“People who know what they’re talking about don’t need PowerPoint.” – Steve Jobs
The gold standard did not collapse. Governments abolished it in order to pave the way for inflation. The whole grim apparatus of oppression and coercion, policemen, customs guards, penal courts, prisons, in some countries even executioners, had to be put into action in order to destroy the gold standard. (Ludwig von Mises, The Theory of Money and Credit, p. 461).
“What we’re witnessing today is the failure of a Keynesian economic model, and today we have to replace it with something — we either replace it with more government, more authoritarianism, more controls, or we look toward the free market.” Ron Paul, October 23, 2011
What do you think “govern” means?
It doesn’t mean “suggest” or “implore”.
It doesn’t mean two people sitting down,
talking it over, and compromising.
“Govern” means “force” and “force” means
“violence.” When you advocate any government
action, you must first believe that violence is
the best answer to the question at hand.
~ Allen Thornton
I’ve tried poor and I tried rich and I like rich better. It doesn’t mean that I am a bad guy. I didn’t go in to business to create a public policy success for either party, Republican or Democrat. I went in business to create jobs and opportunity, create opportunity, create value for myself and my investors. And that’s what the president should be praising, not demagoguing us simply because Warren Buffet says he pays more than his secretary. He should pay the secretary more and she will pay more.
