    Is the Perfect Storm Forming for Ron Paul?

    Is the Perfect Storm Forming for Ron Paul?

    by Murray Sabrin

    What a week! The stock market took a dive to just over 13,000 on the Dow Jones Industrial Average from an all-time high of 14,000 less than a month ago. The world’s major central banks flooded the financial system with tens of billions of dollars to prop up the banks and the mortgage market.

    Meanwhile, the unending wars in Afghanistan and Iraq continue to drain the U.S. military; the bills for the Bush-Cheney invasion of two nations that did not attack us or threaten to attack us are rocketing to the one trillion dollar mark.

    In other words, we are witnessing the unfolding of the collapse of the welfare–warfare–fiat-money complex that has ruled America since 1913, the year the Federal Reserve was created and the Sixteenth Amendment was added to the U.S. Constitution allowing the federal government to impose an income tax on the American people.

    Of all the GOP and Democrat presidential candidates, only Representative Ron Paul of Texas has been diagnosing correctly the shortcomings of the welfare–warfare–fiat-money state. In fact, last Friday on Larry Kudlow’s CNBC show Dr. Paul demonstrated once again why he is the only presidential candidate who understands how the Federal Reserve creates financial bubbles that always end in pain and suffering, especially for low and middle income Americans.

    Economist Murray Rothbard identified the losers in the inflation race:

    Inflation…redistributes the wealth in favor of the first-comers and at the expense of the laggards in the race. And inflation is, in effect, a race – to see who can get the new money earliest. The latecomers – the ones stuck with the loss – are often called the "fixed income groups." Ministers, teachers, people on salaries, lag notoriously behind other groups in acquiring the new money. Particular sufferers will be those depending on fixed money contracts – contracts made in the days before the inflationary rise in prices. Life insurance beneficiaries and annuitants, retired persons living off pensions, landlords with long term leases, bondholders and other creditors, those holding cash, all will bear the brunt of the inflation. They will be the ones who are "taxed."

    And who are the winners? Wall Street banks, real estate speculators and others who are the initial recipients of easy money.

    So, if we want to end the boom and bust cycle we need to restore sound money – gold and silver as the foundation of our monetary system, as prescribed the U.S. Constitution. At the very least, the FED should stop creating money out of thin air. But stopping the inflating of the nation’s currency would not sit well with the Wall Street crowd, because they are the prime beneficiaries of easy money. In other words, halting inflation would drop real estate prices in the Hamptons, Aspen and other locations where the beneficiaries of inflation have bid up the price of houses and condos. And forget about those end-of-year bonuses. Under a sound monetary system, speculating in currency and other markets would be greatly diminished.

    As a student of the Austrian School of Economics, Dr. Paul is familiar with the contributions of Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard, Henry Hazlitt and dozens of others who advocated free markets and sound money. Professor Mises spent his long academic career warning about the dangers of inflation, the printing of money by central bankers.

    Professor Mises long ago showed the relationship between war and inflation, a point Rep. Paul has reiterated throughout his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination.

    “Inflationism, however, is not an isolated phenomenon. It is only one piece in the total framework of politico-economic and socio-philosophical ideas of our time. Just as the sound money policy of gold standard advocates went hand in hand with liberalism, free trade, capitalism and peace, so is inflationism part and parcel of imperialism, militarism, protectionism, statism and socialism.”

    Mises used liberalism in its original meaning: limited government, low taxes, and free trade. The term has been hijacked in the 20th century by the proponents of big government.

    War, credit bubbles, runaway government spending, a bankrupt entitlement system, are the result of big government liberalism and neo-conservatism.

    Last Saturday, Rep. Paul clearly and passionately spoke the truth about these issues at the Iowa Straw poll conference center. Coming in fifth place with just under 10 percent of the vote is a great achievement in his long-shot campaign for the GOP presidential nomination.

    Once GOP voters realize where inflation and war are taking the country, they will rally around Ron Paul, the only candidate for peace, freedom and prosperity.

