With this in mind, follow me here. There is a certain channeling medium, Blossom Goodchild, whom is predicting (from contact with this supposed alien race) massive UFO sightings and contact with this alien nation on October 14, 2008.

(This person may be perfectly normal, just being used in a certain way or heck who knows what. Is that possible you think?) OK, now, staying with me, for this goes far, I know, let's look at what has happened in history on the 14th of October in years passed, at least based on our 'modern' Gregorian calendar**:<br><br><i>* Oct. 14 1582 - Because of the implementation of the Gregorian calendar <b>this day does not exist in this year</b> in Italy, Poland, Portugal and Spain.<br>* Oct. 14 - 1789 - George Washington proclaims the first Thanksgiving Day.<br>* Oct. 14 - 1933 - Nazi Germany withdraws from The League of Nations.<br>* 1957 - Queen Elizabeth II becomes the first Canadian monarch to open the Parliament of Canada with the Speech from the Throne.

Yet, for Mayans, 13 is the holiest of numbers- why? Ahh..<br><br>Interestingly enough, the Freemasons (torch bearers many say of the gone under-ground Templars) also used 13 in many of their designs- for instance within Washington DC.

An "October Surprise" as Ron Paul calls it or perhaps nothing but a dry run, yet it is likely something. People do not broadcast this kind of stuff unless there is a "reason" of one sort or another. Sorry, I myself have no answers for you.

In Mark 13:6-8 Jesus tells us:<br><br><i>"6 Many will come on the basis of my name, saying, ‘I am he,’ and will mislead many. 7 Moreover, when YOU hear of wars and reports of wars, do not be terrified; [these things] must take place, but the end is not yet. 8 “For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, there will be earthquakes in one place after another, there will be food shortages.

Why now is this trend in currencies going local seemingly happening? What does our weak USD have to do with it?<br><br><b><i>Hundreds</i></b> of years ago, countries often had local currencies, not just one national currency for all matters. Each Baron or Lord very well would have had his own coins and mint. Naturally, having one agreed upon promissory note to pay with is much more agreeable. Yet why then are "local currencies" popping up, seemingly all around the world.<br><br>From Massachusetts to the United Kingdom, we see this happening. Is it a trend? Here is a nice video report from May 19, 2008 on this very subject:<br><br><a href=http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/world/2008/05/19/boulden.uk.local.currency.cnn>A very local currency</a><br>SOURCE: CNN.COM<br><br><i>"A small English town wants to experiment with its own currency to boost the local economy."</i> What is wrong with the weakening British pound (Weaker against the euro)?<br><br>Nothing however has been tanking like our US dollar. The worlds oil currency (USD) has lost more than 30% to the euro. And as the dollar goes south, the price of raw oil rises, giving us a double whammy, for we must purchase oil in these very USD's that are weakening. Not that starting local currencies in the United States would help- heck, this "trend" would take us back in time- but would it? The fact that communities are doing it, says something and maybe it is more than just a marketing gimmick.<br><br>Some argue and honestly it does make a lot of sense, that local currencies are the way to go. Take this paragraph from a local currency conference report titled, "Local Currencies in the Twenty-First Century: Understanding Money, Building Local Economies, Renewing Community";<br><br><i>"The most sustainable economy would be one in which the goods consumed in a region are produced in the same region using local resources and local labor. Ernest Fritz Schumacher referred to such a system as “an economy of permanence.” His 1974 book Small is Beautiful: Economics as if People Mattered, remains the most compelling case for building vibrant regional economies as a counterpoint to our increasing reliance on far flung global production systems."</i> - Susan Witt and Christopher Lindstrom<br>SOURCE: <a href=http://www.smallisbeautiful.org/local_currencies/2004_conference_report.html>The E. F. Schumacher Society</a><br><br>We work to make money to feed our family and to save for a rainy day. We are people. It makes sense that we work for the betterment of people within our family and our immediate community.

