From time to time, a few members of Congress—as many as 10, sometimes fewer—gather with Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) to eat lunch and hear from an author or expert whose opinion he thinks is worth promoting. They grab something to eat off of a deli plate. They take notes. They loosen up and ask questions.

“It’s not all that easy for the other members to get here,” Paul said in an interview with TWI, sitting just outside of his office before heading back to Texas for a few days. “It’s just that there’s so much competition. Once they get here and they get going, they all seem to enjoy it.”

A funny thing has started happening to Paul since his long-shot presidential campaign ended quietly in the summer of 2008. More Republicans have started listening to him. There are the media requests from Fox Business Channel and talk radio, where he’s given airtime to inveigh on sound money and macroeconomics. There is HR 1207 , the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009, a bill that would launch an audit of the Federal Reserve System, and which has attracted 112 co-sponsors. When Paul introduced the Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act just two years ago, no other members of Congress signed on.

And then there are the luncheons. The off-the-record talks have brought in speakers such as ex-CIA counterterrorism expert Michael Scheuer, libertarian investigative reporter James Bovard, iconoclastic terrorism scholar Robert Pape, and George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley. Perhaps the most influential guest has been Thomas Woods, a conservative scholar whose previous books include “The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History” and “Who Killed the Constitution?: The Fate of American Liberty from World War I to George W. Bush,” and whose current book “Meltdown” has inspired Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) to question Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner about economic fundamentals.

Paul’s unexpected and sudden clout with his fellow Republicans — even some of Paul’s staff have been surprised with the momentum of his “Audit the Fed” bill — come as the GOP engages in a tortured internal dialogue about its future. Since January, no small number of new coalitions have formed between current members of Congress, former advisors to President George W. Bush, and perennial party leaders such as former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-Mass.) and former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.). Few of those conservatives, however, have spent much time criticizing the very foundations of America’s modern economic system and worrying about a 1929-style crash. Few of them had a drawer stuffed with off-brand economic ideas and forgotten libertarian texts, ready to explain what needed to be done. Ron Paul did, and as a result the ideas that made the Republican establishment irate enough to bounce him from a few primary debates are more popular than ever.

“There’s a growing recognition that the GOP is intellectually bankrupt and morally bankrupt,” explained Bovard. “Most of these Republican ‘rebranding’ efforts amount to a group of overpaid consultants getting detached from reality, but I’m glad that Paul is putting together these meetings. I hope the battle of ideas is changing.”

The success of Paul’s events, however under-the-radar, have been a pleasant surprise for the experts. “I’ll admit it,” said Thomas Woods. “I was dead wrong in my first reaction when I heard Ron talking about the Fed on the campaign trail. I said, ‘This is too complicated for most Americans. This isn’t going to galvanize people.’ I was wrong! He’s taken an issue that wasn’t even an issue, and he’s got a lot of Americans suddenly fascinated by the Fed, by monetary policy, by the Austrian business cycle theory,” economic ideas promoted by thinkers like Ludwig von Mises and Murray Rothbard that blame central banks for painful business cycles.

Since his congressional comeback in 1996 — after a long stint as a Libertarian Party politician, and after only narrowly defeating a Democrat-turned-Republican that Newt Gingrich’s Republican leadership supported — Paul has maintained a small circle of allies in Congress. Some of them, like Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.), are regular guests at the expert luncheons. But the most prominent new face is Bachmann, the rising conservative star who left C-SPAN and YouTube watchers scratching their heads with a constitutional grilling that seemed to puzzle Geithner. “What provision in the Constitution could you point to to give authority for the actions that have been taken by the Treasury since March of ‘08?” asked Bachmann during a hearing on March 24. “What in the Constitution could you point to to give authority to the Treasury’s extraordinary actions that have been taken?”

Bachmann “goes to these luncheons on a weekly basis,” said Debbee Keller, Bachmann’s press secretary. Keller noted that Bachmann was reading “Meltdown,” which argues that the New Deal failed and that the Federal Reserve is responsible for the current economic crisis. “Just as Austrian theory suggests,” wrote Woods, “the Fed’s mischief was responsible for the Great Depression.”

