    Lew Rockwell: The Only Choice on November 6th

    The critical problem we face today is the same one all mankind has faced: the State, those monopolists who claim the right to break the laws that they make and enforce. How to restrain them is the critical problem of all sound political thinking. Making matters worse, this gang now has a monopoly on the money and the ability to print it, and they are abusing that power at our expense.

    How does voting change the situation? Neither of the candidates for president wants to do anything about the problem. On the contrary, they want to make it worse. This is for a reason.

    The State owns the “democratic process” as surely as it owns the Departments of Labor and Defense and uses it in ways that benefit the State and no one else.

    On the other hand, we do have the freedom not to vote. No one has yet drafted us into the voting booth. I suggest that we exercise this right not to participate. It is one of the few rights we have left. Nonparticipation sends a message that we no longer believe in the racket they have cooked up for us, and we want no part of it.

    Mitt Romney Won’t Bring Back Norman Rockwell
    August 15, 2012 by John Myers


    A visceral longing to renew America and return to its gilded age along with growing fears over what direction the Nation is headed have brought a modicum of hope to many people that presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney can restore American greatness if elected in November — so much so that renewal in America is a central theme to his election platform.

    After four dismal years under President Barack Obama, it is a cherished hope for the country. Yet I believe that if Romney is elected, it will be an empty dream; he will be just the latest President to preside over the United States’ grand decline, which began decades ago. Neither Romney nor a new Congress can rebuild the United States; the Nation’s greatness is fading faster than the paint on anything Norman Rockwell painted.

    Yet that is not what the Republican candidate is claiming. The Romney public relations team rightfully attacked Obama’s mind-boggling comment: “If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own.”

    The Romney ad campaign is entitled “These Hands.”



    What are the chances that Romney — even with a new and better Congress (impossible to imagine how it could be worse) — has the tools to rebuild the Nation and bring back the America that so many of us are nostalgic for? I would lay the odds at somewhere between zero and nil.
    Even Romney admits that the United States is in decline. Last month, he told a group of California donors that the Australian foreign minister warned him there is talk abroad that America is “in decline.”

    That is hardly a shocker. The peak of Pax Americana happened sometime around when I was born in the 1950s.

    Back then, the United States had the largest trade and budget surplus ever amassed and the most dominant military since Julius Caesar. The country was producing almost half of all automobiles, oil and steel consumed by the world.

    Half a century ago, well-paying manufacturing jobs accounted for more than a third of the Nation’s workforce. Today, they equal fewer than one in 10. In the past decade alone, 5 million manufacturing jobs have disappeared. Almost half of the 12 million that still exist hang by a thread as rivals such as China and India make more of the world’s goods. America is left with Wal-mart-like retail jobs that pay less than $19,000 per year (less than one-third of the inflation-adjusted salary earned on an average manufacturing job in the 1960s).

    Things are not going to get better, forecasts The McKinsey Global Institute (MGI). According to MGI, U.S. manufacturing will not add any new jobs to the economy between now and 2021 and that was the institute’s “positive scenario.” A more negative prediction from the firm indicates that America will continue to be hollowed out with even greater job losses in industries that build “things.”

    Steel is a perfect example of the loss of American might. Once the largest steel manufacturer in the world, the United States now employs 153,000 workers and produces just 7 percent of the world’s steel. China accounts for 40 percent of global steel output. And in the next decade, India may exceed China as a steelmaker.

    The trend isn’t much better in technology. Foxconn, the Chinese computer and cellphone manufacturer, employs more people than Microsoft Corp., Intel Corp., Hewlett-Packard Co., Apple Inc., Dell Inc. and Cisco Systems Inc.

    combined. At the same time, more and more American industry giants are shifting production offshore. General Electric Co. has a workforce of more than 300,000, but more than half of these highly skilled jobs are overseas. Just a decade ago, IBM had only 6,000 employees in India and 135,000 workers in the United States. IBM now employs 110,000 in India. India now has a larger IBM workforce than does the United States.

