Ron Paul: No Matter the Presidential Race Outcome, the US Is Going the Way of the USSR


Three-time presidential candidate Ron Paul, interviewed Tuesday on Fox Business, suggested that in the 2016 presidential race, in which Paul is not supporting any candidate, neither Democrat Hillary Clinton nor Republican Donald Trump is proposing a course of action that will fix the fundamental problems of the US government. These problems are severe, says Paul, who opines that “we’re witnessing” in American now “something similar to the breakup of the Soviet system” decades earlier. Paul says the Soviet Union system didn’t work then, just like the United States system doesn’t work now.

As the US system breaks up, Paul notes that a focus of the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets, also known as the Plunge Protection Team, is on keeping stock market prices high. This, explains Paul, is one place where price inflation arising from increased money supply is concentrated.

If Clinton wins in November, Paul predicts “overall the policies of the country and the trends in the country economically and in foreign policy won’t change one bit.” Regarding Trump, Paul zeroes in on foreign policy, declaring that Trump’s foreign policy position is far from the nonintervention America needs. Paul wryly comments, “You think Trump’s going to bring the troops home and stop all those wars?”
