WMD’s our only hope for survival?

After watching the following video, leave a comment explaining why the Iranians shouldn’t feel the need of nuclear weapons.

If Ron Paul isn’t elected president in 2012, we’re all going to be Iranians.  Enemies of the state.

In 2012 it’s RON PAUL or NOBODY AT ALL

Message to the GOP leadership and to their willing accomplices in the media:

In 2012, it’s RON PAUL or NOBODY AT ALL.

If the GOP thinks the Republican Party can regain the White House, it had better start recognizing and supporting the candidacy of Congressman, Doctor Ron Paul right now and start to honestly present the history and voting records of his big government, mainstream, media favorite opponents for what they are… regardless of the fact that some of them will come off looking like idiots, corporate shills, socialists and uninformed Tea Party imposters.

The following videos are presented for the simple purpose of illustrating that Ron Paul has been right for AT LEAST 23 years.  The first two videos were recorded in 1988 when Ron Paul ran for the office of president as the Libertarian Party candidate.  Notice that he explains what was going on back then and predicted EXACTLY what the result would be.

Part 1 – 1988 Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee Ron Paul interview.

Part 2 – 1988 Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee Ron Paul interview.

In this video we see that a mainstream media network isn’t happy that it inadvertently allowed Ron Paul’s accurate message to be aired and potentially heard by the American public.

John Stewart hosts a show on the comedy channel.  Even so, it’s possibly the least biased news outlet around.  In the following video, he exposes the blatent bias that exists on a variety of the so-called “legitimate” news channels.

If you don’t want to see Obama re-elected…  All Independents including libertarian Party, Green Party, Constitution Party members as well as freedom loving Republicans and Democrats need to register as Republicans to insure that Ron Paul becomes the GOP nominee and INSURE that either Ron Paul or Barack Obama will be the next president.

Personally;  If Ron Paul doesn’t win in 2012, I don’t think it matters who wins.

Dispute Resolution

I’m overwhelmed.  There are too many important politically oriented subjects in the news these days.  Most of them are bogged down with 30 second sound bites trying to explain or describe a complicated issue that I couldn’t properly explain without either writing a book or do a blog entry with footnotes referring to several credible outside sources.

Here’s a more frivolous topic.  Congressman Ron Paul is a candidate for the Republican presidential nominee.  He is 75 or 76 years old.  The media always brings up his age to diminish his credibility as a worthwhile candidate.  The last time I heard this done, Congressman Paul responded with a challenge that I wouldn’t accept.  Would you?

Competition in Currency

Sneaky

Sneaky No Longer Works

For some time now I’ve been thinking about all the revelations that the internet provides and how it’s ubiquitous communications capability has fundamentally altered the way everyone does business.  Especially government business.  Along those lines, it occurred to me the other day that our traditional economic policy of constantly inflating the currency in order to allow banks to securely service debt with only fractional reserves was dependent on the fact that the common, ordinary citizen bank customer never before realized that without the FED’s printing presses, all banks are insolvent because the only legal tender happens to be Federal Reserve Notes… which is inherently counterfeit.

At about the same time, I heard about Congressman Ron Paul’s “Free Competition in Currency Act.”  I connected the dots with the following letter to my legislative representatives.  Needless to say, I hope a lot of citizens learn about and support the benefits of having a legitimate currency.

Subject: Free Competition in Currency Act

Please co-sponsor and do all you can to help pass Ron Paul’s “Free Competition in Currency Act” (HR 1098).

Unless you are afraid of exposing the FED’s counterfeiting Federal Reserve Notes that have less and less value, you will want to co-sponsor and support HR 1098.

The only reason to oppose HR1098 is to hide the fact that counterfeiting is illegal for good reason and an admission that you don’t understand that Keynesian consumer stimulus schemes depend on a level of secrecy that the internet and worldwide communications technology have forever rendered obsolete.

In the wake of the FED’s expansion of it’s balance sheet, consumers in a bygone era consumed irresponsibly only because they had no reason to know that the influx of currency didn’t occur naturally because of an expansion in production. Now days everyone knows that these influx’s are temporary, fraudulent monetary perversions, and for that reason even banks aren’t pushing their ill-gotten gains into the marketplace.

Enter the 21st century and stop pretending that FED counterfeiting can be done in secret. Publicly and intellectually acknowledge that FED counterfeiting will never, ever again be able to trick citizens into believing that it isn’t fraud on a massive, worldwide scale.

History Of US Currency Defaults

Horror!  Tremble in fear for the possibility of (another) currency default.

We never learn, do we?

Cower in terror at the thought of Moody’s downgrading US currency.

What we really ought to do is reflect on past defaults and try to imagine the really horrible consequence of failing to stop this counterfeiting FED enterprise in it’s tracks right now before it’s too late to prevent our winding up like the Weimar Republic.

In it’s customary fashion, Mises.Org describes US currency default history.

I need to do some more studying.  How about you?
