In Ron Paul’s latest video released on his Congressional site he talks about his questioning of Bernanke yesterday. The video is a bit of a scholastic lecture on our fiat money system. During it, he claims, more than once, that our financial system has collapsed.
Ron Paul appeared on FOX Business News today following his grilling of Ben Bernanke on Capitol Hill. He accuses Bernanke and Paulson of price fixing among some other choice words. Paul’s contention is that they are fighting against what the market wants and their efforts to subvert the market will fail because the “market is more powerful than the central bankers”.
A favorite Paul comment:
“No I didn’t get answers, and I didn’t expect any.”
Ron Paul was interviewed by Neil Cavuto on FOX News this morning regarding the G20 financial summit hosted by George W. Bush at the White House. I wish they discussed Bush’s sudden and recent championing of “free market capitalism”, but it was a bit more toward the standard Ron Paul rhetoric we have become used to.
He again says that these leaders don’t have a clue how to “fix” the economic calamity, and in fact, they can’t. He attacks the central bankers as the real movers and shakers in the cause of the mess saying they are meeting overseas, secretly, and we have no idea what they are doing since there is no transparency.
Ron Paul has released a new video discussing this weekend’s global economic summit with the G20 leaders. He expresses skepticism about the U.S. being able to maintain its economic independence against the push by Europe and China for a new reserve currency and more global centralized control.
George W. Bush is fighting against such centralized control, but how can we trust his words when they’ve been so far from reality in the last eight years? Ron Paul does not believe anything will be decided at this weekend’s summit, but believes it begins the discussion toward global economic planning.
Also of note is that Ron Paul will appear tomorrow around noon on the FOX News channel during a two hour special on the economic summit hosted by Neil Cavuto.
Ron Paul appeared on FOX News with Neil Cavuto today to discuss the latest bailout package: adding another $50 Billion of taxpayer money to the coffers of AIG. Ron Paul is like a beautifully welcomed broken record. A few choice quotes from this latest appearance from Dr. Paul are listed below along with the video.
“When companies get too big and make mistakes they should fail.”
“We’re propping up all the bad mistakes.” (which penalizes the people that made the right choices)
“Governments can’t make the correct decisions. They aren’t smart enough.”
“This whole idea that Washington are genuises… that they can do central economic planning. In this country we don’t call it socialism we call it interventionism and a planned economy.”
Obama coming in is a lot like “Hoover leaving and Roosevelt coming in.”
Ron Paul appeared on CNN American Morning again today. He was asked about the state of the Republican Party. Paul sarcastically acted shocked that he wasn’t invited to the secret meeting of “GOP elders” looking to move the Republican Party forward. As usual Ron Paul doesn’t disappoint.
Video has been released for the hour long debate between Bob Barr, Chuck Baldwin, and Ralph Nader that was held last Thursday afternoon at the City Club of Cleveland in Ohio. For those that have rejected the two major party candidates this is your chance to compare the next tier of candidates. Although for some of us, we consider these 3 candidates our first tier.
The debate explores issues that you haven’t heard much about from the two major party candidates. That is quite refreshing in and of itself. Grab your beverage of choice, sit back and watch the debate below.
