Jesse Benton's Resignation Letter from C4L-With note from Ron Paul

• http://www.dailypaul.com

Letter from Jesse Benton, with note from Congressman Paul

The following letter was sent from Jesse Benton, former Senior Vice President of Campaign for Liberty, to returning C4L President John Tate earlier today.

September 11, 2012

Dear John and C4L Board of Directors,

Helping found, build, and grow Campaign for Liberty over the last four years has been one of the great honors of my life.

Every day, I was blown away by the dedication and energy of you, our team, and the thousands of activists across the country fighting together to make our country a better place. Campaign for Liberty is a rare thing in this world: a real force for good and positive change that continues to give me hope and optimism for our future.

As I stand at an important crossroads in my life, I have been blessed with wonderful opportunities but also face difficult choices. After much soul searching, I have decided that my passion lies in direct electoral politics, and I plan to work on campaigns rather than resume my work in grassroots advocacy.

It is therefore with a heavy heart that I write to tell you that I will not rejoin Campaign for Liberty’s staff this fall. Please know that you, our team, Dr. Paul, and all our wonderful members have my undying friendship and loyalty. I am of course happy to be a resource and friend to any and all of you, for whatever is in my power to provide.

Thank you as well, John, from the bottom of my heart, for your guidance, wisdom, and calm, steady hand over the years. I know that with your leadership, the power of the message of Liberty, and the energy of the supporters, Campaign for Liberty will grow stronger than ever and accomplish even greater things.

In Liberty,

Jesse Benton

Note from Congressman Ron Paul:

As Jesse moves on to new opportunities, I wanted to take a moment to thank him for his tireless efforts on behalf of our cause these past few years.

Jesse remains committed to building on the historic progress our movement has made, and I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

I look forward to seeing the great things I know he and Valori will accomplish together in the years to come.

For Liberty,

Ron Paul

Slurs and ridicule by pretended to be experts ---without a shard of substance to support their claims of expertise, wisdom, or understanding of the thread being discussed ---- appears to be the norm for a few contributors of this board.

I am a good bedtime storyteller to my kids – and I have this story to tell: This Aging Rib [Olde Reb] said to Bolopunch: “If you are familiar with legal procedure, you should know that NO ONE has standing to make a criminal charge but the PA.”

This Old Mouse who has never been to law school, was lecturing Bolopunch, a LAWYER, on legal procedure! Can you beat that? Here’s an old mouse from a rat hole back in the farm lecturing a Lawyer about “legal procedure”? Ay yay, yay Mama Mia!

So folks, I tell this old mouse: You don’t only have a “standing”, dude – you don’t even have an underSTANDING of Law, old goat! … You are not even standing … you are crouching like a frog when you croak, heh, heh, he, he…

So now Olde-Old Rib, I will tell you the story of this Donkey and the Fish in the water. The Donkey lives in the rugged mountains of Honky-Tonk in the hinterland of Alabama that had never seen water in the river all his miserable life [his master only let him drink his urine]. You are the donkey Old Rib, and Bolopunch is that fish in the water.

The Donkey said to the Fish: Have you heard about this running water in the river? I’ll tell you what: Do you know that if you want to cross the river, you have to swim in the water? You can’t do that – you will drown.

Stunned for a moment, the fish couldn’t take it any longer and just jumped into the river almost dying with laughter, and the fish almost drowned for what it had just discovered.

The fish just realized how really stupid donkeys are!

@halo punch. If you are familiar with legal procedure, you should know that NO ONE has standing to make a criminal charge but the PA.

You claim to be so knowledgeable of economics when you enrolled in this class. You were assigned a minor project; to document how Treasury securities sold at auction by the Fed (with all funds and accounting procedures handled by the FRBNY which have NEVER reported the disbursements nor have the accounts ever been audited) and identify how inflation (an increase in the amount of currency in circulation) can occur and how the National Debt can increase if all of the funds from the sale of securities issued for deficit spending go to the government. If such funds were delivered to the government as the Fed contends, they would be the same flow of money as if a taxpayer satisfied his obligation; i.e., there would be no inflation nor would there be an increase in the National Debt. This flow of money is utilized when the auctions roll-over pre-existing securities.

The thesis presented in the offered documents concluded that funds from the sale of deficit spending securities cannot go to the government and still have inflation and an increase in the National Debt. The funds must disappear in the vaults of the FRBNY.

