“Economists” declare recession began a year ago

An article on Marketwatch.com today notes that the recession began a year ago.

The U.S. economy entered a recession in December 2007, a committee of economists at the private National Bureau of Economic Research said Monday.

The economy reached a peak of activity in December 2007 and has been declining since, according to the business cycle dating committee of the NBER.

The government, academics and the private sector generally defer to the NBER’s judgments about recessions.

The committee does not judge a recession as two consecutive quarterly declines in gross domestic product; rather, it examines quarterly data along with four key monthly economic indicators: employment, incomes, industrial output and sales.

Employment and incomes peaked in December, industrial output peaked in January, and sales peaked in June, the NBER committee said.

The committee’s definition of a recession is as follows: “A recession is a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in production, employment, real income, and other indicators.”

No kidding. Thats why I made this post a year ago warning about an impending recession (or depression). Seriously, how much are they paying these people?

The important point here is that with this admission there’s the underlying reality that pretty much every official government and media source has been either completely wrong or blatantly lying to us for the past year saying the “economy is great”. More analysis here.

Election Returns

There’s a good map here that breaks down the election returns and includes some third party numbers as well. Third party vote totals can be found here. Scrolling over each state shows more detailed third-party numbers.

Also, the Daily Paul has some numbers on the “Ron Paul” Congressional candidates across the nation.

Strangely enough, as usual, many states are being called with less than 50% returns and some even before ANY returns are showing.

Rand Paul: Is the Revolution Over or Just Beginning?

Here are a couple of posts from the Daily Paul that seem to shed some light on the somewhat ambiguous video message released by Ron Paul on the status of his campaign:

Rand Paul MD | March 8, 2008

Reports that Ron Paul has quit the Presidential Race remind me of Mark Twain’s famous quote, “Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” The Ron Paul Presidential campaign continues, albeit at a different pace.

What does that mean?

Ron Paul will continue to contest the remaining primaries. Ron Paul’s name will be on all the remaining state ballots. Ron Paul volunteers are encouraged to become precinct captains, delegates to state and national conventions, and to try pass Constitutional proposals to each state’s Republican platform.

For example, volunteers in each state should try to attach amendments such as the following: Republicans believe that war should only be fought after a proper Declaration of War by Congress. Another possible platform idea is that: Republican Congressmen are expected to vote against any federal budget, Republican or Democrat, that is not balanced.

Want to have some fun? Just imagine the fun when the debate begins on these ideas.

Is Ron Paul still campaigning for president? Yes. Ron Paul has tentative plans to campaign in Pennsylvania and Kentucky. Ron Paul will also likely appear in other states that have remaining primaries.

The press is reporting that Ron Paul has quit the race. This is not true. Ron Paul’s video simply acknowledges that the campaign will continue but will also transform into additional activities such as education and supporting other candidates. In Kentucky we just held precinct conventions and Ron Paul Republicans won hundreds of precinct captains. In Kyle Texas, Craig Young upset the establishment choice for Republican County Chairman.

The Ron Paul Revolution lives on! Victory comes in many forms. Help shape what the Ron Paul revolution becomes.

From the Horses Mouth: Ron Paul IS IN THE RACE TO THE END: 

I am posting this Mar. 6, 2008. My name is Bruce Bolock and I live in Lake Jackson, Texas. I have been a dedicated Ron Paul supporter and campaigner for more than 11 years. I am writing this on my wife’s computer. With three other dedicated supporter’s of Dr. Paul we met Sunday, March 2, 2008 for approximately 1 hour. Dr. Paul stated he is looking forward to campaigning in Pennsylvania (his birth state), North Carolina, and other primary states as the primary season winds down. He will enthusiatically go anywhere he is asked. He is in it as long as the funding continues to come in. Immediately before writing this I had a discussion with Carol Paul to confirm my understanding. Carol validated our understanding of the Sunday conversation. Earlier she had discussed this over the phone with Ron.
We have an excellent opportunity before us. Let’s not blow it!!!Those voters for McCain will now NOT turn out to vote as they see it unnecessary to go vote (based on the false, misleading information from the MSM). Or, they may switch over to vote against Hillary or Obama. The Ron Paul supporters can win the popular vote in these primaries and win the delegates. There is no other viable choice. It would be wise for the supporters of Ron Paul to continue to contribute to the campaign so that Ron can ride tihis all the way to the national convention. I am involved here and I am a delegate to the state senatorial convention. John McCain currently has ZERO committed delegates from Texas. That’s right—ZERO!!! The MSM has told you he has won the convention based on the delegates he won in Texas. Let me repeat, John McCain currently has ZERO delegates from Texas. We have the state senatorial convention and the Texas State convention to determine the delegates to go to the National Convention. They quite well may all be Ron Paul delegates.
Hence, we the supporters of Ron Paul need to cease and desist sending out these false rumors! They don’t help Ron, they demoralize his supporters. Please stop this nonsense, this only helps the establishment further control us. The establishment fears Ron Paul and a brokered convention. Don’t help them destroy this great opportunity,

Ron Paul ‘Winding Down’ Presidential Campaign; The rEVOLution Will Continue

Ron said things are winding down — not that he is dropping out — we still need to support him and get out and vote if we haven’t had the opportunity yet to do so.

Remember, we only lose if we give up on the ideals that brought us rEVOLutionaries together in the first place, so keep the faith and keep moving the cause of liberty forward!

This is just the beginning, not the end, and there are reasons to be optimistic…

Ron Paul Will Continue On

Ron Paul appeared with John Roberts on CNN this morning to talk about his presidential campaign, Castro and Cuba, and the future of the Ron Paul rEVOLution.

Ron Paul Discusses Trans-Texas Corridor on CNN’s Lou Dobbs 2.19.2008

Wait a minute — is this the same CNN network that criticized Ron Paul and accused him of spreading a conspiracy theory when he mentioned the NAFTA Superhighway and Trans-Texas Corridor during the presidential debates??? (The correct answer is, of course, YES!)
