Social Security Trust Fund — Did you know?

First, a definition is in order:

Trust Fund: Government funds that are designated by law as trust funds (regardless of any other meaning of that term). Trust funds display the revenues, offsetting receipts or offsetting collections, and outlays that result from implementation of the law that designated the fund as a trust fund. The federal government has more than 200 trust funds. The largest and best known finance major benefit programs (including Social Security and Medicare) and infrastructure spending (the Highway and the Airport and Airway Trust Funds). [source]

Did you know that the Social Security Trust Fund is a misnomer?

Ron Paul at the Johns Hopkins School of International Studies

If you have a spare 60 minutes or so, this speech is probably the best one yet by Ron Paul.  He’s able to explain his positions in a clear and concise way without interruption.  He then takes several questions.

Listen to it here.

Did Ron Paul Get His Facts Wrong during the Debate?

September 7th, 2007 3:50 pm  |  by  |  Published in Election, History, Media, Philosophy, Politics, Ron Paul, War  |  Comments Off

This article at Street.Com examines the Ron Paul and Mike Huckabee debate and gives evidence as to why Huckabee was just using demogoguery and Paul was just using facts.

This article demonstrates that Ron Paul sticks to his principles and backs them up with facts. If you were questioning Paul’s sincerity before, then reading this should leave no question.

Wow Ron Paul was under attack for his Iraq war position in this debate, naturally. He seemed rather irked and spoke back with sincere passion.  See for yourself below.

Ron Paul’s Inaugural Address

September 5th, 2007 7:23 am  |  by  |  Published in Activism, Politics, Ron Paul  |  Comments Off

This was posted on lewrockwell.com.  It is a “what if” scenario.  This could be what Ron Paul’s inaugural address may sound like.

It is worth the read because it is not just a heartfelt push, but rather it includes some interesting statistics on how big the federal government has grown in recent years.