“I had a feeling she’d have some interest in the book,” said Woods, “because she asked some good questions. She was taking notes. She was asking if this or that point could be found in the book. I thought I recognized a sincere person who wanted knowledge, not the usual politician who couldn’t care less about what the truth is and just wanted to propagandize.”

Paul didn’t take credit for turning Bachmann on to Austrian theory (“He’ll give credit to everyone on the planet except himself,” laughed Woods) but said he was pleased to see more members of Congress delving into economics. “She’s very open to studying,” said Paul. “In fact, she’s been working really hard to get me back to Minneapolis. She says, ‘You’ll get such a great reception there!’”

Paul’s other influence has reached further across the aisle. Since he introduced the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009, he has locked in the support of a majority of the Republican conference as well as 13 Democrats, for a bill that would mandate an “audit of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Federal reserve banks” before the end of 2010 to reveal how the board makes it decisions and moves around money. “As Congressman Paul pointed [out] many times,” said freshman Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) after co-sponsoring the bill, “the Federal Reserve should have come clean with the American people a long time ago. The Fed is disbursing trillions of dollars and the taxpayers have a right to know who is getting it.”

It’s been a rapid rise for an idea that, only months ago, was located firmly in the political fringe. The John Birch Society, the far-right group that Paul has often defended from media criticism, was one of the first groups to encourage members to contact their members of Congress to support an audit of the Fed. Paul’s own coalition, the Campaign for Liberty, has engaged in a months-long grassroots campaign for the bill, something that Paul credited for a surge in support unlike anything he’s introduced in his second stint in Congress.

“People today are clamoring for transparency,” said Paul, “and there is more awareness of the Federal Reserve. I do think it has something to do with the focus we put on this during the campaign. It’s not so much that I’m personally converting people, it’s that we’ve got people at the grassroots converting their members of Congress.” Rep. Zach Wamp (R-Tenn.), a conservative who is running for governor of Tennessee next year, has told Paul that his support for the Fed audit and his condemnation of a Missouri law enforcement policy to watch out for cars with Ron Paul bumper stickers get some of his loudest, most positive reactions on the campaign trail.

Paul has remained surprised and bemused at his new influence. “I was talking with one of the other Republicans on the floor,” he remembered, “one of the types that had been voting with Bush, for big spending and all of that. I asked him: ‘Are you voting with me now or am I voting with you?’ They just laugh. They know what the situation is.”

If more members of congress and senate would relize that one day the blame would all be put on them I think they should all start to hear what the good DR has to say. If each one of them would read the constitution and then follow it. they would then start to repeal many of the unconstituional laws that have been passed over the last decade (patriot act, nafta, cafta) and so on the USA would start a fast healing process.

Rand Paul, son of Congressman Ron Paul, gauges support for Senate run in Bowling Green & Paducah!
 
Some politicians feel the need to travel to Washington, DC to ask permission to run for office or to obtain some regal blessing.  Rand Paul, this week, will travel to Teresa's Diner at 509 Gordon Ave Bowling Green to gauge support for a possible US Senate Run.  Dr. Paul will be there for breakfast at 7AM Thursday May 7th.
 
May 8th, Dr. Paul will go to Paducah to speak to supporters.  He will speak at the Gazebo (4PM) at 2nd and Broadway.
 
Wouldn't it be great if politicians spent more time getting the approval of Kentuckians, and less time being “anointed” in DC?
 
We'd love to see you there; some of us still believe in elections not coronations.

*Dr. Rand Paul is an eye surgeon from Bowing Green, and the son of former Presidential candidate Congressman Ron Paul.

*Dr. Rand Paul is the founder and chairman of Kentucky Taxpayers United.

Ron Paul may take some questionable positions, but he also willing to look deep into the corrupt pit of the empire and call out a lot of misleading and misrepresented information that has become coin of the realm. I'm generally progressive, and have absolutely no sympathy for the American right-wing, but Paul is something different. His positions on monetary policy and the military-industrial complex seem to me entirely reasonable, and at the least intriguing. Folks on the left who throw labels like “nut job” at him in knee-jerk fashion are acting like lemmings/sheeple.

