interest in the book soon to be released by Ron Paul named End
the Fed is unprecedented in monetary history, and reveals
the extraordinary times we live in where there is a chance to change
the monetary policy in the United States in a way that could benefit
all of us.
unique at this time is the near collapse of the banking system generated
the desire and interest from people in how that could happen; that
created the opportunity from those like Ron Paul who had spent their
lives studying and fighting against what the Federal Reserve practices
extraordinary about this is the Fed has enjoyed — for the most
part — operating behind the scenes and in obscurity with almost
no one having the name in their minds or talking about it. So when
people talked about the folly and danger represented by the Federal
Reserve, it fell on deaf ears, as it simply didn’t compute
as to what it was and why we as American citizens should care.
That has probably
changed forever now, as the practices of the Fed are starting to
be grasped and understood by a growing number of people, and they
can’t simply just slither back under their rock, even though
they’re trying to do that at this moment by fighting off audits
and other means of finding out what’s under their operational
hood. They prefer to go back to the days where everyone forgets
about who they are and what they do, so they can continue to go
about their usual business.
Paul is a Republican member of Congress from Texas.
