Four years ago, the Federal Reserve was completely unheard of in the news. Now that’s absolutely not the case. Thanks to the awakening of the masses of how much this private institution is effecting our nation daily, it’s becoming the heart of the talks of our nation’s problems, as it rightfully should be. Simply put, without the Federal Reserve, your dollar would buy more, we wouldn’t be extending ourselves into pointless nation-building wars, and we wouldn’t be faced with bubbles such as the housing bubble that has put so many in forclosure.
As Dr. Ron Paul much more elegantly puts it:
It is and should be a mainstream cause to end the power and secrecy of the Fed. It’s my own view that ending the Fed would address the most vexing problems of politics of our time. It would bring and end to dollar depreciation. It would take away from the government the means to fund its endless wars. It would curb the government’s attacks on the civil liberties of Americans, stop its vast debt accumulation that will be paid by future generations, and arrest its massive expansions of the welfare state that has turned us into a nation of dependents….Essentially you take away from the government the capacity to expand without limit. It is the first step to restoring constitutional government. Without the Fed, the federal government would have to live within its means. It would still be too big and too intrusive, just like all state governments are today, but the outrageous empire at home and abroad would have to come to and end.
Ron Paul, End The Fed
