Ron Paul Wins Iowa and Minnesota — my Predictions for the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa

The establishment and mainstream media has dubbed him the "unelectable" candidate. He didn't even get to win any state during the straw polls. But you see, the process is not about the straw polls but about the delegates that will be going to the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida come August. And guess what, it seems the unelectable candidate has been winning a competitive amount of delegate slots. 

It's either first place or a tie for Iowa or Minnesota

Iowa's straw polls have always been important because it has usually been first of all caucuses and at the same time there has been a trend of the winners of landing the White House for candidates like Reagan, Clinton, W. Bush, and more recently Barack Obama. But you see, for most states, delegates are not bound to vote for whoever won the straw polls and this is exactly why the establishment is threatened — Ron Paul, as reported on the video above, will either have a tie or be first place for the numbers of delegates coming from Iowa.

FOX News admits it's "inevitable" for Ron Paul to be part of the ballot in Tampa

As you can see, the media pundits, these same people who have been calling Ron Paul unelectable and ignoring his campaign have no choice but to recognize the fact that he will be on the ballot. I am not saying he is going to be the nominee but there's one thing I can tell you about Ron Paul supporters, as written on the quote above on this blog: "You can quote them; disagree with them; glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them." Eventually, the mainstream media will no longer be able to ignore Ron Paul.

Ron Paul rallies not covered by the mainstream media

I have pointed out before that the supposed front runner Romney has a habit of not being able to fill a room and talking to empty chairs and yet still gets the attention of the mainstream media whereas Ron Paul gets thousands in his rallies, gets the highest donations from those in active military duty of all candidates combined, and yet is the one least talked about.

My Predictions: 

Come August, Ron Paul's delegates will go to Tampa and they will not come alone. Ron Paul's supporters will come from all over the US and outside screaming and chanting "Ron Paul" or "End the Fed" or "President Paul" at the top of their lungs. 

The GOP establishment will try every thing in their power, just as they've been doing, to find technicalities and power so they can prevent Ron Paul's delegates and his supporters from joining the convention and it won't be a conspiracy theory but will be even more blatant than back in 2008. 

They will hire so-called "experts" to talk on mainstream media to misrepresent and misinterpret libertarianism and Ron Paul's platform. The majority will believe them. The only true reports of what's going on will be on alternative and social media and yet most Americans, especially the older generation who's not exposed to social media, will remain apathetic and attached to the Democrat/Republican establishment.

Romney will emerge victorious as the nominee but come November for the elections, because W. Bush has completely destroyed the reputation of the Republican establishment, Obama will win as president of the United States. Nothing will change in spite of Obama's "change we can believe in" rhetoric. The same foreign policy, the same economic and monetary policies, the same degradation of civil liberties.

The World is Losing Faith in the Dollar

As an inevitable consequence of US foreign policy and monetary policy, the world is finally losing faith in the dollar.

Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa during the BRICS Summit have decided to discuss letting go of the dollar as the world's reserve currency. It's interesting that the two likely opponents for the 2012 US presidential elections are not even talking about changing foreign policy or monetary policy — the two direct causes of the debasement of their currency.
"There is no instance of a nation benefiting from prolonged warfare." - Sun Tzu, The Art of War
When the US has to borrow money from China just to sustain their empire-building and endless wars, it is not surprising for China to start losing faith in the dollar, along with the other highly developing countries that are members of the BRICS summit. The US has spent hundreds of billions on their endless wars, or their empire-building, on their embassy in Iraq that's bigger than the Vatican, something that is just economically doomed to fail. The US is broke and a while back they even had to raise their debt ceiling and lead to the downgrading of the dollar. Regardless of the arguments for their policing of the world, they just can't afford it anymore.

And then there's the Federal Reserve, responsible for devaluing the dollar since 1913, who keeps giving their buddies billions of dollars in bailouts. Their ability to print money at will is basically theft from the income of hardworking individuals because the dollar gets debased. Actually, those who advocate the Austrian School of Economics have been predicting this for a long time. Ron Paul has been warning his colleagues in congress about this for 30 years and no one ever listened to him. Also, this form of central banking also funds the foreign policy and policing of the world.

