Based on his results in the last presidential primary election and the support he gets in
Congress, not that many people are paying attention to Ron Paul's suggestions for helping this
country get back on its feet. Perhaps they should and perhaps the tide is beginning to turn.
Paul calls for the abolishment of the Federal Reserve. This is probably not going to happen,
but Paul has people thinking that maybe the body ought to be changed so it is less corrupt and
more constitutional. Granted, some of Paul changes may be off the track just a bit, but his
ideas promise a better system than we have now. And to Paulís credit, he doesn't just pull his
ideas out of thin air. He has history on his side in many of his arguments.
His solution to our problems contains three essential points: live within our means, stick
to the Constitution and make the legal tender of the county sound money. We citizens are asked
(no, demanded) to live by these standards or suffer great consequences such as millions
of people are doing now, but our present policy makers are free from these basic requirements
for a sound country.
If people think Paul is totally out of line, they should remember that it was Paul who
warned both the Bush and Obama administrations that bailing out failing corporations would
only add to the problem.
If the reader will compare Paul's ideas with what we have now, the reader will be convinced
that Paul is on the right track by the end of the first CD, but the reader should listen on as
Paul presents more and more convincing arguments (admittedly some a little far-fetched) for
doing government his way. If nothing else, maybe Paulís arguments will lead to a little more
transparency in our government.
