    • U.S. GDP Cools As Eurozone Inflation Heats Up – Ep. 245:
      Summary: The Europeans released their inflation numbers today.  Year over year, inflation in the Eurozone are increasing at an average of 1.9%, which is Mario Draghi’s objective.  This is a 4-year high in CPI increase.  How does Draghi justify more stimulus?

    • Damn the Deficits, Huge Tax Cuts Ahead!
      By: Peter Schiff, President and CEO Euro Pacific Capital Donald Trump has made good on one of his most audacious campaign promises by submitting what he describes as the biggest tax cut in U.S. History. For once, at least, this does not appear to be Trumpian braggadocio. It really may be the mother of all tax […] The post Damn the Deficits, Huge Tax Cuts Ahe […]
    • Trump Tax Cuts To Starve The Beast – Ep. 244
      Summary: President Trump actually delivered on his promise of the largest tax cut in American history, and he delivered it on time.  Trump may have presented a plan with built-in bargaining positions, or he might even intend to pass a tax bill that will “starve the beast”. The interesting thing is that the President is […] The post Trump Tax Cuts To Starve T […]
    • Spending, Not Taxes, Measures Government’s True Burden – Ep. 243
      Summary: Government spending creates the greatest drag on the U.S. economy.  Cutting taxes, even the “biggest tax cut ever” cannot stimulate the economy alone.  So if you’re fed up with paying taxes, if you think you are over-taxed,  and you are, it’s because the government is spending too much money. The only real way to […] The post Spending, Not Taxes, Me […]
    • Crowd Beginning To Exit Long Dollar Trade – Ep. 242
      Summary: Goldman Sachs is no longer recommending a long trade on the dollar.

Iowa Day 1

After a relatively smooth flight into Des Moines, I got my rental car and drove 2 hours east to the Clarion Highlander Hotel in Iowa City.  I didn’t get in until about 8 PM, and once I unpacked my stuff I gave my rp2012.org contact, Jun, a call to see if there was anything still going on at the campaign office in Coralville which was just 10 minutes away.  To my surprise, there were many people still at the office so he told me to come on over to get caught up.

Ron Paul's Johnson County campaign office

When I arrived, I finally got to meet some people face-to-face who I had only talked to on the phone or seen online.  The Johnson County coordinator was inside busily working, as well as a girl from the Revolution PAC and a number of other volunteers from various grassroots organizations.  Jun showed me a county map of Iowa that noted how many precinct vacancies each one had and which ones we were concentrating on in the eastern part of the state.  These were in no way concrete numbers, but we estimated there were about 70 precinct vacancies that needed captains (out of 1784 precincts total), so this wasn’t too shabby.  Thus, our next goal is to to fill those precincts with vacancies as well as find backups captains for many others with our stream of volunteers.  I took off a little after 11 and the office still had several people working diligently.

When I woke up next morning to grab some breakfast at my hotel, I couldn’t help but notice the TV commercials playing.  Within the span of my meal, I saw a Newt Gingrich commercial, followed by ones for Rick Perry and then Ron Paul.  The media bombardment was in full effect 48 hours prior to the first caucus!  After eating breakfast, I took a look outside and noticed a small dusting of snow had fallen over night.  Also, another Ron Paul patriot had pulled up next to my car at the hotel!  In addition to helping Jun do some volunteer organizing, I might also do some outreach at Ron Paul’s and Rand Paul’s Whiste-Stop Tour up in Cedar Rapids.  Exciting times await!

Ron Paul reifnorcements!
