Quote of the Day

"Some mistakenly identify the falling home prices as the disease instead of merely a symptom - which they plan to fix with more easy credit and more liquidity to push more unqualified buyers back into the market for homes they still cannot afford. This is akin to the drug addict identifying withdrawal symptoms as his problem and searching for another fix as his solution. The cycle continues and the problems compound themselves. The addiction deepens."

~ Rep. Ron Paul, Texas Straight Talk, 8/4/08

Bravo! Bravo!

Ron Paul actually "gets it." Wish he were in the forefront for the upcoming Presidential election. But, alas, people (in general) don't want to hear (or deal with) the truth.

I sure wish the entire country could grasp Mr. Paul's comment. It would surely make life easier.

More clear thinking from a man who has provided so much for this country. If only we had provided him the platform that he deserved during the primaries. How far could he (and we) have advanced the discussion.
