Gold is our honest money as defined in the U.S. Constitution, but, will gold be currency again?
Dr. Ron Paul began his political career in 1976 after Nixon broke the USDs peg to gold in 1971. He is a fully committed constitutionalist and believes strongly in honest money as defined in the US constitution and in 1982, under President Ronald Reagan, he created and served on the US Gold Commission. The resulting report “The Case for Gold”, evaluated the role of gold in the monetary system.
An advocate of Austrian economics and as a congressman, he focused his efforts on fair taxation, and the financial sector, and was the ranking or most senior member of the monetary policy subcommittee which, ironically, oversees the Federal Reserve. In response to the 2008 financial crises, he introduced the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, better known as Audit the Fed. And while it passed the house, it did not make it through the senate. But through his tireless efforts, it has been reintroduced again this year!
He is known to defend the gold standard and oppose government regulations that interfere with the free market and continues to lead the way to honest money by supporting state efforts to return gold and silver to legal tender status as the taxation on honest money gold and silver is eliminated.
This tireless man clearly believes in education. His Youtube channel, Ron Paul Liberty Report covers unfolding global events today, as does his weekly column in The Foundation for Rational Economics and Education, which focuses on civil liberties. His Institute For Peace and Prosperity, an offshoot of the foundation, is all about education as his Campaign for Liberty focuses on reclaiming the republic through restoring the constitution.
I could go on and on, but time is short with this very busy man.
So, without further ado, I am honored and humbled to present Dr. Ron Paul.
