Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul on CNBC Futures Now on Yellin, FMOC Meeting + Peter Schiff on Gold - July 29, 2014

Just a point of personal bemusement, but just look how frightened they are at even the mere prospect of seeing a wise grandpa's 'I told ya so'-disapproval-face! He has awesome teleconferencing setup, now; there's no reason for them to only have him on the phone, unless he's calling in from the road, in transit. But, here we are, again:

Ron Paul: The Only Thing Growing Is The Debt!

Dr. Paul, never misses a beat: END the FED, dummy! (Or, go full agorist, and IGNORE the FED!)

Always reminds these fools about the wholly connected nature of the warfare state & fiat monetary system/price-fixing 'money' aka artificially fixing interest rates/inflation/currency controls, and the 'Roman Imperial outposts' as visible tacit reminder to other nations that their status will forever remain 'vassal states' in the eyes of the City of London/Wall St. bankster-hegemon!

Peter Schiff: People Calling For Gold's Demise Don't Understand The Fundamentals

Same old, same old Keynesian denial, the magical "a lot of other people 'think/say' blah blah blah," erroneous definition of inflation & dismissal of the reality-conscious sane realists, as "gold-bugs."

The usual. xD

Peter Schiff VS Ron Paul

Paul says "It is against Austrian economics principles to try to project a $2k-$5k ounce of gold in the coming years..."

Schiff is projecting all the time; they are in conflict on this one point at least.

That Would Be Like Calling Michael Nystrom...

Michael Alowishus Nystrom...It's Micha~ael Nystrom


Michael Nystrom's picture

Why do you call him "Ronald Earnest Paul" ?

I know that's his name and all, but it just looks kind of dumb. Goofy.

C'mon. He's Ron Paul. What more do you need?

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. - Alan Watts

So fully spelling out someone's name is "Dumb"? "Goofy"??

Okie doke.

Mayor Ny, I'm always amused by the little things that bother you ,cD

I happen to like people who live up to the meaning of their name, even if it's a middle one. and if so, why not? just like emphasizing it. nothing more, nothing less.

"What more do you [I] need?" Not much, other than occasional courtesy.

Never get tired of saying, or repeating, nor emphasizing: "Hell, the Man's middle name literally means, 'sincere honesty!'" And indeed, he has undoubtedly lived up to it, everyday.

Even individualists need role-models, and what I'd like to distinguish as a champion, vs a 'hero.'

A hero is driven by a personal ambition, whose quest and action may inspire others to worship, or emulate. But at the heart of a 'Hero's Journey' is not about anyone else but him/herself.

A Champion is driven by a fight for a cause, a cause greater than him/herself, ON BEHALF of OTHERS. He/she too inspires others to emulate, and admire, but not worship. He/she understands their own destiny in larger context. He/she fights for a cause that he/she may not achieve within his/her own life time, but has clearly demonstrated a path for others to follow, explore, or lead and forge their own path derived from the success and failures as demonstrated by the champion.

A Champion is someone who is selfless, a fighter for those who can't and the spark that ignites for those who may.

Like square and rectangle relationship, how a square can be a rectangle, but a rectangle can never be a square, so too is the relationship between a Champion and a hero: a Champion CAN be a hero, but a hero can never be a champion.

A "hero" to me, may or may not be selfless. But he is brave, usually. And the reasons that he may do something maybe genuinely out of the goodness of his heart, or something entirely selfish (not that there's anything wrong with it). That said, the label, is one entirely placed by others, who imagine him to be a vision of what they choose to accept him to represent. It's an almost mild, 'benevolent' form of idolatry. No doubt, a hero is looked up to, but more so, in a celeb/rockstar vs. a fan dynamic.

A "champion," to me on the other hand, is someone who will do what is right, to press forth with, or, on behalf of, a cause that he sincerely believes in, and almost cannot help but to act on it, because it's the right thing to do. He will certainly inspire others. But he acts on it, as an example, not as a directive. Acts, as an emissary of..., to shake up the silent quiet fervor that may have always been with others, but until he stepped up, others weren't necessarily willing TO step up. But once he did, it cost nothing to the remnants to find him, join him, and/or forge their own similar but nevertheless equally inspired individual path of their own volition.

A Hero, is to be worshiped, even if benignly.

A Champion, inspires, even sometimes in spite of his 'shortcomings.'

Everyone's mileage may vary, but that's mine.

Thus: Ernst {original German (which the Doc's family is) etymology}, Ernest, Earnest, forever the man will be, in my book.

Nope: IMHO, while 'individualists' may not 'need' "heroes," but we do have "champions." And, without recognizing their legacy, that's become of one's own, where would the world's freedom trajectory be?

Without people being able to cite what the likes of Mises, Rothbard, Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul have done, and inspired, where would any of 'this thing,' be?

We are all here, because others came before us.

We are all here, because our ancestors survived a reality or realities much harsher, direr, tougher, and often more lethal than our current iPhone-era of comfort, despite all the very much real tyranny we do indeed currently face.

To me, at the end of the day, humans are tribal.

Call it genetic, or genetic memory, or even primal.

But we cannot ignore the innate default human survival instinct to want to seek comfort in familiarity and safety in numbers, as a species on earth who've evolved avoiding and fighting off predators of both feral animal and human-variety who 'represented' those who were/are different (whether real or perceived to be 'real') than 'us.'

Now, there's nothing wrong with recognizing a group of individuals who recognize (a) common trait(s), often referred to...even as a "collect-ive," as long as it's voluntary, like a group, a band, a guild, etc. As long as that said same group does not seek to deem itself better than others therefore are deserved special rights, aka "collect-IVISTS," while admonishing individuals for not doing x, y, z for the arbitrary unicorn "greater good," it's all good.

Too often, I've observed even withIN libertarian circles, people confusing AND conflating "collect-ive" as equal to being "collect-ivist."

Not so.

The former is merely a neutral identifier to describe a group made up of individuals who share common interests, traits, goals, etc. The latter is just a euphemism for a group-supremacist.

To further answer Mike Nystrom's original query: why do I truly fully spell out Doctor Ronald Ernest Paul, aside from the fact that his real name IS Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul?

Me fully spelling out "Ernest" in Dr. Paul's name, is my private celebration, of my private respect for the historical legacy, heritage, and lineage of those who've championed the cause of human freedoms on terra firma.

To celebrate a man who lives up to the very definition of the word "ernst/ernest/earnest," to me, is my own small private selfish celebration of the philosophical journey of the American Founding Fathers (whom, from my AnCap POV, though while not perfectly voluntaryists, if one were truly being historically discerning, one must ask: without their break-away self-determinate secessionist spark that affirmed and simply harnessed the right to claim self-ownership (historically contemporaneously, relatively speaking) at a time when monarchic tyrannies were the norm, where would we all be today??

To me, their philosophical journey continued, and is now embodied in the life's work and living of many who are alive with us today. One, notable of which, to me, is one Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul, the Remnants' Champion.

As such, I shall forever invoke his middle name, proudly. 'Cause, I'm 'selfish' like that.

An eternal optimist, who has no illusions that human freedoms will be achieved overnight. All sagacious men throughout history have shared one common trait: a long view.

We are here, because they were there. And Remnants picked up the pieces, in every epoch. And so, we continue the journey. I only wish I can be as patient, persistent, and consistent as Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul has been, one whose temperament one would bode well to aspire to.

So, here's to the Remnants' Champ, Ron, the Ernest:
