Dave Brat: "I support a full audit of the Federal Reserve System."

'nuff said!

That quote is from Dave Brat's site at this link...

He's real good on the 2nd Amendment too.

What does he think he will do?

This brings no one any closer to a peaceful responsible planet... government is an illusion... wake up from your voting stupor:

I sense a Brat "MoneyBomb"

coming on!

Win the House take the Senate! Impeach Obama!

Hey, I like this guy. From

Hey, I like this guy. From his web site:

"Term Limits
I am a strong proponent of term limits for members of Congress. Career politicians and special moneyed interests have corrupted our democratic system. I pledge to support and submit legislation that enforces term limits. Ideally, Congressional term limits would be for 12 years total, across both The House and The Senate. Thus, I pledge to term limit myself to 12 years in Congress."


It's a start!

Let's audit ALL of the agencies. Could you imagine the surprises that await the public with this type of disclosures?



he does support that stupid balanced budget amendment.

Well, no one is perfect.

"No army can stop an idea whose time has come"

As a public cartel of private institutions the Fed will resist.

Why doesn't government audit itself.

How can people trust the US Treasury with out proof that they have been beyond reproach since the beginning. The Treasury handles all transactions with the Federal Reserve.

Ross Perot pointed out repeatedly that the government's bookkeeping was undecipherable.

Like one big slush fund, so it seems.

Free includes debt-free!


Tea Party RINO! Heard him say he is for WAR !!!
America needs to project Military around the World,or we will have chaos!!!
Not a true liberty type guy!

He was my economics professor

He was my economics professor in college. Trust me, he's better than Cantor, but the man strongly supported McCain in 08. You are right, in the interview he said we have to have America's military around the world or there will be chaos. He is the lesser of two evils, but the man is no Ron Paul.

What kind of professor was he?

I was hoping that he would be one of those LearnLiberty super-libertarian professors. But hey, at least he isn't a Keynesian, right?

What kind of economic theory did he espouse?

"Truth is Treason in an Empire that lies" - Ron Paul

Educate the masses, and win in the end.

I heard that he teaches F.A. Hyak in his classes.

That is a good thing at least.

Economically he seems to be pretty good but foreign policy-wise I don't know.

I'm afraid he's probably as misguided as the GOP.

In other words, Brat is no Ron Paul.

"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."
-Ron Paul

Well, no one is

Besides RP. But if he teaches Hayek... That is a good sign, though he doesn't necessarily agree with him, as told by his student below.

This is definitely astounding though!

"Truth is Treason in an Empire that lies" - Ron Paul

Educate the masses, and win in the end.

Well he only ever taught me

Well he only ever taught me Microeconomics, which is more about households and industries, not macroeconomics which is more about the Fed. He definitely seemed fairly free market, but he never interjected his personal beliefs. He was very non-biased in his teachings, which I liked. He also required business casual attire and if you didn't he would assign you an ethics paper. Overall I like him a lot. But he could easily become Cantor if someone like Rand Paul is elected and morphs into another Reagan.

Well, that's disappointing. I was afraid of that. One of my...

...biggest issues is foreign polcy, foreign aid, wars and occupations.

If he supports the republican status quo on these issues then he's no better than the Lyndsey Grahams and John McCains.

If Brat is a Neo-Con then of course, the establishment will welcome him with open arms.

I guess we're back to the lesser of two evils again.

By the way, I don't pretend for a moment that the present day Tea Party is NOT a Neo-Con organization.

The Tea-Party of today (which has been mostly been hijacked and co-opted by the GOP) bears no resemblance to the one which was formed in 2007 by Paul supporters.

"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."
-Ron Paul

Well, I think that even

Well, I think that even though Brat could morph into a full fledge neo-con, his victory is still a good thing. It's put establishment types on notice that no one is untouchable, and hopefully will make them more conscious of their votes and actions.

In his victory speech, he

In his victory speech, he said the Tenth Amendment is one of his biggest issues. If he stands firm on that, he will be one of the best in DC. 2008 was a long time ago, a lot have moved towards liberty since then. We shall see. Thanks for the info.

SteveMT's picture

Brat says no rubber stamp vote for Boehner as Speaker.

I'm wondering what Brat thinks about Ron Paul?
If Brat ultimately wins the primary and is seated in the 114 th Congress, he would not commit his vote for speaker to House Speaker John Boehner, but offered his support to any contender who's "more free market and more fiscally responsible."

"I'd have to take a good look at what they're doing but I support people who follow the Republican creed, and so it doesn't look like the leadership is doing a good job on that right now," Brat said.

"They're not free market at all, right? They do not take free market seriously and they're off on fiscal responsibility."
