Ron Paul is always on message. Listening to his post Florida primary speech makes clear his position about the role of government: it’s a shifting screen that should stay closed when it comes to our personal liberties. It should intervene as little as possible, especially if we are to enjoy a robust, least restrictive market.
Granted the old man doesn’t have a chance, but the calls for getting rid of one of the biggest intrusive agencies, the Federal Reserve is a rational one. Let the market, the intersection of supply and demand for money, determine interest rates. Can we say that our financial system is sound when we push interest rates below their natural rates; when we bailout banks that failed to be responsible in their lending and investing?
He may not be the messenger we want to hear, but the message should be heard.
