    Congressman and 2012 GOP Presidential candidate Ron Paul issued the following statement today regarding the latest budget proposal by the House Republican leadership. See comments below.

    “Today, the House Republican leadership released a budget meant to be an alternative to President Obama's budget plan, which was filled with more debt, more deficits, and more taxing and spending. Unfortunately, the House Republican proposal doesn't go far enough to address the extreme fiscal problems we face as a nation.

    “The House GOP’s budget proposal does not balance the budget until the year 2040, and it adds billions to our already exploding deficits. In fact, this budget doesn't actually 'cut' any spending. It only reduces assumed increases in spending - essentially playing the same game the Washington establishment has played for years with our hard-earned money.

    “As Sen. Jim DeMint recently noted: “This idea that we have to look 30 years out to balance the budget is not only unnecessary, but it’s improbable. We cannot continue to spend at our current rate for 10 more years, much less 20 or 30 more years.”

    “What is really disappointing is that the GOP budget assumes that the federal government should continue to do everything, or at least almost everything, it is currently doing. We will never have a balanced federal budget, low taxes, economic prosperity, and individual liberty unless Congress stops trying to run the world, run the economy, and run our lives.

    “If Republicans really want to win in November, they will have to draw a clear distinction between themselves and Obama's disastrous agenda. And producing a budget that does not seriously address our nation's debt crisis will not distinguish them at all in the eyes of the American people."

    I was afraid of that. Serious, I'm out come 2013 if this country doesn't get in the now. This is not sustainable and I have no plan to sit like a waiting duckling for the big rig of economic calamity to come run me over.

    This thread is 8-9 minutes old and given the old status. Two people looked at it. Apparently people do not think Paul knows his shit on economics. Oh well....

    Ron Paul is despised by Big Government Globalists. And they thoroughly control both Political Parties. He's a man without a Country. And unfortunately, Millions of other Americans are beginning to feel the same way. The Socialists/Progressives and Neocons sure have done a number on our Country. It's very sad & tragic.

    Self-sufficiency is going to be a BIG advantage here shortly. A couple acres far enough away from the city, well water and a large root cellar will get me through it, I hope...

    I'm not playing those odds, Guy. I'm OUT by 2013 no matter what financial shape Im in to do it. It's over here, and Im not going to find out just what that is going to mean to 300+ million dunce cap wearers sitting on their hands staring at the TV like a deer in headlights.

    Once again, Dr Paul hits the nail on the head. We're not cutting anything with this budget proposal yet we hear screams of gutting government and that grandma is going to be in the streets eating dog food. When did we become land of the entitled, home of the sheep???
