    Rep. Ron Paul expected to lead House in Federal Reserve oversight

    Paul, who has written a book called "End the Fed," has been a fierce critic of the central bank's efforts to boost the economy through monetary policy.

    "It's an outrage, what is happening, and the Congress more or less has not said much about it," he said.

    Paul said his subcommittee would also push to examine the country's gold reserves and highlight the views of economists who believe that economic downturns are caused by bad monetary policy, not the vagaries of the free market.

    Global organizations like the International Monetary Fund also will come under scrutiny, he said.

    "Eventually we're going to have monetary reform. I do not believe the dollar can be the reserve standard of the world," said Paul, who has called for returning the United States to a currency backed by gold or silver.
    Finally some good news, hopefully Dr. Paul gets the position. Payback has been long overdue for Bernanke and his cronies.

    having read the ranting of extreme right wingers over the years, I can only imagine what it would be like in there. But reading their "thoughts" does give me a glimpse.

    Try to complete this post before you do your usual personal attacks on me because you once again fail to understand what you read.

    Ron Paul is wrong about needing an audit, but in the end one might lead to the right and much needed proper conclusion, which needs to be KILL THE FEDERAL RESERVE, Drive a stake threw the heart of the Creature form Jekyll Island.

    Take a few minutes to learn why I say this in the first video, but better yet if you have the time watch the very informative but much longer second set of videos to learn much more.

    Good, it's about time. I don't really support metal backed currency in this day and age. It's too easy to corner markets, it makes our debt real, and we have less control over the value of it. Which is a necessary control in international economics. However, I do believe that the Fed has been given free reign for far too long now and have behaved improperly with the People's power and authority. It is time that we audit them, they should be audited by Congress yearly. And they are going to have to explain to us all what's on the books.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
