Ron Paul on Gold

Sometimes when I get an idea about something to post, I find that someone has said it infinitely better than I could. This is one of those times.  Read this from Ron Paul – which I copied from a DailyReckoning.com email unashamedly because they took it from Paul’s website.  🙂 There’s a link to it […]

We should’ve elected Ron Paul
