The following video was seen by me on http://surfer53.wordpress.com/2012/12/30/ron-paul-stood-with-the-99/
I watched the video and I didn’t think Ron Paul stood with the 99 percent because in this video he doesn’t mention anything about how federal legislation has been purchased to ensure that income and wealth have been redistributed to the 1 percent from the 99 percent for the last thirty years. Although Paul has some good understandings about the Federal Reserve and Wall Street, I don’t see him standing up for the 99 percent against the parasitic 1 percent. It is corruption in our entire political system that has brought this about. Mr. Paul doesn’t say anything about that in this video. Therefore, in my opinion, Ron Paul never stood up for the 99 percent.

The following things can go along way toward mending the economy and fixing the budget deficit, but it won’t happen because the 99 percent of Republicans, 80 percent of Washington Democrats and our corporate president are all on the Wall Street payroll, as well as the payroll of other members of the 1 percent. That’s why it’s a rigged game.

There is a complete news blackout of the revolution in Iceland that the US corporate media doesn’t want you to know about. The banksters are going to prison. Doesn’t somebody wish President Obama would have the same guts to do the right thing as say, the working people of Iceland, or how about FDR?

As the chart below shows, the military budget accounts for 58 percent of US discretionary spending. The US military spends more on its military than the next 9 largest military budgets in the world–combined. That’s the low ball estimate. The high ball estimate is that the US military budget is larger than the rest of the world combined. So what’s the big threat the US can’t handle if we slice the military budget in half so that we’re only bigger than the next 4 largest military’s combined? I know there is some idiot who thinks the US needs such a large military because the US is such a punk ass nation that Guatemala might invade and take over Texas, or that Syria might pay US Air to fly 20,000 soldiers into the US as a means of invasion. But they’d be wrong.
The big threat about lower military spending is that it could send Wall Street into a tailspin because it would lower bloated military profits.
Wall Street and the 1 percent love more and more military spending. President Obama with his ties to General Dynamics and other military dependent manufacturers loves military spending. That’s why the US has such a bloated military. The fat military budget; it’s not to protect US citizens. It’s to redistribute tax dollars to the rich.
Can anybody guess in what nation the writer of the following lives? “People who work here have to work 15 hours a day without Saturday, Sunday break and any holidays. Otherwise, they will suffer torture, beatings and rude remarks. Nearly no payment (10 yuan/1 month).” That translates to about $1.61 a month.
If you guessed China, you got it right. The beatings, the torture, the horrible wages, they’re all on behalf of Apple, Microsoft, Nike and hundreds of other US corporations. Many of these corporations are from other nations.
Don’t let anybody fool you. The Chinese are suffering under their communist/corporate masters. They’re not living in some middle class nirvana, at least not most of them.
