Minimum wage

January 26, 2014

Henry Ford used a manufacturing technique that was relatively advanced for the manufacture of horseless carriages. This technology, like most such advances, allowed and even required a division of labor that dramatically increased the productivity of manufacture, and this in turn allowed for a dramatically lower price for the automobiles he made.

The combination of productivity enhancement (assembly line technology) and sales volume in a free market context (cheaper horseless carriages) combined to allow him to pay enough to hire the workers with the best work ethics.

Of course, being a pretty smart salesman and public relations brain, he made it sound like he paid his workers more to make himself richer. Yeah, right. He also sold you a Brooklyn Bridge. 1908 was also the time of the presidency of the most famous “progressive” president, and so the doublespeak was strong at the time.

Henry Ford only used the lying doublespeak of the left-fascists of the day to promote his car and make it sound more “affordable” than even the technology allowed.

It is no anomaly that South Korea has the 12th largest economy in the world, about FORTY times bigger than North Korea’s. North Korea allows ZERO “unfettered capitalism”. South Korea allows a lot more than the USSA. They started out at the same economic levels at the end of World War Two
http://www.indexmundi.com/factbook/compare/south-korea.north-korea/economy
..Those are numbers that the Keynesians hate and that’s why you never see them talking about it in the left-fascist news cartel sources.

Singapore has one of the lowest tax rates in the world and has the highest per-capita GDP in the world.

Hong Kong with its capitalist success and freedom for doing business (for both poor and rich), that Beijing decided to keep their economic regime (and a lot of the political freedom they had), and even opened more zones to replicate it.

Chile freed the market from a lot of its fetters and chains that had been imposed by the Marxist Allende, and has become the first and so far only Latin American country to join the club of developed nations.it is certainly the richest.

In fact as part of their legislative project to find a way to get free from so much poverty, Honduran legislators and officials invited business executives and government officials from Chile to Honduras to share what they’ve learned. They sent delegations to Hong Kong, Singapore, Chile, South Korea, to learn from their successes, and the special economic zone established by Abu Dhabi.

OF course they learned that you cannot decrease poverty by subsidizing it. You help the poor by letting them enjoy the fruits of their labor and you let them do business as they see fit on a level playing field, and eliminating the confusing maze of rules and regulations that keep them down.

Perversity of Modern White-Collar Criminal Remedies (The Daily Bell)

January 12, 2014

The Daily Bell – Perversity of Modern White-Collar Criminal Remedies:
http://www.thedailybell.com/news-analysis/34906/Perversity-of-Modern-White-Collar-Criminal-Remedies/

This is a fatal disconnect. Washington’s Blog and others seem to assume that if regulation is followed up by aggressive enforcement and incarceration, then honesty will increase and people will be better behaved. But so far as we can tell, it has never been proven to be the case that regulation and authoritarian enforcement cures wrongdoing. It is the history of empires to create a climate conducive to corruption. The corruption is then engaged by the very elements of empire that have nourished the corruption to begin with. Certainly there is wrongdoing aplenty. Here are just some of the recent improprieties by big banks, according to the article:

  • Laundering money for terrorists (the HSBC employee who blew the whistle on the banks’ money laundering for terrorists and drug cartels says that the giant bank is still laundering money, saying: “The public needs to know that money is still being funneled through HSBC to directly buy guns and bullets to kill our soldiers …. Banks financing … terrorists affects every single American.” He also said: “It is disgusting that our banks are STILL financing terror on 9/11 2013″.
  • Financing illegal arms deals, and funding the manufacture of cluster bombs and other arms which are banned in most of the world
  • Handling money for rogue military operations
  • Laundering money for drug cartels. Indeed, drug dealers kept the banking system afloat during the depths of the 2008 financial crisis). A whistleblower said: “America is losing the drug war because our banks are [still] financing the cartels”, and “Banks financing drug cartels … affects every single American”.
  • Engaging in mafia-style big-rigging fraud against local governments
  • Shaving money off of virtually every pension transaction they handled over the course of decades, stealing collectively billions of dollars from pensions worldwide.
  • Manipulating aluminum and copper prices.
  • Manipulating gold prices … on a daily basis.
  • Charging “storage fees” to store gold bullion … without even buying or storing any gold. And raiding allocated gold accounts.
  • Committing massive and pervasive fraud both when they initiated mortgage loans and when they foreclosed on them.
  • Pledging the same mortgage multiple times to different buyers. This would be like selling your car, and collecting money from 10 different buyers for the same car.
  • Cheating homeowners by gaming laws meant to protect people from unfair foreclosure.
  • Committing massive fraud in an $800 trillion dollar market which effects everything from mortgages, student loans, small business loans and city financing .
  • Manipulating the hundred trillion dollar derivatives market.
  • Engaging in insider trading of the most important financial information.
  • Pushing investments which they knew were terrible, and then betting against the same investments to make money for themselves.
  • Engaging in unlawful “frontrunning” to manipulate markets.
  • Engaging in unlawful “Wash Trades” to manipulate asset prices.
  • Manipulating corporate bonds through derivatives schemes.
  • Otherwise manipulating markets.
  • Charging veterans unlawful mortgage fees.
  • Helping the richest to illegally hide assets.
  • Cooking their books.
  • Bribing and bullying ratings agencies to inflate ratings on their risky investments.
  • Violently cracking down on peaceful protesters.

