Ron Paul : Social Security is not Insurance

December 28, 2010
Perhaps the biggest media story of 2010 was the influence of Tea Party voters on the congressional landscape.  The new congress comes to Capitol Hill with a mandate to end profligate spending and restore fiscal sanity, we are told.  But when the House and Senate convene in January, the newly elected members will face tremendous pressure to maintain spending levels for entitlement programs.  Even the most modest proposals to trim Social Security or Medicare spending will be met with howls of indignation and threats of voter revolt.  Legislators who propose any kind of means testing or increased retirement ages can expect angry visits from senior citizen lobbyists ready to fund a candidate back home who supports the status quo.
But millions of Americans now realize that the status quo is an illusion that will not last even another 10 or 20 years.  The federal government cannot continue to spend a trillion dollars more than it collects in revenue each year, because we are running out of creditors.  Fiscal reality is setting in, and the consequences may be grim even if Congress finds the courage to take decisive action now.
Courage begins with a commitment to see things as they are, rather than how we wish they were.  When it comes to Social Security, we must understand that the system does not represent an old age pension, an “insurance” program, or even a forced savings program.  It simply represents an enormous transfer payment, with younger workers paying taxes to fund benefits.  There is no Social Security trust fund, and you don’t have an “account.”  Whether you win or lose the Social Security lottery is a function of when you happened to be born and how long you live to collect benefits.  Of course young people today have every reason to believe they will never collect those benefits.

Ron Paul : Distorting the Tax Policy Debate

Ron Paul
Texas Straight Talk
December 24, 2010
George Orwell warned us about the use of “meaningless words” in politics, words that are endlessly repeated by sloganeering politicians until they have no meaning at all. Meaningless words certainly were on display during last week’s congressional debate over the latest tax bill.
Over and over again we heard trite, empty phrases like “tax cuts for the wealthiest 2%,” “tax giveaways,” “tax earmarks,” and “borrowing money to give to millionaires.” Time and time again the same falsehoods were presented as fact, and reported as such by a credulous media.
But all of these clich├ęs about taxes are based on the presumption that government has a right to all of your income, and so government “gives” you something when it allows you to keep a portion of that income. To this mindset, tax cuts represent a “cost” to government. After all, they argue, money that really ought to go to the most noble of purposes– wealth redistribution via taxation–is being kept by greedy people and corporations who just don’t want to pay their fair share.

Ron Paul : Paying for Tax Cuts: Whose Money Is It?

Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk 12/19/10




Paying for Tax Cuts: Whose Money is it?

by Ron Paul

George Orwell warned us about the use of meaningless words in politics -- words that are endlessly repeated by sloganeering politicians until they have no meaning at all. Meaningless words certainly were on display last week during congressional debate over the latest tax bill. Over and over again we heard trite, empty phrases like "tax cuts for the wealthiest 2%", "tax giveaways", "tax earmarks", and "borrowing money to give to millionaires." Time and time again the same falsehoods were presented as fact and reported as such by our credulous media.

But all of these cliches about taxes are based on the presumption that government has a right to all your income, so government gives you something when it allows you to keep a portion of that income. To this mindset, tax cuts represent a cost to government. It's argued that money that really ought to go to the most noble of purposes, wealth redistribution via taxation, is being kept by greedy people and corporations who just don't want to pay their fair share.

Far too many Americans truly believe that tax cuts represent a government giveaway, indistinguishable from an outright subsidy or entitlement payment. To combat this mindset we need to be clear with our language. A subsidy, properly understood, occurs when government takes tax dollars and gives them to favored individuals, companies or industry. A tax cut by contrast simply means government takes less from an individual, company or industry. When government takes less from you, it has not given you anything. It merely has harmed you less. This is the critical distinction that has been lost in the endless tired debate about tax policy.

Of course, the bill passed last week did contain some actual spending, mostly in the form of an extension of unemployment benefits for another 13 months. The total spending in the bill amounted to about $60 billion, but the tax savings in the bill, meaning the amount of money that will remain in the hands of the taxpayers rather than being sent to Washington is approximately $850 billion. So while a clean tax bill would have certainly been preferable, the tax relief it contains is significant. It means $850 billion will be spent, saved or invested by American citizens rather than being sent into the black hole known as the federal treasury.

The media however dutifully reported that opposition to the bill came from concerned members of Congress who felt the $850 billion "cost" of the bill was too high and would add too much to the deficit. As always, they could not distinguish between government giving and government taking away. The American people already pay plenty in federal taxes. The deficit is the result of a spending problem, not a revenue problem. Had the bill not passed, millions of Americans would have seen their paychecks shrink in January due to the increased tax withholding. That is the plain and simple truth, and that is why I voted for the bill.

Ron Paul: US Gov is More Dangerous than WikiLeaks

Ron Paul criticized the U.S. government's efforts to shut down WikiLeaks and attack Julian Assange, and compared the murderous consequences of the government's lies to the fact that not a single life has been lost due to the WikiLeaks revelations.

He also commented briefly on the prospects for a 2012 run for the presidency, and on his son Rand Paul moving into his condominium in Virginia.

The Rise of Ron Paul

Once shunned by the mainstream media, made fun of by establishment politicians, and questioned by political pundits, Congressman Ron Paul is finally getting the fifteen minutes of mainstream media fame that his followers say are so well deserved. In a recent NY Times profile, the Republican Congressman was quoted as saying that there is a "50-50 chance" that he will run again. His views on everything from domestic policy, to monetary reform, to US policy abroad are alternative, to say the least, but they seem to be catching on. His message is resonating even more with the rise of the tea party movement, and subsequently, the rise of Ron Paul himself.


Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich are the bravest, most honest politicians in the West. Their action alone can save the US from annihilation and the rest of the world from total chaos. Simple as that.

December 10, 2010 Ron Paul is the last great(honest) statesman.It's interesting that the Federal Reserve Act and the 16th Amendment were "passed" by the SAME congress.REPEAL The Federal Reserve Act of 1913. This will get rid of them and the IRS!The weakest, most ridiculous part of our government is the Supreme Court. It never does anything to impeach all the Congressmen who swear to uphold the Constitution and then renege on their oath, betray the people, commit fraud, commit treason.

Ron Paul on Americas Rotten Banks

Ron Paul is the only true politician that knows what he is talking about. stands up for the people and the American way of life. Loves liberty and freedom ,believes in less govt. intervention.RT talks to Congressman Ron Paul about everything from emergency bailouts, to North Korea, via Sarah Palin.We're already on the road to a depression! Nothing was saved! The bailouts were a stall tactic!Cult of personality...rock star politician larger than life. Ron Paul is the lone voice of reason heard by the people that support him, ignored by his colleagues . He is knowledgeable and gives truth from an insider perspective yet he is still a shill politician corrupted by the system. I am convinced he is a corrupted insider connected at the hip with everyone else through the brotherhood of secret societies. Free masonry corrupts all politicians, religions and government through hidden agendas.


Thanks RT for another great interview. You want "fair and balanced?" RT has both! Also, thanks to KTMP in SF for broadcasting RT throughout the Bay Area,Who ever would have thought that Russia Today would be more credible, more fair and balanced than all US corporate media? They don't push the establishment government line. I need some RT on my cable tv!
