Ron Paul Strikes Gold

By Chadwick Matlin
Posted Thursday, July 2, 2009 – 4:38pm

Excerpt: “Paul wants to audit the Fed primarily because he wants to destroy it; the audit bill is just the latest chapter in Paul’s lifelong crusade against it. His vendetta is fueled by the belief that the Federal Reserve is unconstitutional, a central bank within a country that doesn’t allow central banks. That the Fed can manipulate the currency and “create legal tender out of thin air” is heresy. And so Paul attempts to dismantle it the only way he can: through legislation.

Thus we come to the audit. For Paul it’s a foot in the door to a much larger goal. To the 244 co-sponsors—74 of them Democrats—it’s a way to show their constituents that they’re worried, too, about where taxpayer dollars are going. It’s an amusing dissonance between the leader of the rebellion and his revolutionaries. The two parties are after entirely separate goals, one (transparency) vastly more achievable than the other (the end of the Federal Reserve).

This again makes Paul’s coalition all the more remarkable. The distrust of the Fed has reached a point at which a majority of House members are following a radical into battle. Congress’ frustration was evident last month when Bernanke got roasted in front of Congress, putting his future as Fed chairman and the health of Obama’s regulatory plan in doubt.”

Self-Defense-June 19, 2009

June 19, 2009

Dear Council Members,

I hope you are all having a restful and relaxing summer.  Even though I
have had conflicts which have caused me to miss the last couple of
Council meetings, I continue to follow developments in our community
through the media and I am as committed as ever to keeping our Town a
great place to live.

Let me begin by thanking you for holding the line on the Town budget and
avoiding a tax increase.  In a year when the economy is in deep
recession and properties are being reappraised by the county (leading to
a de facto tax increase for some citizens) it is more important than
ever for local government to live within its means.  You are to be
commended for tightening the Town’s belt rather than imposing a tax
increase on residents who would have a very difficult time coming up
with the money.

I would also like to thank you for asking the Planning Commission to
review the SROZ zoning put in place by your predecessors several years
ago.  There are good reasons why those council members were recalled.
One is the existence of the SROZ itself, but the second and more
important reason was the arrogant dismissal of the views of their
constituents on the part of those elected officials.  I trust you will
not fall into the same trap.

With that in mind, I would like to share with you my opinion on the bill
recently enacted by our General Assembly in Nashville regarding the
legalization of handgun carry by permit holders in state and local
parks.  Specifically, I strongly urge you not to exercise the “opt out”
provision that (in my opinion) was unwisely included by legislators.

As one of hundreds of thousands of Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit
holders (and one of hundreds in our community), I have demonstrated my
responsibility as a gun owner by taking and passing a state-approved
safety course including classroom instruction on the law as well as a
marksmanship test on the firing range.  I have also submitted to a
criminal background check and have been found to be responsible enough
to be trusted to carry a weapon for defensive purposes in public.  If I
am responsible enough to be approved to carry a weapon in Wal-Mart,
Pruett’s, or (now) O’Charley’s or Friday’s, I feel I am equally as
responsible to carry a weapon in any of our municipal parks.

While I think Signal Mountain’s parks are among the safest anywhere, and
I never feel threatened in our community, I feel the principle of
self-defense rights for law-abiding citizens is important to uphold
everywhere.  The shootings by a crazed gunman at Virginia Tech prove
that no place, however laid-back or pastoral, is immune to violence.  It
is an obvious fact that criminals and lunatics, paying no attention to
the law, will be armed wherever they go.  The only way that sane,
law-abiding citizens can even the odds is to reserve the right to arm
themselves as a deterrent and counterbalance to those who mean us harm.
Even though I rarely, if ever, feel the need to go armed in Signal
Mountain, I often pass through our local community – parks included – on
the way to other, less safe locations.  Disarming me – or other
law-abiding citizens – is not the way to increase overall liberty or safety.

As Thomas Jefferson, the author of our Declaration of Independence and
our third President once said, “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms
… disarm only those who are neither inclined or determined to commit
crimes.  Such laws only make things worse for the assaulted and better
for the assassins; they serve to encourage than to prevent homicides,
for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed
man.”  Jefferson was joined in his sentiments by our first President,
George Washington, who said “Firearms stand next in importance to the
Constitution itself.  They are the people’s liberty teeth (and) keystone
… the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable … more than 99%
of them [guns] by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane
hands.  The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil
interference [crime].  When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour.”

