DIOGENES, PUT DOWN YOUR LAMP

Here's a short piece on the devaluation of the U.S. dollar, written by none other Texas Congressman Ron Paul. This article is actually pretty superficial compared to Paul's usual attacks on the Washington Gravy Train, but the basic message is right-on.

Paul's an interesting character, possibly the closest thing we have in America to a libertarian in elected office, and certainly the most honest person on Capitol Hill. The man actually tells it like it is, and refuses to play the standard pork barrel game, walking away from the feeding trough consistently. In fact, his own Republican Party has worked rather hard to defeat him in Congressional elections. Like him or not, you can't help but respect his integrity. Take the time to read the Wikipedia post I attached. And if you're interested, follow some of the links.

Kudos to you for giving Ron Paul his props.

Ditto.

I voted for him back in '88. Neither Dukakis nor Bush Sr. really appealed to me back then.
