Ron Paul drives Republican policy, Republicans drive America to a crashSubmitted by jkm1864 on Fri, 09/23/2011 - 09:12
When Republican House Speaker John Boehner (Ohio) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (Va.) threaten the Fed if it tries to help the economy with monetary policy, their low-concept imitation of Ron Paul is economically ignorant and historically unprecedented. When Republican candidate Rick Perry threatens the Fed with charges of treason and comes close to threatening violence if the Fed chairman visits Texas, his polyester impersonation of Paul makes him intellectually and morally unfit for the presidency.
When the books are written, one story of the 2012 campaign will be the full magnitude of influence that Ron Paul has achieved over Republican economic policy. For better or worse, it is an enormous achievement for Paul that his lifetime body of work is now a consensus policy of the Republican Party.
The larger story, when the books are written, will be how Republican leaders in Congress appear hell-bent on returning the nation to the economic crash that began under the last Republican president, as so many recessions and depressions have begun under Republican leadership.
Here is how Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader Cantor and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) are imitating 30 years of Ron Paul policies and destroying the American economy:
Never before in American history have leaders of any party attacked the Federal Reserve Board for trying to use monetary policy to strengthen the economy during a recession or depression. It has never happened before, not once in American history.
OK Guys let them have it!!!!
