RANT: The first item first column on Drudge says it all

The first item first column on Drudge says it all.

*** begin quote ***

MARCH 19, 2011

OBAMA: ‘Today we are part of a broad coalition. We are answering the calls of a threatened people. And we are acting in the interests of the United States and the world’…

MARCH 19, 2003

BUSH: ‘American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger’…

*** end quote ***

Donna Nobis Pacem!

Would anyone like to go back to the last Presidential campaign? I said here and vocally that the only truly “Peace” candidate was Ron Paul. Everyone told me that BHO44 was that “Peace” candidate.

“barbara streisand”

I told you so. And, it gives me no pleasure to say that. If I was smarter, I would have been more persuasive. But, when I say there is no difference between the R’s and the D’s, everyone tells me there’s a difference. Look at “today’s conservatives” and “today’s liberals”?

Where do we get the moral authority, let alone the Constitutional authority, to wage war on Libya?

IMHO from a moral, strategic, and tactical basis, this is an outrageous disaster.

So what are you going to do about it?

GOVEROUTRAGEOUS: Ron Paul 03/04 “The end of the war in Iraq is not near!”

Ron Paul 03/04: The end of the war in Iraq is not near!

# – # – #

It’s outrageous that the government would lie so blatantly. Obama ran as the “anti-war” candidate. That allowed him to slip in on Hillary’s left flank. THe American people outraged at the Republicans whisked him into office. Only to find, he IS that 100% liberal they were warned about, NOT REALLY anti-war at all, and a typical Chicago crook appointing all the same old same old crooks.

Outrageous!

POLITICAL: Where does the Ron Paul energy go?

Sunday, February 8, 2009

Where does the Ron Paul revolution (i.e., peace, nonintervention, economic freedom, personal liberty, sound money, and a drastically limited government) go?

The shell game of Republican and Democrat bigger gooferment prevents any other “choice”.

Argh!

MONEY: H.R. 2755: Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act

Sunday, December 7, 2008

http://www.lewrockwell.com/huff/huff24.html

*** begin quote ***

You might also ask your US Representative to co-sponsor the Bill to Abolish the Fed. So far Ron Paul’s Bill has no co-sponsor. What does that tell us?

*** end quote ***

[JR: That politicians are happy with the blank check that the current system provides them? ]

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h110-2755

*** begin quote ***

Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act – Abolishes the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and each Federal reserve bank.

Repeals the Federal Reserve Act.

This bill is in the first step in the legislative process. Introduced bills go first to committees that deliberate, investigate, and revise them before they go to general debate. The majority of bills never make it out of committee.

Arhhh!

POLITICAL: My economic recovery plan

Fallen Angel
by George Giles

*** begin quote ***

Our one party has two wings blue state socialists and red state fascists, they only disagree on minor conjectures like should we fleece the public fisc through the Federal Reserve, or the Internal Revenue service, or both?

*** and ***

If eternal vigilance is the price of liberty then Americans, as a culture, have been found wanting. The immense debt, the vanishing equity, and the struggling economic infrastructure are the waves upon which our ship of state sails.

*** end quote ***

Wonder if the sheeple will realize they have been had? If we have faith in the “American experiment”, then we can return to our roots of rugged individualism, cast out the socialists, and let the truly free market return us to prosperity. Enlightened individual self-interest is a powerful engine of prosperity. But, we have to be the “home of the free and land of the brave”.

(1) Let the bad actors in the marketplae fail. Citi, GM, NBC, or whomever has a problem; it’s just that. Their problem. Hard bitter medicine? Yes, but essential into correcting the “moral hazard” that our politicians have allowed to happen.

(2) Restore the “uptick rule” that prevents bear raids. FIre the genius at the Treasury, Fed, SEC that changed that one historical gem of an idea.

(3) Restore the marketplace in mortgages. Home ownership may not be for everyone. 20% down! Review every mortgage for criminal fraud. (Rumor hath it that Organized Crime went into the mortgage business.)

