People, There is only one Topic we should be Discussing Today.

If you haven't heard yet, Iran has completely stopped using U.S. dollars for exchange of their oil. There are a couple other posts here already which I recommend reading, but there don't seem to be that many comments. This is HUGE news and should be the topic of all conversations here. I am completely convinced we went into Iraq for the exact same reason, and this is going to have MAJOR consequences. Six months ago I knew nothing about the fact the dollar's survival was based on oil transactions (until I saw a link to an article from the Daily Paul). After being convinced that this was the case, it opened my eyes to all sorts of things going on in the world. It was apparant to me that if Iran did drop the dollar it would be the start of something historic like we have never seen before - Including severe depression, wars, and who the hell knows what else.
If you haven't researched this, then you probably think I'm nuts. If you have, you may agree.

Ron Paul's Constitutional

Ron Paul's Constitutional foreign policy is against us taking this action against Iran and most Americans don't want more war either.

**the soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears**

We are going to be lucky if

We are going to be lucky if our own local merchants keep taking the dollar. What did you expect? It is hardly worth anything anymore throughout the world. We are borrowing and printing to make ends meet. How can this surprise any of you, like it is b i g news?

I will not be able to

I will not be able to convince you how big this is if you have no knowlege of why the dollar still has any value at all.

The idea that this will lead to war is not newsworthy?

explain to us how "talking about this " will get Ron Paul..

elected?? or even create more liberty and freedom in the world? This topic just creates more fear, and offers no solutions, or even inspiration or hope for any type of solutions....

this would be better off in a Alex Jones forum....

isn't that his style....fear....

I'm sorry for making you so

I'm sorry for making you so depressed on this stupid little topic that couldn't mean anything. I'm sure you'll forget about this in the morning.

You must overcome your fear

Where have you been for the last year? Our currency crisis is one of Dr. Paul's rallying cries! If you have some personal beef with AJ, take it up with him directly. He's a patriot and will set you straight. If you can't handle this discussion, go somewhere else.

I wish Ron Paul would inform

I wish Ron Paul would inform the public as to what is really going on and why we will go to war with Iran.

That would be nice, but the

That would be nice, but the morons in society would make him out to be a kook. This is way over most peoples heads and goes against their firm belief in the true "goodness" of our government. Most people will never believe it - it couldn't be true since the media hasn't informed us of this.

With all the economic fiascoes going on, does this mean...

...The "Amero" is upon us?...

I surely hope not!

Oops.."DP"

err I mean double post.

I saw this in today's paper..

..somewhere buried amongst all the Obama / Rev. Wright articles. This should've been front page.

Exactly, They do not want

Exactly, They do not want the general public to know what is going on. Once you figure this out, it leads to a whole new skepticism of our government and how nasty some of their doings are.

Looks like we getting close to WWIII

As is said here earlier, Iraq did the same and it was the red flag for the Bush administration to go in. For Iran following through on their plans to go for the Euros is pulling the plug on the dollar.

Are you all prepared??

I agree. I keep getting a

I agree. I keep getting a little more prepared every day.

A friend of mine

who was an Army Ranger in Vietnam once told me that military operations usually start when there is a new moon. We're coming into one in a couple of days.

Iran is quite different from Iraq

The neocons said Iraq would be a pushover. Iran has a much more formidable military and very powerful allies (Russia and China). To launch a military attack against Iran would be insane. I'm as prepared as I can be, for just about anything except leaving the country. This is the last place on earth for me.

What do you mean

when you say, this is the last place on earth for me. Do you mean you have evaluated every place else and you only want to be here? Or do you mean this is the last place on earth you want to be? So where would you go?

Questions

I thought war was to keep them from doing it. They did it already. Iraq was not allowed the chance to do it, right?

Secondly, The Feds and our gov are all about destroying the dollar, so Iran is now just helping them. So why is it going to make a huge difference.

Although, of course, I do still think we will go to war with Iran--just on principle of making money for the elites. The elites are not vested only in the dollar. Obviously supply of oil here in US is not a problem for the people who run our gov because if it was, we would drill and refine.

So we are taking down our country and middle class and I think we have to keep our soldiers tied up so they won't be available in this country for "any reason." Then all the foreign soldiers who will take instruction from the UN are here to do whatever needs to be done in US.

So where are my thoughts wrong?

Info I have read stated that

Info I have read stated that Iraq had started trading a portion of their oil in non-dollar denominations prior to us invading the country. One of the first things the US did after we invaded the country was to make sure all oil was traded inn dollars.
This scenario is not what the Fed and the government want. The want to control every aspect of the dollar. Iran dumping the dollar will make them lose control.

Are the Iranians still

Are the Iranians still trading on the NY and London exchanges? I thought that these exchanges were strictly dollar oriented.

Are the Iranians now exclusively selling through their own borse?

It sounds to me like they

It sounds to me like they are completely done exchanging oil for dollars. I assume they are having nothing to do with the NY and London exchanges as far as oil is concerned. Anybody know otherwise?

Thanks for the notice.

Besides what we are currently doing on the political front. What necessarily do you suggest we do about the noted issue? Thanks

What you believe to be true, is true to you... "until you change your mind"

To tell you the truth, I

To tell you the truth, I don't know if there is anything we can do. I don't think this is something that's going to stew for a few years. I think there will be some major action taken within weeks or months. The only thing we can probably do is to try to inform as many people as possible about why the U.S. is going to do what they are going to do (and getting them to believe it is no easy task unless they are already somewhat informed and somewhat skeptical about our government). The more informed people, the better.

I believe you are,

I believe you are absolutely correct in your reply, thank you. A thought I pondered was, will this have an impact on the current election??? We gotta spread the word, I know I've been asleep too long myself. I'm awake now and doing what I can... [Communication is key] !
