Ron Paul launches the same bill to kill the Fed every single year, not for the purpose of grandstanding, but for the purpose of ending the Fed... if you know anything about the man (doubtful) they you'd know that he puts forth these bills, not for gaining attention, but because he acts based on what he believes in. His actions have always lined up with his words. Gaining national attention??? Seriously??? The man was blacklisted during the election, and is still never taken seriously by anyone besides his followers...

Personally, I wish more congressmen and women were in favor of ending the federal reserve... I wish Ron Paul wasn't the only constant voice against the Fed!... but what's another 800 Billion of fiat currency? The Fed is bankrupting this country, with one bail out at a time..

If you can't see the problem with the Fed, then all I can do is shake my head..


Just to play devils advocate here..what do you replace with the Fed? How quickly do you reconcile gold standard or petrol dollars or even the fiat you mentioned?

In the 70's we basically changed the game, AGAIN, with going away from the gold standard for a myriad of reasons. All strategic.
The anglo's stick around even behind closed doors. Just being real.

Populisim brings some good ideas to the table and does start discussion but doesn't bring viable meta ideas to the table.

Used to be the silver standard. Now it's gold. The current system needs work, but no way does something as clunky as using precious metals work in today's complex economies.

Just because your computer crashes doesn't mean you go back to stone tablets and scrolls.

Why not something every man in the world can get behind?


Boobies.

I try to get in front or between boobies personally.

But you can do whatever you like there, Buffalo Bill.