(4) End the “Drug Prohibition” policy. Sorry, but it’s nobody’s business what anyone puts in their own body. Pardon all non-violent drug offenders. Allow WalMart to battle the “illegal violent drug dealers”. (The cost of impure illicit drugs will dissolve overnight when Sam Walton’s children become “drug dealers”.) Clean safe drugs at everyday low prices will take all the profit and sexiness out of the drug culture. Hard to imagine a drug war over aspirin level prices. Pot, heroin, crack, and speed for $4 for a month’s supply? Maybe then as a society, we can focus on the medical problems that addicition represents. And, stop killing children both directly and indirectly. Eleimate all the drug agencies: DEA, FDA, and on and on. Consumers Reports, Underwriters Labratory, and “Drug Stores” like WalMart will do a far better job of keeping us safe.

(5) Downsize governemnt at all levels. Let’s conduct a raid on all these bloated kingdoms of waste. Let’s cut 5% per year. Every year.

(6) Let’s cut taxes. Business tax should be 0, but let’s start but cutting it to 10%. (Ireland is 11%!) We know that businesses don’t pay taxes; people do! Personal income tax ditto 10%. And, ONLY ONE ENTITY can collect our 10%. Either Federal, State, or Local gooferment. How they divide it up I care not, but no more than 10%. Property taxes should also be 0. Let the police, fire, and trash be supplied on a competitive basis.

(7) Let’s all MYOB. Marriage should be left to churches; not the gooferment.

How’s that for an economic recovery plan?

POLITICAL: Are elections important where there is no choice?

Monday, November 3, 2008

http://www.lifetrekcoaching.com/current/

PROVISION #589 (11/02/08): ELECTION ENERGY

>You’re also participating in that great movement called democracy. The opposite of democratic
>is not republican; the opposite of democratic is aristocratic. “Democratic” means rule of the
> people, the “demos” in Greek, while “aristocratic” means rule of the best, the “aristos”.

You have got to be kidding. This is a joke. Right? You can’t be serious. This is what the Founding Fathers feared most; the inflamed passions of the mob.

Sorry, given today’s education system, which is right out of the Socialist Horace Mann’s playbook, we have functionally illiterate people picking based on TV. I’ve got more respect for “Dancing with the Stars” election process than I do “the gooferment’s one”. (Have you seen the mechanics of voting?) Mann wanted an education system to create good factory workers and soldiers for the army. People who were easily lead by the elite.

See any elite in this election?

I sure do!

Sarah is the only wild card in the deck. And, at least she has some demonstrated executive ability. She is probably the most qualified of all of them. At least she hasn’t been in Washington DC at all.

No, this isn’t about an Athenian democracy. Or Plato’s “Republic”. This is about “manipulation”. Yes, you did see raw intelligent passion as folks came out for Ron Paul. There was a TRUE choice. A completely different path! Hopeless; throwing themselves against the entrenched elites of the Republican Party. Mao said “All power comes from the end of a gun”. He was dead on.

We have an American because some Dead Old White Guys stood up to the entrached power elite and said “hell, no!” and were willing to die for their liberty. We’ve seen from time to time that fighting spirit come out — the Second American Revolution aka the War of Norther Aggression aka the Civil War (there’s a misnomer).

The elite allows “elections” on the hope that the sheeple will carry on the illusion of “their government”. In fact, it is a fraud. Your friend was absolutely right there’s no difference between the two “parties”. In the election that you abhor the Supreme Court deciding, there was only two choices the Harvard guy with the blue tie and the Harvard guy with the red tie. They are so much alike I can even remember who wore what!

No, the whole thing is a farce! Except at the end of it, the gooferment kills. It kills with its diversion of our attention to REAL problems. To the real loss of liberty here at home and abroad. Eventually, the chickens do come home to roost.

At some point in time, the oppressed decide that they are tired of “the shit end of the stick”. They look at their lot in life and make a decision to say “enuf”! If we are lucky, it’s relatively peaceful like Ghandi, the Polish Soladarity, or the Russian Communism collapse. If we are not, it’s bloody like the French Revolution, Mao taking China Communicst, North Korea, Nazi Germany.

