    Now how's THAT for Conservative Republican. Before anyone jumps down my throat about "gold standards" and such, his Monetary Policy is not about bringing back the gold standard, in regards to the way it was. He merely would like to see competition to the Fed's irresponsible fiat monetary system. You'd still be free to use your paper dollars if you so chose.

    I'm not just partial to this because RP is my candidate. I'm partial to this because this is CONSERVATIVE. This is so much better then printing or borrowing $150 billion dollars, DOUBLING last year's budget deficit, and giving it to irresponsible consumers...what amounts to a band-aid on a broken arm.

    You're ok with his foreign policy? I thought you were a little more pro-Iraq War, no?

    He's a kook, he doesn't stand a chance; don't waste your vote on him.

    I waiver back and forth on Iraq a bit. I see the potential if we accomplish our goal. But at the same time it's looking more and more to simply not be worth the effort.

    Nothing wrong with a gold standard. Problem is that we would have to reduce the monetary supply drastically. For now I can work with the above, but would like to see a hard money standard adopted.

    Romney is Bill Clinton Lite, Huckabee is a zealot, McCain is an honorable man who has forgotten how to be a Republican. Better a sincere Kook than a faux statesman.

    Been there done that. It is time to leave and the Iraqis will stand and deliver or die in place. Our military mission is completed.

    Yes! Dr. Ron Paul is the only candidate to have written books on monetary policy and economics! The only candidate who can debate these policies not recite lines, but debate. Speaking of reciting lines notice how Bush and all the other candidates/politicians were pushing for a 100-150 billion temporary stimulous package to reduce taxes and let socialism of its reins a tiny bit and let capitalism propel us to wealth again? They would recite how this number was the perfect amount, never stopping to argue the logic behind this policy or the logic behind their conclusions why this was good. I have one question for all these politicans. If reducing government taxes will make the economy and our citizens better off, why not make it permanent?

    Yet RP gets called a 'kook'. This is just because his views are in opposition to government interests hence his views are in opposition to the federal reserve and other government funded people. We cannot trust even university economists since most are indirectly funded by the government. Sure there are lots of economists at these schools who still support the classic American (Austrian economic) viewpoint, but they are funded by the government which means there will be subtle pressures to direct things certain ways. If the system is rigged, humans desire to be successful so will compromise their positions. Even Greenspan and Bernake both shared Pauls views until they sold out for power. Who should be in charge, are the people to tell the government which is the right way, or is the government suposed to teach us the 'right way' in 'education' systems starting at the age of 5?

    Many people seem think Ron Paul is so radical his policies would change things, in the way a left leaning government would change things, ie very drastically and could turn out very very badly. Things would change, but for the better. There would be no chaos. Any lite shock felt by implementing Pauls economic package would be akin to the shock felt by Russia when it abandoned communism, but on a much smaller scale. Better to experience it on a minor scale now the more we delay the inevitable the harder it will be. Right now with our power and the instant boost we would gain by implementing these policies would propel us to such heights that humanity would look at this period as a semi dark ages where progress was needlessly halted due to big government wasting our time and energy forcing incorrect ideas onto the public.

    How many times is an average chunk of money taxed? The corporation pays taxes before they can pay the salary, the individual is taxed again(and again and again) by all the income taxes, when they spend it on a product they pay sales tax, possibly another hidden special tax on the product, the vendor has to pay taxes for his profit, and his vendor does as well, and then maybe the farmer who grew the product, and then his suppliers and on and on. This Economic Stimulus Plan is exactly what America needs. We would see technology in our lifetimes that under current policies our grandchildren would not see until the next century.

    Any of the first three has a chance to win; the fourth does not. Better Clinton lite than Clinton extra-heavy.

    I'll be holding my nose in the voting booth this year. I may even wear a clothes pin on my nose at the polls.

    Hold your nose and vote for someone you don't even like just because they "have a chance to win"..

    I say you deserve what you get then.

    I see that you failed at reading comprehension.
