    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

10) Aliens will arrive, and humanity will unify to fight them off. We will first get them to finance the invasion and the rebellion, wiping out all debt. Then we will win several televised battles against a space traveling race with some EPIC acts of physical heroism (america fuck yeah)

11) But most importantly,we will defeat them with the cutural and economic genious of our Ivy League clergy. Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman shall be Obama's 5 star general. CNBC will cover the war 24x7.

What about the living standards of every small business in the country? anyone who isn't worth more than $20/ hour to their company would be fired immediately, you have no understanding of economics.

Sorry, folks, but this is the reason why I no longer waste any of my energies on political campaigns.  TPTB always get their politician: anything other than status quo need not apply.  "money = free speech" means that those with the money get to speak more.

True enough.  Judge Neopolitan (I like ice cream) is about as libertarian as you'll get on the tele-viewing-machine.

As for Dr. Paul, what I don't get is why the RNC doesn't run him as their tier 1 candidate!  He is of an age where he will never hold another public office, and therefore sacrificed without worrying about incumbency; he will begin to bring the system into line with its historic roots and mission; he will be at the helm when the major turds begin to hit the fan; and, he can be blamed for all this with impunity!   He's the perfect patsy.   On the other hand, such a blatant attempt to game the system could be seen through like a sheer nighty.   They could be running this current crop of losers to make Dr. Paul look like the genius that he actually is.  Oooh, those crafty Republicans!

Invalid Motivation - if you must watch CNBC's garbage propaganda to be "informed" about their predictable spins and lies, then watch it in snippets online.

Any zerohedger who watches CNBC supports their ratings and thus ad revenue generation and tax-evading, pseudo-bank, scumbag parent company GE and thus corporatism, elitism, and the fascist/corporatist and national-socialist US Empire, which exists solely for the elite - i.e. the upper few thousand people, who own nearly everything.

Extricate yourself. Passive peeping into the elite's circus macabre via their channels - is equal to culpability.

How many German's said after the nazi reign "we couldn't do anything" or "we didn't know" - well, today that question is irrelevant, because there are no excuses.

Why the Republican Party continues to enable the Democratic Media Establishments to control public debates is beyond reason. Hello Republican Party Chairman, we have the internet now and talk radio...we don't need televised debates controlled and steared by the opposition.

Talking about being awake, has everyone else noticed how when Paul speaks, the rest of the candidates take mental notes.  Watch a clip, Paul demands more attention and respect from the other candidates than anyone.  That right there tells you who is the leader of the group.  It is Ron Paul.

Exactly.  And this is why they will never allow Ron Paul the airtime he needs to spread his message.

TPTB have spent a long time and a fortune in resources to build the narrative that everyone buys - Republicans are pro-business and Democrats are pro-poor people.  In reality, both parties are simple tools of the same masters.  They are entities that exist to put on a show and convince people that they have some say in how the world works.

Ron Paul challenges all that, but he needs people to listen to him to get through years of partisan programming.  He will not be given that chance in the Republican primary.
