    Gillespie is right. All the whining about the dollar, the gold standard yada yada yada is meaningless unless the sheeple actually understand what their elected officials are supposed to be doing, and insist they do it. Our bad economy, horrible leadership etc are merely symptoms of the disease, not the disease itself. The real cause is the general public. We have met the enemy, and they are us. Until we can free our minds from apathy and hero worship, things will continue as they are.

    Best Freedom Watch yet. The Gillespie-Schiff gold debate is why. Interestingly enough, during the last gold run in the '70's when gold was at it's top, the US could have backed the entire monetary base with gold at $800 / oz. This time the number is closer to $8000. Schiff owns, as usual.

    I feel like the audience that would be watching these videos and reading these comments is also capable of making an awesome gold debate thread, not unlike the debate seen in part 2. Everybody link to this page on twitter and facebook and let's talk monetary philosophy.

    Great episode, I love that this was dedicated totally to the Federal Reserve. Let's keep talking and informing. GET THIS SHOW ON FOX!

    Gillespie never debated the merits, or lack thereof, of a gold standard. This was the point that Schiff missed. Gillespie was saying that a gold standard is a means to an end. That end being governmental fiscal discipline, which we will never see until the electorate is educated enough to demand it. So…

    economic meldown = symptom
    Costly and destructive overseas conflicts = symptom
    Fed Reserve runs amok = symptom
    Congress / White House filled with amoral opportunists, thugs and arrogant autocrats = symptom
    Education system engenders statist dependence and lack of critical thinking skills = symptom
    Citizens of USA = Cause.

    We are not victims of a bad government. How can we be? It's a system of our own making! We've shown we are more than willing to give up our children, our income, our property and our liberties to the mafia in DC. The blue print for Liberty is sitting in a museum in Washington and we ignore it.

    "We are not victims of a bad government. How can we be? It's a system of our own making! "

    Ummm, I didn't make any systems, i know that much. I doubt you did either. The power structure we suffer under existed before I came along, so I still consider myself a victim, not the cause. How can I be the cause of something I don't like, don't support, and actively try to undermine on a constant basis (at least intellectually).

    I suppose you will make some reference to Democracy, but you should have learned by now that big business, big media, and big government selfishly work together to control the show.
