Well PeggyPoo (almost called you PoopyPeg, don't know why)

Ron Paul is not advocating a gold standard. This is a myth. He advocates competition in currencies. Competition in currencies decreases the value of gold in terms of dollars because it forces fiat currencies to either compete or to fail. That is why the moneychangers are scared of him. Their gold will have to be put to better use, like actually paying people. In a free market, commodity-backed currencies will outperform and the top commodit(y/ies) would serve as a de facto standard. Historically this has been gold and silver, but in theory, it could be anything.

I will reserve judgement for now, but you are really sounding like a greenbacker. Freaking out about the gold standard bogey-man and dissing Ron Paul are two of the three main things to look for. THe third, which you have not (yet) displayed, is an intolerance of any kind of interest, usually based on a gross misinterpretation of a passage in the Bible.
