A runaway poll w/"other" as the winner.

This poll result is why we will still win this fight for Liberty. I am not about to stop voting for Ron Paul, even if 'other' is all that shows.

Christina Romer-----------35 (3%)
Timothy Geithner---------205 (20%)
Lawrence "Larry" Summers--64 (6%)
Janet Yellen-------------150 (14%)

Let RP enjoy his grandchildren and retirement

Ron Paul 2012

"Audit The FED, Then Kill It" ~ Ron Paul

Tomorrow Mornings Headline: 'FED Chief Ron Paul to close the FED and turn out the lights'


Day after tomorrow headline:

Bankers flee The USA for fear of prosecution...

Bad food, worse weather, please rEVOLution the states so I can bring my family back home!
Rosa Koire for for President!

Now That's Even Better!!

Can't wait for that day to come..Ha!

Only third! I thought even

Only third! I thought even most neocons say "sure i like ol' Ron make him head of the Treasury Federal Reserve"

(they don't know the difference Bless their hearts) :)

Yeah but...


Kind of negates any positives of having Ron Paul in 3rd.

Besides, the idea is absurd...That would like asking Dr. Paul to head one of the big New York mob families.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

Leave Bernanke in there until

Leave Bernanke in there until he dies, or the Fed does.

talk about missrepresenting the facts

"Paul is a persistent critic of the Fed who repeatedly introduced bills while he was in Congress to eliminate the Federal Reserve system altogether."

He only introduced bills to audit the FED, not to end it.

End the Fed.

Wow, love the fact

that people see RP as the anti-FEDster. Sad that anyone would think that he would actually "work for" the FED.
