A quote from a letter promoting one of Ron Paul’s early 1990′s politics and investing newsletters has come back to haunt him. In the eight page missive, which was mailed in 1993, Congressman Paul warns of a “coming race war in our big cities,” “the federal-homosexual cover-up on AIDS” and a government scheme to track people with “New Money” that ends with armed IRS agents on your doorstep.
“I uncovered the New Money plans during my last term in the U.S. Congress, and I held the ugly new bills in my hands,” wrote Congressman Paul. ”These totalitarian bills were tinted pink and blue and brown, and blighted with holograms, diffraction gratings, metal and plastic threads and chemical alarms. It wasn’t money for a free people. It was a portable inquisition.”
Congressman Paul, who served in the House of Representatives from 1979 to 1989 prior to his latest stint said he learned of many secret government plots during his time in office. In one interestingly punctuated graph, he described many of these schemes:
“I’ve been told not to talk but these stooges don’t scare me. Threats or no threats, I’ve laid bare the coming race war in our big cities. The federal-homosexual cover-up on AIDS, (my training as a physician helps me see through this one) The Bohemian Grove–perverted, pagan playground of the powerful. Skull & Bones: the demonic fraternity that includes George Bush and leftist Senator John Kerry, Congress; Mr. New Money. The Israel lobby, which plays Congress like a cheap harmonica. And the Soviet-style ‘smartcard’ the Justice Department has in mind for you.”
Congressman Paul has already faced controversies over the content of his newsletters and disavowed their contents. Over the weekend he walked out of a CNN interview after being questioned about the newsletters.
“I didn’t write them, I disavow them, that’s it,” Congressman Paul said.
Despite his disavowal of the newsletters, Congressman Paul hasn’t yet denied writing promotional materials for the newsletters. This latest correspondence, which was uncovered by Reuters and The New Republic contributing editor James Kirchik, bears Mr. Paul’s signature.
