Ron Paul will Chair the Monetary Policy Subcommittee

So we had political upheaval yesterday. Regardless of where you land on the political spectrum, if you’re reading a preparedness blog like this, chances are high you’ll smile at this headline:

Ron Paul will Chair the Monetary Policy Subcommittee

Ron Paul is a prepper‘s monetary-policy-dream-politician. This is a victory.

You know, Slate said it best:

Sometimes all you need is the headline. Ron Paul is slated to run this subcommittee, giving him some actual power and a megaphone on the issue dearest to his heart.

Speak loud, Ron Paul – speak loud!

    The first glimmer of hope for the economy. I sincerely hope it’s not too late though…

    Barnanke will need to answer his questions right? Will they sell tickets to these shows?

      It’ll make CSPAN a whole lot more interesting.

        I love, love, love CSPAN (although it is normally very boring). This would be ‘must-see t.v.’

        Maybe we can get Geraldo to televise the audits of the gold reserves!

        (That CAPTCHA thing gets me every time LOL).

    Too late… the government is like an alcoholic (money-holic) that won’t admit he’s got a problem, and won’t give up the bottle. All these bailouts and QE is just like an alcholic on a binge. In order to climb out of this mess, we need it to crash and burn, and enter a 12 step program and a good first step is putting Ron Paul where he can attack the Federal Bank (not Federal and not a Bank).

    Our children might have a prosperous future again, though our future is pretty much toast.

      Sadly, I must agree with Jack. This is the number one reason why I am currently prepping. I expect the crash to be sudden and catastrophic when it comes. But that’s just me.

    It’s nice too see this happening, but I think it’s far too late. The majority of our government officials are spending money like drunken sailors (no offense to any drunken sailors out there.). I can’t see the whole ingrained system in DC changing over night. Yes, all politicians got a slap up side the head, but I’m betting they will quickly sink back into believing all Americans will go back to sleep.

    Honestly, I have to take this news with a grain of salt because the powers that be must want Ron Paul into that position. They want an “orderly collapse of the dollar”. They know that Ron Paul being in that role will bring about exactly that. He has made nothing clearer since 2007 and before that he wants to audit the FED, End the FED, return to the gold standard, and have sound monetary policy. But the powers that be will only allow him to take this to the end of the dollar, and then they’ll look for a reason to remove him from that position and force us onto some other new fangled fiat currency.

    Has anyone else noticed the dramatic spike in Ron Paul interviews with Main Stream media sources? They love him on CNN, MSNBC, FOX, ABC etc now. 2 years ago during the election he was “fringe” and now he’s the fad. They are going to give him just enough credibility to open the books on the FED, which I believe will cause the collapse (weather orderly or not) of the dollar. Just watch. After that it’s a question of weather or not he can retain the power long enough to get us back on a sound monetary policy. But unless the people (a majority of them) realize how important this is, (doubtful) they will just stick us back on that new fiat currency.
