Ron Paul's explanation of what was to come (recorded in 1988) is likely the best I've heard (and it was 21 years ago!) - The top link (headline link) is to Part 2 found on AboveTopSecret where you can get the full interview - Below are YouTube links.
BELOW are YouTube links to the interview in 5 parts and embedded here. 21 freaking years ago and he sounds even better than now. As a libertarian candidate he was freer to be more candid and clear.
(How did libertarians _know_ what was coming?... watch this video and you'll understand why we say, "How is that you Do Not Know?")