Those few have access to the newly created money first, before its value is diluted.<br><br>For example: Before the breakdown of the Bretton Woods system, CEO income was about 30 times the average worker's pay. Today, it's closer to 500 times. It's hard to explain this simply by market forces and increases in productivity. One Wall Street firm last year gave out bonuses totaling $16.5 billion. There's little evidence that this represents free market capitalism." <br>SOURCE: www.ronpaul2008.com <br><br><br><br> Ron Paul & Economics - Saving the Economy; Saving America <br><br><br><br> A lot is being said about the economy these days and for good reason. Even at the last S.C. Fox debate (I believe it was) they were talking about the "Reagan Revolution" and even Mr. Obama is playing up to this. Ron Paul's campaign manager should jump on this and have Ron say every time the Reagan Revolution is mentioned and how great he was and what he did for our economy, something like: Yes, the Reagan Revolution was great, some twenty years ago. We are offering similar, which my supporters have coined the "Ron Paul Revolution" and is available today! <br><br>A lot could be said about late president Reagan and congressman Paul. Let's dig in deeper though into what is happening today and how Ron Paul can help us as president with the economy.<br><br>Congressman Paul, a fiscal conservative, sits on the Joint Economic Committee. Recently, back in November of 2007, they (members of the Joint Economic Committee) got to question Mr. Bernanke (See video below). Here is how the ABCNews article below, titled, "Paul vs. Bernanke on Value of the Dollar" reported it. "During today's testimony questions from most senators and representatives on the committee had to do with the housing crisis and whether a recession was in the offing. But when Paul squared off with Bernanke, things were a bit different." Right away you see he does not ask the layman questions, "is it going to be ok" or "can we make it" but he will get right into specifics and technical details.<br><br>Ron Paul went on further to say; "There's a dollar crisis out there and people's money is being stolen; people who have saved, they're being robbed. I mean, if you have a devaluation of the dollar at 10 percent, people have been robbed at 10 percent. But how can you pursue this policy without addressing the subject that somebody's losing their wealth because of a weaker dollar? And it's going to lead to higher interest rates and a weaker economy."<br><br>We are in, what could become, the perfect (not so perfect in terms of our standard of living) storm. High oil prices, a weak U.S. dollar, the housing bubble has burst (meaning a general banking crisis could be on the verge and certainly lending will be curtailed.) and what is now starting to be called a recession. People are careful to use the "R" word, yet it is being used and the stock market is taking a beating. Although inflation figures are up, the general feel of inflation is much worse, for although our pay is slightly up, the value of our USDollar is way down.<br><br>Government intervention is generally a bad thing. President Bush just announced today a temporary tax relief package. It will equal to, get this, 1 percent of America's GDP (Gross Domestic Product) which is, well, about $140 billion. Now, do not get me wrong, we need to help families that really need it, but how can our government outlay more, 1% more (which is a lot) of our GDP into _trying_ to keep the bubble full of air, hot or otherwise? Where does this money come so easily from? A printing press (more-or-less)<br> CNN.com article temp tax relief plan <br><br> Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press in around 1456 in Germany to help spread God's word, so that he could mass produce the Bible and let the common man be freed, of a spiritual nature. This same printing press process (little has changed with the concept of printing since those days) will be used to press green ink on paper, costing not all that much- they will, as all of wish we had the ability to do, simply print that money they are so graciously giving us. Say no thank you. Please do not just treat the symptoms if you can cure the problem (why create more debt?!). So, what would Ron Paul do? <br><br> Ron Paul would lower taxes , dramatically, by heavily reducing the size of our government. As he says, "Working Americans like lower taxes. So do I. Lower taxes benefit all of us, creating jobs and allowing us to make more decisions for ourselves about our lives." In addition to less civil servants, he would bring back the 130 "bases" we have around the world (unless absolutely needed AND the host government wants us there), saving us a whooping 1 TRILLION dollars every year, he would not tax "tips" at all, freeing up much more spending power and drastically re-organize or do away with the Federal Reserve- the very people, printing that money as I type this. (Mind you, the Federal Reserve is actually owned by mainly foreign business and individuals, not our government, not you or I- others whom may have different values, ideas or goals than we do.<br>Read Ron Paul's piece on the Federal Reserve, titled "Monetary Policy is Critically Important": Here <br><br>Basically, Dr. Paul's plans would very quickly help our economy without the need to wildly print money, thus creating of course debt and the often un-seen "Inflation Tax." There is much more he would do, such as peg the dollar on a "gold standard" like system, keep us out of a degrading NAFTA plan and their plans to scarp the USD to create the Canadian, Mexican and American joint currency, the AMERO. He would encourage free trade with all countries around the world and would not impose our ideals on them, unless they ask. Who are we to judge them, to dictate how to do things? Ron Paul would truly get to the business of saving us from this potentially perfect storm. Good thing it is an election year, for that may prop up the economy a bit as well, but the seas on the horizon look rough.<br><br>As mentioned above, ABCNews wrote a fair piece about Ron Paul's questioning of Mr. Bernanke from a few months ago. It shows Dr. Paul's leadership capabilities, by breaking ranks with the rest of congress and bringing to light the very nature of the problem, not just sweeping it under their very expensive, CEO paid-for carpets. It should be noted, basically no other main stream news outlet carried this story, which is sad, amazingly sad. Read the article here:<br> Paul vs. Bernanke on Value of the Dollar <br>There is also a nice video below of this stellar round of questioning from congressman Paul at the end of this webicle(article).<br><br>My grandfather used to say he had a money tree in the back yard. Our government *really* does, once again, called a printing press (and the Federal Reserve monetary system) and it is printing us (and lending us) into massive debt with no sight in end with just about any of the presidential candidates, accept Ron Paul. The debt is at about $30,000 per U.S. resident! US Debt Clock k/ Or an incredible figure, ever rising it seems of about $9,193,053,268,365.71 !!! <br><br>I look forward to hearing more directly what Ron Paul thinks of president Bush's tax relief plan- yet I guess we can guess what he would say. We heard for instance that yesterday in Nevada, Dr. Paul was calm and stuck to his message of federal spending cuts as one of the first needed steps to a better economy. Not printing more cash<br><br>Johannes Gutenberg, the founder of the modern printing press was quoted as saying, "Religious truth is captive in a small number of little manuscripts which guard the common treasures, instead of expanding them. Let us break the seal which binds these holy things; let us give wings to truth that it may fly with the Word, no longer prepared at vast expense, but multitudes everlastingly by a machine which never wearies to every soul which enters life." Ron Paul, the PaulRevolution is offering us Americans a similar freedom- a U.S. government that is run strictly by the constitution, offering truly freedoms and liberties for all.<br><br>--- --- --- end --- --- ---<br>"Ron Paul on CNBC's Kudlow & Company 3-20-08 7pm est discusses why we should abolish the federal reserve":<br><br> <br><br><br>Dr. Paul vs. Mr. Bernanke Sun, 23 Mar 2008 16:40:21 +0000 Top U.S. Investor, Jim Rogers- pulling out for Asia http://RonPaul.myfeedportal.com/i/top_us_investor_jim_rogers_pulling_out_for_asia March 16, 2008<br><br><font size="4"><b>Top U.S. Investor, Jim Rogers- pulling out for Asia</b></font><br><br><font size="2.75">As he claims, Asia is like New York was back at the turn of the century, "full of excitement."

