Marc Faber: "Ron Paul Would Be A Very Good President"

Tyler Durden's picture


While Marc Faber shares the usual stock of insightful market commentary, together with timing inflection points, and extended thoughts in the attached Bloomberg TV clip, it is the fact that he has officially joined Bill Gross, and so many others, in supporting the candidacy of Ron Paul as president. It is rather sad that only those who see beyond the surface of the current pyramid scheme facade, are bold enough to endorse the only man who is right for the White House. Fast forward to 15 minutes into the video to hear Marc Faber: "Ron Paul would be a very good president."

Ron Paul has zero experience herding cats.  While I think he's right about most things...he would be a lame duck president from day one.  The congress would run the country.  All the things we wish he could do, he can't...because he hasn't built a majority movement.

That is an interesting argument and one I've thought myself. But I do believe as Commander in Chief he can order all military personnel home and Congress wouldn't be able to do anything to stop him other than impeachment. Bringing the troops home almost guarantees the rejection of the dollar over seas. No dollars for oil and the whole scheme collapses without any legislation having to be passed. Yes, our Fed government would not exist without fiat. Undermine fiat and you undermine the government. Impeaching him might lead to a civil war of statists vs libertarians. Probably would be war as both sides might think they have a chance at winning and that might be bloody. But there are a million and one directions these chaotic times can spin off towards.

Big Ron paul supporter but just don't see him getting the nomination with TPTB. We got this fuck in office making sure numbers are cooked to gain points. What really baffles me is this president has in his healthcare package to chip people while the holy rollers have said for years the microchip is the mark of the beast. Yet they will vote for Its just funny how doomed we really are.

Another thing is we have way to many folks asleep. They want their reality tv and bullshit news fed to them. They actually want a master because we see how they vote which makes me think this. If RP doesn't run 3rd party I am going to vote for Obama out of spite hoping this MOTHER FUCKER BURNS!!!! The people deserve it because they are so pussified and just ignorant.

Its just depressing knowing everything we do. Most on ZH see the big picture even the trolls. They troll to throw us off when they need to fuck off. Its just a sad society who is in a trance and wants to be there. Really upsetting when you look around and listen to the shit coming from their mouth. And they believe it. sigh.....

All we can do is try our best for Ron Paul to be the next President if not good luck everyone.

To raise the level of debate here is an article about natural law and laws of the state. Note that because a state passes a law it does not mean that the law is just or respectable or any such thing. Ron Paul understands government from a philosophical standpoint and this is why he is miles ahead of every other candidate. Cicero said it best that  "wicked and unjust statutes" are "anything but 'laws "

Ps: In the article it said that Cicero succesfully argued against a law passed which surprise surprise allowed a dicattor (political 1y office in Rome in exceptional circumstance) to kill any Roman citizen without trial...

i like hobbes but i love spinoza...the social contract is not absolute because individuals cannot surrender the right to pursue their own advantage and hence the power of the state should (and in practice probably is) limited to the state's ability to alter the citizens' perception of their own advantage

Cicero was worried about Cicero, not the plebes.

If only Ron Paul could direct that wisdom at his own positions on subjects like abortion.

There's a nice contrapositive to your argument as well...just because there isn't a law against something does not make it any less potentially morally reprehensible (see: "state's rights").

"Ron Paul Would Be A Very Good President"

Funny, we just mentioned that to 250 of our neighbors this week:


Dear Neighbor,

As I'm sure you know, 2012 is a presidential election year. The primary election will be held in our state on April 24, and we need your help to put Ron Paul on the ballot along with the local delegates who can support him at the national convention. These are some of the reasons that we strongly support Ron Paul, and think he would be a great President. 

His respect for the Constitution.

The Constitution is the supreme law of the United States of America. Our founders understood that the threat of domestic tyranny is as great as any threat from abroad, and they crafted our Constitution in order to establish the rights of the people and the limits of government. Increasingly, our government passes laws that violate our Constitution, or simply take actions that disregard it. In December, Congress passed a Defense Authorization Act that allows the President to enforce indefinite imprisonment on American citizens without due process and to order searches and seizures without proper warrants, in violation of the 4th Amendment. Ron Paul has a long record of upholding the Constitution, and has fought against laws that contradict it. 

He does not put the interests of lobbyists or special interests above the interests of the people.

We are sick of politicians who claim they are working for the voters, but allow lobbyists and big donors to write our laws. Author Thomas Woods says of Ron Paul, “Lobbyists don’t even bother going to his office. If their scheme doesn’t fall among the federal government’s enumerated powers under the Constitution, they know perfectly well that there is no chance Ron Paul will support it.” In 1988, John McCain told Ron Paul's campaign manager, “You’re working for the most honest man in Congress.”

He wants to rein in the Federal Reserve.

