For those still putting energy into gleaming facts about what’s happening in the world from the MSM you’ve probably heard them try and tell you that Ron Paul’s presidential campaign has come and gone and is essentially just winding down. But is it really?
Putting aside the stunningly obvious but astonishing non-reporting of the seemingly epidemic election fraud directed against Dr Paul’s campaign (to such an extent that even Dr Paul alluded to it with journalists recently) it appears as if the campaign is doing rather well where it matters, getting delegates.
If the recent delegate selection process in Missouri is anything to go by, Ron Paul is going to arrive at the republican national convention in Tampa on August 14th with a lot more delegates than anyone currently thinks.
As unbelievable as it sounds the very unlikely event of brokered convention in Tampa (something that hasn’t happened in the Republican party since 1948) is now looking very much like the most likely outcome. But the outcome of that is certainly far from being known.
In short Ron Paul still has a real shot, with the convention still some 5 months away that’s a lifetime in these financial markets where ‘out-of-the-blue’ news can break and spin everything on a dime – perhaps even enough to get the last vestiges of the paradigm to shift and secure the Presidency for the only man running on anything remotely resembling sanity amongst a field of the very much ‘un-sane’.
So we thought it would be really worth while to introduce you to the new Fed chair should the American public at large discover said sanity from down the back of the sofa over the next 5 months.
One of the prerogatives of the President of the USofA is to select the chair of the Federal Reserve. A few months back members of the press asked Dr Paul who he would pick as his Fed chair. The question seemed to be offered more as ‘gotcha’ type of journalism, after all surely the man who has carved out a tireless 30 year career on ending the Fed wouldn’t have given the question any serious thought? Wrong. When asked Ron Paul suggested that Jim Grant would be a great pick.
So who is Jim Grant? He is the founder of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer, a financial journal in print for 30 years dedicated to keeping the Fed honest – a very tough job as it has turned out .
