End is nigh; bet you a buck

by Dave Kraft

You simply must see U.S. Rep. Ron Paul's farewell address to the people, a farewell from the high priest of freedom and liberty, and tyranny's most feared enemy. It is incomprehensible to me how Paul's message was suppressed to the point that we have four more years of pedal-to-metal, straight-lining to the financial cliff.

I once pulled out a $100 Federal Reserve bank note and laid it down on the bar next to a $1 bill. I asked the good ol' boy next to me why one was more valuable than the other. All he could tell me was "because it is.” But my question had a deep impact on the bubba. I thought he was going to blow a head gasket thinking about it. He got visibly angry when it finally hit him that there was no difference except for the picture printed on it. The revelation hit him so hard that he got up and walked away, leaving left his beer half-finished. Bubbas are not known for wasting beer.

But our money was not always nearly worthless.

Once upon a time, the paper note was nothing more than a receipt for the actual money — gold or silver. A $100 bill was redeemable for 100 times the gold of a single note. Now it's redeemable for nothing. That makes it worthless paper.

The hundred is worth more

It takes fewer of them to keep the IRS from throwing you into prison. FRN's have real value - the absence of punishment. It don't get much realer than that. Strong arms, guns, iron bars.

End of the world?

Big deal. These things happen.

Edit: Oh, this thread is about the end of the Fed. Well those things happen too. Twice so far. Three's a charm.

Try it without the bubba's"

"But my question had a deep impact on the bubba."

You're nothing more than him, and you should be able to explain it without making him feel like it. You probably THINK you did, but him walking away shows me you couldn't hide it. IT should have lead into even heavier truths, a real discussion.

You could be so much more if you'd just stop exalting yourself, because in the end it sounds like you don't really even care about the scam, but rather you're just using it to make yourself feel smug and superior.

Thanks for bumping this great letter to the editor

I'm not the author of this letter to the editor.
Next time I suggest you inquire first before judging me.

On a related note #EndTheFed hashtag was trending today on Twitter in several cities.

But you love it don't ya?

"I'm not the author of this letter to the editor."

But you certainly endorse the methodology don't you? What do I need to inquire about? I know you very well. I know you're into insulting people and peddeling this kind of crap, that you think you're some kind of poet when the only thing I hear coming from your mouth is garbage.

"Mark Dice rocks!"

The only thing missing is where he calls "bubba" a Zombie as he walks away. Maybe next time he should throw in some references to Idiocracy? That will win Bubba over aye, calling him and everybody he loves genetic retards while he explains a fiat money scam?

You should be ashamed of yourself after you were taken

to the woodshed by many members here within the last 30 days for your continual atrocious behavior and still have your sickening holier than thou attitude.

And here where the owner tried to clue you in on your whiny post asking for help for all the shit YOU have created here but you didn't get it.

Michael Nystrom Why Do You Allow "25" TROLLS To Give Your Site A Bad Name?

Face it you've been entirely exposed and you made your bed and have to lay in it forever because I dare say you probably are incapable of change. Now go away you are not needed or wanted here.

"Keep is clean" coming from you?

"it is his personal property you are posting on -- keep it clean."

Clean? Have I been vulgar, or am I serving justice on a vulgar man who told me to F off and called me a Romney shill?

"F!@# Team Romney"

Where ya going? I thought you wanted me to bump your article? Are you no longer interested in my bumps? Weren't you just gloating about using me as your instrument, laughing to yourself about how I'm bumping your Bubba article?

It makes you feel smug and superior doesn't it?

"You only posted 2 articles here in all your time here on the Daily Paul."

Like I said, for you, it's ALL about exalting yourself. I love how you went in to mark down my post. ROFL It shows what a petty little man you really are. Oh noes.... LigalizeLiberty thumbed me down... Whatever shall I do?

others are down-voting you as well

-13? What can I say, Anarchists don't like Libertarians.

Thumbs up mean nothing to me.

If you want to live for thumbs up, go ahead, but just understand that in a world this evil, if you were saying anything worth listening to or dangerous to the establishment, you'd get nailed to a cross.

You're no threat. For you, it's all about exalting yourself. It's easy for the establishment to control guys like you because they know what you want; you want to feel like you're more than the people around you, like me, poor me, the lowly guy with only 2 measly posts, and 6 months here at the DP.

No ribbon for me... Want a gold star next to your name? Gold stars are the win baby!