The answer to 1984 is 1776, and Ron Paul gets that. It is time for the American shadow government of offshore banksters and their fellow travelers to fall, and the way to do it is through reinvigorating the Constitution. After we get rid of the Fed, let's move on to invoke Article 5, hold a Constitutional convention, and iron out a new reality-based money system that will not be open to manipulation by a global elite.

To the idiots who contemptuously disregard Ron Paul with your sneering, snarky, comments, start taking a look around you to see how we are losing our liberties, especially with the current flu hoax. This is all conditioning to get us ready for a militarized police state with 24 hour surveillance that London already “enjoys”.

Of course Republicans are latching on to the tea party crowd. It doesn't take a genius to see that this movement is gaining serious steam. And it doesn't take a genius to see that many of the core values are in line with the “supposed” core values of the Grand Old Party. Unfortunately, the GOP hasn't represented those values in a very long time.

And now that the GOP is at their lowest point in recent history, they think they can jump on the freedom bandwagon and act like they have been there all along.

Be careful what you wish for though… Republicans have a habit of showing up to the party 2 hours late and then trying to direct traffic. They'll ride Dr. Paul's coat tails through this downturn and then discard the base as soon as they gain power again. That is the Republican way. That is the rich old white man way.

Ron Paul still props up the Republican political machine. They tolerate him when he wanders because it makes no difference to the political outcome. He is a safe vote for most of the Republican positions. His district was made safer for a Republican as a sop to Paul by Tom Delay when Delay pushed through the 2nd-bite-at-the-apple Texas redistricting. Paul is as doctrinaire as they come promising the land of milk and honey if only we follow his simplistic nostrums.

Liberals understand economics absolutely perfectly; they realize that the more they control, regulate, bureaucratize and tax, the more power devolves to the govt. -run by the ruling elites – and away from the people.
A good example is Cuba – a country liberal progressives love.
King Castro and his ruling Princes totally control the economy. King Castro and his ruling elite get to keep ALL the proceeds that his pitifull economy generates – enough to keep him and his Princes living in wealth; and he tosses a few bones to his serfdom – just enough to keep them quiet.
In this manner, King Castro and his Royal Entourage can live like the Royalty of Medieval Europe, while his serfs toil away to support the Royal House of Castro.
It matters not at all that the Cuban economy is a joke; that is not the point. What matters is that it generates enough wealth to keep King Castro and his Royal Ruling Elite on top living the life of Riley.

This is the same exact system found in the former Soviet Union, Communist Eastern Europe, Mao's China, N.Korea, etc.

As for American liberals, well, the ruling progressive left wing elitist liberals – mostly all millionaires – seek to emulate to some extent Kiing Castro's Cuba. The easiest and best way to do this is to render life very difficult for the average citizen via bureacracy and onerous taxation. This will cause many Americans to be ever more reliant on govt.
This is exactly what the left progressive millionaire ruling elites want as it will consolidate their power and authority and enable them to garner even more wealth.

Here in the USA, California is the best example. The Calif. legislature, dominated by left wing elitist progressives have spent that state into bankruptcy. Their solution?? Spend more.
Are they not concerned that Calif. is bankrupt ?
Not at all.
Why?
Because the ruling left wing progressives there – many millionaires – will keep there jobs and benefits and perks and POWER no matter how far Calif. falls into the toilet.
Even if they get voted out of office, their millionaire left wing elitist progressives will give them high paying jobs with copius perks as, say, lobbyists.
Of course, the average citizen in Calif. will get screwed, but so what, as long as they keep paying those taxes, and the money winds up in the hands of the ruling left wing millionaire progressives, that is all that matters.

Liberals understand economics better than anyone, they know how to manipulate the flow of money better than anyone, and they are the best at achieving power and wealth at the expense of the average citizen.

Maybe with the exception of Castro, Kim Jong, the now dead Erich Honnecker, Mao, Stalin and Lenin.

Great article on RP.

The criticism's are much like the money created at the federal reserve; out of THIN AIR that is. Hot air at best one would say.

This current administration is comprised of nothing but ex bankers, goldman sachs, aig, and ex federal reservists. They stole 12.8 trillion from us and gave it to their friends with no oversight.

“Paul is as doctrinaire as they come promising the land of milk and honey if only we follow his simplistic nostrums.”

This is the usual nonsense I hear from Democrats and Republicans.

