Response to ProfessionalLeftist (Original post)

8. I read an article about his ineffectiveness as a legislator...

About the time his huge victory with the 'FED audit' legislation passed the house.

He doesn't play well with others and that's why so very few of his legislative efforts are seen all the way through (or acted on at all). I'm sure his 'audit the FED' legislation only passed the house because so many congresspersons knew that the senate wouldn't even look at it.

I believe he has some kind of gold business too; which is probably why he rails on about returning to the gold standard. He expects to personally benefit from that somehow.

I saw a video where he discussed eliminating the FED and he said he didn't know what it would be replaced with; we just need to eliminate it. The man is a loose cannon. Hopefully he won't be back. It's a shame he doesn't take his son out of politics with him.