Your assignment, with all of your blowhard claim to knowledge and self-assuredness, was to offer an alternate mathematical progression that can result in inflation and an increase in the National Debt WITHOUT the funds from the auctions (of deficit spending securities) disappearing in the vaults of the FRBNY. Your response was more arrogant bluster and denigrating of any challenge to the status quo. It offered no substance.

Your grade: FAILED.

This course is very lenient . If you wish to present a feasible progression for consideration within three days, you may have your grade reviewed.

After a successful sting, there will always be some who will never understand how they got taken. The operation of the Fed is a beautiful sting.

When the Federal Reserve of the United States of America is “abolished”, hey … that will be the only time for me to believed that those OUTRAGEOUS accusations of about a hundred years of plunder and pillage is true. But as of now – go fly a kite of innuendoes that rip-off your soul as you cry out loud with crocodile tears in your eyes.

“Old” Rib, you admit you have “no standing to file a criminal charge”. Good, you realized the error of your arrogance. Now you can shut up.

Your problem is you relied on “mathematical analysis” in imagining that the “Rip Of …” allegedly committed by the Fed was REAL. These are just “analyses” -- examinations of numbers that do NOT prove a crime was committed. If these proved that there is “truth” behind those ludicrous accusations -- that the Federal Reserve had raided the national treasury since 1913 when it was established – this wanton criminal pillage of the people’s money would have closed down the Fed long time ago. But these are not true. The Fed is still here, and will still be here even if you shall have been long gone! Do you understand that?

You can have a truckload of “mathematical analysis” but it does not prove the truth of any imagined accusation, more so when these are all wrong because it just happens to be a politically motivated disinformation or clandestine propaganda.

Let me do something to your run-away imagination that was taken by those tricky online publications: A skunk is a skunk that smells bad. A thousand angels from hell telling you that it smells good would not make any difference at all.

In short, you can gather all those ugly stories you can find against the Federal Reserve and present them to me – but it does not mean that they are true.

Maybe you are just “old” and had not wizened up to your age, but let me tell you: If you think you believe that those accusations are true – go ahead, you are free to believe what you want to believe. No one is preventing you from living in the world of YOUR OWN REALITY – just don’t drag us there because we are NOT in “Cloud Nine” as JV puts it, like you are.

Besides, we know better!

@ Bolopunch. I have no standing to file a criminal charge. I do have standing to file an action under seal that would bring the allegation of theft to the attention of the U.S. attorney. Discussion of a sealed court case may be construed as contempt and result in dismissal of the case. I have no statement on such a situation.

A mathematical analysis of the known elements of money creation by the Federal Reserve and Congress are identified in the two essays; RIP OFF BY THE FEDERAL RESERVE, http://www.scribd.com/doc/48194264/rip-off-by-the-Federal-Reserve-revised ; and a brief conclusion is at FEDERAL RESERVE HEIST, www.scribd.com/doc/101937790. The extrapolation of the known facts and procedures is progressed to the final scenario of concealed profits in FR Heist. Specific details of how a voucher system of redeeming Treasury securities by the FRBNY and Primary Dealers (unidentified owners of the BOG) utilizing bogus CUSIP numbers to transfer hidden profits is suggested.

I challenge you to develop an alternate scenario wherein inflation and a national debt are incurred WITHOUT the benefits of inflation becoming a profit of the Federal Reserve -- as alleged -- via the handling of money from the auctions of Treasury securities by the FRBNY.

If you can do that and display the vast scope of your economic acumen, you have greatly undermined my accusation of concealment of money by the Federal Reserve system. Such knowledge would appear to be a fundamental requirement of a worthy economics course.

I got it, Ufact, now that you pointed out what this “ORGASM IN AN ORGY OF ALLEGATIONS” is all about. If you [when I say “you” I am referring to a “he” that passes for a “she” and vice versa to hide a split personality] are mentally constipated due to malnutrition because you do not get a balance diet from food stamps and your brain is starving, you IMAGINE what the Federal Reserve is NOT doing which you think is doing.

When Fed authorities do their job to steady the course of the economy, this character on welfare sees a PONZI. And what he/she sees wets his/her IMAGINATION … he/she is helplessly attracted to Ms. PONZI and he/she screams with uncontrollable gratification just writing down his/her hidden EJACULATION and ORGASM of such uncontrollable pleasure by just looking at Ms PONZI.

