On Sunday, Ron Paul joined Chris Martenson of PeakProsperity.com to record an interview for the Peak Prosperity Podcast. The former Congressman and Presidential candidate made the case in favor of self-reliance and personal responsibility, rather than authoritarian government. In Dr. Paul’s assessment, Washington is too committed to deficit spending and the debt-based economy – both operationally and philosophically – to expect it to embrace a more fiscally-responsible model without a forcing crisis (which he believes is coming). The two spoke about the destructiveness of the Federal Reserve, the necessity of precious metals for one's portfolio, and more!

RP: "I've been as up front as I can on this... And I do feel a bit of personal obligation to so many who have placed a fair amount of trust in me to continue this fight. So, it is a possibility, as it always has been. But it also is a major, major decision on my part. For personal reasons, political reasons, and it just is very tedious... I ask if I could have help in traveling in a private plane. Which makes it much more effective- I can get more places. And it seems like that was well received. We raised a significant amount of dollars that will help. I will be going on Monday, and I can make three major cities in Iowa all in one day and still get to Washington. I mean, the efficiency of this is unbelievable! Not to talk about, you know, staying out of the groping hands of the TSA. But then I go back to Iowa a little bit later on in March, as well as I am going up to New Hampshire. So, obviously, that has some implications. Maybe when I finish all those trips I will feel better about it, and feel energized enough to take it on myself again, to make that decision." (start at 11:57)

The archives for the Schiff Show can be found here. The interview was posted and available on YouTube, thanks to YouTube User: DrRonPaul2012. Dr. Paul did provide an update into his thoughts on another presidential run in 2012. It seems his decision has been postponed for now (rats!):
RP: "I'm still pretty undecided on that. I'm pretty ambivalent and I give about the same answer. I'm actually so engaged right now in doing the job on oversight of the Federal Reserve, that for me to be traveling a lot...I haven't been able to quite adapt to that. But I don't have to decide right now- I'm going to wait a few months. It's interesting that some of the other candidates are doing the same thing. Even Huckabee and Romney are saying: "Well, I might not decide 'til summertime." So, that wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. I don't have to answer right now, so I'll have time to think about it...Things change so quickly! So, events may be such that I think it's worthwhile. Right now I don't feel pressure that I have to say that I am not or that I am doing it, and so I'm going to wait a few more months." (16:41)

Representative Ron Paul talks with Bloomberg's Kathleen Hays about re-establishing the U.S. estate tax, his plans as the new Chairman of the Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy, and the compromise on extending the Bush era tax cuts. The interview is part of Bloomberg's Hays Advantage podcast. While some Republicans feign outrage at Dr. Paul's support for the White House's tax cut proposal, it is another example of the Congressman's pragmatic populist streak: he is unwilling to risk the impending tax hikes for everyone, just to ensure the tax cuts for the richest Americans (who have done incredibly well over the last decade, by any economic measure). Moreover, he would never admit it, but perhaps he feels compassion for the millions of unemployed who have lost their jobs at the hands of the Fed's boom and bust cycle. In an era where the banks and corporations have been bailed out for their reckless speculation, should the Republican congress make their fiscal stand against the unemployed? How about cutting the funding for the wars, the embassies, the bureaucracy, or the body scanners?
