    Help us to spread the truth, pass this on and help us to take our country back.
    The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping them ignorant. (Maximilien Robespierre). Please take a few minutes and learn what you can do for our country.

    Fellow Americans we must re-store our character and values. Let’s build a nation base on honesty, integrity and trust.
    It is our duty to stand for honesty and our government. whenever the agenda of government becomes destructive of our principles, the rule of law and the right of the people. It is the people’s right to institute a new governing agenda and set a different course. We are a self-governing society, the power of the government is derive from the consent of the people. We are in control of our future; we either fight or die like cowards.

    • 2 weeks to go to Freedom — or Doomsday!

      Government is an ever growing Parasite — Unchecked it will eventually engulf the Host it feeds on (We The People), until it sucks US dry. At which point it will HAVE to Collapse, since the feeding is over once the people have been bled to death.

      Unfortunately Parasites have no brains — so cannot foresee their own Demise once they end us.

  2. These choices for moderators are an outrage. All liberals htat will give no quarter to conservatives.

    But you suggest a debate about this, I doubt there will be any.

    • Don’t under estimate the stupidity of the American voter. They elected a black politician from Chicago as president and the have elected city mayors over and over again who have bankrupted their cities.

  3. American newspeople are cream puffs. Romney just told the moderator that he didn’t care what the question was, he was going to give his canned speech.

    Too bad we can’t get a BBC reporter. I heard an interview by a BBC reporter and it went like this:

    BBC: Question

    Politician: Ducked question

    BBC: Rephrase the same question

    Politician: Ducked the rephrased question

    BBC: Changed it into a yes/no question

    Politician: Once again ducked

    BBC: “I guess we’ll take that as a ‘no.'”

    I wish our reporters would be that steadfast, but of course,
    if they ask a challenging question, they’re accused of being biased,
    so they run away with their tails between their legs.

      • Billy: You’re probably onto something. Certainly wouldn’t want to alienate the people who are going to spend BILLIONS on this campaign. (Again, I’m glad I don’t have TV.)

          • Well. . .

            Bimbo Carlson’s mental slapstick is stranger than fiction. . .no, wait, it IS fiction. . .but, yeah.

            Anyway, that’s why I’m bugging Nate to give us a more inclusive Weltanshauung.

            • Somehow I think they all (well most) are telling the audience just and only exactly what they want to hear. My favorite has to be Bill Bill O. Poster boy for the Zetas drug cartel. Not saying they couldn’t exist without Bill but he does help keep the profit margin up there.

      • Remember REAL US Dollars — not the FAKE Federal Reserve NOTES (promising nothing of intrinsic value) being falsely copied now-days …as “real” dollars?

        http://www.silvercertificatedollarbill.net/files/2011/06/1308325093-64.jpg

        It was a binding contract between the US Treasury and the American Citizen — that upon DEMAND, paper money would be exchanged for REAL SILVER (or Gold) by ANY US Bank!

        Our original Us Constitution pegged a US Dollar at about 0.75 oz of Silver— and about 0.90 oz of Gold for 20 US Dollars, later on.

        Let’s get back to Silver Certificates and Gold Certificates that GUARANTEE our US Dollars Immutable WORTH (that was proscribed in our Original Constitution — and not have phoney paper notes telling us: “Sure, these are dollars…”)!

  4. Ron Paul is about to Check Mate the Feds Banksters!

    Precious metal prices do not fluctuate (since they have stable intrinsic worth — being nearly ALL extracted from our planet (thus of a FINITE QUANTITY)).

    It is paper notes (touted as real money —that can be man-made in many duplicates— from nearly inexhaustible tree fiber) that fluctuate according to their perceived value compared to the ABSOLUTE Stability of Silver and Gold .

    Unless such “paper money” is backed by a specific Weight Unit of Silver or Gold REPLACEMENT Upon Demand by the Bearer — its value HAS NO MERIT , but is only an indication of the trustworthiness of the ones printing such paper notes.
    ————————————————————————————

    It is up to the people to decide if they should believe what their government says how much their paper notes are worth — or, if the people want their paper money to have a Guarantee that translates into exact exchange of paper to fixed weights of precious metals.

    The crux is — governments, therefore, cannot print MORE money than have in Silver and Gold reserves on hand (or it would be Counterfeit)!

  5. O, I see – they will all be “moderated” by representatives of the biggest group of traitors and cowards ever to inhabit the US – the “main stream media”. Who set this up and why are Americans standing for this possibly decisive onslaught of liberal propaganda? No semblance of fairness

  6. Which US bills would you prefer to be paid with and have?

    A) This one (http://www.silvercertificatedollarbill.net/files/2011/06/1308325093-64.jpg) that states the following from top to bottom:

    SILVER CERTIFICATE

    THIS CERTIFIES THAT THERE IS ON DEPOSIT IN THE TREASURY OF

    THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

    FIVE DOLLARS

    IN SILVER PAYABLE TO THE BEARER ON DEMAND
    ———————————————-

    B) Or this one — look at ANY in your wallet now:

    Federal Reserve NOTE

    United States Federal Reserve System (in a Circle Emblem on the left) and: The United States Of America (on the left)

    FIVE DOLLARS
    ———————————————

    Do the Feds think us this dumb — that we cannot tell the difference by just reading the bills — that the original US Dollars gave us valid EQUITY, while their new “dollar” notes give US empty NOTHINGNESS!

  7. Who in the Republican party agreed to these moderators? Where is Fox News? Are the Republican candidates mad? There will be no fairness in these debates with progressive columnists from PBS, ABC, CNN and CBS.

    • Oh I think they will pitch an equal number of soft ball to both side and they can knock them out of the park but the tough questions won’t be asked.

      • Billy: You’re right.

        The problem with our media is laziness and lack of backbone. They know they can’t even ask a candidate what newspapers they read without being accused of “gotcha journalism.”

        If a BBC reporter were in charge, both candidates would limp away bleeding.

        [By the way, my “Agnew” remark, above, was for Mr. Stork, not for the Disinguished Mr. Malone.]

  8. Hate is like carbolic acid: It eats away, corrodes and destroys. For centuries the Celtics have exploited all other groups, and as the pendulum swings and ‘their tower too will fall,’ the hate-mongers go wild.