I fear we are merely traveling the road that ends in disaster. Election, or not. When you have Socialism, whether it be from a Democrat or a Republican, that takes an ever increasing percentage of wealth and earnings, while one’s accumulated wealth is inflated away, you have the focus point of revolution. At some point, even American’s will say “enuf”?

Can’t tell you at what point exactly that is. When the taxes so much, that survival is in doubt? When a life’s savings are stolen? When the insame gooferment diktats about drugs have half the people in prison? When the unemployment is 50%? When the dollar ceases to be the reserve currency and we have a Zimbabwe inflation? When Hispanics become the dominent race here in America? If Obama loses and half the people think the other half are racists? If McCain loses and half the people think the other half are Marxist Communist Socialists?

Eventually, all gooferments get around to killing their citizens. Like the JPFO says: “Frist comes disarmament; then genocide.” We will have a “vote” then. I pray it’s Ghandi-like. But, I’m not so sure of that. I do know that “cold dead hands” will decide the issue eventually. Not ballots.

Peace,
fjohn

GOLDBUG: The Federal Reserve allows Congress to borrow and spend!

Thursday, September 25, 2008

http://www.bobbrinker.com/

On Sunday, I heard a caller call into Bob Brinker and point out Ron Paul’s call for the end of the Federal Reserve. Bob went off the deep end on the fellow. The fellow’s point was that Ron Paul had been right on predicting the trouble coming with all these bail out issues.

Bob misstated Ron Paul’s remedy as “Abolish the Fed and return the control of money to the Congress.”

I agree that, if that was what Ron Paul advocated, it would be a terrible idea.

What Ron Paul did advocate was not that but:

http://www.lewrockwell.com/paul/paul53.html

*** begin quote ***

In fact, Congress’ constitutional mandate regarding monetary policy should only permit currency backed by stable commodities such as silver and gold to be used as legal tender. Therefore, abolishing the Federal Reserve and returning to a constitutional system will enable America to return to the type of monetary system envisioned by our nation’s founders: one where the value of money is consistent because it is tied to a commodity such as gold. Such a monetary system is the basis of a true free-market economy.

*** end quote ***

So, what Ron Paul advocated was a return to the Constitutional definition of money as gold.

But, no one follows the Constitution anymore.

Sigh!

Sorry, Bob, have to disagree with you on this one.

*** begin quote ***

I urge my colleagues to stand up for working Americans by putting an end to the manipulation of the money supply which erodes Americans’ standard of living, enlarges big government, and enriches well-connected elites, by cosponsoring my legislation to abolish the Federal Reserve.

*** end quote ***

The lack of any competition in the definition of “money” allows the “Sovereign” to adulterate the money supply without the bother of clipping coins, adding base metals to gold coins, or redefining the unit of account. Commodity money prevents the welfare / warfare state from writing itself a blank check. The politicians love the current system just fine. It’s the ordinary working stiff, pensioner, or other non-elite person who pays for their excess.

Wrong, Bob!

Repeal the legal tender laws and watch the free market take off as politicians have to justify the tax burden. It would be the end of their Ponzi schemes. Want to pass a perscription drug benefit, great! Where’s the money for it? Want to wage war in foreign lands, fine! Where’s the money for it?

You want accountability in Congress? Take away their “blank checkbook” given to them by the Federal Reserve!

RONPAUL: Excluded from FoxNews, he does his own thing~

Wednesday, January 9, 2008

Ron Paul Town Hall, pt. 1

FoxNews excludes, bit you decide. Ron Paul had his own event. It’s two half hour YouTubes of a Jeffersonian liberal. Remember that the tradition of a liberal is that the individual is sovereign. Not the King; not the gooferment; not the collective. I haven’t heard anyone express these ideas in a long time. We need to get back to the roots of the republic.

On December 16th, 1773, American colonists dumped tea into the Boston Harbor to protest an oppressive tax. This December 16th, American citizens will dump millions of dollars into the Ron Paul presidential campaign to protest the oppressive and unconstitutional inflation tax.
