    I gotta say, that second part where Paul talks about how a lot of "foreign aid" is really just a front for taking poor and middle-income American taxpayer dollars and funneling them into the profits of big US corporations by just exploiting people's desire to help the destitute in developing countries was veeeeeery interesting.

    Dr. Paul always nails it. He really is the only Politician even worth listening to at this point. And i'm still very surprised that so many haven't learned anything from Wikileaks. Governments lie to their People on a daily basis. Basically when their mouths are moving,they're lying. No one has yet to make a rational or logical argument for why we're currently bombing Libya. All I've heard is more lies. It's always nice listening to what Dr. Paul has to say on things. Thanks for your post.

    The government and the bureacrats in it only lie on days that end in y.


    When Ron Paul dies, the small shred of political honesty left dies with him.

    Government & Corporations are the same entity. How often and why do Facebook,Google,and GE Executives meet with this White House? These meetings have become routine. It's because they are intertwined and are the same entity. Government is the Corporations and Corporations are the Government. Most people don't even realize that they're being spied on daily by Corporations like Google,Twitter,& Facebook. They do the spying and then simply turn all information over to the Governmeet. It's a way the Government can say they're not spying on Citizens. And techinically they're not spying directly on Citizens but Corporations like Google,AT&T,Twitter,and Facebook are doing it for them. It's a very insidious relationship. Corporations are your Government and vice versa. It's very sad.

    Think about it. Why would GE,Google,Twitter,and Facebook Executives need to routinely meet with the White House? What's the purpose of all these meetings? I know it sounds like paranoia but sometimes i think Twitter & Facebook were actually created by our Government. They are invaluable information-gatherers for the Government. Most people don't even realize that when they sign up with these Corporations,they are giving them permission to share all of their information with others. All of their information can be shared with the Government anytime these Corporations decide to. There is no other reason for them to routinely meet with the White House. Who knows,maybe the Government did create Facebook & Twitter?