In short, I am talking about a PERVERT and his/her lascivious comment from “Cloud Nine”.

It seems that the “accusation” of “Federal rip-off” is nothing but a psychological ORGASM in an orgy of ALLEGATIONS … a CONSTIPITATION of the IMAGINATION, and only in the mental EJACULATION of indecent pleasure among members of the twilight INSTITUTION of sadistic PERVERSION.

Fractional reserve banking is simply a control, used by the Federal Reserve Bank, to keep itself and its satellite banks, from going completely bonkers and creating way more new money than the United States money system can handle. As it is, dumping $billions in bailout money into the America economy has come close to causing runaway inflation over the last decade.

Bailout money to American corporations was a necessity, not to help America out, but to veritably bribe the big CEOs of big corporations into keeping their mouths shut about how the Fed really works. The thing that a complete audit of the Fed would do, the thing that the Fed is so afraid of, would be to bring out into the open for American public to see, that they have been and are being totally screwed and ripped off by the Fed Ponzi scheme.

Thanks to the pioneering efforts of Tom Schauf (start by googling "tom schauf bank freedom"), pioneering efforts that were followed up on and extended by the people over at DueProcess.org, big corporation CEOs were waked up to the fact (although they probably had some inkling of it before) that BANK AND LENDING INSTITUTION LOANS ARE NOT LOANS AT ALL! RATHER, THEY ARE CREATIONS OF NEW MONEY! This fact is the thing that the Fed needed to bribe the CEOs about, so that they wouldn't go viral, and blow the whole Fed Ponzi scheme out of the water, by going public with this information, info that they and their accountants had finally proven as FACT!

The bribes worked for awhile, but the information is finally filtering its way to the public, despite everything that the Fed can do to keep it hidden. All that an audit of the Fed would do would be to verify before the public directly, the thing that big CEOs and their accountants figured out starting in the early '90s.

Money is different. People can be made to feel guilty in court about going over the speed limit. They can be made to feel guilty about committing murder, or about grand theft auto, or about multitudes of BAD things that they might do. But you can't make the people feel guilty that their money has been stolen from them. All you do is make them angry, once they find out.

This is exactly the thing that a complete audit of the Fed would do. It would show the people that there were never any loans in the standard meaning of the word "loan." It would show the people that the word "loan" had been re-defined by Government, so that the banks could use it to mean "creations of new money" while the people were  being tricked into thinking that the standard meaning applied, BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE RE-DEFINING!

Perhaps the Fed has done nothing wrong legally. Perhaps even the foreign bailouts can be shown to be completely within the Fed's legal privilege to do, like Bernanke insists. After all, Fed accountants and lawyers are meticulous. But when the people finally see that all their blood, sweat and tears that have gone into repaying LOANS THAT WERE NOT LOANS, that really didn't need any repaying, that the mortgage loan against the house that they bought WAS NOT A LOAN, that they lost their house FOR NOTHING, that it all had to do with legal re-defining of words, the people aren't going to be happy. They are going to be very, very angry.

How many marriages have broken down because of loan money problems? How many businesses have gone under? How many people have LITERALLY DIED because of money worries, simply because the word "loan" had been re-defined so that the banks could call the creation of new money a loan?

A full audit of the Fed would bring this whole thing out into the open. People would talk among themselves. Once the reality of it struck home, million-man marches would be happening on the banks and the Government, daily and regularly. And they wouldn't be done by the simple, unarmed public. They would be done by common, everyday military personnel, who would commandeer tanks to take down Washington and the Fed.

So, now you can see why Government people like JV, and bolopunch, and all their buddies are fighting so hard to downplay anything and everything about freedom. When the public wakes up to the Federal Reserve Bank Ponzi scheme (a thing that is happening anyway), if the JV people don't change their tune, if they don't suddenly turn and fight on the side of freedom, they will go down right along with the Fed and the Government.

Old Rib, accusing the Federal Reserve of stealing trillions of dollars of the people’s money is a very SERIOUS crime. Why don’t you and your kind go to court and file criminal charges, get Dr. Ben Bernanke arrested, try him in the court of law and send him and his cahoots to jail?

