Ron Paul Warns of Violence from Pending Dollar Crisis; Says Israel Strike on Iran the Trigger
Scary times ahead? Perhaps, if you take credence in what Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, says.
Paul, who had a strong grassroots following during the 2008 presidential election, explained on Glenn Beck‚Äôs Sept. 30 radio program that perilous times lie ahead due to the Federal Reserve‚Äôs loose monetary policy. Host Glenn Beck asked how an Israeli strike against

The libertarian Paul maintained
‚ÄúI think the Chinese take over,‚ÄĚ Paul said. ‚ÄúIf there‚Äôs a real panic and oil shoots up to a couple of hundred bucks, the Chinese will dump their dollars. Chinese are maneuvering for this. The more we threaten Iran, the stronger the Chinese influence gets because they're using the dollars that they have earned from us and saved, they have a trillion, and they are starting to buy up assets in Iran and build plants and get involved in their energy. So the whole thing is backfiring on us. We‚Äôre getting ready to put tougher sanctions on the Iranians and that will make things that much worse. It won't help the dissidents in

Beck alluded to media charges and warnings from others that there would be violence and contended the right is being set up to take the fall for it.
‚ÄúCongressman Paul, the media and even [Rep.] Patrick Kennedy said this, we heard this from two people, Muammar Gaddafi and I believe the other one was Ahmadinejad that both spoke last week and they ‚Äď we‚Äôre hearing it all the time that there‚Äôs going to be violence here in America, that people are targeting,‚ÄĚ Beck said. ‚ÄúBasically everyone is going to blame this on the right, any kind of violence.‚ÄĚ
There would be violence, but not before a dollar crisis happens as some Democratic politicians and media personalities have warned, but afterward Paul said.
‚ÄúI think that there will be violence,‚ÄĚ he explained. ‚ÄúI hope we don‚Äôt have to go through, you know, a very violent period of time, but that's what happens too often when the government runs out of money and runs out of wealth, the people argue over, you know, a shrinking pie and, of course, the people who have to produce are sick and tired of producing.‚ÄĚ
