Ron Paul Lecture - "The Great Enabler: The Rise of the Federal Reserve and the Growth of Government"

Published on Sep 4, 2012 by CongressmanRonPaul

Congressman Ron Paul delivered this Congressional lecture on "The Great Enabler: The Rise of the Federal Reserve and the Growth of Government." The introduction was given by Senator Rand Paul. As a continuing educational tool this lecture was filmed and is provided to the public.

Congressman Paul explains in this lecture the Federal Reserve's role as the enabler of big government. Through purchases of government debt, the Fed allows the government to spend beyond its means and contributes to the growth of the welfare-warfare state. If leviathan government is to be countered, understanding monetary policy and the fundamental role it plays in the relentless growth of government is a necessary first step.

Good questions answered in these videos! Thank you.

Positive support for Ron Paul ideas! Support from the Restoration and Liberty Movement on http://cristianpaduraru.com

I am woundering

if Ron Paul would do a TED talk on Fractional Banking? This would be a a monumental talk for TED under the Courageous section.

His name is Edward Snowden

Ironic that just today the ECB agreed to unlimited bond buying.

What fools the European Central Bank are and what fools Europeans are for allowing it.

Agree.

Congressman Paul: A True Statesman

Here is another great speech by Congressman McFadden in 1932:

"Chairman, we have in this Country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal reserve banks."

"This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of the United States; has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government."

"It has done this through the defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Fed and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it."

"Some people think that the Federal reserve banks are United States Government institutions. They are not Government institutions. They are private credit monopolies which prey upon the people of the
United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers; foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers; and rich and predatory money lender.

In that dark crew of financial pirates there are those who would cut a man's throat to get a dollar out of his pocket; there are those who send money into States to buy votes to control our legislatures; there are those who maintain International propaganda for the purpose of deceiving us into granting of new concessions which will permit them to cover up their past misdeeds and set again in motion their gigantic train of crime.

"These twelve private credit monopolies were deceitfully and disloyally foisted upon this Country by the bankers who came here from Europe and repaid us our hospitality by undermining our American institutions."

the latter half is a Q&A session, and especially important is

what the Doc says around 49min mark while answering the '1981 Gold Commission and the gold 'reserves' listed on the Fed. Reserve's balance sheet'-question:

Audit the FED, also = Audit the Gold!!!!!!!!!

Here's the 'other' reason why he wants the Fed audited: since gold holding is listed under the Fed. Reserve's balance sheet, the wording can be used to audit 'their' Gold reserves!!!!

OUR Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul???

Genius!!!

Dr. Paul in his top form, and at his best:

talking about the origins and the nature of Federal Reserve system, for a whole HOUR, as always, without the aid of a teleprompter!

I am however, always curious as to what type of keywords and notes he does write on a single piece of paper that he usually has at the podium to help him along.

or, it could literally have nothing written. I know plenty of people who do public speaking via 'envisioning': sometimes a few keywords as a cue, or nothing at all; even just a blank piece of paper to 'anchor' them to the speech they already have in their heads.

my guess is, the Doc does the 'envisioning' technique of some sort, too.

god, and his energy and stamina...all at 77, no less!!!!

simply never ceases to amaze!

a speech not to be missed, y'all!

for whatever reason

the auto-headline feature is blocking the full title as written, thus "...the Growth of Big Govt" was omitted. FYI.

headline updated

this is Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul's final presentation in his House Financial Services SubCommittee's lecture series on the Federal Reserve system.

Rightfully so, the final speaker is Dr. Paul himself.

Frankly, I'd have been happy EVEN IF Dr. Paul held an hour long PowerPoint presentation in lieu of campaign speeches, wherever he went, this time around.

Thank you Dr. Paul, for igniting eternal flameS in millions of minds and hearts.