You know why you cannot go to court and in fact why you didn’t go to court. Because such accusations are not true – there is not even an iota of truth in it. It is just a product of the imagination … of the very angry minds of ignorant accusers, of “economic illiterates” [thanks to JV for this cattle-brand] who have no idea what the role of Central Banks is in the economy, and how they function and operate.

But it is here where your bone of contention lies: At the rate of this alleged Satanic “robbery” and mind-boggling amounts of stealing of the people’s money perpetrated by “bankers” which have been going on for almost one hundred years now since the Federal Reserve was established in 1913 – and by the way these accusations are repeated and repeated almost every single day for the last one hundred years – would not the Fed been closed by now, and would not at least any of the Chairmen of the Federal Reserve would have been in jail while the alleged stealing and robbery have been going for the last one hundred years? And why is this not happening?

The answer is simple – these accusations are NOT true.

To prove that your accusations are true, you can assemble fragments of what appear to be criminal evidences of plundering that occurred in the Federal Reserve committed by a gang of looters, list down circumstances of criminality describing the act of looting, compute $16 trillions of dollars and come up with what purports to be the body of the crime, name names involved in the transactions, when and where the transactions took place, then identify what crime or crimes were committed – this is how you build a case against the Federal Reserve gang of robbers you accused of plundering the people’s money.

Perhaps IGNORANCE is what prevents you from creating a case against the Fed and put your accusations where your mouth is. Was it “stealing” or “investing”. Was it a dole-out or a loan, was it a bank bailout or a capital fallout to cronies – did you know exactly what central banking operations the Federal Reserve was involved in? You can’t do this if you are “economic illiterate” or a banking ignoramus. You can only accuse repeatedly for as long as you want until hell freezes over or until you turn blue, whichever comes first, but you cannot prove that any of your accusation is true.

You cannot create crimes through your freaking imagination – you have to commit them.

And perhaps you will have another one hundred years of accusing the Federal Reserve of stealing and “robbing”, down to your last generation of accusers, but no Chairman of the Fed will ever go to jail; you will be long gone and the Federal Reserve of the United States of America will still be there.

Bolopunch expounds greatly on Dr. Paul’s questioning of the Great PhD Economist Ben Bernanke but the case can be encapsulated in one of his statements: “Ron Paul lost his grassroots magic as a righteous self-anointed “economist” when he attacked the economic “ignorance” of Dr. Ben Bernanke who has a Ph.D. in Economics.”

Dr. Paul can at least see that the Nation has a one hundred year period where the National Debt has been consistently increasing, and the increase is exponential; i.e., it is a hockey stick shape. Dr. Paul may have also reflected on history and reviewed that all nations that have allowed the establishment of central banking have resulted in bankruptcy of the nation. Ref. FATAL EMBRACE by Benjamin Ginsberg.

The operation of the Federal Reserve has been mathematically analyzed. It is a Ponzi scheme that will confiscate the entire wealth of the nation for the economic benefit of the (unknown) owners of the FR Board of Governors. As in any Ponzi scheme, it is only a matter of time before more debt cannot be sold to continue the scam and the scheme collapses. Ref. RIP OFF BY THE FEDERAL RESERVE, http://www.scribd.com/doc/48194264 .

Perhaps an easier analysis to understand is the trillion dollar theft by the FRBNY by hiding money from the auction of Treasury securities. Ref. FEDERAL RESERVE HEIST, www.scribd.com/doc/101937790 .

Dr. Paul may not have had the most devastating questions for Mr. Bernanke but I submit he knew a scam artist when he saw one. Maybe Bolopunch can get some education in economics that his college forgot to offer.

PS: If Bolo thinks RP’s campaign was to make money, perhaps he would want to compare the budget with the other candidates‘ budgets.

My nutritional knowledge of one of the fundamental requirements of brain food is balance diet. If you live on welfare, you do not get the right amount of balance diet from food stamps.

We know this one in welfare. If Suka’s findings is correct as a professional psychiatrist-psychologist, this rabid follower of Ron Paul must have an empty sack of testosterone, judging from those “weird” comments he makes. But what happens to them happened. They have to move on.

That’s how I see this tragic event that had befallen on Ron Paul and his group.

Political idolatry is a function of low testosterone among men and high estrogen among women that impair better judgment resulting almost in insanity or at least resulting in a very disturbed personality. Idolizing a political figure like Ron Paul is one of the examples of such hormonal disturbances, studies reveal.

