Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: End the Fed (Hardcover)
For the record, I'm a fan of Ron Paul and I'm NOT a fan of "The FED."
*A short and easy read (it's a "one-day" book.)
*Contains countless statements of pure truth. For instance, discussing the expansion of the nation's money supply, Paul writes: "Noble intentions are always used to justify the inflation, but the real reasons are far more sinister. Those who get the control over the money are beneficiaries, not the people as a whole."
* Provides a priceless "inside the government" perspective of the FED's power to guide and corrupt foreign and domestic policy.
* Destroys the main arguments "in support of" the FED.
* The reader's understanding of basic monetary terms is often assumed. Example: "The prohibition of paper money was for convertible certificates." (Most books that are "economic" in nature are guilty of this. That said, "END THE FED" is more accessible than most books on this topic.)
* I hoped to see more emphasis on explaining the mechanics of the system (and the common terms) so the newbie could really "get it." Dr. Paul is 100% correct when he says: "Only an understanding of how the monetary system works can correct this problem and protect the victims..."
Overall, this book provides us another excellent weapon in the battle against "The FED." Buy it, read it, and share it with others.

Thanks. ...and yes, I still get the "Joe The Plumber" thing. But I'm not complaining. A lot of people (who don't spell very well) have gone to joepluMMer(dotcom) looking for "Joe The PluMBer." ...At which point, I get to hammer them, whether they're "left" or "right," with the truth about our corrupt system. Thanks mainstream media!

There's a DVD on youtube. I think it's called Zeitgeist and it explains the history of the federal reserve bank. I thought it was very informative. I don't think our government is too hot about this little charmer though. Enjoy!

The thing about Zeitgeist is that after it got through exposing the FED, it went into crazy-land. Even G. Edward Griffin (author of "The Creature From Jekyl Island") described Zeitgeist as "Communist propaganda."
