I respect Ron Paul because he is principled. unlike his cohorts in the republican party he actually adheres to his principles and isn't a mere shill for corporate America . Many of his ideas transcend the lines of left vs. right. that's why you have ultra liberals like Barney Frank who work closely with him.
I am 100% behind his push to first audit the fed and then eventually abolish it altogether. Andrew Jackson effectively banned the fed himself in the 1840's. Back then it was called the bank of the United States and was equally corrupt and unaccountable to the people. it needs to happen again