Those hormonal malfunctions are caused by burned out passion for a higher pursuit of idealism such as liberty and freedom that Ron Paul is apparently pursuing. At the same time there is this burning out of great amount of energy expended in extreme hatred and contempt of what is imagined as an authoritarian State and Government [The Evil Empire] that suppressed liberty and freedom.

The gnawing of frustration for not being able to bring down the Government by badmouthing its existence to death lowers tremendously the level of testosterone.

Let’s put it this way: This idolatry develops in the mind of the hormonally impaired idealists in Cloud Nine, like a bubble to a certain point where sooner or later it bursts, like happen to Ron Paul who drops out [dropping out] of politics.

Now that the bubble is gone, Ernie is partly right and partly wrong. The struggle should be outside of politics … right. What happened to Ron Paul was not the cause but “the effect of a shifting Culture towards support of Liberty... not the source of it.” Not necessarily right – it is not just “support of Liberty” but the right kind of liberty and freedom. If it is the kind of “liberty” and “freedom” that Ron Paul support or espoused, back to the lowering of the level of testosterone – back to square one.

TRIBUTE TO RON PAUL

What I wrote to the Editor entitled – WHEN IGNORANCE LEADS BY THE NOSE -- is actually a TRIBUTE to Ron Paul’s political demise starting from the resignation of his grandson-in-law Jesse Benton as campaign manager of the so-called “Ron Paul Movement”, to the time the Republican National Convention crushed them under their boots, and finally to Powell Gammill’s breaking news that Ron Paul is going to quit politics for good…

This smartest man I know [JV] was right all the time in repeatedly reminding the public that the Ron Paul campaign for president was just a money-making scheme from the very beginning.

I agree. What is probably so thought-provoking and hellish about the whole scam is that the rally to scalp money from the not-too-smart heads of the gullible rides on passion, using a high-polluted appeal for LIBERTY that touched the heart of the grassroots or common folks. Ergo, the published insinuation [general complaint] that Benton did not resign but ran away with the campaign money was not just an idle talk.

But I think Benton was actually smart when he decided that it was time to quit, and so was Ron Paul when Powell Gammill broke the news that Ron Paul was going to end his political career for good.

The reason for this is that the magic rub about Ron Paul has finally rubbed off. In JV’s writings, the causes of losing his shine are spelled out, like the cry for unrestricted freedom, end the Federal Reserve, recreate America without IRS, abolish Income Tax, damn the United Nations, freedom to produce, market and drink unpasteurized raw milk and milk products and spread a bacteria-caused disease that according to the FDA and health authorities had killed scores of rural folks, rally behind liberty and freedom of any individual in this country including that of Al Qaeda terrorist’s liberty to kill and freedom to destroy, and many other similar bucket-kicking craps all of which have been exposed and therefore are no longer acceptable in the people’s mind.

Ron Paul lost his grassroots magic as a righteous self-anointed “economist” when he attacked the economic “ignorance” of Dr. Ben Bernanke who has a Ph.D. in Economics.

In other words, Ron Paul’s economic illiteracy and the irrelevance of his undoing when he proclaimed himself as the nation’s leading “Constitutionalist” have been exposed as fraudulently unbelievable or deceptively incredulous. The people had realized that he didn’t even have any economic background in Economics, and he was not even a lawyer to be able to legally declare anything constitutional or unconstitutional. Some unkind remarks even declared him as a politician on the edge who makes a fool of himself by appearing in public like a clown.

Since all of these have been exposed, Ron Paul and his grandson-in-law knew that the campaign for president using all these crap will no longer bring in any dollar. So, time to quit! Details of all these can be read here: Ltr to the Editor FP.com 9/1012 --

When Ignorance Leads By The Nose

Now that those national conventions of both the Democratic and Republican parties are over, Ron Paul and followers have had a shocking discovery. They were stunned by this paralyzing discovery that their real enemy and the enemy of their Libertarian Movement is none other than the GOP itself!

What happened was that the RNC saw to it that they put the Texas Congressman and supporters under their authoritarian jackboots and crushed them for what they are -- inside that vicious Republican mind – they are pestering political bugs that need to be stepped on and silenced, forever!