    While the Administration of President Barack Obama is staffed with money men whose experience comes from Wall Street, China’s leadership is dominated by engineers. Seven of the nine members on China’s Politburo Standing Committee are engineers, yet there isn’t a single engineer that can be named among Obama’s advisers. Given Romney’s history with Wall Street, it seems unlikely that things will change in that respect.

    While Washington doesn’t understand the plight of the Nation, some of the few remaining leaders in industry do. Nucor Corporation (NYSE: NUE) is one of the largest steelmakers in the United States. The company’s Website contains the phrase “A Nation that makes and builds things.”

    Yet Nucor’s Chairman, President and CEO Daniel R. DiMicco is fed up with the direction the United States is heading.

    Reportedly, he is fond of saying: “Do those idiots (that shape American economic policy) think we can survive by pushing paper around?”

    The immediate problems that Romney will face if elected are even more entrenched than just our Wal-Mart-based economy. Education in the Nation is a morass; to a large degree because of the liberal education system and teachers unions. There is also a sense among students learned from their parents that they are somehow entitled, even if they are unable to achieve.

    In his new book Time to Start Thinking: America in the Age of Descent, author Edward Luce writes:

    More than a quarter of a million students drop out of high school. Many of the rest present a different challenge. Teachers avoid issuing verbal reprimands for errant behavior (to avoid disciplinary action). Parents remonstrate with teachers if their kids get C grades. And every child gets to win some trophy or other at school prize day (“effort” and “punctuality” are my favorite perennials). So sheltered have American middle class teenagers become that the deans of small American colleges have recently begun using the phrase “tea cups” about incoming freshman (because they are so psychologically fragile).
    Luce points out that State Department officials were shocked a year ago when at the induction meeting for its summer intern program they were handed statements from students which included remarks: “We don’t like to be criticized,” and “It is really motivating to get praise.”

    Yes, it is nice to get praise; but it used to be that you had to earn it. These days, in many ways the United States isn’t earning it; and the arrogance of our high school graduates comes to some extent from that arrogance in Washington that America has a preordained right to greatness. Our leaders who believe this axiom must not be listening to the markets, because the U.S. dollar has been in a downward spiral for a decade and I can’t see how it is going to reverse itself over the next four years.

    I expect a Romney victory in the wake of Obama’s sheer incompetence as President, but I am not going to delude myself that Romney can rebuild the Nation. If America were a ship, then it’s already hit the iceberg. Switching captains now won’t stop it from sinking.

    Yours in good times and bad,

    Dear XXXXXXX,

    For years, the Fed has been shrouded in secrecy as it manipulates markets, bails out its allies, and corrupts our currency.

    But we just took a major step toward finally reining in the Fed. Audit the Fed passed the U.S. House 327 to 98, setting up a showdown in the Senate.

    I’ve led the fight throughout this Congress on Audit the Fed – and we’ve been joined every step of the way by Campaign for Liberty.

    As the Senate battle draws near, it’s vital C4L be able to activate millions of grassroots supporters from around the country.

    The vote will be close. Your action today could well make the difference.

    So please, read the email below from my friend Matt Hawes of Campaign for Liberty. Lend them your support and your action today.

    For Liberty,


    Congressman Ron Paul








    Dear XXXXXX,

    Our first major battle in the fight to pass Audit the Fed this Congress has been won. At the end of July, the U.S. House passed Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed bill 327 to 98.

    Now our second major battle – and our toughest one – gets fully underway. The U.S. Senate awaits.

    And if you’ve seen Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke smiling recently, I’ll tell you why. He thinks he has Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his Fed-loving, statist allies in his pocket.

    That’s why it’s vital you act today to help push our momentum forward in the U.S. Senate and prove them wrong.

    Senator Rand Paul stands ready to lead the charge on the inside. What he needs the most now is our critical grassroots backup.

