” The free market economy has been taken for granted by the American people as the dynamic generator of the nation’s vast wealth. Our capitalistic economy is currently being “fundamentally transformed” into a central government-dominated system, threatening the vibrance that has made America the land of opportunity. The following ‘thirteen genius quotes’ display the moral underpinnings of the market economy and dispel some common misconceptions. “

” “All other persons and groups in society (except for acknowledged and sporadic criminals such as thieves and bank robbers) obtain their income voluntarily: either by selling goods and services to the consuming public, or by voluntary gift (e.g., membership in a club or association, bequest, or inheritance). Only the State obtains its revenue by coercion, by threatening dire penalties should the income not be forthcoming. That coercion is known as ‘taxation,’ although in less regularized epochs it was often known as ‘tribute.’ Taxation is theft, purely and simply even though it is theft on a grand and colossal scale which no acknowledged criminals could hope to match.” — Murray Rothbard “
“The odds that Ron Paul would win the Republican Presidential primary this year were always pretty slim. But you wouldn’t
know that from the overheated response one student supporter at Auburn University in Alabama got when he dared to place a sign supporting Paul’s candidacy in his
dorm room window last fall. Perhaps fearing that a wave of Ron Paul mania would sweep uncontrollably over Auburn,
the sign was only up for three hours before officials demanded that student Eric Philips remove the poster from his window, ostensibly for safety reasons. Philips recounts the shameful saga in a new video
from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), where I work. “
”The one missing element in the news stories just put up in respect of the quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve is the comment issued by the one of the individuals who sits directly above Chairman Bernanke in the constitutional pecking order. This is the chairman of the House subcommittee on domestic monetary policy, Ron Paul. He’s none too pleased with the direction in which the Fed is going. “The Fed’s only solution for every problem is to print more money and provide more liquidity,” Dr. Paul said in a statement today. “Mr. Bernanke and Fed governors appear not to understand that our current economic malaise resulted directly because of the excessive credit the Fed already pumped into the system.” “
“This past Friday, the RNC’s Convention Rules Committee voted – after several contentous votes – to change the party’s rules to allow future presidential candidates to have veto power over who can be delegates from any state – in other words, take power away from the grassroots and their ability to elect fellow conservatives as delegates.
This represents a brazen move by several Washington Beltway consultants and party insiders to diminish the power and influence of conservatives over the party.”
Audit the Fed: House Decisively Approves Ron Paul Bill
” Wednesday, the 25th of July, 2012 will be remembered by monetary policy conservatives
from sea to shining sea for its incredible significance. While many could disagree with Ron Paul supporters, one cannot deny their
ferocious commitment to the Constitution, personal liberty, non-intrusive foreign policy, and especially their desire to liberate the US Dollar from the control of a private banking interest, otherwise known as ‘The Fed’.
On the 25th, Ron Paul’s ‘Audit the Fed’ bill finally passed with massive approval from the US House of Representatives with 327-98. This
is no slight win by the margin; this was an incredibly decisive victory, showing the heart of many in the US government. The representatives
of the American people want to take a look inside the shadowy rooms and dust off the books of the Federal Reserve Fractional BankingSystem. Stephen Dinan of the Washington Times reports : “
While we seldom share much sentiment with Dennis Kucinich , in this case we stand on common ground .
” Ohio Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich thanked Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul for his “diligence” in advocating for a bill that would
give the Government Accountability Office the authority to fully audit the Federal Reserve, adding that it is “baloney” to suggest Congress
cannot “touch the Fed.”
The legislation moved through the House Oversight Committee and Government Reform Committee on Wednesday. ”
This is an issue that should have been dealt with ages ago . The FED needs to audited and brought to heel immediately .
“ “When Congress created the Fed in 1913,.Congress delegated specific tasks to it, and Congress remains constitutionally-obligated to conduct oversight over the Fed as a result. The Fed should not be permitted to operate in the dark without oversight by Congress and
accountability to the people.” ”
Support this bill . Call your congressman . Make some noise .
How does one get a job being wrong all the time ? Is that a prerequisite for being a Times columnist ? Oh , I guess pomposity is among the requirements as well .
“Congressman Ron Paul, in a rare head-to-head broadcast confrontation, went up against the Nobel laureate in economics Paul Krugman in an open debate over monetary policy. It was broadcast on the Bloomberg Television, moderated by Trish Regan. Not to put too fine a point on it, Ron Paul won the exchange, so much so that the cameras and moderators just drifted away from Mr. Krugman without so much as a fare-thee-well and left the field to the hero of the campaign for honest money.”

As much as I admire Paul Ryan , his quote deeply disappoints me ,
6. Gary Johnson, the former New Mexico governor and current Libertarian candidate for president, gave his fiancée a copy of “Atlas Shrugged” when they started dating, and told her, “If you want to understand me, read this.”
I told my girlfriend the same thing .
