Virtuoso Performance by Paul

He did great in this interview. He had a lot of fresh things to say, namely that just because someone is popular doesn't mean they are doing the right thing. The 71% Gallup poll is alarming but I guess it just shows the level of economic ignorance out there.

"Personality dosnt change things, economic policy has..."

Did you catch Ron Pauls phraseology? "personality dosn't change things, economic policy has to change."
Great point. Obama is there not only as the puppet but as the personality. Those that own the msm are literally replacing the old faces with new obamamites. They are going out of their way to present a new personality.
This is similar to having a new kid in junior high school. After the first year or two of the new kid on the block the real deal eventually shows up. That is what Obama is. No experience, so he surrounds himself with former corruption and gives all the bad apples a new look. MAKEUP ! You can put all the makeup on you want. It eventually starts to run off. End this case it is being wiped off sooner then they realized.
Additional thoughts: Was it me or did Obama look a little fidgety. We also know about false and misleading polls.
President Administrations new motto, "YOU SAVE WE SPEND".
What a crock !
As usual Congressman Paul is right on.
It amazes me when those interviewing Dr. Paul try to out smart him when they haven't a clue what they are talking about.

Cult of personality. Even

A cult of personality phenomenon. Even here in Europe. Merkel, Sarkozy and EU presidency criticize Obama´s spending plans but he is able to fill any square with ten thousands of people. Remember Prague, Strasbourg, Berlin... anywhere. Many european people expects that he (Obama) will fix their economy too. No joke.

Very little hope

when there is this kind of broad support for this puppet idiot. I'll tell you...I will have little to no sympathy for the dolts around me when this whole thing s**ts the bed, as my husband would say. None.

Wow Mr. Obama...

Have you ever studied economics or are you just reading the script, because these ideas are crazy!

Is also important to point

Is also important to point that being backed by 71% does not make him right. War in Iraq was supported by 75% in 2003

I´m not american so maybe i

I´m not american so maybe i cannot understand this. I remember that Rasmussen Reports was accurately right about almost all november 2008 results, Obama´s 7 point lead over McCain included. Now CBS, NY Times, NBC, Washington Post, Newsweek... almost everybody gives much more favorable figures to Obama and Democrats than Rasmussen. According to Rasmussen americans prefer Democrats 45-42; according CNN they do 51-38. According to CBS only 25% trust republicans. Rasmussen says 32% of americans "strongly disapprove" Obama, but nobody else backs those numbers. Are the Mass Media working to make Obama´s agenda more tolerable?

Tsk, tsk, tsk Ron Paul, the

Tsk, tsk, tsk Ron Paul, the people have confidence in dear leader.

as wrote many times

One retarded nation under surveillance !!!

Whats with the view count?

"Seems to be stuck, Anyone else see that? Is this a common problem on youtube or shenanigans?"

One day later Its working again. Or at least the numbers changed.
Anyways, Go Ron! Keep smacking down those false arguments!

now it comes to starting wars to help the economy....

what a bunch of morons... there is so much that can be done in this country.. only if the government would get out of the way and let the private sector do it.....

Ron Paul for POTUS 2012

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

They say

starting wars solves the economy.
If that were true America would be floundering in money right now.
What a lie.

I just can't believe

I just can't believe Obama suggested that they can't cut back on spending when consumers are cutting back on spending.

What in the world is he talking about?

Do keynesians even believe this?

Consequence of fiat money

The element of truth to this only an artifact of fiat money. Note that when you "save" worthless paper, it puts people out of work, but if you save gold, it puts people to work.

They do. As if they don't

They do. As if the money doesn't need to be diverted or taken away from someone else first.

The politicians and the central planner loves Keynes, because it was the first economic theory that advocated gov spending, deficits and inflation to cure depression.

deficits, inflation, and the

deficits, inflation, and the idea of living for today and getting your hands on everything now without worrying about those around you. Worst part is so many people have bought into this while those of us who lean (or eat/sleep/breathe) Austrian just can't believe that this crap is still being pushed around. It's irresponsible and reprehensible that in todays technologically advanced society we still have these destructive economic ideas controlling the system.

The Poll Results Tell Me America Needs More Pain

Face it patriots. The revolution is still 2 years away.

Prepare your finances and supplies. You know the drill. Keep educating. Don't go head-to-head with the beast and lose your fractional freedom.

The FED is going to hold off the real pain for at least a year. All smoke and mirrors.

they have to hold off on the

they have to hold off on the real pain for a while so they can buy time to maneuver everything behind the scenes that will need to be place to act as "damage control" againist the inevitable revolt.

our best bet is to revolt now before they have anymore time to prepare againist us.

Non-violent of course. To

Non-violent of course. To be honest we lost the chance to do the bloody violent revolution after 9/11 with the creation of Homeland.

We have no choice but to bring the system down through non-compliance and, I hate to say it, re-education of the zombies.

Poll results

The Poll results are bogus. Its all in how you ask the question.

At least two awesome quotes here

"You can't start a war to get out of a depression!"


"The only thing that changes things - not personality - it has to be economic policy"




Amen. Can we impeach yet?
