    Ron Paul is the only candidate that is actively pursuing auditing and reforming the private Federal Reserve Bank. This is, hands down, the single most important issue facing America, with implications pertaining to the military, government spending, civil rights. It is because the Federal Reserve has such influence over so much of the country – if ever there should be regulation it should be in the case of the Fed, which has zero substantive public oversight. Alan Greenspan admitted himself that the Federal Reserve is an independent organization responsible to no other government agency, including the presidency, that can overrule actions its’ actions:

    The 2008 economic ‘meltdown’ was basically a shake-down of our elected government. Senators and Congressman from across the country have come forward and stated that they were told that if they didn’t pass and sign into law the officially unnamed stimulus bill that the economy would crash and martial law would most likely go into effect. An incestuous group of current Goldman Sacs and former Goldman Sacs members working for the Treasury Dept and the SEC along with the Obama administration were convincing America that the sky was literally falling, and we must act. It made the fear-mongering lead up to the Iraqi War look tame:

    But I am convinced that Ron Paul divides the Republican base too much to ever win the Republican candidacy. Plus if he was ever elected I believe he would be assassinated shortly before auditing the Fed. He also isn’t a great speaker, he comes off as high pitched and at times poorly spoken. I fear he may be unelectable and the only other candidate that has addressed monetary reform is Herman Cain, and he isn’t serious about returning to the gold standard – hell, the man served as chair to the Kansas Federal Reserve Board.

    Ron Paul has an extremely long voting history allowing a unique perspective of his ideas. He was the only Republican to vote against the Iraqi War, and I suppose you don't believe the Federal Reserve needs more oversight?

    Please see the 2008 GOP primary election results for your answer.

    I probably agree with 65-70% of Paul's stances (his stances on government expenditure, etc especially)... BUT... I do not consider him electable

    I'm a hardcore supporter, and he doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell.

    Republican bureacrats and voters agree with Obama more than Ron Paul, he's too much of a small government fiscal conservative for republicans.

    Ron Paul will never be elected President. He has some good ideas, but he also has enough weirdness to keep him out of the Oval Office.
