I didn't know the Speaker had it in him.
"Boehner's invitation to Juszkiewicz was a shot across the bow to the president, whose agenda of regulations and new taxes is seen by critics as anti-business."
More spending, more programs, for more of the same stuff that got us here.
I was thinking to myself the other day how stupid it sounds to say: "We need more jobs".
Remember when a family could be supported by one salary? Well, that still would be the case if we had a sound currency.
A sound currency would keep prices down, allowing people to easily buy the basic things they need to live comfortably.
The problem isn't that we need more jobs, it's that the cost of living is too high!
Ron Paul needs to say this during the debates... I think it's a great way of explaining inflation and the importance of adopting a sound currency.
Staffers have leaked a few points of Obama's planned jobs speech.
Despite what the mainstream media may want you to believe Dr. Paul's message of small Government and maximum personal liberty is finally resonating with a growing majority of the general public. In the Ames, Iowa debate his knowledge and positions on foreign policy, the economy and monetary policy continued to differentiate himself from all the other Republican candidates who seem to serve only the maintenance of the status quo.

What happened to this idea that made America a self-sufficient republic, producing almost all it consumed, a nation that could stay out of the world wars as long as she wished and crush the greatest powers in Europe and Asia in less than four years after she went in?
A new class came to power that looked on tariffs as xenophobic, on economic patriotism as atavistic and on national sovereignty as an antique idea in the new world order it envisioned.
End wars, spending and reintroduce sound money
Lake Jackson, Texas- The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign released the following statement from National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton in response to the U.S. Department of Labor’s August 2011 Employment Situation Summary:
I was wondering if anyone is going to head to the coast and work cleaning up after Irene?
I know they are hiring people in Jacksonville NC, and some place in Houston Tx, and sending them out to the NC/Va coast.

I been talking to people...they saying if you have no skills..you can still make 500.00wk...if you got skills the pay is between 750.00/1200.00wk.
Hello everyone, this will be my first post on DP. I've been living in Japan for a few years now and am currently considering dusting off my BSME (mech. eng.) and looking for a tech job in Hawaii. Why Hawaii? Besides the stupendous weather, it's one of the few places I think my Japanese proficiency will come in handy. Looking around on the various recruiter sites, it seems that the main employer hiring in Hawaii for this kind of work is the military or companies that support the military like Lockheed Martin.
So here's where I'd appreciate some advice. As a Ron Paul supporter and libertarian-minded person, is it morally reasonable for me to try to find work in this industry? I mean, if I knew that everything they did was in fact for the defense of our country, there would be no problem. However, if I were to get a job, say, refurbishing torpedoes for the navy (this is a real job I came across) and these torpedoes were to be used overseas, wouldn't I just be supporting the military industrial complex? Am I overthinking this?
Thanks in advance for any advice on this.
....Yeah, being a bully has it's advantages. You get things, and people occasionally do what you want. I gotta start refuting some of your claims now though. This has gone too far. First, how are you going to pay your troops? How are you going to pay your FEMA's, EPA's, Medicares, etc.? When you start paying your soldiers with money that can't buy shit, are they gonna do any work for you? Are EPA employees going to go to work for free? It seems you, and many others, have not grasped this idea fully yet. Unless you believe that everyone will work for the "good of the nation".
it will now be Thursday not Wednesday (debate night)
Politico: Paul may object to President Barack Obama’s surprise request to address a joint session of CongressSubmitted by the clover helix on Wed, 08/31/2011 - 15:46
I hope he does it!!!
"Texas Rep. Ron Paul, a Republican candidate for the presidency, is considering whether to use his power as a House member to object to President Barack Obama’s surprise request to address a joint session of Congress at the same time as a long-planned Republican presidential debate on Sept. 7.
“Dr. Paul is weighing his options,” the veteran congressman’s spokesman, Jesse Benton, told POLITICO when asked whether Paul would object to a voice vote on a concurrent resolution allowing for the president to speak from the House chamber."
