IS RON PAUL RIGHT? I LIKE WHAT HE HAS TO SAY.
I'll allow Ron Paul to speak for himself. I like what he has to say about the Federal Reserve. With the vote looming about Ben Bernanke, what Paul has to say is really relevant. Dr. Paul is a medical doctor who has become an expert in economics. His political views are libertarian.
There is a lot of what he has to say that I don't agree with to any extent. As for his economic views, I agree with him a lot. Anyone who takes on Paul Krugman is a friend of mine. Krugman is an extremely liberal, Keynesian, whose theories have been thoroughly disproved. Therefore, he is a Nobel laurate, which speaks highly of the Nobel board.
Dr. Paul has taken on the Fed. I agree, as do a large number of congressmen, that the Fed should do its business in the open. The secrecy of government is an intolerable perversion of the constitution. The Fed should operate in the light of day and its deliberations should be public.
When did it become a revelation that the government should be open to the governed?
