Bitcoins are as real as US Dollars. Whether they are any more or less volatile than any given fiat currency is for the buyer to judge. I am rather surprised to read Gary North stating that "Dollars are money." If North chooses to define US Dollars as fiat money maybe the statement is not quite wrong. Neither can I swallow such a sentence without the needful modifier of fiat.

Caveat emptor folks. That will always be good advice.

Immigrating to the US is neither easy nor cheap. I know of one Canadian that spend $10,000 to complete her immigration here. Other countries may have more difficult and more expensive systems to those established by US lawmakers. Difficulty doesn't necessarily mean better. I would hope that like many things that are made in America that it might be made better, faster and cheaper than items made overseas but perhaps the overhead of Obamacare precludes that from happening.

I look forward to hearing either via print or video when someone with the power to get answers asks this question of someone with the ability to provide a (hopefully honest) answer.

Mr. Long seems like a nice and friendly chap but I found his video a bit of a drag after 9 minutes. After 12 minutes and 4 seconds (the half way mark) I pressed the stop button.

Here in Arizona there were four choices for President on the ballot (plus 6 write-in choices). Three advocates of big government to a greater or greater degree. One advocate of a 43% reduction in spending. Did Americans get a real choice? I rather believe that they did. Based on your closing sentences I would begin to worry. I have this feeling that the future is so bright I should start wearing shades.

I was happy to have watched this. I liked audience participation. I thought Larry King did a fine job of moderating. I favor Gary Johnson but having other alternatives was interesting.

I will be interested to see how much commentary there is on the Stewart/O'Reilly "debate".
