He seemed grumpy back then because he probably felt like he was the only sane man in the world, just imagine, in Ron Paul's mind, just getting the millions of supporters that he does now, he has already won, that's why I think he's more cheerful now. Either that or he just mellowed with age, lol.

The situation in 1988.
CIA was supporting Bin Laden and crew in their fight against the Soviet Occupation of Afghanistan. Meanwhile the Soviet system was getting financial aid from the US. The US was getting revenge on the Iranians for hostage situation of 1979/80. Iraq was supplied by the US in it's War with Iran. But the US supported the Kurds in their opposition of Saddam and the Baath Party.

And that only scratches the surface.

Ron Paul is handsome!
The only difference between that video and last week's is that he has grey hair in the latter one.
Wow. Thank you, lamborghini_man. What a treat to watch some RP history. It was amazing to see that Dr. Paul still has the same, solid and true views today as he did back then. Truth is timeless. I can't believe how well-behaved those children were in the back of the room. I wonder what they are doing today. Thanks for the posting!
I just got to say that Ron Paul is awesome! He is definitely the same cut of cloth from true patriots that started our country back in the day. All the props in the world and i'll be donating again today!! Go Ron Paul!!!
"There is no one better on Gods green earth than Ron Paul..No one!
Wow just wow.
The Real Question: "Will Americans Throw Off The Chains of 100 Years of Debt Slavery & Tax Bondage in 2012?" --Google that!
Ron Paul, the Mighty Quinn!
When Paul the congressman gets here, everybody's gonna jump for joy!
When Paul the congressman gets here, all the people gonna run to him!
But when Paul the congressman gets here, everybody's gonna do anything but doze!
Come all without, come all within, you'll not see nothing like the Mighty Paul.
School's fine. Just don't let it get in the way of thinking. -Me
Like watching history in the making...
The color of his eyebrows haven't changed just like his consistent principles

Can you imagine what it would be like today if people had snapped out of it then. Things have to get worse before they get better I suppose. By that logic things should be getting better real soon...I hope.
LOL! Two trillion dollar deficit he said! What I would give for that. He sheds a little light on the truth of the Reagan years for me. I was a child at the time and only know the praise Reagan gets from the right. A little more study is in order I suppose. I am all the more endeared to Ron Paul for his steady voice of truth in the empire of lies. Dr. Paul or none at all in 2012!

From A Few Listeners To Millions. Indeed a journey to a thousand miles begin with a step. Ron Paul is truly a remarkable president. He just speaks the truth. If only the whole world would know him. Perhaps we all be attending to our passion instead of thinking of all the bills, regulations, imminent war, work, mortgage, inflation, vanishing middle class, environment degradation etc.
"When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty."
Everyone is welcome you are all my brothers and sisters. We can beat the Elite its our time to take this country back. Go Ron Paul 2012
Ah, I'd love to watch this whole thing right now but have to study! This is one I haven't seen.... haha, but I've gotta say - tough crowd! No chanting about ending the fed or anything...
I've only seen half of the first video but it sounds almost verbatim to what he's saying now...
I'd be real interested, however, in hearing him talk about what he's learned since 1988. In this video he says the same thing he says now "we're at the end of an era... the idea has failed... we were prosperous because we were wealthy, now we've used all that wealth and have reached bankruptcy... you may not have jobs"... and that was 24 years ago. So I wonder why it lasted so much longer than he predicted.... Is it because they hadn't reached the 'sovereign debt' crisis that reaches into Europe like we have now?
"You must be frank with the world; frankness is the child of honesty and courage...Never do anything wrong to make a friend or keep one...Above all do not appear to others what you are not" - Robert E. Lee, CSA
My answer is that he underestimated the ability for the Fed to patch up the bubble, which it was able to do in the early 90s and once again in at the end of the Dot Com bubble. The bubble was only transferred to a new segment of the economy and now there is little chance for that bubble to be transferred to a new segment. He may have also underestimated that the world would import the inflationism as they continued to accept dollars for the export led growth which took off in the '90s and '00s.
The electronics and telecommunications industries were also important developments since there was massive growth potential and helped improve otherwise tough economic conditions. But, of course, low interest rates and inflationism caused massive malinvestment in these industries and would later be transferred to the housing market.
I've heard that we recovered from the popping of the "Dot-com Bubble" in a matter of months, because the Government didn't step in and "do something."
... the dollar acted as the world's reserve currency that the Fed could over-extend their monetization thus far into this century. It will all come winding down and they know it - that's why they're forever preparing for their one world currency. The federal reserve is just a tool in the hands of the global banking cartel. They make use of, they dispose... then they replace.
been known back then: the lock-step global financial structure in which all centralized banking systems support the fraud mutually, even to the point of bailing out those who fall down the drain quicker than the rest. The looting has gone viral among all governments, the scale of deception and acceptance of trillions in debt as "normalcy" could not have been imagined.
Thanks for linking these! It's incredible to hear how similar his views then are to what they are now. World's most consistent politician is right :D
