    Hi, I'm new here. I'm a Ron Paul supporter and ardent critic of the Private Federal Reserve.

    I sincerely believe that all of the problems with society and government start with the existence of the FED. It enables runaway spending and debt and steals the money from the people.

    I have $5 I'm betting you couldn't articulate what the Fed even does without parroting Paul. I get the feeling most of your type are looking for a new conspiracy theory to blame for "all that's wrong".

    I might could be wrong -- but I'm willing to risk my $5.

    Welcome. :clap2:

    We need more people at USMB who truly understand the problems facing our country.

    (BTW, there are actually people who do not know what the Fed does, but don't tell anybody. :eusa_shhh:)

    Wow, thanks for the warm welcome, Madeline. You may as well burn you five spot. It's a bet you would lose, but chances are you wouldn't pay up anyway.

    What does the FED and Bush have to do with each other? I may have my work cut out for me educating the statists here.

    Thanks for the genuine welcome i received here. I'm sure at least one person meant it. :)

    The FED has always been an enemy. We don't need the FED. The bankers need the FED.

    Yep.

    Ron Paul was also pushed into a box by conservatives during that time. There were some conservative message board where you could get banned for starting a Ron Paul thread.

    Why has the Fed been the enemy?

    What would you replace it with?

    Im thinking it isnt hard to say , you cannot run a coherent currency policy on money you have to borrow from a private bank that sets the interest rate to benefit the bank.
