And this is why the economic and political establishment fears Ron Paul as one of the most dangerous men in America.
His innocuous-sounding plan to subject the US central bank to a regular audit of its activities is a Trojan horse for the wider aim to End the Fed – the title of his latest book.
Paul also shows little interest in the schmoozy deal-making that is the stock-in-trade of most Congresspeople.
Nobody succeeds at anything without building a coalition of willing partners, but as any reality show contestant might say, he isn't there to make friends. gridlock can probably expect a Paul administration to attempt very little and accomplish even less.

How do you equate "random gang attack" with "paid thugs? I loved her Ron Paul song back in the '08 election cycle, and saw her perform live it at the Rally for the Republic and at least 2 other occasions, but you'd have to be a huge conspiracy theorist to think some shadowy government agency (or whatever) put out a "hit" on a rather obscure singer in 2008 because she sang a song in support of a political candidate who was hopelessly out of the running by late January of 2008.
Failure is often the norm in Congress, where only 4 percent of proposed bills get a President's signature, but Paul's approach to lawmaking is particularly suited to not getting things done.
For a limited-government advocate like Paul, of course, his record of failure is actually a badge of honor.
I first saw The Interrupters a couple years ago and really enjoyed their libertarian and anti-establishment influences to their music and I knew I recognized the lead singer's voice...
If anything, this situation has proved the government is nothing but a dictatorship backed by deadly force...
no different than the dictatorships in the banana republics, just more polished and cleverly propagandized In a free society there will be bigotry, and racism, and sexism and religious disputes and, and, and.......
But in the US, his books now become instant best-sellers and he tours university campuses pushing a libertarian agenda.
Where once he believed he was seeding the ground for a movement that would triumph well after his own career is over, to his own astonishment, policies he has espoused to almost universal ridicule for decades might just be about to go into law.
