Rand Paul's Washington Times Column Put To An End Amid Plagiarism Charges

Rand Paul's Washington Times Column Put To An End Amid Plagiarism Charges

Commented Nov 6, 2013 at 16:04:44 in Politics

“No. It was actually post Civil War to WW1. If you look at the numbers-most people arose from poverty and into the middle class during this era. What followed a very long depression, caused by The Fed was a house of cards built on credit, and the petro-dollar. Hence, where we are today.

As far as using government to break up corporations it is almost always political in nature.Government can often be used as a political tool for the establishment to create it's own monopolies. Otherwise known as regulatory capture.”

“"What followed a very long depression, caused by The Fed was a house of cards built on credit, and the petro-dollar" . . yea right "perto dollar" right after WWI . . . .”

“Gary Johnson.

And about your revisionist "robber boron" history ... what period of growth in the US was the most prosperous for the middle class?

Hint: It aint post WW2.”

“actually it was POST WWII when the GI Bill sent millions to college and we built Europe and Asia at the same time becoming the economic powerhouse of the world . . . facts are very hard to deny . . by the way . . . can you explain WHY we had to breakup the Robbers "Trusts"?????”

“Whoa. Glad you know how all Libertarians think genius.

I would counter that by saying that most Libertarians believe the rule of law is sacrosanct, especially if we have limited government regulations to depend on.

Has it ever occurred to you that regulatory capture is most most lobbyists and special interest groups practice in Washington?

Go read a book.”

“so you agree Rand is "no libertarian"???... and agree that "libertarinism" is a failed upper class Victorian Parlor Talk proven wrong by the Age Of Robber Borons???... or can you cite ONE actual libertarain today. ... ??”

“Give the world a break. Some of these are the same groups of professional protestors who get the call from the NYCLU, SWP, CPUSA and line up for the bus to DC on the Lower East Side, Washington Heights and Bed-Stuy here in New York. No doubt the same occurs in most of the large cities. Add the Tea Party and (name your color) supremacists to the mix and you will see where this movement is going. Think their motives are altruistic, think again.”

“Nothing has turned liberals into establishment lapdogs like the last 5 years of this administration.

What happened to all the anti-war, anti-banking, power-to-the-people crowd during the Bush years?

Hey Liberals, The Fed aint our friend.”

RMForbes on Oct 26, 2013 at 14:34:47

“They are not our enemy either but I agree that they shouldn't be a series of hugely powerful private banks running our monetary system. The Fed should be part of the Treasury Department of our federal government. Of course, Rand wouldn't agree to that at all would he?”

“Oh we're still here. But I doubt there are many on the right who'll join the 99%rs and Occupy Wall Street crowd to fight against income inequality and the concentration of wealth and fight to sap the influence of big money in the democratic process. I'm pretty sure whatever anti-bank sentiment that exists on the right is centered on some wild-eyed idea that we're going to return to the gold standard (or something).”

“A PARTIAL audit is all they do. Why not a FULL audit?

A full audit would make some waves, and the public would learn a bit more about what a group of private bankers does with their currency.”

MilesToGo on Oct 26, 2013 at 09:07:19

“Your sentiments are understandable, but banks are private enterprises, serviced by the Fed, a quasi private-public entity. There is never going to be full transparency for the general public. Unless one becomes a billionaire "player," access to the dynamics of such banking will remain opaque.”