There is a need of intervention to help Ron Paul and followers decide what to do with their so-called “Ron Paul Movement”. What the Republican Party thinks about Ron Paul and his followers, is the reason why I am calling your editorial attention in order to reach this website’s readership so that they too may pass judgment on Ron Paul’s political fate and that of his followers.

I would like to footnote a great commentary and reprint verbatim some portions of it [it is in quotation marks with a dusting of annotations and hardly an excision of writing style and wordings that amplifies rather than change the meaning intended] what has appeared recently in Freedom Forum showing how Ron Paul and followers where treated unfairly and why; what the public had witnessed with arms akimbo, i.e., how Ron Paul and his group were cheated of their primary victories, and defrauded of their right of representation to nominate Ron Paul for president in the Republican National Convention.

Total blackout of their participation in the RNC proceedings was planned by the GOP leadership in the most atrocious way possible, and no doubt the treachery employed was fashioned and carried out in the most flagrant and ignominious manner imaginable! The nation lost the chance to hear Ron Paul in the nationally televised Republican Podium speak of his Platform to Change America if elected president – even though the Republicans believed this may sound repugnant to a great majority of the American people!

“Republicans look down at Ron Paul, a Revolutionary Libertarian, as some kind of an ugly political CHAIN tied from the nose of his “hippie-like” Libertarian supporters as he leads them not to the Republican defeat of Obama in this coming November presidential election, but to his everlasting political mirage – his eternal Libertarian “utopia”.

There is nothing wrong with this “dream” because in America, everybody can dream of anything they want to achieve in life. It is what one decides to do, to realize that “American Dream” and how to do it that really matters. In Ron Paul’s case and that of his followers where the Paul-CHAIN of leadership is tied to their nose, something went terribly WRONG!

In his political campaign for change, Ron Paul intruded into the world of Economics as he attacked the Federal Reserves and the nation’s fiscal and money policies he “KNEW NOTHING about”. That’s the first fundamental error of the whole exercise! He could have launched his attacks for change from any discipline he is good at, but NOT on Economics. He does not have even an academic background in Economics …nothing at all in this area of battle he just jumped into!

The esoteric subject of fiscal and monetary economics is not something a layman learns in any many-storied streets, i.e., in the anarchists’ streets of Brooklyn, in the treacherous alleys of Wall Street where greedy speculators either get filthy rich or lost their millions to wagering or from the hostilities of the 2010 American slasher film Nightmare in Elmer Street. Ron Paul and followers could not launch their vicious attacks from this kind of “economic” background and expect the public to believe what they say.

The second bad mistake is when they use this street economic background they just learned by ears, to attack Dr. Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Fed, with a Ph.D. in Economics! The American public was incredulous of this scenario unfolding before their eyes as they witnessed with embarrassment this arrogant display of IGNORANCE in Economics!

Here is what’s in the mind of a schooled economist who posted his comment on economic illiteracy:

“If I can put to good use the knowledge of Economics I learned from the academe which was once my bread and butter, there is a good chance that economic illiteracy can be reduced, at least in this website, not necessarily to irrationally think that it could be stopped. Nonetheless, I believe that I and my kind should attempt to reduce economic illiteracy the best way we can as a free public service feature we offer right here at FreedomPhoenix.com. It is an ‘editorial’ balance we should volunteer to slow down the rapid proliferation of ‘cursing’ and ‘swearing’ malcontent inhabitants of this otherwise interesting online publication – angry old-timers of FP.com who lose their cool when their writings and commentaries tilt towards the extreme Left, i.e., the advocacy of violence with a Libertarian revolutionary undertone, like calling the citizenry to arms and put us all in harm’s way.”

What I am trying to show here is that maybe Ron Paul and his followers would change or reconsider the continuance of their “Ron Paul Movement” which many reasonable Americans believe leads to nowhere. I may sound abrasively critical but actually I am trying to help with nothing personal at the back of my mind.

“First, I want followers of Ron Paul to NOTICE CAREFULLY,” the economist continues, “that when Ron Paul tries to ‘lecture’ Dr. Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve in a legislative committee hearing on his ridiculous understanding of INFLATION as the Fed’s fault for printing “fiat money” [by the way the Fed does not do this … it is the Department of Treasury] the Chairman – who has a Ph.D. in Economics and recognized by U.S. satellite Economies all over the world as the “Economic Czar” of the United States today – was ROLLING his eyeballs with unbearable annoyance while listening patiently to Ron Paul!

