Sound Money

The Washington Times has a commentary on the raid last week of a company that was selling coins or medallions with the likeness of Ron Paul.

The article raises good points on the confusing laws and how the government uses force to stop those who want to compete with the government.


Any citizen may possess, buy and sell as many gold, silver or other metal coins (medallions) produced by governments and private mints as he chooses. However, he may not pass off any of them as "money," except the "legal tender" coins minted by the government, such as the U.S. "quarter."

Now, you might be thinking if you can sell the coins in your coin collection for money, whether or not they are U.S. legal tender, what is the difference?

This nonsense only gets worse.

LAKE JACKSON — Come rain or shine, intense heat or freezing temperatures, 45-year-old Michael Maresco pedals his way through the countryside spreading the word about Congressman Ron Paul and promoting paul’s campaign for president in the 2008 election.

Sunday, Paul joined in on the bike ride and rode with Maresco for about 10 miles before returning to his Lake Jackson home.

“That’s why I can’t fade out of this campaign very easily, with people like this,” Paul said.

November 30th Donation Day

Ron Paul’s supporters use Rudy’s foreign policy views as a fund raising event

Grass roots supporters of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul have added November 30th as a mass donation day to support Ron Paul. The online fundraising event has been dubbed Rudy’s Reading List and if successful may be the most expensive education in history. The new site has already gained about 1000 subscribers.

Ron Paul supporters used Rudy Giuliani’s foreign policy views as the staging point for this latest online fund raising assault. The website features four foreign policy books including the ‘911 Commission Report’.


Three A Day

I have made it a personal goal to each day spend several minutes with three people who don't know Ron Paul's message of liberty, freedom, and limited government.

This has been interesting, with the funniest response so far: "But I'm a Democrat". Democrats can do is to change their party affiliation and vote for Ron Paul.

Who Is Afraid Of The Constitution?


A successful Ron Paul campaign will go a long way toward correcting America’s course. Remember when one votes, you are voting for a policy. A vote for any candidate for president in 2008 other than Rep. Ron Paul is a vote for the same policies that lead to war, inflation, government tyranny, abuse of power, higher taxes, and bigger government. Rep. Ron Paul would make a dandy new leader for what’s left of our republic. Mona Charen seems a bit frightened by the U.S. Constitution.

Hundreds Attend Paul's Rally At U. Nevada Reno

Nov 21, 2007

( This story was written by From Staff Reports, Sagebrush
More than 600 people came out Tuesday afternoon for a rally held by presidential hopeful Ron Paul.

Paul, the Texas representative who's gaining attention for his online and grassroots support, spoke to the crowd about ending the war in Iraq, limiting government regulation and gaining economic stability.

"We don't need to sacrifice," Paul said, drawing applause from the audience. "What we need is freedom to make our own decisions."

Many students said they support Paul because they agreed with his views on the United States Constitution.

"He stands for the Constitution and personal liberties," said Melissa Lau, a psychology major at the University of Nevada at Reno. "As college students, we are aware of civil liberties and he supports that."

Paul also held a fundraising luncheon, where 60 people donated between $500 and $1000 to his campaign.


Larry Lepard's Apathy Is Cured

BOSTON, Nov. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Larry Lepard, a 50-year-old investment manager, Harvard Business School MBA, and Ron Paul supporter, is bringing the concept of "grassroots" to a whole new level. After collaborating on design and copy with a spontaneously generated team of Paul supporters on, Lepard invested approximately $85,000 of his own money to send a message to the voting public: "Ron Paul is the best hope America has to restore the Constitution and get our country back on track."

Humble Foreign Policy


"If we think that we can do what we want around the world and not incite hatred, then we have a problem," Paul said at the debate. "They don't come here to attack us because we're rich and we're free. They come and they attack us because we're over there."

Ron Paul Questions Federal Reserve's Bernanke


November 9, 2007 -- Ben Bernanke fielded hostile grilling yesterday by politicians exasperated over the weakening economy and its toll on Americans - and briefly sent stocks tumbling as he conceded harder times are ahead.

The Federal Reserve chairman offered familiar one-liners about watching the economy for "signs of inflation," but did little to appease any of his angry interrogators on the Congressional Joint Economic Committee or Wall Street itself.


Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) peppered Bernanke about the dollar's 22 percent loss this year, saying it's wrecking savings of older Americans. "You keep lowering the value of the doller with rate cuts. You're robbing people of their dollars," Paul said.

Bernanke shrugged him off, saying that Americans spend dollars in America, but they lose purchasing power only if they "buy more expensive imported goods."


Apparently the people at the secret, private banking company "Federal Reserve" manage to live in America without consuming anything that is imported.
"... Americans spend dollars in America, but they lose purchasing power only if they buy more expensive imported goods."
Imported goods like oil and clothes are increasing in price. Domestically produced food is increasing in price because the fuel need to plant/harvest/transport food has increased in price.

Inflation has been here for a few years, as this is how we are financing the on-going occupation of Iraq. We can tax and/or issue debt to finance wars. We are issuing debt, which has the immediate effect of devaluing the dollar which increases inflation.