And yet … at least some of what is mentioned above is questionable from a criminal standpoint. Things like market manipulation, wash trades, frontrunning and other “crimes” are a function of a marketplace that has gotten too large and in which too many titanic firms trade. They simply can get away with more, and it is impossible to police much of what is taking place.

The solution is to reintroduce competition and let customers themselves sort out the “bad guys.” Unfortunately, regulations and judicial fiat make this almost impossible. The competitive market cannot perform its curative function. In its place we have regulatory democracy and occasional prosecutions.

The real problem is not “criminality” but bigness and most importantly state-enforced bigness. Let us ask: Where does this bigness come from? In fact, it comes from the state enforced immunity of corporate personhood. Wall Street firms, like large corporations everywhere, provide virtual immunity from consequences for those who manage them.

When one works for the state these days, one can use the threat of terrorism to repel accusations of almost any criminal or violent act while in Leviathan’s employment.

Similarly, corporate personhood inoculates those at the top of corporations from the consequences of their actions. They are usually not sued. They are certainly not jailed. The corporation itself – with its overflowing coffers – is subject to the “punishment.” And everyone moves on. -

Aaron Task writes disinformation spin for the Fed

January 26, 2012

Here’s where his article appears at yahoo:

No, the Fed Does NOT ‘Print Money’: Just Explain It:

http://finance.yahoo.com/blogs/daily-ticker/no-fed-does-not-print-money-just-explain-150433185.html

This is from the “Give Me A Break” Department.

In the third paragraph, the guy couldn’t help but let slip why they are publishing this article now, probably setting the stage for a bit of another illusionist’s deceit it their bag of tricks to save the rigging somebody apparently set up for the election.

All you guys who are in your first class of Economics and Finance They Never Taught You in School, who are asking “what somebody?”, either keep your dial tuned to this station, or, just simply Follow The Money!

Hey! When Ron Paul talks about “printing money“, everybody that supports him ALREADY KNOWS he’s talking about MONEY SUPPLY, not printing presses!

Here’s LOOKING AT YOU, AARON TASK! —AND YOU KNOW THIS!

In fact, Ron Paul took note during a congressional hearing once that the Fed has stopped publishing their estimates of what they call “M3 money supply” which Aaron Task knows is more what Ron Paul is talking about when he says “printing money”, saying they could not estimate the figure anymore with sufficient accuracy. Ron Paul rightly observed that it’s a good guess that their real reason is that Americans would be shocked at the figures.

All the manipulations that Mr. Task listed that the Fed does to control the real money supply, that is what they do.

BUT HERE IS WHAT AARON TASK DELIBERATELY LEFT OUT, because I think he knows a little more than he is explaining, so I will “just explain it”.

The Fed DOES put out dollars in circulation now with electronic entries authorities by the selected persons at the Fed, and Quantitative Easing is exactly what is meant by “printing money”, meaning putting dollars into the money supply (now mostly electronic transfers anyway), which has the same effect as printing press dollar production, only worse and faster.

If buyers around the world were not eating up all this cash by using it to buy Treasury Bonds and other means, the dollar would have crashed a long time ago.

The big money players around the world have lost confidence in the stability of the dollar, and the “full faith and credit of the United States” has lost its polish, and even the guys in charge of the American economy (the administration) and the guys in charge of manipulating our money (the Fed) and the central banks around the world, have said they need to study a transition to another worldwide currency.

