7=10.81. Even if you use the spot price of $35/oz. it still 9.45 gal/oz.

That's not backwards. Silver

That's not backwards. Silver has increased in value, while the dollar has fallen. If we had money backed by gold or silver, the price of gas would be dropping, not rising.

I think, but I'm not sure,

I think, but I'm not sure, that he meant that an ounce of gold is worth around maybe $40. $40/ 11 is about $3.60 which is the price of a gallon of gas in some places. A couple years ago an ounce of silver was about probably about $15.

An ounce of silver was $5...

10 years ago!

10 years ago, 87 octane unleaded gasoline was about $1.35/gallon.

$5/$1.35 = 3.7 gallons per ounce of silver in 2002.

Today, silver closed at $33.91/ounce.

The average cost of gas in the United States today is $3.718/gallon.
Source: http://gasbuddy.com/

$33.91/$3.718 = 9.12 gallons per ounce of silver, today.

So, he may not have adjusted the calculations recently. The price of gas has been soaring. If you're buying gas in Wyoming, an ounce of silver can buy 10.7 gallons. :)

I stand corrected

thanks...I guess I'm the one who's exhausted!


Checks and Balances.

Personally I’m glad Putin was re-elected. http://bit.ly/AgMKri

That was excellent.

Every American should have to listen to that. It explained so much in a short time and in a relatable way the masses could understand. I know because it was not that long ago I was one in the masses...lol.

On a side note, someone I know was just in NY and saw Greg Gutfeld from FOX (I don't know who he is, I think he said he was on the 5) and he asked Gutfeld why he does not do more on Ron Paul. Gutfeld appartenly laughed and replied that he "just hosts the shows and has no say in the policy". No surprise there...just thought I would share.

TruthBomb! He makes me regret

TruthBomb! He makes me regret my ignorance. As I'm sure that's true for most of you. Now we are forced to educate ourselves beyond him. It's daunting.

how Cavuto said "you're so smart".


Ron was just getting warmed up too... lol

Do you see any other

Do you see any other candidates giving concrete evidence and talking on Fox Business about the economy and how to fix it lol? NO. Ron Paul is the only one, economist, dr, constitutionalist. I mean what else does this man NEED??!!

Superman for President in 2012!

You Left Out...

The fact that Dr. Ron Paul is the only individual seeking the presidency that has served in our armed forces.

Thank you

supreme danger of unsound money. Show this to your pigheaded in-law, relative, buddy, warvangelist, neoconservative acquaintance. Paul's argument is irrefutable and everybody including those in the foregoing list is experiencing growing evidenceday-by-day that he is right.
