Prediction #3

Donald Trump enters the Race at the last possible minute as an Indepent, in order to take votes away from Ron Paul, allowing Perry to win.

With quotes like "your fired" the Trump will be a conteder.

And his business dealings are much like those dealings of America.

With quotes like " we should make other countries pay us", it's already what the Empire is already doing.

Cuz the sheeple always go with the puppet with the most personality.

And then maybe the Trump can follow up with a new TV show entitled "The Steal"!

How he single handedly stole the election.

Then navy's the Trump could lay the Constution on the stage and invite all the Congress members to take a shit on it before exiting the building..

"don't let the door hit you on the way out" yells Trump to the former Congress members.

Then Trump will introduce the new Super Congress (already in the making) comprised of members from Canada and Mexico amonst others.

Its all about the hair.

 

If I was Ron Paul, after this is all over, at the last debate, I'd pull my wang-doodle out and wag it in the cameras and say "Good luck assholes!!" , throw down my mic and walk off the stage.

All of them are beyond awful, save Ron Paul. Though I didn't like Paul's answer on the private market regulating air traffic control, or drug companies regulating themselves. That is pure B.S., they will put profit over people. Not everything can or should be reduced to the dollar, or to market forces -- because some things are more important.

Also, Perry is beyond dumb, his answers are terrible. If Perry gets the nomination, it's an easy Obama win in 2012.

Ron said that the corporations already regulate themselves as they dominate the creation and enforcement of government regulations. You don't like that do you?

Ron did not say that corporations should regulate themselves. He said that the market will regulate them. Look at Underwriter's Laboratories, for example. UL is a private company that rates almost every piece of electrical equipment sold in the US. Manufacturers and retailers voluntarily follow the UL standard because providing safer products which their customers trust increases their sales and profits and reduces their liability.

The regulators on Wall Street are doing a great job.  I think we should have more of them.  They could be even greater.  Regulation is neither good or bad as a concept but in practice it sure seems to be bad.  Regulation is meant to keep the little guy from being able to compete.  You can't grow a pot plant in your basement but the legal drug dealers can create a generation full of babies with flippers for arms and get a slap on the wrist.

The problem is the nuance of the words and how they get twisted.  There are "Fair Business Standards" that are also "regulations" to play the game and then there are regulations for control.  The "regulation" against anti-trust and monopoly clearly are intended to help the little guy.

The real regulations that are the problem are when all the minutia are supposed to be guarded by some new federal agency "watchdog" that then gets so bloated and lazy and bribed and influenced that they no longer need to regulate since nobody notices or cares and there is no law or justice.

Dr. Paul needs to set himself apart from all the others, and point out that he is nothing like them.  Let the anger at the status quo rise up (that is how Obama tricked the Dems into electing him).  Ron Paul is the candidate of real change.  The problem with his solutions are that they have pain involved with them, like taking medicine that doesn't taste good but it works.  I think he needs to let America know that this is their last chance to change the course of destruction that we are on.  Talk about economic collapse, bankruptcy, default, etc... Educate people about the FED (that is why he needs a half hour infomercial).

Ron Paul doesn't have to change to become electable.  America needs to change to be able to elect Ron Paul.

The first is that TPTB are desperate and under pressure.  As a result, the invisible hand is just tad visible now for those who care to look.

The second is that it is just too obvious and something more "creative" is to come of this.

Neither thought is good though.

 

Either way, the MSM has been exposed as a complete fraud.  Journalism is dead.  Shame on every talking head... take your places alongside the financial elite, politicians for sale, and assorted other scum.  When the SHTF, dont ask me for help.

Another example Dr. Paul used was the armored car services -- which provide THEIR OWN security.   Also, pilots were stripped of their weapons and directed not to engage in conflicts.   Eff that!  Start shooting some of those rowdy passengers and we'll all be safer.   Who would piss on an airplane again?  Private enterprise can do this.

But they DO self regulate if the government would get the fuck out the way.

