Ron Paul calling the kettle black in 1988. None understands the economy like him, none else has a plan to fix the economy, and none else is willing to stand up to the corrupt failed establishment.

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlePt7wKTJ0&feature=player_embedded]Ron Paul 1988 prophetically warning us of the banking crisis! - YouTube[/ame]

Tomorow night on the Google debate Ron Paul will once agian show himself as more educated, more read, and more conservative then any other candidate.

Its time to join the revolution.

I would hardly say Ron Paul is an expert on the economy. Though he knows quite a bit

Certainly sounds like a better idea than Electing someone with 0 experience at all.

I was told in here by liberals and Democrats that elected officials do not need to know anything about the economy.

They don't actually. If they appoint advisers that do know something about the Economy and then are not to arrogant to follow their advice.

Ron Paul knows a lot about the economy. Unfortunately none of it is true.

How long are the Wookie-Suiters going to continue to push this decrepit crazy old man?

And you have to ask why he didn't listen to his own Comission (Bowles-Simpson)?

I don't know what Geithner knows, but you're right. It sure isnt the economy.

I dont consider his stance isolationist. It doesnt matter though, we cant afford it, havent ben able to afford it, for a long time.

The entire system has proven itself unsustainable. It has failed, and it is toppling. Demand will never return without huge changes in both policy and culture. A nation cannot just continue to print money out of thin air and not expect economic collapse. We have been printing money out of thin air for 15 years.

The question that is still in the air is, are we going to have strong national leadership lead the way through this, or are we just gonna continue to fuel our socialist fantasy's untill its just not worth it to go to work anymore.

They should have at least held a real fucking job.

I would also count experience with growing a business, meeting a budget, organizing and executing a successful game plan, managing a work force, and meeting a payroll as big plusses. A misstep or failure along the way that was corrected and overcome would also be a positive for me.

I also want a leader who has a good grasp on how the Constitution was written and why, a good sense of American history with an eye to learn from it, and ability to articulate and explain a rationale for policy that will stand up under scrutiny, and the ability to reassure and inspire.

Somebody who isn't in it for the personal glory and who is able to recruit excellent people to serve with him would be the finishing touches on a superb cake.

Our current Fearless Leader can't claim any of that on his resume.

I'd like someone who is honest.
