Financial Community Supports Ron PaulSubmitted by Michael Nystrom on Fri, 11/09/2007 - 15:02
Have you noticed? Ron Paul is picking up a LOT of support within the financial community. So far, these are the names of very prominent investment advisers who have announced their support for Ron Paul:
Not to mention the Chicago pit traders who were cheering for Ron Paul when he went head to head with Bernanke! Also, I was down at a local silver / gold shop in Boston the other day and I handed the guy behind the counter a bill stamped with Ron Paul 2008 on it. Of course he knew about Ron Paul because of his honest money stance, and was a big supporter.
Below are some brief excerpts and links to their full statements, where available. If you know of any others that I've missed - please post them in the comments section. I'd like to put together a very comprehensive list.
Axel Merk - 4/27/2007
Merk Hard Currency Fund
It is not our role to endorse a presidential candidate, especially not this early in the process. We don't agree with all of his views, but highly respect his no-nonsense approach to fiscal and monetary policy issues. We encourage everyone to familiarize themselves with the fiscal views of Congressman Ron Paul. He is living proof that it is possible to be a fiscally conservative politician with integrity.

Harry Schultz: HSL 662, 30 September 2007, page 6:
Ron Paul (for US presideing) is obviously the only election chance for upgrading the US govt. All others are just reruns of wrong principles & policies. If U want to help the cause of freedom with $'s go to: https://www.ronpaul2008.c....

Jim Rogers: October 29, 2007
"[Ron Paul] is the only one I've seen in American politics that seems to have a clue with what's going on in the world..."

Richard Russell: Russell's Remarks, November 6, 2007
The current issue of Time magazine surprised me. The issue had a two page report on libertarian, Dr. Ron Paul, the Texas Congressman, who is running for President. Ron believes in the US Constitution. Ron would like to shut down the Federal Reserve and go back to the gold standard. I gather Ron would end the war in Iraq -- further, he would close down all our 120 military bases that are spread across the face of the globe. Ron would legalize narcotics and thereby end our expensive and idiotic "war on drugs."
I guess, to make it short, Ron would pretty much get the government out of our hair, and return it to its original Constitutional form. I'm all for that. Furthermore, I'd mandate that every US Congressman and Senator be fully conversant with the US Constitution. I'd mandate that each and every one of them take an intensive course in Constitutional law. What they'd learn would probably shock them, but they'd get over it.
I'll vote for Ron Paul in the coming election. He's not going to win, but I just can't see myself voting for one of the other candidates. "Why are they running?" I ask. "Do they stand for anything different? Do they question where this nation is heading? Do they ask how this nation is going to continue living on borrowed money? Do they ask why the Federal Reserve was never subject to a Constitutional Amendment?"

Peter Schiff endorses Ron Paul: November 7, 2007
I recently had the pleasure of personally handing the Honorable Ron Paul (the only member of Congress truly worthy of that title) a $2,300 check (the legal maximum) as my contribution toward his presidential campaign. I have never given one dime to a politician (though Congressman Paul is more of a statesman than a politician) in my life, and you know what; it felt great. It was the best $2,300 I ever spent. The purpose of this email is to urge every single one of my clients, every subscriber to my newsletter, and every one in my database, to make a similar contribution.
