Ron Paul – Hey Fed! It’s The Free Market Stupid, Pt I

"In 1971 it happened, and that’s when I started speaking out [about the Fed.] Really nobody listened. There were a lot of seeds planted about sound money, especially by Murray and others, and Mises. They talked about this. There was no audience out there. I would go to campuses, when I first went into Congress, and I would get 20 or 30 people come out and maybe convert one or two."

HealthCare.gov Is Proving Why It’s Best To Leave Government Out Of The Marketplace

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The reason I bring that up is because Apple can get away with that. They have engineers that are doing this for profit. They have engineers whose very livelihoods and you could almost say lives are on the line if they don’t fix whatever that glitch was and get it right. The people that are engineers at HealthCare.gov, they don’t have any vested interest in this. It won’t matter to them whether it works or doesn’t work. You can’t fire a government employee. Hell, I don’t even know if you can fire a government contractor. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Just Admit Defeat Already, Obamacare Should Be Reformed, Not Repealed

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – One of the things that we talk about here on this show that I think distinguishes it from others is that there is no partisan solution. First of all, the conservative does not believe there is a political solution to life. Let me repeat that. The conservative does not believe that there is a political solution to life’s problems. Life’s problems have to be experienced and worked out by individuals. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Real Christian Charity Is Needed Today

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In other words, what the original progressive charitable people wanted to do was eliminate all the slobs out there, eliminate all the people that weren’t them. In other words, let’s build a master race right here in the United States. We won’t have any poor people and we won’t have to have any philanthropy or charity. The problem with charity is it creates more poor people, in other words, and more people in need. Screw the least of these, which explains the attitude, the death culture behind abortion.

Obamacare Is Un-Insuring Americans Faster Than It’s Insuring Them

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Folks, are you noticing a trend here? None of this crap has anything to do with actually doctoring or nursing, none of it. PPO, HMO, EPO, HMS, all these things, HealthCare.gov, exchange plan, change this, plan that, extended care, early care, none of this has anything to do with needles and syringes and stethoscopes and sphygmomanometer (I think that’s what the gizmo is called that does the blood pressure). It doesn’t have anything to do with any of this. It all has to do with lawyering, doesn’t it, and accounting. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Rep. John Lewis Compares Obamacare Opponents And Nullification Proponents To The Civil Rights Era Of The ’50s

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Quite possibly for the first time in the history of the United States, there is an edict that has been issued by our almighty federal overlords who are camped out on the banks of the Potomac River in what I like to refer to as Mordor on the Potomac River. For the first time, they may have actually achieved what it was that they set out to do, which was to assume some manner of control over the personal lives of all 310 million citizens.

The Affordable Care Act – More Lies, Deceptions, And Regulations

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Some of us have been telling you all along that the only reason and the only way this thing passed was that it passed with the blessing, and I would say with the great excitement and anticipation of, number one, large chains and large hospital organizations, and number two, large insurance companies that are going to ultimately provide most of the exchange coverages.

Obamacare Should Have Asked Amazon.com For Help

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is what is amazing to me. What did you expect it to be able to do? It would be too much to ask, wouldn’t it, that the powers that be inside Mordor on the Potomac River would, I don’t know, maybe ask the people that built the Amazon website to give them a hand? That one seems to be able to deliver products to tens of millions of people on a timely basis, doesn’t it? It seems to be able to process payments, doesn’t it? It seems to be able to process customer concerns, doesn’t it? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Congress Has A Few Patriots, But The Rest Are Just Fighting For Their Slice Of Leviathan Pie

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Don’t be living in the ethereal fantasy world that these guys are actually holding the line for the reasons that you and I hold near and dear. There are obviously other political concerns here. There is the divvying up of the $3.8-trillion-pound pie that’s really what is going on here. Each side is fighting for their slice. There are some in the House of Representin’ that are fighting for the correct causes, I think. Their numbers are small. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

They Love It, They Love It Not – Republicans Need To Pick A Side On Obamacare

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There are a lot more of the Ryans and Boehners and Cantors than there are of the Gohmerts, Amashes, and Massies. Legislatively speaking, you don’t have a leg to stand on. The other part of this is, and I’ve been pointing this out for the last two and a half years: Why are people like Paul Ryan and others running around saying they have parts of the Affordable Care Act that they’re absolutely enamored with?

