G. Edward Griffin's book, Creature from Jekyll Island is a direct plagiarization of Eustace Mullin's Secrets of the Federal Reserve, published in 1952 yet barely a mention of Eustace is made in this spin edition of Eustace's original work.
So the question of Ron Paul arises when he makes no mention on the true source of the information
How nice it is to see someone else who stands up for those who do the work....

The only reason Griffin (or any other regurgitator) knows about Jeckyl Island is because Mr. Mullins told him (them) about it. And the only thing they know about it is what Mr. Mullins told them. These book-peddlers never seen the inside of the library; never did any research; they simply copied someone else's work, compiled a book, and sold it to the village people.
There is no money in telling the people the true source of knowledge.
The Griffin from Jeckyl Island farts through his face about the
bankers, but he states that he is for gold-based currency. Gold-based currency is bank-paper based on non-existent gold; that is what the United States had between 1800 and 1900. ---so much for his opposition to banks, bankers, and paper money.

Ron Paul is hardly more than a comic relief. And he is an ardent free-trader, would sell you to the lowest bidder

for historical background: these anti-Fed, anti-Bank book-peddlers are in reality pro-bank, banker-ites. Not one of them would close down the banks and banking industry.
William Gouge was the last to suggest to outlaw chartered banks, and that was in 1833http://www.yamaguchy.com/library/gouge/gouge_index.html
