Why the Establishment fears Ron Paul
In 1913, the United States of America went off of the gold standard and our currency, the dollar was no longer backed by any tangible asset. This is when the confidence game began. Americans are all told, and most firmly believe that we are exceptional in the World. We live in the greatest country in the world. We have the largest economy, the most formidable military, the most superior form of government, the most advanced culture, the most ingenious citizens,and the greatest amount of freedom of any country in the world. We are superior to all other countries in every meaningful measure. American Exceptionalism is taken for granted by Americans- we are simply the best at everything. To deny this or dispute this is unpatriotic and treasonous. We are proud of our accomplishments and proud of our greatness. We have been set up as victims of the confidence game.
From the Wikipedia: Confidence tricks exploit typical human characteristics such as greed, dishonesty, vanity, honesty, compassion, credulity, irresponsibility, desperation and naïveté. As such, there is no consistent profile of a confidence trick victim, the common factor is simply that the victim relies on the good faith of the con artist.
In America, in 1913, the economy was put in the hands of a group of private banks known as the Federal Reserve. Beyond the reach of government, the Federal Reserve operates to build the confidence of Americans and systematically strip us of our wealth. As our confidence in American exceptionalism is expanded through our public schools and news media, the Fed insiders grow wealthier and wealthier.We are victimized primarily by vanity disguised as patriotism.
Our entire economic system is based on this confidence in our superiority and ability to weather any storm. We will always prevail. Consumer confidence is a leading economic indicator, as is the confidence of other sectors such as small business owners and investors. The stock market operates based on the confidence of every day small investors. Any attempt by an American , especially a public figure, to undermine this confidence is a threat to the establishment that profits immensely by the continuation of the confidence game.
When Ron Paul says publicly that the Federal Reserve is cheating us, he must be repressed and marginalized by the establishment, less the message take root and collapse the confidence game house of cards. Thus, we see the systematic cheating and vote fraud against Ron Paul, the consistent marginalization by the media, and the message delivered to the public that Ron Paul is an unelectable, fringe, candidate.
