Thank you for posting these videos, I have heard alot about Rep Paul and have only seen his appearances in the Rep debates where I thought he did not
fare well, and to be honest, not very Presidential.
However, I have a much more profound respect for this man after viewing these clips.
He came off as knowledgeable, concerned and well spoken in this hearing.
I know that most of those in DC know what he is talking about, and they do not want to hear this coming from another congressman.
Me, being a simple man, not market savvy, not heavily invested, not looking to make BIG PROFITS, came to much of the same base talking points of this
The citizens of the US, lower to upper middle class are being taken for a ride.
Paul challenged the FED dude on it and the FED dude pointed the finger directly back at congress.
To some extent the FED dude is correct, but IMO it is the concerted effort of the majority of our elected, be it REPS/DEMS, Senators/Congressmen,
They are ALL responsible, the few who would challenge their positions like Congressman Paul, are ceremoniously ridiculed by not only fellow members of
Congress, but increasingly by the MSM.
An example would be the FNC debate where the crowd was allowed to BOO and JEER when Paul was trying to make a point.
Remember having PAUL as POTUS, will change nothing.
, get rid of the incumbents, get new blood in there, get some real CITIZEN representation in there.
Forget the LOBBY, PACS, UNIONS, CORPORATIONS,
Get back to the PEOPLE.
It will take time but it has to start somewhere.
Throw away your party alliances, make a NEW ONE
For the PEOPLE!
Might as well be NOW.
It's time the Congress had the citizens on THEIR back instead of riding on OURS.
