The "End The Fed" Rap Song By Sleuth (VIDEO)

Ever heard the phrase "the medium is the message"? In the case of the rap in "End The Fed," the anti-Federal Reserve music video below, the medium is actually, well, distracting. (Via Reason)

An artist named Sleuth has hit YouTube with a song that mixes classical economics theory, the politics of Ron Paul and even a reference to economist and housing expert Robert Shiller.

The song also ventures into the fringe with terms like "Nazi-Pelosi" (referring to Nancy Pelosi) and "Obama-umism." It also seems have more than a bit of vague antisemitism. (Check out the shot of George Soros as Presidential puppeteer)

More from the song:

"End the Fed, End the Fed

Coin gold and silver when the Fed is dead

A free market money that the founders meant

the best way to reign in the government"

Or take, for example, lines like these: "In the old days they had a bowl of dust, these days we have a belt of rust."
