Here Is Which GOP Candidate According To Bloomberg Readers Understands The Economy Best

Tyler Durden's picture

Is anyone surprised?

And since the biggest challenge facing the ponzi scheme that is the United States is purely economic, does this country not deserve a president who actually does not need an abacus when doing simple addition?

Ron Paul makes sense.

Ron Paul is the only one that has any economic sense.

Cain, IMHO, lost nomination last night when he named Alan Greenspan as best Fed Governor.  Perhaps he is correct if he meant Greenspan was the Best Fed Governor FOR THE Fed and it's owner banks.  Certainly he was not the best Fed Governor for Americans or the United States of America's economy.

I doubt many sheep understand that Greenspan was the chief architect of this mess.

SheepDog-One's picture

No Greenspan wasnt 'the chief architect of this mess' its was set up before Greenspans parents were born!

Greenspan was born in 1926 (13 years after inception of Federal Reserve, and 16 years after Jekyll-Island meeting), so his parents gad been born already.

The Fed was just a new government cluster fuck to solve previous government induced monetary cluster fucks...and so on, and so on.

The private banking control of the US money supply had been in the works long before the Fed came to be.

Breaking news: Herman Cain releases the name of his "secret" nominee for the Federal Reserve head.  Papa Gino.

and his Treasury Secretary, Chuck E. Cheese, and Secretary of State, Papa John.


Seriously, Cain is just a bankster shill candidate, they should have just put up Jamie Dimon instead.

Except Jamie Dimon isn't black. hahaha

"Papa Gino's office, no I'm sorry Papa isn't in." "Would you like to talk to his assistant, Fat Tony?"

He really did step in a steaming pile of dog shit when he said that. RP's response was perfect. Without a pause, he said "Alan Greenspan was a disaster." I think that got the most cheers (and laughs) from any comment all night. I would put that exchange into a commercial and beat Cain over the head with it, if he starts getting traction in the race. By now, even Joe 12-pack and the 401k Brigade know Greenspan is one of the folks that is responsible for bringing the USA to its knees.

Don't vote until you read these shocking facts about Ron Paul:

1. Ron Paul has mentioned numerous times that he would like to ABOLISH the Federal Reserve bank of the united states. According to top Ivy League economics professors this could cause economic chaos throughout the global economy.

2. Ron Paul has made no secret of his desire to completely end the war on terror. This will put Americans at serious risk of acts of terrorism by Islamic Extremists, at a time when our freedom is despised and envied throughout the middle east.

3. Ron Paul has expressed his desire to end the civil rights act and legalize slavery at the state level.

Mr Paul has marketed himself as a revolutionary and a voice for the younger generation, but the truth is he is just another arrogant libertarian whose views have gone unchallenged for far too long, and its time someone had the courage to speak the truth about his policies.

The following article sums up his beliefs nicely.

Thankfully some news outlets are not intimidated by libertarian bullies, and are willing to tell the truth. OBAMA/BERNANKE 2012 - Vote for real freedom and liberty!

MDB, I don't know how you keep it up, particularly with a straight face.


Irony, its a fine art.


Irony From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Irony (from the Ancient Greek ???????? eir?neía, meaning dissimulation or feigned ignorance)[1] is a rhetorical device, literary technique, or situation in which there is a sharp incongruity or discordance that goes beyond the simple and evident intention of words or actions.

Ironic statements (verbal irony) typically imply a meaning in opposition to their literal meaning. A situation is often said to be ironic (situational irony) if the actions taken have an effect exactly opposite from what was intended. The discordance of verbal irony may be deliberately created as a means of communication (as in art or rhetoric). Descriptions or depictions of situational ironies, whether in fiction or in non-fiction, serve a communicative function of sharpening or highlighting certain discordant features of reality. Verbal and situational irony are often used for emphasis in the assertion of a truth. The ironic form of simile, used in sarcasm, and some forms of litotes emphasize one's meaning by the deliberate use of language which states the opposite of the truth — or drastically and obviously understates a factual connection.