Our economic problems are so complex we'll need the bankers (read: Tim Geithner/Ben Bernanke) to solve them.

We must increase our troop presence in Afghanistan and bomb Pakistan to keep ourselves safe from terrorism.

These are just a couple of the Rube Goldberg strategies that have led directly to our decline, and which you appear to be promoting. The Constitution is based on a few simple ideas. Does that document qualify as a “simplistic nostrum?”

You know nothing of Ron Paul. You have not spent the time or the effort to truly analyze his policies. You are a collectivist one how thinks the good of the many out way the good of the individual. Your thoughts and feelings are good natured but the fact is your faith in an all encompassing welfare government will destroy the freedom of the individual and bring down our quality of life. This mindset breeds tyrants and dictators. When the government fears its people you have freedom, when people fear their government you have tyranny. There is no difference between Bush and Obama, they are pro war, pro spending and pro government. You are just a brain washed moron, watch you MSNBC, CNN. Just be that tool you are, and when the dollar collapses and the shit hits the fan then you will know that you are a kind hearted simpleton. You sir remind me Lennie from the movie “Of mice and men”.

For over two years now I've been telling the diehard Dems I work with that this country would tilt left and then swing back hard right, like the mast of a sailboat turning hard to port, by 2012. The movement will be influenced by Ron Paul and the Austrians, but led by someone yet unknown. Independents I know are intrigued by Paul, especially after September – the banking crisis had a far greater impact in political opinion than most understand – and it’s been easy to convert them to the basic tenants of the Austrian theory. I can’t wait for the fight. We will eat the GOP whole. The Dems are ill prepared for truly conservative, common sense argument and the onset of the SS crisis will be just peaking over the horizon in 2012.

Seems to me like Representative Gary L. Ackerman (D-NY) has some explaining to do.

Records – reported on http://www.r8ny.com, a New York City political Web site – show Ackerman (D-Jamaica Estates) accepted a “personal loan” last year for as much as $100,000 from Selig Zises, a large investor in a California-based company that Ackerman called Xenonics Options. However, Ackerman, who denies any improprieties, said the alleged loan was actually a sale of stock that he accidentally misreported.

“I no longer have it,” Ackerman said yesterday. “I sold it off a couple weeks back.”

On March 9, 2002, Ackerman, a senior member on the International Relations Committee, purchased between $1,001 to $15,000 of stock in Xenonics, which is today valued at between $100,000 and $250,000, according to financial records.

The 12th-term lawmaker said he decided to invest in Xenonics – a name he said he doesn't even know how to pronounce – after a suggestion from Zises, whom he described as a friend.

The U.S. Army awarded the company a $2.98 million contract a year later to manufacture night-vision equipment. Ackerman said he played no role in steering federal dollars to Xenonics.

Within two years of his initial investment, Ackerman's stake in Xenonics Options had ballooned to as much as $1 million.

Why Xenonics? The answer can probably be found in Ackerman's close ties to the Zises family, one of New York's uber-Likudniks. Since 1990, the Zises family Bernard, Seymour, Selig & Jay, contributed at least $30,000 of Unifund CCR Partner proceeds (a vicious collection agency that will sue 160,000 Americans for Credit Card Default this year) to Ackerman's campaign coffers.

How close are Ackerman and the Zises? Close enough apparently for Ackerman to have made a statement on the House floor last year in celebration of patriarch Bernard Zises's 90th birthday, and another upon the death of the Zises family matriarch, Ruth Zises . That's right: a statement on the House floor.

While I’m not out to diminish the works of Ludwig von Mises or Murray Rothbard, I do, however, think it appropriate to remember that one of our political genius founders by the name of Thomas Jefferson warned us of the criminal behavior and risks associated thereto with allowing a central bank to be established by the federal government when he said “The central bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the Principles and form of our Constitution. I am an Enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but Coin. If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their Property until their Children will wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.” I guess we had to live it to believe it. When one finally realizes that “fractional reserve banking” is simply a euphemism for “stealing property by counterfeiting,” hopefully, one will see the need not to stop at just auditing the fed.

