Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Presidential candidates have to disclose their financial interests, and one of them, U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, an advocate of remonetizing gold, has put his money where his mouth is.

Paul's financial disclosure form from March, posted at Open Secrets, shows mostly precious metals and commodities investments. While Paul reports owning shares of infamous gold hedger Barrick Gold, the form suggests that they may have been obtained in exchange for shares of Placer Dome when it was acquired by Barrick. In any case, under the circumstances -- a great nation being hollowed out and falling apart from corruption, incompetence, and ignorance -- any fault on Paul's part here is small and may be easily forgiven.

You can find Paul's financial disclosure form, listing his investments, here:
