    MinnPost - Ron Paul saw this financial mess coming



    Yeah, what a kook. :rolleyes:

    He predicted this mess, and yet, was outcasted and marginalized. Now, we have two clueless idiots who are pretending to have the answers, when all the while, they ignored what was painfully obvious to those who actually had economic knowledge.

    We had such better choices this year.

    So did I.

    So did thousands of people.

    What?

    Ya'll think Ron Paul was the first American to get the scam of the Federal reserve or something?

    He got that right enough, but as to his insight?

    Old news, folks, very very old news.








    It's

    That YOU, or thousands of "others", saw it coming really doesn't mean much when viewed as a political issue. You and them aren't running for a major party's nomination. He was. He was the only one running that understood the root of our financial problem.

    The one who actually spoke about what NOT to do, rather than what else we should intervene in. The man had SOLUTIONS. And that was why the media marginalized him.

    You're telling me you'd rather have one of these two knuckleheads instead of a man of actual economic wisdom? I mean, it's not like he would have been able to cut many of the cabinet dept's he advocated cutting. He as CinC would have been able to do JUST ENOUGH without congressional approval to ACTUALLY fix some things. His Working Group on Financial Markets would have been staffed with REAL economists who understand the problems of today's monetary policy. There wouldn't have been this insane manipulation of markets, and there CERTAINLY wouldn't be a Treasury Secretary as wacked out as Hank Paulson is. That guy's got some serious screws loose.

    Whatever though. Like I said, we had MUCH better choices than what we chose as a nation. But then, what's new?

    These two clowns running wouldn't know the meaning of simple economics and how to apply the constitution to our current financial mess to rid us of our problems if it hit them in the ass. I'm beyond sick of this defunct govt.

    Either one of the two main candidates advocate bailing out idiotic failing companies and passing the massive debt burden along to the next generation, who had NOTHING to do with the mess we're in, and had no say in how it should be handled. Our kids are going to inherit TRILLIONS of dollars of debt and deficits, because their parents didn't want to face the consequences of their own stupidity.

    That ALONE loses them my vote.

    As everybody can see, this proves that you do not have a clue about that which you are posting. There is no debt if we dismiss it.

    Ron Paul is an insane bantering fool that nobody takes seriously. He wants to put the US on the Gold Standard when there is not enough Gold in the world to back the US Dollar. The US dollar is backed by our productivity. We are the leading manufacturing country in the world.
