    1. I 100% agree. I don't like ever single thing Ron says, but man I love this guy. And he without question better than Obama. Ron Paul please run again, please.

  1. My hearty regards to Doctor Paul.
    (I called him “Doctor” instead of “Congressman” because the former is much more honorable.)

    I wish Paul could take over the bodies of all the members of Congress, a la “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”!

  2. "Sound money" means gold and silver, which are all currently mostly owned by major banks and especially central banks.

    We could return to "sound money" tomorrow and be in exactly the same position, because the major owners of "sound money" are the creators of today's "fiat money."

    The question of whether a paper dollar is "backed" by gold or silver is basically irrelevant; the "backing" ended under Nixon and not much changed. Metal backing provides a limited check on money creation, but the paper "backed" by it can still be over-printed and over-leveraged, so it doesn't solve any fundamental problems.

    The real question is WHO is allowed to print money and BY WHAT PROCESS. Is it private, undemocratic and unaccountable, or public, democratic and transparent?

  3. I'm not sure where this theory comes from that you can't have an Empire if the currency is gold and silver. Wasn't the Spanish Empire based on gold and silver? Can't you "balance the budget" (and them some) by killing off the Incas and Aztecs and stealing *their* gold? By enslaving people and forcing them into mines? Did Alexander the Great have a Central Bank?____Nevertheless, thank you Dr. Paul for trying to end the Fed, because it is private, undemocatic, unaccountable and non-transparent.
