"Strictly speaking, it probably is not “necessary” for the federal government to tax anyone directly; it could simply print the money it needs. However, that would be too bold a stroke, for it would then be obvious to all what kind of counterfeiting operation the government is running. The present system combining taxation and inflation is akin to watering the milk; too much water and the people catch on."
Dr. Ron Paul
(1935-) American physician, US Congressman (R-TX), US Presidential candidate

Ron Paul for president in 2012!

    An Excellent Analogy. Go Ron Paul...a Real American.
     -- J Carlton, Calgary     
    I am finally hearing him talk REAL sense when it comes to money and it sounds like Dennis Kucinich's idea has really caught his ear; perhaps even to the point of getting rid of the 1/2 of the national debt that is due to the Fed's counterfeiting of the last 100 years, as should be adjudicated on the basis of the Constitution Art. 1, sec. 8, par. 6 (and 5) . I would never have been so bold as to try the 111th's HR6550 as Dennis did...KUDOS and good riddence to the Federal Rerseve private banks, but of course not the regulatory part which will have to be modified a bit when the smoke clears from burning all the Fed's fiat from fractioius, farcical, fiduciary flatulence.

    No wonder the Libs don't like him, he makes too much sense.

    The modern day Barry Goldwater gets it right everytime.

    Ron Paul is one of the few statesmen alive in our Capitol. Almost all others are corrupt politicians or just ignorant of how the world works. The former is the much larger category.
     -- Hal, Kansas city     
    or the orange juice. Mr. paul, your a great man sir. A man of vast vision, and a constitution of iron. Like someone said, a mordern day hero.
