WSJ: Who Will Pick Up Ron Paul’s Role of Chief Fed Critic?

Nearly one year after Rep. Ron Paul of Texas said he would leave Congress at the end of his 12th term, his successor as the Federal Reserve‘s chief critic has yet to emerge on Capitol Hill.

The 76-year-old lawmaker and frequent GOP presidential candidate has spawned a legion of admirers in Congress, many of whom echo his obstreperous rhetoric and libertarian-leaning positions. But none have managed to meld Mr. Paul’s cheerfully contrarian temperament with his hard-line stance on abolishing the U.S. central bank.

[Ed.:The article mentions Reps. Patrick McHenry, Bernie Sanders,
Kevin Brady, Charles Calomiris, Walter Jones, Justin Amash, David Schweikert, and Sen. Rand Paul.]

RON PAUL

when he becomes President Paul

I woul say

Rand. But I think he has been bought by zionist banksters and neocon zionist loving trash. Lets purge the land of the scum now before they try to purge us.

I can see his face

He's that Democrat..big guy... gosh what's his name.. he's very animated personality.. He got out and was running again.. haven't seen his ad lately.. Alan Grayson http://www.prisonplanet.com/rep-alan-grayson-has-the-federal...

What an idiotic question from the Fed Daily. No one else on Capitol Hill has Ron Paul's deep knowledge, unshakeable principles, and burning passion. No one else understands, let alone advocates, the Misesian-Rothbardian position on central banking. No one else is a scholar of Austrian economics. No one else seeks to alter through competition, let alone eliminate, the Fed. Others can and should strive to emulate Ron, but no one can duplicate him. Oh, and note: In his educational work after leaving Congress, Ron will continue to be the leading Fed critic, and war and police-state critic, too.

Nobody

because the FED 100 year Charter ends in 2013, just in time for a crash and the emergence of a global currency, how great is that for coincidence (sarcasm).

I agree

I agree that the evil doers will do away with the Federal Reserve by 2013 in order to bring in a global currency. And while the charter expiring after 100 years might be a good reason I believe it's only half the story. What will really lead to the Feds demise is the FDIC and the bankruptcy of this country which is set to take place before the end of this year.

How do I know this? Many reasons but one of the most important ones is this one.

http://www.fdic.gov/deposit/deposits/insured/temporary.html

In the link you will see the FDIC offers UNLIMITED insurance until the end of this year when the UNLIMITED amount expires and goes back to the original 250,000 limit. The hundreds of trillions in derivatives are insured by FDIC along with everyone's money in the bank. Of course the FDIC doesn't have the money to pay these debts should there be a run on the banks before then and the banks close and go bankrupted because of it, which means the government will have to borrow this money from the FED to pay all this FDIC debt, leaving the taxpayer to pay the bill in the end. Of course this will make everyone's money almost worthless by the time they receive their FDIC insurance check.

And while the banks are closed and people are waiting for those FDIC insurance checks, they will have no access to cash other than what they stashed away under their mattresses, things like pay checks would be useless because no one would be able to cash them as the banks would be closed and broke, which will bring total chaos to this country and it's economy just like the evil doers planned all along.

I predict they will cause this run on the banks and the collapse of these same banks close to the end of the year, this way the big banks can take advantage of this UNLIMITED FDIC insurance before it expires, only to shut out anyone from taking advantage of this UNLIMITED coverage after the new year when a new currency will be offered in order to replace the one which is hyper inflating by this point due to the hundreds of trillions paid out by the FDIC.

So if you have ten thousand dollars in the bank today, and the bank closes and FDIC pays you later, it will be you who has to repay the debt the government owes for covering that ten thousand dollars. So you'll actually have to pay again for the money you saved and put into the bank today. Not only will you have to pay for your own money AGAIN but you'll also owe for all those hundreds of trillions in derivatives which the government allowed the FDIC to insure.

If that's not enough to scare the hell out of you then your obviously not looking at all the ramifications which will happen from all this. In my opinion the article like the one mentioned in the opening post is just setting up the public for what's coming in the future. And that future doesn't include the Federal Reserve or any of the major banks in the U.S.

How much news coverage did this UNLIMITED FDIC insurance get when it was passed, pretty much none, but then what do you expect from such an insane bill which has the power to collapse this country.

Good question WSJ

Easy answer. Ron Paul. What, just because he is retiring from congress does not mean in any way he is giving up the fight, in fact, he doesn't have any reason to hold any decorum that he might have been held to, by his own personal standards, when he was a congressman. He can now unleash his full fury at the federal reserve with the massive peaceful army of patriots that have his back. This is only the beginning WSJ.

The Fed doesn't need a

The Fed doesn't need a critic, it needs a single mandate and a Congress that gets the hell out of the way so it can do its job.

your name of evil warlord is consistent with the evil masters

you follow from bernanke to bush to obama to romney to mccain to john tate to t. olson.

critique is what tyranny lovers hate. so asking questions and accountability is out of the question. the motto is to have blind trust and don't worry about who handles your money.

This reminds me of a quote by

This reminds me of a quote by John Rogers:

"...one of the great secrets of human nature is that the one thing people want more than love, security, sex, chocolate or big-screen TV's is to feel hard done by."

"Why? Because being hard done by is the shit. Feeling hard done by is the sweetest of drugs. If you're being persecuted -- it must mean you're doing the right thing, right? You get the mellow buzz of the moral high ground, but without arrogantly claiming it as your own. You get an instant, supportive community in a big dark scary world of such scope it may well literally be beyond rational human processing. When you are hard done by, you get purpose in a life where otherwise, you'd have to find your own. And when you ride that high, then no amount of logic, no pointing out that in actuality you and your beliefs are at a high point of popularity and influence for the last hundred years -- is going to pry that sweet crack-pipe of moral indignation from your hands."

And here's another quote:

And here's another quote: "Slaves you were and slaves you will remain."

I was thinking about running

I was thinking about running for God-King. Wanna donate to my campaign? I'll reward you with many naked brown girls for your loyalty.

HA!

you aint gonna last long here pal.

And might you tell us just

And might you tell us just how can it being doing any sort of good "job" when the US dollar purchasing power is probably at its lowest point in history?
Also, please tell us how congress has gotten in the way. As far as I know, they havent had any power to tell the FED what to do. Auditing sure as hell isnt getting in the way either.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Good article

Unfortunately, a Ron Paul just doesn't come around very often.
