Chairman Paul - Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology Sub-committee

If the Republicans re-take the house in November 2010, will the leadership grant the Chairmanship of the Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology to Ron Paul?

Other than torment Mel Watt, what would Chairmanship allow Ron Paul to do that he currently can’t? Can he make the Fed Chief testify all day twice a year or subpoena documents that he currently can’t?

Chairmen

have a pretty wide power to get bills worded they way they want, and to get them out of committee for a house vote.
It's a very good position to be in.

Shameless self bump. This is an under-discussed topic, considering the power of committee chairmen.

What do you think: Will the Republican leadership assign Paul as Chairman or pass Doctor Paul over again like Tom Delay did?

In light of the fact that constitutions don't effectively restrain the state, how is a limited state achievable?

Would the newly empowered GOP

Would the newly empowered GOP be strident against Paul or give wary support to him? Interesting, because chairmanships are where the power is.

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

bump

for discussion.
