Sarah Palin and Scott Walker would be better examples of politicians who don't lie. Both were governors, both did what they said they would do, and both actually accomplished something, a feat Ron Paul has yet to achieve.

Sorry buddy, but I gotta call you on your BS. Your jab at Ron Paul is purely for the point of annoying Ron Paulites.

Let me ask you a question. Was it Ron Paul or was it somebody else that warned in 2003 of the coming housing bubble and economic downfall that the government was encouraging? . . . It was Ron Paul. Was it his fault that the rest of Congress was persuaded either by faulty rhetoric or by special interest to support the policies that lead to our nation's greatest issue at this day and time?

Ron Paul is the one who stood apart preaching about the ideals of free markets, fiscal responsibility, and austrian economics. These are the things that the Tea Party holds in high regard.

BHO can be added to the list. He did not lie, he stated he was going to destroy America as we knew it, and he is keeping his promise. I think his words were "I am going to change the way America does business."

Ron Paul's votes in Congress are a record of protecting our liberties unmatched by anyone else in today's Congress.

Concerning the idea of "accomplishing something" in government, I'd much prefer that government not accomplish anything given the way it's always been detrimental to our freedom. Ron Paul, as a mere representative in the House, cannot accomplish something without support from others. And our government is dominated by statists, including the RINO party. After all, even among the 2010 Tea Party class, less then 30% of them cast their vote to end some corporate welfare: Export/Import bank, EDA, and funding for the Dept. of Energy "investment" program. RINOs are claiming to be Tea Party types to get elected (and lying).

Thanks MoreFreedom for stating the obvious to Kent clueless.

I was on Capital Account once again on Wednesday with Lauren Lyster. The topics of discussion this time were the US and global recessions, auto sales, and Paul Krugman.

Link if video does not play: Paul "King" Krugman knocked off his Ivory Tower as Fools Sack the Hill! 

I regards to Krugman, I concluded with ...

"His Keynesian thesis simply does not add up. We saw endless Keynesian and monetarist stimulus in Japan. It got them nothing. He learned nothing from Japan. He learned nothing from the great depression. Yet, because he has a Nobel prize, he can write a book...
