Dr. Ron Paul - True Voice of Reason

Time Is Running Out

Dear Friends,

Whenever a Great Bipartisan Consensus is announced, and a compliant media assures everyone that the wondrous actions of our wise leaders are being taken for our own good, you can know with absolute certainty that disaster is about to strike.

The events of the past week are no exception.

The bailout package that is about to be rammed down Congress’ throat is not just economically foolish. It is downright sinister. It makes a mockery of our Constitution, which our leaders should never again bother pretending is still in effect. It promises the American people a never-ending nightmare of ever-greater debt liabilities they will have to shoulder. Two weeks ago, financial analyst Jim Rogers said the bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac made America more communist than China! “This is welfare for the rich,” he said. “This is socialism for the rich. It’s bailing out the financiers, the banks, the Wall Streeters.”

That describes the current bailout package to a T. And we’re being told it’s unavoidable.

The claim that the market caused all this is so staggeringly foolish that only politicians and the media could pretend to believe it. But that has become the conventional wisdom, with the desired result that those responsible for the credit bubble and its predictable consequences - predictable, that is, to those who understand sound, Austrian economics - are being let off the hook. The Federal Reserve System is actually positioning itself as the savior, rather than the culprit, in this mess!

• The Treasury Secretary is authorized to purchase up to $700 billion in mortgage-related assets at any one time. That means $700 billion is only the very beginning of what will hit us.

• Financial institutions are “designated as financial agents of the Government.” This is the New Deal to end all New Deals.

• Then there’s this: “Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.” Translation: the Secretary can buy up whatever junk debt he wants to, burden the American people with it, and be subject to no one in the process.

There goes your country.

Even some so-called free-market economists are calling all this “sadly necessary.” Sad, yes. Necessary? Don’t make me laugh.

Our one-party system is complicit in yet another crime against the American people. The two major party candidates for president themselves initially indicated their strong support for bailouts of this kind - another example of the big choice we’re supposedly presented with this November: yes or yes. Now, with a backlash brewing, they’re not quite sure what their views are. A sad display, really.

Although the present bailout package is almost certainly not the end of the political atrocities we’ll witness in connection with the crisis, time is short. Congress may vote as soon as tomorrow. With a Rasmussen poll finding support for the bailout at an anemic seven percent, some members of Congress are afraid to vote for it. Call them! Let them hear from you! Tell them you will never vote for anyone who supports this atrocity.

The issue boils down to this: do we care about freedom? Do we care about responsibility and accountability? Do we care that our government and media have been bought and paid for? Do we care that average Americans are about to be looted in order to subsidize the fattest of cats on Wall Street and in government? Do we care?

When the chips are down, will we stand up and fight, even if it means standing up against every stripe of fashionable opinion in politics and the media?

Times like these have a way of telling us what kind of a people we are, and what kind of country we shall be.

In liberty,

Ron Paul

I love Ron Paul.

I’m not a Ron Paul fan but I like his thoughts on the great bailout.

God save the Union of We the People

I wish he had won the primaries.

Here is Mikey depicted running away from the truth once again…

Mikey come back Ron Paul really is a doctor. :smiley:

Well Joey the truth is that if Ron had a more reasonable position on foreign policy I might have supported him.

He didn’t make the first cut for me because of his radical opposition to the war.

There, that should clear it up for you. :slight_smile:

That is the exact position that will keep McCain from winning.

You Might Want to Watch This!

Beginning in October 1st Military starts domestic mission. :shock:

Since McCain is favored well above Obama on Foreign policy, I doubt that will be the reason.:roll:

Ron Paul’s WEB site:

It is a serious shame that he did not make it through the primaries. His words above speak volumes about what is to happen with the thievery and incompetence occurring in our government now, and what is yet to come!

Always consider the source.

Nuff Said!

No wonder the NeoConArtist Bush administration is resorting to doomsday pressure tactics to enact this blatant scam. If there is a hell, Bush will most certainly burn there for an eternity.

Can we throw, Barney Frank(D), and Dick Durban(D) in there too?

It would be much easier to say who in DC won’t be going there. :wink:

I meant to say Chris Dodd(D) but Durbin should go too.:wink:

OMG! There is someone out there that gets it!!!
Thank you! http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/36/36_2_68.gif

I just want to add that any republican that is as retarded as the two mentioned should be handed their walking papers as well!

You are welcome to join my club… Vote the Bastards Out, our only rule is to never vote an incumbent back into office, no dues required, no party affiliation necessary.

Better yet, vote both parties out as well. These dumb@$$ Republican and Democrat parties don’t know how to do anything other than prostitute our nation out to lobbyists and how to con voters into voting for them by scaring them about their opponents. And please don’t give me this crap that my vote only counts if it is for the projected leader or the runner up; I consider voting for the lesser of two evils the biggest waste of a vote.
