    So, copy and paste his writings and publish them in your newsletter at work under your name. Tell me that others won't see them as "blatant racism."

    I know I keep getting off topic, but you keep ignoring my question. Do you consider the Jesse Jackson statements racist? Did you think Robert Byrd was racist? I am only asking to see if you remain consistant. I assume you will find both JJ and RB just as racist as RP, but I would like to know for sure. So, do you or not?

    So to get back ON TOPIC....
    Amazon.com: End The Fed (9780446549172): Ron Paul: Books

    At first glance, abolishing the Federal Reserve and returning to the gold standard seems a quaintly eccentric idea, but Texas congressman Paul presents a plan to eliminate our country's central bank, and return to a private banking system, that's both serious and plausible.

    The questionable aspects involve Paul's predicted results: not only will ending the Fed eliminate inflation (the government cannot print more money than it has gold reserves), but also business booms and busts, wars, income inequality, trade imbalances and the growth of government. Further, and perhaps most important, it would "disempower the secretive cartel of powerful money managers who exercise disproportionate influence over the conduct of public policy."

    Paul tends to gloss over those periods in history, including the Panic of 1907, in which private banking and the gold standard were law: "the bad reputation of nineteenth century American banking... is largely the result of... propaganda agitating for the creation of the Fed." With respect to "secretive cartels," Paul takes up the interesting question of whether J.P. Morgan is in fact preferable to Ben Bernanke. An engaging response to big-government solutions for the financial crisis, this knowledgeable and opinionated look at U.S. economics, from a firebrand public servant, should provoke much thought. -- Publisher's Weekly

    "Rarely has a single book not only challenged, but decisively changed my mind. "
    --Arlo Guthrie

    "Everyone must read this book -- Congressmen and college students, Democrats and Republicans -- all Americans."
    --Vince Vaughn

    I am certainly not an avid Ron Paul supporter by any means, and in fact I disagree with him on numerous points. But, I have respect for him because he is one of the only politicians who seems to actually, truly believe what he says. I really respect that, it's refreshing. He seems to be unswayed by lobbies, outside influences etc, and he has a fully-formed belief system.

    So I read this book. I find his argument somewhat extreme at times and I do not agree with every point he makes (though I do agree with a lot). BUT in any case, the book made me think. A lot. And I think that is what's important about it. Reading it added a whole new perspective to looking at the federal govt (and specifically the federal reserve) that I had never really considered before. I still don't agree with everything he says, but I applaud him for being in Congress and having the courage to say it. I'm very glad I read End The Fed, if only to make me think long and hard about beliefs I had. Even if you are not a fan of his or disagree with him, it's really worth the time just to get you thinking in some new ways. --sodapopinski

    Even the writer of the article you cited said "Ron Paul may not be a racist..."
    I wouldn't have a problem with reviewing the material & reprinting it.

    Ban, for some reason I feel as though you are intentionally avoiding my question. Am I to assume that you do consider Jesse Jackson and Robert Byrd racist? If not please explain. I am only asking a question, not judging. But your disregard of the question makes me wonder if you have an agenda. I hope that isn't the case, so just set the record straight for me, please.

    In intelligence parlance I would call that the work of an "Agent Provocateur..."

    I think Quinn that Ban is NOT going to answer your question & continue to find fault so as to pull the thread off topic. I am betting he has never even looked @ RP's book let alone read it. The only thing he knows about RP is what the MSM feeds him.

    I think he pulled it off topic with his first post. Ban, you brought race into this thread and then say that you don't play that game. Doesn't make much sense to me. KR, sorry for following Ban's lead. Continue with the fed talk, I will duck out of this thread.

    I don't even know what MSM is. The only thing that I know is what Paul's words say in his newsletters.

    Trust me, I've read them many times over since I learned of them. I'm a firm believer in going to the horse's mouth, which is what the newsletters are. No need to have anything twisted for me; his words speak volumes about the kind of character that he (and his son, the Aqua Buddha) is/are.

    MSM = Main Stream Media

    Newsletters that he didn't write.

    Meanwhile you haven't read anything he has read BUT that in his over 30 years of service. Not the books, (which I posted one of above END THE FED) nor the countless You Tube videos on line of him stating his case, questioning Bernake or debating other politicians OR his articles. Not very well rounded just one sided.

    Your SOLE argument is like a Keith Olberman MSNBC program stuck on repeat. It is the only thing you have to deride him so you ride that horse hard.