The Federal Reserve creates a class of financial elite that uses its profits to buy influence in Washington DC, and our elected officials promote its interests at the expense of ordinary Americans. Ron Paul understands this and wants to end the Fed. He has called the Federal Reserve “an immoral institution” that gives a secretive body “the privilege of creating money out of thin air”. The people who benefit from the Fed’s easy money are the ones who get to use it first -- the banks and Wall Street. They then become the big campaign contributors who reward politicians for helping them out while ignoring the well-being of the voters.

His policies would create solid long-term prosperity rather than booms and busts.

In 2003, Ron Paul warned Congress they were creating policies that would cause a housing market crash. He voted against these policies. In his speech to Congress, he said, “Ironically, by transferring the risk of a widespread mortgage default, the government increases the likelihood of a painful crash in the housing market… This reduces the efficacy of the entire market and thus reduces the standard of living of all Americans... Like all artificially-created bubbles, the boom in housing prices cannot last forever. When housing prices fall, homeowners will experience difficulty as their equity is wiped out.”

Thank you for your consideration and for taking the time to become an informed voter.

Quite obviously if you are a government employee, such as one working for the BLS, the last thing you would want is to see Ron Paul elected; therefore, you'll do whatever is needed to keep Obummer running the same old show in D.C.


These bureaucrats are totally unemployable in the private sector, they are over paid in the government one, and they are frightened by people such as Ron Paul.

Ron Paul for President

Jim Grant - Fed Chairman

Jim Rogers - Sec. Of The Treasury

Make Faber V.P because that would just be awesome (I know, I know we'll have to amend the constitution because he wasn't born here)

We can stick Bill Gross somewhere like Sec. of State

Nassim should be head of the Department of Defense

Snoop Dogg can be head of the DEA & ATF

Eliminate all the departments Ron Paul suggested

Pull the troops home

Castrate most government regulation and interference

Embrace individual liberty and responsibility

Every problem in the country is solved 

....and make some rule where the President can't be on the telly every day spoon feeding us hopium laced Gerber baby formula; SOTU/national emergencies and that's it.

Then we will make a Ron Paul holiday but it will be named after his favorite sin - Chococlate Chip Cookie Day (of course he'll deem that as unconstitutional but the people will participate on their own without government shutdown).

I voted for Ron in the last election knowing it was a vote cast away, but I just could not vote for any of the alternative choices.


I also believe that since Ron has made it very clear he will cut our foreign donations, including those to Israel, his goose is cooked. If you want to absolutely, positively guarantee you will lose an election just say something that AIPAC deems to be detrimental to Israel.


So Ron will have AIPAC working against him and he will have all those tit suckers from the military industrial complex working against him and he will have all those other interests that are dependent upon big government fighting him.


So Ron will need the support of your avareage U.S. citizen to get elected. Will that happen?

I hate to disparage the guy because he has good insight, but really, what value do people like Marc Faber (and, for that matter, Jim Rogers) bring to our world? They trade debt, basically. That's about it. People like him add nothing of value to our society, other than trading debt for profit. Why do they exist? They are middle men in the world of progress. Why do they exist at all? To earn a profit? That's of no use to anyone except Marc Faber. It doesn't help the farmer who raises cattle or sheep. Doesn't help the construction worker or the person who grows the trees said construction worker uses. These types of people exist solely to profit off of the productive labor of other humans, and they are unnecessary. They should go find some other line of work which actually contributes to society.

The first thing a Ron Paul state would do is confiscate all precious metals.  Then declare a state emergency, denying any further elections.

States rights would replace citizen rights,  State ownership of property and commerce.  This will be called the "Transitional Period" without time limits.

The goal of this society is proper thinking and conduct.  If you are deemed unworthly or insubordinate, expulsion.  There will be no costly prisons.  Expulsion or gas, is much cheaper.  One of the major tenets of government is small/cheap.  Those empowered to own property do not have to pay taxes, or fees.

Certain groups of citizens will have various rights limited by various categories, like women, children, skin color, political affiliation, cost to society, age.

Although tax rates are low, the expulsions and the confiscation of property or bribes can support the limited government. Limited means that the one with rifle has all the power.

The people do have some "rights" such as not having medical care but can go to a neighboring state for care for a small fee based on a percentage of what the patient paid for the care.

Costlly elections are no longer allowed and those elected can appoint a "proper" person to take over in case of  death.

I could care less what Faber has to say.  He's bought and paid for and he follows orders as well.  Why is so much time wasted listening to these goons?  Have they ever brought forth anything worthwhile?  Anything?  I rest my case.

Your God damn right he would! look, he is the only Constitutional Candidate running, I don't care WTF other misgivings he may have, as long as he runs on his record, I welcome it.

Were going to get Obama again though, in the off chance of an election that Obama cannot secure states that will NOT put his name on their ballot (because of birth cert reasons) were getting Romney.

