    I cant vouch for the author of this article. An internet search found everything from a respected Russian journalist to a charlatan and con artist. Who knows? Intersting reading tho. Especially the Ron Paul quotes.

    Political scientists from the Russian Political Science Association are reporting today about an ‘unusual’ American Presidential candidate, named Ron Paul, and who is a current US Congressman from the State of Texas, who has so raised the animosity of the United States War Leaders against him that he has been ‘targeted for destruction’ by them.
    Though the election for the next American President is not due to take place until November, 2008, the <st1:country-region><st1:place>United States</st1:place></st1:country-region> procedure for selecting their Presidential Candidates rests upon a series of Primaries where the individual American States select their choices for who will represent them at their Party Conventions.
    This type of election system has in the past ‘chosen’, by default, the Presidential Candidates as early as 9 months prior to the actual Presidential election itself.
    As of this writing there are currently over 20 potential American Presidential Candidates vying for their Parties (Either Republican or Democrat) choice to be their nominee for President of the <st1:country-region><st1:place>United States</st1:place></st1:country-region>, of which Congressman Ron Paul is one of, on the Republican side.
    What has, apparently, and according to these reports, raised the ire of the American War Leaders against Congressman Paul is his anti-war stance and calling for American Troops to be returned from their current wars, all around the World, to America. Congressman Paul has further called for investigations into what caused the <st1:country-region><st1:place>United States</st1:place></st1:country-region> to become embroiled in their World Wars in the first place.
    At the same time as Congressman Paul’s ‘unique’ positions against American Foreign Policy have broken upon the conciseness of the American people these reports state that there has been a ‘surge’ of popular support for him, and his message, which is now resonating with the growing anti-war mood of the war weary citizens of the United States.
    In a United States so locked into a ‘march step’ mentality among its War Leaders, and Politicians, in leading their citizens into further expansion of their World War, Congressman Paul ‘crossed the line’, according to Russian Political Scientists, when he recently stated upon the floor of the United Congress:
    “Patriotism is more closely linked to dissent than it is to conformity and a blind desire for safety and security. Understanding the magnificent rewards of a free society makes us unbashful in its promotion, fully realizing that maximum wealth is created and the greatest chance for peace comes from a society respectful of individual liberty”.
    Congressman Paul’s words eerily echo those of the United States Greatest War Leaders from last century, Dwight Eisenhower and Douglas MacArthur, and who said:
    "It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy, which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear." General Douglas MacArthur, the defeater of the Japanese Empire in World War II.
    "This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence -- economic, political, even spiritual -- is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.
    In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the militaryindustrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
    We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."President Dwight Eisenhower, the Allied General of the Western Powers who defeated the Nazi Empire.
    To the greatest ‘danger’, according to these reports, however, facing Congressman Paul in his open defiance of Americas War Leaders in his advocating the abolishing the United States Federal Reserve System which they have used to finance their World Wars, and as stated in Congressman Paul’s own words:
    "Mr. Speaker, I rise to introduce legislation to restore financial stability to America's economy by abolishing the Federal Reserve. I also ask unanimous consent to insert the attached article by Lew Rockwell, president of the Ludwig Von Mises Institute, which explains the benefits of abolishing the Fed and restoring the gold standard, into the record.
    Since the creation of the Federal Reserve, middle and working-class Americans have been victimized by a boom-and-bust monetary policy. In addition, most Americans have suffered a steadily eroding purchasing power because of the Federal Reserve's inflationary policies. This represents a real, if hidden, tax imposed on the American people.
    From the Great Depression, to the stagflation of the seventies, to the burst of the dotcom bubble last year, every economic downturn suffered by the country over the last 80 years can be traced to Federal Reserve policy. The Fed has followed a consistent policy of flooding the economy with easy money, leading to a misallocation of resources and an artificial "boom" followed by a recession or depression when the Fed-created bubble bursts."
    To such a catastrophic state has the American Economic System fallen that the USA Today News Service reported yesterday:
    "The federal government recorded a $1.3 trillion loss last year — far more than the official $248 billion deficit — when corporate-style accounting standards are used, a USA TODAY analysis shows. The loss reflects a continued deterioration in the finances of Social Security and government retirement programs for civil servants and military personnel. The loss — equal to $11,434 per household — is more than Americans paid in income taxes in 2006.
    "We're on an unsustainable path and doing a great disservice to future generations," says Chris Chocola, a former Republican member of Congress from Indiana and corporate chief executive who is pushing for more accurate federal accounting. Modern accounting requires that corporations, state governments and local governments count expenses immediately when a transaction occurs, even if the payment will be made later.
