Herman Cain Caught In A Lie

Congressman Ron Paul called out Herman Cain the other night regarding Cain's statements about auditing the Federal Reserve. Herman Cain was a former deputy chairman (1992–94) and chairman (1995–96) of the board of directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

Paul's question was this:
“Mr. Cain, in the past you have been rather critical of any of us who would want to audit the Fed. You have said — you’ve used pretty strong terms, that we were ignorant and that we didn’t know what we are doing, and therefore, there was no need for an audit anyway, because if you had one, you’re not going to find out anything, because everybody knows everything about the Fed,” Paul said.

“But now that we have found and we have gotten an audit, we have found out an awful lot on how special businesses get bailed out — Wall Street, the banks, and special companies, foreign governments. And you said that you advise those of us who were concerned, and you belittled — you say call up the Federal Reserve and just ask them. … Do you still stick by this, that that this is frivolous, or do you think it’s very important? Sixty-four percent of the American people want a full audit of the Fed on a regular basis.”
Cain said:

“You have misquoted me. I did not call you or any of your people ignorant. I don’t know where that came from. You’ve gotta be careful of the stuff you get off the Internet.”

Well, here is the proof that Cain lied:

Herman Cain, the Fake Tea Party candidate who wants to add a federal sales tax to the federal income tax.

What was the promise the federal reserve power brokers gave on that first (wealthiest 1%) income tax when the 16th amendment was shoved through coinciding with their creation in 1913?

In five years, they had increased the minimum tax rate by 600%.

We've been lied to enough by the federal reserve. No need to elect another of their leaders. Their inflation on their fiat toilet paper is tax enough.