But they are already married to the dollar, they have gobs and gobs of dollars, and they want to get their money’s worth, so they are riding out the dollar, this “green paper pig”, a  balloon they know is about to go bust, while they work out how to do it. And whatever deal they cut, we all know that what they have in mind is making Americans pay, the American economy. They may market it here in the USA as a “tax on the rich”, but they know it will be our blood, sweat and tears they will  require.

The only presidential candidate telling the truth to the American people about all this is of course RON PAUL. The detractors are committing big sins of omission, in what they are NOT saying, what they are hiding from you. (Here’s looking at YOU, Aaron Task).

And the truth is, that every increase in the money supply is grand theft larceny from the pockets of the poor and the middle class. That’s inflation, a word that does not do justice to the value it robs from the dollars the poor use to buy food and gasoline and pay rent. This is the kind of deceitful theft that the Bible calls a “false balance”. The “false balance” was what merchants of old used to cheat their customers, like pretending they were selling you a pound of wheat when the stone they used in the balance was actually lighter than a pound and the buyer was getting less that he was told.

Proverbs 11:1 “A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight.” (Proverbs 11:1).

John 8:32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

 

Spirit Airlines leads protest against government requirement to hide taxes in your air fares

January 25, 2012

My question:Where are the other airlines? Why are they missing in action? AWOL, because we expect them to speak up for themselves AND FOR THE LITTLE GUY.

http://consumerist.com/2012/01/spirit-airlines-says-that-posting-full-airfares-is-governments-way-of-hiding-taxes.html

That’s why the VAT tax is so bad, too. The buyer doesn’t know how much of that price retail is taxes that the consumer himself is paying. Note: meaning it’s a way for some “liberal” countries to tax the poor by stealth.

It’s the same kind of idea as the new requirements on airlines, a tax on each step of the manufacturing process, where the final retail price includes all the taxes but unlike the sales tax, there’s no way the retailer usually knows how much is tax.

 For a brief few weeks at least here in Miami, one could see a sticker at the gasoline pump that said so-and-so percent of your price goes to federal, state and local taxes. It didn’t last, they probably made that illegal too. But it’s a LOT of taxes that get paid out of your fill up.

 Another stealth tax, more insidious maybe than just requiring airlines to hide the tax, is inflation. Until recently most people haven’t thought about it.

When the central bank in Honduras  –or the Federal Reserve in the USA– adds money to the money supply in circulation, it means more money chasing after the same production of goods and services. They increase it by lowering interest rates, or sometimes by just rolling out the “printing presses”, like the Fed did with QE1 and QE2. Of course it’s electronic entries nowadays. And as part of TARP, the Fed created more supply for Europe, as exposed when Congress finally forced the Fed to tell who they gave money to.

But the “member banks” get the first dibs on “new money“, presumably it works that way in Honduras too. Their biggest and best clients get it next, and so on. It’s “trickle down inflation” where the prices are driven up but the CONNECTED rich get it first, the ones with their buddies in power and in the central banks. Prices go up before the poor see any of the extra new money, so when they go to the store their money buys less.

It’s a devaluation of the money right out of the pockets of the poor and middle class, it’s grand theft larceny, and it’s also a hidden tax. Government gets to look good with programs for the poor that they finance by robbing them by devaluation of their money.

That’s why the famous old saying “Give me control over a nation’s currency and I care not who sits on the throne”.

Establishment economists do what they’re paid to do, denounce gold standard

January 21, 2012

“rawstory” delivered up a story from AFP about a “panel” of 40 economists, “bipartisan” they said and repeated (oh yeah?), that denounced the idea of returning to a gold standard. They used the word “bipartisan” while they also mentioned that the other candidates are feebly echoing Ron Paul‘s support for a gold standard:

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/01/18/economists-pan-idea-of-new-us-gold-standard/

AFP was pathetically backwards wrong on the Honduras situation in 2009, so I’m not surprised they repeat this globalist neo-conservative disdain for using money of genuine intrinsic independent value.

And “bipartisan” my rear end! as the expression says it. How stupid do you guys think we are? Go back to your Money 101 class, even Keynes bow to “full faith and credit of” clause, it’s a Keynesian trade secret.

What people need is a medium that is immune to the political whims of bankers like the ones that own the Federal Reserve, like gold. They can’t manipulate its worth, which these Master Manipulators think is a bad thing.

When the Fed increases the money supply, it’s the big banks that get the big dollars first, and that means they and their best and biggest clients the biggest corporations can use it to multiply their own record profits. Now with more money floating around prices go up because they chase after the same production of goods and services, ==> and that is the ROBBERY BY STEALTH that is fiat currency.

