Palin Takes On The Fed

Sarah Palin is publicly speaking about the evils of the Federal Reserve. Will others join her and Ron Paul in restoring sound money?

Palin, Sounding Like Ron Paul, Takes on the Fed
By Alex Frangos

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin fired a shot at the Federal Reserve in her coming-out speech in Hong Kong today, blaming the central bank for the current crisis and disagreeing with the idea that the Fed should have a greater role in preventing the next crisis. It was an echo of fellow Republican and Texas congressman Ron Paul, who has led the charge in Congress to perform an audit of the Federal Reserve with an eye to eventually eliminating it.


“The government ordered the loosening of lending standards. The Federal Reserve kept interest rates low. The government forced lending institutions to give loans to people who as I say, couldn’t afford them. Speculators spotted new investment vehicles, jumped on board and rating agencies underestimated risks. So many to be blamed on so many different levels, but the fact remains that these people were responding to a market solution created by government policies that ran contrary to common sense,” she said.


Free-Market Alternative To G-20

Joan Veon's comment about everyone being in debt to central bankers is accurate. We have mortgaged our economic future to a group of private bankers.

"You don't have to be a socialist to be concerned about the G-20," said Thomas Woods, one of three speakers at Freedom Conference 2009, a conservative forum billed as a "free-market alternative to the G-20."

"The countries of the world owe the banks 67 percent of their GDP," said Joan Veon, founder of the Women's International Media Group and another speaker. "This is what we call world government."

An Unusual Phenomenon

The politician who cannot tell a lie
By Daniel Hannan Politics

Ron Paul is an unusual phenomenon: a politician who always answers questions fully and honestly. This tendency often gets him into trouble: although people say they want straight-talking representatives, they often react with horror when they get one.

Dr Paul’s ruthless application of his convictions - minimal government, localism, personal freedom and adherence to the letter of the US Constitution - alienates many of the conservatives who might have been expected to back him.

Tea Party Coverage

Two million man march in Washington
by Robert Rule


An estimated 2 to 3 million people gathered on the Washington mall on Saturday, 9/12 to protest many things. A growing majority of people are very angry and very concerned about both parties in this country. Its true Fox news jumped on the bandwagon after Obama was elected and about one third of those people were there because of the 912 project put together by Glenn Beck but that isn’t what sparked Saturday’s event.

In 2007 a Republican Congressman from Texas named Ron Paul hit the scene. Through the internet his campaign took off and was largely ignored by the media including Fox news and Glenn Beck. When Ron Paul raised the most money from troops over seas than any other candidate republican or democrat and raised the most money in a single day on the internet the media had no choice but to cover him, then they tried to discredit him. ...

His message of limited Government, lower taxes, and free markets is what drew people to his campaign. Americans who believed in the message of freedom watched as Ron Paul was excluded from the Fox news debate and watched as every news outlet tried to make fun of the man. Jay Leno came to the rescue that time and asked Dr. Paul to be on his show to talk about it. Ron Paul was said to be the only guest to actually meet and greet people, ever.


Many are saying what you saw in Washington on Saturday is a new revolution. Let’s hope they make the right decision at election time instead of voting for the same old party hacks.

Florida GOP Implosion

The Florida GOP continues to exclude those who were energized the past couple years who also believe in Constituional principles. The Florida GOP prefers to stay in charge, even if that means shrinking and losing elections.

Republican party implosion deepens

A rift has been developing for some time between the state's Republican leadership and the more moderate/Libertarian members. On Friday, this rift finally tore with the dismissal of five party members who had requested an audit of the party's financial records and were members of the Republican Liberty Caucus, a group which seeks a return to Constitutional adherence.
Make no mistake, the paradigm has shifted, the question is whether or not the Republican Party can make the jump or will it be left behind?
