I have posted this before. But I think it is great. Here is a 20 second follow up.
Ron Paul has some good ideas, he does make sense when he talks.
There is a difference between floor traders and people who make decisions. The Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Bushes, etc. who have control of the financial system do not support ron paul, because if they did bernanke wouldn't have a job. The lackeys who work for the corporate raiders and big bank families probably are in Paul's corner, just like a bank teller might be, or any other person who punches a clock for a pay check. But this is definitely not the "financial community" any more than a page or intern is the "federal government."
Thanks for the reply. I like Paul a lot (as you can tell). He actually has a couple more videos where he grills Helicopter Ben.
Good point and I agree, if I could change the title I would. How about: The serfs, peasants, people who HAVE TO pay income taxes and are paid in US dollars could / should Ron Paul.
Billionaire Jim Rogers supports Ron Paul:
yes indeed, there are some who would favor a paul-like approach, I'm sure Buffett would also be in his corner. Not too many others though, I'm afraid.
I think credit laws should be written in a constitution or something that requires 75% of the population to approve for it to be repealled.
I like Ron Paul as well, but I'm not absolutely sure he really understands what is going on. I was listening to him tonight talk about Big Government and all the red tape involved in FEMA etc. He is missing the big picture, FEMA, HOMELAND SECURITY, etc etc is just a shell game for FOR-PROFIT companies. BUSH and his Good OL BOYS have all ready gutted Big Government and just Sub-contracted everything to for-profit companies- many of which they own :)
In other words, Neocons motto is: Why have government workers or Non-Profit Orgs. doing jobs or supplying services that could be subcontracted to Halliburton etc. Basically use taxpayer money to make huge profits off disasters such as New Orleans. Replace most of the military with subcontractors, next up police officers and firemen.
Ron Paul doesn't understand this or maybe he does and just doesnt want to scare the beeejerbersz out of people.
Guess what? He's not getting elected!!
Move on with your lives...
The market is / will punish these banks. Most people are going to take money out of "shady" banks. Seriously, would you leave deposits in CFC or any bank that has lost 50% of it's stock price. Even MER had to take out a huge Newspaper adds showing it had Trillions in capitial. Any laws written would just likely punish the citizens and bring more light on to a problem most banks want to go away.
You are very right about the non-profits filling Gov jobs. Who gives more kick backs to GOP politicians private firms (HAL?) or FED employees.
I think you are underestimating Dr Paul. I think Ron Paul understands and has spoken on what this about much better then anyone.
Dr Paul speaking on de funding the War:
Some thought it was over when Ob-won was killed by Darth Vader, some continued to fight on.
FYI - Howard Stern on Ron Paul:
It doesn't matter if Ron Paul doesn't get elected. Voting for him shows that there are people that are willing throw away their vote to make a statement. A 10%-15% showing in the Republican Party is enough to move the party platform. That's the reason Ron Paul is running.
If we really want low persistent interest rates, then we need to drive down the budget and eliminate the deficit. Over time we can eliminate the debt, lower taxes, and drive down interest rates permanently. Reduce discretionary government spending and reduce entitlements.
Why do we use company's like Halliburton? Because we decided to trash the budget by reducing personnel we needed in the 1990's as part of the peace dividend. Then we would bump up personnel with contractors when we needed them. That business wasn't even a great business for Halliburton, where it tied up money for Iraq when it could have been busy ramping up drilling capacity instead. Yes, it's stupid, but don't blame Bush for a policy that has been implemented in 1992 and expanded throughout the 90's.
