Well, you might say that I have come to a juncture in the political road. For the past 24 hours I have wrestled with this and have reluctantly come to a new place on the political landscape. I just posted this on another thread but I will repost it here in case anyone missed it. It you want to excommunicate me from the forum after this, I will completely understand!!
The more I mull this over in my head, the more I am reassessing some of my political priorities.
What is America's biggest threat TODAY? Obama. What is the most dangerous thing at his disposal today? The world monetary system. Why? Because many of the world's economies are on the brink of collapse and that gives an inordinate amount of power to Obama through the IMF and World Bank. Right now Obama can literally bring down the dollar and the American economy. He is currently making promises to foreign nations that cannot be sustained by our debt and economy. He is publicly pulling a bait and switch to our sheeple. He says that we will not bail out Greece or the Euro. But he adds that we cannot afford to let them fail. So, he is directing the IMF to exchange "credit units" with the European Banks effectively allowing a QE of the Euro at the expense of the dollar. Folks, that is OUR tax dollars going to bail out the Euro. We are now going to be forever linked to the collapsing European Union. When it falls, we fall.
Why in Pete's name is the media not all over this story. Why is Congress not intervening on the behalf of their constituents?
I will boldly claim that a President Newt Gingrich would be doing exactly the same thing.
Interesting enough, it is the female leader in Europe that is exhibiting the b*&&s to resist this ploy. Angela Merkel is the only world leader today with the intellectual integrity to not fold under international pressure to rescue Greece, then Italy, and then probably Portugal and Ireland......
IMO, this backdoor acceptance of the European debt on the backs of U.S. taxpayers will be our undoing as a Nation, a Republic, and a free people.
Which GOP candidate today is most likely to tackle this problem head on? It sure as heck won't be Newt, Romney, Huntsman, or Perry. It might not even be Bachmann or Santorum because this is outside of their areas of expertise. So, who is the most knowledgeable about the world monetary system, World Bank, Federal Reserve and other fiscal matters? Who has actually written a book on this subject?
Yep, it's Ron Paul. Is Ron Paul scary to me on many issues? You bet! However, if we implode as a national economy, those issues are somewhat inconsequential. Our world is collapsing around us. Should we be focusing on our national "windows and shutters" or on our crumbling foundation?
It is with much angst and trepidation that I find myself gravitating toward Ron Paul's camp. Why? Beyond the things I have already mentioned above, Ron Paul has been nothing if not consistent in his positions over the decades. He has been consistently unmoved by lobbyists or party pressure from his colleagues. He is totally true blue to his convictions on every front. He knows and fully understand the Federal Reserve and the monetary corruption taking place at it's hands. He has no affinity or affection for any particular foreign power. He consistently puts America's best interests first. He doesn't buy into this garbage that we must financially undergird every other nation.
I know you are all surprised at my statements. Quite frankly, I am surprised too. I never thought I would be saying these things. However, the chain of events in the past week have brought me face to face with the reality of our most vulnerable issue as a nation. As someone once said, "It's the economy, stupid!"
And more specifically it is our dollar being sacrificed to the international monetary system. That is what our economy rides upon - the dollar. How long can we endure as a nation? I don't really know. I'm praying that we can last another 14 months. Right now that seems highly unlikely to me. In 2012 our debt is slated to excede 100% of our GDP.
It would appear that Obama's stars are lining up to fulfill his dreams.
If anyone can shed further light on this looming catastrophe, I appreciate your input.
