I like Gary and watched this video eagerly. I still like him, but to marginalize what the effects of doing away with the Fed would be, shows me that
he either has not researched this matter enough, or he recognizes it as a third rail of politics which will keep him from getting elected. Indeed,
two past presidents did in fact defy the Fed and issued their own US currency, and both ended up shot in the head. I am not saying that is why they
were both killed, they both were also proponents of civil rights too, but it is a coincidence that could be construed as a warning.
I like Gary's stance on States rights, Nixon's war on some drugs, and many other things. But without a pledge to end the Fed, I cannot support him.
The Fed is at the core of our problems today, and without it life would improve for each and every one of us. And since every dime we US wage
earners pay in Individual Federal Income Tax each year goes to the Federal Reserve Bank for service on our debt interest,
the need for the
Federal Income Tax would be over. This would mean a huge increase in each of our yearly incomes, or the chance to do something constructive with this
money besides making Fat Cats even fatter. Either way this would be a vast improvement over what is being done today.
However, I think Gary would make a decent running mate, not as good as Cynthia McKinney or Jesse Ventura, but a decent one.
I know this won't make the OP happy, but this is what I believe, and I didn't mention the other guy's name in deference, so...
