    Fractional reserve banking is the root cause. If there would be ANY regulation on these banks, it should be a cap on the reserve lending ratio.

    I could get behind that.

    Ron did well here, I think. The panel seemed to agree mostly, you could tell Meeka definitely agreed with all the mm-hmm's she was giving in the background.

    His best point was that if these assets are worthless on the open market, which they obviously are, why is it somehow a good idea to stick the American taxpayers with the liability?

    A great question that I'd love to see someone here answer.

    Feel free to prove that Ron Paul is a kook by debunking what he said in the video.

    I don't think this video shows it but they actually start insulting Dr. Paul after he's no longer on to defend himself.

    a challenge? I'll mark this for later tonight. I think Ron is a smart guy with kookie ideas. We'll see if I can debunk any of his ramblings.
