Rand Paul to Mitt Romney: Support Audit the Fed bill


"Reigning in the Federal Reserve is the signature issue for Dr. Paul's campaign, and the one issue that separates Ron Paul supporters from much of the rest of the Republican Party. When voters gain an appreciation for the damage that is done to the free enterprise system by the often covert actions of the Federal Reserve, many of them become Ron Paul supporters and they never go back. If Governor Romney were to say he agreed with Dr. Paul on this issue, and he was willing to put his political reputation on the line - in a real sense validating Dr. Paul and his supporters, it might create some "softening" toward Governor Romney."

Great Move Rand! Just What I Expected...

Did you all think that Rand endorsed Romney because he believes Romney is some principled man who will carry out the will of the people, or even have fidelity to the Constitution, over the special interests who own him?

As others have correctly stated. Rand has made a brilliant move. Romney, Jeb Bush, Condi, Mitt, Cheney, & the rest of the neocons, will not even mention the Federal Reserve....Rand brought it right in the forefront on Hannity's propaganda hour. Our job is to continue to be active in helping pass Audit the Fed. REMEMBER: nearly everything that is going wrong with our country is tied, at is corrupt root, to the actions & special interest Fed policies. How effectively we relate this to the unknowing neighbor and fellow citizens is important. We must keep the pressure on the Fed by effectively explaining this to our fellow citizens. Current and future events that will take place are directly connected with the shady dealings of the central bank. Do not be discouraged, but be encouraged & keep pushing for the audit, & the incompetence of the feds actions will reveal itself..

Audit the Fed, Audit the Fed…

Audit the Fed, Audit the Fed… Does anyone, and I really mean anyone really believe that those individuals in charge of both the republican party and the democrat party AND the Fed (and yes, I do believe that those individuals are all the same) are going to allow a real audit? Really? Does anyone here actually believe that the people who perform the audit are not bought and paid for by the masters of the Fed? Does anyone believe that the numbers that they will be given are true and accurate? I will go on the record right now and predict that if there is ever an audit on the federal reserve bank, the findings will show absolute efficiency and perfect record keeping. They will be found to be absolutely perfect and a shining example of exactness, efficiency, and very frugal and above board with the peoples money. A shining example to every citizen and every business…blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada…

And on the very same day that the official and trustworthy results are released to the public, everyone on Faux News will tell their brain-dead listeners that the crazy old coot from Texas, Ron Paul, has been proven to be an even bigger loon than even the good and honest reporters at Faux News have always reported him to be.

And I am shocked that any member of this site actually expects it to be anything different than what I have just described. Who was it who said that it doesn't matter who votes, all that matters is who counts the votes. That same thing will be at work if or when the Fed is audited. I know that I sound like a horribly negative person, but I have been conditioned to believe and to think as I do. And while I am at it, let me add that I absolutely believe that politics and voting will NEVER change any of these things.

This is a brilliant move from Rand!

Rand told people that one of the main reasons he endorsed Romney was that Romney had said to him in their private meeting that he supports Auditing the Fed.

Now Rand asks Romney to make that promise public.

If Romney doesn't publicly support Auditing the Fed, Rand can say that Romney is a liar and he cannot any more support him.

If Romney would support Auditing the Fed now he must in debates against Obama give arguments why he supports Auditing the Fed and why Obama does not and if ROmney where to become president, then Rand can expect Romney to sign the Auditing the Fed into a law and if he does not do that Rand can again rail against Romney and call him a liar and challenge him in 2016. It will happen anyway in 2016 if Romney would become president in 2012 as Rand knows for sure that Romney will not support Auditing the Fed if he is president. He will of course flip-flop.

I hope that I am not only dreaming with this theory of mine!?!?!

Not dreaming

Your analysis is right on target. But I don't think it needs to be as hardball as it may sound here. Paul has priorities. Romney has priorities. In this case, their priorities will intersect.

reading the hissing comments below

is disgusting.

you people aught to just admit that you are anarchist and move on.

What makes you say that,

What makes you say that, Troy? Whether or not I agree with something that someone says, I still support their right to say it. To many people it certainly does seem that Rand put his own interests before his Father. If Rand really felt that he had to endorse Romney, why didn't he just do it at the convention after Romney (I loath to say this part) is given the nomination by the party? That would have been the honorable thing to do. If you have been here for years, and you have, it seems that you would support our right to free speech. I think that Ron would do that.

This is a positive move. Most of these people try to slide along, never committing to anything. I doubt he will put his ass on the line though, so the entire country is going to witness that he is in the bankers pocket. (as if we didn't know that already)

Actions speak louder than words.

Ron Paul's been going at the Fed consistently for decades and if at this moment Mitt Romney suddenly supports the bill, I won't believe him for a single second

But There is More To It

Of course the die hards would not trust Romney if he said that he supported the issue.

But the beauty of this move by Rand is that Rand already showed his willingness to play the game. Now Rand is saying to Mitt "Your turn".

It is a lose/lose situation for Mitt, regardless of what he does or does not do. And a win/win situation for Rand.

saying nothing about Rand.But,I will never ever ever vote for Romney,or Obama.These liars have had their chances at making good on their word.

Thank you Rand

This is THE talking point I will be making at my upcomming central committee meeting.

We sure have come a long way from not talking about the Federal Reserve Bank, to busting through it being a, "conspiracy theory", to a Ron Paul cult club issue and now, openly putting it on the table.

I know I am really new at this. Not long ago I was an unheard of country doctor. I am not like my dad nor will I ever be like my dad but I saw an opportunity and I took it.

I pissed all over my father and THE RON PAUL R[3]VOLUTION MOVEMENT to bet on you and I being partners. I did it to please you ♥

Mitt Romney: "Come with me. My private jet is on the tarmac waiting and I have to run. We can talk about it there. By the way: Have you ever been in a Leer Jet, Rand?"

Rand Paul: No! I never have! :(

Mitt Romney: If you roll with us, Rand, you won't even have to worry about "First Class".
