WSJ: Ron Paul Says Someone Needs to Ask the Fed Question

Snip from the WSJ:

...through three presidential debates, the Texas congressman's pet issue, monetary policy, has been ignored. "They don't want to talk about it," Mr. Paul said in an interview Tuesday.

He added sarcastically: "It's not important enough. It's only half of every single transaction in the world."

You would think that even if Ron Paul the presidential candidate has failed, Ron Paul the Fed critic would be alive and well, front and center in the national debate. After all, any economist will tell you we are living in an unprecedented time of active central banking.

It's pretty sad for Americans

It's pretty sad for Americans that the Federal Reserve wasn't even mentioned in the Presidential Debates. I have a question for Newt Gingrich, Jim Demint, Mitch McConnell, Sarah Palin, Rick Perry, and all other Republicans who said they woke up to the issue of the FED and that Ron Paul was right all along. Why didn't your boy Romney even mention the Fed when debating the President? Why doesn't his five point plan even pay lip service to the Fed? Is it because he agrees with the same Keynesian policies as Barack Obama when it comes to monetary policy? And this is the guy who you say "knows how the economy works"? Could it be that he wants the Fed to finance his deficits too? That's your alarm clock. Time to wake up.

bumping for Dr. Paul--


it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Hey, they used a photo of me for the article!!!

Some nice person sent this to me today. I'd have never known, as that photo of me with Occupy Tampa is now a stock photo with the AP. So honored to be used to illustrate an article about Ron, even though I do look like I'm about to receive the stigmata :0)

That's awesome! The photo

That's awesome! The photo looks great, nice banner, too. It looks like you are genuinely concerned about real issues!

not suprising

I'd bet the AP photographer took a dozen shots of you then picked the one that made you (and thus the average Ron Paul supporter) look worst. Thanks for going out and taking a stand, only way things are going to change.

Shame on you Mr. Paul.. for asking questions. How sarcastic

can you get? I mean, good grief, you should be grateful that we have the news people here among us... letting us know at the appropriate time when it's ok to ask those kinds of questions. These are the things that you discuss in quiet rooms.

Stated oh so succinctly...

The comment by Tricia following the article is perfect:

This issue will not take center stage until it poses a comprehensible and immediate threat to the well-being of the individual citizen. Of course, by that time the opportunity for constructive reform will have long past.

To remain in office, our elected officials must master the art of governing "public perception." They needn't have any particular interest, aptitude or expertise in crafting or executing sound, responsible public policy. Therein lies the greatest vulnerability of our democratic republic and its only remedy is an informed and engaged electorate.

They would be cutting their own throats

wouldn't they?
