Far More Credibility

This article summarizes how Ron Paul has been warning about failing monetary policy and a housing bubble for years. The article suggests that since Ron Paul was the only Congressperson with correct foresight on these issues that we now listen to him.

We Should Listen to Ron Paul
In movies like Independence Day, there's that one scientist who figures it out before everyone else. Everybody else gets it wrong, but he's the one guy that gets it right. Of course after events show that he was right, then everybody thinks, "gee, this guy saw the whole alien attack thing coming, maybe we should listen to him." They do and he saves the world from certain doom. Real life, however, doesn't work that way.

In 2002, Ron Paul was the only Congressman who saw the housing bubble and recession coming. He has for years talked about how our monetary policy was sowing the seeds for what has happened to our economy. Remember during the campaign how McCain proudly said that he was talking about the housing bubble back in 2006? Hardly something to brag about since the bubble was about to burst by then. ...

... At the very least his views should be heard more often in the media, and those in charge of our economy now should answer his questions. But for now what goes on inside the Federal Reserve is not subject to oversight by Congress, and often not even known. That's why we should support Ron Paul's bill HR 1207 The Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009, which would do nothing more than allow the government to audit the Federal Reserve. The purpose in auditing the Fed would be to bring to light some of the despicable deeds that they do, with the hopes that the people of this country would be so outraged that they would demand the Fed be abolished.
