Nah, this won't be on MSNBC or Fox News tonight. Ron Paul predicts worldwide economic crisis, complete with the loss of liberty





When researchers 500 years from now look back at the American empire circa 1980 - 2010, they'll come across Ron Paul. And they'll say "damn, that's one dude that understood what was going on. Too bad nobody listened"

A partisan Democrat kicks off this video, but then Ron Paul brings it home. Watch the whole thing. Damn, it would be nice to see him run as an Independent. His voice is needed in the debates.

And folks, I want to amend my "VOTE ALL THE BUMS OUT - ALL OF 'EM" recommendation. For the people in Texas, 14th District only, I'll make one and only one exception - PLEASE KEEP RON PAUL IN THE HOUSE.

Everyone else everywhere - kick 'em out. All of 'em.

I really wonder what all the other fools in congress sit there thinking when Paul is talking. Do they just cover their ears?

Wish old Ron would run Independent also...This is about as lame as it gets when it comes to candidates. The thing is Clintons are power hungry , Obama is unqualified and McCain is GW Bush's clone. At least with Paul you feel that he understands finance and could stop some of the blatant corruption.

Ron Paul is the only reasonable candidate in the election. Too bad he'll never be elected. I guess he's just too "inconvenient" to many people in the government and the corporations behind it.

Afterthought said...

I love how the Democrat wanted to yield to Paul as if he was in her caucus!

Paul had to get a GOP hack to give him time...

The Dems would astound me if they actually turned this thing around; if they listen to Ron Paul they have a chance.

That stupid witch really thought there was going to be a $5.6 trillion budget surplus based on the projections of the tax revenues from the dotcom ponzi scheme. That would have only happened had the NASDAQ reached 500,000 by 2011 and the government could reap the capital gains taxes. She's not even smart enough to be a realtor. Those are the people being voted into Congress and we wonder why this country is in such trouble

She said the economy in 2001 was healthy? That's like saying the economy in 2006 was healthy. They were both propped up by bubbles.

Ron Paul is hitting 'em right between the eyes with the truth and they're thinking it's time for a fresh Botox injection to eliminate the annoying pain.

Not only is RP pointing out the elephant in the room - insane MIC spending - he's also recommending they reposition their flag pins higher on their lapels before the deepening eleghant crap covers up their symbolic patriotism.

I don't have much faith that much can happen about the economy. I do hope however that the GOP national convention ends up in riot.

It's possible because of the caucus states. For example, RP didn't win that much in the WA vote, but, at my county convention, all 6 delegates to the state convention for my district are RP delegates, and the first 4 of the 6 alternates are RP people. In the larger district from my county, we won something like 27/32 delegates to the state convention.

During the convention, we had almost 50% of the voting delegates and we were able to push some things into and out of the county GOP platform. More as time went on and people left (RP delegates don't leave -- too committed).

If this repeats at the state level, and if it happens in enough states, the National GOP convention should be pretty interesting. Break out the firehoses, the attack dogs, and the barricades because there will be riots. It got pretty hot at the county level -- I can only imagine the anger and frustration neo-cons will feel if we end having a big enough group to disrupt their BS.

The guy who prescribes the bitter medicine will never get elected. On top of military and entilement spending we'll now see bailouts to the tune of $1 trillion dollars. As Ron Paul said, this will end badly.
No matter how much bailing congress does, gravity will take over and house prices will revert back to a level in line with what people can afford. The longer this process will be dragged out the longer the pain will last.

To the gentleman from WA: I am a Ron Paul-supporting delegate in GA. I am going to both state and district conventions. We have a significant portion of the delegacy statewide. This is gonna be interesting!

Paul is not a member of the Bilderberg or Council of Foreign Relations. Even though what he says is accurate, most Americans are clueless and have little power against what the elitists are planning. In the end, if you can barely make ends meet (rising gas and food prices, greater unemployment....) of course you'll be looking for the gov't to "save" you. That's the elitists plan....remember, fascism will come slowly with a smile on its face , not through a military coup.

Love you Ron but your just one of us little people:)

This is why I respect Ron Paul even more than Shiller and Zandi. Shiller and Zandi are brilliant economists and correctly identify the weakness in the economic system and the errors of past policy. But they share the same flaw as the command-and-control Soviets - they think they can outsmart the invisible hand of the free markets.

Only Ron Paul understands that organized attempts to control and guide the economy, however well-intentioned, end in failure.