Free Market Chickens Would Be Safer Than USDA Chickens

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - When you take out the one entity, in this case the USDA, that can't be sued if they approve tainted meat then you will have safer foods. Why? Because if another company was approving chickens for consumption and they screwed up, they could be sued, and they DO NOT want to be sued, eventually they'll go out of business from enough lawsuits. Even if the chickens make it to a restaurant and they've gone bad you have the option of suing the restaurant, which can then in turn sue the company it got the chickens from. And again, no one wants to spend all of their time in the courts with lawsuits. So the bottom line here is that once you get rid of the organizations that CAN'T be sued, you'll have safer meat.

Obamacare – An Austrian Economics Lesson

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In Human Action, you learn one of the principles of the Austrian economists is you can’t predict what people are going to do. A scheme like the Affordable Care Act is what you should call a planned market. It is a centrally-planned market. Centrally-planned markets don’t work. They do not deliver what it is they are created to deliver. They don’t deliver it because they can’t. It is impossible to predict human action, thus the title.

Obamacare + Preexisting Conditions = Bankruptcy

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If Cigna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Empire, Blue Cross Health, Aetna, whatever other major medical insurance providers, if they could not in their experience since major medical became HMOs and PPOs and what have you, if they could not divine a way to cover people with preexisting conditions at the premiums that we are currently suffering under and maintain a profit, how is the federal government, which can’t run anything even remotely like that, how is the government going to do it?

Starbucks’ Gun Policy Isn’t About Gun Control, It’s About Property Rights

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – You’re supposing the right of the patron or the prospective patron to enter or do business into said business is superior to the right of the property owner and the person who had the capital, bought the property, bought the coffee beans, bought the gizmo that makes the espresso, who took his money out of his pocket and is hiring the labor and training the labor before the business opens. This is all on the private property owner. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Raise The Minimum Wage, Destroy The Market

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Any wage control damages a market because it has an effect on the price mechanism. Wage is part of the price mechanism, too. Your ability as a businessperson to set the wage, this is part of the price mechanism. This is how you arrive at how much to sell the donut for. The labor cost, that goes into the price mechanism. Anytime the government comes in and sets the price, it is altering forever the market economy. It’s going to have unintended consequences. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Discrimination Is Okay As Long As It’s Against A White Dude

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – How can Hooters get away with banning or refusing to serve Mayor Filner? I’m not making any excuses, and I’m not going to, for Filner’s un-gentlemanlike, boorish behavior. That’s not even at issue here. What is at issue is that Mayor Filner is most certainly of a distinct racial group and gender. It’s undeniable. So in 2013, discrimination is indeed, not only is it permitted, there are people out there that are cheering this on. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Americans Can Say We Live In A Free Market Economy, But That Doesn’t Make It True

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – You have to have trust in the price system and the market. That’s really one of the great fields of unexplored study in mainstream discourse in the United States, the study of actual free market, the way markets work and the way the price system is the greatest regulator and distributor of resources in the history of man.

Student Loans Belong In The Market, Not The Government

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Once something becomes law, even if the Republican Party opposed it, they will ultimately find a way to make it their own, and it will then become a part of conservatism. Sure enough, student loans have now become part of a conservative policy in the House of Representin’, I guess. Members of the GOP are demanding that action be taken immediately to spare those students out there the unbelievable horror and fate of their interest rates, on the free money that was granted to them by the federal government, doubling.

Social Security Disability Could Learn From Aflac And Other Private Companies Who Aren’t Broke

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “Congress faces 2016 deadline to save Social Security’s disability program.” Now hold on just a cotton-picking moment there! What do you mean save the Social Security’s disability program? Where’s the trust fund? I thought that there was a trust fund out there. I thought this thing was solvent all the way up until 2033, we were being told just a year ago. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Tennessee Valley Authority – Just Another Entitlement Program

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – It’s all regulated by the state. These things are operated under the supervision of these god-awful things called public service commissions. All they do is ensure that the utility is guaranteed to make a vast, vast profit on the sale. They could still make the profit, but if they had to compete for it, they would then have to actually be out and in the business of marketing. They might have to improve delivery of services. There are all kinds of things that could happen if there was competition for the generation of electricity. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