“Out of civility, Dr. Bernanke has a hard time trying to control himself from telling the Congressman that HE HAS NO IDEA at all HOW Inflation comes about, and which targeted rate of Inflation is good to the economy, and which run-away Inflation has to be avoided that would ruin the economy [Galloping Inflation], and why.

“Inflation does not necessarily ‘destroy’ the economy as Ron Paul foolishly imagined. In fact under a certain state of the economy, Inflation is DESIRABLE!

“Dr. Bernanke’s discomfort comes from that simple realization that even if he will explain to Ron Paul that what the Congressman is talking about is actually NONSENSE, he considers Ron Paul economic illiterate and won’t understand anything Dr. Bernanke will say on the sophisticated science of Inflation and Monetary Economics where he earned his Doctorate!

That’s WHY I and my kind, among others, are always CALLING the ATTENTION of the American people every time Ron Paul embarrasses with what the public believes, his POLITICAL ODDITY and VOODOO ECONOMICS that are dangerous to America – and also to protect Americans from being foolishly taken for a ride!”

This economist now describes the level of his expertise and that of “ his kind” and what they can do to reduce economic illiteracy:

“The level of economic expertise we learned in the academe to enable us to do this civic responsibility of warning the public, is similar to the level of economic knowledge Dr. Bernanke have who has also his Ph.D. in Economics. It is obvious that Dr. Bernanke is too busy attending to his Herculean task as Chairman of the Federal Reserve and has no time to educate the public like we do … we put our spare time to good use in the nature of community service -- voluntary knowledge-sharing to reduce economic illiteracy among those who violently hate and attack the U.S. Federal Government and the Federal Reserve with their combative political and ideological hang-us which according to the National Institute of Health is a new and growing strain of ‘mental illness’ among the disgruntled population of the United States.

“Are we bothered by those ignorant ‘pains in the neck’ who strike us back with their insulting nonsense, hell no, not at all! We are resigned to accept such kind of mental disability and character infirmity. What is there to expect when they badmouth -- it’s just natural to them … that’s how nocturnal characters from the “lunatic fringe” behave! We are not in Psychiatry who could cure mental illnesses – maybe a psychiatrist or psychologist can. As far as I am concerned, I just do my clean-up routine every day – pick up the garbage and throw them away!

“What bothers me is when those mentally disabled characters from the edge act wildly like agitated zombies whose “mental illness” infects the gullible to do such foolish things as tearing the country apart by calling to arms vigilantes with anti-Government mentality that could lead to the declaration of Martial Law all over the country! When this happens, those robotic creatures from the “lunatic fringe” will be the first to run and hide … that I am sure.

“However, as of now, it is always bothersome to the entire citizenry when almost everybody is aware that the FBI Watch List is getting longer and longer every day. Fearful Americans are just sitting on the edge of their chair as they witness those disquieting events unfold before them, biting their nails with nervous uneasiness and deep anxiety while watching their Government being attacked from all directions by robotic leviathans from the ‘lunatic fringe’.

“The consequential comparison of such uneasiness and trepidation is like watching the glowing crater of a red hot volcano about to explode!”

“If this letter-essay is BOOKMARKED by economic illiterates who have a desire to get educated …who knows, one day they may cease to be a disturbing liability and turn themselves into something useful to our troubled society.”

yeah, well I went to my LD meeting tonight and on three or four occasions I wanted to jump up and yell at the top of my lungs

"RON PAUL R3VOLUTION" and I didn't.

What does that make me exactly?

From now until the end of time you can expect fund raising communications for GOP candidates that will not rock the boat too much (won't talk about ending the empire etc.) but will claim to carry the RP torch blah blah blah. Just the way it is.

I doubt that many of the front men and women associated with C4L and Dr. Ron Paul's campaign will be associated with "outsiders". Either the Ron Paul 'faction' will be well 'inside' the establishment or those that wish to be inside it will abandon organizations deemed too radical (End the Fed, End the Wars, Sound Money, Individual Rights etc.)

The answers are outside of politics. Political liberty rhetoric and public appeasement by those 'in charge' is a side effect of a shifting Culture towards support of Liberty... not the source of it.

Well, he did drive that white SUV rental like a champ when Dr. Paul came to town. Thanks Jesse.