    I'll give you a link to the petition urging your senators to support Audit the Fed and insisting the Senate bring it up for a standalone, roll call vote in a moment, but let explain why this fight is so crucial.

    This battle will NOT be easy. There are many “Wall Street” senators who depend on the global elite for their campaign funds and their Senate seat.

    It is up to you and me to show them that seat is at risk if they stand with the renegade Fed this time.

    Patriots like you have helped win battles all across the nation these past few years - passing legislation to protect liberty at the state level, defeating statist schemes on Capitol Hill, and taking party positions as we work to make a lasting impact.

    AND you have helped C4L bring the Federal Reserve right into the center of the political debate. Thanks to your hard work and that of so many other Patriots, the Fed sits in shadows no more.

    For years, the Federal Reserve has toiled in secrecy, with its propping up of world banks, bailing out of cronies, and printing of fiat currency not just unregulated, but largely unknown.

    Those in the Washington establishment and global elite knew all about it, though. They knew the Fed propped up Wall Street bankers. They knew it floated loans to third world dictators. They knew it was devaluing the dollar and risking our entire economic system.

    They were just hoping the American people wouldn’t find out.

    But from coast to coast, Americans are waking up to the Fed’s disastrous history and actions. They’re not only learning about all the problems the Fed causes in our economy, but they’re so outraged they’re demanding Congress take action.

    The Fed put you and me on the hook for trillions. And remember when the head of the Fed refused to tell Congress where our money went just a few short years ago?

    Times sure are changing.



    You and I – and our Audit the Fed effort - have the banksters shaking in their boots. Desperate to hold on to both their power and their secrecy, they’ve done everything they can to stop our fight for transparency.

    But we’re not backing down. We’re turning the pressure up.

    You and I are already fresh off a major victory, as Audit the Fed passed the House without being watered down to make the banksters happy.

    Now we stand on the verge of making history in the U.S. Senate.

    Campaign for Liberty is planning a massive grassroots tidal wave of action for the time surrounding this historic vote, but only your help today will make these plans possible.

    We want to make sure millions more Americans hear about the outrages perpetrated by the Fed and realize they can take action.
    *** If we have the resources, we will launch hard-hitting TV ads, web ads, direct mail, and other targeted communications.
    *** In addition, we will blanket the air, print, and web with earned media, tapping our vast network of reporters, editors, and opinion-makers to help shine the brightest spotlight possible on our Audit the Fed efforts in the Senate.
    It is my goal to contact 5 million Americans in the coming weeks and rally them to help us make this massive push to Audit the Fed. None of this will be cheap, though.

    In fact, if I can count on our members to stand by us now, I’m hoping to raise $1.5 million in the coming weeks to spread the word far and wide.

    It’s no secret that money is tight for most people these days, including Campaign for Liberty. And we certainly know there are other worthy places to put your money. Believe me, we understand.

    But time is running out to put all of our plans into motion. I am afraid if we let the opportunities we have this year slip away, our fight to Audit - and then END - the Fed will be set back years.

    You and I have never had a better chance to win this battle.



    Our issue has never had a bigger spotlight, a broader appeal, or more public evidence on our side, thanks to all of your hard work and C4L’s efforts to spread the word these last few years.

    The American people heard all about the TARP bailouts.

    They heard about QE 1 and 2, and they know another round could be on the way soon. They saw the Fed bail out the central banks of Europe.

    They see our debt mounting and our dollar crumbling. And they’re angry. It is time to rally them to our cause and finish this fight.

    Campaign for Liberty must move forward with our grassroots activism plan in order to win in the Senate.

    So please, help Campaign for Liberty take advantage of our historic opportunity to pass the Audit the Fed bill by filling out your petition, and make your most generous possible contribution of $100, $50, $25, $10 - or whatever you can afford - to C4L today!

    With the public spotlight of our victory in the House, and with the Fed being a major topic of political discussion and debate right now, the first part of our plan has come together, after years of hard work.