    The federal government does not follow the rule, so promises for Social Security and Medicare don't show up when the government reports its financial condition.
    Bottom line: Taxpayers are now on the hook for a record $59.1 trillion in liabilities, a 2.3% increase from 2006. That amount is equal to $516,348 for every U.S. household. By comparison, U.S. households owe an average of $112,043 for mortgages, car loans, credit cards and all other debt combined."
    Known also to Congressman Paul, but not to the masses of the American people, is the non-ability of the <st1:country-region><st1:place>United States</st1:place></st1:country-region> to ever recover from this catastrophic debt as the American Nation no longer makes anything the World will buy from them. So tragic has the situation become in the United States that they no longer have the ability to feed themselves, and as we can read as reported by the Los Angeles Times News Service:
    "When you bite into a Twinkie, you are chewing on an international nexus of suppliers. Most of our processed foods — salad dressing, ice cream, meal-replacement drinks — are processed with foreign additives: essential ones, like B vitamins for fortifying flour and the preservative sorbic acid, as well as Malaysian or Indonesian palm oil products, European wheat gluten, Peruvian colorants, Chadian gums and Swiss niacin, made from Swiss water, Swiss air (nitrogen) and North Atlantic or Middle Eastern oil. It's a nice contrast to recall that Champagne comes only from Champagne, France.
    Like many other industries, food additives have been off-shored. No major domestic vitamin or sorbic acid manufacturers remain in the U.S. Our last vitamin C plant closed in 2005 — in fact, it closed as I was speaking to an employee about a tour — and most of our artificial colors and flavors come from abroad as well. Our chemical industry is rapidly dismantling its expensive domestic plants and either forming joint ventures with Chinese companies or simply buying chemicals from them. This leads to lower food and pharmaceutical prices, but perhaps at the cost of quality control."
    Congressman Paul has, likewise, warned Americans of the findings of <st1:place><st1:placeName>Princeton</st1:placeName><st1:placeType>University</st1:placeType></st1:place> economist Alan Blinder, and who has reported:
    "Word has it that their may be plans yet again to "outsource" highly skilled American jobs to other countries. Approximately 40-million American jobs could be at stake and yet U.S workers have not been told or consulted about it, until now. Just to put the number of 40-million into perspective, that is more than twice the amount of people that are employed in a manufacturing job.
    According to Alan Blinder, an economist from Princeton University, the "choice" jobs of skilled Americans could be lost and given to foreign countries within the next decade or two. Some jobs that are up for grabs include computer programming, graphic design, and bookkeeping, along with several others that were once considered "skilled American jobs".
    Apparently Blinder was sitting in at the business summit in Davos, Switzerland when he heard some executives from the U.S talking about outsourcing. They were very enthralled in the fact that they could outsource so many professional jobs to lower-wage countries."
    To such an American lawmaker seeking to ascend to the Presidency as Congressman Paul, Russian Political Scientists ‘warn’ that he will soon be ‘targeted for destruction’ by the War Leaders of America as he represents a ‘direct threat’ to their planned destruction of the United States from a Constitutional Republic into a Fascist Corporate State ruled by their vast multinational corporations utilizing the US Federal Government as their means of enforcement through terror of the American people.
    To the type of ‘destruction’ awaiting Congressman Paul, by his powerful adversaries, these reports state that ‘at the best’ he will be ‘pilloried into submission’ by the United States vast media propaganda organs who so successfully deceived the American people into World War, or, ‘at the worst’, could suffer the same fate as those who have in the past stood up against the powerful Cabals leading the United States ‘behind the scenes’, and had, likewise, vowed to destroy the United States Federal Reserve System, such as President John F. Kennedy, Presidential Candidate Robert Kennedy and Presidential Candidate George Wallace.
    To the final outcome of the events in the <st1:country-region><st1:place>United States</st1:place></st1:country-region> surrounding Congressman Paul it is not in our knowing.
    But, to more greatly focusing our attention on the events surrounding this unique American Politician, and Lawmaker, it should be done, as with Congressman Paul’s ‘first steps’ toward the great power struggle developing in the United States, and which many Russian Political Scientists believe could lead to civil war, a glimpse into the very heart and soul of the American people may be seen.
    And, from this glimpse, perhaps, could be seen a revival of that spirit which once made the <st1:country-region><st1:place>United States</st1:place></st1:country-region> the envy of the World, and as opposed to their present World standing of being feared and despised by all civilized Nations.

    Good article... I especiall like "Patriotism is more closely linked to dissent than it is to conformity". That's one important message that's been lost over the years.
