*** Our old friend Ron Paul is still trying to roll his rock up the hill.
A report from Paul Joseph Watson:
"Presidential candidate Ron Paul says the U.S. is in 'great danger' of a

warning that a major collapse of the American economy is on the horizon
and could be precipitated by the bombing of Iran and the closure of the