These are “experts” blessed by the political rulers to give their religious blessing. It’s an “opiate for the masses” so the blind can lead the blind into the ditch.

Ron Paul is right. Golden Rule Government is the best for all of us, the poor most of all.

 

Glenn Beck is losing credibility, Ron Paul knows his subject

Ron Paul's blimp

This does not pass the smell test:

http://www.wnd.com/2012/01/glenn-beck-ron-paul-backers-threatened-my-life/

This sounds like the media playbook that pretended it was a Ron Paul supporter that said “Let him die!” when a moderator asked him about somebody without insurance that died of cancer.

I told my brother I thought it was most likely somebody who did not like Ron Paul yelling that.

And that was the Ron Paul who treated such cases in his private practice free of charge when they could not pay, and worked for a while at a Catholic hospital that treated for free many patients who could not pay.

Nowadays, the people who were generally treated for free before, now get Medicare and Medicaid, so the demagogues can now say there’s all these people who depend on it. Blah blah. How much wealth would be freed up if you eliminated the zillion-dollar federal “health care” bureaucracy?

Now Glenn Beck wants to discredit Ron Paul by saying this crap? And why is HE the ONLY one supposedly getting all these “death threats”?

I’ll bet you, there are so many trillions of corrupt dollars at stake for some interests it would surprise me greatly if it is Ron Paul who was not getting death threats!

So big deal, Glenn Beck! And go have your logic examined for reality!

The thing you say is crazy about Ron Paul’s perspective on the Middle East is the same thing the CIA experts on the subject are saying, that American meddling has a blowback principle.

What, you think American bases on Saudi Arabian soil doesn’t irk some Saudis and Arabs? How about an Arab whose grandfather or cousin  was killed in Deir Yassin? You don’t think American support for Israel would not bother Arabs?

We Americans complain about United Nations authorities telling us what to do here.

And why not try the same thing that worked for so long in American foreign policy, the Founding Fathers version, be friends with all with entangling alliances with none. How about that? Speak softly but carry a big national defense stick?

Like the respected international security analysis company Stratfor said when we went into Afghanistan, they predicted this too. They said if the USA goes in and overthrows the Taliban and chases al Qaeda into the nooks and crannies and then gets out and leaves it to the Afghans, they would be able to declare a victory and destroy their credibility, as in “Don’t tread on me”, and don’t mess with this tiger.

But instead, they made al Qaeda into this big evil monster that was going to overthrow the United States of America and take us over if we didn’t invade Afghanistan and Iraq and suspend the Fourth and Fifth Amendments with the Patriot Act and put out yellow and red threat alerts and check our genitals at the airports.

Give me a break! It would be a comedian’s laugh line if it weren’t such a real threat to us!

Our biggest threat right now to our freedoms is our own federal government and a looming unconstitutional police state that has full arbitrary confiscatory powers over all our production, it’s not those Arabs, jihad or no!

Rather than paying to have troops in 150 countries around the world in 900 bases with money we do not have, better to have them spend their money here and strengthen national defense here at home, protect our own borders instead of Afghanistan’s, use the savings from cutting out useless and burdensome federal bureaucracies to pay for the nuclear submarines (which Ron Paul strongly supports).

And that way they will have to take notice: You attack us here, or you attack our ships carrying freight or passengers, we will not hesitate to defend ourselves…

And hey Glenn Beck! Since when does a Mormon oppose the Golden Rule?

Outrageous EPA abuses against the Sackett family (and all of us, make no mistake)

January 11, 2012

 

More outrageous bullying from the mini-dictators of the EPA.

A blatant violation of the Constitution by federal government bureaucrats. A seizure of property and orders to spend money on property without due process.

http://www.wnd.com/2012/01/supremes-epa-actions-outrageous/

They were only able to take this on with the help of the Pacific Legal Institute, but what about the rest of the country?

And they say there are a lot of other people coming forward with similar stories of persecution by mini-dictators.

I was at one meeting here in South Florida in 1999 where a number of people told of being forced to give up property in the area of the Everglades by federal bureaucrats. This was under a federal program that supposedly set up to buy property being voluntarily sold by owners.

But it wasn’t voluntary. Bureaucrats acting under the cloak of environmentalism, to get a sale at way under fair market value, were threatening to condemn the property, and enforce other arbitrary measures to get “compliance”.

Remember Cardinal Neumoller’s warnings. When they came for other groups, “I did nothing”, he said, listing out the victims of the Nazi regime‘s brutalities against the handicapped, the Jews, the Gypsies, the Communists, the socialists, and when they came for Christians, “there was no one left to defend us”.

