World Savior Ron Paul’s Media Empire Is Born In Lowly Internet Teevee Thing

Libertarian yard leprechaun Ron Paul retired from Congress in January after three attempts at the presidency and exactly one bill passed of the 464 he sponsored in the House.

Ron Paul has gotten himself an internet channel and for 10 bucks a month he will rub his convictions all up in your intellectual revolution. The Ron Paul Channel launched yesterday and it is clear that the man has some interesting plans for your computer time.

Ron Paul Just Doesn’t Get Why The GOP Can’t Let Him Have Everything

Remember when we told you about all of those “factions” that the GOP has created and is now desperately trying to control and is whining about to the New York typists? Some of them, as it turns out, are easier to control than others. Like Ron Paul fans, who will not be placated because Ryan references the gold standard and because people shout “USA! USA!” at them whenever they try to nominate their candidate. What do they think this is, a political convention wherein members of their party nominate candidates of their choice according to a set of fixed rules and regulations? No, it is not anything like that; it is a teevee show of a coronation, and it’s Mitt’s Time. Read more on Ron Paul Just Doesn’t Get Why The GOP Can’t Let Him Have Everything…

Ron Paul Wants To Know How Much Gold the U.S. Has RIGHT NOW

He “believes it’s ‘a possibility’ that there might not actually be any gold in the vaults of Fort Knox or the New York Federal Reserve bank.” Our financial institutions are filled with fake gold! That giant boulder is going to start rolling after us as soon as Ron Paul finds out the gold is fake. Read more on Ron Paul Wants To Know How Much Gold the U.S. Has RIGHT NOW…

Ron Paul Doesn’t Care About (Giving Medals to) Black People

That is the one vote cast against giving Rosa Parks the Congressional Gold Medal of Honor, and it was cast by Mr. Ron Paul on April 20, 1999. This isn’t exactly breaking news but we were reminded of it today (it’s apparently been making the email rounds at a couple lobbying houses) — Ron just hates giving out medals! He even gave a little speech: Read more on Ron Paul Doesn’t Care About (Giving Medals to) Black People…
 

Ron “Gold Standard” Paul’s 19th Century economic policies would lead to a stronger dollar. Or, uh, hyperinflation, if the government’s gold-hoarding didn’t go well. [CurrencyTrading.net]