    Came in a close second....the third place finisher and the rest of the pack were left in the dust...yet they will get more headlines than Ron Paul.

    Currently as the story is going....No GOP candidate will win in 2012, Obama will slip in, probably in a Bushesque barely made it model.

    But the only candidate that will affect the American psyche, and both sides of the aisle...will be a nomination of Ron Paul, someone who will actually attack and discuss serious issues and not just make platitudes to satisfy the constituency and get elected.

    Will Ron Paul die on the vine and be lableled a crack pot in the end like Ross Perot? Probably. But his rhetoric and arguments during the debates and campaign trail would affect our legislation for a decade.
    It's a ing joke.

    You think you have a choice?

    You have no choice.

    Debate Poll:

    Who Won Tonight's CNN Debate in Las Vegas
    • Ron Paul (57%)
    • Mitt Romney (19%)
    • Herman Cain (12%)
    • Newt Gingrich (7%)
    • Rick Perry (2%)
    • Rick Santorum (2%)
    • Michele Bachmann
    I don't agree with everything Ron Paul has to say but at least he's saying something different over the standard useless platidtudes.


    I have to agree with a comment made by one of the posters in the OP's article.

    Your shitty poll won’t let me select Ron Paul. “Please choose a valid answer”
    As a precinct committeeman I am witnessing first hand what a crock of shit the GOP has become.
    There proclamation didn’t even include the word constitution any way, shape or form.
    It does now in the very first sentance. I raised the issue and no one dared object. The meetings are like a cheerleading camp. All they care about is beating the other team. They have no problem following orders of their corrupt cult leaders. But they will make every effort to keep constitutionally grounded new guys out of their clicks.
    The media, like this poll, is just like those meetings pretending Ron Paul doesn’t exist"

    The entire american political and economic system is a complete and utter sham as are "both" political parties. The Republican party itself will bury Ron Paul just like it did last cycle being such that he won't play along with the vested interests of the Republican party in the status quo.
    Yeah, but hey, we're white!

    For those that want to review Ron Paul's Plan to restore America


    http://c3244172.r72.cf0.rackcdn.com/...mericaPlan.pdf


    Ron Paul Announces Ambitious ‘Plan to Restore America’
    Realistic solutions to spending, tax challenges
    LAKE JACKSON, Texas – The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign announced the release of Dr. Paul’s “Plan to Restore America,” an ambitious federal government spending, tax and reform blueprint that as President he will implement.

    The plan, authored by Paul’s campaign staff at his direction, promises to restore the federal government to its former Constitutionally-limited, smaller-government and less-burdensome place. The plan cuts $1 trillion in federal spending during the first year of a Paul Presidency and delivers a balanced budget in year three of a Paul Presidency.

    “Ron Paul’s plan is the only one that seriously addresses the economic and budgetary problems our nation faces. It cuts $1 trillion in one year, and slashes regulations and taxes so our economy can grow and create jobs,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton, a plan co-author.

    “It’s the only plan offered by a presidential candidate that actually balances the budget and begins to pay down the debt. And it’s the only plan being offered that tries to reign in the Federal Reserve and get inflation under control.”

    Cuts totaling $1 trillion during the first year of a Paul Presidency would be achieved by eliminating five federal cabinet departments – the Departments of ******, Housing and Urban Development, Commerce, Interior and Education. Cuts of this scale will also be accomplished by a Paul Presidency abolishing the Transportation Security Administration and returning responsibility for security to private property owners, abolishing corporate subsidies, stopping foreign aid, ending foreign wars, and returning most other spending to 2006 levels.

    Ok I understand some of this but perhaps you can highlight why he would want to remove the department of ******, Housing and Urban Development, Commerce, Interior and Education.

    I get ending the TSA it's a bush administration home land security thing.

    I get pulling back from foreign wars. That would cut a trillion right there.

    I even get cutting back on some subsidies. You can't do a blanket approach but some subsidies have been in place since the 1960's and have no use or place in the current economy.

    I believe it's because he thinks that states should administer those things themselves. That they shouldn't be a part of the federal government.
