Everything Ron Paul is saying would happen if there wasn't a new financial system already ready behind the scenes. It is completely plausible that he doesn't have any knowledge of it, or he is just keeping up the illusion until the very end. I believe the United States will default and this will largely be because of Obama. I think it will come down to the last minute and instead of accepting a Republican deal, Obama will just allow the government to default. As a result, the dollar will fall sharply and the Illuminati will be officially finished because they no longer will have the currency to keep the cherade up. This will immediately be followed by a new financial system and disclosures on a large variety of topics that were once considered "conspiracy". The world is on the verge of a New Age. Peace on Earth!
