Way to go Dr. Paul!!!

Thank you Sir!

Ron Paul is my President


I'm so proud of my president...

He really hit the nail on the FED head in this speech.

This should be required listening for ALL Americans.

I e-mailed this to many, many people.

Continuing education I call it...

Courtesy of Dr. Paul.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Go Ron. Dugg @ 123

Most courageous man of our time.

He is taking risks of enormous proportion because of his position in government to speak the truth and challenge the elite. This is an era like no other and his voice will be heard and that has to scare the crap out of those in control.


It's a shame

that most of the Reps in there still think he is wacko. Dr. P just needs to keep his message persistent, and his time will come around, and at everyone's economic expense I fear. It may be too late by then, but I hope not.

This was some of the best I have heard from Dr. P, and again very clear and eloquent (yes, i use that word a lot).

I too wonder how many other Reps were actually listening. If there were at least a few...just a few that could form an organized team.

I know my guy Kanjorski the Socialist wasn't listening. He is NEVER getting my vote again, regardless of what tool is running against him next time.

You mean you actually VOTED for that excrement?

Fed Up

To call it the Fed is a fancy werd, this has been going for centuries folks,

Here is the big picture, www.pgorg.com/index.html

Cows think they are free, this is no bull, the beast must be Fed, with pitchfork instead

Ron Paul

He is the rightful successor to the presidency, and from now on I will call President Paul.

Hear Hear! All the rest are imposters!

Dr. Paul is the only one that is the real deal!!

Go President Paul!


Now here's one...

...I can get behind! :)!! Accuracy!


Halleluja! Freedom speaking, sir!

Halleluja! Freedom speaking, sir!

End The Fed!

Ron Paul is awesomeness.

I almost feel bad from the gentleman from Illinois...how do you follow THAT display of awesomeness!!

"You are a den of Vipers.I intend to rout you out and by the Eternal God I will rout you out."

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

Want to stop this now without bloodshed? Smash the Fed!

1. Occupy Federal Reserve offices.
2. Ruin raw materials for currency (paper, ink, etc.)
3. Wreck the printing presses
4. Seize Fed records.
5. Attach the assets; the states can do this now, as the Federal Reserve is a PRIVATE bankiing system.

NOTE to the states: Refuse Federal Reserve Notes; demand all federal funds be paid in gold on silver.

If law enforcement was actually doing its job, these things could all be done LEGALLY. However, as it stands, most of these require the civil disobedience Congressman Paul has been talking about.

Under Pressure

I love that Ron has been attacking the Federal Reserve big time lately. He is really stepping up his game. His book is supposed to come out sometime this year isn't it?

Hope he really sticks it to those sonbitches good

Copy that!!!



Europe is Waking Up Too

This just in from the Central Bank friendly folks over at the Central Bank Publications of the UK."Although people still think that commercial and investment bankers are primarily to blame, according to the latest FT/Harris poll of European public opinion 74% of respondents think central bankers were entirely or largely responsible (with less than 60% blaming regulators or governments).

The Federal Reserve creates

The Federal Reserve creates the painful bubbles by their manipulation of interest rates. We need to let the market work by allowing individual banks to set the interest rates of their choice for their own loans. We also should move away from having a central bank that has a monopoly control over our currency. Our government should allow private companies to create their own currencies that we would voluntarily choose to trade with.

We are in this mess because our government forces all of us to participate in this unsustainable Federal Reserve system. We should have the freedom to choose which currencies we'd like to use and the government shouldn't give special privileges or protections to their sponsored central bank of choice. We need an equal playing field. The Federal Reserve needs some competition... It's long overdue.

Not out of thin air

I really wish this idiom of "out of thin air" would be replaced by something that more accurately conveys the true horror:

Fiat money is backed by the threat of punishment in the following form:

"The government promises the bearer of this note that, upon presentation to the government, his punishment for non-compliance with the tax laws will be proportionately reduced."

Land is a natural right.

If you read nothing else, read this: A Contract Between Americans

How about "pulling it out of their noses"?

"out of thin air" - most can probably relate to, like a magician

And we all know that a magician's tricks are fake.

I have had the same thoughts before, but I think Ron Paul chooses his words intentially for the general public.

What I did like, is that this time Ron Paul started using words like "fraud," which it is.

Ron Paul's Convention Speech

Other good terms used:

Culprit - one accused of or charged with a crime

"price fixing"

"debasing the currency is counterfeiting"

"it robs the people"

"it is an ancient tool of all authoritarians"

"it's deceptive"

"monetary fraud"

I have been waiting for him to finally declare it illegal, since technically it is if it violates the supreme law.

But maybe that day is coming...

Ron Paul's Convention Speech

it is the enemy

"it is the enemy of the working person" was really good too!
