The End is near?


I’ve been reading and posting about Ron Paul a lot lately (his book End the Fed is almost done, go take a look.) Here is a video of him at his most gloomy and doomyist. I think it’s a great video and before anyone dismisses it out of hand, consider these two facts:

The 2000’s were a lost decade with zero job growth. In that same time, we’ve gotten stuck in two wars, the dollar has dropped in value an insane amount, the economy collapsed, and almost instantly the banking industry became insanely profitable again. At this time we are looking at 10% unemployment for years to come and Trillion dollar annual deficits from now on. Shit’s getting worse people, not better.

      Because of the amount of money we spend on killing people overseas is insane. 😦
