    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

If Paul would just fuck some whores and be pro-war he could win.

If there really was disenchantment with idiocy, Gringrich should get zero vote intentions in the polls and Bachmann should get a negative number.

The most beautiful moment of the last debate~

Rick Perry thanks Ron Paul for shedding light on the true nature of the private federal reserve and plugs Jim Rickards book, "currency wars".

If the establishment wasn't ready to cut bait on dim-wit Perry before, you just know that wonderful moment ended his campaign

fyi he doesn't say that..

anyway, this doesn't matter because voting in the current form is inherently inaccurate, if the goal is to make everyone as content as possible with the winner.  If there are 8 candidates, then every primary voter should be given 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8=36 points to distribute (or at least be able to rank all 8 candidates by ordered preference, such that the weightings are as I described).  Otherwise, how do we know that everyone who didn't vote for #1 or #2 would have preferred #2 over #1?  This better method of weighted multi-votes is much better, yet we never reform the current idiotic way of voting (idiotic if there are more than 2 candidates, at least).  F it.

WHY was this article on Ron Paul removed from the ZeroHedge home webpage?  I have NEVER seen this done before to any other piece here!  Something is VERY fishy!

EDIT: Now it is back again.  Very odd.

Heh.   Ron Paul bludgeons Rick Perry's taint while delivering his anchor baby spawn on the dirty blick floor of the Alamo... sweaty Perry adorned in a sombrero and serape, looks into the sun and realizes in horror that he's having his usual pre-debate nightmare. And so, in an unauthorized act of honesty, prostrates himself on live TV and kisses Ron Paul's gigantic old balls.

Rick Perry seems more stunted than I am able to fully give appreciation to. I'd need many degrees beyond anthropology and sociology (not that I have either one). Again the wooden, lurching, buzzard-like physical demeanor.

He's lucky to be in good stead with the local Neanderthals. The doe-eyed 1000-mile stare, The abject vapishness. I wouldn't let this creep deliver my paper.

I heard a Ron Paul interview tonight that was just awesome

The venerable Ron Paul IMHO is rock-solid here. Gives me gooseflesh. You can't bullshit gooseflesh.

I realize an existing ZH/AJ dichotomy. He's full of shit. He bloviates. He broke the MIAC report. Ron Paul seems to like him.

Anyway...link upon request.

i like ron paul too.  but that shit obama gave me goose flesh.  the proof is in the pudding; not the talk, the walk.  paul seems to have a much higher probability of at least trying to do what he claims because he has been saying it for decades while being both damned and ignored.

The ONLY other good thing Perry said was during the first debate when he stated he would leave the UN and eject it from our soil...


But I attribute those rare statments to be flukes as his operator hit the wrong button. All the uuuuhhhh, uhh, uuuuuhhhs is his brain stalling for commands from his handler. ;)

The problem with electing any president these days is that generally what that person said during campaigning has nothing to do with what they'll do while holding office.

So it all really boils down to who would actually break the least amount of campaign promises.

Elle Oh Elle.

If you do any amount of real research on Ron Paul, you will see that the problem you have proposed, in this particular case, is so minimal that it almost doesn't exist.



Here's a quick, easy list of Ron Paul's votes on legislation dating back to 1992.

don't kid yourself, ron paul's campaign has been perfectly choreographed.  after 30 years of experience, you can bet that he has thought all of this through very carefully.  his campaign will peak at the perfect time - ron is executing his plan brilliantly.  tell me one mistake that he has made.

i wouldn't be surprised if ron hasn't already planned his presidential campaign leading up to his victory against barry.

god help america if he doesn't win.

As much as I hate to, I'll say it... 

If RP wins the general election, he won't see inauguration.

If he doesn't see inauguration, we will have a civil war (or martial law).

Either way, the road to fixing the global ponzi system isn't going to be pretty.

That said, no true statesman has ever taken a position that didn't require courage and, for that, RP has my full support.  

Godspeed Ron Paul.

Under the circumstances, I'm afraid so. Rand Paul is actually the real deal, on all issues, but by then there probably won't be a country for him to run for the President of.

I surmise that you played hookey from bible school.

"Israelites" are the 12 jewish tribes of the Old Testament. Israelis are the citizens of a small political entity in the Middle East.

Ron Paul is to the Americanites what Jeremiah was to the Israelites.
