• and...

    I will name a few things and you tell me if Republicans are better than Democrats...

    *Patriot Act
    *No WMDs
    *Rendition
    *Abu Ghraib
    *Homeland Security
    *Fema
    *Handling of Katrina aftermath
    *Letting TSA go through your luggage and taking your shoes off at airports (babies and seniors have to do so as well)

    the list goes on, it just depends on when you wake up, hopefully not too late...the revolution or the slow (or quick) devaluation of the dollar will not be televised...

  • Not much of a lesson

    I am neither Democrat nor Republican but with a Libertarian bias. As much as this story is a glowing review of the Republican's main difference from Democrats, this nice little story is misleading. It doesn't matter which political party you belong to. Even tho this story wants you to think that the Republicans are against stealing your money and giving it to someone else, it misses the entire point of people being "governed". Democrat or Republican is a divide and conquer mindset. Divide the people into two different camps and they will be easier to rule. Let them have the "elections" and swing from one political party to the other each election cycle depending on how much the president of that political party screwed up during his reign. Do we need to be reminded under which political party was in power when a possible false flag operation was carried out in the US? Do we need to be reminded that under the Republicans, the US went to war with false pretenses and those trillions of dollars were spent for nothing? How about the pork stuffed into legislation that both party members dont even bother to read? Sure they can get up on the podium and pound the stand and shout a few grievances, but nothing ever changes. The Democrats and Republicans are two sides of the same coin. If you do some homework, you will see the wizard behind the curtain and who is pulling the levers. Do some research and realize that the two political system in the US is a shell game.

  • ???

    The Wall Street Journal is still around? I thought people no longer trusted Wall Street...so why would anybody read it and take it seriously at this point in monetary history?

  • Partially true

    I would rather watch the revolution on television than from my bedroom window...the central bank factions are fighting each other right now, but I would bet on the Far East to win this time...I went to an area where freedom has been eroded "less"...if it changes in the future, I have no problem leaving...I hope you don't wait to leave until the revolution or hyperinflation is televised...because it won't be...

  • A world view on Freedom

    Hi everyone, I am orginally from Taiwan, however my background is a bit complicated. I am 29 and I moved from Taiwan when I was only 10 and have since lived for 8 years in Thailand, and 10 years in the United States. I have also lived in Toronto, Indonesia and now I am in my new home in Sydney, Australia. I would like to share a little about what I think of freedom after all my travels. To me, the United States and the US Constitution is an idea and not a geographical location. The ideas of freedom and liberty are within the minds of the people that live there. I arrived in the US in 1999 for school with high hopes for a better future only to witness the 9/11 "attacks" and the subsequent attack on Iraq. Not to mention the torture carried out in the name of "spreading democracy". I have since been obssessed with finding the truth of the American Empire and what I have found has led me to leave the United States in early 2009. I am a history and philosophy fanatic so I saw the signs and tactics that propagandists use and decided it was time to move on before the inevitable arrived. The videos online of people being molested by border patrol or poilcemen are disturbing, but not surprising in a society in decline. Hitler had the secret police and the Gestapo to whip the citizens into compliance through force. If people have to spell out for you that the militarization of the police in the US is a bad thing, you have a bit more waking up and thinking to do. I was a staunch supporter of Dr. Paul at my last job in the US only to be laughed at by my Californian friends. They think I am a Republican but I told them I am neither and that I do not swear allegiance to any country or government. The only advice I can offer the frustrated Americans who can no longer stand what's happening in the US is to leave. Leave and take your ideas of freedom and talent elsewhere where they are protected. That's what I have done. I research and move to countries where I believe I have more freedom and liberty. If I ever see the government I am under ever infringe on those rights, I research and move on. In this day and age, it is simple to do but many people would cite that as difficult. Many will cite that either family or the thought of leaving their own country is hard, then I must tell them that they have not yet realized how precious true freedom is. I leave you with a few quotes from men of history.

    True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made. - Franklin D. Roosevelt

    Men are so simple and so much inclined to obey immediate needs, that a deceiver will never lack victims for his deceptions. - Machiavelli

    There is all the difference in the world between treating people equally and attempting to make them equal. - F.A. Hayek

    The first panacea for a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency; the second is war. Both bring a temporary prosperity; both bring a permanent ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists. - Ernest Hemmingway...Notes on the Next War: A Serious Topical Letter...1935

    Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious. - Oscar Wilde

    Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel. - Samuel Johnson

  • Gestapo

    By the time the German public realized that they had been coerced and misled into believing that the Gestapo was there to "protect" them from foreign enemies, it was too late...how many do they take before people wake up?

    Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel. -Samuel Johnson

  • Wow

    Wow, CNN dedicates an entire webpage to Ron Paul's withdrawl from the presidential race, it must be "true"! Ahh...CNN, when have you ever steered me wrong?

  • no...

    the march is to get our message across, not to riot in the streets...

  • crunching some numbers

    I was reading a thread on Daily Paul earlier about a study of how large groups of people think. The study stated that it only takes about 5% of the population to change the direction of the rest of the 95%. So the population of the US is about 300 million, 5% of that is 15 million. The status quo knows that they only need to have riot police to control the rebellious 5% in order to control the 95%. So the march on Washington needs to have Ron Paul supporters showing up en masse. I don't know if we have 15 million RP supporters in the US. The march won't be effective if there are not enough people there. What do you guys think?

  • uh...

    but isnt that much better than Al Gore's 7.7.07 event where even more CO2 was emitted for the sake of saving the environment? At least we're accomplishing something truly revolutionary. Also consider the following about global warming...

    the Earth is to scale in this image...what is your common sense telling you?

    people who buy into the global warming scam may label us as people who don't care about the environment, that is completely the opposite of what we stand for. Governments and corporations have been working together for decades to rape the environment and now they want to work to help the environment by imposing a carbon tax on us? Please. The right solution is to impose no carbon tax and pass laws where polluting industries either go green or get shut down.

  • another bump!

    please don't feel discouraged 9 months before the general election, no matter what the MSM says or the primary results...

  • uh...

    you're kidding right? you're on the Daily Paul forum where many citizens have already studied up monetary policy and economic theory and this is the best you can come up with? Either you're ignorant and have not done your homework, or you're posting in the wrong forum on the wrong website.

  • bump

  • more proof of GOP vote fraud

    The man who went to jail for jamming the phones of the Democratic Party for the GOP wrote a book about vote fraud conducted by the GOP.

    ...look up the bilderberg group on youtube video or google video...

  • my two cents

    back in ancient greece, senators who vote in favor of war will have to go to the frontlines with their sons, so back then senators would have to put up or shut up. you don't get that kind of accountability now. as for people who support the current iraq invasion, if they are of serving age, why not join the army and put your money where your mouth is? it's easy to pay lip service that you support freedom and democracy while hiding behind people who are over there doing the real work. as for myself, knowing the whole truth behind all the nation building, it's common sense not to support any wars.
