    Ron Paul Bail-Out Speech Video 12/10/2008

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvFZH_adksc

The US economic model is being shredded along with our constitution. There is clearly a power grab taking place and we the people are funding it with debt that we will never be able to repay. 

The toxic debt and liabilities of large private corporations are being moved from their balance sheet to ours – on purpose. When the system fails, we will be caught holding the bag. The result will be perpetual debt so massive that we will struggle just to meet the interest obligations yet alone pay down any principle. This debt will transcend our generation. 

What is wrong with our society that we allow new born Americans to instantly become enslaved in debt through citizenship?

I’d like to see the entire video but it hangs after 56 seconds. Anyone knows about a transcript?

Ron Paul gets it.

 

He’s been my dream candidate since I first heard about him in the primary.  He was the only candidate supporting actual, substantive CHANGE (to use a catch word).  Obama, McCain, merely different versions of the same ideology.

 You can be brilliant and still be wrong.  I only hope Obama is bright enough to enlist people who understand and can effect some kind of positive transition.  Politicians are that–politicians.  Obama doesn’t have a PhD in economics, he has a JD from Harvard.  At least Ron Paul has studied Austrian Economics and sees the inherit problems with Keynesian theory.

 Right now they’re trying to preserve the status quo at all costs.  It has to completely fail before people will start to look for alternative paradigms.

How is it that Ron Paul seems like the only one who "gets it".

My rhetorical objection is:  What’s wrong with partly or fully nationalising industries?  Better yet, what’s wrong with Nationalism itself?

    Response to: caroline_culbert

You will find many who agree with the nationalization of once private industries- communism or socialism by design. A tenet of our capitalistic system has been that the private sector can better run companies than the government – for example, look at the VA hospitals.

History has shown in the past that capitalism provides greater prosperity and freedom for the people. This is a judgement call and if you prefer the government to own and run our industries, I respect your right to come to that conclusion.

I would not call our current system capitalism as there is far too much manipulation and intervention which is contrary to a free market capitalistic system – it is corrupt.

As far as nationalism – or patriotism, I agree it is a valuable attribute for any society.

Agree, As bad as it will be it is better for it to fail than allowing more of the same old crap. On a brighter side, the sooner TSHTF the better the shape of the planet for those that emerge on the other side. This may just be wishful thinking but tonight it seems so!

Caroline,

I may be off base here but a country with nationalized industry is basically a country whose GDP is owned by the government. That seems like a bad idea if we want a free market society.