What a wonderful surprise that Dr. Paul is finally getting the respect long overdue from fellow Republicans. The spending binge going on in Washington is truly amazing and we are all at peril. Our local congressperson is going to work in the administration and the sucessor to that seat gives conservatives a chance to push for a change in this area. People like Ron Paul offer encouragement that we become actively involved in a movement to replace all of our career representatives out of touch with reality.

Lincoln did the same thing… he said:

And rightly so…. he took control of currency away from the banks and he was coincidentially assassinated. John Kennedy did the same thing with Executive order 1110 and 5 months later he was assassinated and in both cases the VP coming in overturned those acts and returned control to the bankers.

They now pervade our government as do the Dual Israeli citizens who also pervade the banking system. I think its time to stop and follow the Constitution that forbids any foreign citizens from holding positions of authority and power. In other words….TAKE OUR NATION BACK AND END THE COUP.

I am 35 years old, a registered independent, but i have always supported the republican party. But for a while i became disinterested in politics, policy making just seemed so distant and disconnected from the people. I considered myself conservative so i just voted republican. Well, it was a couple of months after Obama won the presidency when i began to become agitated about politics and began to pay attention. I soon realized, with some research (on the internet, never mind the main stream media) that I was not upset with Obama in particular, or the democrats in particular, or even the republicans. How could I be, they are in fact the same party if you judge them by their results: more war, less liberty for the people, an economy controlled by a private monetary policy the we the people apparently do not have any right to be aware of. Anyway, I somehow stumbled across a you tube video of Ron Paul, and that day I became a new person. I could not believe that i had not been paying attention while Dr. Paul was running for Pres., How could I have failed so miserably when my country needed me so badly? Well, I will not let that happen ever again. I have woken and refuse to be put back to sleep, and Ron Paul was the man that cured my apathy. I can only hope that Ron Paul runs for president again. This time I will be ready. I am continuing to soak up the knowledge that Dr. Paul puts forth for anyone willing to listen to his message of freedom. sorry to bore everyone, just had to get my Ron Paul story out!

Yes, Bachmann has made some outright stupid comments, but she is a young politician (as politicians go), and there is room for her to learn. I can think of no better person for her to study American politics under than Dr. Paul. Perhaps under his tutelage she will become something better than what we have previously been shown.

It isn't just the GOP he's converting. I have to call you out that you forgot to mention the significant bipartisan support for this bill already. Perhaps it is best that we leave “parties” out of this issue to audit the fourth branch of the government. The fourth, and unchecked branch of government, The Federal Reserve Central Bank, shall never be Federal until proper auditial and congressional oversight is demanded; which is exactly what HR 1207, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009, requires.

Not only is Dr. Paul converting the GOP, he's converted about many of the people I know who voted for Obama. These people have no problem voting for Ron Paul in 2012 if Obama doesn't stop the military industrial complex in Iraq. It is clear why Ron Paul is correct; why it is utterly correct to support auditing, and better yet ending, the folly of an empirical and detrimental military industrial complex that bleeds and taxes the poor and rich alike for its continuation.

I did vote Ron Paul in the primary, so disappointed that he didn't make it to the election. Never mind, the people were not ready for him yet.
I hope we can accomplish the audit of the Fed, and more transparency on the bailout too. I want to know who got money and why. Why would the banks need the money? Why when they have whole herds of accountants and business managers would they go broke? It was because of unsound money practices while trying to rip off the American people and become wealthy. Now those same banks who got lots of money are charging 20% interest on credit cards instead of 15%.
I didn't get a bailout. I've never been able to even buy a house, much less lose one to poor money practices.
How could we elect a man for President who so disregards the Constitution of the United States, a man who would not even put his hand over his heart at the national anthem? Our media, run by the banks and big money, determine what we hear, therefore have sent bias news to the “sheeple” feeding them a bunch of crap about all is well with the change. We aren't free anymore, and if we don't wake up, we all will be in prison camps if Obama keeps up with forced volunteering, and robbing the middle class to support the unwilling to work class. The “change” has changed and now is nothing like was stated with the first “change”, which makes me think, what the next “change” will be….

