So the ECB, which backs up European banks, will have trillions on its balance sheet which won't be repaid. The banks are underwater as Mish said (undercapitalized). Eventually a bank will fail, and the only possible responses are a bank holiday where you can't get your money out, or for the ECB to print up the money. It's no wonder money is fleeing the Euro and being invested in the dollar. But what will happen with the Fed, when the ECB pays off bonds which the Fed has, in inflated Euros (currently valued at 25% of GDP http://www.stlouisfed.org/publications/re/articles/?id=2464)? That will help us go broke sooner.

Ebola in America

Why boycott Dallas/Texas for the lack of government doing its job? Why not protest against the government, and boycott businesses owned by politicians? Aren't they the responsible ones? The Ebola patient was also in DC for several hours. I'd say staying out of Dallas is a good idea for the next month or so until we see what happens. But I will continue to do business with folks in Dallas and Texas, remotely.

Ebola is just getting started in the USA, thanks to our govenrment not doing their jobs, just like Obama.

Can It Happen Here?

"UKIP is the broadly conservative and libertarian party to the right of the Conservative Party." "the Republican leadership it has given the back of its hand to the libertarian right" Tyrell calls a party that isn't into fighting monsters abroad, "to the right of the Conservative Party." Is he taking the classical conservative view that we shouldn't send our military overseas and overthrow monsters, unless they attack us? Most GOP politicians are all for war (e.g. McCain, Graham, and even Bush). The political spectrum reality is more than left vs. right, there is also libertarians vs. authoritarians/statists. And today most in Congress are big statists. The vast majority of our GOP reps are statists, as you can see by their votes for more government, and their complaints about the Tea Party making them vote on it. Like Tyrell says, it depends on how people vote. And the voters aren't happy with either the RINOs or the Democrats.
"Your leaders would have you believe that we are not at war ..." That's true of Obama and Putin. They act as if the war will never come here. It came here 9/11/2001. And given we are creating enemies in the Middle East (it apparently isn't obvious we create enemies when we take sides in a civil war, and then we make enemies of our friends when we leave and stop supporting them and their efforts to get rich governing their countries) it will return, likely in the form of terrorists attacking civilians in the USA.
Would it be any other way for a grandiose narcissist, who thinks his rhetoric trumps reality? He repeats his lies (you can keep your plan and doctor) and believes the public will believe him.
"C4L wants to discredit" John Ransom. What is your source? I'm not aware of any such effort, and see that Ron Paul's meetup group posts links to Ransom's articles! http://www.meetup.com/ronpaul-1681/messages/30188542/ Also, Campaign For Liberty also provides links to Ransom's articles. http://www.campaignforliberty.org/national-blog/liberty-newswire-june-5-2012/ Your allegations, appear to be bunk.

Democrats Will Never Fix Obamacare

Why isn't the GOP leadership supporting and advocating for these bills? Is it because they know Reid will block their bills, or is it because they don't support the bills? Consider John Boehner's actions. These inlcude claiming on his website that "John is leading the fight to fully repeal and defund" Obamcare http://www.johnboehner.com/issue/healthcare, and he got mad at the Tea Party for forcing a vote on funding of Obamacare. The RINOs like Boehner, actually like Obamacare because they believe it will help elect more RINOs. What has the GOP done to increse our freedom since HW Bush? Nothing because they really don't want to, and prefer big government that fattens their wallets and power. They are just lying to conservatives, about being conservative.
Thanks Mr. Fontova, I didn't know of this.
Government statists continue to increase the size of government, while public opinion of our government are near all time lows, and they want to continue growing government, their power and their resulting increase in wealth. Since most in government are big government statists, their campaign strategy is "Vote for me, the other guy is worse, and let me tell you why." At least the Tea Party and libertarians (who aren't in the GOP leadership or RNC) are offering policies that give us more freedom, and as a result, are being attacked by both the Democrats and the RINOs.
