Ron Paul isn’t in attendance at the 2012 Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, but some of his ideas are center stage.
One of the first panels of the largest gathering of conservative activists was pure Paul: “The Need for a Twenty-first Century Gold Standard.”
The panel’s moderator, Jeffrey Bell, policy director of the American Principles Project, invoked the name of the great Paul when he introduced Jim Grant, the editor of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer.
“I can call him Mr. Chairmen because last fall Congressmen Ron Paul recommended Mr. Grant as his choice, should he be elected as chairmen of the Federal Reserve” Bell said.
