George Will: McCain is ‘yesterday’s maverick’ compared to Ron Paul
“Ron Paul is actually a true conservative,” commented Will’s fellow panelist, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman. “He wants to eliminate Social Security*. He want to go back on the gold standard*. He’s the real thing
*Ron Paul will not just eliminate Social Security and the Federal Reserve. As for Social Security, it will be a phase out/opt out scenario, and those currently on SS will not be dropped. As for the Federal Reserve, there will be a competing currency, and the Fed will be phased out by the competition of the competing currency.
These changes would take place over a number of years, or perhaps longer.
