If it was possible to elect an Idiot with an IQ of about 85 twice, then it is possible to elect another idiot with an IQ of 80. But at this point it doesn't matter because we have a current president with an IQ of about 130 who is still is an idiot.

Because almost anyone is better then Obama.
But, Ron Paul would be best.
It makes no difference who is president as long as they have long enough strings for everyone to have a good yank on, this seems to be the only requirement since Kennedy was assasinated.
The Federal Reserve Board
The three attempts to remove all or part of the Federal Reserve Board failed.
On February 12, 1917, Rep Charles Lindbergh, Sr., father of "Lucky Lindy", offered articles of impeachment against five members of the Federal Reserve Board. The articles were referred to the Judiciary Committee for investigation. On March 3, the Judiciary Committee submitted its report, H.R. Rep. 64-1628, finding insufficient evidence to support impeachment.
Rep. Louis Thomas McFadden's attempt to impeach numerous officials in May 1933 is detailed above...
Secretary of the Treasury William Woodin, Eugene Meyer, Andrew Mellon and Federal Reserve Board
On On May 23, 1933 Rep. Louis Thomas McFadden introduced articles of Impeachment against Eugene Meyer, Secretary of the Treasury William Woodin, two former Treasury Secretaries (Andrew Mellon and Ogden L. Mills); J. F. T. O'Connor (Comptroller of Currency); John W. Pole (former Comptroller of Currency); four members and three former members of the Federal Reserve Board; twelve Federal Reserve Agents; and one former Federal Reserve Agent. There was a hearing on the subject before the House Judiciary committee, but nothing became of it. [McFadden was forced out of office and then murdered when he would not shut up]
On March 7, 1985, Rep. Henry Gonzalez introduced an impeachment resolution, H.R. Res. 101, against Fed Chairman Paul Volcker and ten other members of the Federal Open Market Committee and H.R. Res. 102, against Volcker alone.The resolution was referred to the Judiciary Committee., where it was never heard of again. However, not to be deterred, Gonzalez introduced the bill in each of the next two congresses, and they met the same fate.

Well can you tell me your reasons you think Ron Paul would be a good choice ? what are some key points that make him so different ??
The Irresponsibility of Ben Bernanke and How He Will Destroy the Dollar
....QE has Keynesianism in its roots. All economists know the solution to unemployment is lower real wages. A central part of Keynes’ theory was the notion of money illusion. Keynes believed that workers would not accept nominal decreases in wages but that they could be fooled via inflation, a belief that only an elitist could have. If the cost of living goes up and wages stay the same, then real wages go down and presumably employment goes up (or down less than it otherwise would).
Inflation, the critical tool in the Keynesian paradigm, has been used regularly.
Since the formation of the Federal Reserve, the purchasing power of the dollar has fallen almost 96%.
Could Bernanke Spark a Run on the Dollar?
....The only real fix is to lower the cost of U.S. workers relative to foreign rivals and machines, or else raise their bang for the buck. The latter, while clearly preferable, requires education and training that won’t turn things around overnight.” (“The Fed’s Magic Show Appears to Be Over”, Wall Street Journal)
In other words, the Fed is planning to give every working man and woman in the US a big pay-cut so they can go nose-to-nose with foreign labor. You can see how this blends seamlessly with Obama’s State of the Union Speech where he focused on “competition” as his central theme. More importantly, Obama reiterated his pledge to double exports in the next 5 years. The only way that can be achieved is by destroying the dollar...
Ron Paul on Free Trade
I opposed both the North American Free Trade Agreement and the World Trade Organization, both of which were heavily favored by the political establishment. Many supporters of the free trade market supported these agreements. Nearly six decades ago when the International Trade Organization was up for debate, conservatives and libertarians agreed that supranational trade bureaucracies with the power to infringe upon American sovereignty were undesirable.
