book - the case for gold, ron paul & lewis lehrman In 1982, Ron Paul served on the U.S. Gold Commission to evaluate the role of gold in the monetary system. In fact, the Commission was his idea. It was carrying forth a promise made in the Republican platform. Ron couldn't pick the members, so from the beginning, the deck was stacked. The majority was dominated by monetarists, who saw gold as too scarce and paper as just fine. Ron Paul's team was ready, however, with this marvelous minority report. Rarely has a dissent on a government commission done so much good! The result was The Case for Gold, and it was the greatest result of the commission. It covers the history of gold in the United States, explains that its breakdown was caused by governments, and explains the merit of having sound money: prices reflect market realities, government stays in check, and the people retain their freedom. The scholarship and rigor impressed even the critics of the minority. Ron and Lewis Lehrman worked with a team of economists that included Murray Rothbard, so it is hardly suprising that such a book would result. It still holds up as an excellent blueprint for moving beyond paper money and into the age of sound money. In particular, Ron favors complete monetary freedom to use any commodity as money, to make contracts in any money, and an end to the monopolization and printing power of the Federal Reserve. There is a strong piece of history in this book. Not since the 19th century has a political figure made such a sweeping and devastating case for radical monetary reform. This congressman ran circles around even the experts at the Fed. A dazzling performance indeed, and an inspiring and learned book. 245 pages, 6" x 9", paperback

pilars of properity, ron paul book When the economic history of our times is written, one man will emerge as the prophet of both the financial collapse and the disasters associated with government management: Ron Paul. He alone among the political class sounded the warnings and sees the way out.

This economic manifesto (484 pages!), which is a treasure, collects his greatest speeches and debates over the last 30 years, and provides documentary evidence that he is not only a master of the topic; he has provided a coherent explanation of nearly everything the government has done wrong in this area since he first entered public office. He also provides a way out, as implied by the subtitle: free market, honest money, and private property.

Dr. Paul has consistently battled for all three.

Economics is topic about which most politicians are abysmally ignorant. As this books shows, Ron Paul is a master of the topic and the nation's teacher on a vast range of economic issues. He addresses monetary policy during critical times such as the late 1970s inflation mania, and was a lone voice pointing to the real cause of Federal Reserve monetary policy.

Whereas most members of Congress are intimidated by Fed officials, Paul's confrontations with Greenspan are documented here word for word. In addition, he reveals the social and economic effects of loose credit, and shows the ill-effects of bailouts. He addresses high taxes, regulation, trade restrictions, and bravely denounces sanctions against foreign countries for fueling international tensions.

He also explains his view of free trade, for the real thing but against misnamed treaties that embroil international traders in bureaucracy.

He covers welfare, bureaucracy, war, and a a host of other economic topics in what is surely the most comprehensive, intelligent, and revealing book on economics ever written by a U.S. political figure -- all informed by the Austrian tradition of thought that has so influenced his thinking.

book - gold, peace and prosperity. ron paul Ron Paul has been the leading champion of sound money in the Congress. Here he explains why sound money means a new gold standard. The monograph is written in the clearest possible terms with the goal of explaining the basics of paper money and its effects of inflation, business cycles, and government growth. He maps out a plan to bring about a dollar that is as good as gold, one that would be protected against manipulation by government and central bankers. Part of that strategy is the minting of a new gold one but the more far-reaching plan involves a redefinition of the dollar and complete monetary competition. This monograph first appeared in 1981, and it has been in wide distribution ever since. Henry Hazlitt writes the introduction, and Murray Rothbard writes the preface. 57 pages, 6" x 9", paperback

What Has The Government Done To Our Money?
Murray N. Rothbard.
His unique plan for making the dollar sound again still holds up. Some people have said: Rothbard tells us what is wrong with money but not what to do about it. Well, by adding this essay, the problem and the answer are united in a comprehensive whole.

After presenting the basics of money and banking theory, he traces the decline of the dollar from the 18th century to the present, and provides lucid critiques of central banking, New Deal monetary policy, Nixonian fiat money, and fixed exchange rates. He also provides a blueprint for a return to a 100 percent reserve gold standard.