I know that Hamilton County, the city of Chattanooga, and Red Bank have
unfortunately moved to ban the legal possession of firearms in their
parks.  I know it will be politically tempting to follow their lead.
However, their actions are neither wise nor in keeping with the wisdom
of our Founders.  My copy of the Constitution does not say “right to
keep and bear arms, except for local parks.”  Criminals will be armed in
public parks regardless of the law.  I strongly urge you to resist the
knee-jerk impulse to ban legal weapons carry in local parks and uphold
the letter and the spirit of the Second Amendment in our community.

If you have any questions or would like to engage in a more thorough
discussion of this issue prior to acting (or preferably not acting) on
the issue, please feel free to contact me by return e-mail or by
telephone at 423-645-5599.  If there is any other service I can perform
for our community, please know that I am always happy to serve or
participate in any way I can.

Please accept my best wishes and my sincere thanks for your service to
our community.

Best regards,

Joe Dumas

Another Counterfeit Update-via DownsizeDC.org-June 08, 2009

June 8, 2009

D o w n s i z e r – D i s p a t c h


Quote of the Day: “By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.” — John Maynard Keynes Source: “The Economic Consequences Of The Peace”

Subject: Counterfeiting Update

In May of last year the U.S. money supply stood at roughly $834 billion. Now, a year later, the Federal Reserve has created an additional $941 billion out of thin air. Pay close attention to those numbers…

* The amount of new money the Fed has created is roughly $107 billion more than all the money that was in circulation just a year ago
* In other words, the U.S. money supply has more than doubled

Think about what this does to the value of your dollars, to your savings, to your paycheck, to your retirement income? A doubling of the money supply means your money is worth half what it was.

Of course, your money’s loss of value won’t manifest itself overnight. It will take time for the Fed’s counterfeiting to drive up prices. But those who get the new money first will be able to spend it while prices are still low, increasing their wealth at your expense.

The Federal Reserve, as you might expect, promises that prices won’t rise. They claim they’ll withdraw their counterfeit money before that happens. Do you feel comforted? Should we really believe that…

* The Fed can really undo so much counterfeiting
* The attempt to withdraw the counterfeit dollars won’t cause economic disruptions of its own

And if they did sop up their funny money, wouldn’t that mean another “contraction?” …more unemployment? …other sectors in trouble and screaming for a taxpayer-funded bailout?

Our position is simple. If it’s wrong for individuals to counterfeit, it’s also wrong for the government to do it. What we need is money that no one can counterfeit, like gold and silver. Some people want to make this happen by abolishing the Fed. We agree. That needs to happen. But it’s a big step. We think there’s an easier way…

Congress should start by ending the Fed’s monopoly control of money. Congress should permit you to use whatever form of money you prefer. This would…

* Empower the creation of an alternative money system
* Reduce the Fed’s ability to counterfeit by forcing Federal Reserve Notes (FRNs) to compete with honest money
* Make it easier to abolish the Fed once a new money system is fully operational

To make this happen Congressman Ron Paul introduced three “Honest Money” bills in the last Congress (110th). These bills would…

* Repeal the legal tender law that forces you to accept FRNs
* Repeal the federal government’s monopoly over coinage
* Prohibit federal and state taxes on precious metal coins and bullion

These simple changes would allow you to buy and sell using means of exchange other than FRNs. Sadly, Congressman Paul hasn’t re-introduced these bills. If you’re one of his donors or constituents please calls his office at 202-225-2831 and ask him to re-introduce his three “Honest Money” bills, combined as one bill. As for the rest of us…

We should tell our own representatives to ask Congressman Paul to re-introduce these bills, or do it themselves. You can send your instructions using DownsizeDC.org’s “End the Inflation Tax” campaign.

Use your personal comments to tell your representatives that you’ve seen the Federal Reserve’s lastest counterfeiting numbers. Object to the fact that the Fed has increased the monetary base from roughly $844 billion as of May 2008, to roughly $1,775 as of May 2009.

To exceed the 36,512 messages we sent last month we need to send at least 1,651 messages today.

Government Continues To Pee Down our Backs And Tell Us That It’s Raining-June 08, 2009

June 8, 2009

Of course the government continues to undermine the monetary system. It’s been doing it since 1913.

The largest counterfeiter of  currency is the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve notes are fiat (fake) notes that actually reflect negative value. There’s much more value in a tomato seed than there is in a truck-load of counterfeit Federal Reserve notes.

