David Nolan at Libertarian Party blog:
Sedona, Arizona is an upscale resort town about 80 miles north of Phoenix. Yesterday a reporter from the Sedona Times interviewed me about my U.S. Senate race. All things considered, it turned out pretty well.
“I think, as certainly close to a majority of Americans realize now,” Nolan said, “that we have serious economic problems. Most of which stem from a government that spends way way more money than they take in. We have a Federal Reserve that participates in counterfeiting with the printing of funny money. The large government, working with large banks, involve themselves in every facet of our lives.”
Nolan adds that while the government and media are talking about the possibility of a double dip recession, for most of the people that he knows, the recession never ended. It has just continued on.
A phrase he uses frequently is “fiscal insanity.” Nolan calls for a halt to a Federal Reserve system that has destroyed the value of our currency. It now takes one dollar to buy what could be had for less than five cents in the past. A $5 gold coin from 1910, is worth $300 today, inflation on the order of 60 times.
