Ron Paul on Paul Ryan
Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) doesn’t seem to think too much of Paul Ryan’s budget plans, as expressed to Neil Cavuto the other day, since the goal of “maybe balancing the budget in 30 years” doesn’t fundamentally address the ongoing trouble the nation has in squaring its books (if that’s even possible anymore).
On a related note, Mineweb reports that Paul (Ron, not Ryan) has launched a new campaign to legalize alternate domestic currencies, citing Ludwig von Mises who noted, “sound money is an instrument that protects our civil liberties against despotic government. Our current monetary system is indeed despotic, and the surest way to correct things simply is to legalize competing currencies“.
It’s too bad he’s not running for another term in the House this fall - he will be missed.
