Call Ron Paul Correct About The EconomySubmitted by northstar on Fri, 09/26/2008 - 19:29
This is a great commentary, it's well worth reading on from the link.
A year ago, Congressman Ron Paul was just beginning to turn heads on the national electoral stage, owing to his presidential campaign's unexpected success at raising money. Congressman Paul was briefly applauded by media elites — until the full meaning of his message began to sink in. For Congressman Paul, as almost everybody knows by now, is an uncompromising foe of Big Government, and the greatest champion of the Constitution in Washington for at least a generation.
Thanks to the Internet-fueled Ron Paul Revolution, ordinary Americans began wondering — in distressingly large numbers, from the point of view of entrenched special interests — about where inflation comes from, how the Federal Reserve actually works, and whether government interference in every sector of the U.S. economy — the order of the day since Roosevelt's New Deal — is really a good idea. Ridiculed on the likes of Fox News for daring to advocate winding down the Federal Reserve System and returning to a precious-metal standard, Congressman Paul, with the steely unflappability that has become his trademark, persisted in his "radical" message, winning the hearts of millions of supporters.
Congress, time to grow up and listen to Ron Paul !
