2 Things I Really Disagree With Ron Paul AboutSubmitted by zooamerica on Wed, 02/13/2013 - 00:09
I didn't watch a single second of the State of the Union address...I wrote this instead.
1. America is not, "broke."
2. Communism is not dead.
I am not playing the devil's advocate here, I'm simply being objective. Please read the article below.
How many times have we heard Ron Paul say, "America flat out broke, we're going bankrupt."
"We're broke, we can't afford it anymore!"
3 minutes, 24 seconds into the video Ron Paul says:
"There will be no other choice but for us to face up to the reality that, we are broke."
Sorry Ron, but I do not agree.
If America was really financially, "broke," then how can we afford all of these new drones and 1.65 billion rounds of ammunition for the Dept. of Homeland Security? Why are the lights still on if we can't pay our bills?
Seriously, just think about the amount of taxes every American pays...half of every dollar you earn goes to the federal or state government, but they're crying poor? Do the math people! Property taxes, income taxes, sales taxes, gasoline taxes, tobacco, etc. combined!!!
Get real. Ever hear of a Black Budget? That's just 1 of AT LEAST 10 different sets of "books," Uncle Sam keeps.
America Is Not Broke! We Are Being Lied To
"Contrary to what the power brokers would have you believe in order that you’ll give up your pension, cut your wages, and settle for the life that people live in a third world country, the globalists want you to believe that you are broke and there is nothing you can do about it.
America is not broke, not even close. The United States of America is awash in wealth, cash, proprietary assets and an unimaginable amount of mineral wealth. What belongs to the people has been transferred, in the greatest theft in world history, from the workers and consumers to the banks and the portfolios of the criminal elite gangsters which control the politicians with insider-trading and outright bribes."
"Americans are lamenting that our budget deficit is approaching $17 trillion dollars. Our national debt and deficit is a drop in the bucket compared to the assets that our government controls.
Far beneath the ground, the federal government owns the rights to mineral and energy leases, from which they receive royalties, rents, and bonus payment, states the Institute for Energy Research, an industry group.
According to their estimates, government states that the assets are worth $128 trillion.
That’s almost eight times the national debt."
CAFR’s the Great Hidden Money Supply
"For over a decade, accountant, Walter Burien, has been trying to raise public consciousness over what he says is a massive conspiracy, totaling trillions of dollars, hidden away in funds maintained at every level of government."

On the 2nd point about communism...
Ron Paul says at 36:20 in the video below
"So, the Really BIG question I think that we have to decide upon is WHICH WAY ARE WE GOING TO GO? We see the end of an era, where's it going to go?
I DO NOT THINK THERE IS GOING TO BE ANOTHER MARXIST COME ALONG TO RESTORE ENTHUSIASM FOR MARXISM.
I DO NOT THINK TOMORROW WE WILL HAVE THE SAME THING AS A HITLER OR MUSSOLINI."
I completely disagree.
The, "end of an era???" Really? What era is Ron talking about ending? That scares the crap out of me...
Ron Paul doesn't think there is going to be another Marxist come along to restore enthusiasm for Marxism......??? Really?
Uh, does Ron Paul know who the president of the United States is?
Did Ron Paul ever pay any attention to what the people of the Occupy Wall Street movement were saying?
Ron Paul has ignored two key, fundamental aspects of the situation we're all in today.
America is not broke, we are being robbed blind...and Obama is a communist at heart. He is not a corporate fascistic dictator.
If Obama was a corporate fascist, the last things he'd be trying to do is eliminating the private healthcare sector of the economy and delivering it into the hands of the state.
The last thing a true corporate fascistic dictator wants is inefficiency, disorder and chaos within his or her own political economy.
The first thing a true communist dictator wants is inefficiency (healthcare, public schools) disorder and chaos within their own political economy in order to become the solution...the, "One," who can save all of us like any true communist dictator always promises.