    Now you and I must finish the job in the Senate. Senator Rand Paul stands ready to fight, and Campaign for Liberty is working to mobilize the critical grassroots backup he needs to advance Audit the Fed.

    So please, complete your petition to C4L today, and make your most generous possible contribution today.

    Thank you for all you do to help C4L Reclaim the Republic and Restore the Constitution.


    In Liberty,



    Matt Hawes
    Vice President

    P.S. Our historic victory for Audit the Fed in the U.S. House, where it recently passed 327 to 98, has set the stage for us to take on our toughest battle yet – the U.S. Senate. The banksters and their allies in Congress will do everything they can to stop or water down this vital reform in the Senate.

    But, thanks to the hard work of so many dedicated Patriots these past few years, we have our best chance ever to pass Audit the Fed. It’s also our last chance with Dr. Paul in Congress. So it’s time to turn up the heat on the Senate!

    Please fill out your petition, and make your most generous contribution of $100, $50, $25, $10 - or whatever you can afford - to C4L today!

    Thank you for your support.

    Fear of Assassination

    Submitted by Rick Mann on Wed, 08/15/2012 - 08:47
    Ron Paul 2012
    DP Original

    I do not believe Ron Paul fears anything including assassination. I do not believe he fears for his family. He sees the long view and realizes nothing changes until fearless men take a stand, so STAND we must.

    You don't get to the heart of truth and walk in it like he has and not have dealt with fear in your life. He is a man of faith and is faithful to his calling.

    Cautious, yes, but never fearful!

    I have faced the possibility of being taken out if I did not bend, but like Ron Paul, with children and grandchildren whose character is being formed by my actions, there is no hesitation..no room for compromise.

    "Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?"

    Is it?

    Ron Paul has answered that question...have you?

    The success of the liberty movement depends on our answer to this question posed by Patrick Henry over 200 years ago..

    Dear XXXXXX,

    Will you join me for breakfast in Tampa later this month?

    I firmly believe the upcoming Republican National Convention is our chance to show the establishment that our Liberty movement is the future of the GOP.

    The establishment has not been happy with our incredible progress this year, as they've seen us gain delegates and strengthen our ranks in state parties.

    In order to spread the message of liberty, I am certain we must work with all the tools we have, including aiding solid candidates and taking control of local and state parties.

    That's why I'm proud to be
    speaking at a breakfast reception on Monday, August 27th, in Tampa, Florida, to benefit the Republican Party of Iowa.

    Iowa stands out as a great example for supporters in other states to follow, as our grassroots activists were tremendously successful there. They gained seats in local parties and the State Central Committee, and they took 21 out of 28 National Delegates!

    The Republican Party of Iowa is run by good friends of mine who worked on my presidential campaign and continue to fight for our liberties. A.J. Spiker, now the Chairman of the Republican Party of Iowa, served as my state co-chair.

    Funds raised at the breakfast will be used to build their party and promote the popular message of freedom in Iowa.

    Please consider
    joining me on Monday, August 27th. The Republican Party of Iowa is asking for a donation of $100 to attend so they can cover expenses and continue to advance the cause of liberty throughout the state.

    This breakfast will be a time to gather with old friends and meet some new ones. And it’ll help further our mission of growing the liberty movement and showing the establishment that we are the future of the Republican Party.

    So, if your schedule allows,
    please join me for breakfast in Tampa on August 27th!

    For Liberty,

    Ron Paul

    P.S. In order to spread the message of liberty, I believe we must work with all the tools we have, including aiding solid candidates and taking control of local and state parties.

    Iowa stands out as a great example for supporters in other states to follow, and I am proud of our many successes there.

    The Republican Party of Iowa is run by good friends of mine who worked on my presidential campaign and continue to fight for our liberties.

    So please
    join me for a special breakfast reception on Monday, August 27th, in Tampa, Florida, to benefit the Republican Party of Iowa, further grow our movement, and keep showing the establishment that we are the future of the Republican Party!
