    Default Revealed: An Inside Look at Ron Paul's Portfolio

    Ron Paul is a lot like licorice; not everyone likes him, but the ones who do really like him.

    The former Texas congressman built his reputation and loyal following by taking strong positions on a number of controversial issues .

    The first is his desire to audit and eliminate the Federal Reserve. Paul is a free-market capitalist and doesn't believe a centrally controlled, non-elected entity should have the ability to dictate interest rates and change the trajectory of the economy .

    Paul has also expressed deep concerns about the U.S. dollar, which is not backed by any physical asset , and has been steadily devaluing against other currencies since 2001 under growing domestic trade deficits.

    Finally, Paul is also worried about the possibility of massive inflation . Although the U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics' Consumer Price Index has yet to show any serious signals of inflation, with central banks around the world fully committed to monetary stimulation, the devaluation of fiat currency is a very real consideration for many investors.

    But unlike many politicians simply tickling populist fancy, after taking a look at Paul's portfolio, it's obvious the man puts his money where his mouth is.

    lol

    The former Texas congressman is considered a political renegade, fueling what some analystscall the craziest portfolio they have ever seen.
    Los Angeles County Republican Party (the largest GOP central committee in the nation)
    -57% of the executive board is liberty
    -43% of the executive committee is liberty
    -40% of the central committee is liberty

    Getting involved at the local level is the most important thing you can do to WIN

    be ACTIVE, be EFFECTIVE, be ORGANIZED, be STRATEGIC, be VICTORIOUS.

    I'm surprised he's not worried about counter party risk, etc so as to not want to just own it physically instead.

    In which case, he'd be worried about gold seizure and Obamacare declarations of gold holdings, etc, and therefore not even want to tell anyone what he had at all.

    I'm not sure if you have to report things like coin collections under the rules of that disclosure, as opposed to cash, securities and real estate. I'm sure he follows what ever the Congressional rules of disclosure are.

    Ya any coin over..i forget either 500 dollars or half an ounce..something like that if it was made after Obamacare.

    So basically any one ounce coin made after 2011 you technically have to report.

    Of course no one will and it won't be enforced either.

    Unless you have 1 million dollars in gold coins or something substantial that would merit the their time. In that case best to keep your mouth shut.

    Also I.RS has been known to interview local gold dealers if they are suspicious of you.

    but that is just on transfer isn't it? So if he has held them since 1976, 1977, and the coins aer one oz or less....

    I'm not talking about what he reports to the IRS, though, these portfolio stories come from what he reports about his finances as a congressman's duty. And those rules may or may not include collections. I don't recall ever seeing jewelry or anything, just bank and security accounts and land.
