Ron Paul had another great exchange with Ben Bernanke, the chairman of the Federal Reserve on Capitol Hill. Paul provides key insight into core philosophical ideas of Austrian economics and paleoconservatism. I find Paul’s perspective on government regulation quite refreshing, particularly in light of the founders original intent in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Checks and balances (forms of regulation) were put into place for the people to regulate the government, not for the government to do the regulation. As leviathan government creeps towards becoming the creator and not the creation thank goodness for people like Ron Paul who invite us to re-examine the direction our government is headed.
