Ron Paul on the Economy

Herewith, the Ron Paul highlights from yesterday's GOP presidential debate in Dearborn, Michigan on CNBC — focused, as one might expect, on economic issues.  For anyone who discounts him as a one-note Johnny against the Iraq war, he states eloquently the Founding Fathers' case that economic freedom is imperiled when government undertakes a state of perpetual war.  Note also how he manages to strike a note of economic populism — the middle class suffering from monetary inflation, while the Wall Streeters at the top of the food chain benefit.  (This came after Generalissimo Giuliani stated the case for what HE defines as the "free market.")
