To Really ‘Make America Great Again,’ End the Fed!

By RON PAUL

Former Dallas Federal Reserve Bank President Richard Fisher recently gave a speech identifying the Federal Reserve’s easy money/low interest rate policies as a source of the public anger that propelled Donald Trump into the White House. Mr. Fisher is certainly correct that the Fed’s policies have “skewered” the middle class. However, the problem is not specific Fed policies, but the very system of fiat currency managed by a secretive central bank.

Federal Reserve-generated increases in money supply cause economic inequality.

Ron Paul to Trump: Don’t Listen to Neocons!

Don’t need to do this again.

A big hearty AMEN to this! The neocons railed against Rand Paul and then they turned their sights on Donald Trump. No reason the new administration should trust these guys.

Now is a good time for the GOP to make a clean break from the neoconservatives who believe in perpetual war, nation building, and all sorts of big government initiatives on the domestic side. The neocons were originally Dems anyway.

Society Without the State | Speaker Panel: Ron Paul, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, Lew Rockwell, Jeff Deist, and David Gordon (VIDEO)

OK, this is a pure dose of some libertarian/free enterprise white lightning. It’s hardcore and it will blow the minds of many of our statist friends who visit this site. Personally I find these arguments to be pretty much common sense. But the ideas below are not “officially approved” opinions. The video will challenge the thinking of many people. So be warned. (Just a trigger warning for all you socialists out there. For the record many of the great free marketeers in history started as socialists.)

This Election Is A Gift For Libertarians

It really has been for both big “L” Libertarians and for small “l” libertarians. The curtain has been thrown back. We’ve seen the inner machinations of the electoral system. We’ve seen the lying and the deceit and the collusion and the media compliance. Many of us already knew. Some of us had already seen the nastiness first hand. But now my generally apolitical neighbors down the street have seen what’s really going on, and it is opening minds.

Wells Fargo or the Federal Reserve: Who’s the Bigger Fraud?

By Ron Paul

The Wells Fargo bank account scandal took center stage in the news last week and in all likelihood will continue to make headlines for many weeks to come. What Wells Fargo employees did in opening bank accounts without customers’ authorization was obviously wrong, but in true Washington fashion the scandal is being used to deflect attention away from larger, more enduring, and more important scandals.

Why Krugman, Roubini, Rogoff And Buffett Hate Gold

One of the common counters to the call for sound money (a real gold standard) is the quip; “What’s the real golden rule? Whoever has the gold makes the rules.” And then some silly half baked mix of Keynesianism and Marxism usually follows along with whatever the commentor picked up in their Econ 102 course years ago.

But the truth is gold rewards thrift (which many of the ruling economists despise, they want you to spend at all costs) and hard work.

The Trumpillary War Machine Is Bad News

War is very profitable for some. Mostly people at the top, the connected cronies. War is however hell for the innocently bombed and the refugees and the raped and the otherwise victimized in the fog of hell. We should never forget that. War is a very bad thing. Perhaps the worst thing humans can engage in. It is many cases if not most cases an immoral thing. And war should always be a last resort for a civilized country. We used to know this.

Ending With a Whimper: the Political Surrender of Bernie Sanders

Bernie did surrender. As we said before, the collectivist, unionish tendency in the Democratic Party is strong. Those who break from the herd are quickly rejected. If you don’t stay shoulder to shoulder the herd doesn’t want you. You will be exiled. Bernie didn’t want to be exiled. And he didn’t want a challenge for his Senate seat either. So Bernie looked around and decided he didn’t want to leave the herd after all. He bowed his head and fell back in formation.

Bill Kristol: “We Beat Back Ron Paul and Rand Paul” (Right…And this is why the neocons remain in the political wilderness and Jeb got spanked. Because you won.)

The neocons are for big government and wars. Bill Kristol is for big government and wars. The neocons disliked Reagan and celebrated George W. Bush’s massive expansion of the state. They loathe libertarianism and they loathe the Pauls. They quietly like Hillary Clinton who is basically an extension of George W. Bush in many respects. In fact most neocons – most of whom are Bushites – would probably like to see Hillary win this go’round. (Though they can’t say it publicly –

The Keynesians Stole The Jobs

If you really want to understand modern economics, really understand it, read this book.
By Ron Paul
Late last week the markets were shocked by a surprisingly bad May jobs report – the worst monthly report in nearly six years. The experts expected the US economy to add 160,000 jobs in May, but it turns out only 38,000 jobs were added. And to make matters worse, 13,000 of those 38,000 were government jobs!

Former Facebook Workers: We Routinely Suppressed Conservative News

Facebook is a private company and it has a right to do whatever it wishes with its platform. We will also say that Facebook has been an excellent outlet for ACC generally. But the issues presented in the attached article from Gizmodo should be aired and they are of concern. Facebook is a widely trusted brand. Everyone uses it, “liberals,” conservatives, libertarians, everyone. Facebook should seek to maintain this trust. It’s one of the things which makes Facebook such a special and truly great company.
