Regarding Ron Paul's gold standard remark on the CNN debateSubmitted by bionut on Thu, 01/31/2008 - 00:41
Many people may question Ron Paul's final comment about our currency being on the gold standard as it is too academic and people will not understand the relavence but I think it was brilliant and here is why. In tomorrow's Wall Street Journal a $264,000 ad will appear placed by a group called GATA. This ad which millions will read will explain how the world central banks have been manipulating the price of gold to avoid concerns regarding our fiat currencies.
When people read this ad they will remember Ron Paul's odd assertion regarding the gold standard and maybe they will connect the dots.