The book made huge theoretical advances. He was the first to prove that the government, and only the government, can destroy money on a mass scale, and he showed exactly how they go about this dirty deed. But just as importantly, it is beautifully written. He tells a thrilling story because he loves the subject so much.

The passion that Murray feels for the topic comes through in the prose and transfers to the reader. Readers become excited about the subject, and tell others. Students tell professors. Some, like the great Ron Paul of Texas, have even run for political office after having read it.

Rothbard shows precisely how banks create money out of thin air and how the central bank, backed by government power, allows them to get away with it. He shows how exchange rates and interest rates would work in a true free market. When it comes to describing the end of the gold standard, he is not content to describe the big trends. He names names and ferrets out all the interest groups involved.

Since Rothbard's death, scholars have worked to assess his legacy, and many of them agree that this little book is one of his most important. Though it has sometimes been inauspiciously packaged and is surprisingly short, its argument took huge strides toward explaining that it is impossible to understand public affairs in our time without understanding money and its destruction.

      How the American People have been CONNED by Lawyers. Ralph Boryszewski
      Read about the takeover of the American Government from the first Constitutional Congress by the agents of the British Government, the Esquires! The Lawyers infiltrated all branches of the American government simutaneously corrupting the principal of a Government for the People by the People. We were supposed to have a lay government run by the commoners, yes including the Supreme Court Justices. Shakespeare was right, Kill all the Law. $20.00

      The Great Betrayal
      The General Welfare Clause of the Constitution.
      A 36 page phamplet written by Eustace Mullins protege of Ezra Pound and writer of the Secrets of the Federal Reserve, the original book spurring the revival of the common law movement and the reinstitution of Jeffersonian principals over the fraudulent Federalist movement. This incredible phamplet hits the target to show how the internationalists/Communist infiltrators within our government, have perverted the General Welfare clause of the united States to create a Welfare state based on emtitlements and priviledges rather than a nation based on the rule of law and Rights. A must read for the aspiring patriot, will shed light on the lies of the judicial dragons.

      The Secrets of the Federal Reserve
      AutographedBy Eustace Mullins, a veteran of the U.S. Air Force in WWII and a protege to Ezra Pound. Ezra Pound, the controversial poet who was jailed by FDR for speaking out about Pearl Harbor being an act of Treason staged by FDR and the International bankers to push the U.S. into the War against Germany and Japan. Ezra Pound commissioned Eustace Mullins in 1948, to dig up the dirt on the International Gangsters while being held a political prisoner for 13 years in an Federal Insane Asylum.
      Eustace is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force during WWII and happened to work at the Library of Congress (Nice!). The original book was published under the title Mullins on the Federal Reserve; it was the first published revelation of the secret meetings being held at Jekyll Island by the Bankers who were to draft the Federal Reserve act in 1913. The creation of the Creature known as Federal Reserve has led to the demise of the American Republic. The edifices that have been erected on the backs of the Federal Reserve are the Raw Deal instituted by the traitor FDR and the creation of Monopoly money aka Federal Reserve notes, which has reduced the value of the dollar to 2% since 1913. The use of Federal Reserve notes abrogating the Gold standard which was rescinded by the traitor FDR on April 5, 1933 has led the American People into complete bondage and servitude. Thomas Jefferson once said, "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs."
      The Secrets of the Federal Reserve is the book that has started the modern day patriot movement in America, it may be the sole reason that the American Republic is eventual restored intact with the return of a metal-based currency. Disclosed in the "Secrets" are the connections of the Federal Reserve to the House of Rothschild, the British Crown and Adolph Hitler. It explains the mechanism upon which the Federal Reserve a private banking cartel creates money out of "thin air". Mr. Mullins has of course been harassed for over 50 years by our wonderful government and is near penniless after numerous court battles, threats on his life and even kidnapping. He has even been declared mental incompetent, I guess as a tribute to his mentor Ezra Pound. These copies are Eustace's private stash which has been finally freed up. All the copies purchased here will be autographed by Eustace himself who is still alive and kicking. This is a piece of authentic American history from a True Hero. You of course will also be supporting Eustace directly with any book purchases. To end with the immortal words of Andrew Jackson, the man who stopped the Gangsters, "You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the eternal God, I will rout you out."
