Ron Paul: "The Country Is Bankrupt... The People Are Being Bamboozled"

Tyler Durden's picture


"The American people are being bamboozled into believing that you have to keep spending for ever," Ron Paul exclaims, as "neither side is truly looking for spending cuts." As he explains they all know that increasing spending is all that can maintain the status quo. In this brief CNBC clip, Paul says playing the blame game is ignorant of the reality that both sides are "rigid with bad ideas," dismissing Obama's 'faction' comments. For a glimpse at the chaos underlying the status quo (that is being exposed this week), Paul blasts that "it is a philosophy of government that is to blame; Keynesianism, Militarism, and Interventionism, and the funny-money system that we use. All that has come together and the country is bankrupt and nobody wants to amid it."

"Why in the world can't the people have an option to opt-out?" is the middle ground possibility that Paul suggests...


"While more are waking up to it (especially in light of the non-essential services furloughs currently), there is still an appetite for big government - people are afraid to give up on it."


The Democrats are just as "rigid" as the Republicans.. "They are rigid with bad ideas too in that "deficits don't matter, the government has to spend, and the government has to take care of us, and you should print money when you need it."


Paul goes on to discuss Gold "all central banks work together - they collude"


... Moral convictions, "right or wrong", and "the only thing that really counts is what the American people believe the role of government should be... and if deficits don't matter, it will not be a shutdown of government but a breakdown of government that occurs"

Posted on other link, would appreciate any feedback if anyone agrees or disagrees this is the endgame if we keep piling it up.


It sure feels like the beginning of a new era in DC, seeing as we all know everybodys cards.  There is a new group in town who stand on principle, who won't back down and won't be bought off with favors, and all the rest of the usual prostitutes who it is simply a matter of haggling over their price.  Get your popcorn ready.  The default is simply a matter of timing anyway, who in their right mind thinks all that is getting paid back.  It has not trickled down to mainstreet anyway, it is all a matter of will we keep shoving our debt in Wall Streets feeding trough.  When you are broke, it is awfully hard to get any brokerer.  The same cannot be said for our overlords.


Here we are, right back where we started with Thomas Jefferson (sought a republic) and Alexander Hamilton (sought a monarchy with private central bank).  This is why the NY times writes pieces like this:

Demonizing Thomas Jefferson

and Talking up Alexander Hamilton

Alexander Hamilton worked hard for the banks.  This argument is brought to the forefront yet again, only growing out of it is now impossible.

And here is the 'Chicago Plan' from the IMF to do the worlds largest debt for equity swap once the pile of debt gets big enough.  And low and behold the senator from Chicago is doing his damndest to build that pile of debt.  The gist is this, we are selling our sovereignty off to the banks, who at the appropriate time will offer the worlds biggest debt for equity swap, where we trade our soverignty, our roads, our national lands, in trade for our debt.  And then it will be complete, just as the forefathers warned we will wind up homeless and penniless (eventually) on the ground our men died to preserve for us.   Wake up people!

Hamilton was a British spy and was given his due. He is the reason why we have fiat currency today. Not because of the First central bank he ushered in, but because he fixed the gold to silver ratio against free market forces. Gresham's Law caused silver to be hoarded as the undervalued currency, and its gradual removal from circulation undermined the bi-metal standard put forth by the founding fathers. A century later it was a simple swap out of gold for fiat since the competing currency of silver was not in the fray to keep things honest.

Ron Paul is a smart man. He likes gold. He says all the right things. I'm sure all his mason brothers are proud of his mastery of controlled opposition, just as they were proud of Washington for allowing Hamilton to usurp control of the money.

This virtuous man has been a magnet for those who want to save the Republic.

It remains a mystery why he pulled out of the GOP race at a point when he was gaining critical mass on college campuses essentially owning the youth vote - and then not running as an independent.  Wonder what was used to coerce him to leave the race leaving so many of his supporters (including me) in stunned disbelief.  This story has yet to be told.

This is a Mind Blowing amount of "Gold".


2 Million Ounces = 62.206 Metric Tons of Gold


3 Million Ounces = 93.309 Metric Tons.


While just 1/5th as bad as April 12, 2013 (500 Metric Tons) whomever dumped this amount had no cares about price, did they?