I'm actually getting paid by Google again on the 25th (yes I do get paid just for blogging my thoughts). I am directly affected by this, obviously. In spite of the increase in my revenue, the purchasing power of what I earned did not increase. And it's not just me. Think of all the remittances from our OFWs that are getting devalued as well. And being that the dollar is the "world's reserve currency", they have a direct effect on the currencies and monetary policies of the whole world.

It's only sensible for these 5 countries to lose their faith in the dollar. It's weird though that they want to replace it with some sort of new bank that will just be printing money again and will have as much potential to be corrupt just as the Federal Reserve. They are critical of the IMF or the World Bank and yet their solution is to just create their own IMF or World Bank.

Inevitably, the world will one day realize that this kind of monetary policy is ridiculous and immoral. We need to take out the State's monopoly on money and allow competition and let the market decide what truly has value.

This is a good thing, I guess. Maybe it will make the US wake up and rethink their monetary and foreign policies.

Does Obama Care More About Winning the Elections than Peaceful Treaties on Nuclear Weapons?

Obama doesn't know that the microphone is still on and says something very revealing to Russian president Dmitry Medvedev.

Obama talking to Medvedev

"After my election I have more flexibility," he says. This means that, even when he thinks that there are better policies that can make the world more peaceful and safer, he can't really advocate some of them because  his elections are coming up. It does imply that he cares a lot more about winning the elections and he will do whatever his campaign team tells him rather than advocate principles he believes in. This is very dangerous and sadly this is how politicians always act. They'd rather bend principles for as long as it allows them to stay in power.

Medvedev then replies with "...I transmit this information to Vladimir [Putin], and I stand with you." which sounds so much like a line you'll hear from a spy movie haha (I really can't get over this because I love spy films). 

Romney's Reaction to Obama's Open Mic Incident

And now here comes Romney, the GOP establishment favorite "front-runner" who says "[Russia is] without question our number one geopolitical foe" which I really just don't understand. In a modern world that has seen too much unjust wars and genocide, in a world now aware of diplomacy and trade, why would you say something like that with someone you are currently peacefully trading with. What makes them the number one foe? Who's number two? I'd love to see the list of his hierarchy of foes. Is Iran number two? Maybe Venezuela who recently had alliance treaties with Iran? I just don't understand what he means.

And criticizing Obama for decreasing missile silos in random unnecessary countries they have no sovereignty over is quite contradictory for someone who hates other countries for having missile silos and nuclear weapons. Aside from reducing hostility, I believe reducing missile sites are also very helpful to there economy because they are in so much debt and they just can't afford managing this empire and the policing of the world anymore.

What's interesting though is that both Obama's (source: and Romney's (source: top contributor is Goldman Sachs (one of the biggest beneficiaries of the billion dollar bailouts). And all the other banks and corporations that were bailed out? Name them and they'll surely be funding both the Democrat and Republican nominee for the 2012 presidential elections. And this isn't some conspiracy theory. They're actually quite transparent about where they get their contributions. So I guess sometimes transparency isn't enough to show people how blatant these lobbyists are able to affect domestic and foreign policy. 

You didn't wonder why Obama kept most of Bush's economic policies and even the heads of Treasury department and the infamous chairman of the Federal Reserve? Again, it's not a conspiracy, all of these individuals can be easily linked to Goldman Sachs and other big lobbyist corporations.

And that one guy I've been talking about who's been battling this kind of politics for 30 years, regardless if they laugh at him in national television, regardless of the marginalization and ignorance of the media and the establishment, regardless of his untainted voting record in congress even when at times he would vote alone or only with a few against the whole congress, Ron Paul, the only one who's really different among all candidates: it's as if the Americans don't want him. I've written several times on this 30 years of consistent principled integrity and if you are too lazy to read them then I just wish that you'd at least check out the videos I have posted about him.

Policies are not decided by voters. In fact, voting is an illusion for both candidates will be funded by the lobbyists anyway. And how about Ron Paul? Where does he get his campaign funds? He gets it first and foremost from grassroots donations and surprisingly, since he supposedly has the "unpopular" foreign policy, he gets the biggest donations from active duty military personnel more than all three other candidates combined.
