Time Magazine asks Ron Paul about the Fed, marijuana, media bias

In Federal Reserve, politics on September 23, 2009 at 4:01 am

Recently, on Time Magazine’s “10 Questions,” Rep. Ron Paul was asked ten questions submitted by readers. A total of 220 questions were submitted.

In the interview, Paul talks about his new book, End the Fed. Paul’s “Audit the Fed” bill, HR 1207, has received the support of two-thirds of the House of Representatives.

Addressing the current financial crisis, Paul tells the Time reporter:

“The Federal Reserve is the culprit and if we can get an audit we could reveal exactly what they do. Because they deal in trillions of dollars of extending loans to special interests, special banks, special corporations, they make deals with other central banks and other governments of the world. So they’re a government to themselves and they print their own money.”

Watch out (again) for Ron Paul in 2012.