I haven't seen ANY air play of Dr. Paul on MSM in 2.5 weeks and it's sad.

Have you ever thrown a vote away in the past? well, Dr. Paul would be the one to waste it on. TPTB will not allow him to win, there just keeping him in the race as a crule joke to keep the Liberatarian's appeased as if they had a shot to restore this Republic.

He may not be the best candidate, but he is a Constitutionalist so he would have my vote regaurdless. Anything less, don't bother voting. 

In a post Glass Stegal, you don't vote a President into office, their appointed. Too much money secrets and power to leave the decision in the hands of the public.

God save our Republic.

He meant for you to look at your (possesive pronoun) first word. You implied "you are", which means that if you want to use it as a contraction, you should have written "You're". The "a" is removed from "are" and the words contracted with the identifer ('), used to show that two words have been joined. Another often seen grammatical mistake that is becoming widely accepted, is the incorrect use of the contraction "should've", derived from "should have". A lot of people hear the contraction as "should of" and write it as such. Once again I blame the curriculum co-ordinators in the Public School Depts.

Au contraire Mr. Helper! There are several acceptable ways to use 'quotation', (or "quotation") marks.

I don't know what ultimate percentages are. I will say that I've been to over 45 different countries and speak a few languages. From my recollection, the majority of the non-English speaking ones opt for the 'apostrophe' looking quotation marks. I remember that because, in fact, I was like 'WTF'? I eventually began using that method.

But thanks for taking time out from inventing the internet to point that out. Good Luck with your global warming dealy-bob.

I will vote Ron Paul no matter what. I think all this crap about a vote for Ron Paul helps Obama hasn't been thought out. There is no essential  difference nor will there be any significant outcome for the US  whether Obama, Gingrich or Romney get elected. They are all alike. Only Paul can at least slow down the government juggernaut.

Mittens and BamBam are both globalist statist anti-american anti-freedom candidates, they are the bankster stooges. You will almost certainly get one of them, its the whole point of the left-right dem/rep false choice. I cant stand the logic of people who claim 'Mittens can win against BamBam' ... OF COURSE HE CAN, THEY ARE ESSENTIALLY EQUIVALENT! A choice between Mittens and BamBam is no choice.

I just watch with the sound off and fiddle my prostate) miss the innumerable press briefings and sound bites, Cops, WWE and RuePaul's Drag Race.
How can it be?

The only thing i miss a little is WWE.  Even that became too much of a soap opera after Mankind dropped off the main fights.  I don't even know what Jersey Shore is.  If the TV is on at work, I can't sit through 10 minutes.  How anyone can sit there and take in that bullshit 24/7 propaganda is beside me.  Asian chicks should stick to the rice fields and Dom Cornholius was probably a crackhead.  About the only thing worth watching is Spongebob.

Tom Waits - Invitation to the blues (with lyrics)
"Invitation To The Blues"
Well she's up against the register with an apron and a spatula,
Yesterday's deliveries, tickets for the bachelors
She's a moving violation from her conk down to her shoes,
Well, it's just an invitation to the blues

And you feel just like Cagney, she looks like Rita Hayworth
At the counter of the Schwab's drugstore
You wonder if she might be single, she's a loner and likes to mingle
Got to be patient, try and pick up a clue

She said "How you gonna like 'em, over medium or scrambled?",
You say "Anyway's the only way", be careful not to gamble
On a guy with a suitcase and a ticket getting out of here
It's a tired bus station and an old pair of shoes
This ain't nothing but an invitation to the blues

But you can't take your eyes off her, get another cup of java,
It's just the way she pours it for you, joking with the customers
Mercy mercy, Mr. Percy, there ain't nothing back in Jersey
But a broken-down jalopy of a man I left behind
And the dream that I was chasing, and a battle with booze
And an open invitation to the blues

But she used to have a sugar daddy and a candy-apple Caddy,
And a bank account and everything, accustomed to the finer things
He probably left her for a socialite, and he didn't 'cept at night,
And then he's drunk and never even told her that her cared
So they took the registration, and the car-keys and her shoes
And left her with an invitation to the blues

'Cause there's a Continental Trailways leaving local bus tonight, good evening
You can have my seat, I'm sticking round here for a while
Get me a room at the Squire, the filling station's hiring,
And I can eat here every night, what the hell have I got to lose?
Got a crazy sensation, go or stay? now I gotta choose,
And I'll accept your invitation to the blues

He didn't exactly endorse Paul, he said right before that Obama is the man.  The Permabear attitude gets a little old.  Yes bondholders were completely wiped out twice in Germany, but they lost two world wars.  Is the US on the verge of losing a world war?  Not unless Iran takes us to the woodshed and somehow I doubt they can throw rocks across the Atlantic.
