Economics Experts Endorse Ron Paul: Military Security Requires Financial Security

"What if we discover, too late, that we can’t afford this war-- and that our policies have led to a dollar collapse, rampant inflation, high interest rates, and a severe economic downturn?"--Ron Paul, 1/26/2005, warning us 3 years ago of today's recession, inflation, dollar collapse, and global credit crisis

"Ron Paul...is the only one that I’ve seen in American politics that seems to have a clue."--Jim Rogers, Quantum Fund, on the US dollar, international finance, and the global economy

“Ron Paul is the real deal, a true statesmen and citizen politician in the traditions envisioned by the framers of our Republic.”--Peter Schiff, Euro Pacific Capital, Inc.

"Great countries do not fall because they have a weak military. Great countries fall because they have weak economies and currencies."--Ron Paul, 2/5/08, Charleston West Virginia caucus

The mighty American Abrams tanks and aircraft carriers will turn to rusting hulks if we continue to ignore our finances.

Osama bin Laden's real strategy is not military or terrorist but economic and financial.
  • The British Empire thrived through its financial management which enabled it to outspend and outlast enemies. It collapsed when the economic burdens of its imperial overtretch collapsed its finances.
  • Ronald Reagan succeeded in bankrupting the Soviet system while avoiding too many imperial, nation-building drains on the United States.
  • Osama bin Laden's strategy to defeat the United States is the same policy that felled the British and Soviet empires, bankruptcy.
"We are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy. Allah willing, and nothing is too great for Allah," bin Laden said in the transcript. He said the mujahedeen fighters did the same thing to the Soviet Union in Afghanistan in the 1980s, "using guerrilla warfare and the war of attrition to fight tyrannical superpowers.""We, alongside the mujahedeen, bled Russia for 10 years until it went bankrupt and was forced to withdraw in defeat," bin Laden said.
Bin Laden loves it when America deploys thousands of troops around the globe on wild goose chases:
"All that we have to do is to send two mujahedeen to the furthest point east to raise a piece of cloth on which is written al Qaeda, in order to make generals race there to cause America to suffer human, economic and political losses without their achieving anything of note other than some benefits for their private corporations," bin Laden said.
  • You can defeat the world's most powerful military by eroding the economy that funds it.
  • Soviet figher pilots were still some of the best in the world when their country simply dissolved beneath them.
  • The mighty American Abrams tanks and aircraft carriers will turn to rusting hulks if we continue to ignore our finances.

Deficit spending in the name of security RUINS our security:

We borrow $2 billion per day, increasingly mortgaging our children to communist China.

Have you helped Osama bin Laden today by demanding a domestic welfare state, global welfare state, or policeman-of-the-world "Global War on Terror" (TM)?

“The obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty, not coddle the world, precipitating no-win wars, while bringing bankruptcy and turmoil to our people.”--Ron Paul

Ron Paul's dual policies of foreign policy non-interventionism (the smart way to be globally active) and economic/monetary reform will defeat Osama bin Laden and save our economy.

Ron Paul is the only presidential candidate who understands the global economic and financial forces necessary to achieve both military and economic security.

Rudy Giuliani tried to posture himself as "Mr. 9/11" but during debate seemed to not have even read the 9/11 Commission Report and did not know the CIA analysis that US presence in the Mid-East was an al Qaeda grievance. Ron Paul cited this official US government explanation but Giuliani embarrassed himself by saying that he had never heard of it. Giuliani has dropped out of the race, although he supports McCain, which should tell you something.

Willard "Mitt" Romney tries to posture himself as "Mr. Economy" but (despite his personal business accomplishment) Romney does not understand macro-economics. In this interview, Romney seems not to understand the host Mark Larsens' point about tax policy and seems not to know what M1 is (a money supply measure) or what VAT is (Value Added Tax, a serial sales tax), because the 1% does make sense in this context (Update: Romney has dropped out of the race, although he supports McCain, which should tell you something.):

Ron Paul, the real Mr. Economy and Mr. Main Street

Congressman Dr. Ron Paul started as a small businessman (ran his own medial practice) and is now a monetary expert who served on President Ronald Reagan's gold commission and now serves on economic/finance committees overseeing the Federal Reserve and the world's largest economy.

A Financial Bomb Worse than any Terrorist Bomb Yet Seen

Ron Paul understands that financial dangers arise from both warfare and welfare, with wars and entitlements accumulating over $9 TRILLION in gross debt and unfunded liabilities up to $50-70 TRILLION (depending upon the time frame), which is several times the total size of our economy.

Comptroller General of the United States David M. Walker explains the huge problem that no presidential candidate except Ron Paul will discuss:

Mega-investor Jim Rogers, who co-founded Quantum Fund with George Soros, explains the international financial crisis, the danger of the Federal Reserve, the threats to the US dollar, and how Ron Paul is the only one with "a clue":

Finance experts hail Dr. Paul:

“We need a plan that stimulates savings and production not more of the reckless borrowing and consumption that got us into this mess in the first place. Ron Paul’s plan is the only one that amounts to a step in the right direction. If you want meaningful change - for the better that is - Ron Paul is the only candidate capable of delivering it. The others merely promise to continue the failed policies that are at the root of our current economic problems.”--Peter Schiff is president of Euro Pacific Capital Inc, and a frequent guest on CNBC, Fox News, and Bloomberg Television. He is often quoted in major financial publications and is the author of the book Crash Proof.

“Ron Paul’s economic plan is the real thing – a plan. It’s not just a band-aid designed to ‘stimulate’ the economy in an election year. It’s a fundamental agenda for real and lasting change, making the US economy more vibrant and competitive, and removing barriers to advancement for all Americans.”--Donald L. Luskin is Chief Investment Officer for Trend Macrolytics LLC and contributing editor to the National Review Online and SmartMoney.com. He is also a frequent guest on CNBC, and the author of two books: Index Options and Futures: The Complete Guide and Portfolio Insurance: A Guide to Dynamic Hedging.

Captain Ron Paul will achieve both military and financial/economic security.
