That is one of my points - Ron Paul has to spend the money to move up in the rankings, and, if he moves up he will get more contributions. If he saves the money and doesn't move up he will run a cheap shit, second or third rate campaign and it will all have been for naught. Let's see what he does. But crummy commercials won't do the trick. Jim

Yes sir, that is what I'm saying. The man is known to attract a fringe crowd, countering that with endorsements from clean shaven, well-dressed corporate-looking types would seem to be the ticket to me. But then again, what the hell do I know anyways...

Hey, who am I to argue with another candidate putting money into advertisements. I put long money into Ad Agencies and Media Companies JUST FOR THIS REASON. They are the biggest winners in this election season.

Or he can influence the candidates after the primaries by offering his money to support them if conditions are met. Or shift it to Congressional or party politics. It's not uncommon and we don't call it "special interest" money.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

Federal Reserve "Dollar Sale" meant to hurt Ron Paul, supporters say

U.S. Federal Reserve banks today announced a "Dollar Sale Party '07" event, only two days after GOP primary candidate Ron Paul raised over $6 million during a grassroots "Tea Party '07" fundraising event.

The Fed's stated goal of the Dollar Sale is to remove old dollars from circulation and replace them with freshly-printed new ones. During the event, dollar holders may turn in any denomination bill and receive five new bills of the same denomination.

Ron Paul supporters immediately cried foul, claiming that the move is designed to decrease the purchasing power of Paul's 4th quarter donation money, which has now surpassed $18 million. The purchasing power of the dollar is expected to drop sharply due to the sudden five-fold increase in paper currency.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke denied those accusations and claimed that the Dollar Sale had been planned since last Saturday, one day before Paul's Tea Party event.

Bernanke went further and accused the Paul supporters of hating the poor. "We're giving away free money," Bernanke said. "And somehow that makes us the bad guys?"

The twelve Federal Reserve Banks are private institutions owned in part by foreign interests. The primary role of the Federal Reserve is to print lots of paper money and soak up U.S. workers' excess wages in the form of a federal income tax. A Paul presidency would threaten the Fed's existence because Paul has recommended the creation of competing currencies, effectively ending the Fed's monopoly on the creation of money.

In addition to trying to sabotage Paul's campaign, supporters say, the Dollar Sale might be personal as well. Congressman Paul often verbally bitch smacks Bernanke during congressional hearings.

^ You need to find a new Website. That place is a nothing more than a poor, unimaginitive rip-off of the Onion.
