Ask your congressman what inflation is? They will probably tell you that inflation is the rising of prices. Wrong! It is caused by the added number of dollars pumped into the economy by virtue of the Fed’s printing it. As more dollars are pumped, more are available for spending. Spending increases exhibiting falsely an increaased demand. Increased demand causes retailer to increase prices. So, while inflation may have as one of it’s results, a rising of prices, it is the artificially increasing of the dollar supply that causes it. As a result one dollar in 1953 was worth 100 pennies. Today that same dollar is worth 3 pennies.
There are few in congress who will understand the economic forces. Ron Paul is one who I believe does understand it.
In the 2008 election I thought of Ron Paul as a oddity from Texas. I paid no attention to his campaign. After losing my ass in the real estate bubble I began studying economic theory and in particular the Austrian Economic Theory. It holds that the free market as the guiding force in all of society. Free is the ioperative word here.
You can claim that the Democrats are right or the Republicans are right, but if you look over the course of history there is little to differentiate the parties. Neither seems to be guided by the “free market” model. Remember, it was Bush who created TARP! So many readily forget that fact and blame Obama. Obama I grant you is arguably the worst president that has held that position, at least during my lifetime. Neither he nor Bush have any clue as to economic theory.
Bottom line???? Please take the time to look into Ron Paul’s campaign. I can’t speak as an expert on his policies but of all I have heard speak, he makes the most sense! Like me, you may want to take issue with his stances on Drugs and on the military spending, but when you look into his rationale, you may be swayed to his point of view.
