Ron Paul was inspirational when I started to learn about the Federal Reserve and what American money really was. It was a shocking educational journey which started when an applicable video of Ron Paul questioning Ben Bernanke in the Congress was posted on, the precursor to Reddit.

After learning from him I donated to his campaign. I then became involved in his campaign in Illinois going to Meetups and making signs, posting signs around Lake County, IL. The most active supporter in the Chicagoland area is a man named Bob Schlerth and he was responsible for most of the signs made that I put up.

I met so many cool people and new this movement would change things. Now here we are with President Trump who works with and is supported by the Liberty Caucus and Tea Party Caucus. A lot of the ideas from the Ron Paul campaign are now the prominent views in America. The Tea Party Caucus hold 36 seats in the House and Senate.

Ron Paul’s and my hard work paid off.

For learning about money and how it is used by the Fed I recommend reading Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin.
