Even Ron Paul Can’t Save America From “Fiscal Disaster,” Former Fed Economist Says
By Aaron Task – 4 hours ago
Dr. David Barker, a former Fed economist and self-described libertarian, says there's more than just anti-Romney feelings to explain GOP voter dissatisfaction.
"The reason people are having trouble latching on to any candidate is voters want things that are impossible," Barker says. "They want continuing generous government programs and they don't want taxes to pay for them; and no candidate can deliver that. So voters bounce from one candidate to another looking for the magic bullet and there's no such thing."
Barker, a resident of Iowa, voted in the caucus for Ron Paul -- the one candidate many believe actually tells it like it is vs. telling the voters what they want to hear.
