RENO, NV -
The U.S. Congress' best known gold bug, Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, (also a two-time presidential candidate) apparently really likes Goldcorp stock.
Paul's 2010 financial report released Wednesday revealed that-although he sold up to $50,000 in Goldcorp stock last year, he has hung onto a range of $500,001 to $1 million in additional Goldcorp stock.
His Goldcorp stock outstrips his holdings in other major gold miners like AngloGold-Ashanti ($250,001 to $500,000); Barrick ($100,001 to $250,000) and Newmont ($250,001 to $500,000).
Paul is probably the nation's best known advocate of returning the U.S. dollar to the gold standard.
He also has invested in a considerable portfolio of gold and silver mining company stocks including: $100,001 to $250,000 in Agnico-Eagle; $100,001 TO $250,000 in IAMGOLD; $50,001 to $100,000 in Pan American Silver; and $50,001 to $100,000 in Eldorado Gold.
Other Paul mining stock holdings include from $15,001 to $50,000 in Kinross Gold; $15,001 to $50,000 in Golden Star Resources; $15,001 to $50,000 in Mag Silver; and $15,001 to $50,000 in Silver Wheaton.
Apollo Gold (now Brigus Gold), Coeur d'Alene Mines, Great Basin Gold, Metaline Mining, Quebec's Virginia Mines, and Wesdome Gold Mines warranted a range from $1,001 to $15,000 each in Paul's equity investment.
Vista Gold managed to attract only $1 to $1,000 in investment from Paul.
Unfortunately, Paul reported that only Agnico-Eagle, Barrick, Goldcorp, IAMGOLD, Kinross and Newmont paid him dividends last year. None of the mining companies that paid dividends exceeded the range of $1,000 to $2,500 each of income to Rep. Paul.
The congressman reported a minimum net worth of $2.2 million in 2010.
Sadly, no other top leader of the House, Democrat or Republican, reported major holdings of gold company stock last year.

In addition, to think, I was going to vote for him...
Oh please, don't LIE. You have been crying about his foreign policy since you got here. How is it that you think people would forget such things?? Aside from all the racist rhetoric etc about Paul, lies like this from people like you is proof you're just on here to troll. You've been called out before about this, I have no idea why you haven't been banned yet.
Every 4 years a president is giving a 30-page letter that they must study to win publics votes. Every 4 years a president is giving an agenda of what to say, and what not to say to please the voters minds, hoping to get a vote.
No president in the history of life has ever pleased the pheasants that knock at the castles door with pitch forks in hand demanding just the basic needs. No republican…No Democrat… and no independent.
They understand that it’s the 1% they care about, but it’s the 99% that they have to trick to get into office, with its magical ,exotic mind games that they play with the 99%, out that 99% they understand that 75% of the 99% have an IQ no greater than .04
So tell me how the magic show turns out before 2012...and why are you so angry, are you ok, pm if you need a shoulder to cry on…its not that serious!

No president in the history of life has ever pleased the pheasants...
Hmmm! This phrase certainly captured my attention since a one-day member at Daily Paul today used the same term, when he/she actually meant peasants. His/her minor spelling errors and writing style are similar to yours.
I suppose the above is off-topic, and of course, LogiosHermes27 may not be that same person. I guess I just don't understand those who on one board act like supporters and on another board or sometimes the same board, smear the same person they previously supported. Why do I care? Because our country is headed off a cliff, and I believe Ron Paul is the only candidate who can BEGIN to turn this ship of state around. If I truly thought Ron Paul were a racist, he would NOT be getting my vote. He is not a racist; he's a kind, caring individual who truly loves this country and cares about its people..all its people, no matter the color of skin, no matter their religion or lack thereof, no matter their sexual preference. He's a statesman. He is a strict Constitutionalist and would not attempt to push his views onto other people. He has my vote...and those trying to take him down have my contempt.
Fantastic thread, elPresidente.. I finally managed to read it all the way through!
It’s called speech and writing recognitions, you have to fool some of these… ‘BUGS’ that listen to every word you say…have to keep the MIB that live 20 stories beneath the Surface.
Because when they find you… they most likely going to end being the next
i think ron paul is programmed

The ghostwriters were lew rockwell and murray rothbard. They probably never were racists, but the newsletters were a part of an organized movement that Rothbard called "reaching out to the rednecks" by appealing to racists.
It was fairly successful too, as attested by Stormfront's steadfast support for Ron Paul, and the steady flow of money from racists, including the KKK.
Ron paul may not be a racist, but he made a lot of money stoking racial fears and peddling conspiracy theories in various newsletters.
He's also lying about not knowing who wrote the articles.
The man lives in a fantasy world where 'the free market will fix it' is the answer to everything.
He's unfit for office.
