Ron Paul Recants The GOP, Just Says No To Keynesians

Tyler Durden's picture





 

As we anticipate more demand-rigging, pump-priming, can-kicking experiments from Bernanke today, Ron Paul just came out with his latest stream of truthiness (via Bloomberg):

  • *REP. PAUL SAYS BOTH PARTIES KEYNESIANS, GOP 'NOT HIS
    PARTY'
  • *REP. PAUL SAYS FED PRICE FIXING
  • *REP. PAUL SAYS FED FLOODING MARKET WITH MONEY

Indeed, what is the opposite of 'between a rock and a hard place' when deciding on just who will provide 'change' in November.

Rights mean you have a right to your life. You have a right to your liberty, and you should have a right to keep the fruits of your labor [abolish IRS]....I, in a way, don’t like to use those terms: gay rights, women’s rights, minority rights, religious rights. There’s only one type of right. It’s the right to your liberty.”    - Ron Paul

Down with Rom-Bama and the hostile buyout of the USA!  Just like a target of a takeover, they've pumped up the debt and pushed the imbalanced nation to the cliff's edge.  And when it crashes, they will get first dibs on the choicest salvage!

Why won't RP just endorse Gary Johnson? Otherwise some of us will choose to vote Libertarian, some of us will choose to write in Ron Paul. I'd rather see Johnson get 10% of the vote than see a lot of people trying to choose between Kang and Kodos, others writing in, and others voting Libertarian. It would certainly be a more unified message to TPTB.

I like Ron and Rand but I am skeptical.  Ron had Romney's back against Santorum.  romney let Ron Paul stay at Romney's mansion on Lake Winnepesakee, NH during the NH primary.  Ron Paul was buddies with Romney all through the primaries.

We also know Newt was brought in by Adelson to also cover Romney's back.   Santorum would have beaten Romney if Newt was not there.  Ron Paul would have been the best choice or Rand but Santorum was better than Romney.

HOT: Ron Paul Left Tampa Yesterday Posted by Lew Rockwell on August 29, 2012 10:49 AM

Ron, Carol, and one of their granddaughters left the GOP snake pit yesterday afternoon, but the State was not yet through with them. At the little airport in Clearwater, 8 TSA agents descended on them and ordered them not to board their private plane. First, the pilots, the airplane, and the passengers would have to be screened in great detail, because Romney might be nearby. After a long examination of the pilots and their credentials, the agents said they had to check the plane for explosives. One of the pilots noted that the plane, full of aviation fuel, was already a bomb. Then Carol Paul, who has a pacemaker, refused to be screened, and an aide started taking video of the whole rotten process. At that point, the TSA backed down and let them through, to Texas and freedom

No, it makes sense.  There was a Taft-ian wing of the party that was anti-intervention.  Things just aren't bad enough where the average voter has made the connection between an interventionist foreign policy and our domestic issues.  That time will come, however.

There is at least a modicum of hope for the Stupid Party.  There's nothing left but turning America into Chicago for the Evil Party.

All true. But I have to point out that there is nothing left of the Taftian wing. The only thing left in the Stupid Party is a bunch of post-neocon pawns. The central irony, IMO, is that the supporters of this party have the ability to fool themselves into believing that these guys are going to do something different - this time.

At least with the Demican party, the useful idiot crew believes (and receives) loot from the rest of us (which is of course what they want).

Calling the GOP "stupid party" would involve that there is a form of intelligence at play. I would say that's true for no more than 10% of the GOP base. The rest is Zombie Party.

So write in Ron Paul with Gary Johnson as veep.  Then they would theoretically have to count it.  The more likely outcome is that your vote would be used to line the bottom of a bird cage, but at least you followed their protocol.

There can be no grand tally of those who write in Paul if everyone writes in a different VEEP. So even if it was counted it would never be reported.

@LawsofPhysics: I agree: "Write in Ron Paul, sleep well."

My mom, a lifelong Democrat, told me some months ago that Ron Paul was the only candidate that made sense to her.

Instead of normally cancelling out each other's vote, this election we have promised each other to write in Ron Paul.

Maybe an "adopt-a-liberal" program like this could sweep the nation :-)

If the Bamster wins because of it, then so be it; I'm prepared largely because of ZH.

Exactly!  The same puppet masters that have aligned behind Romney and his money machine are the same ones that launched Obama into the White House back in 08.  I often wonder why those donors would abandon Obama though.  He was quite the crony capitalist and fed more fiat to these fucks than I would have ever imagined, so why the change of heart?  the only thing I can think of is that Romney's experience at Bain makes him much more in tune with the machinations of Wall Street and asset stripping, therefore Romney will be more eloquent in baffling the masses with bull shit as the politically connected strip the wealth from any of those damned savers.

That is not the question for he will be retired and eating chocolate chip cookies.  He's done enough.

