Plowing through the dribble

The real battle with the media, is the army of nitwits deployed by the MSM on the low level front lines.

How in the world can this lady be on any reputable financial show and ask "where would the gold be stored ?" It is so ignorant no one's even laughing.

Remind me of some lines from the Planet of the Apes...."My god, it's a city of apes".

God bless Ron Paul for plowing through that lady's dribble to speak some truth and shed more light on hopefully waking up public.

"This isn't what the govern meant"

"Win the crowd and you will win your freedom"



Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Could this woman be any more ignorant?

Great comments by Dr. Paul. He was trying so hard not to laugh at this interviewers idiotic statements.

Thanks for posting. How can Americans not want this man for President?

How can this be 'practically' be implemented.,,

These MSM hacks need to go almost as bad as Bernanke

sorry,no gold standard for

sorry,no gold standard for you, all this is just Republicans talking bullshiat (except Ron Paul, of course) before the election, empty promises, no action. Remember "Change 2008"?

There will be no change in better, the banksters and the military industrial complex will run the show as usual.

yep sounds like hope and

yep sounds like hope and change to me...

Another Lesson , Great segment

How many that watch the Wall ST shows do you think he's turned. Or are they still FED worshippers?

I'm tellin' ya! That man is

I'm tellin' ya! That man is still in it and wants it!

Thanks for that!

He sounds good. I thought I heard what sounded like a gym in the background--I'd like to think that he is getting some exercise--more than me today!

Just basic commentary on the gold standard and competing currencies but very well spoken--a little bit of agreement that the GOP is looking into gold to appease his movement, but how it is also politically popular to look into monetary policy now.

What a joke. What is WRONG WITH THIS GUY

the commentator trailed off with "WE'll be watching you next week at the convention for your push for the gold standard"

That's how they play it. He is simply a guld standard bug pusher, NOT a candidate for PRESIDENT

JOKE JOKE JOKE. This whole damn thing is a JOKE.


Didn't you know ?

I thought anybody who would be watching the Closing Bell would be aware of that. Dr Paul never toots his own horn. Thats why we love him. I think the point that he made that a lot of people are now calling for some attention to the monetary system implies that they learned about this issue during his campaign.
But let me spell it out for you Mr "attackapathy"...DON'T ATTACT DR PAUL ! Or I'll attack you.. GOT IT !!

Good Reply Tbuck.

A lot of Ron Paul supporters feel this way, right now.


So much truth. I wish these

So much truth.

I wish these journalists would just sit down and read a good book on sound money. It'd allow them to get into some much more interesting questions... "Where would all the gold be held?"... please...

in a building.... with a large safe... would have been a great answer.... like say Fort Knox

Where Would All The GOLD/Silver Be Held?

Where was it held from 1792 to 1933? In peoples cookie jars, pockets, under mattresses, and in cash registers all across the nation and world, but mostly in never ending circulation between producers and buyers of products.

Don't you get it?

The banksters are ruining the once most prosperous nation on earth by gradually taking complete control of the worlds monetary systems ! And guess what, the Chinese realize this and are accumulating Gold at a rapid pace because their afraid the U.S. dollar is going to implode at some point in time.

By the way, anybody that has been accumulating physical Gold/Silver for the last 12 years worldwide, has much more current buying power than those that have been hoodwinked by media and big bankers into investing in paper assets.


She thinks she is so smart then

asks such a stupid question. A least it gave me a laugh.

whoa! No "will you endorse Romney?"

and loved the line
"We will be watching for you next week at the Convention"

either no-one gave her the memo...


Of course he'll be there. He hasn't been banned. He just hasn't been asked to speak.

Maybe it's just me

But I thought that was a REALLY good segment. He nailed it.

Anchor: "Wouldn't a gold standard take away flexibility for the Fed to manage the money supply?"

RP: "Um, duh?"


Anchor: "Wouldn't a gold standard take away flexibility for the Fed to manage the money supply?"

Me: "Hell, I hope so!"

Watching now on direct TV channel 355

Thanks for the heads up. Love how cheerful he sounds!

Anyone know what channel for DISH?

Anyone know what channel for DISH?

I am watching

I am actually taking time off work to watch this...how unlike me. It feels like Ron Paul has been completely out of the spotlight for too long.

uhmmm...wasn't it said last night at the Delegate Conference

When dealing with the press
as opposed to the one they are actually asking?

This is one piece of advice I hope Ron Paul takes from his campaign.

This is a Bait&Switch tactic

I can see it now. Now that you will not be REPRESENTED at the RNC, will you endorse Mitt Romney?

Ron Paul's Speech

"HI Joe Thanks for having me on today. I know I was scheduled to dicuss the gold standard, but such shocking events have occured at the Tampa convention I have to discuss it. You see the Romney Group is cheating, they have illegally voted my duly elected Maine delegates out of the convention. They cheated and rigged the vote this entire campaign even breaking my supporters bones and beating them. I didn't speak out because I thought and hoped that somehow we would be given a fair shake. But they have now cheated at a level thats so dispicable so diabolical I can only declare that the ENTIRE AMERICAN ELECTION SYSTEM is a UTTER FRAUD
