Ryan will visit SMT Inc., a sheet metal fabrication company at 7300 ACC Boulevard, at 1 p.m. Doors open at 11 a.m. and tickets to the event are free.

Following what the Romney campaign is calling a “victory rally,” Ryan will attend a fundraiser at the home of John Kane, the chairman and chief executive officer of Kane Realty, a real estate and development firm that lists North Hills as its signature property.

    "Noone needs to increase the money supply under a gold standard."

    Of course you still need to increase the money supply as the GDP increases otherwise it becomes harder to get and cramps economic growth.

    " And if it did, thats what new mining would do for you."

    ROTFLOL, so the wealth of a country would depend on how much of a shiny but relatively useless metal? And the value of a Nation entire currency would depend on this or that countries next big gold find?

    "REAL inflation has been 8% since Obama has in office but started under Bush with the bailouts since the FedReserve simply created that fiat money out of nowhere."

    8% sounds about right, about 2% a year.....ie pretty low. The The Fed is supposed to create money, thats its job.

    " The Fed has created many bubbles and created both this depression and the Great one in the 30's also."

    So the country never had bubbles and recessions before the Fed was created? Beeeep! Wrong.

    "Liberals are scared to death of Paul Ryan. He's twenty times more brilliant then Joe Biden"

    Well thats not saying a lot :) And educationally they are much of a wash.

    "and he's going to nail him in the debates."

    I doubt it

    " You left wingers are scared to death."

    "This comment made me giggle!! Do you even want to talk about what Obama's secret service?!?"

    Obamas secret service? its THE Secret Service. The President could not possibly known about what was going on before he got into a country unless they told him about it....and do you think that was likely?

    Romney-Ryan all the way to the White House!!"

    I doubt Obama will invite them in. The Secret Service are well paid to keep such riff raff out. Crabbit Cratur

    "Tehn stop voting for candidates that support the Federal Reserve."

    Why? The Fed does a good job. We have had little appreciable inflation for decades.

    "This is where the unlimited printing press is that keeps the inflation tax creeping higher and higher."

    What inflation? Its probably as low as it ever has been in modern times

    "If you vote for Romney or Obama you are not concerned about your grandchildrens future."

    Rubbish, you not understanding basic economics doe not translate into Armageddon.

    " You are voting to raise taxes on you and them through an inflation tax."

    Please explain how having no fed would do away with inflation?
    Who is going to increase the money supply as the economy grows if not the Fed?

    "So you're arguing with a straight face that the CRA and Fed manipulation of rates is a "free market"?"

    Where do think I argued that?

    "" You're right, I didn't know that. I thought free market meant something entirely different, specifically something that didn't involve governmental manipulation."

    I made no comments about free markets....
