Was Ron Paul, tea party re-inventor, right all along? | Top of the Ticket | Los Angeles Times
No. he wasn't.
Well, can't ask for a more direct answer than that lol.
He's definitely right about one thing, Jill...the sham that we call the Federal Reserve needs to be fixed.
I think his solutions are straight out of a Dickens novel, (like most libertarians' solutions tend to be) but his complaints about what the masters aren't without merit.
Seriously, Jill, if you were designing a society, would what we have (and are attempting to keep going) now be your solution?
I rather doubt it.
Good ideas, and valid complaints are worth reconizing even if you can't get entirely on board with everything people say.
Trouble with R Paul is he came across as being too far out of step; the jump to where he wanted the country to go seemed too large - at the time. He is going to have trouble shedding the image of a wacko.
I like Ron Paul but he's probably too late for his cause.
The fundamnetal ailments we have are the core of our economic system. As much as these tax day protest are about high taxes and what is seen as an assault on the rich, you haven't seen an assault on the rich until you take a look at Pauls ideas. When Paul goes after the rich, he goes after the rich. The kind of people that Paul's ideas are aimed at don't show up for protest. They buy and sell public office. Politics the old fashioned way.
I've noticed that he is no longer portrayed in the media as a "kook," but I wish this welcome change would have come during his actual campaign.
Ron paul's words should be ringing in everyone's ears right now..and his cause was a great success..the globalist didnt erode your sovereignty and civil rights over night or implode the economy overnight ...it was done in increments and the fight against it will be won the same way..the Ron Paul revolution was just a first step in the process..tea parties another
So what is wrong with the Fed system and how would you fix it.
Jillian is a great person who just can't seem to see the truth on this issue, YET.
I have asked her to watch Freedom to Facism.