As a Texan and as a true Conservative I have always shared about 99% of Ron Paul's views on the restoration of our Constitutional rights, a sound economic policy, a less intrusive federal government, and a belief that the Neo-con and the Christian right have completely hijacked the Republican party.
Republicans bottom line have been the biggest hypocrites over these last 25 years. I mean who are these bureaucrats to tell me how to live my life? That's where the Republicans have gone completely off base. They act like they want small government and less intrusiveness in citizens lives but then they have the gall to tell the citizens what they can or cannot do in their own homes/bedrooms, etc. Then they get a bunch of chickenhawk p***ies who want to intervene in every god-d**n situation across the globe. And these a-holes then have the b**ls to say that we are unpatriotic because we don't support some HOAX some BOOGYMAN? They have the right to tell us we are against our country because we hate with every bone in our body the enactment of the Patriot Act? Haha the Republicans need to stop listening to these idiots like Rush L., Ann Coulter, S. Hannity, G. Beck (FAKE NEOCON Conservatives) and start listening to Ron Paul, the most sensible common sense patriot in our Congress. Also I recommend to everyone to check out Aaron Russo' “from freedom to facism” video which is an excellent portrayal of what this country has become and is becoming due to our criminal syndicate Federal Reserve, our ILLEGAL income taxes, and basically the complete HIJACKING of our civil liberties.
Real conservatives and I mean REAL conservatives need to kick these jokers (Limbaugh, Colter, Jeb Bush, etc. OUT OF existence). Bottom line….Ron Paul is an inspiration and one of the true modern day patriots remaining in this country.

We would of never found the information about all the candidates without the Internet and our daughter We all now know understand how the political party forces their candidate upon the people to chose. We were sad that John McCain was the nominee, considering what we found out about him with the help of yes, the younger generation. We are mortified by the actions of the republican party and how they dictate what they want for the conservative people need. From now on, we will be supporting Ron Paul and anything that has to do with the republican party, we will be investigating and researching prior to making judgment.

And for my daughter and her boyfriend: Yes young pups can teach old dogs new tricks and the internet searching.

How much longer until the GOP realizes Ron Paul is their only chance to get out of this mess(which Mr. Paul warned them about during the debates)
He's got the integrity, the record, the intelligence, the know how, the transparency, the experience, the honesty, the money raising capabilites, a youthful energized informed following, who will work hard and be creative for his message. Who else in the GOP can say this for themselves?
Drown in your misery Republicans for marginalizing and mistreating the only man who looked out for you and warned you and as been speaking the hard truths for DECADES while you just chant and drool over empty and ignorant figures like Sarah Palin.

The reason Ron was excluded from the debates by the Republican Party last year was because he made them look like the fools they are with their Keynesian economic theories. I remember someone telling me they wouldn't vote for Ron during the primaries because “he couldn't win.” So they all voted for McCain (who could win?). Now we have an openly socialist government. They aren't even trying to hide it anymore and even Hannity is saying the “conspiracy nuts” were right all along. Yes, folks, there is a day of reckoning with all of this and it is now. Which way will you go America? The reason these Republicans, and a few Democrats are beginning to understand this is because they know the present system has fallen and can't get up. Thank you, Congressman Ron Paul, for your courage over the years.

When Ron Paul won the Nevada Straw poll, Anderson Cooper was live with coverage.

After almost two hours of coverage by Mr. Cooper, at the end, dont ya know Anderson NEVER even announced the winner!

Ron Paul is my congressman. I would trust him with my life and my checkbook.
If you ever want to put a candidate through a good litmus test, find out who their campaign attorneys are.
Hillary had Mark Penn, Obama had Pentagon lawyers…
Paul had constitutional professors such as Bruce Fine and others…The attorneys will tell you all you need to know.
Ron Paul is truth.

You have to understand – Ron Paul is not going to save the republican party. Both parties are a bunch of bunk and controlled by the very same people who control the federal reserve and the banksters – the illuminati. Ron Paul is only in the system so he can use it against itself. Ron Paul may just end up saving America (the country – not the United Stated of America, Inc.) and the rest of the world in the process.

Follow-the-money. Do you remember one of the primary lessons from the 1976 film All the President's Men? If you want to uncover corruption and find its source you simply “Follow-the-Money.” Mr. Paul is right on target with HR 1207. He knows that our economic system is corrupted with counterfeit money, so lets go straight to the source.

