    Historical note. The reason the Fed was created here in the first place (rammed through Congress on Christmas Eve in 1913) was that the competition from the new banks closer to the frontier (west of St. Louis) was getting too intense for the big banks in New York. The deposits in those new banks were closing in on the 50 percent mark of the savings in the country. In a free market without a big government shutting down competition, there are plenty of alternative solutions to a Federal reserve bank not to mention the rest of the economy. And without the Fed, the current system of financial control falls apart and the middle class can start its long road to recovery. Also, the whole current banking system is actually based on the principle of bailouts. These guys expect to be bailed out and have the citizens (taxpayers) fork over more and more money. Eventually, of course, the whole system will collapse since it isn’t designed to really work but to be bailed out. The net result is a few really rich people and a lot of middle class people getting poorer and poorer over time. It is a sham of the first order and the really, really rich who depend on it are terrified that enough people will find this out before they are beaten down to total ineffectiveness. A lot of vocal Ron Paul supporters either already know this or are beginning to find it out.

    It might be a winning team, but as far as I am concerned Mitt is as establishment as you get. The point of Ron Paul is that he really would veto the crazy stuff like what has been coming out of Washington recently. He wants to bring the military home and stop occupying all those other countries. Mitt wants to increase overseas military presence even more than we have now and has said so loudly . Financially, we can’t afford that and it would probably just increase the likelihood that we would get more actual terrorist activity anyway. The old Soviet Union crashed from going down that same road and we were conned into spending way too much money in the Middle East already by the very people that started all this. As far as I am concerned, Ron Paul is the first step on the road to recovery where we actually begin to reverse the financial insanity that has been going on here in this country. Ironically, the only reason people are listening to him now is that things have started to get bad enough that they are waking up. The reason the establishment in Washington (and by extension the Media) is frightened enough of him to carry on the way that they do is that we, the people, might find out that we don’t really need things like the Fed banking system and with less government interference we would find out that we as individuals would do enormously better in the long run. Iceland finally told the banks to go to hell and they are way better off a few years later.

    I think Mitt should just have Ron Paul as his VP and it’s a done deal (or visa versa) This would be a winning team.

      Mitt Romney wants to attack Iran.

      Romney approved state mandates.

      Romney is for and against abortion.

    I noticed the biggest ‘button’ voters in NH had on the exit polls was the ability of the candidate to beat Obama. I hope there is a plan underway in Ron Paul’s camp to start bringing this to the forefront soon. Between highlighting Ron’s poll numbers on beating Obama’s (pretty much a dead heat at this early stage to beat Obama – same as Romney’s poll numbers on this issue) and also focusing on Romney’s version of “Obamacare” being the template that was used for this abomination, there shouldn’t be much trouble winning over voters by the ton. Perhaps the idea is to narrow the field first and then use this, but I am anxious to see the campaign focus in on where the voters are concerned most.

    If you studied the philosophy of libertarianism, you would understand that Ron Paul’s aim is to reduce the size of the federal govt so much that it could no longer be a threat to our freedoms and rights. That means sticking to the things the Constitution allows like protecting the country from outside aggression, protecting individual rights, representing the states in trade disputes with other states and countries. If the govt stuck to those allowed tasks, people would be free to grow their businesses and create jobs without govt interference. That’s where your jobs are going to come from.

    @Concerned1 “It’s not the task of government to create jobs”… Yes! That’s so obvious. If it were, then the Soviet Union would have been a very successful country.

      @Mike in Tokyo Rogers@Concerned1 I know its not the task of the government to create jobs. But the economy is what people are most concerned about. Ron needs to state that somewhere on this site. If getting out of the way is the way to go, say that. How about a headline that says “Fixing the economy” then state why getting out of the way of business is the best way and go into detail about why it is best. Headlines are what grab peoples attention. Nothing on this site grabs peoples attention about jobs and the economy. How do people know where to go to find out his views about those 2 issues?

      @Concerned1 Folks, please don’t reply to me anymore. You have to study the issues by yourself. You don’t need to be spoonfed the answers. If you want to be spoonfed, vote Obama.

      @Mike in Tokyo Rogers Excellent. Can that be put on this site as well? This is the first site that came up for me when I googled Ron. Other undecided voters might come here first.

    @Concerned1 Where on his site here does he talk about this? Under the issues tab on top there is no mention of this. Undecided voters who visit this site need to be able to find out his views on this. On the right side of the page there are red highlighted bullets but no mention of how to get the economy going. I only say this because poll after poll shows that the economy is the #1 concern of voters. Somewhere on this side he needs to layout in laymen terms how the things he proposes will have a positive impact on the economy. Big bold red letters saying “Getting the economy going 101″ Then lay it out for all to see.

      MOst of what RP talks about (something that no other candidate does) is abolishing the Federal Reserve. If you want to see jobs created and a drastic improvement in the economy END THE FED!!!

    What about jobs and the economy? Those are very important issues that Ron needs to address. What is his plan to turn the economy around? He will never win until he addresses those to issues.

          @Concerned1 It all goes back to “auditing the fed Ron Paul” and “controlling government spending Ron Paul”. Just search those You’ll find more than 60 million hits on Google.

          download the pdf of RP’s PLAN TO RESTORE AMERICA NOW. This is really important and clues you into the half-truths being told by Romney and others.

      @Concerned1 I am concerned too! You have to understand Paul’s position that the president should not and cannot be running the economy and creating jobs. The constitutional approach (and the one that gives us the best chance of righting this ship) is for the president to influence monetary policy, reduce gov’t spending and restore freedom to the American people. WE are responsible for creating jobs and correcting the economy.

        @Joey in WA Very good, He should say that somewheres on here. If he does say that on here, it is not very easy to find. Us saying it in the comments section is not ideal.

          @Concerned1@Joey in WA Guys, your questions are nonsense. It is not the government’s business to create jobs. Get a basic understanding of economics. This conversation shows that you understand nothing about the free market. Read this classic book: Economics in One Lesson: The Shortest and Surest Way to Understand Basic Economics by Henry Hazlitt

          @Mike in Tokyo Rogers@Joey in WA That doesn’t take away from the fact that it is the #1 issue on the voters mind. Rons other site ronpaul/2012 explains it well.

          @Mike in Tokyo Rogers@Concerned1 Tokyo Mike, Thanks for your insight here.

          Here’s a another nonsensical ?:

          Why are you putting people down for trying to learn about Ron Paul’s positions on important issues?

          I would encourage you to be excited for the opportunity to guide folks in the direction of liberty, and economic prosperity. Support your views with Hazlitt, etc. if needed.

          @Joey in WA@Mike in Tokyo Rogers I was just on MSNBC web site to see vote results. Big header on the home page says “Voters say economy matters most” That Is why i think it is so important to have this site talk about this issue.
