I need some help or clairification from someone about Ron Pauls stance on the free market. I know that Ron very much supports a free market but what I need to know is if he supports any kind of rules and regulations? I believe a Pure Free Market/laissez-faire is not what he is advocating. There has to be some (very little) rules and regulations, such as Glass Steagall which he was opposed to repealing I believe.
So that is it. Does Ron Paul support a limited free market? Meaning some (very little) rules and regulations?
Please link me any relevant info.
Well I finally took the plunge and started some dialog with the folks over at occupywallst.org. I figured If I'm going to rant about liberty, constitutional government and sound money I might as well try and spread my message beyond the lowly forums of DP. Today I posted a message entitled, "Why I believe in capitalism and the free markets" I thought I'd share it with you all as well. I received some very positive feedback from folks over there. It's like they have never been exposed to the philosophies of Murry Rothbard.
I found this piece by the great Jacksonian, William Leggett, timely.
MORALS OF LEGISLATION
April 15, 1837
I don't wanna offend anyone, but I've budgeted 10% of my take-home pay to supporting Ron Paul. This money is spent on donations, advertising (Ron Paul merchandise or materials), and gas to get to a Ron Paul event. Trying to find the best products is the hard part. Donations, gas, and materials are pretty straightforward. Most of the merchandise I buy is bumper stickers, buttons, and shirts to give away. I've bought products from six or seven vendors online and could easily rate them best to worst.
I'm saying this with 20/20 vision -- there are some critiques of RP that take too long to counter-argue the "talking points" of pundits -- I call these the "Austrian Remnents," catch words or phrases that are meaningful when having a proper debate but cannot be explained away in the short-sighted talking points. An example would be SSN -- the Austrian "nut" (or view) is "do away with it." That's how the pundit quotes it now how do you in a sound bite defend it -- you can't.
Why isn’t the campaign video recording all of Ron Paul’s public speeches and Q&A sessions?
Ron Paul has given a few speeches since he started his campaign for the presidency, yet I believe I have seen only one that may have been recorded by the campaign. (Speech in Cedar Rapids?)
(I have a few of Ron Paul's public speeches on my site here: http://www.ronpauldailyne...)
Boom-Bust in a Free-Society can only happen in the short-run
---during new product innovation
---the only time to grow wealth
Boom-Bust under Corporatism (even under Capitalism) happens in the mid-to-long run and it happens in the short-run too, just not as dynamically as would happen in a free-society.
