Reader comments about this quote:
Merrill Jenkins, MonetaryRealist said " If something is true, what does it matter who said it? He also said in 1979, the year that he died "We have world government now, our monetary system would not work if all of the world's bankers were not in collusion." Didn't the events of October and November show that all of the world's bankers ARE in collusion?

    We hold this truth to be self evident.

    A little light in our congress would be nice, and unusual.
     -- jim k, austin     
    And most of the world is thankful that our monetary system is working and therefore by deduction thankful that the bankers and Treasury Secretaries are in collusion. What would you prefer Dave a monetary system that does not work and world leaders and bankers fighting and going to war with each other. We live in a world of opinion and credibility. A person who cries wolf to often or lies to much has a hard time to get his truth out later, but a consistant and trust worthy man will not, thus it does matter who is the truth teller at critical moments.
     -- Waffler, Smith, Arkansas     
    It doesn't take much light to chase a lot of darkness from a room. It only takes the first brave soul to strike the match.
     -- Ken, Allyn, WA     
    First there must be those that are open to the truth. The light of truth is often shut out by a mind that has been preconditioned to reject the truth.

    Its’ true Dave it doesn't matter who said it. However on the left an argument about what is true will not be about facts. It will be about the personal destruction of the truth teller. Debating in a public setting only will disclose the truth to a larger number of people. Debate then becomes something that has to be avoided. Instead comes a barrage of personal attacks that are almost always unfounded. Eventually the only thing that is heard is the attacks and the person that wanted to enlighten is politically lynched. Unfortunately the people who would like to spread truth often become afraid to say anything because they prize their job and reputation more than the truth. It is seldom and far between that we are graced with one that will suffer the slings and arrows and stick to their guns.