THe good news is that Gold recovered its losses. But they are vainly attempting to demonstrate that they still are in control. However this just serves to demonsrate that they have lost control.


I think that the Gold Bugs are winning the Game.

I suport the central bankers, they do an exelent job on maintaining global stability while rewarding productive nations over non productive nations. Without central bankers, your worth would be determined by rulers and politicians...and your lives would be only to serve them (the rulers). At least with central bankers, you labor serves the people of the world and its valued accordingly.

Is it perfect? No, you get corupt politicans, corporations, bankers, who missuse their power to rob the poeple.

The truth is that there isnt much wrong with the systems in place, they are not perfect but they are generaling improving.

What is wrong is that most people are cowards, weak, lazy, ungreatful, dishonest and many other things. Societies tend to move to more corupt as no major desastors happen and than when a global desastor happen, everyone becomes more honerable.

Worth (aka value) is determined by whatever the collective human conscious (aka the market) deems it to be. Value does not exist outside the human mind. Historically that has been assets like cows, land, family name, and of course gold and silver, but of course people are easily suckered into believing IOUs are sufficient. Rulers and central bankers alike would love to turn lead into gold, or conjure it from thin air, but they can't, and thus they must turn to rigging markets. Without such there would be no ability to coerce value beyond the ability to manipulate perceptions which is what central banks do best.

If they could conjure gold out of thin air, it too would lose its value.

Tall Tom's picture

So why does the Paper Gold market still have "value"? Do you reall think that 62 Metric Tons to 93 Metric Tons of Gold were really sold, all at once, on Tuesday?


That caused a helluva takedown in price, didn't it? Of course there is a marked difference between PRICE and VALUE. Unfortunately the sale of Gold created out of thin air still affected the price.


No Physical Gold may suffer price declines as a result of such creation. But Gold will not lose its value.


However a day is approaching when the Comex will DEFAULT on Delivery. Then the charade will end. That day approaches quicker than many might consider. And when it arrives there will not be any Physical Gold available for sale at any price.


I will continue to prepare accordingly and suggest that everyone do likewise.

"I suport the central bankers, they do an exelent job on maintaining global stability while rewarding productive nations over non productive nations."

MDB? Got a new handle these days? Stability does NOT mean regular monetary devaluation. Try again, Sparky.

"Without central bankers, your worth would be determined by rulers and politicians...and your lives would be only to serve them (the rulers). At least with central bankers, you labor serves the people of the world and its valued accordingly."

Our worth is already determined by rulers and politicians; these fucktards created central banks in order to enact command economies. Even bigger fucktards defend them...

"The truth is that there isnt much wrong with the systems in place, they are not perfect but they are generaling improving."

Gee, a little government shutdown and even the NSA bots start fucking up grammatically!

They have not averted anything, they kept the unsustainable status quo.

IF things unfold slowly then the only outcome seen in history is to print all becomes soooo painful that even the sensible ones give in to prevent deflation.

BUT...if it all just goes pop, then we could experience 'Hyperinflation In a Flash'. This would yield the same result as HI (destruction of the currency) but we could skip the wheelbarrows and go straight to the new currency.

Gold, instead of going to a gabillion dollars an ounce would be reset to a price to make the CB balance sheets work.

Obama was a 'construct' - a marketing plan designed to siphon off the truly disaffected and pissed off votes from any truly progressive candidate who might have DONE something  - all those rightfully appalled by Bush.   I think they really expected Hillary to get the Democratic nomination in '04 - she's a 'safe' part of the status quo.  But they underestimated the anger - so we got Obama.  Turned out to be a 'win-win' for TPTB.   A black 'Liberal' (no way in hell) Democratic Pres could do things that would incite rioting if they came from a Republican Pres.  Faceit - we got Bush III with only a few 'dstractions' like 'ObamaCare' - a gift to the Insurance Companies.  NO Investigations into financial crimes, no prosecutions for war crimes, no roll-back of expanded Executive Branch powers, no adherence to the Constitution - simply more shredding of it......

Look at Obama'as mother and her family... eerie ties to the CIA.

That is easy. They use thier home built Rocket Propelled Grenade Launcher.


