End the Fed: The video game
Ending the Fed isn’t going to happen any time soon, so why not try it out it in virtual reality? One Ron Paul fan is developing a low-budget video game featuring the Texas Republican on his journey to abolish the central bank, Real Time Economics reports. “You play the role of Ron Paul and make your way across all 50 states collecting Gold (sound money) and Delegates ... to ensure your seat as the President,” the game’s developer, Daniel Williams, explains on the project’s Kickstarter page. Players also progress to “boss fights” to battle each of the 13 branches of the Fed in the game, which Williams plans to release this summer.
In truth, even the presidency wouldn’t secure Paul’s dream of ending the Fed: That would take an act of Congress, or amending the Constitution. But Williams’s game can at least fuel the dream of Paul’s fan base.