I have not come across a better analysis of the opportunity that Ron Paul now has for 2012 than that of Howard Katz. He writes:

“What has happened over the past half year is that the forces of statism in this country HAVE BLUNDERED BADLY AND GIVEN US A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY (pun intended). The New Deal was based on the ideology of robbing from the poor to give to the rich. Sad to say the concept of robbing did not immediately repel all Americans, and the Government was given the new function of redistributing the wealth (a fancy name for robbing).

But when George Bush and Henry Paulson devised a plan to bail out Goldman Sachs and others, they were not as sophisticated as F.D.R. F.D.R. intended to rob from the poor and give to the rich. He actually did rob from the poor and gave to the rich. But he convinced the nation that he was doing just the opposite. He robbed the rich via tax policy, let them escape most of this via loopholes and then gave them back a lot more via stock market (and other) profits caused by the Fed’s easy credit and paper money.

By comparison, Bush/Paulson openly admitted that they were robbing from the common man to give to a group of large banks and Wall Streeters. The important thing from our point of view is that THIS POLICY HAS NEVER BEEN TESTED AT THE POLLS.”

If you find this analysis of interest, then please see Howard Katz's complete Open Letter to Ron Paul:

For instance, Demo-cracy = “demoncrazy”, “demonstrate”= act without sane restraint & logic (as do the Demons of the Satanic spirit world), “democrat” = demonically erratic, etc. What is wrong with our leaders in this nation (both Republican, to the lesser, & Democrat, to the extreme!

I think the common point is that neither of us (Paul/Kerry) were at all embarrassed post-2004. And, perhaps, post-2008. What I don't see very many of anymore are Bush/Cheney bumper stickers.

And one more thing; might you be interested in the cause and cure of the Union State Sovereignty conflagration. I can tell you that any number of State resolutions won't cut the mustard. The problem was created by the Governors and they are the ones, and maybe the only ones, with the authority and means to correct the problem. I have a manuscript that covers the issue from a legal/technical point of view. A copy is yours for the asking. Cheers,

Michele Bachmann is trying to find a way to save her political seat and draw a chair at the big table. She has been using propaganda techniques to get air time and to build a following. Now, she is trying to add something to her political persona. She is smart enough to learn the all the lessons of the Palin experience. She is trying to become a real player in the GOP, which ever faction ends up being the GOP. I think there is no doubt that a woman will be on the GOP ticket in 2012. It just a matter of who is will be. Can you say Bush/Bachmann?

I will keep an open mind on Ron Paul's ideas, unitl I put more study into them at least. However, Michele Bachmann is just a political opportunist.

Unfortunately, the Constitution does NOT exist through all of this. Anybody who's ever called Ron Paul a 'nut' or a whack-job is too obtuse and desensitized by a brain-washing media and public school system. What I find extremely disconcerting is the massive outpouring of support for Ron Paul NOW that his run at the presidency is over. Where was all this support while the rest of us were out there from day ONE supporting him, hitting the campaign trail and holding public rallies? Question is….is it now too little too late? We are being bombarded DAILY with new draconian legislation, and as the populace seemingly becomes enraged, they are either unfairly categorized as domestic terrorists by the media pundits and their own government, or by the brainwashed masses as extremists because they lack the conginitive ability to wrap their miniscule brains around that fringe document known as the Constitution. Meanwhile, the Obamessiah and his corrupt administration of tax dodgers are flipping the bird to the masses as the continue to chip it away at what few liberties we still have left. Question is: what is the tipping point of the human psyche?

She wasn't calling for another HUAC. They aren't polar opposites, Bachmann is much tougher on social issues however. Hopefully with her studying under Ron Paul she can open up to freedom in all issues, at least at the federal level.

