It is no coincidence that the century of total war coincided with the century of central banking.
~ Ron Paul ~
The goods and services that you could buy for $1 in 1913 (the year the Federal Reserve was created) would cost you $24.50 today.
Another way to look at this is this: the government and its banking cartel have together stolen $.95 of every dollar that you have earned as they have pursued a relentless inflationary policy. The devaluing of the dollar represents a massive Inflation Tax on the American people.
As Senator, I would submit a bill to audit with an eye towards phasing out the Federal Reserve, and stabilizing both the U.S. Dollar and the economy. In fact, it is the failure of centralized banking that has given rise to libertarian cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. Individuals are choosing to trust other individuals rather than a centralized entity with the power to manipulate currency at will. Additionally, cryptocurrencies have a ceiling or maximum amount that can be made or distributed, thus causing them to keep their value, unlike the dollar.