What are you going to do?

God is not going to let these abuses go on forever, and history will tell on us, it will tell what we did and what we did not do to defend freedom.

The Good Samaritan helped the victim at the side of the road.

We are all now the victim on the side of  the road, and we are all being called to be Good Samaritans.

 

 

Michael Savage loses credibility and respect attacking Ron Paul

January 9, 2012

Michael Savage has had my respect for a long time because he calls the corrupt powers-that-be for what they are and has exposed the complicity of Republican Party hacks with the dismantling of America. But with his unwarranted and misguided attacks on Ron Paul, he has lost a LOT of credibility. He knows he has a lot of Ron Paul listeners, so he doesn’t go crazy wild, and he hasn’t gone into the personal lies that some of the shills have put out on him, so give him credit for that. Except for when he said Ron Paul hates Jews. Michael Savage KNOWS that Ron Paul does NOT hate Jews, and I say that because I cannot believe Michael Savage is stupid or ignorant, because he’s not. It’s hyperbole, sure, but it’s not a fair thing to say either.

Savage: Romney can’t stop Obama:  http://www.wnd.com/2012/01/savage-romney-cant-stop-obama/

He says Romney is in over his head, but when Savage criticizes Ron Paul foreign policy or his views on the crazy drug wars, Savage is the one in over his head.

The CIA says we get blowback for meddling in the affairs of regions like the Middle East, the head man who was in charge of tracking down Osama bin Laden said it. Active military personnel are saying it. A great number of retired military officers are speaking out this way, when Conformist Media gives them a chance.

Foreign Aid? Ask almost anybody from a poor country whether foreign aid given to their governments has helped in the decades it’s been given.

What about the Jews? Meet the “Jews for Ron Paul” Facebook page:  http://www.facebook.com/JewsForRonPaul

And hear the fresh voice from an Israeli settler, none more Jewish and none more pro-Israel: http://settlersofsamaria.org/vote-ron-paul-free-israel/

…And take special note of what he said about what we can do with our “help”. He was ecstatic at finding a presidential candidate who actually finally offered to set Israel free of American aid and to unleash them to settle their own affairs with their neighbors instead of interfering (“Let us take care of Iran”, he says)

I first got interested in the whole freedom movement when I heard that Ron Paul wanted to end all foreign aid, including to my country, Israel. This seemed like a spectacular idea to me. I hate the idea of taking American tax payer money I don’t need. The only reason we take it, by the way, is not because we need it. It’s that we don’t want to feel alone, and Jews always feel a deep existential isolation and loneliness. “As I see them from the mountain tops, gaze on them from the heights, this is a people who dwells alone, not counted among the Nations,” says Balaam of the People of Israel in Numbers 23:9. We still feel that loneliness. So we take the money. It’s shameful, it’s theft, it’s destructive, it’s morally wrong, and it makes people hate us for tying them into a conflict they have no business trying to solve. I wanted it to end and didn’t trust any Israeli leader to give it up on his own, so I looked up more about Ron Paul.

What I found was fascinating. On the forums, I learned of people who, back in ’08, literally gave their lives short of death to this man. Some poured money into his campaign they could not afford to give, and some even lost their marriages because of their single-minded insane dedication. This shocked me. I couldn’t yet understand it, but after a few days of listening to him, it began to click.

What is it about Ron Paul that inspires such extremes? Such maddening support on the one hand, and such fear and loathing on the other? I can give the answer in one word: Soul.

The essential soul of a human being is by definition free. The idea that men are free as determined by God is a concept that is foreign to most men. This is because most men want to control others, to take away their freedom. This is usually referred to as the drive for power. The drive for power is antithetical to freedom because power means the ability to control others. There is only one legitimate thing that power can and should be used for, whether it be military, legislative, or executive power. That is, to legalize freedom.

Ron Paul doesn’t want to be President to “give” me freedom. He doesn’t own my freedom and he didn’t give it to me. The only reason Ron Paul wants to be President is to stop punishing people for using their freedom that is rightfully theirs. He wants no power. This is clear to anyone who listens to him speak.

Republican Insider: GOP Establishment Planning To Subvert Iowa to Prevent Ron Paul Win

January 4, 2012

From January 3rd:
http://www.prisonplanet.com/republican-insider-gop-establishment-planning-to-subvert-iowa-to-prevent-ron-paul-win.html

The web page includes a video with a Republican Party insider in Iowa boldly proclaiming the kinds of tricks that party leaders were going to use to make sure that Ron Paul would not come out in first place in Iowa.

