Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) and Mises Institute President Lew Rockwell, Jr., earlier today, discussed the connection between the U.S. government’s war and monetary policy with Judge Andrew Napolitano on his FOX Business Network program, “Freedom Watch.” Dr. Paul notes that consent is manufactured for the Fed because it’s tyranny is necessary for the Republicans’ war fetish and Democrats’ welfare illusion. Mr. Rockwell notes the ‘dictatorship’ of the presidency and Washington’s quest for global domination and usurpation (5:23):

Earlier today, he spoke with Amy Goodman at Democracy Now! (11:48):