The Liberty Dollars are real money backed by precious metals; the Federal Reserve notes guarantee the enslavement of “The People” via interest due, according to their World Bank protocol. The demise of the Federal Reserve system is the best thing that could happen in this country.

Hello again folks, I have been working on a campaign video that has been consuming my time. I can’t believe it has taken hours and hours of work for a 4 minute and 54 second video. Now that it is complete, I hope to have it on my website, which the website is currently in process to be online soon, thanks to Bryan Haddock.

With all that has been happening with our newly developing government controlled economy, we need to not only look at what the government has been doing but another very important aspect of the economy. That is what I have wrote about many times and that is the reduction of the anti trust laws that govern the size of corporations that control most aspects of the key parts of our entire economy.

Without these laws, that have been relaxed over the past number of years, these huge conglomerates have been able not only to control large aspects of the markets they are in but have huge resources to directly influence, through the governments local, state, and national, the laws which were in place to protect the economy from the very things that are happening. Their self serving laws and deregulation to enhance their financial positions with little to no regards for the economy as a whole, is what has lead up to this current financial disaster.

In order to better understand how the financial system works in our current state of “Capitalism” (this name has become a word for market control, I would rather use the words “Free Enterprise System”) I found this article that gives a very comprehensive outline how the market system really works.

http://sjlendman.blogspot.com/2009/05/manipulation-how-markets-really-work.html

I know this is a blog but with over 25 years of study I have done in the economics behind our political system, this guy is right on. This system has to be changed to be more competitive, competition instills innovation not only in the product or service that is being done but in the costs involved in doing business. Not controlled by the most economically influential, which is the current state of our economic situations.

Say No To Real I.D.-DownsizeDC.org-May 29, 2009

May 29, 2009

D o w n s i z e r – D i s p a t c h


MEDIA NOTICE: Today (Friday), Jim Babka is scheduled to appear on “Straight Talk w/ Jerry Hughes,” starting at 3:05 PM Eastern. Listening details can be found on the DownsizeDC.org blog.

Quote of the Day: “I won’t call it Real ID, I’ll call it enhanced or higher security drivers license.” — Robert V. LaPenta, President and CEO of L-1 Identity Solutions, which stands to be a primary beneficiary of any government scheme for a national ID card

Subject: Tricking Americans Into Real ID

Jim Harper, at the Cato Institute, alerts us to new dangers on the national ID front.

The so-called Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and certain politicians, are trying multiple ways to impose a national ID card on us, even though the American people have made it very clear we don’t want it.

One under-handed scheme started with the passage of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, which requires law abiding U.S. citizens to have either a passport or an enhanced drivers license to cross the Mexican or Canadian borders. An “enhanced drivers license”…

* Is an initiative of the DHS that has NO Congressional mandate
* Will require you to undergo a security interview, pay a fee, and get a new federal ID number (in addition to your Social Security number)
* Has an RFID chip that can be read at a distance, up to 30 feet away, even while it’s in your wallet!

Now things are being rigged to move citizens in the direction of the enhanced drivers license.

The problem starts with the fact that passports are too expensive. The high price gives people an incentive to pay for the enhanced drivers license, which is about half the cost. The Government Accounting Office had already issued a report saying that the $100 price for a passport didn’t need to be that high, but…

Now they’ve raised the price even higher. Representative Paul Opsommer of Michigan suspects the purpose of this is to drive even more people to get the cheaper (but more dangerous) enhanced drivers license.

Please notice that all of this is being driven NOT by Congress, but by un-elected bureaucrats in the DHS and the State Department. But that doesn’t mean Congress is blameless. Congress is doing nothing to reign in the bureaucrats, plus, some are even working to make things worse. For instance…

Something called the PASS Act is being crafted to revive the Real ID concept, under a new name, and companies like L-1 Identity Solutions, which stands to benefit, are almost certainly lobbying hard to make it happen. We must lobby just as intensely in the other direction.

Please send your Congressional employees a message asking them once again to repeal the REAL ID Act.

Use your personal comments to ALSO ask them to…

* Stop the DHS from promoting enhanced drivers licenses
* Make the State Department lower the cost of passports
* Reject all the new forms of REAL ID, such as the PASS Act

We achieved our goal of sending more messages in May then we sent in April, but this issue still needs your attention. We hope you’ll use DownsizeDC.org’s proprietary Educate the Powerful System to send a message to repeal the Real ID Act.
