Michael Steele picks up a copy of Ron Paul’s “End the Fed” at CPAC
Liberty Maven ^ | 2/21/2010 | Marc Gallagher

Posted on 02/21/2010 7:41:46 PM PST by Pan_Yan

Michael Steele, Chairman of the RNC, visits Ron Paul at the Campaign For Liberty booth at CPAC 2010 to pick up a copy Paul’s most recent book, “End the Fed“.

I wonder if Steele voted for Paul in the Straw Poll? Nah… couldn’t be, or could it?

Yes, Steele is so clueless he has fallen for the “Ron Paul started the Tea Party movement” lie.

I don't know about Paul's book, but I recently read "The Creature From Jekyll Island", about the Fed.

Long book, but it explains the history of central banking, and the loathing our founders had for it.

Fiat money, fractional banking, and many other monetary concepts/tricks are made easy to understand.

The central banks are far more likely to cause the loss of our independence and freedom than any other dangers we face.

I urge you all to read it, and consider where our priorities should lie.

I’m confused. I hear that Ron Paul won the straw pole, and there was a lot of booing and hooting and hollering in the crowd. My question is, who the hell voted for him at CPAC?
Why would the crowd be booing if they were the ones doing it?

Apparently there were 10,000 people at CPAC and only 2,400 voted in the straw poll.

Oh come on. With the fed telling us all how much money there is, and thereby setting the value of our money, do you not think they’re in charge already? It doesn’t take a Ph.D. in Economics to see that a gov’t collusion with a central bank that can just print money is a really bad idea. How are they going to cover the deficit in the tax income with they’re social spending? By printing money of course! If there are polar opposites on this earth its a central bank and a free market. Michelle Bachmann was one of the first on board with RP’s Audit the Fed bill. Is she a “kook”?

"End the FED!!! and put Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in charge!!! Brilliant idea."

G. Edward Griffin, author of "The Creature..." explains how central banking has allowed progressive politicians to persue their goals by providing unlimited funds/credit. They cannot plunder our treasure without this assistance. Only a fiscal policy grounded in REAL money, as REQUIRED by the Constitution, can stop our slide into one-world oblivion. "

A bunch of college aged Paulites hijacked the straw poll and no one paid attention to the scam going on.

I saw a bunch of these Paulites at a town hall.They were a sneaky bunch and were linked to these environmental wackos groups. They have done this type of crap before.

If the FED did not exist, then you could not have a welfare state, you could not have the Gov’t owning car companies, you could not have unfunded etitlements. Imagine if the US Govt could not sell its Trillions in debt to the Fed this year? There would be NO talk of Obamacare, NO TARP, NO Stimulus.

Kill the Fed, and you kill the modern Democrat Party.

I witnessed the two groups working together at two Lungren town halls in North Cal and witnessed the same crowd at a SF rally near my in laws home.

Frankly , most of these people were lefties whom seem to be using Ron Paul as a cover to screw with conservatives at the town hall meetings.

Fractional reserve banking, has thus far been the most generous of systems to create wealth. The actors involved in the creation of Jekyll Island, at the time, controlled 75% of the world’s wealth. JP Morgan et al provided the system that the electorate is destroying.

Why are Senators popularly elected? Why are government employees unionized? These real world examples have nothing to do with bankers or Israel. They are easily changed politically, if we convince enough to do so.

I think these Paulites are taking a page out on how the Obama brown shirts playbook on how they took over the dem party state caucuses.
These Paulites need to be watch for their next PR antics because most of them are just Radical leftists using that old fool Ron Paul as a Ruse to screw up the GOP events.

"Fractional reserve banking has thus far been the most generous of systems to create wealth."

Ohhh nooo....IT DESTROYS WEALTH through the hidden tax called inflation.

Who pays for inflation??? Hint...it ain't the central banks nor the Gov't.

Why is a 1940's dollar worth about 4 cents today? Every bit of that 96 missing cents is inflation, paid for by people who had no idea what was happening.

The Fed manufactures money out of thin air, with the blessing of our elected representatives.

What other provisions or the Constitution do you reject? And why do you consider JP Morgan and his cartel superior to T. Jefferson & Co.?

Have you ever seen this handbook used by the so called Ron Paulites.

Like I said just radical leftists that took over the voting .

Agree and excelent video. E Edward Griffin put it together very nice.

I’m amazed at all the supports of the Federal Reserve that do not even understand it. Unfreaking believable!

B.S. Paul has known its a fraud from day 1. Don’t even make up pathetic B.S.

It was Republicans, like McCain, that supported it.

They were so obnoxious at a Tea Party in my small town on May 9th, the ladies who organized it said never again. No more Tea Parties. They came from out of town, ragged on the GOP and tried to sell LP stuff. One was a zombie. Real impressive watching him lecture grandmothers on drug legalization and libertarianism

Yeah well ... Everyone knows the Republicans are trying to takeover the tea parties.

What have the Republicans in congress done for you lately? All I can think of is compromise to leftist ideas. It took the Russians to end the environmental movement, and not these pro environment Republicans like McCain, Newt and Mitt Romney.

The tea parties are people pissed off with the Republican party in congress, and some with the democrats. Primarily former Republicans.

They were bashed until elections happened. Now the Republicans are trying to take it over.

They organized them. Libertarians came into my town, as I mentioned, and trashed ours. There aren't enough Ron Paul people/Libertarians in the country to stage one decent Tea party much less the hundreds if not thousands which have been held.

59,934,814 people voted GOP in 2008.

That is over 100 times the number who voted Libertarian.

The only way a movement this large could happen is by Republicans doing it.

Look at the overwhelming support the military gets at the TPs. Looks at the strong position on national defense at the TPs. Those aren't Ron Paul supporters. Those aren't libertarians.

Actually the military is the Ron Paul's biggest supporters. I was just reading about it the other day. I did not know that either.

Nevertheless, I held my nose and voted for McLame in 2008, but I'm not a Republican. I know a lot of people in the same boat.

You can rest assure the Republicans had nothing to do with the tea parties. If they did, then the Republicans would not be worried about them.

The tea parties are conservatives, objective independents and objective democrats that are tired of seeing the Republican party cave to the democrats all the time.

Can you believe the Republican party had the audacity to ask me how I think they should vote on various issues? For instance, the questions were about the environment, and TAX issues. Unbelievable!

As the LP got just over half a million votes in 2008 and Ron Paul himself gets a fraction of the GOP vote, most of the military must be Ron Paul supporters then.

I am talking about today and NOT 2008 election. I read it... I want to say it was the Wall Street journal, but I can’t say for sure. Just read about it the other day.

It was news to me too.

For some strange reason, Rue Paul always wins straw polls. The fix is in. His supporters are as crazy as he is.

The Fed (the Third Bank of the United States) is ending itself.

Just give it a few more years.

What's upsetting is that no one has a plan to start a system of constitutional money.

If you knew anything about the history of the Fed, you’d know that the “progressives” loved the whole notion of the Federal Reserve and hated any tie of the dollar to hard currency - specifically because it thwarted their dreams of a European-model welfare state.

The Fed is under the control of our elected reps. They can abolish it tomorrow. If the wealth has been destroyed, how is it that the standard of living increased since the Fed was created?

By your “Al Gore” standard he also sounds like a young Clarence Thomas, George Bush, or Bill Bennett (Janis Joplin’s former boyfriend).

In your world, Clarence Thomas, George Bush, and Bill Benett blame America for 911 and wants to surrender to AlQaeda? "Jenjis Kahn" and all of that other Al Gore crap to you!