The host of the show refers to state GOP insiders showing “great concern” that Ron Paul is performing well in Iowa because they fear a Paul win would undermine Iowa’s position as being the first Republican primary. He implies that influential members of the Republican establishment within the state are offering sweetheart deals to prominent voting blocks in key swing districts in order to “sway” the result and ensure Ron Paul doesn’t win.

Despite the fact that this is brazenly unethical and, if bribery was involved, without doubt illegal, the host dismisses such conduct as “just politics”.

“Is it possible that the party apparatus here could be silently asking those District Chairmen to start swaying some important caucus members over to the anti-Paul side which may end up being Santorum…do you see a scenario like that happening,” he asked Benkie.

“I’ve talked to the party officials, I know they’re concerned about it,” said Benkie, adding, “Ron Paul doesn’t do us any good in Iowa, doesn’t do the country any good, will never get there, so let’s figure out what we need to do.”

Benkie said that the GOP establishment was concerned about splitting the vote between Santorum and Romney because it could increase the chances of a Ron Paul win, remarking, “We really don’t want Ron Paul to win.”

There you have it. They MSM is yapping about where is the “stop-Romney” candidate, but it’s Ron Paul they’re really worried about.

What are they afraid of? A genuine cut to the budget instead of an increased budget that cuts some of the increase? Bringing the troops home to the bases here at home and to the borders? An end to the inflationary poor-robbing money printing of the Fed and the officers it gets from Wall Street? An end to these wars that have done nothing for American interests except for some corporate interests?
A return to the Constitution to measure legislation and executive action?

December 30, 2011

Here is my answer to one or another hysterical anti-Ron Paul rant:

Ron Paul is the anti-racist:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pTgp3vF-eM

What other candidate promises to stop the federally pushed total institutional racist war on drugs, which puts up to 5X more blacks into prison per arrest rate that whites? And who is the one blasting the racist drug laws that by law and by judicial decision make much more brutal sentences.

This is all a distraction from the real issues that are attracting people of all kinds and backgrounds to Ron Paul’s cause. Anti-gay? I’ve met enthusiastic gays at Ron Paul rallies. Blacks? I’ve won blacks over the cause who asked for extra issues cards to give to their own friends. As soon as awareness of what Ron Paul stands for reaches critical mass among blacks, it’s all over for Obama.

Freedom brings all kinds of people together to support Ron Paul’s message and platform: blacks, whites, Latinos, rednecks, anarchists, former mainstream Democrats, former mainstream Republicans, gays, straights, atheists, Bible-thumping preachers, liberal theologians and conservative theologians, more soldiers than the other candidates, women, men, feminists, strippers and prudes, gun owners, business owners, technologists, software engineers and lawyers, corporate executives and blue collar workers, almost anything you can think of except for crony capitalist supporters and socialists who want more government power!

He is against the institutional racism of the drug laws and the drug wars.

He is the one we can count on to stop the mad rush to use the American military to enforce goodness on the world.

He is the one admitting the failure of American interventionist policy around the world.

His policies would return the nation to a truly strong national self-defense. The United States is sgoing broke and its military is about to crash and burn against the wall of economic catastrophe brought about by fiat currency with no independent value. Bringing the soldiers home to bases, and there is plenty of room for them on US soil, would mean spending that money at home and soldiers to protect our borders. Releasing the oil that has been banned by fiat would release the country from sovereignty-killing dependence on foreign imports.

Besides which, this is no pansy for abuse by those who would interfere with trade by Americans. Citizens could feel safer abroad. He excoriated Congress and the President for their neglect of the constitutional use of letters of marque and reprisal, rewards for those who kill or capture anyone who after Congressional debate is determined to be a real threat to American interests.

I think Somali pirates would take note. A letter of marque and reprisal for someone who was attacking US merchant ships for ransom might have to face an army of his own kind of pirates seeking the reward money. You think that’s ugly, you should see the army of the kind of people our most respected district attorneys use for informants.

So President Paul that got his wish list, at least at the federal level, would mean the end of institutionally racist drug laws, savings from the end of ineffective drug wars, a MUCH stronger national defense, a MUCH stronger currency, a MUCH stronger economy, MANY more resources for the multitude of charities helping the poor from the spillover of a much richer nation, and a population much less afraid of government abuse.
