"I don’t think there could be a more perfect subcommittee for Ron Paul."

A day late and a dollar short...

It's too late for Dr. Paul to do any good in this position. We need to push him into the Speaker of the House position. Call, write or e-mail your Republican person now and demand it.

If they tell you that John Boehner has seniority, remind them of this:


Boehner literally cried and begged for the Congress to pass the Wall Street bailout bill -- which accomplished precisely nothing when it came to preventing the current economic catastrophe. He is is a neocon and economically illiterate. Tell them that if they didn't get that message this past Tuesday that America is fed up with GOP-banker cronyism, you can make sure they get the message two years from now.

Ron Paul for Speaker of the House, 2010; President, 2012.

I hope

this happens...

Ron Paul 2012...and beyond

Calm down everyone, he's not chairman, yet!

As awesome as it sounds that Dr. Paul will be subcommittee chairman, don't count on it, yet. It's 3 months away before the next congress begins and there is going to be a lot of dealmaking among the party leadership before that time. They took it from him 3 times before, I wouldn't rule it out again.

It's not up to Dr. Paul

The Republican Conference will vote on Paul leading the subcommittee, taking into consideration seniority and Republican leadership's preference.

This from Lew Rockwell:

"If the Republicans weren’t dishonest, and entirely in the pocket of the big banks, Ron Paul would be taking Barney Frank’s place as chairman of the finance committee. Not satisfied with blocking him there, they have even kept him out of the chairmanship of the monetary policy subcommittee, as Barney has frequently remarked. The first time the Republicans erased Ron’s seniority; the second time, they imported a congressman from another committee to take the job; the third time, they temporarily abolished the subcommittee. This time, I think they would fear the backlash, so Ron will probably be chairman. If so, I can’t wait for his hearings on the QE2, the gold, the business cycle, and much else."

He has been passed up three times before when he was in line to become chairman of the subcommittee. Hopefully they vote for him this time.

I can’t wait for his hearings

I can’t wait for his hearings on the QE2 as well as QE1 and the rest of the scams of monumental proportions by the FED. We can't let them get away with their previous scams.

I think something like this

doesn't come to a surprise to the nominee.

wow, end the fed! is it

wow, end the fed! is it really happening?

my favorite part of this,

aside from the obvious effect of exposing the fed, is the effect on the IMF, the World Bank, and policy on coinage.

Paul makes the admission at precisely 13:40 of this video:

"I'm going to bring up [auditing the fed] immediately,
and it will be brought up constantly in the subcommittee
that i will be chairing


Great Interview ! !

So, Dr. Paul again says he will introduce a new audit the Fed bill, and this time they will try to "Legally" force the Fed to comply !


this was just posted by somebody else

but the post magically disappeared.

Its not (always) magic.

maybe not the post

but being put in as the chair of the committee was certainly magic. =)
