There are serious (if accurate, as seems likely) allegations of establishment Republicans' dirty tricks in the selection of Presidential-nominating-conven tion delegates. See http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Ron-Paul-GOP... .

The systematic cancer of credit derivatives, and insurance on speculative instruments is purely a result of failure to regulate. Sure, all the greedy are guilty; but the guilty are less than 1% of your 300 million. The rest of us are the rubes, the suckers.
Failure to regulate.......Problem with that is two fold.
There is way too much regulation now
Wall Street owns the regulators

Doing as Elizabeth Warren suggest simply gives the select few more power. If they own the regulators and write the regulation how does adding more of that give us anything different ?

No, Mr.Bill, its not at all that simple.

The creation of new credit all comes from one source....the Federal Reserve Act. This is the root cause, the regulation is the effects.

230 trillion in debt, it can only be paid with the future earnings of a child not yet born. No other way, its too much for this, or the next several, generations to pay. Only way to do that is with a source of new debt / credit / currency. This institution is not audited and facilitates the enslaving of the unborn, so we can live beyond our means.

The reason is the immoral acts facilitated by debt backed paper notes, and the corporations that grew up around it.

Is it not Mitt Romney's burden to unify the various factions that make up the GOP ?
Who is the presumptive leader ?

If Mitt Romney cannot get the fastest growing, best organized conservative movement in the GOP behind him, is he a leader ?

and who will do it? Romney will not do it. Do you really think that Obama - guy who is backed by all possible speculators just like Romney would do it? Neither Romney nor Obama will do it.They will not reagulate anything. They have another interests: wars, ruling all over the world, money to pockets, money for corporations, hypocrisy, polygamy ( Romney ) and gay marriages ( Obama ). Do you think that they are good presidential candidates? I think not, they are real disasater, who will ruin your country.
The only guy, who could restore and repair and make regulations is just Ron Paul, the only honest, not corrupt candidate in race.
Don't make me laugh. Dr. Paul prefers gold to currency.
He opposes a central bank. He is a financial cave man.

No, Obama is only the lesser of two evils (three if you count Paul, which I don't) and I don't expect much of him.
I would like to see the election funding process reformed, and that would be th first step in reforming our national finances; but I won't hold my breath for that either.

There is a presumption in the above that central banking and currency debasement are modern creations. Central banking is centuries old, and currency debasement millenia. The reason for opposing them, with the only means that have proven effective over time, is that they reliably lead to the downfall or even destruction of nations. And on the way down, that deadly combination leads to panics, recessions, and depressions.

The cavemen are the halfwits who, being presented with garbage in school, fail to doubt or question it, and the shallow critters who, having thus been malschooled, fail to seek something better.

You make an important distinction here, Bill.
You say Paul likes gold over currency.....which is false.
But what you do admit is the currency we have is very much unlike gold. This is an important distinction - our current currency is just paper backed by faith....

Gold is money and has been for over 5 thousand years. Starting about the day after gold was found to have value a non productive elite printed paper that was to be backed by gold - currency.

For the record Ron Paul advocates backing the currency with gold. So in that case your wrong - Paul does not prefer gold to currency he prefers gold backed currency. What we have now is a cabal of bankers printing currency and backing it with the future human action of an unborn child. Theft, pure and simple.

If you claim Paul wants gold over currency is it fair to say Mr.Bill wants to live beyond his means by stealing the future earnings of an unborn child ? In fact that is what we are doing.

A return to the gold standar has nothing to do with anything, except shrinking the money supply to a point where Americans cannot afford anything at all. It is simply crazy, like replacing dimes with rice.

Our weconomy now is due to the lying neo-conservatives moving in Dr Paul's direction.... eliminating regulations of fiscal and corporate dealing.

So, in a way, with Paul in office, we would be far worse off; and American hegemony would be history.

It woulsd alsso be the end of the USA as a working democratic republic, and as a place where citizens live a decent life.

The nearest analogue I can think of is Ebanezer Scrooge's London before his Christmas dream.

After that, crisis reigns.
The Paul delegates wil never vote for anyone but Dr Paul, no matter what.
The GOP cannot nominate a fringe candidate like Paul.
PAUL WILL PLAY HIS END GAME, and he or his son will be the GOP Vice Presidential candidate.
No less.
You read it here.
Don't think so , I bet it is Marco Rubio. And I am glad Paul did not quit, don't like quitters.

Ron Paul’s GOP Battle Reveals Some Truths About Political Parties

When things didn’t go the way the pro-Romney leadership wanted them to go, they simply created a new GOP to replace the old one. That’s what happened in Nevada when Ron Paul supporters managed to gain control of the state’s Republican Party apparatus at the state convention. In response, the pro-Romney and establishment Republican forces broke off and formed Team Nevada which is essentially a shadow Republican party. In addition, by pledging support to Romney, Team Nevada is receiving funding from the Republican National Committee. If all goes as planned on the Romney side, Team Nevada will provide Nevada’s delegates to the Republican National Convention. The duly-elected Ron Paul delegates, who were elected through state and local conventions in Nevada, will be barred from the convention floor.
