Congressman Ron Paul disavows letters which he says he did not write (syndicated columnist Gary Weiss, The Street – Freeman website, Dec. 28, “Ron Paul captures the crackpot vote").
Contrast that Christmas-sized portion of hate doled to Paul to your handling of Barack Obama.
In 2008, there was no criticism of then-Sen. Obama’s associations with anti-Semites and felons, to include Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, and Father Pfleger. In contrast, Weiss convicts Paul without trial.
Paul is the only candidate to question both parties’ refusal to discuss the bipartisan commitment to the Federal Reserve Bank and its creation of income inequality by diverting wealth from the public to Wall Street.
As Nicola Matthews and James Felkerson of the Jerome Levy Institute reveal, in the past few years the Fed has purchased $29 trillion in assets. The assets were financed with dollars the Fed printed from thin air.
We have not felt the effects because central banks prop up the dollar.
To the extent that the toxic assets are less than the $29 trillion, there is a loss to the public, likely in the trillions.
The entire American GDP is about $14 trillion.
But that’s the least of it.
The potential instability exceeds that of the 1930s.
So far, only Paul has raised these issues.
Maybe I can see Weiss’ point:
Why discuss the Fed when there are plentiful opportunities in the op-ed market to call Paul, R-Texas, and his supporters names, but few to discuss substantive issues?