In dramatic irony, the author causes a character to speak or act erroneously, out of ignorance of some portion of the truth of which the audience is aware. In other words, the audience knows the character is making a mistake, even as the character is making it. This technique highlights the importance of a particular truth by portraying a person who is strikingly unaware of it.

Super Bitchen!!! I'm serious. How will the slave trade unfold? Will it just be negroids again, or will white deptor chicks be fair game? I live in China, and had been thinking about sitting the shit out before comin back, but if what your saying is true, my fantasy is about to unfold?? If I own an actual slave, guess I can't get busted for raping it, huh? How bout killing it, if it gets lazy or mouths off? I'm goin back a rich man, and gonna put together a harem of slaves!!!... ooh, the possibilities :) Y'know, there's really notjing wrong with debtor slavery. Honestly. People got themselves into way more debt than they knew they could handle, and felt nothing of spending others' money that they didn't earn. Seems fair they should have to pay the piper. There's no free lunch for freeloadin bummies. Fuck em :)

Scisco's picture

Wrong. He was arguing against laws that force businesses to transact with other individuals. Troll harder.

P.S. by freedom I assume you mean freedom from personal responsibility and freedom from making choices for yourself.

GeezerGeek's picture

Sen. Barry Goldwater opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 because of the inclusion of Title II, which had seriously deleterious effects on private property rights. His record on supporting minorities' rights was stellar. The 1964 legislation did not end slavery, so opposing it would not have reinstated it. It must be nice to be so oblivious to reality.

BigJim's picture

Ah, you were being sarcastic. Phew!

More, please. This is great. Someone so dense they seem sarcastic. What else can you tell us, MDB?

Tsukato's picture

Why dont you STFU! The whole slave deal is way too bitchin! There's really nothing wrong with it. We have wage slaves now, right? We just shouldn't be able to enslave babies of slaves. They should be free of course. But their mothers need to learn a valuable lesson. Don't live beyond your means!

buyingsterling's picture

most entertaining comment section ever.

Paul understands that the Civil rights act is not only unconstitutional but represents the ridiculous notion that Governments can legislate and mandate social conduct  (the freedom to think and act  in a certian way).  It forced black people to integrate with white people, something that hurt blacks ( and America) immensely.  Watch the bench at a football game. Blacks sit with blacks and whites sit with whites, not because it's raciest but because it is perfectly natural.

 The idea that Americans are forced, by the federal government, to hire blacks because they are black and women because they are women and fat people because they are fat and gays because they are gay and transvestites because they are transvestites should stop and make you think about what America has become.

 Ron Paul is exactly correct on the Civil rights act and the similar laws that followed.  Are you free to make your decisions or does the Government make them for you? One or the other.. does'nt matter what the decision is. You are free or you are not.

1. no, he wants to open it up to competition against a "sound" money (gold backed money)

2. kind of true, but all we have done is unite Islam.  There are no christian churches left in the middle east and Christians are being killed daily now in Egypt and probably Libya too now.

3. WTF are you talking about link please.

You are a tool.

 He may be a tool but Ron Paul is right on the Civil rights act .

Okay, I humored you.  Read it.  Can I vote for him now?

Signed, yet another arrogant libertarian who also wants to abolish the Fed, end the war on terror, and allow THE PEOPLE, not the IDIOTIC GOVERNMENT to make the calls on social acceptability.

Kiss kiss.

Don Birnam's picture

The Devil's Advocate trolling shtick is getting quite tired. Unmask yourself and participate using your genuine candor. 

As an aside, the "War on Terror" so-called has resulted in the loss of so many personal liberties and has erected so many police-state edifices, it would be well to attenuate it.

What a slave. It doesnt matter who is President anymore. It doesnt matter who your "representative" is anymore. We havent been represented in a century. Keep paying your taxes and contributing to your 401k and move along drone. Spread your message bro! Obama is the only one who can save us, make him dictator! Make sure you indoctrinate your kids to think and act like you too. That way theres less people buying land and hoarding metals so my kids can take the lions share.
