I just wish the candidates would be respectful of eachother like at the Al Smith trubute and during the debates put forth their plans and how likely they would be to get them implamented. As Joe Friday use to say in the old dragnet TV series : "Facts just the facts!"
Here's why immediate action is critical: To get the economy through this year's elections, a panicky Congress, Treasury, and the Federal Reserve Bank have implemented a series of emergency actions. In addition to artificially (and temporarily) suppressing the price of gold and silver with tools like the super-secret government mechanism known as the Exchange Stabilization Fund (and tools like the President's "Plunge Protection Team"), they have already printed and pumped over a trillion more inflationary, funny money dollars into the U.S. financial system. When its "simulative" effect wears off, the "you-know-what" is going to hit the fan -- Big Time.
Alan Greenspan just confessed the unfolding liquidity crisis is a "once-in-century event," while former Treasury official (and now columnist) Paul Craig Roberts recently noted "Financially the U.S. is not an independent country... the U.S. is bankrupt."
