    Can't believe this, so much disinformation. Unfortunately, most people will just assume what he is saying is correct, when it is so misleading and slanderous, that I think if it were me he was talking about, there would be a lawsuit.

  • I understand your pessimism,

    I understand your pessimism, but remember that the support for this bill is happening because of the groundswell of grassroots support. It's not just an outside fringe voice anymore.

    Of course that didn't help much when we opposed the bailout.

    I think he was also trying to say that more regulations punish everybody that hasn't done anything wrong, assuming they are "guilty" until they prove their innocence.

  • Same Reason he accepted

    Same Reason he accepted money from the Stormfront guy. Nobody corrupts or influencs his votes or his positions. He is informed only by the Constitution. People support RP for a myriad of reasons. Abortion is an important issue, but I think of it more as a symptom than a root casue of a lot of problems. When people are truly free and truly understand and accept responsibility for their decisions, there will be a drastic decrease in abortions. If all abortions were made illigal today, the practice would still continue because it is a symptom of a people whose government has warped their sense of responsibility and morals.

  • Of course he wants to end

    Of course he wants to end the income tax, but he doesn't want to replace it with a consumption tax. Besides, the FED's inflation is way more evil and insidious than any seen tax.

  • I do, too. If the welfare

    I do, too. If the welfare state were to be ended, and people truly had responsibility for their own lives, then they would regulate what types of drugs are beneficial and what types are harmful. I don't believe meth would have ever become a problem in this country if their were no prohibition.

  • Gateway Drug

    The reason that people say that marijuana is a gateway drug is because it is illegal, and once you defy the state and use it, you are no longer controlled by the state, you realize the drug is not that dangerous (you've been lied to) and you wonder what else you're being lied to about, and what else you should try since you've already "broken the law" anyway.

    If it had never been made illegal, it wouldn't be a gateway drug.

    If they made aspirin illegal, then it could be a gateway drug, too.

    STUPID argument.

    If people regulate themselves, they will be much better off. I've never used drugs, but it has nothing to do with the state. It has to do with my family, my religion and my own common sense. If I were to suffer from some of the ailments I've seen others suffer from, such as severe anxiety, I would rather use marijuana than xanax, which is addictive, habit forming, and has sever withdrawal symptoms, including seizures. Oh, and it's legal.

    We can thank the war on drugs for the rise in meth, the increased potency of marijuana, the millions of drug-related crimes, and many lives ruined over non-crimes.

  • I agree. Drug prohibition

    I agree. Drug prohibition is becoming as unpopular as alcohol prohibition. I have never used drugs, never even taken a drink of alcohol, but I can still see the foolishness and great harm caused by the war on drugs. The drug war is unconstitutional. If we could just force the federal government to attempt an amendment to the constitution like the 18th amendment (later repealed by the 21st) we could have the debate and the people could speak.
    Not much chance of that happening.

  • I became a Libertarian in

    I became a Libertarian in 2004 when I couldn't stomach Bush or Kerry, and began looking at alternatives. I was going to support Steve Kubby for 2008, because I didn't like the fact that Ron Paul was running as a Republican. But then I started to see stuff pop up on the internet and started to see the passion behind him. I began to read his articles and listen, and it has been an amazing education. All of the conservatives/libertarians that are so upset about taxes really need to understand that taxes are not nearly as problematic as an unaccountable money machine.

  • Did anyone hear his little 2

    Did anyone hear his little 2 minute sketch on the Fed yesterday on his radio show? I could not believe I was actually hearing it! It was done all zany like, but it was a great expose on the problems the FED has caused for this country. It seems like he thinks that most people will zone out and get bored if he talks about this stuff, so he feels like he has to make it entertaining. Despite that, he showed a profound knowledge of the role of the Federal Reserve in our current economic mess.

  • I used to think the Fair Tax

    I used to think the Fair Tax was a good idea until I understood the Federal Reserve. All transparency dissappers with the Fed. So while better than the income tax, it still does nothing to address the real problem.

  • For those that think this was a good idea-

    I don't have any sympathy for a company with their hand out to the Govt. And this is just further proof that the Govt. cannot effectively run a company- they make political decisions, not business decisions.

    The scariest thing to me is that they will see the necessary talent leaving these companies, and they will need to take drastic measures to stop that. The government has already predetermined that they need to prop up these companies. When has the government ever admitted it was wrong and cut a program? I can already hear Komrade Obama saying "We just need to level the playing field. From here on out, no CEO of any company will earn more than X dollars, regardless of whether they have received federal assistance."

    Regulation ALWAYS begets more regulation. ALWAYS.

  • Ponzi Scheme

    The "Paradox of Thrift" will also bring down a Ponzi Scheme. As long as everybody think it's ok and keeps pumping money into it, it works fine, and nobody gets hurt. But the second someone starts to question it and pull their money, the whole system collapses. So if savings and thrift weaken our economy, that tells you everything you need to know about the fundamentals of the whole thing.
