Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press around 1456 inGermany to help spread God's word, so that he could mass producethe Bible and let the common man be freed, of a spiritual nature.This same printing press process (little has changed with theconcept of printing since those days) will be used to press green inkon paper, costing not all that much- they will, as all of wish we hadthe ability to do, simply print that money they are so graciouslygiving us. Say no thank you. Please do not just treat the symptomsif you can cure the problem (why create more debt?!).
So, whatwould Ron Paul perhaps do?Ron Paul would lower taxes
, dramatically, by heavily reducing thesize of our government. When he says it, he seems to really mean itand his record in congress as “Dr. No” for voting against anyspending bills that did not make fiscal sense, is just further reasonto trust him. As he says, "Working Americans like lower taxes. So doI. Lower taxes benefit all of us, creating jobs and allowing us tomake more decisions for ourselves about our lives." In addition toless civil servants, he would bring back the 130 "bases" we havearound the world (unless absolutely needed AND the hostgovernment wants us there), saving us a whooping 1 TRILLIONdollars every year, he would not tax "tips" at all, freeing up muchmore spending power and drastically re-organize or do away withthe Federal Reserve- the very people, printing that money as I typethis. (Mind you, the Federal Reserve is actually owned by mainlyforeign business and individuals, not our government, not you or I-others whom may have different values, ideas or goals than we do.Read Ron Paul's piece on the Federal Reserve, titled "MonetaryPolicy is Critically Important":
Basically, Dr. Paul's plans would very quickly help our economywithout the need to wildly print money, thus creating of course debtand the often un-seen "Inflation Tax." There is much more he woulddo, such as peg the dollar on a "gold standard" like system, keep usout of a degrading NAFTA plan and their plans to scarp the USD tocreate the Canadian, Mexican and American joint currency, theAMERO. He would encourage free trade with all countries aroundthe world and would not impose our ideals on them, unless theyask. Who are we to judge them, to dictate how to do things? RonPaul would truly get to the business of saving us from thispotentially perfect storm. Good thing it is an election year, for that