Seeing this video on John McCain, posted above, brought that great hit song by Dire Straights to mind, <a href=http://www.top40db.net/Lyrics/?SongID=85104&By=Year&Matc> "your money for nothing"</a>. Maybe it was the old memories of one of MTV's first VJ's, <a href=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_Curry> Adam Curry</a> (Does he actually age?) or something more immediate, like my actual well-being. Yet money for nothing seems like a good deal for many, like that money tree my grandfather always talked about. And it appears this is what John McCain would want, if he were to become president.<br><br>Before you jump up and down and get all excited, no, that is not a good thing- especially because of the way our monetary system works today. Now, I know this is shocking, for that would mean the banking system as you know it would be abolished and well, that is exactly what Ron Paul has planned, yet somehow I guess that is not what John McCain had in mind, for he has no plans out there that I have seen for this. You see, if we had no interest rate, that would basically mean that money would be able to be created from the absolute of absolute of nothing- for then there is NOTHING backing the greenback, the good 'ole American dollar, otherwise know as the USD.<br><br>Excuse me for caring, but hold on now, that means that those "with credit" of the sufficient amount, could create money out of thin air? NO, could it be true? PLEASE, tell me it is not so... Yes, it is. Debt=Money and that is how we run our economy and create 'new' money since the gold standard was dropped, which used to back our currency. So, yes, the preverbal money tree does exist and if you have enough credit, you can create a lot and if you invest properly, you can be A-OKAY. Or is it that simple?<br><br>Ron Paul is also a presidential candidate and he has some very sound ideas on the economy and as congressman sits on the Joint Economic Committee. "It's the economy stupid" has been said time and time again in the press- time they looked at what Ron Paul would do. It is not an economy based on unsustained growth, yet an economy based on US, America. It is based on the United States Constitution and within the limits of what the founding fathers expected- not what we have today, a USD that is worth less and less.<br><br>Read this article titled, <a href=http://ronpaul.myfeedportal.com/viewarticle.php?articleid=37>"Ron Paul & Economics - Saving the Economy; Saving America" here.</a> Here we can see the sound ideas of Dr. Paul on the economy, not just pandering to the cameras.<br><br>The charging of interest rates is actually seen as evil in many religions and many Christians at one time had to go to others, like the Jews or Templars to get money lent to them. It was so with early Christians and is still so in for many Islamic banks- they do not charge interest. An economy based on common goals and with a currency that is backed by 'something meaningful' wether it is silver or even the promise of a service could mean money could be loaned to us again at zero interest, yet this would take some major changes and so far the only one who has talked the talked and walked the walked and would make such changes is Ron Paul.<br><br>As it has been said time and time again in our lives by people wiser than us, "nothing is for free in life" and not even money Mr. McCain. In all seriousness money for nothing sounds great, but when you really think about it, it just does not make sense. Even in the song "Money For Nothing" by Dire Straights "they" had to do something to get the money- play guitar. Darn, wish I learned how to do that- no, wait, maybe McCain will be president than I won't have to do anything- just create money! Ah, then I woke up.

