"Not a Single Person Booed" by Allan Stevo. An Account of the GOP Convention, Clark County, Nevada.Submitted by JohnPhillipSousa on Wed, 03/21/2012 - 20:26
I've read a lot about Dr. Paul over the years. I've followed these elections like an adopted child looking for her biological parents. But this take-away by Stevo of the Clark County Nevada GOP Convention gave me a lot of room for pause, to take some time to appreciate what has happened and is happening in our struggle thus far, our fight to see Dr. Paul's dreams of a Restored America come true.
The Fed is more significant than we realize. The Fed must be understood. The Fed is not to be trusted. In fact, the Fed, it’s control over the money supply and interest rates, in a system of fractional reserve banking are to blame for the booms and busts of the business cycle. Those sentences logically follow one another as a person investigates the central bank. Three of those four, once considered strange to speak about in polite company have become acceptable.
They’ve perhaps even become "common sense," so common sense that you’d now appear like an idiot to the masses to publicly stand against an audit of the Fed. America is changing. I was lucky enough to be there to see one example of that change occurring, such an important example. We’ve come a long way from freshman congressman Ron Paul being called before a Senate committee for daring to be the lone vote against the funding of the IMF.
The groupthink of statism as "common sense" and its seemingly unconquerable march forward has shifted. Two hundred years from now there will be many bodies of writing looking at when that shift occurred and mine might be among the primary sources referenced – arguing that that shift occurred in Las Vegas at the Orleans on March 10, 2012.
