Ron Paul in answer to the idea that “the house is already on fire and we need to put water on it”: “You’re correct, the house is on fire- you think we’re putting water on it. I think we’re putting kerosene on it.”
In this video, Dr. Paul cuts to the chase by pointing out that Obama is really making an argument for more and bigger government, while attempting to camouflage it behind fanciful (perhaps one could say “Orwellian”) rhetoric.
Though it seems to fall on deaf ears, Dr. Paul continues to drive home the fact that central planning does not work and that it’s time to liquidate the bad debt.
Dr. Paul continues to try and educate his fellow Congressmen regarding Israel, Palestine, how Hamas came into being and why we should never have gotten involved in the first place.
Surprised that Dr. Paul didn’t make it to the recent hearing Congress had with the automaker CEOs, Neil Cavuto questions Congressman Paul about the impending auto industry bailouts. Dr. Paul’s answer as to why he wasn’t there-
“I know all the answers they’re going to give me, and they’re not going to entertain a serious approach to what they ought to be doing.”
The 2008 Mises Institute Supporters Summit
The Gold Standard Revisited
This past weekend was a chance for many of the Mises Institute’s supporters to get together, get familiar, and get updated on the Austrian tradition’s interpretation of recent events.

Here is an excerpt from a letter that he recently sent out to his supporters.
Dr. Paul laments Greenspan’s departure from the free market principles he once stood for and what effect the November election will have on the future of the Republican party.
You know that I don’t mince words and I don’t back down in fighting a federal government that has far exceeded the confines of our Constitution. I could use some help in the House, and that’s why I’m asking you to support my friend Tom McClintock.
You may remember when he stood up to the liberal Republican establishment in California and took on Arnold Schwarzenegger during the recall election in 2003. This guy will stand and fight, and we need him in the Congress. Tom has said that he expects our federal government to protect our borders and to preserve our individual freedoms as Americans. And beyond that, he wants it out of our pockets, away from our families and out of our faces. That’s my kind of candidate.