All of this should be common sense. I am no one special and I predicted both the dot-com crash (that was EXACTLY like the 1920's), and the property / bank / economic crash we are in now. I don't know all the answers but the government owning businesses scares me a lot. Our government was set up by the founding fathers to NEVER own private businesses. It is supposed to BE a self-sustaining “business” in the world economy with other nations. My father said the beginning of the end was the “temporary” federal income tax way back in the early 1900's. He was right. The federal government has been taking more and more ever since. The founding fathers decided on a small central government for many very good reasons. Two quotes: “A government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take everything.” ( I think that wasThomas Jefferson ), and “Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” (I was told that was Albert Einstein but it doesn't matter – it is true weather you like it or not and is a blueprint to run your personal life all the way up to how to run a government.) One last thing. In a conversation with someone they told me it was George W. Bush's fault for doing nothing and not having the proper regulations in place. I told him I felt Bush had to shoulder some of the blame, but a vast majority of the blame comes from personal responsibility. In my opinion he was simply saying it is OK to steal when no one is looking. I haven't heard anyone that has been held responsible for theft or obviously wrong business practices say they didn't know it was bad. I hear a lot of “everyone was doing it”, or “I had to do it to keep up.” Or they simply have no remorse – they are just upset they were caught. Madoff continued to steal while he was on “house arrest” – what the hell kind of judge lets this man go home? I'm sure he continues to steal from prison. There just isn't enough public shame for the callous and shabby treatment of the very workers who make ALL the successes of businesses possible at the expense of the greed and self-serving of the people in the positions of power. And you KNOW what I am talking about. If you don't, I can't believe you read this far!

I like and appreciate the article. I believe you've done a great job of expressing the critical mass of momentum that Congressman Paul has continued to leverage by awakening more and more Americans to the real issues we should be focused on if we want to create the changes needed in our country and government. On the other hand, once again the “libertarian” connection has been overstated by suggesting a long or lingering connection to that party. Dr. Paul took a short break from his Republican roots and foundation to run for president on the Libertarian ticket, but has served 10 full terms as a Republican Congressman.

Dr. Paul's well articulated, common sense ideas are the USA's last chance to save itself. We will either collectively wake up in time to salvage what's left of our Constitutional freedoms and the value of our dollar by taking back our country and monetary system or we'll likely break apart – just like the fall of Rome and the Soviet Empire. The only difference is that in today's world, the fall will be much faster as everything now happens in Internet time.

I'd vote for him in a heartbeat just to really shake up the current political system. Yes we need the Federal Reserve audited but not by any group or organization with ties to US Treasury or Wall Street or to the financiers that run it. An outside auditing agency from Asia or Japan might be more appropriate.

Ron Paul is the only honest man in Washington. Regardless if you don't agree with everything he says (and who does?), you have to respect his sincerity and his long record of refusing to play games. I'll vote for an honest man I don't agree with more than I would vote for a liar I do agree with. At least I know where Ron Paul stands.

Where were you other supporters during the GOP primary last year? I switched my voter registration to Republican just to throw my vote in for Dr. Paul. I'm back to independent now. To me there is no difference between the Democrats and Republicans anymore. They are at the exact same spot on the political spectrum and both full of BS.

Ron Paul is the only honest man in Washington. Regardless if you don't agree with everything he says (and who does?), you have to respect his sincerity and his long record of refusing to play games.

For years Mr. Paul has been repeating that the Fed must be abolished and people dismissed him with a grin. Now they are seeing what he saw long ago. He is not hype, or the cool president with the little black mans hop; but he is honest and a visionary.

I have not come across a better analysis of the opportunity that Ron Paul now has for 2012 than that of Howard Katz. He writes:

“What has happened over the past half year is that the forces of statism in this country HAVE BLUNDERED BADLY AND GIVEN US A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY (pun intended). The New Deal was based on the ideology of robbing from the poor to give to the rich. Sad to say the concept of robbing did not immediately repel all Americans, and the Government was given the new function of redistributing the wealth (a fancy name for robbing).

But when George Bush and Henry Paulson devised a plan to bail out Goldman Sachs and others, they were not as sophisticated as F.D.R. F.D.R. intended to rob from the poor and give to the rich. He actually did rob from the poor and gave to the rich. But he convinced the nation that he was doing just the opposite. He robbed the rich via tax policy, let them escape most of this via loopholes and then gave them back a lot more via stock market (and other) profits caused by the Fed’s easy credit and paper money.

By comparison, Bush/Paulson openly admitted that they were robbing from the common man to give to a group of large banks and Wall Streeters. The important thing from our point of view is that THIS POLICY HAS NEVER BEEN TESTED AT THE POLLS.”