The question is what is next for humanity if they don't even respect or expect their own liberty and only get a virtual simulacrum of what that once meant.

Also, since the masses have been awakened by the internet what will they do to expand his message and movement of prosperity through peace and freedom.

The movement is in the hands of the people now.  The intellectual revolution has begun.  Just 4 years ago nobody cared to speak about the Fed.  What is Bernanke's legacy?  Ron Paul busted his ass all over the internet and as been right, documented and replayable for centuries, about 1000 more things than Ben can even dream to be right about. 

GOLD IS NOT MONEY!  That was a good one Ben.  Some legacy.

 

Here, for the internet's enjoyment, Ron Paul being right about many things.  Nostradamus doesn't have anything on Dr. Paul.

It's simply amazing how one man speaking the truth absolutely blazes like a match in the dark.  For all of the debt and unfunded liabilities, we run an even greater deficit on the things needed most at this critical point in our history - integrity, courage, truth and sound economic reasoning.

Yes, I'll only add that there needs to be real consequences for bad behavior.  Where is John Corzine?  When people know that their life is on the line, they tend to act a bit more respectful.  Same reason why a well armed society tends to be considerable more polite (well at least after all the gang-fucks have killed each other).

You obviously don't have any idea what he/we are doing.... In america, there is basically a two party system. No 3rd party is near viability yet. So our choices are... 1. Stick our heads in the sand and BOHICA 2. Take the repulican party over from the ground up. Wrest control of it and give the power back to the people. I realize this is an uphill battle and one that may never come to be. But I am thankful to god that there are men like Ron Paul and the patriots across the nation who have poured their hearts, souls, and dollars into trying to do something about it instead of sitting back and watching Rome burn while those fuckers at goldman sachs, the fed, and the govt pillage every fucking person in the country that's not a member of their cabal. I am finished fucking with these treasonous dick smacks and Ron Paul and the liberty movement is the only way I see of fixing it before my kids have to learn the realities of war first hand.

I doubt if Dr. Paul worries about it too much.  It's enough to know that one has lived his life well.  For all of the poor treatment Dr. Paul has suffered at the hands of his detractors,  it's not nearly as much as what Ludwig Von Mises went through.  Mises is one of the most brilliant men of the 20th century but few have ever even heard his name.

RP is making a disservice to the freedom movement.

A lot of good people still think politics will be a solution because he insists on staying with Republicans.

Even if by a miracle he was elected, you can bet a Kennedy would be pulled on him.

You should expect nothing from government. Learn to avoid it as much as you can.

Yes, this includes voting. It's a farce to provide legitimacy to the thugs. Don't be a part of it.

Personal freedom always has, and always will, begin as an idea to be cherished inside of one's own head, even if one's physical liberties are taken away.  RP is the at the vanguard of contemporary education in this regard, so I respectfully disagree that he has done a disservice to the freedom movement as you suggest.  To the contrary, his tenacity has awakened millions to the construct of the current system, the power of critical thinking, and the need for fundamental change.  By trying to promote change within the current system, I believe he has laid bare the corruption for all to see, even if only a small minority see it clearly today.

Ron Paul never had a chance for winning the GOP nomination let alone the presidency for many reasons:

1. The majority of Americans are so ignorant of basic market economics and so accustomed to entitlements that they are viscerally repelled by Paul's libertarian/personal responsibilty/hard money message. The fact is, most Americans don't want to work for what they get.

2. Millions of Americans have been discarded by the fiat Ponzi scheme. They've lost everything and have nothing to lose. One would think Paul's message would resonate with them. See #1.

3. The US is so behind the 8 ball fiscally and financially, that returning to a hard money pay-as-you-go system would be a fatal transition. We have scammed the world for uncountable $trillions. Our finances make ordinary bankruptcy look like sucess. The minute we admit to what we have perpetrated onto the world we sign our collective death warrant. In for a penny, in for a pound. There's no retirement from the fiat Ponzi criminal syndicate.

Fear, mostly. Look at how many commentators here are going to hold their nose and vote for one ass clown because they are afraid of [policy] of the other, and this site contains a few basis points higher of awareness than just about everything else. They will do this even though it is widely acknowledged that voting changes nothing, since votes just elect ELECTORS who are pre-selected that actually vote for the presidential post.

Fear is a powerful motivator, and will override rational judgement every time. We are just wired that way, and it is painfully difficult to override it.

"Wizard's First Rule: people are stupid." Richard and Kahlan frowned even more. "People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People's heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool.
". . . People need an enemy to feel a sense of purpose. It's easy to lead people when they have a sense of purpose. Sense of purpose is more important by far than the truth. In fact, truth has no bearing in this. Darken Rahl is providing them with an enemy, other than himself, a sense of purpose. People are stupid; they want to believe, so they do."
