Ron (audit the Fed) Paul is now making speeches for $50,000 a pop. What a parlay Gov't is for him

Let's see-10 speeches a week, at most 120 minutes a day=$300,000
times 20 weeks a year is a cool 6 million dollars for this 1%er.
What a freakin' hypocrite he is, and to think, he accomplished NOTHING his entire career.
What a windfall profit this is.
He is laughing all the way to bank.

Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) "will follow the well-trod path of hitting the paid speaking circuit after his retirement from Congress -- and will charge $50,000 per appearance," BuzzFeed has learned.

"Paul's rate puts him about in the middle of the field for former politicians. He's making more than John Huntsman, Mike Huckabee, and Joe Scarborough, but much less than Al Gore and Arnold Schwarzenegger, each of whom command six-figure fees."

1. Fake Libertarian fleecing the sheep who are too stupid to know what a con man sounds like.

Just say that you are anti-tax, anti-minority, anti-woman, anti-Labor and the droolers will beat a path to your door, money in hand, begging you to take it.
