@RonPaul: If we #auditthefed what questions will we ask?
The one thing I would like to know is this.
What is the profit on lending money out of thin air? Could that rate of interest be considered usury under the laws of 1776, 1864, 1929, or 2008?
Certainly they can tell you, and if they cant, that is exactly what we should report to the world. A timeline of every transaction the Federal Reserve has made for the past 100 years. The only way you are going to see a pattern and determine if anything underhanded has gone on in the past. This will also tell us moving forward if there is any correlation to any other global socioeconomic activity.
This would be the trial of the century and could change the world. More than during the trust busting years, more than during the latest wikileaks revelation.
So Dr. Paul, can you tell me whether or not you think industrial hemp could be a good standard for the money supply? Or does it need to be gold and silver? Wouldn't a source of food, energy, and plastics be a good monetary standard?
All the best,
