Alan Keyes, in this video, which i’ll embed below, explains his opposition to the Federal Reserve. He claims, at the 1:20 minute mark, that Ron Paul learned of the problems with the Federal Reserve from him.
Dr. Alan Keyes is being lambasted across the blogosphere for this off-handed comment. Rep. Ron Paul has been speaking critically of the Federal Reserve since at least 1976 when he founded his Foundation for Rational Economics and Education. Keyes was only twenty-six at the time, and would not enter public life until 1985.
Rep. Ron Paul is a sitting US congressman from Texas who ran for President as a Libertarian in 1988. He also ran in 2008 and recieved much support from various third parties and third party activists. Dr. Alan Keyes is a former Ambassador and former Senatorial candidate in Maryland and Illinois. He ran for President in 2008 for a number of political party’s nominations, and eventually appeared on the general election ballot as the nominee of the America’s Independent Party.
