'I am optimistic about our prospects for full and complete report'

U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas
U.S. Rep. Ron Paul has launched his expected campaign, as the new chairman of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology, to audit the Federal Reserve, that secretive, private organization that runs the U.S. monetary supply.
His plan isn't new, and even with Republicans in the minority in the U.S. House a year ago, he collected support from some 320 members * a majority * of the House.
An announcement from his office today confirmed that [color=gold]HR 459, "The Audit the Fed Bill," has been introduced to the 112th Congress. The announcement said it is very similar to HR 1207 from last year, and "calls for a full and complete audit of the Federal Reserve by the Government Accountability Office."
It would require a report to Congress by the end of 2012.

I love Ron Paul. We need him for president. He always seems to see things rationally and thinks of the people, not power and greed.

This is one of the many reasons that I voted for Ron Paul in the last election. Since he is planning on running again in 2012, I urge EVERYONE to please spread the word and cast your vote for Mr. Ron Paul.
Question: Your solutions, on stopping drug trade, is, give up, give up to world drugs. I say zero tolerance, we use the military for aid, we stop it from getting into the country, we cut it off at the source. Why give up on that fight?
Ron Paul: What you give up on is a tyrannical approach to solving a social and medical problem. We endorse the idea of voluntarism, self-responsibility, family, friends, and churches to solve problems, rather than saying that some monolithic government is going to make you take care of yourself and be a better person. It's a preposterous notion, it never worked, it never will. The government can't make you a better person, it can't make you follow good habits. Why don't they put you on a diet; you're a little overweight!
