Nice video but ultimately heartbreaking

The images and the audio were nicely put together. One poster thought the speech was lukewarm, but I thought it was fine. Not too strident and not too dull. The speaker took a fairly straightforward line.

But it's heartbreaking. Because, despite the outrage against the FED, the rallies, the speeches, the Tea Parties, and other initiatives, the FED is here to stay. The groundswell of support from Our Side will only cause Bernanke and Co to re-assert the FED's necessity. And they have enough 'made guys' in Congress to make sure that it will be business as usual, no matter what we, or others, do, in protest.

On a slightly encouraging note... One of the people in the video had a sign that said (I think) Tea Party. Next time we Riot.

The only thing that can save our Repubic now is a revolution or a military coup. Were that to happen, virtually all of Congress and the Administration would get the boot. Then, people with smarts and integrity could take over and restore some sanity to the U.S.

Do I see this happening? It could, if enough people got angry enough. I am hopeful that some enlightened Military leader could mobilize some units to take over DC and establish a provisional government, in the interests of the People.

Before Napoleon became First Consul (and later Emperor) of France, he despatched soldiers to 'clear' the house of corrupt representatives. (This was before Napoleon himself became corrupt). Anyhow, when the soldiers entered, the representatives literally jumped out the windows. It was all over in less than an hour.

I hope something like that will happen. Do I think it will? No. But one can hope for a future that is better than the present reality.

I applaud the Spirit of HR 1207

but at this point, what is it good for- So that we can know every detail of what's already happened? Great legislation; just 90 years too late to have any real effect.

The damage the Central Bank was designed to confer has already happened- The country has already been pillaged. 1207 is just an autopsy or perhaps a "murder investigation". But, the corpse is still dead.

My guess is that the globalists at this point could care less about our protests of "Ending the FED" or any other National central bank for that matter. The National central banks have all done their job- they've served the purpose for which they were designed- the destruction of independent monetary systems and independent nation-states. The global power-players have long since moved on to the World Bank, BIS and the IMF. The bailouts were just one final attempt to "squeeze the last drop" out of the (U.S.) turnip for "old-times sake".

I don't think any war will be necessary.

But Secession probably is necessary. The odds of a second 'civil war' resulting from secession of US states are very low. The only way Washington could win in a 'second civil war scenario' would be if nukes were used. They would not do that on north American soil.

It's not a game they can win.

Don't Dismiss A Political Solution...Yet

I think there is a danger for those of us who have a deep understanding of the Federal Reserve and the true nature of our Government. I've caught myself thinking many times that a political solution is no longer possible to restore America to a Constitutional Republic. When I wrote this speech for the San Antonio Tea Party I had come to the conclusion that a political solution is still very much possible. There are signs to support this theory.... The Obama administration is more extreme then many of his supporters expected, and some of them have deep remorse for supporting him. McCain is absolutely hated by the majority of Republicans now and there is a civil war going on within the GOP. The election in 2010 will be a critical indicator of the state of the freedom movement. If most of key incumbents in the GOP are defeated in the primary of 2010 there will be an opportunity for significant number of constitutionalists to be elected. That will setup a political revolution in 2012. I believe there is a potential for a reversal far bigger then the Republican Revolution in 1994. Remember our Republic was under attack from the start. John Adams shockingly turned into a tyrant and violated the constitution with the alien & sedition act of 1798. That was quickly overturned by Thomas Jefferson when he was elected.. The Federal Reserve was the third attempt at a central bank the other two were abolished. Political solutions have succeeded in the past. I'm under no illusion that a political solution is going to be easy in fact it will be extremely difficult. That being said the alternative is not viable unless it's a massive uprising. I don't see the necessary outrage in the general public. We are too spoiled by our creature comforts for the time being, to be willing to take up arms. Any attempt at an armed rebellion at this point would be hopeless and deadly. A undersized revolt would actually strengthen the state. People will not tolerate chaos for any length of time and would side with the Government. This is exactly how Hitler came into power. He took advantage of an economic crisis and staged small false flag acts of terrorism then promised to restore order. That is a real possible outcome of anything other then a political solution. Precisely the reason that the only option for now is a political solution.

How many Keynsians saw this crises coming?


Wow, that was good.

If you have been a part of this movement, you can appreciate that speech. Trolls please go elsewhere.

Ron Paul is my President.

He's no Tom Woods.

Rather lukewarm speech, I must say.

I disagree

The content was fantastic. He spelled out in simple terms that could be understood by a 5th grader the difference between free market capitalism and corporatism/mercantilism as well as pulling the curtain from the Fed. I liked it enough to post it to my facebook page

very well done considering

most of them there had no clue about Federal Reserve and he didn't mention our president's name. Stupid or not let support this bill, we need numbers now

Great Speech

GB should have put that guy and his speech on his show. We need to share this with everyone!

WOW! THIS is how to plant seeds.....

That silence you heard was the sound of their little brains being stuffed with enlightenment! I think that group went home with LOTS to think about. SNEAK ATTACK! YAY!
