Someone needs to be severely reprimanded for even attempting to play games with this process and cheat us out of a leader who might actually hold their feet to the fire. We all know that Ron Paul deserves to chair the House Financial Services Committee panel that oversees monetary policy. Make calls to Boehner’s office and share some thoughts with him on the matter please! This article on RedStateEclectic gives the details:

So here we are, the red-headed stepkids in the GOP. The elected elite love our message (well, not the foreign policy part, which they intentionally downplayed) during the campaign season, but now that the election is over?
Five GOP leadership aides, speaking anonymously because a decision isn’t final, say incoming House Speaker John Boehner has discussed ways to prevent Paul from becoming chairman or to keep him on a tight leash if he does.

I can’t begin to tell you how ticked I am about this. If the GOP followed their own rules, Ron Paul would be sliding into the seat that Barney Frank is leaving. (To get really technical, he should be sliding back into that seat, since it should have been his during the Bush years, too.) But like most of you, I was happy they were finally giving him a subcommittee. No point in complaining about that other thing, especially if Rep Paul wasn’t making it an issue.

It is widely known and appreciated in END the FED circles which is a growing cry as people learn more about the ‘Federal Reserves System’ which isn’t federal and doesn’t have any reserves and needs to be audited.]