Which Republican shall prevail there. I can not say, but let us look at what Google Trends tells us (Who is searching for whom on the internet) and some, no pun intended, strong trends shall become clear.<br><br>Keep in mind, Google amounts to about 75% (perhaps more) of all searches done on the world wide web any given day...<br><br>Republican Candidates - Florida Google Searches:<br><a href="http://www.google.com/trends?q=Ron+Paul%2C+John+McCain%2C+Mike+Huckabee%2C+Rudy+Giuliani%2C+Mit+Romney&ctab=0&geo=US&geor=usa.fl&date=ytd&sort=0">Click Here to see Google Trend Chart on Republican Presidential Candidates - Florida</a><br><br>Ron Paul in California (Google Search Race)<br><a href="http://www.google.com/trends?q=Ron+Paul%2C+John+McCain%2C+Mike+Huckabee%2C+Rudy+Giuliani%2C+Mit+Romney&ctab=0&geo=US&geor=usa.ca&date=all&sort=0">Click Here to see Google Trend Chart on Republican Presidential Candidates - California</a><br><br>This does not flat-out predict votes, however is truly staggering, as far as I can see, as Dr. Paul is so far ahead in these internet queries. If this gauge is even partially true, than Ron Paul will do far better than expected in two of our nations sunniest places, Florida and California. (It is a Disney conspiracy, surely!)<br><br>Now, who is leading from both Democrats and Republicans? Good question. See here for who will lead the race for the presidency, well, at least in Google searches:<br><a href="http://newsusa.myfeedportal.com/viewarticle.php?articleid=31">Click Here to see Google Trend Chart on ALL Presidential Candidates - United States</a><br><br>In closing, it is clear, as we can read here <a href="http://pewresearch.org/pubs/689/the-internets-broader-role-in-campaign-2008">(www.pewreseacrh.org)</a><br>that 25% or so of all Americans use the internet to make choices about the election. An even higher 42% of young adults are using the internet to get information on the candidates. So now we have some variables to play with and we can see that the young voters are the most important for Ron Paul and many other candidates as well.<br><br> Mon, 28 Jan 2008 17:02:18 +0000
