"All Truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident."
- Arthur Schopenhauer
Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.

"The Black Swan" author Nassim Taleb Cheers Ron Paul's Economic Platform on CNBC
This is exactly what we need. We need more credible, distinguished, and reputable individuals to step-up on the mainstream and make a stand on real change.
Simply introducing an idea into this universe is a beautiful thing. Sharing this idea with other humans is even more profound. Spread the word on the solution to our nation's economic issues.
Nassim Taleb - From Wiki: “He is a bestselling author, and has been a professor at several universities, currently at Polytechnic Institute of New York University and Oxford University. He has also been a practitioner of mathematical finance, a hedge fund manager, a Wall Street trader, and is currently a scientific adviser at Universa Investments and the International Monetary Fund.”

Whether he has 1% or 99%, I’m supporting him because we have no other solution... but to come out of my library and support him... I have no other solution as my duty, as a citizen, as a person who lives here, and as a taxpayer who doesn’t want to be hoodwinked, in the long run by bureaucrats."
