A new story by Economic Collapse News has suggested that Gary Johnson is a lightweight Libertarian by saying an audit of the Federal Reserve would cause a world wide panic. They are basing this claim off an interview the Governor conducted with Kitco News while at Freedom Fest this past weekend.
Speaking in an interview with Kitco News, Johnson warned that auditing the Federal Reserve would incite worldwide panic. He did say, however, that he would sign legislation that would abolish the Fed, which is, at least a good start. But it appears that he really wants to protect the central bank.
In an attempt to make the former Governor out to be a statist of sorts, this Economic news website has failed.
One of the unique features about Gary Johnson is his realistic approach to governing. In this interview he explains realistic situations, but still offers end solutions. Multiple times he says that Congress will not abolish, nor audit, the Federal Reserve, but if they were to pass that legislation he would sign it as President. He is also right to suggest that an audit will cause a global crisis, but never says that it shouldn’t be done as Economic Collapse News suggests. The world would be turned upside down with an audit, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. We would argue that Johnson never suggests that it would be a bad thing as well.
