    If only he was truthful and honest with himself about the unintended consequences of his purely theoretical ideas of governance. It is not a good time to conduct experiments on our country.

    He predicted moderate Middle East governments would be overthrown by radical Muslims.

    Geez. He couldn't have gotten that one more wrong.

    You have it backwards, occupied. The theory of these past few decades have failed (We're all Keynesians Now..), because these generations of politicians have undermined everything that the revolution was fought for. Our wealth has been squanderd, our liberty has been surrendered for security against a tactic, and our productive manufacturing capacity has been destroyed.

    Ron Paul has been right since the day he stepped into Congress and has a record to back it up.

    Ron Paul is dangerous... to your empire.

    He says an "oil boycott will be imposed" and as evidence an article about an "oil embargo" is displayed. That is the opposite of what Paul envisioned. He was talking about the kind of oil boycott the Middle East imposed on us in the 70s over our support of Israel.

    So FAIL on that one, too.

    The first 60 seconds of the video are statements of the obvious, not predictions.

    At 2:20 he says an international dollar crisis will DRAMATICALLY BOOST inflation rates in the US.

    We actually had deflation and interest rates are at zero percent.


    Instead of overreaching and trying to a perfect score, the video should have been more honest.

    If you include Energy and Food into the CPI - our inflation is close to 9%. Granted the euro-zone crises has given some support to the US dollar, but you have to look at our treasury auction's who is buying them up - The Fed. We are on the eve of the dollar crises.

    Interest rates are going to come up, or the dollar will go. Its that simple. You cant print the kind of money we have and just leave it sitting in the market. Not unless you want huge inflation.
