Ron Paul and the Fed

Armstrong Willams | 3/29/2012, 1:36 p.m.
Ron Paul wants to abolish the Federal Reserve. He may be right, as it's hard...
At Thanksgiving, embracing the winds of change and increasing our faith

Steve Forbes, an investing and business genius, says that it is almost inevitable that the United States return to the gold standard, which would completely take away the power of the Fed to manipulate the market and thus manipulate our lives. Another irony is that it is our friends on the left who fear this change and wish to preserve the status quo, afraid of the consequences of restoring convertibility to gold simply because we haven't done it before.

By taking away the power of the Fed and giving it to the free market, we will all benefit. The market knows best how to allocate resources.

Paul is 76, and if Sen. John McCain was too old to be president, so is he, but he has already accomplished a tremendous legacy of energizing young people about liberty and awakening us all to the quiet power of unelected men and women who tinker with our lives. He will be a symbol for years to come.