The same is true for international policy: attempts to impose liberty on societies that lack the necessary political maturity will end in failure. Even Kennedy failed to understand that you cannot force freedom on a people who do not appreciate its virtues.

Ron Paul is a modern-day Gandhi.

He is a typical Libertarian. Great at calling out half the problem but then doesn't deliver on the rest of what is what is needed to solve things. I wish it were as simple as Libertarians make it out to be. I don't disagree with Ron Paul's message but I just find "Strong defense and No Government Intervention" to be very short-sighted. I too don't believe in bailouts and nation building but I do strongly believe in solid regulation and diplomacy to avoid the need for bailouts and wars down the road. Reasonable intervention on domestic and international issues is a good thing. It insures equality and accountability and keeps the greedy at bay and "helps" prevent unnecessary carnage in the world. I like to think I have the freedom to move around in my own country because of laws and government trying to protect my safety and to be able to travel abroad. If the U.S. was an isolationist, then the world would be an even darker place than it already is. Government managed by good sound minds is not the enemy, they cannot solve all problems nor should they be expected to. However, they can keep a level playing field for the masses and do things like guarantee health care and social security while we pay for it with hard work and well managed tax revenues. This is possible with the right people in power. (The Bush Administration is the opposite of my idea of the right people.)

As I was watching the vid, I was thinking the exact same thing. I think half the fools don't even show up for speeches like that.

We need to go back to the original system per the Constitution where the people can only vote for their two representatives in the House. This would restore sanity to Congress and force the sheeple to pay attention close to home instead of voting once every 4 years in a presidential election that is so media-biased that no one ever gets the truth on the candidates.

For all the talk about finance and fiscal stuff, it all comes down to protection of liberty. Why don't people get it?

Paul is just another anti government nut. I wonder how he see's his role as an elected official, restrain the government from intervening in the economy?

You can get millions of idiotic baby boomers to voice the same rant that Paul makes daily on the floor of congress. There is nothing special or more importantly truthful in anything that he says.

Paul is an idiot.

Libertarians are like the the guy who enjoys the morning donuts in the breakroom without contributing to the donut fund. They benefit from all the services our taxes pay for, but don't want to pay them themselves. The fact that Paul is right on about the current economic crisis doesn't change that. BTW. Isn't it lack of gov't regulation that got us into this mess?

very concerned said...

Paul returns a portion of his salary to the the federal government each year.

I love him. And he has a huge following despite the MSM.

Reddy Watt said...

Same thing with the delegates in my state. We rocked in all the districts except mine, but ours was first and we learned from it. Now the party bosses who tried to trip us up are attempting to reconcile. Best of luck 'cause we run the show now.

Oddly the legislators who spoke in the various caucuses seemed to be preparing us for a Hillary victory. They would say a few words about McCain, and then speak at length about how smart and respected Hillary was.

Also lots of strong messages about the gay plague. Only the freaks responded to that. They didn't know jack about the economy. I personally put the fear of recession in the minds of a few bible thumpers. They are easily lead it seems.

Its like Dr Paul stated...its what is 'expected' by the people as to what the government is to do. Its ALL f'ed up people.
For the past 20-25 years, Americans have been fed, not only high fructose corn syrup, but LIES about the so-called 'American dream'. Don't worry about your debts! We'll print more!
The chickens are coming home to roost and I am thankful I do not have children under my care. The Mrs and I are liquidating any remaining debts...penny pinching and getting for the reality tsunami to wash over these shores.
Unfortunately, I will see my beloved country destroyed.

Question is...what else is coming down the pike...?

I think we will ALL be living very interesting times.

Godspeed.

Yes, you are correct sir. Take a look all of FDR's regulations have been overturned over the last 20 + years.

Ron Paul is just a Milton Friedman stooge. An anti government kook who believes in the magic of the markets.

Give me Lincoln, FDR or JFK anyday. We could make a fight of it with any of these three Presidents.

Paul, what can this idiot offer? He believes in magic.

Too bad attendance at Congress is laughable at best. No one there to hear him speak. Besides, America had their chance to truly CHANGE America and it chose John "effin" McCain. Let America burn for her sins...I know I'll suffer along with the rest of them, but so be it. Bring on Obama's fake change, at least I'll vote along with 60 million other idiots. Humans always revert to herd instincts...

Ron was left out from the GOP operated TV news stations and newsprint companies because he is an honest leader with American Values. We are doomed.