Rocket Propellant is easy to manufacture. You can use SUGAR and KNO3. You can get the KNO3 at Home Depot. It is "Grant's Stump Remover" A 65% to 35% proportion by weight and carmelize it over an ELECTRIC STOVE. Open Flame and you're going to be burned badly.


As for the Explosive...Well KNO3, Sulfur and Charcoal with some Human Urine as a binder does that trick,


Shrapnel can be purchased at any Wal Mart. BBs at High Velocities are quite deadly. All can be encased with PAPER. Yes a Cellulose Encased Rocket.


Now as for construction you need to make certaian that the Center of Gravity is One Half Caliber ahead of the Center of Pressure.


All instructions are on YouTube if you care to look them up.


So...Who needs a gun? An RPG just gives you a much better range with a more devastating impact.

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we have been taken. - Carl Sagan

If you have lived in a country where the interest rate was 300% per year due to paper currency collapse, and after that had come to US, you would have understood the problem. But certainly, this is totally lost to you.

And no worries, it will come sooner than you think.

Oh,I almost forgot ... good luck at that time, for you and everyone else will need it, although the luck will be in a short supply at that time.

Okay, where's the money hiding, jackass?  The US borrows 40 cents of each dollar that it spends.  They borrow it by selling Treasuries, whose only buyer at the moment is the Fed.  The standard investor and the foreign investor have bailed out on propping up this charade.  So nobody is willing to lend the US money except a private corporation.

The people don't have the money to pay more taxes.  85% of 'Muricans have credit card debt.  47% of 'Muricans get some sort of entitlement.  Food prices have doubled since the start of the depression.  Gas prices have been above $3/gal. for more than 1000 days.  The common man can't afford to pay more taxes.

Well, Cosmic says, let's tax the rich, then!  How do we do this?  They have more tax shelters than the DHS has bullets.  They offshore their money and defer taxes and set up trusts.  Even if you somehow managed to pry all the money from all the rich, it wouldn't even last the US gubmint spendthirfts three months. 

In short, there is no money to pay the bills, dickwad.  We ARE bankrupt.  The only reason we haven't defaulted yet is the Fed.

Great rant and I up arrowed you, but think you need to add one thing. 

Nobody is willing to lend the US money "at the artificially low 2% rates, maintained to keep them so low as to not cause the interest paid to consume all revenues collected, but by doing so has killed the Amercan saver and grossly mis-alocated capital".

And just whom do you suppose has that kind of money? The wealthy? Do you really believe that they have that type of Wealth? That is so damned shallow. There is much more Debt than Assets in the USA.


So you will retort, "Well someone got the Money". Yes someone did get the Money. While some of it went to Americans there happens to be $12 Trillion CASH (PHYSICAL CASH) sitting in the Vaults of FOREIGN CENTRAL BANKS. When they lose CONFIDENCE that $12 Trillion in CASH will come back to the United States in a Tsunami. It will seek to buy EVERYTHING that is not bolted down.


And instead of the citizen in the USA going for the Currency stuffed under the mattress (WHICH THEY DO NOT HAVE) it will be those Foreign Reserves that will be the spark of the Hyperinflationary Inferno that is set to wreak havoc on this once great Nation.

The problem is that even if we decide to put the US country and its people ahead of banking and internationalist interests and fix things, we will go through a lot of hardship before the problems can be fixed. IMO, things have gotten so much worse than they were in 2008.

Fair value of gold at the current buying power of the dollar is somewhere between $650 and $850/oz. IMO, that is where it will go if they decide to crater the financial markets.

Obumblepuke pushed through a B/S 2500 page trojan horse healthcare bill written by the insurance companies. IT DOES NOT SERVE THE NEEDS OF THE COUNTRY... fraud is fraud.

Given that there is virtually no chance the debt will ever be repaid,and that eventually the diminishing purchasing power of $fiat will be obvious to most,your suggestion seems a likely option.

Further to that, Fabian Socialism,ie. slowly,small step by small step,has always had total control,as it's ultimate goal.

A relevant question is: Control by whom?

Given the context of this site,and the 100 years of the federal reserve system,this IMF report seems a major clue.