Citi, jp Morgan, Merrill, bac, wells etc would all be GONE if not for fed intervention. Free market regulation bitchez.

People equate regulation with laws and procedures. I.e. What politicians like to SAY.

Ron Paul equates regulation with outcomes, ie. What individuals DO. Poison your clients and you'll have no clients. Take massive risks and your business goes bankrupt. Fuck up your security and no one will fly your airline.

That is free market regulation.

The Rothchilds never dropped an A-bomb on anyone but the power they do have for mischief comes from their association with government. The same is true of any criminal corporation which uses its government ties to restrain the free market.

Government does not rein in corporations. It gives enormous power to select corporations at the expense of other businesses and individual people.

If you look at the history of the world, tyrants come to power and do bad things regardless of the economic system in place.

The "come to power" part is where your argument falls flat.   In the U.S. you don't just "come to power".   Yes, we may elect some creepy ones now and then (okay, a lot), but it doesn't stand for long.   I direct your attention to a dress with strange "stains" on it.

Perry is Obama's twin when it comes to governing.  He reads nonsense rhetoric off a telepromter having nothing to do with his actual executive actions, while doing everything he can to out-borrow and out-spend the USG.

Ron Paul is the only one who can be trusted with the presidency.

 

He should get off the Libertarian Purity Test version of anti-regulation ranting.  Should talk about rolling back lobbyist-written regulations which wreck the free market and say it's not the federal government's job to take sides or pick winners, a la Solyndra.

Banker-manipulated government partnerships with the drug companies and the insurance companies (as proven by the healthcare legislation they fashion) are a little worse IMHO and apparently Paul's,  than the removal of government from the free enterprise process. Ron Paul is suggesting that the government get out of the monopoly business and let private industry sink or swim on its own products and prices so competition, the people, can decide.  IOW, he is suggesting that America go back to her earlier days when as a young doctor he practiced medicine under a system where health care was affordable for American families, without insurance.  Those were the days preceding price extortion brought on by legislation designed by the drug and insurance company lobbyists - and backed with the police power of the Federal government.

He sounds like an old man.  I'm voting for him anyway because I figure that whole Einstein quote should apply with status quoish politics as well as nutjobs on the street, but he definitely needs help in the speech department (not to mention not getting so frustrated over this stuff...after all, its only our future at stake). 

What I found intriguing was that he pointed out that the fiat currency system is the major cause of our oil ills, not any of this other BS being spout by the other candidates regarding maximizing our capacity or drilling in Alaska.  Simply fantastic that he's edumacating the sheeple in his own old-manish ways.

One thing I noticed... I think Gingrich is going to become the future Ron Paul.  He's already got the hair and he had a sliver of the old-man frustration that Ron Paul seems to evoke...thus making me cringe because I know people don't vote old-man.

It seemed really skewed toward Perry and Romney.  Paul got very few questions, and the ones he got were pretty much inconsequential.  Even the one where they were asking everyone and stopped before asking Ron and a couple of others.

Betcha that only one or two of these GOP hopefuls understand that the only way to create jobs for Americans is to take those jobs away from the immigrants and give them back to Americans. That is the ONLY way to create jobs, folks. Period. It is that simple. I don't understand why the politicians do not understand that.

Exactly which jobs that the "immigrants" have do you think will save the economy?  How about bringing our jobs back from China, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Taiwan, Mexico, Hondurus, etc.  If the manufacturing sector came back, we'd have plenty to go around.

After several election cycle observations, I've come to the conclusion that the Republicans allow too many comtenders into the race, dilute the vote, and allow the third place candidate, the one no one likes (ala McCain) to win as the other two strong contenders split the vote just enough to screw the real victor.

They do it to themselves.  I think that's why Perry is now in the race... Ron Paul has too much of a shot at actually getting the third spot as Romney and Candidate X (there really is no one else I can see that has enough momentum) bonk each other out of the race.

Maybe this time it'll work in Paul's favor.  Lastly, is it me or did Bachmann look frightening?
