For the first time in human history, supporters of liberty around the world can share information across borders quickly and cheaply. Without the filter of government censors, this information emboldens millions to question governments and promote liberty.” - Ron Paul

Is the US Dollar’s global process of rejection gathering pace?

China might be making overt moves toward a convertible Yuan currency. (…) Consider the recent acceleration in Chinese gold accumulation, either the basis core for a gold-backed Yuan alternative to the crippled toxic USDollar, or the basis core for a new global trade settlement system to be introduced very soon. The usually patient Beijing leaders are showing signs of no longer possessing patience. The gold imports from Hong Kong are not simply rising; they are exploding in unprecedented fashion. Something big is going on.” – Jim Willie (1)

Self Governance versus false government security blanket

The social self by Nikkihiggins / Wikimedia

“Do we really want to live in a world of police checkpoints, surveillance cameras, and metal detectors? Do we really believe government can provide total security?”

“Internal self governance, by contrast, is a much more powerful regulator of human behavior than any law. This self-governance must be developed from birth, first by parents but later also through the positive influence of relatives and adult role models.” – Ron Paul

Ron Paul: Fractional Reserve Banking, Government, and Moral Hazard

Image: Ambro / freedigitalphotos.net *

Fractional reserve banks … create money out of thin air. Essentially they do it in the same way as counterfeiters. Counterfeiters, too, create money out of thin air by printing something masquerading as money or as a warehouse receipt for money. In this way, they fraudulently extract resources from the public, from the people who have genuinely earned their money. In the same way, fractional reserve banks counterfeit warehouse receipts for money, which then circulate as equivalent to money among the public. There is one exception to the equivalence: The law fails to treat the receipts as counterfeit.” - Murray Rothbard

“Fractional reserve banking is the practice by which banks accept deposits but only keep a fraction of those deposits on hand at any time. (…) And if depositors en masse attempt to withdraw more funds than are available in reserves, the entire of house of cards comes crashing down. This is the very real threat facing some European banks today.” - Ron Paul

Audit the Fed: UPDATE with Lew Rockwell

“Ron Paul made the Fed an issue the first time since 1913 when the Thing went into existence. (…) People are right to focus on the Fed: it’s a very dangerous institution (…) The Fed is the foundation of all our economic troubles, here, in Europe, and in – I’m afraid – the coming global depression.

Ron Paul: When will we attack Syria?

“In my opinion, all the evidence to justify this attack is bogus.
It is no more credible than the pretext given for the 2003 invasion of Iraq
or the 2011 attack on Libya.”

It’s time to bring our troops home
and establish a non-interventionist foreign policy,
which is the only road to peace and prosperity.”
Ron Paul

Floor Speech, Syria June 19 2012 – June 19 2012

“We live in a world that seems to have abandoned
the concept of savings and investment
as the source of real wealth and economic growth.”

“Control of the world’s economy has been placed
in the hands of a banking cartel,
which holds great danger for all of us.”

Ron Paul

Ron Paul: Audit the Fed, Before It’s Too Late!

Transcript:
Audit the Fed, Before It’s Too Late!
by Ron Paul – Daily Paul
March 5, 2012

“While the Fed has recently released an unprecedented amount of information on its activities, there is still much that remains unknown. Predictably, every push towards transparency has been fought tooth and nail. It took disclosure requirements enacted within the Dodd-Frank Act to get the Fed to provide data on its emergency lending facilities. It took lawsuits filed by Bloomberg and Fox News to provide data on discount window lending during the worst parts of the financial crisis. And it will take further concerted action on the part of Congress, the media, and the public to keep up pressure on the Fed to become and remain transparent.” Continue reading

Ron Paul: U.S. Economy squeezed as Debt accelerates

Speech against Raising the Debt Ceiling by 1.2 Trillion – Jan 18 2012

Economy squeezed as Debt accelerates

Senator Jeff Sessions, ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee has pointed out that our per capita government debt is already larger than Greece’s.  Per person, our government owes over $49,000 compared to $38,937 per Greek citizen.  Our debt has just reached 101% of our Gross Domestic Product.  Our creditors see this and have quietly slowed down or stopped their lending to us.  As a result, the Federal Reserve has been outright monetizing debt as a way to patch things together and keep the economy on life support a little longer.  There is rapidly shrinking demand for our debt, and confidence in the dollar is falling.  This phenomenon is hidden only by the fact that confidence in all other fiat currencies is falling faster.
