"Not a Single Person Booed" by Allan Stevo. An Account of the GOP Convention, Clark County, Nevada.

I've read a lot about Dr. Paul over the years. I've followed these elections like an adopted child looking for her biological parents. But this take-away by Stevo of the Clark County Nevada GOP Convention gave me a lot of room for pause, to take some time to appreciate what has happened and is happening in our struggle thus far, our fight to see Dr. Paul's dreams of a Restored America come true.

excerpt:

The Fed is more significant than we realize. The Fed must be understood. The Fed is not to be trusted. In fact, the Fed, it’s control over the money supply and interest rates, in a system of fractional reserve banking are to blame for the booms and busts of the business cycle. Those sentences logically follow one another as a person investigates the central bank. Three of those four, once considered strange to speak about in polite company have become acceptable.

They’ve perhaps even become "common sense," so common sense that you’d now appear like an idiot to the masses to publicly stand against an audit of the Fed. America is changing. I was lucky enough to be there to see one example of that change occurring, such an important example. We’ve come a long way from freshman congressman Ron Paul being called before a Senate committee for daring to be the lone vote against the funding of the IMF.

The groupthink of statism as "common sense" and its seemingly unconquerable march forward has shifted. Two hundred years from now there will be many bodies of writing looking at when that shift occurred and mine might be among the primary sources referenced – arguing that that shift occurred in Las Vegas at the Orleans on March 10, 2012.

Yes, Audit The Fed People!

Thank god people are overwhelmingly calling to Audit The Fed.

Not long ago here in Denver, a resolution passed by 89% at a County Convention to Audit The Fed, and for Sound Money. Might only be at County level, but I think that's saying something! Thank heaven.

"I heard many platitude-filled, inconsistent speeches. During one speech, many delegates lukewarmly cheered a Republican elected official when he contradictorily proclaimed "I am a low tax, reasonable regulation, free market capitalist." Somehow I accurately predicted that the next sentence out of his mouth would not be "Free markets regulate themselves – now that’s reasonable regulation.""

Well, once there is an Audit of The Fed, then people will want to End The Fed. Then we'll have free markets.

I find it hard to believe that anything else will be able to take it's(the fed) place. The People, will be back in control. Spending will only be able to come from The People. By that I mean that if the Government wants to spend any money at all it will have to get it voluntarily from the people. That is a Free Market.

When they took us off the Gold Standard they took away our money... in order to make it theirs. -OneTinSoldier

haha what on earth could that 11% be thinking? they DONT want to know how the fed is spending our money? geez.. some people I wonder what is going on in their brain when they dont even want to audit the fed nevermind end it..

Honestly, I could see some

Honestly, I could see some people voting not to audit the Fed simply in spite of RP, knowing that's his major platform. It disgusts me when people act like that, but it's very common.
